See this hat, 'twas my cat,

My evening wear - vampire bat,

These white slippers are albino

African endangered rhino.

Grizzly bear underwear,

Turtles' necks, I've got my share,

Beret of poodle, on my noodle

It shall rest,

Try my red robin suit,

It comes one breast or two,

See my vest, see my vest,

See my vest.

See my Vest ~ CM Burns

The Jam - "News Of The World"

Punk rock! Power, pop!

Read about the things that happen throughout the world

Dont be believe in everything you see or hear

The neighbours talk day in day out about the goings on

They tell us what they want - they dont give an inch

Look at the pictures taken by the cameras they cannot lie

The truth is in what you see - not what you read

Little men tapping things out - points of view

Remember their views are not the gospel truth

Dont believe it all

Find out for yourself

Check before you spread

News of the world

Never doubt

Never ask

Never moan

Never search

Never find

Never know

Each morning our key to the world comes through the door

More than often its just a comic, not much more

Dont take it too serious - not many do

Read between the lines and youll find the truth

Read all about it, read all about it - news of the world

Word Up: "magazine"

My father sits at night with no lights on

his cigarette glows in the dark

The living room is still

I walk by, no remark.

I tip-toe past the master bedroom where

my mother reads her magazine

I hear her call "sweet dreams"

but I forget how to dream

yes he did. Well done, grasshopper. :grin:

That was when he was with the Refreshments. The story goes that the band played the song live in front of family and friends, and told everybody to totally go crazy about it so it would sound to the producers of "King Of The Hill" like it was a really great tune that everybody loved. Evidently it worked. :grin:

Word Up: wireless

I heard you on the wireless back in Fifty Two

Lying awake intent at tuning in on you.

If I was young it didn't stop you coming through.

Oh-a oh

The Clash - "Career Opportunities

The offered me the office, offered me the


They said I'd better take anything they'd got

Do you wanna make tea at the BBC?

Do you wanna be, do you really wanna be a cop?

Ch) Career opportunities - the ones that never knock

Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock

Career opportunities, the ones that never knock

I hate the army an' I hate the R.A.F.

I don't wanna go fighting in the tropical heat

I hate the civil service rules

And I won't open letter bombs for you

Ch) Career opportunities- the ones that never knock, etc....

Bus driver....ambulance man....ticket inspector

I don't understand!

They're gonna have to introduce conscription

They're gonna have to take away my prescription

If they wanna get me making toys

If they wanna get me, well, I got no choice

Ch) Career opportunities, etc.




They ain't never gonna knock

Working on a t-bone steak a la carte

Flying over to the golden state

Ah when the pilot told us in thirteen minutes

He would set us at the terminal gate

Swing low chariot come down easy

Taxi to the terminal zone

Cut your engines and cool your wings

And let me make it to the telephone

Promised Land-Elvis Presley

you used to write my name

on the back of your notebook

all adorned with smiles and hearts and stars

but lately it would appear

that you found yourself a black Magic Marker

just to make absolutely sure

that no one ever thought that you'd take me this far

Pay attention to the cracked streets

and the broken homes

Some call it slums, some call it nice

I wanna take you through a wasteland

I like to call my home...
