Paul Simon Late In The Evening Lyrics

Last updated: 10/13/2012 11:14:10 AM

The first thing I remember
I was lying In my bed
It couldn't have been no more
Than one or two
I remember there's a radio
Comin' from the room next door
And my mother laughed
The way some ladies do
When it's late in the evening
And the music s seeping through

The next thing I remember
I am walking down the street
I'm feeling all right
I'm with my boys
I'm with my troops, yeah
And down along the avenue
Some guys were shootin pool
And I heard the sound
Of a cappella groups, yeah
Singing late in the evening
And all the girls out on the stoops, yeah

Then I learned to play some lead guitar
I was underage In this funky bar
And I stepped outside to smoke
myself a "J"
And when I came back to the room
Everybody just seemed to move
And I turned my amp up loud and I began
to play
And it was late in the evening
And I blew that room away

The first thing I remember
When you came into my life
I said I'm gonna get that girl
No matter what I do
Well I guess I'd been in love before
And once or twice I been on the floor
But I never loved no one
The way that I loved you
And it was late in the evening
And all the music seeping through

Music to smoke Js by | Reviewer: Gray | 9/30/2007

I've always enjoyed this funky release that reminds me of a New Orleans Mardis Gras. Some quirky lyrics and an eager brass section complement the festive feel. It's great to hear Paul so relaxed yet dynamic and uninhibited on the vocals. I'll bet he smoked himself a J every time he sat down to work on this track. ;-)
