Skin Deep
Stranglers - Skin Deep




Many People
Tell You That They're Your Friend
You Believe Them
You Need Them
For What's Round The River Bend
Make Sure That You're
Recieving The Signals They Send
Cos Brother
You've Only Got Two Hands To Lend

Maybe
There's Someone Who Makes You Weep
And Some Nights
Loom Ahead
When You're Asleep
Some Days
There's Things On Your Mind You Should Keep
Sometimes
It's Tougher To Look Than To Leap

Better Watch Out For The Skin Deep
Better Watch Out For The Skin Deep
(Brother Watch Out) Watch Out For The Skin Deep
(Brother Watch Out) Watch Out For The Skin Deep
Better Watch Out For The Skin Deep

One Day
The Track That You're Climbing Gets Steep
Your Emotions Are Frayed
And Your Nerves Are Starting To Creep
Just Remember The Days
As Long As The Time That You Keep
Brother You Better Watch Out For The Skin Deep

Better Watch Out For The Skin Deep
Better Watch Out For The Skin Deep
(Brother Watch Out) Watch Out For The Skin Deep
(Brother Watch Out) Watch Out For The Skin Deep
Better Watch Out For The Skin Deep
(Brother Watch Out) Watch Out For The Skin Deep
(Brother Watch Out) Watch Out For The Skin Deep
Better Watch Out For The Skin Deepback to top

Let me down easy, let me down easy

Let me down easy, let me down easy


When I rest my weary head after all the words are said

When my eyelids close with the weight of a hundred years

Please let me down easy, let me down easy


My boat can slip away into a calmer sea, let me down easy

I know there'll be nothing to fear



Let me down easy, let me down easy

Let me down easy, let me down easy



My body slips away out into weightlessness, let me down easy

Now I know that there's nothing to fear


Let me down easy, let me down easy

Let me down easy, let me down easy



When I rest my aching heart, after it's been torn apart

When my tears have flowed on the tide of a hundred seas

Please let me down easy, let me down easy

Affection slips away into my memory, let me down easy

There's a better time waiting for me



Let me down easy, let me down easy

Let me down easy, let me down easyback to top
No Mercy
Everyday you're working like a slave
Sweating buckets hoping that you get it right
Will it be as tough tomorrow?
Have to wait and see
Life shows no mercy
Everyday your love is getting warmer
Just look at her and love her did vou Qet it right
Will she soothe your brow with kisses only meant for thee ?
She'll show no mercy
She'll show no mercy
And when you hold her close to you
Just when you're feeling good it's true
Life shows no mercy
Life shows no mercy
Life shows no mercy
Life shows no mercy
Everybody has sorne secret wishes
Just keep your fingers crossed maybe they'll all come true
But don't worry if they just remain a fantasy
Life shows no mercy
Everybody seems the same all over
The search is on for love and comfort constantly
If it comes your way tomorrow count vourself lucky
Life shows no mercy
Life shows no mercy
And when you hold her close to you
Just when you're feeling good it's true
Life shows no mercy
Life shows no mercy
Life shows no mercy
Life shows no mercyback to top
Uptown
Gonna grab my crop gonna grab my hat
Gotta change my situation
I'm gonna pick a steed who's been built for speed
Who's a flat-racing sensation
I'm racing Uptown gotta saddle up
So I take my seat I'm off to the meet
Don't know when I'm getting back
I don't care who wins as the race begins
It's a pleasure at the track
I'm racing Uptown gotta saddle up
I'm racing Uptown gotta win that cup
We're all meeting at the track uptown
We're all meeting at the track uptown
I'm racing Uptown gotta saddle up
I'm racing Uptown gotta win that cup
You gotta rein in strong if the race is long
You'll be hoping for a place
Can you believe your luck
You're uptown and stuck
But every jockey won the race
We're all meeting at the track uptown
We're all meeting at the track uptown
I'm racing Uptown gotta saddle up
I'm racing Uptown gotta win that cupback to top

You could have wasted yourself in a plane in the air
But lead poisoning from your daddy, to me just didn't seem fair
Committing the crime of taking your time

You're laughing, we're carving your name in a tree for the kids to see
We hear you, we fear your ecstasy, you paid the penalty



You could have wasted away on the floor of a hotel room
With the hand of a working girl to lead you into your tomb
Committing the crime of taking your time

You're laughing, we're carving your name in a tree for the kids to see
We hear you, we fear your ecstasy, you paid the penalty

You could have hung your hat on a pretenders lustful fame
But you refused to lay it down, it took your old man to live in shame
For committing the crime of taking your time

You're laughing, we're carving your name in a tree for the kids to see
We hear you, we fear your ecstasy, you paid the penaltyback to top
Souls
Just like an Indian I climb, offering sacrifice
Up to the temple on the hill, can human heart suffice
Can I survive the world alone, without a well within my home
Without the one idol's love shining down upon me
She eats souls
She eats souls

All that I'm offering's the heart, that's all I have to give
With all this heart surrounding me, my deity forgives
And if she needs it every day, I'll climb the steps my savage way
Uttering incantations up up above me
She eats souls
She eats souls

souls...

Can I survive the world alone, without a well within my home
Without the one idol's love shining down upon me
She eats souls
She eats soulsback to top
Mad Hatter
He's mad he's mad
He's mad he's mad
You may have read the book
You might have seen the film
But I've seen it with my eyes
Was it tweedle-dum? Was it tweedle-dee?
But Isaw through his disguise
There was a Cheshire cat next to a water rat
And a JuJu awful wise
We were sat to eat now was it trick or treat?
We were in for a surprise
Here comes the Mad Hatter
Here comes the Mad Hatter
Here comes the Mad Hatter
He doesn't need a hat He's not crazy eves
And he rolls them round the group
He's got stories tall and a winning smile
As he then surveys his troups
Then he'll about a lot of things
In a song you've never heard
But it sounds so sweet He gets up on his feet
And he's looking for the word
Here comes the Mad Hatter
Here comes the Mad Hatter
Here comes the Mad Hatter
Mad as the Mad Hatter
Mad as the Mad Hatter
Mad as the Mad Hatter
It went on oh quite late as I went through the gate
And I began my journey back
I was glad to know that I'd seen the show
That I'd found a happy jack
Because they're getting rare, we never get our share
Seem to be a dying breed
But they're so much fun Laughter's on the run
As the Hatter plants the seed
Here comes the Mad Hatter
Here comes the Mad Hatter
Here comes the Mad Hatter
Mad as the Mad Hatter
Mad as the Mad Hatter
Mad as the Mad Hatterback to top
