(Dawning of A) New Era

This is the dawning of a new era (x2) I met a girl from area three She told me that she worked in a chicken factory

This is the dawning of a new era By two o'clock we were 'Brahms & Lisst' I had to walk her home through area six This is the dawning of a new era Sticks and stones may break my bones In area six they throw bottles and bricks and kicks

This is the dawning of a new era I climbed the stairs to the fourteenth floor The key won't fit the door This is the dawning of a new era She said she had a beautiful flat We had to sleep on the mat

This is the dawning of a new era Woke up and thought “This ain't exactly heaven” Oh shit, this is area seven This is the dawning of a new era (x3) This is so boring, it's a new era

A Message To You Rudy

Stop your messing around Better think of your future Time you straightened right out Creating problems in town

Rudy, a message to you (x2)

Stop your fooling around Time you straightened right out Better think of your future Else you'll wind up in jail

Rudy, a message to you (x2)

Stop your messing around Better think of your future Time you straightened right out Creating problems in town

Rudy, a message to you (x4)

All Gone Wrong

So what's the point of thinking deep I bite my nails and I'm losing sleep Goes round and round and will never halt It's all gone wrong and it's all my fault I used the sugar when I needed salt Things ain't cooking for me, as you see

I need a laugh so I take a drink Ain't it strange how they start to shrink I swig a river and I cry a lake It's all gone wrong and it's my mistake I wanted tremor but I got earthquake Things ain't going my way, not today

I'm sitting on a one way train You say I'm heading for an early grave There goes anxiety my favorite station And here comes panic and palpitation

I get frustrated 'cos I need a break But when it comes along you know I'll take I've never eaten from the hand of fate It's all gone wrong but it's not too late I needed love but all I got was hate Things ain't down to a tee, believe me

I'm sitting on a one way train You say I'm heading for an early grave There goes anxiety my favorite station And here comes panic and palpitation

I saw the doctor 'cos I'm feeling stress “Hop on the couch” he said, “and get undressed” He shook his head and said “the futures bleak” It's getting worse and I ain't hit my peak I want to shout but I can't even speak Things can't get any worse, where's the hearse?

Blank Expression

Snow is falling all around, seven o'clock and the roads are blocked So I walk down town, there's no-one around

I walk in a bar and immediately I sense danger You look at me girl as if I was some kind of a, a total stranger

Where did you get that blank expression on your face? (x2)

The streets are dark, and there's no-one about I wander home and all the ,the lights are out, I keep wondering

Where did you get that blank expression on your face? (x4)

Bonediggin'

I'm putting away my working clothes for the weekend I ain't gonna do that job no more I'm tired of being used and mistreated So tired of being feeling on like a cloud

This time I think I'm going to lose my mind Can't take it take it take it no more I've only the one life live But the time, oh it seems so short So short, yeah

I'm working in the church yard every morning Yeah, bonediggin' will be the death of me In the red hot sun and the rain and hailstones I'm just digging to be free

This time I think I'm going to lose my mind Can't take it take it take it no more I've only the one life live But the time, oh it seems so short So short, yeah

You say I'm not worth my meager wages You put me down and treat me like a dog Some day soon this poor boy will get even Yeah, some day soon Mr. Bossman you have to pay

This time I think I'm going to lose my mind Can't take it take it take it no more I've only the one life live But the time, oh it seems so short So short, yeah

I'm putting away my working clothes for the weekend

Call Me Names

How can you be so horrible? The things you say are terrible You make me feel ashamed When you call me names

How come you think it's wise To tell those wicked lies You play such silly games When you call me names

Stones and sticks don't hurt like bricks No skin off my nose I'll take the flack and hand it back It's just the way that it goes You dish the dirt but names don't hurt You never break my bones I'll grit my teeth but underneath It' only sticks and stones

You think you win a prize To cut me down to size You make outrageous claims When you call me names

