Pure and Easy
   ------The Who

There once was a note, pure and easy
Playing so free, like a breath rippling by
The note is eternal, I hear it, it sees me
Forever we blend and forever we die

I listened and I heard music in a word
And words when you played your guitar
The noise that I was hearing was a million people cheering
And a child flew past me riding on a star

As people assemble
Civilization is trying to find a new way to die
But killing is really merely scene changing
All men are bored with other men's lies

I listened and I heard music in a word
And words when you played your guitar
The noise that I was hearing was a million people cheering
And a child flew past me riding in a star

Gas on a hillside, oil in the teacup
Watch all the chords of life lose their joy
Distortion becomes somehow pure in its wildness
The note that began all can also destroy

We all know success when we all find our own dreams
And our love is enough to knock down any wall
And the future's been seen as men try to realize
The simple secret of the note in us all....in us all

I listened and I heard music in a word
And words when you played your guitar
The noise that I was hearing was a million people cheering
And a child flew past me riding in a star

Today is the day when sound curdles mountains
Blowing and flowing each man in its way
Destroying itself in the end with vibration
There's nothing on earth its challenge can take

Except in one note, pure and easy
Playing so free, like a breath rippling by
There once was a note, listen
There once was a note, listen
