The Who

Overture

Captain Walker didn't come home
His unborn child will never know him
Believe him missing with a number of men
Don't expect to see him again
 

Black Widow's Eyes

[Verse 1]
You jumped out of an alley
With surprise in your black widow's eyes
I was prepared to be unprepared
Been preparing for lights
 
[Chorus]
I fell right in love with you
Into a thousand parts I blew
I fell right in love with you
 
[Verse 2]
I was caught in a corner
He recoiled from a broken romance
Taking breath after once undead
I had a firm grip on my pants
 
[Chorus]
I fell right in love with you
Through a hundred hearts you flew
I fell right in love with you
 
[Verse 3]
Strange that when infatuation calls
We think that we've got real love in our life
It pumps like the pressure in a station hall
As the express train thunders on by
 
[Chorus]
I fell right in love with you
As the blood came blowing through
I fell right in love with you
 
[Chorus 2]
Across the room
I saw your eyes
Black window looking back at me
You held a gun
As children cried
You touched some wires
They shattered me
 
[Bridge]
I was blown into a blue
There'd been nothing I could do
I fell right in love with you
 
[Verse 4]
I rose up to the station
Smelt your scent by the door
You stood waiting so patient
Just one wait, then no more
 
[Chorus 1]
I fell right in love with you
There'd been nothing I could do
I fell right in love with you
 
[Chorus 2]
Across the room
I saw your eyes
Black window looking back at me
You held a gun
As children cried
You touched some wires
They shattered me
 

Happy Jack

Happy Jack wasn't old, but he was a man
He lived in the sand at the Isle of Man
 
The kids would all sing, he would take the wrong key
So they rode on his head in their furry donkey
 
The kids couldn't hurt Jack
They tried, tried, tried
They dropped things on his back
They lied, lied, lied, lied, lied
 
But they couldn't stop Jack, or the waters lapping
And they couldn't prevent Jack from being happy
 
They couldn't stop Jack, or the waters lapping
And they couldn't prevent Jack from feeling happy
 
The kids couldn't hurt Jack
They tried, tried, tried
They dropped things on his back
They lied, lied, lied, lied, lied
 
They couldn't stop Jack, or the waters lapping
And they couldn't prevent Jack from being happy
 
(I saw ya!)
 

Is It In My Head

I see a man without a problem
I see a country always starved
I hear the music of a heartbeat
I walk, and the people turn and laugh
 
Is it in my head
Is it in my head
Is it in my head here at the start?
Is it in my head
Is it in my head
Is it in my head, or in my heart?
 
I pick up phones and hear my history
I dream of all the calls I miss
I try to number those who love me
And find exactly what the trouble is
 
Is it in my head
Is it in my head
Is it in my head here at the start?
Is it in my head
Is it in my head
Is it in my head, or in my heart?
 
I feel I'm being followed
My head is empty
Yet every word I say turns out a sentence
Statements to a stranger
Just asking for directions
Turn from being help to being questions
 
I see a man without a problem
 

I'm One

Every year is the same
And I feel it again
I'm a loser, no chance to win
Leaves start fallin'
Come down is callin'
Loneliness starts sinking in
 
But I'm one
I am one
And I can see
That this is me
And I will be
You'll all see
I'm the one
 
Where do you get
Those blue, blue jeans
Faded, patched secret so tight?
Where do you get
That walk oh so lean?
Your shoes and your shirt's all just right
 
I'm one
I am one
And I can see
That this is me
And I will be
You'll all see
I'm the one
 
I got a Gibson
Without a case
But I can't get that even tanned look on my face
Ill fitting clothes
And I blend in the crowd
Fingers so clumsy
Voice too loud
 
But I'm one
I am one
And I can see
That this is me
And I will be
You'll all see
I'm the one
I'm the one
I'm the one
 

The Acid Queen

If your child ain't all he should be now
This girl will put him right.
I'll show him what he could be now
Just give me one night.
I'm the Gypsy - the acid Queen.
Pay before we start.
I'm the Gypsy - The acid queen.
I'll tear your soul apart.
 
Give us a room and close the door
Leave us for a while.
Your boy won't be a boy no more
Young, but not a child.
I'm the Gypsy - the acid queen.
Pay before we start.
I'm the Gypsy the acid queen.
I'll tear your soul apart.
 
Gather your wits and hold on fast,
Your mind must learn to roam.
Just as the Gypsy Queen must do
You're gonna hit the road.
 
My work is done now look at him
He's never been more alive.
His head it shakes his fingers clutch.
Watch his body writhe
I'm the Gypsy - the acid queen.
Pay before we start.
I'm the Gypsy - I'm guaranteed.
To break your little heart.
 

You better, you bet

You better you better you bet, ooh
You better you better you bet, ooh
You better you better you bet, ooh
You better you better you bet, ooh
 
I call you on the telephone my voice too rough with cigarettes
I sometimes feel I should just go home
But I'm dealing with a memory that never forgets
I love to hear you say my name especially when you say yes
I got your body right now on my mind and I drunk myself blind
To the sound of old T-Rex
To the sound of old T-Rex, who's next?
 
