J. Geils Band, The - Centerfold Lyrics




Come on

Does she walk? Does she talk?
Does she come complete?
My homeroom homeroom angel
Always pulled me from my seat

She was pure like snowflakes
No one could ever stain
The memory of my angel
Could never cause me pain

Years go by, I'm lookin' through a girly magazine
And there's my homeroom angel on the pages in between

My blood runs cold
My memory has just been sold
My angel is the centerfold
(Angel is the centerfold)

My blood runs cold (wooh)
My memory has just been sold
(Angel is the centerfold)

Slipped me notes under the desk
While I was thinkin' about her dress
I was shy, I turned away
Before she caught my eye

I was shakin' in my shoes
Whenever she flashed those baby blues
Something had a hold on me
When angel passed close by

Those soft, fuzzy sweaters
Too magical to touch
To see her in that negligée
Is really just too much

My blood runs cold
Yeah, my memory has just been sold
My angel is the centerfold
(Angel is the centerfold)

My blood runs cold
My memory has just been sold (oh yeah)
(Angel is the centerfold)

(Na, na, na...)

Yeah, now listen
It's okay, I understand
This ain't no Never-Never Land
I hope that when this issue's gone
I'll see you when your clothes are on

Take your car, yes we will
We'll take your car and drive it
We'll take it to a motel room
And take 'em off in private

A part of me has just been ripped
The pages from my mind are stripped
Oh no, I can't deny it
Oh yeah, I guess I gotta buy it

My blood runs cold
My memory has just been sold
My angel is the centerfold
(Angel is the centerfold)

My blood runs cold (wooh)
My memory has just been sold
(My angel is the centerfold)

(Na, na, na...)

Alright, alright
1, 2, 3, 4

(Na, na, na...)

My blood runs cold
My memory has just been sold
My angel is the centerfold
Angel is the centerfold

My blood runs cold, oh yeah
My memory has just been sold
My angel is the centerfold
Angel is the centerfold

    Un des greatest hits des Amigos !!!

  6. Michael Stevens

    I hate to disappoint many. However, as a kid I loved this song but listening to it now it seems a bit lame.

  7. Brenton Taylor

    When you notice no one in this band has two right hands.

    Guitarist J. Geils, bassist Danny Klein, and harpist Magic Dick began performing as an acoustic blues trio sometime in the mid-'60s. In 1967, drummer Stephen Jo Bladd and vocalist Peter Wolf joined the group, and the band went electric. Before joining the J. Geils Band, Bladd and Wolf played together in the Boston-based rock revivalist band the Hallucinations. Both musicians shared a love of arcane doo wop, blues, R&B, and rock & roll.

  9. Liam Patrick

    2020 anyone?

  10. Moon Dancer

    J.Giles band was big in the 70's and made a major comeback in the 80's.

  11. Laura Davis

    HELL YES!

  12. KháRảnH Vlog / #1PerAll

    Vietnamese version of Interville used this

  13. Anxious Aesthetics

    Someone linked me this song by giving no other context than, "I played this in DDR, this song fucks," and wow they're right.

  14. Jason Davis

    First, that is not martha quinn that is a urban legend. This was filmed at a former school that was also being used as a dance school. That is where most of the girls came from, but not all. At least 1 of them were model/actress. They found the blonde one years ago, her name is Jill. She says she never knew any of the other girls names. No one that i have heard of. You think someone would say that is my aunt or mother, or neighbor. The idea or inspiration of the song actually came from peter wolf dating a actress in the late 1970's.

  30. Anne Cohen

    Interesting. I read in Wikipedia that the song is based on Peter Wolf’s real life past relationship with a former model named Angel. I wonder why I didn’t figure it out sooner!

  31. Carmem Silvia

    Am starting with the Man In The Mirror... Oh! Wrong song.

    A big hit here in Australia and I remember it well. I was in my first year of high school and this was getting a lot of airplay. Good times and great memories, I wish I could go back but sadly those days will never return. RIP John J. Geils and thank you for the wonderful music.

  37. Dee Harris

    I don't care I still like this song.

    you know, i loved this song. so upbeat and happy, then i figure out what the song is about and it slightly tainted it for me but its still great.


    then i find all the jojo references and its 12 feet under hidden in a nuclear bomb shelter.

    ...I was working for CATV when our state of the art system in Santa Maria California up to 33 yes thirty three channels using something called a Converter Box of instead of the TV tuner channels 2 - 13 VHF. Then we added this new channel called MTV. The sales department gave all the field crews a black baseball jacket with a huge logo on the back. The sixteen of us were looked at like we were the first coming...I Want My MTV...was the battle cry. We were god like (if you were a stoner). This band was one of the original bands to do videos...One of ten bands that had anything to offer for the twenty four hour loop of a dozen videos. Class of 1978 is Great...A.C.Feuerhelm ...(a person can only take so much Cindy Laupper no matter how much fun a girl can have)

  78. aakla

    I always thought it was "Angel in the centerfold"

  79. Steve Joshua

    When MTV was still politically incorrect.

  80. Secorian

    I had this on cassette tape when I was in elementary school (damn I'm old) and years later at our family auto restoration business we worked on J. Geils cars. He was a cool dude - always brought donuts and coffee for the guys.

  85. Eric Westerlund

    Thanks to The J. Geils Band for such an entertaining Pop Music video from around 1980-81. The women school students doing their dance choreography with vocalist Peter Wolf is really funny, and the final seconds of the cheerleader doing her split legs jump and the other cheerleaders doing their one-by-one cartwheels is so funny.
    Happy Thanksgiving Holiday and Cheers!! from Santa Maria, CA., U.S.A.

  88. James Batey

    This was written by the late Tim Wilson, he was in a motel after a show and on the TV was a porno movie with his homeroom angel. He changed to girly magazine cause porno wouldn't work in the song

  90. Crest 3D White Toothpaste

    My friend thought this was a p!nk song.

  91. Steph A

    Why "Centerfold" is borderline stalkerish
    The man in the song is looking through some adult magazines, he opens up the centerfold and stares in pure horror as his highschool crush, whom he refers to as his "angel" the one who he saw as a symbol of purity, is now fully displayed in a dirty magazine. The fluffy sweater that he remembers her wearing is now replaced by sexy lingerie.
    He remembers how perfect and innocent she was.
    He goes back and forth between his (now tarnished) memory, and the harsh reality that lays in front of him. He is completely heartbroken.
    He decides to forgive her as he understands "this ain't no never,-never land." Then continues with the idea that once all this has died down he will have a chance to make her his angel again. He will see her with her clothes on in public- the way he believes it should be. Then go some place to "take them off in private" as her body should be his, and his only.
    Then of course he ends up buying the magazine.
