    1959年2月3日に夭逝した天才、バディ・ホリーの作品。名曲だらけでベスト盤のような本作品ですが、オリジナル・アルバムです。このレコのオリジナル「コーラル盤」はそれだけでレアですが、これはそのプロモ盤で、本当に珍しいと思います。

    ビートルズがバディ・ホリーのバンド「クリケッツ」にちなんで命名されたこと、ビートルズのメンバーがバディ・ホリーの大ファンだったのはあまりにも有名です(実際、クオリーメン;ビートルズ;ジョン・レノンとしてバディ・ホリーのオリジナル "Words of Love" "Mailman, Bring Me No More Blues" "Peggy Sue" "That'll Be The Day"などを録音しています)。ブラインド・フェイスも"Well... All Right"を録音していますし、ホリーズに至ってはバンド名をバディ・ホリーから拝借しています。

    一般的評価としてはチャック・ベリーやエルヴィス・プレスリー以下かもしれませんが、カントリーをロックに取り込んだこと、シャウトしない・しゃくりあげるよな独特な歌い方、・・・などなど、個性豊かな素晴らしいミュージシャンだと思います。亡くなったのが、キャリアのピークがまだまだ先と思われる時期であっただけに、本当に惜しいです。

    ここでは、敢えてこのアルバムに入っていないこの曲を付けておきます。この時期のロックの歌詞はどれも " 3 little words" に毛が生えた程度、深みのない歌詞が多いですが、そうした時期にこんな味わいのある歌詞を書いていたバディ・ホリーは、やはり時代の先を走っていた人だったと思います。

    "Learning The Game"

    Hearts that are broken and love that's untrue
    These go with learning the game

    When you love her and she doesn't love you
    You're only learning the game

    When she says that you're the only one she'll ever love
    Then you find that you are not the one she's thinking of

    Feeling so sad and you're all alone and blue
    That's when you're learning the game

    When she says that you're the only one she'll ever love
    Then you find that you are not the one she's thinking of

    Feeling so sad and you're all alone and blue
    That's when you're learning the game

    That's when you're learning the game

    Simon & Garfunkel / Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. (Columbia, CL 2249)<October 19, 1964>MAT ; 1B / 1B

    Simon & Garfunkel / Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M.(Columbia, CL 2249)<released ; October 19, 1964> サイモン&ガーファンクルのデビュー作。ギター、ウッド・ベース、バンジョーなどアコースティック楽器のみで作られています。オリジナルの"The Sound of Silence"もいいですが、静謐な"Bleecker Street"や穏やかな讃美歌"Benedictus"など聴きどころはたくさんあります。USオリジナル盤自体少ないですが、プロモはまず見かけません。

    このアルバムの1曲と言われれば、僕はこれです!

    Simon & Garfunkel / Sounds Of Silence (Columbia, CL 2469) <January 17, 1966> MAT ; 1C / 1C

    Simon & Garfunkel / Sounds Of Silence (Columbia, CL 2469) <January 17, 1966>

    オリジナルは①モノラルの初期盤はSound Of Silenceが青字で曲目記載がありません。「including 'Homeward Bound'」の記載もありません。② ジャケの裏面の3枚の写真の一枚(二人が同時に写っている一番大きな写真)のガーファンクルが「Tiger Beat Magazine」をポケットに入れています(後に修正されて黒塗りにされます)。ガーファンクル一人の写真では右手に同雑誌を持っていますが、これも修正されます。③'ANJI'の記載にばらつきがあります。'ANJI - In Manuscript'とか 'ANJI - Written by Davy Graham, one of England's finest jazz/blues guitarists'などと記載されていたり、'ANGIE'と記載されたり・・・。ちなみに最初期は「ANGIE」記載です。④ラベルは「2eye」(ロゴマークが二つ)です。⑤裏ジャケの下端の曲目が一切記載されていないものは本当に珍しいです。

    表題曲はもちろん、若者らしく虚無的な"Leaves That Are Green"、まるでマザーグースの作品のように簡素な"April Come She Will"など、このアルバムにもいい曲が多いです。それらの中でも、オチになって初めて意味が分かる"I Am A Rock"が好きでした。

    "I Am A Rock"

    A winter's day
    In a deep and dark December
    I am alone
    Gazing from my window
    To the streets below
    On a freshly fallen, silent shroud of snow
    I am a rock
    I am an island

