The Beach Boys - Heroes and villains
Tekst: Van Dyke Parks / Muziek: Brian Wilson
(1967)






I’ve been in this town so long that back in the city
I’ve been taken for lost and gone
And unknown for a long, long time



Fell in love years ago
With an innocent girl
From the Spanish and Indian home
Home of the heroes and villains



Once at night Catillian squared the fight
And she was right in the rain of the bullets that eventually brought her down
But she’s still dancing in the night
Unafraid of what a dude’ll do in a town full of heroes and villains



Heroes and villains
Just see what you’ve done



Heroes and villains
Just see what you’ve done



Stand or fall I know there
Shall be peace in the valley
And it’s all an affair
Of my life with the heroes and villains



My children were raised
You know they suddenly rise
They started slow, long ago
Head to toe healthy, weathy and wise



I’ve been in this town so long
So long to the city
I’m fit with the stuff
To ride in the rough
And sunny down snuff I’m alright
By the heroes and



Heroes and villains
Just see what you’ve done



Heroes and villains
Just see what you’ve done
