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
