Sally Simpson Lyrics


by . From Tommy.


[NARRATOR]

Outside the house Mr. Simpson announced
That Sally couldn't go to the meeting.
He went on cleaning his black Rolls Royce
And she ran inside weeping.
She got to her room and tears splashed the picture
Of the new Messiah.
She picked up a book of her father's life
And threw it on the fire!
She knew from the start
Deep down in her heart
That she and Tommy were worlds apart,
But her mother said, "Never mind, your part...
Is to be what you'll be."
The theme of the sermon was come unto me,
Love will find a way,
So Sally decided to ignore her dad,
And sneak out anyway!
She spent all afternoon getting ready,
Decided she'd try to touch him,
Maybe he'd see that she was free
And talk to her this Sunday.
She knew from the start
Deep down in her heart
That she and Tommy were worlds apart,
But her mother said, "Never mind, your part...
Is to be what you'll be."
She arrived at six and the place was swinging
To gospel music by nine.
Group after group appeared on the stage
And Sally just sat there crying.
She bit her nails looking pretty as a picture
Right in the very front row
And then one of the people came on stage
And shouted, "Here we go!"
The crowd went crazy as Tommy hit the stage!
Little Sally got lost as the police bossed
The crowd back in a rage!

[TOMMY]

Your happy welcome is like a favor
I must now return.
The darkness of my childhood past
And flames of blood now burn.
The pinball game I play so well
Reflects a way of life.
This meeting is just another game;
Let's play to win, tonight!

[NARRATOR]

She knew from the start
Deep down in her heart
That she and Tommy were worlds apart,
But her mother said, "Never mind, your part...
Is to be what you'll be."
Her cheek hit a chair and blood trickled down,
Mingling with her tears.

[TOMMY]

Try to walk the path I walked,
Never mind the pain and fear.
Each one of you has freedom
In your heart without my grace.
Let me see you raise your hands
See joy upon your face!

[NARRATOR]

The crowd went crazy
As Tommy left the stage!
Little Sally was lost for the price of a touch
And a gash across her face, her pretty face! Ooooh.
Sixteen stitches put her right and her Dad said,
"Don't say I didn't warn yer."
Sally got married to a rock musician
She met in California.
Tommy always talks about the day
The disciples all went wild!
Sally still carries a scar on her cheek
To remind her of his smile.
She knew from the start
Deep down in her heart
That she and Tommy were worlds apart,
But her mother said, "Never mind, your part...
Is to be what you'll be."
