Mis-Shapes
Mis-shapes, mistakes, misfits. Raised on a diet of broken biscuits, oh
we don't look the same as you, we don't do the things you do, but we
live around here too. Oh really. Mis-shapes, mistakes, misfits, we'd
like to go to town but we can't risk it, oh 'cause they just want to keep
us out. You could end up with a smash in the mouth just for standing
out. Oh really. Brothers, sisters, can't you see? The future's owned by
you and me. There won't be fighting in the street. They think they've
got us beat, but revenge is going to be so sweet. We're making a move,
we're making it now, we're coming out of the side-lines. Just put your
hands up - it's a raid yeah: We want your homes, we want your lives,
we want the things you won't allow us. We won't use guns, we won't
use bombs, we'll use the one thing we've got more of - that's our
minds. Check your lucky numbers, that much money could drag you
under, oh. What's the point of being rich if you can't think what to do
with it? 'Cause you're so very thick. Oh we weren't supposed to be, we
learnt too much at school now we can't help but see. That the future
that you've got mapped out is nothing much to shout about. We're
making a move, we're making it now, we're coming out of the
side-lines. Just put your hands up - it's a raid. We want your homes,
we want your lives, we want the things you won't allow us. We won't
use guns, we won't use bombs, we'll use the one thing we've got more
of - that's our minds. Brothers, sisters, can't you see? The future's
owned by you and me. There won't be fighting in the street. They think
they've got us beat but revenge is going to be so sweet. We're making
a move. We're making it now. We're coming out of the sidelines. Just
put your hands up - it's a raid. We want your homes, we want your
lives, we want the things you won't allow us. We won't use guns, we
won't use bombs, we'll use the one thing we've got more of - that's
our minds. And that's our minds. Yeah.back to top
I Spy
I spy a boy, I spy a girl. I spy the worst place in the world, in the whole
world. Oh you didn't do bad, you made it out, I'm still stuck here oh but
I'll get out. Oh yeah I'll get out. Can't you see a walks among you
seeing through your pretty lives. Do you think I do these things for real?
I do these things just so I survive. And you know I will survive. It may
look to the untrained eye I'm sitting on my arse all day and I'm biding
my time until I take you all on my Lords and Ladies I will prevail, I
cannot fail. Cause I spy. Oh I've got your numbers taken notes and all
the ways your minds work out. I've studied and your mind's just the
same as mine except that you're just clever swines, you never let
masks slip, you never admit to it, you're never hurried. Oh no no no.
And every night I hold my plan how I'll get my satisfaction, how I will
blow your paradise away away away ooh. Cause I spy. It's just like in
the old days - I used to compose my own critical notices in my head.
The crowd gasps at Cocker's masterful control of the bicycle, skilfully
avoiding the dog turd next to the corner shop. Imagining a blue plaque
above the place I first ever felt a girl's breasts, the whole 'nana. You've
got to wait for the best. You see you should take me seriously. Very
seriously indeed. Cause I've been sleeping with your wife for the past
sixteen weeks, smoking your cigarettes, drinking your brandy, messing
up the bed you chose together. And in all that time I just wanted you to
come home unexpectedly one afternoon and catch us at it in the front
room. You see I spy for a living and I specialise in revenge, on taking
the things I know will cause you pain. I can't help it, I was dragged up.
