01Too Old To Rock 'n' Roll, Too Young To Die! - JETHRO TULL (LP Too Old... 1976)
Watch the video

Lyrics:

The old Rocker wore his hair too long,
Wore his trouser cuffs too tight.
Unfashionable to the end --- drank his ale too light.
Death's head belt buckle --- yesterday's dreams ---
The transport caf' prophet of doom.
Ringing no change in his double-sewn seams
In his post-war-babe gloom.

Now he's too old to Rock'n'Roll but he's too young to die.

He once owned a Harley Davidson and a Triumph Bonneville.
Counted his friends in burned-out spark plugs
And prays that he always will.
But he's the last of the blue blood greaser boys
All of his mates are doing time:
Married with three kids up by the ring road
Sold their souls straight down the line.
And some of them own little sports cars
And meet at the tennis club do's.
For drinks on a Sunday --- work on Monday.
They've thrown away their blue suede shoes.

Now they're too old to Rock'n'Roll and they're too young to die.

So the old Rocker gets out his bike
To make a ton before he takes his leave.
Up on the A1 by Scotch Corner
Just like it used to be.
And as he flies --- tears in his eyes ---
His wind-whipped words echo the final take
And he hits the trunk road doing around 120
With no room left to brake.

And he was too old to Rock'n'Roll but he was too young to die.
No, you're never too old to Rock'n'Roll if you're too young to die.

Lyrics:

We are young
Heartache to heartache we stand
No promises, no demands
Love is a battlefield

(Woah)
We are strong, no one can tell us we're wrong
Searchin' our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

You're beggin' me to go then makin' me stay
Why do you hurt me so bad
It would help me to know
Do I stand in your way, or am I the best thing you've had
Believe me, believe me, I can't tell you why
But I'm trapped by your love and I'm chained to your side

We are young
Heartache to heartache we stand
No promises, no demands
Love is a battlefield

We are strong, no one can tell us we're wrong
Searchin' our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

We're losing control
Will you turn me away or touch me deep inside
And when all this gets old, will it still feel the same
There's no way this will die
But if we get much closer, I could lose control
And if your heart surrenders, you'll need me to hold

We are young
Heartache to heartache we stand
No promises, no demands
Love is a battlefield

We are strong, no one can tell us we're wrong
Searchin' our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

Chart position: US # 9
Watch the video

Lyrics:

Another night in any town
You can hear the thunder of their cry
Ahead of their time
They wonder why

Shadows of a golden age
A generation waits for dawn
Brave carry on
Bold and the strong

Only the young can say
They're free to fly away
Sharing the same desire
Burnin' like wildfire

They're seein' through the promises
And all the lies they dare to tell
Is it heaven or hell?
They know very well

Only the young can say
They're free to fly away
Sharing the same desire
Burnin' like wildfire

Only the young can say
They're free to fly away
Sharing the same desire
Burnin' like wildfire

Only the young can say
Only the young can say
Only the young can say
Only the young can say
Young can say


04Seventeen - ADRIAN GURVITZ (LP Il Assassino1980)
Watch relevant video

Lyrics:

Seventeen, with a dream
I live in the love we made together every night,
oh, such a magical feeling.

Wow, near him, what life would bring
to me, which shouldn't wrap about our freedom
you couldn't see through your fears,
and I had to let that dreams grow old, and they grew...

And it burned down your heart,
And it tear up your soul
and you reach in the night for someone you don't know,
And it burned down your heart,
And it tear up your soul,
I, I was seventeen, so long ago
I was seventeen.

Oh, when I dance, on a Saturday night, dance ,
Saturday night and almost every night,
dance, on a Saturday night, oh when I dance, Saturday nights

Twenty one, life began,
I got in line, and started waiting for my freedom
I lived 'round the corners of this world,

It didn't thrill me, quite disappointed,
I thought I'd reaped until I left
and get back started but this burning flow in all those years
she found the love and i found how it feels

Now, it burns down your heart,
And it tears up your soul
but you reach in the night, for someone you don't know
Now, it burns down your heart,
And it tears up your soul
I, I was seventeen, so long ago,
I was seventeen

Oh, when I dance, on a Saturday night, dance ,
Saturday night, and almost every night
dance, on a Saturday night, oh when I dance, Saturday nights.

Now I 'm dancing with shadows, and routine
since she left me
broken buzzer, all I ever find is people who have problems
drinking devils

Every night, without you girl,
just don't seem right
you took the only love from my heart, you took the only love from my heart.

