Subject: Geno - Dexy's Midnight Runners

A colleague of mine is looking for the lyrics to "Geno" (or Gino) by Dexy's (or Dexies) Midnight Runners.
A Brit pop group from the 80's who also had a hit with "Come on Eileen".
He's drawn a blank on his search, but I thought 'Try Mudcat...'

Regards,

Can't help you with the lyrics, but the song was "Geno". (About soul artist Geno Washington)

I tried to write down the words from listening to the song, but I can't tell one thing they're saying, except "go Geno".

Geno Washington and the Ram-Jam Band used to play the college circuit in Britain in the late 60's /early 70's. They rocked.

found them... did a search for dexys+lyrics+geno

GENO

Back in 68 in a sweaty club
Before Jimmy's machine and the rocksteady rub
On a night when flowers didn't suit my shoes
After a week of flunkin and bunkin school
The lowest head in the crowd that night
Just practicing steps and keepin outa fights
Academic inspiration,you gave me none
Ah but you were Michael the lover
The fighter that won
And look at me now looking down at you
No I'm not being flash it's what I'm built to do
That man took the stage his towel swingin high
This man was my bombers my dexys my high
The crowd they all hailed youand chanted your name
Ah but they never knew like we knew
Me and you were the same
Now you're all over your song is so tame
You fed me you bred me
I'll remember your name

slainte
