Barrowland Ballroom Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Oh, the lights outside they're as bright as the sun
They're much brighter than anyone
Oh, the girls in the queue, yes, they're waiting for you
Well they're waiting for their song to be sung

And when the night turns to day and all the people go away
It's not the same, tell me who's to blame?
And when the stars shine so bright on the cold December night
I wish that I was on the stage

Oh, won't you take a ride with me through the Barrowland history?
And I'll sing you a song or two
People they may stop and stare but baby I just don't care
It's only me and you

And the drink and dance and drugs you know
It's all part of the show we go to, maybe I should tell you
That people they may stop and stare but baby I just don't care
Tonight it's only me and you

Oh, nothing beats the feeling of the high Barrowland ceiling
When the bands start to play
Won't you buy me a drink and I'll tell her what I think
If she gets in my way

And when the night turns to day and all the people go away
It's not the same, tell me who's to blame?
And when the stars shine so bright on the cold December night
I wish that I was on the stage

Oh, won't you take a ride with me through the Barrowland history?
And I'll sing you a song or two
People they may stop and stare but baby I just don't care
It's only me and you

And the drink and dance and drugs you know
It's all part of the show we go to, maybe I should tell you
That people they may stop and stare but baby I just don't care
Tonight it's only me and you

And when the night turns to day and the lights they fade away
I wish that life and love would pass me by
And when the band stops a song because there's something going on
Well there is magic in the air I swear

And I wish that I saw Bowie playing on that stage
I wish that I saw something to make me come of age

Oh, won't you take a ride with me through the Barrowland history?
And I'll sing you a song or two
People they may stop and stare but baby I just don't care
It's only me and you

And the drink and dance and drugs you know
It's all part of the show we go to, maybe I should tell you
That people they may stop and stare but baby I just don't care
Tonight it's only me and you
