Down at the club Where the cut-price drink is flowing Keith and his camera get the school girls going CHORUS: With pictures Pictures scattered around Pictures Pictures scattered around Pictures Such a terrible sound Inside his mind Buys them a drink And gives it some old twaddle If he takes the photos, she could be a model She's unaware Of his devious intention He's keeping the snaps for his personal collection

She is a tabloid legend She lost her dignity They put her in the papers They put her on TV They love her cos she's stupid She won a taste of fame She is a tabloid legend Don't you forget her name Don't you forget her name Chorus: Keep your eyes x 3 On me She's got hair extensions And she's got orange skin Fake nails and make up And now she's much too thin She had an operation Did something to her face And now she looks like something That comes from outer space She is a tabloid legend She lost her dignity They put her in the freak show And clipped their bingo wings they hate her cos she's stupid She don't deserve her fame She is a tabloid legend Don't you forget her name Don't you forget her name

If there's a God, then you're going to hell Said you were dying but you're perfectly well I don't know how you face yourself everyday I don't believe a single word that you say Chorus: I don't believe you x6 Don't believe you now I barely know you and what you're all about You're just a liar and I'm sussing you out You never ever look me straight in the eye You cross your heart and you're hoping to die
4.
I think you're changing The way you feel about me The things you're saying And everybody can see And I don't know what happened to that girl And I don't know what happened in her world Chorus: The girl who became a machine x3 I don't mind They stopped you feeling And put a chip in your brain Ripped your heart out And drained the blood from your veins Working for the council every day Watching every moment fade away
5.
As I lay in my hospital bed My heart pouring out and you're waiting for death And I'm only an hour away from a breakdown Been together a long time my friend Don't know when I'm ever gonna see you again And I feel like a burden a fool, I'm a letdown Chorus: Who's gonna look after me? x3 After you're gone Stare across at your empty old chair I'm asking you a question but I know you're not there And I'm only an hour away from a breakdown Sixty years in the blink of an eye From the Rochester Casino to the final goodbye And I feel like a burden, a fool, I'm a letdown Watch the telly; I'm down in the dumps I know I mustn't grumble but it gives me the hump And I'm only an hour away from a breakdown Take a walk to the end of the road Take the bus to Chatham cos there's nowhere to go And I feel like a burden a fool, I'm a letdown

Well good morning Mr. Grey It's another busy day And you've got no time for chat Having fun and things like that Cos it's nearly eight o' clock You're expected on the dot It's the only job you've got So it's off to work you trot Mr. Grey... Now your wife is all alone In your new build starter home And she longs to get away Feel the sun upon her face And your son stares through the glass As the world goes marching past It's the end of all her dreams No one hears her silent screams Mr Grey Chorus: She is leaving x3 And you don't care All you talk about is work And it's driving her berserk Since they saw that you were keen Turned you into a machine You're a big name at the bank Pat yourself upon the back Cos she's leaving you today And there's nothing you can say Mr Grey What went wrong for Mr Grey? Came home early from work one day Cut himself and quietly slipped away
7.
I came to your party But there's nothing here for me I don't like your friends And I can see they don't like me Chorus: I'm nothing like you Nothing like you Anyone can see I'm nothing like you Nothing like you I don't need your love And you're nothing like me I came to your night club But the people here are fools They're all getting pissed up While they act like animals
8.
You don't do different if you live round here The natives get wrestles and they think you're queer You're gonna have to lump it Baby if you live round here You think you're better than the population Don't get ideas so above your station You're gonna have to lump it Baby if you live round here And I don't think that it's right Beating up a stranger on a Saturday night I don't think that it's right Any time of the year Chorus: But if you live round here x2 You say you've had an education Round here boy, that's an affectation You're gonna have to lump it Baby if you live round here And I don't think that it's right Messing up your children for the rest of their life I don't think that it's right Any time of year But if you live round here...

PC Plot lives a double life He's got another woman that he sees on the side A little 'ows yer father, then he's home to the wife And all his mates do it, so it must be alright Chorus: You tell lies x4 In a cardboard house on the new estate The wife is worried sick cos you're home so late You've got so much but it's never enough Been playing happy families Now you're messing it up I bet your kids must be really proud Since you got caught with your trousers down The poor old wife fills her heart up with hate Now she's sneaking out the backdoor and she's shagging your mate
10.
Ain't no stopping Now you know my name Ain't no stopping from driving me insane You're the man who used to be And you won't stop talking to me It's been a long time It's been a long time It's been a long time Since you had your day Since you had your way Played on a session at the BBC And everything you tell me You did it better than me You've been going on about The time you played Sydney Opera House It's been a long time It's been a long time It's been a long time Since you had your day Since you had your way Ain't no stopping Now you're in my place You're shouting in my ears And spitting in my face You're the man who used to be And you won't stop talking to me It's been a long time It's been a long time It's been a long time Since you had your day Since you had your way
11.
Jack in the Greens Jack in the Greens You rained on my parade And all the plans we made And all I got was laid Chorus: And now it's over x2 Summer has gone Everything's wrong You took my girl away I wish she could have stayed And all I got was laid And now it's over I should have seen the signs I should have seen the signs But I won't ask for nothing special I only want what's wright Jack in the Greens Jack in the Greens You rained on my parade And all the plans we made And all I got was laid And now it's over
12.
I signed my name on the line And work for you all the time And all the money I make You take each penny away Bridge: Watching our relationship go wrong Every time we speak, you puiss me off Chorus: You've got me under the thumb where you want me x3 You've got me under the thumb and I don't know why You make me cry, cry, cry Let's throw the contract away And say whatever you say Cos we just don't seem to do The things that we used to do
13.
I am the Great Omani And here I go again I am an entertainer I am an English man Don't forget about me x3 Now that I'm gone I am the Great Omani And don't forget my name I'm jumping off the West Pier As I go up in flames Don't forget about me x3 Now that I'm gone They put the Great Omani Inside a wooden box Instead of nails in the coffin They're using chains and locks
