Flash & The Pan - Hey Saint Peter
Tekst en muziek: Harry Vanda en George Young
(1977)






The morning was cold and lonely
The city lights old and gray
The sun unrolling, trying to smile
Gave it all away



The honky-tonk called a stranger
The stranger couldn’t pay the bill
Made a stand
Raised his hand
Sang a song, no time to kill



I said: “Hey, hey, hey Saint Peter
I’ve got a tail to tell
I’ve just been down
In New York town
It really feels like hell
It really feels like hell”



Billy was out of fashion
Manhattan was years ago
Yesterday he wasted time
Money was kind of flow



Billy had friends of glory
Billy was a friend of fame
Took a chance
Raised his hand
Sang a song, now he’s back in the game



I said: “Hey, hey, hey Saint Peter
I got a tail to tell
Just been down
In New York town
It really feels like hell
It really feels like
Hell”



I said: “Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Saint Peter
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Saint Peter
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Saint Peter
It really feels like hell
It really feels like hell”



Hey Saint Peter
Before you ring your bell
Just come down
In New York town
Done my time in hell
Done my time in hell



I said: “Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Saint Peter
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Saint Peter
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Saint Peter
It really feels like hell
It really feels like hell”



“It really feels like
Hell”
