Curfew
Stranglers - Curfew




The Enemy Has Cut Down All Of The Power
London South Of The Thames Is Invaded
Westminster Is Razed Down To The Ground
The Government Has Fled
The Government Has Fled
The Government Has Fled For Scotland Today

It Becomes Black And White
Is It True What They Say?
They Turn The Day Into Night
Black And White Becomes

The Government Has Fled Into Thin Air
What's Left Of Our Troops Has Joined The Scots
To Form In Defence Across Of The North
Stay In Your Homes
Stay In Your Homes
Be Off The Streets By Nightfall

It Becomes Black And White
Is It True What They Say?
They Turn The Day Into Night
Black And White Becomes

Germany Failed To Protect All Her Borders
She Had Grown Soft With The American Dream
The Men From The Steppes Delivered Their Vacuum
A New Kind Of Freedom
Freedom's A Chain
Maybe I'll Find Love When There's Nothing To Do

It Becomes Black And White
Is It True What They Say?
They Turn The Day Into Night
Black And White Becomesback to top
Threatened
Stranglers - Threatened




I Don't Think Things Can Be
Pretty Or Ugly
All That You Can Say
Is If Your Existence Is Not Threatened In Any Way

You Are Quite Safe With Me
I've Got My Very Own Philosophy
All That You Can Say
Is If Your Existence Is Not Threatened In Any Way
Threatened In Any Way
Threatened In Any Way
Threatened In Any Way
Threatened In Any Way

Man Killed By Industry
Man Killed By Luxury
Man Killed By Falling Tree
Man Killed By Sanity

Bring Me A Piece Of My Mummy
She Was Quite Close To Meback to top
In the Shadows
Stranglers - In The Shadows




When You're Walking On The Streets At Night
Turn Around And Die Of Fright
What's That In The Shadows
What's That In The Shadows

Walking Down The Streets At Night
Turn Around And You Can Die Of Fright
Walking On The Streets At Night
Turn Around And Die Of Fright
What's That In The Shadows
What's That In The Shadows

Is It A Dog
Is It A Cat
Is It A Dog
What Do You Think Of That
When You're Walking On The Streets At Night
Turn Around And Die Of Fright
What's That In The Shadows
What's That In The Shadows

Is It A Dog
Is It A Cat
Is It A Dog
What Do You Think Of That

When You're Walking On The Streets At Night
Moving Shiny Bright
Walking On The... Night
When You're Walking On The Streets At Night
Don't Look Around You
Don't Look Around You

When You're Walking On The Streets At Night
When You Turn Around And Die Of Fright
Who's There In The Shadows

What's That In The Shadows
What's That In The Shadows
Don't Look Around Youback to top
Do You Wanna
Stranglers - Do You Wanna




Do You Wanna Marry A Lumberjack
Do You Wanna Freeze To Death
Do You Wanna Be A Beauty Queen
And Rule The Kingdom

Let Out All The Prisoners
Cause There's A Jubilee

Do You Wanna Marry A Company Director
Do You Wanna Go To Work
Do You Wanna Be A Beauty Queen
And Rule The Kingdom

Let Out All The Prisoners
Cause There's A Jubilee

Do You Wanna Marry Money
Do You Wanna Use Your Body
Do You Wanna Stay At Home
On The Range

Do You Wanna Blow Your Mind
Do You Wanna Blow Your Hymen
Do You Wanna Blow Exams
Do You Wanna Fix My Muffler
It's Got A Hole In Itback to top
Enough Time
Stranglers - Enough Time




What's Gonna Happen When The Sky Goes Black?
What Will You Do When The Sea Comes Back?
What If There's No Way Of Moving Back?
What When Your Face Falls Apart?
Have You Got Enough Time?
Have You Got Enough Time?
Have You Got Enough Time?

You're Drifting Out Like A Child Who's Lost
Who's Looking For A Better Way
You're Moving Like A Coin In The Air
What When Your Face Falls Apart?
Have You Got Enough Time?
Have You Got Enough Time?
Have You Got Enough Time?

You're Maybe Looking For A Sign Of Life
You Hope It's Gonna Save Your Life
What Will You Do To Restore Your Sight?
What When Your Face Falls Apart?
Have You Got Enough Time?
Have You Got Enough Time?
Have You Got Enough Time?

Have You Got Enough Time?...back to top
Tank
Stranglers - Tank




I Can Sign For 1 2 3 Or 4
Get Three Weeks Off In A Year Or More
Save Up And Get My Very Own SLR
Cos I Can Drive (Drive) My Very Own Tank
Yes I Can Drive (Drive) My Very Own Tank
Yes I Can Drive (Drive) My Very Own Tank
Yes I Can Drive (Drive) My Very Own Tank

Can You Seen The Bullet's High Velocity
It Can Blow A Man's Arm Off At The Count Of Three
If I Get My Hands On One Of Those
I'm Something To Watch Out For
I Can Drive (Drive) My Very Own Tank
Yes I Can
Yes I Can

Don't Care Whereabouts They Send Me Now
Send Pictures Postcards To My Old Mother And Father
So When I Come Home They'll Have Someone To Be Proud Of
I Can Drive (Drive) My Very Own Tank
Yes I Can Drive (Drive) My Very Own Tank
Yes I Can Drive (Drive) My Very Own Tank
Yes I Can Drive (Drive) My Very Own Tank
Yes I Can Maim (Maim)back to top
Nice 'N' Sleazy
Stranglers - Nice 'n' Sleazy




We Came Across The West Sea
We Didn't Have Much Idea Of The
Kind Of Climate Waiting
We Used Our Hands For Guidance
Like The Children Of A Preacher
Like A Dry Tree Seeking Water
Or A Daughter
Nice 'N' Sleazy
Nice 'N' Sleazy Does It

Nice 'N' Sleazy
Nice 'N' Sleazy
Does It Does It
Does It Every Time

An Angel Came From Outside
Had No Halo Had No Father
With A Coat Of Many Colours
He Spoke Of Brothers Many
Wine And Women Song A Plenty
He Began To Write A Chapter
In History
Nice 'N' Sleazy
Nice 'N' Sleazy Does It

Outside Tokyo
Stranglers - Outside Tokyo




Somewhere Outside Tokyo
Invented Time
Someone In A Factory
Invented Time
If People Wanted Proof To Carry On
They'd Like To Buy One

50 Million Watches With A
Strap To Sell
50 Million Watches With A
Strap To Sell
If People Wanted Proof To Carry On
They'd Like To Buy One

If They Should Ever Sell Out
That Would Be The End Of (Time)

Toiler on the Sea
Stranglers - Toiler On The Sea




I Had A Woman Ship I Took Her Overseas
She Left Her Hold Unlocked
I Had To Find A Dock
I Was A Toiler On The Sea
I Was A Toiler On The Sea
I Was A Toiler On The Sea
I Was A Toiler On The Sea

We Didn't Use Cruel Words
To Navigate Cruel Seas
The Wind Was Biting Hard
At Times I Had To Scream
I Was A Toiler On The Sea
I Was A Toiler On The Sea
I Was A Toiler On The Sea
I Was A Toiler On The Sea

And When We Reached The Land
We Went Aground On The Rocks
Became A Wreck In The Sand
Became A Home For A Flock
We Ventured Overland
Fought With The Aliens
The Young Ones Used Their Hands
Pointed The Way to A Flock
A Flock Of Seagulls
A Flock Of Seagulls

Then We Retraced Our Steps
Rebuilt The Woman Ship
I Took Her Back Up North
And Lost Her In The Fog
I Was A Toiler On The Sea...back to top
