There was an awful lot of rocking going on that night Cruising time for the young bright lights Just down past the gasworks, by the meat factory door The Five Lamp boys were coming on strong The Saturday night city beat had already started The pulse of the corner boys sprang into action And young Billy watched it all under the yellow street. light And said "tonight of all nights there's gonna be a fight"
There's screaming and crying in the high rise blocks" It's a rat trap Billy and you're already caught But you can make it if you want to or you need it bad enough You're young and good looking and you're acting kind of tough Anyway it's Saturday night time to see what's going down.
