Joyriders
We like driving on a Saturday night, past the Leisure Centre, left at the
lights. We don't look for trouble but if it comes we don't run. Looking
out for trouble is what we call fun. Hey you, you in the Jesus sandals,
wouldn't you like to come over and watch some vandals smashing up
someone's home? We can't help it, we're so thick we can't think, can't
think of anything but shit, sleep and drink. Oh, and we like women; "up
the women" we say and if we get lucky we might even meet some one
day. Hey you, you in the Jesus sandals...etc. Mister, we just want your
car 'cos we're taking a girl to the reservoir. Oh, all the papers say it's a
tragedy but don't you want to come and see? Mister we want your
car...etc. (x 3)back to top
Lipgloss
No wonder you're looking thin, when all that you live on is lipgloss and
cigarettes. And scraps at the end of the day when he's given the rest to
sommetaeone with long black hair. All those nights in, making such a mess
of the bed. Oh you never ever want to go home. And he wants you so
you may as well hang around for a while, call your dad on the phone. He
changed his mind last Monday, so you've gotta leave by Sunday, yeah.
You've lost your lipgloss Honey, Oh yeah. Now nothing you do can turn
him on, there's something wrong. You had it once but now it's gone.
And you feel such a fool for laughing at bad jokes and putting up with all
of his friends and kissing in public. What are they gonna say when they
run into you again? That your stomach looks bigger and your hair is a
mess and your eyes are just holes in your face. And it rains every day
and when it doesn't, the sun makes you feel worse anyway. He
changed his mind last Monday, now you've gotta leave by Sunday,
yeah. You've lost your lipgloss Honey, Oh yeah. Now nothing you do
can turn him on, there's something wrong. You had it once but now it's
gone. Though you knew there was no way it was gonna last for ever, it
still shook you when he told you in a letter that he didn't wanna see
you. You nearly lost your mind, Oh yeah. You've lost your lipgloss
Honey, Oh yeah. Now nothing you do can turn him on, there's
something wrong. You had it once but now it's gone, Oh yeah. You've
lost your lipgloss Honey, Oh yeah, Now nothing you do can turn him on,
there's something wrong. You had it once but now it's gone. Oh yeah.back to top
Acrylic Afternoons
I fell asleep on your sofa and had a dream about a small child in
dungarees who caught his hands in the doors of the Paris metro. Then
my face cracked open and you were there, you were there dressed in
green, saying something obscene. But that's why I came here in the
first place, Oh well that and the tea. Can I stay here lying under the
table together with you now? Can I hold you? Forever in acrylic
afternoons I want to hold you tight whilst children play outside and wait
for their mothers to finish with lovers and call them inside for their tea.
Cushions and TV and the table set for tea. One for you, one for me.
Come and lie down on the settee in that green jumper, you can have
anything you want and the clock is saying it's half past four but you
know I want to stay a little more. Can I stay here lying under the
table...etc. On a pink quilted eiderdown, I want to pull your knickers
down. Net curtains blow slightly in the breeze. Lemonade light filtering
thru the trees. It's so soft and it's warm. Just another cup of tea please
(one lump thanks). Can I stay here lying under the table...etc. Oh Kevin,
Shane, Julie, Diane, Wayne, Frank, Heather, Rachel, Chelsea, Leanne,
come home. It's time for your tea.back to top
Have you seen her lately?
First you let him in your bed. Now he's moved inside your head. And he
directs all the dreams you are dreaming. I saw a friend of yours today,
she called me over just to say "I dunno if you've seen her lately but God
she's looking rough". No don't go round to see him tonite, he's already
made such a mess of your life. Find something else to do with your time
& do it quickly while you've still got the chance. Do you think he'll fall
apart? Do you think you'll break his heart? If you leave him on his own.
You are dreaming 'cos he can fasten all his clothes, tie his laces, blow
his nose. It's time to teach him how to walk, yeah, teach your baby how
to walk away. No don't go round to see him tonite...etc. You're not his
mother & you're not sister & brother. He's not even your lover. He's
just a piece of luggage you should throw away. No don't go round
tonite...etc. No don't go round tonite, you'll never make it right. He's
already made such a mess of your life. Find something else to do with
your time & do it quickly while you've still got the chance.back to top
Babies
Well it happened years ago when you lived on Stanhope Road. We
listened to your sister when she came home from school 'cos she was
two years older and she had boys in her room. We listened outside and
heard her. Alright. Well that was alright for a while but soon I wanted
more. I want to see as well as hear and so I hid inside her wardrobe.
And she came round four and she was with some kid called David from
the garage up the road I listened outside I heard her. Alright. Oh I want
to take you home. I want to give you children. You might be my
girlfriend, yeah. When I saw you next day I really couldn't tell 'cos you
might go and tell your mother. And so you went with Neve and Neve
was coming on and I thought I heard you laughing when his Mum and
Dad were gone. I listened outside, I heard you. Alright. Oh I want to
take you home...etc. Well I guess it couldn't last too long. I came home
one day and all her things were gone, I fell asleep inside. I never heard
her come. And then she opened up her wardrobe and I had to get it on.
Oh, listen we were on the bed when you came home, I heard you stop
outside the door. I know you won't believe it's true, I only went with
her 'cos she looks like you. Oh I want to take you home...etc.back to top
She's a lady
Are you trying to put me on? I turned around and it was gone. Did I
leave it in your car? On a table in a bar? Or in your bed between the
sheets? The places where we used to meet. Wherever love has gone I
need to know. 'Cos she's a woman, Oh yeah, she's a woman. Ma Ma
Ma Ma Ma Ma she's a lady. And I just love the way she moves, the
way she moves, Watch her. When you left I didn't know how I was
going to forget you. I was hanging by a thread and then I met her.
