 +
 +==== A Day On The Town ====
 +
 +Summer in London, watery sunshine,
 +A place in the city where I can go sometimes.
 +To get on a red bus and go anywhere,
 +See all the sights and not pay the fare,
 +Summer in London.
 +
 +Chip on your shoulder, chips in your mouth,
 +Can you see the old lady, with tickets to tout.
 +Getting the tourists into their traps,
 +Taking their money, the shirts off their backs,
 +Summer in London.
 +
 +To get in a taxi and go anywhere,
 +Jump out at the park and not pay the fare.
 +Watch Speakers Corner, listen to their talk,
 +Eating their ice creams, going for a walk.
 +
 +Summer in London, the weather man said,
 +Waking up late, got to get out of bed.
 +So much to do, got to go everywhere
 +A day on the town and not pay the fare.
 +Riots in London.
 +
 +
 +==== Baggy Trousers ====
 +
 +Naughty boys in nasty schools
 +Headmasters breaking all the rules
 +Having fun and playing fools
 +Smashing up the woodwork tools
 +All the teachers in the pub
 +Passing 'round the ready-rub
 +Trying not to think of when
 +The lunch-time bell will ring again.
 +
 +Oh what fun we had
 +But, did it really turn out bad
 +All I learnt at school
 +Was how to bend not break the rules
 +Oh what fun we had
 +But at the time it seemed so bad
 +Trying different ways
 +To make a difference to the days.
 +
 +Headmaster'​s had enough to-day
 +All the kids have gone away
 +Gone to fight with next-door'​s school
 +Every term, that is the rule
 +Sits alone and bends his cane
 +Same old backsides again
 +All the small ones tell tall tales
 +Walking home and squashing snails.
 +
 +Oh what fun we had
 +But, did it really turn out bad
 +All I learnt at school
 +Was how to bend not break the rules
 +Oh what fun we had
 +But at the time it seemed so bad
 +Trying different ways
 +To make a difference to the days.
 +
 +Lots of girls and lots of boys
 +Lots of smells and lots of noise
 +Playing football in the park
 +Kicking Pushbikes after dark
 +Baggy trousers, dirty shirt
 +Pulling hair and eating dirt
 +Teacher comes to break it up
 +Back of the 'ead with a plastic cup.
 +
 +Oh what fun we had
 +But, did it really turn out bad
 +All I learnt at school
 +Was how to bend not break the rules
 +Oh what fun we had
 +But at the time it seemed so bad
 +Trying different ways
 +To make a difference to the days.
 +
 +Baggy trousers, baggy trousers, baggy trousers (x2)
 +
 +
 +==== Bed And Breakfast Man ====
 +
 +Well there'​s a man I know
 +At least I used to years ago
 +I didn't really mind
 +He used to come 'round all the time
 +
 +Of course he had to be fed
 +I had to give him a bed
 +He used to kip on my sofa
 +They used to call him a loafer
 +
 +I've heard he's changed
 +A lot since then
 +But some of his ways
 +He just can't mend
 +
 +Told the other day
 +That he'd offered to pay
 +He didn't like his dad
 +He earned all he ever had
 +
 +He didn't have no shame
 +He was a master at his game
 +He never showed his hand
 +He was the bed and breakfast man
 +
 +He was, he was the bed and breakfast man...
 +
 +
 +==== Are You Coming (With Me) ====
 +
 +Could it be someone'​s telling lies
 +Or could it be that I'm getting wise
 +Awoke myself from a nose-dive glide
 +I caught myself but you've lost all pride
 +
 +I'm not going with you
 +Won't you come on with me ?
 +
 +See your world in a drift fly past
 +So good the feeling you want to last
 +
 +I'm not going with you
 +Would you come on with me ?
 +
 +I'm not here to watch day and night
 +Or to hear you drift out of life
 +
 +If I could wake you
 +A moment I would
 +Share you my lifeline
 +Feed you some good
 +If I could wake you
 +A moment I would
 +Share you my lifeline
 +Feed you some (good)
 +
 +I'm worried for you
 +But you not for me
 +
 +When everyone'​s living
 +I know where you'll be
 +
 +If I should listen to your proposal
 +Put my future at your disposal
 +
 +Promise me you'll keep yourself clean
 +Cut yourself from your mid-day dream.
 +
 +If I could wake you
 +A moment I would
 +Share you my lifeline
 +Feed you some good
 +If I could wake you
 +A moment I would
 +Share you my lifeline and
 +Feed you some good
 +
 +
 +==== Benny Bullfrog ====
 +
 +So there I am polished heart throat in full puff
 +I look the part my wad is packed to reimburse.
 +I've yet to re-rehearse many moons spent on lovelines lent from
 +Long-legged pop-eyed fat-necked Benny Bullfrog.
 +
 +Final run-through polish up
 +The flower of love's my buttercup.
 +Moon in June for you I'll croon
 +Just like pop-eyed fat-necked Benny Bullfrog.
 +
 +Mean piece of muscle I'm Melvin Toad,
 +I dice with death, across the road.
 +Hop aboard my lover'​s leap
 +Fat-necked Quatermass
 +Who needs a Benny Bullfrog.
 +
 +Here she comes (Keep a cool head)
 +My legs numb (Keep a cool head)
 +I can't run (Keep a cool head)
 +High! My name's Hunky how d'you do
 +I catch a fly in one swoop
 +I catch a fly just for you
 +That's if you do want me to
 +But you're not hungry I know
 +A sixth sense gave me a clue.
 +I know what else we can do.
 +(You creep !)
 +
 +Long-legged pop-eyed fat-necked Benny Bullfrog.
 +
 +Wish I was Benny Bullfrog
 +Cool as Benny Bullfrog
 +What's the secret, Bullfrog?
 +
 +
 +==== Believe Me ====
 +

 +Every little whisper, let me make myself clear
 +There ain't no lies to deceive you, I love you too much for that
 +Every word that I say is true, you can believe me on that
 +
 +My friends tell me jealous lies
 +Now I'm getting my goodbyes
 +
 +Life without you, my dear
 +Was dull, as dull as can be
 +I ask you, my love, why not take me now
 +Not to leave me in misery
 +
 +Saxophone!
 +
 +If you take in all they say,
 +I guess I'll be on my way
 +Please, my darling, it's not true
 +I don't know this girl called Sue
 +
 +Sue's a name I have not heard
 +I lost my girl from that one word
 +Will she come back, I just don't know
 +And I'm takin' a heavy blow, oh
 +
 +I've got myself together
 +I can't go on in this cold weather
 +Christmas comes but once a year

 +
 +No no no no, no no no no (x2)

 +More leverage was passed today
 +From the radio I heard him say
 +I fixed another lock on my toilet door
 +House to house checks will commence throughout
 +
 +Looking at my prize possessions
 +Trying to remember which ones I own
 +I could be up for a week's detention
 +Without a line I could die in there
 +
 +Another law was passed today
 +Cut price bullets in your hardware store

 +Throwing open the windows
 +And screaming down the street
 +Eight o'​clock and all is well
 +Until the brand new beat
 +Can you smell the brand new beat

