So Where's The Part Tonight Lyrics

All Lyrics by Kenny Ramage

So Where’s The Party Tonight
Words and Music by Kenny Ramage

I “used” to do this every Friday night. Some members of the 
band still do. - Kenny

Sitting in a room, playing cards and drinking beer.
Talkin’ ‘bout our friends, which ones a slut and who’s a queer,
The wind is blowin’, it looks like it could rain,
Need to get outside before we go insane,
A single voice is heard to say,
 “So Where’s The Party Tonight?”

Du, du du du du, du du du du du du du du.
Du, du du du du, du du du du du du du du.

We hit the road as one, P.O.H. our destination,
Laughter rings out loud, heading to intoxication,
 “Hi guys, we’re here, give us drinks in two’s,
We’ve come along tonight to help you drink your booze,”
A single voice is heard to say,
 “Is This The Party Tonight?”

Du, du du du du, du du du du du du du du.
Du, du du du du, du du du du du du du du.

The time is dark o’clock, the bar is closing ‘till tomorrow,
Loud groans are heard from all, Cry’s and sobs of 
drunken sorrow,
We pour ourselves outside, we cannot feel no pain,
It’s time to go on home, or find a bar again,
A single voice is heard to say,
 “So Where’s The Party Tonight?”

Du, du du du du, du du du du du du du du.
Du, du du du du, du du du du du du du du.

		

So Where’s The Party Tonight - Refrain
Words and Music by Kenny Ramage

A fitting end to a good party. - Kenny

The party's over now, we're all just sittin' in the kitchen,
Better clean up soon, before the women all start bitchin',
We pick the bottles up all scattered on the floor,
I find a mate of mine passed out behind the door,
I wake him up to hear him say, say, say,
 “So Where’s The Party Tonight?”

Du, du du du du, du du du du du du du du.
Du, du du du du, du du du du du du du du.


Crowd Invasion
Words and Music by Kenny Ramage

Straight forward, driving rock song with lots of guitars
 – I enjoyed recording this one and enjoy playing it live. - Kenny

With a sound like a gun,
I hit my G string on the run.
With a flick of a wrist,
Eddie starts with his old drum twist.
All we need is a Crowd Invasion,
To make this gig a real legend in our minds.

Bassman gives a wry smile,
Slappin’ notes you can hear for a mile.
Mickey fingers his axe,
Screamin’ notes blasting out from the stacks.
All we need is a Crowd Invasion,
To make this gig a real legend in our minds.

I hear the DJ say,
 “Free beers for the people today.”
The crowd doesn’t go far,
Across the room to invade the bar.
All we need is a Crowd Invasion,
To make this gig a real legend in our minds.
All we need is a Crowd Invasion,
To make this gig a real legend in our minds.


Mobile Party
Words and Music by Kenny Ramage

I’ve always fancied getting myself a truck or a van, fitting it 
out with a gigantic sound system, and just driving around 
visiting pals. - Kenny

Sittin’ in my wheels on a summers night,
A young girl walked by on the side,
She was a tall one, a blond one,
An absolutely cool one,
She asked if I could give her a ride.
In my souped up bakkie with the Mobile Party inside.

 “Jump in,” I said, “Just watch your head,
Take care how you move,
The speakers are a little bit wide.”
There were eleven, and seven,
Big amps there just to drive ‘em,
Compression units build in the side.
Of my souped up bakkie with the Mobile Party inside.

So let’s get movin’, Get the party away,
We started groovin’, and rock ‘n roll ‘n,
We’re gonna wake the night up today.

So let’s get movin’, Get the party away,
We started groovin’, and rock ‘n roll ‘n,
We’re gonna wake the night up today.

We drove around town ‘till the break of day,
The population out of their beds,
They were singin’, and prancin’,
Majority were dancin’,
Music runnin’ round in their heads,
From by souped up bakkie with the Mobile Party inside. (3x)


Rickshaw Baby Blues
Words & Music by Kenny Ramage

This started off as two songs that I decided to merge into one.
The reggae style in the verse came from the band during rehearsals.
The lyrics are absolute nonsense. - Kenny


Living with confusion, Seems to be the modern way,
Take a look around you, At the thoughts of today,
Soaring with the eagles, Flying in the summer sky,
Come on with me baby, ‘Cos I believe in you.

Chorus :

All you need is love, And your Rickshaw Baby Blues.
All you need is love, And your Rickshaw Baby Blues.
All you need is love, And your Rickshaw Baby.
Runnin’ round town in the night time, ‘Cos I believe in you.

Willy, willy womble, a man I knew about the town,
Dances with his shoes on, so we take him away,
Doozy, woozy Suzy, Smilin’ in the family way,
Talkin’ to her belly, she says, I believe in you.

Chorus

I believe in, I believe in You,
I believe in, I believe in love

Wanna be a loser, Listen to the words I say,
Wanna go to places, far, far away,
Keep up with the Joneses, Rather an expensive way,
Listen to the music, ‘cos I believe in you.

