"Dickie Davies Eyes" - Half Man Half Biscuit

Mention the Lord of the Rings just once more,

And I'll more than likely kill you.

"Moorcock, Moorcock, Michael Moorcock"

you fervently moan.

Is this a wok that you shove down my throat,

Or are you just pleased to see me?

Brian Moore's head looks uncannily like London Planetarium.

Chorus:

And all those people

Who you, romantically,

Like to still believe are alive,

Are dead!

So I'll wipe my snot

On the arm of your chair

As you put another Roger Dean poster

On the wall.

God, I could murder a Cadbury's Flake,

Then I guess you wouldn't let me into heaven.

Or maybe you would 'cause their adverts promote oral sex!

A Romany bint in a field with her paints,

Suggesting we faint at her beauty,

But she's got Dickie Davies Eyes...

Chorus x 2

Just to be the man who walked 1,000 miles

To fall down at your do-o-or

All I Need ~ Air

All I Need Is A Little Time

To Get Behind The Sun And Cast My Weight.

All I Need Is A Peace Of This Mind.

Then I Can Celebrate.

All In All, There's Something To Give.

All In All, There's Something To Do.

All In All, There's Someone To Live

With You...

I'm Away.

I'm Away.

All I Need Is A Little Sign

To Get Behind The Sun And Cast This Weight Of Mine.

All I Need Is The Place To Find.

And There I'll Celebrate.

All In All, There's Something To Give.

All In All, There's Something To Do.

All In All, There's Someone To Live

With You...

I'm Away.

I'm Away.

"Monkey" - Low

Oh my my

Little white lies

I swear I'm gonna make it right

This time

It's not the radio

Turn it way down low

Telling me things I do not know I know

Tonight you will be mine

Tonight the monkey dies

Tonight you will be mine

Tonight the monkey dies

Now who's to blame

You used to be the same

Now you won't let me speak your name

What a shame

It's a suicide

Shut up and drive

We're never going to make the light

but it's all right

Tonight you will be mine

Tonight the monkey dies

Tonight you will be mine

Tonight the monkey dies

(repeat chorus)

"Low" - Cracker

"Sometimes I wanna take you down

Sometimes I wanna get you low

Brush your hair back from your eyes

Take you down let the river flow

Sometimes I go and walk the street

Behind the green sheet of glass

A million miles below their feet

A million miles, a million miles

I'll be with you girl

Like being low

Hey hey hey like being stoned

I'll be with you girl

Like being low

Hey hey hey like being stoned

A million poppies gonna make me sleep

Just one rose and knows your name

The fruit is rusting on the vine

The fruit is calling from the trees

Hey don't you wanna go down

Like some junkie cosmonaut

A million miles below their feet

A million miles, a million miles

I'll be with you girl

Like being low

Hey hey hey like being stoned

I'll be with you girl

Like being low

Hey hey hey like being stoned

Blue blue is the sun

Brown brown is the sky

Green green of her eyes

A million miles, a million miles

Hey hey don't you wanna go down

Like some disgraced cosmonaut

A million miles below their feet

A million miles, a million miles

I'll be with you girl

Like being low

Hey hey hey like being stoned

I'll be with you girl

Like being low

Hey hey hey like being stoned"

Eaten By Her Own Dinner

Robyn Hitchcock

[smallest]I just had to know...[/smallest]

