all The Stranglers lyrics



Just Like Nothing on Earth
A woman in Wellington wet her whistle
With a wild man from way back when

She sucked her thumb and she held her head
For the man she didn't ken
A Nip in Nippon napped a nod

And knew Nomad near the nearside window of his Mitsubishi

His kid was scared he said he thought it was something new

Just like nothing on earth

Just like nothing on earth

Just like nothing on earth

A man on the main motor mile mesmerised much
monkey magic meandering piecemeal

You know UFOs utilise euphoric united ecstatic
Fantastic traumatic burning rubber blubber

Blackout checkout for philandering sons of magic women

His brain was blazed and amazed he said he thought
It was something new

Just like nothing on earth

Just like nothing on earth

Just like nothing on earth



Just like nothing on earth

Just like nothing on earth

Just...


Like...

Nothing...

On... Earth...

On... Earth...

Just like nothing on earth

Just like nothing on earth

It was just like nothing on EEEEEWWWWWRRRRGGGTH!back to top

(play riff throughout the verses)

Somewhere in Africa, somewhere in Rome

People are sleeping awake in their homes

Waiting for shepherds to tend to their sheep

Their disappointments lay piled in a corner heap


chorus:
A second co - ming will come in. A second co - ming will come in.

A second co - ming will come in. A second co - ming will come in.


Turn on the sets and then wait for the show

Will he have long hair and what will he know?

Will he tell jokes or will he make us cry?

If we write to him will he send back a reply?


(chorus)
A second co-ming will come in
A second co-ming will come in
A second co-ming will come in
A second co-ming will come in
(it will come in!)





Like everybody I wait for the day

Like everybody I'll send him away

He may be ugly and have problem hair

Even speak funny and make all the people stare

A second co - ming will come in

A second co - ming will come in

A second co - ming will come in

A second co - ming will come in

One reported, long ago

No one heard and laughed as though

It twas some product of mad man's minds

Not clear enough to cure the blind

And in all the corners of the globe

They'll shield their eyes from shining robes


Defying science, all the laws

The like of them not seen before

Their gifts much worse than the three kings

Rewriting future, changing thoughts

And all the battles that we fought

Are these the devil, are they four?back to top

If ever you had counted

The centuries you threw away

And all the lies that you had started

And all the chances thrown away

If I set sail for new horizons

Could I still leave you waiting here?

I would chase just one set of chances

The others would be thrown away


Even though we tried, time wasn't on our side

Then there came the day we threw it all away

Thrown away, thrown away, thrown away



My winter nights are so much colder

Than yours could ever be

I wish I hadn't been a traveller

I would not have had to go away

When all is said and all is over

When all is just a memory

Our ships will stay for just a moment

Leaving false Gods and hypocrisy



Even though we tried, time wasn't on our side

Then there came the day we threw it all away

Thrown away, thrown away, thrown away

Even though we tried, time wasn't on our side

Then there came the day we threw it all away

Thrown away, thrown away, thrown away

Thrown away, thrown away, thrown away


repeat 'thrown away' bit until fade...back to top
Top Secret
Stranglers - Top Secret




Sits In His Room At Night
Flits Back And Forth Round The World
As He Calls In The Moonlight
Sees All The Empires Fall
Writes It All Down With His Pen
In Free Hand Once For All

He Sees Something To Tell But
He's Got No One To Tell
The Top Secret
And He Means It

All Day His Mind Troubles
Him As He Cures All The Ills
Of The World With His Knife
Centuries Pass When He Dies
And The Answers Get Buried
And Mistook For Life

He Sees Something To Tell But
He's Got No One To Tell
The Top Secret
And He Means It

All Day His Mind Troubles
Him As He Cures All The Ills
Of The World...back to top
