Matthew & Son
Up at eight, you can't be late

For matthew & son, he won't wait.

Watch them run down to platform one
And the eight-thirty train to matthew & son.

Matthew & son, the work's never done, there's always something new.
The files in your head, you take them to bed, you're never ever through.
And they've been working all day, all day, all day!

There's a five minute break and that's all you take,
For a cup of cold coffee and a piece of cake.

Matthew & son, the work's never done, there's always something new.
The files in your head, you take them to bed, you're never ever through.
And they've been working all day, all day, all day!

He's got people who've been working for fifty years
No one asks for more money cuz nobody cares
Even though they're pretty low and their rent's in arrears

Matthew & son, matthew & son, matthew & son, matthew & son,
And they've been working all day, all day, all day!back to top
I Love My Dog
I love my dog as much as I love you
But you may fade, my dog will always come through.

All he asks from me is the food to give him strength
All he ever needs is love and that he knows he'll get

So, I love my dog as much as I love you
But you may fade, my dog will always come through.

All the pay I need comes shining through his eyes
I don't need no cold water to make me realize that

I love my dog as much as I love you
But you may fade, my dog will always come through.

Na, na, na, na, na, na, nana...

I love my dog as much as I love you
But you may fade, my dog will always come through.

Na, na, na, na, na, na, nana...

I love my dog, baby, I love my dog. na, na, na...
I love my dog, baby, I love my dog. na, na, na...back to top
Here Comes My Baby
In the midnight moonlight I'll be walking a long and lonely mile.
And every time I do, I keep seeing this picture of you.

Here's comes my baby, here she comes now,
And it comes as no surprise to me, with another guy.
Here's comes my baby, here she comes now,
Walking with a love, with a love that's all so fine,
Never could be mine, no matter how I try.

You never walk alone, and you're forever talking on the phone.
I've tried to call you names, but every time it comes out the same.

Here's comes my baby, here she comes now,
And it comes as no surprise to me, with another guy.
Here's comes my baby, here she comes now,
Walking with a love, with a love that's all so fine,
Never could be mine, no matter how I try.

I'm still waiting for your heart, cuz I'm sure that some day it's gonna start.
You'll be mine to hold each day, but 'til then this is all that I can say.

Here's comes my baby, here she comes now,
And it comes as no surprise to me, with another guy.
Here's comes my baby, here she comes now,
Walking with a love, with a love that's all so fine,
Never could be mine, no matter how I try.back to top
Bring Another Bottle Baby
Better bring another bottle with you baby
If you really want to party then lets make it swing
Right into the morning.
Better bring another bottle with you baby
Cuz I really want to make this little bell ring.
Ding dong, ding.

I feel cold and I want to get you by my side
I feel bold and I want to show you how this man can ride.

Better bring another bottle with you baby
If you really want to party then lets make it swing
Right into the morning.
Better bring another bottle with you baby
Cuz I really want to make this little bell ring.
Ding dong, ding.

I feel smooth and I really want to live it up
If we groove then I promise you that we won't even stop

Better bring another bottle with you baby
I get the feeling that you want to take off and fly
High, high, well if my ceiling isn't high enough
We'll burn up the sky.

I feel smooth and I really want to live it up
If we groove then I promise you that we won't even stop

Better bring another bottle with you baby
I get the feeling that you want to take off and fly
High, high, well if my ceiling isn't high enough
We'll burn up the sky.

Better bring another bottle with you baby
Better try to bring another bottle now
Better bring another bottle baby
Better bring another bottle with you now.back to top
Portobello Road
Getting hung up all day on smiles
Walking down portobello road for miles
Greeting strangers in indian boots,
Yellow ties and old brown suits
Growing old is my only danger

Cuckoo clocks, and plastic socks
Lampshades of old antique leather
Nothing looks weird, not even a beard
Or the boots made out of feathers

I'll keep walking miles til I feel
A broom beneath my feet
Or the hawking eyes of an old stuffed bull across the street

Nothings the same if you see it again
It'll be broken down to litter
Oh, and the clothes
Everyone know that that dress will never fit her

Getting hung up all day on smiles
Walking down portobello road for miles
Greeting strangers in indian boots,
Yellow ties and old brown suits
Growing old is my only danger

