Drink to you, you always wished me well And those that don't go fuck yourself. 'Gospel' (c) R. Williams

Dear Eva Friedel
Got a brand new needle for you
You said weed was evil
So we smoked it in the lobby in the hotel foyer
It wasn’t even noon yet
We didn’t want to peak too soon yet
But when the sun goes down through the after glow
The night is yours, but your mother should never know

Auf Wiedersehen Berliner Star
You rock like a b.astard, plasteredYou should have seen her
Everything we did was wunderbar
‘Till God came between us and you fell for Jesus

Eva tore my heart out
I got wasted in action
But you know that I am a sucker for
instant satisfaction
There’s nothing more obscene now
than seeing where I’ve been
But you learn you know, to see the after glow
You’ve got to burn to grow, but your
mother should never know

Auf Wiedersehen Berliner Star
You rock like a b.astard, plastered
You should have seen her
Everything we did was wunderbar
‘Till God came between us and you fell for Jesus

You were everything, everything,
everything to me
You were everything, everything,
everything to me
You were everything, everything,
everything to me
You were everything, everything,
everything to me

Auf Wiedersehen Berliner Star
You rock like a b.astard, plastered
You should have seen her
Everything we did was wunderbar
‘Till God came between us and you fell for Jesus

everything, everything, everything to me
you were everything, everything,
everything to me
Everything we did was wunderbar
‘Till God came between us and you fell for Jesus

You were everything, thing, thing,
everything to me
I still love you, I do
Everything, everything, everything now

The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
But there’s no room
No space to rent in this town
You’re out of luck
And the reason if you got to care
The traffic’s stuck
And you’re getting nowhere
You thought you had a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace
It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it slip away
It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it slip away

You’re out on the road
But you’ve got no destination
You’re in the mud
In the maze of imagination
You love this town
Even if that doesn’t ring true
It’s been all over
And it’s been all over you

It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it slip away
It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away

Touch me
I know I’m not a hopeless case
Believe me
Take me to that other place
See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by the clouds
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colours came out

It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it slip away
It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away
Beautiful day
Don’t let it slip away
It’s a beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that special place
Touch me
I know I’m not a hopeless case

Gloomy Manchester
Always raining
Full of chippy minds
Entertaining
Groovy Madchester
Tune split the atom
0161
England’s Seattle

And I know I should have written it down
Its Southern comfort I forgot I knew somehow.
Last night this girl in my bed
I was telling her what I said
When all I had was potential
And a head full of dreadful
With a bag full of silly
Walking through Piccadilly
And I would anyway
Anyway

Who knew Worsley
Would do so much to hurt me
Parts of Manchester
Make me feel dirty
Hacienda
On a gay night
Droppin’ little fellas
To make me feel right

And I think about you now and then
When I’m talking towns to my friends
Last night this girl in my bed
I was telling her what I said
when all I had was potential
and a head full of dreadful
with a bag full of silly
Walking through Piccadilly
And I would anyway
Anyway

We’re all made out of places
And I’ve been to a few
What I need now
Is an aerial view
‘Cause I can see for myself
That I can see for myself
But oh
Anyway
Anyway

I would like to go to Manchester
Two miles ?up rare range?
A500 M6
And just close my eyes
Close my eyes
Close my eyes

Last night this girl in my bed
I was telling her what I said
When all I had was potential
And a head full of dreadful
With a bag full of silly
Walking through Piccadilly
And I would anyway
Anyway

Tom Jones:
Hey Robbie, are you ready to whiz?
Robbie Williams:
I’m always ready, Tom, you know, ha?
Tom Jones:
I think you were born ready!

I was born long ago
I’m the chosen, I’m the one
I have come to save the day
And I won’t leave until I’m done
And that’s why we’ve got to try
You got to breathe and have some fun
Though I’m not paid I play this game
And I won’t stop until I’m done
But what I really want to know is
Are you gonna go my way?
And I got to got to know

I don’ t know why we always cry
We must leave and get undone
We have to change and rearrange
And turn this planet back to one
So tell me why we got to die
And kill each other one by one
We’ve got to love and rub-a-dub
We’ve got to dance and fall in love
But what I really want to know is
Are you gonna go my way?
And I got to got to know

Robbie Williams:
Is that you telling it like it is?
Tom Jones:
Yeah, exactly!
Yeah
Aha
Yeah
Tom Jones:
Ah, turn the guitar, son!
Robbie Williams:
Come on!

Wooh
Yeah
Wooh
Yeah
Wooh
Yeah
Wooh
Yeah
What I really wanna know is
Are you gonna go my way?
But I got to got to know
I got to know

Come into the parish of wisdom
But leave your nervous system
With the bouncer on the door

Sell your innocence
For a decade of decadence
Everything all at once all the time is yours

Don’t believe in Jesus Christ
Since I believed in your cocaine
All that praying and wailing will leave a stain
So take your Sunday songs and shove it

Hey now, my baby, maybe now we’re free
With the appliance of science,
We can be anyone, we want to be

They’ll come bearing you
And charge the earth for it
If you’re lucky they’ll let you breathe

So scream as you go faster
If that’s the world you’re after
But make sure you’re home for tea

Don’t believe in clever people
Clever people drop the bomb
Don’t believe your big and evil
They’re aliens
So take your rocket science and shove it

Hey now, my baby, maybe now we’re free
With the appliance of science,
we can be anyone, we want to be

Asi es la ley,
Hay un angel hecho para mi
Te conoci, el tiempo se me fue tal como llego
Y te falle, te hice dano tantos anos yo,
Pase por todo sin pensar, te ame sin casi amar
Y al final quien me salvo
El angel que quiero yo

De nuevo tu, te cuelas en mis huesos
Dejandome tu beso junto al corazon
Y otra vez tu abriendome tus alas
Me sacas de las malas rachas de dolor
Porque tu eres el angel que quiero yo

Cuando estoy fatal, ya no se que hacer, ni a donde ir
Me fijo en ti, y te siento cerca pensando en mi
El cuerpo se me va hacia donde tu estas
Mi vida cambio el angel que quiero yo

De nuevo tu, te cuelas en mis huesos
Dejandome tu beso junto al corazon
Y otra vez tu abriendome tus alas
Me sacas de las malas rachas de dolor
Porque tu eres el angel que quiero yo

De nuevo tu, te cuelas en mis huesos
Dejandome tu beso junto al corazon
Y otra vez tu abriendome tus alas
Me sacas de las malas rachas de dolor
Porque tu eres el angel que quiero yo

I know you wanna leave me,
But I refuse to let you go
If I have to beg and steal for your sympathy,
I don’t really mind but you mean that much to me

Ain’t too proud to beg, darling
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go
Ain’t to proud to plead, baby, baby
Please don’t leave me, girl, don’t you go

Now I heard a cryin’ man,
Is half a man with no sense of pride
But if I have to cry to keep you,
I don’t mind weepin’ if it’ll keep you by my side

Ain’t to proud to beg, sweet darling
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go
Ain’t to proud to plead, baby, baby
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go

Check it out

Now I have a love so deep in the pit of my heart
And each day it grows more and more
I’m not ashamed to come and plead to you baby
If pleadin’ keeps you from walkin’ out that door

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go
Ain’t to proud to plead, baby, baby
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go
Ain’t too proud to beg

Thank you
Good night

I met her in a club down in old Soho
Where you drink champagne and it taste just like cherry cola
C-O-L-A cola
She walked up to me, and she asked me to dance
And when I asked her her name, in a dark brown voice, she said, «Lola»
L-O-L-A Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola

Well, I’m not the world’s most physical guy
But when she squeezed me tight, she nearly broke my spine, oh my Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
Well, I’m not dumb, but I can’t understand
Why she walk like a woman and talk like a man, oh my Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola

Well, we drank champagne and danced all night
Under electric candlelight
She picked me up and sat me on her knee
And said, «Dear boy, won’t you come home with me?»
Well, I’m not the world’s most passionate guy
When I looked in her eyes, I almost fell for my Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola

Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
L-O-L-A Lola
Well, I pushed her away
I walked to the door
I fell to the floor
I got down on my knees
Then I looked at her and she at me

Well, that’s the way that I want it to stay
And I always want it to be that way for my Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
It’s a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world, ‘cept for Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola

Well, I left home just a week before
I never ever kissed a woman before
But Lola smiled and took me by the hand
And said, «Dear boy, I’m gonna make you a man»

Well, I’m not the world’s most masculine man
But I know what I am and I’m glad I’m a man
And so is Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
L-O-L-A Lola

Lola
L-O-L-A Lola
L-O-L-A Lola
Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola

Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola

Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola

Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola

The only one I know, has come to take me away
The only one I know, is mine when she stitches me
The only one I see, has found an aching in me
The only one I see, has turned her tongue into me

Everyone has been burned before, everybody knows the pain

He only one I know, never cries, never open her eyes
The only one I know, wide awake and then she’s away
The only one I see, is mine when she walks down our street
The only one I see, has carved her way in to me

Everyone has been burned before, everybody knows the pain
Everyone has been burned before, everybody knows the pain

Everyone has been burned before, everybody knows the pain
Everyone has been burned before, everybody knows the pain

Everyone has been burned before, everybody knows the pain
Everyone has been burned before, everybody knows the pain

[Verse 1]
Girl, come on over here
Let me hold you for a little while
And remember I’ll always love you
Forever, everything changes but you

[Pre-Chorus]
We’ve said goodbye, the taxi cab is waiting
Now don’t you cry, just one more kiss
Before I have to go
Hey, girl I know the situation changed
And so much is new but something in my life
Remains the same ’cause

[Chorus] (x2)
Everything changes but you
We’re a thousand miles apart
But you know I love you
Everything changes but you
You know everything single day
I’ll be thinking about you

[Verse 2]
The rumors true, you know that there’ve been others
What can I do, I tell you baby they don’t mean a thing
Now girl don’t go and throw our love away
I’ll be home soon back in your arms to hear you say that

[Chorus] (x2)
Everything changes but you
We’re a thousand miles apart
But you know I love you
Everything changes but you
You know everything single day
I’ll be thinking about you

[Bridge]
Though everything changes around us
(Baby don’t you cry)
We will be the same as before more

[Chorus] (x3)
Everything changes but you
We’re a thousand miles apart
But you know I love you
Everything changes but you
You know everything single day
I’ll be thinking about you

I won’t let you down
I will not give you up
Gotta have some faith in the sound
It’s the one good thing that I’ve got

I won’t let you down
So please don’t give me up
Because I would really, really love to stick around, stick around

Heaven knows I was such a young boy
I didn’t know what I wanted to be

I was every little hungry schoolgirl’s pride and joy
And I guess it was enough for me

To win the race? A prettier face
Brand new clothes and a big fat place
On your rock and roll TV

But today the way I play the game has got to change
Oh yeah
And now I’m gonna get me so happy

I think there’s something you should know
I think it’s time I told you so
There’s something deep inside of me
There’s someone else I’ve got to be
Take back your picture in a frame
Take back your singing in the rain
I just hope you understand
Somehow the clothes do not make the man
All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don’t belong to you
And you don’t belong to me yeah yeah

(Freedom) I won’t let you down
(Freedom) I will not give you up
(Freedom) You’ve gotta have some faith in the sound
(You’ve gotta give for what you take) it’s the one good thing that I’ve got
(Freedom) I won’t let you down
(Freedom) So please don’t give me up
(Freedom) Because I would really really love to stick around, stick around
(You’ve gotta give for what you take)

Heaven knows we sure had some fun boy
What a kick just my buddies and me

(What a kick just my buddies and me)
We won the race
Got out of the place
I went back home got a brand new face
For the boys on MTV (boys on MTV)

But today the way I play the game has got to change
Oh yeah
And now I’m gonna get myself happy
I think there’s something you should know
I think it’s time I stopped the show
There’s something deep inside of me
There’s someone I forgot to be
Take back your picture in a frame
Don’t think that I’ll be back again
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes do not make the man

All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don’t belong to you
And you don’t belong to me yeah yeah

(Freedom) I won’t let you down
(Freedom) I will not give you up
(Freedom) You’ve gotta have some faith in the sound
(You’ve gotta give for what you take) it’s the one good thing that I’ve got
(Freedom) I won’t let you down
(Freedom) So please don’t give me up

(Freedom) Because I would really really love to stick around, stick around
(You’ve gotta give for what you take)

Well it looks like the road to heaven
But it feels like the road to hell
And when you shake your ass
They notice fast
Some mistakes were built to last
That’s what you get
That’s what you get
I just hope you understand sometimes the clothes do not make the man
All we have to see now
Is that I don’t belong to you
And you don’t belong to me yeah yeah

(repeat chorus)

Baby
You can pack away the moon
And pour away the ocean
You can take apart the sun
And run from everyone
You can blow out all the stars
But I know the day will come
When love unchains your soul
And you’ll take the long walk home

Hello baby
Haven’t seen you for a while
There’s a shadow on your face
A lie in your smile
You sent the world away
Everything’s just fine
But there’s a cry for help
Behind your eyes

Baby
You can pack away the moon
And pour away the ocean
You can take apart the sun
And run from everyone
You can blow out all the stars
But I know the day will come
When love unchains your soul
And you’ll take the long walk home
Another 5 A.M
The cancer crawls
And you’re pressed against
An invisible wall
And all the bottles are dry
And the CD’s stuck
Keep hearing Johnny sing
All you need is love

Baby
You can pack away the moon
And pour away the ocean
You can take apart the sun
And run from everyone
You can blow out all the stars
But I know the day will come
When love unchains your soul
And you’ll take the long walk home

And you can sleep the longest night
I believe you’ll wake in time
To open the window wide
And breathe the brilliant light

Baby
You can pack away the moon
And pour away the ocean
You can take apart the sun
And run from everyone
You can blow out all the stars
But I know the day will come
When love unchains your soul
And you’ll take the long walk home
Baby
You can light the fires of hell
And wrestle with the angels
You can pull down heaven’s blue
And tear yourself in two
Before we blow each candle out
Reach into the dark
There’ll be a hand to hold
And we’ll take the long walk home

Baby gonna walk so slow
Through the clear white snow
I won’t let your soul be broken

Baby gonna walk so slow
Through the clear white snow
I won’t let your soul be broken
Yeah

[Verse 1]
In this day and age we forget that we’re animals
Any wonder we’re all so alone
Mama, I feel so ashamed, we’re just cannibal
I didn’t make it but the bed is my home
And someone told me

[Chorus]
The dog said to the bird
«Do you sing the same song every day of your life?»
But she don’t say a word
She just swings on her thing and she sings

[Verse 2]
The writing that’s there on the wall is eligible
The wrong answer etched on my brain
Venus and Mars are now further apart than they’ve ever been
We better face it, we’re just not the same
Then I remember

[Chorus]
The dog said to the bird
«Do you sing the same song every day of your life?»
But she don’t say a word
She just swings on her thing and she sings

[Verse 3]
Oh what a shame all the trouble we went though for second place
Now they’re selling space on the moon
Speaking in tongues we don’t know what’s been said till the morning comes
You better worry, there’s a storm coming soon
Still recalling

[Chorus x2]
The dog said to the bird
«Do you sing the same song every day of your life?»
But she don’t say a word
She just swings on her thing and she sings

Baby when you’re coming down
I could get to slum around you
If I got my talking right
Maybe I’ll be someone who’ll do
When I met you should have told me
You were somebody else
But you didn’t make a sound
If you look so good
Why don’t you sleep with yourself?
And entertain yourself

Don’t like sunlight
Too bright, not nice
But I like how you’re taking it in

If they could come for me right now
I won’t go
And if there’s such a chance they’ll come for you
Then I’ll know
I’ll get you

Nothing super serious
Super sweet mysterious you
I could over analyze
Everything that you do
Would you know it was love if we made it
Or a fantasy of mine
All the cemeteries there for the taking
Maybe I can move aside
Don’t like sunlight
Too bright, not nice
But I like how you’re taking it in

And if they could come for me right now
I won’t go
And if there’s such a chance they’ll come for you
Then I’ll know

Don’t like sunlight
Too bright, not nice
But I like how you’re taking it in

Don’t like sunlight
Too bright, not nice
But I like how you’re taking it in

And if they could come for me right now
I won’t go
And if there’s such a chance they’ll come for you
Then I’ll know

And if they could come for me right now
I won’t go
And if there’s such a chance they’ll come for you
Then I’ll know
I’ll get you

[Verse 1]
She smiled at me and she said «you’re cute»
I dig you, baby, but I don’t shoot
Seven pheasants in the boot for the Queen
I’d hardly die for an OBE
It’s only power when you’re five foot three
I think pleasantries are really key with the Queen

[Chorus]
We love our Queen
The Queen
The Queen
The Queen
The Queen
The Queen
The Queen
Ba-doo, you are the Queen
The Queen
The Queen
The Queen
The Queen
The Queen
Ba-doo-a

[Verse 2]
I sear the queen with a serenade
We’re making love in a motorcade
In our glass it’s not just lemonade
The Queen
Lizzie-whizzie, can I be your bloke?
I know lots of famous folk
One of them nearly let me go on his boat
‘Cause he’s a queen
(Just one moment)

[Chorus]
We love our Queen
The Queen
The Queen
The Queen
The Queen
The Queen
The Queen
Ba-doo you are the Queen
The Queen
The Queen
The Queen
The Queen
The Queen
Ba-doo-a

[Verse 3]
Said she looked good in her bearskin cap
The curtain’s closed, so we don’t get packed
The Duke of Edinburgh’s also tapped the Queen
I took her corgies for a walk
Then bumped into the Duke of York
He asked me, could he have a talk with the Queen
(That’s his mom!)

[Chorus]
We love our Queen
The Queen
The Queen
Ba-boo you are
The Queen
The Queen
The Queen
Ba-boo you are
The Queen
The Queen
The Queen
Ba-boo you are
The Queen

Did you do that girl that was in that soap
….. Did ya
Will you save the whale
Will you be Bob Hope…. Will ya
I’ll tell you about my Pepsi deal if you like
A celebrity village bike with a mike
I get more press when there’s a war on

Come sing a song with me
A simple symphany
I’ll be your karaoke star
Lush strings and Timpani
Have got it in for me
Look how i’m dancing…love

Justify what you get paid..Can ya
Doctors save lives and you get layed
…Dont ya
Apologise for the job that you do
It would be nice if you were talented too
I think you better lock up your daughter

Come sing a song with me
My simple symphany
I’ll be your kareoke star
Lush strings and Timpani
Have got it in for me
Look how im dancing…love
(Instrumental & soft spoken words)

Everyone say I’m pretty
Everyone say I’m handsome

I am the sum total of my ancestors
I carry their DNA
We are representatives of a long line of people
And we cart them around everywhere
This long line of people
That goes back to the beginning of time
And when we meet — they meet other lines of people
And we say: bring together the lines of me

When I look back over the years
At the things that brought tears to my eyes
Papa said we have to be wise
To live long lives
Now I recognize
What my father said before he dies
Vocalize things I’ve left unsaid
Left my spirit unfed for too long
I’m coming home to my family
Where I can be strong
Be who I planned to be
Within me my ancestry
Givin’ me continuity
Would it be remiss to continue in this way
Would you rather I quit
Come with that other shit
Making people’s hips sway
Lip service I pay, but I’m nervous
I pray for all the mothers who get no sleep
Like a lifeline, I light lines
‘Cause my compassion is deep
For the people who fashioned me, my soul to keep
And this is who I happen to be
And if I don’t see that I’m strong, then I won’t be
This is what my Daddy told me
I wished he would hold me
A little more
Than he did
But he taught me my culture
And how to live positive
I never want to shame
The blood in my veins and bring pain
To my sweet grandfather’s face
In his resting place
I made haste to learn and not waste
Everything my forefathers earned in tears
For my culture
Fall back again
Crawl from the warm water
(For my culture)
Water to air
You’re on your feet again
Your feet again
Hello Dad
Remember me?
I’m the man you thought I’d never be
I’m the boy who you
Reduced to tears
Dad, I’d been lonely for 27 years
Yeah, that’s right
My name Rob
I’m the one
Who landed the popstar’s job
I’m the one who
You told look, don’t touch
I’m the kid
Who wouldn’t amount too much
I believe in the senses that I sound
I have always been too loud
Won’t you help me drown it out?
And When I feel
What I’m feeling is so real
I’m a massive spinnin’ wheel
Always digging in my heels
Now I got the faith to
Fall back again
Crawl from the warm water
Water to air
You’re on your feet again
Your feet again
Ha, lace up your booty
Going back to the roots, continue my interlude
Feed freakin’ for loot
And my spell’s been to check what your future brings is now
And your forefathers further know how
But now, what happened to the world without the hatred
Use your head, if the needle is wise, be the thread
And weave ancestral wisdom, yours by best
Spreading the Lord’s word over this broad Earth
This is what my Daddy told me
I wished he would hold me
A little more
Than he did
But he told me my culture
And how to live positive
I never want to shame
The blood in my veins and bring pain
To my sweet grandfather’s face
In his resting place
I make haste to learn and not waste
Everything my forefathers earned in tears
For my culture
Fall back again
Crawl from the warm water
Water to air
You’re on your feet again
Your feet again
(For my culture)
Fall back again
Crawl from the warm water
Water to air
Your on your feet again
Your feet again
(For my culture)

Wake up in the middle of
The thunder of a scream
And you realise that it was yours
You don’t know what to tell them
‘Cause you don’t know where you’ve been
And you’ve been there so many times before

It’s only natural to feel like you’re sinking
It’s only human to be so unprepared

Don’t worry baby, if you get a little high
It’s just a phase to get you through getting by
So you get a little restless and you get a little wasted
It’s just a little lite entertainment
Embrace it, it might just save your life

You always say you’re sorry
But you never know what for
And it’s been happening more and more
Act your age and not your shoe size
And blah blah blah blah blah
That’s your role model slam the door

So it’s only natural to feel the guilt of a nation
It’s only human when you’re young you’re gonna cry
Don’t worry baby, if you get a little high
It’s just a phase to get you through getting by
So you get a little restless and you get a little wasted
It’s just a little lite entertainment
Embrace it, it might just save your life

So where else can you go to
‘Cause no one’s given you the book
About what to say and how to feel and what you
Should and shouldn’t have took

It’s feelings that you fearing that’s why
You step outside your mind
Don’t look back ’cause if you don’t crack
You get to sing this lulaby
You get to sing this lulaby

Don’t worry baby, if you get a little high
It’s just a phase to get you through getting by
So you get a little restless and you get a little wasted
It’s just a little lite entertainment
Embrace it

Don’t worry baby, if you get a little high
It’s just a phase to get you through getting by
You do lots of complaining and do nothing to change it
Well that’s a little light entertainment
Embrace it, it just might save your life
Or it just might change your life

I like to reminisce about a time I’ve never had
A book that no one read
A film that never made me sad
And you remind me of a place I’ve never been
And something no one said
When I was 17

One fine day
In the middle of the night
You’ll wake up in it
One fine day
In the middle of the night
But you probably won’t admit it

Remember when we never struggled through
A bad time we never had
A love we never fell into
Please don’t remind me to forget
Cause forgiveness is a place
I ain’t got used to yet

One fine day
In the middle of the night
You’ll wake up in it
One fine day
In the middle of the night
But you probably won’t admit it
All I ever wanted
Was to radiate your home
But I guess it doesn’t matter

So come reminisce about a time we didn’t have
I hear there’s a sequel to that film that never made you sad
Don’t rewrite my history
Cause you’ll never really know
How much you didn’t mean to me

One fine day
In the middle of the night
You’ll wake up in it
One fine day
In the middle of the night
But you probably won’t admit it

[Verse 1]
With all the will in the world
I’m still powerless
I found myself breaking the girl
The king is half undressed

[Pre-Chorus 1]
She’s not my saviour
(I don’t want your love)
Don’t take my seed
(It’s not your love that I need)
You’re in no danger caressing me
But you’re talking to a man I’m not supposed to be

[Chorus]
And the clothes remain the same
I fear to face the walk of shame
Been nice to know you
I’m soaking in the morning rain
Find my car, forgot your name
Been nice to hold you

[Verse 2]
Don’t feel small when I don’t call
If I could talk I’d tell you
If I ever did, don’t answer kid
I’ve only lies to sell you

[Pre-Chorus 2]
I’ll be your stranger
(I don’t want your love)
If you’re in need
(It’s not your love that I need)
It’s odd behaviour seducing me
I’m a million miles away and she’s too blind to see

[Chorus]
And the clothes remain the same
I fear to face the walk of shame
Been nice to know you
I’m soaking in the morning rain
Find my car, forgot your name
Been nice to hold you

[Bridge]
Step on board the gravy train
Same old faces, different names
You bet your life I will complain
Cause I’m a sensitive boy
The real McCoy
Don’t wanna stick me on your bed post
And I never really will forget you
I’m sorry, dear, have I met you
All that you take from me
Is coffee and tea and sympathy

[Chorus]
And the clothes remain the same
I fear to face the walk of shame
Been nice to know you
I’m soaking in the morning rain
Find my car, forgot your name
Been nice to hold you

[Outro]
I have my needs
I hope she leaves
(All that you take from me
Is coffee and tea and sympathy)
I have my needs
I hope she leaves
(All that you take from me
Is coffee and tea and sympathy)

[Chorus]
And the clothes remain the same
I fear to face the walk of shame
Been nice to know you
I’m soaking in the morning rain
Find my car, forgot your name
Been nice to hold you

I don’t remember receiving your postcard
I never got much post
So it shouldn’t have been too hard
You were on holiday with your school
In some French town
And while you were away
I took Debbie to the crown

I feel as though all the past is closing in on me
I found a photograph
Of me and Kimberley

I found your postcard
And I put it on the wall
I found your picture
You know tears were bound to fall
I didn’t write your songs
When we were going out
So why should I start now
You are not about

I feel as though all the past in closing in on me
I found a photograph
Of me and Kimberley

We hardly used to even drink
We didn’t smoke
We’d walk home from the pub
Cause we were always broke
So when your mother called
And said that you were dead
I thought she’s talking of
Another Kim instead
I feel as though all the past is closing in on me
I found a photograph
Of me and Kimberley

She said it seemed
You accidentally overdosed
It was so long since I talked to her
And once we were so close
And I am left with all these things
I didn’t say
And a picture of you in my arms
The day you went away

I feel as though all the past is closing in on me
I found a photograph
Of me and Kimberley
I feel as though all the past is closing in on me
I found a photograph
Of me and Kimberley

Liberate a whale
Liberate Wales
Liberate abortion
Liberate males
I don’t mind
Ban the bomb
Bang a gong
Ban fake fur
Put a real one on
I don’t mind

Oh my head
I’m moving to the Med
Those cats know how to boogie
This E’s done nothing to me
Her retort was just a passing thought
Put the munchies down now Scooby
I’m leaving in an hour
You better do me now

Prosecute Ghandi
Persecute God
Elevate Bono
Eliminate Rod
I don’t care
World War 4
The Beatles tour
And Chernobyl fallout
Global warming
I don’t care
Oh my head
I’m moving to the Med
Those cats know how to boogie
This pill’s done nothing to me
Her retort was just a passing thought
Put the munchies down now Scooby
I gotta catch a plane
You’d better do me now

In for me, in for me
You’ve all got it in for me
In for me, in for me
Don’t tell me a story kid
You fucking bore me

Oh my head
I’m moving to the Med
Those cats know how to boogie
This speed’s done nothing to me
Her retort was just a fleeting thought
Put the munchies down now Scooby
Going in an hour
You better do me

Oh my head
I’m gonna stay in bed
This cat don’t wanna boogie
The pills just pass right through me
Her retort was just a fleeting thought
Put the Scooby snacks down, Dooby
I’m getting on a plane
You better do me now

The year before I thought of leaving
I can’t remember what I did
Us in bed in Maida Vale basements
When you left
Westend winters
High heel clatters
Morning dawning
Nothing matters

When we took a cab
Back when cabs had somewhere to go
And we’d meet the stars
When stars were people you’d want to know
We were new to fame
Woaooh oh oh oh
I’m so glad you came

Some of us fell by the wayside
Others had it and threw it away
Some carried on pretending
That it was not ending today
Once admired
Oh so tired
Lose it all
In the night time
And we took a cab
Back when cabs had somewhere to go
And we’d meet the stars
When stars were people you’d want to know
We were new to fame
I’m so glad I came

It took me years to find my own song
And for years I thought I’d just sing along
But the words were wrong
A tune that is true lives on and on
It will still be here when I’m gone

And we took a cab
Back when cabs had somewhere to go
And we’d meet the stars
When stars were people you’d want to know
We were new to fame
Wo oho hoh
I’m so glad we came

And we’d take a cab
Back when cabs had somewhere to go
And we’d meet the stars
When stars were people you’d want to know
We were new to fame
Wo oho hoh
I’m so glad I came

Don’t…
Don’t stop talking
‘Cause when you start gain
It won’t make sense

Don’t..
Don’t stop breathing
You’ve got to carry on
Despite the evidence
‘Cause we.. we’ll fall in love
Because we need.. to fall in love

Chorus:
I am here
Dumb enough to care too much
And young enough to believe in love
Where are you?
Overdose on liberty
I was never meant to be that free…
So.. I believe.. that you… and I..
Must go out

Don’t..
Don’t stop walking
‘Cause when you start again
Nothing starts again
And don’t…
Don’t stop singing
When you start a song
Sing it to the end
‘Cause we.. we’ll fall in love
Because we need.. to fall in love

Chorus:
I am here
Dumb enough to care too much
And young enough to believe in love
Where are you?
Overdose on liberty
I was never meant to be that free…
So.. I believe.. that you… and I..
Must go out

As sure as men created God
We were meant to be in love
I’m sure if God created us
He’d realise
That we are right
We must go out tonight

Chorus:
I am here
Dumb enough to care too much
And young enough to believe in love
Where are you?
Overdose on liberty
I was never meant to be that free…
So.. I believe.. that you… and I..
Must go out

Ooh oh
Must go out tonight
Yeah yeah
Must go out tonight
Ooh oh
Must go out tonight
I’m right
Must go out Tonight

When we were only 17
And thrown into society
That was the end of you and me
From what we could have been

And if we didn’t keep in touch
I guess we didn’t care that much
We never understood that stuff
But now I need you

I never meant to let you down
But lettin’ you down was easy

Didn’t it break your heart
Maybe I’m just too needy
Do any of you still need me
In your lives, in your heart
Don’t say yes just to please me
If you’re still you and you aren’t
But don’t say no

We fought together, laughed together
Said things that we hoped were clever
The thought of missing you forever
Makes me wanna cry
And now that you’ve grown up to be
A sentimental memory
Are you still you cause I’m still me
At least I hope so
A life beginning somewhere else
It was our time to die

Didn’t it break your heart
Maybe I’m just too needy
Do any of you still need me
In your life, in your heart
Don’t say yes just to please me
If you’re still you and you aren’t
Don’t say no

So, what do you know
Where do you go
Has it been fun
Oh did you survive being buried alive
Like I did

Didn’t it break your heart
Maybe I’m just too needy
Do any of you still need me
In your life, in your heart
Don’t say yes just to please me
If you’re still you and you want
Don’t say no

Didn’t it break your heart
Maybe I’m just too needy
Do any of you still need me
In your life, in your heart
Don’t say yes just to please me
If you’re still you and then you aren’t
Don’t say no

Vacant in a photograph waiting
This isn’t just a hurricane
When you know what’s coming
It’s a Soul Transmission

As we walk through history together
Do you think we still come from
This world we live on?
It’s a soul condition

How’s it feel?
What you want me to say?
Cos it feels like being alone
On Christmas Day

Pretty soon the world will start shaking
Living in a tremolo
And I don’t get injured
In my Soul Transmission

How does it feel?
What you want me to say?
I said it feels like being alone
On Christmas Day

Sights and sounds
At the end of the day
Make me feel like being alone
On Christmas Day
Go keep it up
It’s your Soul Transmission
Go keep it up
It’s your Soul Transmission
Go keep it up
It’s your Soul Transmission
Go keep it up
It’s your Soul Transmission

Waiting in an empty cathedral
To look at what I’m running from
And I don’t get nervous
It’s a Soul Transmission

How does it feel?
What do you want me to say?
I said I feel like being alone
On Christmas Day

Sights and sounds
At the end of the day
Make you feel like being
Alone on Christmas Day

Carry my coffin in the rain
Leave the reeds in the dirt with my name
Everything’s unwinding and I can’t wind it back

There’ll be no Christmas anymore
No tiny footsteps at our door
I hope their memories don’t fade
Just like the promise we made

Let the rings fall from our fingers
As if they were never worn
The presence of love still lingers in every gift on the
Floor
I know you were a friend to me
But I lose myself in company

There’ll be no Christmas anymore
No tiny footsteps at our door
I hope their memories don’t fade
Just like the promise we made

But Lord knows that I was wrong
‘Cause the guilt follows me around
One day you’ll be glad I’m gone
‘Cause I’m over now
There’ll be no Christmas anymore
No tiny footsteps at our door
And nothing left of us remains
Just like the promise we made

She’s like a mannequin
She like oh my god I’m back again
She’s like puzzlin’
She freaks out when she can’t stay thin

She’s like a mannequin
Makes me feel like a man again
With a masculine mandolin
She’s just like a mannequin

I’m a white man in Hanoi

You be the preacher
I’ll read the subtexts
Spare me the bullshit
(What it is you know)

Divine intervention
Misguided direction
Is my new obsession
(Everything I know)

I’m a white man in Hanoi

Cruising down the Saigon
With a little girl on my lap
She had just a touch of Jesus
And you know how I like that
I’m a white man in Hanoi

Bail me out
Deal me in
Strike my down
Back again

Shoot me up
Tell your friends
Play the boy
She’s the man

White man in Hanoi
White in Hanoi

I’m a white man in Hanoi

I’m a white man in Hanoi

Your Dad just called and said you gotta go home
Can’t a man get a girl of his own?
And something hit me when I got off the phone
It went…

You got something you wanna say then just say it
I can have ’em and I hate them all
You know I love this life and I’m toying
See my collar, I can collar myself
If you don’t love this record don’t play it
I can have ’em and I hate them all
I think I like it more, can I…
Throw a signal to the back of the dome
Can’t a man get a girl of his own?

(On my own)
I’m on my own again
(Waiting for a friend to show)
Just waiting for a friend to show
(Just about ready to go)
Just about ready to go
(On my own)
On my own

Why d’you have to go and sit where I’m sat
I’m in the kitchen and I’m chasing a rat
‘Cause every time I go and worry the cat
It goes…
They think I like myself can I say it
I can have ’em and I hate them all
I say I love myself but I’m toying
See my collar, I can collar myself
Just like that night we had them are psychic
I can have ’em and I hate them all
I had to walk you home cause you…
I wasn’t checking with the checking myself
So what you’re saying isn’t bad for my health

(On my own)
On my own
(Waiting for a friend to show)
Just waiting for a friend to show
(Just about ready to go)
Just about ready to go
(On my own)
On my own
Ain’t nobody should be living alone
I believe there’s nothing left to its own
And every doggy should be given a bone
To go…

This city loves itself but I’m saying
I can have ’em and I hate them all
I think I’d like it more if I’m walking with you
See my collar, I can collar myself
If you could live my life would you take it
I can have ’em and I hate them all
Then maybe we got time for some…
Cup of sugar and a bottle of bass
Can’t a man get a drink in a glass?
(On my own)
On my own
(Waiting for a friend to show)
Just waiting for a friend to show
(Just about ready to go)
I’m just about ready to go
(On my own)
I’m on my own again

(On my own)
On my own
(Waiting for a friend to show)
Just waiting for a friend to show
(Just about ready to go)
I’m just about ready to go
(On my own)
I’m on my own again

«gonna do something you might know
But don’t worry it gets better at the chorus»

I guess now it’s time for me to throw up
I feel it’s time
Got a picture of you beside me
Got your lipstick mark still on your coffee cup
Wash it off
Got a fist of pure emotion
Got a head of shattered dreams
Gotta leave it, gotta leave it all behind me now

[Chorus shouted loud & excitedly!]whatever i said, whatever i did i didn’t mean it
I just want you back for good
Whenever i’m wrong just tell me the song and i’ll sing it
You’ll be right and understood

Unaware but underlined i figured out the story
It wasn’t good
And in the corner of a mind i celebrated glory
But it wasn’t to be
In the twist of separation you excelled at being free
Can’t you find a little room inside for me

[Chorus shouted loud & excitedly!]whatever i said, whatever i did i didn’t mean it
I just want you back for good
Whenever i’m wrong just tell me the song and i’ll sing it
You’ll be right and understood
And we’ll be together, this time is forever
(ed note: rob forgot the words again *g*)
So complete in our love
We will never be uncovered again

Mosh!

[Chorus shouted loud & excitedly!]whatever i said, whatever i did i didn’t mean it
I just want you back for good
Whenever i’m wrong just tell me the song and i’ll sing it
You’ll be right and understood

You’ve done it all, you’ve broken every code
And pulled the Rebel to the floor
You spoilt the game, no matter what you say
For only metal what a bore
Blue eyes, blue eyes, how come you tell so many lies
Come up and see me, make me smile
And do what you want for a little while
Come up and see me, make me smile
And do what you want for a little while
Mr Tom Jones!
Baby take off your coat (Tell ’em Tom!)
Real slow
Baby take off your shoes
I’ll help you take off your shoes
You give me reason to live
You give me reason to live
You give me reason to live
You give me reason to live
Well, you can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on
Well, you can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on
Well, you can leave your hat on
Leave it on, Leave it on
Leave it on, Leave it on
Leave it on, Leave it on
Leave it on
You can leave your hat on yeah
You gotta know how to pony
Like Mony Baronie
Mashed potato
Do the alligator
Put your hand on your hip
Let your backbone slip
Do the Watusi
Like your Aunt Lucy
Naa na na na…
You gotta know how to pony
Like Mony Baronie
You gotta mashed potato
You gotta alligator
Put your hand on your hip
Let your backbone slip
Do the Watusi
Like your Aunt Lucy
Naa na na na…
Yes!
Sing it with us now!
Naa na na na…
Long tall Sally
Jump back in that alley babe
Put your hand on your hip
Let your backbone slip

You sit and scream at all the scandal
That put the monkey on your back
Don’t put your idols on a mantel
You’ll only want your money back

Don’t slap my face and call me brother
Lend me a hand and knock me out
So one disciple to another
What’s this shit really about?

Are we united?
‘Cos I’m really not that sure
When you’ve decided
Spread some love and ask for more

I sit and think about my maker
And what he’s got in store for me
I wanna be a right-on daddy
Protect my wife and family

Are we united?
‘Cos I’m really not that sure
When you’ve decided
Spread some love and ask for more

Are we united?
‘Cos I’m really not that sure
When you’ve decided
Spread some love and ask for more
Runnin’ out of love
Got a pain in my head
It’s bringing me down
Got send me something

Got a gun on my hip
Real tight grip
Don’t give me no lip
Boy send me something

When a woman needs a man
Man do what you can
Lend them a hand
And send them something
Send them something

Are we united?
‘Cos I’m really not that sure
When you’ve decided
Spread some love and ask for more

Have you decided to spread some love
And ask for more?
Have you decided to spread some love
And ask for more?
Are we united?
Are we united?
Hey hey hey
Are we united?
Let’s be united
Every day
Are we united?
Are we united?
Hey hey hey
Let’s be united
Let’s be united
Every day

I’ll be united
Hey hey hey
Let’s be united
Let’s be united
Every day
Gonna
Hey hey
Hey hey hey
Are we united?
Are we united?
Hey hey hey

Close the door, turn out the light
There’s something really wrong tonight
With you, me and you
You say you’re too young to love and too old to hate
Remote control keeps you awake, so turn me on

Maybe you could talk and make my day
You don’t have to walk away to

Stay with me
Make me change
Answer me
Break the chain

News at ten, «Eastenders» and another cup of tea
And then a fight, baby, not tonight
‘Cuz I’m not dressed to be a clown
I’m not in the mood for shouting loud

Talk to me
Break the chain
Talk to me
Make me change

Do you keep your lover out of sight?
‘Cause you smell like someone else tonight
Well alright, alright
Talk to me
Break the chain
Talk to me
Make me change
Answer me
Answer me
Answer me
Answer me

I could be an animal for many years to come
It would be understandable if this animal had fun
My wayward soul will never set me free
And commitment’s a miracle, and I’m physical, you see

I’m not your lover, baby
I’m not the one
I won’t meet your mother, lady
I don’t do love

You won’t buy my attitude
So it’s solitude for free
And I can’t help being rude
If you get to close to me
You are the one, with your finger on the gun
So I am that animal, and animals will run

I’m not your love’s, baby
I’m not the one
I won’t meet your mother, lady
I don’t do love

I can’t believe
It’s not in me
You see me leave
If I can’t breathe
I could be an animal, for many years to come
It would be understandable, if this animal had fun
And I’ve got my alibi, so I’ll say goodbye

I’m not your lover, baby
I’m not the one
I’ve been too smothered lately
I don’t do love

I can’t believe
That you can’t see
It’s not in me
Now see me leave

I don’t do love
I don’t do love
I don’t do love
I don’t do love
I don’t do love
I don’t do love

Is this a long range effort, ’cause I’ll pitch a tent
I’m kinda used to feeling cold
Should I walk naked, should I bear my soul
Won’t you help me fill this hole

And what I’m trying to say is be the one
Love me anyway… Though I’m too far gone

Come take me over — I’m riddled with my past
Come take me over — is that too much to ask
Before I leave this town — love me or put me down

Got send me heaven, I wanna fall in love
You said the walking wounded could
I know I’ve sent my morals to an early grave
Is this the price I have to pay

What I’m tryin ‘a say, if I could touch
The love I fantasize, fantasize too much

Come take me over — I’m riddled with my past
Come take me over — Is that too much to ask?
Before I leave this town — love me

Take me to the shops, tie me up and abuse me
I’m looking good, so how could you refuse me
See I’m so special, why ain’t you cooking for two?
I’ll meet your mum, I’ll meet your friends
When you comin’ down
I’ll love you through the bends
I know I’m special, but why ain’t you cooking for two?

I guess what I’m try’na say
Is what I’ve never known
Can’t use it anyway, just give me love

Come take me over — Gonna be the last
Come take me over — If she don’t meet this task
Before I leave this town — Love me or put me down

Sticks and stones may break my bones
But words can burn a happy home
It’s true
I’ve got words for you
The past is done
It’s gone forever
Don’t tell me my pain is pleasure
You, you haven’t got a clue

(Chorus)
Aah, I wanna cry but I don’t make a sound
I am your child and your child is feeling down
Everybody’s toxic in this town

All God’s children fade and die
In the name of let’s get high
Amen, you’d do it again
I pray the lord, my soul to keep
But when you’re coming down I’ll be asleep
I can’t pretend
It’s killing me again

Chorus

Call me in my Lord
I’m coming down
Call me in my Lord
I’m coming down
Chorus x 2

Sticks and stones may break my bones
But words can burn a happy home
It’s true
I’ve got words for you

We’ve learnt to kick a ball, but we’re not quite cynical
And we’ve written on the wall, John’s gay He’s gay
And Janet’s friends with John and she says that we’re all scum
He just gets his homework done and won’t play not today

What will we grow up to be
What will we grow up to see
Will you still be friends with me fourteen, fifteen, sixteen

Martin grew out of his A-team vest
And nicked the pedals off my BMX
And he says that he’s had sex with a girl, for effect
I lost my virginity, the year above us had discovered E
And I said it weren’t for me, twelve pounds, fifty

What will we grow up to be
What will we grow up to see
Will you still be friends with me fourteen, fifteen

We hide in bandstands and talk in the dark
Rain’s never cold when you’re young
We were devoted to us from the start
I know too much how to feel … young

We’ve learnt to kick a ball, and we’re not quite cynical
And we’ve written on the wall, John’s gay He’s gay
What will we grow up to be
What will we grow up to see
Will you still be friends with me fourteen, fifteen
What will we grow up to be
What will we grow up to see
Will you still be friends with me fourteen, fifteen … young

Often, I don’t see it if I’ve been wrong
And boy have I been wrong
Often, I don’t need it until it’s gone
But by then it’s gone

Often, I make the worst decisions
Say that it’s great when I know it isn’t so
It’s happening so….
Often

Often, I won’t wake up from a dream
You know I love to dream
Often, I don’t stand up for what I believe
There’s nothing left to believe

Often, I make the worst decisions
Say that it’s great and I know it isn’t so
It’s happening so….often

I often wish that you were here
I could moan, bend your ear

Do Doo Do Doo Do Doo Do
Yeah, Yeah

Often, I don’t see it when I’ve been wrong
And boy have I been wrong
Often, I don’t need it until it’s gone
But by then it’s gone
Often, I make the worst decisions
Say that it’s great when I know it isn’t so
It’s happening so….
Often

Oh, I’m your new best mate
Help me self-medicate
Things can all look great

Stopped in this town to quench my thirst
The bad man got here first
Then the bubble burst

Who’s telling stories

I can’t handle shit
And it’s beginning to bore me
Just get on with it
Kill me or cure me

My love life’s gone stiff
Don’t know who I’ve been with
And I’m gonna take it cos they wanna give
Can you blame me?

Don’t need to spend my bread
People do that for me instead
Must be thinking that I’ll wake up dead
In the morning

I can’t handle shit
And it’s beginning to bore me
Just get on with it
Kill me or cure me
You’ve got a powerful lawyer

Well I’ve got money for ya
I know why I appall ya
But I fucked your daughter

I got friends stay up till the end
Try to screw me or my girlfriend
Until I’m not the latest trend
Fetch me butler

I can’t handle shit
And it’s beginning to bore me
Just get on with it
Kill me or cure me

I can’t handle shit
Kill me or cure me

I can’t handle shit

[Verse 1]
I’m a gigolo, I’m Joseph
I’m a sad light of song
I’m everybody that I know
I’m being known for being wrong

[Chorus]
If I’m not mistaken
This is my heart breaking
I’m the man who threw it all away
Destiny is calling
Telling me to be boring
And I don’t care anyway
Gonna be nobody someday
Gonna be nobody someday

[Verse 2]
I’m a demon that you fear
I’m the joker, I’m the thief
I’m the lonesome cowboy riding
I’m the Indian chief

[Chorus]
Gotta watch my figure
Boy, if I get much bigger
They’ll stick a pin in me
And I’ll blow away
But I get richer
But they take my picture
Taking my soul away
Gonna be somebody someday
Gonna be nobody someday

[Verse 3]
I’m a moonlight serenade
I’m your bed when you are cold
I’m the captain of Titanic
I’m the passenger in the hole

[Chorus]
From the way I’m thinking
We’ll both be sinking
I knew before we sailed away
At the tip of my ego
It’s all you saw anyway
Gonna be nobody someday
Gonna be somebody, la la
La la

One, two, three, four

When you were collecting
For you sex appeal
He was in killing fields
Over you
You went and took away his self respect
Put him out like a cigarette
You blow

Don’t bother coming home
You said all you’ve got to say
He can get with the girls again
‘Cos he’s a charming man
It’s true
He can drink with the boys tonight
And have a fight alright
Then spew

You’re history
You’re history

Got your tits done
And moved out the very next day
All you left was the bill to pay
What a front
Could she not see that you’re a righteous man
Bible in hand
Cupid stunned
He used to want your love
Now he wants you to go away
He can drink till he’s comatosed
Yeah he rocks the most
Can’t you see
He’s got diamonds in his eyes tonight
Could give you quite a fright
No sympathy

You’re history
You’re history

Don’t bother coming home
You said all you’ve got to say
He can get with the girls again
He’s a charming man
It’s true

He can drink with the boys all night
And have a fight alright
Then spew
He will drink till he’s comatosed
Yeah he rocks the most
Can’t you see
He’s got diamonds in his eyes tonight
Could give you quite a fright
Yes siree
You’re history

One eye on the shadows, protecting his fellows
From sun up to the moon on his back
Sent the villains to Hades, a hit with the ladies
A stallion in the sack
You can’t get your life back
When right follows left Jack
The more you see the less you know
When others would leak it, his service is secret
Plays God when it’s your time to go

[Chorus]
Queen and country, safe and sound
With villains six feet underground
And no one knows cause no one’s found
Any trace of a man for all seasons
Loves them and leaves them alone, so alone
And you and I wouldn’t have a clue
Who’s doing what, why, when and who?
Up a creek with no canoe
Watch out! For the man for all seasons
Loves them and leaves them alone, so alone
But safe at home

From the House of Lords, saving Norfolk broads
Commoners and landed gentry
His word is Bond with a brunette or blonde
Baby, it’s so elementary
For the man never messed up your life with one stare
See the film, you’ll know how it goes
But this ain’t no fiction
Just check the diction quid pro quo, a pro’s pro
Hey fellas, don’t be jealous
When they made him they broke the mold
So charismatic, with an automatic
Never prematurely shooting his load
Ahh

[Chorus]
Queen and country, safe and sound
With villains six feet underground
And no one knows cause no one’s found
Any trace of a man for all seasons
Loves them and leaves them alone, so alone
And you and I wouldn’t have a clue
Who’s doing what, why, when and who?
Up a creek with no canoe
Watch out! For the man for all seasons
Loves them and leaves them alone, so alone
But safe at home

(But safe at x5)
(But safe at home)
(But safe at x2)

[Chorus]
Queen and country, safe and sound
With villains six feet underground
And no one knows cause no one’s found
Any trace of a man for all seasons
Loves them and leaves them alone, so alone
And you and I wouldn’t have a clue
Who’s doing what, why, when and who?
Up a creek with no canoe
Watch out! For the man for all seasons
Loves them and leaves them alone, so alone
But safe at home

[Chorus]
(Gradual Fade Out)
Queen and country, safe and sound
With villains six feet underground
And no one knows cause no one’s found
Any trace of a man for all seasons
Loves them and leaves them alone, so alone
And you and I wouldn’t have a clue
Who’s doing what, why, when and who?
Up a creek

Into bursting into flames
You burn so brightly
To shame the shamed
Feeling feelings were never yours
You woke up screaming

That was up the duff
Lisa Parkes I loved you
But you never saw
A year below you
1974

You’re face now fear here
You’re getting skanks
Must be a reason
Why I’m shooting blanks
If you were the somewhere
Right in my life
The only saviour
You’re mine tonight
Big wheel turning
Down by the river
Found my calling
Down by the river
Wanna live forever
So far so good
Now I trust myself better
God I wish you would
I’ve never been ungrateful
Good with the law
I know I’ve been faithful
1974
1974
I’ll die in your footsteps
Trade on your name
I’ll kill you with kindness
If you hurt me again
Standing in the rain
Thinking of you tonight
I’ve been searching for a meaning
Trying to find a wife
Loving all persons
To make it alright
I’ve been singing in the rain
Watching over you tonight
Stunned by the saddest
Songs she used to sing
Don’t look for tomorrow today
Goodbye dear Sunday
It’s been fun now it’s Monday
Everything’s coming up roses

In a northern town
In a northern town
We were getting down
In a northern town
We were getting down

Having good times
Having good, good times
In a northern town
In a northern town
Get together, have some good times, baby, can you feel it?

