The Newcastle Song

The Newcastle Song and the feel it portrays is just about as Australian as you could get, fair dinkum Aussie humour at it’s best …

“The Newcastle Song” was a 1975 hit for musician and comedian Bob Hudson. It poked fun at the working-class youth culture of the City of Newcastle in New South Wales, Australia. The song was recorded in front of a live audience in 1974. It became a number-one single in both Australia and New Zealand.

The story-line concerns a young man called Norm who goes out with his mates looking to pick up women in Newcastle’s main street, Hunter Street, in their “hot FJ Holden”. They encounter a young lady and her Hells Angel date outside the “Parthenon Milk Bar”. There is a verbal exchange between Norm and the Hells Angel before Norm slips away during a break in the traffic.

The Newcastle Song: Lyrics

Don’t you ever let a chance go by O Lord
Don’t you ever let a chance go by

‘Cause up in Newcastle
They have very strange mating habits
All the young women of Newcastle
Walk down the main street,
Which is called Hunter Street
(for reasons which will become obvious
later on in the song)
And all the young men of Newcastle
Drive down Hunter Street
In their hot FJ Holdens
With chrome-plated grease nipples
and double reverse twin cam door handles
Sitting eight abreast in the front seat
And they would lean out the window
And say real cool things to the sheilas on the footpath

Like uhhh…. ‘G’day’
And every now and then of course
One of the young ladies thinks to herself
uuum, uuuuuum

Don’t you ever let a chance go by O Lord
Don’t you ever let a chance go by
Don’t you ever let a chance go by O Lord
Don’t you ever let a chance go by

Anyway there was this mob of blokes
driving down Hunter Street
In the front seat of their hot FJ
With chrome-plated grease nipples
and twin overhead foxtails
And the cooolest of them all
Who got to sit near the window
Was young Normie

They pulled up outside the Parthenon milkbar
And standing outside the Parthenon
Was this beautiful looking sheila
‘Oooohh’….’Oooooohh’…. said young Normie
Who’d come top of his class in English
‘Ooooohh’… he said
So he leaned out the window and he said
real suave like he said…
‘Uh, G’day’

This nine foot tall Hells Angel
Came out of the Parthenon milkbar
He looked at Norm and said
‘Oh what are ya!’
Norm said ‘What are you?’
The bloke on the footpath said
‘Do you wanna go do ya mate, eh’
Norm said ‘yeah, do you wanna go, mate’
The bloke on the footpath said,
‘Yeah, I’ll have a go’
Norm said, ‘Do you know who ya pickin”
The bloke on the footpath said,
‘Nooo, who am I pickin”
Norm said, ‘You find out!’

And all of a sudden there was a break in the traffic
As any young Newcastle lad knows,
When you are getting monstered by a
nine foot tall Hells Angel
And there’s a break in the traffic….

Don’t you ever let a chance go by O Lord
Don’t you ever let a chance go by
Don’t you ever let a chance go by O Lord
Don’t you ever let a chance go by

Don’t you ever let a chance go by O Lord
Don’t you ever let a chance go by
Don’t you ever let a chance go by O Lord
Don’t you ever let a chance go by

Seems that a few former and aspiring politicians should’ve gone to Ikea. The seats are less expensive and in Bill’s case, he probably needs to have a sit down for a while, whilst Clive tried his best to buy the most expensive seat in Australia, yet it would appear he may have visions of getting that money back.
