boys in the attic lyrics – ellen foley

by ellie greenwich, jeff kent and rob parissi

i remember yesterday
it doesn’t seem so far away
the crazy things we used to do. i can still remember
all the boys on friday night
we had to keep ’em out of sight
so we could have our secret rendezvous
i remember the danger
i remember the sign
we were flashing the lights
(’cause)we were ready (we were ready) for the boys.

chorus:
we always had the time to be taking
boys in the attic
boys in the attic
we always found a way to be sneaking
boys in the attic
boys in the attic
boys

oh we were oh so much in love
in our secret room above
i wish those days were back again. i can still remember
the sound of footsteps from below
a sign the boys would have to go
sometimes i close my eyes and just pretend
that i’m back in the attic and i’m back in his arms
i can feel it tonight
oh i’m so ready (i’m so ready) for the boys

repeat chorus

(oh yeah)

every summer friday night
it was magic. it was right
hearts on fire burning free
living out our fantasy
i remember yesterday in our secret hideaway
that was where, that was when
we became the best of friends (remember, remember, remember, remember)
i remember the danger. i remember the sign
we were flashing the lights
oh we were ready (we were ready) for the boys

repeat chorus
we always had the time to be taking
boys in the attic
boys in the attic

i remember the night when i first wanted you (boys boys, boys in the attic)
hiding away in our secret rendezvous (boys boys, boys in the attic)
we were so nervous climbing the stairs (boys boys, boys in the attic)
feeling the heat of our love in the air (boys boys, boys in the attic)
filled with a feeling that i could not explain (boys boys, boys in the attic)
was it tommy or jimmy?
i just can’t remember his name (boys, boys)
boys in the attic
boys
boys
boys in the attic
boys
