Down At The Reservoir

This song is by The Bluetones and appears on the album Return To The Last Chance Saloon (1998).

Well you gotta come down to the reservoir,
I don’t care who the hell you are,
If you’re a moving violation or a movie star,
You’re welcome round here now,
If you’re an untamed youth or an uncouth dame,
You’ve got little letters after but can’t spell your name,
I really don’t care to me you’re the same,
If you’re hanging round here now.
Then you can see how strangely quiet we all are,
At the reservoir.

You’ve gotta come down to the reservoir,
I don’t care who you say you are,
If you’re a washed-up bum or a gay bourgeois,
You’re welcome round here now,
’Cause at the water’s edge we can all lie down,
And someone can run and get drinks from the town,
But make them sweet for my friends,
These clowns who hang around me now.

You need your medicine to help the sugar down,
So you stick around.

You need your medicine to help the sugar down,
So stick around.

So good to see ya,
I know the name but not the face,
And if you’re looking for action, baby,
This ain’t the place, yeah,

So good to see ya,
You’ve done something different with your hair,
Leave your inhibitions at home,
And your flick-knife over there.

You gotta come down to the reservoir,
I don’t care who you say you are,
If you’re a moving violation or a movie star,
You’re welcome round here now,
’Cause at the water’s edge we can all lie down,
And someone can run and get drinks from the town,
But make them sweet for my friends,
These clowns who hang around me now,
Then you can see how strangely quiet we all are,
At the reservoir, the reservoir.
