all The Stranglers lyrics



Someone Like You
Your earthquake hit when I was living so peacefully
My mind was busy I had something to do
My world was planned and I was living so tranquilly
You turned me round just like a whirlpool
Someone like you makes me dizzy, someone like you
Someone like you drives me crazy, someone like you

Your hurricane blowing like there was no today
I was asleep alone with nothing to do
My roof was raised as I was snoring so comfortably
You shook me up just like a twister
Someone like you makes me dizzy, someone like you
Someone like you drives me crazy, someone like you

Alone at night I lie without any air
Then you arrive and always take me somewhere, what else can you do?

Someone like you makes me dizzy, someone like you
Someone like you drives me crazy, someone like you

Alone at night I lie without any air
Then you arrive and always take me somewhere, what else can you do?back to top
96 Tears
Stranglers - 96 Tears




Too Many Teardrops For One Heart To Be Crying
Too Many Teardrops For One Heart To Carry On
You're Way On Top Now Since You Left Me
You're Always Laughing Way Down At Me
But Watch Out Now I'm Gonna Get Down
And We'll Be Together For Just A Little While
And Then I'm Gonna Put You Way Down Here
And You'll Start Crying 96 Tears
Cry You're Gonna Cry

And When The Sun Comes Up I'll Be On Top
You'll Be Right Down There Looking Up
I'm Gonna Get You But I Know Now

You're Gonna Cry 96 Tears
You're Gonna Cry 96 Tears

You're Gonna Cry 96 Tears
You're Gonna Cry 96 Tears
You're Gonna Cry Cry Cry Cry Now
You're Gonna Cry Cry Cry Cry Now
Too Many Teardrops
All Night Long
Too Many Teardrops
Cry Cry Cry Cry Now
You're Gonna Cry Cry Cry Cry Now
96 Tears
All Night Long Now
You're Gonna Cry Cry Cry Cry Now
96 Tears
Cry Cry Cry Now
96 Tears
Cry Cry Cry Now
96 Tears
You're Gonna Cry 96 Tears
You're Gonna Cry 96 Tears
You're Gonna Cry Cry Cry Cry Now...back to top
In This Place
ahhhhh... (ahhhh...) ahhhhhhhh....

In this place I call home, there's a place where I'm alone
To speak with you now you're gone, now the autumn has come

ahhhhh... (ahhhh...) ahhhhhhhh....

In this place I call home, even though the leaves have gone
I can speak with you now and the winter will come
All the words that could have been said
And the ghosts we thought we'd carefully laid to rest have returned

ahhhhh... (ahhhh...) ahhhhhhhh....

In this place I call home, there's a time when I'm alone
To speak with you now you're gone, what will the spring bring along
All the words that could have been said
And the ghosts we thought we'd carefully laid to rest
Carefully laid to rest, carefully laid to rest have returned

ahhhhh... (ahhhh...) ahhhhhhhh....

In this place I call home, there's a place where I'm alone
To speak with you now you're gone and the summer's also gone
ahhhhh... (ahhhh...) ahhhhhhhh....back to top
Man of the Earth
The city blues they strike again
Another worker drops his pen
He wants to be done and out on the run
Away from the curse, he'd swap all his worth
To be a man of the earth
For 2 or 3 weeks of the year
An Easter bunny brings Christmas cheer
He's out of his head and toasting the dead
And feeling much worse, he'd swap all his worth
To be a man of the earth
To swap all his worth, to be a man of the earth
Words become the man if only he could write a sonnet
He'd place his life upon it to be a man of the earth
A man of the earth, he'd swap all his worth to be a man of the earth


The wife and kids are already there
They're polishing his wicker chair
It's looking so bleak at the end of the week
He'll be needing a nurse, he'd swap all his worth
To be a man of the earth, a man of the earth
Words become the man if only he could write a sonnet
He'd place his life upon it to be a man of the earth
A man of the earth, he'd swap all his worth to be a man of the earthback to top
Where I Live
Hey man, I like your beard and I like the way you serve that beer
I like the way your daughter smiles at me
Hey mister, could I have just one more beer?

I got two big balls, a cap and a bat
And I play with them all of the time
I got a million things I'd rather do, if only you say you'll stay mine
If only you say you'll stay mine, if only you say you'll stay mine
Yeah, this is the place where I live and the place where I love

Hey ma'amselle, fill up baby, I like the way you give me gas
Tell me, who is the man with the double barrelled gun? (my daddy)
I think I better move on fast
I got a big black car, a dog and a cat
And I play with them all of the time
I got a million things I'd rather do, if only you stay you'll stay mine
If only you say you'll stay mine, if only you stay you'll stay mine
Yeah, this is place where I live and the place where I love

The way the old church spire stabs the clouds
And when the old folks say, I'll have another drink to see
Me through the day, thank you JJ
Yeah, this is the place where I live and the place where I love

Hey, Mrs B, take a look at me, d'you really think I'm quite that bad?
Sometimes I say and do stupid things that only serve to make you sad
I got a motorcycle, an empty seat
And twenty years ahead of my time
I got a million things I'd rather do, if only you say you'll stay mine
If only you say you'll stay mine, if only you say you'll stay mine
Yeah, this is the place where I live and the place where I loveback to top
Never to Look Back
It's not that easy, never to look back
The years distort the lies we take for fact
I had a black shirt, but I wasn't one
All my loving is not enough for that

I had a black shirt, but I wasn't one
I had black thoughts but now they're undone
Thoughts are easy, and they're all I have
All my loving is not enough for that
All my loving is not enough for that

How could I think it was ever like this
The truth's the truth but did it ever exist
I tell myself, well never again
Never to look back, 'cos it's never the same
Never to look back

Thoughts are easy, and they're all I have
Life's not easy if all you do is fight

The truth is changed by the memories we have
All my loving is not enough for that
All my loving is not enough for that

How could I think it was ever like this
The truth's the truth but did it ever exist
I tell myself, well never again
Never to look back, 'cos it's never the same
Never to look backback to top
