The Story of Them
    When friends were friends
     And company was right
    We'd talk and talk and sing
     All through the night.
     Morning came leisurely and bright
     Downtown we'd walk
     And passers by
     Would shudder with delight
     Mmmmmm!
     Good times...
     All the cats were there
     Just dirty enough to say
     "We don't care."
     But the management had had complaints
     About some cats with long long hair
     "Look look look"
     And the people'd stare
     "Why, you won't be allowed in
     anywhere"
     Barred from pubs and clubs and
     dancehalls
     Made the scene at the Spanish rooms
     at the falls
     And man, four pints of that scrumpy was
     enough to have you
     Out of your mind.
     Climbing up the walls
     Out of your mind
     But it was a gas, all the same
     Now just around about this time with
     the help of the three J's
     Started playin' at the Maritime.
     That's Jerry, Jerry and Jimmy
     You know they were always fine
     They helped us run the Maritime.
     And don't forget Kit
     Hitting people on the head and
     knockin' them out
     You know he did his best and all
     Was something else...
     Now people say, who are
     Or what are Them
     That little one sings and that big
     one plays the guitar with
     a thumble on his finger runs it up
     and down the strings
     The bass player don't shave much
     I think they're all a little bit
     touched
     But the people came
     And that's how we made our name
     Too much it was
     Yeah, good times
     Wild, sweaty, crude, ugly
     And mad.
     And sometimes just a little bit sad
     Yeah, they sneered and all
     But up there, we just havin' a ball
     It was a gas, you know
     Some good times...
     We are the Them take it or leave it
     You know they took it
     It kept coming
     And we worked for the people
     Sweet sweat
     And the misty misty atmosphere
     Gimme another drink of beer baby
     Gotta get goin' here...
     Blues come rollin'
     Down all your avenue
     Won't stop at the city hall
     Just a few steps away
     You can look up at
     Maritime hotel
     Just a little bit sad
     Gotta walk away
     Wish it well...

     What good is a promise without no truth ?
     I gave my love a fortune in silver and gold,
     I gave it to her lie by lie by lie by lie that I had told.
     I gave my love a story that had no end,
     What good is a story that's got no end ? Tell me.
     I wrote her that we'd get married in about one year's time.
     I wrote her in a boxcar on the Memphis line.
     I sent my love a letter without no stamp - ha!

     Whoa-oh, Friday's child
     ya' can't stop now.
     No.
     Whoa-oh, Friday's child
     ya' can't stop now.
     And I watched you
     'fore you 'came too ol' (??)
     and I tol' ya'
     a long time before ya' ever came to be told,
     "You've got somethin'
     that they all wanna know.
     You gotta hold on
     and never ever let go."
     Whoa-oh, Friday's child
     ya' can't stop now.
     No, no.
     Whoa-oh, Friday's child
     ya' cannot stop now,
     ya' can't stop.
     There ya' go,
     there ya' go, rainbows hangin' around your feet,
     and you're makin' out,
     you're makin' out with everyone that you meet.
     even havin' a ball
     and stayin' up late,
     and watched the sun come up
     'round Nottinghill Gate.
     Whoa-oh, Friday's child
     ya' can't stop now.
