    Me and Joey came a long way, to hear that singer
    Play the one that we know so well
    He got up there and gave us the finger
    Told me and Joey to go straight to hell

    Me and Joey in a blacktop garden
    A big old burnin' sun above
    And the fires will soon be starting
    But this ain't no summer of love

    Me and Joey had a good time with some farmer's daughter
    Left her lyin' in a muddy hole
    You charge an arm and a leg for a bottle of water
    Well hey, I guess that's rock and roll

    Me and Joey in a blacktop garden
    A big old burnin' sun above
    And the fires will soon be starting
    But this ain't no summer of love

    Now me and Joey's in his dad's car, overheating
    Two hundred miles I-95
    Joey's dad gives him a hell of a beatin'
    Says we was lucky just to be alive
    Someone's knockin' on the back door, momma's crying
    And my head is hurtin' mighty bad
    Tell you old man, and I ain't lyin
    Best damn time I ever had

    Me and Joey in a blacktop garden
    A big old burnin' sun above
    And the fires will soon be starting
    But this ain't no summer of love