 +==== Cardiac Arrest ====
 +
 +Papers in the morning
 +Bowler hat on head
 +Walking to the bus stop
 +He's longing for his bed,
 +Waiting with his neighbours
 +In the rush hour queue
 +Got to get the first bus
 +So much for him to do.
 +He's got to hurry
 +Got to get his seat
 +Can't miss his place
 +Got to rest his feet.
 +
 +Ten more minutes till he gets there
 +The crossword'​s nearly done.
 +It's been so hard these days
 +Not nearly so much fun.
 +His mind wanders to the office
 +His telephone, desk and chair
 +He's been happy with the company
 +They'​ve treated him real fair.
 +Think of seven letters
 +Begin and end in '​C'​
 +Like a big American car
 +But misspelt with a '​D'​.
 +I wish this bus'd get a move on,
 +Driver'​s taking his time.
 +I just don't know, I'll be late
 +Oh dear what will the boss say?
 +Pull yourself together now
 +Don't get in a state
 +
 +Don't you worry
 +There'​s no hurry
 +It's a lovely day
 +Could all be going your way
 +Take the doc's advice
 +Let up enjoy your life
 +Listen to what they say
 +It's not a game they play.
 +
 +Never get there at this rate
 +He's caught up in a jam.
 +There'​s a meeting this morning
 +It's just his luck oh damn!
 +His hand dives in his pocket
 +For his handkerchief.
 +Pearls of sweat on his collar
 +His pulse-beat seems so brief.
 +Eyes fall on his wristwatch
 +The seconds pass real slow
 +Gasping for the hot air
 +But the chest pain it won't go.
 +Tried to ask for help
 +But can't seem to speak a word,
 +Words are whispered frantically
 +But don't seem to be heard.
 +What about the wife and kids?
 +They all depend on me!
 +
 +We're so sorry
 +We told you not to hurry.
 +Now it's just too late
 +You've got a certain date
 +We thought we made it clear
 +We all voiced our inner fears
 +We left it up to you
 +There'​s nothing we can do.
 +
 +

 +
 +==== Close Escape ====
 +
 +That was a close escape, have to get a new hobby to relate.
 +Something less conspicuous,​ won't take up too much time,
 +something less energetic, for what I've got in mind.
 +I won't be too persistant 'cos I'm not that way inclined.
 +See, that's the one for me. Look under &​quot;​Collins&​quot;​ see if she's free.
 +Sweaty fingers find 5p 4151683
 +&​quot;​Hello Miss Collins you'll not know me. I'm in the undies
 +buisness, see? Please please can you tell me the size; how
 +far from the knee?&​quot;​
 +
 +Oh dear dear, me luck is running thin.
 +I'll take another name I might have a win.
 +What? 2 more points? I hope no one fills it in.
 +
 +See, that's the one for me. Look under &​quot;​Dickens&​quot;​ CFG.
 +See if she'll speak to me. Hand's get shakey eye's can't see.
 +Having trouble find 5p 2171983
 +&​quot;​Hello Miss Dickens you'll not know me, I'm in the undies
 +buisness, see?&​quot;​
 +
 +Feel more relaxed now here we go again.
 +Hoi! No temporaries I've heard most take me in.
 +
 +Oh dear dear me, that is the one it fits.
 +So please please can you tell me the textured fit feels good to me.
 +In the naked mood, try to grin and bear with me.
 +Please don't think me rude, I only hear don't want to see.
 +
 +See, that's the one for me. That was quick, too quick for me.
 +Of that I can see, wash me laundry oh bugger me!
 +Sugar or milk with your tea? No I couldn'​t,​ well I'll see.
 +What's your hobby? Just the same as me, see you soon for tea.
 +
 +I'll give it one last chance I think you'll all agree.
 +I'm getting nowhere here, on my last 5p.
 +I'm sick of waiting for ages nothing interests me.
 +I'll ring another number, make sure it's a she.
 +Here we go again, I'll give it 3rd degree.
 +No hard feelings oh yes I'm sure you'll all agree.
 +I'll take another name I might have a win.
 +
 +
 +==== Coldest Day ====
 +
 +No I never heard through the grapevine
 +How you left long before your time
 +But in France on the radio
 +I could not understand a word
 +But I felt you go
 +We waited all night for the midnight lover'​s calling
 +It was the coldest day of the year
 +And I'm still thawing
 +
 +I didn't sleep a wink
 +But while radio played
 +I was day dreaming
 +Of what might have been
 +While the cold night air was freezing
 +
 +The coldest night
 +The coldest day of the year
 +
 +What is happening mother father please
 +Who will save us from the autumn breeze
 +Shivering to a halt no one wants to speak too soon
 +Although we all knew under the pale blue moon
 +The pale moon
 +The pale blue moon
 +
 +What happens then when the sun goes down
 +Tell me what's the word Johannesburg
 +When the rent goes up and the lights go down
 +On the coldest day outside the coldest town
 +We waited all night and I'm still falling
 +
 +I didn't sleep a wink
 +But while radio played
 +I was day dreaming
 +Of what might have been
 +While the cold night air was freezing
 +
 +The coldest night
 +The coldest day of the year
 +
 +The coldest night
 +The coldest day of the year
 +
 +The coldest night, day, year.
 +
 +
 +==== Disapear ====
 +
 +Walls signed with autographs,
 +Ceilings full of echoed laughs,
 +Something'​s disappear.
 +Gurus on roller skates,
 +Capital for swinging fetes
 +The area is to be cleared.
 +
 +A stab in the back, the smoke and the black
 +As it smoulders to its grave.
 +Disappear with the fun and the fear
 +Another chance to misbehave.
 +
 +Organ tinkling organ,
 +Marriage planning children,
 +Spinning, round and round.
 +rusty swings and roundabouts,​
 +Disco'​s full of layabouts,
 +Nowhere to be found.
 +
 +A stab in the back, the smoke and the black
 +As it smoulders to its grave.
 +Disappear with the fun and the fear
 +Another chance to misbehave.
 +
 +Come on then we'll go down there,
 +Let's see the local ash tray,
 +Let's see if we can be happy,
 +We'll mess about just you and me,
 +I must try to make it home before tea.

 +==== Driving In My Car ====
 +
 +I've been driving in my car, it's not quite a Jaguar
 +I bought it in Primrose Hill from a bloke from Brazil
 +It was made in fifty-nine in a factory by the Tyne
 +It says Morris on the door, the G.P.O. owned it before
 +I drive in it for my job, the governor calls me a slob
 +But I don't really care, give me some gas and the open air
 +
 +It's a bit old but it's mine, I mend it in my spare time
 +Just last week I changed the oil, the rocker valves and the coil
 +Just last week I changed the oil
 +Last week it went round the clock, I also had a little knock
 +I dented somebody'​s fender, he learnt not to park on a bender, ha ha ha
 +
 +I've been driving in my car, it don't look much but I've been far
 +I drive up to Muswell Hill, I've even been to Selsey Bill
 +I drove along the A45, I had her up to 58
 +This copper stopped me the other day, you're mistaken what could I say
 +The tyres were a little worn, they were O.K., I could have sworn
 +I like driving in my car, I'm satisfied I've got this far
 +
 +I like driving in my car, it don't look much but I've been far
 +I like driving in my car, even with a flat tyre
 +I like driving in my car, it's not quite a Jaguar
 +I like driving in my car, I'm satisfied I've got this far
 +
 +
 +==== Embarrasment ====
 +
 +Received a letter just the other day,
 +Don't seem they wanna know you no more,
 +They'​ve laid it down given you their score,
 +Within the first two lines it bluntly read.
 +
 +You're not to come and see us no more,
 +Keep away from our door,
 +Don't come 'round here no more
 +What on earth did you do that for?
 +
 +Our aunt, she don't wanna know she says,
 +What will the neighbours think they'​ll think,
 +We don't that's what they'​ll think, we don't,
 +But I will, 'cause I know they think I don't.
 +
 +Our uncle he don't wanna know he says,
 +We are a disgrace to the human race he says,
 +How can you show your face,
 +When you're a disgrace to the human race?
 +
 +No committment,​ you're an embarrassment,​
 +Yes, an embarrassment,​ a living endorsement,​
 +The intention that you have booked,
 +Was an intention that was overlooked.
 +
 +They say, stay away,
 +Don't want you home today,
 +Keep away from our door,
 +Don't come 'round here no more.
 +
 +Our dad, he don't wanna know he says,
 +This is a serious matter,
 +Too late to reconsider,
 +No one's gonna wanna know ya !
 +
 +Our mum, she don't wanna know,
 +I'm feelin'​ twice as old, she says,
 +Thought she had a head on her shoulder,
 +'Cause I'm feelin'​ twice as older,
 +I'm feelin'​ twice as older.
 +
 +You're an embarrassment...