Have a good time
Good time’s coming to you
Good times, good times
I was dancing, I was singing, good times

In a northern town
In a northern town
We were getting down
In a northern town
We were getting down

Having good times
Having good, good times
In a northern town
In a northern town
Get together, have some good times, baby, can you feel it?
All alone, all alone
But I’m all alone now
But I’m all alone now
We’re good friends having good times
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

There’s scary monsters in my bedroom tonight
Theyґre playing off-on-off-on-off with the lights
Without permission they just dizz up the lights
And they’re not seeing the lights, alright

I wish they go and talk to Jesus instead
‘Cause now they’re bored and want to mess with my head
I know I’m lonely but I won’t share my bed
All the things that you do when you’re dead

Please, please
Aahaahaahaaa
Please, please
Aaahaaahaahaa
Please, please
Aaahaaahaahaa
Please, please
Aaahaaahaahaa

Oh, you’re breaking my heart
When I was young I didn’t know what to do
I started thinking maybe I was dead too
A world of actors watching me, watching you
Till I hadn’t a clue what was true

Don’t send the sandman to a sensitive kid
And make-up monsters in my house where they live
You’ll beat the demons that they scare themselves with
I know ’cause you know that I did
Please, please
Aahaahaahaaa
Please, please
Aaahaaahaahaa
Please, please
Aaahaaahaahaa
Please, please
Aaahaaahaahaa

You’re breaking my heart
Oh, I’m so scared
With knowing there’s no one
Or knowing there’s somebody there

Mental arithmetic
Make me a lunatic
Hey to the heretic
I’m feeling alright, it’s alright

Please, please
Aahaahaahaaa
Please, please
Aaahaaahaahaa
Please, please
Aaahaaahaahaa
Please, please
Aaahaaahaahaa
Oh, are you breaking my heart

I walk into a room
I say how do you do
They look at me and I look back at them
I slip into a chair
They say are you prepared I said I do not know

Sometimes I feel it but I can’t explain
Sometimes I need and want them through my veins
Now there’s ten in front of me
Asking me what do I see

I see nothing but butterflies and
Tests I did not know
The answers will not show
And all I see is butterflies and

Sometimes I feel it but I can’t explain
Sometimes the answer’s running to my brains
And in the long run you always said I’ll be there beside you
And in the long run you always thought I’ll be there to guide you

Sometimes I feel it but I can’t explain
Sometimes I need it like a running train
Sometimes I feel it in my pride
Sometimes I take it in my stride
Slow down feelings
Loved up with you
I can’t feel my legs
I can’t feel you

Slow down feelings
Loved up with you
The night before an hour, too
On my back and leaving you

Falling down the stairs and seen it through
Falling down feelin’ this
Monday morning I feel out of sorts
But that’s ok
Dried up and dreaming
Punching and screaming
Feeling the morning through

Duuududududuudu
Duuududududuudu
Duuududududuududududu
Duuududududuudu
Duuududududuudu
Duuududududuududududu

I got this in my system
Takin’ over
My imagination
Getting wider
This elastication
Automatic
No self-preservation
Pull me into shape

My testimony never fails
Like a metronome,on the nail
First thing in the morning
Late at night
Stretch me to the maximum
‘Till I feel alright

Want you to
Push stronger
I need your elastic for tension
Wait longer
I need to release your potential

I want you to
I want you to
I want you to
Since you put your hand then
In the pocket
I’ve been rubberbandin’
I can’t stop it
Stretch it to the distance
Don’t you get it?
Makin’ no resistance
Please don’t let me go

My testimony never fails
Like a metronome on the nail
First thing in the morning
Late at night
Stretch me to the maximum
‘Till I feel alright

Want you to
Push stronger
I need your elastic for tension
Wait longer
I need to release your potential

I want you to
I want you to
I want you to
It’s your intervention
So demanding
Feel my surface tension
I’m expanding
Step into the same shape
Where I started
For your fascination
Elasticate my soul

My testimony never fails
Like a metronome on the nail
First thing in the morning
To late at night
Stretch me to the maximum
‘Till I feel alright

Want you to
Push stronger
I need your elastic for tension
Wait longer
I need to release your potential
Push stronger
I need your elastic for tension
Wait longer
I need to release your potential
I want you to
I want you to
I want you to

It’s the end of the night
I want to know you
Get the phone, call a cab and take you home yeah
I think there’s something you should know
I’ll send my boys an order through Interflora
Tell you lies like «I love you» and «I adore you»
I think there’s something you should know

I’m a Love Cheat
And you look so sweet
Can take you home where I live
Lay you by the fire
Love me, lady
I’m a liar

The curtain’s closed
And the night is fun
I think it’s time for me to not be home alone
I think I’ll put the cat out and give the dog a bone
I hardly know you but I like your figure
Suppose I’ll read about you in The Mirror
I think there’s something everybody should know

I’m a Love Cheat
And you look so sweet
Can take you home where I live
Lay you by the fire

Rome Munich Rome
All the women and the money I’ve blown
Rome Munich Rome
There’s still a shitload of seeds to be sown
And I’ve been stunned
I plan to have it all while I’m still young
And I know you’re low
We’ll be alright tomorrow

You know it’s not enough
To kiss you in my sleep
A dream is not like love
So give me something I can keep

Rome Munich Rome
So many people, so alone
Rome Munich Rome
Pack your bags, take me home
In time you’ll see
How much I mean to you and you to me

A dream is not like love
So give me something I can keep

I always have an alibi
You allow me there
But tonight I have no conscience
So what comes after that

You’re coming down already
This high won’t see us through
Nothing I can change now
I’ve learnt to lie to you

What happened to me
What happened to you
You were pulling me on
I was leading you through
Lie to me

I always had a vision
That love would see us through
But what’s the point in wishing
When my dreams depend on you
Gonna need support now
Your friends can gather round
And you can tell them stories
On how I let you down

What happened to me
What happened to you
You were pulling me on
I was leading you through
Lie to me
Deceiving is believing
Deceiving is believing
Deceiving is believing
Deceiving is believing

I’m much too young to be cynical
It’s you that makes me miserable
Can you tell a lie through a smile
In bed we always deviate
And I’m the one who comes too late
These things hide inside of my mind, my mind

I always have an alibi
You allow me there
But tonight I have no conscience
So what comes after that

What happened to me
What happened to you
You were pulling me on
I was leading you through
Lie to me

Lie to me
Lie to me
Deceiving is believing
Believing
Believing
Believing
Believe

There she goes
There she goes again
Chasing through my face
And I just can’t contain
This feelin’ that remains

There she goes
There she goes again
Chasing down my lane
And I just can’t contain
This feelin’ that remains

There she goes
There she goes again
She calls my name
She calls my name
No one else could feel my pain
And I just can’t contain
This feelin’ that remains

There she goes
There she goes again
Running through my veins
And I just can’t contain
This feelin’ that remains
There she goes
There she goes
There she goes

[Verse 1]
Well I’m standing here looking at you
What do I see?
I’m looking straight through

To be told you’re having fun

So unplug the jukebox
And do us all a favour
That music’s lost its taste
So try another flavour

That music’s lost its taste
So try another flavour

[Spoken: «Ok, settle down you all, settle down lady
He’s gonna be on stage real soon, that’s right
Mama put your popcorn down, he’s turning to the band
Yeah, he’s running his legs off
Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Robbie Williams.»]

Just because you’re dyslexic
Doesn’t mean you’re not fake
We know you’re not that stupid
You’ll marry someone rich
Bet you won’t steal his watch
When you’re down by near his crotch
That’ll explain the itch
You were such a lying bitch

I know you hold my suitcase
Down in Kensington
And you were screwing Ewen
When I wasn’t in
Did it to me, you’ll do it to him
Your friends just gave me grief
I will make this brief
You were such a lousy thief
You were such a lousy thief
But you were good in bed
You were good in bed
So good in bed
Now you tell my girlfriend
That I’ll never change
You’ve been up since Wednesday
Don’t you find that strange
Your ex-boyfriend is deranged
You’ll tell them down in Browns
Haven’t been for years
It’s full of coke & tears
Full of coke & tears
Full of coke & tears
But you were good in bed
Good in bed

[Spoken: «Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to thank you on behalf of Mr. Robbie Williams and the band, you’ve been a fantastic audience
Robbie’s opened his heart out to you tonight and you’ve really taken him on board
Remember the name and whenever he’s in the neighbourhood, you get yourselves down there alright
It’s been a great evening, thank you very much. Robbie Williams has now left the building
Oh no, I’m afraid he’s come back for his coke — now he’s left the building — thank you very much — thank you very much»]

Glory Glory Hallelujah

Johnny you’re a poor man big man

Got mud on your face
Big disgrace
Kicking your can all over the place
Singing

We will we will rock you

[Verse 1]
Yoko’s cutting keys in Soho
I’ve been there and I should know oh face it
I’ll stick up for auntie Sally
Worzel’s just a dirty scally fragrant
Mia farrow’s patching marrows down at the place where all the face fit
Robin cousins doing dozens on a little pudding so he rakes it

[Chorus]
I’m the resurrection
I may steal your soul
I am very evil
I live for rock and roll

[Verse 2]
Shirley Bassey’s playing Lassie up a pole in Tallahassee hates it
Norris McWhirter’s doing furters in a little place how’s he fake it
It’s another appetizer I can go and buy a tizer laced fit
I don’t know where I’ve been but I know where I’ve been is near a lake

[Chorus]
I’m an erection
I may steal your soul
I am very evil
I live for rock and roll
I am an erection
I may steal your soul
I am very evil
Only for rock and roll

[Verse 1]
Peace on earth see two old men
We’re gonna get boozed up again
I’m an actor, pope, messiahs
Roastin’ oats on open fires
Pushed to find three wise men
You definitely won’t find a virgin
It ain’t my rounds, so I’ll be cheering

[Chorus]
I believe in Christmas
What do you believe in
Mine is yours and yours is mine
I believe in Christmas time
Everybody’s feeling fine
We believe in Christmas time
Mine is yours and yours is mine
I believe in Christmas time
Everybody’s feeling fine
‘Cause we believe in Christmas time

[Verse 2]
Happy birthday Jesus Christ
Here’s the Spice Girls’ merchandise
Got Christmas spirit without a doubt
Poor old Santa while he’s out
I don’t care if lords are leaping
I take a get to the back
While they are sleeping
And make sure that they won’t be breathing

[Chorus]
I believe in Christmas
What do you believe in
Mine is yours and yours is mine
I believe in Christmas time
Everybody’s feeling fine
We believe in Christmas time
Mine is yours and yours is mine
I believe in Christmas time
Everybody’s feeling fine
‘Cause we believe in Christmas time

[Chorus]
Will you stay in our lover’s story?
If you stay you won’t be sorry
‘Cause we believe in you
Soon you’ll grow so take a chance
With a couple of Kooks hung up on romancing

[Verse 1]
We bought a lot of things to keep you warm and dry
A funny old crib on which the paint won’t dry
I bought you a pair of shoes
A trumpet you can blow and a book of rules
Of what to say to people when they pick on you
‘Cause if you stay with us you’re gonna be pretty kooky too

[Chorus]
Won’t you stay in my lover’s story?
If you stay you won’t be sorry
‘Cause we believe in you
Soon you’ll grow so take a chance
With a couple of Kooks hung up on romancing

[Verse 2]
If you ever have to go to school
Remember how they messed up this old fool
Don’t pick fights with the bullies or the cads
I’m not much cop at fighting other people’s dads
And if the homework brings you down
Then we’ll throw it on the fire
And take the car downtown

[Chorus]
Won’t you stay in my lover’s story?
If you stay you won’t be sorry
‘Cause we believe in you
Soon you’ll grow so take a chance
With a couple of Kooks hung up on romancing
Won’t you stay in my lover’s story?
If you stay you won’t be sorry
‘Cause we believe in you
Soon you’ll grow so take a chance
With a couple of Kooks hung up on romancing

[Verse 1]
Ask me why
I say it’s most unusual
How can I even try to explain

[Chorus]
Why today I feel like dancing
Singing like lovers sing
When I wouldn’t normally do this kind of thing
I wouldn’t normally do this kind of thing

[Verse 2]
Ask me when (ah)
I say it started when I met you (ah)
And ever since then I knew that the past couldn’t last

[Chorus]
For right now I think I’m running
A race I know I’m gonna win
And I wouldn’t normally do this kind of thing
I wouldn’t normally do this kind of thing

[Bridge]
If people say I’m crazy, I tell them that it’s true
Let them watch with amazement
Say it won’t last beyond breakfast
It’s a phase he’s going through
Denigrate or speculate on what I’m going through
Because it ain’t the sort of thing I’d normally do

[Verse 3]
Ask me what (ah)
I say I think it’s good for you (ah)
Believe it or not, I know where it’s all leading to
I feel like taking all my clothes off
And dancing to the Rite of Spring
And I wouldn’t normally do this kind of thing

[Chorus]
I wouldn’t normally do this kind of thing
I wouldn’t normally do this kind of-
Wouldn’t normally do this kind of-
Wouldn’t normally do this kind of thing

[Verse 1]
We’re only making plans for Nigel
We only want what’s best for him
We’re only making plans for Nigel
Nigel just needs a helping hand

[Chorus]
And if young Nigel says he’s happy
He must be happy, he must be happy
He must be happy in his world

[Verse 2]
We’re only making plans for Nigel
He has his future in a fist of steel
We’re only making plans for Nigel
Nigel’s whole future is as good as sealed

[Chorus]
And if young Nigel says he’s happy
He must be happy, he must be happy
He must be happy in his world

[Bridge]
Nigel is nice spoken and he loves to speak
And he likes to be spoken to
Nigel is happy in his world
Nigel is happy in his world
We’re only making plans for Nigel
We only want what’s best for him
We’re only making plans for Nigel
Nigel just needs a helping hand

[Chorus]
And if young Nigel says he’s happy
He must be happy, he must be happy
He must be happy in his world

[Outro]
We’re only making plans for Nigel
We only want what’s best for him
We’re only making plans for Nigel
We only want what’s best for him

[Verse 1]
Put my hand on the Bible
Do me for libel
It’s suing season
And I am broke
Buy me some happy
Find me some passion
Will it ever happen?
Heaven knows

[Chorus]
Sometimes you’ve got to get the joke
It’s the only thing that keeps this bloke afloat
Who put this spanner in my spokes?
I can’t change how it’s wrote

[Verse 2]
Classy or flashy
At home with Lassie
They all walk past me
I wouldn’t know
Make me a new man
Find me a new plan
I am a sports fan
A real bloke

[Chorus]
Sometimes you’ve got to get the joke
It’s the only thing that keeps this bloke afloat
Who put this chainsaw in my spokes?
I can’t change how it’s wrote

[Bridge]
And when my ship comes in, she’ll be on it
Eating a fresh kebab and I want it
And I want it now

[Chorus]
Sometimes you’ve got to get the joke
It’s the only thing that keeps this bloke afloat
Who put this chainsaw in my spokes?
I can’t change how it’s wrote
Sometimes you’ve got to get the joke
It’s the only thing that keeps this bloke afloat
You get the dagger out of the cloak
I can’t change how it’s wrote

[Verse 1]
I met her at an aftershow party
I said have we met before?
She said hardly
She had a curry stain
That was down her cardie
But her teeth were clean
So I said smartly

[Chorus]
I’m falling in love again
I’m so in lust with you
Pillow over head again
I’ll suffocate with you
If you ask me to

[Verse 2]
She was educated at this school called RADA
She was made to go by her mother
And financed by her father
She said Room 211 and I said (laugh) rather
I got her name wrong once or twice
I said I’ll call ya Carol, yeah?
She said that would be nice

[Chorus]
I’m falling in love again
I’m so in lust with you
My Pillow over head again
I’ll suffocate with you
If you ask me to

[Verse 3]
So I strolls of to the reception
And I ask for me room key
The Maitre’D — Hello
He seemed pleased to meet me
I went to the lift and pressed button two
But very discreetly
The doors close and she went for my briefs

[Chorus]
See me
Falling in bed again
I’m so in lust with you
Pillow over head again
I’ll suffocate in you
If you ask me to
Oh to

[Outro]
But in the throws of passion
It hit me right between the head
I looked down at her
She had a bit of cabbage stuck between her teeth
And I said
I think I’m in love with ya
I want ya kids an’ getting married to ya
And she said
Chill out
Rome wasn’t built in a day
And I said I wasn’t on that job

[Verse 1]
I’m gonna write you a letter
I think the sooner the better
‘Cause the time is right to find a better day
I’m an angry young man
Man I wish I was young
My guitar is out of tune even that’s highly strung
And the words we didn’t say last night
Shook the world to the core
We had nothing to say last night
We’d said it all before
And I say

[Chorus]
Lonely times and lonely tears
Will fade away when you disappear
The time is right for me to stray
I’m gonna find a better day

[Verse 2]
Kicking off ’cause it suits me
I’m gonna leave the country
And the time is right to find a better day
Making sense of my past now
I’ll only love when I want to
‘Cause the time is right to find a better day
Maybe I didn’t love you
Maybe you loved her less
Would you have preferred it
If I’d have worn the dress
‘Cause I say

[Chorus]
Lonely times and lonely tears
Will fade away when you disappear
The time is right for me to stray
I’m gonna find a better day
Lonely times and lonely tears
Will fade away when you disappear
The time is right for me to stray
I’m gonna find a better day

[Outro]
Nowhere to run to baby
Nowhere to hide
I got nowhere to run to baby
And nowhere to hide

[Verse 1]
Take your time, to unwind
You will find it’s love you are living
Clear the space, find a place
You will see it’s love you are giving

[Chorus]
Take your time to make things last
Love for the future, not the past
I can’t change the way I am
This is all I got, this cheap love song

[Verse 2]
Take your time, make it rhyme
You will see it’s all believing
One fine day, we’ll find a way
You will reach your own destination

[Chorus]
Seven clowns with different faces
Love we’ve lost, but we’re still chasing
One day we’ll leave this town
It’s all we’ve got, this cheap love song

[Bridge]
Take your time, feel fine
You will see, it’s all believing
One fine day, we’ll find a way
You will reach your own destination

[Outro]
Come on, carry on now
Better make a try now
Hold your head up high now
Win love
It’s nothing superficial
Been wrote to break the dish, oh
I’m making it ‘ficial
In love
Carry on now

[Verse 1]
You say you’re sick and tired
Of feeling sick and tired
I walked and told the truth
Do you wish I’d stayed alive?

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause she said that you said that I said
She said that I said, «The love’s dead»
And I tried to explain
Don’t expect you to be the same

[Chorus]
On this rockin’ roller coaster, an emotional ride
We were just an average B side
We were just an average B side

[Verse 2]
I watched the past run by
On the silver screen
We played our parts and died
Scene by scene

[Pre-Chorus]
When she said that you said that I said
She said that I said, «The love’s dead»
And I try to explain
Don’t expect you to feel the same

[Chorus]
On this rockin’ roller coaster, an emotional ride
We were just an average B side, oh B side

[Bridge]
Pretend you like me
Pretend I like you
Pretend, pretend, pretend
This is not happening

[Chorus]
On rockin’ roller coaster, an emotional ride
We were just an average B side
On rockin’ roller coaster, an emotional ride
We were just an average B side
We were just an average B side
We were just an average B side

[Verse 1]
We’re all so chic living in class A
Partying and search sweet sorrow today
When you don’t know who your friends are
And neither do they
We’re all so amused
And maybe it’s better that way
She’s been seen with him
He’s been seen with her
Happy propaganda
Just as their 5 current sur

[Pre-Chorus]
Sing my way of meaning
Karaoke overkill
We all should know better
But I bet we never will

[Chorus]
We’re insecure, making me think
I’m not fit to laze your dream
I’ve seen you in my bayer
You’re a real player
Taking it easy, taking it easy

[Verse 2]
We all know we shouldn’t
And that is why we do it
Here’s smuggler’s house
Why don’t you come and view it

[Pre-Chorus]
Sing my way of meaning
Karaoke overkill
We all should know better
But I bet we never will

[Chorus]
The sooner the better
I’ll send you a letter

[Outro]
Hanging with your sister
Playing naked twister
Down to your joker
Playing strip poker
Give us a clue of
Seeing the night thru
And you’re so kain
This song ain’t about you
Hanging with your sister
Playing naked twister
Down to your joker
Playing strip poker

[Intro]
Ah, yeah, yeah
Oh, baby

[Verse 1]
She is calling
And you don’t want to answer back
I’m falling
Trying to find my way back
Maybe I’ll never know
Where I’ve been (what I’ve seen)
I hope she’ll meet me in between
So I hope I get through this hurricane
And teach me how to smile again

[Chorus]
She makes me high (She makes me high)
She makes me high (She makes me high)
She don’t even try (She makes me high)
And I wanna know why (why, why, why)
Do, do, do, hey yeah
Do, do, do

[Verse 2]
The world’s calling
And it’s falling at your feet
And you’re sorry
Is it so hard to believe
There’s an innocence surrounding you
I see the way that people look at you
So hold my hand through this hurricane
And teach me how to smile again

[Chorus]
She makes me high (She makes me high)
She don’t even try (She makes me high)
She makes me high (She makes me high)
And I wanna know why (why, why, why)

[Bridge]
She puts her turn out
She is good
She suits me like
I wish you would
She is honest now
She is true
She’s the complete
Opposite of you (cheers, applause)

[Chorus]
She makes me high (She makes me high)
She makes me high (She makes me high)
She makes me high (She makes me high)
(Why) I wanna know
She makes me high (She makes me high)
She makes me high (She makes me high)
And I wanna know why
She makes me high

[Intro: Announcer & Robbie]
Hi out there. This is Shaun Goldberg and you’re listening to W. A. N. K. This evening I’ve got someone really interesting. He’s over from Old England and his name is… Robbie Williams
Cor blimey bleedin’ Mary Poppins
Great, Right On, you know we’ve been hearing about this boy band that was really big over there. Can you tell us a little bit about it Robbie?
First of all, I’d like to say thank you very much for having me in the first place but to answer your question I can’t really answer it, I suppose it was a bit like this

[Verse 1]
Riding in your limos
Hanging with your bimbos
Riding my old faithful
Bigger pin-up than Betty Grable
Kipper in the papers
Coke and whiskey chasers
I ain’t supposed to boast

[Chorus]
But I don’t care
I was a teenage millionaire
A teenage millionaire
A teenage millionaire
Yeah, yeah

[Verse 2]
Services for Britain
Pouting like a kitten
Dinner with Diana
I’m a social Stokey spanner
Waiting for my knighthood
She can pin it on my manhood
I ain’t supposed to boast

[Chorus]
But I don’t care
I was a teenage millionaire
A teenage millionaire
A teenage millionaire
Yeah, yeah
A teenage millionaire
(It works out sometimes it’s funny
Being stupid makes you lots of money)

[Vesre 3]
Bothered Judy Garland
When I buggered Barbara Cartland
Champagne in my bidet
The press all had a field day
You may think it’s an outrage
My cleaners wearing bondage
She makes my place a mess

[Chorus]
But I don’t care
I was a teenage millionaire
A teenage millionaire
A teenage millionaire
Yeah, yeah
A teenage millionaire

[Outro]
Come on waif
It looks as if you need a good feeding

[Verso 1]
Lléname la vida, dame tranquilidad
Calma el temporal que hay en mi piel
Dame primaveras para disfrutar
Días que se van, no han de volver

[Estribillo]
Puede ser que la voz de tu paz y el amor
Me ayuden a cambiar y me hagan ser mejor

[Verso 2]
Perdona mis manías, no doy para más
No sé aparentar, soy como soy
Angel de la guarda. ven y sálvame
Sálvame del mal, ayúdame

[Estribillo]
Puede ser que la voz de tu paz y el amor
Hoy me ayuden a cambiar y me hagan ser mejor

[Puente]
Siempre hay en la vida oportunidad
Para amar mejor, no hay que amar de más
Muchos han caído de tanto dar y de tanto amar

[Verso 1]
Lléname la vida, dame tranquilidad
Calma el temporal que hay en mi piel
Dame primaveras para disfrutar
Días que se van, no han de volver

[Estribillo/Final]
Puede ser que la voz de tu paz y el amor
Me ayuden a cambiar y me hagan ser mejor

Oh! Tout semble avoir été perdu
Pas un seul coeur solitaire
Tous ont déserté les rues
Et si les plus belles sont déjà prises
Si les plus beaux sont comme ils disent
Que deviens-tu?

Oh tu prends la pause devant ta glace
Pour un nouvel inventaire
Avant d’y perdre la face
Tu veux crier au secours
Revoir la lueur du jour
Aimer encore
Aimer plus fort

Quand l’amour n’est plus là
Que te reste-t-il, pour survivre ici bas?
Donne le meilleur de toi-même
Et tu trouveras l’amour suprême
L’amour suprême

Oh ! Sais tu au moins ce que tu veux ?
Est-ce la peur d’être seul
Qui t’empêche de jouer franc-jeu ?
Entre l’amour et le plaisir
Quel est vraiment ton désir ?
Tu dois choisir
Oh! Oublie toutes ces choses de la vie
Qui reviennent de torturer
Le grand vide de tes nuits
Prends un ticket pour ailleurs
Sans te priver du bonheur
D’aimer encore (aimer encore)
D’aimer plus fort (aimer plus fort)

Quand l’amour n’est plus là
Que te reste-t-il pour survivre ici-bas?
Donne le meilleur de toi-même
Et tu trouveras l’amour suprême
L’amour suprême

I spy with my little eye
Something beginning with (ah)
Got my back up
And now she’s screaming
So I’ve got to turn the track up
Sit back and watch the royalties stack up
I know this girl she likes to switch teams
And I’m a fiend but I’m living
For a love supreme

Quand l’amour n’est plus là
Que te reste-t-il pour survivre ici-bas?
Donne le meilleur de toi-même
Et tu trouveras l’amour suprême
L’amour suprême
Donne le meilleur de toi-même
Viens vivre un amour suprême
Tout le monde a besoin d’amour
Donne le meilleur de toi-même
Viens vivre un amour suprême
Tout le monde a besoin d’amour

[Verse 1]
Save me from drowning in the sea
Beat me up on the beach
What a lovely holiday
There’s nothing funny left to say
This sombre song would drain the sun
But it won’t shine until it’s sung
No water running in the stream
The saddest place we’ve ever seen

[Chorus]
Everything I touched was golden
Everything I loved got broken
On the road to Mandalay
Every mistake I’ve ever made
Has been rehashed and then replayed
As I got lost along the way

[Post-Chorus]
Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
Bom badom

[Verse 2]
There’s nothing left for you to give
The truth is all that you’re left with
Twenty paces then at dawn
We will die and be reborn
I like to sleep beneath the trees
Have the universe at one with me
Look down the barrel of a gun
And feel the moon replace the sun

[Chorus]
Everything we’ve ever stolen
Has been lost, returned or broken
No more dragons left to slay
Every mistake I’ve ever made
Has been rehashed and then replayed
As I got lost along the way

[Post-Chorus]
Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
Bom badom
Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
Bom badom
Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom
Bom badom

[Outro]
Save me from drowning in the sea
Beat me up on the beach
What a lovely holiday
There’s nothing funny left to say

[Verse 1]
Canned laughter for applause
You’ve opened up doors
In and out of their wives
In and out of your smalls

[Refrain]
It’s not a BAFTA you’re after
You want a million dollar lay
By all means necessary
You will get your way

[Chorus]
It all seems so easy
But so are you
That’s what I’ve heard them say

[Verse 2]
All the make up that you wear
Can’t hide the flaws
You work in charity
For your own cause

[Refrain]
You won’t be dating a teacher
You’d rather shag a manic street preacher
By all means necessary
You will get your way

[Chorus]
It all seems so easy
But so are you
That’s what I’ve heard them say

[Bridge]
Sex with a stranger
You’ve been laid in a manger
And you think he’s your saviour
Will he leaves his pager?
You could be his daughter
Look what he’s bought ya
But the money won’t change ya
Of that there’s no danger
Now your life’s getting darker
It’s you that they’re after
Fifteen minutes a martyr
Blame it on your father
That dress nearly fits ya
Girl, what’s possessed you
Can we please take your picture
You know they’ll forget ya
Ooh yeah

[Chorus]
It all seems so easy
But so are you
That’s what I’ve heard them say

[Refrain]
By all means necessary
You will get your way
By all means necessary
You will get your way
By all means necessary
You will get your way

[Outro]
You don’t get your way
By giving it away

[Verse 1]
First you say you want me
Then you don’t want me really
Baby, do I scare you?
Am I talking too freely?
I got no perspective
On the things that you lack
Baby, I don’t care
Just lie on your back

[Chorus]
Baby, I’m crazy
But lady, I’m lazy
Amaze me
Baby, I’m faded
My mind’s all jaded
Amaze me

[Verse 2]
I’m so superstitious
So there’s something you should know
The reason I’m doing you
Is ’cause your friend said ‘no’
I’ve been suicidal since
God, I don’t know when
So get down on your knees
Say your prayers, Amen

[Chorus]
Baby, I’m crazy
Lady, I’m lazy
Amaze me
Baby, I’m faded
My mind’s all jaded

[Bridge]
Give me Texas wisdom
Massive systems
Can I pay you in kind?
Mother said ‘Son
If you do it too long
You’ll go blind’

[Chorus]
Baby, I’m lazy
But lady, I’m crazy
Amaze me
Baby, I’m faded
My mind’s all jaded
One, two

[Outro]
Everybody getting cash for the bung
Everybody wants to know how I’m hung
You can read it in the papers
I’m a giver not a taker
But it won’t be the same
Everybody getting cash for the bung
Everybody wants to know how I’m hung
You can read it in the papers
I’m a giver not a taker
But it won’t be the same

[Verse 1]
You said I was Nothern scum
I was wounded baby
That’s fighting talk where I’m from
And I’m not moving baby

[Pre-Chorus]
Spent my life
Dancing with shadows in strobe lights
It’s alright
Everything mellows in sunlight

[Chorus]
And now London’s got its gimmicks
And New York’s had its minute
But Knutsford City Limits
I’ll never change

[Verse 2]
I’ve been running nearly all my life
It left me broken baby
When the meter ran out on life
I used my tokens. baby

[Pre-Chorus]
Spent my life
Dancing with shadows in strobe lights
It’s alright
Everything mellows in sunlight

[Chorus]
And now London’s got its gimmicks
And New York’s had its minute
But Knutsford City Limits
I’ll never change

[Chorus]
London’s got its gimmicks
And New York’s had its minute
But Knutsford City Limits
I’ll never change

[Bridge]
I’ve been running nearly all my life
It left me broken baby
When the meter went out on life
I used my tokens, lady
You said I was Nothern scum
I was wounded, baby
That’s fighting talk where I’m from
And I’m not moving baby

[Chorus]
London’s got its gimmicks
And New York’s had its minute
But Knutsford City Limits
I’ll never change

[Verse 3]
Saw one transmission
On the television
Saying I can’t do my job
Well, I just kept dancing
Don’t hate me ’cause I’m handsome
And the beat will never stop
Saw one transmission
On the television
Saying I can’t do my job
Well, I just kept dancing
Don’t hate me ’cause I’m handsome
And the beat will never stop
Saw one transmission
On the television
Saying I can’t do my job
Well, I just kept dancing
Don’t hate me ’cause I’m handsome
And the beat will never stop
Saw one transmission
On the television
Saying I can’t do my job
Well, I just kept dancing
Don’t hate me ’cause I’m handsome
And the beat will never stop

[Verse 1]
This is love calling earth
Do you know how much it hurts?
I didn’t die overnight
In the wind I had candlelight

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m controlled by my fear
All the voices in my head that I can hear

[Chorus]
Please don’t
Hurt me…

[Verse 2]
How do I learn
To give love and be loved in return
If this is heaven I’m falling
I’d rather jump and run away than see it burn

[Pre-Chorus]
I feel I could die
Before I sleep, I kiss your cheek and say goodbye

[Chorus]
I’m so
Sorry
Please don’t
Hurt me

[Verse 3]
This is love calling earth
Do you know how much it hurts?
I didn’t die overnight
In the wind I had candlelight

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m controlled by my fear
All the voices in my head that I can hear

[Chorus]
I’m so
Sorry
Please don’t
Hurt me

[Bridge]
If you could see me through my mother’s eye
Only then would you begin to realise
All the places I have ever been
Have scared me half to death or somewhere in-between

[Outro]
I’m so
Sorry…
Please…

[Chorus]
Singing for the lonely
You’re not the only one who feels this
So scared of what I’m doing
All the time

[Verse 1]
Here comes wasted head space
Paranoia, anger, misplaced
Feelings leave me nowhere
All the time
I don’t wake up early every morning
Cause the more I sleep the less I have to say
Scared of you always thinking that I’m boring
Stop me yawning my life away
Tender young confusion
Send black mariah for blue delusions
Lays heavy, oh so heavy
On my mind

[Bridge]
I’m so sick of people’s expectations
Leaves me tired all the time
If your home’s full of worthless aggravation
Then don’t bring it to mine

[Verse 2]
I seem to spend my life just waiting for the chorus
Cause the verse is never nearly good enough
The hooligan half of me that steals from Woolworths
While the other lives for love

[Bridge]
I’m so sick of people’s expectations
Leaves me tired all the time
If your home’s full of worthless aggravation
Then don’t bring it to mine

[Chorus]
Singing for the lonely
We’re not the only ones who feel this
So scared of what I’m doing
All the time
Singing for the lonely
We’re not the only ones who feel this
So scared of what we’re doing
All the time

[Verse 1]
Please don’t think of me
If you do you gotta block it
I got chills tonight
And you can’t be here to stop it
I’m not a parasite
It’s just a lonely night tonight
I walked from the bar
‘Cause they were only laughing
I wished on our star
But they covered it in satin
I’m not a gigolo
That’s what I want you to know tonight

[Chorus]
Ooh ooh
I’ve hurt you I can see
Ooh ooh
Do you think it’s not hurting me?
Ooh ooh
The grass ain’t always green
And if it’s hurting you
You know that it’s hurting me
You know that it’s hurting me

[Verse 2]
You’ll meet other men
Who will break your heart
If I see you with them
It’s gonna tear me apart
Maybe in another life
We wouldn’t be alone tonight

[Chorus]
Ooh ooh
I’ve hurt you I can see
Ooh ooh
Do you think it’s not hurting me?
Ooh ooh
The grass ain’t always green
And if it’s hurting you
You know that it’s hurting me
You know that it’s hurting me
You know that it’s hurting me
You know that it’s hurting me

[Verse 1: Kylie Minogue & Robbie Williams]
Me no bubbletious
Me smoke heavy tar
Me be groovin’ slowly where you are
Notify your next of kin
‘Cause you’re never coming back
I’ve been dropping beats since Back in Black

[Pre-Chorus: Kylie Minogue & Robbie Williams]
And we’ll paint by numbers
‘Til something sticks
I don’t mind doing it for the kids

[Chorus: Kylie Minogue & Robbie Williams]
So come on, jump on board, take a ride, yeah
You’ll be doin’ it all night
Jump on board, feel the high
‘Cause the kids are alright

[Verse 2: Kylie Minogue & Robbie Williams]
You’ve got a reputation
Well, I guess that can be explored
You’re dancing with the chairman of the board
Take a ride on my 12-cylinder symphony
But if you got other plans
The purpose of a woman is to love her man
[Pre-Chorus: Kylie Minogue & Robbie Williams]
And we’ll paint by numbers
‘Til something sticks
I don’t mind doing it for the kids

[Chorus: Kylie Minogue & Robbie Williams]
So come on, jump on board, take a ride, yeah
You’ll be doin’ it all night
Jump on board, feel the high
Cause the kids are alright

[Bridge: Robbie Williams & Both]
I’m gonna give it all of my loving
It’s gonna take up all of my love
I’m gonna give it all of my loving
It’s gonna take up all of my love
I’m gonna give it all of my loving
It’s gonna take up all of my love
I’m gonna give it all of my loving
It’s gonna take up all of my love

[Bridge: Kylie Minogue & Robbie Williams]
Come down from the ceiling
I didn’t mean to get so high
I couldn’t do what I wanted to do
When my lips were dry
You can’t just up and leave me
I’m a singer in a band
Well, I like drummers, baby
You’re not my bag

[Chorus: Kylie Minogue & Robbie Williams]
Jump on board, take a ride, yeah
You’ll be doin’ it all night
Jump on board, feel the high, yeah
Jump on board, take a ride, yeah
You’ll be doin’ it all night
Jump on board, feel the high, yeah

[Outro: Robbie Williams]
I’m an honorary Sean Connery, born ‘74
There’s only one of me
Single handedly raising the economy
Ain’t no chance of the record company dropping me
Press be asking do I care for sodomy
I don’t know, yeah, probably
I’ve been looking for serial monogamy
Not some bird that looks like Billy Connolly
But for now I’m down with ornithology
Grab your binoculars, come follow me
I like to drink it out but never like to sip it uhh, uhh
I like to drink it out but never like to sip it uhh, uhh
I like to drink it out but never like to sip it uhh, uhh
I like to drink it out but never like to sip it uhh, uhh
I like to drink it out but never like to sip it uhh, uhh
I like to drink it out, drink it out, drink it out
Like a beat ya
To the floor, to the beat I got
To the floor, to the beat I got
To the floor, to the beat I got
Starting out
To the beat, to the beat I got
To the beat, to the beat I got
To the beat, to the beat I got

[Verse 1]
Oh, it seemed forever stopped today
All the lonely hearts in London
Caught a plane and flew away
And all the best women are married
All the handsome men are gay
You feel deprived
Yeah, are you questioning your size?
Is there a tumour in your humour?
Are there bags under your eyes?
Do you leave dents where you sit?
Are you getting on a bit?
Will you survive?
You must survive

[Chorus]
When there’s no love in town
This new century keeps bringing you down
All the places you have been
Trying to find a love supreme
A love supreme

[Verse 2]
Oh, what are you really looking for?
Another partner in your life
To abuse and to adore?
Is it lovey dovey stuff?
Do you need a bit of rough?
Get on your knees
Yeah, turn down the love songs that you hear
‘Cause you can’t avoid the sentiment
That echoes in your ear
Saying love will stop the pain
Saying love will kill the fear
Do you believe?
You must believe

[Chorus]
When there’s no love in town
This new century keeps bringing you down
All the places you have been
Trying to find a love supreme
A love supreme

[Bridge]
I spy with my little eye
Something beginning with (Ah)
Got my back up
And now she’s screaming
So I’ve got to turn the track up
Sit back and watch the royalties stack up
I know this girl, she likes to switch teams
And I’m a fiend but I’m living for a love supreme

[Chorus]
When there’s no love in town
This new century keeps bringing you down
All the places you have been
Trying to find a love supreme
A love supreme

[Outro]
Come and live a love supreme
Don’t let it get you down
Everybody lives for love
Come and live a love supreme
Don’t let it get you down
Everybody lives for love
Come and live a love supreme
Don’t let it get you down
Everybody lives for love
Come and live a love supreme
Don’t let it get you down
Everybody lives for love
Come and live a love supreme
Don’t let it get you down
Everybody lives for love
Come and live a love supreme
Don’t let it get you down
Everybody lives for love

[Verse 1]
Me with the floor show kicking with your torso
Boys getting high and the girls even more so
Wave your hands if your not with the man
Can I kick it? (Yes you can)
I got (funk), you got (soul)
We got everybody
I’ve got the gift gonna stick it in the goal
It’s time to move your body

[Pre-Chorus]
Babylon back in business
Can I get a witness?
Every girl, every man
Houston, do you hear me?
Ground control, can you feel me?
Need permission to land

[Chorus]
I don’t wanna rock DJ
But you’re making me feel so nice
When’s it gonna stop DJ
Cause you’re keeping me up all night

[Verse 2]
Singing in the classes, music for your masses
Give no head no backstage passes
Have a proper giggle I’ll be quite polite
But when I rock the mic, I rock the mic (Right)
You got no love then you’re with the wrong man
It’s time to move your body
If you can’t get a girl but your best friend can
It’s time to move your body

[Pre-Chorus]
I don’t wanna be sleazy
Baby just tease me
Got no family planned
Houston, do you hear me?
Ground control, can you feel me?
Need permission to land

[Chorus]
I don’t wanna rock DJ
But you’re making me feel so nice
When’s it gonna stop DJ
Cause you’re keeping me up all night

I don’t wanna rock DJ
But you’re making me feel so nice
When’s it gonna stop DJ
Cause you’re keeping me up all night

[Bridge]
Pimping ain’t easy
Most of them fleece me
Every night
Pimping ain’t easy
But if you’re selling it
It’s alright
Come on

[Chorus]
I don’t wanna rock DJ
But you’re making me feel so nice
When’s it gonna stop DJ
Cause you’re keeping me up all night

I don’t wanna rock DJ
But you’re making me feel so nice
When’s it gonna stop DJ
Cause you’re keeping me up all night

[Verse 1]
Send someone to love me
I need to rest in arms
Keep me safe from harm
In pouring rain
Give me endless summer
Lord, I fear the cold
Feel I’m getting old
Before my time

[Chorus]
As my soul heals the shame
I will grow through this pain
Lord, I’m doing all I can
To be a better man

[Verse 2]
Go easy on my conscience
Cause it’s not my fault
I know I’ve been taught
To take the blame
Rest assured my angels
Will catch my tears
Walk me out of here
I’m in pain

[Chorus]
As my soul heals the shame
I will grow through this pain
Lord, I’m doing all I can
To be a better man

[Bridge]
Once you’ve found that lover
You’re homeward bound
Love is all around
Love is all around
I know some have fallen
On stony ground
But love is all around

[Bridge]
Send someone to love me
I need to rest in arms
Keep me safe from harm
In pouring rain
Give me endless summer
Lord, I fear the cold
Feel I’m getting old
Before my time

[Chorus]
As my soul heals the shame
I will grow through this pain
Lord, I’m doing all I can
To be a better man

[Verse 1]
Out of a million seeds
Only the strongest one breathes
You made a miracle mother
I’ll make a man out of me

[Pre-Chorus]
Daddy, where’s the sun gone from the sky?
What did we do wrong, why did it die?
And all the grown-ups say ‘sorry kids we got no reply’

[Chorus]
If you’re willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I’ve got more than I need
When your love shines down on me

[Verse 2]
Every tear that you cry
Will be replaced when you die
Why don’t you love your brother?
Are you out of your mind?

[Pre-Chorus]
Daddy, where’s the sun gone from the sky?
What did we do wrong, why did it die?
And if you’ve got no love for me then I’ll say goodbye

[Chorus]
If you’re willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I’ve got more than I need
When your love shines down on me
If you’re willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I can’t contain how I feel
When your love shines down on me

[Bridge]
Well if you want it come and make a stance
So when it’s in your hands
People show me love
Well if you want it come and make a stance
So when it’s in your hands
People show me love

[Chorus]
If you’re willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I got more than I need
When your love shines down on me
If you’re willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I can’t contain how I feel
When your love shines down on me

That’s life, that’s what all the people say
You’re riding’ high in April
Shot down in May
But I know I’m gonna change that tune
When I’m back on top, back on top in June

I said that’s life, and as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks
Steppin’ on a dream;
But I don’t ever let it get me down
‘Cause this fun ol’ word keeps spinnin’ round

I’ve been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate
A poet, a pawn and a king
I’ve been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing:
Each time I find myself falling flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That’s life, and I can’t deny it
I thought of quitting baby
But my heart just ain’t gonna buy it
And if I didn’t think it was worth one single try
I’d jump right on a big bird and then I’d lie

I’ve been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate
A poet, a pawn and a king
I’ve been up and down, over and out
And I know one thing:
Each time I find myself falling flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race
That’s life, that’s life and I can’t deny it
Many times I thought I’d cut it out
But my heart won’t buy it
And if there’s nothing shaking from this [?]
I’m gonna roll myself up in a big ball and die

Everytime we say goodbye
I die a little
Everytime we say goodbye
I wonder why a little
Why the gods above me
Who must be in the know
Think so little of me
They allow you to go

When you’re near
There’s such an air
Of spring about it

I can hear a lark somewhere
Begin to sing about it
There’s no love song finer
But how strange the change
From major to minor
Everytime we say goodbye

There’s no love song finer
But how strange the change
From major to minor
Everytime we say goodbye

Close your eyes so you don’t feel them
They don’t need to see you cry
I can’t promise I will heal you
But if you want to I will try
Sing this summer serenade
The past is done, we’ve been betrayed
It’s true
Some might say the truth will out
But I believe without a doubt
In you
You were there for summer dreaming
And you gave me what I need
And I hope you find your freedom
For eternity
For eternity
Yesterday when we were walking
You talked about your mom and dad
What they did that made you happy
What they did that made you sad
We sat and watched the sun go down
Then picked a star before we lost
The moon
Youth is wasted on the young
Before you know it’s come and gone
Too soon
You were there for summer dreaming
And you gave me what I need
And I hope you find your freedom
For eternity
For eternity
You were there for summer dreaming
And you are a friend indeed
And I hope you find your freedom
For eternity
You were there for summer dreaming
And you are a friend indeed
And I know you find your freedom
Eventually
For eternity
For eternity

And now the end is near
So I face the final curtain
My friend, I’ll say it clear
I’ll state my case of which I’m certain

I’ve lived a life that’s full
I’ve travelled each and every highway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Regrets, I’ve had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exception

I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
Oh, and more, much more than this
I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my way
I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried
I’ve had my fails, my share of boozing
And now as tears subside
I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way
Oh, no, no not me
I did it my way

For what is a man, what has he got
If not himself, then he has not
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words he would reveal
The record shows I took a blow
And did it my way

She wined and dined on Mulligan stew
And never wished for turkey
As she hitched and hiked and grifted too
From Maine to Albuquerque
Alas, she missed the Beaux Arts Ball
And what is twice as sad
She was never at a party
Where they honored Noel Ca’ ad
But social circles spin too fast you see
Her Hobohemia is the place to be

She gets too hungry, for dinner at eight
She likes the theater, but never comes late
She never bothers, with anyone she hates
That is why this lady is a tramp

She don’t like crap games, with barons and earls
Won’t go to Harlem, in ermine and pearls
Won’t dish the dirt, with the rest of those girls
That is why this lady is a tramp

She likes that free, fresh wind in her hair
Life without care
She’s broke, no joke
Hates California, too cold, too damp
That’s why this [?] is a tramp
She gets too hungry, for dinner at eight
She likes the theater, but never comes late
She never bothers, with anyone she hates
That is why this lady is a tramp

She don’t like crap games, with barons and earls
Won’t go to Harlem, in ermine and pearls
Don’t dish the dirt, with the rest of those girls
That is why this lady is a tramp

She likes the free, fresh wind in her hair
Life without care
I’m broke, no joke
Hates California, too cold, too damp
That’s why this lady
That’s why the lady
That’s why this lady is a tramp

There may be trouble ahead
But while there’s music and moonlight and love and romance
Let’s face the music and dance
Before the fiddlers have fled
Before they ask us to pay the bill and while we still have the chance
Let’s face the music and dance
Soon we’ll be without the moon, humming a different tune and then
There may be teardrops to shed
So while there’s moonlight and music and love and romance
Let’s face the music and dance

Somewhere, beyond the sea
Somewhere waitin’ for me…
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailin’

Somewhere, beyond the sea
She’s there watchin’ for me
If I could fly like birds on high
Then straight to her arms, I’ll go sailin’

It’s far, beyond the stars
It’s near, beyond the moon
I know, beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon

We’ll meet, beyond the shore
We’ll kiss just like before
Happy we will be beyond the sea
And never again, I’ll go sailin’

[Instrumental interlude]

I know, beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon
Oh we’ll meet, I know we’ll meet, beyond the shore
We’ll kiss just as before
Happy we will be beyond the sea
And never again, I’ll go sailin’
No more sailin’
So long, sailin’, sailin’
No more sailin’

Goodbye, farewell, my friend
No more sailin’
So long, sailin’
No more sailin’

No more, farewell
Auf wiedersehen, adieu to ya and ya

No more sailing, no more
Oh, no more sailing
No more, no more
No more sailing

No more
One more time
No more sailing…

(spoken)
Robbie: (american accent) Johnny and Robbie
Jonathan: Youth, why are you you talking like that
We’re from Stoke!
Robbie: I know, but I can’t stop here pally!

Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall
Like the seashore clings to the sea
Like you’ll never get rid of your shadow
No you’ll never get rid of me

Let all the others fight and fuss
Whatever happens, we’ve got us

(Me and my shadow)
We’re closer than pages that stick in a book
We’re closer than ripples that flow in a brook
(Strolling down the avenue)
Wherever you find him, you’ll find me, just look
Closer than a miser or the bloodhounds to Liza

(Me and my shadow)
We’re closer than smog gets to all of L.A
We’re closer than Ricky to confessing he’s gay
Not a soul can bust this team in two
We stick together like glue
Haha when it’s sleeping time
That’s when we rise
We start to swing
(Ooh, you think you’re so jazz you…)
Our clocks don’t chime
What a surprise
They ring-a-ding-ding!
Happy New Year!

(Me and my shadow)
And now to repeat what I said at the start
They’ll need a large crowbar to break us apart
We’re alone but far from blue

Before we get finished, we’ll make the town roar
We’ll hit a few late spots, and then a few more
We’ll start up at Stringy’s and maybe Groucho
Life is gonna be wow-wow-wee!
For my shadow and me!

(spoken)
Jonathan: Youth, that was ace! Can we do that again?
Robbie: No, I’m too tired
Jonathan: Oh, please Rob?
Robbie: No, I’m swung out
Jonathan: Oh, come on, I’ll give you some money
Robbie: I don’t need money..
Jonathan: What ’bout a cup of tea?
Robbie: I’m not thirsty
Jonathan: I won’t tell anybody you’re gay!
(Laughter, then HERE COMES THE TAG!)

Before we get finished, we’ll make the town roar
We’ll hit all the late spots, and then a few more
We’ll start out at Stringy’s and maybe Groucho
Life is gonna be wow-wow-wee!
For my shadow and me!

Have you met Miss Jones?
Someone said as we shook hands
She was just Miss Jones to me
And then I said, Miss Jones
You’re a girl who understands
I’m a man who must be free
And all at once, I lost my breath
And all at once, was scared to death
And all at once, I owned the Earth and sky

And now I’ve met Miss Jones
And we’ll keep on meeting ’til we die
Miss Jones and I

And all at once, I lost my breath
And all at once, was scared to death
And all at once, I owned the Earth and sky

Now I’ve met Miss Jones
And we’ll keep on meeting ’til we die
Miss Jones and I
Miss Jones and I
Miss Jones and I
Ha

[Verse 1: Robbie]
The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all that
No, no, they can’t take that away from me

[Verse 2: Rupert & Robbie]
The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off key
(I ain’t flat, the band’s sharp)
The way you haunt my dreams
Oh, no, they can’t take that away from me

[Chorus: Rupert & Robbie]
We may never, never meet again
On this bumpy road to love
Still I’ll always, always
Keep the memory of

[Verse 3: Robbie & Rupert]
The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life
Oh, no, they can’t take that away from me
No, no, they can’t take that away from me
(Not without a lawyer anyway)

[Chorus: Robbie & Rupert]
We may never, never meet again
On this bumpy road to love
Still I’ll always, always
Keep the memory of

[Verse 3: Robbie & Rupert]
The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life
Oh, no, they can’t take that away from me
No, they can’t take that away
No, they won’t take that away
Can’t take that away, can’t take that away
Won’t take that away, won’t take that away
Can’t take that away from me, yeah

How lucky can one guy be?
I kissed her and she kissed me
Like a fella once said:
«Ain’t that a kick in the head?»

The room was completely black
I hugged her and she hugged back
Like a sailor said quote:
«Ain’t that a hole in a boat?»

My head keeps spinnin’
I go to sleep and keep grinnin’
If this is just the beginnin’
My life is gonna be beautiful

I’ve sunshine enough to spread
It’s just like the fella said
Tell me quick
Ain’t that a kick in the head?

Like the fella once said:
«Ain’t that a kick in the head?»

Like the sailor said quote:
«Ain’t that a hole in a boat?»
My head keeps spinnin’
I go to sleep and keep grinnin’
If this is just the beginnin’
My life is gonna be beautiful

She’s telling me we’ll be wed
She’s picked out a king size bed
I couldn’t feel any better or I’d be sad

Tell me quick
Oh, ain’t that a kick…?
Tell me quick
Ain’t that a kick in the head?

[Verse 1: Robbie Williams and Jane Horrocks]
Every night I sit here by my window (window)
Starin’ at the lonely avenue (avenue)
Watching lovers holdin’ hands ‘n’ laughin’ (ha ha ha)
And thinkin’ ’bout the things we used to do

[Chorus: Robbie Williams and Jane Horrocks]
(Thinkin’ bout things) Like a walk in the park
(Things) Like a kiss in the dark
(Things) Like a sailboat ride
(Yeah-yeah) What about the night we cried?
Things like a lover’s vow
Things that we don’t do now
Thinkin’ ’bout the things we used to do

[Verse 2: Robbie Williams and Jane Horrocks]
Memories are all I have to cling to (cling to)
And heartaches are the friends I’m talkin’ to
(but ya got me now)
When I’m not thinkin’ ’bout just how much I love you
(I love you too)
I’m thinkin’ ’bout the things we used to do (we used to do)

[Chorus: Robbie Williams and Jane Horrocks]
(Thinkin’ bout things) Like a walk in the park
(Things) Like a kiss in the dark
(Things) Like a sailboat ride
(Yeah-yeah) What about the night we cried?
Things like a lover’s vow
Things that we don’t do now
Thinkin’ ’bout the things we used to do

[Verse 3: Robbie Williams and Jane Horrocks]
Still can hear the jukebox softly playin’ (playin’)
And the face each day I see belongs to you (belongs to you)
There’s not a single sound and there’s nobody else around (oh)
It’s just me thinkin’ about things we used to do

[Chorus: Robbie Williams and Jane Horrocks]
(Thinkin’ bout things) Like a walk in the park
(Lots of things) Like a kiss in the dark
(Yeah, things) Like a sailboat ride
(Wow, wow) What about the night we cried?
Things like a lover’s vow
Things that we don’t do now
Thinkin’ ’bout the things we used to do

And the heartaches are the friends I’m talkin’ to
You got me thinkin’ ’bout the things we used to do (I hope so)
Thinkin’ bout the things we used to do

[Spoken outro: Robbie Williams and Jane Horrocks]
You were rubbish in that
Don’t start that on me on this album
Why, why did you do it like that that time?
Well, from start to finish there you’re saying that I’m wrong
You said, you said I had to think about Kylie when I was doing this and I was
You obviously weren’t thinking about Kylie, were you, you were thinking about June Whitfield
I can’t hear you now, I can’t hear you
Well, you were thinking about June Whitfield, that’s who you were thinking about
I was thinking about somebody, you told me Kylie
Well, listen, you just came in wrong and then it got progressively worse from there
What?
You started wrong and then it just went worse
Can’t hear you, cut the act
It went bad bad bad right towards the end
Who said that? When you sang
No, when you sang
What? Who said that?
No, look, you started this on your last album, I don’t want anything to do with it, I’m going, goodbye

It’s quarter to three, there’s no one in the place
Except you and me
So set ’em’ up Joe, I got a little story
I think you should know
We’re drinking my friend, to the end
Of a brief episode
Make it one for my baby
And one more for the road

I got the routine, put another nickel
In the machine
I’m feeling so bad, won’t you make the music
Easy and sad
I could tell you a lot, but it’s not
In a gentleman’s code
Just make it one for my baby
And one more for the road
You’d never know it, but buddy I’m a kind of poet
And I’ve got a lot of things I’d like to say
And when I’m gloomy, won’t you listen to me
Till it’s talked away
Well that’s how it goes, and Joe I know your gettin’
Anxious to close
Thanks for the cheer
I hope you didn’t mind
My bending your ear
But this torch that I found, It’s gotta be drowned
Or it soon might explode
Make it one for my baby
And one more for the road

I knew a man Bojangles
And he’ll dance for you
In worn out shoes
With silver hair and ragged shirt, baggy pants
He would do the old soft shoe
He would jump so high
Jump so high
Then he’d lightly touch down

Told me of the time
He worked with, with minstrel shows
Traveling throughout the south
Spoke with tears for fifteen years
How his, how his dog and he
They would travel about
But his dog up and died
Got up and died
After twenty years he still grieves

He said ‘I dance now
At every chance in honky-tonks
For my drinks and tips
But most the time I, I spend behind these country bars
You see son I drinks a bit’
Then he shook his head
Oh Lord, when he shook his head
I can swear I heard somebody saying please, please
That’s Mister Bojangles
Calling Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles, come back and dance and dance
And dance, please, dance

Mister Bojangles

A buzzard took a monkey for a ride in the air
The monkey thought that everything
Was on the square
The buzzard tried to throw the monkey
Off his back
The monkey grabbed his neck and said
«Now listen, Jack…»

Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, don’t you blow your top
Ain’t no use in divin’
What’s the use in jivin’?
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, don’t you blow your top

The buzzard told the monkey
You are chokin’ me
Release your hold and I’ll set you free
The monkey looked the buzzard right
Dead in the eye and said
Your story’s so touching, but it sounds
Just like a lie

Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, don’t you blow your top
Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, don’t you blow your top

Ain’t no use in divin’
Ain’t no good in jivin’
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, don’t you blow — your — top

Fly right!

[Verse 1]
When I was seventeen
It was a very good year
It was a very good year for small
Town girls and soft summer nights
We’d hide from the lights
On the village green
When I was seventeen

[Verse 2]
When I was twenty-one
It was a very good year
It was a very good year for city girls
Who lived up the stair
With all that perfumed hair
And it came undone
When I was twenty-one

[Verse 3]
When I was thirty-five
It was a very good year
It was a very good year for blue
Blooded girls of independent means
We’d ride in limousines
Their chauffeurs would drive
When I was thirty-five

[Verse 4]
But now the days are short
I’m in the autumn of the year
And now I think of my life as vintage
Wine from fine old kegs
From the brim to the dregs
It poured sweet and clear
It was a very good year

Do nothin’ till you hear from me
Pay no attention to what’s said
Why people tear the seams of anyone’s dreams?
It’s over my head
Do nothin’ till you hear from me
At least consider our romance
If you should take the words of others you’ve heard
I haven’t a chance
True I’ve been seen with someone new
That doesn’t mean that I’ve been untrue
Though we’re apart, the words in my heart
Reveal how I feel about you
Some kiss may cloud my memory
And other arms may hold a thrill
But please do nothin’ till you hear it from me
And you never will
True I’ve been seen with someone new
That don’t mean that I’ve been untrue
While we’re apart, the words in my heart
Reveal how I feel about you
Some kiss me, cloud my memory
And other arms may hold a thrill
But please do nothin’ till you hear it from me
Please do nothin’ till you hear it from me
Please do nothin’ till you hear it from me
Baby, you never will
That’s a truth [?]
And don’t tell your mama

I know I stand in line until you think you have the time
To spend an evening with me
And if we go some place to dance, I know that there’s a chance
You won’t be leaving with me
Then afterwards we drop into a quiet little place
And have a drink or two
And then I go and spoil it all by saying something stupid
Like «I love you»

I can see it in your eyes you still despise the same old lies
You heard the night before
And though it’s just a line to you, for me it’s true
And never seemed so right before

I practice every day to find some clever lines to say
To make the meaning come through
But then I think I’ll wait until the evening gets late
And I’m alone with you
The time is right, your perfume fills my head, the stars get red
And, oh, the night’s so blue
And then I go and spoil it all by saying something stupid
Like «I love you»

The time is right, your perfume fills my head, the stars get red
And, oh, the night’s so blue
And then I go and spoil it all by saying something stupid
Like «I love you»
I love you
I love you
I love you

Oh the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
And he shows them, pearly white
Just a jackknife has MacHeath, babe
And he keeps it, out of sight

Ya know when that shark bites with his teeth, dear
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves, oh, its old MacHeath, babe
So there’s never, never a trace of red

On the sidewalk, oh, Sunday morning, dontcha know
Lies a body just oozin’ life
And someone’s sneakin’ ’round the corner
Could that be our boy, Mack the knife?

From a tug boat, down by the river, dontcha know
There’s a cement bag just dropping on down
That cement’s there, it’s there for the weight, dear
Five’ll get ya ten old Mack, he’s back in town

D’ja hear ’bout Louie Miller, he disappeared, baby
After drawing out all, his hard-earned cash
And now MacHeath spends, he spends just like a, like a sailor
Could it be, could it be, could it be, our boy’s done something rash?
Now Jenny Diver, oh Sukey Tawdry
Look out Miss Lotte Lenya, and ole Lucy Brown
Yeah, the line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky’s back in town

I said Jenny Diver, woah, oh Sukey Tawdry
Look out Miss Lotte Lenya, and ole Lucy Brown
Yeah the line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky’s, back in town…

Look out, old Macky is back, wow!

[Verse 1]
I wouldn’t be so alone
If they knew my name in every home
Kevin Spacey would call on the phone
But I’d be too busy
Come back to the old five and dime
Cameron Diaz give me a sign
I’d make you smile all the time
Your conversation would compliment mine

[Hook]
I will talk and Hollywood will listen
See them bow at my every word
Mr Spielberg look just what you’re missing
Doesn’t that seem a little absurd
Bow at my every word

[Verse 2]
Buy up the rights to my book
Live on a ranch from what the box office took
I’ll go and visit the set
They’ll call me their saviour
All the peoples will scorn celebrity
Lives on the moon
But I’ll be back home in June
To promote the sequel

[Hook]
I will talk and Hollywood will listen
See them bow at my every word
Mr. Spielberg look just what you’re missing
Doesn’t that seem a little absurd
Bow at my every word

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhhhh

Things got weird
Like a three year old with a beard
Like a vision of Britney Spears
Like a tuna always seared

Do you like it a lot?
Guess what’s on the clock?
I’d rather fanny about on a yacht
Stop staring at the stars

Save the children
Save the children

Things got weird
Like a three year old with a beard
Like a vision of Britney Spears
Like a tuna always seared

Do you like it a lot?
Guess what’s on the clock?
I’d rather fanny about on a yacht
Stop staring at the stars

You said when you’d die that you’d walk
With me every day
And I’d start to cry and say please don’t talk that way
With the blink of an eye the Lord came
And asked you to leave
You went to a better place but He stole you
Away from me

And now she lives in heaven
But I know they let her out
To take care of me

There’s a strange kind of light
Caressing me tonight
Pray silence my fear she is near
Bringing heaven down here

I miss your love I miss your touch
But I’m feeling you every day
And I can almost hear you say
«You’ve come a long way baby»

And now you live in heaven
But I know they let you out
To take care of me
There’s a strange kind of light
In my bedroom tonight
Pray silence my fear she is near
Bring your heaven down here

You taught me kings and queens
While stroking my hair
In my darkest hour I know you are there
Kneeling down beside me
Whispering my prayer

Yes there’s a strange kind of light
Caressing me tonight
Pray silence my fear
She is near
Bringing heaven down here

The next time that we meet
I will bow at her feet
And say wasn’t life sweet
Then we’ll prepare
To take heaven down there

Dig your polished nails into the dirt
Rip your skirt off, wipe the hurt off
You know it tears my heart out when you
Flirt with danger and any stranger

You’re not as stupid as I look
Before I could read, you wrote the book

Cursed, since your birth dear
And your worst fears have all come true

Held my hand when I got my first tattoo
I was naked when it penetrated
Told everyone I’d slept with you
Thought you’d like it, knew you wouldn’t deny it

St Peter’s gonna be unfaithful
Tell God he’s got a dirty angel

Cursed, since your birth dear
And your worst fears have all come true
Babe you’re not the first here on earth dear
‘Cause I’m still here and I’m cursed too
Cursed like you

Hush, baby sleep now
We all love you we always did
Cursed, since your birth dear
And your worst fears have all come true
Babe you’re not the first here on earth dear
‘Cause I’m still here
And I’m cursed too, cursed like you

Hush, baby sleep now
We all miss you, we always will

[Verse 1]
Queen Bitch eat the rich
I’m on the second course today
Not the first and I won’t be the worst
She’s done most of L.A
Can’t find a virgin, I can get you a surgeon
24 hours a day
Collagen Jeanie, you big lip meanie
I’m about to be blown away
Come on, sing it

[Pre-Chorus]
Take me to the place where the sunshine flows
Oh, my Sunset Rodeo

[Chorus]
Hot Fudge, here comes the judge
There’s a green card in the way
The Holy Ghost and the whole East Coast
Are moving to L.A
We’ve been dreaming of this feeling since 1988
Mother, things have got to change
I’m moving to L.A

[Verse 2]
Take the piss, always English
God bless you, Uncle Sam
You got a cool gene pool and our winter’s cruel
And God knows I love to tan
Making cents and dead Presidents
Before I could count to ten
With a nation behind me, can’t stop the limey
She’s on her back again
Come on, sing it

[Pre-Chorus]
Take me to the place where the sunshine flows
Oh, my Sunset Rodeo

[Chorus]
Hot Fudge, here comes the judge
There’s a green card in the way
The Holy Ghost and the whole East Coast
Are moving to L.A
‘Cause we’ve been dreaming of this feeling since 1988
Mother, things have got to change
I’m moving to L.A

[Bridge]
L.A. L.A. L.A
L.A. L.A. L.A
L.A. L.A. L.A

[Pre-Chorus]
Take me to the place where the sunshine flows
Oh, my Sunset Rodeo

[Chorus]
Hot Fudge, here comes the judge
There’s a green card in the way
The Holy Ghost and the whole East Coast
Are moving to L.A
‘Cause we’ve been dreaming of this feeling since 1988
Mother, things have got to change
I’m moving to
Hot Fudge, here comes the judge
There’s a green card in the way
The Holy Ghost and the whole East Coast
Are moving to L.A
‘Cause we’ve been dreaming of this feeling since 1988
Mother, things have got to change
I’m moving to L.A

[Outro]
Moving to L.A
Keep on moving, keep on moving
Keep on moving to L.A
L.A. L.A
I’m moving to L.A
Keep on moving, keep on moving on
Keep on moving, moving on
Keep on movin-moving on
Keep on moving, keep on moving on
Keep on moving, keep on moving, keep on moving, keep on moving, keep on moving on
Keep on mo-mo-mo-moving on….
…And stop

Come join the band
Come shag the damned
God I blow them away
A heart of chrome
A broken home
I got plenty to say

Who are you doing?
Don’t spoil my day
A bigger better offer baby
He’s on his way
You gotta love LA

I feel gigantic
Gonna burst a vein
I’m stopping traffic
‘Cause they dig the fame
And I’m just the same

So Ebay baby
Haven’t seen you lately
Do you still give it away
So get my peeps
To call your peeps
‘Cause we’ve got nothing to say
Don’t feed the models
Don’t look at police
Don’t go to Crenshaw boule
‘Cause whitey can get fleeced
God I love LA

I feel gigantic
Gonna burst a vein
I’m stopping traffic
‘Cause I dig the fame
I’m hearing voices, voices
Like a jumbo jay
Too many choices, choices
Gotta love LA
Californi-a .. USA baby

Who you doing baby?
Don’t spoil my day
You’ve been gloating lately baby
And I dig LA
I’d have to say

I feel gigantic
Gonna burst a vein
I’m stopping traffic
I kinda dig the fame
I’m hearing voices voices
I’ve gotta jumbo jay
Too many choices, choices
Gotta love LA
Californi-a
USA
USA
USA

[Verse 1]
There was me and my monkey
And with his dungarees and roller blades smoking filter tips
Reclining in the passenger seat of my super-charged jet black Chevrolet
He had the soft-top down (he liked the wind in his face)
He said ‘Son, you ever been to Vegas?’ I said ‘no’
He said ‘that’s where we’re gonna go — you need a change of pace’
And we hit the strip with all the wedding chapels and the neon signs
He said ‘I left my wallet in El Segundo’ and proceeded to take two grand of mine
We made tracks to The Mandalay Bay Hotel
Asked the bell boy if he’d take me and my monkey as well?
He looked in the passenger seat of my car and with a smile he said
‘If your monkey’s got that kind of money sir, then we’ve got a monkey bed!’

[Hook]
Me and my monkey
With a dream and a gun
I’m hoping my monkey don’t point that gun at anyone
Me and my monkey
Like Butch and the Sundance Kid
Trying to understand why he did what he did
Why he did what he did

[Verse 2]
We got the elevator, I hit the 33rd floor
We had a room up top with the panoramic views like nothing you’d ever seen before
He went to sleep in the bidet and when he awoke
He ran his little monkey fingers through yellow pages
Called up some escort services and ordered some okey doke
Forty minutes later there came a knock at the door
In walked this big bad ass baboon into my bedroom with three monkey whores
‘Hi! My name is Sunshine — these are my girls
Lace my palm with silver baby and oh yeah, they’ll rock your world’
So I watched pay-per-view and polished my shoes and my gun
Was diggin’ old Kurt Cobain singing ’bout lithium
There came a knock at the door and in walked Sunshine
‘What’s up? You’d better get your ass in here boy, your monkey’s having too much of a good
Time!’

[Hook]
Me and my monkey
Drove in search of the sun
Me and my monkey
Don’t point that gun at anyone
Me and my monkey
Like Billy the Kid
Trying to understand
Why he did what he did
Why he did what he did

[Verse 3]
Got tickets to see Sheena Easton, the monkey was high
Said it was a burning ambition to see her before he died
We left before encores, he couldn’t sit still
Sheena was a blast baby but my monkey was ill
We went to play black-jack, kept hitting twenty three
Couldn’t help but notice this Mexican just staring at me
Or was it my monkey? I couldn’t be sure
It’s not like you’d never seen a monkey in rollerblades and dungarees before
Now don’t test my patience cause we’re not about to run
That’s a bad ass monkey boy and he’s packing a gun
‘My name is Rodriguez’, he says with death in his eye
‘I’ve been chasing you for a long time amigos, and now your monkey’s gonna die!’

[Hook]
Me and my monkey
Drove in search of the sun
Now me and my monkey
We don’t wanna kill no mexican
But we’ve got ten itchy fingers
And one thing to declare
When the monkey is high
You do not stare, you do not stare
You do not stare…

[Outro]
Looks like we’ve got ourselves a mexican standoff here boy
Huh…
And I ain’t about to run
Put your gun down, boy
Huh huh…
How did I get mixed up with this fucking monkey anyhow?

[Verse 1]
So unimpressed but so in awe
Such a saint but such a whore
So self aware, so full of shit
So indecisive, so adamant

[Pre-Chorus 1]
I’m contemplating, thinking about thinking
It’s overrated, just get another drink and

[Chorus]
Watch me come undone
They’re selling razor blades and mirrors in the street
I pray that when I’m coming down you’ll be asleep
If I ever hurt you your revenge will be so sweet
Because I’m scum
And I’m your son
I come undone
I come undone

[Verse 2]
So rock ‘n roll, so corporate suit
So damn ugly, so damn cute
So well-trained, so animal
So need-your-love, so fuck-you-all

[Pre-Chorus 2]
I’m not scared of dying, I just don’t want to
If I stopped lying, I’d just disappoint you

[Chorus]
I come undone
They’re selling razor blades and mirrors in the street
I pray that when I’m coming down you’ll be asleep
If I ever hurt you your revenge will be so sweet
Because I’m scum
And I’m your son
I come undone

[Bridge]
So write another ballad
Mix it on a Wednesday
Sell it on a Thursday
Buy a yacht by Saturday
It’s a love song
A love song
Do another interview
Sing a bunch of lies
Tell about celebrities that I despise
And sing love songs
We sing love songs
So sincere
So sincere

[Chorus]
They’re selling razor blades and mirrors in the street
I pray that when I’m coming down you’ll be asleep
The young pretend you’re in the clouds above the sea
I’ve come undone
I am scum
Love your son
You’ve gotta love your son
You’ve gotta love your son

[Verse 1]
Hello, did you miss me?
I know I’m hard to resist
Y’all can come and help me
Pick the sweetcorn out of this
It’s hard to be humble
When you’re so fucking big
Did you ever meet a sexier male chauvinist pig

[Verse 2]
I’m gonna milk it till I turn it into cheese
Tell your babes in arms and OAP’s
Come take a piece of me

[Chorus]
If you drop me
I’ll fall to pieces on you
If you don’t see me
I don’t exist
It’s nice to meet you
Now let me go and wash my hands
Cause you just met
The world’s most handsome man
The world’s most handsome man

[Verse 3]
Y’all know who I am
I’m still the boy next door
That’s if you’re Lord Litchfield and Roger Moore
Have I gone up in the world
Or has the world gone down on me
I’m the one who put the Brits in celebrity

[Verse 4]
Give in and love it
What’s the point in hating me
You can’t argue with popularity
Well you could
But you’d be wrong

[Chorus]
If you drop me
I’ll fall to pieces on you
If you don’t need me
I don’t exist
You voted for me
Now let me see a show of hands
Here before you stands

[Bridge]
Can you make me laugh and sign this autograph
Though it’s not for me
Flip a grin, shake a thing, name a shame
Then I’m out of here
It’s not very complicated
I’m just young and overrated

[Chorus]
Please don’t drop me
I’ll fall to pieces on you
If you don’t see me
I don’t exist
It’s nice to meet you
Now let me go and wash my hands
Here before you stands
Please don’t drop me
I’ll fall to pieces on you
If you don’t need me
I don’t exist
It’s nice to meet you
Now let me see a show of hands
Cause you just met
The world’s most handsome man
The world’s most handsome man
The world’s most handsome man
The world’s most handsome man

[Verse 1 — Robbie Williams & Rose Stone]
Dont fight the feeling, relax
Oh, child the knots’ in your back
‘Cause you’ve been holding on
I feel you when you’re reaching out
I’ll talk you through memories
Just keep breathing with me
It’s time to hold my hand
And walk in to the revolution

[Verse 2 — Robbie Williams & Rose Stone]
When there’s no one to touch
And you’ve been thinking too much
You only hurt yourself
When it’s all about retribution
I see the pain in your face
And paying rent for the space
It’s time to lead you on
Come on, into revolution

[Pre-Chorus — Robbie Williams & Rose Stone]
When you can’t keep on keeping on
And everything you lean upon is all but gone
Everybody falls sometimes but love shines on
And on and on and…

[Chorus — Robbie Williams & Rose Stone]
With love in your eyes
And a flame in your heart
You’re gonna find yourself some resolution
A million miles with one step
You’ll find yourself there
Walking with the revolution

[Post-Chorus — Robbie Williams & Rose Stone]
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on)
Talk about a revolution
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on)
Rockin’ with the revolution
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on)
Taking you high, yeah

[Verse 3 — Robbie Williams & Rose Stone]
Oh, love lingers on
You’re just feeling it wrong
I know you’re tired but when it’s time to sleep
You’re gone forever
Make friends with your past
Then you can leave it at last
It’s time to find yourself
Walking with the revolution

[Pre-Chorus — Robbie Williams & Rose Stone]
When you can’t keep on keeping on
And everything you lean upon is all but gone (all but gone)
Everybody hurts sometimes but love shines on
And on and on and…

[Chorus — Robbie Williams & Rose Stone]
Time and tide’s on your side
There’s no need to hide
I feel your pain
Don’t talk to me about evolution
A milion miles with one step
You’ll find yourself there
When you’re walking with the revolution
Walking the the revolution
A milion miles with one step
And you’ll find yourself there
When you’re walking with the revolution

[Post-Chorus — Robbie Williams & Rose Stone]
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on)
Walking with the revolution
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on)
Can’t warn you [?] the revolution
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on)
Get it on
It’s all about resolution
Talk about the revolution
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on)
Revolution
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on)
Talk about the revolution
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on)
Lead you on to the revolution
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on)
Talk about the revolution, baby

[Verse 1]
Always and forever, is forever young
Your shadow on the pavement, the dark side of the sun
Got to dream the dream all over and sleep it tight
You don’t wanna sing the blues in black and white

[Pre-Chorus 2]
And it’s hope that springs eternal for everyone
If it ain’t broke then break it
Oh, the damage done

[Chorus]
Try and love somebody
Just wanna love somebody right now
There’s just no pleasing me
Try and love somebody
Just want to love somebody right now
Lady, lay your love on me

[Verse 2]
Violet in the rainbow just melts away
There’s not enough minutes in the hour or hours in the day
A song played in a circle that never skips a beat
A stranger in a country that I have yet to meet

[Pre-Chorus 2]
And it’s hope that springs eternal for everyone
Your lifetime in a second
All the damage done

[Chorus]
Trying to love somebody
Just wanna love somebody right now
Guess there’s just no pleasing me
I wanna love somebody
Just wanna love somebody right now
Lady, lay your love on me

[Bridge]
It’ll come in your sweet time, Lord
I’ve just got to let you in
The blind leading the blind, Lord
Getting underneath your skin
I can feel you in the silence
Saying let forever be
Love and only love will set you free

[Chorus]
I wanna love somebody
Wanna love somebody right now
There’s just no pleasing me
I wanna love somebody
Just wanna love somebody right now
Lady, lay your love on me

[Outro]
It’ll come in your sweet time, Lord
I’ve just gotta let you in
The blind leading the blind, Lord
Getting underneath your skin
I can feel you in the silence
Saying let forever be
Love and only love will set you free

[Verse 1]
Loose lips, sunk ships
I’m getting to grips
With what you said
No it’s not in my head
I can’t awaken the dead day after day

Why don’t we talk about it?
Why do you always doubt
That there can be a better way?
It doesn’t make me wanna stay

[Chorus]
Why don’t we break up?
There’s nothing left to say
I’ve got my eyes shut
Praying they won’t stray
And we’re not sexed up
That’s what makes the difference today
I hope you blow away

[Verse 2]
You say we’re fatally flawed
Well I’m easily bored
Is that okay?
Write me off your list
Make this the last kiss
I’ll walk away

[Pre-Chorus]
Why don’t we talk about it?
I’m only here, don’t shout it
Given time, we’ll forget
Let’s pretend we never met

[Chorus]
Why don’t we break up?
There’s nothing left to say
I’ve got my eyes shut
Praying they won’t stray
And we’re not sexed up
That’s what makes the difference today
I hope you blow away

[Bridge]
Screw you
I didn’t like your taste anyway
I chose you
And that’s all gone to waste
It’s Saturday, I’ll go out and find another you

[Chorus]
Why don’t we
Why don’t we break up
There’s nothing left to say
I’ve got my eyes shut
Praying they won’t stray
And we’re not sexed up
That’s what makes the difference today
I hope you blow away
I hope you blow away
I hope you blow away
I hope you blow away
Blow away
Blow away
Just not today

Verse 1]
I’ve sung some songs that were lame
I’ve slept with girls on the game
I’ve got my Catholic shame
Lord I’m in purgatory
Basically, it’s all come on top for me

[Pre-Chorus 1]
I wasn’t me when we met
You haven’t lost my respect
I’m here to serve and protect
What shape of insanity
Keeps leading you back to me

[Chorus]
So put your hands across the water
Oh, mushroom
Monsoon
Come soon

[Verse 2]
Don’t wanna piss on your parade
I’m here to make money and get laid
Yeah, I’m a star but I’ll fade
If you ain’t sticking your knives in me
You will be eventually
To all you Sharons and Michelles
With all your tales to sell
Save your meat money well
I’m glad that spending a night with me
Guaranteed you celebrity
[Pre-Chorus 2]
And I can’t talk in a crowd
When I’m alone I’m too loud
You’ve done your daddies proud
Thank you for keeping me company
You’ve all been so nice to me

[Chorus]
So put your hands across the water
Oh, mushroom
Monsoon
Come soon

[Bridge]
Oh Lord, I feel nothing
I know much smarter men never got this far

[Verse 3]
I’ve got so many regrets
I smoked too many cigarettes
I’ve had more blondes than brunettes
I’m not expecting your sympathy
But it’s all been too much for me

[Chorus]
So put your hands across the water
Oh, mushroom
Monsoon
Come soon
So put your hands across the water
Oh, mushroom
Monsoon
Come soon

[Verse 1]
You can’t manufacture a miracle
The silence was pitiful that day
And love is getting too cynical
Passion’s just physical these days

[Pre-Chorus 1]
You analyse everyone you meet
But get no sign, loving kind
Every night you admit defeat
And cry yourself blind

[Chorus]
If you can’t wake up in the morning
Cause your bed lies vacant at night
If you’re lost, hurt, tired or lonely
Can’t control it, try as you might
May you find that love that won’t leave you
May you find it by the end of the day
You won’t be lost, hurt, tired and lonely
Something beautiful will come your way

[Verse 2]
The DJ said on the radio
Life should be stereo each day
And the past that cast the unsuitable
Instead of some kind of beautiful
You just couldn’t wait
[Pre-Chorus 2]
All your friends think you’re satisfied
But they can’t see your soul, no, no, no
Forgot the time feeling petrified
When they lived alone

[Chorus]
If you can’t wake up in the morning
Cause your bed lies vacant at night
If you’re lost, hurt, tired or lonely
Can’t control it, try as you might
May you find that love that won’t leave you
May you find it by the end of the day
You won’t be lost, hurt, tired and lonely
Something beautiful will come your way

[Bridge]
(It’ll come your way) Some kind of beautiful
(It’ll come your way) Some kind of beautiful
(It’ll come your way) Some kind of beautiful
(It’ll come your way)

[Pre-Chorus 2]
All your friends think you’re satisfied
But they can’t see your soul, no, no, no
Forgot the time feeling petrified
When they lived alone

[Chorus]
If you can’t wake up in the morning
Cause your bed lies vacant at night
If you’re lost, hurt, tired or lonely
Can’t control it, try as you might
May you find that love that won’t leave you
May you find it by the end of the day
You won’t be lost, hurt, tired and lonely
Something beautiful will come your way
You won’t be lost, hurt, tired and lonely
Something beautiful will come your way

[Verse 1]
Come and hold my hand
I wanna contact the living
Not sure I understand
This role I’ve been given
I sit and talk to God
And he just laughs at my plans
My head speaks a language
I don’t understand

[Chorus]
I just wanna feel real love
Feel the home that I live in
Cause I got too much life
Running through my veins
Going to waste

[Verse 2]
I don’t wanna die
But I ain’t keen on living either
Before I fall in love
I’m preparing to leave her
Scare myself to death
That’s why I keep on running
Before I’ve arrived
I can see myself coming

[Chorus]
I just wanna feel real love
Feel the home that I live in
Cause I got too much life
Running through my veins
Going to waste
And I need to feel real love
And a life ever after
I can not get enough

I just wanna feel real love
Feel the home that I live in
I got too much love
Running through my veins
To go to waste

I just wanna to feel real love
And a life ever after
There’s a hole in my soul
You can see it in my face
It’s a real big place

[Outro]
Come and hold my hand
I wanna contact the living
Not sure I understand
This role I’ve been given
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand

How peculiar

I am all of the above babe
Johnny long strokes to the grave
Saving all the stamps and spend it on a kettle

Rub me rub me up right lovely
If you lick it, then lick it battery
Good and properly all night if you want

I haven’t got a clue what to do with you
I need for you to love me so much
Jesus what am I going to do with this crush
Just get the old fella and wack it up against her tush

How peculiar

Bend your long legs against the sofa
In the Dorchester you can get your All Bran
I’m not into hard sports

Oh I haven’t got a clue what to do with you
Jesus all the things my head is going through
God what am I going to do with this crush
Just wack the old man out and get it up against your tush
How peculiar

Jesus what am I to do man
I am a depressed man
Not sure what I’m doing all of the day
How peculiar

I am all of the above man
I have what you want man
If you want me here I am
Come and get it baby
Uhh!

[Intro]
What you do speaks so loud
I cannot hear what you say
Except for the occasional word
So fate`s a sentimental sight
It bothers me
No longer king of bloke and bird

[Bridge]
All of my life
Searching hard
Down in the wilds
Of love

[Chorus]
Summon me now
Summon my life away
Summon me on to another day

[Verse 1]
A hand through the clouds
Keeps knocking me down
It’s no less than I deserve
They build museums
I don’t visit them
I’ve made enough trouble of my own

[Bridge]
Into the night
Searching hard
Look for the lights
Of love

[Chorus]
Summon me now
Summon my life away
Summon me on to another day

Summon the evening, winter waves
I am falling down again
I sing from the chaos in my heart
My heart

[Outro]
Then comes the evening
That makes life worth living
Shoving the shoes out in the light
She walks in
I can hear her

[Verse 1]
I’m on a mission
To abuse my position
Abuse it with you
Love, I’m a cynical bitch
I’m gonna scratch that itch
With a bitch like you

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Modern thinking’s made me miserable
Everything is unforgivable
If not for you I wouldn’t come at all

[Chorus]
Find a place to crash
(Boom boom, boom boom love it up)
Move your boney ass
(Boom boom, boom boom love it up)
Love me like I’m cash
(Boom boom, boom boom love it up)
You can feel the clash
(Boom boom, boom boom love it up)
(Guitar!)

[Verse 2]
If there’s a freak in here
Looking for someone like me
I fit their description perfectly
Boom boom boom
I bet they’ll resent you
They would if they met you
Met you with me

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Every move you make is poetry
They all fake what you do naturally
If not for you I wouldn’t come at all

[Chorus ]
Find a place to crash
(Boom boom, boom boom love it up)
Move your boney ass
(Boom boom, boom boom love it up)
Love me like I’m cash
(Boom boom, boom boom love it up)
You can see the clash
(Boom boom, boom boom love it up)

[Bridge]
Kiss me with your mouth
Teach me with your brain
All right

[Outro]
They say I say when I say nothing at all
It leaves a taste in my stomach and it’s no taste at all
I can’t sing, I can’t dance, that don’t stop me at all
Its a ball when I’ll call, if I call you at all
Love is the reason but it won’t pay my rent
Only baloney fill your dish in the dent
I won’t be happy till the money’s been spent
I forget to forget, oh fuck it, oh fuck it
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

[Verse 1]
You see the trouble with me
I’ve got a head full of fuck
I’m a basket case
I don’t think I can love, love, love
You see the trouble with you
Is you’re in love with me
What a strange thing to do
What a brave place to be

[Chorus 1]
So we dive on sunset strip
A heart so deep I drown in it
And as it breaks I swim through cracks
And leave with words I can’t take back

[Verse 2]
You see the trouble with me
Monkey see monkey do
There’s no you in tomorrow
A better offer came through
You see the trouble with you
There’s no trouble with you
So when you say that you love me
That stops me loving you

[Chorus 2]
So she stays on sunset strip
A heart so full I drown in it
She’s waiting for my words to break
The one true love I couldn’t make

[Bridge]
Wo wo wo yeah yeah yeah

[Chorus 3]
So she walks that golden mile
Men will try and catch her eye
We both know what could have been
On sunset strip a broken dream

[Verse 1]
For those about to die, we salute you
For those about to cry, we love you
For those of us who live in fear
Of Happy Christmas and New Year
I raise a toast to you

[Chorus 1]
And if it hurts to be so blind
Why don’t you try being kind

[Verse 2]
They’ve decided to become
A little more pro-active
Creep upon you while you sleep
And make you less attractive

[Chorus 2]
Born without a spine
Why don’t you try being kind

[Verse 3]
For those out drinking at their mother’s wake
You’ll find a way to soldier on
For those whose love evaporates
I pray you’ll find where you belong

[Bridge]
Oh, the words I have repressed
Are coming out today I guess
It’s justice, not respect I’m after
And that just leaves comtempt
For you all

[Verse 4]
I am just a simple man
With simple expectations
With deep regrets, they’re seldom met
God speed my generation

[Chorus 3]
And with Crowley on my mind
I should try being kind

[Outro]
For those about to die
We salute you
For those about to cry
We love you
For those about to die
We salute you
For those about to cry
We love you

[Verse 1]
Don’t let your eyes tell the brain
You should feel ashamed
Everyone needs it, baby
And I feel the same
Didn’t quite catch your name
Hush, hush, hush
Don’t say a thing
Let’s see what the night will bring
It might be everything

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Oh, it hurts
When you’re too blind to see
Please don’t read my mind
I tell the truth to me

[Chorus]
Sin sin sin
Look where we’ve been
And where we are tonight
Hate the sin, not the sinner
I’m just after a glimmer of love and life
Deep inside

[Verse 2]
Hush hush hush
To speak is a sin
And neither of us need rescuing
Just relax
It’s what Jesus would do
We’re made in his image, baby
Let’s ride this thing through

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Oh, it hurts
When you’re too blind to see
What about us?
Well, it was just for me

[Chorus]
Sin sin sin
Look where we’ve been
And where we are tonight
Hate the sin, not the sinner
I’m just after a glimmer of love and life
Deep inside

[Bridge]
I won’t sing of amore
It don’t sound sincere
Love is a cliché
But if it’s not here
I’ll disappear

[Chorus]
Sin sin sin
Look where we’ve been
And where we are tonight
Hate the sin, not the sinner
I’m just after a glimmer of love and life
Deep inside
Deep inside

[Outro]
It’s love
Clean sex joy
I love you
You love my hate
And it feels inside
Feels inside
Feels inside

[Intro]
Woohoo!

[Verse 1]
Hey, hey, here comes no one
Another friend to have a go on
And she asks me, do I miss her when she’s gone?
And I reply «as much as I miss anyone»

[Chorus 1]
Oh! woohoo
And I’ll be your gay friend
Cause your marriage never ends
Till we fuck and fight again
There’s a space between us
So jump into my bed
Pretend the world is dead
Always in my head is a face between us

[Verse 2]
Hey Lord, forgive us if we’re wrong
Make sure that he never hears this song
And she says that I’m the opposite of a Hallmark card
She asked me how I’m feeling
When I don’t want to think that hard

[Chorus 1]
Oh! woohoo!
And I’ll be your gay friend
Cause your marriage never ends
Till we fuck and fight again
Theres a space between us
Jump into my bed
Pretend the world is dead
Always in my head is a face between us

[Bridge]
It’s the late show now
How does the late show end
Well, if god is in the details
Thank God that you’re my friend
I have a friend again
You’re my friend again
My gay friend

[Chorus 2]
Oh! woohoo! erhh
So jump into my bed
Pretend the world is dead
Always in my head is a space between us
And I’ll be your gay friend
As your marriage never ends
Till we fuck and fight again
There’s a space between us
Oh! woohoo!

[Verse 1]
Let me lie down
Please don’t wake me
Nothing`s sacred
And no one save me
In my black eye
I can feel it
Moving closer
Can’t you hear it

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Only gift you gave to me
Was self-fullfilling prophecy
I need to change the sounds that shaped my life

[Chorus]
And if you die before I leave
What on earth becomes of me
Look around, there’s no one here
To love me and hold me

[Verse 2]
Take me dancing
I love music
Keep on singing
We won’t lose it
Picture me there
Missing no one
If your heart run free
Why can’t we go on
[Pre-Chorus 2]
Go on to till they kick us out
We’ve everything to talk about
I could bring the song into your life

[Chorus]
If you should die before I leave
What on earth becomes of me
Look around, there’s no one here
To love me and hold me

[Bridge]
Maybe I’ve been away too long
I know I’m not always right but is that wrong
They say there’s nothing I can do
But talk to strangers and wait for you

[Chorus]
If you should die before I leave
What on earth becomes of me
Look around, there’s no one here
To love me and hold me

And if you die before I leave
What on earth becomes of me
Look around, there’s no one here
To love me and hold me
Oooh ooh ooh!

[Verse 1]
There’s no earthly way of knowing
What was in your heart
When it stopped going
The whole world shook
A storm was blowing through you
Waiting for God to stop this
And up to your neck in darkness
Everyone around you was corrupted
Saying something

[Pre-Chorus 1]
There’s no dignity in death
To sell the world your last breath
We’re still fighting over
Everything you left

[Chorus]
I saw you standing at the gates
When Marlon Brando passed away
You had that look upon your face
Advertising space
No one learned from your mistakes
We let our prophets go to waste
All that’s left in any case
Is advertising space

[Verse 2]
Through your eyes the world was burning
Please be gentle, I’m still learning
You seemed to say as you kept turning up
They poisoned you with compromise
At what point did you realize
Everybody loves your life but you

[Pre-Chorus 2]
A special agent for the man
Through Watergate and Vietnam
No one really gave a damn
Did you think the CIA did

[Chorus]
I saw you standing at the gates
When Marlon Brando passed away
You had that look upon your face
Advertising space
No one learned from your mistake
We let our prophets go to waste
All that’s left in any case
Is advertising space

No one learned from your mistakes
We let our prophets go to waste
All that’s left in any case
Is advertising space

[Outro]
I’ve seen your daughter
Man, she’s cute
I was scared but I wanted to
Boy, she looks a lot like you

[Verse 1]
I used to live ’round here
I was the boy with the flash clothes
She was the girl with the acid stare
I saw her at the place
You know she knows you know
How she shakes
When she jacks her body
To the sounds of Oran Juice Jones
And Jocelyn Brown, oh

[Chorus]
Spread your wings
Before they fall apart
Home is where the hurt is, darlin’
Follow your heart

[Verse 2]
So she walks into this dead end bar
Sticks her handbag on the chair
So she walks into this dead end bar
Puts her handbag on the chair
And she weighs the words we shared
When we were 15 and still cared
Cause she feels I’m the scar from the wound that time can’t heal

[Bridge]
And I said
Don’t let your dreams out of your head
Stick it to the man instead
Don’t fool your heart
Lying about the feelings that you had back then
(They think they know us but they won’t ever know)
Did you try to change your life
(They think they know us but they won’t ever know)
Did you ever try to change your life
(They think they know us but they won’t ever know)
You repeat and repeat and repeat
(They think they know us but they won’t ever know)
Now what’s up with that

[Verse 3]
Now she loves somebody else
In flash clothes
She was the girl with the acid stare
And now she paid to have one of those
And she weighs the word she says
And she knows you exist
Now she feels I’m the scar from the wound that time can’t heal, oh

[Chorus]
Spread your wings
Before they fall apart
Home is where the hurt is, darlin’
Follow your heart
Spread your wings
Before they fall apart
Home is where the hurt is, darlin’
Follow your heart
Heart, heart

[Verse 1]
So I sing a song to reel ’em in
It’s a song I’ve sung before
And a song I’m gonna sing again
I mean every word
I don’t mean a single one of them

[Refrain]
Oh Lord, make me pure
But not yet

[Verse 2]
Tell a joke, tell it twice
If no one else is laughing then why am I
I split my sides both times and laugh until I cry

[Refrain]
Oh Lord, please make me pure
But not yet

[Verse 3]
I don’t have to try
I just dial it in
I’ve never found a job that for me was worth bothering
I got a ton of selfish genes and lazy bones beneath this skin

[Refrain]
Oh Lord, make me pure
But not yet

[Verse 4]
Smoking kills, sex sells
I’ve got one hand in my pocket
But the other one looks cool as hell
I know I’m gonna die so my revenge is living well

[Refrain]
Oh Lord, make me pure
But not yet

[Bridge]
I stopped praying so I hope this song will do
I wrote it all for you
I’m not perfect but you don’t mind that, do you?
I know you’re there to pull me through, aren’t you?

