Pretenders

The Pretenders are an English-American rock band formed in Hereford, England in March 1978. The original band comprised initiator and main songwriter Chrissie Hynde (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), James Honeyman-Scott (lead guitar, backing vocals, keyboards), Pete Farndon (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Martin Chambers (drums, backing vocals, percussion). The band has experienced drug-related deaths of the members, and numerous subsequent personnel changes have taken place over the years, with Hynde and Chambers as the remaining original members. more »

Said the wait child magic child work it on out now work it 
The wait child pinball child pool hall child hurts 
The wait child pacing child forth back now hurts 
The wait child neon light late night lights hurt

Oh gonna hurt some child child 
Gonna hurt some whoa my baby

Said the wait child bruised ball child pride slapped child hurts 
The wait child crest felled child tear eyed child hurts 
The wait child bus stop child late come child hurts 
The wait child platform walk idle talk hurts 
Oh gonna hurt some child child 
Gonna hurt some whoa my baby

I said child, child staring into the streetlight 
Messed up child lonely boy tonight 
Kick the wall turn the street and back again 
Oh boy you've been forgotten 

I said the wait child pacing child forth and back now hurts 
The wait child bus stop child late come child hurts 
The wait child pool hall child pin table now hurts 
The wait child magic child work it on out now work it 
Oh gonna hurt some, child, child, child, child, child 
Gonna hurt some whoa my baby
