"Nite Klub" as written by Jerry Dammers, John Edward Bradbury, Roderick James Byers, Terry Hall, Lynval Golding, Stephen Graham Panter and Neville Egunton Staples....
Is this the in place to be?
What am I doing here?
Watching the girls go by, spending money on

Sleep all day
It's the only way
I'm a parasite
I creep about at night

(Nite klub) is this the in place to be?
(Nite klub) what am I doing here?
(Nite klub) watching the girls go by, spending money on

Hey, hey, I don't work
'Cause I don't have to
I don't have to work
There's no work to do

(Nite klub) I'm a member of the nite klub, oh, oh
(Nite klub) a fully paid-up member of the nite klub

I won't dance in a club like this
All the girls are slags
And the beer tastes just like piss

I'm a parasite (nite klub)
I creep about at night (nite klub)
Yes, I'm a member of the Nite Klub
A fully paid-up member of the Nite Klub

(Nite klub) is this the in place to be?
(Nite klub) what am I doing here?
(Nite klub) watching the girls go by spending money on beer

    - All too true of most clubs I've got to say.

    General CommentI've always tried to decipher what 's being shouted at the beginning of the song? It's audible on the live versions too.

    General CommentGoldfiner covered this song and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones make a reference to this song (I won't dance in a club like this/All the girls are slags/and the beer tastes just like piss) in their song, "Aint Talkin' 'Bout Love."

    General CommentFrom what I have read, there was a span of unemployment during the 70s in the U.K.

    "Hey, hey, I don't work
    Cos I don't have to
    I don't have to work
    There's no work to do"
