Saturdays in Silesia
by Rational Youth

Living in a graveyard
Waiting for the axe to fall
Working in a big hole
Just to pay the rent man
When my work is over
Call you on the telephone
Paint your pretty face
Put on your cardboard dance shoes

Saturdays in Silesia
Holidays are for heroes
City lights - not quite Broadway
Saturdays in Silesia

Bought a quart of vodka
Didn't even stand in line
That's the only thing
That we are never short of
Got the number 8 bus
Took it to the navy docks
Girl of my dreams
Lives right around the corner

Gonna take you where the music is loud
Where the rhythm never stops
Find the magic if there's any to be found

Saturdays in Silesia
Holidays are for heroes
City lights - not quite Broadway
Saturdays in Silesia

And if the soldiers put a padlock on the door
We'll break it open like we've always done before
We don't have much but what we've got we're gonna keep
Won't you stay close to me?

Gonna take you where the music is loud
Where the rhythm never stops
Find the magic if there's any to be found

Saturdays in Silesia
Holidays are for heroes
City lights - not quite Broadway
Saturdays in Silesia

I heard this first in the "Swinth" music demo for the C64 in 1984 and loved it to the point that I made up lyrics for it so I could sing along. I only learned right now where the song is from... 29 years later.

search for this ...,some are still using the c64 synth abilitys "C64 Alien (1984) 👽 LIVE - SID Main Theme [LukHash]"

same here,i even still listen to rob huboard,jeroen tel ,galway,and many other c64 composers, look up daley thompson decatlon loader (Yellow Magic Orchestra - Rydeen) ,ocean loaders 1 thru to 4 ,you can download a program called Open MPT its a mod player that plays midi,mod files,tracker files ,they are easy to find,if you understand midi you can even remix them..

Same here! Our version was "Songs & hires", the melodies of the first 2 songs are planted in my memory forever. Every note of it!

From Silesia, (industrial region in south Poland) to the nearest navy docks there is about 500km so this was one hell of a bus ride.

Thanks for the information!  I always wondered...

HISTERIA COMPULSIVA

Living in a graveyard
Waiting for the axe to fall
Working in a big hole
Just to pay the rent man
When my work is over
Call you on the telephone
Paint your pretty face
Put on your cardboard dance shoes
Saturdays in Silesia
Holidays are for heroes
City lights - not quite Broadway
Saturdays in Silesia
Bought a quart of vodka
Didn't even stand in line
That's the only thing
That we are never short of
Got the number 8 bus
Took it to the navy docks
Girl of my dreams
Lives right around the corner
Gonna take you where the music is loud
Where the rhythm never stops
Find the magic if there's any to be found
Saturdays in Silesia
Holidays are for heroes
City lights - not quite Broadway
Saturdays in Silesia
And if the soldiers put a padlock on the door
We'll break…
