About Disguises

"Disguises" is a song by English band, The Who, written by guitarist Pete Townshend. It was first released on the group's 1966 extended play Ready Steady Who. It, along with "I'm a Boy" are of the earliest compositions in which Townshend questions gender identity and identity crisis', a prevalent aspect found later in his songwriting. "Disguises" and "I'm a Boy" also marks the first time Kit Lambert received credit as a record producer for the Who, something that had previously been credited to Shel Talmy and Townshend. The thematic concept for the song proved successful and Townshend was subsequently praised by critics. It has since been covered by The Jam as the B-Side for their top-five single "Funeral Pyre" in 1981 and Of Montreal for their 1997 EP The Bird Who Ate the Rabbit's Flower.

I used to know everything about you
But today when I tried to point you out to one of my friends
I picked the wrong girl again
Don't see you in the crowd anymore
I think it's you, but I can't be sure
You're wearing disguises
Occasionally a girl surprises me
When she turns out to be you
Wearing disguises

I don't think you want me to see you ever again
And today I saw you dressed as a flower bed

Last week you had a wig on your head
Directing traffic in the street
And your shoes were too big for your feet
You were wearing disguises
Occasionally a girl surprises me
When she turns out to be you
Wearing disguises

I used to know everything about you
But today when I tried to point you out to one of my friends
I picked the wrong girl again
Don't see you in the crowd anymore
I think it's you, but I can't be sure
You're wearing disguises
Occasionally a girl surprises me
When she turns out to be you
Wearing disguises

Wearing disguises
Wearing disguises
Wearing disguises
Wearing disguises
