He's a one trick pony

One trick is all that horse can do

He does one trick only

It's the principal source of his revenue

And when he steps into the spotlight

You can feel the heat of his heart

Come rising through

Could have gone straight for "Set The House Ablaze" by The Jam, but no....

"Under a dark and silent moon

Where lovers sigh and singers croon

Looking for a natural kind of joy

Secrets shared while cool lips kiss

Their subterranean hearts ablaze

You may find a natural kind of joy

So whose lost the right

To be alone in the night

To go looking for a natural kind of joy

Between the sheets

Beneath the stars

Soft to touch in each others arms

Looking for a natural kind of joy

So whose lost a right

To be alone in the night

To go searching for a natural kind of joy

Nothings ever what it seems

The last laugh could be on you"

"Natural Kind Of Joy" by That Petrol Emotion, one of my favourite under-rated bands of yesteryear.

"Ablaze" is also the pseudonomic surname of one of my favourite under-rated people: Karren Ablaze, whose fanzine "Ablaze!" was one of the cultural high points of the late 80s/early 90s UK alt.rock/indie scene.

:bow:Rocky Horror Picture Show ~ The Time Warp :bow:

(Riff Raff)

It's astounding

Time is fleeting

Madness takes its toll

But listen closely

(Magenta)

Not for very much longer

(Riff Raff)

I've got to keep control

I remember doing the Time Warp

Drinking those moments when

The blackness would hit me

(Riff and Magenta)

And the void would be calling

(Chorus)

Let's do the Time Warp again

Let's do the Time Warp again

(Criminologist)

It's just a jump to the left

(Chorus)

And then a step to the right

(Criminologist)

Put your hands on your hips

(Chorus)

And bring your knees in tight

But it's the pelvic thrust

That really drives you insane

Let's do the Time Warp again

Let's do the Time Warp again

(Magenta)

It's so dreamy

Oh, fantasy free me

So you can't see me

No, not at all

In another dimension

With voyeuristic intention

Well secluded, I see all

(Riff Raff)

With a bit of a mind flip

(Magenta)

You're into the time slip

(Riff Raff)

And nothing can ever be the same

(Magenta)

You're spaced out on sensation

(Riff Raff)

Like you're under sedation

(Chorus)

Let's do the Time Warp again

Let's do the Time Warp again

(Columbia)

Well I was walking down the street

Just a having a think

When a snake of a guy gave me an evil wink

He shook-a me up, he took me by surprise

He had a pick up truck and the devil's eyes

He stared at me and I felt a change

Time meant nothing, never would again

(Chorus)

Let's do the Time Warp again

Let's do the Time Warp again

(Criminologist)

It's just a jump to the left

(Chorus)

And then a step to the right

(Criminologist)

Put your hands on your hips

(Chorus)

And bring your knees in tight

But it's the pelvic thrust

That really drives you insane

Let's do the Time Warp again

Let's do the Time Warp again

A system in the making,

self healing for the blind,

sitting in the waiting-room

of the patient mind....

But there isn't any answer

the consciousness can't quote

when the loaded dice of chance

are there rattling in the throat.

"Police Officer" - Smiley Culture Give it a listen; it's dead good!

Everytime me drive me car police a stop me superstar

True me drive a fiat and a Mercs, Sell weh me Lancia

So more time when me go a Esat London fe check some cockneys

Them a tell me to produce insureance, licence and M.O.T.

but me say........

Police Officer no give me producer

Police Officer no bother give me producerPolice Officer no give me producer

Police Offcer no bother give me producer

To everybody in the dance I and I dedicate this style yah

Whether you a lawbreaker or you a informer

You could be a P.C., C.I.D. or a inspector

Me no charge for murder, Failing to produce is weh me charge for

So.........

Police Officer no give me producer

Policer Officer no bother give me producer

Ca' me a Smiley Culture. Used to drive up a Lancia

And me a drive car from me a teenager

Police Officer me is a expert driver

So if you see me no shout and no holler

No stand up in the road with a torch and try pull me over

Ca' if it's a dark night by yourself you will get run over

No come behind me in a rover and start flash your flasher

Or come rev rev rev it beside me 'pon your scooter

Ca' me is a man who would a just faster

And when me feel like it me would a pull up on a corner

Before you ask any question me already have an answer

And any answer you get me wan' you know it would be formula

So...........

Police Officer no give me producer

Police Officer no bother give me producer

Police Officer no give me producer

Policer Officer no bother give me producer

On me way a People's Club me pass through Victoria

And through me a entertainer say no tax 'pon me window

As me go through the lights the whole road take over

And as me drive nearer could see clearer it was a Black Maria

With six or seven plain clothes policer officers

Them didn't look the type of policer me could give a fiver

First thing that come into me head: Good thing me hide me ganja!

Next thing that happen them a wave, in other words pull me over

All me could a do is sigh and shrug me shoulder

And as them approach me start wind down me window

Me a go tell you how me answer...........

Every question them fire..................

"Well,Wha wha wha what's your name then son?"

My name Smiley Culture

"Yeah, Where do you think you're coming from lad?"

From seeing me mother

"What's the registration number of the car then?"

I can't remember

"What you got in the boot then son?"

A cassette recorder. Would you like to have a look?

"Shut your bloody mouth. We ask. You answer

Now take the keys out of the car and step out of the motor

Me and my colleagues have got a few questions to ask ya

You'll be on your way as soon as we get an answer"

As me come out of the car me a think and me a wonder

What police officers could want with Smiley Culture

Ca' with torch them a search the interior

But whatever them look for me hiding place superior

But the way them a asearch me had to ask them what they a look for

But me try handle them coarse. Them just handle me coarser

Then one draw handcuff, Put him hand 'pon me shoulder

And say: "We aint got time to waste, We don't think you have neither

Just give us what we want - the real sensimillia"

Me never had no choice me draw out me ganja

As me do that start rub them hands together

One say: "Shall we put him in the van or in the back of the Rover?"

Me say: You can't do that ca' me name Smiley Culture

"You what? Did you do that record 'Cockney Translator?'"

In the reggae charts number one was it's number

"My kids love it and so does my mother!

Tell you what I'll do . A favour for a favour

Just sign your autograph on this piece of paper"

Me cut him short and just draw out me Parker

'Pon the producer me just sign Smiley Culture

Then never lie. Them never bother..... arrest me or take me ganja!

Apples peaches pumpkin pie

Who's afraid to holler I?

That's a game we used to play.

Hide and seek was its name.

Oh ready or not, hear I come,

Gee that used to be such fun.

I always used to find a hiding place,

Times have changed.

Well I'm one step behind you, but still I can't find you.

Apple peaches pumpkin pie,

You were young and so was I.

Now that we've grown up it seems

You just keep ignoring me.
