Likely Lads
by The Libertines

Please don't get me wrong
See I forgive you with a song
We'll call the Likely Lads

But if it's left to you
I know exactly what you'd do
With all the dreams we had

'Cause blood runs thicker, oh
We're thick as thieves, you know
If it's important to you
It's important to me
I tried to make you see
But you don't wanna know
You don't want to know

If you pipe all summer long
Then get forgiven in a song
Well that's a touch, my lad

They sold them rights to all my wrongs
And when they needed the new songs
It’s ‘welcome back’, how sad

'Cause blood runs thicker, oh
We're thick as thieves, you know
If that's important to you
It's important to me
I tried to make you see
But you don't wanna know
You don't want to know

Oh what became of the Likely Lads?
What became of the dreams we had?
Oh what became of forever, though?
Oh what became of forever, though?
But, we'll never know

Please don't get me wrong
See I forgive you in a song
We call the Likely Lads

We all bought the ones
We taught 'em all we wrote the songs
That's filled with dreams we have

But blood runs thicker, oh
We're thick as thieves, you know
If that's important to you
It's important to me
I tried to make you see
But you don't wanna know
You don't want to know

Oh what became of the Likely Lads?
What became of the dreams we had?
Oh what became of forever, though?
Oh what became of forever, though?
We'll never know

But blood runs thicker, oh
We're thick as thieves, you know
If that's important to you
Yes it's important to me
I tried to make you see
But you don't wanna know
You don't want to know

Oh what became of the Likely Lads?
What became of the dreams we had?
Oh what became of forever, though?
Oh what became of forever, though?
We'll never know

The ideal girl,
In London from France
Came over, then left me,
She left me entranced
Now I have to get by,
Once again on my own,
Nothing but memories

So I remember your eyes,
In their dark shade of brown,
While these blue eyes of mine,
They stay closed
I kissed you goodbye on the M-109
I choked as I watched the bus go, oh-oh

Choking and smoking to your angelic soul,
Choking and smoking myself into a hole,
Where the only way out is to sleep and to dream,
And to cry out your name

Alexandra Wimmer Not too many of my friends know about them either - & my friends have a pretty solid working knowledge of killer tunes.
Really my ex-husband & ex BF are the only ppl I've known who love them.
Oh well...
I love them!😍😍

Timothy Dannenhoffer ... well, this might be more to do with yourself than the Libertines ...
