Lyrics and chords to "Saturday Gigs" (version one)

Saturday Gigs

(Ian Hunter)

C G
Sixty-nine was cheapo wine,
Am
Have a good time,
E
What's your sign
F C
Float up to the Roundhouse
G
On a Sunday afternoon.
C G
In Seventy we all agreed
Am E
A King's Road flat was the place to be F C G
'Cause Chelsea girls are the best in the world for company.
C G
In Seventy-one all the people come
Am E
Bust a few seats but it's just in fun
F C
Take the Mick out of Top of the Pops
G
We play better than they do
C G
(yeah, yeah, yeah) In Seventy-two we was born to lose Am E
We slipped down snakes into yesterday's news
F
I was ready to quit
G
But then we went to Croydon
(CHORUS)
C Am
Do you remember the Saturday gigs?
F G
We do, we do
C Am
Do you remember the Saturday gigs?
F G
We do, we do
C Am E F
The tickets for the fantasy were twelve and six a time
A fairy tale on sale
(AS EARLIER VERSES)
Oh, Seventy-three was a jambouree
We were the dudes and the dudes were we.
(oh oh oh oh oh)
Did you see the suits and the platform boots?
(oh dear, oh boy, ...)
In Seventy-four on the Broadway tour We didn't much like dressing up no more
Don't wanna be hip - but thanks for a great trip.
(AS EARLIER CHORUS)
Do you remember the Saturday gigs?
We do, we do
Do you remember the Saturday gigs?
We do, we do
But now the kids pay a couple of quid
'Cause they need it just the same
It's all a game
A grown-up game
But you got off on those Saturday gigs
And we did, we did
'Cause you got off on those Saturday gigs
And we did, we did
And we got off on those Saturday gigs
And you did, you did
And we got off on those Saturday gigs
'Cause you did, you did
Don't you ever forget us
We'll never forget you
We're going to sleep now
You better be good, right? (ha ha ha)
See you next time [...?]
Go on for now [...?]
