The Lyrics

We're comin' to play, Cavern
Gig in Germany's through
Girls queue in advance
Like our drummer makes 'em do

They're freakin' right out
By the grease in his hair
We're startin' to totter
Comin' down from the pills

Pete Best and Band
That's the way we are seen
To all our loyal female fans

The quiet one makes out
A bit of all right
He stays in the back
But he's way outta sight

Pete Best and Band
Not the way that we planned

On the verge of stardom
On to universal fame
Studio time for vinyl play
And soon to make our name

One member we are to soon replace
So no one will gain all attention alone

Need a guy who's homely
A guy who don't stand out at all
Someone who makes us all look big
By looking rather small

We found a bloke who fits the bill
Whom Ringo we will call

Pete Best is banned
No where, no when
He is out today

Now he's back where he started
A guy in a band
Still playin' the Cavern
While we are on our way

So Pete Best is banned
Pete Best is banned
The first Beatle is dead

Don't see elderly Genesis parodies everyday. Bonus points on this one.

Thanks! That was the last album I ever bought by them. They hadn't become a pop group yet but with Steve Hackett gone it was only a matter of time.
