Every time I have a date there's only one place to go
That's to the drive in
It's such a groovy place to talk and maybe watch a show
Down at the drive in

Forget about the plot, it'll do very well
But make sure you see enough so you're prepared to tell
About the drive in
I love the drive in
(we love the drive in, we love the drive in)

If the windows get fogged you'll have to take a breath
Down at the drive in
Or the cat dressed in white will scare you both to death
Down at the drive in

A big buttered popcorn and an extra large coke
A few chili dogs and man I'm goin' broke
Down at the drive in
Yeah at the drive in
(we love the drive in, we love the drive in)

Don't sneak your buddies in the trunk 'cause they might get caught
By the drive in
And they'd look kinda stupid gettin' chased through the lot
Around the drive in

If you say you watch the movie you're a couple o' liars
And "remember only you can prevent forest fires"
Down at the drive in

I love the drive in
(we love the drive in, we love the drive in)
Down at the drive in

I love the drive in
(we love the drive in, we love the drive in)
Down at the drive in

I love the drive in
(we love the drive in, we love the drive in)