Seventeen, with a dream
I live in the love we made together every night. (x3)

Dance, Saturday night, dance, Saturday night and almost every night. (x3)

Watch the video

Lyrics:

Billy left his home with a dollar in his pocket and a head full of dreams.
He said somehow, some way, it's gotta get better than this.
Patti packed her bags, left a note for her momma, she was just seventeen,
There were tears in her eyes when she kissed her little sister goodbye.

They held each other tight as they drove on through the night they were so excited.
We got just one shot of life, let's take it while we're still not afraid.
Because life is so brief and time is a thief when you're undecided.
And like a fistful of sand, it can slip right through your hands.

Young hearts be free tonight. Time is on your side,
Don't let them put you down, don't let 'em push you around,
Don't let 'em ever change your point of view.

Paradise was closed so they headed for the coast in a blissful manner.
They took a two room apartment that was jumping ev'ry night of the week.
Happiness was found in each other's arms as expected, yeah
Billy pierced his ears, drove a pickup like a lunatic, ooh!

Young hearts be free tonight.Time is on your side,
Don't let them put you down, don't let 'em push you around,
Don't let 'em ever change your point of view.

Young hearts be free tonight.
Time is on your side.

Billy wrote a letter back home to Patti's parents tryin' to explain.
He said we're both real sorry that it had to turn out this way.
But there ain't no point in talking when there's nobody list'ning so we just ran away
Patti gave birth to a ten pound baby boy, yeah!

Young hearts be free tonight, time is on your side.
Young hearts be free tonight, time is on your side.
Young hearts be free tonight, time in on your side.

Young hearts gotta run free, be free, live free
Time is on, time is on your side
Time, time, time, time is on your side
Is on your side
Is on your side
Is on your side
Young heart be free tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, yeah

Watch the video

Lyrics:

What's the sense in sharing, this one and only life
Ending up, just another lost and lonely wife
You count up the years, and they will be filled with tears
Love only breaks up, to start over again
You'll get the babies, but you won't have your man
While he is busy loving, every woman that he can ("aahh haa")
Say I want to leave a thousand times a day
It's easier said that done
When I just can't break away ("just can't break away")

Young hearts, run free
Never be hung up, hung up like my man and me ("umm, my man and me")
Young hearts, to yourself be true
Don't be no fool
When loving is all, there is ("say that don't love you")

It's high time just one crack at life
Who wants to live in, trouble and strife
My mind must be free, to learn all I can about me

I'm gonna love me, for the rest of my days
Caress the babies every time they say
Self reservation is what's, really going on today ("aahh, hooo")

Say I want to leave a thousand times a day
How can I turn loose
When I just can't break away ("just can't break away")

Friday night and the lights are low
Looking out for a place to go
Where they play the right music
Getting in the swing
You come to look for a king
Anybody could be that guy
Night is young and the music's high
With a bit of rock music
Everything is fine
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance

You are the dancing queen
Young and sweet
Only seventeen
Dancing queen
Feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance
You can jive
Having the time of your life
See that girl
Watch that scene
Dig in the dancing queen

You're a teaser, you turn 'em on
Leave 'em burning and then you're gone
Looking out for another
Anyone will do
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance

You are the dancing queen
Young and sweet
Only seventeen
Dancing queen
Feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance
You can jive
Having the time of your life
See that girl
Watch that scene
Dig in the dancing queen, digging the dancing queen

Lyrics:

Long ago,
High on a mountain in Mexico
Lived a young shepherd boy, Angelo
Who met a young girl and he loved her so

Rich was she,
Came from a very high family,
Angelo knew it could never be,
They ran away to their destiny

Running away together
Running away forever
Angelo
Running away from danger
Hiding from every stranger
Angelo
They knew it wasn't wrong
They found a love so strong
They took their lives at night
And in the morning light
They found them on the sand
They saw them lying there, hand-in-hand

Long ago,
High on a mountain in Mexico
Lived a young shepherd boy, Angelo
Who met a young girl and he loved her so

Running away together,
Running away forever,
Angelo
Running away from danger,
Hiding from every stranger,
Angelo
They knew it wasn't wrong
They found a love so strong
They took their lives at night
And in the morning light
They found them on the sand
They saw them lying there, hand-in-hand

