NEW YORK DOLLS
"Seventeen"
feat. Bo Diddley

I was down the street one night
I was only made of light
Saw some kids from the park
They was howlin' the dark
They just wanna fuss and fight

I was only seventeen
Post-conventional
Only seventeen
It was as clear as crystal

That in its wildest dreams
Magic never thought
That it would get done
By the myth it gone slum(?)
All the goddesses and gods you brought

I was seventeen
When I saw it go down
Only seventeen
Back in that lonely town

All them gods and goddesses
Didn't imagine it at all
A race that could and would
Make 'em so temporal
Make 'em seem all rational

Only seventeen
Yet I still understood
I was all that you are
In your neighborhood

Yet here we all stood
Confident and smug, well-viewed.
(?)
(?)
Explodin' all (?)

I was only seventeen
(?)
Only seventeen
And we were pressed at the gills

The limitations of ourselves
That's what we're up against
Tomorrow's sun would sure rise
On a world that transcends
If this stormy night ever ends
If this stormy night ever ends
If this stormy night ever ends
This stormy night ever ends
If this stormy night ever ends
Ever ends
When's it gonna end?
If this stormy night ever ends
