    I can think of two but there must be more?



    Then one night in the lobby of the Commodore Hotel
    I chanced to meet a bartender who said he knew her well
    And as he handed me a drink he began to hum a song
    And all the boys there, at the bar, began to sing along
    If you'll be my Dixie chicken, I'll be your Tennessee lamb
    And we can walk together down in Dixieland
    Down in Dixieland




    Oh, your old hometown's so far away
    But inside your head there's a record that's playing

    A song called "Hold On", hold on
    Babe, you gotta hold on
    Take my hand, I'm standing right there, you gotta hold on

    You probably think this song is about you

    We were hopping and bopping to the Crocodile Rock

    Ok, I think it refers to a dance rather than a song, but maybe close enough?

    I was twenty one years when I wrote this song
    I'm twenty two now, but I won't be for long

    Love this song and this one of my favourite lines ever for its funny quirkiness.

    I saw two shooting stars last night
    I wished on them but they were only satellites
    Is it wrong to wish on space hardware
    I wish, I wish, I wish you'd care
    Lol
