Oldies (but Goldies) : Small Faces

Small Faces ou The Small Faces est un groupe de rock britannique fondé à Londres en 1965 qui s'est séparé en 1969. Mené par ses deux leaders, Steve Marriott (futur Humble Pie) et Ronnie Lane, il a été, avec les Who et les Kinks, l’emblème du mouvement musical et social londonien des Mods.

Itchycoo Park

Over bridge of sighs
To rest my eyes in shades of green
Under dreamin' spires
To Itchycoo Park, that's where I've been

What did you do there?
I got high
What did you feel there?
Well I cried
But why the tears there?
I'll tell you why

It's all too beautiful

I feel inclined to blow my mind
Get hung up feed the ducks with a bun
They all come out to groove about
Be niceand have fun in the sun

Tell you what I'll do (what will you do?)
I'd like to go there now with you
You can miss out school (won't that be cool)
Why go to learn the words of fools?
What will we do there?
We'll get high
What will we touch there?
We'll touch the sky
But why the tears then?
I'll tell you why

It's all too beautiful