[Verse 5]
So I look for love
I like the search
And I’ll be standing for election all across the known universe
Every president gets the country she deserves
[Refrain]
Oh Lord, make me pure
But not yet

[Verse 6]
And I’ve been seeing somebody’s wife
She said she’d leave him for me and I said that wasn’t wise
You can’t lie to a liar because of all the lies

[Refrain]
Oh Lord, please make me pure
Not yet

[Verse 1]
First they ignore you
Then laugh at you and hate you
Then they fight you, then you win
When the truth dies, very bad things happen
They’re being heartless again

[Chorus 1]
I know it’s coming, there’s gonna be violence (Want you to love me)
I’ve taken as much as I’m willing to take (Want you to be)
Why do you think we should suffer in silence? (The heavens above me)
When a heart is broken, there’s nothing to break (Eternally)

[Verse 2]
You’ve been mixing with some very heavy faces
The boys have done a bit of bird
They don’t kill their own and they all love their mothers
But you’re out of your depth, son, have a word

[Chorus 2]
I know it’s coming, there’s gonna be violence (Want you to love me)
I’ve taken as much as I’m willing to take (Want you to be)
Why do you think we should suffer in silence? (The heavens above me)
The heart is broken, there’s nothing to break (Eternally)

[Bridge]
All is wonderful in past lives
Dreaming of the sun she warms
You should see me in the afterlife
Picking up the sons of dust
When you think we’re lost, we’re exploring
What you think is worthless I’m adoring
You don’t want the truth, truth is boring
I’ve got this fever, need to
Leave the house, leave the car
Leave the bad men where they are
I’ll leave a few shells in my gun
And stop me staring at the Sun

[Chorus 3]
I know it’s coming, there’s gonna be violence (Want you to love me)
I’ve taken as much as I’m willing to take (Want you to be)
Why do you say we should suffer in silence? (The heavens above me)
My heart is broken, there’s nothing to break (Eternally)

[Chorus 2]
I know it’s coming, there’s gonna be violence (Want you to love me)
I’ve taken as much as I’m willing to take (Want you to be)
Why do you think we should suffer in silence? (The heavens above me)
The heart is broken, there’s nothing to break (Eternally)

[Verse 1]
Here I stand victorious
The only man who made you come
When you cried, you cried for us
And when we died, you died alone
Gravity’s calling
Don’t go home
Where are we

Did what I could for one of us
I always thought it was for you
And when I lied
Oh I lied for us
Because you never heard the truth
I am lying alone tonight
Don’t go home
Where are we

[Chorus]
If we are ghosts
(A long long time ago)
It looks like we could have made it baby
We are ghosts
(A long long time)
Me and you
We are ghosts
(A long long time ago)
We could have made it
We are ghosts
(A long long time)
Me and you
(Ago)

[Verse 2]
Look at the time it’s taken me
To get away from what was said
I’ll never leave
I’ll always love
You know that all those words are dead
Buried at yours tonight
Move aside
I’m taking you home

[Bridge]
On the radio
She was that summer song
Packing them in
Making them dance
A law of her own
Taking the time to sing it
I don’t need you
But I’m lost
Lost without you tonight
Have you no heart
Where are we

[Outro]
Hold a love like gold
(We are ghosts)
Then fold
They’re taking down our satellite
(We are ghosts)
Josephine, I follow your star tonight
(We are ghosts)
If not tonight then when will she say
We’re not ghosts

Bah-Um
Bah-Um
Bah-Um
Bah-Um
Bah-Um

Sun Is Shining
So Why Am I Feeling The Cold?
Bah-Um
Bah-Um

Not Surprising
Something Has Fallen From The Fold
Bah-Um
Bah-Um
Bah-Um

Lonestar Rising
God Only Knows Where I’ll Go
Bah-Um
Bah-Um

Oh What Timing
And How Blue Is The Tone
Bah-Um
Bah-Um
Seems Like I Was Always Drunk
I Lost Myself In Someone’s Song
And When All Is Said And Done
I Only Wanna Feel The Sun
Bah-Um

Every Others Passed To Remind Of The Time
All The Lovers
Living In Limbo Divine
Bah-Um
Bah-Um
Bah-Um

Every Reason
Has Every Reason To Go
Bah-Um
Bah-Um

All The Seasons Melt Into One Like The Snow
Bah-Um
Bah-Um

Seems Like I Was Always Drunk
I Lost Myself In Someone’s Song
And When All Is Said And Done
I Only Wanna Feel The Sun
Bah-Um
No Sensation
Not Even Tears Rolling Down
Bah-Um

Conversation
Echoes Like Ghosts On The Town
Bah-Um
Bah-Um

Lonestar Rising
Bah-Um
God Only Knows Where I’ll Go

Oh What Timing
And How Blue Is The Tone
Bah-Um
Bah-Um

Seems Like I Was Always Drunk
I Lost Myself In Someone’s Song
And When All Is Said And Done
I Only Wanna Feel The Sun
Bah-Um
Bah-Um

[Intro: MC Tofty]
This is «T» to the motherfucking «Ofty»

Don’t kick my dog, dickhead
Don’t beep at me, dickhead
Why’d you mug me off in my car, dickhead
Why you disrespecting my bro, dickhead
There’s a dickhead in your mouth
A dickhead on parade
Do not have kids
Don’t want dickheads to be made, dickhead
Why you disrespecting my bro, dickhead
Why’d you piss me off in first class, dickhead
I’m not sitting here to be treated like a dickhead
Bumbaclart, King Rasclart

(Give me my lighter)

[Chorus: Robbie Williams]
Isn’t it lovely
That we can still be good friends
They say you’ve gone off me
Don’t be so sloppy, baby

I know you still want me
Because I’m so lovely, baby

Why’d you say bad things ’bout my bro, dickhead
I’ve got nothing for you, dickhead
Go to bed, dickhead

See your mate over there in the corner
He’s a dickhead too like you, dickhead

That we can still be good friends
I know you still want me
Because I’m so lovely, baby
Isn’t it lovely

[Outro: Robbie Williams]
I tell you what
There’s one out every night
It’s not one, just like
All do it and they’re buggers
I know you’re coming over lalalala
You sound like Snoopy
A rugged Snoopy, woahhhhoooo
You dickheads are spoiling it
For tits like us
Dickhead

This is how I pray in the summertime
This is how I pray in the summer
Got my glass of shandy, now I feel fine
This is how I pray yeah
The more you say, the more you pray
The less it’s getting you down
The more you pray, the more you stay
The less it’s getting you down

All the time, leaves falling all around
Wintertime follows suit
Little bunnys freezing in the snow
Winter’s such an ugly brute
Mid city blues gettin’ you down
Take a brake from the strain
Get out your car, drink a glass of wine
Admit it, you feel great
It’s the summertime

This is how I play in the summertime
This is how I pray in the summer
Got my glass of shandy, now I feel fine
This is how I pray
This is how I pray in the summertime
This is how we play in the summer
Got my glass of shandy, now I feel fine
This is how I pray yeah
And if your love has met it’s sad refrain
Believe me, you will love again
All the best lain plans of mice n men go wrong
You can hear it in this song

This is how I pray for the summertime
This is how I play in the summer
What’s mine is yours, yours is mine
This is how I pray yeeeaaahhhhhhh
Ohh ohh ohh
Yeeeaaahhhhhhh

You’ve got the funky drama in 89
This is how I play yeeaaahhh

Ohh ohh ohh
Oohhhhh oohhh

The monties, the roses, blockin’ all your noses
Wearing baggy clothes and no buffalo poses
Bantallas, droppy looking fellas
Wilt up in the clubs, football fox no mallas
A doogie dreadlocks, buzzin up ya socks
Big fish, little fish, cardboard box
So gimme French kiss I love you voodoo ray
I dream of santa anna on the road to mandalay
In the summertime
When the weather is hot
In the summertime
When the weather is hot
On my mind
In the summertime
When the weather ist hot
In the summertime
In the summertime
When the weather ist hot
On my mind
In the summertime
On my mind
I got shivers down my spine
On my mind
Happiness is surfacin
On my mind
On my mind

[Verse 1]
Picking up the story from where I left off
It’s 1990 now so school can fuck off
I got no GCSEs, nothing higher than a D
I couldn’t tell my mum because she’d batter me
Me and Tate sat on the bowling green, life was a shitter
We had five quid between us and bought us six cans of bitter
I took me ten Benson home and I smoked through the sorrow
If I could just avoid me mum maybe I’ll tell her tomorrow
I stumbled through the door and said «Mum, it’s like this.»
She said «That man’s been on the phone and you’ve made the list!
You’re in that boy band, son, come and giz a kiss!»
Phoned up Martin and Rich and carried on getting pissed
«Boys, I don’t believe it, I’m gonna be famous!
Pick you up in a Porsche and buy you lots of trainers.»
I met the other guys, one seemed like a cock
I think it’s gonna be like New Kids on The Block

[Chorus]
(I only wanted to get down)
I can’t be bothered, cause I’m lazy
I hate those that hate me
I can’t forgive and it’s crazy, baby
(I’m making trouble in this town)
Now I’m a video star
Do you know who you are, baby?
(For the five of us)

[Verse 2]
I adopted four brothers, some I liked more than others
One was like a brother from another mother
But the lead singer made it hard to like him
And I still loved him, despite him
The first three months, you know, I nearly quit
I played snooker with my dad he said «Don’t be a dick!
Unload the bullets, your mind is a gun
You’re gonna shoot yourself when they’re number one»

[Chorus]
(I only wanted to get down)
I can’t be bothered, cause I’m lazy
I hate those that hate me
I can’t forgive and it’s crazy, baby
(I’m making trouble in this town)
Now I’m a video star
Do you know who you are, baby?
(For the five of us)

[Verse 3]
Now it’s dinner with Versace, lunch with Princess Diana
And I’m gonna get battered if I go out with my manner
Cause as much as we were loved we were also hated
The boys got jealous cause the girls got plated
Now we’re famous and that, and we’re dancing and that
And I’m thinking «I can sing, why am I stood at the back?»
So fuck the band, give me sambuca and gak
Now we’re all a bag of nerves and not a band of brothers

[Chorus]
(I only wanted to get down)
I can’t be bothered, cause I’m lazy
I hate those that hate me
I can’t forgive and it’s crazy, baby
(I’m making trouble in this town)
Now I’m a video star
Do you know who you are, baby?
(For the five of us)

[Verse 4]
And now it’s breaking my heart because the dream’s turned to shit
It ain’t broke but I’ll break it in a little bit
And I’m always in trouble but I’ve stopped saying sorry
Everybody’s worried
«What the fuck’s wrong with Robbie?
He’s not answering his phone, he’s not talking to me
I saw him on the telly at Glastonbury.»
And now I’m running away from everything that I’ve been
And I’m pissed and I’m fucked and I’m only nineteen
I can’t conform no more, I can’t perform no more
But the boys know I’m fucked and so they show me the door
And if truth be told I wasn’t fit enough to stay
So I put my head down and walked away

That was the 90s; 90 to 95

[Chorus]
(I only wanted to get down)
I can’t be bothered, cause I’m lazy
I hate those that hate me
I can’t forgive and it’s crazy, baby
(I’m making trouble in this town)
Now I’m a video star
Do you know who you are, baby?
(For the five of us)

[Verse 1]
I smoked Consulates and Park Drive
Drank Nookie Brown, learned how to skive
Polo mints to hide my breath from my Mum
Did a little weed cause it felt like fun
Did a little speed if my friend had some
Nicked Volkswagen badges, I’m a Beastie Boys son
Me so horny, me so young
And I still get my washing done
Auntie Jo died of cancer
God didn’t have an answer
Rhythm was a dancer
Any room for a chancer
That’s me in the corner, thanks Sir
Wore a Troop track suit, British Knight shoes
Kangol hat like L.L. Cools
Before I was having it, having it large
They nicked the B.M.X. from out my garage
Knew it was Tier from off the estate
Cause every time he see me he smiled like we were mates
Then on in, I’d have to walk to me Nan’s
And I’ll dream my dreams through a sea of prams
Like a hooligan on the football stands
And I throw the V’s to Leeds and West Ham
And then I ran, I ran so far away
Down Scotia Road to a taxi bay
Then I ran again cause I couldn’t pay
Young Muslim didn’t get his fare that day
I apologise today

[Chorus]
Things look better when they start
That’s how the 80’s broke my heart

[Verse 2]
And who are you calling ‘poof’?
You like Wham! man
I hate that stuff
And then my Granddad died
And left a hole in the family
And lots of women had to nanny me
School was a laugh, they didn’t have A.D.D
Thick was the term they used for me
Over and over, repeatedly, over and over
Take my breath away
Pass the bidley bidley bidley bidley bong
Pass it on the left hand side
Right turn, Clyde
That girl in the fourth year got pregnant
She was raised Catholic, brilliant
I cried, she cried, we cried
Her youth died
Drank cider in the cemetery
The year above us had discovered ‘E’
And I said it weren’t for me
Twelve pounds fifty
I could rob me mum’s purse and buy one off Chalky
Met a girl on Monday
Drank fizzy pop on Tuesday
Fingered her on Wednesday
And on Thursday and Friday
And on Saturday
Dumped by Sunday

[Chorus]
Things look better when they start
That’s how the 80’s broke my heart
The wonder years I’ve played my part
That’s how the 80’s broke my heart

[Verse 3]
Like I said
I lost my virginity to a girl called Anne-Marie
Well, she said she fancied me
And then she said «Fuck me» and I thought fuck me
I’m all talk and it’ll be over too quickly
And it was but I couldn’t care less
I’d seen a girl’s part, made a mess on her dress
Oh yes, you’re now rocking with the best
Second person in my year that had seen a breast
I’m in my 30s now and I’m still impressed
Why the Falklands Mum, and what have they done?
Where do girls come from, where do girls come from, where do girls come from?
It’s the 80’s, what you looking at, you mong?
So young, so long, so young, so long…
Too short, so long
What you looking at, you mong?
Too short, so long, too short, so long
So long…

[Verse 1]
In my young life I have received
Callers as though they were Christmas Eve
I’m disappointed and I don’t know why
She gave me laughter and hope, and a sock in the eye

[Verse 2]
In my young life I know something now
I’ve never tried to create a wow
Wows are few, frustration more common
Now I can feel in my soul, that’s why gave the come-on

[Chorus]
Kiss me with your mouth
Your love is better than wine
Kiss me with your mouth
Your love is better than wine
But wine is all I have
Will your love ever be mine?

[Verse 3]
Faces fall before my feet
Like blood onto a clean white sheet
When I grow old I won’t forget
To innocence my only debt

[Verse 4]
Wow I feel so fresh today
Barefoot in the snow, to make love in the hay
The stars are bright in the abyss
Now I can feel ya in my arms, I explode inside your kiss

[Chorus]
Kiss me with your mouth
Your love is better than wine
But wine is all I have
Will your love ever be mine?

[Bridge]
Kiss me
Boom boom boom
Boom boom boom
Boom boom boom
Boom boom boom
(cos — cos — cos- cosmic forces)
Boom boom boom
Boom boom boom
Boom boom boom
(cosmic forces)
Boom boom boom
Boom boom boom
Boom boom boom
(cos — cos — cos- cosmic forces)
Boom boom boom
Boom boom boom

[Chorus]
Kiss me with your mouth
Your love is better than wine
Kiss me with your mouth
Your love is better than wine
But wine is all I have
Will your love ever be mine?

Can you hear me?

In your face
There’s nowt left
They have defaced
The marks you left
Upon the wall

The writing’s now not there at all
Can you stand what you stood for
Are you more normal then before?

Goodbye to the normals
Goodbye to the normals

In your place
There’s just chaps
The kids aren’t alright
They know
They’re born today

Reaching out to feel the sun
At the time it seemed like fun
I was there when you got done
Lived for two weeks by the surf
We used to know what we were worth
Before the normals fell to earth
Goodbye to the normals
Goodbye to the normals

Whatever happened
To the mean mortals crew
The fine young casuals blew a fuse
And so the Burslem lads
Now that they’re all dads
They meant so much to me
It makes me sad

In your wake
There’s nowt left

[Verse 1]
Suburbia’s a slipstream to a memory
Of a time when you were close to me
I pretend
I’m there again
I close my eyes and see you
Better than before
Then I feel you touch me
And it’s 1984
I know what you will say
Before you start
In my heart

[Chorus]
We’re the Pet Shop Boys
We’re the Pet Shop Boys
We’re the Pet Shop Boys
We’re the Pet Shop Boys

[Verse 2]
Every thought’s a fashion
Or a crime
And every boy is just
A waste of time
But I pretend
It was different then
Maybe it’s a habit
Maybe it’s a sin
But I find out when I try it on
It crawls beneath my skin
Once it gets inside me
It won’t go
Now I know

[Chorus]
We’re the Pet Shop Boys
We’re the Pet Shop Boys
We’re the Pet Shop Boys
We’re the Pet Shop Boys

[Spoken Interlude]
Rent
Shopping
Being boring
It’s alright
It’s a sin
I’m not scared
In denial
I want a dog
I want a lover
Can you forgive her?
Do I have to?

[Interlude]
What have I? What have I?
What have I done to deserve this?
What have I? What have I?
What have I done to deserve this?

[Chorus]
We’re the Pet Shop Boys
We’re the Pet Shop Boys
We’re the Pet Shop Boys
We’re the Pet Shop Boys

[Verse 1]
When he saw her getting of the bus
It seemed to wipe away the years
Her face was older, just a little rough
But her eyes were still so clear
He drank his coffee and he hurried out
Across before she walked away
Then he approached her like a little child
Too scared for what he had to say

[Chorus]
«Hello, Louise
Remember me?
Now should we part
Or stay awhile?
As if we were still lovers»

[Verse 2]
She took a moment just to recognise the man she’d known so well before
And as he started to apologise
Lose any bitterness she bore
She gently put her finger on his lips
To let him know she understood
And with her suitcase standing on the floor
Embraced him like a lover would

[Chorus]
He told louise
«You look so good
It’s just you see
You make me feel
As if we were still lovers»

It’s not always true that time heals all wounds
There are wounds that you don’t wanna heal
The memories of something really good
Something truly real, that you never found again

As if we were still lovers

And though they talked for just a little time
Before she said she had to go
He saw the meeting as a tiny sign
That told him all he had to know

And so Louise
Waved from the bus
And as she left
She gave that smile
As if they were still lovers

It’s not always true that time heals all wounds
There are wounds that you don’t wanna heal
The memories of something really good
Something truly real, that i’ve never found again

Size of which is paradoxic the only way you’re gonna stop this
In the vessel there’s a switch in the middle
You really shouldn’t fiddle cause its toxic
Listen up ‘cos it’s a red light
And the pressure’s blowing up tight
There’s a skism in the time mechanism
There’s a skism in the time mechanism
Never touch that switch
Even if you want to
You don’t know what it can do
Never touch that switch, even if you want to
You don’t know what it can do

See the futures in the distance
I know I’m facing some resistance
Getting back within the blink of a bubble
Time machine never gives us any trouble
There’s a riot down in Shelton
Only minutes after Brixton but this city never made it on the telly
Or the rumble of the nations underbelly

Never touch that switch, even if you want to
You don’t know what it can do
Never touch that switch, even if you want to
You don’t know what it can do
Know you’re heading for a meltdown
And you’re living in a tin town
Thinking that you’re gonna be somebody
Living in the land of milk and honey
Listen up ‘cos it’s a red light
And the futures blowing up tight
There’s a skism in the time mechanism
There’s a skism in the time mechanism

Never touch that switch, even if you want to. You don’t know what it can do
Never touch that switch, even if you want to. You don’t know what it can do
Never touch that switch, even if you want to. You don’t know what it can do
Never touch that switch, even if you want to. You don’t know what it can do

[Intro]
Principal actors to the stage please
Act One is about to begin in eight seconds

[Verse 1]
First you can’t act
Now you can’t stop
(What’s my motivation)
I used to like you a lot
(I was the class nerd)
Exactly who I’m supposed to be
(I’m totally Strasberg)
You play a Doctor on TV
(What you’re doing is so brave)
Deep down you’re dirty but you try
(I’m a good person)
The truth would break you so you lie
(I want my work to matter)
It’s in the choices that you make
(I want to inspire)
No talent, just fate

[Chorus]
I don’t know where you begin
I end, we start again
They need you, love
We all watch the actor acting
The actor acting

[Verse 2]
Good from far but far from good
(All I have is my instinct)
You love to act, I wish you would
(It’s not acting, It’s reacting)
Act like you’re not from out of space
(When I’m on stage I feel alive)
You know ambition isn’t grace
(For me it’s the craft)
Made of sex, Maida Vale
(Would I do better in New York)
You are the Alpha Male
(I’m just too pretty for that role)
You are the good, you are the great
(The words have power)
Now let me fill you with my hate

[Chorus]
I don’t know where you begin
I end, we start again
They need you, love
We all watch the actor acting

[Outro]
In the future
Everybody will be anonymous
For fifteen minutes
You are, we all are, a test card
The stars of CCTV
We are the nature of the Beast

[Intro]
Can we do it again?
Take that, take that

[Chorus 1]
You alright star
No star
You alright star
No star
You alright star
No star
I don ‘t feel proper

[Verse 1]
I went to the Dr. to get a prescription
I told him little fact but lots of fiction
About a bad back that I ain’t got
He tried to sell me faith healing, I think not
I want Xanax, Vicodin and Oxycontin
Funky fill the form out so I can drop ’em
Got all these demons and I can’t stop ’em
To tell you the truth, Doc, I might have a problem
Robert Williams, take one Adderall
With water in the morning
As if I’m goin’ to take one tablet
I’m Keith Moon, dickhead

[Chorus 2]
He said this one’s to take you up
He said this one’s to take you down
When I take ’em I don’t feel sound
And I look rather round

[Chorus 1]
You alright star
No star
You alright star
No star
You alright star
Five star
I don ‘t feel proper

[Verse 2]
You know what, Doc, it’s alright and all
I just heart me leg, it’s not terminal
But a pain killer could help for what’s wrong with me knee
And I’m a little bit down from too much tea
Got my own collection, can’t get an erection
If I take ’em too long they’ll fuck me complexion
That’s right, If I take ’em for like more than a few days in a row I get that haunted look

Give me loads of pills
Give me loads of pills
Give me loads of pills
Give me loads of pills

[Chorus 2]
He said this one’s to take you up
He said this one’s to take you down
When I take ’em I don’t feel sound
And I look rather round

[Chorus 1]
You alright star
No star
You alright star
No star
You alright star
Five star
I don’t feel proper

[Verse 3]
Now if you go to the barber shop long enough then you’re gonna get a hair cut
If go to the doctors regular, then you gots to be a fuck up
Now, I’ve got 5 or 6 if I’m at a loss
Do I have a history of drug abuse, no, I never tick that box
And I know one or two of you are gonna be really really cross
But the drugs don’t work, prescription pills are boss
Glory days are gone and we’ve all stopped havin’ it
No raves no more, just bedside cabinet
Sleepers are great but don’t start dabbing it
The world carries on spinning, we’re mad, innit?
Take that, take that, innit?

[Chorus 2]
He said this one’s to take you up
He said this one’s to take you down
When I take ’em I don’t feel sound
And I look rather round

[Chorus 1]
You alright star
No star
You alright star
No star
You alright star
Five star
I don’t feel proper

[Chorus 3]
You alright star
No star
Are you five star
No star
Are you alright star
Five star
I don’t feel proper

[Verse 4]
Know what, doc
It’s not like I’ve been doin’ any research or anything
But if you can give me any of the following pills
I’d be very, very greatful cause I feel poorly
So that’s Codeine, Morphine, Opium, Methadone
Menocrabedene, Hydroanoxycodeine
Anodyne, Buprenorphine, Butorphanol
Adderall, Doral
Work with me, antidepressants
But not Saint John’s Wort
Cause I can get that at Boots

[Intro]
Oh, Madonna, Madonna
Oh, Madonna, Madonna
Oh, Madonna, Madonna

[Verse 1]
I don’t miss you
Just who you used to be
And you don’t ring true
So please stop calling me

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Your «I love you»‘s are ten a penny
You’re dropping clues like you’ve got any
You got to choose, there’s been so many

[Chorus]
I love you, baby
But face it, she’s Madonna
No man on earth
Could say that he don’t want her

[Refrain]
This look of love
Says I’m leaving
You’re frozen now
I’ve done the freezing
I’m walking out
Madonna’s calling me

[Verse 2]
She’s got to be
Obscene to be believed
That’s her routine
Not what she means to me

[Pre-Chorus 2]
I found myself by circumstance
Across a room where people dance
And quite by chance
She danced right next me

[Chorus]
I love you, baby
But face it, she’s Madonna
No man on earth
Could say that he don’t want her

[Refrain]
It’s me not you
I’ve got to move on
You’re younger too
But she’s got her groove on
I’m sorry, love
Madonna’s calling me

[Bridge]
Oh, Madonna, Madonna
Oh, Madonna, Madonna
Oh, Madonna, Madonna

[Pre-Chorus 3]
(I want to tell you a secret)
We’re having drinks
With Kate and Stella
Gwyneth’s here
She’s brought her fella
But all I wanna do
Is take Madonna home

[Chorus]
I love you, baby
But face it, she’s Madonna
No man on earth
Could say that he don’t want her

[Refrain]
It’s me not you
I’ve got to move on
You’re younger too
But she’s got her groove on
I’m sorry, love
Madonna’s calling me

[Spoken Outro]

[Verse 1]
Mama was queen of the Mambo
Papa was king of the Congo
Deep down in the jungle
I started bangin’ my first bongo
Every monkey’d like to be
In my place instead of me
Cause I’m the king of bongo, baby
I’m the king of bongo bong

[Verse 2]
I went to the big town
Where there is a lot of sound
From the jungle to the city
Looking for a bigger crown
I play my boogie
For the people of big city
But they don’t go crazy
When I’m bangin’ on my boogie

[Chorus]
I’m the «king of the bongo
King of the bongo bong»
Hear me when I come baby
King of the bongo
King of the bongo bong
Hit me when I come

[Verse 3]
Nobody like to be
In my place instead of me
Cause nobody go crazy
When I’m bangin’ on my boogie
I’m the king without a crown
Hanging loose in the big town
But I’m the king of bongo, baby
I’m the king of bongo bong

[Chorus]
King of the bongo
King of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come, baby
King of the bongo
King of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come

[Verse 4]
They say that I’m a clown
Making too much dirty sound
They say there is no place
For little monkey in this town
Nobody like to be
In my place instead of me
Cause nobody go crazy
When I’m bangin’ on my boogie

[Chorus]
I’m the king of the bongo
King of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come, baby
King of the bongo
King of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come

[Verse 5]
Bangin’ on my bongo
All that swing belongs to me
I’m so happy there’s nobody
In my place instead of me
I’m a king without a crown
Hanging loose in a big town
But I’m the king of bongo baby
I’m the king of bongo bong

[Chorus]
I’m the king of the bongo
King of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come, baby
King of the bongo
King of the bongo bong
Hit me when I come

[Verse 1]
Mama was queen of the Mambo
Papa was king of the Congo
Deep down in the jungle
I started bangin’ my first bongo
Every monkey like to be
In my place instead of me
Cause I’m the king of bongo, baby
I’m the king of bongo bong

[Chorus]
King of the bongo
King of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come, baby
King of the bongo
King of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come

Pour ne plus rien avoir
Parfois j’aimerais mourir pour plus jamais te voir

Je ne t’aime plus mon amour
Je ne t’aime plus tous les jours
Je ne t’aime plus mon amour
Je ne t’aime plus tous les jours

Parfois j’aimerais mourir
Tellement y a plus d’espoir
Parfois j’aimerais mourir
Pour plus jamais te revoir
Parfois j’aimerais mourir
Pour ne plus rien savoir

Je ne t’aime plus et je m’appelle Robert

J’habite à Los Angeles et London
Je t’aime, je t’aime les filles
I don’t know what to talk

[Verse 1]
What am I supposed to do
To keep from goin under?
Now you’re making holes in my heart
And yes it’s starting to show
I’ve been holding back
Is it any wonder?
Since you walked right into my life
And interrupted my flow

[Hook]
And I wanna know
Baby when you’re with me
Who do you think you’re fooling?
Making me feel so sure
Turnin your lovelight down again
Why don’t you let me be?
You don’t know what you’re doing
Making me feel so sure
Turning your lovelight down again
(did it again, did it again)

[Verse 2]
Baby i’ve got to know
Are we gonna make it?
Laying down beside me tonight
And do whatever you feel
Baby you’re in control
Where you gonna take it?
Don’t you think that I do you right?
You know darn well that I will

[Hook]
And I wanna know
Baby when you’re with me
Who do you think you’re fooling?
Making me feel so sure
Turnin your lovelight down again
Why don’t you let me be?
You don’t know what you’re doing
Making me feel so sure
Turning your lovelight down again
(do it again, do it again
Do it again, do it again)

[Bridge]
Baby you turn your lovelight down
And I don’t know
Just how long I can stick around
Girl I need more
And it ain’t just physical
I don’t know what I can do
If I found
It ain’t love this time around

[Bridge 2]
Keep turning down your lovelight
Did it again
Keep turning down your lovelight
Did it again
Keep turning down your lovelight
Did it again
Keep turning down your lovelight
Did it again

[Hook]
Baby when you’re with me
Who do you think you’re fooling?
Making me feel so sure
Turnin your lovelight down again
Why don’t you let me be?
You don’t know what you’re doing
Making me feel so sure
Turning your lovelight down again

Baby when you’re with me
Who do you think you’re fooling?
Making me feel so sure
Turnin your lovelight down again
Why don’t you let me be?
You don’t know what you’re doing
Making me feel so sure
Turning your lovelight down again

Baby when you’re with me
Who do you think you’re fooling?
Making me feel so sure
Turnin your lovelight down again
Why don’t you let me be?
You don’t know what you’re doing
Making me feel so sure
Turning your lovelight down again
Baby when you’re with me
Who do you think you’re fooling?
Making me feel so sure
Turnin your lovelight down again
Why don’t you let me be?
You don’t know what you’re doing
Making me feel so sure
Turning your lovelight down again…

[Intro]
I just wanna be, I just wanna be
I just wanna be, I just wanna be

[Verse 1]
I lost all faith in what I know
The future doesn’t need me so
I kick a ball against a wall
And head ’til it don’t hurt no more
Use my cuts and lacerations
Feed myself a new sensation
Woah, woah

[Verse 2]
Take a ride on your high horse
If the horse is blind, use the force
The falcon flies in two straight lines
Red five standing by
It’s not a moon, it’s a space station
It feels good, the good vibration
Woah, woah

[Chorus]
I know that you know
Some lovely people
Send them all an invitation
Party to a segregation, woah, woah
Viva life on Mars I’m calling
Sending my frequency to the galaxy
So you can see people down here

[Verse 3]
They don’t want us to discuss
The picture in the caves of us
A nosebleed and a bag of coal
Then they put you in a hole
We’re knee deep in information
And they can’t stop this conversation
No, woah

[Chorus]
I know that you know
Some lovely people
Send them all an invitation
Party to a segregation, woah, woah
Viva life on Mars I’m calling
Sending my frequency to the galaxy
So you can see we’re all down here

[Bridge]
I just wanna be, I just wanna be
I just wanna be, I just wanna be
I just wanna be, I just wanna be
I just wanna be, I just wanna be

[Verse 4]
Love is natural, love is good
Not everybody does it
But everybody should
With them and us we’ve made a mess
’til they decide which God is best
Free yourself from liberation
From Lake Geneva to the Freeland Station
Woah, woah

[Chorus]
I know that you know
Some lovely people
Send them all an invitation
Party to a segregation, woah, woah
Viva life on Mars I’m calling
Sending my frequency to the galaxy
So you can see people down here

[Outro]
Viva life on Mars I’m calling
Viva life on Mars I’m calling
Viva life on Mars I’m calling
Viva life on Mars I’m calling

Shake your rudebox

Shake your rudebox
Do the rudebox
Shake your rudebox( Rude Box, Rude Box)

[Verse 1]
OK then, back to basics
Grab your shell toes and your fat laces
A little hand clap for some funk faces
And make your body move in the following places
Goes up your back and then down your spine
And when it hits your head…
OK then back to baseheads
Dance like you just won at the special Olympics
I got the rudebox off the back of a spaceship
So sick I just had to take it
The R.U.D.E.B.O.X
Up your jacksie, split your kecks
Sing a song to Semtex
Pocket full of Durex, body full of Mandrex
Are we gonna have sex? Will you wear your knee socks?
Back to the rudebox

[Bridge]
Got this double fantasy
Where we just never stop
I’ve got one design
And that’s to funk you to the top
Know whats on my mind
There’s only one thing you will find
I got one design
And that’s to bump you til you drop

[Hook]
Rudebox, do the rudebox
Cause you so nasty
Rudebox, shake your rudebox
Why you so nasty
Rudebox, do the rudebox
Cause you so nasty
Rudebox, shake your rudebox

Jack those jills, shake your Playtex
Rock 3 stripes, not the asics
A.D.I.D.A.S
Old school cause it’s the best (yes)
T.K. Maxx cost less (yes)
Jackson looks a mess (bless)
OK then, what to do
If you try to jack me I’ll rudebox you
If you rudebox me, I’ll rudebox your whole crew
Cause it’s what I do, ain’t that right boo? (true)
I’ll ride with you if you can get me to the border
Cause the sheriff’s after me for what I did to his daughter
I did it like this (you did it like that)
I love it when you double clap clap

[Bridge]
Got this double fantasy
Where we just never stop
I’ve got one design

Cause you so nasty
Rudebox, shake your rudebox

[Verse 3]
OK then, check the tan line
Make your body shape like you’re stood on a landmine
Call me on my mobile, not the landline
And jack the mainline at the same time
OK, this is what we do
Got a jam so fresh its nice for you
OK, give it what you got
And dial 808 for the bass to drop
OK then, whats the fracas
Grab your cardy your lead hat and your bus pass
You don’t sweat much for a fat lass
Grab your rudebox cause your box is righteous
OK, bum rush the show
I got high speed dubbing on my stereo
And all the tunes in the box are the cherrio
I know I told you before, did you hear me though (did you hear me though)

[Bridge]
Got this double fantasy
Where we just never stop
I’ve got one design
And that’s to funk you to the top
Know whats on my mind

I got one design
And that’s to bump you til you drop

[Verse 1]
Tryin’ to be misunderstood
But it doesn’t do me any good
Love the way they smiled at me
Held their face for eternity
Now let them all fly off

[Pre-Chorus 1]
When it comes down
It all comes down
And you will not be found
When it’s over, it’s all over
Even if I make a sound

[Chorus]
I’ll be misunderstood
By the beautiful and good in this city
None of it was planned
Take me by the hand
Just don’t try and understand

[Verse 2]
Tryin’ to be misunderstood
Just a product of my childhood
And still I find myself outside
You can’t say I haven’t tried
Perhaps I tried too hard
[Pre-Chorus 2]
No excuses, won’t apologise
Or justify your lies
Come find me, tell them to me
Look me in the eyes

[Chorus]
I’ll be misunderstood
By the beautiful and good in this city
None of this was planned
Take me by the hand
Just don’t try and understand

[Outro]
Can’t forgive, sorry to say
You don’t know you’re guilty anyway
Isn’t it funny how we don’t speak
The language of love?

He’s chosen my attic
I feel it in the static
He lives in my basement
And I can hardly face it
My performance is easy
I am the god of romance
And in my confusion
I have the right to reign

He’s stolen my Oscars
He trades on my jokes
He makes all my engines go oh oh oh
He put an «e» in the arsenal
A comb in my ‘fro
Divine retribution
And away we will go
Hey hey hey hey

Something’s happening I can feel it
Moving out of time you’ll hear it
Falling in the way you fear it
Jumping thumping shout out something
Jumping thumping shout out something

Listen to the radio
And you will hear the songs you know
Make it effervescent here
And you might have a job my dear
My dear
I’m searching for something
Beyond my understanding
Looking for meaning
Where nothing is demanding
There are no surprises
Where nothing is expected
If you offer nothing
Then everyone accepts

He’s stolen my Oscars
He trades on my jokes
He makes all my engines go oh oh oh
He put an «e» in the arsenal
A comb in my ‘fro
Divine retribution
And away we will go
Hey hey hey hey

Something’s happening I can feel it
Moving out of time you’ll hear it
Falling in the way you fear it
Jumping thumping shout out something
Jumping thumping shout out something

Listen to the radio
And you will hear the songs you know
Make it effervescent here
And you might have a job my dear
My dear
Ouch
Ouch
Ouch
Radio
Ouch ouch
Ouch
Ouch
Radio
Something’s happening I can feel it
Moving out of time you’ll hear it
Falling in the way you fear it
Jumping thumping shout out something
Something’s happening I can feel it
Moving out of time you’ll hear it
Falling in the way you fear it
Jumping thumping shout out something

Listen to the radio
And you will hear the songs you know
Make it effervescent here
And you might have a job my dear

Listen to the Radio
Listen to the Radio
Listen to the Radio

Visitors engineering
All we need is a clearing
We don’t know what to feed ’em
Or even if we’re really needin’

Highway to the stars tonight
Leave the bad news at home
Highway to the stars tonight
Look out below (Look out below)
Look out below (Look out below)
Look out below

Sirius, can you hear me?
I know you’re there, will you steer me?
51, I’ll be waiting
If you don’t mind I’ll bring my mate in

Highway to the stars tonight
Leave the bad news at home
Highway to the stars tonight
Look out below (Look out below)
Look out below (Look out below)
Look out below

In the Gentlemen’s Club
They’re passing round their radar
It’s such a hollow balloon
Telling people what to do
They’re watching you
Entities all around me
I can’t explain how they found me
We’re occupied but we don’t know it
And there’s no way to expose it

Highway to the stars tonight
Leave the bad news at home
Highway to the stars tonight
Look out below (Look out below)
Look out below (Look out below)
Look out below
Look out below (Look out below)
Look out below (Look out below)
Look out below
Look out below (Look out below)
Look out below (Look out below)

And even going home
Don’t you wanna go
And even going home
Don’t you wanna go
Don’t you wanna go
Don’t you wanna go-o-o-o-o-o

The morning brings a mystery
The evening makes it history
Who am I to rate the morning sun?

[Verse 1]
In this bag of stuff I brought to you
You didn’t mind sorting it through
You would never be the trouble and strife
If I made you my Swiss army wife

[Pre-Chorus 1]
I could give this up, I could walk away
It doesn’t fill me up, it didn’t anyway

[Chorus]
I won’t do that to you
Won’t do that to you
Do that to you, won’t do that to you

[Verse 2]
I don’t mind when the boys look at you
If I was them I’d be doing it too
I mean more to you than handbags and shoes
I’m so sorry there’s been a few

[Pre-Chorus 2]
I don’t trust too much, I don’t love enough
But I’m giving up, all this giving up

[Chorus]
I won’t do that to you
Won’t do that to you
Do that to you, won’t do that to you
[Verse 3]
Suddenly I’m not the jealous guy
Another sign that we’re doing it right

[Pre-Chorus 3]
I could give this up, I could walk away
Cause you fill me up, each and every day

[Chorus]
I promise that I won’t do that to you
Won’t do that to you
Do that to you, won’t do that to you
Won’t do that to you
Won’t do that to you
Do that to you, won’t do that to you
I won’t do that to you
Won’t do that to you
Do that to you, won’t do that to you

Sleep, sleep, feel the deep
Get away from the death of it all
Don’t you want to see
What you could have won
Bittersweet, your defeat, baby
I’m much sicker than you
All you are is colours
And your colours run

Isn’t it genius that you can’t deny
You just keep on doing harm
Could only see the sense in being superblind
And just keep on keeping on

I can’t help thinking ’bout me
Put a thought in for me
I’m the genius behind me
Maybe I shouldn’t have said it
And here in the next century
What will they think when they think about me

Here it is, what a lie, say a prayer
For the way it should be
We are people they don’t believe
Wish your mother wouldn’t bother
Won’t she just stay out of your mind?
Or should they stay when you make them leave
Isn’t it genius that you can’t deny
You just keep on doing harm
Could only see the sense in being superblind
And just keep on keeping on

I can’t help thinking ’bout me
Put a thought in for me
I’m the genius behind me
Maybe I shouldn’t have said it
Here’s to the next century
What will they think when they think about me

I can’t help thinking ’bout me
Won’t you put a prayer in for me
You could talk and think about me

It’s like these rocks know when we’re dancing
We can pray our way out of this
You’re like a new wave old romantic
Try to break our heart but get stuck on it
Superblind

When your superblind
Keep you out of mind
Cause we all know and we don’t care

[Verse 1]
We’re the futurists in the bistro
Where the music is for weirdos
We like it different, we like it strange
In our own way, we haven’t changed
I got my eyes made up at the bus stop
By my girlfriend, and you know what
She likes me different, she likes me strange
In her own way, she’s just the same

[Chorus]
Psycho evolution
Your pollution makes it difficult for weirdos
Just another humanoid reaction to the voices in this town

[Verse 2]
Every Saturday at the plaza
Guess the gender, unless you’d rather
He is a lesbian, but that’s okay
She is the center of attention for another day
In the universe, we are magenta
You can join us if you enter
Because you’re different and you are strange
In your own way you’re just the same

[Chorus]
Psycho evolution
Your pollution makes it difficult for weirdos
Just another humanoid reaction to the voices in this town

[Bridge]
Time isn’t lost where devotion is
I never wasted a life
Space is the place where the social is
Far from the safe and the norm

[Verse 3]
In the off-stream they call it cabaret
But they’ll say that, won’t they?
I want it different, I like it strange
In my own way I haven’t changed
It’s insulting to be mislead
By the hairdo of the godhead
They show irreverence, but that’s OK
We are the center of the universe anyway

[Chorus]
Psycho evolution
Your pollution makes it difficult for weirdos
Just another humanoid reaction to the voices in this town
Psycho evolution
Your pollution makes it difficult for weirdos
Just another humanoid reaction to the voices in this town

[Verse 1]
You laugh at us, we’re different
And we laugh cause you’re all the same
By the look on your face, baby
We’ve been enjoying ourselves again

[Pre-Chorus 1]
I know that you cry
I know why you try so hard

[Chorus]
Ready, steady, go
Everybody famous
Everyone you know
Why’d it take you ages?
I don’t have to listen, read, love like you
I’ve got no problem with the physical, minimal real life
Living in hysterica for everybody’s betterment
Isn’t it a miracle, everybody’s starstruck

[Verse 2]
I guess the odds are very good
But the goods are very odd
And even though I talk with the devil
I only made the deal with god
[Pre-Chorus 2]
I am a long list
Knock one off the wrist
So hard

[Chorus]
Ready, steady, go
Everybody famous
Everyone you know
Why’d it take you ages?
I don’t have to listen, read, love like you
I’ve got no problem with the physical, minimal real life
Living in hysterica for everybody’s betterment
Isn’t it a miracle, everybody’s starstruck

[Bridge]
You want to stop
But you can’t, can you?
I was lovely
On the way up
On the way up

[Chorus]
Ready, steady, go
Everybody famous
Everyone you know
Why’d it take you ages?
I don’t have to listen, read, love like you
I’ve got no problem with the physical, minimal real life
Living in hysterica for everybody’s betterment
Isn’t it a miracle, everybody’s starstruck
Ready, steady, go

I don’t have to listen, read, love like you
I’ve got no problem with the physical, minimal real life
Living in hysterica for everybody’s betterment
Isn’t it a miracle, everybody’s starstruck

Everybody’s starstruck
Ready, steady, go

Microwave yourself today
Save you for a rainy day
Hello deceptacon
This will not be going away

From all of us there
To all over here
We wish you all of the best
All of the year
She said, «Well he’s never been quite right»
And I know, we’ll be stepping on eggshells tonight

And all over Britain
We wait for permission
To form another queue
We stand in position
Though someody’s missing
And that somebody’s you
But what can I do?

«I love you but I don’t like you right now»
Was all she had to say
Hello deceptacon
I will not be going away

From all of us here
To all over there
We wish you all of the best
All of the year
She said, «Only you could make it right»
But I’ve stopped, stepping on eggshells tonight
And all over Britain
We wait for permission
To form another queue
We stand in position
Though someody’s missing
And that somebody’s you
But what can I do?

Send my best to all concerned
I know I’ve been a gracious host
Goodbye deceptacon

Who are you? (x3)
What are you, to me?
What can I do for you?
What can you do for me?
Who are you? (x3)
What are you, to me?

Somewhere there’s a place where you can go
Someplace you can lay your heavy head down
Everybody needs somewhere to go
We don’t get high to get a comedown

You take your chance in life
Go out and find a wife
Don’t get stuck in the state I’m in
Someone somewhere is loving you

Stand by me
I’ve been stood by you for ages
Stay calm and carry on
Maybe nothing’s wrong

Is it the comfort of
Dis-information or
Is it the freedom that you fear
Said I’m the angel of liberation, love
For a second I believe her

I’m all you’ll hear, ahhhh
While you’re here, ahhhhh

Don’t call it a comeback
Look what I invented here
I thought it was easy
They came and took it away from us
The last days of disco

All raved out
Bitter is the pill of devotion
Read between the noise
All you disco boys (All you disco boys)

The fascination of
A boy and girl in love
For a second I could see her
In the mirrorball
The human animal
I’m the creature that I fear
I’m all you’ll hear, ahhhh
While you’re here, ahhhhh

Don’t call it a comeback
Look what I invented here
I thought it was easy
They came and took it away from us
The last days of disco
The last days of disco
The last days of disco

I’m all you’ll hear, ahhhh
While you’re here, ahhhhh

Don’t call it a comeback
We’ll hold an event in here
This space is beautiful
I’ll decide when it is over

So don’t call it a comeback
Look what I invented here
I thought it was easy
They came and took it away from us
The last days of disco
The last days of disco
The last days of disco

[Verse 1]
This is a song full of metaphors
All I be needing is tobacco and draw
Better let me into your country, though
Then I can show you what you’re missing me for
I’m a night kind of animal
Got a receiver, what you testing me for
I was scared so I ate ’em all
They tasted good but they make me look old

[Pre-Chorus 1]
And ooh, you teach like a toothache
I’m not here for my sake
How long will this mickey take
And ooh there’s heavy entertainment
Out here on the pavement
The men about you gotta get away

[Chorus]
Do, ooh ooh, ooh, ooh ya mind
If I, I, I, I, I, I touch ya?
Do, ooh ooh, ooh, ooh ya mind
If I, I, I, I, I, I touch ya?

[Verse 2]
I’ll think you’re famous If that’s what ya want
But you can pick your own pulpit
You must fill your own fonts
Bring some wine and some sensodyne
Then you can be my favorite dodo
Anyone fancy Monaco
I’m a placebo, they’re chasing me fool
Don’t be scared, you could eat ’em all
They taste good but they make you look old

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Ooh, you sick little cupcake
You could be a keepsake
You jukebox to generate
And ooh I’m heavy entertainment
In need of containment
I’m mad about you
Gotta get away

[Chorus]
Do, ooh ooh, ooh, ooh ya mind
If I, I, I, I, I, I touch ya?
Do, ooh ooh, ooh, ooh ya mind
If I, I, I, I, I, I touch ya?

Anyone fancy Monaco?

[Bridge]
Go get a portable recliner brain
Must take a photo for sure
Got our problems and a real long name
And she gets high on rollin’ roll-ups

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Ooh, you teach like a toothache
I’m not here for my sake
How long will this mickey take
And ooh, there’s heavy entertainment
Out here on the pavement
The men about you gotta get away

[Chorus]
Do, ooh ooh, ooh, ooh ya mind
If I, I, I, I, I, I touch ya?
Do, ooh ooh, ooh, ooh ya mind
If I, I, I, I, I, I touch ya?
Do, ooh ooh, ooh, ooh ya mind
If I, I, I, I, I, I touch ya?
Do, ooh ooh, ooh, ooh ya mind
If I, I, I, I, I, I touch ya?

Anyone fancy Monaco?

The Egyptians built their pyramids
The Romans did what they did
Now everything’s come down to this
It’s just you and I, our kid

We could send a million to the Moon
But why can’t I get on with you?
With cellophane around my mouth
Stops the anger seeping out

Our deaf and dumb dinners
Gravy in the mud
No singles just fillers
Sometimes I wish I could, but…

I can’t behave
I know it’s not the heathen in me
It’s just that I’ve been bleeding lately
Internally, don’t turn to me
Bite your tongue, the torrid weapon
You could learn a useful lesson
What’s so great about the great depression?
Was it a blast for you?
‘Cause it’s blasphemy

Words cut like a knife through Vaseline
You can’t really mean what you mean
When you say what you say
Tourettes make them come out that way
«Wish I was here», well I wish you weren’t
Your gift of anger’s better burnt
If nothing’s said and nothing’s learnt
I thought I wasn’t but I’m really hurting

Our deaf and dumb dinners
There’s gravy in the mud and…

I can’t behave
No, it’s not the heathen in me
It’s just that I’ve been bleeding lately
Internally, don’t turn to me
And I’ll bide my tongue, the torrid weapon
I could learn a useful lesson
What’s so great about the great depression?
Was it a blast for you?
Blasphemy

Our great adventure
Christmas in the snow
Senile dementia maybe
What a way to go

I can’t behave
I know it’s not the heathen in me
It’s just that I’ve been bleeding lately
Internally, so turn to me
But bite your tongue, your torrid weapon
We could learn a useful lesson
Ain’t it great this great depression?
It’s not a blast for me
It’s blasphemy

[Verse 1]
If a man could be his own fantasy
Then to only breed in captivity is pointless
I’ve been doing what I like
When I like, how I like, it’s joyless

[Refrain]
Only you know me

[Verse 2]
What a waste of war this peace
Baby steps and two more sleeps
Till I get to say sorry
I get hysterical historicals of love
It’s just chemicals
Give us something to stop me

[Refrain]
Only you know me

[Chorus]
Since you went away
My heart breaks everyday
You don’t know ’cause you’re not there
You simply found the words to make
All modern feelings fade away
Only you know me

[Verse 3]
I’m doin’ fine
And the sun often shines
What are you thinking?
I done bruised up my mind
With this thunderbird wine
Baby, I’m drinking

[Refrain]
Only you know me

[Chorus]
Since you went away
My heart breaks everyday
You don’t know cause you’re not there
You simply found the words to make
All modern feelings fade away
Only you know me
Only you know me

Since you went away
My heart breaks everyday
You don’t know cause you’re not there
You simply found the words to make
All modern feelings fade away
Only you know me
Only you know me
Only you, only you
Only you know me
Waiting for you all my life
Waiting for you all my life
Waiting for you

[Verse 1]
God gave me the sunshine
Then showed me my lifeline
I was told it was all mine
Then I got laid on the ley line
What a day, what a day
And your Jesus really died for me
Then Jesus really tried for me

[Verse 2]
UK and entropy
I feel like it’s fucking me
Wanna feed off the energy
Love living like a deity
What a day, one day
And your Jesus really died for me
I guess Jesus really tried for me

[Chorus]
Bodies in the bodhi tree
Bodies making chemistry
Bodies on my family
Bodies in the way of me
Bodies in the cemetery
And that’s the way it’s gonna be

[Post-Chorus]
All we’ve ever wanted is to look good naked
Hope that someone can take it
God save me rejection from my reflection
I want perfection

[Verse 3]
Praying for the rapture
‘Cause it’s stranger getting stranger
And everything’s contagious
It’s the modern middle ages
All day every day
And if Jesus really died for me
Then Jesus really tried for me

[Chorus]
Bodies in the bodhi tree
Bodies making chemistry
Bodies on my family
Bodies in the way of me
Bodies in the cemetery
And that’s the way it’s gonna be

[Post-Chorus]
All we’ve ever wanted is to look good naked
Hope that someone can take it
God save me rejection from my reflection
I want perfection

[Chorus]
Bodies in the bodhi tree
Bodies making chemistry
Bodies on my family
Bodies in the way of me
Bodies in the cemetery
Bodies in the bodhi tree
Bodies making chemistry
Bodies on my family
Bodies in the way of me
Bodies in the cemetery
And that’s the way it’s gonna be

[Post-Chorus]
All we’ve ever wanted is to look good naked
Hope that someone can take it
God save me rejection from my reflection
I want perfection

[Outro]
Jesus didn’t die for you
What do you want? (I want perfection)
Jesus didn’t die for you
What are you on? (I need some…)
Jesus didn’t die for you
Jesus didn’t die for you
Jesus didn’t die for you

[Verse 1]
How do you rate the morning sun?
After a long and sleepless night
How many stars would you give to the moon?
Do you see those stars from where you are?
Shine on the lost and loneliest
The ones who can’t get over it

[Chorus 1]
And you always wanted more than life
But now you don’t have the appetite
In a message to the troubadour
The world don’t love you anymore
Tell me how do you rate the morning sun

[Verse 2]
Stuck inside the rainbow years
And you could happen to me
‘Cause I’ve been close to where you are
I drove to places you have seen
It all seems so familiar
Like they’d been sent to kill ya

[Chorus 2]
It doesn’t take an astronaut
To float into space is just a thought
The morning brings a mystery
The evening makes it history
Tell me how do you rate the morning sun

[Bridge]
And the village drunk
Sadly passed away
It was a shame
I never knew his name
I wonder if he sat there every morning
And watched the sun rise

[Verse 3]
How do you rate the morning sun?
It was just too heavy for me
And all I wanted was the world
If you are the starlet in the sun
Don’t go wasting your time
‘Cause there is no finish line

[Chorus 3]
And you don’t see anything
Not even love, not anything
The night could take the man from you
A sense of wonder overdue
The morning brings a mystery
The evening makes it history
Who am I to rate the morning sun?

