                             (Eric Carmen)

As described by the composer in his capsule review of _Side 3_: "Surf noises
and seagulls preface an exciting number about getting it on after the prom,
or the like".

	They don't expect us 'til tomorrow

	I've waited so long to be there
	                D        B
	We'll take the highway, just outside the city
	             D                B                 G
	'Cause the night's young and you're so pretty, yeah