 +Nice man George, newsagent on the corner,
 +Not very rich, but never any poorer,
 +Jaunty old George, a happy sixty-three,​
 +Not very tall, but healthier than me.
 +He whistles timeless tunes as he saunters down the street,
 +Springs in his legs and elastic in his feet.
 +
 +But in the middle of the night,
 +He steals through your garden,
 +Gives your hosiery a fright,
 +And doesn'​t say pardon.
 +As soft as a breeze,
 +With an arm full of underwear,
 +On his hands and knees,
 +Dreams about the knicker scare.
 +
 +Hello there George, newsagent on the corner,
 +How's the old car, yes the climate'​s getting warmer,
 +Chatty old George as you get your morning paper,
 +Read about the knicker thief, underwear taker.
 +Bids you 'Good day', as you wander out the door,
 +Never closes early, always cleans the floor.
 +
 +But when darkness hits the town,
 +And there'​s washing on your line,
 +Get your knickers down,
 +Before the dreaded sign.
 +When the clock strikes eight,
 +And you're snuggled up in bed,
 +He'll be at the garden gate,
 +Filling underwear with dread.
 +
 +Nice man George, newsagent on the corner,
 +He was closed today, maybe gone to mow the lawn,
 +I had to go further down the road to get me current bun,
 +Hello - Isn't that George on page one ?
 +No it couldn'​t be, but yes it is,
 +Difficult to see from these photofits.
 +
 +But they are after him,
 +Of that you can be sure,
 +They'​ve called him on the phone,
 +They'​ve knocked on his door.

 +It's been sometime since the smile
 +Upon my face
 +Had a sneak preview in town
 +It's been a while since I gave chase
 +It's been sometime since the girl
 +From round my way
 +Came and took me by the hand
 +It's been a long time since I came around
 +
 +I can remember when I
 +Stood on my head
 +And walking straight across the ground
 +I still picture the laughing faces
 +
 +Catch me, I'm falling into my past
 +Deeper, the deeper the louder the laugh
 +
 +I was told to grow up soon
 +Face my consequences
 +Being told it was high time
 +High time to come to my senses
 +Climbing up to the top floor
 +Stood the look of pleasure
 +Such a silly aged man
 +With an attic full of treasure
 +
 +Catch me, I'm falling into my past
 +Deeper, the deeper the louder the laugh
 +
 +I remember when I was ten
 +Things were somewhat better then
 +Time went by so easily
 +Is this the way life's supposed to be, but
 +Looking back I wonder why
 +It seems to pass so quickly by
 +Memories can make you cry
 +I close my eyes, my tears I try to hide
 +
 +I was thinking about
 +Tammo land
 +Of all the funny places
 +I was thinking a short time ago
 +
 +Catch me, I'm falling into my past
 +Deeper, the deeper the louder the laugh

 +The sun is laughing it's another broken morning
 +I see a shadow and call out to try and warn him
 +He didn't seem to hear just turned away
 +The quiet fellow follows
 +And points his finger straight at you
 +He had to sacrifice his pride, yes
 +And throw it all away
 +
 +And all I wanted was a word or photograph to keep at home
 +And all I wanted was a word or photograph to keep
 +All I wanted was a word or photograph
 +All I wanted was a word or photograph to keep
 +
 +His days are numbered he walks round and round in circles
 +There is no place he can ever call his own
 +He seems to jump at the sound of the phone
 +
 +Staring out the window there'​s nothing he can now do
 +All he wanted was to remain sane
 +He can't remember his own name
 +
 +(My name is Michael Caine)
 +
 +And all I wanted was a word or photograph to keep at home
 +And all I wanted was a word or photograph to keep
 +All I wanted was a word or photograph
 +All I wanted was a word or photograph to keep

 +==== Mrs Hutchinson ====
 +
 +Well Mrs. Hutchinson, you're looking healthy (huh)
 +But just in case,
 +Here's a pill a remedy.
 +
 +Well Mrs. Hutchinson, this is something,
 +That little upset, I thought I'd diagnosed,
 +Well not to worry, it's not what I supposed.
 +
 +You better sit down son your mother'​s very ill (ah)
 +We may have to operate it's more than just a chill.
 +But don't you worry, it's all in competent hands,
 +We believe it's under the ribs or one of the glands.
 +
 +Well Mrs. Hutchinson, eat up your breakfast (come on)
 +Don't smoke, it stunts your growth,
 +Stick to your diet, let's hope that you're insured.
 +
 +(Come on eat your breakfast !)

 +Well Mrs. Hutchinson, you must be very pleased to know you're leaving here.
 +We're going to miss you so (hold on)
 +Here comes your son again.

 +Are you thirsty son, I think you'll need a drink.
 +There'​s been some complications,​ she's very near the brink.
 +I have to tell you, it's my duty to speak.
 +Your mother will not last a week.
 +
 +Shame !

 +
 +==== Mummy'​s Boy ====
 +
 +In the pub, about seven thirty
 +Mother makes sure that his face ain't dirty
 +Him and mother go everywhere
 +Holds her hand without a care
 +
 +Lived with mother for fourty years
 +The neighbourhood said that he must be queer
 +Normal folk just ain't like that
 +Glad he can't hear behind his back
 +
 +When mother dies, he will have a cry
 +'cos he'll be on his own
 +He's frightened stiff, would it come to this?
 +Will he lose her to the heavenly home?

 +Dirty weekend in a hotel
 +Broke it off when she got shirty
 +She was twelve and he was thirty
 +
 +Right after that he was dead sore
 +He wouldn'​t go out with girls no more

 +
 +==== New Delhi ====
 +
 +New Delhi at three A.M.
 +Just arrived by K.L.M.
 +Left the airport in the heat
 +In the bus strange people meet
 +Driving through the starless night
 +Passing very unusual sights
 +
 +Left the bus at five to five
 +Caught a taxi started to drive
 +He thought I was a millionaire
 +And accordingly put up the fare
 +Dawn was breaking in the east
 +Causing this hot night to cease
 +
 +Mosquitos buzzing in my ears
 +Grating sound of clashing gears
 +Burning rubber filled the air
 +Taxi driver began to swear
 +The heat was burning my head was turning
 +It was then the car broke down
 +Just on the outskirts of town
 +
 +A camel from the Dhrangadhra
 +Silently passed by our car
 +A vulture circled high above in the air
 +I had to shade my eyes to cover the glare
 +Sweating in the plastic seats
 +Hard to breathe in the increasing heat
 +
 +Lying back my mind started to
 +Drift into an uneasy sleep
 +I dreamt I was in New Delhi
 +Slowly dying of la grippe
 +
 +
 +==== My Girl ====
 +
 +My girl's mad at me
 +I didn't wanna see the film tonight
 +I found it hard to say
 +She thought I'd had enough of her
 +Why can't she see
 +She's lovely to me?
 +But I like to stay in
 +And watch t.v. on my own
 +Every now and then
 +
 +My girl's mad at me
 +Been on the telephone for an hour
 +We hardly said a word
 +I tried and tried but I could not be heard
 +Why can't I explain?
 +Why do I feel this pain?
 +'Cause everything I say
 +She doesn'​t understand
 +She doesn'​t realise
 +She takes it all the wrong way
 +
 +My girl's mad at me
 +We argued just the other night
 +I thought we'd got it straight
 +We talked and talked until it was light
 +I thought we'd agreed
 +I thought we'd talked it out
 +Now when I try to speak
 +She says that I don't care
 +She says I'm unaware
 +And now she says I'm weak
 +
 +
 +==== Night Boat To Cairo ====
 +
 +Night Boat To Cairo !!.....
 +It's just gone noon
 +Half past monsoon
 +On the banks of the river Nile
 +Here comes the boat
 +Only half-afloat
 +Oarsman grins a toothless smile
 +Only just one more
 +To this desolate shore
 +Last boat along the river Nile
 +Doesn'​t seem to care
 +No more wind in his hair
 +As he reaches his last half mile
 +The oar snaps in his hand
 +Before he reaches dry land
 +But the sound doesn'​t deafen his smile
 +Just pokes at wet sand
 +With an oar in his hand
 +Floats off down the river Nile (x2)
 +
 +
 +==== Not Home Today ====
 +
 +She says he's gone away on a short holiday
 +He won't be back for awhile
 +The twleve from the bench stood up
 +And hesitated he'll be leaving
 +right after this trial
 +
 +Circumstance,​ evidence who can cheat providence
 +He wished he could go back again
 +A flick of the wrist
 +He wished that he missed
 +Not guilty is all he can say
 +
 +Pass 'round the gossip now
 +Let's wait and see
 +Pass 'round the tray now
 +Let's have some tea
 +My boys haven'​t seen him
 +He's been working away
 +Don't bother asking
 +he's not home today
 +Not home today
 +
 +T-shirts and badges
 +With free tickles and smudges
 +In the end you'll believe what you feel
 +When ten hands are aiming
 +And no-one is complaining
 +In a sense it could be more real
 +
 +

