We are Drive-In mutants

We are not like other people

We are sick

We are disgusting

We believe in blood

And breasts 

And beasts

If life had a vomit meter

We’d be off the scale

As long as one Drive-In remains

On the planet earth

We will party like jungle animals 

We will boogey till we puke

The Drive-In will never die
