I know you think we're pretty thick Just a bunch of pikeys from the sticks But you don't fool me with your rentacrowd Your Hoxton hair and your trendy sound You don't fool me with your rentacrowd You're going nowhere Going nowhere You wouldn't last a minute back where I come from The people there know a con is a con is a con It ain't all about just the way you look The clothes you wear and the drugs you took It ain't all about just the way you look You're going nowhere Going nowhere I know you're much better looking than me Another face on the pages of the NME

Jimmy, Jimmy since you went away I hold a séance for you everyday I mourn your passing and I mourn my health Without your love I'm just a ghost of myself She said... If I ain't go you Then I ain't got nothing If I ain't got you Then I ain't got nothing Jimmy, Jimmy know I feel so bad Thinking about the things we never had And since you left me, I've been on my own Without your love, well I've been chilled to the bone She said...

I don't want to be like you See the world the way you do And I won't ride upon your bus Talking to you is too much fuss I feel it in my bones My head down to my toes Just like Julia Just like Julia Just like Julia Jones You go your way, I'll go mine Making plans where the sun don't shine And I won't ride upon your bus Talking to you is too much fuss

I can hear you coming girl From a thousand miles away You came by telephone Over from the USA You've got something All I've got nothing And I want something from you When all is said and done Take the money Get your skates on and Run, run, run, run You're the queen of tinsel town baby I'm a refugee God gave you everything But he didn't give you me You've got something And I've got nothing And I want something from you When all is said and done Take the money Get your skates on and Run, run, run, run

Dr Gee, what's wrong with me? I'm not the man, that I used to be I've got too much stuff on my mind I'm not sleeping at night Too much stuff on my mind this time Too much stuff on my mind Dr Gee WHat's wrong with me? I looked in the mirror, but I couldn't see me I must confess My head's in a mess It's a mystery to me Because I've got everything I've got everything indeed

I'm only half a man But I give all I can The center of my world Is my dancing girl This tin soldier man Wants a girl like you They put me down the drain But I came back again You and my little tin heart Should never be apart They never made me cry Just look me in the eye You are my whole wide world My little dancing girl I want a girl like you

You climbed out of the Medway The way that some folks do Now you don't give a monkey's About anything I do YOu left me in the morning Said I'm just a waste of skin And you won't stop to pick me up Cos you don't know where I've been With your love With your love You got me with your love I watched you from a distance When the smile fell off your face You were always blaming someone else And getting on my case You taught me to be angry Oh yeh, resign myself to fate You taught me that there ain't no god You taught me how to hate You never had the feelings Like normal people do And nothing that I ever done Was good enough for you Now I'm a disappointment Well I try so hard to please But I can't beg forgiveness no more And go down on my knees

You're a well known face On the music scene You work in A&R For Sony BMG You came looking for something In an '80's way But we ain't matching the profile The boss has set you today That band won't do no good We don't even care The promoter said You won't play no more Not unless you get More punters through the door He don't care what you sound like He don't care what you play As long as you make him money For doing nothing all day Listen all you hunts That want to put us down Cos we don't conform To the latest sound We don't care whta you're thinking We don't care what you say Cos wen you're laying the boot in We continue to play

Franz Anton's experiments Are psychological events Magnetise your earthly brain And take you to another plain Supernaturally, you will agree With his every word And he will have his message heard Magnetised, he will instill Conformity to Mesmer's will Supernaturally you will agree Mesmer You've got a winner there Oh yeh Oh how great it seems to be The darling of society Feted by the great and good And you would too If I thought you could Supernaturally you will agree And you'll have your way And always get to win the day Manipulate those weak of mind Expected if a touch unkind Supernaturally you will agree - Oh yeh

Down by the river A trade to make you shiver Smith gives out legal advice Sitting in a bubble and dishing out the trouble Death at a discounted price I'll tell you something A life costs nothing He's gonna prove it to you A Cold 500, a Cold 500, a Cold 500 will do For legal cases and busting faces Smith's gonna lend you a hand You pay your money and fix it in a hurry And wash that blood from your hand One cash payment A water arrangement A minute and the deal will be done For quick successes, Smith confesses Results come quick with a gun

On a foggy hill on the 2-2-9 When you're driving south in the dead of night And you see that girl with the nowhere eyes She's not really there (Not really there) She's not really there At all... On a foggy hill back in '65 Take the Ford Cortina for a hen night drive It's the final taxi for the blushing bride She's not really there (Not really there) She's not really there At all...

I'm a bit part player int eh story of my life And I can't wake up but I just won't sleep at night Maybe I'm alive and maybe I'm dead The things you say rattle round my head Empty words that sound like shit to me Turn it round, round, round, round, round, round Turn it around Ther'es a black dog sitting on my shoulder late at night And the muzzle comes off and we talk about my life Well, I don't need your Poly-Anna 'ism' Your life skills coach adn modern superstitions Empty words that sound like shit to me

They've gone to Australia In search of the sun They've gone to Australia In search of some fun And while they're away Their old friends will say Who knows what the future will bring? They've gone to Australia They're starting again They've gone to Australia And leaving their friends And while they're away The relatives say Who knows what the future will bring? They've gone to Australia To hide from the rain They've gone to Australia To escape the mundane And while they're away They hold hands and say Who knows what the future will bring?
