About This Song


Was watching the Hail Hail Rock n' Roll Chuck Berry documentary, which is full of wonderful interviews, and got inspired to write a blues number.

That Old Closet

Written by Shaun Thomson

V1a:
I was born a lucky boy
Smart like Socrates
Not been here seventeen years
'Fore I was sent to university

V1b:
The Dean introduced me to Mary
He said she would show me 'round
From her lack of talk and the pace of her walk
Figured I was friend zone bound

V1c:
I followed her down a dark hallway
We stopped at a beat up old door
She turned the key then turned round to me
Said "You sure you sophomore?"

CS1:
Then we got in that old closet
And we made the most of it
Got my masters in love
When I was just seventeen

V2a:
When we got dressed and climbed out
I didn't reveal my age
I figured the only thing she cared about
Was that big ol' smile on her face

V2b:
The next time I saw Mary
She had a pretty blonde by her side
They led me back down that hallway
Whisperin' and gigglin' all the while

V2c:
Now I remembered from last time
To get two in was a squeeze
We had to stay the rest of the day
Working on ways to make three fit in that

CS2:
Old closet
And we made the most of it
Got my masters in love
When I was just seventeen

V3a:
Physics was my favourite class
My teacher was Miss Applegate
My grades were very, very bad
Her legs made it hard to concentrate

V3b:
Now she was a good lady
Not just sexy but sweet
I was the one who took advantage
'Cause I knew round me she was weak

V3c:
She'd sneak me down that hallway
Always careful no one could see
She'd quietly open that creaky door
Lock us in with a half turn of the key

V3d:
With her it was always in the pitch black
She was shy right from the start
I never learned the speed of light
But I learned to see in the dark

CS3:
Down in that old closet
'n I made the most of it
Got my masters in love
When I was just seventeen

Got my masters in love
When I was just seventeen