    I've built walls
    A fortress, steep and mighty
    That none may penetrate
    I have no need of friendship
    Friendship causes pain.
    It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.
    I am a rock
    I am an island

    Don't talk of love
    Well, I've heard the words before
    It's sleeping in my memory
    And I won't disturb the slumber
    Of feelings that have died
    If I never loved, I never would have cried
    I am a rock
    I am an island

    I have my books
    And my poetry to protect me
    I am shielded in my armor
    Hiding in my room
    Safe within my womb
    I touch no one and no one touches me
    I am a rock
    I am an island

    And a rock feels no pain
    And an island never cries

    Simon & Garfunkel/ Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme(Columbia, CL 2563, mono)<released ; October 10, 1966> サイモンとガーファンクルの3作目。このレコのマトの末尾は「1C/1C」です。

    このアルバムで1曲と言えば、アーティの素晴らしい歌が聴けるこれです!幻想的で霧の中を歩くような気がします。

    "For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her"

    What a dream I had
    Pressed in organdy
    Clothed in crinoline of smoky burgundy
    Softer than the rain
    I wandered empty streets
    Down past the shop displays
    I heard cathedral bells
    Tripping down the alley ways
    As I walked on

    And when you ran to me
    Your cheeks flushed with the night
    We walked on frosted fields
    Of juniper and lamplight
    I held your hand

    And when I awoke and felt you warm and near
    I kissed your honey hair with my grateful tears
    Oh, I love you, girl
    Oh, I love you

    Simon & Garfunkel, Dave Grusin / The Graduate (Original Sound Track Recording) (US, Columbia, OS 3180) <January 21, 1968> MAT ; 1A / 1A

    サイモン&ガーファンクル+デイヴ・グルーシンによる映画「卒業」のサンドトラック・アルバムです。

    この作品は、1968年1月末に発表され1968年4月6日から5月24日まで7週連続でビルボードのアルバム・チャートでNo.1となりました。5月25日からは4月に発売されたサイモン&ガーファンクルの4作目『ブックエンド』がビルボードのアルバム・チャートNo.1になり、6月15日付から22日付にかけて再び本サントラ作がNo.1に返り咲き、その後はまた『ブックエンド』が1位になるという珍現象が起きています。

    リアルタイムで聴いていた世代の方々には思い入れがあるアルバムだそうですが、実際には発表された曲の同一テイクの再収録+デイヴ・グルーシンのインストを中心に構成されているだけで、後追い世代的にはS&G作品としての魅力に欠けると感じます。

    ただ、1stアルバムや2ndアルバムに収録された2つと別テイクの「サウンド・オブ・サイレンス」が入っているだけでも、十分に価値を感じます。

    "The Sound Of Silence"

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I've come to talk with you again
    Because a vision softly creeping
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence

    In restless dreams I walked alone
    Narrow streets of cobblestone
    'Neath the halo of a streetlamp
    I turned my collar to the cold and damp
    When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
    That split the night
    And touched the sound of silence

    And in the naked light I saw
    Ten thousand people, maybe more
    People talking without speaking
    People hearing without listening
    People writing songs that voices never share
    No one dare
    Disturb the sound of silence

    "Fools" said I, "You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you"
    But my words like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed in the wells of silence

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon god they made
    And the sign flashed out its warning
    In the words that it was forming
    And the sign said "The words of the prophets
    Are written on the subway walls
    And tenement halls
    And whispered in the sounds of silence"

    Bruce Springsteen / Born To Run (Columbia, PC 33795) <August 25, 1975> MAT ; 1C / 1C

    このプロモはマト違いもありますし、さらに初期のプレスでジャケの活字違いがあります。活字違いのは何度か海外で見かけましたが、いつも20-30万円ぐらいです。さすがに買えません・・・。

    Roy Orbison大ファンの僕としては冒頭の"Roy Orbison singing for the lonely, hey, that's me, and I want you only"の一節でググっと来ます。オリジナルももちろんいいですが、ライヴで、ピアノだけをバックに歌われるこのヴァージョンを聴いてると、いつ死んでもエエわ、ってほど幸せな気分になります。

    "Thunder Road"

