Flying through the night
In a beat up wagon
A mike stand up my jacksy
Give me a beer
And I'll stand on a chair
And slip into something sexy
Black Cat Woolwich
The Tiger's Head
The Cafe des Artistes
The Revolution
And the Bag O' Nails

I'll see you down the Speak'
Your Ma said you slept real good
In your food last night
But you couldn't hold it down
And you broke up
a damn good fight
Ligging at the Old Marquee
Spinning Jack a line
Even he knew better than me
Back in sixty nine

Sixty nine, sixty nine,
Sixty nine, sixty nine

On the road to Paradiso
Back of your head
Got to pay some dues
Rugged looked down
As the Thames swallowed
His life at the Boathouse, Kew
Hot girls, no AC
Cheap TV,
Sleep on the floor
Hallelujah what's a roadie
Hush my baby
Sleep no more
