Lyrics of Billy Idol Songs

 

Billy Idol

PROMISES PROMISES

words and music by: Billy Idol/Tony James, 1978

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

 

The first[last?] lot make a few mistakes

They didn't die young, they got big waists

We got let down at the back of Earls Court

[+And?] We sware that night we'd never get caught

Cos we were smarter than they were (they were)

 

We started out with guitars and hate

With our rooms in the clouds we could hardly wait

Our legs apart, our amps up high

The stage caught fire (then?) the charts blew up

And we play more than they do (they do)

 

Promises Promises

Do you remember the promises promises - I do-

Do you remember the promises promises - I do-

 

We made our shirts with sprays and knives

Then we saved up for weeks for Malcolm's strides

Our hair was short we said what we thought

We'd never be scared [we'd] never be bought

Never sell out like they did - they did

 

Promises Promises

Do you remember the promises promises - I do-

Do you remember the promises promises - I do-

 

Soon you'll get your gear form Marks and Sparks

Punk'll take over Top of the Pops

Think you're having a real cool time?

Watch out kid you're next in line - Oh Yeah

 

Do you remember the promises promises - I do-

Do you remember the promises promises - I do-

 

Where were you in '75

when there weren't no gigs and we were jive

(Promises promises promises remember)

No one gave a shit for our Rock'n'Roll dream

R men laughed re-release the Cream

(Promises promises promises remember)

And they thought we were stupid

And they thought we were stupid

And we promised we'd get back get back

Do you remember the Promises Promises

Do you remember the Promises Promises

What I do, what I do, what I do, what

I do, I do, I do, what I do, what I do

 

Promises promises promises remember

Promises promises promises remember

Promises promises promises remember

Promises promises promises remember

 

Promises promises promises remember

Promises promises promises remember

Promises promises promises remember

Promises promises promises remember

Promises promises promises remember
