    "Main Street" is a song about a middle aged man reminiscing about a cute young stripper he had a major crush on, back when he was a shy teenager.

    Most of the other strippers had a hard edge- they'd learned to be tough and to keep customers at arm's length. But this one stripper seemed much younger, sweeter and more innocent than the others. The narrator of the song imagined that, somehow, he might actually be able to talk to her and form a real relationship with her. But he never had the guts to actually approach her.

    Many, many years later, the narrator admits he still thinks about that girl, and sometimes wanders down Main Street, where she used to dance, and tries to picture her.