Cuckoo clocks, and plastic socks
Lampshades of old antique leather
Nothing looks weird, not even a beard
Or the boots made out of feathers

I'll keep walking miles til I feel
A broom beneath my feet
Or the hawking eyes of an old stuffed bull across the street

Nothing's the same if you see it again
It'll be broken down to litter
Oh, and the clothes
Everyone know that that dress will never fit her

Getting hung up all day on smiles
Walking down portobello road for miles
Greeting strangers in indian boots,
Yellow ties and old brown suits
Growing old is my only dangerback to top
I've Found a Love
Baby, I've never had a single thing in my life I could call my own.
There you were, holding a love so true,
Now I've got a home, now I've got a home.

I found a love, hidden in a backstreet
I found a love, baby
I found a love, hidden in a backstreet
Hidden away from the world, baby

Baby, you really make me feel like a king, a king without a crown.
But darlin', promise me one little thing: that you won't let me down.

I found a love, hidden in a backstreet
I found a love, baby
I found a love, hidden in a backstreet
Hidden away from the world, baby

Don't ever tell me lies baby,
Don't take it for a ride baby,
Just stay here by my side baby,
We won't ever stop.

I found a love, hidden in a backstreet
I found a love, baby
I found a love, hidden in a backstreet
Hidden away from the world, babyback to top
I See a Road
I see a road and I want to go home,
I want to go home, my baby will be waitin' there
With a yellow ribbon in her hair
And I know that she won't disappear cuz she loves me
Too much

I see a road and I want to go home,
I want to go home, my baby will be gettin' old
And I want to make sure she's not cold
Yes, I want to make sure she's not cold cuz I love her
Too much

Where silk music plays out in the country out of the way
We'll make love, yeah, under the blue sky above
And we'll be riding on top of the world

I see a road and I want to go home,
I want to go home, my baby will be waitin' there
With a yellow ribbon in her hair
And I know that she won't disappear cuz she loves me
Too much

I see a road and I want to go home....back to top
Baby Get Your Head Screwed On
Well if you're feelin' low, take it slow

Baby get your head screwed on
I know he's left, but don't be depressed
Baby let your {favorite? } daddy see you through

Oh baby you'll be out of your mind,
Baby you'll be out of your mind,
Baby you'll be out of your mind.

You know you're nice, you're sugar and spice
And I know what you're going through
And if you're hot hot, and even if you're not
Baby let your {favorite? } daddy see you through

Oh baby you'll be out of your mind,
Baby you'll be out of your mind,
Baby you'll be out of your mind.

You were so neat, ever so sweet,
And overnight you've seemed to change
Since you kissed your psychiatrist
Baby, you've never been the same.

Well if you're feelin' low, take it slow
Baby get your head screwed on
I know he's left, but don't be depressed
Baby let your favorite daddy see you through

Oh baby you'll be out of your mind,
Baby you'll be out of your mind,
Baby you'll be out of your mind.back to top
Granny
You were always were so nice
When it came to problems you knew
I never did think twice about ever coming to you

So granny, what on earth can I do?
Granny, granny, what on earth can I do?

'cause this little girl, this little girl, she's a driving me wild
She's a driving me wild, so wild, so wild, so wild

You always straightened me out
When I was feeling rough
But this one I really doubt
Cause this one's really tough

Oh granny, what on earth can I do?
Granny, granny, what on earth can I do?

'cause this little girl, this little girl, she's a driving me wild
She's a driving me wild, so wild, so wild, so wild

So, granny, what on earth can I do?
Granny, granny, what on earth can I do?

'cause this little girl, this little girl, she's a driving me wild
She's a driving me wild, so wild, so wild, so wildback to top
When I Speak to the Flowers
When I speak to the flowers in my backyard
When I speak to the flowers in my backyard
When I speak to the flowers in my backyard
They tell me to leave you, leave you behind
They tell my to leave you, just get you out of my mind.
They tell me to leave you, leave you behind
Ow, forget all the good times, that are making me blind.

