Crazy Dancing Days

Dropped my first trip in the Lots Road, the colours rang, the music flowed
I felt a love of every kind, I can honestly say it blew my mind
I floated out in to the psychedelic night, London was ablaze with shimmering light

And the tumble of the coins, would give you the mystical lines
And the signs, of the stars would tell you
The pathways to take, what choices to make
Well the stuff we were into then, looking back, never ceases to amaze

Back in the crazy dancing days

Les Cousins, Soho was the place to be, for fiery young folkies just like me
The place would start at 7 o'clock, sometimes the queue was round the block
At 11 they'd close up and clean up and then, midnight it would start all over again

One night I played there, I went on at 3
Open D, A, G, acoustic mayhem, some young men
From Norway, in off the street, in their sleeping bags, fast asleep at my feet
And at dawn I walked home through the early morning warm summer haze

Back in the crazy dancing days

Now it's just a 60's theme for an ad
Or a Facebook page about the music we had
But for those of us who were there
With bell-bottom loons and flowers in our hair
It was a revolution, not a craze
Those crazy dancing days


I met a young man who’d run from home, a lady found him out on the street alone
Typical city, way people meet, they wound up living at her flat in Beaufort Street
When I met them they were happy, together it seemed, she was 60 something, he was 16

The Fleet Street papers, they tried to blacken her name
And shame, but those were the 60's, no hurt no blame
And nobody cared, about the wrongs or rights of what they did with their nights
That odd-matched pair of love-struck castaways

Back in the crazy dancing days
