lyrics

That Wonderful Night

That night, that wonderful night
With the boys in the band on tour
The lights shone bright
And I couldn’t ask for more

Do you remember that show in that boutique hotel
It was an old age pensioners’ home
They gave us custard creams and supper as well
And irritable bowel syndrome

Everyone cheered and applauded
Most of them were half dead
With champagne I was rewarded
We got cold tea instead

It was swell
It was hell
It was grand
We were panned
The trumpeter got into a fight
It was hot
It was not
What I thrill
I got ill
That wonderful/terrible/marvelous/miserable totally memorable night

We played a magical set at the Albert Hall
We were busking for tips in the bar
I went to the races and gambled them all
So we had to sleep in the car

We dined out each night, alfresco
We ate our chips in the rain
We had the Finest Range from Tesco
Reduced to clear again

C’etait bon
What a con
Such a hit
It was shit
The drummer set himself alight
C’etait chic
She’s a freak
What a life
With a knife
That wonderful/terrible/marvelous/miserable totally memorable night

That night
It was the last resort
That wonderful night
The band agreed, we should abort
With the boys in the band on tour
I couldn’t leave she’d taken my passport
The lights
The others scarpered on the midnight train
Shone bright
I'm left alone with her it's inhumane
And I couldn’t ask for more
I watched my future going down the drain

That night
We danced until the dawn
That terrible night
Just like, A Star Is Born
With the boys in the band on tour
...
The lights
It was a shock it was a big surprise
Shone too bright
They had disappeared before my eyes
And she kept wanting more
But that was years ago, how time flies
Always flowers in my dressing room
The sweet smell of success is my perfume
I will survive is now my nom de plume
And I’ve never asked for more…
