Getting crazy on the waltzers but it's the life that I choose
And I been riding on a ghost train where the cars they scream and slam

She had a ticket for the races just like me she was a victim of the night
I had the one arm bandit fever there was an arrow through my heart and my soul
And the big wheel keep on turning neon burning up above
Come on and take a low ride with me girl

She said you are the perfect stranger she said baby let's keep it like this
Hey mister give me two give me two 'cause any two can play
And the big wheel keep on turning neon burning up above
Come on and take a low ride with me girl

Money for muscle another girl I dig
And rock away rock away
And girl it looks so pretty to me just like it always did
Oh girl it looks so pretty to me just like it always did

She put her hand in my pocket I got a keepsake and a kiss
I could have caught up with her easy enough but something must have made me stay
And the big wheel keep on turning neon burning up above
Come on and take a low ride with me girl

Searching everywhere from steeplechase to palisades
To rock away rock away from Cullercoats and Whitley bay out to rock away
And girl it looks so pretty to me like it always did
Girl it looks so pretty to me like it always did
