Put the Money Down Lyrics - The Who

Review The Song (1)



I got lost in the back streets, trying to get here tonight,
The police were asking questions, they took me to the wrong place twice.
I even lost my passport, and I forgot my name and town,
But now I'm here by the water, put the money down.

Before I walk on the water,
Put the money down, down, down,
There are bands killing chickens,
My hero's getting pushed around, 'round, 'round.

I don't know if I trust you as you try to shoot me down,
Before I walk on the water,
Put the money down, down, down,
Put the money down.

It was a beautiful day in Columbus when the fences fell
But the five loaves and the fishes ain't going to be much help,
I got a hungry juggler here who wants to be at the head,
Before he walks the water he wants his bread.

Take a glass of that light brown ale and a purple pill,
If the air don't get you too sure as hell the pill will,
Oh, mommy, mommy, please may I go downtown?

He's gonna walk on the water,
Put the money down,
Put it down, before I walk on the water,
Put the money down, down, down.

There are bands killing chickens,
My hero's getting pushed around, round, round,

I don't know if I trust you as you try to shoot me down,
I'm gonna walk on the water,
Put the money down, down, down, down, down,
Put the money down.
In a tin cup.

no one loves The Who more than me. no way; i'm blubbering up already!...whatever has happened or will happen to me in this lifetime: I'm fulfilled. because WHY? i lived in the era of The Who !...i can put myself back to that neighborhood, a fourteen year old girl, who was AWE STRUCK at first by the SOUND..and then, as i (felt like it) got to "know" them; well, nobody's gonna say anything bad about my boys. this sticks-out to me for some reason: i really liked it "loving" The Who, cause...they were (are) SPECIAL!..not everyone "knew" them like me. and, admittedly, not everyone who knew them liked them. (drove me closer and stronger and happy that they had a brain...but loved to party and...hey, that's me!) okay, i'll say it: (and this is the very best thing my husband EVER said to me. and he said it once.)"Honey, you ARE The Who." oh, my gosh, i swear that added 5 years to the duration of our 16 year marriage. i looked at him, and i knew MY eyes were twinkling,and, honestly, i don't know much else. but i felt that he UNDERSTOOD ME at that very moment...as i understood my peers and mostly, The Who. they said 0UT LOUD what i MEANT to say....i will always love them. they've been "family" to me...for life. and i can't thank them enough for the music. when other bands were saying, "i loved her" ....Pete's saying, "I got lost in the back streets, trying to get here tonight...it's "the attitude" that was so attractive, too. Looking back, music was EVERYTHING to our unimportant lives. Lines were drawn via music. umm, ya liked someone, but they say they like "Boston" as much as I love The Who? No, sorry people. You and I wouldn't have lasted....it was MENTAL, as well as PHYSICAL, AND of course, the MAGIC that was made through they're music....it just never got any better than them. One thing, back then, like 70's we didn't know WHAT we had....i never thought i WOULDN'T see them LIVE yearly? why would i think that? i guess i wish i would have VALUED them more as the precious GIFT they are. thank goodness for video. cause i don't remember the first seven times being main-floor meat. i cant' take anything back. but i wish i wasn't so wasted the time we "won the lottery" and they did an unexpected, one-time only..playing at (i'm NOT positive on location,but it was Detroit) think it was like, Mesonic Temple or something...{help me, fellow fans}i recall folks saying, "wow, that was like having The Who in your living room!" crap!..the guy i went with was nuts about me. and i had too much to drink and the alcohol simply caught up w-me. i do remember bits and pieces of the show. not like when i last saw them, and can tell you the playlist AND what they SAID ....they DON'T DO THAT ANYMORE as to not have to kiss him or something equally stupider than shit...