    The screen door slams
    Mary's dress waves
    Like a vision she dances across the porch
    As the radio plays

    Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
    Hey that's me and I want you only
    Don't turn me home again
    I just can't face myself alone again

    Don't run back inside
    Darling, you know just what I'm here for
    So you're scared and you're thinking
    That maybe we ain't that young anymore

    Show a little faith there's magic in the night
    You ain't a beauty but hey you're alright
    Oh and that's alright with me

    You can hide 'neath your covers
    And study your pain
    Make crosses from your lovers
    Throw roses in the rain

    Waste your summer praying in vain
    For a saviour to rise from these streets

    Well now I'm no hero
    That's understood
    All the redemption I can offer girl
    Is beneath this dirty hood

    With a chance to make it good somehow
    Hey what else can we do now
    Except roll down the window
    And let the wind blow back your hair?
    Well the night's busting open
    These two lanes will take us anywhere

    We got one last chance to make it real
    To trade in these wings on some wheels
    Climb in back
    Heaven's waiting down on the tracks

    Oh-oh come take my hand
    We're riding out tonight to case the promised land
    Oh-oh Thunder Road oh Thunder Road oh Thunder Road

    Lying out there like a killer in the sun
    Hey I know it's late we can make it if we run
    Oh Thunder Road sit tight take hold
    Thunder Road

    Well I got this guitar
    And I learned how to make it talk
    And my car's out back
    If you're ready to take that long walk

    From your front porch to my front seat
    The door's open but the ride ain't free
    And I know you're lonely
    For words that I ain't spoken
    But tonight we'll be free
    All the promises'll be broken

    There were ghosts in the eyes
    Of all the boys you sent away
    They haunt this dusty beach road
    In the skeleton frames of burned-out Chevrolets

    They scream your name at night in the street
    Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
    And in the lonely cool before dawn
    You hear their engines roaring on
    When you get to the porch they're gone
    On the wind

    So Mary climb in
    It's a town full of losers
    And I'm pulling out of here to win

    side 2 のマトの末尾「2B」は確かですが、その手前ははっきりと読めません。

    タイトル曲は1950年代のネブラスカで起きた実際の事件を題材にした内容で、連続殺人犯の独白というスタイルになっています。ちなみにこの事件はOliver Stoneの映画"Natural Born Killers"にもなっています。

    Nebraska
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iir_xAbt-ak

    I saw her stangin' on her front lawn
    Just twirlin' her baton
    Me and her went for a ride sir
    And ten innocent people died

    From the town of Lincoln Nebraska
    Aith a sawed-off .410 on my lap
    Through to the badlands of Wyoming
    I killed everything in my path

    I can't say that I'm sorry
    For the things that we done
    At least for a little while sir
    Me and her we had us some fun

    The jury brought in a guilty verdict
    And the judge he sentenced me to death
    Midnight in prision storeroom
    With leather straps across my chest

    Sheriff when the man pulls
    That switch sir and snaps my poor neck back
    You make sure my pretty baby
    Is sittin' right there on my lap

    They declared me unfit to live
    Said into that great void my soul'd be hurled
    They wanted to know why I did what I did
    Well sir I guess there's just a meanness in this world

    この、とんでもない内容のタイトル曲を、匿名掲示板もない時代に暮らす平凡な中学生だったころに聴きました。特に理由もない、ただ純粋な「悪意」というものを初めて意識して、心底気味悪かったのを思い出します。

    ちなみに別のコピーのマトリクスは末尾が3A/2Aでした。

    70年代後半~80年代に数多く生まれた「ベトナム帰還兵をテーマにした、アメリカを告発する作品」のひとつです。日本人としては腑に落ちない理解困難な表現も多いのですが、それでも皮肉や婉曲表現であることは理解できます。それが、母国語として接しているはずのアメリカ人が「愛国歌」と受け取ってしまったというのが、本当に不思議。まあ、それだけシンプルで力があるサビだったと言うことなんでしょうが。

    レーガンが「アメリカ生まれを誇る歌」「古き良きアメリカを体現する若者」として言及し、スプリングスティーンは保守派に祭り上げられかけました。その後、スプリングスティーンは作品意図に言及したり、直接的な政治的発言をせざるを得なくなりました。確かジャケ写真についても「オシッコかけてる」と言ったような記憶が・・・・(ガセかな)。近年は反発を食らいながらも積極的にオバマ大統領を支援したことでも知られますね。まあ、歌を聴いていると、当然そういうスタンスだろうなと思いますが。

    "Born In The U.S.A."

