Songinfo

"Look Through Any Window" is a song by the British beat group The Hollies. Written by songwriters Graham Gouldman and Charles Silverman, it features a distinctive 12-string guitar riff, soaring harmonies and Bobby Elliott’s explosive drumming. They also recorded a version in French (titled "Regardez par des fenêtres") that was not officially released at the time but was included on the 1988 compilation Rarities. The B-side, "So Lonely", later included on Hollies and Hear! Here!, was recorded by the Everly Brothers and released in July 1966 on their Two Yanks in England album.
 
 

Bruce on the artist

Lyrics


Look through any window, yeah
What do you see?
Smiling faces all around,
Rushing through the busy town.
Where do they go?
Moving on their way,
Walking down highways and the by-ways
Where do they go?
Moving on their way,
People with their shy ways and their sly ways
Oh, you can see the little children all around.
Oh, you can see the little ladies in their gowns, when you
Look through any window, yeah,
Any time of day
See the drivers on the roads
Pulling down their heavy loads
Where do they go?
Moving on their way,
Driving down highways and the byways
Where do they go?
Moving on their way,
Drivers with their shy ways and their sly ways
Oh, you can see the little children all around.
Oh, you can see the little ladies in their gowns, when you
Look through any window, yeah,
What do you see?
Smiling faces all around,
Rushing through the busy town.
Where do they go?
Moving on their way
Moving on their way
Moving on their way
