Messin' With the Kid
Saints Lyrics


It ain't too easy being a young man
going round in circles all of the time
you've played their game now for so long can't see
what in the world are they trying to do to me
Sometimes you get that old lost feeling
Sometimes it hits you when you're feeling down
It's that old feeling that brings you down
I say it makes you crawl, right up the nearest wall
You walk down the main street out in the city
see all the girls now they are so pretty
but all their smiling faces are just going to pass you by
it don't make no difference
no matter how hard you try..
Sometimes you get that old lost feeling
Sometimes it hits you when you're feeling down
You been hanging around the alleys hanging around the bars looking for some fun but there is none & there you are...
looking for some action looking for some fun but you are down in the gfutter & you don't get none no no there is nothing left to do.....
How do you feel now that it's all over
your kid dreams all melted under the sun
just like a kid take a trip down to the sea
I am struck out in the middle
with nothing left to say
Sometimes you get that old lost feeling
Sometimes it hits you when you're feeling down

It ain't too easy being a young man
Going round in circles, honey, all the time
You've played their game now for so long can't see
What in the world are they trying to do to me?
Sometimes you get that old lost feeling
Sometimes it hits you when you're feeling down
It's that old feeling, honey, brings you down
I say it makes you crawl...
You walk down the main street out in the city
See all the girls now they're so pretty
But all their smiling faces, yeah are gonna pass you by
It don't make no difference no matter how hard you try
Sometimes you get that old lost feeling
Sometimes it hits you when you're feeling down
It's that old feeling, honey, brings you down
I say it makes you crawl...
Ya hangin' 'round in alleys, ya hangin' 'round in bars
Just looking for some fun but you don't get none and there you are...
Looking for some action looking for some fun but you are down in the gutter
And you don't get none, oh no, just nothing left to do at night, yeah
How do you feel now that it's all over
Your games all melted under the sun
Just like a kid, take a trip down to the sea
Stuck out in the middle and there's just nothing left to say
But, sometimes you get that old lost feeling
Sometimes it hits you when you're feeling down
It's that old feeling, honey, brings you down
I say it makes you crawl...
Yeah.

I always loved the way they kept the garage feel along with the punk energy and the melodic pop sensibility.We were a bit spoiled in the Seventies.

I still consider seeing Chris and The Saints in a small club in Pittsburgh back in 1987 as one of, if not THE, best concerts I have ever seen. Twenty one people (I counted). Set was great. "Messin' With The Kid" was the highlight. Went backstage with my WTCS passes. Chris asked me: "What just happened out there?" I told him that 21 people just experienced one of the greatest concerts they will ever see! Having been in radio for 36 years now, I still consider Chris Bailey my favorite rock star that I have ever personally met...

Great anecdote mate. It's those moments that keep us still as interested as ever in music old and new (I'm nearly 50). Heading along this evening to a small club in Sydney's inner west to see The Aints - a band fronted by Ed Kuepper doing a bunch of stuff off the 1st 3 Saints albums. Should be a treat but yeah - would have been killer if Chris was fronting.

they had long hair . dressed in jumpers and slacks so uncool they were cool. the best band ever. not about the image it's about the music..

TommyTwobats

@Optimistic Whovian Not what I heard. In the UK they were shunned fir their bad style....long hair etc., hippy hang over stuff...

Optimistic Whovian

That's what made these guys cool especially Bill, they were even more punk than The Pistols cos they refused to dress in the "uniform" of safety pins and mohawks, they were just themselves, the music was what they were about and yet everyone knows The Pistols and nobody knows The Saints, its tragic.

StationDead96

jall punk rock from late 70s to mid early 80s was good.

Pam Byrne

USA had The Ramones, UK had The Sex Pistols, we had The Saints. All great bands.
