Ooh La La
Faces Lyrics


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 la, yeah

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

Poor old Grandad
I laughed at all his words
I thought he was a bitter man
He spoke of women's ways
"They trap you, then they use you
Before you even know
Well, love is blind and you're far too kind
Don't ever let it show"

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 2]
The can-can such a pretty show
Will steal your heart away
But backstage back on Earth again
The dressing rooms are grey
They come on strong and it ain't too long
'Fore they make you feel a man
But love is blind and you soon will find
You're just a boy again

[Verse 3]
When you want her lips, you get her cheek
Makes you wonder where you are
If you want some more then she's fast asleep
Leaves you 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 la, yeah

[Chorus]
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

My grandfather once told me that this song would “just make sense one day”. As I sit and type this, my grandfather has long since passed. Now I have a family of my own, and I can’t wait to one day tell the same thing to my grandson. Thanks Grampy, cheers.

I feel that right now and I'm a grandpa.My heart is broken now after a 1.5 yr relationship 3.5 yrs after my wife passed.I didn't know this could effect a 60yr old man as much. A great friend of mine played this song for me way back in my teens.

Truly one of the best songs ever recorded. Ages like a fine wine.

Interesting how EVERYONE can relate to this song in their own unique way on such a deep level.

That's what good music writing does! Everyone can relate to the lyrics in their own way it can apply to everyone!
