Before I laugh and act like a fool

Bm Bm A A E E
If I swallow anything evil

Put your finger down my throat

Keep me warm, let me wear your coat

About this song

"Behind Blue Eyes" is a song written by Pete Townshend of The Who for his Lifehouse project. It first appeared on The Who's 1971 Who's Next album, along with a number of other remnants from the project. The song is one of The Who's most well known recordings and has been covered by many artists. The lyrics are a first-person lament from a man in the Lifehouse story, variously identified as 'Brick' or 'Jumbo', who is always angry and full of angst because of all the pressure and temptation that surrounds him, and the song was intended to be his "theme song" had the project been successful.
