The mini cab The driver is black This time of night You better sit in the back
Got a few smokes Under your hat The cops are lookin' out For the petrol on the black
This time I think So what the hell There's that female I know too well
Why should I lean Get out my mind again I ridin' in the back alone The stranger rides again
To see my lovely town That always brings you down Where every drifter drifts For many miles around
We take a casual drive For two miles up the road The cops pull us over And search right through our clothes
They give him hell They check him on the air I sit there with the drugs in my hair
As soon as I get home I call Heathrow Want a standby fare to Borneo

The first version of The Beatles "Helter Skelter" was a 27 minute jam, so you can imagine what Ringo was going through pounding away all that time. To convince the guys that he needed a break, he screamed, "I've got blisters on my fingers!" This was included on the fadeout.
"Thinking About You" was the ninth track from Calvin Harris' 18 Months album to enter the UK singles Top 10. No other artist has obtained so many hits from one LP - Michael Jackson was the previous record holder with seven Top 10 tunes from both his Bad and Dangerous sets.
