The mist rolls off the beaches, the train rolls into the station
Weekend happiness seekers, pent-up saturation
Well, we don't mean anyone any harm, we weren't on the Glasgow train
I see you at the Pleasure Beach, roller-coasting heroes

Big Dipper riding
Oh, we'll give the local lads a hiding
If they keep us from the ladies
Hanging out in the penny arcades
Shaking up the Tower Ballroom

Throwing up in the bathroom
Landlady's in the backroom
Oh well, I'm the Big Dipper it's the weekend
Big Dipper it's the weekend rage

Rich widowed landlady give me your spare front door key
If you're 39 or over, I'll make love to you next Thursday
Oh well, I may stay over for a week or two, drop a postcard to my mum
I'll see you on the waltzer, we'll go big-dipping daily

Big Dipper riding
Oh, we'll give the local lads a hiding
If they keep us from the ladies
Hanging out in the penny arcades
Shaking up the Tower Ballroom

Throwing up in the bathroom
Landlady's in the backroom
Oh, well, I'm the Big Dipper it's the weekend
Big Dipper it's the weekend
Big Dipper it's the weekend rage
