Artist: Little River Band

Lady ~ Little River Band

Little River Band is an Australian rock band, formed in Melbourne in early 1975.

The group chose the name after passing a road sign leading to the Victorian township of Little River, near Geelong, on the way to a performance. Little River Band enjoyed sustained commercial success in not only Australia, but also in the United States.

The band’s original members were: lead vocals Glenn Shorrock; acoustic guitar & vocals Graeham Goble; rhythm guitar & vocals Beeb Birtles; lead guitar Ric Formosa; bass guitar Roger McLachlan; and drummer Derek Pellicci. The music and lyrics for most of the group’s compositions were contributed by Goble and Shorrock primarily – with contributions from Birtles and Briggs.

In May 2001 the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA), as part of its 75th Anniversary celebrations, named “Cool Change”, written by Shorrock, as one of the Top 30 Australian songs of all time. The ‘classic line-up’ of Birtles, Goble, Pellicci, Shorrock, guitarist David Briggs and bass guitarist George McArdle, were inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame at the 18th Annual ARIA Music Awards of 2004.

Look around you, look up here
Take time to make time
Make time to be there
Look around, be a part
Feel for the winter
But don’t have a cold heart

And I love you best
You’re not like the rest
You’re there when I need you
You’re there when I need
I’m gonna need you

A long time ago
I had a lady to love
She made me think of things
I never thought of
Now she’s gone and I’m on my own
A love song has come into my mind
A love song
It was there all the time

So lady
Let me take a look at you now
You’re there on the dance floor
Making me want you somehow
Oh lady
I think it’s only fair
I should say to you
Don’t be thinkin’ that I don’t want you
‘Cause maybe I do

[Instrumental Interlude]

Look around, come to me
I have no answers
But know where I wanna be
I look around, play a part
I was born in the winter
And cooled by a warm heart

And I love you best
You’re not like the rest
You’re there when I need you
You’re there when I need
I’m gonna need you

So lady
Let me take a look at you now
You’re there on the dance floor
Making me want you somehow
Oh lady
I think it’s only fair I should say to you
Don’t be thinkin’ that I don’t want you
‘Cause maybe I do
Don’t be thinkin’ that I don’t want you
Lady I do
