CERTAIN PEOPLE I KNOW
I take the cue from
Certain people I know
I use the cue
And then I
Hand it on to you

And when I swing it
So, it catches his eye ... ah, ooh ...
(Ah, weren't you there ?
- You'd have died !)

I trust the views of
Certain people I know
They look at Danger
And they
LAUGH THEIR HEADS OFF

Their clothes are Imitation
George the 23rd ah, ooh ...
(Don't you find life absurd ?)

I'd hate to be like
Certain people I know
They break their necks
And can't afford to
Get them fixed
Aho, aho

Ah, and they'd sacrifice all
Of their principles for
Ah, anything cashable
I ... I do believe, waah ... it's terrible

Oh, wo, wo
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Oh, wo, wo
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Oh, wo, wo
Ah, ah, ah, ah


THE NATIONAL FRONT DISCO
David, the wind blows
The wind blows ...
Bits of your life away
Your friends all say ...
"Where is our boy ? Aah, we've lost our boy"
But they should know
Where you've gone
Because again and again you've explained
You're going to ...

Oh, that you're going to ...
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
England for the English !
England for the English !

David, the winds blow
The winds blow ...
All of my dreams away
And I still say :
"Where is our boy ? Ah, I've lost our boy"
But I should know
Where you've gone
Because again and again you've explained
You've gone to the ...

National, oh ...
To the National ..
There's a country; you don't live there
But one day you would like to
And if you show them what you're made of ...

David, we wonder
We wonder if the thunder
Is ever really gonna begin
Oh, Begin, oh, begin
Your mom says :
"I've lost my boy"
But she should know
Where you've gone
Because again and again you've explained
You've gone to the :

National
To the National
To the National ... ah ...
Because you want the day to come sooner
You want the day to come sooner
You want the day to come sooner

Oh ...


NOVEMBER SPAWNED A MONSTER
Sleep on and dream of Love
Because it's the closest you will
Get to love, oh ah ...
The poor twisted child
So ugly, so ugly
The poor twisted child
Oh hug me, oh hug me
One November
Spawned a monster
In the shape of this child
Who later cried :

"But Jesus made me, so
Jesus save me from
pity, sympathy
And people discussing me"
This frame of useless limbs
What can make GOOD
All the BAD that's been done ?

And if the lights were out
Could you even bear
To kiss her full on the mouth
(Or anywhere ?)
No, no, no, oh, no, no, no, no

The poor twisted child
So ugly, so ugly
The poor twisted child
Oh hug me, oh hug me
One November
Spawned a monster
In the shape of this child
Who must remain
A hostage to kindness
And the wheels underneath her
A hostage to kindness
And the wheels underneath her

A symbol of where mad, mad lovers
Must PAUSE and draw the line.

Oh ...

So sleep and dream of love
Because it's the closest
You will get to love
Oh, no, no, no ... oh, no ... oh, no

Oh ...
Oh ...
Oh ...
Oh ...
Oh ...
Oh ...

One fine day
Let it be soon
She won't be rich or beautiful
But she'll be walking your streets
In the clothes that she went out
And chose for herself.

Thankyou ...


SEASICK, YET STILL DOCKED
I am a poor freezingly cold soul
So far from where
I intended to go
Scavenging through life's very constant lulls
So far from where I'm determined to go

Wish I knew the way to reach the one I love
There is no way ...
I wish I had the charm to attract the one I love
But you see, I've got no charm
Oh ...

Tonight I've consumed much more than I can hold
Oh, this is very clear to you
And you can tell I have never really loved
You can tell, by the way, I sleep all day

And all of my life no-one gave me anything
No-one has ever given me anything, ah ...
My love is as sharp as a needle in your eye
You must be such a fool
To pass me by


THE LOOP
I .. do ... I, I, do ...