My favourite park's a car park, grass is something you smoke, birds is
something you shag. Take your year in Provence and shove it right up
your arse. Your Ladbroke Grove looks turn me on, yeah. With your
frightened eyes and roach burns under your eyes and addresses, and
thousands of tiny dryna-slides running a path, running a path to the
corner of your eyes. And every night I hatch my plan, it's not a case of
woman v man. It's more a case of haves against haven'ts and I just
happen to have got what you need, just exactly what you need yeah. La
la la la la la la la la la, in the midnight hour. La la la la la la la la la la, I
will come to you, I will come to you, I will take you from this sickness,
dinner parties and champagne, I'll hold your body and make it sing
again. come on - sing again, let's sing again. Oh yeah, cause I spy, yes,
I spy, ssss. I spy a boy and I spy a girl. I spy the chance to change the
world, to change your world.back to top
Common People
She came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge, she studied
sculpture at Saint Martin's College, that's where I caught her eye. She
told me that her Dad was loaded, I said in that case I'll have a rum and
coke-cola. She said fine and in thirty seconds time she said, I want to
live like common people, I want to do whatever common people do, I
want to sleep with common people, I want to sleep with common people
like you. Well what else could I do - I said I'll see what I can do. I took
her to a supermarket, I don't know why but I had to start it somewhere,
so it started there. I said pretend you've got no money, she just laughed
and said oh you're so funny. I said yeah? Well I can't see anyone else
smiling in here. Are you sure you want to live like common people, you
want to see whatever common people see, you want to sleep with
common people, you want to sleep with common people like me. But
she didn't understand, she just smiled and held my hand. Rent a flat
above a shop, cut your hair and get a job. Smoke some fags and play
some pool, pretend you never went to school. But still you'll never get it
right 'cos when you're laid in bed at night watching roaches climb the
wall if you call your Dad he could stop it all. You'll never live like
common people, you'll never do what common people do, you'll never
fail like common people, you'll never watch your life slide out of view,
and dance and drink and screw because there's nothing else to do. Sing
along with the common people, sing along and it might just get you
thru', laugh along with the common people, laugh along even though
they're laughing at you and the stupid things that you do. Because you
think that poor is cool. I want to live with common people, I want to live
with common people etc......back to top
Disco 2OOO
Well we were born within one hour of each other. Our mothers said we
could be sister and brother. Your name is Deborah. Deborah. It never
suited ya. Oh they thought that when we grew up we'd get married,
never split up. We never did it although often I thought of it. Oh
Deborah do you recall. Your house was very small with wood chip on
the wall. When I came around to call you didn't notice me at all. I said
let's all meet up in the year 2000. Won't it be strange when we're all
fully grown. Be there at 2 o'clock by the fountain down the road. I never
knew that you'd get married. I would be living down here on my own on
that damp and lonely Thursday years ago. You were the first girl at
school to get breasts. Martyn said that yours were the best. The boys
all loved you but I was a mess. I had to watch them trying to get you
undressed. We were friends but that was as far as it went. I used to
walk you home. Sometimes it meant nothing to you cause you were so
very popular. Ah Deborah do you recall. Your house was very small
with woodchip on the wall. When I came around to call you didn't notice
me at all. I said let's all meet up in the year 2000. Won't it be strange
when we're all fully grown. Be there at 2 o'clock by the fountain down
the road. I never knew that you'd get married. I would be living down
here on my own on that damp and lonely Thursday years ago. Oh yeah,
oh yeah. And now you've paid your money and you've taken your
choice. I know we'll never meet again but I want you to know, want you
to know that I remember every single thing. Ah do you recall. Your
house was very small with wood chip on the wall. When I came around
to call you didn't notice me at all. I said let's all meet up in the year
2000. Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown. Be there at 2
o'clock by the fountain down the road. I never knew that you'd get
married. I would be living down here on my own on that damp and lonely
Thursday years ago. Oh what are you doing Sunday baby. Would you
like to come and meet me maybe you can even bring your baby. Ohhh
ooh ooh. Ooh ooh ooh ooh. What are you doing Sunday baby. Would you
like to come and meet me baby you can even bring your baby. Ooh ooh
oh. Ooh ooh ooh ooh. Ooh ooh ooh ooh. Oh.back to top
F.E.E.L.I.N.G. C.A.L.L.E.D. L.O.V.E
The room is cold and has been like this for several months. If I close my
eyes I can visualise everything in it right down, right down to the
broken handle on the third drawer down of the dressing table. And the
world outside this room has also assumed a familiar shape, the same
events stuffed in a slightly different order each day. Just like a modern
shopping centre. And it's so cold - yeah it's so cold. An as I'm
standing across this room I feel as if my whole life has been leading to
this one moment. And as I touch your shoulder tonight this room has
become the centre of the entire universe. So what do I do? I've got a
slightly sick feeling in my stomach like I'm standing on top of a very
high building oh yeah. All the stuff they tell you about in the movies but
this isn't chocolate boxes and roses. It's dirtier than that, like some
small animal that only comes out at night. And I see flashes of the
shape of your breasts and the curve of your belly and they make me
have to sit down and catch my breath. It's so cold yeah, it's so cold.
