Description
I found the photo above whilst moving house this summer and decided to write a song to cheer up the little lad in the picture, ( which of course is me!). This is just a live guitar vocal one take demo with a second vocal overdub. I just wanted to capture the moment, which was all very cathartic.........got there in the end!!!

Lyrics
Boy in the photograph

Hey now little 60's lad
How are you doing ther?
Stand up straight or you'll get a clout
That's what you've ;earned to fear

Those beautiful dogs
Get all the praise and attention
Don't they look so fine
You just stand there
Pose for the camera
Know your place in the line

All you want is just a little love
How would you know how that feels
All you want is just a little love
Being a child that's art of the deal

Conditioned behaviours bought up like a dog
Learned in your formative years
They've stayed with you all of of your life
The cause of so many tears

I want to tell you that it's gonna get better
But it's going to take a long time

Hey there little 60's lad
I'm sorry you had it so rough
They took care of your physical needs
Nice but so not enough

Hang on in there 60's lad
There's music coming down the road
Sounds and words to help fill the void
Voices to share the load

Stirs my own memories
They took care of your physical needs is true but there's much more to it isn't there?

Part of the deal as you say.

Painful but honest.

Cheers

Dick
