The Last of the Teenage Idols

This song is by The Sensational Alex Harvey Band and appears on the album Next... (1973) and on the live album BBC Radio 1 Live In Concert (1995).

You can call me the sheik of tomorrow, sleeping on the burning sand
You can call me the king of the cowboys, 'cause everybody shakes my hand
You can call me the soft-shoe banana. You can peel away my skin
You can call me the Last of the Teenage Idols

You can hang me in the morning. Sell my ball and chain
You can send me in the ocean and I'll swim back home again
You can make love to my secretary. You can steal my money too
You can call me the last of the Big Time Spenders

Grab your partners come inside. Outside there's no place to hide
Tell your story to the man next door. He has heard it many times before
Stayin' out late to play my game. Ah doo dah diddy dah dah ding ding ding
Hold my hand, here we go, come on baby don't be slow

'Cause I'm the Last of the Teenage Idols
The Last of the Teenage Idols

Sixteen ducks, only one drake
All flocked together in the middle of the lake
They all had boats and rubbers on
A big sand castle at the bottom of the mote
All three. Wouldn't me.
I wouldn't be at all surprised
Hold tight, all night keeping me satisfied

'Cause I'm Last of the Teenage Idols
The Last of the Teenage Idols

A big fat mama on her hands and knees
Cryin' out baby, baby please, please, please
I gotta keep going. I can't keep still
I gotta get to the top of the hill
OK, all right, I wanna stay out late tonight
Hold my hand, don't be slow
Come on baby here we go

I'm the Last of the Teenage Idols
The Last of the Teenage Idols
The Last of the Teenage Idols
Last of the Teenage Idols

I'm the Last of the Teenage Idols
The Last...
