Pa said, "There must be a mistake. How can my son not be straight After all I've said and done for him?" Leavin' home on a Greyhound bus, Cast out by the ones he loves, A victim of these gay days, it seems, Georgie went to New York town, Where he quickly settled down ‘And soon became the toast of the Great White Way. Accepted by Manhattan's elite In all the places that were chic, No party was complete without George. Along the boulevards he'd cruise ‘And all the old queens blew a fuse; Everybody loved Georgie boy. The last time I saw George alive Was in the summer of '75. He said he was in love; I said, "I'm pleased.” George attended the opening night Of another Broadway hype, But split before the final curtain fell. Deciding to take a shortcut home, Arm in arm, they meant no wrong; ‘A gentle breeze blew down Fifth Avenue. Out of a darkened side street came A New Jersey gang with just one aim: ‘To roll some innocent passerby. ‘There ensued a fearful fight; Screams rung out in the night. Georgie's head hit a sidewalk cornerstone, A leather kid, a switchblade knife, He did not intend to take his life; He just pushed his Tuck a little too far that night, ‘The sight of blood dispersed the gang; A crowd gathered, the police came, ‘An ambulance screamed to a helt on Pifty-third and Third, Georgie's life ended there, But I ask, who really cares? George once said to me, and I quote: He said: "Never wait or hesitate. Get in, kid, before it's too lates ‘You may never get another chance, Cause youth's a mask, but it don'r last, Live it long and live it fast.” Georgie was a friend of mine, 32 THE FIRST CUT IS THE DEEPEST Words and Music by CAT STEVENS Slowly, with a beat G T wouldhave giv - en you all__ of my heart, bat there's want you by —— my side just to D c HEH - x000 9 some-one who's torn it a - part.