[Verse 1]
I hope there’s a golden age
I pray for my sanity
Where we don’t have to answer to anyone ’bout anything
This is not like the brochure
Flying cars and sex machines
We’re all so compliant cause everything is what it seems

[Pre-Chorus 1]
And they can’t build a satellite
To tell you how loved you are
Or some kind of life device
That holds you in, you’ve gone too far

[Chorus]
And I don’t feel myself again
I thought I’d be fixed by now
Walking through the horizon
I find myself back here somehow
Give me something to die for
Or design a quiet mind
Something to like mankind for
Cause we don’t lie, my heart and I

[Verse 2]
You’ve been bending so long now
You think it’s standing up
And they line up behind you
To build you up, buttercup
We can lose all meaning
Quicker than a credit card
And not everyone’s healing
So try your best and don’t look too hard

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Cause they can’t build a satellite
To tell you what’s in your heart
Or some kind of life device
That holds you in, you’ve gone too far

[Chorus]
And I don’t feel myself again
I thought I’d be fixed by now
Walking through the horizon
I find myself back here somehow
Give me something to die for
Or design a quiet mind
Something to like mankind for
Cause we don’t lie, my heart and I

[Bridge]
Will I ever feel that waking
Make it as a lullaby
Don’t ask me to explain again
I can’t lie to my heart and I

[Chorus]
And I don’t feel myself again
I thought I’d be fixed by now
Walking through the horizon
I find myself back here somehow
Give me something to die
Or design a quiet mind
Something to like mankind for
Cause we don’t lie, my heart and I
My heart and I
My heart and I

[Outro]
I’ve been feeling so lonely
Feeling so low
So low I almost let go

[Verse 1]
Well there’s three versions of this story
Mine, and yours, and then the truth
Now we can put it down to circumstance
Our childhood, then our youth

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Out of some sentimental gain
I wanted you to feel my pain
But it came back return to sender
I read your mind and tried to call
My tears could fill the Albert Hall
Is this the sound of sweet surrender?

[Chorus]
What a shame we never listened
I told you through the television
And all that went away was the price we paid
People spend a lifetime this way
Oh what a shame

[Verse 2]
So I got busy throwing everybody
Underneath the bus
And with your poster 30 foot high
At the back of Toys-R-Us

[Pre-Chorus 2]
I wrote a letter in my mind
But the words were so unkind
About a man I can’t remember
I don’t recall the reasons why
I must have meant them at the time
Is this the sound of sweet surrender?

[Chorus]
What a shame we never listened
I told you through the television
And all that went away was the price we paid
People spend a lifetime this way
And that’s how they stay
Oh what a shame

[Bridge]
Words come easy when they’re true
Words come easy when they’re true

[Verse 3]
So I got busy throwing everybody underneath the bus
And with your poster 30 foot high at the back of Toys-R-Us
Now we can put it down to circumstance, our childhood then our youth

[Chorus]
What a shame we never listened
I told you through the television
And all that went away was the price we paid
People spend a lifetime this way
And that’s how they stay
People spend a lifetime this way
Oh what a shame
What a shame
Such a shame, what a shame

[Spoken Outro]

We became the parade on the streets that we once cleaned
Expendable soldiers smiling at anything
Raised on a feeling our lives will have meaning eventually

We were once the answer and then you discover
You’re actually just one thing after another and
What was the question and why was the lesson so deafening

This is all that matters now
And that was all that happened anyhow
You can look back but don’t stare
Maybe I can love you out of there
And when I went away what I forgot to say was
All I have to say
Eight letters three words one meaning

And outside forces didn’t make it easy so I thought I’d go before you leave me
Self preservation was no explanation for anything
Oh but the truth is more than we’ll ever comprehend I’ve just started to understand my friend all of that distance cause I fell in love with the enemy

This is all that matters now
And that was all that happened anyhow
You can look back but don’t stare
Maybe I can love you out of there
And when I went away what I forgot to say was all I had to say
Eight letters three words one meaning
Eight letters three words one meaning
At last we meet on no man’s land just footprints in the sand
We meet on no man’s land at last
And when I went away what I forgot to say was all I had to say
Eight letters three words one meaning
Eight letters three words one meaning
One meaning, just one meaning, one meaning

We’re in land on fire
In the middle of the sea
When you close your eyes
Tell me what you hear
Tell me what you feel
When you cross that heart
And you hope to die
You might get your chance
It could be tonight, could be tonight

Oooooo
Can you feel it coming
Oooooo
Can you feel the calling

So put your hand in my hand
Watch them burning down this island
To see your brown eyes there
Lit by the riots that they’re running from

It’s just a bad day
Not a bad life
I’ve seen your eyes
You were bona fide
Born to fight
There’ll be someone here
When they come for me
They need to cross that place
Where a heart should be
Where a heart should be
Oooooo
Can you feel the calling
Oooooo
Can you feel the calling

May this moment of surrender
Live in your heart forever
The earth will move and shake
But they can never keep us apart
Born to the life they gave us
Of bitterness and failures
Though I may lose myself
They can never keep us apart
We’re in a land on fire
In the middle of the sea
When I close my eyes
Only you, only me

Oooooo
This is our finest hour
Underneath the seats of power
The earth will break the chains
You know they’ll never
Keep us apart
So put your hand in my hand
God knows, we own this island
The truth will move and shake
But they can never keep us apart

There will always be
Someone better than you
Even if you’re the best
So let’s stop the
Competition now
Or we will both be losers
I’m ashamed I ever tried to be
Higher than the rest
But brother I am not alone
We’ve all tried to be
On top of the world somehow
Cos we have all been losers

I don’t wanna be laid down
No I don’t wanna die knowing
That I spent so much time
When I was young
Just trying to be a winner
So I wanna make it clear now
I wanna make it known
That I don’t care about any of
That shit no more

Don’t care bout being a winner
Or being smooth with women
Or going out on Fridays
Being the life of parties
No, no more
No
There will always be
Someone worse than you
Sister, don’t let it
Get to your head
Because you won’t be on
Top of the world so long
In constant competition
This ain’t about no one
In particular
But I could list a few
I’m removing myself
From the queue

Don’t care bout being a winner
Or being smooth with women
Or going out on Fridays
Being the life of parties
Don’t care bout being harder
Or being Daddy’s favourite
Or if you think I’m a mimic
Or if I am a loser
Don’t care bout being a winner
Or being smooth with women
Or going out on Fridays
Being the life of parties
Don’t care bout being harder
Or being Daddy’s favourite
Or if you think I’m a mimic
Or if I am a loser
No, no more
No more
(Repeat)

[Verse 1]
You do something that reminds me
The days of rage are now behind me
I have to live outside the law
‘Cause I’m a naughty boy with a dirty habit
Trying to use some teenage magic
Picking pennies off the floor

[Pre-Chorus]
When she comes
She comes for hours
Stun
She don’t fake for no one
She don’t fake for no one
And if love
Gets in the way of you
Let’s do what we’re supposed to do
And all lay low

[Chorus]
Oh, baby, please
Beggin you, darling, please
Under the covers
You and me are not like the others
You and me are not like the others
Please
Beggin you, darling, please
God loves a lover
You and me are not like the others
You and me are not like the others

[Verse 2]
You do something that reminds me
I’ve no resistance, follow blindly
Baby, that’s what I came here for
‘Cause you pull me out of my sedation
Practice high street meditation
And other sexual metaphors

[Pre-Chorus]
So when you come
You come for hours
Stun
I don’t fake for no one
She don’t fake for no one
And if love gets in
The way of you
Let’s do how we supposed to do
And fall in love

[Chorus]
Oh, baby, please
Beggin you, darling, please
Under the covers
You and me are not like the others
You and me are not like the others
Please
Begging you, darling, please
God loves a lover
You and me are not like the others
You and me are not like the others

[Bridge]
We are not like the others
Under, under the covers
God loves, God loves a lover
We are not like the others
We are not like the others
Under, under the covers
God loves, God loves a lover
We are not like the others

[Chorus]
Please
Begging you, darling, please
Under the covers
You and me are not like the others
You and me are not like the others
Please
Begging you, darling, please
God loves a lover
You and me are not like the others
You and me are not like the others

[Verse 1]

Everybody knows that we only got tonight, see
I never get a taste ‘less you give it a bite
Trickle, trickle, trickle sweet, juices of life
Trickle from the speakers at the speed of light

[Chorus]
Hey wow, wow
Yeah, yeah, wow, wow
Hey wow, wow, yeah, yeah
Clap your hands now

Clap your hands now

[Verse 1]
When karma reaches you
I want to be there
Just in case it needs help
You made me be so cruel to myself
The love of power or the power of love
You need help
When karma reaches you
I want to be there to catch that fall
Get down beside you and watch you crawl
How does it feel to be alone
Down there

[Pre-Chorus]
When you fall apart again
It won’t break my heart

[Verse 2]
If I told you my secrets
You’d never look at me the same way
Well, I guess you’re right
Some things I can’t change
When karma reaches you
I want to be there
Just in case it needs help

[Pre-Chorus]
I won’t fall apart again
I don’t test my heart

[Chorus]
Is there any wonder
With this sadness inside us
Was it sent for the hunger
Was it meant to divide us

[Post-Chorus]
Into the silence
Into the silence
Into the silence
Into the silence

[Verse 3]
When karma reaches you
I want to be there to catch that fall
Get down beside you and watch you crawl
How does it feel to be alone
Down there

[Pre-Chorus]
Don’t fall apart again
Don’t test my heart

[Chorus]
Is there any wonder
With the sadness inside us
Was it sent for the hunger
Was it meant to divide us

[Outro]
Into the silence
Into the silence
Into the silence
Into the silence

[Verse 1]
I walk around these empty streets
They say there’s nothing left of me
I say there’s no one here for you
Down in the land
The land of the blind
The one eyed king
He stole my mind
And I let him

[Pre-Chorus]
Everything I like’s
Illegal, seductive
Addictive, immoral
Corrosive, destructive
But I’ve got kind words in my heart
It’s a passion
Your fashions in fashion

[Chorus]
Tonight I’m hunting for you
(Oooohooooo)
Tonight I’m hunting for you
(Oooohooooo)
Tonight I’m hunting for

[Verse 2]
The stone is set, the dye is cast
I am the wreckage of my past
And I am not afraid to ask
I sail away my sanity
Just to find some company
Now darlin’

[Pre-Chorus]
Everything I like’s
Illegal, seductive
Addictive, immoral
Corrosive, destructive
Your addiction to danger
Makes me no stranger
It’s fashion, oh fashion

[Chorus]
(Oooohooooo)
Tonight I’m hunting for you
(Oooohooooo)
Tonight I’m hunting for you
(Oooohooooo)
Tonight I’m hunting for you
(Oooohooooo)
Tonight I’m hunting for

[Bridge]
I’ll be good
But I won’t be cheap
There is no limit here for me
And I’ll take everything I need
I mean everything, everything

You can waste away in fashion
When you chase the daylight home
You could waste away in fashion
When you chase the daylight home

[Chorus]
Tonight I’m hunting for you
(Oooohooooo)
Tonight I’m hunting for you
(Oooohooooo)
Tonight I’m hunting for you
(Oooohooooo)
Tonight I’m hunting for you
(Oooohooooo)
Tonight I’m hunting for
(Oooohooooo)
(You could waste
Away in fashion)
Tonight I’m hunting for you
(Oooohooooo)
Tonight I’m hunting for you
(Oooohooooo)
(When you chase
The daylight home)
Tonight I’m hunting for you
(Oooohooooo)
Tonight I’m hunting for you

[Verse 1]
Maybe you know
You should, ’cause it shows
Got me looking at your lips
See through your clothes
I hold you goodbye just a little too long
We don’t act like it’s wrong
Say where you’ve been
You look to the side
Not in the eyes
No, not in his eyes anymore
His eyes

[Pre-Chorus]
I know the secret skinned you alive
But the heart has chosen

[Chorus]
All that I want
Is to pick you up from out of that dress
Carry you to that desk
And feel the sin of your flesh
It’s all that I want

[Verse 2]
Arching your back
With that look on your face
All that I need
Is an hour and space
When did it change
I guess when we started
Sweeping under carpets
I talk you to sleep
And no one will know
He hasn’t a heart so he can’t
Change your soul anymore
Your soul

[Pre-Chorus]
I know the secret skins you alive
But the heart has chosen

[Chorus]
All that I want
Is to pick you up and out of that dress
Carry you to that desk
And feel the scent off your flesh
Now I confess
Do you think of me less
Get it off your chest
But if you wear that dress
You do what you want

[Bridge]
And I wanna tear your clothes off, baby
But you’d be homeless in your heart

[Chorus]
All that I want
Is to pick you up from out of that dress
Carry you to that bed
And feel the sin of your flesh
Now I confess
Do you think of me less
Get it off your chest
But if you wear that dress
You do what you want

[Verse 1]
Twisted little hurricane
I am a believer
If I take you home again
I will never leave you

[Pre-Chorus]
Cause this ain’t my first rodeo
We can make a video
Pumping on your stereo
To the shit that’s on the radio

[Chorus]
To the shit that’s on the radio
To the shit that’s on the radio
Shit that’s on the radio
To the shit that’s on the radio
Shit that’s on the radio

[Verse 2]
She was so saintly
Sexy little mover
And I’ve been up all night
So I don’t wanna lose her

[Pre-Chorus]
Cause this ain’t my first rodeo
We can make a video
Pumping on your stereo
To the shit that’s on the radio

[Chorus]
To the shit that’s on the radio
To the shit that’s on the radio
Shit that’s on the radio
To the shit that’s on the radio
Shit that’s on the radio

[Bridge]
Searching for the girl
Searching for the girl
That made a pretty headline
She was such a pretty girl
Such a pretty girl
That made a pretty headline

[Verse 3]
I know that you know
When we get together
Love you like a hurricane
I know that you know
When we get together
Love you like a hurricane

[Chorus]
To the shit that’s on the radio
Shit that’s on the radio
To the shit that’s on the radio
Shit that’s on the radio

[Verse 3]
I know that you know
(shit that’s on the radio)
When we get together
(shit that’s on the radio)
Love you like a hurricane
(shit that’s on the radio)
I know that you know
(shit that’s on the radio)
When we get together
(shit that’s on the radio)
Love you like a hurricane

[Verse 1]
When I look you in the lie
Something deep inside me dies
’cause I know you won’t get better, better, better
You’d rather be right than be loved
The only thing I understood
Nothing’s ever good enough

[Pre-Chorus 1]
I stumble through the words as they’re leaving me
Tremble at the side of Your Majesty
And I cut myself just to get them out

[Chorus]
This time I’ll be different, I promise you
This time I’ll be special, you know I will
Just don’t leave with me in your eyes
This time I’ll be better, I want you to know
This time I’ll be special, oh God, make it so
Just don’t leave with me
In your eyes, your eyes, your eyes

[Verse 2]
You took my youth, you took my health
And if you’re not here I find myself
You’re supposed to make this better, better, better
No self-control and no reason why
If I don’t change, then we both die
This is it for you and I

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Blisters at the end of my fingertips
Praying to a god I don’t think exist
Will you listen now?
Can you forgive me somehow?

[Chorus]
This time I’ll be different, I promise you
This time I’ll be special, you know I will
Just don’t leave with me in your eyes
This time I’ll be better, I want you to know
This time I’ll be special, oh God, make it so
Just don’t leave with me
In your eyes, your eyes, your eyes

[Bridge]
Closer now to the end
If love was the answer
Then hope was the question
Closer now, let’s pretend
We’ve never been out here before

[Chorus]
This time I’ll be different, I promise you
This time I’ll be special, you know I will
Just don’t leave with me in your eyes
This time I’ll be better, I want you to know
This time I’ll be special, oh God, make it so
Just don’t leave with me
In your eyes, your eyes, your eyes

[Verse 1]
I was there to witness
Candice’s inner business
She wants the boys to notice
Her rainbows and her ponies
She was educated
But could not count to ten
Now she got lots of different horses
By lots of different men

[Pre-Chorus 1]
And I say liberate your sons and daughters
The bush is high but in the hole there’s water
You can get some when they give it
Nothing sacred, but it’s a living

[Chorus]
Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too high or a little too low
Got no self-esteem and vertigo
Cause she thinks she’s made of candy
Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too loud or a little too close
Got a hurricane at back of her throat
She thinks she’s made of candy

[Verse 2]
Ring a ring of roses
Whoever gets the closest
She comes and she goes
As the war of the roses
Mother was a victim
Father beat the system
By moving bricks to Brixton
And learning how to fix them

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Liberate your sons and daughters
The bush is high but in the hole there’s water
As you will, she’ll be the whole of the law
And if it don’t feel good
What are you doing it for
Now tell me

[Chorus]
Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too high or a little too low
Got no self-esteem and vertigo
Cause she thinks she’s made of candy
Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too loud or a little too close
There’s a hurricane in the back of her throat
And she thinks she’s made of candy

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Liberate your sons and daughters
The bush is high but in the hole there’s water
As you will, she’ll be the whole of the law
And if you don’t feel good
What are you doing it for
What are you doing it for
What are you doing it for

[Chorus]
Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too high or a little too low
Got no self-esteem and vertigo
Cause she thinks she’s made of candy
Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too loud or a little too close
Got a hurricane at the back of her throat
And she thinks she’s made of candy

Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too high or a little too low
Got no self-esteem and vertigo
Cause she thinks she’s made of candy
Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too loud or a little too close
Got a hurricane at the back of her throat
And she thinks she’s made of candy

[Verse 1]
I used to think about it
When I was a little one all alone
Used to be so excited, so excited
On my own
I used to think about it
When I was a little one all alone
Used to be so excited, so excited
In my home

[Pre-Chorus]
You wouldn’t believe it even if I told ya
This little girl had too much exposure
Big bad world, eyes black like a raven
I knew right then my soul needed saving

[Chorus 1]
You were way out of my league back then
Go anyway, be a man
I am 16 and I love you
And I’m standing on your step
I took a photograph in my mind
But I don’t know where it’s kept
I’m embarrassing and limited
With thoughts I have repressed
But I’m 16 and I love you
And I haven’t lost it yet

[Verse 2]
I used to be about it
When I was a little one all alone
Used to be so excited, so excited
In my home
I used to think about it
When I was a little one all alone
Used to be all about it, all about it
On my own

[Pre-Chorus]
You wouldn’t believe it even if I told ya
This little girl had too much exposure
Big bad world, eyes black like a raven
I knew right then my soul needed saving
(This is the end)

[Chorus 1]
You were way out of my league back then
Go anyway, be a man
I am 16 and I love you
And I’m standing on your step
I took a photograph in my mind
But I don’t know where it’s kept
I’m embarrassing and limited
With thoughts I have repressed
But I’m 16 and I love you
And I haven’t lost it yet

[Bridge]
Let me be your gospel
Baby we’ve got history
Let me be your gospel
Baby we’ve got history
This is the end
(Let me be your gospel)
My faithful friend
(Baby we’ve got history)
The bitter end
(Let me be your gospel)
Coming home again
(Baby we’ve got history)
This is the end

[Chorus 2]
Drink to you
You always wished me well
And those that don’t
Go fuck yourself
Drink to you
You always wished me well
And those that don’t
Go fuck yourself
This is the end

[Verse 1]
When you’re young you hope to be
Menacing, in vanity
Six feet tall, maybe more
Bigger now than before

[Pre-Chorus]
They said it was leaving me
The magic was leaving me
I don’t think so
I don’t think so

[Chorus 1]
They said it was leaving
They said it with joy
Now I can make this last forever
And be a boy
And be a boy

[Verse 2]
When you’re young you hope to see
Them carve your name into the street
And bounce your words off satellites
That keep the wasted up tonight

[Pre-Chorus]
They said it was leaving me
The magic was leaving me
I don’t think so
I don’t think so

[Chorus 2]
They said it was leaving
They said it with joy
Now I can make this last forever
And be a boy
And be a boy

There’s safety in a jungle
If you treat it like a toy
Make sure you talk to strangers
And be a boy
And be a boy
And be a boy

[Pre-Chorus]
They said it was leaving me
The magic was leaving me
I don’t think so
I don’t think so

[Outro]
All the boys that could have been someone
The time did come but now it’s gone
The time did come but now it’s gone
It takes a big man to be someone
All the boys that could have been someone
The time did come but now it’s gone
The time did come but now it’s gone
It takes a big man to be someone

I’m half your age and lived twice your life
And I own the streets you walk tonight
The time did come but it’s long gone
It takes a big man to be someone

I’m half your age and lived twice your life
And I don’t sleep alone at night
The time did come but it’s long gone
It takes a big man to be someone

[Verse 1]
Just like the night before Pompeii blows
Nobody really knows where my Rose Marie goes
My friends all think I’m mad
And she makes my dad sad
And he married my mother so

[Chorus]
I’ll be imagining wedding bells
Fairy tales, carousels
I’m just imagining open doors
Overtures for son-in-laws
And if you want this dream to start
Then just open up your broken heart
Start imagining wedding bells
Fairy tales and me

[Verse 2]
She went out Friday
Came in Monday night
She must have left the keys in
Somebody else’s car
And oh no one completes me more than she
And until she gets home I’ll be

[Chorus]
I’ll be imagining wedding bells
Fairy tales, carousels
I’ll be imagining open doors
Overtures for son-in-laws
And if you want this dream to start
Then just open up your broken heart
Start imagining wedding bells
Fairy tales and me

[Bridge]
Oh the comfort of being with the one you desire for life
Oh the comfort of knowing one day she will be my bride
And oh no one completes me, more than she
And now ’til she gets home I’ll be

[Chorus]
I’ll be imagining wedding bells
Fairy tales, carousels
I’ll be imagining open doors
Overtures for son-in-laws
And if you want this dream to start
Then just open up your broken heart
Start imagining wedding bells
Fairy tales and me
Wedding bells, fairy tales and me
Wedding bells, fairy tales, me

[Verse 1]
Some people say a man is made outta mud
A poor man’s made outta muscle an’ blood
Muscle an’ blood an’ skin an’ bones
A mind that’s weak and a back that’s strong

[Chorus]
You loaded sixteen tons an’ whaddya get?
Another day older an’ deeper in debt
Saint Peter doncha call me cause I can’t go
I owe my soul to the company store

[Verse 2]
I was born one mornin’ when the sun didn’t shine
Picked up the shovel and I walked to the mine
I loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal
And the straw boss said, «Well, bless my soul!»

[Chorus]
You loaded sixteen tons an’ whaddya get?
Another day older an’ deeper in debt
Saint Peter doncha call me cause I can’t go
I owe my soul to the company store

[Verse 3]
I was born one morning, it was drizzlin’ rain
Fightin’ and trouble are my middle names
Raised in the canebrake by an’ ol’ mama lion
Can’t no high-tone woman make me walk the line

[Chorus]
You loaded sixteen tons an’ whaddya get?
Another day older an’ deeper in debt
Saint Peter doncha call me cause I can’t go
I owe my soul to the company store

[Verse 4]
If you see me comin’, better step aside
A lotta men didn’t, a lotta men died
With one fist of iron, the other of steel
If the right one don’t getcha then the left one will

[Chorus]
You loaded sixteen tons an’ whaddya get?
Another day older an’ deeper in debt
Saint Peter doncha call me cause I can’t go
I owe my soul to the company store

Oh, I could tell you
Please try and understand
’bout the ship left unmanned out at sea
The laughter there is canned
’cause the jokes are secondhand
God forbid I didn’t blend this mutiny

Before the boat’s a wreck
Send a dove to land on deck
’cause the noose around my neck is killing me

The anger makes me boil
The mistakes I make are royal
There’s a sadness in the silent part of me

Where there’s muck
There’s brass
Kiss my ass
Where there’s muck
There’s brass
Kiss my ass

I’m not asking you
I’m telling you
Kiss my aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaass
Don’t tell me the truth
I know I’ve been uncouth
Well, my breath’s a hundred proof, I cannot breathe
Calling ship to shore
Don’t know what all the fuss is for
Save the women and the children after me

Before the boat’s a wreck
Send a dove to land on deck
’cause the noose around my neck is killing me

The anger makes me boil
The mistakes I make are royal
There’s a sadness in the silent part of me

Where there’s muck
There’s brass
Kiss my ass
Where there’s muck
There’s brass
Kiss my ass

I’m not asking you
I’m telling you
Kiss my aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaass
My aaaaaaaaaaaaass
Would’ve been love, should’ve been love, could’ve been love, would’ve been love
Should’ve been love, would’ve been love, would’ve been love, should’ve been love
Would’ve been love, should’ve been love, could’ve been love, would’ve been love
Should’ve been love, would’ve been love, could’ve been love, should’ve been love

Could’ve been love, should’ve been love, could’ve been love, would’ve been love
Should’ve been love, would’ve been love, could’ve been love, should’ve been love
Would’ve been love, should’ve been love, could’ve been love, would’ve been love
Should’ve been love, would’ve been love, should’ve been love

Could’ve been loooooooooooooooove

[Verse 1]
I come from a land of kebabs and curries
Second helpings, no worries
Pile the carbs upon the plate
Then one day, it’s too late

[Verse 2]
No breakfast, no luncheon
Just carpets I’m munching
A thimble of self-esteem
Glazed nothing for afters
An absence of laughter
The saddest that I’ve ever been

[Verse 3]
You just can’t be portly
Not this side of 40
Showbiz, a single chin game
Scum paparazzies
And weight police nasties
Have narrowed the hall of fame

[Chorus 1]
No one likes a fat pop star
Pop is a place for the thin
No one likes a fat pop star
We want to hear thin people sing

[Verse 4]
When I get faint
I chew through my restraints
It’s the best meal that I’ve had all week
If I could eat my own words
I’d tear through the verbs
But nobody pays me to speak

[Chorus 2]
No one likes a fat pop star
Pop is a place for the thin
No one like a fat pop star
We’re sorry, we can’t let you in

[Bridge]
Now you’ve upset me, I feel like a snack
A packet of Minstrels, a pie and a nap
So what’s wrong with that?

[Verse 5]
No breakfast, no luncheon
Just carpets I’m munching
A thimble of self-esteem
Glazed nothing for afters
An absence of laughter
The thinnest that I’ve ever been

[Outro, spoken]
Thank you

I could while away the hours
Conferrin’ with the flowers
Consultin’ with the rain
And my head I’d be scratchin’
While my thoughts were busy hatchin’
If I only had a brain

I’d unravel every riddle for any individ’le
In trouble or in pain
With the thoughts I’d be thinkin’
I could be another Lincoln
If I only had a brain

Oh, I could tell you why the ocean’s near the shore
I could think of things I never thunk before
And then I’d sit, and think some more

I would not be just a nothin’
My head all full of stuffin’
My heart all full of pain
Perhaps I’d deserve you
And be even worthy of you
If I only had a brain

I could while away the hours
Conferrin’ with the flowers
Consultin’ with the rain
And my head I’d be scratchin’
While my thoughts were busy hatchin’
If I only
If I only had a brain

Folks here’s the story ’bout Minnie the Moocher
She was a red-hot hoocie coocher
She was the roughest toughest frail
But Minnie had a heart as big as a whale

Hodehodehodeho (Hodehodehodeho)
Hodehidehidehi (Hodehidehidehi)
Hedehedehedehe (Hedehedehedehe)
Whoaaa (Whooa)

She messed around with a bloke named Smokie
She loved him though he was a tad cokey
He took her down to Chinatown
And showed her how to kick that gong around

Hidehidehidehi (Hidehidehidehi)
Oye yoy yoy (oye yoy yoy)
Aye yayaya (aye yayaya)
Hawaa Haha (Hawaa Haha)

She had a dream about the king of Sweden
He gave her things that she was needin’
He gave her a home built of gold and steel
A diamond car with them platinum wheels

Ahidehidehidehidehidehidehi (Hidehidehidehidehidehidehi)
Hodehodehodehodehodehodeho (Hodehodehodehodehodehodeho)
Whooaaaa (Whoooooaaa)
Naaaah (Naaaah)
Hawaa Haha (Hawaa Haha)
Hohohoho (Hohohoho)

He gave her a townhouse and his racing horses
Each meal she ate was a dozen courses
He had a million dollars worth of nickels and dimes
She sat and counted them a million times

Hidehidehidehi (Hidehidehidehi)
Whooaaaa (Whoooooaaa)
Hedehedehedehe (Hedehedehedehe)
Whoawhoawhoawho (Whoawhoawhoawho)

Poor Min, poor Min, poor Minnie

Well, I wake up in the morning
With my hair down in my eyes
And she says hi
And I hurry to the breakfast table
While the kids are going off to school, goodbye
And she reaches out and takes my hand
And squeezes it and says «how you feelin’ Hon?»
And I look across at smiling lips that warms my heart
And I see my morning sun
And if that’s not loving me
Then all I’ve got to say
God didn’t make little green apples
And it don’t rain in Indianapolis in the summertime
There’s no such thing as Dr. Suess
Disneyland and Mother Goose, no nursery rhyme
God didn’t make little green apples
And it don’t rain in Indianapolis in the summertime
And when my self is feeling low
I think about your face aglow and ease my mind
Sometimes I call him up knowing he’s busy
And ask if he could get away and meet me
And maybe grab a bite to eat
And he drops what he’s doing and hurry’s down to meet me
And I’m always late
But he sits waiting patiently and smiles when he first sees me
Because he’s made that way
And if that’s not loving me
Then all I’ve got to say
God didn’t make little green apples
And it don’t snow in Indianapolis when the winter comes
There’s no such thing as make believe
Puppy dogs or autumn leaves, no B.B. guns
God didn’t make little green apples
And it don’t rain in Indianapolis in the summertime
And when myself is feeling low
I think about your face aglow and ease my mind

Have you seen the well-to-do?
Upon Lennox Avenue
On that famous thoroughfare
With their noses in the air
High hats and narrow collars
White spats and fifteen dollars
Spending every dime on a wonderful time

If you’re blue and you don’t know where to go to
Why don’t you go where Harlem flits
Puttin’ on the Ritz
Spangled gowns upon the bevy of high browns
Down the levy all misfits
Puttin’ on the Ritz

That’s where each and every lulu-belle goes
Every Thursday evening with her swell beaus
Rubbin’ elbows

Come with me and we’ll attend their jubilee and
See them spend their last two bits
Puttin’ on the Ritz

Have you seen the well-to-do?
Upon Lennox Avenue
On that famous thoroughfare
With their noses in the air
High hats and narrow collars
White spats and fifteen dollars
Spending every dime for a wonderful time

If you’re blue and you don’t know where to go to
Why don’t you go where fashion sits
Puttin’ on the Ritz
Spangled gowns upon the bevy of high browns
From down the levy all misfits
Puttin’ on the Ritz

That’s where each and every lulu-belle goes
Every Thursday evening with her swell beaus
Rubbin’ elbows

Come with me and we’ll attend their jubilee
See them spend their last two bits
Puttin’ on the Ritz

[Verse 1]
I’m snowblind looking at you
Let me melt a while in your company
I unwind in your rapture
I’m an overture to your symphony

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Time makes time
A memory between us
Am I still impossible to read?

[Chorus]
While the whole world was looking at you
You came and wrapped yourself around me

[Verse 2]
You feel the sun
I’m work in progress
I’m so far away from where I wanna be
You stole my heart but my madness
Is taking the man right out of me

[Pre-Chorus 2]
You said, we could have been so good together
I complicate so easily

[Chorus]
While the whole world was looking at you
You wrapped yourself around me

[Outro]
So wonderful
Feeling so vulnerable
You’ll never know what you did to me
Can’t disguise
I’m hiding behind my eyes
You could’ve meant the whole world to me

We’re the love brigade
That sings serenades
Flying in G6 jets
Over woodland glades
These are canapés and not hand grenades
And that’s the choice we made

Go USA
Or Taliban chic
If you got massive hands
Or tiny feet
Life hands you lemons then sell lemonade
It’s the choice we made
So….

I’m gonna sell a soda pop
I wanna sell soda pop
I’m gonna sell soda pop
I wanna sell soda pop
Soda!
Yoda!
Bop shoo wop

We like the birds
We go likely lads
I go on strike
We’re not scab scab scabs
The love we lost when no one stayed
It’s the choice we made

They wanna know
About the clothes we wear
If we swing both ways
But who stays there
As long as we get paid we don’t care
The choice is theirs
So….

I’m gonna sell a soda pop
I wanna sell soda pop
I’m gonna sell soda pop
I wanna sell soda pop
Soda!
Yoda!
Bop shoo wop

Come enjoy the madness
How you dance through the fire is all
That matters now
How can you resist us?
We are the business
So….

I’m gonna sell a soda pop
I wanna sell soda pop
I’m gonna sell soda pop
I wanna sell soda pop
Soda!
Yoda!
Bop shoo wop

Come enjoy the madness
How you dance through the fire is all
That matters now
How can you resist us?
We are the business
So, so, so, so!
[Verse 1: Robbie]
Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper, «I love you»
Birds singin’ in the sycamore trees
Dream a little dream of me

[Verse 2: Robbie & Lily]
Say nighty-night and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you’ll miss me
While I’m alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me

[Chorus: Lily]
Stars fading but I linger on dear
Still craving your kiss
I’m longin’ to linger till dawn dear
Just saying this

[Verse 3: Robbie & Lily]
Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me

[Chorus: Lily]
Stars fading but I linger on dear
Still craving your kiss
I’m longin’ to linger till dawn dear
Just saying this

[Verse 3: Robbie & Lily]
Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me
Yes, dream a little dream of me
[Verse 1]
I’m coming out of the sandbox
You’ll get covered in dog doo

I’m gonna get off the sea saw
Say goodbye to your mama
Oh yeah, let’s get high on some Pop Rock
Pop Rock and Coke

I’ll blow your sock off
Teach how to laugh at daddy’s dirty jokes

[Pre-Chorus]
Don’t hedge your bets, double down
If you want to get ahead in Tinsel Town
Turn that smile upside down
Happy people don’t have sex

[Chorus 1]
Now Robbie, everybody swings both ways
From the butchest, the bandits
The fairest, the faggots
And singers with everything they need
Everybody swings both ways
Face it Robbie, you’re a little bit gay
Shall we dance?

[Verse 2]
I’m getting hot on the pavement
Can you find me some grass?
I have a certain arrangement
Up the Khyber Pass
Oh yeah, let’s get high with some fruit cake
Fruit cake and tea
And after I’ve done her
Well you can do me

Oh, boy

[Pre-Chorus]
Don’t hedge your bets, double down
If you want to get ahead in Tinsel Town
Just follow me you enormous clown
Clever people don’t have sex

[Chorus 2]
Now Rufus, everybody swings both ways
The bully, the bigot
The giant, the midget
And singers with everything they need
Everybody swings both ways
Face it Rufus, you’re a tad gay
Oh, yeah?
Face it Robbie
Uh huh?
You’re a little bit gay

Oh it seemed forever stopped today
All the lonely hearts in London
Caught a plane and flew away
The best women are married
The handsome men are gay
You feel deprived

Yeah are you questioning your size?
Is there a tumour in your humour
Are there bags under your eyes?
Do you leave dents where you sit
Are you getting on a bit?
Will you survive
You must survive

When there’s no love in town
This new century is bringing you down
All the places you have been
Trying to find a love supreme
A love supreme

Oh what are you really looking for?
Another partner in your life to abuse and to adore?
Is it lovey dovey stuff
Do you need a bit of rough?
Get on your knees

Yeah turn down the love songs that you hear
‘Cause you can’t avoid the sentiment
That echoes in your ear
Saying love will stop the pain
Saying love will kill the fear
Do you believe
You must believe

When there’s no love in town
This new century is bringing you down
All the places you have been
Trying to find a love supreme
A love supreme

When there’s no love in town
This new century is bringing you down
All the places you have been
Trying to find a love supreme
A love supreme, a love supreme
A love supreme

A love supreme

[Verse 1: Robbie]
I’m the king of the swingers
Oh, the jungle V.I.P
I reached the top and I had to stop
And that’s what bothering me

[Verse 2: Olly]
I want to be a man, man-cub
And stroll right into town
And be just like those other men
I’m tired of monkeying around

[Chorus 1: Robbie & Olly]
Ooh-bi-doo, I wan’na be like you
I want to walk like you, talk like you, too
You see it’s true, an ape like me
Can learn to be human, too

[Verse 3: Robbie]
Don’t try to kid me, man-cub
I made a deal with you
What I desire is man’s red fire
To make my dream’s come true

[Verse 4: Olly]
Now give me the secret, man-cub
Come on, clue me what to do
Give me the power of man’s red flower
So I can be like you

[Chorus 1: Robbie & Olly]
Ooh-bi-doo, I wan’na be like you
I want to walk like you, talk like you, too
You see it’s true, an ape like me
Can learn to be human, too

[Verse 5: Robbie & Olly]
Now I’m the king of the swingers
The jungle V.I.P
I’ve reached the top and had to stop
Cause that’s what bothering me
I want to be a man, man-cub
And stroll right into town
And be just like those other men
We’re tired of monkeying around

[Bridge: Robbie & Olly]
Swing to the left, swing to the right
Put your hands up if you loving life
(Rob, I’m loving life
I’m loving life, Olly
Oh, I’m loving life)
Swing to the left, swing to the right
Put your hands up if you feeling nice
(Feeling nice, feeling nice
Oh, feeling nice)

[Chorus 2: Robbie & Olly]
Ooh-bi-doo, I wan’na be like you
I want to walk like you, talk like you, too
You see it’s true, an ape like me
Can learn to be like someone like you
Can learn to be like someone like you
Can learn to be like someone like you
(I wanna be like you, you know
No, you don’t Olly, serious)
[Verse 1]
You’re gonna meet some strangers
Welcome to the zoo
Bitter disappointments
Except for one or two
Some of them are angry
Some of them are mean
Most of them are twisted
Few of them are clean[Pre-Chorus 1]
Now when you go dancing with young men down at the disco
Just keep it simple
You don’t have to kiss though

Don’t waste time with the idiots that think that they’re heroes
They will betray you
Stick with us weirdos

[Chorus 1]
For all your days and nights
I’m gonna be there
I’m gonna be there, yes I will
Go gentle through your life
If you want me I’ll be there
When you need me I’ll be there for you

[Verse 2]
Don’t try to make them love you
Don’t answer every call
Baby, be a giant
Let the world be small
Some of them are deadly
Some don’t let it show
If they try and hurt you
Just let your daddy know[Pre-Chorus 2]
Now when you go giving your heart make sure they deserve it
If they haven’t earned it
Keep searching, it’s worth it

[Chorus 1]
For all your days and nights
I’m gonna be there
I’m gonna be there, yes I will
Go gentle through your life
If you want me I’ll be there
When you need me I’ll be there for you

[Chorus 2]
Go gentle to the light
I’m gonna be there
I’m gonna be there, yes I will
If all your days are nights
When you want me I’ll be there
Say my name and I’ll be there for you

[Verse 1]
Another dawn, another day
Another dollar to be made
I’ve got a pocket in my soul
Where a little rock, a little roll, assimilate

[Pre-Chorus 1]
And I don’t care what you think you know
Bout who I am and how it goes
I made it easy to be me
So yeah, it’s easy to be me
And that’s why I say

[Chorus 1]
I know you can’t stand me
Cause I make you so angry
More and more each day
Hey, hey, hey
The way you don’t love me
Kinda makes you look ugly
Every word you say
Hey, hey, hey
Come up and see me
Ho, ho, ho
I kinda like the abuse
There’s no room in my bed
But while you’re here
Just bow your head
And you can shine my shoes
Shine my shoes

[Verse 2]
Get out of my lane, boy
You’re not in my league
Some are born to thrive
And some to underachieve

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Here’s something that’ll make you sick
I’m as happy as a pig in shhh-
I’ve been amused, I’ve been admired
I’ve been amazed, I’ve been betrayed
That’s why I say

[Chorus 2]
I know you can’t stand me
Cause I make you so angry
More and more each day
Hey, hey, hey
The way you don’t love me
Kinda makes you look ugly
Every word you say
Hey, hey, hey
Come up and see me
Ho, ho, ho
If you can take the abuse
There’s no room in my band
But while you’re here, then lend a hand
And you can shine my shoes

Shine my shoes
Kneel down, boy

[Chorus 3]
It’s why you can’t stand me
I make you so angry
More and more each day
Hey, hey, hey
The way you don’t love me
Kinda makes you look ugly
Every word you say
Hey, hey, hey
Come up and see me
Ho, ho, ho
I kinda like the abuse
There’s no room in my bed
But while you’re here
Then bow your head
And you can shine my shoes
Shine my shoes
Shine my shoes
Until I see my face

[Verse 1]
Well, it was years ago, long before I’d ever met the Queen
I would stay up all night and act like heaven was a place I’d already seen
And then you straddled me, like a bridge going somewhere good
And I looked at your eyes and I was like… oh my word

[Chorus]
This is how I fell in love
(That was the moment when I)
No one ever near good enough
(That was the moment when I)

[Verse 2]
It started years ago long before I’d ever been to see
Us, hoping she would come and find, run and find me
But I was somewhere out of time, out of space, out of whack
It’s the unknown now, can never look back

[Chorus]
This is how I fell in love
(That was the moment when I)
No one ever near good enough
(That was the moment when I)
That’s why I fell in love

[Bridge]
And I hope it don’t change
And I hope it stays the same
And I hope we do remain best friends
Cause I love you more than life
Take a bullet for you
I swear, I swear
In a heartbeat
I’d jump in front of that gun
And take a bullet for you baby
Instantly

[Chorus 2]
You’re why I fell in love
(Take a bullet for you baby)
And that’s why it hurts
(Take a bullet for you baby)

I’d take a bullet for you
I’d take a bullet for you
I’d take a bullet for you
I’d take a bullet for you
I adore you
I adore you
I love
You

[Chorus]
This is how I fell in love
(That was the moment when I)
No one ever near good enough
(That was the moment when I)

[Outro]
Never look back
Never look back
Never look back

[Verse 1]
A kind of fire seldom seen
Stepping into your machine
Hoping I can turn it on
She dances all night and sleeps all day
Her room’s a mess, her dad’s away
She puts her heroes on the wall

[Chorus 1]
With her green light, green light
To hold a faded flower to my chest
Green light, green light
‘Cause only faded flowers are the best

[Verse 2]
She said the things you will expect
From magazines, her intellect
These are words I will forget
She likes the boys that sing the songs
Something wicked this way comes
I know I can sing along

[Chorus 2]
Just give me the green light, green light
To hold a faded flower to my chest
Green light, green light
‘Cause underrated flowers are the best

[Break]
I was barely out of school
We were in Ibiza
She knew someone who I was with
I’ve never seen anything like her before
She is trouble
Exquisite trouble
«I’m out of your league, son», she seemed to say
And for a little while, she was

[Bridge]
Leave the light on
Leave the light on
Leave the light on
Just leave the light on

[Chorus 3]
She gave me the green light, green light
To hold the faded flower to my chest
She gave me the green light, green light
Those overrated flowers are the best

Cause only faded flowers are the best

[Break]
Cocaine
Cocaine

[Verse 1]
Look at the mess we all made of ourselves
I don’t remember it well
Everyone trying to be someone else
I was someone else as well
But it’s alright
When you’re getting the show right

[Break]
Cocaine
Cocaine

[Verse 2]
Can you recall all the cubicle scenes?
Didn’t we talk well?
Professional northerners we might’ve been
We got a new walk as well
But it’s alright
When you get your stroll right

[Break]
Cocaine
Cocaine

[Chorus]
Stuck in a lift with a vacuum nosepipe
Stuck where the god sights fronting star fight
Super Tony
Going too far, Tony
And yes it’s all about me again, boys
This is the part where I do the northern way
Super Tony
Going too far, Tony

[Break]
Cocaine

[Verse 3]
Isn’t it nice that our fingers make Vs?
Let’s throw ’em all night
I got a nose bleed and nobody cares
Up with the big heads
But it’s alright
When you’re so bright

[Chorus]
Stuck in a lift with a vacuum nosepipe
Stuck where the god sights fronting star fight
Super Tony
Going too far, Tony
And yes it’s all about me again, boys
This is the part where I do the northern way
Super Tony
Going too far, Tony

[Verse 4]
Thou art holier than I
But didn’t I do well?
Shoveling snow with the best of the worst
People you know well
But it’s alright
Cause you’re snow white

[Chorus]
Stuck in a lift with a vacuum nosepipe
Stuck where the god sights fronting star fight
Super Tony
Going too far, Tony
And yes it’s all about me again, boys
This is the part where I do the northern way
Super Tony
Going too far, Tony

[Verse 1]
The car’s always there at nine
Though he’s never out on time
Night after night, line after line
He’ll be fine, I suppose
The famous Mr. Jones

[Verse 2]
He really should relax
He’s due a heart attack
Though there’s no heart to attack
Is it an act? No one knows
The naughty Mr. Jones

[Chorus]
In a world full of weird, you’re the oddest ever
Heard you brought everyone here so much pleasure, clever
We all know that you know you’re a national treasure
Mrs Jones, you made the best boy ever, ever, E-V-E-R

[Verse 3]
He’s careful with his weight
Pushes food around the plate
He could never pass as straight
Ask his mates how it goes
The careful Mr. Jones

[Verse 4]
Even his mother thinks he’s odd
He hasn’t got a proper job
But he says neither did God
And he’s the Lord
As it goes, the mighty Mr. Jones

[Chorus]
In a world full of weird, you’re the oddest ever
Heard you brought everyone here so much pleasure, clever
We all know that you know you’re a national treasure
Mrs Jones, you made the best boy ever, ever, E-V-E-R

In a world full of weird, you’re the oddest ever
Heard you brought everyone here so much pleasure, clever
We all know that you know you’re a national treasure
Mrs Jones, you made the best boy ever, ever

[Bridge]
The moral of this tale
Is when everything’s for sale
Good men seldom prevail, they all fail
As he knows, the gifted Mr. Jones

[Intro]
I’m very excited to be here yet again
It’s an honour to be nominated of course
Bla bla bla…

[Verse 1]
Well that Brits night was so fucking boring
Past the days of yes, yes, Charlene
Coke in the bogs till seven in the morning
Look the wrong way and we end up brawling
When I had a bit of beef with you know who
And I fucked a few female stars or two
Nearly everything I said I’d end getting screwed
Spitting at the paps, looking rude in the news
Oh yes, you’re still rocking with the best
Second person in my year to have touched a breast
I’m nearly forty now and I’m still impressed

Here’s the midlife crisis I guess
Oh, I recall taking in the wonder of it all

[Chorus]
I’m still looking for an answer through the looking grass
Still not concentrating at the back of the class
No thanks, Sir, this one’s for you
It’s like a VD clinic: only pricks are in it
So fucking dull and professional and timid
To be frank, Sir, I prefer this showbiz chancer
I still want to get laid by you, right

[Verse 2]
Now I know I’ve got fat, but make no mistake
Every million that I make they bake me a cake
So I’ve got plenty, a hundred and twenty
Wear clothes of tweed like I’m landed gentry
I still want to get you naked
I’ll see you in the summer, so glad you could make it
I’ll be that mega white thing, fast as lightning
In Knebworth shape but twice as frightening
If they can’t be bothered then I promise you this
If they won’t entertain you then I’ll do my fucking best

[Chorus]
Still looking for an answer through the looking grass
Still not concentrating at the back of the class
No thanks, Sir, this one’s for you
It’s like a VD clinic: only pricks are in it
So fucking corporate and professional and timid
To be frank, Sir, I prefer this showbiz chancer
I still want to get laid by you

[Bridge]
Would you let me lay you down right here?
Would you let me live?

