Manfred Mann was a British beat, rhythm and blues and pop band (with a strong jazz foundation) of the 1960s, named after their South African keyboardist, Manfred Mann, who later led the successful 1970s group Manfred Mann's Earth Band. Manfred Mann were chart regulars in the 1960s, and the first south-of-England-based group to top the US Billboard Hot 100 during the British invasion. more »

Ever seen a blind man cross the road
Try'na make the other side
Ever seen a young girl growing old
Try'na make herself a bride

What becomes of you my love
When they have finally stripped you of
The handbags and the glad rags
That your grand dad had to sweat, so you could buy

Once I was a young man and I thought 
All I had to do was smile
So listen all you young girls
Who bought everything that's in style

Cause once you think you're in, you're out
For you don't mean a thing without
The handbags and the glad rags
That your grand dad had to sweat, so you could buy

Sing a song of sixpence for your sake
And take a bottle full of rye
Four and twenty blackbirds in a cake
And bake 'em all in a pie

They told me you missed school today
So I suggest you just throw away
The handbags and the glad rags
That your grand dad had to sweat, so you could buy

And what becomes of you my love
When they have finally stripped you of
The handbags and the glad rags
That your grand dad had to sweat, so you could buy
