"Go Out And Get 'Em Boy!"

[ from the album "Tommy" (1988) ]

Lyrics

You were a survivor after all
You never even called
I didn't expect you to

Now, oh there's such a lot you've done
And you're only twenty-one
Yes, you're only twenty-one

Oh
Oh there's just something
Something I noticed
That there's a whole world out there but it's shrinking fast
You want to take it all and make it last forever
Or maybe just a lifetime

Now, oh you've gone to fly the flag
From some pinprick on the map
Oh won't you ever bring it back?

Tonight when you hold her in your arms
And you prove that you're a man
Oh well I hope she understands

Oh
Oh there's just something
Something I noticed
That there's a whole world out there but it's shrinking fast
You want to take it all and make it last forever
Or maybe just a lifetime
Maybe just a lifetime

Oh some things just don't ever go away
Some things you know are just here to stay
And in a golden field there is a little girl left with a Union Jack
And there's a price to pay no matter what you say, there is no going back today
And if we're worlds apart then I've still got a heart, can you imagine that?
"Another wasted day" yes I can hear you say, but I'm afraid
It means much more to me than that
