René and The Alligators werd opgericht in 1959 door een van de beste gitaristen van Nederland: René Nodelijk. De band was een voorbeeld voor veel bekende Haagse beatgroepen.

In 1978 maakte de groep een succesvolle comeback in de vorm van de band Renée met daarin Renés vrouw Anja Exterkate als leadzangeres. Renées eerste hitfeit was Sweet Nothings, gevolgd door A Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On in 1979. Na Tipparadeplaten Jimmy, Come Closer en Sad Man in 1980 en 1981 zat er weer een hit in de pen met High Time He Went. Het was de grootste hit van de band en bereikte in 1982 een 8e positie in de Top 40. Tot slot kwam in 1983 Sometimes You Cry nog in de Tipparade.

Songtekst

He gets up early
And takes a shower
Looks at his watch 'cause
It takes him an hour

To reach the office
Where work is waiting
Every day's like the one before

High time he went
High time he went
No time for dreams, it's
High time he went

Looks in the mirror
He's getting older
Studying his grey hairs
Life will soon be over

And At nearly 40
To start a new life
Wouldn't that be worth a try

High time he went
High time he went
No time for dreams, it's
High time he went

His mind is denying the fire
It's That's burning within, softly yearning
His mind is denying the fire
It's That's burning within, softly yearning

Picks up his car keys
He's Leaves in a hurry
Watching the whipers wipers
Wash away his worries

Follows his instinct
Leads into him to nowhere
Maybe tomorrow he'll find the way

High time he went
High time he went
No time for dreams, it's
High time he went

His mind is denying the fire
It's That's burning within, softly yearning
His mind is denying the fire
It's That's burning within, softly yearning

High time, no time
High time, high
High time, no time
Hight time