A rich fat p*ssy with nothing to think

Stared down the plug hole and fell in the sink

A rich fat p*ssy with nothing to stroke

Stuffed a tomato and started to choke

Smoked a tomato and punched in the tissues

That ruptured all over her mouth

A rich fat p*ssy in a sea of milk

Of fur and flags and skin and silk

But choking on a rubber gnat

Her feet stuck out beneath her hat

She was eaten by her own dinner

Eaten by her own dinner

The chandelier went down on her and covered her with crystal twigs

There's no way back tonight my friend

As waves of gravy swamped her thighs

Her skin is full of money

Her mouth is full of meat

And she makes love to everybody

Walking down the street

Avocados filled her breast

Cauliflower filled her brain

Ripe bananas were her fingers

Syrup flowed through every vein

Her lungs inflated by chapatis

Fragile spicy valves of air

For what was hair, but now is seaweed

Mackerel sprouted everywhere

And what had been her handsome nude

Was now a writhing mass of food

As meat and vegetables, too

Ganged up upon the creature who

Had preyed on them so long

So long

Bye bye

She was eaten by her own dinner

Eaten by her own dinner

Eaten by her own dinner

Eaten by her own dinner

Eaten by her own dinner

Eaten by her own dinner

Eaten by her own dinner

"Happy"- The Rolling Stones

Well I never kept a dollar past sunset,

It always burned a hole in my pants.

Never made a school mama happy,

Never blew a second chance.

I need a love to keep me happy,

I need a love to keep me happy.

Baby, baby keep me happy.

Baby, baby keep me happy.

Always took candy from strangers,

Didn't wanna get me no trade.

Never want to be like papa,

Working for the boss ev'ry night and day.

I need a love to keep me happy,

I need a love, baby won't ya keep me happy.

Baby, won't ya keep me happy.

Baby, please keep me

I need a love to keep me happy,

I need a love to keep me happy.

Baby, baby keep me happy.

Baby, baby keep me happy.

Never got a flash out of cocktails,

When I got some flesh off the bone.

Never got a lift out of Lear jets,

When I can fly way back home.

I need a love to keep me happy,

I need a love to keep me happy.

Baby, baby keep me happy.

Baby, baby keep me happy.

"Shine A Light" - The Rolling Stones

"Saw you stretched out in Room Ten-O-Nine

With a smile on your face and a tear right in your eye

Oh, couldn't see to get a line on you, my sweet honey love

Berber jewelry jangling down the street,

Making bloodshot eyes at every woman that you meet

Could not seem to get a high on you, my sweet honey love

May the good Lord shine a light on you,

Make every song your favorite tune

May the good Lord shine a light on you,

Warm like the evening sun

When you're drunk in the alley, baby, with your clothes all torn

And your late night friends leave you in the cold gray dawn

Just seemed too many flies on you, I just can't brush 'em off

Angels beating all their wings in time,

With smiles on their faces and a gleam right in their eyes

Whoa, thought I heard one sigh for you,

Come on up, come on up now, come on up now

May the good Lord shine a light on you,

Make every song you sing your favorite tune

May the good Lord shine a light on you,

Warm like the evening sun

:guitar: :guitar: :guitar: :guitar:

May the good Lord shine a light on you,

Make every song you sing your favorite tune

May the good Lord shine a light on you,

Warm like the evening sun"

Better Man ~ Pearl Jam

Waitin', watchin' the clock, it's four o'clock, it's got to stop

Tell him, take no more, she practices her speech

As he opens the door, she rolls over...

Pretends to sleep, as he looks her over

She lies and says she's in love with him, can't find a better man...

She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can't find a better man...

Can't find a better man

Can't find a better man

Ohh...

Talkin' to herself, there's no one else who needs to know...

She tells herself, oh...

Memories back when she was bold and strong

And waiting for the world to come along...

Swears she knew it, now she swears he's gone

She lies and says she's in love with him, can't find a better man...

She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can't find a better man...

She lies and says she still loves him, can't find a better man...

She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can't find a better man...

Can't find a better man

Can't find a better man

She loved him, yeah...she don't want to leave this way

She needs him, yeah...that's why she'll be back again

Can't find a better man (can't find a better man)

Can't find a better man (can't find a better man)

Can't find a better man (can't find a better man)

Can't find a better...man...

When the Sun goes Down ~ Arctic Monkeys

So who's that girl there?

I wonder what went wrong

So that she had to roam the streets

She don't do major credit cards

I doubt she does receipts

It's all not quite legitimate

And what a scummy man

Just give him half a chance

I bet he'll rob you if he can

Can see it in his eyes, yeah

That he's got a driving ban

Amongst some other offences

And I've seen him with girls of the night

And he told Roxanne to put on her red light

They're all infected but he'll be alright

Cause he's a scumbag, don't you know

I said he's a scumbag, don't you know!