Stones and sticks don't hurt like bricks No skin off my nose I'll take the flack and hand it back It's just the way that it goes You dish the dirt but names don't hurt You never break my bones I'll grit my teeth but underneath It' only sticks and stones

How can you say those things When they aim to sting It always sounds the same When you call me names

Stones and sticks don't hurt like bricks No skin off my nose I'll take the flack and hand it back It's just the way that it goes You dish the dirt but names don't hurt You never break my bones I'll grit my teeth but underneath It' only sticks and stones

You never say what you mean You never mean what you say (x2) You never say what you mean When you call me names (x4)

Concrete Jungle

I'm going out tonight I don't know if I'll be alright Everyone want's to hurt me Baby danger in the city

I have to carry a knife Because there's people threatening my life I can't dress just the way I want I'm being chased by the national hunt

Concrete jungle, animals are after me Concrete jungle, it ain't safe on the streets Concrete jungle, glad I got my mates with me

I won't fight for a cause I don't want to change the law Leave me alone, just leave me alone I want to get out on my own

I'm walking home tonight I only walk where there's lots of lights In the alleys and the doorways Some throw a bottle right in your face

Concrete jungle, animals are after me Concrete jungle, it ain't safe on the streets Concrete jungle, glad I got my mates with me

I'm walking home tonight I only walk where there's lots of lights In the alleys and the doorways Some throw a bottle right in your face

I won't fight for a cause I don't want to change the law Leave me alone, just leave me alone I want to get out on my own

Concrete jungle, animals are after me Concrete jungle, it ain't safe on the streets Concrete jungle, glad I got my mates with me

Do Nothing

Each Day I walk along this lonely street Trying to find, find a future New pair of shoes are on my feet Cos' fashion is my only culture

Nothing ever change, oh no Nothing ever change

People say to me just be yourself It makes no sense to follow fashion How could I be anybody else I don't try, I've got no reason

Nothing ever change, oh no Nothing ever change

I'm just living in a life without meaning I walk and walk, do nothing I'm just living in a life without feeling I talk and talk, say nothing

Nothing ever change, oh no Nothing ever change

I walk along this same old lonely street Still trying to find, find a reason Policeman comes and smacks me in the teeth I don't complain, it's not my function

Nothing ever change, oh no Nothing ever change

They're just living in a life without meaning I walk and walk, do nothing They're just playing in a life without thinking They talk and talk, say nothing I'm just living in a life without feeling I walk and walk, I'm dreaming I'm just living in a life without feeling I talk and talk, say nothing I'm just living in a life without meaning I walk and walk, do nothing

Do The Dog

All you punks and all you teds National Front and Natti dreds Mods, rockers, hippies and skinheads Keep on dancing 'till you're dead

Who am I to say? (x2) Am I just a hypocrite? Another piece of your bullshit Am I the dog the bit, the hand of the man that feeds it?

Do the dog, do the dog Do the dog, not the donkey Do the dog, don't be a jerk Do the dog, watch who you work for Do the do the do the do the dog Everybody's doing the dog

Take your FAA aggravation Fight it out on New Street station Master racial masturbation Causes National Front frustration

Who am I to say? To the IRA To the UDA Soldier boy from UK Am I just a hypocrite? Another piece of your bullshit Am I the dog the bit, the hand of the man that feeds it?

Do the dog, do the dog Do the dog, not the donkey Do the dog, don't be a jerk Do the dog, watch who you work for Do the do the do the do the dog (x3) Everybody's doing the dog

Enjoy yourself

Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink The years go by, as quickly as you wink Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think

Hello, I'm Terry, and I'm going to enjoy myself first

It's good to be wise when you're young 'Cos you can only be young but the once Enjoy yourself and have lots of fun So glad and live life longer than you've ever done

Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink The years go by, as quickly as you wink Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think

Never right, yes I know Get wisdom, knowledge and understanding These three, were given free by the maker Go to school, learn the rules, don't be no faker It's not wise for you to be a foot stool

Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink The years go by, as quickly as you wink Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think

Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink The years go by, as quickly as you wink Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think

