The Who

A Legal Matter – The Who

I told you why I changed my mind
I got bored by playing with time
I know you thought you had me nailed
But I’ve freed my head from your garden rails

Now it’s a legal matter, baby
You got me on the run
It’s a legal matter, baby
A legal matter from now on

My mind’s lost in a household fog
Wedding gowns and catalogs
Kitchen furnishings and houses
Maternity clothes and baby’s trousers

Now it’s a legal matter, baby
Marryin’s no fun
It’s a legal matter, baby
A legal matter from now on

I told you why I changed my mind
I got bored by playing with time
I know you thought you had me nailed
Well, I’ve freed my head from your garden rails

Now it’s a legal matter, baby
You got me on the run
It’s a legal matter, baby
A legal matter from now on

You ain’t the first and you ain’t the last
I gain and lose my women fast
I never want to make them cry
I just get bored, don’t ask me why

Just wanna keep doing all the dirty little things I do
And not work all day in an office just to bring my money back to you
Sorry, baby

905 – The Who

Mother was an incubator
Father was the contents
of a test tube in the ice box
In the factory of birth

My name is 905,
And I’ve just become alive
I’m the newest populator
Of the planet we call Earth

In suspended animation
My childhood passed me by
If I speak without emotion
Then you know the reason why

Knowledge of the universe
Was fed into my mind
As my adolescent body
Left its puberty behind

And everything I know is what I need to know
And everything I do’s been done before
Every sentence in my head
Someone else has said
At each end of my life is an open door

Automatically defrosted
When manhood came on time
I became a man
I left the “ice school” behind

Now I’m to begin
The life that I’m assigned
A life that’s been used before
A thousand times

I have a feeling deep inside
That somethin’ is missing
It’s a feeling in my soul
And I can’t help wishing

That one day I’ll discover
That we’re living a lie
And I’ll tell the whole world
The reason why

Well, until then, everything I know is what I need to know
And everything I do’s been done before
Every sentence in my head
Someone else has said
At each end of my life is an open door

5:15 – The Who

Why should I care, why should I care?



Girls of fifteen

Sexually knowing

The ushers are sniffing

Eau-de-cologning

The seats are seductive

Celibate sitting

Pretty girls digging

Prettier women.



Magically bored

On a quiet street corner

Free frustration

In our minds and our toes

Quiet stormwater

M-m-my generation



Uppers and downers

Either way blood flows.



Inside outside. Leave me alone.

Inside outside. Nowhere is home.

Inside outside, Where have I been?

Out of my brain on the five fifteen.



On a raft in the quarry

Slowly sinking.

On the back of a lorry

Holy hitching.

Dreadfully sorry

Apple scrumping.

Born in the war

Birthday punching.



He man drag

In the glittering ballroom

Gravely outrageous

In my high heel shoes

Tightly undone

They know what they’re showing

Sadly ecstatic

That their heroes are news.



Why should I care?

La La La Lies – The Who

If I’m so lost without a friend
Tell me, who’s this by my side?
This girl with eyes like gems
And cool reactions to your lies
Lies
La la la la la la lies

You can’t repeat what you put ’round
All the things that made me cry
You kicked me when I was down
And they hurt me all those lies
Lies
La la la la la la lies

I’ve got my girl and together we’re strong
To laugh at you and prove you wrong

I don’t insist that you feel bad
I just want to see you smile
Don’t ever think you made me mad
I didn’t listen to your lies
Lies
La la la la la la lies

If I’m so lost without a friend
Tell me, who’s this by my side?
This girl with eyes like gems
And cool reactions to your lies
Lies
La la la la la la lies

I don’t insist that you feel bad
I just want to see you smile
Don’t ever think you made me mad
I didn’t listen to your lies
Lies
La la la la la la lies

Had Enough – The Who

I’ve had enough of bein’ nice
I’ve had enough of right and wrong
I’ve had enough of tryin’ to love my brother

I’ve had enough of bein’ good
And doin’ everything like i’m told I should
If you need a lover, you’d better find another

