    Lyrics

    Joey Keys was from my neighborhood
    Some would say that he was bad and Joe thought that was good
    They say got the name "Keys" picking locks
    He never really robbed no one; it sure amused the cops
    Joey's parents owned a restaurant
    After closing time they'd give us almost anything we'd want
    I never cared that Joey Keys was slow
    Though he couldn't read or write too well, we'd talk all night long.
    Come on, come on, come on
    What you gonna do with your life?
    Oh come on, come on, come on
    Chasing sparks in the nights
    His old man said tomorrow is a ride that goes nowhere
    But I'll pull some strings, get blackbird wings
    And break us out of here

    Chorus: Hey Joey
    C'mon tell me 'bout your dreams
    Tell me all the sights you're gonna see
    Tell me who you're gonna be
    Hey Joey
    You're gonna kiss the girls goodnight
    Sometimes you got to stand and fight
    It'll be alright
    You're gonna find a better life

    See Joe was 3 years younger to the day
    Acting like a little brother, but became my ball and chain
    I met this girl named Rhonda, she fell for me
    She said, "I might learn to like him but love ain't built for three."

    Chorus: Hey Joey
    C'mon tell me 'bout your dreams
    Tell me all the sights you're gonna see
    Tell me who you're gonna be (who you're gonna be)
    Hey Joey
    You're gonna kiss the girls goodnight
    Sometimes you got to stand and fight
    It'll be alright

    Hey Joey

    News gets around in this fading neighborhood
    The old man lost the restaurant
    He drinks more than he should
    It's time for Joey Keys to do some good
    Pick the lock off our lives, let's get out of here like we always said we would

    Chorus: Hey Joey
    Tell me 'bout your dreams
    Tell me all the sights you're gonna see
    Tell me who you're gonna be (who you're gonna be)
    Hey Joey
    You're gonna kiss the girls goodnight
    You got to stand and fight
    It'll be alright
    We're gonna find a better life
    Find a better life
    Find a better life
    Oooh, oooh

    Come on, come on, come on
    What you gonna do with your life?
    Oh come on, come on, come on
    Chasing sparks in the nights
    Tell the old man it's tomorrow; we're off to find somewhere
    I pulled those strings, got blackbird wings
    And got us out of here...
