Faces (sometimes erroneously known as The Faces) are an English rock band formed in 1969 by members of the Small Faces after Steve Marriott left that group to form Humble Pie. The remaining Small Faces - Ian McLagan (keyboards), Ronnie Lane (bass), and Kenney Jones (drums & percussion) - were joined by Ronnie Wood (guitar) and Rod Stewart (lead vocals), both from The Jeff Beck Group, and the new line-up was renamed Faces. more »

Now a country boy named shorty
And a city boy named dan
Had to prove who could run the fastest
To wed miss lucy's hand

Now dan had all the money
And he also had the looks
But shorty musta had that something boys
That can't be found in books

Cut across shorty, shorty, cut across
That's what miss lucy said
Cut across shorty, shorty, cut across
You know it's you that I want to wed

Wait a minute
Now dan had been in training
About a week before the race
He made up his mind old shorty

Would end in second place
You know dan with his long legs flying
He left shorty far behind
Shorty heard him holler out

Miss lucy that you'll soon be mine
Cut across shorty ... but shorty wasn't worried
There was a smile upon his face
'Cause old lucy had fixed the race

And just like that old story
About the turtle and the hare
You know that thing
When danny crossed over the finish line

He found shorty waiting there
Cut across shorty ...
It's you that I want to wed, no no
And oh lord it's you I want to wed
It's you that I want to wed
