Small Faces – Tin Soldier (1967)

Today we have lost Ian McLagan (12 May 1945 – 3 December 2014) the English keyboard instrumentalist, best known as a member of the English Rock bands Small Faces and Faces. He also collaborated with The Rolling Stones and led his own band from the late 1970s.

Here is one of my favourite Small Faces tracks in tribute to Ian R.I.P. Enjoy fm!

Small Faces - Tin Soldier 1967

I’m a little tin soldier
that wants to jump into your fire
you are a look in your eye
a dream passing by in the sky
I don’t understand
all I need is treat me like a man
‘cause I ain’t no child
take me like I am
I got to know that I belong to you
do anything that you want to do
sing any so song that you want me to sing to you
I don’t need no aggravation
I just got to make you
I just got to make you my occupation
I got to know that I belong to you
do anything that you want to do
sing any so song that you want me to sing to you
All I need is your whispered hello
smiles melting the snow
nothing heard
you eyes are deeper than time
say a love that won’t rhyme without words
so now I’ve lost my way
I need help to show me things to say
give me your love before mine fades away
I got to know that I belong to you
do anything that you want to do
sing any so song that you want me to sing to you
oh no no
I just want some reaction
someone to give me satisfaction
all I want to do is stick with you ,’cause I love you
