Rookie (25/02/52 / Wanganui)


Have you ever had night when
you left your dull job late.
Attended rock an roll concert date
saw Lou Reed do his thing.
My how he could rock and sing.

Have you ever had night when
before show met girl with cool smile.
Who liked your hip rocking style.
Together you rapped, laughed and joked.
Held hands, drank, kissed and smoked.

Have you ever had night when
you made love with girl after show.
In slow motion nice and slow.
Both feeling hot blooded and high
under Wellington night city sky.

Have you ever had night when
music smoke and girl blew your mind.
Such nights hard to remember or defined.
Was it back in 73 or 74.
Man did you or I score, obey the law.

Have you ever had night when
you saw night through heady haze.
Oh those were the terrace city daze.
When that rocker boy showed his style
memory lived beyond my missing file.

Have you ever had night when
and man who am I writing about.
have you and I any real doubt
well shall I give you single clue.
Am I writing bout rocker me or you.