 +
 +==== One Better Day ====
 +
 +Arlington House
 +Address no fixed abode
 +An old man in a three-piece suite
 +Sits in the road
 +He stares across the water
 +And sees right through the lock
 +But on and up like outstretched hands
 +His mumbled words, his fumbled words
 +
 +Further down there'​s a photo booth
 +A million plastic bags
 +And an old woman filling out
 +A million baggage tags
 +But when she get thrown out
 +Three bags at a time
 +She spies the old chap in the road
 +To share her bags with, she has bags of time
 +
 +Surrounded by his past
 +On a short white line
 +He sits while cars pass
 +Either side
 +Takes his time
 +Trying to remember
 +One better day
 +A while ago when people stopped
 +To hear him say
 +
 +Walking 'round you sometimes
 +Hear the sunshine
 +Beating down in time with the
 +Rhythm of your shoes
 +
 +Now she has walked
 +Enough through rainy town
 +She rests her back against his
 +And sits down
 +She's trying to remember
 +One better day
 +Awhile ago when people stopped
 +To hear her say
 +
 +Walking 'round you sometimes
 +Hear the sunshine
 +Beating down in time with the
 +Rhythm of your shoes
 +
 +Walking 'round you sometimes
 +Hear the sunshine
 +Beating down in time with the
 +Rhythm of your shoes
 +
 +The feeling of arriving
 +When you've nothing left to lose
 +
 +
 +==== One Step Beyond ====
 +
 +Hey you, don't watch that
 +Watch this!
 +This is the heavy heavy monster sound
 +The nuttiest sound around
 +So if you've come in off the street
 +And you're beginning to feel the heat
 +Well listen buster
 +You better start to move your feet
 +To the rockinest, rock-steady beat
 +Of Madness
 +One step beyond!
 +
 +
 +==== Our House ====
 +
 +Father wears his Sunday best
 +Mother'​s tired she needs a rest
 +The kids are playing up downstairs
 +Sister'​s sighing in her sleep
 +Brother'​s got a date to keep
 +He can't hang around
 +
 +Our house, in the middle of our street
 +Our house, in the middle of our ...
 +
 +Our house it has a crowd
 +There'​s always something happening
 +And it's usually quite loud
 +Our mum she's so house-proud
 +Nothing ever slows her down
 +And a mess is not allowed
 +
 +Our house, in the middle of our street
 +Our house, in the middle of our ...
 +
 +Our house, in the middle of our street
 +Our house, in the middle of our ...
 +Something tells you that you've got to get away from it
 +
 +Father gets up late for work
 +Mother has to iron his shirt
 +Then she sends the kids to school
 +Sees them off with a small kiss
 +She's the one they'​re going to miss
 +In lots of ways
 +
 +Our house, in the middle of our street
 +Our house, in the middle of our ...
 +
 +I remember way back then when everything was true and when
 +We would have such a very good time such a fine time
 +Such a happy time
 +And I remember how we'd play simply waste the day away
 +Then we'd say nothing would come between us two dreamers
 +
 +Father wears his Sunday best
 +Mother'​s tired she needs a rest
 +The kids are playing up downstairs

 +
 +==== Overdone ====
 +
 +Door Locked Open, Door Locked Shut
 +See you soon, hopefully not
 +I've been and gone so many times
 +Without a work I've dropped no lines
 +Just look Forward, Never Back
 +Selfish bastard, dicta-brat
 +
 +Please forgive me
 +For the things that I've done
 +Don't feel ashamed
 +If you're asked hows your son
 +
 +Living here and living there
 +Lived at home but very rare
 +To see your faces it would be
 +a treasure locked in memory
 +Do drop a line, say hello dad
 +I await your answer, for I also beg
 +
 +Please accept me
 +From a baby I have come
 +Pain, distress and heartache
 +I have now overcome
 +
 +Running here and running there
 +Often caught but never cared
 +Been a-courting every year
 +
 +
 +==== Perfect Place ====
 +
 +Recession - a perfect fit,
 +Makes no difference where he sits,
 +Not since they cut the ties,
 +Put some sadness in his eye.
 +
 +Promises - come and go,
 +Soak the sun in drifts of snow,
 +A qualified butt-collector,​
 +Working for the private sector.
 +
 +He's seen them go,
 +Without a trace,
 +This could be it,
 +The perfect place.
 +
 +They took the plans from up my sleeve,
 +By an architect, on New Years Eve,
 +There it goes, a new bronze tower,
 +Washed away with an April shower.
 +
 +He's seen them go,
 +Without a trace,
 +This could be it,
 +The perfect place.
 +
 +But, when you've gone,
 +I'm still here, the only one,
 +My eyes and my ears,
 +Will be here 'til I'm gone;
 +And it's still the perfect place,
 +To rest a tired and weary face,
 +And it's still the perfect place,
 +To lose your soul with a trace.
 +
 +A lived-in face, with a root,
 +of matted hair, a smiling tooth,
 +A dirty hand, a pixies nose,
 +Scratches underneath his clothes.
 +
 +He's seen them go,
 +Without a trace,
 +This could be it,
 +The perfect place.
 +He's seen them go,
 +Without a trace,
 +This must be it ...
 +
 +
 +==== Pac-a-mac ====
 +
 +I wear my cap with pride
 +When swaying side to side
 +Indoors where it be crude
 +Too late to find me shrewd.
 +I never lay in doubt
 +When walking from about
 +At home where it be warm
 +You're sound asleep unborn!
 +
 +I'm a small chap
 +Walk tall chap
 +When it rains
 +Cats and dogs
 +From my pocket I pick a pac-a-mac.
 +
 +Inside a rubber wall yelling
 +Screams echo, off the ceiling.
 +My love could penetrate
 +So I'll leave you now prostrate.
 +My fag smoulders out and out
 +And odours waft there about
 +So I give my head a kip
 +My cap's worn to a split.
 +
 +I'm a small chap
 +Walk tall chap
 +When it rains
 +Cats and dogs
 +From my pocket I pick a pac-a-mac.
 +
 +I wear my cap with pride
 +When swaying side to side
 +Indoors where I feel nude
 +Too late to find me shrewd.
 +I never lay in doubt

 +At home where it be warm
 +You're sound asleep unborn!
 +
 +I'm a small chap

 +==== 
 +Please Dont Go ====
 +
 +Please don't go
 +
 +I used to walk you home
 +Then walk back alone
 +As I remember
 +I just can't remember
 +
 +I used to walk you home
 +Then walk back alone
 +As I remember
 +I just can't remember
 +
 +I will admit that there were times
 +When I was rude and so unkind
 +But can't we kiss and make amends
 +Oh why oh why can't we be friends
 +
 +When we were seen
 +It was like a dream
 +Always together
 +I thought forever
 +
 +But now you seem
 +That it's time to end
 +But I say never
 +N-n-n-no never
 +
 +But when we kissed and when we touched
 +It used to mean so very much
 +But now your cold and want to go
 +Before you do, I want you to know

 +
 +==== Primrose Hill ====
 +
 +A man opened his window and stared up Primrose Hill
 +Out there enjoying themselves I've seen them from this sill
 +Green splashed with white and red going brown
 +Children baiting animals running up and down
 +
 +I stare out of this window
 +See the world go past
 +
 +Slipping from the newspapers stacked against the wall
 +Piles of colour supplements squeeze between his fall
 +For a fleeting second I was up that hill
 +Although I've never been there I wish I was there still
 +
 +I stare out of this window
 +See the world go past
 +I've read and looked at everything
 +I know it off by heart
 +
 +Deliveries every day newspapers and food
 +Never had to venture out the phone has been removed
 +Open up the window and stare up Primrose Hill
 +Sitting here it's dark outside and everything is still
 +
 +I stare out of this window
 +See the world go past
 +I've read and looked at everything
 +I know it off by heart
 +
 +
 +==== Promises Promises ====
 +
 +I'll promise you a gift worth much more if not sold.
 +Half for you and half for me if I may act so bold.
 +I'll promise you a home that money cannot buy.
 +All good homely spirits walking by and by.
 +
 +I'll promise you a world of making of amend,
 +And on our anniversary invite you round the bend.

