UFO – On With The Action



UFO – On With The Action from the album “No Heavy Petting”

Lyrics:
Something going on at the corner of the block
It’s the kids down there
They were startin’ to rock
Hot black fever runnin every place
When the Greek kid pulled a knife and pushed it in his face
Some girl makes it with a lover in the dark
As the ambulance pulls away, she cries out more

(1) And it’s all night long, all night long
On with the action
Lead the fastest loves alive
On with the action
If you can’t run you can’t survive
On with the action
Mama’s boy and teacher’s pet
On with the action
It’s down our street, is it in yours yet

All the kids stand laughin’
They never had such fun
Then someone cuts a brown man who just can’t run
And the queen that’s been standin’ behind the toilet door
His parents don’t like boyfriends, call him a whore
But the minister’s starin’ with his bible in his hand
Was this Gods children, he didn’t understand

(1) Repeat
(1) Repeat UFO – On With The Action

  2. Amazing… Ahead of his time with the lyrics – addressing homosexuality in heavy rock in the mid seventies. Right on, Phil. I'm a fifty year old American man from/living here in Seattle (heterosexual). But I think it's cool for people to be allowed to be whom they want to be.

  3. Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present you Mr. Phillip John Mogg, the Poet!
