Mott The Hoople All The Young Dudes Live Video 1973 1

March 31, 2020 1 comment

Billy rapped all night about his suicide
How he’d kick it in the head when he was twenty-five
Don’t wanna stay alive when you’re twenty-five

Wendy’s stealing clothes from unlocked cars
Freddy’s got spots from ripping off stars from his face
Funky little boat race
The television man is crazy
Saying we’re juvenile delinquent wrecks
Man, I need a TV when I’ve got T. Rex
Hey brother, you guessed, I’m a dude

All the young dudes
Carry the news
Boogaloo dudes
Carry the news

All the young dudes
Carry the news
Boogaloo dudes
Carry the news

Now Jimmy looking sweet though he dresses like a queen
He can kick like a mule
It’s a real mean team
We can love
We can love
And my brother’s back at home
With his Beatles and his Stones
We never got if off on that revolution stuff
What a drag
Too many snags
Well I drunk a lot of wine
And I’m feeling fine
Gonna race some cat to bed
Is this concrete all around
Or is it in my head
Oh brother, you guessed, I’m a dude

All the young dudes
Carry the news
Boogaloo dudes
Carry the news

All the young dudes
Carry the news
Boogaloo dudes
Carry the news

All the young dudes
Carry the news
Boogaloo dudes
Carry the news

All the young dudes
Carry the news
Boogaloo dudes
Carry the news

All the young dudes
Carry the news
Boogaloo dudes
Carry the news

All the young dudes
Carry the news
Boogaloo dudes
Carry the news

All the young dudes
Carry the news
Boogaloo dudes
Carry the news

All the young dudes
Carry the news
Boogaloo dudes
Carry the news

Eric Clapton – Layla (Live Aid 1985)

March 30, 2020 Leave a comment

What will you do when you get lonely
And nobody’s waitin’ by your side
You’ve been runnin’ and hidin’ much too long
You know it’s just your foolish pride

Layla, you got me on my knees
Layla, I’m beggin’ darlin’, please
Layla, darlin’, won’t you ease my worried mind
Tried to give you consolation

When your old man had let you down
Like a fool, I fell in love with you
you turned my whole world upside down
Layla, you got me on my knees

Layla, I’m beggin’ darlin’, please
Layla, darlin’, won’t you east my worried mind
