|" Standing in the rain with his head hung low |

| Couldn't get a ticket, it was a sold-out show |

| Heard the roar of the crowd, he could picture the scene |

| Put his ear to the wall, then like a distant scream |

| He heard one guitar, just blew him away |

| He saw stars in his eyes, and the very next day |

| Bought a beat up six-string, in a second-hand store |

| Didn't know how to play it, but he knew for sure |

| That one guitar felt good in his hands, didn't take long to understand |

| Just one guitar, swung way down low |

| Was a one way ticket, only one way to go " - Forigner, Juke Box Hero |
