COOLEY:
It looks like

she drug in a real crowd,

don't it?

PRICE:
Sure does.

Looks like it's gonna be

a full house tonight.

Hey, what do you say we run in

and check out the show?

(PEOPLE CLAPPING)

How we doing here?

We all set?

Hey, big crowd, huh?

Yeah, and not one of them's

got a pot to piss in.

I never should have let

myself get talked

into this dumb benefit.

I could be making some

real money tonight. All right,

let's get this thing started.

(CROWD CHEERING)

MAN:
And now back home again

the one, the only

Ellen Aim!

(BAND PLAYING)

Lying in your bed

and on a Saturday night

You're sweatin' buckets

and it's not even hot

But your brain

has got the message

And it's sending it out

To every nerve

and every muscle you've got

You've got so many dreams

That you don't know

where to put 'em

So you'd better turn

a few of 'em loose

Your body's got a feeling

that it's starting to rust

You'd better rev it up

and put it to use

And I don't know

how I ever thought that

I could make it all alone

When you only make it better

And it better be tonight

I'll be there for you tonight

Even if you don't have

anywhere to go

You go down on the pedal

and you're ready to roll

And your speed

Is all you'll ever need

All you'll ever need to know

Darlin', Darlin'

You and me

we're goin' nowhere slowly

And we've gotta get away

from the past

There's nothin' wrong

with goin' nowhere, baby

But we should

be goin' nowhere fast

It's so much better

goin' nowhere fast

Stalkin' in the shadows

by the light of the moon

It's like a prison

and the night is a cell

Goin' anywhere

has gotta be heaven tonight

'Cause stayin' here

has gotta be hell

Dyin' in the city

like a fire on the water

Let's go runnin'

on the back of the wind

There's gotta be some action

on the face of the earth

And I've gotta

see your face once again

And I don't know where

I ever got the bright idea

that I was cool

So alone and independent

But I'm depending on you now

And you'll always be

the only thing that

I just can't be without

And I'm out for you tonight

I'm comin' out

for you tonight

Even if you don't

have anywhere to go

You go down on the pedal

and you're ready to roll

And your speed

Is all you'll ever need

All you'll ever need to know

Darlin', Darlin'

You and me

we're goin' nowhere slowly

And we've gotta get away

from the past

There's nothin' wrong

with goin' nowhere, baby

But we should be

goin' nowhere fast

Everybody's goin'

nowhere slowly

They're only fighting

for the chance to be last

There's nothin' wrong

with goin' nowhere, baby

But we should be

goin' nowhere fast

Godspeed

Godspeed

Godspeed

Speed us away

Godspeed

Godspeed

Godspeed

Speed us away

We're goin' nowhere fast

Godspeed

We're goin' nowhere fast

Godspeed

We're goin' nowhere fast

Godspeed

Speed us away

We're goin' nowhere fast

Godspeed

We're goin' nowhere fast

Godspeed

We're goin' nowhere fast

Godspeed

Speed us away

(CROWD CHEERING)

Now!

Hey, what the hell

do you think you're doing?

Get off the stage!

Hey, you guys

shouldn't be doing this!

Hey, we don't want

no trouble!

Let me go!

Let me go!

No!

Let me go!

Put me down now!

Let me go! Let me go!

Help me!

(SIRENS WAILING)

Get them!

(SCREAMING)

Them Goddamn

son-of-a-bitches!

Hang a one-eight.

What's with that guy?

Watch out!

These guys are gonna pay!

(SCREAMING)

Someone help me!

Stop it!

Stop it!

Stop it!

Can I help you?

Coffee.

Cream and sugar?

Just black.

(MAN WHISTLING)

Oh, you guys really know

how to come through a door.

What are you trying to prove?