Although you're trying not to listen

I bet your eyes are staring at the ground

She makes a subtle proposition

Sorry love I'll have to turn you down

And oh he must be up to something

Want half a chance to show he's more than likely

I've got a feeling in my stomach

I start to wonder what his story might be

What his story might be

They said it changes when the sun goes down

And they said it changes when the sun goes down

And they said it changes when the sun goes down

Around here

Around... here...

And look here comes a Ford Mondeo

Isn't he Mister Inconspicuous

And he don't have to say 'owt

She understands she's here to get picked up

Bet she's delighted when she sees him

Pulling in and giving her the eye

Because she must be ******* freezing

Scantily clad beneath the clear night sky

She don't stop in the winter, no and...

They said it changes when the sun goes down

And they said it changes when the sun goes down

And they said it changes when the sun goes down

Around here

They said it changes when the sun goes down

Over the river, going out to town

And they said it changes when the sun goes down

Around here

Around... here...

What a scummy man

Just give him half a chance

I bet he'll rob you if he can

Can see it in his eyes that he's got a nasty plan

I hope you're not involved at all...

Elizabeth on the Bathroom Floor ~ Eels

Laying on the bathroom floor

Kitty licks my cheek once more

And I....

I could try

But waking up is harder when you wanna die

Walter's on the telephone

Tell him I am not at home

'cause I...

Think that I...

Am going to a place where I am always high

My name's Elizabeth

My life is sh*t and piss...

the opening track of "Electro-Shock Blues"

He Stopped Loving Her Today

George Jones

He said "I'll love you till I die",

she told him "You'll forget in time"

As the years went slowly by,

she still preyed upon his mind

He kept her picture on his wall,

went half-crazy now and then

He still loved her through it all,

hoping she'd come back again

Kept some letters by his bed

dated nineteen sixty-two

He had underlined in red

every single "I love you"

I went to see him just today,

oh but I didn't see no tears

All dressed up to go away, first time

I'd seen him smile in years

He stopped loving her today

They placed a wreath upon his door

And soon they'll carry him away

He stopped loving her today

(Spoken)

You know,

she came to see him one last time.

Aww, 'n' we all wondered if she would.

And it kept runnin' through my mind

"this time he's over her for good."

He stopped loving her today

They placed a wreath upon his door

And soon they'll carry him away

He stopped loving her today

[big] Saxophones -- Jimmy Buffett[/big]

I cut my teeth on Gumbo rock, Benny Stillman and Dr. John

Sweet Erma Thomas and Frogman Henry

Used to boogie woogie all night long

Though I love rock n' roll the acoustic guitar

Was the only way I had of becomin' a star

I'm doin' really nice and travellin' around

But they won't play my record in my own home town

But if I had saxophones

Big baritones cleanin' up the muddy breaks

If I had saxophones

I could get some recognition from that Mobile, Alabama D.J.

Livin' by the ocean, sometimes I get the notion

To take my Janey downtown

We hang out in a funky little bar

They call it the "Shipwreck Lounge"

Well we get kind of drunk and we play rock n' roll

Grabbin' everybody right down in his soul

When we get to cookin' somethin's still wrong

There's still somethin' missin' from them good old songs

But if we had saxophones

Big baritones cleanin' up the muddy breaks

If we had saxophones

I could make that joint shimmy like a big California earthquake

Shine on You Crazy Diamond ~ Pink Floyd

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.

Shine on you crazy diamond.

Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.

Shine on you crazy diamond.

You were caught on the cross fire of childhood and stardom,

Blown on the steel breeze.

Come on you target for faraway laughter, come on you stranger,

You legend, you martyr, and shine!

You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.

Shine on you crazy diamond.

Treatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.

Shine on you crazy diamond.

Well you wore out your welcome with random precision,

Rode on the steel breeze.

Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter,

You piper, you prisoner, and shine!

Nobody knows where you are, how near or how far.

Shine on you crazy diamond.

Pile on many more layers and i'll be joining you there.

Shine on you crazy diamond.

And we'll bask in the shadow of yesterday's triumph,

And sail on the steel breeze.