[Chorus]
Still looking for an answer through the looking grass
Still not concentrating at the back of the class
No thanks, Sir, this one’s for you
It’s like a VD clinic: only pricks are in it
So fucking dull and professional and timid
To be frank, Sir, I prefer this showbiz chancer

I’m still looking for an answer through the looking grass
Still not concentrating at the back of the class
No thanks, Sir, this one’s for you
Its like a VD clinic: only pricks are in it
So fucking corporate and professional and timid
To be frank, Sir, I prefer this showbiz chancer
Where’s your head? Maladjusted
There’s no justice more or less
That bein’ said, build on trust
It’s all there since we must confess

Ah, have I lost you yet?
Ah, have I lost you?
Oh yes, your love is the best
Fly me
Be the pilot

You can’t be
Just a lost cold demon
You can’t be
Just plain bad, come on
You can’t be
Just lying in your bed
Lying there alone
It’s not right, babe

Ah, have I lost you yet?
Ah, have I lost you?
Oh yes, your love is the best
Fly me, be the pilot
Oh yes, your love is the best
Fly me
Be the pilot

Oh, wherever you may go
Whatever you might do
I will catch your fall
I’ll be there for you
And when you’re feeling weak
Not getting what you need
I will make you see
That love is best with me

We’re unbeatable, yes
My heart beats a rhythm inside of your chest
We’re unbeatable, yes
Your heart beats a rhythm inside of my chest
We’re unbeatable, yes
My heart beats a rhythm inside of your chest
We’re unbeatable, yes
Your heart beats a rhythm inside of my chest

Oh yes, your love is the best
Fly me
Be the pilot

We’re unbeatable, yes
My heart beats a rhythm inside of your chest
We’re unbeatable, yes
Your heart beats a rhythm inside of my chest
We’re unbeatable, yes
My heart beats a rhythm inside of your chest
We’re unbeatable, yes
Your heart beats a rhythm inside of my chest

[Verse 1]
Wasn’t restless, I was fine
Casting pearls before swine
You weren’t a tempest, not at all
Just kind and beautiful

[Chorus 1]
Little by little
You started making me love
We started making it up
We made up over and over and over
Little by little
You started making me love
Don’t stop making it up
Let’s make it over and over and over
Maybe your cure could change the world
Cause your cure sure changed me
Little by little you started making me love
You started making me love

[Verse 2]
I was reckless, you joined in too
I like that about you
You saw it all, that first night
The best and worst of me, but it didn’t make you leave

[Chorus 2]
Little by little
You started making me love
We started making it up
We made up over and over and over
Little by little
You started making me love
Don’t stop making it up
Let’s make it over and over and over
Maybe your cure could save the world
Cause your cure sure saved me
Little by little you started making me love
You started making me love

[Bridge]
It all makes sense now, me and you
Somehow we made it through, made it through
Made it through
Made it through

[Chorus 1]
Little by little
You started making me love
We started making it up
We made up over and over and over
Little by little
You started making me love
Don’t stop making it up
Let’s make it over and over and over
Maybe your cure could change the world
Cause your cure sure changed me
Little by little you started making me love
You started making me love

[Verse 1]
If life is a shrine
I hold contempt for the divine
If not for my spine
I wouldn’t see it through
Now I like the peace
I’m waiting for a heart to speak
Ogres and freaks
Sold love to you

[Chorus 1]
Cause love is you
Love is what you put me through
I am lost, you are too
Love is you
One minute you’re fine
Then love will go and change its mind
I have lost all that truth
Loving you

[Verse 2]
Thought I had to say something
What I should have said was nothing
Kept it swept under the rug
You know what’s mad
Is I’m in pain cause I made you sad
And you still don’t understand at all

[Chorus 2]
Love is you
Love is what I’m going through
I have lost, you have too
Love is you
One minute you’re fine
Then love will go and change its mind
I have lost all that’s true
Loving you

[Chorus 3]
Cause love is you
Love is what you made me do
I am seeking, you were too
Love is you
One minute you’re fine
Then love will go and change its mind
I have lost all that truth
Loving you

[Verse 1]
I came in peace and I survived
I let the light destroy the lies
Till there’s no bitterness inside
And I’ll be kind but I won’t be cheap
There is no limit here for me
I’m taking everything I need
The world’s alive, but it’s run by thieves
Trying to take your soul before you leave
And it can break you down if you don’t break through
Take back control

[Half-Chorus]
When you feel like hope is gone
And there’s no need to soldier on
No surrender
Don’t you surrender, my love

[Verse 2]
I bit the world, the world bit back
This shout of love is not an act
And I’d care less if you don’t understand
So when they sing the symphony
It will be written just for me
A most joyous melody

Seek joy, avoid pain
Wake up and do it again
This is your home, this is your life
Take back control[Chorus]
When you feel like hope is gone
And there’s no need to soldier on
No surrender
Now don’t you surrender, my love
Cause you’re not here for very long
So when you leave, go with a song
No surrender
Let it be no surrender, my love

[Bridge]
Treat me like a king, kiss me like a stranger
Treat me like a king, kiss me like a stranger
Treat me like a king, kiss me like a stranger
Treat me like a king, kiss me like a stranger

[Chorus]
When you feel like hope is gone
And there’s no need to soldier on
No surrender
Don’t you surrender, my love
(Cause you’re not here for very long)
I bit the world, the world bit back
This shot of love is not an act
(So when you leave, go with a song)
And I’d care less if you don’t understand
(No surrender) No surrender
Let it be no surrender, my love

[Bridge]
Treat me like a king, kiss me like a stranger
Treat me like a king, kiss me like a stranger
All climb on
Whatever you’ve seen
Whatever it’s done
All climb on
Whatever it takes
Whatever you’re on

And the truth is we don’t know
About how or why or where or when we go
Oh, we must be very brave
I came here for eternity
It took my breath away
And I was told I couldn’t stay

All climb on
The bodies you’ve left
The battles you’ve won

Oh we’re all born naked
It’s not that complicated
I climb on
By chance or grand design
We were built to climb
It’s a sign
Climb on

And the truth is we don’t know
About how or why or where or when we go
In the end, no matter what
I’m gonna make the most of what precious time I’ve got
From the cradle to the grave
To take those opportunities I must be very brave
Could it all be a mistake?

Too scared to care
Too hurt to love
Enough
Climb on
Too scared to breathe
In here with me
My love
Climb on

It’s my soul transmission
A higher calling, call it love
Climb on
All my life these visions
Telling me to keep on fighting
Climb on

Oh, oh, oh, climb on
Oh, oh, oh, climb on

Too scared to care
Too hurt to love
Enough
Climb on
Too scared to breathe
In here with me
My love
Climb on
[Verse 1]
I used to wander to the edge and look down
I used to pile up promises then leave town
You should have heard my best excuses
So profound and so untrue
But now I wake up next to you

[Verse 2]
Each time I slip feels like the world conspires
To underline my most impure desires
Thought all of those who swear by love
They were mental through and through
But now I wake up next to you

[Chorus]
And the nights are still as long as they ever were
All the things that could go wrong, well they still occur
But when the violent sun breaks the morning air
It will find me there, next to you

[Verse 3]
I had to lose myself for years to find this
Mistook the cruelty and abuse for kindness
Didn’t know yet what to keep zipped shut
My own blindness stole the view
But now I wake up next to you

[Chorus]
And the nights are still as long as they ever were
All the things that could go wrong, well they still occur
But when the violent sun breaks the morning air
It will find me there, next to you

[Bridge]
Where did it all go right?
When did it all go right?
When did it all go right?
Where did it all go right?

[Verse 1]

I used to wander to the edge and look down
I used to pile up promises then leave town
You should have heard my best excuses
So profound and so untrue
But now I wake up next to you

[Bridge]
I’ll always walk back from the edge
Find a way to you
I’ll always walk back from the edge
Find a way to get to you
I’ll always walk back from the edge
Find a way to you
I’ll always walk back from the edge
Find a way to get to you

Brothers
If only God can judge us
Then who clear up the rubbish down here
Cause they don’t care for us

There’s trouble
Calling out of that rubble
The whole world is in a bubble I swear
And the shit that you were fed
Is in your head
It’s the heavy entertainment show

See the world through its ancient eyes
We are living in the wildest times
Lost my mind a while ago
When and where I do not know
We are living in a world of lies
And we’ve been giving it its wildest ride
Hit them hard way down below
At the heavy entertainment show

Chief suspects
The military complex
And bankers let genocide fly
We do what the man says then go to bed
Then go to bed
At the heavy entertainment show
See the world through its ancient eyes
We are living in the wildest times
Lost my mind a while ago
When and where I do not know
We are living in a world of lies
And we’ve been giving it its wildest ride
Hit them hard way down below
At the heavy entertainment show

Hey good looking why don’t you come over here
Tell me a few things that I wanna hear
You come whisper them inside of my ear
Tear down the walls make them disappear
I said hey good looking would you come my way
Still got a few songs left to play
And I’ve got two tickets would you like to go
To the heavy entertainment show

See the world through its ancient eyes
We are living in the wildest times
Lost my mind a while ago
When and where I do not know
We are living in a world of lies
And we’ve been giving it its wildest ride
Hit them hard way down below
At the heavy entertainment show

[Verse 1]
A is for absolutely everybody
And at first light
B is for brilliant and broke
Nearly all of the time
C is for coming on strong
Cause everyone knows
Till the death of it all
We’re not going home
You set out to dance
Real hard to find
Only the brave
Expanding the mind
You were hands in the air
Cause love was the drug
We were breaking the law
Making it up
The DJ said «Raver, get off the speaker
You’re blocking the laser for the dance off

[Chorus]
I ran with the runaways, runaways, who run away
I ran with the runaways, runaways, who run away

[Verse 2]
These are the days that make sense of my life
Like a galaxy rising into the night
I get a little bit high and then loaded alone
I am not going home
I go out dancing, raving with strangers
Unwound emotion on the dance floor

[Chorus]
I ran with the runaways, runaways, who run away
I ran with the runaways, runaways, who run away

[Bridge]
One scream for the last romantic
One heart for the last romantic
One hope for the last romantic
One scream, one dream, yeah

[Break]
We’re the shit that’s on the radio
We’re the shit that’s on the radio
We’re the shit that’s on the radio
We’re the shit that’s on the radio
I would go dancing, raving with strangers
Unwound emotion on the dance floor

[Chorus]

[Bridge](x2)
We’re the shit that’s on the radio
We’re the shit that’s on the radio
We’re the shit that’s on the radio
We’re the shit that’s on the radio
I would go dancing, raving with strangers
Unwound emotion on the dance floor

We’re the shit that’s on the radio
We’re the shit that’s on the radio
We’re the shit that’s on the radio
We’re the shit that’s on the radio
I would go dancing, raving with strangers
Unwound emotion on the dance floor

[Verse 1]
Never test the temper of a patient man
You’ve been trying to be understood and boy, do I understand
When you die, the world’s gonna be lighter
See the heart of the champion through the eye of the tiger
I simply don’t care, if you hate me or love me
Pass me the pistol, shoot the bully
Hoo, ha, hoo, ha, hoo, ha
The bully, the bully, the bully, the bully

[Chorus]
Hoo ha, had to hurt myself
Hoo ha, shot myself again
Hoo ha, I can’t make it up
The bully, the bully, the bully, the bully

[Verse 2]
I’mma make it go away, I’mma make it disappear
Hell is empty mama, the devil’s here
Look at you, walking round like you’re some kind of genius
Feel the steel, go tell it to Jesus
I’ve seen your soul, man, it’s so ugly
Cock the pistol, shoot the bully
Hoo, ha, hoo, ha, hoo, ha
The bully, the bully, the bully, the bully

[Chorus]
Hoo ha, had to hurt myself
Hoo ha, shot myself again
Hoo ha, I can’t make it up
The bully, the bully, the bully, the bully

[Bridge]
I’ve seen your soul, man, it’s so ugly
If they wanna know, tell them I shot the bully
Hoo, ha, hoo, ha, hoo, ha
The bully, the bully, the bully, the bully

[Verse 1: Ronan Keating]
I guess I went a little crazy
I was out of my depth
Felt intimidated, couldn’t catch my breathe
I had to say the big goodbye
‘Cause I wanna go home
The only soul you could save these days is your own

[Chorus: Ronan Keating & Robbie Williams]
Oh, say, can you see? (Everybody’s gone a little crazy)
The tunnel of light (Everybody’s got an old soul)
A band of angels that you seek when you’re alive
Oh, look away (Everybody’s gone a little crazy)
Something I have to do (Everybody’s got an old soul)
Please don’t follow me, I’ll wait for you

[Verse 2: Ronan Keating]
I live through the lies that kill me inside
One day, I’ll meet them all when they decide
You know when I’m there (You know when I’m there)
I’ll be the rash on your skin
Right there by your side when the rage sets in oh, oh

[Chorus: Ronan Keating & Robbie Williams]
Oh, say, can you see? (Everybody’s gone a little crazy)
The tunnel of light (Everybody’s got an old soul)
A band of angels that you seek when you’re alive
Oh, look away (Everybody’s gone a little crazy)
Something I have to do (Everybody’s got an old soul)
Please don’t follow me, I’ll wait for you

[Bridge: Robbie Williams]
Everybody knows that there’s a ghost in my machine
I’ve been standin’ round yellin’, «Cut the feed!»
Kinda of sweet how it feels when it’s goin’ down down, down, yeah
When the rollin’ of the thunder stops
I’ll be your microphone into your heart
Here they come now, I’m fadin’ away
‘Way, ‘way, ‘way, ‘way
Fadin’ away

[Chorus: Ronan Keating]
Oh, can you see? (Everybody’s gone a little crazy)
The tunnel of light (Everybody’s got an old soul)
A band of angels that you seek when you’re alive (When you’re alive)
Oh, look away (Everybody’s gone a little crazy)
There’s something I have to do (Everybody’s got an old soul)
Please don’t follow me, I’ll wait for you

[Outro: Robbie Williams]
(Everybody’s gone a little crazy)
(Everybody’s got an old soul)
There’s a ghost in my machine

[Verse 1]
And they want us to grow up
But we don’t want to get a job
We all need a decent rock
Where it’s all kicking off

[Chorus]
Baby, it’s alright
Baby, it’s all-a-alright
You don’t need to call the fuzz
Baby, it’s alright
Baby, it’s all-a-alright, it’s only us

[Verse 2]
We’re just after cheaper thrills
Since the price went up on pills
From Stoke-on-Trent to Beverly Hills
You know it’s all kicking off

[Chorus]
Baby, it’s alright
Baby, it’s all-a-alright
You don’t need to cause a fuss
Baby, it’s alright
Baby, it’s all-a-alright, it’s only us
It’s only us
Rock me, Amadeus!

[Bridge]
Where it’s all kicking off?

[Chorus]
Baby, it’s alright
Baby, it’s all-a-alright
You don’t need to cause a fuss
Baby, it’s alright
Baby, it’s all-a-alright, it’s only us
It’s only us
(You don’t need to cause a fuss)
It’s only us

[Chorus]
I’ve been hanging around
Just in case you fall in love with me
I know you have doubts
I hear when you shout
‘Cause I understand you see

[Verse 1]
I was concerned when you said
You’d rather wake up dead
Than spend a day with me
I know that’s not you
I know and it’s true
They don’t understand you like I do

[Chorus]
I’ve been hanging around
Just in case you fall in love with me
I know you have doubts
I hear when you shout
‘Cause I understand you see

[Interlude]
Hi, it’s me again, yay, I got on parole!
Yeah, um, if you could just, er, pick up the phone
I’d like to talk to you, please!

[Verse 2]
I’ve seen misery
And have a strange empathy
With the woman who kidnaps her lover
This love ain’t a dream
I know it’s obscene
The calls that I left for your mother

[Chorus]
I’ve been hanging around
Just in case you fall in love with me
I know you have doubts
I hear when you shout
‘Cause I understand you see

[Interlude]
I love you, too, every day, perhaps someday we could meet
Face to face this time
I’m sorry about that letter I sent you
The newspaper cuttings and stuff and blood

[Chorus]
I’ve been hanging around
Just in case you fall in love with me
I know you have doubts
I hear you when you shout
‘Cause I understand you see
Just tell me that you love me

[Verse 1]
Stand your ground
You’re big enough
Stand your ground
You know too much

[Chorus]
Today drifts into tomorrow
And you can almost taste the sorrow

[Verse 2]
Stand your ground
You’ve had enough
Lost and found
Diamond in the rough

[Chorus]
Today drifts into tomorrow
You feel your soul’s been borrowed

[Bridge]
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh

[Verse 3]
Stand your ground
The water’s deep
Feel the sand beneath your feet
I know your prayers seem hollow
But when it’s hard they follow

[Outro]
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh

[Verse 1]
She lies on the bed with her hands in her head and she screams
He gets a kick out of losing the plot, so it seems
He makes you all laugh so she’s the one doing harm
But how can you fight when she’s not the one under his arm

[Chorus]
These dreams have let you down
Take it, don’t break it, just turn it around
These dreams won’t let you down

[Verse 2]
You never stopped loving his misfortunate lazy ways
All the memories that you should’ve had are a cabaret haze
There’s just a hole where you know he should’ve been
There’s no one worse off than you, when you can’t describe what you’ve seen

[Chorus]
These dreams have let you down
Take it, don’t break it, just turn it around
These dreams won’t let you down

[Bridge]
Where do you go when you’re all alone in your bed
Do you cry in your sleep ’cause it’s better unsaid
Have you forgotten your past because that’s how it seems
Is it too hard to think so you edit your dreams and play them back again and again

[Chorus]
These dreams have let you down
Take it, don’t break it, just turn it around
These dreams won’t let you down

[Outro]
You’ve got tomorrow tomorrow
You’ve got tomorrow tomorrow
You’ve got tomorrow tomorrow
You’ve got tomorrow tomorrow
You’ve got tomorrow tomorrow

[Verse 1]
Sitting in the cheap seats underneath the stars
I’m heading back to base, I’ll drop you off at Mars
I’m sure I know your face or what star you’re from
I try to make conversation but I’m too far gone

[Chorus]
I’m a man machine
Drinking gasoline
Super human being
Shooting laser beams

[Verse 2]
How you gonna leave, when your bags ain’t packed?
And how you gonna shoot, when we’re back to back?
How d’you tell a joke, when you can’t laugh?
You know that you’re the punchline, baby, take a bath

[Chorus]
I’m a man machine
Drinking gasoline
Super human being
I’m a queen’s dream

[Bridge]
The dog has ate my homework today
It’s not done, it ain’t done
I have heard they’re not very well
In the sun

[Chorus]
‘Cause I’m a man machine
I’m a queen’s dream
Drinking gasoline
I’m a queens dream
Yeah, help

[Verse 4]
How you gonna live for love lying on your back?
And how you gonna keep it clean in a dirty mac?
How you gonna breathe when you’re lost in space?
You’re dazed and amused, talking through a different face

[Chorus]
‘Cause I’m a man machine
Drinking gasoline
I’m a teen dream
I’m a man machine
I’m a man machine
I’m a man machine
Drinking gasoline

[Chorus]
I was her, she was me
We were one, we were free
And if there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one

[Verse 1]
We were young, we were wrong
We were fine all along
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
When you get to where you wanna go
And you know the things you wanna know
You’re smiling
When you said what you wanna say
And you know the way you wanna play
You’ll be so high you’ll be flying

[Verse 2]
Though the sea will be strong
I know we’ll carry on
Cause if there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one

[Bridge 1]
When you get to where you wanna go
And you know the things you wanna know
You’re smiling
When you said what you wanna say
And you know the way you wanna say it
You’ll be so high you’ll be flying

[Chorus]
I was her, she was me
We were one, we were free
And if there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one

[Outro]
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
Yeah she’s the one
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
She’s the one
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one

[Intro]
You’ve been naughty, very very naughty

[Verse 1]
Are you cut up?
Or do you easily forget?
Are you still around?
Why haven’t you managed to die yet?
You could prop up the bar in hell

[Chorus]
How do you sleep?
You’ve never loved
Why was I never good enough?
You thought you’d leave me falling forever
Karma killer

[Verse 2]
Needless to say
I guess you know I hate you
You’re so full of sin
Even the devil rates you
I hope you choke
On your Bacardi and Coke

[Chorus]
How do you breathe?
Why don’t you cry?
How come you never ask me why?
You’re not a man, stand and deliver
Karma killer
How do you sleep?
You’ve never loved
Why was I never good enough?
You thought you’d leave me falling forever
Karma killer, karma killer
Karma killer, karma killer

[Verse 3]
I hope you choke
On your Bacardi and Coke

[Bridge]
Look what you didn’t take from me
Look what you didn’t take from me
Look what you didn’t take from me
Look what you didn’t take from me
No no no no no no no no no no no no
(I don’t need to take revenge
‘Cause they’re coming to get you)
No no no no no no no no no no no no
(There’s no hope for you my friend
‘Cause they’re coming to get you)

[Outro]
Karma killer
Karma killer
Karma killer
Karma killer
Karma killer
Karma killer

[Verse 1]
Know no fear, I’ll still be here tomorrow
Bend my ear, I’m not gonna go away

[Chorus]
You are love, so why do you shed a tear?
Know no fear, you will see heaven from here

[Verse 2]
I’ll shelter you make it alright to cry
And you’ll help too ’cause the faith in myself has run dry

[Chorus]
We are love and I just wanna hold you near
Know no fear, we will see heaven from here

[Bridge]
I see real love in your eyes
And it fills me up when you start to cry

[Chorus]
I just wanna hold you near
We will see heaven from here
Well it all seems out of reach
I will take that blame if it keeps the peace

[Verse 3]
My shelf life’s short
Wish they’d make it more easy to follow
And I’ve been caught with nothing but
Love on my mind

[Chorus]
We are love, don’t let it fall on deaf ears
Now it’s clear, we have seen heaven from here

[Verse 1]
Ooh, we’ve got a live one, featherweight icon
Heroes let ‘im down so he sleeps with the
Light on
And there’s nothin’ left to do but kneel down and pray
Sail away with Caesar if you’re a nonbeliever
Everybody gets high if you’re a
Diamond geezer
It’s the devil that needs ya so go out and play

[Pre-Chorus]
Blame yourself it’s easier
There’s no need to trouble her, you trouble her

[Chorus]
Jesus in a camper van He said sorry to
Leave you but I’ve done all I can
I suppose even the son of God
Gets it hard sometimes
Especially when he goes around
Saying I am the way

[Verse 2]
And now it’s four in the mornin’ yes yes y’all in
No one can shoot but everybody’s scoring
Trust me it’s boring get down and pray
They told you not to meddle with the bass and
The treble
There’s dust on your needle and you think that You’re a rebel
You’re Evel Knievel so get down and pray

[Pre-Chorus]
Blame yourself it’s easier
There’s no need to trouble her, you trouble her

[Chorus]
Jesus in a camper van He said sorry to
Leave you but I’ve done all I can
I suppose even the son of God
Gets it hard sometimes
Especially when he goes around
Saying I am the way

[Bridge]
I am the way, I am the way, I am the way
I am the way
I am, I am, I am, I am, I am, I am the way

[Chorus]
Jesus in a camper van he said sorry to
Leave you but I’ve done all I can
I suppose even the son of God
Gets it hard sometimes
Jesus in a camper van he said sorry to
Leave you but I’ve done all I can
I suppose even the son of God
Gets it hard sometimes

[Pre-Chorus]
Blame yourself it’s easier
There’s no need to trouble her
Blame yourself it’s easier
There’s no need to trouble her

[Chorus]
Jesus in a camper van he said sorry to
Leave you but I’ve done all I can
I suppose even the son of God
Gets it hard sometimes

[Chorus]
Jesus in a camper van He said sorry to
Leave you but I’ve done all I can
I suppose even the son of God
Gets it hard sometimes
Especially when he goes around
Saying I am the way
Jesus in a camper van he said sorry to
Leave you but I’ve done all I can
I suppose even the son of God
Gets it hard sometimes

[Verse 1]
Sometimes I feel like I am sailing on a sunken dream
I try to read the signs but don’t know what they mean
I know when I’m with you
I’m a rich man baby

[Chorus]
Grace, I’m not yet born
Come embrace a soul that’s torn
I have got so much to give you

[Verse 2]
My heart is starved of love in these radio days
I try to listen hard to what my conscience says
I know I’ve sold my soul
I’m going to earn it back now

[Chorus]
Grace, I’m not yet born
Come embrace a soul that’s torn
I have got so much to give you

[Bridge]
Now that you believe in me
We can fly away somewhere safe
I know that you will always be
Giving more than you take

[Verse 3]
I know when I’m with you
I’m a rich man baby

[Chorus]
Grace, I’m not yet born
Come embrace a soul that’s torn
Grace, it can mend
If you make my heart your friend

[Outro]
Grace
Grace
Grace
Grace

[Intro: Nicole Appleton]
Love you, baby
I love you, baby
I love you, baby

[Verse 1]
We didn’t think it’d last beyond summer
I met her father, she met my mother
We didn’t have anywhere else to go
She said to me when we grow older
Will we still need young love on our shoulders
Does it just fade away, will we ever know

[Pre-Chorus]
She touched my face and called me her lover
I never thought that I’d need another

[Chorus]
Your cool suburban sun
You’re fooling everyone
You win some, you lose some

[Verse 2]
I didn’t know what we had found
Just caught the bus and rode it to town
She wouldn’t notice anything else but me

[Chorus]
Your cool suburban sun
You’re fooling everyone
You win some, you lose some

[Bridge]
Dancing at discos and moaning at phone bills
Torremolinos and sunburnt in high heels
Swap it and sell it and drop it and smell it
All those years ago

[Pre-Chorus]
She touched my face and called me her lover
I never thought that I’d need another

[Chorus]
Your cool suburban sun
You’re fooling everyone
You win some, you lose some
Your cool suburban sun
You’re fooling everyone
You win some, you lose some
Now it’s gone, now it’s gone
You win some, you lose some
Now it’s gone, now it’s gone
You win some, you lose some
Now it’s gone, now it’s gone
You win some, you lose some
Now it’s gone, now it’s gone
You win some, you lose some
Win some

[Outro]
I love you, baby

[Verse 1]
Silence shields the pain
So you say nothing
Feel they’ve rigged the game
And you’re done with loving
Only you can see the darkness in the northern lights

[Chorus]
Phoenix from the flames
We will rise together
They will know our names
Can you feel it?
Shelter me from pain
I always wanna feel this way, oh yeah
Just like a phoenix from the flames

[Verse 2]
Wish they’d take you back
Cause you miss heaven
Too many bags to pack
So leave them where they are
Tonight you’re flying on a golden dream

[Chorus]
Phoenix from the flames
We will rise together
They will know our names
Can you feel it?
Shelter me from pain
I always wanna feel this way, oh yeah

[Bridge]
Everybody’s talking
Nobody’s listening
Too busy thinking ’bout what you’ve been missing
Everybody said you’re gonna take it
Too far baby now
Well come on
When you’re done with lovin’
It comes down to nothing
Can you feel it
Can you feel it
Can you feel it

[Chorus]
Phoenix from the flames
We will rise together
They will know our names
Can you feel it?
Shelter me from pain
I always wanna feel this way, oh yeah
Just like a phoenix from the flames
Phoenix from the flames
We will rise together
They will know our names
Can you feel it?
Shelter me from pain
I always wanna feel this way, oh yeah
Just like a phoenix from the flames
Why don’t you come and deny it?
You know you can’t deny it
I always wanna feel this way
Just like a phoenix from the flames

[Chorus]
We’ve got stars directing our fate
And we’re praying it’s not too late
Millennium

[Verse 1]
Some say that we are players
Some say that we are pawns
But we’ve been making money
Since the day that we were born
Got to slow down
Cause we’re low down
Run around in circles
Live a life of solitude
Till we find ourselves a partner
Someone to relate to
Then we’ll slow down
Before we fall down

[Chorus]
We’ve got stars directing our fate
And we’re praying it’s not too late
Cause we know we’re falling from grace
Millennium

[Verse 2]
Live for liposuction
And detox for your rent
Overdose at Christmas
And give it up for Lent
My friends are all so cynical
Refuse to keep the faith
We all enjoy the madness
Cause we know we’re gonna fade away

[Chorus]
We’ve got stars directing our fate
And we’re praying it’s not too late
Cause we know we’re falling from grace
Millennium

[Bridge]
Come and have a go if you think you are hard enough
Come and have a go if you think you are hard enough
Millennium, millennium

[Chorus]
We’ve got stars directing our fate
And we’re praying it’s not too late
Cause we know we’re falling from grace
Millennium
(Sometimes you know)

[Chorus 2]
And when we come we always come too late
I often think that we were born to hate
Get up and see the sarcasm in my eyes
And when we come we always come too late
I often think that we were born to hate
Get up and see the sarcasm in my eyes

[Chorus]
We’ve got stars directing our fate (Millennium)
And we’re praying it’s not too late (Millennium)
Cause we know we’re falling from grace (Millennium)
(And we won’t stop)
We’ve got stars directing our fate
And we’re praying it’s not too late
Cause we know we’re falling from grace
Millennium

[Verse 1]
Tell me a story
Where we all change
And we’d live our lives together
And not enstranged

[Pre-Chorus]
I didn’t lose my mind it was
Mine to give away
Couldn’t stay to watch me cry
You didn’t have the time
So I softly slip away…

[Chorus]
No regrets they don’t work
No regrets they only hurt
Sing me a love song
Drop me a line
Suppose it’s just a point of view
But they tell me I’m doing fine

[Verse 2]
I know from the outside
We looked good for each other
Felt things were going wrong
When you didn’t like my mother

[Pre-Chorus]
I don’t want to hate but that’s
All you’ve left me with
A bitter aftertaste and a fantasy of
How we all could live

[Chorus]
No regrets they don’t work
No regrets they only hurt
(We’ve been told you stay up late)
I know they’re still talking
(You’re far too short to carry weight)
The demons in your head
(Return the videos they’re late)
If I could just stop hating you
(Goodbye)
I’d feel sorry for us instead

[Bridge]
Remember the photographs (insane)
The ones where we all laugh (so lame)
We were having the time of our lives
Well thank you it was a real blast

[Chorus]
No regrets they don’t work
No regrets they only hurt
Write me a love song
Drop me a line
Suppose it’s just a point of view
But they tell me I’m doing fine

[Outro]
Everything I wanted to be
Every time I walked away
Everytime you told me to leave
I just wanted to stay
Every time you looked at me and
Everytime you smiled
I felt so vacant you treat me like a child
I loved the way we used to laugh
I loved the way we used to smile
Often I sit down and think of you for a while
Then it passes me by and I think of someone else instead
I guess the love we once had is
Officially dead

[Verse 1]
My breath smells of a thousand fags
And when I’m drunk I dance like me Dad
I’ve started to dress a bit like him
And early morning when I wake up
I look like Kiss but without the make up
And that’s a good line to take it to the bridge

[Pre-Chorus]
And you know and you know
‘Cause my life’s a mess
And I’m trying to grow
So before I’m old I’ll confess

[Chorus]
You think that I’m strong
You’re wrong, you’re wrong
I’ll sing my song, my song, my song

[Verse 2]
My bed’s full of takeaways
And fantasies of easy lays
The pause button’s broke on my video
And is this real cause I feel fake
Oprah Winfrey, Ricki Lake
Teach me things I don’t need to know

[Pre-Chorus]
And you know and you know
‘Cause my life’s a mess
And it’s starting to show
So before I’m old I’ll confess

[Chorus]
You think that I’m strong
You’re wrong, you’re wrong
I’ll sing my song, my song, my song

[Bridge]
If I did it all again I’d be a nun
The rain was never cold when I was young
I’m still young, we’re still young
Life’s too short to be afraid
Step inside the sun

[Pre-Chorus]
And you know and you know
Cause my life’s a mess
And I’m trying to grow

[Chorus]
You think that I’m strong
You’re wrong, you’re wrong
I’ll sing my song, my song, my song
You think that I’m strong
You’re wrong, you’re wrong
I’ll sing my song, my song, my song

[Outro]
Life’s too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You don’t have to take the blame
Life’s too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You don’t have to take the blame
Life’s too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You don’t have to take the blame

Hello sir, remember me?
I’m the man you thought I’d never be
The boy who you reduced to tears
Lad called ‘thingy’ for six whole years

Yes, that’s right, my name’s Bob
The one who landed the pop star’s job
The one you told, look don’t touch
The kid who wouldn’t amount to much

Well, I’m here and you’re still there
With a fake sports car and receding hair
Dodgy farah trousers that you think are smart
Married to the woman who teaches art

Married to the life, married to the school
I wanna sing and dance sir, now who’s the fool?
Sing and dance, you thought I was barmy
Settle down thingy, join the army

And who are you to tell me this?
The dream I want I’ll have to miss
Sir is god, he’s been given the right
To structure lives overnight

Now I know life’s true path
Tanks and guns that’ll be a laugh
No, not me I’m a mega civilian
I won’t lead my life riding pillion

But thanks for the advice and I’m sure it’ll do
For the negative dickheads just like you
As for now I’ve a different weapon
Stage and screen is about to beckon

And here I sit in first class
Bollocks sir, kiss my arse…

[Verse 1]
I’ve got your rainbows, seen your sunbeams
I know a place where heaven breathes
And it’s through her window
Your baby girl’s window
I know your happy where you are
Singing to the moon talking to the stars
Through her window
Your baby girl’s window
There’s finger marks around her soul
But your laughter fills the hole
Through her window
Your baby girl’s window

[Chorus]
Aaah I wish you would stay
Aaah to see what she made of herself

[Verse 2]
People say you were gone too soon
I see your face when flowers bloom
Through her window
Your baby girl’s window
I’m looking for the words to say
Something to take the pain away
Through her window

[Chorus]
Aaah I wish you would stay
Aaah to see what she made of herself

[Verse 1]
There was a time
When crazy days would start with wine
And now I tow a different line
I stay in bed
And use my loaf instead of my bread
And stroll on
‘Cause I’ve been thinking so long
That something’s gonna go wrong
It’s gone to my head
My vision’s all blurred
And my legs feel like lead

[Chorus]
But I’m clean yeah
Friends with Mr. Sheen yeah
Don’t have to wean myself off of nothing
I’m two minutes clean and that’s not very often
Stroll on

[Verse 2]
There was a time
When I would dread what I’d said
Waking up in someone’s bed
Wondering who I was
Naked and cold with an ache in my head
And stroll on
‘Cause I’ve been thinking so long
That something’s gonna go wrong
It’s gone to my head
My vision’s all blurred
And my legs feel like lead

[Chorus]
But I’m clean yeah
Friends with Charlie Sheen yeah
Gonna meet the Queen yeah
She’s two minutes clean
And that’s not very often
Stroll on and on
Clean yeah
Friends with Mr Sheen yeah
Don’t have to wean myself off of nothing
I’m two minutes clean
And that’s not very often
I’m clean yeah
Gonna meet the Queen yeah
I won’t be obscene yeah
‘Cause I’m two minutes clean
And that’s not very often
Stroll on
And on
And on and on and on and on and on and on
Oh yeah

[Verse 1]
I don’t mind the abuse
It fills in time when I’m not much use
But it’s killing me, killing me slowly
They all say I’m too restless
But words cut deep when you’re defenseless
And they’re killing me, killing me slowly

[Chorus]
There was a time when we were fine
And I could tolerate you
I do believe that you should leave
‘Cause I’ve grown to hate you
Should I be weak and turn my cheek
‘Cause I’m scared to fall
But I just don’t know you
And you don’t know me at all

[Verse 2]
I’ve been told that love’s a celebration
But I’ve lost faith through frustration
And it’s killing me, but killing me slowly

[Bridge]
You paint my picture black
The joke’s on me and I don’t wanna laugh
Remember the good times
Won’t you bring them back someday, somehow

[Verse 3]
I don’t mind feeling blue
If I could smile just like you do
And it’s killing me, killing me slowly

[Chorus]
I can’t go on alone
Pretending nothing’s wrong
Maybe I just want to belong
Someday, somehow, somehow

[Verse 1]
Hell is gone and heaven’s here
There’s nothing left for you to fear
Shake your ass come over here
Now scream
I’m a burning effigy
Of everything I used to be
You’re my rock of empathy, my dear

[Chorus]
So come on, let me entertain you
Let me entertain you

[Verse 2]
Life’s too short for you to die
So grab yourself an alibi
Heaven knows your mother lied, mon cher
Separate your right from wrongs
Come and sing a different song
The kettle’s on, so don’t be long, mon cher

[Chorus]
So come on, let me entertain you
Let me entertain you

[Verse 3]
Look me up in the yellow pages
I will be your rock of ages
You see through fads and your crazy phrases, yeah
Little Bo Peep has lost his sheep
He popped a pill and fell asleep
The dew is wet but the grass is sweet, my dear

[Bridge]
Your mind gets burned with the habits you’ve learned
But we’re the generation that’s got to be heard
You’re tired of your teachers and your school’s a drag
You’re not going to end up like your mum and dad

[Chorus]
So come on, let me entertain you
Let me entertain you
Let me entertain you

[Bridge]
He may be good he may be out of sight
But he can’t be here so come around tonight
Here is the place where the feeling grows
You gotta get high before you taste the lows

[Chorus]
Let me entertain you
Let me entertain you
So come on, let me entertain you
Let me entertain you

[Outro]
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on, come on

[Verse 1]
You’re one of God’s better people
And you don’t know
That’s why you’re special
And I cry so I can talk like this
From my downbeat existence
And I know that you can make my wish
If my wish is pure

[Pre-Chorus]
But I don’t know
I just don’t know
I don’t know
Let me love you so

[Chorus]
Now I can’t live this without you
I’d die without you
Without you, without you

[Verse 2]
You’re one of God’s better people
And you don’t know
That’s why you’re special
It must hurt to see your favourite man
Lose himself again and again
And I know you that you’re my only friend
From way back when

[Pre-Chorus]
My wish was pure
It was oh so pure
It was pure
I couldn’t love you more

[Chorus]
Now I can’t live this without you
I’d die without you
Without you
Now I can’t live this without you
I’d die without you
Without you, without you

[Bridge]
And everybody’s going to step aside
As you spread your wings and you will fly
And take me to the other side where they know
‘Cause I don’t know no more
I just don’t know no more
I don’t know
Let me love you so

[Chorus]
Now I can’t live this without you
I’d die without you
Without you
Now I can’t live this without you
I’d die without you
Without you, without you

[Outro]
You’re one of God’s better people
And you don’t know
That’s why you’re special

[Verse 1]
She’s taking me places I should never have been
She’s showing me faces I should never have seen
Well these are strange days we’re living in today
C’est la vie I say

[Chorus]
I hope I’m old before I die
I hope I live to relive the days gone by
I hope I’m old before I die
But tonight I’m gonna live for today
So come along for the ride
I hope I’m old before I die

[Verse 2]
She’s not feeling stable, she’s unable to breathe
Her heart’s beating faster so I’ll ask her to leave
These are strange days we’re living in today
Am I straight or gay?

[Chorus]
I hope I’m old before I die
I hope I live to see the day the Pope gets high
I hope I’m old before I die
Well tonight I’m gonna live for today
So come along for the ride
I hope I’m old before I die

[Bridge]
Well these are strange days we’re living in today
C’est la vie I say, I say. I say

[Chorus]
I hope I’m old before I die
I hope I live to relive the days gone by
I hope I’m old before I die
But tonight I’m gonna live for today
So come along for the ride
I hope I’m old before I die
I hope I’m old before I die
Old before I die
Old before, old before I die and die and die and die
Old before I die
Old before I die

[Verse 1]
I know a freaky young lady name of Cocaine Katie
She makes my temperature freeze
She’s got a blood red powder when she gives a shout
She’ll bring you to your knees
Well we were being clever playing God games forever
She said she only meant to please
But I’m someone’s brother, got a father and a mother
You know I’m going to have to leave

[Chorus]
South of the border
I think you oughta
South of the border
I think you oughta
‘Cause you know you’re gonna have to leave
To a place where you can breathe
And you know there’s no reprieve

[Verse 2]
There’ll be tears on leaving but there won’t be no grieving
‘Cause a city soon forgets
To me it’s magic, to the landlord it’s tragic
He’s got another room to let
There’ll be the same old faces in the same old places
Where my youth was well misspent
But I tow the line and move the time
To a town called «No Regrets»

[Chorus]
South of the border
I think you oughta
South of the border
I think you oughta
‘Cause you know you’re gonna have to leave
To a place where you can breathe
And you know there’s no reprieve
‘Cause you know you’re gonna have to leave
To a place where you can breathe
And you know there’s no reprieve

[Verse 1]
I sit and wait, does an angel contemplate my fate?
And do they know the places where we go when we’re grey and old?
Cause I have been told that salvation lets their wings unfold
So when I’m lying in my bed, thoughts running through my head
And I feel that love is dead, I’m loving angels instead

[Chorus]
And through it all, she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection, whether I’m right or wrong
And down the waterfall, wherever it may take me
I know that life won’t break me
When I come to call, she won’t forsake me
I’m loving angels instead

[Verse 2]
When I’m feeling weak and my pain walks down a one-way street
I look above and I know I’ll always be blessed with love
And as the feeling grows, she breathes flesh to my bones
And when love is dead, I’m loving angels instead

[Chorus]
And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection, whether I’m right or wrong
And down the waterfall, wherever it may take me
I know that life won’t break me
When I come to call, she won’t forsake me

[Instrumental Bridge]

[Chorus]
I’m loving angels instead
And through it all, she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection, whether I’m right or wrong
And down the waterfall, wherever it may take me
I know that life won’t break me
When I come to call, she won’t forsake me
I’m loving angels instead

[Verse 1]
Where were you when you stole my pride
Did you ever get the feeling that someone died
Hide away in your ivory tower
And cover me in your golden shower
Did I make you laugh when I played the clown
And was I the dog that bit you when you put it down?
Break it nicely, break it slow
Break it so I got no place to go

[Chorus]
Ego a go go
Now you’ve gone solo
Living on a memory
Where you been lately
And do you still hate me
Could you offer an apology
Aaah turn away
Aaah fade to grey
And here’s another thing

[Verse 2]
Where were you when the party ended?
Were you stitching up the wounds that you thought I need mending?
Wonderland has crashed to the ground
The circus is gone, all that’s left is the clowns
Did I break your heart when I stole your thunder?
Was there woodworm in the table your feet are under?
Break it nicely, break it slow
Break it so I got no place to go

[Chorus]
Ego a go go
Now you’ve gone solo
Living on a memory
Now you’ve gone stately
And yes, you do hate me
Could you offer an apology
Aaah turn away
Aaah fade to grey
Aaah I hope you’ve strayed
Aaah and got laid

[Outro]
Ego a go go

[Chorus]
Wake up on Sunday morning
Everything feels so boring
Is that where it ends
With your life thru a lens

[Verse 1]
Hair is the new hat, brown is the new black
She shouldn’t wear this, he shouldn’t wear that
Pleasure at leisure
Make mine a double measure with friends
Fashion tardis down at Quo Vadis
Who laughs the longest, who tries the hardest
Pleasure at leisure
Make mine a double measure with friends

[Pre-Chorus]
Just because I ain’t double barrelled
Don’t mean I haven’t travelled well
Can’t you tell?
Oh now, it’s quite appalling
Your conversation is boring as hell
Oh well

[Chorus]
Wake up on Sunday morning
And everything feels so boring
Is that where it ends
With your life thru a lens
And now your boyfriend’s suspicious
So go home and wash the dishes
And wash them well
So he can’t tell

[Verse 2]
She’s looking real drab, just out of rehab
I’m talking football, she’s talking ab fab
Your clothes are very kitch
Just because your daddy is rich
You sound so funny with your voice all plummy
Now your cheque’s just bounced, better run to your mummy
And you know it’s a class act
She’ll never ask for it back

[Pre-Chorus]
Just because I ain’t double barrelled
Don’t mean I haven’t travelled well
Can’t you tell

[Chorus]
Mix with the local gentry
And don’t crash Tarquin’s Bentley
I’ll take the bends
With our life thru a lens
You’re scared of the poor and needy
Is that why you’re all inbreedy?
They’re just like you
They need love too
Wake up on Sunday morning
And everything feels so boring
Is that where it ends
With your life thru a lens
And now your boyfriend’s suspicious
So go home and wash the dishes
And wash them well
So he can’t tell?

[Verse 1]
Lazy days calling to you
Come out to play
The future lies with you
Now you can be sure love is the cure
What we’re searching for
Is to have a jolly good time
Crazy days but you’ll get me through
And here I’ll stay holding on to you
Now you can be sure
Our thoughts unpure
Will unlock the door
And we will have a jolly good time

[Chorus]
It can happen in any season
We don’t need any reason
To sit around and wait
The world can change in a second so
I find the sunshine beckons me
To open up the gate
And dream and dream

[Verse 2]
Lazy days don’t let them get you down
Wear your smile
I don’t want to see you frown
Don’t let them get you down

[Chorus]
It can happen in any season
We don’t need any reason
To sit around and wait
The world can change in a second so
I find the sunshine beckons me
To open up the gate
And dream and dream

[Outro]
Then we will have a jolly good time, time
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Verse 1]
Silence in the courtyard
Silence in the streets
The biggest mouth in the world
Is just about to speak
And what I wanna say is
Four simple words
In this particular order
So here it goes

[Pre-Chorus]
You make me feel
Like nothing has been real
Until now

[Chorus]
Please, I’m on one knee
I can see
Will you marry me?

[Verse 2]
Silence for a moment
Silence from the world
These are the four words
That simply must be heard
I’m not that romantic
And I know I get things wrong
And ’bout the time I get to say I’m sorry
It’s been too long

[Pre-Chorus]
But you make me feel
Like nothing has been real
Until now

[Chorus]
Please
(I love you more than life)
I’m on one knee
(I want you for my wife)
I can see
(Lead me to the light)
Will you marry me?
Oh, my darling
Please
(I love you more than life)
I’m on one knee
(I want you for my wife)
I can see
(Lead me to the light)

[Bridge]
I won’t give up
I won’t break down
In a little while
So give it up
Or put me down
Anyway meanwhile

[Chorus]
Please
(I love you more than life)
I’m on one knee
(I want you for my wife)
I can see
(Lead me to the light)
Will you marry me?
Everybody say
Please
(I love you more than life)
I’m on one knee
(I want you for my wife)
I can see
(Lead me to the light)
Will you marry me?

[Outro]
(I love you more than life
I want you for my wife
Lead me to the light)
Will you marry me?

