Vegas Two Times
1.So it started with
The immigration information bare
You gotta know
Gambling flow
Then to the studio

2. So we posted at
The ground floor, front door,
Car hire, room for four,
We gotta go
Rambling slow
Then to the LA Marquis
All the imitation folk,
We gotta go

Now were leaving,
L A S Vegas Two Times
Crazy horse too spent us dry
Vietnam Vet Taxi ride,
Come again we'll make you fly
Vietnam Vet Taxi ride,
Crazy horse too spent us dry

Lying in the Sun
Wish I could lie in the sun,
Same things as anyone,
Wish I could lie down there,
With my feet high in the air.

I'd have a drink in my hand,
Read words from a newspaper stand,
Wish I could lie in the sun,
Wish I could fly like everyone.

Same things as anyone x2

My skins crawling up the wall,
Into the ocean Id love to fall,
I here the sounds but they aint the same,
As feeling them with your two feet away.

Theres always more worse off than me,
Suppose Im lucky I can even see,
All the people I'd like to be,
Passing me by everyday in the street.

Same things as anyone x2

But you burn me up,
You paint my skin,
In bad designs,
That aint even in.

And here I am in the shade on the street,
Asking people for money to eat,
What did I ever do to deserve this?
Did I kill a child or something worse?

Same things as anyone

Whats the reason?
Maybe make you feel,
How much more fortunate,
You are than me.back to top
Mr. Writer
You line 'em up, forgot your shoes
Your own name's on your wall, and you should have known
You fly around in planes that bring you down
To meet me, who loves you, let me crash into the ground
Are you surrounded, you don't even know me
Would you like to stone me?
Mr. writer...
Why don't you tell it like it is
Why don't you tell it like it really is
Before you go on home

I used to treat you right, give you my time
But when I turn my back on you, then you do what you do
You've just enough on my own view, education to perform
I'd like to shoot you on
And when you go home with you on your own
What do you really do?
Mr. writer...
Why don't you tell it like it is
Why don't you tell it like it really is
Before you go on home
And when you go home with you on your own
What do you even know?
Mr. writer...
Why don't you tell it like it is
Why don't you tell it like it really is
Before you go on home
Mr. writer...
Why don't you tell it like it really is
Why don't you tell it like it always is
Before you go on home
Mr. writer...
Won't you tell it like it really is
Why don't you tell it like it always is
Before you go on home...back to top
Step on My Old Size Nines
I'd like to know what its all about
Whats out there?
Am I gonna get old and laugh
About something
Will I get me a boy or a girl
Or not either
Will a get what I want from this world
Im a daydreamer

CHORUS
Then I watch the old couples dance
Step on my old size nines
And I'll take you round.

I'd like to know what your'e all about
Whats up there?
Are you gonna get old and laugh
Without a care
Will you get you a boy or a girl
Or not either
Will you get what you want from this world
A daydreamer

CHORUS

I'd like to know what were all about
We all have done
Am I gonna get old and laugh
With someone
Will I get me a boy and a girl
Or not either
Will a get what I want from this world
Im a daydreamer

Have a Nice Day
San francisco bay
Past pier thirty nine
Early p.m.
Can't remember what time
Got the waiting cab
Stopped at the red light
Address, unsure of
But it turned out just right

It started straight off
Coming here is hell
That's his first words
We asked what he meant
He said where ya' from?
We told him our lot
When ya' take a holiday
Is this what you want?

So have a nice day
Have a nice day x3

Lie around all day
Have a drink to chase
Yourself and tourists, yeah
That's what I hate
He said we're going wrong
We've all become the same
We dress the same ways
Only our accents change

So have a nice day
Have a nice day x3

Swim in the ocean
That be my dish
I drive around all day
And kill processed fish
It's all money gum
No artists anymore
You're only in it now
To make more, more, more

So have a nice day
Have a nice day x3

Have a nice day x3back to top
Nice to Be Out
He asked me 'so where have you been? '
Let me think now let me see
I was stood once where hitler's feet stood
When he made a speech in nuremburg in '38
When he tried to build the perfect race he said
'black men ain't gonna run along side our perfect sons'

There's dallas to the library
The place they ended kennedy
I stood were oswald took his shot
In my opinion there's a bigger plot
Cost less back into the left, the picket fence, the better bet
Paris came and summer went
The tunnels now a flower bed.