I just wanna say
I haven't been away
I am still right here
Where I always was
So one day, if you're bored
By all means call me
Because you can do
(Only if you want to)

I just wanna say
I haven't been away, oh
I am still right here
Where I always was
So one day, if you're bored
By all means call me
B - Because you can do
But you might not get through, honey

Spoken : This ... for me ?


SISTER I'M A POET
All over this town
Yes, a low wind may blow
And I can see through everybo...
With no reason
To hide these words I feel
And no reason
To talk about the books I read
But still I do

That's 'cause I'm a ...
Sister I'm a ...
All over this town

Along this way
Outside the prison gates
I love the romance of crime
And I wonder
Does anybody feel the way I do ?
And is evil just something you are
Or something you do ?

Sister I'm a ...
Sister I'm a ...
All over this town

All over this town
They pull over
In their Citroen vans
Not to shake your hand
With meths on their breaths
And you with youth on your side
A plastic bag stranded at the lights
This once was me ...

But now I'm a ...
Sister I'm a ...
All over this town ...
Oh, oh, oh
All over this town
All over this town
Oh ...


JACK THE RIPPER

Sopken : I still cannot speak French ... I am very lazy

Oh, you look so tired
Mouth slack and wide
Ill-housed and ill-advised
Your face is as mean
As your life has been

Crash into my arms
I WANT YOU
You don't agree -
But you don't refuse
I know you

And I know a place
Where no one is likely to pass
Oh, you don't care if it's late
And you don't care if you're lost
And oh, you look so tired
(But tonight you presume too much)
Too much, too much
And if it's the last
Thing I ever do
I'M GONNA GET YOU

Crash into my arms
I WANT YOU
You don't agree -
But you don't refuse
I know you

Crash into my arms
I WANT YOU
You don't agree -
But you don't refuse
I know you
Oh ...

Thankyou.


SUCH A LITTLE THING MAKES SUCH A BIG DIFFERENCE
Such a little thing
Such a little thing
But the difference it made was grave
There you go
Wielding a bicycle chain
Oh, why won't you change ?
Change and be nicer ?

Such a little thing
A gentle tone of kindness
Or written words on paper
- can you write ?

How I love all of
The complicated things of life
Oh ... (God's good air)
How I love all of
The complicated things of life

Such a little thing
A fumbling politeness
Oh ... The difference it saved me
Wielding a bicycle chain
Why won't you change ?
"I WILL NOT CHANGE
AND I WILL NOT BE NICE"
Most peole keep their brains
Between their legs
Oh ...


I KNOW IT'S GONNA HAPPEN SOMEDAY
My love, wherever you are
Whatever you are
Don't lose faith
I know it's gonna happen someday
To you

Please wait ... ah
Please wait ...
Oh ...
Wait ...
Don't lose faith

You say that the day just never arrives
And it's never seemed so far away
Still, I know it's gonna happen someday
To you

Please wait ...
Don't lose faith


WE'LL LET YOU KNOW
How sad are we ?
And how sad have we been ?
We'll let you know
We'll let you know
Oh, but only if - you're really interested

You wonder how
We've stayed alive 'till now
We'll - We'll let you know
We'll let you know
Ah, but only if - you're really interested

We're all smiles
Then, honest, I swear, it's the turnstiles
That make us hostile
Over there ...
Over there, over there
Over there ...
Over there ...

We will descend
On anyone unable to defend
Themselves
Over there ...
Over there, over there
Over there
Over there

And the songs we sing
They're not supposed to mean a thing
La, la, la, la ...
Over there

Oh ...
You're lonely
Oh ... you're lonely
Oh ...

Your Arsenal !

We may seem cold, or
We may even be
The most depressing people you've ever known
At heart, what's left, of course we know
That we are the last truly British people you'll ever know
We are the last truly British people that you wouldn't want to know

Oh, so ...


SUEDEHEAD
Why do you come here ?
And why, why do you hang around ?
I'm so sorry, oh ...
I'm so sorry, oh, oh ...

