Lyrics
Chorus.
They’re starting to move, they’re starting to groove
At the waxwork’s party weekend
They’ve been here before, they’re back for some more,
At the waxworks party weekend –
Yeh, yeh – there’s a video playing from a time we’ll never forget,
Yeh, yeh – gonna stop look and listen, if I don’t then I know I’ll regret.
Verse 1.
The drapes wanna turn back the clocks to rock’n’roll heaven,
We’d be way back in fifty five if the world would just let ‘em.
They got their values but you can bet –
Rock and roll is number one.
Verse 2.
Leopard skin Norm’s got a coat that needs some pressing,
He can dance to the bop he can jive rock’n’roll and no messing,
It’s his own world of make belief.
and captured in rpm
Chorus.
. They’re starting to move, they’re starting to groove
At the waxwork’s party weekend
They’ve been here before, they’re back for some more,
At the waxworks party weekend –
Yeh, yeh – there’s a video playing from a time we’ll never forget,
Yeh, yeh – gonna stop look and listen, if I don’t then I know I’ll regret
Verse3.
Ancient grease stains that glisten on a velvet collar,
Grecian quiffs stand up and defend their honour,
Greasy brylcreem that’s layered on-
Built up over time.

Quality lyrics, John. And a head nodding groove! The layered vocals work a treat and it is great to hear some vintage rock piano. Some nice effects on the guitars, too. Thanks, Peter.

Hi Peter
re the lyrics - I'm not sure if the subjects they're relating to would be that flattered by them though they were well intention-ed - a bit of a change for me I think! Thank you for listening. John.

Great stuff here...
...really pulled me into this, didn't you? I really enjoyed listening and checking this one out, thanks! I remember in that great film "Sunset Boulevard", William Holden's character referred to these old time actors and actresses who hung around Norma Desmond as "the waxworks"; meaning they were kind of "suspended" in time somehow--I think that is the flavor of this song. Keep up the fine work! Michael

Thank you Michael
You got the idea, I can remember the moment that inspired this song, it was at a rock'n'roll weekend and there was a fella of about sixty standing by a record stall in a leopard-skin drape suit, everything was bathed in a tinted artificial light and the whole thing reminded me of a waxworks exhibition. Must say though that everyone was very friendly as well.
