C79 (Live ’76)

Sit you down,
Sit you down young gentleman
There’s something I want you to know
You keep on asking me
You keep on asking me why
Why are we here?
It started a long time ago
Me and your mum on the night
Yeah, yeah, yeah – we met
I was on the road again
She was in C79
I’ll never, never forget
I’ll never forget that night – no

We met in a back road
Behind the stage
She had the best figure by far
A-huh! A thousand hours I’ve looked at her eyes, but
I still don’t know what colour they are
Me and your mum, on the night
Oh Lord! We met
I was on the road again
She was in C79
She was a junkie then
And I was having a good time
Back on the road again

Oh mama! I was on the road again
Back in sweet 79
I’ll never, never forget
I’ll never forget that time
Back on the road again
Oh I’m travelling that line
I was a pop star then
I’m still having a good time
