Jefferson Airplane - Come Up The Years (1966)

Rooted in folk and blues music, this psychedelic group was the first (and largest) band to come out of the San Francisco movement in the mid to late ‘60s. They’re mostly remembered for their biggest commercial hits “White Rabbit” and “Somebody to Love.” Both of these psychedelic songs were sung by their second female vocalist, Grace Slick (a former model), who had replaced Signe Toly Anderson and boosted the band into stardom.

This song comes from their first album, Jefferson Airplane Takes Off, before Grace Slick, The Acid Queen, had joined the band.

Lyrics:

I oughta get goin'
I shouldn't stay here and love you
More than I do
'cause you're so much younger than I am
Come up the years
Come up the years
And love me, love me, love me

A younger girl keeps hangin' around
One of the loveliest I've ever found
Blows my mind; stealin' my heart
Somebody help me 'fore I fall apart

I oughta get goin'
I shouldn't stay here and love you
More than I do
'cause you're so much younger than I am
Come up the years
Come up the years
And love me, love me, love me

The things she's doin' keep turnin' me on
And I've been happy to go right along
I know it's time that I said goodbye
I know I can't leave no matter how hard I try

I oughta get goin'
I shouldn't stay here and love you
More than I do
'cause you're so much younger than I am
Come up the years
Come up the years
And love me, love me, love me
Love me, love me, won’t you love me?