Fantasize

Got this funny feeling going through my head That if I go down to the pub I might just end up in bed With a blond or a brunette or a red head or two But oh what am I saying that'll never happen to you

Can this be right? Can this be wrong? Doing what I'm doing all night long I love to brag, I love to boast And all the lads in the pub think I've had the most

You see 'cos I just love to fantasize All these thoughts I've got inside It can't be healthy what I'm doing I'd like to get them out my head Before I go blind in my bed

Time to change is days and she's heading for you She knows just what she wants and she knows what to do She drags you back to her place step over the toys The baby-sitters sleeping so we can't make much noise

It's been so long, I won't go fast Ejaculation, celebration here at last Pig in shit, cat and the cream I open up my eyes, but It's another wet dream

You see 'cos I just love to fantasize All these thoughts I've got inside It can't be healthy what I'm doing I'd like to get them out my head Before I go blind in my bed

I've had this funny feeling lying in my bed Someone's spreading rumours down the King's Head But I've got this reputation and I can't stop it now I'd like to be in heaven but this feels like hell

Can this be right? Can this be wrong? Doing what I'm doing all night long I love to brag, I love to boast And all the lads in the pub think I've had the most

You see 'cos I just love to fantasize I close my eyes she's always there Why am I living this nightmare? She's a darling in my eyes But I just love to fantasize

You see 'cos I just love to fantasize On my bed I always lie Same old blue book in my hand To the pictures I relate Is this my world is this my fate?

Fearful

Come let me tell you about the shotguns of Hillfields Let me tell you about the stenguns of Knightsbridge Let me tell you about the Moss Side barretta Let me tell you about the windows of my house

I'm not afraid of being afraid, I'm only fearful (x2)

Let me tell you about the bombs in the Arndale Let me tell you about the Welling election Let me tell you about the black church burning Let me tell you about the bat by my front door

I'm not afraid of being afraid, I'm only fearful (x2)

Don't talk to strangers Bolt your front door, don't make eye contact Buy a crook lock, wear your flak vest to the supermarket

It makes me shudder when I read the newspaper Have a career, learn to breed paranoia Me keep a watching on the rear view mirror Me no tell you where I keep my revolver

Come let me tell you about the security systems Let me tell you about the video surveillance Let me tell you about my new rotweiller Welcome to the siege mentality

I'm not afraid of being afraid, I'm only fearful (x4) Fearful, fearful, fearful

Friday Night, Saturday Morning

Out of bed at eight am Out my head by half past ten Out with mates and dates and friends That's what I do at weekends I can't talk and I can't walk But I know where I'm going to go I'm going watch my money go At the Locarno, no

When my feet go through the door I know what my right arm is for Buy a drink and pull a chair Up to the edge of the dance floor Bouncers bouncing through the night Trying to stop or start a fight I sit and watch the flashing lights Moving legs in footless tights

I go out on Friday night and I come home on Saturday morning (x2)

I like to venture into town I like to get a few drinks down The floor gets packed the bar gets full I don't like life when things get dull The hen party have saved the night And freed themselves from drunken stags Having fun and dancing in A circle round their leather bags

I go out on Friday night and I come home on Saturday morning (x2)

But two o'clock has come again It's time to leave this paradise Hope the chip shop isn't closed Cos' their pies are really nice I'll eat in the taxi queue Standing in someone else's spew Wish I had lipstick on my shirt Instead of piss stains on my shoes

I go out on Friday night and I come home on Saturday morning (x4)

Gangsters

Bernie Rhodes knows “Don't Argue”

Why must you record my phone calls? Are you planning a bootleg LP? Said you've been threatened by gangsters Now it's you, that's threatening me

Can't fight corruption with con tricks They use the law to commit crime And I dread, dread to think what the future will bring When we're living in gangster time

Don't call me scar face

Can't interrupt while I'm talking Or they'll confiscate all your guitars and catch 22 says if I sing the truth they won't make me an overnight star

