(ian hunter)

When I was just sixteen - I stood waiting for a dream -
At barker street bus station every night
When I tried to get it on - she just looked at me with scorn - my courage
Turned to dust and I took flight

For those looks they seemed to say
You ain’t nuthin’ - go away
You’re just a face in the crowd so I went home and I vowed
I’m gonna be somebody - someday

Her name was irene wilde - oh such beauty for a child
When she started dating boys - I nearly died
For I could not barely stand to see someone hold her hand
I felt I had to crawl away and hide
In my mother’s living room I composed so many tunes
All the same - just a frame - for her nameand just to say
Gonna be somebody - someday

Wild as your name I soon left that country town
I been aroundseen some fameseen some ups and seen some downs
Smile through your shock when you hear your name aloud
It’s that face in the crowd - didn’t dig it - much too proud...

When I was just sixteen I stood waiting for a dream
A barker street bus station non affair
At the time it seemed so sadbut it did not turn out bad
If you hadn’t messed me up I’d still be there
And I think most folks agreea little put-down makes them see
They ain’t no chain - just a link and that’s why you made me think
Gonna be somebody - be somebody - be somebody - someday