Selling pictures of herself to German business men. Well, that's all she
wants to do. Come on, come on. I don't want to try too hard. I don't
want to wait too long. I don't want to live alone with all this crap that
pulls me down. Oh, tell me now, how would it feel if I could touch you
once again. Where have you gone, where have you gone. The moon has
gone down on the sun, Oh yeah. I know that you're coming home. You
wouldn't leave me on my own. Everybody can't you see, she's coming
back to me. Whilst you were gone I got along. I didn't die, I carried on
& I went drinking every night just so I could feel alright. Stayed in bed
all day to feel OK. I felt OK. Oh I felt sick & tired, yes I did. She lived at
her father's place, played his records though they jumped. Wore her
body back to front. I tried hard to make it work, kissed her where she
said it hurt but I was always underneath. She's a woman...etc. I don't
know why you pretend that it causes you pain, when you know very
well you're going to do it again. You're going to do it again & again &
again but can you keep it going all nite long? I know it's going to
happen. It might not be today. It might not be tomorrow or even the day
after but some time soon, you'll see, you're going to come back to me.
Whilst you were gone...etc. Whilst you were gone I got along. I didn't
die, I carried on. Oh yeah I went with other women, what else can I
say? I guess I kind of missed you whilst you were away. Whilst you
were gone. (stop).back to top
Happy Endings
Well, imagine it's a film & you're the star & pretty soon we're coming
to the part where you realise that you should give your heart, Oh give
your heart to me. Now the orchestra begins to make a sound that goes
round & round & round & round & round & round & round & round &
round again & we kiss to violins. Well some sad people might believe
in that I guess but we know better don't we? We know all about the
mess. The aftermath of our affair is lying all around and I can't clear it
away. No. And d'you think that it's so easy to find? Somebody who is
just your kind? Well it might take you a little time but I'm going to have
to try. Oh yeah I'm gonna try. And I know no-one can ever know which
way to head but don't you remember that you once said that you liked
happy endings? And no-one can ever know if it's going to work but if
you try then you might get your happy ending.back to top
Do You Remember The First Time?
You say you've got to go home 'cos he's sitting on his own again this
evening. I know you're gonna let him bore your pants off again. Oh God,
it's half past eight you'll be late. You say you've never been sure tho' it
makes good sense for you to be together. Still you bought a toy that can
reach the places he never goes & now it's getting late. He's so
straight. Do you remember the first time? I can't remember a worse
time but you know that we've changed so much since then, oh yeah,
we've grown. Now I don't care what you're doing, no I don't care if you
screw him just as long as you save a piece for me, oh yeah now, you
say you've got to go home. Well at least there's someone there that
you can talk to and you never have to face up to the nite on your own.
Jesus, it must be great to be straight. Do you remember the first
time?..etc.back to top
Pink Glove
You'd better watch what you're wearing if you want him to come round
and see you tonight. Ma Ma Ma. He doesn't care what it looks like just
as long as it's pink and it's tight. Ma Ma Ma. Oooh, so what should
you do? Should you stop being you? Just to be how he wants you? Oooh,
say you'll visit your mum then tell me that you'll come and meet me in
the afternoon. He's got your heart, he's got control. Oh God, you might
as well know. I know you're never going to be with me but if you try
sometimes then maybe you could get it right first time. I realise that
you'll never leave him but every now and then in the evening. You could
get it right first time. I know you think I've got to be joking but if you
touch him again then I'm going. You got it right first time. Get it right
first time. Now you've done it once now he wants you to wear your pink
glove all the time. Ma Ma Ma. Oooh, so what should you do? Should
you stop being you? Just to be how he wants you. Oooh, say you'll visit
your mum then tell me that you'll come and meet me in the afternoon.
He's got your heart, he's got control. Oh God, you might as well know.
I know you're never going to be with me...etc. Oh you'll always be
together 'cos he gets you up in leather. So you know what to wear at
the end of the day and I'd laugh if I saw but I'm out of the way. Yeah
it's too long ago, shouldn't care anymore but I wanted to know; is it as
good as before? Yeah it's hard to believe that you'd go for that stuff, all
those baby-doll nighties with synthetic fluff. Yeah it looks pretty good
and it fits you OK, wear your pink glove babe he put it on the wrong
way. Jesus. I know you're never going to be with me...etc.back to top
Someone Like The Moon
She likes to watch the moon as it travels through the sky 'cos she's
heard that it's romantic, though she really can't see why. Someone
should have helped her through the day. Someone like the moon. So she
drinks a cup of coffee & telephones a friend & she asks if she can make
it so this night will never end. Someone should have helped her through
the day...etc. But the light comes and the day bleeds through the sky &
the sun, the sun makes it hard to get through & the radio only plays
love songs so she cries, though she knows it's such a bad thing to do.
In the evening it gets better & she thinks how it's not right that
someone so stupid can so easily screw up your life. Someone should
have helped her through the day...etc. But the light came and the day
bled through the sky & the sun, the sun made it hard to get through &
the radio only played love songs so she cried, though she knew it's
such a bad thing to do. Can't you see? Can't you see? Someone should
have helped her through the day. Someone like the moon.back to top
