Sometimes
Stranglers - Sometimes




Someday I'm Gonna Smack Your Face
Someday I'm Gonna Smack Your Face
Somebody's Gonna Call Your Bluff
Somebody's Gonna Treat You Rough
Sometimes Only One Way Out
I've Got To Fight

Sometimes I Get To Feel So Mean
Sometimes I Get To Feel So Mean
Sometimes You Look Like You're Too Clean
Sometimes I See The In-between
Sometimes Only One Way
I've got To Fight

You're Way Past Your Station
Beat You Honey Till You Drop

You're Way Past Your Station
It's Useless Asking You To Stop
I've Got Morbid Fascination
Beat You Honey Till You Drop

Sometimes You're Gonna Get Some Stick
Sometimes You're Gonna Get Some Stick
Somebody's Standing In Our Way
Somebody's Gonna Have To Pay
Sometimes Only One Way
I've Got To Fightback to top
Goodbye Toulouse
Stranglers - Goodbye Toulouse




Your Streets Were Paved With Love
Your Skies Were Blue Goodbye
Toulouse

I Walked Your Streets In Fear
I Washed Your Streets With Tears
Toulouse

Goodbye Toulouse

Your Cafes Tell The Tale
Of Saddened Millionaires
Toulouse

A Million Dreams I Had
A Million Lies I Told
Toulouse

Goodbye Toulouse

Paula Leaned Out To Me
From Her High Balcony
Toulouse

I Will Return Someday
So You Can Hear Me Say
Farewell

Goodbye Toulouse
Goodbye Toulouse
Goodbye Toulouseback to top
London Lady
Stranglers - London Lady




Little Lady With Dingwall's Bullshit
You're So Stupid Effected Brainwaves
Little Lady What Really Happens
When You See Mirrors You Get The Shivers

Aaaah!

Making Love To The Mersey Tunnel
With A Sausage, Have You Ever Been To Liverpool?
Please Don't Talk Much It Burns My Ears
Tonight You've Talked For A Thousand Years

Plastic's Real When You're Real Sick
Plastic's Real When You're Real Sick
Plastic's Real When You're Real Sick
Plastic's Real When You're Real Sick
Plastic's Real When You're Real Sick
Plastic's Real When You're Real Sick
Plastic's Real When You're Real Sick
Plastic's Real When You're Real Sick

Tell Me What You've Got To Look So Pleased About
Tell Me What You've Got To Look So Pleased About

Oh London Lady Why Did You Lay Me?
Your Head Is Crowded With The Names You've Hounded
The Lines Around Your Eyes They Show Me
You Realise The Party's Over London Lady
Party's Over London Lady

Tell Me What You've Got To Look So Pleased About
Tell Me What You've Got To Look So Pleased Aboutback to top
Princess of the Streets
Stranglers - Princess Of The Streets




She's Gone And Left Me
I Don't Know Why
That Girl She's Crazy
She Made Me Cry
She's Gone And Left Me
I Don't Know Why

Yeah She's The Queen Of The Street
What A Piece Of Meat

She's Real Good Looking
She Makes Me Sigh
Blue Jeans And Leather
Her Heels Are High
She's Real Good Looking
She Makes Me Sigh

Yeah She's The Queen Of The Street
What A Special Treat

She's No Lady
She'll Stab You In The Back
She's No Lady
She's Princess Of The Pack

With Words Of Fire
She'll Make You Small
With Eyes That Smile
She'll Make You Tall
With Words Of Fire
She'll Make You Small
But You Would Rather Wait A Year
Till She Gave You A Call

She's Gone And Left Me
I Don't Know Why
That Girl She's Crazy
She Made Me Cry
She's Gone And Left Me
I Don't Know Why

But She's The Queen Of The Street
What A Piece Of Meat

She's No Lady
She'll Stab You In The Back
She's No Lady
She's Princess Of The Packback to top
Hanging Around
Stranglers - Hanging Around




Big Girl In The Red Dress
She's Trying To Inpress Us
And She's Got The Barley Fever
But She Doesn't Make A Sound
She's Just Hanging Around
She's Just Hanging Around

Down The Court Road Early
With The Hustlers Big N' Burly
There's A Million Of Them Selling
And The Buyers Can Be Found
They're Just Hanging Around
They're Just Hanging Around

Christ Has Told His Mother
Christ He Told Her Not To Bother
'Cos He's Alright In The City
'Cos He's High Above The Ground
He's Just Hanging Around (Hanging Around)
He's Just Hanging Around (Hanging Around)
He's Just Hanging Around (Hanging Around)
He's Just Hanging Around (Hanging Around)

One Of 'Em Comes Closer
He's Got A Monkey On His Shoulder
And the Monkey's Getting Grinner
But His Eyes Are On The Ground
He's Just Hanging Around
He's Just Hanging Around

I'm Moving In The Coleherne
With The Leather All Around Me
And The Sweat Is Getting Steamy
But Their Eyes Are On The Ground
They're Just Hanging Around
They're Just Hanging Around

Christ Has Told His Mother
Christ He Told Her Not To Bother
'Cos He's Alright In The City
'Cos He's High Above The Ground
He's Just Hanging Around (Hanging Around)
He's Just Hanging Around (Hanging Around)
He's Just Hanging Around (Hanging Around)
He's Just Hanging Around (Hanging Around)

