Early Morning Cold Taxi (Dave "Cy" Langston/Roger Daltrey) Gowmonk, Inc. (BMI)

[actually composed by Dave "Cy" Langston only. He and Roger were attempting to become a song-writing team at the time and agreed to post all their compositions as joint authorship, ala Lennon/McCartney. Previously Cy had left his job heading up the band Cyrano and The Bergeracs to become The Who's first roadie. Later he worked with John Entwistle on most of his solo albums and the Who records that were under John's oversight.]

Recorded at CBS Studios, London May 1967.
Previously released on Thirty Years of Maximum R&B.

3:36, it's cold, I know I'm growing old,
With life's best side on the downward slope,
It's in my own hands, I know I'll cope,
My girl's with me and all my friends can see.

Here I am again,
Early morning cold taxi.
Early morning cold taxi.

Done it before, do it again,
Know from experience it's not in vain,
She's the best I've had, I cannot see, what someone else can do to me.
It's a long way home but love's so warm, you'll see.

Here I am again,
Early morning cold taxi.
Early morning cold taxi.

Early morning cold taxi,
Each time I do it, I feel so down and out,
Early morning cold taxi,
'though my mind thinks strange I'll keep on, no doubt.

3:36, it's cold, I know I'm growing old,
One day we'll be wed,
This I know for it's what she said,
Then no more will my mind be uneasy.

Early morning cold taxi,
Each time I do it, I feel so down and out,
Early morning cold taxi,
'though my mind thinks strange I'll keep on, no doubt.

3:36, it's cold, I know I'm growing old,
One day we'll be wed,
This I know for it's what she said,
Then no more will my mind be uneasy.

Here I am again,
Early morning cold taxi.
Early morning cold taxi.
