Someone's Coming (John Entwistle) Gowmonk, Inc. (BMI)

Backing track recorded in London prior to May 23, 1967 (when John injured a finger punching a wall).
Brass arrangements and vocals recorded at Bradley's Barn, Nashville Aug. 17, 1967.

First released as the B-side of the U.K. single of 'I Can See For Miles.' This was the first time Roger sang lead vocals on a song written by John.

[In the U.S. it was the B-side of "Magic Bus."
John: "'Someone's Coming' was written about when I started going out with my wife, she was fourteen and I was still at school and we had those sort of problems."]

Goodnight baby,
Someone's a-comin', someone's a-comin',
Goodnight baby,
Gotta get a-runnin', gotta get a-runnin'.

Your father doesn't like me,
Told you that you couldn't see me any more,
That's why we meet in secret,
That's why we're hiding here.

Goodnight baby,
Same time tomorrow, same time tomorrow,
Goodnight baby,
See you here tomorrow, see you here tomorrow.

Your mother made you stay in,
When she saw you going out with me,
You'll say you'll take the dog out,
Then you sneak out here to me.

If your parents find you here,
You're gonna get a hiding, gonna get a hiding,
So I'll vanish, disappear,
See you here tomorrow, see you here tomorrow.
