Sally Simpson Lyrics

Artist: The Who
Album: Tommy

Outside the house Mr. Simpson announced
That Sally couldn't go to the meeting
He went on cleaning his blue Rolls Royce
And she ran inside weeping.
She got to her room and tears splashed the picture
Of the new Messiah.
She picked up the 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,
And 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 a DJ wearing 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.

But soon the atmosphere was cooler
As Tommy gave a lesson.
Sally just had to let him know she loved him
And leapt up on the rostrum.
She ran cross stage to the spotlit figure
And touched him on the face.
Tommy whirled around as a uniformed man
Threw 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
Mingling with her tears.
Tommy carried on preaching
And his voice filled Sally's ears.
She caught his eye, she had to try,
But couldn't see through ther 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. OOooooh.

Sixteen stiches 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 diciples 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".
