I don't care if you don't respect me. I don't care if you don't like the
Sound of it. I'm not a building. Would you erect me? So always lock the
Door and fool around.
I don't mind if you think I'm primative. So don't go looking for a reason
If I was rare would you collect me? Who cares? It's time to multiply. 'Cos
I just wanna make babies with you. Alright? I just wanna make babies, all
Night. I just wanna make babies, make babies. Babies, babies, with you.
I don't think I'm chauvanistic, do you? Just as I am bubbling with lust. I
Just wanna open up your curtains. And let the light in, blow away the dust.
Dear Mother I'm lying on a white hot blanket, wishing you were here. We're
A thousand miles from Cairo and it's taken us a year to get this far. Dear
I've grown a beard in the last three weeks and I can't see nothing but
Sand. You wouldn't recognize me mother, but I know you'd understand. Dear
We spend the nights under canvas dreaming of ice cold beer and we spend the
Days in the desert I miss you mother dear.
Riding on Joey's camel (how did you escape?) Riding on Joey's camel (how
Did you escape?) Dear Mother we found the Ten Commandments. Mother, just
Lonnie Garamond was disturbed by the face
That looked back at him from the bathroom mirror. He looked older than he
It was as if all forty-two years of his life
Had suddenly leap frogged over each other
And crash landed in his face.
He was middle-aged and the truth hit him
Like a man with no parachute. The eyes were golfballs, the skin hung on his
Face like a cheap suit. And the trapdoor of greasy black frizz
Power Behind The Throne
All hands to the rescue. All hands on deck. Women and chidren first. Women
And chidren first.
Cold feet in the bedroom. Cold moor in the bed. I've seen the starship
Rollin' in. I wanna talk instead. About the way that you treat me and the
Round in the wheel. How you made a reservation for you're changing the way.
So how can I love you, when you make me feel, like a hmm and a weasel at
The end of a day. End of conversation.
On this occasion. I have no reservation. It's saying, she's the power
Behind the throne. She's the power behind the throne. She's the power
Behind the throne. She's the power behind the throne. She's the power...
Ready For Ralph
The room is ready for Ralph. The room is ready for Ralph. The room is ready
They've readied the room the room is ready for Ralph. Come in Ralph.
Ralph here is the room ready is the room ready for Ralph? Ralph here is the
Room ready is the room ready for Ralph? The room is ready for Ralph, Ralph,
The room is ready for Ralph the room is ready for Ralph we've readied the
Room Ralph and the room is ready for Ralph. Come in Ralph.
Ralph's not here is the room ready is the room ready for Rose? Ralph's not
Here is the room ready is the room ready for Rose? No Rose the room's only
Ready for Ralph Rose we've readied the room for Ralph The room is ready for
Ralph Rose The room is ready for Ralph. Come in Ralph, come in Ralph.
Sale Of The Century
If they auctioned my heart on The Sale of the Century, would it still be
There at the end of the show? Would the Quizmaster-man call it a booby
Prize, 'cos nobody wanted to know.
If they auctioned my heart would you
Open the bidding? Or would you stand at the back and blend into the crowd?
When the hammer comes down, would you still be around to watch me going,
Going, I'm gone.
I've gone Yvonne. You're left alone. You'll find my keys on the table. I
Never wrote a goodbye note. I didn't think I'd be able, to put down the
Midnight Saturday sat in the dark, watching the ceiling falling apart. The
Air-conditioner's been busted for weeks, so the smell of cooking seeps
Through the floor.
I can't eat no more. They want me to be as light as a feather, so the
Doctor's wired my jaws together. Now I'm locked in the bedroom away from
The food. So I lie on my back in the dark in the nude. I can't eat no more.
I got to use a straw.
But if the Devil dragged me down to the kitchen I wouldn't put up a fight.
I'd gladly sign away my soul for a T-bone steak tonight.
I feel like Kojak sitting in a Cadillac. I gotta eat, I gotta eat a
Ding dong, ding dong Hi! Hey! Sorry we're late. You're not, you're the
First Oh Great! Hey listen I'm sorry but we can't stay late so we parked in
The middle at the top by the gate on the grass with the crass Volkswagen
Estate. Whose is it? Mine! You're kidding, it's great!
(Jesus) I just love the way he's used the car like an empty canvas and let
The rust eat itself into the overall design with such devastating
Spontaneity David you're ignoring me, come here. Who do you have to fuck to
Get a drink 'round here? It's art David, neo-functional mannerism cerebral,
But oblique it's one star four owner shagged out chic one star four owner
Shagged out chic one star four owner shagged out chic one star four owner
If a man, A, who weighs 11 stone leaves from his home at 8:30 in the
Morning in a car whose consumption is 16.25 mpg at an average speed of 40
M.p.h. to his office which is 12 miles away. And he stops for a coffee on
The way for 15 minutes and also puts air in one of his tyres which has a
Slow puncture letting out air at a rate of 2 lbs per square inch per mile
Travelled when the car is moving at 32 m.p.h. and he picks up a hitch-hiker
B who weighs 14 stone plus suitcase But hitch-hiker B who is a political
Activist distributes leaflets from his suitcase each of which weigh an
Ounce at the scale of 2 leaflets per person at every bus stop and every
Vehicle on either side of them at every red traffic light during the
Under Your Thumb
I was standing in the station, being pounded by the rain. So I chose the
Last compartment of a stationary train. I felt someone get in behind me,
But I never caught their eye, but I thought I heard I heard a woman's
Voice, whispering goodbye.
So I lay down in the darkness, with the beer and coffee stains and I stared
Out at the thunder. through the broken window panes.
And although the storm was booming, like an engine in the sky. I'm sure I
Heard a woman's voice cry...
Don't wanna be under your thumb forever.
Don't wanna be under your thumb forever.
I should have told you, all I wanted was to have some fun. But you wanted
Me to be the permanent one. Yes you did.
Now when we're in the movies or the back of a car, you always stop me when
I go too far.
I should have known, you'd always keep me waiting for those wedding bells.
Those wedding bells.
Oh we could talk all night, but you won't understand (don't leave me in the
The only words you want to hear are "Do you take this man?" (in church
Today). Does the lull in conversation, mean the penny's droppin'.
