Rod Stewart - The Killing Of Georgie Lyrics

  • (Rod Stewart)
  • 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 seventy-five
  • 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 short cut 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 passer-by
  • There ensued a fearful fight
  • screams rang 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
  • Georgie's 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
  • 'Cos youth 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 our breath away
  • Oh Georgie stay, don't go away
  • Georgie please stay you take our breath away
  • Oh Georgie stay, don't go away
  • Georgie, Georgie please stay you take our breath away
  • Oh Georgie stay
