Never Heard of You

Please let me in let me into the club
Do you recognize my face, not the one you’re thinking of?
Once upon a time I looked a lot like him
I was younger then handsome and slim
Now I’m waiting at a nightclub door
Flashing some my ID from1984
When I played a mean guitar and I played the fool
Traveled the world I broke every rule

I’m sorry sir I never heard of you
So take your place with the others at the back of the queue
I’m sorry sir it’s just house rules
The policy of the establishment can appear a little cruel…

Hey did I tell you I appeared on top of the pops
I met Ruby Flipper and Sam Fox
I have my very own radio show I’m the kind of person you really ought to know
Slept with three thousand women in my life
I have a wonderfully understanding and supportive wife
She’s at home with the kids doing the chores
She loves every single one of my come back records

I’m sorry sir I never heard of you
So take your place at the back of the queue
I’m sorry sir it’s just house rules
The policy of the establishment can appear a little cruel

Ok I can see we’re not getting anywhere here
I want to speak to the manager I want to make myself clear
This kind of thing never happens to me, you will regret this just wait and see
I know some people and they wouldn’t think twice
About shutting down this shit hole on a Saturday night

I’m sorry sir I hear what you say
But it’s more than my job is worth so please just go away
I’m sorry sir but that’s my final line
You’ve had your fifteen minutes now it’s someone else’s time
Someone else’s time
You’ve had your fifteen minutes
Now it’s someone else’s time
