1921 Lyrics - The Who

Review The Song (6)



Lover:
Got a feeling '21
Is going to be a good year,
Especially if you and me
See it in together.

Father:
So you think '21
Is going to be a good year?
It could be good for me and her,
But you and her - no, never!
I had no reason to be over optimistic,
But somehow, when you smiled
I could brave bad weather...

Mother:
What about the boy?
What about the boy?
sponsored links
What about the boy?
He saw it all!

Mother & Father
(Tommy):
You didn't hear it.
(I heard it)
You didn't see it.
(I saw it)
You won't say nothing to no one
(I won't say nothing to no one)
Never in your life.
(never in my life)
You never heard it.
(I heard it)
Oh, how absurd it all seems
Without any proof.
(How absurd it all seems without any proof)
You didn't hear it.
(I heard it)
You didn't see it.
(I saw it)
You never heard it - not a word of it!
(I heard it - every word of it)
You won't say nothing to no one,
(I won't say nothing to no one)
Never tell a soul
What you know is the truth.
(Never tell a soul
What I know is the truth)

Father:

Got a feeling '21
Is going to be a good year,
Especially if you and me
See it in together.
Got a feeling '21
Is going to be a good year,
Especially if you and me
See it in together.
I had no reason to be over-optimistic,
But somehow, when you smiled, I could brave bad weather...

Mother:

What about the boy...?

Mix up: Notice the father gets cut off, and plus: DO YOU HONESTLY THINK THAT A FATHER, LET ALONE A MOTHER WOULD TRY ANY OF THE "CURES"
question: Roger IS Tommy, and he sings the parenthesized lyrics.



Tommy Plotline - 1921 | Reviewer: Mike | 2/1/09

Four years after Captain Walker goes missing, he returns home and discovers that his wife has found a new lover. Captain Walker confronts the two and kills the lover. Tommy witnesses this through his mirror. To cover up the crime, Tommy's parents tell Tommy that he didn't see it, didn't hear it, and he will say "nothing to no one ever in [his] life". A traumatized Tommy becomes deaf, dumb, and blind.

(In the film version of Tommy, the plot is changed and Captain Walker is killed by the lover during the confrontation.)



roger lyrics | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/7/08

i think that roger says something like

"i heard it
i saw it
i won't say nothing to no-one
Ever in my life.
i heard it.
Oh, how absurd it all seems
Without any proof.
i heard it.
i saw it.
i heard it - every word of it!
i won't say nothing to no-one,
Never tell a soul
What i know is the Truth."

i know ,that question was asked a year ago, but it is for the people like me, that finds it funny.






question | Reviewer: cory | 11/11/07

while they are singing you didn't see it you didn't hear it you can hear Roger singing with Pete but he is saying something different, what tommy is saying.
can anyone post what he is saying please (= ?



Re: Mix Up? | Reviewer: Richard | 6/15/07

I think the lover is killed on the album and the father in the movie. I could be wrong, though.



Mix Up? | Reviewer: Mike | 5/25/07

you might have mixed up the real father, and the lover. Cause if i can remeber i think that they kill the father, not the lover.