When I say I love you say you better
(You better you better you bet)
When I say I need you say you better
(You better you better you bet)
You better bet your life
Or love will cut you like a knife
 
I want those feeble minded axes overthrown
I'm not into your passport picture I just like your nose
You welcome me with open arms and open legs
I know only fools have needs but this one never begs
I don't really mind how much you love me
A little is really alright
When you say come over and spend the night
Tonight, tonight
 
When I say I love you say you better
(You better you better you bet)
When I say I need you say you better
(You better you better you bet)
You better bet your life
Or love will cut you like a knife
 
I lay on the bed with you
We could make some book of records
Your dog keeps licking my nose
And chewing up all those letters
Saying you better
You better bet your life
 
You better love me, all the time now
You better shove me back into line now
You better love me, all the time now
You better shove me back into line now
 
I showed up late one night with a neon light for a visa
But knowing I'm so eager to fight can't make letting me in any easier
I know that I've been wearing crazy clothes and I look pretty crappy
Sometime
But my body feels so good and I still sing a razor line everytime
And when it comes to all night living
I know what I'm giving
I've got it all down to a tee
And it's free
 
When I say I love you say you better
(You better you better you bet)
When I say I need you say you better
(You better you better you bet)
When I say I love you say you better
(You better you better you bet)
When I say I need you say you better
(You better you better you bet)
When I say I love you say you better
(You better you better you bet)
When I say I need you say you better
(You better you better you bet)
When I say I love you say you better
(You better you better you bet)
When I say I need you say you better
(You better you better you bet)
 
You better bet your life
Or love will cut you just like a knife
 

Pictures of Lily

I used to wake up in the morning
I used to feel so bad
I got so sick of having sleepless nights
I went and told my dad
He said 'son now here's some little something'
And stuck them on my wall
And now my nights seem quite so lonely
In fact I, I don't feel bad at all
I don't feel bad at all
 
Pictures of Lily
Made my life so wonderful
Pictures of Lily
Helped me sleep at night
Pictures of Lily
Solved my childhood problem
Pictures of Lily
Helped me feel alright
 
Pictures of Lily
Lily, Oh Lily
Lily, Oh Lily
Pictures of Lily
 
And then one day things weren't quite so fine
I fell in love with Lily
I asked my dad where Lily I could find
He said 'son now don't be silly
She's been dead since 1929'
Oh how I cried that night
If only I'd been born in Lily's time
It would have been alright
 
Pictures of Lily
Made my life so wonderful
Pictures of Lily
Helped me sleep at night
Pictures of Lily
But me and Lily are together in my dreams
And I ask ya, 'Hey mister have ya ever seen?'
Pictures of Lily!
 

We're Not Gonna Take It

[Tommy:]
Welcome to the camp
I guess you all know why we're here
My name is Tommy and I became aware this year
If you want to follow me
You've got to play pinball
And put in your earplugs
Put on your eyeshades
And you know where to put the cork
 
Hey, you gettin' drunk
So sorry, I've got you sussed
Hey you, smoking mother nature
This is a bust
Hey, hung up old mister normal
Don't try to gain my trust
'Cause you ain't gonna follow me
Any of those ways
Although you think you must
 
[Guests:]
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
Never did and never will
We're not gonna take it
Gonna break it
Gonna shake it
Let's forget it, better still
 
[Tommy:]
Now you can't hear me
Your ears are truly sealed
You can't speak either
Your mouth is filled
You can't see nothing
And pinball completes the scene
Here comes Uncle Ernie
To guide you to
Your very own machine
 
[Chorus:]
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
Never did and never will
Don't want no religion
And as far as we can tell
We ain't gonna take you
Never did and never will
We're not gonna take you
We forsake you
Gonna rape you
Let's forget you, better still
 
We forsake you
Gonna rape you
Let's forget you better still
 
[Tommy:]
See me, feel me, touch me, heal me
See me, feel me, touch me, heal me
See me, feel me, touch me, heal me
See me, feel me, touch me, heal me
 
Listening to you, I get the music
Gazing at you, I get the heat
Following you, I climb the mountain
I get excitement at your feet
Right behind you, I see the millions
On you, I see the glory
From you, I get opinions
From you, I get the story
 
Listening to you, I get the music
Gazing at you, I get the heat
Following you, I climb the mountain
I get excitement at your feet
Right behind you, I see the millions
On you, I see the glory
From you, I get opinions
From you, I get the story
 
Listening to you, I get the music
Gazing at you, I get the heat
Following you, I climb the mountain
I get excitement at your feet
Right behind you, I see the millions
On you, I see the glory
From you, I get opinions
From you, I get the story
 

The Kids Are Alright

I don't mind other guys dancing with my girl
That's fine, I know them all pretty well
But I know sometimes I must get out in the light
Better leave her behind with the kids, they're alright
The kids are alright
 
Sometimes, I feel I gotta get away
Bells chime, I know I gotta get away
And I know if I don't, I'll go out of my mind
Better leave her behind with the kids, they're alright
The kids are alright
 
I know if I go things would be a lot better for her
I had things planned, but her folks wouldn't let her
 
I don't mind other guys dancing with my girl
That's fine, I know them all pretty well
But I know sometimes I must get out in the light
Better leave her behind with the kids, they're alright
The kids are alright
 
Sometimes, I feel I gotta get away
Bells chime, I know I gotta get away
And I know if I don't, I'll go out of my mind
Better leave her behind with the kids, they're alright
The kids are alright
