Joyriders

We like driving on a Saturday night / past the Leisure Centre / left at the lights / Oh we don't look for trouble / but if it comes we don't run / Looking out for trouble / is what we call fun / Hey you / you in the Jesus sandals / wouldn't you like to / come over and watch some vandals / smashing up someone's home? / We can't help it we're so thick we can't think / can't think of anything / but shit, sleep and drink / Oh and we like women / "Up the women!" we say / and if we get lucky / yeah we might eve n meet some one day / Oh you / you in the Jesus sandals / wouldn't you like to / come over and watch some vandals / smashing up someone's home? / Mister / we just want your car / `cos we're taking a girl / to the reservoir / Oh all the papers say / that i t's a tragedy / but don't you want to come and see? / Hey! / Mister / we just want your car / `cos we're taking a girl / to the reservoir / Oh all the papers say / that it's a tragedy / Mister / we just want your car / `cos we're taking a girl / to the re servoir / Oh all the papers say / that it's a tragedy / but don't you want to come and see? / Mister / we just want your car / `cos we're taking a girl / to the reservoir / Oh all the papers say / that it's a tragedy.

Lipgloss

No wonder you're looking thin / when all that you live on / is lipgloss and cigarettes / And scraps at the end of the day when / he's given the rest / to someone with long black hair / All those nights in, making such a mess of the bed / Oh you never ever want to go home / And he wants you so you may as well hang around for a while / call your Dad on the phone / He changed his mind last Monday / so you've got to leave by Sunday / yeah / You've lost your lipgloss Honey / Oh yeah / Now nothing you do / can turn him on / there's something wrong / You had it once / but now it's gone / And you feel such a fool / for laughing at bad jokes / and putting up with all of his friends / and kissing in public / What are they going to say / when they run into you again ? / That your stomach looks bigger / and your hair is a mess / and your eyes are just holes in your face / And it rains every day and when it doesn't / the sun makes you feel worse anyway / He changed his mind last Monday / so you've got to leave by Sunda y / yeah / You've lost your lipgloss Honey / Oh yeah / Now nothing you do / can turn him on / there's something wrong / You had it once / but now it's gone / Though you knew there was no way / it was going to last for ever / it still shook you / when he t old you in a letter / that he didn't / want to see you / You nearly lost your mind / Oh yeah / You've lost your lipgloss Honey / Oh yeah / Now nothing you do / can turn him on / there's something wrong / You had it once / but now it's gone / Oh yeah / Oh yeah / Oh yeah / ah/ah/ah/ah... / ooh/ooh/ooh/ooh... / Oh yeah

Acrylic Afternoons

I fell asleep on the sofa and had a dream about a small child in dungarees who caught his hands in the doors of the Paris Metro. Then my face cracked open and you were there, dressed in green, saying something obscene. But's that's why I came here in the first place. Oh yeah, that and the tea. / Can I stay here / lying under the table together with you now? / Can I hold you? / Forever in acrylic afternoons / I want to hold you tight / whilst children play outside / and they wait for their mothers / to fin ish with lovers / and call them inside for their tea / Cushions and TV and the table set for tea. One for you, one for me. Come and lie down on the settee in that green jumper, you can have anything you want and the clock is saying it's half past four but you know, you know I wanna, I wanna stay a little more. / Can I stay here / lying under the table together with you now? / Can I hold you? / Forever in acrylic afternoons / I want to hold you tight / whilst children play outside / and they wait for their mothers / to finish with lovers / and call them inside for their tea / Oh / On a pink quilted eiderdown, I want to pull your knickers down. Net curtains blow slightly in the breeze. Lemonade light filtering through the trees. It's so soft and so warm. Ju st another cup of tea please (one lump, yeah, thankyou... thankyou... thankyou... thankyou...) / Can I stay here / lying under the table together with you now? / Can I hold you? / Forever in acrylic afternoons / I want to hold you tight / whilst children play outside / and they wait for their mothers / to finish with lovers / and call them inside for their tea / Oh Wayne, Julie, Diane, Heather, Rachel / come home.

Have You Seen Her Lately?

First you let him in your bed / Now he's moved inside your head / And he directs / all the dreams / you are dreaming / I saw a friend of yours today / She called me over just to say / "I don't know if you've seen her lately / but God she's looking rough." / Oh now don't go round to see him / tonight / He's already made such a mess of your life / Find something else to do / with your time / and do it quickly / while you've still got the chance / Do you think he'll fall apart? / Do you think you'll break hi s heart? / If you leave him on his own / You are dreaming / `cos he can fasten all his clothes / tie his laces / blow his nose / It's time to teach him how to walk / yeah, teach your baby how to walk away now / No don't go round to see him / tonight / He' s already made such a mess of your life / Find something else to do / with your time / and do it quickly / while you've still got the chance / You're not his mother / and you're not sister / and brother / He's not even your lover / He's just a piece of lu ggage / you should throw away / No don't go round to see him / tonight / He's already made such a mess of your life / Find something else to do / with your time / and do it quickly / while you've still got the chance / No don't go round to see him / tonig ht / He's already made such a mess of your life / Find something else to do / with your time / and do it quickly / oh while you've still got the chance.

David's Last Summer

We made our way slowly down the path that led to the stream, swaying slightly, drunk on the sun, I suppose. It was a real summer's day. The air humming with heat whilst the trees beckoned us into their cool green shade. And when we reached the stream I pu t a bottle of cider into the water to chill, both of us knowing that we'd drink it long before it had the chance. / This is where you want to be / there's nothing else but you and her / and how you spend your time / Walking to parties whilst it's still li ght outside. Peter was upset at first but now he's in the garden talking to somebody Polish. Why don't we set up a tent and spend the night out there? And we can pretend that we're somewhere foreign but we'll still be able to use the fridge if we get hung ry, or too hot. / This is where you want to be / there's nothing else but you and her / and how you use your time / We went driving / Oooh / Oooh oooh oooh... / This is where you want to be / there's nothing else but you and her / and how you use your tim e / Your time / Your time / bala / ba la bala... / The room smells faintly of sun tan lotion in the evening sunlight and when you take off your clothes you're still wearing a small pale skin bikini. The sound of children playing in the park comes from far away and time slows down to the speed of the specks of dust floating in the light from the window. / Summer leaves fall from Summer trees / Summer grazes fade on Summer knees / Summer nights are slowly getting long / Summer's going so hurry soon it'll be gone / So we went out to the park at midnight one last time. Past the abandoned glasshouse stuffed full of dying palms. Past the bandstand down to the boating lake. And we swam in the moonlight for what seemed like hours until we couldn't swim anymore. An d as we came out of the water we sensed a certain movement in the air and we both shivered slightly and ran to collect our clothes. And as we walked home we could hear the leaves curling and turning brown on the trees and the birds deciding where to go fo r Winter. And the whole sound, the whole sound of Summer packing it's bags and preparing to leave town. Oh but I want you to stay. Oh please stay for a while, oh I want you to stay, oh I want you to stay.
