  • When I wake up in the morning light
    I pull on my jeans and I feel all right
    I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on (Ch-ch)
    I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on (Ch-ch)

    It's the weekend, and I know that you're free
    So pull on your jeans and come on out with me
    I need to have you near me, I need to feel you close to me (Ch-ch)
    I need to have you near me, I need to feel you close to me

    You and me, we'll go motorbike riding in the sun and the wind and the rain
    I got money in my pocket, got a tiger in my tank
    And I'm king of the road again

    I'll meet ya in the usual place
    I don't need a thing, except your pretty face
    And I need to have you near me, I need to feel you close to me (Ch-ch)
    I need to have you near me, I need to feel you close to me (Ch-ch)
    I need to have you near me, I need to feel you close to me (Ch-ch)

    You and me, we'll go motorbike riding in the sun and the wind and the rain
    I got money in my pocket, a tiger in my tank
    And I'm king of the road again

    When I wake up in the morning light
    I pull on my jeans and I feel all right
    I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on (Ch-ch)
    I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on (Ch-ch)
    I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on (Ch-ch)

    When I wake up in the morning light
    I pull on my jeans and I feel all right
    I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on (Ch-ch)
    I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on (Ch-ch)
    I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on (Ch-ch)

    When I wake up in the morning light
    I pull on my jeans and I feel all right
    I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on (Ch-ch) Writer/s: DAVID DUNDAS, ROGER GREENAWAY

  • Lz from BurghMisheard lyric "Got Money in my pocket, got a tiger in my pants...".

    O don't recall this song hardly at all back in the 1970s. I just heard it more a few years ago on online radio, then of course, on that jeans commercial. It's catchy in the same way "Ariel" is. That Dean Friedman gem.
  • Jojo Dancer from At Large I thought this song was a jingle for a Jean's store in pnw called the squire shop Jean's store.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn this day in 1977 {February 4th} David Dundas performed "Jeans On" on the NBC-TV late-night musical variety program, 'The Midnight Special'...
    At the time "Jeans On" was in it's second of two weeks at #17 on Billboard's Top 100 chart, that would also be it's peak position on the chart and it spent a total of twenty one weeks on Top 100...
    And on August 7th, 1976 it peaked at #3* {for three weeks} on the United Kingdom's Official Top 50 Singles chart...
    David Paul Nicholas Dundas will celebrate his 75th birthday in four months on June 2nd, 2020...
    * And from the 'For What It's Worth' department, the three weeks that "Jeans On" was at #3 in the UK, the #2 record for those three weeks was "A Little Bit More" by Dr. Hook and at #1 for those three weeks was "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" by Elton John & Kiki Dee...
  • Zabadak from London, EnglandMisheard lyrics: "I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my aubergines on!"
