"Still pinching myself to see if it's real.  A real honour to have been awarded first place in the Peninsula Folk Club's songwriting competition for my new song "Midweek Valentino".

"Thanks to everybody down there at Frankston.  What a great club you have. Folk music is in safe hands on the peninsula with you guys driving it along!"
Midweek Valentino Patrick Evans 2015

He's brought his dancing shoes tonight,
And he doesn't care who knows
He lets the music move him,
Down to his steel capped toes.

He's whirling, twirling, spinning round,
Like he is in a trance
Like he's the main attraction,
The hero of the dance

He's a midweek Valentino,
And he moves like Fred Astaire
But he'll go home alone tonight,
To a place where no one cares, nobody cares.

And the band looks at each other,
But no one even blinks
They've played a million bars like this,
Where the fee just buys your drinks,

But there's some kind of connection,
With the guy who's spinning round
Everybody's here for something,
Or someone they've never found


Bridge (x1)
Valentino shining like a star.
Seems like no one cares just who you are

And me, I've got no place to go,
Nobody waits for me
I'll have a drink for Valentino,
Coz, you know, he's just like me

Chorus (x2)
Bridge (x2)
