another composition by Pete Bellote and Giorgio Moroder
although it would
turn out to be the last composition by the pair to
appear on a Chicory Tip record.
This was another 2 and a half minute piece of pop music
from the boys complete
with trademark moog synthesizer break, hand claps and
tremendous glam rock appeal.
released on 26th October 1973 and there were high hopes
that this would do
well enough to put the band back in the charts again.
But with previous release "Cigarettes Women And Wine"
failing to get any airplay on
BBC Radio 1 due to its ban, when this single came out,
the interest in the band as far
as Radio 1 were concerned, had disappeared. Lack of
airplay damaged its chart
chances and both the band and the label would change
direction for the next single.
TO THE SONG
Wipe that smile off your face, that won't save you today
No use shouting for help cos my boys are blocking your
Because we're IOU, IOU, play must you
I said I-O-U
footsie was old, you knew she's be alone
But now her father is old, cos he would smile if he saw
give me that jive, you sure knew she was mine
But we'll soon put this thing straight with a good old
bunch of fives
for you, I said IOU, just for you
