The Who

"Substitute (Live At San Francisco Civic Auditorium 1971)"

[Verse 1]
You think we look pretty good together
You think my shoes are made of leather
I'm a substitute for another guy
I look pretty tall but my heels are high
The simple things you see are all complicated
I look bloody young, but I'm just back dated, yeah

[Chorus]
Substitute your lies for fact
I can see right through your plastic mac
I look all white, but my dad was black
My fine looking suit is really made out of sack

[Verse 2]
I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth
The north side of my town faced east, and the east was facing south
And now you dare to look me in the eye
Those crocodile tears are what you cry
It's a genuine problem but, you won't try
To work it out at all you just pass it by, pass it by

[Bridge]
Substitute me for him
Substitute my coke for gin
Substitute you for my mom
At least I'll get my washing done...

[Chorus]
Substitute your lies for fact
I can see right through your plastic mac
I look all white, but my dad was black
My fine looking suit is really made out of sack
