lyrics

1946 and he had just turned 24 / He was looking for some fun after returning from the war / In a brand new demob suit with Brylcreem taming every curl / And moves out on the floor to melt the hearts of pretty girls // She’d been working hard at home, while the men were all away / And dancing with her sister at the Hammersmith Palais / But now the war was over perhaps in answer to her prayers / There was hope in every heart amidst the music in the air // And on ladies’ night every Wednesday / The service men don’t pay / Come pick your man and dance the night away / At the Hammersmith Palais // Well his footwork caught her eye and she thought ‘that man can dance, / But if he thinks he’ll take me home tonight he hasn’t got a chance’ / So she floated ‘cross the dancefloor but before she’d said a thing / He took her by the hand just as the band began to swing // On ladies’ night every Wednesday / The service men don’t pay / Come pick your man and dance the night away / At the Hammersmith Palais // And they danced ‘till closing time, and when the night came to an end / He kissed her on the hand and said I hope we meet again / She said I’ll be here next Wednesday if you care to come along / The Harry Roy Band’s playing and they play my favourite song // On ladies’ night every Wednesday / The service men don’t pay / Come pick your man and dance the night away / At the Hammersmith Palais