Running away together,
Running away forever,
Angelo
Running away from danger,
Hiding from every stranger,
Angelo
They knew it wasn't wrong
They found a love so strong
They took their lives at night
And in the morning light
They found them on the sand
They saw them lying there, hand-in-hand

Running away together,
Running away forever,
Angelo
Hiding from every stranger,
Angelo
They knew it wasn't wrong
They found a love so strong
They took their lives at night
And in the morning light
They found them on the sand
They saw them lying there, hand-in-hand…

Lyrics:

Consequences altered cases
Broken noses altered faces
My ego altered altered egos
Wherever i go so does me go
Walk through the fields where the flowers are growing
Carve out your names on the first tree you see
There are 22 catches when you strike your matches
And get down on your knees

In the tunnel of love - the tunnel of love
You fall in feet first - in the tunnel of love
You think of yourselves as really good friends
But you know how it always ends
In the tunnel of love

So you get engaged have a party
Only 17 when the wedding bells changer
A room with a view and a kid on the way
Hope you make it to the church on time
Cause the wedding list is getting longer
The bottom drawer is getting fuller
And you're not getting any younger
Can things get any better

In the tunnel of love - the tunnel of love
You fall in feet first - in the tunnel of love
And think of yourselves as really good friends
But you know how it always ends
In the tunnel of love, the tunnel of love

So consequences altered cases
You tried honeymoons in far away places
But the trial separation worked and
Ended up in a divorce case

You gave up your friends for a new way of life
And both ended up as ex husband and wife
There were 22 catches when you struck your matches
And threw away your life in the tunnel of love
The tunnel of love you fell i feet first
In the tunnel of love and thought of yourselves as really good friends
But you know how it had to end in the tunnel of love
The tunnel of love, the tunnel of love
The tunnel of love, the tunnel of love
The tunnel of love, in the tunnel of love

Lyrics:

Young at heart
Young at heart

Young at heart
Yet what a start
Old before their time
They married young
For love at last
Was their only crime

How come I love them now ?
How come I love them more ?
Young at heart
You're so young at heart

Young at heart
Yet not a chance
To be a child at all
They told us tales
They told us lies
Don't they know
The shouldn't have told us at all

How come I love them now ?
How come I love them more ?
When all I wanted to do when I was old
Was to walk out the door

Young at heart
You're so young at heart
Young at heart
You're so young at heart

How come I love them now ?
How come I love them more ?
How come I love them now ?
How come I love them more ?
How come I love them now ?
How come I love them more ?
When all I wanted to do when I was old
Was to walk out the door

Young at heart
You're so young at heart
Young at heart
You're so young at heart
Young at heart
You're so young at heart

Lyrics:

Just seventeen, everything that you've seen
It's all there in her eyes
So many years of her poor mama's tears
And her daddy's sweet lies
There's nobody home
Mary-Anne's alone
Almost fully grown and worldly wise

Jimmy's been down, he's been out and around
And he knows where it's at
Love to be good if he thought that he could
But it isn't like that
He don't make mistakes
What he needs he takes
Jimmy gets all the breaks 'cause he knows how

Jimmy loves Mary-Anne
Jimmy wants to be her man
Jimmy loves Mary-Anne, she thinks it's alright

She's not alone and she picks up the phone
And she hears Jimmy say
Mother I'm beat, I'm so sick of the street
Feel like running away
There's no life here at all
The city seems so small
There's sweeter music calling us away
Let it play

Jimmy loves Mary-Anne
Jimmy wants to be her man
Jimmy loves Mary-Anne, she thinks it's alright

This big dollar town it can drag you right down
If you go it alone
Even the strong don't survive very long
When they're out on their own
Jimmy knows it's true
Mary-Anne knows it too
They can see each other through if they hold on

Jimmy loves Mary-Anne
Jimmy wants to be her man
Jimmy loves Mary-Anne, she thinks it's alright

Jimmy loves Mary-Anne
Jimmy wants to be her man
Jimmy loves Mary-Anne, she thinks it's alright

Jimmy loves Mary-Anne

Lyrics:

Yay though we venture through
The valley of the stars
You and all your jewelry
And my bleeding heart

Who couldn't be together
And who could not be apart

We should've jumped out
Of that airplane after all
Flying sky ways overhead
It wasn't hard to fall
And I had so many crashes
That I couldn't feel at all

