Hey St. Peter
Flash and the Pan Lyrics


The morning was cold and lonely
City lights old and gray
The sun arose, and, trying to smile
Gave it all away
The honky-tonk called a stranger
The stranger couldn't pay the bill
Made a stand, raised his hand
Sang a song, no time to kill

I said, hey (hey), hey, St. Peter
I've got a tale to tell
I've just been down in New York town
It really feels like hell
It really feels like hell

Billy was out of fashion
Manhattan was years ago
Yesterday he wasted time
Money was kind of slow
Billy had friends of glory
Billy was a friend of fame
Took a chance and raised his hand
Sang a song, now he's back in the game

I said, hey (hey), hey, St. Peter
I've got a tale to tell
I've just been down in New York town
It really feels like hell (hell)
It really feels like hel)

I said, hey (hey), hey (hey), hey, St. Peter
Hey (hey), hey (hey), hey, St. Peter
Hey (hey), hey (hey), hey, St. Peter
It really feels like hell (hell)
It really feels like hell

Hey, St. Peter
Before you ring your bell
Just been down in New York town
Done my time in hell
Done my time in hell

I said, hey (hey), hey (hey), hey, St. Peter
Hey (hey), hey (hey), hey, St. Peter
Hey (hey), hey (hey), hey, St. Peter
It really feels like hell (hell)
It really feels like hell (hell)
It really feels like
Hell

They were so ahead of their time I absolutely love this song
It's a huge part of the soundtrack to my life
Rest in peace George

Harry and George created such an amazing array of sound for this song and included versus spoken through a megaphone nearly 30 years before Gorillaz Feel Good Inc. I guess you could say it was decades ahead of it's time.

Kerrie Sciberras

AHEAD OF ITS TIME AND REMAINS TIMELESS, LOVE THIS SONG

Don Charters

THIS HAS TO BE ONE OF THE ALL TIME GREATEST SONGS!!!!!

Memphis Blue

Everytime I watch this clip, I have to smile. George Young and Harry Vanda was a fanatastic duo they were, they make my day x

This song is so underrated! I mean, it really feels like I'm listening to a classic song that everybody knows, but the reality is far from that. The video has been on YouTube for almost ten years, and it has only got 137 000 views? Haha

It's vanda & young, and EVERYBODY in Australia pretty much knew who they were - ex-Easybeats and the big brother of half of ac/dc rip George..
