Missing Lyrics
I've gotta stop faking it I've gotta start facing it I'm gonna take my final bow Then I'm gonna take my place in the crowd I know I'll get used to it I've gotta stop acting like a clown I've gotta start facing up to what I really am I've got to realize l'm just an ordinary man I think that I'll just settle down And take my place in the crowd I don't want to lie to myself any more Am I just a f...
Woke up this morning, started to sneeze Had a cigarette and a cup of tea I looked in the mirror, what did I see A nine stone weakling with knobbly knees I did my knees, bend press ups, touch my toes Had another sneeze and I blew my nose I looked in the mirror, at my pigeon chest I had to put on my clothes because it made me depressed Surely there must be a way For me to change the shape I?m in...
This is the age of machinery A mechanical nightmare The wonderful world of technology Napalm hydrogen bombs biological warfare This is the twentieth century But too much aggravation It's the age of insanity What has become of the green pleasant fields of Jerusalem Ain't got no ambition I'm just disillusioned I'm a twentieth century man but I don't want I don't wanna be here Mama besides she ca...
Bide my time, Everything will be in line, Mystic rhyme, Nine and three and five are mine, Memories, Past, future, now, Show me, Just where man's destiny will lie. Human race, Outa space, Travellers.

I've been waitin' for years to buy a brand new Cadillac But now that I've got one, I want to send it right back I can't afford the gas for my luxury limousine But even if I had the dough, no one's got no gasoline I went to my local dealer to see if he could set me straight He said there's a little gas goin' but you'd have to wait But he offered some red hot speed and some really high grade has...
One on the nose, one on the chin You bruise so easy, so why stay with him? He uses you just like a human punching bag But you don't complain, you're too scared to speak Anyway, it only really hurts you when you laugh and when you eat But you can't break the pattern, week after week The bruises show But he must be special otherwise you'd just get up and go You'll never let us know, exactly how ...
Tears would fall like the falling rain, There would be a sea. But you don't have to cry to prove your love, Just believe in me. 'cause a little bit of sunlight is all that I want from you, A little bit of sunlight, Is all that I want, All that I want, All that I want from you. A man who can't live with cloudy skies, Should only wait and see. Soon all the clouds will disappear, And leave just y...
You've come a long way from the runny-nosed and scruffy kid I knew You had such good ways I can remember the little things that always made you smile They made you happy Now you think you're wiser because you're older and you think That money buys everything And you think you need no one to guide you But you're still a long way from home You've come a long way, you're self-assured and dressed ...
Hello you, hello me, hello people we used to be Isn't it strange, we never changed We've been through it all yet we're still the same And I know it's a miracle we still go Before you go, there's something you ought to know There's a guy in my block, he lives for rock He plays records day and night And when he feels down, he puts some rock 'n' roll on And it makes him feel alright And when he f...
'Cause he gets up in the morning and he goes to work at nine And he comes back home at five-thirty, gets the same train every time 'Cause his world is built 'round punctuality, it never fails And he's oh, so good, and he's oh, so fine And he's oh, so healthy in his body and his mind He's a well respected man about town Doing the best things so conservatively And his mother goes to meetings whi...

I'm too terrified to walk out of my own front door They're demonstrating outside, I think they're gonna start the third world war And I've been to my local head shrinker, to help classify my disease He said it's one of the many cases of acute schizophrenia he sees Well the milkman's a spy, and the grocer keeps on following me And the woman next door's an undercover for the K.G.B. The man from ...
The first time that I saw, you were modestly waiting for a bus Now you're driving around in hired limousines and you talk so upper class The cost is high, but it's not the only price you ultimately pay Add it up, you might have got some money but you lost me on the way Add it up, oh Add it up, oh Add it up, oh Add it up, oh Ah, Gucci, Gucci, Gucci, Gucci Cartier, Cartier Gucci, Gucci, Gucci, G...

Life grinds on day after day. In the city streets and motorways. The tension spreads just like a plague, Killing reason on the way. Like wildfire it spreads through the nation Chocking us with aggravation. Who needs it? the aggravation the daily goddam hassle. It's a bummer, who gives a dam? Bumper to bumper in the traffic jam.

Now I wanna tell you a little story About the old demon alcohol Yes indeed my little chickadee Here's a sad and woeful story About a middle class executive Who enjoyed a life of prominence and position But the pressures at the office And his socialite engagements And his selfish wife's fanatical ambition It turned him to the booze And he got mixed up with a floozy And she led him to a life of ...