Why do you come here
When you know it makes things hard for me ?
When you know, oh
Why do you come ?
Why do you telephone ? Ahur...
And why, why send me silly notes ?
I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry, oh ...

Why do you come here
When you know it makes things hard for me ?
When you know, oh
Why do you come ?
It was because
Everything that I did
I wrote it down
On the wall

You had to sneak into my room
'just' to read my diary
"Oh, it was just to see, just to see"
(All the things you knew I'd written about you...)
And oh so many illustrations
Oh, but
I'm so very sickened
Oh, I am so sickened now

Still, it was a good lay, good lay
It was a good lay, good lay
It was a good lay, good lay
Ah ...
Still, it was a good lay, good lay
It was a good lay, good lay
It was a good lay, good lay
A good lay, ah ...
Oh, it was a good lay
It was a good lay
It was a good lay
Oh, it was a good lay
Good lay, good lay
Oh
Oh, it was a good lay, good lay
Oh, it was a good lay, good lay
It was a good lay, good lay
Good lay, oh

Thankyou.


HE KNOWS I'D LOVE TO SEE HIM
I have lived
In the Arse of the world

Oh, he knows, he knows
He knows I'd love
To see him happy
(Or as close as is allowed)
I've lived
In the Arse of the world ...

Oh, he knows, he knows
He knows I'd love
To see him happy
(Or as close as possible)
As close as possible
As close as possible
As close as is allowed
Oh ...

My name still conjours up deadly deeds
And a bad taste in the mouth
And the police - they actually know me
They said :

"You're just another person in the world
You're just another fool with radical views
You're just another who has maddening views
You want to turn it on its head
By staying in bed !"

I said : "I know I do"
I said : "I know I do"
I said : "I know I do"


YOU'RE GONNA NEED SOMEONE ON YOUR SIDE
With the world's fate
Resting on your shoulder
You're gonna need
Someone on your side

You cannot do it by yourself
Any longer
You're gonna need
Someone on your side
Someone kindly told me
That you collected, oh
Very short bread knives

Oh, give yourself a break
Before you break down
You're gonna need someone on your side

And here I am
And here I am
Oh, well, you don't need
To look so pleased !

Day or night,
Oh, there is no difference
You're gonna need someone on your side

Day or night,
There is no difference
You're gonna need someone soon

And here I am
And here I am
Oh well, you don't need
To look so clean !


GLAMOROUS GLUE
The first day with the jar
You find
Everyone lies
The first day with the jar
You find
Everyone lies, nobody minds

Everyone lies
Where is the man you respect ?
And where is the woman you love ?
Where's the woman you love ?

The third week with the jar
You find
Everything dies
We won't vote Conservative
Because we never have

Everyone lies, everyone lies
Where is the man you respect ?
And where is the woman you love ?
Where's the woman you love ?

I used to dream, and I used to vow
I wouldn't dream of it now
We look to Los Angeles
For the language we use
London is dead, London is dead
London is dead, London is dead
London is dead, London is dead
I'm still too much in love
Oh, I'm too much in love

I'm more in love


WE HATE IT WHEN OUR FRIENDS BECOME SUCCESSFUL
We hate it when our friends become successful
We hate it when our friends become successful
Oh, look at those clothes
Now look at that face, it's so old
And such a video !
Well, it's really laughable
Ha, ha, ha ...

We hate it when our friends become successful
And if they're Northern, that makes it even worse
And if we can destroy them
You bet your life we will
Destroy them
If we can hurt them
Well, we may as well ...
It's really laughable
Ha, ha, ha ...

You see, it should've been me
It could've been me
Everybody knows
Everybody says so
They say :

"Ah, you have loads of songs
So many songs
Oh, songs - and they can stand
Verse
Chorus
And middle eighth
Break a fade
Just listen ..."
La, la-la, la-la
Oh ...
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA

Thankyou, I love you. Goodbye.
