Big Star Lyrics


Won't you let me walk you home from school?
Won't you let me meet you at the pool?
Maybe Friday I can
Get tickets for the dance
And I'll take you, ooh-ooh

Won't you tell your dad, "Get off my back"
Tell him what we said 'bout 'Paint It Black'
Rock and Roll is here to stay
Come inside where it's okay
And I'll shake you, ooh-ooh

Won't you tell me what you're thinking of?
Would you be an outlaw for my love?
If it's so, well, let me know
If it's no, well, I can go
I won't make you, ooh-ooh

Get tickets for the dance
And I'll take you
Oh, oh, oh

Won't you tell your dad to get off my back?
Tell him what we said about "Paint It Black"
Rock and roll is here to stay
Come inside now, it's ok
And I'll shake you
Oh, oh, oh

Won't you tell me what you're thinking of?
Would you be an outlaw for my love?
If it's so then let me know
If it's no then I can go
And I won't make you
Oh, oh, oh

I am both surprised and extremely pleased to see this song has over a million views. Big Star was one of the very best and it's great to see them get some well deserved attention.

@Genevieve Antoinette, huge shame that Mr. Chilton had to go out that way. A lot of times when the no health coverage strikes a great and well known musician as Alex surely was other bands come together to perform and raise the money for the musician. Didn’t happen, don’t know why and it was a damn shame it didn’t happen.With that (beautiful name)Genevieve, “Cheer’s” from Dundee, Scotland.

That 70's show helped get it out there again.

@Lauren Brooks  you have indeed. so have I.
I was doing some research on the music genre "Power Pop". I knew some of Big Stars songs but not this one.
Then I read,
"Rolling Stone describes it as "one of rock's most beautiful celebrations of adolescence", and rated it #396 on their list of the 500 greatest songs of all time."

@nwhat31 i feel like I have just stumbled upon a hidden gem of internet history

This song makes me nostalgic for a life I've never had, honestly almost makes me tear up. I love it so much
