Up the Wooden Hills to Bedfordshire
Small Faces Lyrics


When you're slipping into sleep, that's the time to unwind
Sinking down into the deep, that's the time of no time
When you're slipping into sleep
All the sounds around you seem to have a new meaning
Leave your body behind you with a different feeling
When you're slipping into sleep

The day is night, the night is day
So please out the light as I slip away
Up the wooden hills to Bedfordshire
Up the wooden hills to Bedfordshire

When you're slipping into sleep, there's a world you will find
That's all yours and you can keep, that's the only thing to keep
When you're slipping into sleep
All the sounds around you seem to have a new meaning
Leave your body behind you with a different feeling
When you're slipping into sleep

That's all yours and you can keep, that's the only thing to keep
When you're slipping into sleep
All the sounds around you seem to have a new meaning
Leave your body behind you with a different feeling

The Small Faces were and still are one of my favorite bands. They are so very good. You will not be disappointed to give the Small Faces a listen!

what a nice touch from Ian, he was so essential to their sound...the S.F. could be quite evocative with such a simple pop tune!!

Richard Cain

best Mod band in my opinion - once a Mod always a Mod

I love this charming song, God Bless Ian McLagan

208 Records

So sorry to hear Ian McLagan died yesterday.  Mac was a great soulful player, & an underacted singer & composer.  Have a listen to the beautiful gem, people sometimes forget he wrote this.  He signed a fiver for my mate once......  Cheers Ian x

Happy Celestial Birthday, Mac. A special song, this one.

takes me back to the 1960's, too, but with my dad reminding me to go up those wooden hills to bedfordshire at the end of a long day. The phrase comes from the title of a Vera Lynn song -- 1930 -- must've been millions of kids hearing those words all across England . . .
