 Outside the house Mr. Simpson announced
That Sally couldn't go to the meeting.
He went on cleaning his blue Rolls Royce,
And she ran inside a-weeping.
She got to her room and tears splashed the picture
 Of her new messiah.
She picked up a book of her father's life and
 Threw it on the fire.             

She knew from the start, deep down in her heart
That she and Tommy were worlds apart.                    
But her mother said, "Never mind, your part is to
 Be what you'll be."        

The theme of the sermon was "Come unto me and love will find a way."
So Sally decided to ignore her dad and sneak out anyway.
She spent all afternoon getting ready and decided she'd try to touch him.
Maybe he'd see that she was free and talk to her this Sunday.

She arrived at six and the place was swingin' to gospel music by nine.
Group after group appeared on the stage and Sally just sat there cryin'.
She bit her nails looking pretty as a picture right in the very front row.
Then a D.J. wearin' a blazer with a badge ran on and said, "Here we go!"


The crowd went crazy as Tommy hit the stage.
Little Sally got lost as the police bossed the
 Crowd back in a rage.                 

Soon the atmosphere was cooler and Tommy gave a lesson.
Sally just had to let him know she loved him and leapt up on the rostrum.
She ran across the stage to the spotlit figure and brushed him on the face.
Tommy whirled round as a uniformed man threw her off the stage.

 Repeat CBORUS

Her cheek hit a chair and blood trickled down, mingling with her tears.
Tommy carried on preaching and his voice filled Sally's ears.
She caught his eye. She had to try, but he couldn't see through the lights.
Her face was gashed and the ambulance men had to carry her out that night.

The crowd went crazy as Tommy left the stage.
Little Sally was lost for the price of a touch and a
 Gash across her face.                  Ooooh.

Sixteen stitches put her right and her dad said, "Don't say I didn't warn ya!"
Sally got married to a rock musician she met in California.
Tommy always talks about the day the disciples all went wild.
Sally still carries a scar on her cheek to remind her of his smile.
