"Clock Strikes Ten" is a song released in 1977 by Cheap Trick on their second album, In Color. It was written by Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen. It was released as a single in Japan, where it was a major hit and reached #1 on their singles chart. Its success, as well as the success of two follow up singles, "I Want You to Want Me" and "Surrender", paved the way for Cheap Trick's famous concerts at Nippon Budokan in Tokyo in April 1978 that were recorded for the group's most popular album Cheap Trick at Budokan.

Song Lyrics

Clock strikes ten it`s a Saturday night

Got money in my pocket and it feels all right

Not goin` home gonna stay out late

Gotta hear some rockin` music it feels just great

Strikes twelve it's a Saturday night

All the creeps are sleepin` all the cools in sight

All the kings and queens they`re out tonight

Lookin for some action till it feels alright



(chorus)

Imagine what we`re doin`tonight

You really got me goin` tonight

Imagine what we`re doin` tonight

I`m crazy for some action tonight

Clock strikes two a Saturday night

All my money`s spent but that`s allright

Not goin` home gonna stay out late

Get ready for some action, want some action tonight

Clock strikes four I want some more

Everybody`s layin on the floor

Not goin` home gonna stay out late

Gotta hear that rockin` before it's too late

Imagine what we`re doin` tonight

You really got me goin` tonight

Imagine what we`re doin` tonight

I`m crazy for some action tonight

Gonna get down, gonna get on down

Gonna get down, gonna get on down

(drum solo)

Gonna get down (repeat 15x's)
