  • Geno, Geno, Geno, Geno, Geno!
    Geno, Geno, Geno, Geno, Geno!
    Geno, Geno, Geno, Geno, Geno!

    Back in '68 in a sweaty club
    (Oh, Geno)
    Before Jimmy's Machine and The Rocksteady Rub
    (Oh, Geno)
    On a night when flowers didn't suit my shoes
    After a week of flunkin' and bunkin' school
    The lowest head in the crowd that night
    Just practicin' steps and keepin' outta the fights

    Academic inspiration, you gave me none
    But you were Michael the lover
    The fighter that won
    But now just look at me as I'm looking down at you
    No, I'm not bein' flash, It's what I'm built to do

    That man took the stage, his towel was swingin' high
    (Oh Geno)
    This man was my bombers, my Dexy's, my high
    (Oh, Geno)
    How the crowd, they all hailed you, and chanted your name
    But they never knew like we knew
    Me and you were the same
    And now you're all over, your song is so tame, brrr
    You fed me, you bred me, I'll remember your name

    Academic inspiration, you gave me none
    But you were Michael the lover
    The fighter that won
    But now just look at me as I'm looking down at you
    No, I'm not bein' flash, It's what I'm built to do

    Oh, Geno
    (Oh, Geno)
    Oh, Geno
