Silhouettes Lyrics


Took a walk and passed your house late last night
All the shades were pulled and drawn way down tight
From within, the dim light cast two Silhouettes on the shade
Oh, what a lovely couple they made

Put his arms around your waist, held you tight
Kisses I could almost taste in the night
Wondered why I'm not the guy who's silhouette's on the shade
I couldn't hide the tears in my eyes

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah

Lost control and rang your bell; I was sore
Let me in, or else I'll beat down your door
When two strangers who have been two silhouettes on the shade
Said, to my shock, "You're on the wrong block."

Rushed out to your house with wings on my feet
Loved you like I'd never loved you, my sweet
Vowed that you and I would be two silhouettes on the shade
All of our days, two silhouettes on the shade

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah

Silhouettes
  • This song is about a guy who sees a couple kissing and fooling around. He sees their shadows through a closed curtain, and thinks that it's his girl cheating on him. He gets so upset at what he's watching he bangs on the door, only to find out he has the wrong house. He then rushes to the right house, and together he and his girl make their own shadows when they kiss.
  • This was previously a hit for the Rays (US #3) and later by the Diamonds (US #10, both in 1957).
  • Herman's Hermits lead singer Peter Noone sang on this track, but the other band members didn't play on it. The session musicians brought in were:

    Vic Flick - guitar
    Big Jim Sullivan - guitar
    John Paul Jones - bass (yep, the guy from Led Zeppelin)
    Bobby Graham - drums
    John Carter and Ken Lewis - backing vocals
  • Jimmy Page, who was a session guitarist at the time and went on to form Led Zeppelin, played on this song. In an interview with the Forgotten Hits newsletter, Peter Noone, who was lead singer of Herman's Hermits, addressed the use of outside musicians on their recordings: "The Hermits played on the songs that they played well on. Sometimes other musicians played on tracks, mostly because the band's weakness was our drummer (the nicest guy in the band and therefore irreplaceable) because he had pretty unusual time and was therefore un-overdubbable (my word) so we started using Clem Cattini (Tornadoes) and Jim Page (Yardbirds), John Paul Jones, Herbie Flowers and whoever was around at the time. Lek is the guitarist on 'For Your Love' so you can see he was very good. Jim played on 'Silhouettes' and 'Wonderful World' and, once Karl Green faded, he was replaced on all the recordings by John Paul Jones, who also arranged almost everything and was our genius."
  • This song inspired the storyline of "No Reply," which John Lennon wrote for The Beatles.
