Big Spender - Live At The Hammersmith Odeon, London / 1975 Lyrics
We're gonna do some rock 'n' roll
The minute you walked in the joint
I could see you were a man of
A real big spender
Good looking, so refined
So wouldn't you like to know
What's going on in my mind
So let me get right to the point
I don't pop my cork for everyone I see
Hey Big Spender
Spend a little time with me
