CROSS the LINE (lyrics)

VERSE:
The music is cranking
The lighting is low
There’s one crowd in the kitchen
One crowd hall

Bob is grabbing a refill
Deb is killing the chips
Francine is a dancing queen
With her fingers on her hips

CHORUS:
Everybody was getting funky
Everybody was feeling fine
Everybody was feeling lucky
Until they cross the line

VERSE:
Darlene is the hostess
She rents this pad
When she can't make the payment
She calls up her Dad

Don't need no invitation
Just show up if you know
That its party time in Apartment 9
Grab somebody and go

CHORUS:
Everybody was getting funky
Everybody was feeling fine
Everybody was feeling lucky
Until they cross the line

BREAK: First half of verse

VERSE: (second half)
You gotta know when to call it
Gotta know when to go
No reason to stall it
You know when you know

CHORUS:
Everybody was getting funky
Everybody was feeling fine
Everybody was feeling lucky
Until they cross the line
