Oh, Billy...

Er...don't tell me.

You went to a beauty salon!

(ROCK 'N' ROLL MUSlC:

GOLDEN EARRING'S "RADAR LOVE")

# l've been driving all night

My hands wet on the wheel

# There's a voice in my head

That drives my heel

# lt's my baby calling

Says, "l need you here"

# And it's half past four

And l'm shifting gear

# When she is lonely

And her longing gets too much

# She sends a cable

Coming in from above

# Don't need a phone at all

# We've got a thing

That's called "radar love"

# We've got a wave in the air

# Radar love...#

Oh, man!

(MUSIC CONTlNUES)

(MUSIC STOPS)

(BOTH GASP)

You know what, pal?

Getting out

while the getting's good is good.
