The Gaslight Anthem Once Upon A Time Lyrics

Last updated: 07/22/2012 11:00:00 AM

Once upon a time, when I was in high school
I was in love with you lady, but you treated me so cool
I was drivin' a Chevy 72, it had 4 on the floor, girl
A hundred twenty, it would do

And I remember Marvin Gaye
Singin' "What's Goin' On?"

And there was a war, baby, somewhere across the sea
I don't want to go fight, girl, cause you really love me
I remember Martin Luther King
Lord, he was the man, babe, that gave us all a dream

And I remember Marvin Gaye
Singin' "What's Goin' On?"
I don't play with my love, oh
And I remember Marvin Gaye
Singin' "What's Goin' On?"

They used to have sweet music in the park
Lord, up in Monterey, straight down to melody bar
You used to wear, girl, them high pants
And when you strolled down the hall, all the boys wanted a chance

And I remember Marvin Gaye
Singin' "What's Goin' On?"
I don't play with my love, oh
And I remember Otis Redding
Sittin' at the dock of the bay
But then he went away

And I remember Sam Cooke
Bring it on home to me
From your love I can't be free
I remember Elvis Presley
And them blue suede shoes
Lord, they gave me the blues

I remember Marvin Gaye
Singin' "Let's Get It On"
