Go to a cash machine
To get a ticket home
Message on the screen
Says don't make plans, you're broke
No, no this can't be right
I know that time is tight
I've only just been paid
Three weeks five days, til I'm seen
Right...
No...
I scratch a living, it ain't easy
You know it's a drag
I'm always paying, never make it
But you can't look back
I wonder if I'll ever get
To where I want to be
Better believe it
I'm working for the cash machine

I try to phone a friend
My credit's in the red
I try to skip the fare
Ticket inspector's there
No no, this can't be right
I live an honest life
It seems like sometimes
You don't cross the line
You don't get
By...
No...

I scratch a living, it ain't easy
You know it's a drag
I'm always paying, never make it
But you can't look back
I wonder if I'll ever get
To where I want to be
Better believe it
Yeah...

What am I gonna do
My girlfriend's test turned blue
We tried to play it safe
That night we could not wait
No no, this can't be right
She said it would be alright
I can't afford to be a daddy
So I leave tonight...
No...

I scratch a living, it ain't easy
You know it's a drag
I'm always paying, never make it
But you can't look back
I wonder if I'll ever get
To where I want to be
Better believe it
I'm working for the cash machine
Cash machine
Cash machine ...

There's a hole in my pocket, my pocket, my pocket
There's a hole in my pocket, my pocket, my pocket
There's a hole in my pocket, my pocket, my pocket
There's a hole in my pocket

. . .



I've got to go, but what a prize to give
Package deal to the sun, everything is inclusive
Where bullet holes, scar the minarets
Smoke on the horizon a beautiful sunset

Going on my middle eastern holiday
Give me a gun, I hope to see my mum again
Going on my middle eastern holiday
Been gone so long, I hope I'm coming home some day
We can fight, we can fight

I'm 21, meanwhile back at home
My friends are out tonight all drinking and dancing
I've got a girl, is she missing me?
Watching out for me on the news on TV

Going on my middle eastern holiday
Give me a gun, I hope to see my mum again
Going on my middle eastern holiday
Been gone so long, I hope I'm coming home some day
We can fight, we can fight

Back at home, politicians sit
Over lunch discussing this
In the desert the fuse is lit
I'm the one who has to deal with it

He's got a gun, bullets meant for me
Time seems to stand still I'm so scared I can't speak
I'm flying home, above everything
I don't understand why is it my mother's crying?

Going on my middle eastern holiday
Give me a gun, I hope to see my mum again
Going on my middle eastern holiday
Top up the tan, fight for the man going far away

. . .



Oh where I come from
I just don't conform
Get me out of here!
Leave the boredom behind
Wanna see those bright lights
Get this thing in gear
Yeah...
So we'll ride in my car
Follow the star
Drive on into town
With the stereo lit
???
Might think I went there down down

You get your boots on...
You get your boots on...

And all boys and girls sing
(Na na na na na na)
Straight out of West London
(Na na na na na na)
Just like a loaded gun
(Na na na na na na)
The cognoscenti don't like us
Don't like us!
(Na na na na na na)
We'll hit the strip tonight
(Na na na na na na)
Your eyes are burning so bright
(Na na na na na na)
Can't you feel the blood rush, baby
Tied up too tight!

Wa-ah-ah-ah-ahah

Tell me can you feel it
Feel the city breathing
Feel its beating heart
No superstition
Just cold ambition
It's time to make a mark
Oh...

You get your boots on...
You get your boots on...

And all boys and girls sing
(Na na na na na na)
Straight out of West London
(Na na na na na na)
Just like a loaded gun
(Na na na na na na)
The cognoscenti don't like us
Don't like us!
(Na na na na na na)
We'll hit the strip tonight
(Na na na na na na)
Your eyes are burning so bright
(Na na na na na na)
Can't you feel the blood rush, baby
Tied up too tight!

Tied up too tight...
Tied up too tight...

And all boys and girls sing
(Na na na na na na)
Straight out of West London
(Na na na na na na)
Just like a loaded gun
(Na na na na na na)
The cognoscenti don't like us
Don't like us!
(Na na na na na na)
We'll hit the strip tonight
(Na na na na na na)
Your eyes are burning so bright
(Na na na na na na)
Can't you feel the blood rush, baby
Tied up too tight!

Tied up too tight...

Hung around here long enough
Seen the smooth, but only caught the rough
I've got no reason
Oh no, i got no reason.
Disco on the radio
I ain't got no place to go
I got no reason
Oh no I got no reason

But wait
See the new girl in town
Maybe I can show you round
Baby let's generate some heat

I gotta reason
Oh now I've gotta reason

Hey hey baby you knock me out
Make me want to scream and shout
I've gotta reason

You can make it all worth while
I like your face girl, i like your style
You've gotta reason
Oh now I gotta reason

Yeah you look so good
I want to eat you up like food
Baby lets generate some heat
I've gotta reason
Oh now I've gotta reason.

Got to get my head just right
Gonna make my move tonight
I've gotta reason
Oh I've gotta reason

Gotta reason
Gotta reason

. . .



