Album solo de Paul Simon : One-Trick Pony (12 août 1980)


The first thing I remember

I was lying in my bed

I couldn't of been no more

Than one or two

I remember there's a radio

Comin' from the room next door

And my mother laughed

The way some ladies do

When it's late in the evening

And the music's seeping through


The next thing I remember

I am walking down the street

I'm feeling all right

I'm with my boys

I'm with my troops, yeah

And down along the avenue

Some guys were shooting pool

And I heard the sound

Of a cappella groups, yeah

Singing late in the evening

And all the girls out on the stoops, yeah


Then I learned to play some lead guitar

I was underage in this funky bar

And I stepped outside to smoke myself a "J"

And when I came back to the room

Everybody just seemed to move

And I turned my amp up loud and I began to play

And it was late in the evening

And I blew that room away


The first thing I remember

When you came into my life

I said I'm gonna get that girl

No matter what I do

Well I guess I'd been in love before

And once or twice I been on the floor

But I never loved no one

The way that I loved you

And it was late in the evening

And all the music seeping through
