[request] that song that goes "back when we were liiiii


i heard a live recording of this amazing song that went "back when we were little, he lived up the upper west side, and neeeever came down town unless he had a ride"

its about an old friend you know is an big rockstar, but "back in school, i told him what was cool"

the name is unknown though

I have no idea. I thought it may have been Back When I Was Four, for a second! Sounds like an ace song, though...

No, its not back when I was four, I think it's a jack lewis song. I've heard it on one of the many shows I've found on this wonderful site.
I shall find out...

Ok, I've found it, it's track 12 on the '2005.10.20 - Point Ephémère, Paris' show.
I'll write up the lyrics this evening.

I love this song too.

The song is called "unisef box", it can be great if someone put the lyrics up, and it's a Jack song.

I spent too much time
In the little bookstore
Reading all their magazines
Sitting on the dirty floor
Good deeds, need to be done
I had to start the door to door
Well, art and music
What's it all good for?

Spare some change
Just one penny
My unisef box is filled by 9 o clock
I started putting pennys down into my socks
By 10 fifteen
I'd made it out clean

150 bucks gets my name on a plaque
But then I know I know I just want it all back
3 grand could help save this man
And win me a trip to some far land

I took a coffee with my rockstar friend
I hadn't seen him since I don't know when
He said I was the inspiration
For his 49th creation

My jealousy began to grow and grow
He said I should come and see him tomorrow
I said "what what what? have you got a show?"
He was playing tomorrow night at the Apollo

Back when we were little
He lived on the upper west side
Never came downtown unless
Unless...

Back when we were little
He lived on the upper west side
Never came downtown
Unless he had a ride
(unless he had a ride)

The next day I was back on the bookstore floor
Magazines were spread everywhere
My dirty knees were getting pretty sore

Well there on the cover
Was my rockstar pall
Oh, it reminded me I was late for his show at the Apollo

Well you know, I ran through the streets
I made it there alive
I ran and ran to 125
At the box office, puffing for air,
My name wasn't on the guestlist anywhere

I started screaming
I started cussing
I cussed and screamed till they let me in
Back in school, I tought him what was cool
Now all these motherfuckers wanna kiss this fool

I thought I'd ask him for his autograph
I could sell it on eBay yeah, you do the math
I couldn't find a pen I started to cry
My friend look at me and he asked me why.

He said "hey hey buddy, whats so wrong?"
I picked up his guitar and sang him a song
He threw 3 grand into my hand
And now I'm chilling in a distant land!!!


I love this song.
