Published on May 10, 2016 with No Comments

“Ooh La La” is a 1973 song by the band Faces, written by Ronnie Lane and Ronnie Wood. It was the title song for the band’s last studio album, Ooh La La.

The lead vocals were provided by Wood, a rarity in the band’s catalog, as most lead vocals were by Rod Stewart or less often by Ronnie Lane. Stewart and Lane recorded lead vocals for it, however their producer suggested Wood give it a try, and that was the version that was used for the track which appeared on the record.

The lyrics describe a dialogue between a grandfather and grandson, with the elder man warning the younger about the perils of relationships with women: “Poor old granddad, I laughed at all his words / I thought he was a bitter man; he spoke of women’s ways.” The chorus laments, “I wish that I knew what I know now, when I was younger.”