And it feels like
I'm seventeen again
Feels like I'm seventeen

Times might break you
God forsake you
Leave you burned and bruised
Innocence will teach you
What it feels like to be used
Thought that you'd done everything
You didn't have a clue

And it feels like
I'm seventeen again
Feels like I'm seventeen

Looking from the outside in
Some things never change
Hey hey I'm a million miles away
Funny how it seems like yesterday

All those fake celebrities
And all those viscous queens
All the stupid papers
And the stupid magazines
Sweet dreams are made of anything
That gets you in the scene

And it feels like
I'm seventeen again
Feels like I'm seventeen

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody's looking for something
Yeah

Little ditty about Jack and Diane
Two American kids growin' up in the heartland
Jacky's gonna be a football star
Diane debutante backseat of Jacky's car

Suckin' on a chili dog outside the Tastee Freeze
Diane's sittin' on Jacky's lap
He's got his hand between her knees
Jacky say "Hey Diane lets run off
Behind a shady tree"
Dribble off those Bobby Brooks slacks
Let me do what I please.
And Jacky say

Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone
Oh yeah say life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone, they walk on

Jacky sits back reflects his thoughts for the moment
Scratches his head and does his best James Dean.
Well you know Diane, we oughtta run of the city
Diane says "Baby, you ain't missing' no-thing"
Jacky say a

Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone
Oh yeah say life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone,

Gonna let it rock
Let it roll
Let the Bible belt come down
And save my soul
Hold on to sixteen as long as you can
Changes come around real soon
Make us women and men

Oh yeah life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone
Oh yeah say life goes on
Long after the thrill of livin' is gone,

Little ditty about Jack and Diane
Two American kids doing the best they can

Lyrics:

Mama told me when I was young
"Come sit beside me, my only son
And listen closely to what I say
And if you do this it'll help you some sunny day"

"Oh, take your time, don't live too fast
Troubles will come and they will pass
You'll find a woman and you'll find love
And don't forget, son, there is someone up above"

"And be a simple kind of man
Oh, be something you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Oh, won't you do this for me, son, if you can"

"Forget your lust for the rich man's gold
All that you need is in your soul
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want for you, my son, is to be satisfied"

"And be a simple kind of man
Oh, be something you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Oh, won't you do this for me, son, if you can"

Oh yes, I will

"Boy, don't you worry, you'll find yourself
Follow your heart and nothing else
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want for you, my son, is to be satisfied"

"And be a simple kind of man
Oh, be something you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Oh, won't you do this for me, son, if you can"

Baby, be a simple, really simple man
Oh, be something you love and understand

Lyrics:

She's just sixteen years old
Leave her alone, they say
Separated by fools
Who don't know what love is yet
But I want you to know

If I could fly
I'd pick you up
I'd take you into the night
And show you a love
Like you've never seen - ever seen.

It's like having a dream
Where nobody has a heart
It's like having it all
And watching it fall apart
And I would wait till the end of time for you
And do it again, it's true
I can't measure my love
There's nothing to compare it to
But I want you to know

Chart position: US # 1
Watch a relevant video with the lyrics

Lyrics:

My child arrived just the other day
He came to the world in the usual way
But there were planes to catch, and bills to pay
He learned to walk while I was away
And he was talking 'fore I knew it, and as he grew
He'd say, "I'm gonna be like you, dad
You know I'm gonna be like you"

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man in the moon
"When you coming home, dad?" "I don't know when
But we'll get together then
You know we'll have a good time then"

My son turned ten just the other day
He said, "Thanks for the ball, dad, come on let's play
Can you teach me to throw?" I said, "Not today,
I got a lot to do." He said, "That's ok"
And he walked away, but his smile never dimmed
Said, "I'm gonna be like him, yeah
You know I'm gonna be like him"

Well, he came from college just the other day
So much like a man I just had to say
"Son, I'm proud of you. Can you sit for a while?"
He shook his head, and he said with a smile
"What I'd really like, dad, is to borrow the car keys
See you later. Can I have them please?"

