The real philosophs...

Here are some - I think - briliant lyrics, that striked my ear recently. From Rod Steward's "Oh la la" which, some may know it from the Irish Meteor TV commercials and which was also covered by some others...
When I read these lyric then, I just thought "Yes, that's exactly how it is" (or actually, I guess I was thinking "Is Halt Mal Echt So" ;) but never mind about that). That's exactly how life can treat everyone (not only guys!) and it's one more good example for the statement, that song writers are the real philosoph's of this world. And that just because they tell the sheer, blank truth......


Poor old grandad
I laughed at all his words,
I thought he was a bitter man
(When) He spoke of women's ways.
They'll trap you, and use you
And before you ever know;
For love is blind and you're far too kind,
don't ever let it show.

I wish - that - I knew what I know now
when I was younger
I wish - that - I knew what I know now
when I was stronger.

The Can-Can's such a pretty show
it steals your heart away
The backstage's back on earth again
the dressing rooms are great.
They come on strong and it ain't too long
for to make ya' feel a man.
But love is blind and ya soon will find
you're just a boy again.

I wish - that - I knew what I know now
when I was younger
I wish - that - I knew what I know now
when I was stronger.

When you want her lips, you get her cheek
makes you wonder where ya are.
If you want some more then
she's fast asleep,
leaves you twinklin' with the stars.
Poor young grandson, there's
nothing I can say,
you'll have to learn just like me,
and that's the hardest way.
