Theme Song for Bristol and Levi: Paradise By The Dashboard Light

Boy:

I remember every little thing
As if it happened only yesterday
Parking by the lake
And there was not another car in sight
And I never had a girl
Looking any better than you did
And all the kids at school
They were wishing they were me that night

And now our bodies are oh so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And were glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Cmon! hold on tight!
Cmon! hold on tight!
Though its cold and lonely in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard light

Girl:

Aint no doubt about it
We were doubly blessed
Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barely dressed

Aint no doubt about it
Baby got to go and shout it
Aint no doubt about it
We were doubly blessed

Boy:

Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barely dressed

Baby dontcha hear my heart
You got it drowning out the radio
Ive been waitin so long
For you to come along and have some fun

And I gotta let ya know
No youre never gonna regret it
So open up your eyes I got a big surprise
It’ll feel all right
Well I wanna make your motor run

And now our bodies are oh so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And were glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Cmon! hold on tight!
Cmon! hold on tight!

Though its cold and lonely in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard light
Oh it’s cold and lonely in the deep dark night
Paradise by the dashboard light

You got to do what you can
And let mother nature do the rest
Aint no doubt about it
We were doubly blessed
Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barely —

Were gonna go all the way tonight
Were gonna go all the way tonights the night

Were gonna go all the way tonight
Were gonna go all the way tonights the night

Were gonna go all the way tonight
Were gonna go all the way tonights the night

Were gonna go all the way tonight
Were gonna go all the way tonights the night

Radio broadcast:

Ok here we go, we got a real pressure cooker going
Here, two down, nobody on, no score, bottom of the ninth, theres the wind-up,
And there it is, a line shot up the middle, look at him go. this boy can really
Fly! hes rounding first and really turning it on now, hes not letting up at
All, hes gonna try for second; the ball is bobbled out in center, and here
Comes the throw, and what a throw! hes gonna slide in head first, here he
Comes, hes out! no, wait, safe – safe at second base, this kid really makes
Things happen out there. batter steps up to the plate heres the pitch – hes
Going, and what a jump hes got, hes trying for third, heres the throw, its
In the dirt – safe at third! holy cow, stolen base! hes taking a pretty big
Lead out there, almost daring him to try and pick him off. the pitcher glances
Over, winds up, and it bunted, bunted down the third base line, the suicide
Squeeze is on! here he comes, squeeze play, its gonna be close, heres the
Throw, heres the play at the plate, holy cow, I think hes gonna make it!

Girl:

Stop right there!
I gotta know right now!
Before we go any further –!

Do you love me?
Will you love me forever?
Do you need me?
Will you never leave me?
Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
Will you take me away and will you make me your
Wife?

Boy:

Girl:

Boy:

I couldn’t take it any longer
Lord I was crazed
And when the feeling came upon me
Like a tidal wave
I started swearing to my God and on my mothers grave
That I would love you to the end of time
I swore that I would love you to the end of time!

So now I’m praying for the end of time
To hurry up and arrive
Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you
I don’t think that I can really survive
I’ll never break my promise or forget my vow
But God only knows what I can do right now
I’m praying for the end of time
It’s all that I can do
Praying for the end of time, so I can end my time with you!!!

Boy:

It was long ago and it was far away
And it was so much better than it is today

Girl:

It never felt so good
It never felt so right
And we were glowing like
A metal on the edge of a knife

 

They don’t write (or perform) songs like this anymore, eh?
