The Angels – Am I ever going to see your face again?

Probably one of the most popular of all pub songs in the late 70s and early 80s, this track by the Angels,  “Am I ever going to see your face again?”   🙂   After Doc Neeson sang the main line “Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again” the crowd would scream back: No Way! Get F**ked! F**k Off! It got to the point where he would pause and point the mike to the audience for them to scream and go wild. –  Enjoy this live performance by the Angels, fronted by the late great Doc Neeson.

Went down to Santa Fe, where Renoir paints the walls,
Described you clearly, but the sky began to fall

Am I ever gonna see your face again?

Trams cars and taxis, like a wax-works on the move
Carrying young girls past me, but none of them are you

Am I ever gonna see your face again?

Without you near me I got no place to go
Wait at the bar, maybe you might show

Am I ever gonna see your face again?

I got to stop these tears that’s falling from my eye
Go walk out in the rain, so no one sees me cry

Am I ever gonna see your face again?

Can’t stop the memory that goes climbing through my brain
I get no answer so the question still remains

Am I ever gonna see your face again?

 

Cold Chisel – Cheap Wine

“Cheap Wine”

Once I smoked a Danneman cigar
I drove a foreign car
Baby that was years ago
I left it all behind
I had a friend, I heard she died
On a needle she was crucified
Baby that was years ago
I left it all behind for my

Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Come-on, come-on, come-on

I don’t mind takin’ charity
From those that I despise
I don’t really need your love
I don’t need your love
Baby you can shout at me
But you can’t meet my eyes
I don’t really need your love
I don’t need your love
I got my

Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Come-on, come-on, come-on

I’m sitting on the beach drinkin’ rocket fuels – oh yeah!
I spent the whole night breakin’ all the rules – oh yeah!
Mending every minute of the day before
Watching the ocean, watching the shore
Watching the sunrise, and thinkin’ there could never be more
Never be more

Anytime you want to find me
I don’t got a telephone
I’m another world away
But I always feel at home
With my

Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Come-on, come-on, come-on

Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Come-on, come-on, come-on
