Peter Skellern - You're a Lady 1973

Now the evening has come to a close
And I've had my last dance with you
On to the empty streets we go
And it might be my chance with you
So I might as well get it over
The things I have to say
won't wait until another day

You're a lady, I'm a man,
you're supposed to understand
How these things are often planned to be

You're romantic, I'm a fool,
You're the teacher, I've come to school
Here I sit and hope that you'll love me

You're pure magic, unlock my chain
Nothing ventured nothing gained
And so I say with no restraint, be mine, be mine

Hard to answer I agree
But then I've got to know
I'm not asking you to marry me
Just a little love to show
All I know I could make you happy
So the things I have to say
Won't wait until another day

You're a lady I'm a man
You are suposed to understand
How these things are Often planned to be

You're romantic, I'm a fool
You're the teacher, I've come to school
Here I sit and hope that you'll love me

You're pure magic, unlock my chain
Nothing ventured nothing gained
And so I say with no restraint, be mine, be mine

Wonderful classic, I could listen to it all day, I don't know what the hell was wrong with some of that lot in the audience, they were acting like a bunch of totally brain-dead imbeciles with no appreciation for the fact that they were in the presence of one of the greatest songwriting talents there ever was in this country, it was wasted on them, were they dragged off the street and told to come in and listen or something like that?

Well I was born in 1964, if you don't think 52, soon to be 53 is very old then you're right, I'm not very old Lol, however, I'm not sure what you thought I was saying above or what you seem to be disagreeing with me about, maybe you need to clarify what it is that you think I'm getting wrong because I don't know what the issue is that you have here, I suggest you read my posts again, I think maybe you've taken me the wrong way, let me make it sparkling clear here, I think this song is one of the best classics of the 1970's, I was just making a point about the audience who didn't seem to appreciate this fact, even if they did later on, that doesn't alter the point, hope this is understood? Many thanks.

That was a lovely song. Just a shame he had the most rude, inattentive audience ever. Can't believe they were so rude, it must have been really hurtful and offensive to someone as sensitive as he was.

They were probably on a promise to see a different act that was to follow. It's like this song is for couples, not to be foisted on to singletons on a day trip to the TV studio. Plus, it's not what you would immediately call a "catchy" song. On a separate note, don't you think Victoria Wood sounded a lot like this? Now, where did I place that box of Benson & Hedges...? 1 second ago•

I think he was looking up behind him at the screen, or trying to.

used to hear Terry Wogan playing this on the breakfast show in the early 70s on my way to school. Tel always had an ear for a great tune. RIP Terry.

The girl watching is caught up with the melody I think. Am I the only one wanting to repeatedly punch the guy with the beard in the mouth?

Peter Sutcliffe sits frustrated behind the woman he'd like to murder. So he opts for  fag.

Alf Hall On closer inspection,woman goes for fag too! Must've been something going on, tch, swinging seventies and all, I was looking for a prawn cocktail to come out! Thanks,your post helped me through a bad morning.Niiice!!
Alf Hall
Thanks for that ....... but seriously, what is wrong with those people? Sutcliffe is bad but not alone. And it must have been pre-CGI so the crowd was actually there in the same room as Skellern. Why he chose to continue beggars belief. Chinning a few of them would have been a good northern option. Sad to lose him. great lyrics that say it all. They touch my soul and like him I'll take them to my grave.