What is this feeling called love. Why me, why you, why here, why now
ooh. It doesn't make no sense no. It's not convenient no. It doesn't fit
my plans no. It's something I don't understand oh. F.E.E.L.I.N.G. C.A.
double L.E.D. L.O.V.E. Oh what is this thing that is happening to me.
Oh. What is this feeling called love. Why me. Why you. Why here. And
why now ooh. It doesn't make no sense no. It's not convenient no. It
doesn't fit my plans but I got that taste in my mouth again oh.
F.E.E.L.I.N.G. C.A. double L.E.D. L.O.V.E. What is this thing that is
happening to me F.E.E.L.I.N.G. C.A.double L.E.D. L.O.V.E. What is
this thing that is happening to me. Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah.

Live Bed Show
She doesn't have to go to work but she doesn't want to stay in bed
cause it's changed from something comfortable to something else
instead. This bed has seen it all from the first time to the last, the
silences of now and the good times of the past and it only cost ten
pounds from a shop just down the road - mind you that was seven
years ago and things were very different then. It didn't get much rest at
first, the headboard banging in the night yeah. The neighbours didn't
dare complain and everything was going right. Now there's no need to
complain 'cos it never makes a sound. Something beautiful left town and
she doesn't even know its name. Now every night she plays the sad
game ooh ah ah, called pretending nothing's going wrong oh, oh but she
knows if this show was televised no one would watch it not tonight but
7 years ago. La la la la la la la (etc). Now there's no need to complain
'cos it never makes a sound, something beautiful left town and she
never even knew its name. She doesn't have to go to work but doesn't
want to stay in bed 'cause it's changed from something wonderful to
something else instead.back to top
Pencil Skirt
br>

When you raise your pencil skirt like a veil before my eyes, like the look
upon his face as he's zipping up his flies. Oh I know that you're
engaged to him. Oh but I know that you want something to play with
baby. I'll be around when he's not in town, I'll show you how you're
doing it wrong, I really love it when you tell me to stop. Oh it's turning
me on. You can tell me some lies about the good times that you've had,
but I've kissed your mother once and now I'm working on your Dad. Oh
baby, I'll be around when he's not in town, I'll show you how you're
doing it wrong, I really love it when you tell me to stop. Oh it's turning
me on. If you look under the bed then I can see my house from here, so
just lie against the wall and watch my conscience disappear. Now baby
I'll be around when he's not in town, I'll show you how you're doing it
wrong, I really love it when you tell me to stop. Oh it's turning me on. I
only come here cause I know it makes you sad yeah. I only do it cause I
know you know it's bad. Oh yes I know that it's ugly and it shouldn't
be like that. Oh but oh it's turning me on.back to top
Something Changed
I wrote the song two hours before we met. I didn't know your name or
what you looked like yet. Oh I could have stayed at home and gone to
bed. I could have gone to see a film instead. You might have changed
your mind and seen your friends life could have been very different then
but something changed. Do you believe that there's someone up above?
Does he have a timetable directing acts of love? Why did I write this
song on that day? Why did you touch my hand and softly say. Stop
asking questions that don't matter anyway. Just give us a kiss to
celebrate here today something changed. When we woke up that
morning we had no way of knowing that in a matter of hours we'd
change the way we were going. Where would I be now if we'd never
met. Would I be singing this song to someone else instead I dunno but
like you said something changed.back to top
Sorted For E's & Wizz
Oh is this the way they say the future's meant to feel? Or just 20,000
people standing in a field. And I don't quite understand just what this
feeling is. But that's okay 'cause we're all sorted out for E's and wizz.
And tell me when the spaceship lands 'cause all this has just got to
mean something. In the middle of the nite, it feels alright, but then
tommorow morning. Oh then you come down. Oh yeah the pirate radio
station told us what was going down. Got the tickets from some
mashed up bloke in Camden Town. Oh and no-one seems to know
exactly where it is. But that's okay 'cause we're all sorted out for E's
and wizz. At 4 o'clock the normal world seems very, very, very far
away. Alright. In the middle of the nite, it feels alright, but then
tommorow morning. Oh then you come down. Just keep on moving...
