A song about a dude going to a music festival. The narrator gets super jealous.


Memphis to Miami on a Saturday and Mama don't know.
Driving to the ocean just to find the tunes in your headphones.
I was getting gas on 65, takin' my time,
Just making it home from the 9 to 5 when I felt you rollin' by.

Ooh, Rock Steady.

Tannin' in the sun while the rhythm booms
through the bottles in your hand.
Tokin' up a fatty in the parking lot,
Sleepin' underneath the sand.
"I've seen 'em onece--no, I've seen 'em twice, back in '83.
They'll never let you know the songs they're gonna play
they like to keep a mystery."

Ooh, Rock Steady.

Make a bit of money working overtime,
Saving up for a dream--
But you envy me and I envy you
and everyone in between.
I was getting gas on '65, taking my time
Makin' it home from the 9 to 5
When I felt you rollin' by.
