When We Were The New Boys – Rod Stewart

Lirik lagu: When We Were The New Boys

Every face that crammed this hall
And in this room our hats were hung
And words were written and songs were sung
And we held our glasses high
And we dared to reach for the sky
And we never would grow old
When we were the new boys
And on these streets we were like kings
We’d roll and tumble, fight and sing
And in these smoky pubs the yarns were spun
And many a sweetheart was lost and won
And on these green fields we played for pride
No quarter given, no compromise
We were lovers and we were sons
When we were the new boys
Behind this cellar door on cheap guitars
We played our blues til the early hours
No one listening but a few old friends
We never dreamed it could ever end
This was our moment, this was our space
This was a jewel of a time to have graced
But they’re all sweet memories now
When we were the new boys
All my life I’ve been running
down the side of this hill
But way down deep in my heart
don’t want the water to ever be still
All these friends have long since gone
Blown and scattered like autumn leaves
Some are lawyers and some are thieves
Some are now behind the sun
But I’ll never be afraid
>From the cradle to the grave
I learned my lesson and I learned it well
When we were the new boys

The Nearness of You – Rod Stewart

It’s not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me, oh no
It’s just the nearness of you

It isn’t your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation, oh no
It’s just the nearness of you

When you’re in my arms and I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams come true

I need no soft lights to enchant me
But if you’ll only grant me the right
To hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night ooh the nearness of you

When you’re in my arms and I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams come true

I need no soft lights to enchant me
But if you’ll only grant me the right
To hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night the nearness of you

Almost Illegal – Rod Stewart

Lirik lagu: Almost Illegal

Yeah, I said yeah
I remember the first time
That I ever seen her face
I was standing by the drug store
Tryin’ to save the human race
Took a raincheck on a blind date
To get her prescription filled
We had a short talk and a long walk
Through the lazy cottonfield
It was hot
She was cool and sultry
We made love
I was broke and lonely
She’s wonderful, so beautiful
So delectable, she’s mine
She’s desirable, so lovable
And it’s criminal, almost illegal
Well we woke up in a barnyard
When I heard a farmer shout
“Get away, boy, from my daughter!
When a shotgun rang out
We took off
She was right behind me
Ran like the wind
What a crazy lady
She’s fabulous, so sensuous
She’s marvelous, she’s mine
I’m delirious, it’s serious
Kinda dangerous, almost illegal
Bring it down, now.
We had a one child by the springtime
And another on the way
I got a new life and a good wife
Ain’t that amazing grace
It was hot
She was cool and sultry
We made love
I was broke and lonely
She’s wonderful, she’s beautiful
She’s desirable, she’s mine
I’m delirious, she’s serious
It’s kinda dangerous, almost illegal
Wonderful, so beautiful
She’s not a radical, but she’s mine
She’s fabulous, so sensuous
And it’s marvelous, almost illegal
Beautiful and she’s wonderful
So desirable, almost illegal

A Night Like This – Rod Stewart

Lirik lagu: A Night Like This

Sixteen years old, looking for a hideaway
I’m a set designer, my Mum and Dad thinking I’m gay
I’m a lazy bugger, but I like my spart
Like girls and music, I’m happy, happy sort (of a guy)
But there’s one thing I’m lacking, it’s sexual experience
So I ask you, my sweetheart, save me from this wilderness
I’ve dreamed, honey, of a night like this
Where I come from, love is just a hole in the wall
And the steel mills ring out and generations heed the call
And the rain never stops and the skies are grey
And the chance of romance, slim as a bright sunny day
This is partly the reason, I’m so overwhelmed and shy
Because your beauty, by contrast, is gonna make a young man cry
I’ve dreamed, honey, of a night like this
I’ve schemed, honey, of a night like this
You don’t know what it means to a boy from a suburban home
To be left with a woman like you, completely alone
I’ve dreamed, honey, of a night like this
Nice place you’ve got here, babe, never seen a house like this
Pool like an ocean, bed like a football pitch
ll the guys at the boozer, won’t believe my luck
But it couldn’t have happened to a nicer bloke (than me)
So here we are, the record’s gotten stuck in the groove
My knees are trembling, c’mon baby, make your move
I’ve dreamed, honey, of a night like this
I’ve schemed, honey, of a night like this
I’ve dreamed, I’ve schemed, honey, of a night like this
I’ve dreamed, honey, of a night like this
