This old tune is about a couple going on a date, they get to her door, but his hopes for a goodnight kiss are dashed, because she has all kinds of junk in her purse, but can’t find her keys. So he gives up, goes home and goes to sleep. Is she still on the porch?
But there’s more! They have a date the following night, but she can’t find her keys this time either. Looks like he is going to give up again, but he finds her keys in HIS POCKET! Girl, get your locks changed!
