HOW PECULIAR

How peculiar

I am all of the above babe
Johnny long strokes to the grave
Saving all the stamps in
Spend it on a kettle

Rub me rub me up right lovely
If you lick it then lick it battery
Good and properly all night if you want

I haven’t got a clue what to do with you
Need for you to love me so much
Jesus what am I going to do with this crush
So get the old fella and wack it up against the touch

How peculiar

Bend your long legs against the sofa in the Dorchester
You can eat your all bran
I’m not into hard sports

Oh I haven’t got a clue what to do with you
Jesus all the things my head is going through
God what am I going to do with this crush
Just wack the old man out and get it up against the tuch

How peculiar

Jesus what am I to do man
I am a depressed man
Not sure what I’m doing
All of the day

How peculiar

I am all of the above man
I am what you want man
If you want me here I am
Come and get it baby

FEEL

Come and hold my hand
I wanna contact the living
Not sure I understand
This role I’ve been given
I sit and talk to God
And he just laughs at my plans
My head speaks a language
I don’t understand

I just wanna feel
Real love feel the home that I live in
Cos I got too much life
Running through my veins
Going to waste
I don’t wanna die
But I ain’t keen on living either
Before I fall in love
I’m preparing to leave her

Scare myself to death
That’s why I keep on running
Before I’ve arrived
I can see myself coming
I just wanna feel
Real love feel the home that I live in
Cos I got too much life
Running through my veins
Going to waste
And I need to feel
Real love and the love ever after
I can not get enough

I just wanna feel
Real love feel the home that I live in
I got too much love
Running through my veins
To go to waste

I just wanna feel
Real love and the love ever after
There’s a hole in my soul
You can see it in my face
It’s a real big place

Come and hold my hand
I wanna contact the living
Not sure I understand
This role I’ve been given
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand

SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL

You can’t manufacture a miracle
The silence was pitiful that day.
A love is getting too cynical
Passion’s just physical these days
You analyze everyone you meet
But get no sign, love ain’t kind
every night you admit defeat
and cry yourself blind

If you can’t wake up in the morning
Cause your bed lies vacant at night
If you’re lost, hurt, tired or lonely
Can’t control it, try as you might
May you find that love that won’t leave you
May you find it by the end of the day
You won’t be lost, hurt, tired and lonely
Something beautiful will come your way

The DJ said on the radio
Life should be stereo, each day
In the past you cast the unsuitable
Instead of some kind of beautiful, you just couldn’t wait
All your friends think you’re satisfied
But they can’t see your soul no, no, no
Forgot the time feeling petrified, when they lived alone

refrain

Some kind of beautiful (will come your way)
Some kind of beautiful (will come your way)
Some kind of beautiful (will come your way)
Some kind of beautiful (will come your way)

All your friends think you’re satisfied
But they can’t see your soul no no no
Forgot the time feeling petrified
When they lived alone

refrain

MONSOON

I’ve sung some songs that were lame
I’ve slept with girls on the game.
I’ve got my Catholic shame
Lord I’m in purgatory
Basically it’s all come-on talk for me

I wasn’t me when we met
You haven’t lost my respect
I’m here to serve and protect
What shape of insanity
Keeps leading you back to me?

So put your hands across the water
Oh mushroom
Monsoon
Come soon

Don’t wanna piss on your parade
I’m here to make money and get laid
Yeah I’m a star but I’ll fade
If you ain’t stickin your knives in me
You will be eventually

To all you Sharons and Michelles
With all your tales to sell
Save your meat money well
I’m glad that spending a night with me
Guaranteed you celebrity.

