Neon glow in the mist, customers loiter, come and go,
Squeaky door, cold beer, funny toy for the kiddo.
Pet supplies, owner-builder quake retrofit.
Things you need, or homies, for the hell of it.
Fights and shots and public scenes,
Ethnic Wedding upstairs, Now that's what we call green!
Film festival venue, Bait shop wish,
Proud pictures of dead stars and fish.
Magazines you might not like,
Beef jerky special, take a bite.
Car show, Flea Market, Parade in town,
For this corner store, another party down.
Hey Joe, Jerry, Josie, and helpers all,
Soon new partners dance with your old Hall.
