Verse One
There's a big wharfy pub by the banks of the bay,
Out in the west side of Adelaide.
In an old smoky room where the bands used to play,
I remember the sweat and the noise we made.

And we jumped on the tables and crashed through the doors,
As you walked through the bar your feet stuck to the floor,
And the boys loved the music but the girls wanted more.

Verse Two
Then Tulie and Suzie would spin 'cross the floor,
They worked hard they played hard with nothing to prove.
But they held our attention when they would cut loose,
She's a big girl in all the right places nude.

And I played in the band and was part of the gang,
And they all stomped their feet every time that we sang.
And they broke all the windows when the closing bell rang.

Chorus
Another night in the Largs Pier Hotel,
Who cares if our future ain't bright.
With a girl on your arm, the world was a Saturday night.

Verse Three
I remember big Dylan, he was vicious but fair,
When he walked in the bar he would fill up the door.
If you're looking for troubles, you'd soon find it there,
Sometimes you'd get more than you've asked for.

And some nights the fighting burst out in the street,
When a fool and is friends would get knocked off their feet,
And we wouldn't back down 'till the last one was beat.

Chorus
Another night in the Largs Pier Hotel,
Who cares if our future ain't bright.
With a girl on your arm, the world was a Saturday night.

Bridge
And we laughed and drank till we fell,
Then we'd get up and do it again.
Lost in the City of Churches, the City of Pain.

Verse Four
When I come back to town and I'd drive through the bay,
Re-living the days I remember so well.
Well there's just a facade where the band used to play,
They tore it all down to build one more motel.

And the building might crumble but the memories last,
Think of the Wild times that ended too fast.
And the old friends I lost who once covered my ass.

Chorus
Another night in the Largs Pier Hotel,
Who cares if our future ain't bright.
With a girl on your arm, the world was a Saturday night.
This song is from the album "Rage & Ruin" and "30:30 Hindsight [Deluxe Version]".
