lyrics

Started out on a journey
In the winter of '79
Me and my rock 'n' roll band
In a Ford Econoline

Everything was goin’ easy
Till the van started breakin' down
Saw a mansion up on the hillside
On the outskirts of the town

The winter of our discotheque
That Ford was such a wreck
The wind blew cold
The winter of our discotheque

We climbed up to the doorway
Asked if we could use the phone
We heard the pulsing disco beat
Of 'Miss You' by The Stones

'Shakedown Street', 'Heart of Glass'
'Another Brick in the Wall' all made us shake
Kiss's 'I Was Made For Lovin' You'
Jesus that one took the cake

Beneath the dancefloor is where they tried to lead us
Tales of pop suckcess they tried to feed us
"Bands come in these doors with guitars…
But leave here as lobotomized disco stars"

The winter of our discotheque
Miles from Quebec
The wind blew cold
The winter of our discotheque

SOLO

In the laboratory they tried to keep us
I said, "thanks for the food, I hate to be rude
But we gotta go right now”

The winter of our discotheque
Neither Shakespeare nor John Steinbeck
Saw what we saw
The winter of our discotheque

Was it some kind of nightmare
I wondered when I finally came to
Our drummer’s feet played a disco beat
I said, “tell me friend, when did they get to you?”

The winter of our discotheque
Short as Toulouse-Lautrec
The wind blew cold
The winter of our discotheque

The winter of our discotheque
High as we could get
The wind blew cold
The winter of our discotheque
Oooh, the winter of our discotheque
Yeah, the winter of our discotheque
