(NZ Folk Song) (1970)
The other day as I made my way
I heard the music start to play.
Happy sound, people all around,
I knew that I was here to stay.
Suddenly, by the tree, goodness me...
Pretty girl, can I take you home
On a bright and sunny morning?
We danced all night in the pale monnlight,
And now the day is dawning,
She worked all week in a disco-teek,
She looked at me but she didn't speak.
The beat was good, and I knew I should
Have brought an extra pair of feet,
What a day, so I say, hip-hooray!...
"Come on, my lover, give us a kiss!"
(Boom boom boom boom)
I had to weep, 'cause I had to keep
On dancing in a tired heap.
The only sound was the aching ground:
The band had all gone home to sleep.
Day had come, gone the sun, oh what fun.....
