12:45 on this Friday night
Feeling tired and sweaty we’ve been pushing the line
Played most of the night to the tables and chairs
A few barstools and a few blank stares

Where were you?
I wanna know where were you?
Where were you when this party
Really starting the roux?

All of a sudden 3 came in
Followed by 6 then by 10
In 15 minutes this place is full
They wanna raise the roof and they’re
yelling for more

Where were you?
I wanna know where were you?
Where were you when this party was
Really starting the roux?

Everybody came in to finish the night
They’re ready to party can you believe
this site
The singer, the drummer, the waitress
trade glances
And the guitar player and bartender
start dancin’

Where were you?
I wanna know where were you?
Where were you when this party was
Really starting the roux?

The bartender’s yelling “last call”
They’re yelling “one more song”
but we’ve played them all
We played past closing now they’re shutting it down
It was empty at nine where were you at then?

Where were you?
I wanna know where were you?
Where were you when this party was Really starting the roux?
