The Lyrics

I was working in a movie theater in 1988 when "Midnight Run" was showing. This was a really funny movie. Problem was, I f---in' spent the next three f---in' months f---in' talkin' like Robert F---in' DeNiro. You know what I'm sayin'? You don't? Then shut the f--- up and read the f---in' parody! And rent the movie: It's a road picture, a buddy movie, a screwball comedy, a crime drama, a mob flick and "The Odd Couple" all rolled into one!
This is the story of John Mardukas and Jack Walsh.
It's only a movie, and it's not true, it's false.
Jack was a Chi-town cop, but now bounties he'll hunt
'cause his career by a big mob boss, it got stunt.

The Duke worked for that boss, Jimmy Serrano.
He's now in Vegas, but he's still full of guano.
Duke embezzled fifteen million from that capo.
Jack got him before he could run.

Go on, Jack and Duke's midnight run.
Go on, Jack and Duke's midnight run.
Go on, Jack and Duke's midnight run.
Go on, Jack and Duke's midnight run.

Alonzo is an F.B.I. inspector.
Jack sets off his big bullcrap detector.
Serrano wants Jack and Duke, he's sent hitmen.
If either one catches them, well, that's it, man.

Jack must get the Duke from New York to L.A.
by twelve o'clock midnight on this week's Friday.
If he does, a hundred thousand he'll be paid.
If you only saw all the ways they're waylaid.

Singin'
Go on, Jack and Duke's midnight run.
Go on, Jack and Duke's midnight run.
Go on, Jack and Duke's midnight run.
Go on, Jack and Duke's midnight run.
Go on, Jack and Duke's midnight run.
Go on, Jack and Duke's midnight run.
Go on, Jack and Duke's midnight run.
Go on, Jack and Duke's midnight run.
