My QPR song. West London Boys

Post by Askwith » Sun Jan 08, 2017 7:49 pm

I wanted to write a song about The R's.

I wanted to avoid the usual cliched "we are the greatest team the world has ever seen" type song.

I ended up reminiscing about growing up in West London and attending games and tried to describe the events and emotions.

It's kind of difficult.

Let me know what you think.

Love that Steve. Shame the sound quality makes the vocals hard to make out at times.

I'd say this is defo QPR related, so ought to be in the Rs forum. See if DG will move it or maybe put a link there. I suspect you'll get lots more views that way :)

Hmm... The vocals sound clear enough on my system mind you they are studio speakers.

If it helps, here are the lyrics.

Walking into town by the traffic on the great west road
Sounds and the smells of the city fill my senses
Hopping on the back of a 117 bus
Alleyways neatly trimmed hedges, walls and fences

Birds singing. Church bells ringing
Sensory assault has left me spinning

Coz we were the West London boys
Heading to the ground on the underground train
To stand behind the wall of noise
Just to hear their voices ringing out again
The West London boys

Sitting in the corner of coffee bar an ice cream float
Sounds drifting over the street from the record store
Push my plate across the formica, grab my hat and coat
Pile into Johnny’s motor on the ground floor

Stood waiting. By the station.
Atmosphere electric with anticipation

Coz we were the West London boys
Heading to the ground on the underground train
To stand behind the wall of noise
Just to hear their voices ringing out again
The West London boys

Sunset over the Westway. Roar of traffic overhead
Smoking fags in the doorway
Terry sticks his porkpie hat back on his head

Everyone's converging on Loftus Road in the sunshine
Buy myself a program and a burger from the van
BBC building towering up to the skyline
Drop a few coins in the bowl for the newspaperman

Turnstiles. Sat in the aisles
Blue and white hoops stretching out for miles

Coz we were the West London boys
Heading to the ground on the underground train
To stand behind the wall of noise
Just to hear their voices ringing out
Voices ringing out
West London boys
Heading to the ground on the underground train
To stand behind the wall of noise
Just to hear their voices ringing out again
The West London boys

Great work Askwith. I love hearing talent and even more when it supports the R's