Don't offer us legal protection They use the law to commit crime I dread to think what the future will bring When we're living in gangster time

Bernie Rhodes knows “Don't Argue”

Ghost Town

This town, is coming like a ghost town All the clubs have been closed down This place, is coming like a ghost town Bands won't play no more too much fighting on the dance floor

Do you remember the good old days before the ghost town? We danced and sang, and the music played inna de boomtown

This town, is coming like a ghost town Why must the youth fight against themselves? Government leaving the youth on the shelf This place, is coming like a ghost town No job to be found in this country Can't go on no more The people getting angry

This town, is coming like a ghost town (x3)

Hey, Little Rich Girl

Mum bought you a fur coat when you were fifteen You wore it to the disco, but everyone was in jeans

But you were a rich girl, and only having fun Your low cut dresses, brought stares from everyone Hey, little rich girl where did you go wrong?

You left for London, when you were nineteen Had to pull off your nice clothes, just living on dreams A man in the bright lights took all that you own Now he's taken your freedom for a fate unknown

But you were a rich girl, hardly having fun Your worn out dresses, brought stares from everyone Hey, little rich girl where did you go wrong?

Hey, little rich girl you've been away for so long And now little rich girl, my words are in this song Hey, little rich girl my love for you is gone And now little rich girl, I know where you went wrong

At your dad's office party all the movies were blue Caused him so much heart ache, because the screen star was you You left for London, when you were nineteen Had to pull off your nice clothes, but you were living on dreams

You were a rich girl, and only having fun But your worn out dresses, brought stares from everyone Hey, little rich girl where did you go wrong? (x3)

I Can't Stand It

When I woke up this morning alone in my bed In a cold room with damp sheets, and a pain in my head I saw you last night and you drove me insane Why must you hurt me again and again

I've had enough, if I don't come back for more that's tough 'Cos I can't stand it, the way you've planned it No I can't stand it any longer

Sometimes I get so I tired I can't get no sleep I'm so drunk I can't stand up on my own two feet I'm feeling so hungry I don't want to eat You make me so angry I can't even speak

I'll stay at home where I can be alone Because I just can't stand it, the way you've planned it No I can't stand it any longer

Try not to cry as I lie in the rain Feel like walking through walls just to get back home again I saw you last night and I'll see you again Maybe you're trying to drive me insane

I've had enough, if I don't come back for more that's tough 'Cos I can't take it any more I'm going home where I can be alone Because I just can't stand it, no I can't stand it No I can't stand it any longer

Goodnight Terry Goodnight Rhoda

International Jet Set

Good evening ladies and gentlemen This is your captain speaking Welcome aboard DC-10 flight number 1313 We will be cruising at a height of 25,000 feet at an air speed of 600 miles per hour Headphones will be provided by request for a varied program of in flight music

Have a good flight

Safety belts and sickness bags, jet lag downer pills duty free booze and fags make me feel ill A vapour trail from A to B, away from normal sanity It all seems so absurd to me

I've seen the carpets on the walls of hotels rooms around the world I never want to hear the screams of the teenage girls in other peoples dreams

Spread the disease, from the south China sea To the beach hotel Malibu Phone my girlfriend to ask her “How's her weekend?” I say “Hi, Terry here”, and she says “Terry who, the hell are you?”

The businessmen are having fun are they on a different plane to me I've lost touch with reality, they all seem so absurd to me Like well dressed chimpanzees

Spend and spend and spend and spend Will the muzak never end?

Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking Due to expected engine failures we will be forced to attempt an emergency landing Please remain seated, extinguish all cigarettes, and fasten safety belts Follow the emergency procedures laid out in the pamphlet located in front of your seats For normal breathing, oxygen masks will be released from the compartment above your head Please remain calm and follow the instructions of your stewardess at all times

This is a recording…

It Doesn't Make It alright

Just because you're nobody It doesn't mean that you're no good Just because there's a reason It doesn't mean it's understood

It doesn't make it alright (x2) It's the worst excuse in the world And it, it doesn't make it alright

Some people think they're really clever To smash your head against the wall Then they say “you got it my way” They really think they know it all

It doesn't make it alright (x2) It's the worst excuse in the world And it, it doesn't make it alright

Just because you're a black boy Just because you're a white It doesn't mean you've got to hate him It doesn't mean you've got to fight

It doesn't make it alright (x2) It's the worst excuse in the world And it, it doesn't make it alright

Just because you're nobody

It's Up To You

What you gonna do, when guests drop in on you? We won't go away, 'cos we've come out to stay

Stand there like parked cars if you want to We can't force you to enjoy this music Take it or leave it we'll carry on regardless If you don't like it you don't have to use it

It's up to you, up to you (x4)

Looks like a case of the blind leading the deaf to me You must be bored out of your pants Take it or leave it we'll carry on regardless If you don't like it you don't have to dance

It's up to you, up to you, black It's up to you, up to you, white It's up to you, up to you, unite It's up to you, up to you, or fight

In London town you can hear the youth them say “Take warning” It's up to you what you really wanna do For you were standing on the corner giving trouble When the policeman come he say you have to move on the double, yeah So, steppin' up the street with my little rude girl With her 'stay-pressed' to her ankles It's up to her what she really wants to do It's up to you, you and strictly you and you

What you gonna do, when morons come for you? They won't go away, they want the whole world painted grey

It's up to you, up to you (x4)

==== It's You ====

Going around causing disturbances Don't you know you'll never win You've got your family running around Trying to stop you from going down

It's you, that I'm talking to (x2)

Have you heard the latest news? About the boy who was shot and abused The funny thing is, that's not all It was your name that was called

It's you, that I'm talking to (x2)

Now you're accused of being a gunman Take your punishment, it's the law of the land Now let this be a lesson to you Rudy, I'm talking to you

It's you, that I'm talking to (x4)

You're going around causing disturbances Now didn't you know you could never win You had your family, they were running around Trying to stop you from going down

It's you, that I'm talking to (x2)

Keep On Learning

A prostitute to your art In debt before you start You've made your bed, don't lose your head Be careful of the sharks

Believe in what you're told You're worth your weight in gold Here comes the catch, you're on their patch Twice over you've been sold

It's a long long road could you get back home Old bridges you are burning There's time to kill when you pay the bill 'Cos boys must keep on learning

Keep on learning, got to keep on learning Keep on learning else your fingers get burned

Two years you were the star Pretty girls and fancy cars Now moneys gone, she won't hold on No free beer at the bar

Working for 'Burke & Hare' It's a business that doesn't care You've made your bed, don't lose your head Who said that life was fair?

It's a long long road could you get back home Old bridges you are burning There's time to kill when you pay the bill 'Cos boys must keep on learning

Keep on learning, got to keep on learning Keep on learning else your fingers get burned

Believe in what you're told You're worth your weight in gold Here comes the catch, you're on their patch Twice over you've been sold

Keep on learning, got to keep on learning Keep on learning else your fingers get burned

Leave It Out

It ain't safe to walk out tonight There's always someone ready to start a fight What did I do? What did I say? And did I look at you, the wrong way?

I don't know what's going on But instead of having fun, you're gonna spoil the night

So don't you tell me that you're sorry And don't you tell me it's all good

Leave it leave it leave it out If you're coming in for trouble then you know you're going out Leave it leave it leave it out What's the point of acting big just because there's a crowd

Stinking breath, and blood on your hands Another guilty feeling comes as you wake up What did you do? What did you say? And would you act the same the next day?

So don't you tell me that you're sorry And don't you tell me it's all good

Leave it leave it leave it out If you're coming in for trouble then you know you're going out Leave it leave it leave it out What's the point of acting big just because there's a crowd

It ain't safe to go out tonight There's always someone ready to start a fight What did I do? What did I say? And did I look at you, the wrong way?