Christ Has Told His Mother
Christ He Told Her Not To Bother
'Cos He's Alright In The City
'Cos He's High Above The Ground
He's Just Hanging Around (Hanging Around)
He's Just Hanging Around (Hanging Around)
He's Just Hanging Around (Hanging Around)

Peaches
Stranglers - Peaches




Strolling Along Minding My Own Business
Well There Goes A Girl And A Half
She's Got Me Going Up And Down
She's Got Me Going Up And Down
Walking On The Beaches Looking At the Peaches

Well I Got The Notion Girl
That You Got Some Sun Tan Lotion In That Bottle Of Yours
Spread It All Over My Pealing Skin Baby
That Feels Real Good
All This Skirt
Lapping up The Sun
Lap Me Up
Why Don't You Come On And
Lap Me Up
Walking On The Beaches Looking At the Peaches

Well There Goes Another One
Just Lying Down On The Sand Dunes
I'd Better Go Take A Swim
And See If I Can Cool Down A Little Bit
'Cos you And Me Woman
We Got A Lotta Things On Our Minds
(You Know What I Mean)
Walking On The Beaches Looking At the Peaches

Well You Just Take A look Over Their
Where?
There
Is She Trying To Get Out Of That Clitoris
Liberation For Women
That's What I Preach
Preacher Man
Walking On The Beaches Looking At the Peaches

Oh Shit!
There Goes Tha Charabang
Looks Like I'm Gonna Be Stuck Here The Whole Summer
Well What A Bummer
I Can Think Of A Lot Worse Places To Be
Like Down In The Street
Or Down In The Sewer
Or Even On The End Of A Skewer

Down On The Beaches Just Looking At All The Peaches...back to top
(Get A) Grip (On Yourself)
Stranglers - Get A Grip On Yourself




Didn't Have The Money Round To Buy A Morry Thou
Been Around And Seen A Lot To Shake Me Anyhow
Begged And Borrowed Sometimes, I Admit I Even Stole
The Worst Crime That I Ever Did Was Play In Rock 'n' Roll

But The Money's No Good
Just Get A Grip On Yourself
But The Money's No Good
Just Get A Grip On Yourself

Suffering Convictions On A Two-Way Stretch Inside
The Air In Here Is Pretty Thin, I Think I'll Go Outside
Committed For Insanity And Crimes Against The Soul
The Worst Crime That I Ever Did Was Play Some Rock 'n' Roll

But The Money's No Good
Just Get A Grip On Yourself
But The Money's No Good
Just Get A Grip On Yourself
And You Should Know

Now I Find From Week To Week The Sentence Sticking Fast
Turn The Corner, Rub My Eyes And Hope The World Will Last
Stranger From Another Planet Welcome To Our Hole
Just Strap On Your Guitar And We'll Play Some Rock 'n' Roll

But The Money's No Good
Just Get A Grip On Yourself
But The Money's No Good
Just Get A Grip On Yourself
And You Should Knowback to top
Ugly
Stranglers - Ugly




I Could Have
Read A Poem Called
Ozymandias
To Her Instead
I Lived For The Moment
It Was A Futile
Gesture Anyway
I Was Here
And She Was Here
And Being Broad
Of Minds And Hips
We Did The Only Thing Possible

I Guess I Shouldn't Have Strangled Her To Death But
I Had To Go To Work And She Had Laced My Coffee With Acid

Normally I Wouldn't Have Minded
But I'm Allergic To Sulphuric Acid
Besides She Had Acne
And If You've Got Acne, Well,
I Apologise For Disliking It Intensely,
But It's Understandable That Ugly People Have Got Complexes
I Mean It Seems To Me
That Ugly People Don't Have A Chance

It's Only The Children Of The Fucking Wealthy Who Tend To Be Good Looking

An Ugly Fart
Attracts A Good-Looking
Chick If He's Got Money
An Ugly Fart
Attracts A Good-Looking
Chick If He's Got Money
An Ugly Fart
Attracts A Good-Looking
Chick If He's Got Money

It's Different For Jews Somehow.

I'd Like To See
A Passionate Film Between
The Two Ugliest
People In The World.
When I Say Ugly
I Don't Mean Rough Looking
I Mean Hideous.

Don't Tell Me That
Aesthetics Are
Subjective You
Just Know The Truth
When You See It
Whatever It Is

Down in the Sewer
Stranglers - Down In The Sewer




Down In The Sewer
Picking Up On A Lot Of Empty Coca Cola Cans
And There Sure Are A Lot Of Them Around Here.

How Did I Get Down Here?
Well That's A Long Story
I Should Have Stayed Down Home Out On The Farm
And Kept My Tootsies Warm Instead Of Freezing Them Off Down Here.

There's Lots Of Rats Down Here
You Can See The Whites Of Their Eyes
They Got Sharp Teeth
Deep Breath
And Lots Of Diseases.

People Say You Shouldn't Stay Down Here Too Long
Lose Your Sense Of Light Dark
Lose Your Sense Of Smell.

I'll Tell You What I'm Gonna Do
Gonna Make Love To A Water Rat Or Two
And Breed A Family
They'll Be Called The Survivors.

You Know Why? (No)
Because They're Gonna Survive
I'll See You In The Sewer Darling
