So Far Away
Here I am again in this mean old town
And you're so far away from me
And where are you when the sun goes down
You're so far away from me

So far away from me
So far I just can't see
So far away from me
You're so far away from me

I'm tired of being in love and being all alone
When you're so far away from me
I'm tired of making out on the telephone
And you're so far away from me

So far away from me
So far I just can't see
So far away from me

I get so tired when I have to explain
When you're so far away from me
See you're been in the sun and I've been in the rain

So far away from me
So far I just can't see
So far away from me
You're so far away from meback to top
Money For Nothing
Look at them yo-yo's
That's the way you do it
Play the banjo on the MTV
That ain't workin' that's the way to do it
Money for nothin' chicks for free
That ain't working that's the way to do it
Lemme tell ya them guy's ain't dumb
Maybe get a blister on you little singer
May get a buster on you thumb.

We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these colour TV's

See that little faggot with the tutu
Yeah buddy that's his own heir and the earrings
That little faggot's got his own jet airplane
That little faggot he's a millionaire

We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these colour TV's

I should learned to play the guitar
I should learned to play them drums
Look at that she got it stickin' in the camera
Man we could have some sun
And he's up there makin' Hawaiian noises
Bangin' on the bongos like a chimpanzee
That ain't workin' that's the way ya do it
Money for nothin' chicks for free

We gotta install microwave ovens
Custom kitchen deliveries
We gotta move these refrigerators
We gotta move these colour TV's

Look at them yo-yo's
That's the way you do it
Play the banjo on the MTV
That ain't workin' that's the way ya do it
Money for nothin' chicks for freeback to top
Walk Of Life
Here comes Johnny singing oldies, goldies
Be-Bop-A-Lula, Baby What I Say
Here comes Johnny singing I Gotta a Woman
Down in the tunnels, trying to make it play
He got the action, he got the motion

Yeah the boy can play
Dedication devotion
Turning all the night time into the day
He do the song about the sweet lovin' woman
He do the song about the knife
He do the walk he do the walk of life

Here comes Johnny and he'll tell you the story
Hand me down my walkin' shoes
Here comes Johnny with the power and the glory
Back beat the talkin' blues

Yeah the boy can play
Dedication devotion
Turning all the night time into the day
He do the song about the sweet lovin' woman
He do the song about the knife
He do the walk he do the walk of life

Here comes Johnny singing oldies, goldies
Be-Bop-A-Lula, Baby What I Say
Here comes Johnny singing I Gotta a Woman
Down in the tunnels, trying to make it play
He got the action, he got the motion

And after all the violence and double talk
There's just a song in all the trouble and the strife
You do the walk, you do the walk of life.back to top
Your Latest Trick
All the late night bargains have been struck
Between the satin beans and their bells
And prehistoric garbage trucks
Have the city to themselves
Echoes and the roars dinosaurs
They're all doing the monster mash
And most of the taxis and the whores
Are only taking calls for cash

I don't know how it happened
It all took please so quick
But all I can do is hand it to you
And your latest trick

My door was standing open
Security was laid back and lax
But it was only my heart got broken
You must have had a pass key made out of wax
You played robbery with insolence
And I played the blues in twelve bars on Lover's Lane
And you never did have the intelligence to use
The twelve keys hanging off my chain

I don't know how it happened
It all took please so quick
But all I can do is hand it to you
And your latest trick

Now it's past last call far alchohol
Past recall has been here and gone
The landlord sinally paid us all
The satin jazzmen have put away their horns
And we're standing outside of these wonderlands
Looking so bereaved and so bereft
Like a bowery bum when he finally understands
The bottle's empty and there's nothing left

I don't know how it happened
It all took please so quick
But all I can do is hand it to you
And your latest trickback to top
Why Worry?
Baby I see this world has made you sad
Some people can be bad
The things they do, the thing they say
But baby I'll wipe away those bitter tears
I'll chase away those restless jears
That turn your blue skies into grey

Why worry, there should be laughter after pain
There should be sunshine after rain
There things has always been the some
So why worry now

Baby when I'm down I turn to you
And you make sense of what I do
I know it isn't hard to say
Bat baby just when this world seems mean
Our love comes shining red and gold and cold
And all the rest is by the way

Why worry, there should be laughter after pain
There should be sunshine after rain
There things has always been the some
So why worry nowback to top
Ride Across The River
I'm a soldier of freedom in the army of man
We are the chosen we're the partisan
The cause it is noble and the cause it is just
We are ready to pay with our lives if we must

Gonna ride across the river deep and wide
Ride across the river to the other side

I'm soldier of the fortune, I'm a dog of war
And we don't give a damn who the killing is for
It's the same old story with a different name
Death or Glory, it's the killing game

Gonna ride across the river deep and wide
Ride across the river to the other side

Nothing can stop them as the day follows the night
Right becomes wrong, the left becomes the right
And they sing as they march with their flags unfurled
Today in the mountains, tomorrow the world

Gonna ride across the river deep and wide
Ride across the river to the other sideback to top
The Man's Too Strong
I'm just an ageing drummer boy
And in the wars I used to play
And I've called the tune
To many a tortune session
Now they say I am war criminal
And I'm fading away
So father please hear my confession

I have legalized robbery
Galled belief
I have run with the money
And hid like a thief
I have rewritten history
With my armies and my crooks
Invented memories
I did burn all the books And I can still hear his laughter
I can still hear his song
The man's too big
The man's too strong

Well I have tried to be meek
And I have tried to be mild
But I spat like a woman
And sulked like a child
I have lived behind walls
That have made me alone
Striven for pease
Which I never have knows
And I can still hear his laughter
and I can still hear his song
The man's too big
The man's to strongback to top
One World
Can't find no sleives from my records
Can't get no socks for my shoes
Can't get no fancy notes on by blue guitar
Can't get no antidote for blues

Can't find the reasons for your actions
And I don't much like the reasoning you use
Somehow your motives are impure
Or somehow I can't find the cure
Can't find no antidote for blues

They say it's mostly vanity
That writes the plays we act
They tell me that's what everybody knows
There's no such thing as sanity
And that's the sanest fact
That's the way the story goes

Can't get no remedy on my TV
There's nothing but the same old news
They can't find a way to be
One world in harmony
Can't get no antidote for bluesback to top
Brothers In Arms
These mist covered mountains
Are home now for me
But my home is the lowland
And always will be
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptisms of fire
I've watched all your suffering
As the battles raged higher
Though they did hurt me
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the Sun's gone to Hell
And the Moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms
