Sally Simpson Lyrics

Outside the house Mr. Simpson announced
That Sally couldn't go to the meeting
He went on cleaning his blue Rolls-Royce
And she ran inside a-weeping

She got to her room and tears splashed the picture
Of her new messiah
She picked up a book of her father's life
And threw it on the fire

She knew from the start
Deep down in her heart
That she and Tommy were worlds apart
But her mother said "Never mind
Your part is to be
What you'll be"

The theme of the sermon was
"Come Unto Me And Love Will Find a Way"
So Sally decided to ignore her dad
And sneak out anyway

She spent all afternoon getting ready
And decided she'd try to touch him
Maybe he'd see that she was free
And talk to her this Sunday

She knew from the start
Deep down in her heart
That she and Tommy were worlds apart
But her mother said "Never mind
Your part is to be
What you'll be"

She arrived at six and the place was swinging
To gospel music by nine
Group after group appeared on the stage
And Sally just sat there crying

She bit her nails looking pretty as a picture
Right in the very front row
Then a DJ wearing a blazer with a badge
Went on and said "Here we go!"

The crowd went crazy
As Tommy hit the stage
Little Sally got lost as the police bossed
The crowd back in a rage

Soon the atmosphere was cooler
And Tommy gave a lesson
Sally just had to let him know she loved him
And leapt up on the rostrum

She ran across stage to the spotlit figure
And brushed him on the face
Tommy whirled around as a uniformed man
Threw her off the stage

She knew from the start
Deep down in her heart
That she and Tommy were worlds apart
But her mother said "Never mind
Your part is to be
What you'll be"

Her cheek hit a chair and blood trickled down
Mingling with her tears
Tommy carried on preaching
And his voice filled Sally's ears

She caught his eye, she had to try
But he couldn't see through the lights
Her face was gashed and the ambulance men
Had to carry her out that night

The crowd went crazy
As Tommy left the stage
Little Sally was lost
For the price of a touch
And a gash across her face

Oooooh!

Sixteen stitches put her right and her dad said
"Don't say I didn't warn ya!"
Sally got married to a rock musician
She met in California

Tommy always talks about the day
The disciples all went wild
Sally still carries a scar on her cheek
To remind her of his smile

She knew from the start
Deep down in her heart
That she and Tommy were worlds apart
But her mother said "Never mind
Your part is to be
What you'll be"
