Lyrics
Hangin' out at Frankie's; everyone was stoned
The player, it was playin' soemthin' really gone
Some people, they were dancin', and, some we're clappin' hands
And, some others were just lyin' close, makin' sweet romance
But, the hour was growing later, and, the party had sure been fun
And, when Frankie said: "C'mon, let's break it up", everybody spoke out as one

Play that fast thing one more time
It does something to me, and, it sure feels fine
Play that fast thing one more time
We're gonna be in clover, don'tcha dare turn it over
Why don'tcha play that fast thing one more time

All over but the shouting, the end of another show
A hundred-and-ten behind 'em, there was forty-four more to go
All the people had gone crazy; they'd been jumpin' up and down the aisle
And, the mem'ry of their faces, how it made them poor boys smile
When somebody said "Oh, c'mon now! Let's make it to the hotel room..."
The doors flew back, in come the pack, shouted "Honey, you spoke too soon!"

Play that fast thing one more time
It does something to me, and, it sure feels fine
Play that fast thing one more time
You're gonna get some action if we don't get satisfaction
No one leave the building 'til we play it one more time!

All over but the shouting, the end of another show
A hundred-and-ten behind 'em, there was forty-four more of those shows to go
Somebody said, somebody said, "Let's make it to the hotel room..."
When the doors flew back, in come the pack, shouted "Honey, you spoke too soon!"

Play that fast thing one more time
It does something to me, and, it sure feels fine
Play that fast thing one more time
You're gonna get some action if we don't get satisfaction
I said, no one leaves the building 'til we play it one more time!

It does something to me, and, it sure feels fine
Play that fast thing one more time
You're gonna get some action if we don't get satisfaction
I said, no one leaves the building 'til we play it one more time!
