Slade - Pouk Hill Lyrics




Did you see us
We were there, standing there, with our arms in the air
Did you see us
Did you see us
We were there, standing still, and the temperature was nil
Did you see us
Stood in a line
Dick took a shot and he got us
And he got us

Did you help us
Sympathize with us
Please help me
Pouk Hill is tall, always will be
Pouk Hill is older than you and me
Than you and me

You passed us by, not a second glance
Bluer than blue
We were froze' to the bone, couldn't wait to be home
In the firelight
We were warm there
As we sat by the fire, getting higher and higher
Really cruel there
Stood in a line
Dick took a shot and he got us
And he got us

Did you help us
Pretty size us
Please help me
Pouk Hill is tall, always will be
Pouk Hill is older than you and me
Than you and me

Slade Pouk Hill Comments
  1. John Smith

    Beautiful stereo production by Chas.

  2. J.Cheever Loophole

    Always puzzled me why Slade weren't regarded as one of the great rock bands....
    I suspect it was the terrible fad of the 70s & 80's of performing on kids tv, I remember being very sad seeing Slade perform to a studio full of 8 year olds for Crackerjack....
    Marc Bolan suffered the same way, but his death and subsequent martyrdom pushed his tv series from peoples memories

    Yes, I remember seeing Alice Cooper performing on some similar programme. I think the teeny-bopper label stuck to a lot of bands like Sweet, and they couldn't quite shake that. Also there were album bands and singles bands. It was looked on as 'serious music' if you disdained singles, bands like Led Zeppelin, Genesis, Yes were predominantly album bands, and bands like Slade, Sweet, Mott the Hoople were seen as pop, and only interested in charting with singles. I was 13 in 1973 and got my music from Top Of The Pops, then went out to buy the singles. Albums cost £5, far beyond my pocket, but I could always find 45p from my dinner money to buy a single.
    I reckon those people into 'real rock' album bands missed out on not listening to Slade. Noddy Holder has an interesting anecdote in his biography about playing Reading, and all the 'rock' fans being really cool toward Slade, until they started knocking out those old hits everyone can sing along to

    Yeah, evidently Pouk Hill was where they had a photo shoot for their first album cover. It was done in the freezing cold with snow all around. That's what the song is about. (According to Noddy in a radio interview he gave).

  4. Ray Lee

  5. pat gal

    Eddy Vanvijfeijken

    Simply the best, very versatile band of brilliant musicians !

    Rob Harding

    For sure !

  8. jazz strider

    Me too! - Mr. Holder used to give Mr. Plant Lifts in his Dad's Window Cleaning Van - Holder surely one of the greatest frontman/rock vocalists ever.

  9. Larry Byrd

    i am a 52 year old male from the usa and i have around 3000LPs in my collection ive listend to slade for 30 some years and would rank them amoung the best pure rock n roll bands to come along cant compare them to bands like floyd zepplin stones they are of a differnt musical plain more like un earthly if you know what i mean slade is just pure heart n soul rock n roll rock on boys

    @Rob Harding Slade and to a lesser extent The Sweet were awesome but its sad that the early 70s glam era in general seems to have been airbrushed from history. Slade made some truly classic songs. How does it feel is simply a masterpiece.

    Rob Harding

    @dlamiss have to agree with that sentiment 100 %. Well said diamiss.

    dlamiss

    @Rob Harding thanks mate. they were a CLASS band, ironically 5/6 years ago saw Slade 2 and The Sweet live and it was a brilliant night.. The Sweet were perfect, Slade would always be handicapped without Noddy

    Rob Harding

    @dlamiss Absolutely ! Nod does tend to stand out a bit, few can sound that good.

    Rob Harding

    You sure know a good band when you see one.Well done to you, many in the states didn't.
