KOOL & THE GANG


Broadway Lyrics

In the beginning,
(every thing was new...city lights, those subway
sounds)
I was a young love
(fell in love with you)
You looked so beautiful
At the matinee
(on broadway)
She threw a kiss my way
(broadway)
I fell in love
(broadway)
Fell in love...with the leading lady, yeah...
Anticipation...
(Ran within my mind,
butterflies were flying high)
After the encore
(would this be the time)
That love would bring us together
But, when the curtain fell
(on broadway)
The theater was an empty shell
(broadway)
Tell me where did she go
(on broadway)
Guess I'll never know, I'll never, never know
So, baby, take it to the stage
So, we can dance
You and I, a virgin romance,
Take it to the stage,
Where love began
My imagination, let's make pretend
(I fell in love - ohh, whooo...)
Well she stole my heart
And I was so young and I didn't understand it
But I waited, and I waited and I waited
To see was she a widow, or out and come around to
marry, yeah...oh yeah
(...broadway)
Anticipation run in on my mind
(...broadway)
What a weight on my mind, my mind
...broadway
On broaday, broadway

My interpretation of these lyrics is he fell in love with a woman who never loved him. He was serious but she ultimately was playing games. He sings about how naive he is to the ways of love("I was so young but I didn't understand it"). the refrain indicates that he knows she's not serious but he'll take what he can get("My imagination, lets make pretend I fell in love") At the end of the song it seems as though he holds on for a long time ("But I waited, and I waited and I waited to see....and come around to marry")....I LOVE this song. I especially love the first verse where he describes the state of bliss he's in...