 +And on the anniversary invite you round the bend.
 +

 +So I've decided on decisions that will not strike you very fair.
 +
 +Let's devise a plan and we'll think about it twice,
 +Sketching watercolour paints, bury hatchets in the ice.

 +==== Razor Blade Alley ====
 +
 +oooo I didnt talk too much, in fact not at all
 +but to ask for the price I was to be no fool,
 +Moneys no time to waste Or to shoot up the wall
 +Yyou got The know how, the place did you take media school
 +
 +She led the way from the alley back to her house
 +Must not be seen going in must not be seen coming Out.
 +She said I looked mighty but thin
 +She told me 'im gonna give you a second helping'​
 +
 +Oooo Razor blade alley, I've been there,
 +Razor Blade alley neither of us cared
 +
 +It was the prime time but the wrong place
 +It was my first time, I hope my last date
 +I'm just to shy to check in, but this pain of these razors is cutting in
 +Oooh felt like a knight without shining armour on at the time
 +She thought she was in a dream, floating up on cloud nine
 +
 +Now I awake,
 +She is nowhere,
 +But the razor cuts deeper everywhere.
 +
 +
 +==== Prospects ====
 +
 +A train ride to Tuesday
 +A platform far away
 +Scarlet shades of evening move clouds of grey
 +Awaking, arriving
 +The dirty station where
 +He passes crowds of people who don't see him there
 +
 +Here's a desert island room
 +For a man who's cast away
 +Stranded in this home from home
 +&​gt;​From his family
 +Far away
 +
 +Home.
 +Well this is it
 +This is it
 +Is this my heart
 +I miss you with all my heart
 +This is not
 +Is this not
 +My home
 +
 +One shoe-lace cardboard suitcase
 +One passport from the Queen
 +One room for a light bulb
 +Where no-one'​s been
 +Sticks and stones, my old bones
 +Not like nineteen fifty-four
 +Then the liked me fine
 +But not anymore
 +
 +This empty room
 +Where he's marooned
 +With nothing left to say
 +But in the dark
 +He thinks of home far away
 +
 +Home.
 +Well this is it
 +This is it
 +Is this my heart
 +I miss you with all my heart
 +This is not
 +Is this not
 +My home
 +
 +I feel cold, getting old
 +More than the climate'​s changed
 +Stranded on this island
 +The rate of exchange
 +
 +Here's a desert island room
 +For a man who's cast-away
 +Today he will not be at work
 +There is no work anyway
 +
 +How is it when you feel it
 +Do you wonder what gets you down
 +You're looking in the windows
 +When you walk this town
 +
 +
 +==== Rise and Fall ====
 +
 +These are the streets I used to walk
 +On summer nights, sit out and talk
 +That's the house where I used to live
 +I remember what I would give.
 +
 +This is the town I won't forget
 +And after anger there'​s nothing left
 +Walking now round and round
 +Familiar sights are open ground.
 +
 +Being here again
 +I can recall
 +Forgotten moments
 +The rise and fall.
 +
 +We used to live where children play
 +They leave their homes a mile away
 +To come and stand in trees and grass
 +Where we once walked the memories last.
 +
 +Being here again
 +I can recall
 +Forgotten moments
 +The rise and fall.
 +
 +The sun shines east, the sun shines west
 +But I know where the sun shines best
 +Casey street in the afternoon
 +Once again it's over too soon.
 +
 +Being here again
 +I can recall
 +Forgotten moments
 +The rise and fall.
 +
 +Being here again
 +I can recall

 +==== Rockin in Ab ====
 +
 +I used to work nights with my dad
 +It was the best job I ever had
 +Until some blokes on their bikes came through
 +Said &​quot;​Come on down to youth, brother, see what's new&​quot;​
 +Well come on, come on, come on, let's have some fun tonight
 +
 +Went to the dance like they said I should
 +It cost three bob, but it was quite good
 +The band were jumpin'​ and a-jivin'​ around
 +Their 20 Watt amps really made a sound
 +Well come on, come on, come on, let's have some fun tonight
 +
 +Well, I'll have a cup of tea and then I'll change me name
 +And I'll put my records o-ah-o-ah-on
 +Till all the geezers in the flats complain
 +&​quot;​Wish that rockstar bloke was gone&​quot;​ is the moan
 +
 +Let's have some fun tonight
 +
 +Sold all my records and I bought a mic
 +I found some blokes who would do what I like
 +I saw the vicar who ran the hall
 +He said we can rehearse there any time at all
 +Well come on, come on, come on, let's have some fun tonight
 +
 +We're really rocking now, I've got a bird
 +She says we are the best band she's ever heard
 +I've got a bike and I'm having a time
 +But my mum keeps saying &​quot;​Rock '​n'​ roll's a crime!&​quot;​
 +Well come on, come on, come on, let's have some fun tonight
 +All right
 +All night!
 +Well come on, come on, come on, let's have some fun tonight
 +
 +
 +==== Samantha ====
 +
 +One night in a cold sweat
 +I heard the call
 +So without fear and free from fright
 +I walked tall
 +As I crept the passages
 +Only just but faint
 +In and out of the central heating
 +It came and then went
 +
 +Samantha, Samantha dear
 +I have to be gone
 +Samantha, oh Samantha dear
 +But ooh, she slept on
 +
 +Well I've itched a thousand itches
 +But this one tops them all
 +While crouched down with an ear to the ground
 +I saw the call
 +
 +Springing up in disbelief
 +The supension spilt
 +And peering in a bathroom mirror
 +Hung the men with guilt
 +
 +Samantha, Samantha dear
 +I have to be gone
 +Samantha, oh Samantha dear
 +But ooh, she slept on
 +
 +One night in a cold sweat
 +I heard the call
 +So without fear and free from fright
 +I walked tall
 +
 +Samantha, Samantha dear
 +I have to be gone
 +Samantha, oh Samantha dear
 +But
 +
 +Samantha, Samantha dear
 +I have to be gone
 +Samantha, oh Samantha dear
 +But
 +
 +There were all sorts of funny faces
 +Being pulled
 +But mine was the funniest face
 +
 +Samantha, Samantha dear
 +I have to be gone
 +Samantha, oh Samantha dear
 +But ooh, she slept on
 +
 +
 +==== Shadow Of Fear ====
 +
 +I walk through Camden town in the evening,
 +strolling silently and hardly breathing.
 +Footsteps behind me slightly quicker,
 +the corner of my eye a shadowy flicker.
 +
 +I wonder if he's after my soul again tonight.
 +Stops to whisper with the shadows but still keeps me in his sight.
 +I shout at passing strangers but they don't seem aware,
 +don't want to get involved in my spiritual affair.
 +
 +Tonight my fears are growing worse and worse.
 +I feel him brewing up an evil curse.
 +I sense a chill creep up my spine
 +I want to scream but only whine
 +because I know it can't be true
 +mind's gone now legs it's up to you.
 +
 +I wonder if he's after my soul again tonight.
 +Stops to whisper in the shadows but still keeps me in his sight.
 +I shout at passing strangers but they don't seem aware,
 +don't want to get involved in my spititual affair
 +
 +I try to accept him as my partner.
 +He still makes cold his manic laughter.
 +But every time I try to turn around he throws my fears
 +and makes no sound he stirs them to the ground.
 +
 +Acheing muscles, puff and pant I run.
 +To stagger home and hide behind my mum.
 +But even when I'm safely in my bed.
 +I know that he is waiting in my head.
 +
 +I wonder if he's after my soul again tonight.
 +Stops to whisper in the shadows but still keeps me in his sight.
 +I shout at passing strangers but they don't seem aware,
 +don't want to get involved in my spiritual affair.
 +
 +
 +==== Shut Up ====
 +
 +I tell you I didn't do it
 +'Cause I wasn't there
 +Don't blame me, it just isn't fair
 +You listen to their side
 +Now listen to mine
 +Can't think of a story
 +Sure you'll find me sometime
 +
 +Now pass the blame and don't blame me
 +Just close your eyes and count to three
 +(One two three)
 +Then I'll be gone and you'll forget
 +The broken window, t.v. set
 +
 +It wasn't me either, I'm just his mate
 +He told me to stand here and watch the gate
 +I've got a wife and three kids you know
 +They'​ll tell you I'm straight, at least I think so
 +I'm as honest as the day is long,
 +The longer the daylight, the less I do wrong
 +
 +Now pass the blame and don't blame me
 +Just close your eyes and count to three
 +(One two three)
 +Then I'll be gone and you'll forget
 +The broken window, t.v. set
 +
 +Pass the blame and don't blame me
 +Just close your eyes and count to three
 +(One two three)
 +Then I'll be gone and I'll forget
 +That what you give is what you get...
 +
 +Pass the blame and don't blame me