And I can’t talk in a crowd
When I’m alone I’m too loud
You’ve done your daddy’s proud
Thank you for keeping me company
You’ve all been so nice to me

So put your hands across the water
Oh mushroom
Monsoon
Come soon

Oh Lord
I feel
Nothing
I know much smarter men
Never got this far

I got too many regrets
I’ve smoked too many cigarrettes
I’ve had more blondes than brunettes
I’m not expecting your symphathy
But it’s all been too much for me

So put your hands across the water
Oh mushroom
Monsoon
Come soon

SEXED UP

Loose lips sunk ships
I’m getting to grips with what you said
No it’s not in my head
I can’t awaken the dead
Day after day

Why don’t we talk about it
Why do you always doubt that there can be a better way
It doesn’t make me wanna stay

Why don’t we break up
There’s nothing left to say
I got my eyes shut
Praying they won’t stray
Oh we’re not sexed up
That’s what makes the difference today
I hope you blow away

You say we’re fatally flawed
When I’m easily bored
Is that OK?
Strike me off your list
Make this the last kiss
I walk away

Why don’t we talk about it?
I’m only here don’t shout it
Give ’em time, you’ll forget
Let’s pretend we never met

Why don’t we break up?
There’s nothing left to say
I got my eyes shut
Praying they won’t stray
Oh we’re not sexed up
That’s what makes the difference today
I hope you blow away

Screw you
I didn’t like your taste anyway
I chose you
That’s all go to waste it
It’s Saturday
I’ll go out and find another you

Why don’t we?
Why don’t we break up?
There’s nothing left to say
I got my eyes shut
Praying they won’t stray
Oh we’re not sexed up
That’s what makes the difference today
I hope you blow away
I hope you blow away
I hope you blow away

LOVE SOMEBODY

Always and forever is forever young
Your shadow on the pavement
The dark side of the sun
Gotta dream the dream all over
And sleep here tight
You don’t wanna sing the blues
In black and white

And it’s hope that spring’s eternal for everyone
If it ain’t broken then brake it, oh, the damage done

Trying to love somebody
Just wanna love somebody right now
There’s just no pleasing me
Trying to love somebody
Just want to love somebody right now
Lady lay your love on me

Violet in the rainbow just melt away
There’s not enough minutes in the hour
Or hours in the day
The song played in a circle that never skips a beat
The stranger in a country that I have yet to meet

And it’s hope that springs eternal for everyone
Got a lifetime in a second oh the damage done

Trying to love somebody
Just wanna love somebody right now
Guess there’s just no pleasing me
I want to love somebody
Just want to love somebody right now
Lady lay your love on me

It’ll come in your sweet time, Lord
I just gotta let you in
The blind leading the blind, Lord
Getting underneath your skin
I can feel you in the silence
Saying let forever be
Love, only love, will set you free

I wanna love somebody
Wanna love somebody right now
There’s just no pleasing me
I wanna love somebody
Just wanna love somebody right now
Lady, lay, lay your love on me

It’ll come in your sweet time, Lord
I just gotta let you in
The blind leading the blind, Lord
Getting underneath your skin
I can feel you in the silence
Saying let forever be
Love, only love, will set you free

REVOLUTION

Don’t fight the feeling, relax
Oh child the knot’s in your back
‘Cause you’ve been holding on
I feel you when you’re reaching out

I’ll talk you through memories
Just keep breathing with me
It’s time to hold my hand
And walk into the revolution

When there’s no one to touch
And you’ve been thinking too much
You only hurt yourself
When it’s all about retribution

I see the pain in your face
And praying rare for this space
It’s time to lead you on
C’mon, it’s a revolution

When you can’t keep on keeping on
And everything you lean upon is all but gone
Everybody falls sometimes
But love shines on
And on and on and

With love in your eyes and a flame in your heart
You’re gonna find yourself some resolution
A million miles with one step
You’ll find yourself yet
Walking with the revolution

(Get it on get it on get it on get it on get the revolution)
Talking about the revolution
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on get the revolution)
Walking with the revolution
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on get the revolution)
Taking you higher

Old love lingers on
You’re just feelin it wrong
I know you’re tired
But when it’s time to sleep you’re gone forever

Make friends with your past
And you can leave it at last
It’s time to find yourself
Walking with the revolution

And you can keep on keeping on and
Everything you lean upon is all but gone
Everybody hurts sometimes
But love shines on and on and on and

