Skyhooks

Skyhooks were an Australian rock band formed in Melbourne in March 1973 by mainstays Greg Macainsh on bass guitar and backing vocals, and Imants "Freddie" Strauks on drums. They were soon joined by Bob "Bongo" Starkie on guitar and backing vocals, and Red Symons on guitar, vocals and keyboards; Graeme "Shirley" Strachan became lead vocalist in March 1974. Described as a glam rock band, because of flamboyant costumes and make-up, Skyhooks addressed teenage issues including buying drugs ("Carlton (Lygon Street Limbo)"), suburban sex ("Balwyn Calling"), the gay scene ("Toorak Cowboy") and loss of girlfriends ("Somewhere in Sydney") by namechecking Australian locales.

I'd like to be in love but love's not good enough
Good enough a reason to be in love these days
There's too much goin' on, there's too much that's goin' wrong
Goin' wrong to be in love these days

Well, the girls in front are on mandrax
They're all dancin' in three-quarter time
Waitin' for the next band to touch down
And buy them a whiskey and lime
The boys up the back they're all drinking beer
They don't know what to do with their hands
They'd like to grab the girl with the mink eyebrows
But they're too nervous to make any plans

They like to be in love but love's not good enough
Good enough a reason to be in love these days
Everyone's got high ideals they know exactly how it feels
To be the one to turn the wheels these days

An old sweetheart is cryin' in her vodka
Waitin' six months  for a smile
From a man who's too busy with his new-found fame
He's playin' it cool for a while
A new lover says come on over here
Another wants a date right now
For some double talk and cigarettes
Before the night turns sour

They'd like to be in love but love's just not enough
Not enough to be in love these days
There's too much goin' on, there's too much that's goin' wrong
Goin' wrong to be in love these days

You said that you wanted me
Whenever you were free
You handed me your front door key
While I analyzed your strategy
Offered me some lemon tea
Questioned my fidelity
Bit my ear and felt my knee
While I gave you the third degree

'Cos love's not good enough, love's not good enough
Love's not good enough
Love's not good enough good enough good enough

We all want different things
But we all want to live like kings
We all want the best there is these days
Yeah it's just too tough
Yeah it gets so rough
'Cos love's not good enough these days