 +==== Sunday Morning ====
 +
 +Sunday morning silence, curtain stay closed late
 +No one thinks of kitchens mornings in a filthy state

 +==== Take It Or Leave It ====
 +
 +How come he enjoys himself not me? (I don't know)
 +How come she smiles a good morning to me?
 +How do they make a hard day's work easy?
 +Tell me something I'll put it to the test
 +Take hold of yourself and you will see
 +How lucky we are to be free,
 +Now you take for granted,
 +Life and country.
 +
 +How come he jokes with friends but not me?
 +How can she sing out of tune not me?
 +How do they find time for kids on Sunday?
 +I can't express uncalled for agress,
 +You're in one-way traffic can't you see?
 +Before a head-on crash steer free,
 +When if it's too late,
 +Don't come and cry to me.
 +
 +How come they get on with but not me?
 +How can they walk arm-in-arm happily?
 +How does that old boy dance down the street?
 +Tell me something I'll put it to the test,
 +Take hold of yourself and you will see,
 +How lucky we are to be free,

 +I always want to find it

 +==== Tears You Cant Hide ====
 +
 +Now I see tears you can't hide
 +
 +Carry the world on your back
 +Heavy weights tear you apart
 +Now I see tears you can't hide
 +
 +Feel in a rage can't speak up for yourself
 +All that you try to do it's no good anyway
 +Now I see tears you can't hide
 +
 +No use saying it's a crime
 +Voices surround me but they lie, lie