So don't you tell me that you're sorry And don't you tell me it's all good

Leave it leave it leave it out If you're coming in for trouble then you know you're going out Leave it leave it leave it out What's the point of acting big just because there's a crowd Leave it leave it leave it out If you're coming in for trouble then you know you're going out Leave it leave it leave it out What's the point of acting big just because there's a crowd

Little Bitch

One, two

If you ever hear a noise in the night your body starts to sweat It shakes and shivers in fright You go and sleep with your mother, she hates your guts She knows that you love her so she holds you tight All through the night, until the broad daylight And when she doesn't come home you have to sleep alone Then you wet your bed, and I think that's sad For a girl of nineteen it's more than sad, it's obscene

One, two

And your girlfriend sweet little seventeen She's got her layered hair, and her flared jeans You know what that means? She's just a little queen She shares your London flat, she thinks that London's where it's at, although it stinks And when it rains you wear your hat, and your plum coloured PVC wet look maxi-mac You tie your ginger hair back in a bun You're the ugliest creature under the sun

one, two, go

And you think it's about time that you died, and I agree, so you decide on suicide You tried but you never quite carried it off You only wanted to die in order to show off And if you think you're gonna bleed all over me, you're even wronger than you'd normally be And the only things you want to see are kitsch The only thing you want to be is rich Your little pink up-pointed nose begins to twitch I know, you know, you're just a little bitch

One, two

Monkey Man

Aye aye aye, aye aye aye Let me tell you, huggin up the big monkey man (x2) I was on my way to Banbury Cross, Then I see a monkey upon a white horse With rings on he fingers, bells on him toes Sing a little song, wherever he be 'Cos he's a monkey, 'cos he's a honkey 'Cos he's a weedy little monkey man

Aye aye aye, aye aye aye Let me tell you, huggin up the big monkey man (x2)

No Big Deal

You've got to think for yourself, work it out You've got to know when to talk, when to shout You've got to know when to laugh, when to cry You've got to know when to stay, when to fly

It's no big deal To say how you feel Talk about it Talk about it now

You've got to know what is real, what is fake You've got to know when to give, when to take

It's no big deal To say how you feel Talk about it Talk about it now

Won't you talk to me for ever? Won't you make me understand?

Say it loud, don't hesitate Just say your piece, communicate When you're dead it's way to late It's way to late

Talk about it It's way to late

You've got to think for yourself, work it out You've got to know when to talk, when to shout You've got to know when to fight, when to run If they can't solve it then you reload your gun

It's no big deal To say how you feel Talk about it Talk about it now

Talk about it (x4)

Pearl's Cafe

You saw a woman in a cafe, lips of crimson, yellow grin Her shoes were wrong and she looked extremely thin Her jewels were faked, she'd had a rinse, her hair was greyish blue She looked ashamed when she explained to you

It ain't easy when there's no-one to lean on It ain't easy when there's nobody there It ain't easy when your lovers are all gone Nobody there, nobody cares

The pubs were closed she'd got nowhere to go when she'd spilled her tea Have you never thought “One day that could be me”?

Her temper changed, she looked so deranged, her perfume turned to gin You looked at her and she began to sing

It's all a load of bollocks (x3) And bollocks to it all

You tell me you think that they should lock her away and scrape the make-up off her skin Then we'd see the warts around her chin She tried to keep her looks but lost her mind when she lost her youth and grace

Your words were just an insult to her face

It ain't easy when there's no-one to lean on It ain't easy when there's nobody there It ain't easy when your lovers are all gone And bollocks to it all

When I first met you, I really thought you were a wet dream come true Now I know that you don't care, about somebody else's nightmare

Place In Life

Now Jack and Jill went up the hill to join the Labour right They couldn't pay the water bills, but that was alright They thought they'd get a buzz from being a member of the party So they could crash the ballot box, but that's another story

All I wanna be, something plain to see Nothing special but just a priority Just step back and see it's not the way to be You've got to find a place in life