Time and tide’s on your side
There’s no need to hide
I feel your pain
Don’t talk to me about evolution
A million miles with one step
You’ll find yourself yet
When you’re walking with the revolution

Walking with the revolution
A million miles with one step
And you’ll find yourself yet
When you’re walking with the revolution

(Get it on get it on get it on get it on get the revolution)
Walking with the revolution
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on get the revolution)
Get on with your revolution
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on get the revolution)
It’s all about resolution now

Talking about the revolution
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on get the revolution)
Oh oh
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on get the revolution)
Talking about the revolution
(Get it on get it on get it on get it on get the revolution)
Lead you on to the revolution

(Get it on get it on get it on get it on get the revolution)

HANDSOME MAN

Hello. Did you miss me?
I know I’m hard to resist
Y’all can come and help me pick the sweetcorn out of this.
It’s hard to be humble
When you’re so fucking big
Did you ever meet a sexier male chauvinist pig

I’m gonna milk it till I turn it into cheese
Tell your babes in arms and OAP’s
Come take a piece of me

If you drop me I’ll fall to pieces on you
If you don’t see me I don’t exist
It’s nice to meet you
Now let me go and wash my hands
Cause you just met the world’s most handsome man
The world’s most handsome man

Y’all know who I am
I’m still the boy next door
That’s if you’re Lord Litchfield and Roger Moore
Have I gone up in the world
or has the world gone down on me
I’m the one who put the Brits in celebrity

Give in and love it
What’s the point in hating me
You can’t argue with popularity
Well you could
But you’d be wrong

If you drop me I’ll fall to pieces on you
If you don’t need me I don’t exist
You voted for me
Now let me see a show of hands
Here before you stands

Can you make me laugh and sign this autograph
Though it’s not for me
Flip a grin, shake a thing, name a shame
Then I’m out of here
It’s not very complicated
I’m just young and overrated

Please don’t drop me I’ll fall to pieces on you
If you don’t see me I don’t exist
It’s nice to meet you
Now let me go and wash my hands
Cause you just met the world’s most handsome man
Here before you stands
Please don’t drop me I’ll fall to pieces on you
If you don’t need me I don’t exist
It’s nice to meet you
Now let me go and wash my hands
Cause you just met the world’s most handsome man
The world’s most handsome man
The world’s most handsome man
The world’s most handsome man

COME UNDONE

So unimpressed, but so in awe
Such a saint, but such a whore
So self-aware, so full of shit
So indecisive, so adamant
I’m contemplating, thinkin’ about thinkin’
It’s overrated, just get another drink and

Watch me come undone
They’re selling razor blades and mirrors in the street
I pray when I’m coming down, you’ll be asleep
If I ever hurt you, your revenge will be so sweet
Because I’m scum, and I’m your son
I come undone
I come undone

So rock ‘n’ roll, so corporate suit
So damn ugly, so damn cute
So well-trained, so animal
So need your love, so fuck you all
I’m not scared of dying, I just don’t want to
If I stop lying, I’ll just disappoint you

Come undone
They’re selling razor blades and mirrors in the street
Come undone
I pray when I’m coming down, you’ll be asleep
Come undone
If I ever hurt you, your revenge will be so sweet
Because I’m scum, and I’m your son
I come undone

So write another ballad, mix it on a Wednesday
Sell it on a Thursday buy a yacht on Saturday
It’s a love song, a love song
Do another interview, sing a bunch of lies
Tell about celebrities that I despise
And sing love songs, we sing love songs so sincere

So sincere

Come undone
They’re selling razor blades and mirrors in the street
Come undone
I pray when I’m coming down, you’ll be asleep
Come undone
The young pretend you’re in the clouds above the sea
I come undone
I am scum
Love your son
You’ve gotta love your son
Come undone
You’ve gotta love you son
Come undone