    Born down in a dead man's town
    The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
    You end up like a dog that's been beat too much
    Till you spend half your life just covering up

    Born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    Born in the U.S.A.

    Got in a little hometown jam
    So they put a rifle in my hand
    Sent me off to a foreign land
    To go and kill the yellow man

    Born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    I was born in the U.S.A.
    Born in the U.S.A.

    Come back home to the refinery         *refinery「精製所、製油所」
    Hiring man says "Son if it was up to me"
    Went down to see my V.A. man    *V.A.=「Veterans Affairs」アメリカ合衆国退役軍人省
    He said "Son, don't you understand"

    I had a brother at Khe Sanh fighting off the Viet Cong  *Khe Sanh;地名。「ケサンの戦い」で有名。
    They're still there, he's all gone

    He had a woman he loved in Saigon
    I got a picture of him in her arms now

    Down in the shadow of the penitentiary    *penitentiary 〈米〉州[連邦]刑務所

    このコピーは、A面が「14396」でB面が「14395」ですね(ほかのコピーではA面が「14398」でB面で「14397」です)。
    なぜなんでしょうか・・・?
    あと"NEVER LET YOUR MONSTER LAY DOWN" "FROM THE POLACK WHO SAILED NORTH" の意味、ご存じの方、お教え下さい。

    この曲が嫌いな人って、まずいないと思います。

    "I Can't Tell You Why"

    Look at us baby, up all night
    Tearing our love apart
    Aren't we the same two people
    Who lived through years in the dark?

    Every time I try to walk away
    Something makes me turn around and stay
    And I can't tell you why

    When we get crazy
    It just ain't right
    (try to keep your head, little girl)
    Girl, I get lonely, too
    You don't have to worry
    Just hold on tight
    (don't get caught in your little world)
    'Cause I love you

    Nothing's wrong as far as I can see
    We make it harder than it has to be
    And I can't tell you why
    No, baby, I can't tell you why
    I can't tell you why

    Every time I try to walk away
    Something makes me turn around and stay
    And I can't tell you why

    No, no, baby, I can't tell you why
    I can't tell you why
    I can't tell you why, no

    Eagles / The Long Run (US, Asylum Records, 5E-508) < September 24, 1979>

    Eagles / The Long Run (Asylum Records, 5E-508) <released ; September 24, 1979>

    USオリジナル盤、「Promotional Use Only」記載プロモ・ラベル(本作品に白ラベルはありません)。この盤のプロモは、ジャケに「ゴールド・スタンプ」が押された盤と、ジャケに「プロモ・シール」が貼られた盤があります。

    このコピーのマトリクス;ランアウトの記載は
    (side A)5E 508 B AR B-14398  "NEVER LET YOUR MONSTER LAY DOWN"
    (side B)5E 508 B 6AR   "FROM THE POLACK WHO SAILED NORTH"  B-14397 です。
    どうしてA面が「14398」でB面で「14397」なんでしょうね・・・??

    "The Long Run"

    I used to hurry a lot, I used to worry a lot
    I used to stay out till the break of day
    Oh, that didn't get it
    It was high time I quit it
    I just couldn't carry on that way

    Oh, I did some damage, I know it's true
    Didn't know I was so lonely, till I found you
    You can go the distance
    We'll find out in the long run
    (In the long run)
    We can handle some resistance
    If our love is a strong one (is a strong one)

    People talkin' about us
    They got nothin' else to do
    When it all comes down we will
    Still come through
    In the long run
    Ooh, I want to tell you, it's a long run

    You know I don't understand why you don't
    Treat yourself better
    Do the crazy things that you do

    'Cause all the debutantes in Houston, baby
    Couldn't hold a candle to you

    Did you do it for love?
    Did you do it for money?
    Did you do it for spite?
    Did you think you had to, honey?

    Who is gonna make it?
    We'll find out in the long run
    (In the long run)
    I know we can take it
    If our love is a strong one
    (Is a strong one)

    Well, we're scared, but we ain't shakin'
    Kinda bent, but we ain't breakin'
    In the long run
    Ooh, I want to tell you, it's a long run
    In the long run
    In the long run ...