The famous turf that made geoff hurst
The vodka stops to quench my thirst
The golden gate stroke alcatrez
The fat man failed to get us passed
Is jimmy's corner in 'raging bull'
De niro's jokes and bottle pills
Elvis tales from mr wood.
Would any richard burton if you could

The tourists stare at tourist stops
One more picture one more got
Another a top up for a change
It makes you think, I makes you sane
Talking more about yourself
There's a mirror to have a check
Checks are always passing through
Some depart but a lot come too

The restaurant talk of pick your teeth
Bite your tongue oh chewy meat'
Sleep or drink or drink to sleep
One more week and we will meet
We talk of what we haven't done
Since we departed back a month
We argue while we have to shout
All in all it's nice to be outback to top
Watch Them Fly Sundays
I'd just like to say
I remember the day
I first woke with you

Some days I have to admit
The way we happened to meet
Was strange 'cos it was new

Not drinking no more
Not drinking no less
Not sleeping at all
Never in the same bed
Undressed at the bar
Engraved bench in the park
We'd watch them fly Sundays

Fly birds round my head again
Laughed at the words you said
I pushed the boat back to you
I flew from the rain again
Killed you with what I said
You already knew

Not thinking no more
Not drinking no less
Not sleeping at all
Never in the same bed
Undressed at the bar
Engraved bench in the park
We'd watch them fly Sundays

They say if something
Should fly away
And it fly's back to you again
Then it is yoursback to top
Everyday I Think of Money
I drive a truck, it carries money
And everyday, I dream up my fantasies
Yesterday, I bought my beach house
A little place just off the coast of France
Everyday, I think of money
Everyday, I think of running

I love my truck, I love my family
Stacked in the back, the good life surrounds me
Could tie my right hand man
And put him some place
Then I'd ditch the truck
And buy a new face
Everyday, I think of money
Everyday, I think of someway

It can't buy you love
It can't give you a soul
Can pick you up
Can down you low
Can drag you out, of the hole
You dug
Yourself
Out of ... again

Sat in a truck, it carries convicts
My hands are bound, to the seat by handcuffs
Tomorrow, I'll maybe walk around the yard
Or paint in my cell, and hate imprisonment
Everyday I think of money
Everyday I miss my familyback to top
Maybe
Maybe one thing
Maybe something
Maybe nothing
All I know is friend
It's nothing new

Maybe it's me
What is to be?
Maybe lucky
All I ask is where
We're s'posed to be

I give a lot
I take a lot
It's nothing new to me

Maybe you've grown
Am I so wrong
How long's too long
All I want is us to be happy

Maybe moving
Always proving
Am I losing
All that's meant to be?
That's meant to be?

Ya hear a lot
Ya told a lot
It's nothing new to me

Maybe laughing
Something lacking
Always sometimes
All I hear is how, it's meant to be

Maybe learning
Always searching
Am I asking
Things I'll know too soon?
I'll know too soon

We talk a lot
Don't do a lot
It's nothing new to me

I give a lot
I take a lot

It's nothing new to me
It's nothing new to me
It's nothing new to meback to top
Caravan Holiday
Seven day holiday in the rain, it's June
At the time we were plain old me and you
It didn't matter that the sky came down
I never really felt like going out
Seven days watching rain inside with you

Saturday watched the game you fried our food
Nothing busy nothing easy but something you
It didn't matter that we couldn't eat out
My ship sank and my shoes were damp
Seven days hearing rain inside with you

There's always time to complain about the weather
Seasons change in a day just like each other
But we wait for summer
Seven day holiday in the rain with you

Lie awake drinking late is all that's left to do
Not a sound but the rain on the pale blue roof
It didn't matter that we couldn't sleep out
I never really felt like sleeping rough
Seven day holiday drinking dry with you

There's always time to complain about the weather
Seasons change in a day just like each other
But we wait for summer
Seven day holiday in the rain with you
Seven day holiday in the rain with youback to top
Rooftop
Standing on a rooftop
Trying to clear my mind
I only came up to look
But now there's such a crowd

I don't feel that bad
Can't help but laugh
And they cry out
They say jump and I say how high?

I feel my body blowing
From every side to side
My mind can't help but knowing...
What it feels like to fly

I don't feel that bad
Can't help but laugh
But they cry out
They say jump and I say how high?
They say jump and I say I might

And they cry out
And they cry out

Say jump and I say I might
Say jump and I say I'll try
Say jump and I say I'll say goodbye
Say jump and I say how high

High, high, fly, fly

I'm just standing on the edge of
Something I should try to hide from
I don't know much but I know something
I need to try and find me a way
Try I always come out fighting
I don't feel I should deny me
Can't help knowing what is down there
Feels like I should fly now for them

I'm fascinated, mis-educated, it's reincarnation
Of my imagination
I'm far away, from here today
It's where I'll stay if I get my way
It's lying awake, that makes me sane
But it makes me sick but I can't change againback to top
