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 »

The mid twenty joys around a heart that's black and blue 
Tattooed love boys 
I tore my knees up getting to you 
'Cause I needed 
To find out what the thing was for 
Been reading 
But man the time came to explore

I went apewire 'cause I thought 
Like I'd like it little tease 
But I didn't mean it 
But you mess with the goods doll, honey you gotta pay, yeah

A good time was guaranteed for one and all 
The tattoos did target practice in the hall 
While waiting for their number to get called out 
I, I, I, I found out what the wait was about

I was a good time, yeah, I got pretty good 
At changing tires upstairs bro 
I shot my mouth off and you showed me what that hole was for

Now I see you 
All impressed and half undressed 
You got paint stick all over the scars and lumps and bumps 
Tattooed love boys 
Have got you where I used to lay 
Well ha ha too bad, but you know what they say 
"Stop snivellin', you're gonna make some plastic surgeon a rich man"

Oh, but the prestige and the glory 
Another human interest story 
You are that
