Paroles officielles de la chanson "The Killing Of Georgie (Parts 1 And 2)"

In these days of changing ways,
So called liberated days,
A story comes to mind of a friend of mine.

Georgie boy was gay, I guess,
Nothin' more or nothin' less.
The kindest guy I ever knew.

His mother's tears fell in vain
The afternoon George tried to explain
That he needed love like all the rest.

Pa said, "There must be a mistake.
How can my son not be straight
After all I've said and done for him?"

Leavin' home on a Greyhound bus,
Cast out by the ones he loves,
A victim of these gay days it seems.

Georgie went to New York town
Where he quickly settled down
And soon became the toast of the Great White Way.

Accepted by Manhattan's elite
In all the places that were chic,
No party was complete without George.

Along the boulevards he'd cruise
And all the old queens blew a fuse;
Everybody loved Georgie boy.

The last time I saw George alive
Was in the summer of '75.
He said he was in love; I said, "I'm pleased."

George attended the opening night
Of another Broadway hype,
But split before the final curtain fell.

Deciding to take a shortcut home,
Arm in arm, they meant no wrong;
A gentle breeze blew down Fifth Avenue.

Out of a darkened side street came
A New Jersey gang with just one aim:
To roll some innocent passerby.

There ensued a fearful fight;
Screams rung out in the night.
Georgie's head hit a sidewalk cornerstone.

A leather kid, a switchblade knife,
He did not intend to take his life;
He just pushed his luck a little too far that night.

The sight of blood dispersed the gang;
A crowd gathered, the police came,
An ambulance screamed to a halt on Fifty-third and Third.

Georgies' life ended there
But I ask, who really cares?
George once said to me, and I quote:

He said: "Never wait or hesitate.
Get in, kid, before it's too late;
You may never get another chance,
Cause youth's a mask, but it don't last.
Live it long and live it fast."
Georgie was a friend of mine.

Oh, Georgie, stay; don't go away.
Georgie, please stay; you take my breath away.
Oh, Georgie, stay; don't go away.
Georgie, please stay; you take my breath away.
Oh Georgie stay, don't go away
Georgie, Georgie please stay you take our breath away
Oh Georgie stay
