It was fucking easy being green

And there, proudly on the movie screen 

A rock and roll transvestite queen

Midnight lips

My first kiss

Susan Saradon’s lovely tits

John and Paul, Glen, Sid and Steve 

And a brand new Elvis stops the TV

Harry Reems gets out of jail

William Jefferson Clinton still don’t inhale

But she let me put my fingers there

Then Nancy slipped off her underwear

'77 /17

A couple hundred nights and Christ, I really loved you Nancy

'77 was like a blur

The Pistols flipped off the whole fucking world

Steamed up car windows radio nights

Policemen and their long flash lights

Bee Gees under winter stars

Not all the way, but really really far

I swore to her that my love was true

And God knows I longed to show her, too.

So I walked hours to her house through streets of snow

Still, Nancy'd never tell me no

Though if she had, well I would have died

What a fucking perfect way to go

'77 /17

Many many many many many nights and

Christ,  I really loved you Nancy

It was '78 when eighteen hit

I was college-bound

I was dumb as shit

The music died at Winterland the fourteenth day

I prayed she wanted me to stay. but she wouldn’t say

God she really made me sad

But to her it looked like I got mad

So one day I just didn't talk to her

And to this day, Nancy ain't never said a word

Sid and his Nancy were a year away

But me, I think I really died that day

I want to go back and learn

How not to love someone in turn

Who lets you kiss 'em at a show

Where every punk that you know knows

'77 /17

Jesus Fucking H. Christ, I really loved you Nancy

Mary  Mother of God, I really loved you Nancy
