Needles you left your heart on the road, still loading PA's you lugged 15 years ago
They were good times but now I've got a life, I've got a wife and I don't have the time
To be rolling joints at 4am after loading out at the Palace or the Prince
I don't want to know how low you'll go
but I know there's still work with the Australian Chisel Show

After the operation, I saw you side of stage at Alternative Nation
Still kicking my arse when the monitors squeal, reset the EQ the whole fuckin' deal
Pull out 2K and everything's right, I love the way you protect those mikes
when the crowd goes wild, yeah when the crowd goes wild.

Come on old buddy
You've got to get it together and save some money
Maybe head north up the coast, buy a little rig, a vocal PA at most
Growing buds on the green green hills, enough to smoke enough to pay the bills
Hey man, I couldn't love you more
But buddy it's not '74 anymore.

The Party Boys tour was like Nui Dat, halfway to Adelaide and then driving back
'Cos we forgot Kevin Borich's Fender Strat, you never forgave yourself for that
But try to heal those scars. 'Cos buddy you gave Borich your own guitar
And needles it seems to me, there's not many left with your generosity
And capacity for hard work.

Loading W Bins up 4 flights of stairs 'cos the lift was fucked and the pub didn't care
Sure we had our fill of babes, they weren't too tidy but they knew how to play
And when it got heavy you were holding my hand, shooting up smack in the back of the van
But I'm off that now, tomorrow I'm off that shit.

Come on old buddy
You've got to get it together and save some money
Maybe head north up the coast, buy a little rig, a vocal PA at most
Growing buds on the green green hills, enough to smoke enough to pay the bills
Hey man, I couldn't love you more
But buddy it's not '74 anymore.

It's not '74, it's not '74
