The Sideboard Song

Album: Rock and Roll Party (1980)
Charted: 55
  • Not a few songs have been written about chairs and beds, but one piece of furniture that doesn't inspire too many ditties is the sideboard, and this one is no exception. "The Sideboard Song" is a patter song about a family dispute - mother can sort it out, I've got my beer in the sideboard here.
  • Also known as "The Sideboard Song (Got My Beer In The Sideboard Here)", the single was released September 1, 1979 on the EMI label backed by "Sunday", and was re-released as the B Side of "Rabbit" on November 29 the following year on their own Rockney label. >>
