I used to work nights with my dad
It was the best job I ever had
Until some blokes on their bikes came through
Said, "come on down the Youth Club and see what's new"

Well, come on, come on, come on
Let's have some fun tonight

Went to the dance like they said I should
It cost three bob, but it was quite good
The band were jumpin' and a-jivin' around
Their 20 Watt amps really made a sound

Well, come on, come on, come on
Let's have some fun tonight

Well, I'll have a cup of tea and then I'll change my name
And I'll put my records o-ah-o-ah-on
'Till all the geezers in the flat complain
Wish that rockstar bloke was gone
Instrument!

Let's have some fun tonight

Sold all my records and I bought a mike
I found some blokes who do what I like
I saw the vicar who ran the hall
He said, "we can rehearse there any time at all"

Well, come on, come on, come on
Let's have some fun tonight

We're really rocking now, I've got a bird
She says we are the best band she's ever heard
I've got a bike and I'm having a time
But my mum keeps saying "Rock'n'Roll's a crime"

Well, come on, come on, come on
Let's have some fun tonight
All right, all night!

Well, come on, come on, come on
Let's have some fun tonight
