Album: The Impossible Dream (1974)

  • There once was a woman with wings
    Happy with the simple things
    She had silk suspenders and high, heeled, stocking thighs
    Helping me in my need
    She was a friend, indeed
    She was my baby until the day she died

    Ain't nothin' like a gang bang
    Ain't nothin' like a gang bang
    Ain't nothin' like a gang bang to blow away the blues.
    (repeat)

    She was a woman who was twice my size
    She looked into my eyes
    She said "Only you can blow my blues away"
    She said "I'll tell you what to do
    Bring all your friends with you
    And you can come up and see me any ol' time of day"

    Ain't nothin' like a gang bang
    Ain't nothin' like a gang bang
    Ain't nothin' like a gang bang to blow away the blues, ahhh
    (repeat)

    There were twenty-seven guys
    An unexpected surprise
    She just kept on rockin' 'til the night was gone
    She was smilin' through the tears
    For a hundred and fifty years
    Just lickin' her lips and helpin' me along

    Ain't nothin' like a gang bang
    Ain't nothin' like a gang bang
    Ain't nothin' like a gang bang to blow away the blues.

  • Alex Harvey from London The song isn't about rape ... but about a girl that loves sex with lots of guys ! !
    If the song was in reverse ... a guy that has sex with lots of women I'm sure he would be way cool ... yeah .
    So lets let both men & women who enjoy having sex with numerous partners ... enjoy themselves . ;-)
  • Babbling Babette from Tulsa OkLast summer I went to a huge flea market here in Tulsa & they were giving away a few bundles of old really worn vinyl LPs and this was in the bundle I got. I really was interested in only 3 LPs in the bundle by Chubby Checker, but the guy said I had to take them all--or none. Jerk! Anyway, I took them all home and played them. The LP "The Impossible Dream" was practically unplayed!! haaahaa Oh well, Alex Harvey Band's music was just mildly OK, but not to my tastes. This was recorded in the early Seventies, after all. The song Gang Bang was bizarre and just weird. Obviously, the band wasn't focused on commercial success! One wonders why the record company even risked financing them with crappy music like this.
  • Aiken Nutz from Tahlequah OkI never heard of this song until last year when in college my new dorm roommate played it on a record player (vinyl record). Pretty gross about a chick who likes gangbang sex with lotta dudes. I never liked the record. Never heard of Alex Harvey Band. Thank goodness!!