[Verse 1]
Every now and then I wanna feel the escape
When the depression sets in and my spirit breaks
And I go out hunting demons and they make me beg
Got me pissing in the wind, down my own damn leg
If God wrote a book ’bout everything that he’s done
I’d go searching for my name, now wouldn’t everyone?
And you can tell me point-blank that I’m a narcissist
I’m just needing confirmation that I exist

[Chorus 1]
Please don’t read my mind
I’m so scared of what you’ll find
I haven’t left it all behind
So much hate ’cause of all the hurt
No idea what I’m really worth
I’m holding out for peace and air time

[Verse 2]
You have to understand that my intentions are good
And everything I do I do for love
I got two little souls and I love them, man
That I’m trying to lead to the promised land
We take big ol’ trips out to the country side
Got a big old house where we reside
And there’s a big old boy with a big old gun
Stays up all night in case the weirdos come

[Chorus 2]
I had a job but I resigned
Then I had a change of mind
I will again if I’m inclined
Another moan from a millionaire
I don’t know why I’m telling you ’cause you don’t care
I’m holding out for peace and air time

[Outro]
I’m a little bit older but not wiser still
I was smoking marijuana, taking sleeping pills
But I get up in the morning, take the kids to school
And my other indiscretions are so miniscule
And I really pray to God it stays that way
‘Cause deep inside I think I’m still hurting
When you take your chances and you ride your luck
All you’re really saying is ‘I could fuck this up’
You have to understand that my intentions are good
And everything I do I do for love
I made a ton of mistakes, it’s either fight or flight
But every now and then
I kinda get it right
(He kinda gets it right)
I kinda get it right
(He kinda gets it right)

[Verse 1]
You can have anything
Anything, they say
A million sweet temptations
A billion times a day
Pale imitations is all I got
I want it all and you got the lot

[Chorus]
I don’t want to hurt you
Ain’t that what the players say?
While they seal your fate
And lie right to your face
I don’t want to hurt you
‘Cause I recognise the truth
That you cannot be replaced
So I’m just not going to

[Verse 2]
So you’ve chosen me
And honoured me with your love
You showed me a world
And what it could be made of
Thought you were crazy
To put your trust in me
‘Cause I doubted myself
From the beginning so completely

[Chorus]
I don’t want to hurt you
Ain’t that what the players say?
While they seal your fate
And lie right to your face
I don’t want to hurt you
‘Cause I recognise the truth
You cannot be replaced
So I’m just not going to

[Chorus]
I don’t want to hurt you
Ain’t that what the players say?
While they seal your fate
And lie right to your face
I don’t want to hurt you
‘Cause I recognise the truth
You cannot be replaced
So I’m just not going to

[Intro]
What’s behind your eyes makes you a star

[Verse 1]
I want to take my time on earth
And give it meaning
They say you get what you deserve
I know the feeling
Those dumb looks only get you so far
What’s behind your eyes makes you a star

[Chorus]
I’m gonna walk onto that stage like it’s my destiny
Stand and tell the truth, make no apologies
If tomorrow I should die, these are my memories
I’m gonna take this simple life and make history

[Verse 2]
I dream a fantasy and then achieve it
Repeat the greatest lie till they believe it
You and me, not gods, define us now
You come in screaming, leave in silence

[Chorus]
Oh, I’m gonna walk onto that stage like it’s my destiny
Stand and tell the truth, make no apologies
If tomorrow I should die, these are my memories
I’m gonna take this simple life and make history

[Bridge]
Let’s fly higher than the mocking birds
They won’t touch us way up here
In the sole asylum of the universe
A man can disappear
Raise a glass to the disfunctional
It’s never ever too late
I fell like miracles are happening
If I could just get out the way

[Verse 3]
I want to take my time on earth
And give it meaning
They say you get what you deserve
I know the feeling, feeling, feeling

[Chorus 2]
You’ve gotta walk onto that stage like it’s your destiny
Stand and tell the truth, make no apologies
If tomorrow you should die, these are your memories
You’ve gotta take this simple life and make history

[Verse 1]
Bad love, mediocre sex
Didn’t care who’s coming next
Nights spent rolling out for danger
Days spent waking up with strangers
Leave
You’re not as strange as me
Drinking, drugging, rock and roll
Appliances you put in holes
Supermodels, movie stars
Waitresses and girls from Mars
Weren’t you
They just weren’t you

[Chorus 1]
She said I love you so
Maybe it’s easy, it’s easy
How could I ever know
Things ain’t been that easy, not easy for me
But when you know, you know
This one I’ll never let, never let go

[Verse 2]
Hard to know which lies to keep
Talking in someone else’s sleep
You wear a mask for long enough
You just forget to take it off
Not you
You could see right through

[Chorus 2]
Around you I’m just myself
And maybe it’s easy, it’s easy
When I found you, I found myself
You made it so easy, so easy for me
But when you know, you know
This one I’ll never let, never let go

[Bridge]
I built a kingdom up on the hill
If you hadn’t found me, I’d be there still
Up on that hill
Your tank rolled right through
Love’s a revolution, revolution for two

[Chorus 3]
She said I love you so
Maybe it’s easy, it’s easy
How could I ever know
She hates the same people as, people as me
But when you know, you know
This one I’ll never let, never let go

[Verse 1]
You’ve been sensational
You really did your bit
It’s been emotional
You know I love that shit
You look incredible
Even from afar
I think you’re sexy and you’re funny
And I love you ’cause you love me
And I wish that you could always stay
Now go away

[Chorus]
It’s so unusual to feel this good
I’d sing forever if I could
Maybe I should
I’m that good
You better believe it

[Verse 2]
You’ve been so beautiful
It’s just who you are
I’d have you up here
But I’m the star
I wanna get physical
But ain’t that about a bitch
And isn’t it a pity
That I gotta leave the city
But you knew it had to end this way
Now go away

[Chorus]
It’s so unusual to feel this good
I’d sing forever if I could
Maybe I should
I’m that good
You better believe it

[Verse 3]
You’ve been affectionate
You dirty bunch of sluts
So disproportionate
Loving you so much
I’m hung like a dolphin
Maybe I’ve said too much

[Outro]
Yeah, I’m semi-serious with you right now
God bless you all, I love you so much
I love you so much
Auf Wiedersehen
Bless you all, I love you so much
I love you so much
Auf Wiedersehen
Bless you all, I love you so much
I love you so much
Auf Wiedersehen
Bless you all, I love you so much
I love you so much
Auf Wiedersehen

[Intro]
«Everyone suggesting, inferring, in bold type
The idiots and actually the minority
That I’m wasted, that I’m strung out
Well, they all should be wondering why the hell I’m not!»

[Verse 1: Robbie Williams]
I’m gonna speak my truth, I think I’m losing it
Feel kinda liberated just a little bit
And I’m a Big Mac short of a Happy Meal
Not sure what to say or how to feel

[Chorus: Rufus Wainwright]
Checking into Hotel Crazy
Leaving all my bags in the lobby
The velvet stairs don’t make a sound
As we’re hitting up to a higher ground

[Post-Chorus: Rufus & Robbie]
Holding on to something that’s gone in the wind
Holding on to something that’s gone in the wind

[Verse 2: Robbie Williams]
I’ve got the right to vote and I can reproduce
And I can tell a lie just like I tell the truth
I have crazy thoughts, I do crazy deeds
I have special times for my special needs
I present myself as a normal dude
Look you in the eye when I talk to you
Just a touch of the old socio
Is it empathy? I guess I’ll never know

[Interlude]
«It’s sensational, I really only care about me
Is this the end of the road? I want a new road
And the only thing that they should be checking out is my ass»

[Chorus: Rufus Wainwright]
Checking into Hotel Crazy
Leaving all my bags in the lobby
The velvet stairs don’t make a sound
As we’re hitting up to a higher ground
Checking into Hotel Crazy
Do disturb me
Gonna make you mad
Gonna make you sad
Gonna make you all of it here

[Post-Chorus: Rufus & Robbie]
Holding on to something that’s gone in the wind
Holding on to something that’s gone in the wind
Holding on to something that’s gone in the wind
Holding on to something that’s gone in the wind

[Outro: Robbie Williams]
I think I can do it
I think I can do it
I think I can do it
I think I can do this
I think I can do it
I think I can do it
I think I can do this

[Verse 1]
Hey, pretty woman, I wanna take you out
I know a place, we can move our feet downtown
Ease into the rhythm when I hear that sound
My momma taught me and I do not back down
Hey, pretty woman, I love the way you move
Winding down low to that baseline groove
The way you’re dancing got me in the mood
Daddy told me it’s what grown folks do
Let me tell ya now
Hey, pretty woman, Imma testify
Hey, pretty woman make a grown man cry

[Chorus]
You can make me beg
Take my last dollar (take my last dollar)
Oh, honey, you can take it anyway you wanna
The way you move your legs
Well, it just ain’t proper
Why don’t you shake what you’ve been given from your momma?

[Verse 2]
Hey, pretty woman, come and hold my hand
Dancing the Charleston to that old swing band
I know that it’s getting late but you don’t mind
Let’s take a taxi and get back to mine
Hey, pretty woman, your daddy don’t know
Take what you want from me, I can’t say no
Just put your hands on my body, let me taste your lips
I put my hands on your body, baby, work those hips

[Chorus]
You can make me beg
Take my last dollar (take my last dollar)
Oh, honey, you can take it anyway you wanna
The way you move your legs
Well, it just ain’t proper
Why don’t you shake what you’ve been given from your momma?

[Bridge]
Hey, pretty woman, na, na, na, I’m in love
You are the only one I’m thinking of
Hey, pretty woman, if you feel the same
Just say «hey there, boy, bring that beat back again»

[Chorus]
You can make me beg
Take my last dollar (take my last dollar)
Oh, honey, you can take it anyway you wanna, wanna
The way you move your legs
Well, it just ain’t proper
Why don’t you shake what you’ve been given from your momma?
You can make me beg
Take my last dollar, dollar (take my last dollar)
Oh, honey, you can take it anyway you wanna
The way you move your legs
Well, it just ain’t proper
Why don’t you shake what you’ve been given from your momma?

[Verse 1]
Hold me now, I think I might be dying
I’m not ashamed to say that I am frightened
Hold me now, I used to heal like lightning
Are yours the last eyes that I’ll ever see
Staring into me?

[Pre-Chorus]
Was I just because
A mistake in love
Two people who stop trying enough
Don’t want a brand new life
This one’s just right
Why would I throw it all away?

[Chorus]
Won’t you hold me now?
Just before I stop breathing
I know I promised I wouldn’t leave here without you
Please, don’t let me go
While they play the last song ever
The last chance to hold each other forever

[Verse 2]
Hold me now, I’ve still got words worth hearing
I just wanna be a human being
Hold me now, we all know what I’m fearing
I think I see the light, am I disappearing?

[Pre-Chorus]
Was I just because
A mistake in love
Two people who stop trying enough
Don’t want a brand new life
This one’s just right
Why would I throw it all away?

[Chorus]
Won’t you hold me now?
Just before I stop breathing
I know I promised I wouldn’t leave here without you
Please, don’t let me go
While they play the last song ever
The last chance to hold each other forever

[Chorus]
Won’t you hold me now?
Just before I stop breathing
I know I promised I wouldn’t leave here without you
Please, don’t let me go
While they play the last song ever
The last chance to hold each other forever

[Outro]
Hold me now
Remember how we were at the beginning

[Verse 1]
I can’t analyze that love
Cause you turned the beat to thunder
You’re 25 below
Don’t it make you wonder why
Let’s get it on, and on, and on, and on
Let’s get it on, and on, and on
Let’s get it on, and on, and on, and on
Girl, I don’t know why you’re not H-A-P-P-Y

[Pre-Chorus]
So you wanna find a real man?
Make him fall in love?
No matter how thick your skin is
Never thick enough
Someone that you can lean on
When times are tough
Maybe there’s a reason

[Chorus]
Girl, I don’t know why you get so sensitive, sensitive, sensitive
When I touch it
You get so sensitive, sensitive, sensitive
And you love it, yeah
You get so sensitive, sensitive, sensitive
Sometimes I wonder cause
Girl, I don’t know why you’re not H-A-P-P-Y

[Verse 2]
Maybe you came from outer space
Maybe I can help you let go
When you walk around the place
All that I can hear is your echo
If I heard what you’ve been saying
Then you know it isn’t right
There’s always something I’m not doing
That won’t keep you satisfied
Let’s get it on, and on, and on, and on
Girl, I don’t know why you’re not H-A-P-P-Y

[Pre-Chorus]
So you wanna find a real man?
Make him fall in love?
No matter how thick your skin is
Never thick enough
Someone that you can lean on
When times are tough
Maybe there’s a reason

[Chorus]
Girl, I don’t know why you get so sensitive, sensitive, sensitive
When I touch it
You get so sensitive, sensitive, sensitive
And you love it, yeah
You get so sensitive, sensitive, sensitive
Sometimes I wonder cause
Girl, I don’t know why you’re not H-A-P-P-Y

[Bridge]
Just finding reasons
That I can make you happy, happy
Just finding reasons
That I can make you happy at all

[Chorus]
Girl, I don’t know why you get so sensitive, sensitive, sensitive
When I touch it
You get so sensitive, sensitive, sensitive
And you love it, yeah
You get so sensitive, sensitive, sensitive
Sometimes I wonder cause
Girl, I don’t know why you’re not H-A-P-P-Y

[Verse 1]
I was a sick child
Teardrop in the rain now
Whole life a hurricane of pain and doubt
No redemption if you call my name
I’m gonna rock you till you sing it
Again and again
Come on

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m getting better
I’m so much better
Bruce Lee told me to be
Like water flowing

[Chorus]
Don’t you go throwing shade at me
Don’t you go throwing shade
Oh, when you do that thing
Babw, it cuts a beautiful line
When you’re a bright young thing
Ain’t it just a beautiful life

[Verse 2]
I’m like a jet plane, cruising at velocity
A cut vein dripping my biology
Got no dimensions
Ain’t got no novacaine
I’m gonna sing it till I bleed it
Again and again
Come on

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m getting better
I’m so much better
Bruce Lee told me to be
Like water flowing off

[Chorus]
Don’t you go throwing shade at me
Don’t you go throwing shade
Oh, when you do that thing
Babe, it cuts a beautiful line
When you’re a bright young thing
Ain’t it just a beautiful life

[Bridge]
I’ve got to leave this house and go and find the others
There’s got to be some freaks like me
A bit mental but we make damn good lovers

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m getting better
I’m so much better
Bruce Lee told me to be
Like water flowing off

[Chorus]
Don’t you go throwing shade at me
Don’t you go throwing shade
Oh, when you do that thing
Babe, it cuts a beautiful line
When you’re a bright young thing
Ain’t it just a beautiful life
A beautiful life
I love her mind
She’s out of her mind
But I don’t mind
I don’t mind
But I don’t mind

[Verse 1]
Come in and close the door
I think it’s time you knew the score
Why you feel weird
One day you’re gonna be told about
How daddy had let his demons out
Yeah, he made ’em scream and shout

[Pre-Chorus 1]
One day soon you’ll be old enough
You’ll go out on your own and stuff
If you start losing hold of love
It’s because…

[Chorus]
Your uncle sells drugs
Your cousin is a cutter
Your grandma is a fluffer
Your granddad’s in the gutter
Your mother is a nutter
Your mother is a nutter
We are mad motherfuckers
You’re a bad motherfucker
And I’d like to sing a song that says that you’ll be fine
Now you know me so you know that I’d be lying
One of the things you get from me and your mother
Is that we’re bad motherfuckers
You’re a bad motherfucker

[Verse 2]
Helps to know where you come from
When days are hard and things go wrong
I pray our weakness makes you strong
Well, strangers come and lovers leave
You can rest assured we’ll always be
Your ever loving family

[Pre-Chorus 2]
So before you leave when you’re old enough
When you go out on your own and stuff
You start losing hold of love
It’s because…

[Chorus]
Your uncle sells drugs
Your cousin is a cutter
Your grandma is a fluffer
Your granddad’s in the gutter
Your mother is a nutter
Your mother is a nutter
We are mad motherfuckers
You’re a bad motherfucker
And I’d like to sing a song that says that you’ll be fine
Now you know me so you know that I’d be lying
One of the things you get from me and your mother
Is that we’re bad motherfuckers
You’re a bad motherfucker
[Bridge]
But we all believe that you’re gonna break the chain
And we all believe you’re the one
We all believe that the angels are watching over you
My son

[Chorus]
Because…
Your uncle sells drugs
Your cousin is a cutter
Your grandma is a fluffer
Your granddad’s in the gutter
Your mother is a nutter
Your mother is a nutter
We are mad motherfuckers
You’re a bad motherfucker
And I’d like to sing a song that says that you’ll be fine
Now you know me so you know that I’d be lying
One of the things you get from me and your mother
Is that we’re bad motherfuckers
You’re a bad motherfucker
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
Hey yeah, hey yeah, hey
Ooh, ooh, ooh, oh, oh, oh
Bad motherfucker
You’re a bad motherfucker
Your uncle sells drugs
Your cousin is a cutter
Your grandma is a fluffer
Your granddad’s in the gutter
Your mother is a nutter
Your mother is a nutter
We are mad motherfuckers
You’re a bad motherfucker
And I’d like to sing a song that says that you’ll be fine
Now you know me so you know that I’d be lying
One of the things you get from me and your mother
Is that we’re bad motherfuckers
You’re a bad motherfucker

[Verse 1]
Tether your soul to me
I will never let go completely
One day your hands will be
Strong enough to hold me

[Pre-Chorus 1]
I might not be there for all your battles
But you’ll win them eventually
I’ll pray that I’m giving you all that matters
So one day you’ll say to me

[Chorus]
I love my life
I am powerful
I am beautiful
I am free
I love my life
I am wonderful
I am magical
I am me
I love my life

[Verse 2]
I am not my mistakes
And God knows I’ve made a few
I started to question the angels
And the answer they gave was you

[Pre-Chorus]
I cannot promise there won’t be sadness
I wish I could take it from you
But you’ll find the courage to face the madness
And sing it because it’s true

[Chorus]
I love my life
I am powerful
I am beautiful
I am free
I love my life
I am wonderful
I am magical
I am me
I love my life

[Bridge]
Find the others
With hearts
Like yours
Run far, run free
I’m with you

[Chorus]
I love my life
I am powerful
I am beautiful
I am free
I love my life
I am wonderful
I am magical
I am me
I love my life
I am powerful
I am beautiful
I am free
I love my life
I am wonderful
I am magical
I am me
I love my life

[Outro]
And finally
I’m where I wanna be

[Verse 1]
I tried your number at 9 but to no avail
Tried again at 11, got sent straight to voicemail
You said you needed a calm, quiet night alone
But that don’t explain why you’re not picking up the phone
Now I’m driving through the city like a bullet in my seat
And I hold my breath when I hit your street
You were restless when you told me everything was alright
One quiet night alone
If nothing is wrong
How come you’re not home

[Chorus]
And it’s almost 3AM
When you decide to show
You’re gonna tell me where you’ve been
Don’t spare me the details, I wanna know
What does he look like?
What does he talk like?
Thought you wanted to make this work
But you’re sending me mixed signals

[Verse 2]
With lowered emotion
You greet me and I’m overcome
‘Cause your body language is speaking in another tongue
First you tell me that you needed some excitement in your life
Then you grab the handle and turn the knife
Accusations of obsessive misbehaviour
Like we ain’t been down to hell and back
And made untrue
I thought that was you

[Chorus]
And it’s almost 3AM
When you decide to show
You’re gonna tell me where you’ve been
Don’t spare me details, I wanna know
What does he look like?
What does he talk like?
Thought you wanted to make this work
But you’re sending me mixed signals

[Bridge]
And in the dusk we fall apart
The sun’s got his elbow
In the rib cage of town
I’m breaking down

[Chorus]
And it’s almost 3AM
When you decide to show
You’re gonna tell me where you’ve been
Don’t sugarcoat it, girl, I want the blow-by-blow
What does he look like?
What does he talk like?
Thought you wanted to make this work
But you’re sending me mixed signals
Yeah, sending me mixed signals

[Outro]
Darling, darling believe me
Know that, no you don’t need me
Break up, you know it won’t please me
Sweetheart, let me down easy
Cut me loose, baby, don’t tease me
Oh Lord, let me down easy
Sending me mixed signals

[Verse 1]
It takes a certain kind of man with a certain reputation
To alleviate the cash from a whole entire nation
Take my loose change and build my own space station
(Just because you can, man)
Ain’t no refutin’ or disputin’ – I’m a modern Rasputin
Subcontract disputes to some brutes in Louboutin
Act highfalutin’ while my boys put the boots in
(They do the can-can)
(Spasibo)

[Chorus 1]
Party like a Russian, end of discussion
Dance like you’ve got concussion, oh
Put a doll inside a doll
Party like a Russian, disco seduction
Party like a Russian, oh
Have it like an oligarch

[Verse 2]
I’ve got Stoli and Bolly and Molly, so I’m jolly
And I’m always off my trolley, so I never say sorry
There’s a doll, inside a doll, inside a doll, inside a dolly
(Hello, Dolly)
I put a bank inside a car, inside a plane, inside a boat
It takes half the western world just to keep my ship afloat
And I never ever smile unless I’ve something to promote
I just won’t emote
(Spasibo)

[Chorus 2]
Party like a Russian, end of discussion
Dance like you’ve got concussion, oh
We’ve got soul and we’ve got gold
Party like a Russian, disco seduction
Party like a Russian, oh
Have it like an oligarch

[Bridge]
Raz, dva, tri, chetyre
We’re the Russian boys, we’re everywhere
There’s revolution in the air
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh

[Chorus 1]
Party like a Russian, end of discussion
Dance like you’ve got concussion, oh
Put a doll inside a doll
Party like a Russian, disco seduction
Party like a Russian, oh
Have it like an oligarch

[Verse 1]
Good evening, children of cultural abandon
You searched for a saviour, well here I am
And all the best ones are dying off so quickly
While I’m still here, enjoy me while you can

[Chorus]
Welcome to the Heavy Entertainment Show
The charisma’s non-negotiable
Welcome to the Heavy Entertainment Show
I’m about to strip and you’re my pole

We are so glorious
Why not leave your job and come on tour with us?
Before I drop dead and die

[Verse 2]
Good evening, lovers of quality entertainment
Good evening to the others that don’t know hit
Even you will leave here with a t-shirt and a programme
Got a house in LA, I’m still paying for it…

[Chorus]
Welcome to the Heavy Entertainment Show
It’s just the tip but no one will know
Welcome to the Heavy Entertainment Show
All the girls (Robbie!), the boys go (No!)
You are magnificent
Maybe come on stage and be a part of it
I said maybe, baby, baby oh

[Bridge]
Come leave the life you’re living
Show me the light you’re giving
I’ll give it all then a little bit more, oh-oh-woah

“He would sell his children
For a hit in Belgium
God knows what he’s done
For a number one”

[Chorus]
Welcome to the Heavy Entertainment Show
Where the more you see, the less you know
Welcome to the Heavy Entertainment Show
Where Eminem meets Barry Manilow

I am notorious
For making all the crowd sing the chorious
I just made up that word

[Bridge]
Come love the life I’m living
Bathe in the light I’m giving
“He’ll give it all and a little bit more”

[Chorus]
Welcome to the Heavy Entertainment Show
I’m a volcano that’s about to blow
Welcome to the Heavy Entertainment Show
This is how I’d like to say “Hello”

[Intro]
Out of the silence
Here to save us
International entertainment
Out of the silence
Here to save us
International entertainment

[Verse 1]
Silence in the courtyard
Silence in the streets
The biggest mouth in England
Is just about to speak
And what I’m gonna say is
I’m not scared of you
Wherever you wanna have it
Whatever you wanna do

[Pre-Chorus]
Drinking, fighting, smoking
I come alive
Laughing, hoping, provoking
I come alive
Rolling, rushing, speeding
I come alive
I am in love with that feeling

[Chorus]
I am alive
I am alive
I am alive
I am alive, alive, alive, alive, alive

[Verse 2]
Silence in the courtyard
Silence in the streets
The biggest mouth in the world
Is just about to speak
And what I want to say is
I won’t hide from you
I ran rings around you
You didn’t have a clue

[Pre-Chorus]
Drinking, fighting, smoking
I come alive
Laughing, hoping, provoking
I come alive
Rolling, rushing, speeding
I come alive
I am in love with that feeling

[Chorus]
I am alive
I am alive
I am alive
I am alive, alive, alive, alive, alive
I survived
Oh, oh, oh
I survived
Oh, oh, oh

[Outro]
Out of the silence
Here to save us
International entertainment
Out of the silence
Here to save us
International entertainment
Out of the silence
Here to save us

[Verse 1]
Hey now, what did I do wrong?
I’m only several words into this song
Yesterday, yes was the equation
Now today’s no, what’s the occasion
I used to be the bird that always flew
Did I sit on the fence because all I can think of is you

[Verse 2]
I’ve never been more confused
I look at the phone but it’s all bad news
When I check for the text like a neurotic chancer
The verb is a void ’cause no is the answer
I used to be the boy who played it cool
Then I sat on the fence and all I could think of is you

[Bridge]
Oh, did we enter the friend zone?
And oh, is there any way back?

[Verse 3]
I thought we had a strong connection
You said it had to be perfection
Please let me be the one to break that rule
I don’t know what went wrong
‘Cause I don’t have a clue
Like a knife and a fork and a big bowl of soup
And I sat on the fence and now all I can think of is you

[Outro]
Why, why, why, why, why, why

[Verse 1]
I like your style, I like your hair, I like your humour too
I like you here but you were there, send me your digits through
You’re like a ray of sunshine on an otherwise boring night
Send me your address over, I’ll Uber myself a ride

[Chorus]
Oh, do they call it a booty call?
‘Cause I’ve never been hip, chic or down with the kids
And oh, what are they being politically correct for?
Let’s call it a booty call, baby, if that’s what it is

[Verse 2]
I like your eyes, the way they smile, you’ve got that special brew
I been online all of the night trying to get a message to you
‘Cause you’re like a ray of sunshine on an otherwise lonely night
I’ll send a carriage over, it sounds like a good compromise

[Chorus]
Do they still call it a booty call?
‘Cause I’ve never been hip, chic or down with the kids
Oh, let’s take a break from this Punch and Judy talk
And call it a booty call, baby, ’cause that’s what it is

[Bridge]
B-double O-T-Y, why? ‘Cause I love it
B-double-O-T-Y ’cause I can
B-double-O-T-Y, you above it
B-double-O-T, why can’t you think like a man?

[Chorus]
Do they still call it a booty call?
‘Cause I’ve never been hip, chic or down with the kids
Oh, let’s take a break from this Punch and Judy talk
And call it a booty call, baby, ’cause that’s what it is
That’s what it is
That’s what it is

[Verse 1]
Ran away from silence to the fury
Hope I find someone there that could cure me
I went to the world
My weakness got stronger every day
Though my chequered history’s appalling
In the line of beauty I lay fallen
I found a girl
She’s my weakness, gets stronger every day
Every day

[Chorus]
I can’t promise I will love you for the rest of your life
But you know I’m gonna be there for the rest of mine
We pour our hearts into a box
Seal that box with chains and locks
And then we hide it
Don’t dare look inside it
In case the feeling shows
You could spend all your life with that damn box
Trying to keep it closed

[Verse 2]
Went around the world in 80 lovers
Don’t think really anyone recovered
Go see the world
Let your weakness get stronger every day
Every day

[Chorus]
I took photographs of Mars
Left my footprints on the Moon
I wanted the universe
Then they sent you
We pour our hearts into a box
Seal that box with chains and locks
And then we hide it
Don’t dare look inside it
In case the feeling shows
You could spend all your life with that damn box
Trying to keep it closed

[Instrumental bridge]

[Chorus]
We pour our hearts into a box
Seal that box with chains and locks
And then we hide it
Don’t dare look inside it
In case the feeling shows
We could spend all our lives with that damn box
Trying to keep it closed

[Verse 1]
Don’t show your true colours
Let them lie, follow someone else’s dream
One day I’ll look back at this and die
But you won’t know what it means
To never see me

[Chorus]
Did we sail you down river?
Do you run around all day avoiding mirrors?
Do you find comfort in the hate?
Is this abuse too late?
My heart’s just bleeding for you
And this is my fuck you to you

[Verse 2]
By the time you were into my blood
I was all of seventeen
You were the light of my life
And the darkness in-between
Whatever that means

[Chorus]
Did they sail you down river?
Do they give you stuff to keep your head together?
When your faith took a call
What are you keeping it real for?
Dumb hearts lie bleeding for you
So this is a fuck you

[Bridge]
I used to see you in my dreams
But I could not compete
Then you taught me the value
Of never losing sleep
How you sink like a home
Putting children on the street

[Outro]
Is it anger or sympathy
How I sail you down river?
But you must feel some disdain then I’ll forgive you
All day long you are night
But I am vaguely right
My heart’s just bleeding for you
This is a fuck you
This is my fuck you to you

[Verse 1]
When I was a young boy
I was frightened of the teachers
I didn’t learn nothing
‘Cause I couldn’t understand it
I’m a little too much
Then not enough
And all the kids were violent
‘Cause the town was rough

[Pre-Chorus]
Hey, babies
It’s the Eighties
Electric blue
Pure shock
Cocaine in the bathroom
You like my shoes?
I like your top
Oh, let’s rock

[Chorus]
We’re with Andy Warhol at Studio 54
That’s right, ah ha, oh yeah
When you come down
You’ve gotta ride the white horse
That’s right, ah ha, oh yeah
Could go bananas, ah ha
I’m off this planet, ah ha
Embrace the madness, ah ha
Ha ha, yeah

[Verse 2]
I always felt different
The world felt strange
And if you’re gonna play out
Then you’ve got to be brave
Everyone was angry
‘Cause no one had nothing
And we hoped for the best
Maybe come to something

[Pre-Chorus]
Hey, babies
It’s the Eighties
Success
Lighten up
Poppers on the dance floor
You like my shoes?
I like your Swatch
Oh, let’s rock

[Chorus]
We’re with Andy Warhol at Studio 54
That’s right, ah ha, oh yeah
The boys are with the boys
And the girls are naked on the floor
That’s right, ah ha, oh yeah
Could go bananas, ah ha
I’m off this planet, ah ha
Embrace the madness, ah ha
Ha, ha, yeah
Could go bananas, ah ha
I’m off this planet, ah ha
Embrace the madness, ah ha
Ha, ha, yeah

[Bridge]
Welcome to our club
The future has arrived
Only the chosen are allowed inside
Bowie’s at the door
Tom, Tom Ford
With the best of the best
And we’re looking so fresh
And everybody’s dressed for success
Oh yes

[Pre-Chorus]
Hey, babies
It’s the Eighties
Electric blue
Pure shock
Cocaine in the bathroom
You like my shoes?
I like your top
Oh, let’s rock

[Chorus]
We’re with Andy Warhol at Studio 54
That’s right, ah ha, oh yeah
When you come down
You’ve gotta ride the white horse
That’s right, ah ha, oh yeah
We’re with Andy Warhol at Studio 54
That’s right, ah ha, oh yeah
The boys are with the boys
And the girls are naked on the floor
That’s right, ah ha, oh yeah

Could go bananas, ah ha
I’m off this planet, ah ha
Embrace the madness, ah ha
Ah ah yeah
Could go bananas, ah ha
I’m off this planet, ah ha
Embrace the madness, ah ha
Ah ah yeah

[Verse 1]
Hey, you, how is your life?
Has something in you died?
Please don’t think me rude
I’ve got a good excuse

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, ’cause I’ve been ticking like a time bomb
I’ve bit my tongue so much it’s all gone
My hands are tied and I’ve become so numb
So numb, so numb, so numb

[Chorus]
Sending out a message to the corners of the universe
A mayday from mother earth
The situation’s so much worse than I thought
Can you hear the boy stood in the middle of the Milky Way
From ten billion miles away?
This is not where I belong
Never was, take me home

[Verse 2]
Come dance while we still can
‘Cause the plans they have for man ain’t no good
I tried to warn you all, you all, you all

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause I’ve been ticking like a time bomb
I’ve bit my tongue so much it’s all gone
My hands are tied and I’ve become so numb
So numb, so numb, so numb

[Chorus]
Sending out a message to the corners of the universe
A mayday from mother earth
The situation’s so much worse than I thought
Can you hear the boy stood in the middle of the Milky Way
From ten billion miles away?
This is not where I belong
Never was, take me home

[Instrumental bridge]

[Chorus]
Sending out a message to the corners of the universe
A mayday from mother earth
The situation’s so much worse than I thought
Can you hear the boy stood in the middle of the Milky Way
From ten billion miles away?
This is not where I belong
Never was, take me home

[Verse 1]
Your mother’s downtown and there’s no one at the station
Steal your daddy’s money and pick a destination
Run it wild, run it wild
Take the money and run it wild
It’s another chance for another generation
When you kicked up your heels, you picked a vocation
Run it wild, run it wild
Like we used to, run it wild

[Chorus]
When you were running wild
When you let your love run wild
When you let your love run wild
My run it wild, run it wild, run it wild, baby
Run it wild
Go out and run it wild

[Verse 2]
Run to, run to the ocean
Run to the ocean
Run away as fast as you can from here
It’s not enough
Run to, run to the ocean
Run to the ocean
Run away as fast as you can from here
While you’re still young

[Chorus]
When you were running wild
When you let your love run wild
When you let your love run wild
My run it wild, run it wild, run it wild, baby
Run it wild
I’m losing hope in my heart
That the end is better than the start
We get hung up on the past, nothing lasts
You’ll get lost, you’ll get caught
They’ll tell you everything’s your fault
But you’re only a child for a while, and you got style
Go out and run it wild

[Bridge]
Julia
Julia
Are we gonna crumble under your weight?
Lord, I hope so
Julia
Julia
Are we gonna crumble under your weight?
Lord, I hope so

[Chorus]
You would run it wild
When you let your love run wild
When you let your love run wild
My run it wild, run it wild, run it wild, baby
Run it wild
I’m losing hope in my heart
That the end is better than the start
You get hung up on the past, nothing lasts
You’ll get lost, you’ll get caught
They’ll tell you everything’s your fault
But you’re only a child for a while, and you got style
Go out and run it wild

[Intro: Robbie Williams, Big Narstie]
Base, b-b-b-base
Base, base
Hello, hi
How you mean?

[Verse 1: Robbie Williams]
Bang, bang, gonna do it big
I was born to die but I chose to live
Bang, bang, all in your face
Walk on in like I own the place
Bang, bang, no dignity
I’m gonna lay you out like 1, 2, 3
Bang, bang, I’ll tell you boy
It’s gonna be a long summer

[Hook: Big Narstie, Robbie Williams]
(How you mean?) From the left to the right
(Shout!) To the people down below
(Yo) Are you having a good time, or do you just not know?
(Turn up, throw it up) From the front to the back
Sing along with me
Everybody’s coming just a little temperamental
Everybody in the place go mental

[Chorus: Atlantic Horns, Big Narstie]
The world’s going crazy, can’t stop it
They’ve been pulling me, squeezing me, feeling me and I love it
Go mental
The world’s in my head and it’s spinning
The rhythm of life is unkind but I keep grinning
Go mental

[Verse 2: Robbie Williams]
Bang, bang, I shot you dead
Put you down and went to bed
Bang, bang, all over town
I cocked a verse and then I shot you down
Bang, bang, no dignity
I’ll be a playful beast and you’re history
Bang, bang, I’ll get you boy
It’s gonna be the longest summer

[Chorus: Atlantic Horns]
The world’s going crazy, can’t stop it
They’ve been pulling me, squeezing me, feeling me and I love it
The world’s in my head and it’s spinning
The rhythm of life is unkind but I keep grinning

[Verse 3: Big Narstie]
Lyrical ésta
Hola, cómo estás, siesta
Majorly gassed like R Kelly wearing pink in fiesta
I will open ’em all up like Iniesta
Man is gonna turn up (Base)
Big zaggers, man is gonna burn one (Base)
Hello, hi, cuz I’m giving them vibes
Brit-exit, peak times
BD-BDL

Mandem, mandem
Raise some fucking hell (Base Defence League)

[Chorus: Atlantic Horns, Robbie Williams]
The world’s going crazy, can’t stop it
They’ve been pulling me, squeezing me, feeling me and I love it
Go mental
The world’s in my head and it’s spinning
The rhythm of life is unkind but I keep grinning
Everybody’s coming just a little temperamental
Everybody in the place go mental

[Verse 1]
I’ll tell you all a story ’bout a man who isn’t here
Who had a pocket full of chemicals, some cigarettes and beer
I went out to Ibiza running from the pouring rain
I drank a poco loco and I’d never be the same
I met up with some boys, they called themselves the diamond dogs
They were either on the dancefloor or dealing in the bogs
And a reformed gangster got me and he said that he found God
He looked me in the eyes and he started speaking tongues

[Chorus]
Speaking tongues, speaking tongues
Everybody on the island speaking tongues
Speaking tongues, speaking tongues
Everybody on the island speaking tongues

[Post-Chorus]
Everybody’s saying take that, take that
And I’m about to do exactly that-ah
And I’m the cheeky fucker at the back-ah
Before a disco biscuit disco-nap

[Verse 2]
In Balearic sunshine I went out for a swim
But I heard they’d sent a posse to the rocks to do me in
But I met some friends with faces who were pretty mighty men
They told me «if they come for you my brother
We will go for them»
I whistled down a taxi just to save us all some grief
The taxi man had weed and pills he’d bought from the police
He’d seen me on the TV, said he didn’t like my songs
It’s the only sense he made ’cause then he started speaking tongues

[Chorus]
Speaking tongues, speaking tongues
Everybody on the island speaking tongues
Speaking tongues, speaking tongues
Everybody on the island speaking tongues

[Post-Chorus]
Ahhh, Ahhh
Everybody’s saying take that, take that
And I’m about to do exactly that-ah
And I’m the cheeky fucker at the back-ah
Before a disco biscuit disco-nap

[Verse 3]
I met a girl from Preston who wanted sex right there and then
She led me to a hotel but they wouldn’t let me in
I begged and I pleaded with the man who owned the place (come on, man!)
Eventually he’d had enough and punched me in the face
I made a promise to that gangster
That I would not commit to another night on the white or I’d have to deal with it
But I had a poco loco, mescaline coming on strong
I really couldn’t help it, man, I started speaking tongues

[Bridge]
Speaking tongues, speaking tongues
Everybody on the island speaking tongues
Speaking tongues, speaking tongues
Everybody on the island speaking tongues

[Chorus]
Speaking tongues, speaking tongues
Everybody on the island speaking tongues
Speaking tongues, speaking tongues
Everybody on the island speaking tongues

[Post-Chorus]
Everybody’s saying take that, take that
And I’m about to do exactly that-ah
And I’m the cheeky fucker at the back-ah
Before a disco biscuit disco-nap
Everybody’s saying take that take, that
And I’m about to do exactly that-ah
And I’m the cheeky fucker at the back-ah
Before a disco biscuit disco-nap

[Verse 1]
It’s the end of the movie and your story’s been told
No one’s unhappy and no one got old
And your heart doesn’t break and it won’t weigh a ton
And life is just a sitcom and that’s not the atom bomb
You’re a soul survivor ’cause your soul survived
The first to understand it, the last one alive
And you know we live forever ’cause that’s just how it goes
‘Til we all remember what everybody knows

[Pre-Chorus]
Just keep your eyes on the highway
Just keep your eyes on the highway
Eyes on the highway
Just keep your eyes on the highway

[Chorus]
You, me, heading down the road now
In front of seven billion souls now
Just keep your eyes on the highway
Just keep your eyes on the highway
I know something doesn’t feel right
When you’re blinded by the headlights
Just keep your eyes on the highway
Just keep your eyes on the highway

[Verse 2]
You would die for each other and you probably will
For every lover a lover, if looks could kill
I would die in your arms ’cause that’s the way to go
And I won’t disappoint you ’cause you will never know
For every second that I wasted, every secret that I’ve told
Every lie I’ve ever whispered to everyone involved
I couldn’t be more sorry about how I got things done
I just wanna be John Travolta to Olivia Newton-John

[Chorus]
You, me, heading down the road now
In front of seven billion souls now
Just keep your eyes on the highway
Just keep your eyes on the highway
I know something doesn’t feel right
When you’re blinded by the headlights
Just keep your eyes on the highway
Just keep your eyes on the highway

[Pre-Chorus]
Just keep your eyes on the highway
Just keep your eyes on the highway
Eyes on the highway
Just keep your eyes on the highway

[Chorus]
You, me, heading down the road now
In front of seven billion souls now
Just keep your eyes on the highway
Just keep your eyes on the highway
I know something doesn’t feel right
When you’re blinded by the headlights
Just keep your eyes on the highway
Just keep your eyes on the highway

[Verse 1]
Die, I don’t die
Love, be adored
At the train station
Waited for truth
Holy cow
Where are you?

[Pre-Chorus]
Die, die, we don’t die
Love, wanna be adored
My, my, me oh my
Everybody get up

[Chorus]
It was like the nineties
We were so wasted
At the train station
Waiting for truth
We’re so naughty
High and mighty
We don’t need a weekend
And we don’t need you

[Verse 2]
Die, die, die, die
I don’t die, die, die, die
Love, love, love, love
I think you should
We’re so pragmatic
It’s like fucking magic
I’m so dramatic
But so are you
[Pre-Chorus]
Die, die, we don’t die
Love, wanna be adored
My, my, me oh my
Bow down, skin up

[Chorus]
It was like the nineties
We were so wasted
At the train station
Waiting for truth
We’re so naughty
High and mighty
We don’t need a weekend
And we don’t need you

[Bridge]
Take me to the water
I’m walking like Bambi
You might not understand me
But I know you
Leave me to the water
You talking like Gandhi
You might not understand me
But I get you

[Chorus]
It was like the nineties
We were so wasted
At the train station
Waiting for truth
We’re so naughty
High and mighty
We don’t need a weekend
And we don’t need you

[Bridge]
Take me to the water
I’m walking like Bambi
You might not understand me
But I know you
Leave me to the water
You talking like Gandhi
You might not understand me
But I get you

[Chorus]
It was like the nineties
We were so wasted
At the train station
Waiting for truth
We’re so naughty
High and mighty
We don’t need a weekend
And we don’t need you

[Outro]
It was a long, long time ago
And how we did it I’ll never know
So come outside and get involved
It’s not a problem, problem solved

Not your normal city girl
Getting caught up with the world
Dressed up for the city lights
She’s going home but not tonight
Yes I’ve known her for a while
She kinda got used to my smile
Its gone in and out of style
And everybody knows it

We’ve been holding back
And there’s some history to that
But we’re on fire, fire, fire

Do it, do it you crazy angel
So in tune with magic
Don’t be a stranger
Coz I know that you know
When we get together
There’s never been a better time
Never been a better time than now

Guess I found some courage now
Just to tell you what goes down
In my mind when you’re not around
I hope you feel the same way too
Got a photograph of you
I always stop when I flick through
Man it’s such a lovely view
I don’t want to spoil it
We’ve been holding back
It’s such an unnatural act
But we’re on fire, fire, fire

Do it, do it you crazy angel
So in tune with magic
Don’t be a stranger
Coz I know that you know
When we get together
There’s never been a better time
Never been a better time

Do it, do it, you crazy angel
So in tune with magic
You could be my savior
Coz I know that you know
When we get together
There’s never been a better time
Never been a better time than now

Why do you have to leave me now
You don’t have to leave me
Why do you have to leave me now
You don’t have to leave me

Why do you have to leave me now
You don’t have to leave me
Why do you have to leave me now
You don’t have to leave me
Love me, love me you crazy angel
So in tune with magic
Don’t be a stranger
Coz I know that you know
When we get together
There’s never been a better time
There’s never been a better time

Love me, love me, you crazy angel
So in tune with magic
Don’t be a stranger
Coz I know that you know
We’ll be here together
There’s never been a better time
There’s never been a better time than now

[Intro]
She’s a working girl, in a modern world
She’s a working girl, in a modern world

[Verse 1]
Tumble out of bed and stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
And yawn and stretch and try to come alive
Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumping
Out on the street the traffic starts jumping
And folks like me on the job from nine to five

[Chorus]
Working nine to five, what a way to make a living
Barely getting by, it’s all taking and no giving
They just use your mind and they never give you credit
It’s enough to drive you crazy if you let it
Nine to five, for service and devotion
You would think that I would deserve a fair promotion
Wanna move ahead but the boss won’t seem to let me
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me

[Verse 2]
They let you dream just to watch ’em shatter
You’re just another step on the boss man’s ladder
But you got dreams he’ll never take away
You’re in the same boat with a lot of your friends
Waitin’ for the day your ship will come in
Then the tide’s goin’ to turn and it’s all gonna go your way

[Chorus]
Working nine to five, what a way to make a living
Barely getting by, it’s all taking and no giving
They just use your mind and they never give you credit
It’s enough to drive you crazy if you let it
Nine to five and they got you where they want you
There’s a better life and you think about it don’t you
It’s a rich man’s game, no matter what they call it
And you spend your life puttin’ money in their wallet

[Bridge]
She’s a working girl, in a modern world
She’s a working girl, in a modern world
She’s a working girl, in a modern world
She’s a working girl

[Chorus]
Working nine to five what a way to make a living
Barely getting by it’s all taking and no giving
They just use your mind and they never give you credit
It’s enough to drive you crazy if you let it
Nine to five and they got you where they want you
There’s a better life and you think about it don’t you
It’s a rich man’s game no matter what they call it
And you spend your life puttin’ money in their wallet

[Verse 1]
She’s glamorous and ridiculous
Ivy league but one of us
And she made me drop the knife, the knife, the knife
I thought I’d never let it go, go, go
I’m gonna love her all my life, life, life
Till I die and she gets old, older

[Chorus]
And boy she knows
I’m a tornado
But she won’t let go
‘Cause she’s in every single city light
Seeking sleeping satellites of hope
Every single city light
Seeking sleeping satellites of
Hope brings heartache
When the Lord has forsaken me
When death’s in my eyes
She is every single city light
Seeking sleeping satellites of hope

[Verse 2]
I’m bueno para nada
An addict’s such a hot mess
She holds me in the night, the night, the night
Never lets me go, go, go
I’ve loved her all my life, life, life
Even when I didn’t know, know her

[Chorus]
And boy she knows
I’m a tornado
But she won’t let go
‘Cause she’s in every single city light
Seeking sleeping satellites of hope
Every single city light
Seeking sleeping satellites of
Hope brings heartache
When the Lord has forsaken me
When death’s in my eyes
She is every single city light
Seeking sleeping satellites of hope
Every single city light
Seeking sleeping satellites of hope

[Bridge]
So what have we become
Now we’re so ashamed of everything we’ve done
Raised on strange love
We were never ever good enough
From a nowhere garden
In a nowhere city
You will see our trail
From here to Mars
From here to Mars
Come on

[Chorus]
But you were sent to me
Hope breaks heartache
When the Lord has forsaken me
When death’s in my eyes
She is every single city light
Seeking sleeping satellites of hope

God bless our Robbie
He is king of song
He can swing like a bastard
And can rock all night long
Yes he went to rehab
Drugs and drink took him low
But would still make Rudebox
And gave rap a go
But when all is considered
He still rules the throne

God bless our Robbie
He can swing both ways
He is totally global
Except in the U.S. of A
One day he will be knighted
And his work will be done
He’ll stand proud and fearless
His face forever young
God bless our Robbie
He is so well-hung

[Verse 1]
When karma reaches you, I wanna be there just in case it needs help
You made me be so cruel to myself
Love of power or the power of love
You need help
When karma reaches you, I wanna be there to catch that fall
Get down beside you and watch you crawl
How does it feel to be alone
Down there?

[Chorus]
When you fall apart again
It won’t test my heart

[Verse 2]
If I told you my secrets, you’ll never look at me the same way
Well I guess you’re right, some things I can’t change
When karma reaches you, I wanna be there just in case
It needs help

[Chorus]
I won’t fall apart again
I don’t test my heart

[Post-Chorus]
Is there any wonder
With this feeling inside us?
Was it sent for the hunger?
Was it meant to divide us?
Into the silence
Into the silence
Into the silence
Into the silence

[Verse 3]
When karma reaches you, I wanna be there to catch that fall
Get down beside you and watch you crawl
How does it feel to be alone
Down there?

[Chorus]
Don’t fall apart again
Don’t test my heart

[Post-Chorus]
Is there any wonder
With this feeling inside us?
Was it sent for the hunger?
Was it meant to divide us?
Into the silence
Into the silence
Into the silence
Into the silence

[Verse 1]
I walk around these empty streets
They say there’s nothing left of me
I say there’s no one here for you
Down in the land, the land of the blind
The one-eyed king, he stole my mind
And I let him

[Pre-Chorus]
Everything I like’s illegal, seductive
Addictive, immoral, corrosive, destructive
But I’ve got kind words in my heart, it’s a passion
Your fashion, in fashion

[Chorus]
Tonight I’m hunting for you
Tonight I’m hunting for you
Tonight I’m hunting for you
Tonight I’m hunting for you
Tonight I’m hunting for

[Verse 2]
The stone is set, the die is cast
I am the wreckage of my past
And I am not afraid to ask
I’ll send away my sanity
Just to find some company
My darlin’

[Pre-Chorus]
Everything I like’s illegal, seductive
Addictive, immoral, corrosive, destructive
Your addiction to danger makes me no stranger
It’s fashion, old fashion

[Chorus]
Tonight I’m hunting for you (Ooh)
Tonight I’m hunting for you (Ooh)
Tonight I’m hunting for you (Ooh)
Tonight I’m hunting for you (Ooh)
Tonight I’m hunting for

[Bridge]
You can’t waste away in fashion
When you chase the daylight home
Tonight I’m hunting for you

[Outro]
You can’t waste away in fashion
(Tonight I’m hunting for you
Tonight I’m hunting for you)
When you chase the daylight home
(Tonight I’m hunting for you
Tonight I’m hunting for you
Tonight I’m hunting for you
Tonight I’m hunting for you
Tonight I’m hunting for)

[Verse 1]
I’m psychedelic, unstable
They want a role model, but I just puked a rainbow
It gets so lonely; I tried to end it all
Jumped off my wallet, but I landed in my swimming pool

[Pre-Chorus]
And I think so hard, «Why don’t you love me?»
Yeah, yeah, our hands in the air

[Chorus]
I am in my private jet, I am a limousine
I got my test back baby, and I’m super clean
Get excited, I just want people to like me
I’m in the land of the brave, in the home of the free
I got a pretty, young thing right on top of me
Come inside, girl, some people just ain’t gon’ like it

[Verse 2]
I can’t dance, I can’t sing
But I made it this far, you’d think they’d be happy for me
And I’m so loaded, I guess I could stop
‘Cause absolutely nothing about me loves pissing you off

[Pre-Chorus]
And I cry all night, «Why don’t you love me?»
Yeah, yeah, our hands in the air

[Chorus]
I am in my private jet, I am a limousine
I got my test back baby, and I’m super clean
Get excited, I just want people to like me
I’m in the land of the brave, in the home of the free
I got a pretty, young thing right on top of me
Come inside, girl, some people just ain’t gon’ like it

[Bridge]
They gave my music to a man who played my music to a scene
They gave my music to some people who say what they mean
Call me psychic, some people just ain’t gon’ like it
They gave my music to a man who played my music to a scene
They gave my music to some people who say what they mean
Call me psychic, some people just ain’t gon’ like it

[Chorus]
I am in my private jet, I am a limousine
I got my test back baby, and I’m super clean
Get excited, I just want people to like me
I’m in the land of the brave, in the home of the free
I got a pretty, young thing right on top of me
Kiera Knightly, I just want people to like me

You won’t get over me, it’s impossible to do
I’ll be on the TV again and on the radio soon
My face will be 30 foot high on the back of that bus
And on my poster they’ll spray «knob head» at the back of Toys ‘R’ Us

Inside it hurts ’cause you know it’s true
Only a fool wouldn’t fall in love with you
And I wrote this song not to mess with your head
But to get you out of mine
‘Cause I remember what you says in that hotel room

And babe I took these songs and started singing them to people
Some folks hate them and others think I’m evil
But some of them quite like me, they’ve taken me to heart
Radio and television is keeping us apart

Reality killed the video star
‘Cause you’re getting married and I’m not involved
Wherever you are
With whoever he is
You’ll be in my heart
Spend this life in bliss

Remember when I came ’round and I ruined your mother’s carpet?
‘Cause I was always dancing and she didn’t have the heart to stop it
‘Cause she could see you smiling at the boy who came to play
And if that doesn’t break your heart then there’s nothing I can say
I’m sorry baby if I’ve taken this too far
Look at the tears falling down my guitar
I apologize to him but you know I’ve always been
A selfish bastard

My mother always loved you ’cause she could see what I saw
She always wanted you to be her daughter-in-law
I’m sorry

[Verse 1]
She’s old as she wants to be
And is cold as ice
And she can walk like a millipede right out of your life
It’ll be thanks for the memory
The ghost in her machine
If you’ve tested her twice then you’ll know what I mean
‘Cause she’s so cool

[Chorus]
She’s moving into your mind alright and out of your life
Leave you lovesick and lonely
She’s probably wearing your shirts and not waving bye-bye (Bye-bye)
Isn’t she lovely?

