Gonna have a clambake


Gonna have a clambake

Hey, listen, world

You've gotta know

I'm cuttin' loose and lettin' go

Who needs the worry and the strife?

Life can be a ball

now just followin' my life


Gonna have a clambake


Gonna have a clambake


Gonna have a clambake

Look for the brightest lights in town

That's where you'll find me

hangin' round

I've got this feeling to be free

I pick and choose the life I want

And that's the life for me


Gonna have a clambake

Hey! Clambake

Gonna have a clambake

- Hey, Pop, get that, will you?

- You betcha.

- What can I do for you?

- Fill her up while I grab something to eat.

All right. I'll be glad to, young fella.

- So you goin' out with me or not?

- On that motorcycle of yours! Forget it.

- Ham on rye and a cup of coffee, please.

- Yes, sir.

If you don't mind my sayin' so,

that is a gorgeous hunk of automobile.

- I'm glad you like it.

- Ham sandwich and coffee.

- Is that your wheel over there?

- Almost. Three more payments.

- Got one like it at home. Scott Heyward.

- Tom Wilson.

- Hey, fella. I can't find that gas tank.

- I'll show you where it is.

And your radio,

I swear it's ringing like a telephone.

It is a telephone.

Sure must have an awful long cord!

- Hello.

- One moment. I've a call for you.

- Scott? Is that you?

- Ellie? How'd you find me?

Well, I've only been trying every mobile

operator south of the Mason-Dixon line.

Your father's fit to be tied.

Hold on a minute.

I have Scott on the line.

Oh, yeah, yeah.

Give me that horn there.

Hello, Scott.

Why, this is your daddy talkin'.

Tell me, boy. Where in tarnation are you?

- Right now I'm in a Heyward oil station.

- That's a step in the right direction.

Maybe you'd be good enough to tell me

why you took off from here

like a big, scared jack rabbit.

Look, Pa, sorry I left without telling you.

You were busy and I...

I just wanted to get away for a while.

- Get away, huh? Or run away?

- Mr. Heyward...

And what about that fiance of yours

you left practically waiting at the altar?

I thought she was the real thing this time.

I did too, till I found out

she just loved your money.

Scott, that's what money's for, to buy

goodies you need to make you happy.

- There's more to it than that, Pa.

- More to it than money?

Scott, you get rid of them tomfoolish ideas

of yours and come back home.

Your new job as vice president

is waitin' for you.

OK, Pa. I'm Duster Heyward's son.

I own more wells than I know about. Does

that mean I deserve to be vice president?

- That's more than enough for me, son.

- But not for me.

Look, Pa, I wanna be able to do

something on my own. Goodbye, Pa.

Bye? Hey, Scott...

Well, za-zoo.

- That's a good-lookin' ski there.

- Thank you.

If you're in Miami Beach, fall by the

Shores Hotel, look me up in the ski shop.

I'm gonna be the new instructor. Ought

to be a ball, a lotta chicks, boat races.

If I get down that way, I'll do that.

Right now I got no plans, just problems.


Look, I couldn't help overhearing.

You really Duster Heyward's son?

- Yeah.

- What problems could you have?

Mr., your sandwich is ready and waiting.

I've been trying to get that gal

to go out with me for the past hour.

- She takes one look at that, you're in.

- Exactly! One look at my car.

- So?

- So just once I'd like to know it's me.

- Not my car, not my money.

- You call that a problem, huh?

Any time you wanna change places,

just say the word.

I'm on the right track for lots of kissin'

So that old greenback
