The Lyrics

There are a lot of females on the Penn State Shenango campus who know me as the balloon man once every week. As newcomers arrive on the campus every year, the number of girls I meet increases. Some of them want in on the balloons.
It's a Friday at the campus and my classes
are over right now
Time to go to Kraynak's and pick up an
order of balloons
And I have some money to burn today
For balloons to give to my girls
While the prospective recipients get
so excited for this

Now I realize that girls want my balloons
How can you tell how it used to be
When there's nothing left to see

During the fall semester I make a deal
with a female friend
For every Penn State football team win she
gets a Penn State balloon from me the next week
And all the girls line up for a balloon forming
a line like a snake
And they're happy when they get a balloon
Of their favorite color each week

Now I realize that girls want my balloons
How can you tell how it used to be
When there's nothing left to see
Paperback novels make young girls dream and
Judy's spending quieter days in the stream
With Melissa, Kristan, Dawn, and Stephanie, they've been
such good friends to me

Now I realize that girls want my balloons
How can you tell how it used to be
When there's nothing left to see

Now I realize that girls want my balloons
How can you tell how it used to be
When there's nothing left to see

Nothing left to see
Heaven knows but Mike decides
When the girls want his balloons

You can dance (you can dance)
Every dance (you can dance)
Becomes a learning experience
(You can dance)
You can smile (you can smile)
Every smile (you can smile)
Will get the whole world smiling, too

But don't forget to get a balloon
And have some fun with it, too
Save the last one for me

And beach music beach music beach music just plays on
