Ooh La La
by Faces

Poor old granddad
I laughed at all his words
I thought he was a bitter man
He spoke of woman's ways

They'll trap you, then they use you
Before you even know
For love is blind and you're far too kind
Don't ever let it show

I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger

The can can's such a pretty show
They'll steal your heart away
But backstage, back on earth again
The dressing rooms are gray

They come on strong and it ain't too long
Before they make you feel a man
But love is blind and you soon will find
You're just a boy again

When you want her lips, you get a cheek
Makes you wonder where you are
If you want some more and she's fast asleep
Then she's twinkling with the stars

Poor young grandson, there's nothing I can say
You'll have to learn, just like me
And that's the hardest way
Ooh la la, ooh la la la yeh

I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger
I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was stronger

I remember listening to this song on the radio when I was in high school back in the early 70s. My father and I were together in the car. He listened to the lyrics and then said something like "boy is that ever true". I had no idea what he was talking about. I'm a lot older now then he was then. I wish everyone had two lives to live: one for practice and another to do it right.

Mad respect to you my good man


I'm actually from 2027, 75% of the population died from COVID-19 in 2020. At least we still have this song.
