Here I Go

  1. The Madcap Laughs (1970)

    This is a story 'bout a girl that I knew
    she didn't like my songs
    and that made me feel blue
    she said: "a big band is far better than you"...

    She don't rock 'n' roll, she don't like it
    she don't do the stroll, well she don't do it right
    well, ev'rythings wrong and my patience was gone
    when I woke one morning
    and remembered this song
    O-oh-oh, kinda catchy, I hoped
    that she would talk to me now
    and even allow me to hold her hand
    and forget that old band.

    I strolled around to her pad
    her light was off and that's bad
    her sister said that my girl was gone
    "But come inside, boy, and play, play, play me a song!"
    I said "Yeah! Here I go"
    She's kinda cute, don't you know?
    That after a while of seeing her smile
    I knew we could make it, make it in style!

    So now I've got all I need
    She and I are in love, we've agreed
    she likes this song and my others too
    so now you see my world is...
    because of this tune!
    What a boon this tune!
    I tell you soon
    We'll be lying in bed, happily wed,
    and I won't think of that girl
    or what she said...