Love your son
I am scum
I am scum
I am scum
I am scum
I am scum
I am scum

ME AND MY MONKEY

There was me and my monkey
And with his dungarees and roller blades smoking filter tips
Reclining in the passenger seat of my super-charged jet black Chevrolet
He had the soft-top down (he liked the wind in his face)
He said ‘Son, you ever been to Vegas?’ I said ‘no’
He said ‘that’s where we’re gonna go – you need a change of pace’
And we hit the strip with all the wedding chapels and the neon signs
He said ‘I left my wallet in El Segondo’ and proceeded to take two grand of mine
We made tracks to The Mandalay Bay Hotel
Asked the bell boy if he’d take me and my monkey as well?
He looked in the passenger seat of my car and with a smile he said
‘If your monkey’s got that kind of money sir, then we’ve got a monkey bed!’

Me and my monkey
With a dream and a gun
I’m hoping my monkey don’t point that gun at anyone
Me and my monkey
Like Butch and the Sundance Kid
Trying to understand why he did what he did
Why he did what he did

We got the elevator, I hit the 33rd floor
We had a room up top with the panoramic views like nothing you’d ever seen before
He went to sleep in the bidet and when he awoke
He ran his little monkey fingers through yellow pages
Called up some escort services and ordered some okey doke
Forty minutes later there came a knock at the door
In walked this big bad ass baboon into my bedroom with three monkey whores
‘Hi! My name is Sunshine – these are my girls
Lace my palm with silver baby and oh yeah, they’ll rock your world’
So I watched pay-per-view and polished my shoes and my gun
Was diggin’ old Kurt Cobain singing ’bout lithium
There came a knock at the door and in walked Sunshine
‘What’s up? You’d better get your ass in here boy, your monkey’s having too much of a good
time!’

Me and my monkey
Drove in search of the sun
Me and my monkey
Don’t point that gun at anyone
Me and my monkey
Like Billy The Kid
Trying to understand why he did what he did
Why he did what he did

Got tickets to see Sheena Easton, the monkey was high
Said it was a burning ambition to see her before he died
We left before encores, he couldn’t sit still
Sheena was a blast baby but my monkey was ill
We went to play black-jack, kept hitting twenty three
Couldn’t help but notice this Mexican just staring at me
Or was it my monkey? I couldn’t be sure
It’s not like you’d never seen a monkey in rollerblades and dungarees before
Now don’t test my patience ’cause we’re not about to run
That’s a bad ass monkey boy and he’s packing a gun
‘My name is Rodriguez’, he says with death in his eye
‘I’ve been chasing you for a long time amigos, and now your monkey’s gonna die!’

Me and my monkey
drove in search of the sun
Now me and my monkey
We don’t wanna kill no mexican
But we’ve got ten itchy fingers
and one thing to declare
When the monkey is high
you do not stare, you do not stare
you do not stare…

Looks like we’ve got ourselves a mexican standoff here boy
huh…
And I ain’t about to run
Put your gun down, boy
huh huh…
How did I get mixed up with this fucking monkey anyhow?

SONG 3

Come join the band
Come shag the damned
God I blow them away
A heart of chrome
A broken home
I got plenty to say

Who are you doing?
Don’t spoil my day
A bigger better offer baby
He’s on his way
You gotta love LA

I feel gigantic
Gonna burst a vein
I’m stopping traffic
‘Cause they dig the fame
And I’m just the same

So Ebay baby
Haven’t seen you lately
Do you still give it away
So get my peeps
To call your peeps
‘Cause we’ve got nothing to say

Don’t feed the models
Don’t look at police
Don’t go to Crenshaw boule
‘Cause whitey can get fleeced
God I love LA

I feel gigantic
Gonna burst a vein
I’m stopping traffic
‘Cause I dig the fame
I’m hearing voices, voices
Like a jumbo jay
Too many choices, choices
Gotta love LA
Californi-a .. USA baby

Who you doing baby?
Don’t spoil my day
You’ve been gloating lately baby
And I dig LA
I’d have to say

I feel gigantic
Gonna burst a vein
I’m stopping traffic
I kinda dig the fame
I’m hearing voices voices
I’ve gotta jumbo jay
Too many choices, choices
Gotta love LA
Californi-a
USA
USA
USA