Everybody asks your name, they say we're all the same and it's "nice
one", "geezer" but that's as far as the conversation went. I lost my
friends, I dance alone, it's six o'clock I wanna go home. But it's "no
way", "not today", makes you wonder what it meant. And this hollow
feeling grows and grows and grows and grows, and you want to phone
your mother and say "Mother, I can never come home again 'cause I
seem to have left an important part of my brain somewhere, somewhere
in a field in Hampshire". Alright. In the middle of the nite, it feels alright,
but then tommorow morning. Oh then you come down. What if you
never come down?back to top
Underwear
Why don't you close the door and shut the curtains 'cos you're not
going anywhere. He's coming up the stairs and in a moment he'll want
to see your underwear. You couldn't stop it now. There's no way to get
out. He's standing far too near. How the hell did you get here.
Semi-naked in somebody else's room. I'd give my whole life to see it.
Just you stood there only in your underwear. If fashion is your trade
then when you're naked I guess you must be unemployed yeah. Cos
once it's underway there's no escaping the fact that you're a girl and
he's a boy. You couldn't stop it now. There's no way to get out. He's
standing much too near. How the hell did you get here. Semi-naked in
someone else's room. I'd give my whole life to see it. Just you stood
there only in your underwear. If you close your eyes and just remember
that this is what you wanted last night. So why is it so hard for you to
touch him. For you to go and give yourself to him? I couldn't stop it now.
There's no way to get out. He's standing much too near and how the
hell did you get here semi-naked in somebody else's room. I'd give my
whole life to see it. Just you stood there only in your underwear. Do, do
do do do. Do, do. Do, do. Do, do, do, do, do. Do, do. Do, do. Oh yeh I
want to see you. Want to see you only in your underwear. Har.back to top
Monday Morning
There's nothing to do so you just stay in bed,oh poor thing, why live in
the world when you can live in your head? Mmm when you can go out
late from Monday till Saturday turns into Sunday and now you're back
here at Monday so we can do it all over again. And you go aah ah ah
(etc.) and I want a refund, I want a light, I want a reason to make it thru
the night, alright. And so you finally left school, so now what are you
going to do? Now you're so grown up, yeah you're oh oh oh oh oh so
mature oh. Going out late from Monday, chuck up in the street on
Sunday, you don't want to live till Monday and have to do it all again.
and you go aah ah ah (etc.) I want a refund, I want a light, I want a
reason for all this night after night after night after night. Oh I know that
it's stupid but I just can't seem to spend a night at home 'cos my
friends left town and I'm here all alone ow. Oh yeah they say the past
must die for the future to be born, in that case die little me - ooh.
Stomach in, chest out, on your marks, get set, go. Now, now that you're
free, what are you going to be? And who are you going to see? And
where, where will you go and how will you know you didn't get it all
wrong. Is this the light of a new day dawning? A future bright that you
can walk in? No it's just another Monday morning. Do it all over again
oh baby. La la la la la la, (etc). Do do do do do do (etc.)back to top
Bar Italia
Now if you can stand I would like to take you by the hand, yeah and go
for a walk past people as they go to work. Oh, let's get out of this place
before they tell us that we've just died. Move, move quick, you've gotta
move. Come on it's through, come on it's time. Oh look at you, you,
you're looking so confused just what did you lose? If you can make an
order could you get me one. Two sugars would be great 'cos I'm fading
fast and it's nearly dawn. If they knocked down this place, this place,
it'd still look much better than you. Move, move quick, you've gotta
move. Come on it's through, come on it's time. Oh look at you, you,
you're looking so confused, what did you lose? Oh, it's ok it's just your
mind. If we get through this alive I'll meet you next week, same place,
same time. Oh move, move quick you've gotta move. Come on it's
through, come on it's time. Oh look at you, you, you're looking so
confused, what did you lose? That's what you get from clubbing it. You
can't go home and go to bed because it hasn't worn off yet and now it's
morning there's only one place we can go. It's around the corner in Soho
where other broken people go. Let's go.back to top