Come on you boy child, you winner and loser,

Come on you miner for truth and delusion, and shine!

St. Andrew's Fall - Blind Melon

Big stretch and not much sleep

I got a couple of plam trees on each side of my cheek

And it's a bright blue Saturday

And the rummage sells the rubbish to me

But if I could buy the sky that's hangin'

Over this bed of mine

If I could climb these vines

And maybe see what you're seein'

If you were standing on the corner staring straight

Into the eyes of Jesus Christ

One porch, one dog, one cockroach only way to be

I got sewage fruit and it's growing out back from roots

I don't know if they belong to me

But if I could buy the sky that's hangin'

Over this bed of mine

And if I could climb these vines

and maybe see what you're seein'

Sittin' at the edge of this building,

Twenty stories below,

A' twenty stories below

Twenty stories below

Twenty stories below

I can't tell you how many ways that I've sat,

And viewed my life today, but I can tell you

I don't think that I can find easier way

So if I see you walking hand in hand in hand

With a three armed man, you know I'll understand

(Pockets full of crappiness

Can't piece together my day

So I pose myself this question

Maybe sleeps gonna get me in the shade

I got my head buried in this pillow

I got my head buried in this pillow

So low...)

But you should have been in my shoes yesterday

You should have been in my shoes yesterday

Sweet Life

Paul Davis

[smallest](Soft rock cheese dedicated to Mr. Peaches)[/smallest]

She's got your eyes, she's got my nose

And I get high just watching her grow

We always dreamed we'd live in a castle

Oh, but we're in the same old shack

Sometimes we get into a hassle

But we always take each other back

This old world seems to be in a hurry

But darlin' we'll just keep on takin' our time

'Cause we're livin' such a sweet life

Oh what a neat life

Sharin' my love with you

We're livin' such a sweet life

Oh what a neat life

Makin' our dreams come true

We're makin' our dreams come true

You are my love, you are my life

And I get high just holding you tight

We always dreamed we'd make a lot of money

I don't mind being poor

'Cause when you make love to me, honey

I couldn't ask for any more

All our friends seem to be in a hurry

But darlin' we'll just keep on takin' our time

'Cause we're livin' such a sweet life

Oh what a neat life

Sharin' my love with you

We're livin' such a sweet life

Oh what a neat life

Makin' our dreams come true

We're makin' our dreams come true

Five Man Electric Band - Signs Signs Everywhere a Sign

And the sign said "Long-haired freaky people need not apply"

So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why

He said "You look like a fine upstanding young man, I think you'll do"

So I took off my hat, I said "Imagine that. Huh! Me workin' for you!"

Whoa-oh-oh

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign

Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind

Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

And the sign said anybody caught trespassin' would be shot on sight

So I jumped on the fence and-a yelled at the house, "Hey! What gives you

the

right?"

"To put up a fence to keep me out or to keep mother nature in"

"If God was here he'd tell you to your face, Man, you're some kinda sinner"

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign

Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind

Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

Now, hey you, mister, can't you read?

You've got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat

You can't even watch, no you can't eat

You ain't supposed to be here

The sign said you got to have a membership card to get inside

Ugh!

And the sign said, "Everybody welcome. Come in, kneel down and pray"

But when they passed around the plate at the end of it all, I didn't have a

penny to pay

So I got me a pen and a paper and I made up my own little sign

I said, "Thank you, Lord, for thinkin' 'bout me. I'm alive and doin' fine."

Wooo!

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign

Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind

Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign

IT DOESN'T MATTER

Firefall

She was just lookin'

Wonderin' if you might notice her smile

She was just watchin'

Hopin' you might want to stay for a while

Let her be by your side

You don't have to say why

You don't have to say why

It doesn't matter

She was just lookin' at you

Standing alone while she tells you goodbye

She still wishes you'd stay

Wanting to tell you the way that she feels

She can't think what to say

Except don't walk away

You might need her some day

You might need her some day

It doesn't matter

She was just lookin' at you

She was just watchin'

As you walked away without turnin' around

She was jut cryin'

Her head in her hands and her eyes on the ground

Without making a sound

Oh but don't turn around

Leave her behind

She'll be around

If you change your mind baby

It doesn't matter

She was just lookin' at you

Bob Dylan - Hurricane

Pistol shots ring out in the barroom night

Enter patty valentine from the upper hall.

