Outside the house Mr. Simpson announced
That Sally couldn't go to the meeting.
He want on cleaning his blue Rolls Royce
And she ran inside weeping.
She got to her room
And tears splashed the picture of the 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, love will find a way.'
So sally decided to ignore her dad
And sneak out anyway!
She spent all afternoon getting ready
And desided she'd try and touch him.
Maybe he see that she was free
And talk to her this Sunday.

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..."

She arrived at six
And the place was swinging to gospei music by nine.
Group after group appeared on the stage
And Sally just sat there crying.
She bit her nails, looking pretty as a picture
Right in the very front row.
And then a DJ wearing 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!

But soon the atmosphere was cooler
As Tommy gave a lesson.
Sally just had to let him know she loved him
And leapt up on the rostrum!
She ran cross stage to the spotlit figure
And touched him on the face.
Tommy whirled around as a uniformed man
Threw her off the stage

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..."

Her cheek hit a chair
And blood trickled down, mingling with her tears.
Tommy carried on preaching
And his voice filled Sally's ear.
She caught his eye, she had to try
But 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! Oooooh!

Sixteen stitches put her right and her dad said
"Don't say I didn't warm yer."
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.

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..."
