"Stone Cold Sober" is a cover song and sixth single by Andy Taylor, released from the album Dangerous by A&M Records in September 1990.

About the song Edit

Written by Rod Stewart and Steve Cooper, the song was originally released on Stewart's Atlantic Crossing album in 1975.

This was the first single taken from Andy Taylor's 1990 covers album Dangerous, which was accompanied by a black & white video. The follow up single was "Lola" on 20 October 1990.

The 12" vinyl edition features a silver triple gatefold numbered picture sleeve and a large guitar image as the centerfold.

The B-side is a cover version of David Bowie's 1976 single "Suffragette City".

Lyrics Edit

Never get to bed before sunup,

alway get caught in the rain;

sometimes I might get in trouble,

never was one to complain.

Now gentleman, you must agree

ain't it worth it when you're out on cloud thirty-three 

to be  stone cold sober again,

down in the alley again,

stone cold sober again.



Never found a dime in a gutter,

always get my best friends drunk.

If the pres'dent tries to call me,

say " Rodney, come on over for lunch";

I'd say, " Gentlemen, exuse me please

but I'm busy with my buddies up on cloud thirty-three."

Yeah, stone cold sober again,

down in the alley again,

stone cold sober again.



Sunday is a drag, so forget it,

Monday you can make up for that;

Tuesday, take a taste for dinner,

if you're all right spend it in bed.

But on Thursday prepare for your weekend

and let Friday disappear into Saturday mornin'

when you're stone cold sober again,

down in the alley again,

stone cold sober again.

stone cold sober again,

down in the alley again,

stone cold sober again.



I don't mind stone cold sober again,

down in the alley again,

stone cold sober again.
