Eyes gaze around, loving Lovell’s. Tasting the vinyl vein of Penny Lane.
In the ears, Angus Young meets Shaun Cassidy, while channels are unscrambled on the T.V.
It was a far, bidden time, but it was vinyl, and if you had a vinyl couch, you listened, idle,
But as we sat in the corner, we reflected, while a square, shiny paper had expanded.
Put it on in the middle, listen to it a little longer!
The groove’ll get scratchy, but it makes it sound that much stronger.
It’s a piece of melted vinyl, not a dinner plate!
Preserve your 33 and a 1/3’s for when it’s too late…
Like now (skip) Like now (skip) like now (skip) Like…
Gerhart street and 45’s…bought a song or two just to feel alive.
Weekend rummage sales and 7-8’s; gotta horde ‘em all before it gets late (and they’re gone)!
Susie left for Mike, it was “Rain Song”. Got a pizza job, it was “(Linger On) Pale Blue Eyes”.
Lost a brother, it was “Double Dare”. Met a bud named Buddy, it was “Master”, “Coup d’etat”!
Moved to a city that was “Stone In Love” with scattered images of “Rise Above”.
No matter what, the needle always breaks, right in the middle, where “The Levee Breaks”!