She sees the bartender in a pool of blood,

Cries out, my god, they killed them all!

Here comes the story of the hurricane,

The man the authorities came to blame

For somethin that he never done.

Put in a prison cell, but one time he could-a been

The champion of the world.

Three bodies lyin there does patty see

And another man named bello, movin around mysteriously.

I didnt do it, he says, and he throws up his hands

I was only robbin the register, I hope you understand.

I saw them leavin, he says, and he stops

One of us had better call up the cops.

And so patty calls the cops

And they arrive on the scene with their red lights flashin

In the hot new jersey night.

Meanwhile, far away in another part of town

Rubin carter and a couple of friends are drivin around.

Number one contender for the middleweight crown

Had no idea what kinda s*** was about to go down

When a cop pulled him over to the side of the road

Just like the time before and the time before that.

In paterson thats just the way things go.

If youre black you might as well not show up on the street

less you wanna draw the heat.

Alfred bello had a partner and he had a rap for the cops.

Him and arthur dexter bradley were just out prowlin around

He said, I saw two men runnin out, they looked like middleweights

They jumped into a white car with out-of-state plates.

And miss patty valentine just nodded her head.

Cop said, wait a minute, boys, this ones not dead

So they took him to the infirmary

And though this man could hardly see

They told him that he could identify the guilty men.

Four in the mornin and they haul rubin in,

Take him to the hospital and they bring him upstairs.

The wounded man looks up through his one dyin eye

Says, whad you bring him in here for? he aint the guy!

Yes, heres the story of the hurricane,

The man the authorities came to blame

For somethin that he never done.

Put in a prison cell, but one time he could-a been

The champion of the world.

Four months later, the ghettos are in flame,

Rubins in south america, fightin for his name

While arthur dexter bradleys still in the robbery game

And the cops are puttin the screws to him, lookin for somebody to blame.

Remember that murder that happened in a bar?

Remember you said you saw the getaway car?

You think youd like to play ball with the law?

Think it might-a been that fighter that you saw runnin that night?

Dont forget that you are white.

Arthur dexter bradley said, Im really not sure.

Cops said, a poor boy like you could use a break

We got you for the motel job and were talkin to your friend bello

Now you dont wanta have to go back to jail, be a nice fellow.

Youll be doin society a favor.

That sonofabitch is brave and gettin braver.

We want to put his a** in stir

We want to pin this triple murder on him

He aint no gentleman jim.

Rubin could take a man out with just one punch

But he never did like to talk about it all that much.

Its my work, hed say, and I do it for pay

And when its over Id just as soon go on my way

Up to some paradise

Where the trout streams flow and the air is nice

And ride a horse along a trail.

But then they took him to the jailhouse

Where they try to turn a man into a mouse.

All of rubins cards were marked in advance

The trial was a pig-circus, he never had a chance.

The judge made rubins witnesses drunkards from the slums

To the white folks who watched he was a revolutionary bum

And to the black folks he was just a crazy *******.

No one doubted that he pulled the trigger.

And though they could not produce the gun,

The d.a. said he was the one who did the deed

And the all-white jury agreed.

Rubin carter was falsely tried.

The crime was murder one, guess who testified?

Bello and bradley and they both baldly lied

And the newspapers, they all went along for the ride.

How can the life of such a man

Be in the palm of some fools hand?

To see him obviously framed

Couldnt help but make me feel ashamed to live in a land

Where justice is a game.

Now all the criminals in their coats and their ties

Are free to drink martinis and watch the sun rise

While rubin sits like buddha in a ten-foot cell

An innocent man in a living hell.

Thats the story of the hurricane,

But it wont be over till they clear his name

And give him back the time hes done.

Put in a prison cell, but one time he could-a been

The champion of the world.

Hooked on it at the moment..

Matt