    "Long Train Runnin'"

    Down around the corner
    A half a mile from here
    You see them long trains runnin'
    And you watch them disappear

    Without love
    Where would you be now
    Without love

    You know I saw Miss Lucy
    Down along the tracks
    She lost her home and her family
    And she won't be comin' back

    Without love
    Where would you be right now
    Without love

    Well the Illinois Central
    And the Southern Central Freight
    Gotta keep on pushin' Mama
    'Cause you know they're runnin' late

    Without love
    Where would you be now - now, now, now
    Without love

    Well the Illinois Central
    And the Southern Central Freight
    Gotta keep on pushin' Mama
    You know they're runnin' late

    Without love
    Where would you be now
    Without love

    When pistons keep on churnin'
    And the wheels go 'round and 'round
    And the steel rails lie cold and hard
    For the miles that they go down

    Without love
    Where would you be right now
    Without love

    Where would you be now

    Gotta get ya, baby, baby
    Won't you boogie down?
    Won't you boogie down?

    Baby, baby, baby, baby
    Won't you boogie down?

    Where the big trains run
    When the trains are movin' on

    Ya gotta keep on movin'
    Keep on movin'
    Keep on movin'
    Won't ya keep on movin'

    The Doobie Brothers / Toulouse Street (Warner Bros. Records, BS 2634) <July 1, 1972> MAT ; 1B / 1A

    曲でいえば"Long Train Runnin'"は外せませんが、アルバム単位で考えると、この2作目と5作目"Stampede"が大好きです。

    "Listen To The Music"

    Don't you feel it growin', day by day
    People gettin' ready for the news
    Some are happy, some are sad
    Oh, we got to let the music play
    What the people need
    Is a way to make 'em smile
    It ain't so hard to do if you know how
    Gotta get a message
    Get it on through
    Oh, now mama's go'n' to after 'while
    Oh, oh, listen to the music
    Oh, oh, listen to the music
    Oh, oh, listen to the music
    All the time

    Well I know, you know better
    Everything I say
    Meet me in the country for a day
    We'll be happy
    And we'll dance
    Oh, we're gonna dance our blues away
    And if I'm feelin' good to you
    And you're feelin' good to me
    There ain't nothin' we can't do or say
    Feelin' good, feeling fine
    Oh, baby, let the music play

    Oh, oh, listen to the music
    Oh, oh, listen to the music
    Oh, oh, listen to the music
    All the time

    Like a lazy flowing river
    Surrounding castles in the sky
    And the crowd is growing bigger
    List'nin' for the happy sounds
    And I got to let them fly

    Oh, oh, listen to the music
    Oh, oh, listen to the music
    Oh, oh, listen to the music
    All the time

    The Doobie Brothers / The Doobie Brothers (Warner Bros. Records, WS 1919) <April 30, 1971> MAT ; 1B / 1A

    記念すべきデビュー作。黒いジャケのためリングウエアが目立ちやすく、おかげできれいなものを探すのは大変です。内容は2-5作目に共通する雰囲気ですが、アルバムの要になる魅力的な曲が不在です。。。

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STHngjtmTMs

    "Nobody"

    Evil ways of practice may surround you
    Callin' on your inner core of life
    But your father was just a complex man of bus'ness
    And your mother merely portioned out your fright
    But run the risk of a sudden loss
    You got no mama to bear your cross beside you
    Uh huh, uh huh
    As midnight angels shine their wings
    And time begins just bo build a wall around you
    Nobody, nobody gonna take my love away from me
    Nobody, nobody gonna take my love away from me

    Settin' out on a voyage down to Jenner
    I've given all I've got to help the cause
    Need a place just to settle out my pressures
    A place where you and I can sit and pause
    So I can see the sky at night
    Without a fear of hidden light to blind me
    Mm, mm
    And so you see the path is clear
    And changes will be swayed around me

    Nobody, nobody gonna take my love away from me
    Nobody, nobody gonna take my love away from me

    USオリジナル盤のプロモ盤。この作品に白ラベル盤やプロモ・ラベル盤はありません。
    5-6枚は見たことがありますが、マトリクスは確かすべて同一でした
    (少なくとも、現在所有しているもう一枚は全く同じ)。

