Anybody remember this one?



I know, you know this ain't gonna last forever
Let's take advantage while we still can
I'm sure that you'll find the days couldn't get any longer
Day after day it's gettin' old fast

Let's have a knock down, drag out rock 'n' roll party in the streets
Get all the boys together have them tell everybody that they meet
Friday night at midnight we're all gonna get what we need
Let's have a knock down, drag out rock 'n' roll party in the streets

You know, I know we ain't gonna show no mercy
To anyone that tries to get in our way
I'm sure that you'll find we got to put the word out for certain
Once the party gets started we're all here to stay

Let's have a knock down, drag out rock 'n' roll party in the streets
Get all the boys together have them tell everybody that they meet
Friday night at midnight we're all gonna get what we need
Let's have a knock down, drag out rock 'n' roll party in the streets

Let's have a knock down, drag out rock 'n' roll party in the streets
Get all the boys together have them tell everybody that they meet
Friday night at midnight we're all gonna get what we need
Let's have a knock down, drag out rock 'n' roll party in the streets

Let's have a knock down, drag out rock 'n' roll party in the streets
Get all the boys together have them tell everybody that they meet
Friday night at midnight we're all gonna get what we need
Let's have a knock down, drag out rock 'n' roll party in the streets

Just downloaded this one. Don't know how I could've forgotten Jr. Walker and the AllStars??!!

"Shake and Fingerpop"

Put on your wig, woman
We goin' out to shake an fingerpop
Hey, baby!
I said, put on your wig, woman
We goin' out to shake an fingerpop
(Hey, girl!)
We gonna get out on the floor, now
Dance like we never dance befo'

'Right on!'

I said, look at them people
Tryin' the big, Fly
Doin' The Barracuda
The Jerk and The Twine

Kick off your shoes, baby
An get in the groove
'Cause when you hear the music
Yo' feet has got to move

I said, put on your wig, woman
Goin' out an shake an fingerpop
(That's what I'll do')
Gonna get out on the floor, now
Dance like we never danced, befo'
(Dance, woman!)

I said, do The Boomerang
The Twine and The Jerk
They're jammin' at the bandstand
So, ev'rybody work

I said, put on your wig, woman
We goin' out to shake an fingerpop
(Stay, is what I'll do)

Gonna get out on the floor, now
Dance like we never danced, befo'

(Shake, girl!)

Richard Thompson "I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight"

I’m so tired of working every day,
Now the weekend’s come I’m gonna throw my troubles away
If you’ve got the cab fare, mister you’ll do all right
I want to see the bright lights tonight

Meet me at the station don’t be late
I need to spend some money and it just won’t wait
Take me to the dance and hold me tight
I want to see the bright lights tonight

There’s crazy people running all over town
There’s a silver band just marching up and down
And the big boys are all spoiling for a fight
I want to see the bright lights tonight

Meet me at the station don’t be late
I need to spend some money and it just won’t wait
Take me to the dance and hold me tight
I want to see the bright lights tonight

A couple of drunken knights rolling on the floor
Is just the kind of mess I’m looking for
I’m gonna dream ‘till Monday comes in sight
I want to see the bright lights tonight

Meet me at the station don’t be late
I need to spend some money and it just won’t wait
Take me to the dance and hold me tight
I want to see the bright lights tonight

Take me to the dance and hold me tight
I want to see the bright lights tonight

(All)
Now, if all that ash used to be hash
What the heck time is it now?
Last thing I remember I was looking at my stash
Just before the late late show
Then we threw a couple movies in the VCR
And I remember driving Buddy home in the car
Well, we got not gas so we couldn't have got far...
What the heck time is it now?

(Jian)
Oh, my weary and aching head
(Murray)
You know, I gotta get some thinking done
(All)
I can't remember where I put the bed...
(Dave)
I ain't moved it since '71

(Jian)
I got a real funny feeling I'm about to fall down
I hope I find my way to the ground
I hate to spend the whole night floating around
In the condition I'm in.

(Dave)
First thing in the morning I'm giving myself a break
You kind of get an early warning when you're fingernails and eyelids
ache
Well, it might be closer to the afternoon
But the big point is, I'm gonna do it soon

(All)
There ain't nothing underneath this moon
Will ever make me toke another take!

..But what's that on the table?
Why, it looks like a little chunk
I bet old Petey dropped that there
He always was a drunk
Well, it looks so good just sitting there
I believe what I need is a bite of the hair
Doggone stuff is like a breath of fresh air
Think I'm gonna sell the farm (and buy more)
Think I'm gonna sell the farm (find the door)
Think I'm gonna sell the farm.
