It Was Late in the Evening...And All The Music's Seeping Through

The first thing I remember, I was lying in my bed 
I couldn't've been no more than one or two 
And I remember there's a radio, coming from the room next door 
My mother laughed the way some ladies' do 

Well it's late in the evening, and the music's seeping through 

The next thing I remember, I am walking down a street 
I'm feeling alright I'm with my boys and with my troops, yeah 
Down along the avenue some guys are shootin' pool 
And I heard the sound of acapella groups, yeah 

Singin' late in the evening, and all the girls out on the stoops, yeah 
[ Lyrics from: ] 
Then I learned to play some lead guitar, I was underage in this funky bar 
And I stepped outside to smoke myself a j 
When I come back to the room, everybody just seemed to move 
And I turned my amp up loud and I began to play 

It was late in the evening, and I blew that room away 

First thing I remember when you came into my life 
I said I wanna get that girl, no matter what I do 
Well I guess I've been in love before and once or twice have been on the floor 
But I've never loved no-one the way that I love you 

And it was late in the evening, and all the music's seeping through

-Paul Simon
