The Queen Of 1964
Neil Sedaka Lyrics


Anyone who's played on a record date
Will remember Stage-Door-Jenny
Well, I saw her last night and man,
She looks like she wasn't gettin' any
(Ah-h-h-h-h-h-h)
Rock and roll kinda took it's toll
When she shed her inhibitians
Too many scenes in limousienes
And dressing room intermissions
She was the queen of 1964
But the truth of the matter is
Nobody wants her anymore
There was a time she could've shown you how
But nobody wants an overage groupie now

When it came to a superstar
Jenny was a braggart
Spread it all around to everyone in town
That she once had Mick Jagger
(Oh-h-h-h-h-h-h)
There's no doubt when the truth comes out
True love will over conquer
She didn't get Mick but she got a kick
And a black eye from Bianca

She was the queen of 1964
What a pity she became a shadow of
The girl she was before
She passed her prime it seems a shame, somehow
But nobody wants an overage groupie now

De-da-da-da-da-de-da-da
De-da-da-da-da
De-da-da-da-da-de-da-da
De-da-da-da-da
De-da-da-da-da-de-da-da
De-da-da-da-da
De-da-da-da-da-de-da-da
De-da-da-da-da

I'm afraid that the Morning Trade
Had a sad obiturary
There'll be no more Jenny at the door
They took her to the cemetery
(Ah-h-h-h-h-h-h)
Just an autograph book and a stereo
There was no one she was close ta
She was found with her arms around
An Elvis Presley poster

She was the queen of 1964
Tonight there'll be a moment of silence
At the Trubadour
There was a time she could've shown you how
But nobody wants an overage groupie now
But nobody wants an overage groupie now

De-da-da-da-da-de-da-da
De-da-da-da-da
De-da-da-da-da-de-da-da
De-da-da-da-da
Ba-ba-oom-a-moow-moow
Ba-ba-oom-moow-moow
Ba-ba-oom-a-moow-moow-moow-moow
Ba-ba-oom-a-moow-moow
Ba-ba-oom-moow-moow

De-da-da-da-da-de-da-da
De-da-da-da-da
De-da-da-da-da-de-da-da
De-da-da-da-da
Ba-ba-oom-a-moow-moow
Ba-ba-oom-moow-moow
Ba-ba-oom-a-moow-moow-moow-moow

Neil is beyond the hall of fame they need to invent something better for him , what a class act

Mark S

Legend ,He must be in Rock n Roll hall of fame

Kevin Davies

Legend! No more to say

Sancho O'Dell

This corker from Neil Sedaka 'The Queen of 1964' created a very similar vibe and feel to Paul Simon's hit from three years earlier in 1972 'Me and Julio' showcasing a free spirited approach and summery Hispanic feel. Wonderful tune. (Both of them)

Mark A

Always wondered why Paul Simon didn't sue him but I've come to realise that Neil's song is a completely different song in most respects and imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and it is a brilliant song.

Ian mclaughlan

Among the underrated songs in 1975

tj921able
