Well, we were just another band out of Boston On the road and tryin' to make ends meet Playin' all the bars, sleepin' in our cars And we practiced right on out in the street No, we didn't have much money We barely made enough to survive But when we got up on stage and got ready to play,
Back at the hotel Lord, we got such a mess It seems that one of the crew Had a go with one of the guests, oh yes Well, the police said we can't drink at
the bar, what a shame Won't you come upstairs girl And have a drink of champagne
Nine o'clock the next day And I'm ready to go I got six hundred miles to ride To do one more show, oh no Can I get you a taxi home It sure was grand When I come back here next year I want to see you again
What was your name, little girl? What's your name?
"I want to live in the world, not inside my head I want to live in the world, I want to stand and be counted With the hopeful and the willing With the open and the strong With the voices in the darkness Fashioning daylight out of song And the millions of lovers Alive in the world"
"Run my name though your computer Mention me in passing to your college tutor Check my records check my facts Check if I paid my income tax Pore over everything in my C.V. But you'll still know nothing 'bout me You'll still know nothing 'bout me"