Chorus


Yeah, Yeah
Music by Eddie Heusdens and Kenny Ramage
Lyrics by Kenny Ramage

One afternoon myself and Eddie were jamming when we 
came up with this riff. I decided to put some “marine training” 
type lyrics to it. - Kenny

Drinkin’ all day then I party all night,
Still feelin’ pissed go to work on my bike,
Sleep in my office for the rest of the day,
Boss comes in sez I’ll dock your pay.

Chorus :

I said “Yeah, Yeah”.
“Yeah, Yeah Cool”.
I said “Yeah, Yeah”.
 “Yeah, Yeah Cool”.

Drive into town on Route 22,
Pulled off the road by the Boys in Blue,
 “Out the car and please walk the white line”.
Keep a steady head and I’ll do just fine.

Chorus

All the women in town are after my body, yeah, yeah.
All the ladies just want to talk to me,
Life and soul of everybody’s party,
Invite me along,
Make me sing a song,
Put a beer in my hand,
You’re a lifelong friend.

Walked into work guitar in my hand,
Been up all night just playin’ with the band,
Said to the boss “Aren’t you glad that I’ve come”?
He told me straight “You’re a no good bum”..

Chorus

All the women in town are after my body, yeah.
All the ladies just want to talk to me,
Life and soul of everybody’s party,
Invite me along,
Make me sing a song,
Put a beer in my hand,
You’re a lifelong friend.


Goin’ Home
Words and Music by Kenny Ramage

This started off as a country type song but didn’t quite get there.
This is normally our last song of the night at live gigs -Kenny

The party went on ‘till half past three,
The crowd where all on the floor,
We tried to play the last song of the night,
They kept on yellin’ for more.

I’m goin’ home,
Yeah, I’m goin’ home.

Eventually we called it a night,
Fingers where blistered and raw,
The gigmobile we packed up full and tight,
We quickly slid shut the door,

Chorus:

I’m goin’ home,
Yeah, I’m goin’ home.
I’m goin’ home,
Yeah, I’m goin’ home.

Got into bed with my clothes on,
Too tired even to snore,
Dreamt of having my own roadie,
Woke up my back was still sore.

Chorus

I hit the road with my family,
Two guitars and a dawg
I don’t know where I’ll be sleepin’ tonight,
I know I’ll sleep like a log.

Chorus 2x



Nothin’ Worries Me
Words and Music by Kenny Ramage

Hey, I love playing reggae and we have a great time playing this one.
This is dedicated to Rizzlas - Kenny

Every morning when I wake up,
I smoke a very, very, very small tree,
I float out of the front door,
To appreciate the scenery.

I say, “Yeah, Look at me,
I live my life with my whacky baccy,
I can be a bird, I can be a bee,
Real life’s got nothin’ on me.”

I chill out to the music,
Make plans for the perfect job,
A roadie for the Whalers,
Smoke a couple of joints with Bob.

So let’s get high,
Let’s get free,
Nothin’ Worries Me.

At night I meet my woman,
She feeds and waters me,
Long hair screwed up in dreadlocks,
She works hard to put up with me.

I say, “Yeah, Look at me,
I live my life with my whacky baccy,
I can be a bird, I can be a bee,
Real life’s got nothin’ on me.”

Life can only be this way,
If you follow my advice,
No work and no worries,
Just a way of feelin’ nice.

So roll us a joint,
Let me make a point,
Nothin’ Worries Me - 4x


Rock ‘n Roll Man II
Words and Music by Kenny Ramage

This was always the time to hit the parties. You’ve finished 
playing for the night, you hit the scene and get everybody 
going again. - Kenny

I got to the party ‘bout two a.m.
The only music playin’ came from KFM,
I opened the door of the gigmobile,
To let out the music that the people could feel.

I woke them all up with the sound of the Stones,
Some real funky music that vibrated their bones,
A little bit of punk to get rid of the yawns,
That kept the party goin’ ‘till the break of dawn.

Chorus :

 ‘Cos I’m a Rock ‘n Roll Man, Baby,
Yeah , I’m a Rock ‘n Roll Man, Baby,
I don’t cause no trouble, and I don’t take no shit,
 ‘Cos I’m a Rock ‘n Roll Man.

The music blasted out from my speaker van,
Until we got a visit from a policeman,
We drank some tequila ‘till the sun did rise,
And filled up our stomachs with some cold pork pies.

 Chorus  (3x)


I Believe in Angels
Words and Music by Kenny Ramage

Have you ever thought “Stuff it” and running away from home?

Sittin’ at the station,
Waitin’ for a train,
Ready to start a new tomorrow,

Ticket in a one hand,
Luggage at my feet,
No need to say goodbye.

Chorus :

I believe in Angels,
When my backs against the wall,
Do you believe in Angels?
Or not at all, ‘cos I believe in.

Living in a new home,
Strange as it seems,
Nobody asks about my name,

Relative confusion,
Suffers with the night,
Time to say goodbye.

Chorus

Looking to the future,
Misty as it seems,
I can see the changes coming,

Starting with a new life,
Lonely as it seems,
Time to say goodbye.

Chorus

Nothing to live for,
No reason to be,
Won’t you shake my hand of sorrow,
