Concrete Blonde - Jenny I Read Lyrics




Jenny I read something you said about
Rock and roll and life and death
Ah, Jenny I read they carried you home
Broken, beaten all alone

Oh, Jenny you said
Jenny you thought
Give them all that they want
Everything that you got
Oh, Jenny my dear
It's a wicked city
Once you're young, stupid and pretty

And all the angry young boys (and all the angry young girls)
They're making angry loud noises (kicking back at the world)
And all the angry young boys (and all the angry young girls)

Jenny they cried
Jenny they screamed
Your picture in every magazine
Yeah, ya wanted it all
But the American dream was nothing to write home about

She was the next big thing
And the telephone was ringing all of the time
You were wined and dined every night
Then one day it was over
And where are you now they wonder

And all the angry young boys (and all the angry young girls)
They're making angry loud noises (kicking back at the the world)
And all the angry young boys (and all the angry young girls)

Superstar, that's what you are

And all the angry young boys (and all the angry young girls)
They're making angry loud noises (kicking back at the the world)
And all the angry young boys (and all the angry young girls)

Behind their, their fingers
Eyes aside
In sharp little whispers
They say it's her
It is her
What happened to her
She knows this
And she smiles

She doesn't look anything
Anything like her pictures
She used to be
She used to be
She used to be

But she knows this and she smiles
For she has miles and miles of memories all to herself
Everything in between then and now
And all her images of everything in between now and then
And all they have are pictures
Pictures

    Man, thanks for posting this, and the lyrics on the video were the cherry on the cake. This song is absolutely magic. Part of my life. Cheers!

  4. Marc Britt

    I have to hear her at least once a day, for the past twenty years.

  5. Astro Pillars

    This is by far one of the most amazing songs ever! Deep, dark, beautiful, emotional, haunting truly moving. Guitar work blows my mind I love Mankey's guitar tone truly original. I miss music this deep!

    Paulo Rocka

    Indeed, these guitars phrases are from another world. Awesome!!!

    Couldn't have said it better myself!

  11. Puppy Charms

    This song is magic.

    1:00 "They want you young and stupid and pretty." 4:03 "In sharp WINDY whispers..."

    Pizall

    The lyrics are what they are.

    Puppy Charms

    Paul Whitfield That link was an acoustic aka unplugged version MANY YEARS later. Almost all artists alter a verse or two when live... that doesn't mean an alteration is the orig verse. Everyone knows this but you?

    Pizall

    The lyrics are what they are.

    Puppy Charms

    Paul Whitfield I get it. My brother is autistic. We used to have the same arguments. The fact is when bands sing live they often change lyrics. What was posted here was their own original lyrics... You can search that online anytime. When they alter lyrics while performing live... it's known as freedom of expression. That doesn't make this wrong. This makes this the original lyrics.

    Pizall

    no they are wrong where I noted.
