"Bell Boy" as written by and Pete Townshend....
The beach is a place where a man can feel
He's the only soul in the world that's real,
Well I see a face coming through the haze,
I remember him from those crazy days.

Ain't you the guy who used to set the paces
Riding up in front of a hundred faces,
I don't suppose you would remember me,
But I used to follow you back in '63.

I've got a good job
And I'm newly born.
You should see me dressed up in my uniform.
I work in hotel, all gilt and flash.
Remember the gaff where the doors we smashed?

Bell Boy! I got to get running now.
Bell Boy! Keep my lip buttoned down.
Bell Boy! Carry this baggage out.
Bell Boy! Always running at someone's bleedin' heel.
You know how I feel, always running at someone's heel.

Some nights I still sleep on the beach.
Remember when stars were in reach.
I wander in early to work,
Spend my day licking boots for my perks.

The beach is a place where a man can feel
He's the only soul in the world that's real.
Well I see a face coming through the haze,
I remember him from those crazy days.

Ain't you the guy who used to set the paces
Riding up in front of a hundred faces,
I don't suppose you would remember me,
But I used to follow you back in '63.

People often change
But when I look in your eyes,
You could learn a lot from
A life like mine.
The secret to me
Isn't flown like a flag
I carry it behind
This bleedin little badge
What says...

Bell Boy!
I gotta get running now.
Keep my lip buttoned down.
Carry this baggage out.
Always running at someones heel.
You know how I feel, always running at someones heel.
