The Silents Were Golden

 

Hey John ….. It’s been a long long time

Since the heydays, when the talkies were still new

You hit the peak then….. Didn’t speak then

But your message got through

 

Hey John ….. It’s been a long long time

Since the headlines, you and Garbo up in lights

Halcyon days then….. Made the grade then

Life was golden and new

 

Chorus:

The silents were golden

The silents were gold

The silents were golden….. Pure pure gold

The silents were golden

The silents were gold

The silents were golden….. Pure pure gold

 

Hey John ….. It’s been a long long time

Since the high times, when the spotlight fell on you

You were the best then….. Never guessed then

That the silents were through

 

Bridge:

You rose so high…..Burnt so bright

A new sensation ….. Overnight

Lived life fast…. Lived life hard

Died so young….. Of a broken heart

 

Hey John ….. It’s been a long long time

Since the high times, when the spotlight fell on you

You were the best then….. Never guessed then

That the silents were through

 

Chorus:

The silents were golden

The silents were gold

The silents were golden….. Pure pure gold

The silents were golden

The silents were gold

The silents were golden….. Pure pure gold

 

Hey John

Hey John

Hey John
