He sees her at the same time every nightAt the Mexican discothequeShe gives him French kissesHe gives her French cigarettes
They sit at the same table every timeThe lights are lowBut their eyes shineJust digging the music from those sweet soul bands
She keeps him outta fights, holds on to his handHe whispers slowly tonightÃ¢Â€Â™s the nightMonths of planning so itÃ¢Â€Â™s gotta be rightUnder the table her bag is busting at the seamsShe made sure to bring everything
Moonlighting, theyÃ¢Â€Â™re leaving everythingMoonlighting, theyÃ¢Â€Â™re losing all their friendsMoonlighting, itÃ¢Â€Â™s the only way, itÃ¢Â€Â™s frighteningBut it means theyÃ¢Â€Â™ll stay togetherTheyÃ¢Â€Â™re gonna make it together
His blue morris van is parked in an alleyJust by Montague streetHis friend Eddie he did the respraySo he couldnÃ¢Â€Â™t drive it all last week
And it cost most of the money that he had saved upTo pay EddieÃ¢Â€Â™s receiptBut he figures itÃ¢Â€Â™s worth it Ã¢Â€Â™cos the disguise is a mustWhen they go missing theyÃ¢Â€Â™re gonna look for the van first
She whispers slowly itÃ¢Â€Â™ll be alrightI took some cash from my building societyAnd my monthly check came in just rightIf only they knew they werenÃ¢Â€Â™t giving it away
9:15 Monday morning at the printing worksThe boss notices someoneÃ¢Â€Â™s not clocked inAnd the water department of the council offices has a messageThat Mrs. parkÃ¢Â€Â™s daughter is missing
Meanwhile the Carlisle turnoff of the M6 MotorwayDrinking cold black coffee eating hot cup cakesShe stares at him with his beard unshavedWonders at his powers of staying awake
He whispers slowly you did just fineThey shared the driving all through the nightShe laughs my mother will have lost her mindWeÃ¢Â€Â™re only ten miles to Gretna theyÃ¢Â€Â™re three hundred behind
