Power To All Our Friends was the United Kingdom entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1973 in Luxembourg performed by Cliff Richard. This was his second attempt at the contest, hoping to go one better than his second-place finish in London in 1968.

In the final, it was performed 15th following Ireland and preceding France. At the close of voting, it placed third with 123 points. It led at one point, but gradually faded towards the end.

Lyrics

Power to all our friends
To the music that never ends
To the people we want to be
Baby, power to you and me

There’s one old man
Spends his life growing flowers
And caring for the bees
Power to the bees

There’s one old lady
Spent her days making wine
The wine tasted fine
Power to the vine

Power to the boys who played rock ‘n’ roll
And made my life so sweet
And to the girls I knew before
And those I’ve yet to meet

Power to all our friends
To the music that never ends
To the people we want to be
Baby, power to you and me

There’s one strong man
Ploughing in the valley
He’s living off the land
Power to the land

There’s some young girl
Layin’ down in Monte Carlo
Layin’ in the sun
Power to the sun

Power to the boys who played rock ‘n’ roll
And made my life so sweet
And to the girls I knew before
And those I’ve yet to meet

Power to all our friends
To the music that never ends
To the people we want to be
Baby, power to you and me

Power to the boys who played rock ‘n’ roll
And made my life so sweet
And to the girls I knew before
And those I’ve yet to meet

Power to all our friends
To the music that never ends
To the people we want to be
Baby, power to you and me

To the music that never ends
Baby, power to all our friends

Trivia

  • It's been said that Cliff was so nervous, his manager had to give him a shot of Valium before his performance to calm him down.
  • Like his appearance in 1968, he locked himself in a bathroom stall after his performance until the show was over.
