Classic Rock Lyrics

Recommended Posts

Oh girl, electric witch, you are limp, in societies ditch

you are visually fine, oh yes you are, mentally dying

Oh boy, just like a boat, you are sunk, but somehow you float

you are mentally weak, oh yes you are, but so much you speak

Oh God, high in your fields above earth, come and be real for us

you with your mind, oh yes you are, beautifully fine

 

•••• Hmmmm, I would have thought one of the guys from across the pond would have known the artist on this one ••••

Poor little darling with a chip out of her heart
It's like acting in a movie when you got the wrong part
Getting your kicks in another girl's bed
And it was only last Tuesday they found you in the subway dead
 
And who could you call your friends down in Soho?
One or two middle-aged dykes in a Go-Go
And what do you expect from a sixteen year old yo-yo
And hey, hey, hey, oh don't you know?

All the young girls love Alice, tender young Alice they say.   Elton

Speakina great drum solos...

"Gotta find me a way To take me back to yesterday How can I ever hope to forget you

Won't you show me a place Where I can hid my lonely face I know you'll only break my heart if I let you..."

Next line is title.  Astounding drum solo by a human freight train on the live stuff.

Tell me rct "Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad?"

"The man in the street
Draggin' his feet
Don't wanna hear the bad news
Imagine your face
There is his place
Standing inside his brown shoes
You do his nine to five
Drag yourself home half alive
And there on the screen
A man with a dream"

Met a man on the roadside crying, without a friend, there's no denying,
You're incomplete, they'll be no finding looking for what you knew.

So anytime somebody needs you, don't let them down, although it grieves you,
Some day you'll need someone like they do, looking for what you knew.

Mmm, I'm telling you now, The greatest thing you ever can do now,
Is trade a smile with someone who's blue now, It's very easy just...

Davey Johnstone is the definition of "Underrated"!

Was he ever under Elton? His bangs in the 70's were so . . . not manly.

Good to see he's keeping up the 70's tradition of wearing a Kimono.

These guys did it with style and a look that only Canadians can pull off.  I think Alex is smuggling a bullfrog in his pants.

I just listened to We're Only In It the other day driving to work. Its one of my early favorites.  Notice Frank is flashing the ''V"  "Peace Sign" backward. Isn't that the same thing in England as in the USA as our middle finger?

ahh..

Yes he had his own thing with words. I used to like 'King Of The Rumbling Spire' when I was still at school.

The Family tune was 'Wheels' from 'A Song For Me'

He was a good poet, I attended one of his concerts in Nuremberg in1970, it was an exceptional show..

Ladies hold the aces
And their lovers call it passion
The men call it pleasure
But to me it's old fashioned
Times they're a changin'
Nothin' ever stands still
If I don't stop changin'
I'll be writin' out my will

Still one of the first things I play when I pick up one of my guitars.  It was our second set opener back then, still a favorite.

Wasn't John Wetton the bassist in Family for a hot minute?

At least it ain't all primped and teased and it doesn't look like he just left his hairdresser's like Davey's.

Yes.  I discovered recently he was also in Uriah Heep for a short time.