    ドゥービー・ブラザーズといえば初期、特にセカンドと5枚目が大好きなのですが、でもこの作品も、たまらない名曲揃いです。「1曲も嫌いな曲がない!」という作品は珍しいのですが、これはそんな一枚です。

    "One Step Closer"

    Baby, there's a chance you ought to take
    Chance of a mistake you gotta make
    Maybe I'm mistaken too
    To take my chance with you
    I need you like a shadow needs a light
    I'll follow you like morning follows night
    When nothin's left ahead of you
    I'll be right behind you
    Shadows disappear at night
    We both know it's a shame if you should lose one
    Why is it so hard to find
    Tell me that you're right there too
    One step baby
    Two steps maybe
    One step closer
    I'll be next to you

    Baby, it's a secret I can't keep
    Trouble comes and suddenly you're weak
    I don't believe you got the strength
    To fight this kind of love
    I know it's risky now and then
    What with all the what ifs and the whens
    Who is there to say we're wrong - to tell us it can't be
    Come on, baby, please don't go
    I'm no heart of stone and you know
    Why is it so hard to do
    Tell me that you're right there too, baby

    Baby, can't you see we're runnin' late
    Can't you see we ain't got time to wait
    Might be that you're scared of me
    Of something you might feel
    Hold on to me, baby, hold on tight
    I can take us through the night all right
    Maybe I will stay here too
    Take my chance with you

    Shadows disappear at night
    We both know it's a shame if you should lose one
    Why is it so hard to find
    Tell me that you're right there too

    One step baby
    Two steps maybe
    One step closer

    「UKのバンドのUS盤に何の価値があるのか?」というご意見もありますが、気にせずUS盤で集めています。

    クイーンの「オペラ座の夜」に大きな影響を与えた1曲目、ビリー・ジョエルの「素顔のままで」に影響を与えた2曲目が有名ですが、ほかにもいい曲がいっぱいです。このアルバムから1曲選ぶとしたら、コレでしょうけど。

    I'm Not In Love

    I'm not in love
    So don't forget it
    It's just a silly phase I'm going through
    And just because
    I call you up
    Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made
    I'm not in love, no no, it's because..

    I like to see you
    But then again
    That doesn't mean you mean that much to me
    So if I call you
    Don't make a fuss
    Don't tell your friends about the two of us
    I'm not in love, no no, it's because..

    I keep your picture
    Upon the wall
    It hides a nasty stain that's lying there
    So don't you ask me
    To give it back
    I know you know it doesn't mean that much to me
    I'm not in love, no no, it's because..

    Ooh you'll wait a long time for me
    Ooh you'll wait a long time
    Ooh you'll wait a long time for me
    Ooh you'll wait a long time

    I'm not in love
    So don't forget it
    It's just a silly phase I'm going through
    And just because I call you up
    Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made
    I'm not in love
    I'm not in love

    10cc / Bloody Tourists (Polydor, PD-1-6161, 2480 477) <September 1978> MAT ; AS-CP3 / AS-CP×-BS

    1978年作品。10㏄では評価が低めになっていますが、個人的には3作目と並んで大好きな作品です。"For You And I"は"I'm Not In Love"と遜色ない名曲ですし、"Shock On Tube"の冒頭のハーモニー、軽快な"From Rochdale- "など聴きどころだらけ。もちろんNo.1ヒットになった"Dreadlock Holiday"もいい曲です。

    マトをどのように読めばいいのか、よくわかりませんが・・・・。

    For You And I

    The world is full of other people (ooh ooh)
    Take a look around
    We're quick to laugh when they've got troubles (ooh ooh)
    And we put 'em down
    We go
    We're not so hot you know
    It's like a roller coaster
    On a downward motion
    On a one way street
    We can't control our feet
    We're on the road to ruin
    Don't know what we're doin'
    She may be quiet
    She may be shy
    But don't you bring her down
    Don't pass her by
    The world of wisdom behind her eyes
    Could answer everything
    But you and I
    We seem to wander in a daydream (ooh ooh)
    We never look around
    The world is full of other people (ooh ooh)
    And we put 'em down
    We go
    We're not so hot you know
    It's like a roller coaster
    On a downward motion
    On a one way street
    We can't control our feet
    We're on the road to ruin
    Don't know…
