0:19:290:19:32

# A towering shadow, so black and so high

0:19:320:19:35

# A white sun burning the earth and the sky. #

0:19:350:19:40

Tommy...

0:20:440:20:45

# Did you ever see the faces of the children?

0:21:130:21:16

# They get so excited

0:21:160:21:19

# Waking up on Christmas morning

0:21:210:21:23

# Hours before the winter sun's ignited

0:21:230:21:27

# They believe in dreams and all they mean

0:21:290:21:31

# Including heaven's generosity

0:21:310:21:35

# Peeping round the door to see what parcels are for free

0:21:370:21:40

# In curiosity

0:21:400:21:43

# And Tommy doesn't know what day it is

0:21:450:21:48

# He doesn't know who Jesus was or what praying is

0:21:480:21:53

# How can he be saved

0:21:530:21:57

# From the eternal grave? #

0:21:570:22:04

Tommy, can you hear me?

Tommy, can you hear me?

0:23:120:23:14

# How can he be saved?

0:23:190:23:25

# Surrounded by his friends He sits so silently and not aware of anything

0:23:270:23:32

# Glazy-eyed, he picks his nose He smiles, he cries He pokes his tongue at everything

0:23:340:23:42

# I believe in love But how can men who've never seen light be enlightened?

0:23:420:23:50

# Only if he's cured Will his spirit's future level ever heighten

0:23:500:23:55

# And Tommy doesn't know what day it is

0:23:570:24:01

# He doesn't know who Jesus was or what praying is

0:24:010:24:05

# How can he be saved From the eternal grave? #

SOUNDTRACK DROWNS SPEECH

1:16:271:16:30

# Outside the house Mr Simpson announced that Sally couldn't go to the meeting

1:16:361:16:41

# He went on cleaning his black Rolls-Royce She ran inside weeping

1:16:411:16:46

# She got to her room and tears splashed the picture of the new Messiah

1:16:481:16:53

# She picked up a book of her father's life And threw it on the fire

1:16:531:16:58

# She knew from the start Deep down in her heart She and Tommy were worlds apart

1:17:001:17:07

# But her mother said, "Never mind, your part is to be what you'll be"

1:17:101:17:17

# The theme of the sermon was "Come unto me, Love will find a way"

1:17:251:17:30

# So Sally decided to ignore her dad and sneak out anyway

1:17:301:17:35

# She spent all afternoon getting ready, decided she'd try to touch him

1:17:351:17:40

# Maybe he'd see that she was free And talk to her this Sunday

1:17:401:17:45

# She knew from the start Deep down in her heart She and Tommy were worlds apart

1:17:501:17:57

# But her mother said, "Never mind, Your part is to be what you'll be"

1:17:591:18:06

# She arrived at six and the place was swinging to gospel music by nine

1:18:171:18:22

# Group after group appeared on the stage but Sally just sat there sighing

1:18:221:18:27

# She bit her nails, looking pretty as a picture Right in the very front row

1:18:271:18:32

# One of the faithful came on stage and shouted

1:18:321:18:37

# Here we go!

1:18:351:18:37

# The crowd went crazy As Tommy hit the stage!

1:18:391:18:45

# Little Sally got lost as the police bossed the crowd back in a rage

1:18:451:18:50

# Your happy welcome is like a favour I must now return

1:18:541:18:59

# The darkness of my childhood passed And flames of love now burn

1:18:591:19:03

# The pinball game I play so well Reflects a way of life

1:19:031:19:08

# This meeting's just another game Let's play to win tonight

1:19:081:19:14

# She knew from the start Deep down in her heart She and Tommy were worlds apart

1:19:161:19:23

# But her mother said, "Never mind, your part is to be what you'll be"

1:19:251:19:33

# Her cheek hit a chair and blood trickled down Mingling with her tears

1:19:401:19:45

# Try to walk the path I walked - never mind the pain and fear

1:19:451:19:50

# Each one of you has freedom in your heart without my grace

1:19:501:19:55

# Let me see you raise your hands See joy upon your face

1:19:551:20:01

# The crowd went crazy As Tommy left the stage

1:20:031:20:08

# Little Sally was lost for the price of a touch and a gash across her face

1:20:081:20:13

# Her pretty face

1:20:131:20:16

# Sixteen stitches put her right and her dad said "Don't say I didn't warn you"

1:20:161:20:22

# Sally got married to a rock musician who came from California

1:20:221:20:28

# Tommy always talks about the day The disciples all went wild

1:20:321:20:37

# Sally still carries a scar on her cheek To remind her of his smile

1:20:371:20:43

# She knew from the start Deep down in her heart She and Tommy were worlds apart

1:20:451:20:51

# But her mother said, "Never mind, your part is to be what you'll be". #

1:20:531:21:00

# While Tommy flies, the world is turning

1:21:441:21:48

# Life goes on for you and me

1:21:481:21:53

# Our chief concern is money earning Why can't someone set us free?

Ken Russell's flamboyant treatment of The Who's rock opera about a deaf, dumb and blind boy who develops an extraordinary ability at pinball.

Under his sinister stepfather's influence, he achieves fame and a cult following, but his almost messianic status also spells the beginning of his destruction.

Featuring musical contributions from a host of rock stars including Elton John, Eric Clapton and Tina Turner.