[Verse 2]
She ain’t taking no shit
She never did
Nobody’s ever beat her, since she left the house for dead
And she’s better than you, even better than me
And I guess I’ll never have her for as long as I can breathe
She’s so cool

[Chorus]
She’s moving into your mind alright and out of your life
Leave you lovesick and lonely
She’s probably wearing your shirts and not waving bye-bye (Bye-bye)
Isn’t she lovely?

[Bridge]
I cannot go there, I know it
I’d just be wasting her time
I cannot go there, I know it
I’d just be wasting her time
She used to date a friend of mine

[Chorus]
She’s moving into your mind alright and out of your life
Leave you lovesick and lonely
She’s probably wearing your shirts and not waving bye-bye (Bye-bye)
Isn’t she lovely?
She’s moving into your mind alright and out of your life
Leave you lovesick and lonely
She’s probably wearing your shirts and not waving bye-bye (Bye-bye)
Isn’t she lovely?

[Outro]
And it feels just like the 80’s
Don’t it feel like the 80’s to you?
Feels just like the 80’s
Seems just like the latest move
Don’t it feel just like the 80’s?
She’s just like the 80’s to me

[Verse 1]
I’m going out again tonight
To be with people I don’t like
In places you will only see
In documentaries on TV
With education incomplete
Behind the door my mother weeps
A silent disco in the street
The message ends and then repeats

[Chorus]
As I’m staring at the crowd, I recognize the overkill
With an antidote for all the fun
A world of pain without the thrill
Complimentary perma-frown
And tickets back to Averageville
The underhanded ordinary, have overdone the underkill

[Verse 2]
With obsolete technology
We’re building bombs internally
Full of non-expectancy
Half day closing usually
Another day that’s every day
Identical in every way
A parasite that needs a host
Well it’s my mind I’ll miss the most

[Chorus]
As I’m staring at the crowd, I recognize the overkill
With an antidote for all the fun
A world of pain without the thrill
Complimentary perma-frown
And tickets back to Averageville
The underhanded ordinary, have overdone the underkill

[Bridge]
Where boredom is the norm
I can’t take it anymore
Until the day we’re born
We just take it on the chin

[Chorus]
As I’m staring at the crowd, I recognize the overkill
With an antidote for all the fun
A world of pain without the thrill
Complimentary perma-frown
And tickets back to Averageville
The underhanded ordinary, have overdone the underkill

[Outro]
As I’m staring at the crowd, I recognize the underkill

[Verse 1]
So here’s a little piece of my history
I’d already lost my v-virginity
And I get it back and lost it all over again
And again and again and again
I’m coming up, I feel it down my back
I gave my mama a, a heart attack
She knew I was lost and she hoped
I would find my way back, my way back, my way back
But this is power

[Chorus]
That was the summer of no fucks given
Live fast, die young, stay out of prison
When you’re high with your friends
And you’re having a love attack-tack-tack-tack-tack
A love attack-tack-tack-tack-tack
That was the summer of no fucks given
To hell and back, where are your children?
They’re all high with their friends
And they’re having a love attack-tack-tack-tack-tack
A love attack-tack-tack-tack-tack, alright

[Verse 2]
So goodbye dear dignity
You never meant that much to me
I’d get it back and lost it all over again
And again and again and again
We get high ’cause we’re broken people
But when you’re loaded, everybody’s equal
We are not evil, power to the people
Power to the people, power to the people
Give me strength

[Chorus]
That was the summer of no fucks given
Live fast, die young, stay out of prison
When you’re high with your friends
And you’re having a love attack-tack-tack-tack-tack
A love attack-tack-tack-tack-tack
That was the summer of no fucks given
To hell and back, where are your children?
They’re all high with their friends
And they’re having a love attack-tack-tack-tack-tack
A love attack-tack-tack-tack-tack, alright

[Bridge]
Give me, give me back, give me back that love attack
Give me, give me back, give me back that love attack
Give me, give me back, give me back that love attack
Give me, give me back, give me back that love attack
Give me, give me back, give me back that love attack
Give me, give me back, give me back that love attack

[Chorus]
That was the summer of no fucks given
Live fast, die young, stay out of prison
When you’re high with your friends
And you’re having a love attack-tack-tack-tack-tack
A love attack-tack-tack-tack-tack
That was the summer of no fucks given
To hell and back, where are your children?
They’re all high with their friends
And they’re having a love attack-tack-tack-tack-tack
A love attack-tack-tack-tack-tack, alright

[Verse 1]
All my life
Been indestructible, I’ve never know why
Oh, I tell you no lies
Indestructible, I’m never gon’ die
My dignity was taken from me
And I cried, I cried
Been beaten up and brought down to my knees
But survived, I survived

[Chorus]
Indestructible all of my life
Indestructible all of my life

[Verse 2]
Tell me I’m wrong
I’m indestructible, I’ll come to no harm
Oh, tell me ’bout you
You’re indestructible, but fragile, too
I’ve only been what I wanted to be
What’s the crime? What’s the crime?
Did my best, didn’t always succeed
But I tried, I tried

[Chorus]
Indestructible all of my life
Indestructible all of my life
[Bridge]
Undefeated, defeated by nothing
Undefeated, running and running
Undefeated, still, I keep coming

[Chorus]
Indestructible all of my life
Indestructible all of my life
Indestructible, I don’t know why
Indestructible, I don’t know why

[Intro]
I close my eyes

[Verse 1]
All my life
Been indestructible, I’ve never know why
Oh, I tell you no lies
Indestructible, I’m never gon’ die
My dignity was taken from me
And I cried, I cried
Been beaten up and brought down to my knees
But survived, I survived

[Pre-Chorus]
Undefeated, defeated by nothing
Undefeated, running and running
Undefeated, but still, I keep coming

[Chorus]
Indestructible all of my life
Indestructible all of my life

[Interlude]
I close my eyes

[Verse 2]
Tell me I’m wrong
I’m indestructible, I’ll come to no harm
Oh, tell me ’bout you
You’re indestructible, but fragile, too
I’ve only been what I wanted to be
What’s the crime? What’s the crime?
Did my best, didn’t always succeed
But I tried, I tried
[Pre-Chorus]
Undefeated, defeated by nothing
Undefeated, running and running
Undefeated, but still, I keep coming

[Chorus]
Indestructible all of my life
Indestructible all of my life

[Bridge]
I close my eyes in search of something sacred
I end up chasing my own shadow in the dark
And all the times I thought I wouldn’t make it
I couldn’t take it, but it was always in my heart
In my heart

[Chorus]
Indestructible all of my life
Indestructible all of my life
Indestructible, I don’t know why
Indestructible all of my life
Indestructible, I don’t know why

[Intro]
I didn’t know his name, I didn’t know his name
I didn’t know his name, I didn’t know his name
I didn’t know his name
He had a long chain on, he had a long chain on
He had a long chain on, he had a long chain on
He had a long chain on

[Verse 1]
Here comes the sunrise
In bed with red eyes
She left a 4-letter warning
At 4 in the morning
Already, the day’s gone
Bye bye, baby, so long
She left a 4-letter warning
At 4 in the morning

[Pre-Chorus]
And I don’t rock right no more
And you need to act right, be right, calm down

[Chorus]
Baby, come on
Baby, come on
Come on
We’re all good people, all good people
Come on
Baby, come on
Baby, come on
We’re all good people, all good people
[Verse 2]
She holds the power
I, I am nothing
When I said I was leaving
She could tell I was bluffing

[Pre-Chorus]
And I don’t rock right no more
And you need to act right, be right, calm down

[Chorus]
Baby, come on
Baby, come on
Come on
We’re all good people, all good people
Come on
Baby, come on
Come on
We’re all good people, all good people

[Bridge]
I didn’t know his name, I didn’t know his name
I didn’t know his name, I didn’t know his name
I didn’t know his name

[Chorus]
We’re all good people
Come on
Come on
Baby, come on
We’re all good people, all good people
Come on
Baby, come on
Come on
We’re all good people, all good people

[Outro]
People, people, people, people, people, people

[Verse 1]
I’ve decided I don’t wanna die, it’s not what I wanna do
I don’t know what I wanna do, but I don’t wanna die
I’ve been fighting for a cause of some sort
I do not know what it is
But I know that I have to be righteous
If I need to get to the other side of where I’m going
Wherever that was at the beginning
It’s now not the same, it’s different
I’ve been searching for a long, long time
Come from a long, long line of searchers
Searching for whatever it is

[Pre-Chorus]
I’ve got to keep on going
Got to keep on being stronger
Got to believe there’s something for me
On the other side to touch
What happens when we die, man?
Where the hell do we go?
Ever I thought I know, I do not know
Why do I need to know

[Chorus]
What was I born with? Nothing
Then we all go back to nothing
While I’m here, I’m taking something
Dirty, rotten, good-for-nothing
What was I born with? Nothing
Then we all go back to nothing
Taking shit, but taking something
Dirty, rotten, good-for-nothing
[Verse 2]
So where do I go?
What do I say when I get there
To the people that I will meet
Do I say «Hello» or do I say «Hey»?
Will they respond with kindness?
Or will they have some of their own shit going on
That I will take as being my fault

[Pre-Chorus]
Deep, deep thoughts that take up all my time, oh my
Deep, deep thoughts make me angry, angry
Makes me wanna fight, makes me wanna kill somebody
Not, not, not literally, well, well, well, well kinda

[Chorus]
What was I born with? Nothing
Then we all go back to nothing
While I’m here, I’m taking something
Dirty, rotten, good-for-nothing
What was I born with? Nothing
Then we all go back to nothing
Taking shit, but taking something
Dirty, rotten, good-for-nothing

[Bridge]
Big, big balls, you need
Big, big balls, you need
Big, big, big, big, big, big balls, you need
Big, big balls, you need
Big, big balls, you need
Big, big, big, big, big, big balls
[Chorus]
What was I born with? Nothing
Then we all go back to nothing
While I’m here, I’m taking something
Dirty, rotten, good-for-nothing
What was I born with? Nothing
Then we all go back to nothing
Taking shit, but taking something
Dirty, rotten, good-for-nothing
What was I born with? Nothing
Then we all go back to nothing
While I’m here, I’m taking something
Dirty, rotten, good-for-nothing
What was I born with? Nothing
Then we all go back to nothing
Taking shit, but taking something
Dirty, rotten, good-for-nothing

[Outro]
Take the world for a ride
If there’s a riot inside your mind
(Dirty, rotten, good-for-nothing)
Let’s take the world for a ride
If there’s a riot inside your mind
(Dirty, rotten, good-for-nothing)

[Verse 1]
Are we disco dancing?
Or throwing shapes in an empty space?
All eyes on me, here we go now
When I’m done dancing with myself
I wanna move with you
Do you want to, too?
Is there something better (Something better, something better)
Than you? No
There’s nothing better (Nothing better, nothing better)
Than you

[Pre-Chorus]
Never gonna lose that wonder, fall under your control
Go out and paint the world, Make it gold

[Chorus]
With tears in my eyes, a love in my soul
I feel like starting something
The pain, it subsides the minute I go
I feel like starting something gold
La-la-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la
I feel like starting something gold (La-la-la)
La-la-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la
Don’t you feel like starting something?

[Verse 2]
Are you really real or a character from a film
That I saw last year?
The camera’s focusing on you
I should be focusing on me, it will be better

[Pre-Chorus]
Never gonna lose that wonder, fall under your control
Go out and get the girl and paint her gold

[Chorus]
With tears in my eyes, a love in my soul
I feel like starting something
The pain, it subsides the minute I go
I feel like starting something gold
La-la-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la
I feel like starting something gold (La-la-la)
La-la-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la
Don’t you feel like starting something?

[Bridge]
We all get lost on our way to the dream
But we have to believe we’re going somewhere better
Somewhere gold
Don’t lose that wonder, fall under your control
Go out and paint the world and make it gold

[Chorus]
I feel like starting something
The pain, it subsides the minute I go
I feel like starting something gold
La-la-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la (Something gold)
I feel like starting something gold (La-la-la)
La-la-la, la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la (Something gold)
I feel like starting something gold

[Outro]
I feel like starting something gold

[Verse 1]
You can’t do it, you’re not good enough (Enough)
Don’t be stupid, you’re not one of us (Of us)

[Pre-Chorus]
You look, but nothing’s there
But no one knows and no one cares
And they’re all right and you were wrong
And you don’t know all the words to their song

[Chorus]
There’ll be wave after wave of emotion, but none of them love
The impossible must be
When you run down the road less traveled and stare at the sun
The impossible must be
God, give me grace under pressure
‘Cause I don’t think I’m good enough
The impossible must be done

[Verse 2]
You’re excluded, you can’t play with us (With us)
We all hate you, cringe when you walk by (So walk on by)

[Pre-Chorus]
So what’s someone to do
When they’ve got nothing else to choose
Suppose there’s nothing left to lose
No one will know when you’re gone

[Chorus]
There’ll be wave after wave of emotion, but none of them love
The impossible must be
When you run down the road less traveled and stare at the sun
The impossible must be
God, give me grace under pressure
‘Cause I don’t think I’m good enough
The impossible must be done

[Post-Chorus]
The impossible must be done
The impossible must be done

[Bridge]
Here lies the body of someone who didn’t try
Who gave up long ago before they died

[Pre-Chorus]
Your face’ll never fit
And there’s nowhere left to sit
Everything you’ve done is shit
And you’re wasting your time, mate, move on

[Chorus]
There’ll be wave after wave of emotion, but none of them love
The impossible must be
When you run down the road less traveled and stare at the sun
The impossible must be
God, give me grace under pressure
‘Cause I don’t think I’m good enough
The impossible must be done

[Post-Chorus]
The impossible must be done
The impossible must be done

[Robbie Williams (Rod Stewart):]
One can have a dream baby
(Two can make a dream so real)
One can talk about being in love
(Two can see how it really feels)

One can wish upon a star
(Two can make a wish come true)
One can stand alone in the dark
(Two can make a light shine through)

[Both:]
It takes two baby
It takes two baby
Just me and you
You know it takes two

[Robbie Williams (Rod Stewart):]
One can have a broken heart living in misery
(Two can really ease the pain like a perfect remedy, oh yeah)
One can be alone in a bar like an island he’s all alone

[Both:]
Two can make just any place seem just like bein’ at home

It takes two baby
It takes two baby
Just me and you
You know it takes two
It takes two baby
It takes two baby
Just me and you
You know it takes two
It takes two baby
It takes two baby
Just me and you
You know it takes two

[Both:]
It takes two baby
It takes two baby
Just me and you
You know it takes two

One can go out to a movie looking for a special treat
(Two can make that single movie something really kind of neat)
One can take a walk in the moonlight thinking that it’s really nice (oh, nice)
[Rod Stewart {both}:]
Two lovers walking hand in hand {is like adding just a pinch of spice}

[Both:]
It takes two baby
It takes two baby
Just me and you
You know it takes two
It takes two baby
It takes two baby
Just me and you
You know it takes two
It takes two baby
It takes two baby
Just me and you
You know it takes two

[Rod Stewart:]
You know it takes two

[Robbie Williams:]
You know it takes two
You know it takes two
Two, two…
You know it takes two
You know it takes two…

That girl is whoa, whoa, whoa
Yo, need no mistletoe
My girl’s the finest, the fliest
No ho, ho, ho
Y’all feel me?

Hop in my car
Wanna ride shotgun down the boulevard?
You know who we are
I sing your favorite song
(Eh-hey-yeah)

It’s that time of the year
No snow in L.A., but at least you’re here
I hold you while you melt in my arms

Yes, tonight you’re mine
(You’re mine)
December 25th
Goin’ down like this

Put your lips on my lips
Wish me merry kissmas
Make it easy as one, two, three
Close your eyes, make a wish
Wish me merry kissmas
And the rest is just history
That girl is whoa, whoa, whoa
Yo, need no mistletoe
My girl’s the finest, the fliest
No ho, ho, ho
Y’all feel me?

Whoa, whoa, whoa
Yo, need no mistletoe
My girl’s the finest, the fliest
No ho, ho, ho
Y’all feel me?

Everyday’s a holiday
Where baby’s makin’ out with me
Sit on my lap like I’m Santa Claus
(Eh-hey-yeah)

One time for the man, oh
Gotta say thank you, put my hands up
Look at this angel that’s on my arm

Yes, tonight you’re mine
(You’re mine)
December 25th goin’ down like this

Put your lips on my lips
Wish me merry kissmas
Make it easy as one, two, three
Close your eyes, make a wish
Wish me merry kissmas
And the rest is just history
That girl is whoa, whoa, whoa
Yo, need no mistletoe
My girl’s the finest, the fliest
No ho, ho, ho
Y’all feel me?

Whoa, whoa, whoa
Yo, need no mistletoe
My girl’s the finest, the fliest
No ho, ho, ho
Y’all feel me?

Put your lips on my lips

Make it easy as one, two, three
Close your eyes, make a wish
Wish me merry kissmas
And the rest is just history
(Yeah)
Y’all feel me?

(Oh, ho-oh)

(Oh, ho-oh)

(Oh, ho-oh)
(Yeah)
Y’all feel me?
(Oh, ho-oh)
(Yeah)
(Oh, ho-oh)
(Yeah)
(Oh, ho-oh)
(Yeah)
Y’all feel me?

What if I don’t come, what if I die
What if I ruin Christmas night again
Know that shit’s been on your mind, babe
Every time Santa comes, oh
I guess we’ll all find out tomorrow

It’s all that I am, all that I’m not
Not gonna give everything I’ve got
Who’s gonna give it all to you?
You’re probably just returning
You’ll still be disappointed
Guess we’ll all find out tomorrow

I’m not queuing up to take the abuse
I know it seems so cold but I flatly refuse
What the hell are you so angry for?
Let’s not do Christmas anymore

Too many judgements, too many times
Too many «I’ll apologize»
You know they’ve all come back to haunt you
Just like the ghost of Christmas, whoa-oh-oh
I’ll never come to pass

What if I’m right, what if you’re wrong
You knew you’d end up in a song of mine
But the melody’s disjointed
The words are coupled together, oh-whoa-oh
Just like me in here
I’m not queuing up to take the abuse
I know it seems so cold but I flatly refuse
What the hell are you so angry for?
Let’s not do Christmas anymore

Don’t like that, don’t like that
Hey, baby, don’t like that thing for me
I don’t like that, don’t like that
Hey, baby, don’t like that thing for me
Don’t like that, I don’t like that
Hey, baby, don’t like that thing for me
You do you and I’ll do me

I’m not queuing up to take the abuse
I know it seems so cold but I flatly refuse
What the hell are you so angry for?
Let’s not do Christmas anymore
(Not this time)
Let’s not do Christmas anymore

[Verse 1]
They said there’ll be snow at Christmas
They said there’ll be peace on Earth
But instead it just kept on raining
A veil of tears for the virgin birth
I remember one Christmas morning
A winter’s light and a distant choir
And the peal of a bell and that Christmas tree smell
And their eyes full of tinsel and fire

[Verse 2]
They sold me a dream of Christmas
They sold me a Silent Night
They told me a fairy story
‘Til I believed in the Israelite
And I believed in Father Christmas
And I looked to the sky with excited eyes
’Til I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn
I saw him and through his disguise

[Verse 3]
I wish you a hopeful Christmas
I wish you a brave New Year
All anguish pain and sadness
Leave your heart and let your road be clear
They said there’ll be snow at Christmas
They said there’ll be peace on Earth
Hallelujah, Noel, be it Heaven or Hell
The Christmas we get we deserve

[Verse 1]
Vacant in a photograph waiting
This isn’t just a hurricane
When you know what’s coming
It’s a Soul Transmission
As we walk through history together
Do you think we still come from
This world we live on?
It’s a soul condition

[Chorus]
How does it feel?
What you want me to say? Ayy
I said it feels like being alone on Christmas Day

[Verse 2]
Pretty soon the world will start shaking
Living in a tremelo
And I don’t get injured
In my Soul Transmission

[Chorus]
How does it feel?
What you want me to say? Ayy
I said it feels like being alone on Christmas Day
Sights and sounds
At the end of the day, ayy
Make me feel like being alone on Christmas Day
[Bridge]
Oh, keep it up
It’s your Soul Transmission
Oh, keep it up
It’s your Soul Transmission
Oh, keep it up
It’s your Soul Transmission
Oh, keep it up
It’s your Soul Transmission

[Verse 3]
Waiting in an empty cathedral
To look at what I’m running from
And I don’t get nervous
It’s a Soul Transmission

[Chorus]
How does it feel?
What you want me to say? Ayy
I said it feels like being alone on Christmas Day
Sights and sounds
At the end of the day, ayy
Make me feel like being alone on Christmas Day

Tell me where the autumn went
I missed it
Spring and summer flew by
In an instant

I’ve always said the wasted times
Are the minutes I’m not by your side
And now I travel through the night
Just to be there

I told you I’m never too far away
And if you need me then I’m on my way
Believe me when I tell you that I wanna stay
And we’re all together now

You are the light that
Is guidin’ me back
And I’ll be home for Christmas
(Home)
Home for Christmas
(Home)
Home for Christmas now
(Home now)
(Ooh…)

How many sleeps
Do I have to wait now
To throw these loving arms
Around my world?
I’ve always said the wasted times
Are the minutes I’m not by your side
Now I travel through the night
I will be there

I’ve told you I’m never too far away
And if you need me then I’m on my way
Believe me when I tell you that I wanna stay
And we’re all together now

You are the light that
Is guidin’ me back
And I’ll be home for Christmas
(Home)
Home for Christmas
(Home)
Home for Christmas now
(Home now)

My family, not so ordinary
You’d love them too
A little out of tune
But we’ll still sing for you

I told you I’m never too far away
And if you need me then I’m on my way
Believe me when I tell you that I wanna stay
And we’re all together now
You are the light that
Is guidin’ me back
And I’ll be home for Christmas
(Home)
Home for Christmas
(Home)
Home for Christmas now
(Home now)
(Ooh…)

I’ll unlock the door and
I’ll crawl into bed
You’ve got a big day tomorrow
So sleep, sleepy-head

(I’ll unlock the door and)
(I’ll crawl into bed)
And I’ll be home for Christmas
(Home)
Home for Christmas
(Home)
Home for Christmas now
(Home now)

I’ll unlock the door and
I’ll crawl into bed
You’ve got a big day tomorrow
So sleep, sleepy-head
(You’ve gotta unlock the door and)
(I’ll crawl into bed)
(You’ve got a big day tomorrow)
(So sleep, sleepy-head)
(Ah-ah)

Leave slowly but come back quick
Eat so much, it makes us sick
Start to look just like Saint Nick
And fall down like a snowflake

Uncle Dylan’s late to lunch
Nana Gwen’s drank too much
My lovely wife was buzzed at brunch
We’re all a bunch of snowflakes
We’re all a bunch of snowflakes

Murray the step-dad has brought Mary-Lou
Tryin’ to tell us why Trump good for you
The table goes quiet ’cause that’s what we do
We’re all liberal snowflakes

My dad’s new girlfriend from Taiwan
Brand new to the country and she’s 21
They met online and now she’s my mum
She’s never seen a snowflake
‘Cause they don’t get no snowflakes

Once in a lonely lifetime
There’ll be peace for all mankind
I went out to the world
And I was searchin’ for my tribe
Now it’s a family vibe
In this home of mine
The reason I’m alive
The snowflakes of mine

Mum’s bringin’ up the past again
And somehow World War III begins
Think I know how this one ends
I’m off to watch the snowflakes

Time won’t change us, nothin’ will
I know they’re not perfect but I love them still
Much makes me happy but my family will
Love this bunch of snowflakes
God bless this bunch of snowflakes

Once in a lonely lifetime
There’ll be peace for all mankind
I went out to the world
And I was searchin’ for my tribe

Now it’s a family vibe
In this home of mine
The reason I’m alive
The snowflakes of mine
All my life
A love insane
These are my people
Ooh-oh, oh, oh, oh

Time won’t change us, nothin’ will
I know they’re not perfect but I love them still
Not much makes me happy but my family will
I love this bunch of snowflakes
God bless this bunch of snowflakes

If I had to die tonight
I’d like to think, we’d be alright
What a life, man
What a life

From the cradle to the grave
I scream and echoes will remain
What a life, man
When you’re strange

Did you learn to ride the pain
Like tears in the rain? (Ah-ah)
Was your world insane? (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
Did you take aim?

Happy days are here again
If we can’t be lovers, let’s be friends
I just called to say
Happy New Year’s Day

Don’t know what we’re fighting for
But I can’t do it anymore
I just called to say
Happy New Year’s Day
(Ah-ah-ah-ah)
You’re out of sight
Not out of mind
If I could pause or rewind
I’d rewind man, I’d rewind
(Ooh-ooh-ooh)

When I die, I’ll die laughing
Don’t cry ’cause it’s over
Smile ’cause it happened
What a life, man
What a life

I’m still learning to ride the pain
Like a bike through the rain (Ah-ah)
Is anything changed (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
Should I take aim? (Fire)

Happy days are here again
If we can’t be lovers, let’s be friends
I just called to say
Happy New Year’s Day

Don’t know what we’re fighting for
But I can’t do it anymore
I just called to say
Happy New Year’s Day
Oh, it’s an energy (Ooh-ooh)
Oh, the memories (Ooh-ooh)
I hope you remember me and be happy! (Oh-oh)
Oh, it’s an energy (Ooh-ooh)
Oh, the memories (Ooh-ooh)
I hope you remember me and be happy!

(Happy, happy)
(Happy, happy)
(Happy, happy)
(Happy New Year’s Day)

Happy days are here again
If we can’t be lovers, let’s be friends
I just called to say
Happy New Year’s Day

Don’t know what we’re fighting for
But I can’t do it anymore
I just called to say
Happy New Year’s Day

Happy days are here again
If we can’t be lovers, let’s be friends
I just called to say
Happy New Year’s Day
Don’t know what we’re fighting for
But I can’t do it anymore
I just called to say
Happy New Year’s Day

I’m not religious, but I’ll take advice
Man, that day you gave was nice
Happy birthday, Jesus Christ
You make people here so happy
Love that thing you did with the scampi
Happy birthday, Jesus Christ

I’ll break bread with you
If you really need me to
You can turn water to wine
And your actual birthday’s at Christmastime

I get a feeling, deep in my soul
It’s a four-letter word and it’s taking me home
It goes L-O-V-E
The message is love, and you feel like Jesus to me

Everything’s so overpriced
Like Justin Bieber’s merchandise
Happy birthday, Jesus Christ
(Happy birthday, Jesus Christ)
Healed the lame, forgave the foolish
And on your first birthday you were Jewish
Happy birthday, Jesus Christ

I’ll break bread with you
If you really need me to
You can turn water to wine
And your actual birthday’s at Christmastime
I get a feeling, deep in my soul
It’s a four-letter word and it’s taking me home
It goes L-O-V-E
The message is love, and you feel like Jesus to me
The message is love, and you feel like Jesus to me
The message is love, and you feel like Jesus to me

(All I want)
Take me to church now
(All I need)
Take me to, take me to, take me to church

I get a feeling, deep in my soul
It’s a four-letter word and it’s taking me home
It goes L-O-V-E
The message is love, and you feel like Jesus to me
The message is love, and you feel like Jesus to me
The message is love, and you feel like Jesus to me

You know the song
Forget everything that went wrong
And all sing-along
It’s the time of the year where we all
Get along, ’cause as long as there’s beer
The real festive cheer
The money disappears

So come on, you sad sacks
You’re not gonna win the human race
Put on your glad rags
Go get off your face

Grab bad Sharon from the office
Nick the champagne, let’s get off it
Just in time for Auld Lang Syne
(Can’t believe it’s Christmas)

There’s still a few crackers left to pull
Under the mistletoe, you fools
Love your friends, spend, spend, spend
(Can’t believe it’s Christmas again)

You know the score
As soon as you’ll sink that shot, there’ll
Be one more
A sure as your face hits the floor
Come on, you sad sacks
A hand jives not out of place
Put on your glad rags
Go get off your face

Grab bad Sharon from the office
Nick the champagne, let’s get off it
Just in time for Auld Lang Syne
(Can’t believe it’s Christmas)

There’s still a few crackers left to pull
Under the mistletoe, you fools
Love your friends, spend, spend, spend
(Can’t believe it’s Christmas
Can’t believe it’s Christmas again)

‘Ere he comes, I can see him!
Go to bed you sleepy dossers!

Santa’s on his way
With the presents on his sleigh
So go to bed you sleepy head
Before he flies away

(Away, away, away, away, away)
Grab bad Sharon from the office
Nick the champagne, let’s get off it
Just in time for Auld Lang Syne
(Can’t believe it’s Christmas)

There’s still a few crackers left to pull
Under the mistletoe, you fools
Love your friends, spend, spend, spend
(Can’t believe it’s Christmas
Can’t believe it’s Christmas
Can’t believe it’s Christmas)

Santa’s on his way
With the presents on his sleigh
Santa’s on his way
With the presents on his sleigh
Santa’s on his way
With the presents on his sleigh
Santa’s on his way
With the presents on his sleigh

(Christmas)
The snow’s coming down
(Christmas)
I’m watching it fall
(Christmas)
Lots of people around
(Christmas)
Baby, please come home
(Christmas)
The Church bells in town
(Christmas)
All ringing in song
(Christmas)
Full of a happy sounds
(Christmas)
Oh baby please come home
(Christmas)

They’re singing «Deck The Halls»
But it’s not like Christmas at all
‘Cause I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

Pretty lights on the tree
Yeah I’m watching them shine
You should be here with me
Baby please come home
They’re singing «Deck The Halls»
But it’s not like Christmas at all
‘Cause I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

If there was a way
I’d hold back this tear
But it’s Christmas day
Please please please please
Please please please please
Please baby please come home
Please come home
Baby please come home
Baby please come home
Yeah yeah yeah…
Baby please come home
Please come home
Yeah yeah…

[Verse 1: Robbie Williams, Rod Stewart]
Raise up your glass, mighty heathen
Raise it up while we’re still breathin’
You and I don’t need a season
To start it all off for no reason

[Pre-Chorus: Robbie Williams, Rod Stewart, Robbie Williams & Rod Stewart]
Here we come
Howlin’ at dawn at the sun
Bring a friend
We’ll need someone to blame when we’re done
Two, three, four

[Chorus: Robbie Williams, Rod Stewart, Robbie Williams & Rod Stewart]
I hear them callin’, the angels are singin’
From far away
When I get this feelin’ then I start believin’
In fairytales
Even though sometimes we’re driftin’ apart
‘Tis the season to make a new start
‘Cause I believe in Christmas

[Verse 2: Robbie Williams]
Next year, I’ll wish you more laughter
And plenty of whatever you’re after
[Pre-Chorus: Robbie Williams, Rod Stewart, Robbie Williams & Rod Stewart]
Here we come
Let’s howl at the moon then the sun
Laugh along
We’ll need someone to blame when we’re done
Two, three, four

[Chorus: Robbie Williams & Rod Stewart, Rod Stewart]
I hear them callin’, the angels are singin’
From far away
When I get this feelin’ then I start believin’
In fairytales
Even though sometimes we’re driftin’ apart
‘Tis the season to make a new start
And we all believe in Christmas

[Pre-Chorus: Robbie Williams, Rod Stewart]
Here we are
Let’s howl at the moon from the bar
Come on, star
Everyone knows who we are

[Chorus: Robbie Williams, Rod Stewart, Robbie Williams & Rod Stewart]
Two, three, oh
I hear them callin’, the angels are singin’
From far away
I get this feelin’ then I start believin’
In fairytales
Even though sometimes we’re driftin’ apart
‘Tis the season to make a new start
Sometimes you’ve gotta look deep in your heart
Zero the score and follow the stars
And we all believe
All believe in Christmas

[Verse 1]
December, in London, think I just been made redundant
’95 or ’96, I really can’t remember which
Pack of fags, no bags, man I like to travel lightly
Who knows what tonight or tomorrow will bring

Will I fall into a quiet room saying «hold me now?»

[Chorus]
And even on the darkest night of the coldest year (It’s not Christmas night every night so come on bring your sex alive)
Hold my hand till the last day of the year (It’s not Christmas night every night so come on bring your sex alive)

[Verse 2]
Made of ale, made of sin, I want my sex and drugs again
I call you up, to get a fix, of northwest six
Minicab, two patsies, I’m dodging paparazzi
I bet they wish they could see me now
As we fall into a quiet room saying «hold me now?»

[Chorus]
And even on the darkest night of the coldest year (It’s not Christmas night every night so come on bring your sex alive)
Hold my hand till the last day of the year (It’s not Christmas night every night so come on bring your sex alive)
And even on the darkest night

[Bridge]
Now look at us, we’re all grown up
No one to tell us when to stop
And you know we couldn’t anyway
Yes, we’ll have our way on Christmas Day

[Chorus]
And even on the darkest night of the coldest year (It’s not Christmas night every night so come on bring your sex alive)
Hold my hand till the last day of the year (It’s not Christmas night every night so come on bring your sex alive)
And even on the darkest night

(Ooh, ooh)
Walk me out of here (Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
I’ll walk you out of here (Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
I’ll walk you out of here (Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh)

[Intro]
(Da-da-da, da, da, da)
(Da-da-da, da, da, da)
(Where we met on Christmas Eve)

[Verse 1]
She’s an aristo, I’m working class
And I treated her real bad
I never got to apologise
About the man who made you sad

I know I said a lot ’cause I was wired
When you’re young you’re a machine
We were drinking with the Idlewild
In the days of speed, and we met on Christmas Eve

[Chorus]
We drank until the morning light
Like we were never going home
And we sang a song a million sing
Just like we scored a goal

I must’ve made promises I couldn’t keep
But if you trust the fool then the fool you will be
But I looked into your eyes and sold you a dream
Then we fled the scene where we met on Christmas Eve

[Verse 2]
Then I moved into her big old house
I never been to Saint John’s Wood
There were movie stars and media types
We were all up to no good

And we all said a lot ’cause we were wild
What a twisted web we weave (What a twisted web we weave)
We were living with the Idlewild
In the days of speed, and we met on Christmas Eve

[Chorus]
We drank until the morning light
Like we were never going home
And we sang a song a million sing
Just like we scored a goal

I must’ve made promises I couldn’t keep
But if you trust the fool then the fool you will be
But I looked into your eyes and sold you a dream
Then we fled the scene where we met on Christmas Eve

[Bridge]
I know who you’re with, and I know where you are
I know you found love and you deserved it
I was just a kid, but I know what I did
I ask for forgiveness if I’m worth it

[Chorus]
We drank until the morning light
Like we were never going home
And we sang a song a million sing
Just like we scored a goal

I must’ve made promises I couldn’t keep
But if you trust the fool then the fool you will be
But I looked into your eyes and sold you a dream
Then we fled the scene where we met on Christmas Eve

[Outro]
(Da-da-da, da, da, da)
(Da-da-da, da, da, da)
(Where we met on Christmas Eve)
(Da-da-da, da, da, da)
(Da-da-da, da, da, da)
(Where we met on Christmas Eve)

[Verse 1]
For once in your life, make it better
For once in your life, let it be
Why don’t you hand it all over?
And sing it loudly with me?
Soon we will all be forgotten
But while we’re all still here on Earth
Sing about love and forget about loss
And shout for whatever you’re worth

[Pre-Chorus]
(Christmas time)
C’mon, spread the word
(Christmas time)
Doesn’t everyone hurt?

[Chorus]
Do you remember the good old days
When all the children would cheer?
Well, the time’s around, my friends
Santa’s nearly here
Christmas time, Christmas time, merry Christmas
And a happy new year
Seasons come, seasons go, winter song
Time for change is here

[Verse 2]
Mum’s got a lot to get together
And dad, he provides what he can
They’ve been saving up forever and ever and ever
Just to do it all over again

[Pre-Chorus]
(Christmas time)
Got me dreaming of home
(Christmas time)
Fills my heart full of hope

[Chorus]
Do you remember the good old days
When all the children would cheer?
Well, the time’s around, my friends
Santa’s nearly here
Christmas time, Christmas time, merry Christmas
And a happy new year
Seasons come, seasons go, winter song
Time for change is here

[Bridge]
A time for a change
Must be here
So send all your loving out into the world
It’s your gift

[Chorus]
Do you remember the good old days
When all the children would cheer?
Well, the time’s around, my friends
Santa’s nearly here
Christmas time, Christmas time, merry Christmas
And a happy new year
Seasons come, seasons go, winter song
Time for change is here

[Spoken]
It’s been another crazy year, folks, as always
And I, like you, I’ve been tryin’ my best
And then trying to get it right
Sometimes, we’re obviously going to get it wrong
But next year, more than any other year
I got a feelin’ that if we keep strong, and keep on keepin’ on, we’re all gonna be okay
So from my house to yours, from the family Williams
I wish you the best Christmas and a very, very, happy New Year. Night night, everyone, night night

[Verse 1]
The snow crunches underfoot
As I walk up to your door
And I realize this face of mine’s been ravaged for the longest time
And you might not recognize me anymore
But, darlin’, it’s your daddy
Please forgive me for what I’ve done
I know you despise the tears
That lines the fear that holds them in inside
I’m sorry, I was wrong

[Chorus]
Just give me one last Christmas
I’ll make it up to you
Sadness is a friend of mine
I’ve let you down a million times
Give me one last Christmas with you

[Verse 2]
I know I don’t deserve it
If I was you, I’d slam the door
We paid the cost for the things we lost
I blew up all the lines I crossed
‘Cause I don’t come ’round here anymore

[Chorus]
Give me one last Christmas
I’ll make it up to you
Sadness is a friend of mine
I’ve let you down a million times
Give me one last Christmas with you
[Bridge]
Darlin’, I know I hurt you bad
And I don’t deserve your kindness or fuse
I left your mother
To be a father too
And I realize I lost my life
When I walked out on you

[Chorus]
Give me one last Christmas
I’ll make it up to you
Sadness is a friend of mine
I’ve let you down a million times
Give me one last Christmas with you
Just give me one last Christmas
I’ll make it up to you
Sadness is a friend of mine
I’ve let you down a million times
Give me one last Christmas with you

[Verse 1]
Once upon a northern city
Where I lay my head
Trying to hear Saint Nick’s footsteps
Awake in my bed
All the presents I hope I’ll get are runnin’ through my mind
But I’m not sure Santa’s real anymore
‘Cause I heard it from my teacher at school
I don’t care what they say to me

[Chorus]
‘Cause I still believe it’ll be the best Christmas ever
(The best Christmas ever)
(The best Christmas ever)
The best Christmas ever
(The best Christmas ever)
(The best Christmas ever)

[Verse 2]
Many years have passed since then and
More has been revealed
Now I sit with all my children
I know Santa’s real
I can’t wait to tuck them in tonight
‘Cause I need a moment with the love of my life
I don’t think she could mean more to me
[Chorus]
‘Cause I still believe it’ll be the best Christmas ever
(The best Christmas ever)
(The best Christmas ever)
The best Christmas ever
(The best Christmas ever)
(The best Christmas ever)

[Verse 3]
I remember those dark Christmas days
When fairy lights would vanish in the haze
Sure, I heard a voice sayin’ «Stick around» to me
‘Cause you will believe, you and your family
Just you wait and see

[Chorus]
It’ll be the best Christmas ever
(The best Christmas ever)
(The best Christmas ever)
The best Christmas ever
(The best Christmas ever)
(The best Christmas ever)
(La-la-la-la-la-la-la)
(La-la-la-la-la-la-la)
(La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la)

Santa Baby, just slip a sable under the tree, for me
Been an awful good girl
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, a 54 convertible too, light blue
I’ll wait up for you dear
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Think of all the fun I’ve missed
Think of all the fellas that I haven’t kissed
Next year I could be just as good
If you’ll check off my Christmas list

Santa baby, I wanna yacht, and really that’s not a lot
Been singing angels all year
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex, and checks
Sign your ‘X’ on the line
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa honey, one little thing I really do need, the deed
To a platinum mine
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tiffany’s
I really do believe in you
Let’s see if you believe in me
Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, some bling
I don’t mean on the phone
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry, tonight

[Verse 1]
It’s Christmas time, there’s always much to do
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)
I’d rather spend my time and be with you
(Ooh-ooh)
I’m overcome with fear and sadness
Baby, save me from this madness
By doing something I would like to do
(Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)

[Chorus]
Let’s not go shopping
When cars start stopping
Outside it’s snowing
And ten below
It’s better warming by the fireside
With yuletide candle glow
I don’t wanna hear those till bells ringing
No, no, no

[Verse 2]
We don’t need shopping, it gets me hopping
We could be bopping with Old King Cole
Instead of trudging through the ice and snow
We’ll close the drapes and lock all the doors
And leave that shopping to Mister Claus
[Instrumental Break]

[Verse 3]
We’ll just not venture to shopping centers
No retail tension, no stress or strife
We’ll kick on back with nothing else to do
Give staying home a round of applause
Let’s not go shopping, just hang your stocking
And leave that shopping to Santa Claus

[Outro]
Thank you, Saint Nick!

[Verse: Robbie Williams, Poppa Pete]
One more sleep to go
I’m gettin’ that buzz
This candy-coated Christmas feels like it should
And ba-ba-ba-ba-bing sings love (Sings love)
Again
We’re watchin’ the box
The oldies are on
Eric, me, and Ernie, all havin’ fun
And who’s the Christmas number one?
It’s me

[Chorus: Robbie Williams, Poppa Pete, Robbie Williams & Poppa Pete]
It’s just you and me
The lights on a tree
And magic that’s everywhere (Everywhere you go)
The gin and the juice
The goose and the spruce
And jingle bells in the air (Happy Christmas)
I’ve counted them up
With pleasure enough
And no one else could disagree
So I know that it’s a wonderful life for you and me

[Post-Chorus]
(Have yourself a merry Christmas)
(Sing those songs you reminisce with)
(Hope there is snow and maybe a kiss or two)
(Presents wrapped and kids sleep tight)
(Starry night the moonbeams bright)
(And just for some fun)
(But I’m cozy, warm with you)

[Chorus: Robbie Williams, Poppa Pete, Robbie Williams & Poppa Pete]
It’s just you and me
The lights on a tree (Lights on a tree)
The magic that’s everywhere (Everywhere you go)
The gin and the juice
The goose and the spruce
And jingle bells in the air (Happy Christmas, Happy Christmas)
I’ve counted them up
With pleasure enough
And no one else could disagree
So I know that it’s a wonderful life
I know that it’s a wonderful life
I know that it’s a wonderful life for you and me
For you and me
Go on, grump
For me and you
For you and me

[Outro: Robbie Wiliams]
Merry Christmas, Poppa

[Verse 1]
There’s twinkle lights
And colored balls
And holly bells
To deck the halls
But the turkey’s burnt
All those arguments
Oh, it’s Christmas
With neighbors Bob
And Betty here
The folks you see
But once a year
Eatin’ all my food
Drinkin’ all my beer
Yeah, it’s Christmas

[Chorus]
The red-suited, bearded, fat, man is on his way
But all I get is socks and bills to pay
‘Cause we’re celebratin’ Christmas

[Verse 2]
And paper hats
And in a heap
And cracker kings
Are sound asleep
And the TV’s on
But it all repeats
Yeah, it’s Christmas
[Chorus]
The red, cheap, jolly, fat, guy’s on his sleigh
Oh, we’re in debt, but there’s a year to pay
‘Til we’re celebratin’ Christmas

[Outro]
All hush falls on
The neighborhood
Kinda like
We knew it would
All is calm
All is good
Yeah, it’s Christmas

[Verse 1]
Little ones, it’s time for bed
Time to rest your buzzy head
The land of dozy dreams ahead
For you

[Chorus]
Driftin’ like the fall of snow
Feathers floatin’ down below
If you’ve been good then Santa knows
Just keep those eyes closed

[Verse 2]
Softly sleeps the silent night
Fade your troubles out of sight
With a Christmas lullaby
For you

[Chorus]
Whisper soft and drift away
Soon it will be Christmas day
For now, just dream sweet and sleep tight

[Verse 3]
Little ones, it’s time for bed
Time to rest your buzzy head
The land of dozy dreams ahead
For you
[Chorus]
Drifting like the fall of snow
Feathers floatin’ down below
If you’ve been good then Santa knows
Just keep those eyes closed

[Verse 4]
Softly sleeps the silent night
Fade your troubles out of sight
With a Christmas lullaby
For you

[Chorus]
Whisper soft and drift away
Soon it will be Christmas day
For now, just dream sweet and sleep tight

[Outro]
For now, just dream sweet and sleep tight

[Verse]
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos
Everybody knows
A turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

[Chorus]
They know that Santa’s on his way
He’s loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother’s child is going to spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly
And so I’m offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to 92
Although it’s been said, many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you

[Refrain]
And so I’m offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to 92
Although it’s been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas to you

[Verse 1]
Oh, the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
It doesn’t show signs of stopping
And I brought some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

[Chorus]
When we finally kiss goodnight
How I’ll hate going out in the storm
But if you really hold me tight
All the way home I’ll be warm

[Verse 2]
The fire is slowly dying
And my dear, we’re still goodbying
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

[Chorus]
When we finally kiss goodnight
How I’ll hate going out in the storm
But if you really hold me tight
All the way home I’ll be warm

[Outro]
Oh, the fire is slowly dying
And my dear, we’re still goodbying
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

[Verse 1]
Are you hanging up a stocking on your wall?
It’s the time that every Santa has a ball
Does he ride a red-nosed reindeer?
Does a ton-up on his sleigh?
Do the fairies keep him sober for a day?

[Chorus]
So here it is, Merry Christmas
Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now
It’s only just begun[Verse 2]
Are you waiting for the family to arrive?
Are you sure you’ve got the room to spare inside?
Does your granny always tell you
That old songs are the best?
Then she’s up and rock-‘n’-rolling with the rest

[Chorus]
So here it is, Merry Christmas
Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now
It’s only just begun
What will your daddy do when he sees your momma kissing Santa Claus?

[Verse 2]
Are you hanging up a stocking on your wall?
Are you hoping that the snow will start to fall?
Do you ride on down the hillside
In a buggy you have made?
When you land upon your head then you’ve been slayed

[Chorus]
So here it is, Merry Christmas
Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now
It’s only just begun

So here it is, Merry Christmas
Everybody’s having fun
Look to the future now
It’s only just begun
(It’s only just begun)

So here it is, Merry Christmas
Everybody’s having fun
(Everybody’s having fun)
Look to the future now
It’s only just begun

[Intro]
Wonderland, winter wonderland
Wonderland, winter wonderland

[Chorus]
Sleigh bells ring, are ya listening?
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland

[Post-Chorus]
Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
He’s singing a love song as we go along
Walking in a winter wonderland

[Verse 1]
In the meadow, we can build a snowman
Then pretend that he is Parson Brown
He’ll say, «Are you married?» We’ll say, «No man»
But you can do the job when you’re in town

[Refrain]
Later on, we’ll conspire
As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid, the plans that we’ve made
Walking in a winter wonderland
[Chorus]
Sleigh bells ring, are you listening
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland

[Verse 2]
In the meadow, we can build a snowman
And pretend that he’s a circus clown
We’ll have lots of fun with Mr. Snowman
Until the other kiddies knock him down

[Refrain]
When it snows, ain’t it thrilling?
Though your nose gets a chilling
We’ll frollock and play, the Eskimo way
Walking in a winter wonderland (Wonderland)
Wonderland (Wonderland)
Wonderland

I box ’em up with a bow
Then I go pole to pole
Rudolph, follow your nose
(Rudolph, follow your nose)
To Japan, Isle of Man
Down to Cannes and Kazhakstan
Rudy knows where to go
(Rudy knows where to go)

Rudy knows where to go
(Rudy knows where to go)
Through the sky and the snow
Man, it’s forty below
Watch me as I go, oh

Hear the Christmas choir
Chorus from the street below
Boys and girls that say they saw us
Dashing through the snow, oh

Over the hills and far, far away
You can be sure that I’m on my way

I meet myself, coming back
Now I’m going faster than fast
I go back to the past
(I go back to the past)
Down the flutes, in my boots
Now I’m covered in soot
Mrs. Claus will go mad
(Mrs. Claus will go mad)

Mrs. Claus will go mad
(Mrs. Claus will go mad)
I’ll be dealing with that
But it’s all in the plan
And she knows I’m the man

Hear the Christmas choir
Chorus from the street below
Boys and girls that say they saw us
Dashing through the snow, oh

Over the hills and far, far away
You can be sure that I’m on my way

Hear the Christmas choir
Chorus from the street below
Boys and girls that say they saw us
Dashing through the snow, oh