A nursery rhyme is really like a politicians speech Makes as much sense as counting pebbles on a beach And if you don't believe me, then check the manifesto Just blah blah blah, and blah blah blah, the truth I don't think so

Rat Race

You're working at your leisure to learn the things you'll need The promises you make tomorrow will carry no guarantee I've seen your qualifications, you've got a Ph.D. I've got one art O level, it did nothing for me

Working for the rat race You know you're wasting your time Working for the rat race You're no friend of mine

You plan your conversation to impress the college bar Just talking about your Mother and Daddy's Jaguar Wear your political T-shirt and sacred college scarf Discussing the worlds situation but just for a laugh

Running Away

When you look, what do you see? You only see the monkey not the man in me But now I'm back, and that's a fact Gonna show the next generation where I'm at

What I mean is to say The way that I was is the same as I am today Now if you're white, or if you're black Remember you can't get the monkey off your back

And now you're running and you're running and you're running away You're running from the monkey man (x2)

I was lost, but now I'm found Some might even say that I've been around With the crowd I would move Mr. sophisticated just can't lose

Now in the style that I was dressed I was the steady reason no-one could test Yeah I was smart and I was cool No matter how hard they tried I was no-ones fool

And now you're running and you're running and you're running away You're running from the monkey man (x2)

Did you hear what I say? Now did you hear what I say?

Stand Up

I never thought life could be so cruel And now I have to break nearly every rule Just to get survive I need to get by

I get up in the morning and go to town There's nothing there so I just hang around Time passes by But I still have to try

Stand up for what you want, stand up for all your needs If you make your mind up, then you will succeed Stand up for what you want, stand up for all your needs If you make your mind up, then you will succeed

Been living here from day to day Now I found out it's the only way Where did I go wrong? My life carries on, yeah

Stereotype

He's just a stereotype He drinks his age in pints He has girls every night But he doesn't really exist

He spends his weekends with a load of blokes He forgets the punchline when he tells a joke He wants to stay out, he don't want to go home 'Til his nicotine fingers are stuffed down his throat

He's just a stereotype He drinks his age in pints He drives home pissed at night And he listens to his stereo

He blamed his fiancée when he caught VD The doctor said no drink for seventeen weeks He wants to go out but he has to stay home Sit in and watch colour TV on his own

He's just a stereotype He drinks his age in pints He drives home pissed at night And he listens to his stereo

The tablets are finished, the cure is complete He hasn't had a drink now for seventeen weeks Seventeen pints, tonight is the night It goes straight to his head, he ends up in a fight

Police chase him home through the dark rainy night Fluorescent jam sandwich with flashing blue light His mums waiting up, she hopes he's alright But he's wrapped round a lamp post on Saturday night

He's just a stereotype He drinks his age in pints He has girls every night He doesn't really exist

Tears In My Beer

Tears in my beer Well it just ain't clear I had a dream Well so it seems She's in the sun Not having fun And I'm standing here Just the lonely one

Tears in my beer Here comes another year Seen it all before Just like a closing door There was a time When she was mine Well it's so long ago Does she want to know?

I know you just think that I'm just singing the blues But I've got nothing to lose

Tears in my beer It's getting clear Her face I see Right next to me She's drinking wine And looking fine I'm feeling sad It's just a dream I had

I know you just think that I'm just singing the blues But I've got nothing to lose

Tears in my beer It just ain't clear I had a dream Well so it seems She's in the sun Just having fun While I'm standing here Tears in my beer

But she ain't here Tears in my beer

Stupid Marriage

Court in session. What do you mean 'Oy oy oy'? Must have court in session. Order. My name is Judge Roughneck, and I will not tolerate any disobedience in my courtroom. Rude boy, you have been brought in front of me and charged with smashing this woman's window. Before I sentence you, what have you got to say in your defense?

