A poetic story using the title of at least one 80's song in each line.

One Night In Bangkok

While Dancing In The Dark

I met a girl named Gloria

Just outside of Paisley Park


She had Bette Davis Eyes

And Legs that ran for days

Born In The U.S.A.

Seemed True Blue in every way


So I said, "My name's Mickey,

Let's Dance, We Got The Beat.

I Love Rock N' Roll

And I think your Truly neat!"


She said, "With Or Without You,

I am gonna Strut onto that floor

And get Nasty as I wanna

Then Kiss you like a whore.


So you Better Be Good To Me.

I'm a Maneater in black pants.

Ain't no Goody Two Shoes

Doin' no Safety Dance."


So we grooved All Night Long

Burning Down The House

With an Eternal Flame igniting

Nobody else could douse


She soon was my Obsession

"Take Me Home Tonight", I said.

"In Your Room --- Let's Go!

I'll Melt With You in bed."


Sexual Healing then ensued

The Pleasure Principle times ten

After, I became the Sharp Dressed Man

And said, "Call Me" as I went


17 Days later

Dr. Feelgood I do see

I Had The Time Of My Life with Gloria

And now there's Always Something There To Remind Me
