Sledgehammer was the first single from the multi-platinum selling album So, the first of Peter’s studio albums to have a proper title and a watershed release in his career.

You could have a steam train If you'd just lay down your tracks You could have an aeroplane flying If you bring your blue sky back All you do is call me I'll be anything you need
You could have a big dipper Going up and down, all around the bends You could have a bumper car, bumping This amusement never ends
I want to be - your sledgehammer Why don't you call my name Oh let me be your sledgehammer This will be my testimony
Show me round your fruitcage 'Cos I will be your honey bee Open up your fruitcage Where the fruit is as sweet as can be
I want to be - your sledgehammer Why don't you call my name You'd better call the sledgehammer Put your mind at rest I'm going to be - the sledgehammer This can be my testimony I'm your sledgehammer Let there be no doubt about it
Sledge Sledge Sledgehammer

Oh won't you show for me and I will show for you Show for me, I will show for you Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I do mean you, only you You've been coming through Going to build that power Build, build up that power, hey I've been feeding the rhythm I've been feeding the rhythm Going to feel that power build in you
Come on, come on, help me do Come on, come on, help me do Yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh , yeh, yeh, you I've been feeding the rhythm I've been feeding the rhythm It's what we're doing, doing All day and night
