1. A Spendid Time

From the recording A Spendid Time

<p>Our tribute to the Beatles</p>


<p>I used my time machine to chase a timeless frequency</p>
<p>And rode it to the Reeperbahn in Hamburg Germany</p>
<p>October1960, thinking it&rsquo;ll be so cool</p>
<p>To walk into a club and see the bands from Liverpool</p>
<p>I found the Kaiserkeller just by following the noise</p>
<p>The pounding beat of music, and the rowdy German boys</p>
<p>When Rory Storm went on a break the other band came on</p>
<p>Back then it was Stu and Pete with George, Paul and John</p>
<p>Even then the lads were good at stirring up a scene</p>
<p>The girls went wild when John was singing &ldquo;Sweet Little Sixteen&rdquo;</p>
<p>The drummer from the Hurricanes was sitting on my right</p>
<p>I asked him why they&rsquo;d come so far to play there every night</p>
<p>He said they&rsquo;d go &lsquo;bout anywhere to get a paying gig</p>
<p>And who knew? Maybe one day some of them would make it big</p>
<p>I raised my glass to him and said &ldquo;I know that you&rsquo;ll go far.</p>
<p>If someone else is Best, you&rsquo;re still the one to be a star&rdquo;.</p>
<p>Early in he morning in that gangster neighborhood</p>
<p>I met George, Paul and John and told them, &ldquo;Hey, you boys are good!</p>
<p>But wearing all that leather makes you look like two bit thugs&rdquo;.</p>
<p>When I suggested love beads they said I must be on drugs.</p>
<p>I thought of dropping hints about the winding road ahead</p>
<p>I let them go on laughing down the Reeperbahn instead</p>