HOT FUDGE

Queen bitch eat the rich
I’m on the second course today
I’m not the first and I won’t be the worst
She’s done most of L.A.
Can’t find a virgin, I can get you a surgeon
Twenty-four hours a day
Call it Collagen Jeanie you big lip meanie
I’m about to be blown away
Come on sing it

Take me to the place where the sunshine flows
Oh my Sunset Rodeo

Hot fudge here comes the judge
There’s a green card in the way
The Holy Ghost and the whole East Coast
Are moving to L.A.
And we’ve been dreaming of this feeling since 1988
Mother things have got to change
I’m moving to L.A.

Take the piss always English
God bless you Uncle Sam
You got a cool gene pool and our winter’s cruel
And God knows I love to tan
Making cents and dead Presidents
Before I could count to ten
With a nation behind me can’t stop the limey
She’s on her back again
Come on sing it

Take me to the place where the sunshine flows
Oh my Sunset Rodeo

Hot fudge here comes the judge
There’s just a green card in the way
The Holy Ghost and the whole East Coast
Are moving to L.A.
‘Cause we’ve been dreaming of this feeling since 1988
Mother things have got to change
I’m moving to L.A.

L.A. L.A. L.A.
L.A. L.A. L.A.
L.A. L.A. L.A.

Take me to the place where the sunshine flows
Oh my Sunset Rodeo

Hot fudge here comes the judge
There’s just a green card in the way
The Holy Ghost and the whole East Coast
Are moving to L.A.
‘Cause we’ve been dreaming of this feeling since 1988
Mother things have got to change
I’m moving to

Hot fudge here comes the judge
There’s just a green card in the way
The Holy Ghost and the whole East Coast
Are moving to L.A.
And we’ve been dreaming of this feeling since 1988
Mother things have got to change
I’m moving to L.A.
Moving to L.A.
Keep on moving, keep on moving, keep on moving to L.A.
L.A., L.A.
Keep on moving, moving on
Keep on moving, moving on
Keep on moving, moving on
..and stop

CURSED

Dig your polished nails into the dirt
Rip your skirt off, wipe the hurt off
You know it tears my heart out when you
Flirt with danger and any stranger

You’re not as stupid as I look
Before I could read, you wrote the book

Cursed, since your birth dear
And your worst fears have all come true

Held my hand when I got my first tattoo
I was naked when it penetrated
Told everyone I’d slept with you
Thought you’d like it, knew you wouldn’t deny it

St Peter’s gonna be unfaithful
Tell God he’s got a dirty angel

Cursed, since your birth dear
And your worst fears have all come true
Babe you’re not the first here on earth dear
‘Cause I’m still here and I’m cursed too, cursed like you

Hush, baby sleep now
We all love you we always did

Cursed, since your birth dear
And your worst fears have all come true
Babe you’re not the first here on earth dear
‘Cause I’m still here
And I’m cursed too, cursed like you

Hush, baby sleep now
We all miss you, we always will

NAN’S SONG

You said when you’d die that you’d walk with me every day
And I’d start to cry and say please don’t talk that way
With the blink of an eye the Lord came and asked you to meet
You went to a better place but He stole you away from me

And now she lives in heaven
But I know they let her out
To take care of me

There’s a strange kind of light
Caressing me tonight
Pray silence my fear she is near
Bringing heaven down here

I miss your love I miss your touch
But I’m feeling you every day
And I can almost hear you say
‘You’ve come a long way baby’

And now you live in heaven
But I know they let you out
To take care of me

There’s a strange kind of light
In my bedroom tonight
Pray silence my fear she is near
Bring your heaven down here

You taught me kings and queens
While stroking my hair
In my darkest hour I know you are there
Kneeling down beside me
Whispering my prayer

Yes there’s a strange kind of light
Caressing me tonight
Pray silence my fear
She is near
Bringing heaven down here

The next time that we meet
I will bow at her feet
And say wasn’t life sweet
Then we’ll prepare
To take heaven down there
