They put a parking lot on a piece of land
Where the supermarket used to stand.
Before that they put up a bowling alley
On the site that used to be the local palais.
That's where the big bands used to come and play.
My sister went there on a SATURDAY.
All her boyfriends used to come and call.
Why not come dancing, it's only natural?
Another SATURDAY, another date.
She would be ready but she'd always make him wait.
In the hallway, in anticipation,
He didn't know the night would end up in frustration.
He'd end up blowing all his wages for the week
All for a cuddle and a peck on the cheek.
That's how they did it when I was just a kid,
And when they said come dancing,
My sister always did.