I was walking down the street one night When I saw her silhouette in her bathroom light Her way of life may be nothing to hide With her frosted glass shattered, curtains open wide

Naked woman, naked man, Where did you get that nice sun tan? You live in a castle built of sand Naked woman, naked man

Naked from your bath, you go naked to your bed And I can't stop the hatred running through my head

Silence in court. Order. Rude boy, you have led me to believe that you was going out with a girl, and she left you and married someone else. So you got drunk, and smashed up your ex-girlfriend's property. I have come to one conclusion, that is to sentence you to five months in prison.

Before they take you down to the cells, what have you got to say for yourself?

He wanted to be something but she knows he never will She's got him where she wanted and forgot to take her pill And he thinks that she'll be happy when she's hanging out the nappies If that's a happy marriage I'd prefer to be unhappy

Married woman, married man Where did you get that family plan? Mrs. Ewe and Mr. Ram Where did you get that lovely lamb?

Naked woman, naked man, where did you get that nice sun tan? Order in my courtroom Naked woman, naked man, where did you get that nice sun tan? Hush up Naked woman, naked man, where did you get that nice sun tan? (x6) Take him away

The Man With No Name

Out in the heat and the dust, well survival is tough When he puts out his hand, yeah he's an angry young man

You say he don't feel no pain 'cos he's the man with no name And the streets are his bed every night

And the boots on his feet, they walk a long lonely street To the Heartbreak Hotel, out on highway to hell

You say he don't feel no pain 'cos he's the man with no name And yet the streets are his bed every night

Oh why should we care? It's another world out there But could you change your point of view It could be me, it could be you

Under bushes in the park, and shop doorways after dark And all the losers and the lost, just surviving in Jack Frost

You say they don't feel no pain, all them people without no name And yet the streets are their bed every night

Say she don't feel no pain, when she's out there on the game Yeah she walks along this street every night

I say you don't feel no pain 'cos you're the man with no name And I wonder how you can sleep at night

Too Much Too Young

You've done too much much too young Now you're married with a kid when you could be having fun with me

You've done too much much too young Now you're chained to the cooker making currant buns for tea

oh no, no gimme no more pickni

Ain't you heard of the starving millions Ain't you heard of contraception Do you really a program of sterilization Take control of the population boom It's in your living room Keep a generation gap Try wearing a cap

Why?

Why did you try to hurt me? I got to know Did you really want to kill me Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why

Why do we have to fight? Why must we fight? I have to defend myself From attack last night

I know I am black You know you are white I'm proud of my black skin And you are proud of your white, so

Why did you try to hurt me? Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why Did you really want to kill me Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why

We don't need no British Movement Nor the Ku Klux Klan Nor the National Front It makes me an angry man

I just want to live in peace Why can't you be the same? Why should I live in fear? This fussing and fighting's insane

With a Nazi salute and a steel capped boot A Nazi salute and a steel capped boot You follow like sheep inna wolf clothes (x2) We chase you out the dance hall, we chase you through the door (x2) Cos' we can't take no more of this at all (x2) With a Nazi salute and a steel capped boot Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why You follow like sheep inna wolf clothes Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why

You're too scared to make a speech during the light Without a thousand police protecting your rights To threaten and abuse, incite or fight But who will protect me from you in the night?

Why did you try to hurt me? Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why Did you really want to kill me Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why

With a Nazi salute and a steel capped boot Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why You follow like sheep inna wolf clothes Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why

Too Hot

Why, me have to go leave that town yeah you know, 'cos it's too hot

Too hot, this town is too hot Now they're calling for their guns About to spoil the rude boys' fun But rude boys never give up their guns It's too hot

No man, can tell them what to do Pound for pound, they say they're ruder than you They are the boss, and no back down You might have a couple you like Choose your burial sight Take insurance, make up your will Come out and tell them, find them

The soldiers came back to you without them The police force are afraid, they can't even touch them They say “You think you're bad? Why don't you come out yourself” These boys are calling for a fight, fighting tonight they don't lie It's too hot

Too hot, too hot (x4)

You're wondering now, what to do, now you know this is the end

Curtain has fallen, now you're on your own I won't return, forever you will wait
