The Who - Quadrophenia Lyrics

I Am the Sea lyrics (00:00-02:10):

Is it me, for a moment...

Bell boy...

Love, reign o'er me...

Can you see the real me, can you, can you?

----------------------

The Real Me lyrics(02:10-05:40):

went back to the doctor

To get another shrink.

I have to tell him about my weekend,

But he never betrays what he thinks.

Can you see the real me doctor?

I went back to my mother

I said, "I'm crazy ma, help me."

She said, "I know how it feels son,

'Cos it runs in the family."

Can you see the real me, mother?

The cracks between the paving stones

Look like rivers of flowing veins.

Strange people who know me

Peeping from behind every window pane.

The girl I used to love

Lives in this yellow house.

Yesterday she passed me by,

She doesn't want to know me now.

Can you see the real me, can you?

I went to the holy man,

Full of lies and hate,

I seemed to scare him a little

So he showed me to the golden gate.

Can you see the real me preacher?

Can you see the real me doctor?

Can you see the real me mother?

Can you see the real me me me me me me

me me me me me

Cut my hair lyrics (11:30-15:30)

Why should I care

If I got to cut my hair?

I got to move with the fashion

Or be outcast.

I know I should fight

But my old man he's really alright,

And I'm still living at home

(Even though it won't last.)

Zoot suit, white jacket with side vents

Five inches long.

I'm out on the street again

And I'm leaping along.

I'm dressed right for a beachfight,

But I just can't explain

Why that uncertain feeling is still

Here in my brain.

The kids at school

Have parents that seem so cool.

And though I don't want to hurt them

Mine want me their way.

I clean my room and my shoes

But my mother found a box of blues,

And there doesn't seem much hope

They'll let me stay.

Zoot suit, white jacket with side vents

Five inches long.

I'm out on the street again

And I'm leaping along.

I'm dressed right for a beachfight,

But I just can't explain

Why that uncertain feeling is still

Here in my brain

Why do I have to be different to them?

Just to earn the respect of a dance hall friend,

We have the same old row, again and again.

Why do I have to move with a crowd

Of kids that hardly notice I'm around,

I have to work myself to death just to fit in.

I'm coming down

Got home on the very first train from town.

My dad just left for work

He wasn't talking.

It's all a game,

'Cos inside I'm just the same,

My fried egg makes me sick

First thing in the morning

The Punk Meets the Godfather lyrics (15:30-20:40)

PUNK:

You declared you would be three inches taller

You only became what we made you.

Thought you were chasing a destiny calling

You only earned what we gave you.

You fell and cried as our people were starving,

Now you know that we blame you.

You tried to walk on the trail we were carving,

Now you know that we framed you.

G.F.:

I'm the guy in the sky

Flying high Flashing eyes

No surprise I told lies

I'm the punk in the gutter

I'm the new president

But I grew and I bent

Don't you know? don't it show?

I'm the punk with the stutter.

My my my my my mmmm my my my.

PUNK:

We tried to speak between lines of oration

You could only repeat what we told you.

Your axe belongs to a dying nation,

They don't know that we own you.

You're watching movies trying to find the feelers,

You only see what we show you.

We're the slaves of the phony leaders

Breathe the air we have blown you

G.F.:

I'm the guy in the sky

Flying high Flashing eyes

No surprise I told lies

I'm the punk in the gutter

I'm the new president

But I grew and I bent

Don't you know? don't it show?

I'm the punk with the stutter.

My my my my my mmmm my my my.

have to be careful not to preach

I can't pretend that I can teach,

And yet I've lived your future out

By pounding stages like a clown.

And on the dance floor broken glass,

The bloody faces slowly pass,

The broken seats in empty rows,

It all belongs to me you know.

----------------------

I'm One lyrics (20:40-23:15)

Every year it's the same

And I feel it again

I'm a loser - no chance to win

Leaves start falling

Comedown is calling

Loneliness starts sinking in

But I'm one

I'm one

And I can see

That this is me