I've long since retired and my son's moved away
I called him up just the other day
I said, "I'd like to see you if you don't mind"
He said, "I'd love to, dad, if I could find the time
You see, my new job's a hassle, and the kid's got the flu
But it's sure nice talking to you, dad
It's been sure nice talking to you"
And as I hung up the phone, it occurred to me
He'd grown up just like me
My boy was just like me

Lyrics:

When we are young age has no meaning
I never gave it a second thought
Until one day along came this old man
And this is what he said to me
And this is what he said to me

I know what it is to be young
But you,you don't know what it is to be old
Someday, you'll be saying the same thing
Time takes away so the story is told

I've asked so many questions
To the wise men i've met
Couldn't find all the answers
No one has as yet.
There'll be days to remember
Full of laughter and tears
After summer, comes winter and so go the years
So my friend..
Lets make music together
I'll play the old while you sing me the new
In time when your young days are over
There'll be some one sharing their time with you

I know what it is to be young
But you,you don't know what it is to be old

So my friend..
Lets make music together
I'll play the old while you sing me the new
In time when your young days are over
There'll be some one sharing their time with you

There'll be some one sharing their time with you

Lyrics:

When you're young and so in love as we
And bewildered by the world we see
Why do people hurt us so
Only those in love would know
What a town without pity can do

If we stop to gaze upon a star
People talk about how bad we are
Ours is not an easy age
We're like tigers in a cage
What a town without pity can do

The young have problems, many problems
We need an understanding heart
Why don't they help us, try and help us
Before this clay and granite planet falls apart

Take these eager lips and hold me fast
I'm afraid this kind of joy can't last
How can we keep love alive
How can anything survive
When these little minds tear you in two
What a town without pity can do

How can we keep love alive
How can anything survive
When these little minds tear you in two
What a town without pity can do

No, it isn't very pretty what a town without pity

Lyrics:

Those schoolgirl days of telling tales and biting nails are gone
But in my mind I know they will still live on and on
But how do you thank someone who has taken you from crayons to perfume?
It isn't easy, but I'll try

If you wanted the sky I would write across the sky in letters
That would soar a thousand feet high 'To Sir, With Love'

The time has come for closing books and long last looks must end
And as I leave I know that I am leaving my best friend
A friend who taught me right from wrong and weak from strong
That's a lot to learn, but what can I give you in return?

If you wanted the moon I would try to make a star
But I would rather you let me give my heart 'To Sir, With Love'

Lyrics:

(la la la la la la la....)
Spring in the air (filled with love),
there's magic everywhere,
when you're young and in love.

Life seems to be (just a dream),
a world of fantasy,
when you're young and in love.

Each night seems just like the 4th of july,
with stars that spangle the sky.

The moon at night (shines so bright),
seems to shine twice as bright,
when you're young and in love.

Dreams can come true (cry a dream),
if you believe they do,
when you're young and in love.

chorus:
So many teardrops about to fall.
True love can conquer all,
when you're,
when you're young and in love.

Trust and you'll find (ooo),
there's no mountain you can't climb,
when you're young and in love.

chorus:
So many teardrops about to fall.
True love can conquer all.

Spring in the air (ooo),
there's magic everywhere,
(when you're young and in love).

Dreams can come true (cry a dream),
if you believe they do,
when you're young and in love.

chorus:
So many teardrops about to fall.
True love can conquer all,
when you're,
when you're young and in love,
young and in love,
(young and in love),
young and in love,
(young and in love),
young and in love,
(young and in love),
yound and in love,

Lyrics:

It started with a kiss, in the back row of the classroom
How could I resist the aroma of your perfume
You and I were inseparable, it was love at first sight
You made me promise to marry you, I made you promise to be my bride
But you were only eight years old and I had just about turned nine
I thought that life was always good, I thought you always would be mine

It started with a kiss, I never thought it would come to this
It started with a kiss, I never thought it would come to this

I remember every little thing, like fighting in the playground
Some good looking boys had started to hang around
That boy hurt me so bad but I was happy 'cause you cried
Still I couldn't help but notice that new distant look in your eyes
Then when you were sixteen I had just turned seventeen
I couldn't hold on to my love, I couldn't hold on to my dream

It started with a kiss, I never thought it would come to this
It started with a kiss, I never thought it would come to this

You don't remember me do you?
You don't remember me do you?

Walking down the streets again, the star of my love story
And my heart began to beat so fast, so clear was my memory
I heard my voice call out your name as you looked then looked away
I felt so hurt, I felt so small, it was all that I could say

You don't remember me do you?
You don't remember me do you?

