FROM HERE ON IT GOT ROUGH Hildegard Knef - 1969 I came to the world on a cold winter's day Sneezed three times, it must have been hay My Father was livid, he wanted a son I took a look round and said to the Nun "From here on it gets rough" At first I found I had little to do They allowed me to grow, a room with a view But after awhile, they hit on a plan It's time to start learning, the trouble began From here on it got rough At fifteen I'd a dream which I found very clever I wanted to act, Mama said, "No, never!" My Father said, "Out!", I was already gone And followed the call, 'The show must go on!' From here on it got rough My talents got spotted, Producers helped out And gave me those parts where you stand in the crowd When the star became ill, I stepped in like a shot And someone from films signed me up on the spot From here on it got rough I played all the good parts and sometimes the bad And sometimes a figleaf was all that I had And Hollywood said it would certainly die If I didn't come soon, so I went, aye-aye-aye From here on it got rough But now I was famous, I had made it at last Went happily back to the scene of my past I received a big prize, had my name in 'Who's Who' But after a flop, that name was taboo From here on it got rough At first I was hurt, I thought it was wrong Then somebody heard me singing a song I told him I couldn't, but he said, "Yes, you can!" So that's how this latest torment began A change was overdue......From here it's tough on you" (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2006) (Contributed by EUROPEAN OLDIES)
