“The boys in the barroom living it up, shootin’ off energy. The guys on the sidewalk workin’ it out, talkin’ ’bout Menergy. The boys in the back room are laughin’ it up, shootin’ off energy. The guys in the street talk checkin’ you out, talkin’ ’bout Menergy. The boys in the bedroom lovin’ it up, shootin’ off energy. We all know the feelin’, it’s no mistery, talkin’ ’bout Menergy” – Patrick Cowley