 +Hold out your hand together make your stand

 +
 +==== That Face ====
 +
 +I see a face that face is mine
 +The mirror marks the changing time
 +Her face I'll never see again
 +And mine will never be the same
 +That face was fine only yesterday
 +My problems seemed so far away
 +
 +Reflections I see of myself
 +As in sickness as in health
 +As she left as for worse
 +No chance to re-rehearse
 +
 +Try to forget try not to see
 +Who is that face looking at me
 +Reflections of yesterday
 +If only I could make you stay
 +
 +One day past is like a year
 +She wouldn'​t say what made her leave
 +I didn't think she'd ever go
 +And why she did I'll never know
 +I wish I could return and see
 +But now it's just a memory
 +
 +Reflections of yesterday (x2)
 +
 +I see a face that face is mine
 +The mirror marks the changing time
 +Her face I'll never see again
 +And mine will never be the same
 +
 +Reflections of yesterday (x2)
 +
 +
 +==== The Prince ====
 +
 +Buster, he sold the heat
 +With a rocksteady beat
 +
 +An earthquake is erupting
 +But not in Orange street
 +A ghost dance is preparing
 +You got to help us with your feet
 +If you're not in the mood to dance
 +Step back, grab yourself a seat
 +This may not be uptown Jamaica
 +But we promise you a treat
 +Buster bowl me over with your bogus dance
 +Shuffle me off my feet
 +Even though I'll keep on running
 +I'll never get to Orange street
 +
 +So I set it up myself to say
 +For the man who set the beat
 +So I'll leave it up to you out there
 +To get him back on his feet
 +
 +Buster bowl me over with your bogus dance
 +Shuffle me off my feet
 +Even though I'll keep on runnin'​
 +I'll never get to Orange street
 +
 +Bring back the
 +Who is the
 +We want the
 +Bring back the Prince
 +
 +
 +==== The Sun And The Rain ====
 +
 +It's raining again,
 +I'm hearing its pitter patter down.
 +It's wet in the street
 +Reflecting the lights and splashing feet,
 +Nowhere to go,
 +And nothing I have to do, have to do.
 +
 +It's raining again,
 +I follow the Christmas lights down town.
 +I'm leaving the flow
 +Of people walking all around,
 +Round and round,
 +
 +I hear the sound of rain falling in my ears
 +Washing away the weariness like tears.
 +I can feel my troubles running down,
 +Disappear into the silent sound.
 +
 +Just walking along,
 +My clothes are soaked right through to the skin,
 +I haven'​t a doubt, that this is what life is all about,
 +The sun and the rain.
 +Scraps of paper(???) washing down the drain.
 +
 +I feel the rain falling on my face
 +I can say there is no better place
 +Than standing up in the falling down
 +In so much rain I could almost drown.
 +
 +It's raining again
 +A crack in the clouds reveals blue skies
 +I've been feeling so low(low)
 +But now everything is on my side
 +The sun and the rain.
 +Walk with me fill my heart again
 +
 +I hear the rain falling in my ears
 +Washing away the weariness like tears.
 +I can feel my troubles running down,
 +Disappear into the silent sound.
 +
 +I feel the rain falling on my face
 +I can say there is no better place
 +Than standing up in the falling down
 +In so much rain I could almost drown.
 +
 +Do de do do de do do do
 +Do de do de do de do do do
 +
 +
 +==== Time ====
 +
 +When I considered how my life is spent
 +They cry but I know that everything is heaven sent
 +But why do people lie when all they want is truth at their tables
 +
 +The sky is looking very blue today
 +It's so fine I'd agree with every word you say
 +About it it must be said it doesn'​t mean much at all
 +
 +Time you make changes
 +Time you'll add ages
 +Time is walking with you by your side
 +
 +There'​s no reason that we should complain
 +In the night everybody looks the same
 +It's so sad but we don't seem to be going forward at all
 +
 +Time (x3)
 +
 +Time you make changes
 +Time you'll add ages
 +Time is walking with you by your side
 +
 +Time you make changes
 +Time you'll add ages
 +Time is walking with you by your side
 +
 +(Come on time)
 +
 +Time you make changes
 +Time you'll add ages
 +Time is walking with you by your side
 +
 +Time gentlemen please
 +Time (x2)
 +
 +
 +==== Time For Tea ====
 +
 +Scouring through the wasteland
 +With an uge to take
 +Anything that comes into view
 +Only ten more puffs to tea time
 +I've found eating so time consuming
 +
 +WIllie, oh Willie she cried
 +It's time for tea
 +WIllie, where in hell has he gone
 +It's time for tea
 +
 +South of the wateland at your D.I.Y.
 +The inconsiderate rings his till
 +Offering plans of easy credit
 +Claims he'll cause a killing in the school half term
 +
 +WIllie, oh Willie she cried
 +It's time for tea
 +WIllie, where in hell has he gone
 +It's time for tea
 +
 +And welly well well well what have I found here
 +A hiding place made by frigid air
 +I think I'll try it on and give my mates a scare
 +They'​ll all be searching neither here nor there
 +
 +WIllie, oh Willie she cried
 +It's time for tea
 +WIllie, where in hell has he gone
 +It's time for tea
 +
 +Long depress of autumn breeze
 +Sucking on a rubber back teeth
 +Plays into the hands of the hardware man
 +Who selfishly &quot;I don't care&​quot;​
 +
 +
 +==== Tiptoes ====
 +
 +Waking up again another sleepless night
 +Climbing taller buildings more dreams of flight
 +In a pool of sweat not knowing what to do
 +No more earth-bound feelings a diff'​rent point of view
 +
 +Moment of truth he heads towards the building
 +His glazed eyes stare vacantly following his feelings
 +No turning back the door's already shutting
 +Standing on his tiptoes to reach the nineteenth button
 +
 +To miss a grasping hand
 +(I'm falling again)
 +And squash a passer-by
 +(I'm falling again)
 +He wanted to see some evidence
 +(I'm falling again)
 +That he could really fly
 +
 +Balanced on the edge only time could tell
 +Some say he was pushed, others say he fell
 +Standing on that rooftop his brain told him '​no'​
 +But all the dreams in nights before told him he must go
 +
 +To miss a grasping hand
 +(I'm falling again)
 +And squash a passer-by
 +(I'm falling again)
 +He wanted to see some evidence
 +(I'm falling again)
 +That he could really fly
 +
 +His questions and himself
 +Nearly fell on stony ground
 +He could'​ve embarrassed his family
 +Who watched him from the crowd
 +
 +Balanced on the edge only time could tell
 +Some say he was pushed, others say he fell
 +
 +To miss a grasping hand
 +(I'm falling again)
 +And squash a passer-by
 +(I'm falling again)
 +He wanted to see some evidence
 +(I'm falling again)
 +That he could really fly
 +(I'm falling ...)
 +
 +
 +==== Tommorows Dream ====
 +
 +A cage of my own, this cage is my home,
 +And oh so alone am I.
 +From above all around helpless to the sound
 +Of my brother'​s cry.
 +
 +Just leave us alone, we don't want to moan,
 +Only if you make us.
 +Smashed on the lock until I've had to, drop.
 +Tried to get my message through.
 +
 +Off goes another with another'​s brother,
 +My arms try to bend across to a friend.
 +
 +You can't burn me with your laser beam,
 +It's pointed at you and tomorrow'​s dream.
 +You'll burn my body quietly set free,
 +And I'll cry for you as I sway from my tree.
 +
 +I'd give you my brain nothing you would gain,
 +Its misery seeps from you.
 +When leaving my cage I am in a rage
 +Because I know what you're up to.
 +
 +When you walk away remember next day,
 +Not a second I've slept, awake I'll have kept.
 +When I reappear, don't look on in fear
 +My hands could kill
 +But they never will.
 +
 +You can't burn me with your laser beam,
 +It's pointed at you and tomorrow'​s dream.
 +You'll burn my body quietly set free,
 +And I'll cry for you as I sway from my tree.
 +
 +
 +==== Turning Blue ====
 +
 +With the ease of a practised smile
 +The tears of a crocodile
 +Well shake then wash your hands
 +Of the smell of foreign land
 +The propaganda woman said
 +It might be worse you could be dead
 +Now we've an impressive show
 +Let's wind it up and watch it go
 +
 +Still a strange thing to me
 +Is there'​s no place I'd rather be
 +Rollercoasting backwards to
 +Up and down and turning blue
 +
 +No pie in the sky
 +For the small man gets smaller
 +But a poke in the eye
 +From an unwelcome caller
 +
 +Still a strange thing to me
 +Is there'​s no place I'd rather be
 +Rollercoasting backwards to
 +Up and down and turning blue
 +
 +Policeman'​s eyes on overload
 +A fractured island might explode
 +A million pieces washed ashore
 +From Disneyland to Warsaw
 +
 +Let's have a rehearsal run
 +An underground holiday in the sun
 +Take time to sit and reflect
 +A white wall where the sun collects
 +
 +Still a strange thing to me
 +Is there'​s no place I'd rather be
 +Rollercoasting backwards to
 +Up and down and turning blue
 +
 +
 +==== Tomorrow'​s Just Another Day ====
 +
 +Trying hard, I thought I'd done my best
 +All my life, I can't get no rest
 +Some who've closed the door before
 +Say I can't carry on no more.
 +
 +I hear them saying
 +Tomorrow'​s just another day
 +I hear them saying
 +And it gets better every day
 +I hear them saying
 +Tomorrow'​s just another day
 +
 +Listened long, tried to take it in
 +All these facts leave me in the swim
 +It's down and down there is no up
 +I think that I've run out of luck.
 +
 +I hear them saying
 +Tomorrow'​s just another day
 +I hear them saying
 +And it gets better every day
 +I hear them saying
 +Tomorrow'​s just another day
 +Tomorrow'​s just another... day
 +
 +Walking now, over covered ground
 +There is a chance if I move around
 +I need a moment to reflect
 +On the friendships I have wrecked.
 +
 +Why is it I, don't I always try ?
 +
 +I hear them say
 +Tomorrow'​s just another day
 +I hear them say
 +And it gets better every day
 +(x2)
 +I heard them say
 +Tomorrow'​s just another day
 +I hear them say
 +Tomorrow'​s just another day
 +Tomorrow'​s just another...
 +
 +I hear them saying
 +Tomorrow'​s just another day
 +I hear them saying
 +And it gets better every day
 +I hear them saying
 +Tomorrow'​s just another day
 +
 +
 +==== Uncle Sam ====
 +
 +Here they come again hop scotching up to my door
 +One by one again knockety knock knocking upon my floor
 +Swinging on my gate they gain entry by the yard
 +Pulling at my hair they scream paint your thoughts upon my card
 +
 +But not tonight I've got studies to examine
 +Tomorrow I'll be watching all the Queen'​s men
 +A talent contest on Monday with my Uncle Sam
 +Who now takes up all of my time he gives me things to do
 +'Cause he's a wonderful man
 +
 +But I'm sailing across the sea to see my Uncle Sam
 +I'm sailing across the sea to be with my Uncle Sam
 +To be with my Uncle Sam
 +
 +Silly little sniggers from the women liberators
 +But I'll stand and hold my post
 +Polished buttons and erect I'll raise the flag
 +I'll show those women who's the most
 +
 +But not tonight I've got studies to examine
 +Tomorrow I'll be watching all the Queen'​s men
 +A talent contest on Monday with my Uncle Sam
 +Who now takes up all of my time, gives me things to do

 +Tomorrow ah ah ah
 +And tomorrow I'll be watching all the Queen'​s men
 +A talent contest on Monday with my Uncle Sam
 +Who now takes up all of my time he gives me things to do
 +'Cause he's a wonderful man
 +
 +I'm sailing across the sea to see my Uncle Sam
 +I'm sailing across the sea to be with my Uncle Sam
 +(x2)

