"I Was Eleven" as written by and Eric Faulkner....
When I started out the band
I wasn't even a teenage man
I was young, so young
I was eleven.

You should have seen us standing by the gear
And the funny clothes we'd wear
But I was young, so young
I was eleven.
You should have seen us with our phony phonogram
Playing records by the score of other bands
We had started out to make it big
You should have seen our first gig
I was eleven
I was eleven.

Now there was all of us at school
And we were fighting every rule
We were young and we won
We were eleven.

And so the band began to play
And we were playing every day
We were young, so young
I was eleven.

And so soon we got a PA and what a day
And the drummer got his drums so he could play
We had started out to make it big
Mmm, you should have seen our first gig
I was eleven
I was eleven.

Oh, yes!

I was eleven
I was eleven.
