Lyrics

Meanwhile back in the year One,
When you belonged to no-one,
You didn't stand a chance son,
If your pants were undone.

Love this song when the bass kicks in. I remember winning this at a stand on the boardwalk when I was 15. Played the grooves dead on that LP.
Would you like another cup of tea

Hey Steve B, I have the exact same memory from 1974! Love this song, love the album, love the band. I remember opening this up under the tree Christmas morning, 1974.

Brilliant song. I often feel like everybody's on the stage and I'm the only person sitting in the audience.
