Steve: Do you have any lyrics--even a few lines or phrases? 'Alright for some' brings up LOTS of sites, and none immediately related to what you want.

The song title is

"It's Alright for Some"

The only bit I vaguely remember (apart from the tune) is

"It's alright for some,who look just like Steve Macqueen,
And look like they've never seen a sleepless night."

From this point on it gets hazy...

Subject: Lyr Add: IT'S ALL RIGHT FOR SOME (Peter Bond)
From: Mick Pearce (MCP)
Date: 10 Jan 10 - 05:54 PM

999 - it won't take that long; I just needed time to look it up in my song folders and type it up!

Recorded on the album It's All Right For Song Peter's notes say: "It's strange how college life can make you confuse your priorities. You'd spend hours trying to persuade a girl that you weren't just a thick engineering student, that you were really quite clever and sensitive until you'd end up under the table feeling not so clever and even less sensitive."

The words here are from one of the broadside's that Peter used to sell. (I haven't compared them with the recording). When I've got time I'll put the tune up.

Mick



IT'S ALL RIGHT FOR SOME
(Peter Bond)

Theres a song that says the lord above us
Will send someone to love us
A girl for ev'ry man.
Now this arrangement may well be
But there's one snag that I can see,
The girl he's sent for me
Doesn't know just where I am.

  Chorus:
  But it's all right for some
  Who look just like Steve McQueen
  And who look like they've never seen
  A sleepless night.
  What, then, do I do
  To be the kind of person who
  Would have the nerve to ask you
  To go out with him tonight?


Now, I'm a mine of useless information,
Though it's good for conversation,
And I can talk you into a trance.
But though I really would enjoy
To be some girl's ideal boy,
I just haven't got the courage
To ask a girl to dance.

Every night I drink what I am able,
And sink under the table
Still talking metaphysical junk.
But if I had to buy for two,
There'd be one for me and one for you,
And then I'd have a friend,
And I'd only get half as drunk.

I was a big fan of Peter's (a fellow Teessider for some time). Here's the tune from the broadside. (I've modified the orthography in a few places, but not the tune).

I was actually requested to sing this song a couple of months ago. People still remember it and it's great to see them joining in the chorus/refrain.

My old mate Charlie loves Peter Bond and taught me this song at Uni in Nottingham years ago. Still sing/play it to my wife to this day. Can't find any rendition on www sadly.