It started with a kiss, I never thought it would come to this
It started with a kiss, I never thought it would come to this

Lyrics:

Advice for the young at heart
Soon we will be older
When we gonna make it work?
Too many people living in a secret world
While they play mothers and fathers
We play little boys and girls
When we gonna make it work?
I could be happy
I could be quite naive
It's only me and my shadows
Happy in our make believe
Soon...
And with the hounds at bay
I'll call your bluff
Cause it would be okay
To walk on tiptoes everyday
And when I think of you and all the love that's due
I'll make a promise, I'll make a stand
Cause to these big brown eyes, this comes as no surprise
We've got the whole wide world in our hands
Advice for the young at heart
Soon we will be older
When we gonna make it work?
Love is promise
Love is a souvenir
Once given
Never forgotten, never let it disappear
This could be our last chance
When we gonna make it work?
Working hour is over
And how it makes me weep
Cause someone sent my soul to sleep
And when I think of you and all the love that's due
I'll make a promise, I'll make a stand
Cause to these big brown eyes, this comes as no surprise
We've got the whole wide world in our hands
Advice for the young at heart
Soon we will be older
When we gonna make it work?
Working hour is over
We can do anything that we want
Anything that we feel like doing
Advice...

Lyrics:

You leave in the morning
With everything you own in a little black case
Alone on the platform
The wind and the rain

On a sad and lonely face
Mother will never understand
Why you had to leave
For the love that you need

Will never be found at home
Pushed around and kicked around
Always a lonely boy
You were the one

That they'd talk about around town
As they put you down
And as hard as they would try
They'd hurt to make you cry

But you'd never cry to them
Just to your soul
No you'd never cry to them
Just to your soul


24At Seventeen - JANIS IAN (LP Between The Lines1975)
Chart position: NZ # 37
Watch a very special live version of the song

Lyrics:

I learned the truth at seventeen
That love was meant for beauty queens
And high school girls with clear skinned smiles
Who married young and then retired
The valentines I never knew
The Friday night charades of youth
Were spent on one more beautiful
At seventeen I learned the truth

And those of us with ravaged faces
Lacking in the social graces
Desperately remained at home
Inventing lovers on the phone
Who called to say - come dance with me
And murmured vague obscenities
It isn't all it seems at seventeen

A brown eyed girl in hand me downs
Whose name I never could pronounce
Said - pity please the ones who serve
They only get what they deserve
The rich relationed hometown queen
Marries into what she needs
With a guarantee of company
And haven for the elderly

So remember those who win the game
Lose the love they sought to gain
In debentures of quality and dubious integrity
Their small-town eyes will gape at you
In dull surprise when payment due
Exceeds accounts received at seventeen

To those of us who knew the pain
Of valentines that never came
And those whose names were never called
When choosing sides for basketball
It was long ago and far away
The world was younger than today
When dreams were all they gave for free
To ugly duckling girls like me

We all play the game, and when we dare
We cheat ourselves at solitaire
Inventing lovers on the phone
Repenting other lives unknown
That call and say - come on, dance with me
And murmur vague obscenities
At ugly girls like me, at seventeen

Watch a video with the lyrics

Lyrics:

Wednesday morning at five o'clock
As the day begins
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more

She goes downstairs to the kitchen
Clutching her handkerchief
Quietly turning the backdoor key
Stepping outside, she is free

She(we gave her most of our lives)
Is leaving (sacrificed most of our lives)
Home (we gave her everything money could buy)
She's leaving home, after living alone, for so many years (bye bye)

Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown
Picks up the letter that's lying there
Standing alone at the top of the stairs
She breaks down and cries to her husband
"Daddy, our baby's gone.
"Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly?
How could she do this to me?"

She (we never thought of ourselves)
Is leaving (never a thought for ourselves)
Home (we struggled hard all our lives to get by)
She's leaving home, after living alone, for so many years

Friday morning, at nine o'clock
She is far away
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
Meeting a man from the Motortrade

She (what did we do that was wrong)
Is Having (we didn't know it was wrong)
Fun (fun is the one thing that money can't buy)

Something inside, that was always denied, for so many years
She's leaving home, bye, bye.

