Sally Simpson - The Who

 

Outside the house Mr Simpson announced

That Sally couldn't go to the meeting

 

He went on cleanin' his Blue Rolls Royce

And she ran inside weeping

 

She got to her room and tears splashed the picture

Of a 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

And love will find a way"

 

So Sally decided to ignore her dad

And sneak out anyway

 

She spent all afternoon gettin' ready

And decided she'd try to touch him

 

And 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 cryin'

 

She bit her nails looking pretty as a picture

Right in the very front row

 

And then a DJ wearin' a blazer with a badge

Ran on and said "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

 

Soon the atmosphere was cooler

And Tommy gave a lesson

 

Sally just had to let him know she loved him

And leapt up on the rostrum

 

She ran across stage to the spotlit figure

And brushed him on the face

 

Tommy whirled 'round as a uniformed man

Throw her off the stage

 

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

Minglin' with her tears

 

Tommy carried on preachin'

And his voice filled Sally's ears

 

She caught his eye she had to try

But he couldn't see through the lights

 

Her face was gashed and the ambulance men

Had to carry her out that night

 

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

 

Sixteen stitches put her right

And her dad said "Don't say I didn't warn you"

 

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"
