She said, she said

Asked a girl what she wanted to be
She said baby, can’t you see
I wanna be famous,
A star of the screen

This makes me feel
Like I’ve never been born
Like we’re fast-forwarding to the past
Like it’s the 1960’s
Again and already

It was 20 years ago today,
Sgt Pepper taught the band to play

This makes me feel like
We’re back in the 80’s,
And I was a (not so) little girl
Who loved videogames
And she said:

You’re gonna make mistakes
You’re young
Come on, baby, play me something
Like “Here Comes the Sun”

Good morning, good morning
Back to the future
This is the 21st century
And I’m almost 30

I told that girl
That my prospects were good
And she said baby, it’s understood
Working for peanuts is all very fine
But I can show you a better time:

The farther one travels
The less one knows
Working for peanuts is all very fine
But here comes the sun

Life is very short and there’s no time
For fussing and fighting, my friend
You say yes, I say no,
But we can work it out

So come on, baby, play me something
While my guitar gently weeps
You’re gonna make mistakes, you’re young
But don’t you know it’s gonna be all right?