Lyrics:

She was just sixteen
And all alone when I came to be
So we grew up together
My mama-child and me
Now things were bad and she was scared
But whenever I would cry
She'd calm my fear and dry my tears
With a rock and roll lullaby

And she'd sing
Sha-na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na
It'll be all right
Sha-na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na
Just hold on tight
Sing it to me, mama
My, my, my, my, mama
Sing it sweet and clear
Oh mama, let me hear
That old rock and roll lullaby

[Instrumental Interlude]

We made it through the lonely days
But, Lord, the nights were long
And we'd dream of better mornin's
When mama sang a song
Now I can't recall the words at all
It don't make sense to try
'Cause I just knew lotsa love came through
In that rock and roll lullaby

And she'd sing
Sha-na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na
It'll be all right
Sha-na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na
Just hold on tight
I can hear ya, mama
My, my, my, my mama
Nothin' moves my soul
Like the sound of the good old
Rock and roll lullaby

Lyrics:

My eyes adored you though I never laid a hand on you.
My eyes adored you like a million miles away from me,
You couldn't see how I adored you.
So close, so close and yet so far.
Carried your books from school
Playin' make believe you're married to me,
You were fifth-grade, I was sixth when we came to be.
Walkin' home ev'ry day over Bonnicut Bridge and Bay
Till we grew into the me and you who went our separate ways.

My eyes adored you though I never laid a hand on you.
My eyes adored you like a million miles away from me,
You couldn't see how I adored you.
So close, so close and yet so far.
Headed for city lights, climbed the ladder up to fortune and fame,
I worked my fingers to the bone made myself a name.
Funny I seemed to find that no matter how the years unwind;
Still I reminisce 'bout the girl I miss and the love I left behind.

My eyes adored you though I never laid a hand on you.
My eyes adored you like a million miles away from me,
You couldn't see how I adored you.
So close, so close and yet so far.

All my life I will remember how warm and tender we were way back then,
(My eyes adored you though I never laid a hand on you.)
Whoa baby,
(My eyes adored you like a million miles away from me,
You couldn't see how I adored you.)
Oh the feeling, sad regrets I know I won't ever forget you,
My childhood friend.
(So close, so close and yet so far.)

My eyes adored you though I never laid a hand on you.
My eyes adored you like a million miles away from me,
You couldn't see how I adored you.
So close, so close and yet so far.
My eyes adored you though I never laid a hand on you.
My eyes adored you like a million miles away from me,
You couldn't see how I adored you.
So close, so close and yet so far.

Lyrics:

It was a hot afternoon,
Last day of June,
And the sun was a demon,
The clouds were afraid,

One-ten in the shade,
And the pavement was steaming.
I told Billy-Ray,
In his red Chevrolet,

I needed time for some thinking,
I was just walking by,
When I looked in her eye,
And I swore it was winking.

She was 31 and I was 17,
I knew nothing about love, she knew everything,
When I saw down beside her on the front porch swing,
And wondered what the coming night would bring.

The sun closed her eyes,
As it climbed in the sky,
And it started to swelter,
The sweat trickled down the front of her gown,
And I thought it would melt her.

She through back her hair,
Like I wasn't there,
And she sipped on a julep,
Her shoulders were bare,
And I tried not to stare,
When I looked at her two lips.

And when she looked at me,
I heard her softly say,
I know you're young,
You don't know what to do or say,
But stay with me until the sun has gone away,
And I will chase the boy in you away.

And then she smiled and we talked for a while,
And we walked for a mile to the sea,
We sat on the sand, and the boy took her hand,
But I saw the sun rise as a man.

Ten years have gone by,
Since I looked in her eye,
But the memory lingers,
I got back in my mind,
To the very first time,
And feel the touch of her fingers,

It was a hot afternoon,
Last day of June,
And the sun was a demon,
The clouds were afraid,
One-ten in the shade,
And the pavement was steaming...

Lyrics:

Let's dance in style, let's dance for a while,
Heaven can wait we're only watching the skies.
Hoping for the best, but expecting the worst,
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?

Let us die young or let us live forever
We don't have the power, but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The music's for the sad man.

Can you imagine when this race is won?
Turn our golden the faces into the sun,
Praising our leaders, we're getting in tune
The music's played by the, the madman.

Forever young,
I want to be forever young.
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever, and ever

Forever young,
I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever young.

Some are like water, some are like the heat
Some are a melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later they all will be gone
Why don't they stay young?

It's so hard to get old without a cause
I don't want to perish like a fading horse
Youth's like diamonds in the sun,
And diamonds are forever

So many adventures given up today,
So many songs we forgot to play.
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
Oh let it come true.

Forever young,
I want to be forever young.
Do you really want to live forever,
Forever, and ever?

Forever young,
I want to be forever young.
Do you really want to live forever,
Forever, and ever?

Forever young
I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever,
Forever young
