"Thanks For the Night" as written by and Raymond Ian Burns....
Well thanks for the night
The swag and a lovely affray
Thanks for the night
You give and we take it away

It was a smash and grab conflab
An all night show and we weren't nabbed
A thrill for one and all, a ball
Join us or be a fool
Thanks for the night

Well I know a place
Where we can have fun tonight
Yeah I know a place
Where we can be one tonight

Old Bill & Ben and all his friends will be there
Standing in a row
The News At Ten and ITN will be there
Don't be slow

The fires ignite
All down the road
The scene explodes and I say
It's been alright
Thanks for the night
A fine affair
The narks are there
And we don't care 'cause I say
It's been alright
Thanks for the night

The fires ignite
All down the road
The scene explodes and I say
It's been alright
Thanks for the night
A fine affair
The narks are there
And we don't care 'cause I say
It's been alright
Thanks for the night

The fires ignite
All down the road
The scene explodes and I say
It's been alright
Thanks for the night

A fine affair
The narks are there
And we don't care 'cause I say
It's been alright
Thanks for the night

    General CommentSeems to be about a all night nicking spree, but also fits in pretty damn well for a date. Think it'ld be a mean song to play at the end of a concert, in an encore but of a tip ya hat at the crowd.
    Bit of a gem in my opinion. Why've I got the first comment?
