  • Lyrics: It’s Sunday again - Joe is polishing his shoes and digging outhis best tie - to put onHe’s gonna walk along, but maybe he’ll get a taxi back,he’s not as young as he used to be, and God how he feels it.He has a pint in the bar-to see how the old boys arebut there’s just him left now.Eileen’s here alone - the couple she usually comes with havegone on holiday - they’ve got a caravan down the coastThey keep inviting her, even though they know she can not go‘cos she is still working - to make end meetIt was nothing she’d prepared for, a widow’s pension of warand nothing moreSo strike up the band, for tonight is the night, the boys are gonna play a song that will last for all of time.The lights are just right, and the floor is alive,with those who will dance a waltz at Pelaw club tonightIts busy tonight, there’s a family sitting where Joe usually sitsso he finds himself - a seat next to EileenThey start a talking - even though you know they’ve never metThey start reminiscing bout when they were youngJoe buys her a drink, and Eileen starts to think, Would Joe like to dance?So strike up the band, for tonight is the night, the boys are gonna play a song that will last for all of time.The lights are just right, and the floor is alive,with those who will dance a waltz at Pelaw club tonight