 +
 +==== Waiting For The Ghost Train ====
 +
 +A straw headed woman, and a barrel chested man,
 +A pocket full of posies with a hat brim full of sand,
 +Ooh - waiting for the train that never comes,
 +
 +A dog chasing the tumbleweeds,​ across the sandy floor,
 +That drift along the platform, through the ticket office door,
 +Ooh - waiting for the train that never comes, (x2)
 +
 +But don't tell me there'​s nothing coming, you don't fool me,
 +I hear the ghost train rumbling along the tracks - set them free,
 +And I hear them,
 +It's black and white don't try to hide, (x2)
 +
 +The station master'​s writing with a piece of orange chalk,
 +A hundred cancellations,​ still no one wants to walk,
 +Keep the hungry children from the skeletons in the back,
 +Paid to keep an eye out for the gipsy caravan,
 +Ooh - waiting for the train that never comes, (x2)
 +I hear the ghost train rumbling along the tracks - set them free,
 +And I hear them,
 +It's black and white don't try to hide, (x2)
 +It's black and white (don't try), (x2)
 +It's black and white don't try to hide, (x2)
 +And I hear them,
 +It's black and white don't try to hide, (x2)
 +
 +
 +==== Victoria Gardens ====
 +
 +You're looking and listening and hoping
 +that things are changing for the better
 +You're trying to see if what you're teaching is the truth sir
 +You're looking and listening and hoping
 +that things will change for better
 +Don't want to preach or teach the blues to you now brother
 +
 +I just left Victoria Gardens
 +And walked through cardboard city land
 +A burnt out star was asking
 +How would I like to shake his hand
 +
 +I walked on in no hurry (hurry hurry hurry)
 +And wondered where did we go wrong?
 +
 +We're looking and listening and hoping
 +that things are changing for the better
 +Don't want to preach or teach the blues to you now brother
 +
 +I walked on in no hurry (hurry hurry hurry)
 +And wondered where did we go wrong?
 +
 +Looking listening hoping that things are changing for the better
 +(Only time can tell)
 +
 +It's a bloody fine situation
 +That we find ourselves in
 +He said something I couldn'​t mention (here)
 +And we laughed with him again
 +
 +I walked on in no hurry (hurry hurry hurry)
 +And wondered where did we go wrong?
 +
 +Looking listening hoping that things are changing for the better
 +And trying to see if what you're teaching is the truth sir
 +
 +She said it's for the good of us all
 +(of us all, of us all, of us all)
 +
 +Looking listening hoping that things are changing for the better
 +Don't want to preach or teach the blues to you now brother
 +
 +I'm not so sure
 +(sure, sure, sure)
 +
 +And now it is early evening
 +I look across grey Leicester Square
 +A large and silent crowd were walking
 +Said they had every right to be there
 +
 +
 +==== Waltz Into Mischief ====
 +
 +The latest and greatest
 +Amazing arrival
 +No conscience no shame
 +For the game of survival
 +Theives and villians
 +And fraudulent swindlers
 +Gathered in tribute
 +With masks of respect
 +
 +A big hand hooray
 +Oh come all ye trustful
 +Let the band play
 +A waltz into mischief
 +
 +The chairman is speaking
 +Instructs the apprentice
 +All faces are turned
 +To the wizard of sentence
 +Years of experience
 +Fall from his tongue
 +Like teardops to puddles
 +They ripple among
 +
 +A big hand hooray
 +Oh come all ye trustful
 +Let the band play
 +A waltz into mischief
 +
 +This king of the cowboys
 +Holds fast his deception
 +Rides their misgivings
 +To rapturous reception
 +Calls on the crowd
 +Of white pointed heads
 +To check under carpets
 +(While we're in our beds?)
 +
 +A big hand hooray
 +Oh come all ye trustful
 +Let the band play
 +A waltz into mischief
 +(x3)
 +
 +
 +==== When Dawn Arrives ====
 +
 +He hums tonight through his streets,
 +My unlatched window the tune repeats,
 +The kerb-crawling car winds down to a stop.
 +A few seconds mumble then whisks him off.
 +
 +Sick and tired of abuse,
 +Controlled signs of hysteria,
 +But like when dawn arrives,
 +He remembers his leisure.
 +
 +He runs tonight through his block,
 +A crack in the curtain is unlocked.
 +No meeting with a mother or greeting a friend
 +A sharp-looking boot-jack with some time to spend.
 +
 +Sick and tired of abuse,
 +Controlled signs of hysteria,
 +But like when dawn arrives,
 +He remembers his leisure.
 +
 +He cries tonight
 +Through his manner
 +I can see his conscience
 +Get the better
 +From a door-way stepped in
 +Shadowed leather
 +Exchanging handshakes for money
 +And pleasure.
 +
 +He crawls tonight through his scum,
 +From my dirty window his body's numb.
 +Beneath the street-lamp tilts shoulders bent,
 +Then meets his pick-up who pays his rent.
 +
 +Sick and tired of abuse,
 +Controlled signs of hysteria,
 +But like when dawn arrives,
 +He remembers his leisure.
 +His pleasure
 +
 +
 +==== White Heat ====
 +
 +Down between the sunbeams the moneylenders chat
 +Hiding in the shade outside a council flat
 +Kids in the lift looking for things to throw
 +
 +And practising their aim on the heads below
 +They make their apologies with the quickness of their feet
 +Then lost in the heat haze that shimmers across the street
 +
 +Underfoot the pavement is melting
 +Crumbling for the luckiest girl
 +The whole world is melting.
 +
 +(White white heat)
 +I'm still not in until a week next Wednesday
 +I'm holidaying on the roof ©til the big bad wolf goes away
 +
 +In the street the pavement is melting
 +Crumbling for the luckiest girl
 +The whole world is melting.
 +
 +White heat turns the street upside down.
 +
 +Down between the sunbeams the debt collectors chat, chat, chat, chat,
 +Hiding in the shade outside a council flat
 +By the hairs on my chinny chin chin
 +I shall not let you in.
 +
 +In the street the pavement is melting
 +Crumbling for the luckiest girl
 +The whole world is melting.
 +
 +(For the luckiest girl in all the world)
 +(White, white heat)
 +
 +
 +==== Wings Of A Dove ====
 +
 +Take time for your pleasure
 +And laugh with love
 +Take the hand of another
 +And sing for the wings of a dove
 +
 +Woah woah, for the wings of a dove (x2)
 +
 +Look up at the rooftops
 +When you're walking 'round
 +Don't think for a moment
 +Of looking down
 +
 +Woah woah, (Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah) for the wings of a dove
 +Woah woah, for the wings of a dove (x3)
 +
 +Ha-lellujah (lellujah) (x2)
 +
 +Look up at the rooftops (the roof)
 +When you're walking 'round
 +Don't think for a moment
 +Of looking down
 +
 +At a room at the top
 +Where we're not allowed
 +Cheer to the echo
 +Can you hear the sound
 +
 +Woah woah, (Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah) for the wings of a dove (x2)
 +Woah woah, for the wings of a dove (x2)
 +
 +Yeah yeah yeah (etc.)
 +
 +Woah woah, for the wings of a dove (x2)
 +Et cetera
 +
 +Blue Train!
 +
 +Blue train taking me from you...
 +
 +
 +==== Wonderful ====
 +
 +These are the days I love,
 +And I'll be happier than most
 +Crossing england coast to coast,
 +Through your town,
 +And as I cross the land
 +And I cry a salty tear,
 +For those who are not here
 +On this day
 +
 +You're wonderful
 +So wonderful,
 +Its good to see you
 +You're wonderful
 +So wonderful,
 +Its great to be here.
 +
 +And as I think back when
 +Life was uncomplicated then
 +We had some things we hated
 +But more that we loved
 +And we took care to wear
 +What nobody else would wear
 +Cos we didnt really care
 +In those days
 +
 +You're wonderful
 +So wonderful,
 +Its good to see you
 +You're wonderful
 +So wonderful,
 +Its great to be here.
 +
 +
 +==== You Said ====
 +
 +You said you're leaving, well that's ok,
 +You said you've had enough, what can I say ?
 +I suppose I'll be sad for a week or two,
 +But in the end, it's the same for me and you,
 +We'll both be sorry through and through.

 +
 +==== Yesterdays Men ====
 +
 +An insolent speck of youth
 +Being taken for a walk
 +So tightly by the ear
 +That he can hardly talk
 +
 +Yesterday'​s men hang to today
 +To sing in the old-fashioned way
 +It must get better in the long run
 +Has to get better in the long run
 +
 +A metropolitan marathon
 +Has been held today

 +How far will you go
 +When your race is run
 +And you already know
 +

 +Will we be here in the long run
