22nd June, 1973
Polydor - 2058-377

German Picture Cover of "Skweeze Me, Pleeze Me".
Skweeze Me Pleeze Me was released on June 22nd, 1973. It was eagerly awaited for by a rampant army of fans heady with Slade fever. The tour was steadily working it's way across the nation, getting ever closer to it's Earls Court destination and Slade were everywhere.

The record reached Number 1 in the UK Singles Charts, giving the band their fifth number one, and it remained in the charts for ten weeks.


Jimmy Lea originally got the idea for the chorus of "Skweeze Me, Pleeze Me" at the band's regular The Trumpet in Bilston, after listening to local pianist Reg Kierle was performing there. The song had the working title of "You Know How to Squeeze Me". 

Inspired by Reg Keirle



"Just stick 'em" 
The fan club sent out the, now regulation, stickers with the bi-monthly newsletter.



Kill 'em At The Hot Club Tonite came out of nowhere, a bolt from the blue. A "nod" to Stephane Grappelli, the track was actually considered for the A-Side of the single!

Skweeze Me, Pleeze Me
(Noddy Holder & Jimmy Lea)

You know how to skweeze me Woh Oh
You know how to pleeze me Woh Oh
You're learnin' it easy Woh Oh
And I thought you might like to know
When a girl's meaning yes, she says no
You got rude talk you got wild walk
All your jokes are blue
You've got long nails you tell tall tales
Some you think are true

And there's nowhere to go you won't go
If there's nowhere to run you go slow
If you move up to me then I'll show you the way
Then you'll know how to skweeze me Woh Oh
You know how to pleeze me Woh Oh
You're learnin' it easy Woh Oh
And I thought you'd might like to know
How to skweeze me Woh Oh
You know how to pleeze me Woh Oh
You're learnin' it easy Woh Oh
And I thought you might like to know
When a girl's meaning yes, she says no

You got a sweet tongue you sing love songs
Can't you learn to spell
Take me back 'ome you got it all wrong
'Cos we sing that as well

And there's nowhere to go you won't go
If there's nowhere to run you go slow
If you move up to me then I'll show you the way
Then you'll know how to skweeze me Woh Oh
You know how to pleeze me Woh Oh
You're learnin' it easy Woh Oh
And I thought you'd might like to know
How to skweeze me Woh Oh
You know how to pleeze me Woh Oh
You're learnin' it easy Woh Oh
And I thought you might like to know
When a girl's meaning yes, she says no

You know how to skweeze me Woh Oh
You know how to pleeze me Woh Oh
You're learnin' it easy Woh Oh
And I thought you might like to know
How to skweeze me Woh Oh
You know how to pleeze me Woh Oh
You're learnin' it easy Woh Oh
And I thought you might like to know
When a girl's meaning yes, she says no

You know how to skweeze me Woh Oh
You know how to pleeze me Woh Oh
You're learnin' it easy Woh Oh, yeah
And I thought you might like to know, know

Kill 'em At The Hot Club Tonite
(Noddy Holder & Jimmy Lea)

You'll get over me, I'll get over you
The only time to meet is when we really fancy
We talk quite a lot, we sleep on and off
The last thing I remember was the tv dancing
You walk on the right, I walk on the left
The only thing to say will be a hello maybe
We had lots of fun, we wrote in the sand
You keep on throwing things at me and I believe baby

You can smile like you did before
Keep your souveniers upon your bedroom wall
Everyone gets silly, hot blood can't get chilly
We'll kill 'em at the hot club tonite

You'll get over me, I'll get over you
The only time we'll meet is when we really fancy
A ride in my car, pick up my guitar
You think that saying sorry is the only answer
You walk on the right, I walk on the left
You look the other way in case I see you blushing
We fell down the stairs, went head over heels
The state that we were in how come you had me rushin'

You can smile like you did before
Keep your souveniers upon your bedroom wall
Everyone gets silly, hot blood can't get chilly
We'll kill 'em at the hot club tonite

You can smile like you did before
Keep your souveniers upon your bedroom wall
Everyone gets silly, hot blood can't get chilly
We'll kill 'em at the hot club tonite
We'll kill 'em at the hot club tonite
We'll kill 'em at the hot club tonite