I know you run around and you'll never settle down
And I should quit while I'm still on top
But when you hold me baby in your lovin' arms
I could love you forever baby, but

When I speak to the flowers in my backyard
When I speak to the flowers in my backyard
When I speak to the flowers in my backyard
They tell me to leave you, leave you behind
They tell my to leave you, just get you out of my mind.
They tell me to leave you, just leave you behind
Ow, forget all the good times, that are making me blind.back to top
The Tramp
He sleeps alone in the damp
And rests his head upon a door
The only bed he knows is the floor,

The tramp

Turned up collar and worn out shoes
He doesn't care 'cause he hasn't got nothing to lose

He sleeps alone in the damp
And rests his head upon a door
The only bed he knows is the floor,

The tramp

No companion to take him home
His only friends are the kind that just leave him alone
No one knows just how lonely his life has been
In a world that lives in a dream

He sleeps alone in the damp
And rests his head upon a door
The only bed he knows is the floor,

The trampback to top
Come on and Dance
I take you out all over town
But you always start sittin' down
You never move, baby what's wrong with me?
When we go dancin', you're just there like a tree

Baby come on and dance, you're holding me back
I've gotta get out this feeling, before I go mad
You gotta let me in, the music's getting me now
You gotta come on and dance, stop hangin' around

I don't care if you twist or jive, just as long as you're lookin' alive
You'll make me glad, baby you'll make me rise,
I wanna see that twinkle in your eyes

Baby come on and dance, you're holding me back
I've gotta get out this feeling, before I go mad
You gotta let me in, the music's getting me now
You gotta come on and dance, stop hangin' aroundback to top
Hummingbird
There's a yellow flower by your bed
Sadly droopin' it's perfumed head
So you won't smell it, I know what you'll miss

And there's a hummingbird, a hummingbird,
A hummingbird, a hummingbird,
Oh there's a hummingbird singing.

There is the hat you made, the clothes you wore
Lying down on the cold, dirty floor.
The colors are fading, they'll never shine again.

And there's a hummingbird, a hummingbird,
A hummingbird, a hummingbird,
Oh there's a hummingbird singing.

Now the road is turning gray,
There's a shadow where you once lay.
They'll find it tomorrow, and think you went alone.

But there's a hummingbird, a hummingbird,
A hummingbird, a hummingbird,
Ah there's a hummingbird crying.back to top
Lady
I was cold and so alone, but I couldn't help but moan
When the life that I was shown started crumbling
Then this crazy world that I live in, started giving more to me.

Oh, I've never known a lady like yourself,
Oh, I've never known a lady...

I was searching all the world, looking for a girl,
Then a lady made an earl of this poor boy.
Now this crazy world that I live in, started giving more to me.

Oh, I've never known a lady like yourself,
Oh, I've never known a lady...

Now this crazy world that I live in, started giving more to me.

Oh, I've never known a lady like yourself,
Oh, I've never known a lady...

I've never known a lady...back to top
School Is Out
School is out now we're gonna have some fun.
We're gonna make like we are the only ones.

I'm gonna buy a piece of the sky and sell passing clouds
I'm gonna be a mayor of some small town and tax the crowds
I'm gonna be a local surveyor and study the foreman {guilds? }
I'm gonna line up some of the finest girls that are in the world!

We're coming out of school today and we're so happy to be alive.
It's gonna be the best day, the best day of our lives.

Mmmm....

I'm gonna be a history maker I'll call myself richard the third.
I'm gonna buy an amplifier and shout out have you heard?

We're coming out of school today and we're so happy to be alive.
It's gonna be the best day, the best day of our lives.

We're coming out of school today...baby...back to top
I'm Gonna Get Me a Gun
I've been demoralized too many times
But now I realize, ah ah, no more.
I'm gonna get me a gun
I'm gonna get me a gun
And all those people who put me down
You better get ready to run,
Cuz I'm gonna get me a gun

I know my destiny is like the sun
You see the best of me when I have got my gun
I'm gonna get me a gun
I'm gonna get me a gun
And all those people who put me down
You better get ready to run,
Cuz I'm gonna get me a gun

So you think you can push me around
And make me run
Well I'm gonna tell you now
I'm gonna get me a gun
I'm gonna get me a gun
And all those people who put me down
You better get ready to run,
Cuz I'm gonna get me a gun

Gonna get me a gun...back to top
