Strangers waving, the band is moving
Through the streets of old Pasadena
Miles and miles of roses and gasoline motors
Once it passes by, twice as fast it's gone

Some of these folks stayed up all night
Just to see the same old street differently

Driving drunk last night, head cocked to one side
My old girlfriend, was my girlfriend
I leave you with December, today I'm starting over
Somewhere I know it's snowing, but I left my overcoat back home

Some of us folks stayed up all night
Just to see the same old scene differently

All the cars are shiny
All the cops are smiling
All the mothers are pretty
All the children are smart
Everybody's happy
Everybody's happy
Everybody's happy
Everybody's happy
