The Tango King

Bruce Hornsby

Parking lot's full, the crowd's here
All to see and hear the food and beverage seer
Bumpin' time, everyone side to side
Left allemand, and do-pah-so time

Here she comes, coming round the bend
Been to the bathroom and going back again
Fix the hair - baby, powder that shine
Just to give a good cold shoulder next time

Been around town and we're going again
&"Hallelujah&" when you get to the end
Summer's come now, don't you feel the sting?
All goin' down, looking for the Tango King

Look at Pete, he's a lounge hand
All want to stand in where he stands
Spin that girl 'neath the colored ball
Fancy plaid man's the envy of all

Been around town and we're going again
&"Hallelujah&" when you get to the end
Summer's come now, don't you feel the sting?
All goin' down, looking for the Tango King

All the sounds, and the truth is found
With a drink in hand
Kings of Lounge, and button-downs
Are coming back again, coming back again

Been around town and we're going again
&"Hallelujah&" when you get to the end
Walk on cut glass, wouldn't feel a thing
All goin' down, looking for the Tango King

Been around town and we're going again
&"Hallelujah&" when you get to the end
Summer's come now, don't you feel the sting?
All goin' down, looking for the Tango King