America, the land of the free, the home of the brave That's what I thought before I toured there You see, I've got myself being seduced by the sheer americana of it all And I'd seen their images on television Of lee harvey oswald, john f. kennedy's assassination And I thought quot;america is a violent placequot; And america is keen to trap you Like you had giant tentacles that wrapped themselv...

On reflection, it was not all wine on the wall It was not all cuts and bruises Or the pulling out of hair and the bloodying of nose And the tearing off of clothes, although It was really animal, truly animal There were times when there was Absolute compassion in the air Though it was really animal, truly animal It could not compare to times we cared And were in control and less emotional While...
This world is big and wild and half insane Take me where real animals are playing Just a dirty old shack, where the hound dogs bark That we called our home, I want to be back there Among the cats and dogs and the pigs and the goats On animal farm My animal home On animal farm My animal home While I lay my head upon my pillow Little girl, come play beneath my window Though she's far from home S...

I think I'm sophisticated 'Cause I'm living my life like a good homosapien But all around me, everybody's multiplying And they're walking round like flies man So I'm no better than the animals sitting in their cages In the zoo man Because compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees I am an Apeman I think I'm so educated and I'm so civilized 'Cause I'm a strict vegetarian But with the o...

Sunday afternoon there's something special It's just like another world Jogging in the park is my excuse To look at all the little girls I'm not a flasher in a rain coat I'm not a dirty old man I'm not gonna snatch you from your mother I'm an art lover, come to daddy Ah, come to daddy, come to daddy Pretty little legs, I want to draw them Like a Degas ballerina Pure white skin, like porcelain ...
My art school babe with your palette-knives and brushes, Painted face, egyptian eye-brows and bright red lips Pale white make-up, tight black skirts like juliette greco And there's me quoting pretentious chat up lines From marcel proust, jean cocteau and jean-paul sartre Sitting by a gasfire in a drafty bedsit The art school babe quotes william blake and she rolls a joint And I think quot;oh o...
Arthur was born just a plain simple man In a plain simple working class position Though the world was hard and it's ways were set He was young and he had so much ambition All the way he was overtaken By the people who make the big decisions But he tried and he tried for a better life And a way to improve his own condition If only life were easy it would be such fun Things would be more equal a...

You go down the pub, you wear make up And old Dad's trousers, why don't you tidy up? You talk like a docker but you act like a queer You drink champagne then complain it's too dear You try so hard not to follow any trends Then you cry in your beer And say you've got no friends But is it any wonder you've got no friends? It's not the make up or the way you ought to dress It's not your appearanc...

From the dew-soaked hedge creeps a crawly caterpillar When the dawn begins to crack, it's all part of my autumn almanac Breeze blows leaves of a musty-colored yellow So I sweep them in my sack, yes, yes, yes, it's my autumn almanac Friday evenings, people get together Hiding from the weather, tea and toasted Buttered currant buns, can't compensate For lack of sun because the summer's all gone ...

A well known groover, rock 'n' roll user Wanted to be a star But he failed the blues and he's back to loser Playing folk in a country bar Reggae music didn't seem to satisfy his needs He couldn't handle modern jazz 'cause they play it in difficult keys But now he's found a music he can call his own Some people call it junk, but he don't care, he's found a home He's the prince of the punks and ...

Something's happenin' but I'm just gonna turn a blind eye. If I see no evil, ask no questions, and I hear no lies. Can't communicate with minds that are small, With some people it's like talkin' to the wall And a fellow who walks away, Lives to battle another day. And I've really got no appetite For a fight, Not tonight. All I want is a quiet life. Anything for a quiet life. No ambition to roc...
A misty shadow spread its wings And covered all the ground And even though the sun was out The rain came pouring down And all the light had disappeared And faded in the gloom There was no hope, no reasoning This rainy day in June The eagle spread its mighty wings Pounced upon its pray And all the skies, so brilliant blue Turned suddenly to gray The cherished things are perishing And buried in ...

From all the repetition day after day All the repetition it...

Look at all the people around me, Same old faces joining the queue. For return to waterloo, Return to waterloo. Started off this morning as usual, Checkin' out the mail and all the bills to pay.

Will I get away, will I see it through, On the return to waterlo...

Rosemary rose, Nature sure gave you such a beautiful nose. 'though you're not beautiful as someone would know, That rosemary rose, Has eyes of blue, And someone is treasuring a picture of you, Taken on a holiday when you were just three, My sweet rosemary.

Sung by spiv, flash floosies Spiv: I was born a slum gutter infantile, Brute-force educated, delinquent juvenile. I am a product of mass produced factory fodder, Streets full of tenement blocks, rat infested filth and squalor.
