(M & J Schaub)

We’re gonna ride in Jimmy’s van
Up and down across this land
We’re gonna follow him wherever he may take us
We have a hundred things to pack
And crazy Michael in the back
Is telling tales about how famous he will make us

Off we go
Down the cobbled road
Six big smiles
Across the emerald isle
And sleep is not an issue
We’re here to plug our band
We’re gonna ride in Jimmy’s van

We’re gonna ride in Jimmy’s van
We’re gonna do the best we can
And play our songs each night , who cares if they will pay us
I’m sleeping in a dirty bed
And I’m a hundred miles from cred
Still I’m as happy as I think I’ll ever be

Off we go
Down the cobbled road
Six big smiles
Across the emerald isle
And money’s not an issue
We’re here to plug our band
We’re gonna ride in Jimmy’s van

I will remember everything
How David bought his Celtic ring
And someone asked us for our autographs in Galway
And how we watched the seagulls fly
That magic day on Arran isles
When Michael swam and we drank vodka on the beach

Off we go
Down the cobbled road
Six big smiles
Across the emerald isle

And all that I can think of
All that comes to mind
Is that I hope we’ll never be too old
Too fed up or too tired
Too famous or too greedy
Too rich to give a dam
Too stuck up and pretentious
Too settled and well planned
To take a ride, take a ride
Let’s take a ride in Jimmy’s van