Life is for the living
Takers never giving

Suspicion takes the place of trust
My love is turning into lust
If you get on the wrong side of me you better run for cover

I’ve had enough of bein’ trodden on
My passive days are gonna be long gone
If you slap one cheek, well, I ain’t gonna turn the other

Life is for the living
Takers never giving

Fooling no one but ourselves
Good is dying

Here comes the end
Here comes the end of the world

I’m gettin’ sick of this universe
Ain’t gonna get better; it’s gonna get worse
And the world’s gonna sink with the weight of the human race

Hate and fear in every face
I’m gettin’ ready and I’ve packed my case
If you find somewhere better, can you save my place?

Fooling no one but ourselves
Love is dying

Here comes the end
Here comes the end
Here comes the end of the world

The Who – Daddy Rolling Stone

Girl you think you’ve had loving,

Girl you think you’ve had fun,

Girl you ain’t a seen nothin’ ’til I come along.



I’m a daddy, I’m a daddy, I’m a daddy,

Yeah I’m a daddy daddy I’m daddy rolling stone.



I got a friend named Cody,

He’s got a girl named Chris,

I’m gonna steal that girl though he’s twice my size,

‘Cause I know how to do it like this.



I’m a daddy, I’m a daddy, I’m a daddy,

Yeah I’m a daddy daddy I’m daddy rolling stone,

I’m daddy rolling stone, I’m daddy rolling stone,

Daddy rolling stone, call me daddy rolling stone.



I said I got a friend named Cody,

He’s got a girl named Chris,

I’m gonna steal that girl though he’s twice my size,

‘Cause I know how to do it like this.



I’m a daddy, I’m a daddy, I’m a daddy, daddy,

I’m daddy rolling stone, I’m daddy rolling stone,

Just call me daddy rolling stone dear,

Long hair long nose, daddy rolling stone

Cache Cache – The Who

Did you ever sleep in a bear pit

With apple cores and mice along

Did you ever lay on ice and grit

Or search for a place where the wind was gone



Did you ever tramp up endless hills

Past cosy homes with secret beds

Did you ever dream of a suicide pill

And wake up cold to the smell of bread



Well I have slept there badly twice

And shared my straw with scratchin mice

Although you’ll find some deep brown hair

I’ll tell you something for nothing

There ain’t no bears in there (cache cache)

Not a single bear in there (cache cache)



Did you ever have to make a draw

For a hard wooden bench or a bed of stone

Did you ever jemmy a stable door

Or scare the horse to escape the snow



Did you ever invade a neat little yard

Wake up the children who hope for ghosts

Did you ever cause their dogs to bark

Their guests to curse their noisy hosts



Don’t jump in expectin fun

Don’t swagger in there with your elephant gun

Don’t enter the cage with wavin chairs

Cos I’ll tell you something for nothing

There ain’t no bears in there (cache cache)

Not a single bear in there (cache cache)



Did you ever pass the police at work

And hope that they might take you in

Did you ever wonder why music hurts

When someone plays it aloof to sin

Did you ever believe that a smile could cure

A happy face keep you warm at night?

Were you ever fooled by laughters lure

Only to find that they laughed in spite?



Chorus: (as above)



Did you ever finally find a place

A soft warm bed in a room of flowers

And when you finally laid down your face

You found you slept for a hundred hours

A hundred hours.



There ain’t no bears in there (cache cache)

Baba O’ Riley – The Who

Out here in the fields
I fight for my meals
I get my back into my living
I don’t need to fight
To prove I’m right
I don’t need to be forgiven

Don’t cry
Don’t raise your eye
It’s only teenage wasteland

Sally ,take my hand
Travel south crossland
Put out the fire
Don’t look past my shoulder
The exodus is here
The happy ones are near
Let’s get together
Before we get much older

Teenage wasteland
It’s only teenage wasteland
Teenage wasteland
Oh, oh
Teenage wasteland
They’re all wasted!