I've seen you darling, seen you hanging round town
You in a short skirt, shining eyes of deep brown
You had a dirty look, you caught me on your hook
Turn up the thermostat, I want to see you sweat
Oh yeah, girl, you've got something I like...

I walked right over, said hi, how ya doin'?
You smiled at me and girl you tore right through me
I said come on let's dance, we've got to take our chance
You whispered in my ear, you wanna get out of here

Can you feel it? Rocking the city
Ah yeah, straight out of nowhere-ness
Like a fist, can't resist you, oh no
I tell you something

You know I love ya, just wanna touch ya
Stand up, knock me right off my feet
Hard to beat
Hard to beat
Hard to beat

Let's spend the night, spend the night together
Heart beating so fast, as you take my shirt off
This girl I saw round town, well now she's going down
Stuck on a losing streak, I think you've turned it round

Oh yeah, girl, you've got something I like...

Read all about it, have you heard the latest?
Boy in a band, Babe ... actress
But baby, you and me, we came up from the street
No time to hesitate, we've got to push our weight

Can you feel it? Rocking the city
Ah yeah, straight out of nowhereness
Like a fist, can't resist you, oh no
I tell you something

You know I love ya, just wanna touch ya
Stand up, knock me right off my feet
Hard to beat
Hard to beat
Hard to beat

Goodness
No, I've never known a night like this
Can't believe it, you're so hard to beat
Hard to beat

Drive me crazy, my beautiful baby
Let's spend the whole day right here together

You know I love ya, just wanna touch ya
Stand up, knock me right off my feet
Hard to beat
Hard to beat
Hard to beat

Oh yeah, girl, you've got something I like...

. . .



You take it easy
You have your reasons
Sometimes it eats you inside
It feels like treason

You give it right back
Then they just can't take it
You mind your business
Whats yours, they have to wreck it
The hypocrits don't, don't like the bed they lay in
Come out fighting, you know you're always going to win

There's just no point in cause unnecessary trouble
Just make sure you cause trouble when it's necessary
There's just no point in cause unnecessary trouble
Just make sure you cause trouble when it's necessary

You make excuses
For their ruthlessness
You can't imagine yourself being so careless
There is no reason why they want to hurt you
Maybe it's envy they know they just can't touch you
The hypocrits don't, don't like the bed they lay in
So come out fighting, you know you're always going to win

There's just no point in cause unnecessary trouble
Just make sure you cause trouble when it's necessary
There's just no point in cause unnecessary trouble
Just make sure you cause trouble when it's necessary

There's just no point in cause unnecessary trouble
Just make sure you cause trouble when it's necessary
There's just no point in cause unnecessary trouble
Just make sure you cause trouble when it's necessary

Baby baby, I think it's time we move on now
Baby baby, I think it's time we move on now

Looking out my bedroom window
See the planes take off from Heathrow
One by one they come and go
On and on, on and on
I think about the places I'd go
Think about this place I call home
All the shots, and all the con
All around, all around

Red light blinking in the twilight
Tracing out a path right out of here and now
Red light blinking in the twilight
Tracing out a path right out of here and now

Baby baby, I think it's time we move on now
Baby baby, I think it's time we move on now

Don't you think it's quiet around here?
Doesn't seem so much to do here?
Think back to this time last year
Good times, good times, good times
Don't you think we've stayed far too long?
Don't you think the colour has gone?
Get on a plane it can't be wrong
Moving on, moving on

Red light blinking in the twilight
Tracing out a path right out of here and now
Red light blinking in the twilight
Tracing out a path right out of here and now

Baby baby, I think it's time we move on now
Baby baby, I think it's time we move on now

Baby baby, I think it's time we move on now
Baby baby, I think it's time we move on now

Dance floors are empty, clubs have all closed down
Nothing's going on round here, it's time we left town
Got a feeling my love we've got to get out

. . .



Your back sitting on my door step
Oh yeah like nothing happened
Telling me that you're free and oh, can you see me again?
Yeah right, so you've been kicked out
Do you think I'm that stupid?
You say you're free but didn't he just get tired of you kid?

I could not eat for days
I cried so much my face
Has never been the same and now you're back here with your lies
I hope you realise

You think I'm going to take you back
You better do better than that
I'll tell you how it's going to be
Don't you never ever come near me

Let me tell you how I've been
I've been hiding from my friends
Hiding from the world
Hiding from myself
So you think you'll come round here
Start singing in my ear
Girl you damaged me, I don't forgive so easily
You better do better than that

Your face, makes me want to be sick
Ah yeah it's a physical reaction
You better leave cos you see I can't
Won't be blamed for my actions
Don't know how I ever loved you
So dumb why did I ever trust you?
But you and he laughed at me, oh yeah
While you lay together

I could not eat for days
I cried so much my face
Has never been the same and now you're back here with your lies
I hope you realise

You think I'm going to take you back
You better do better than that
I'll tell you how it's going to be
Don't you never ever come near me

Let me tell you how I've been
I've been hiding from my friends
Hiding from the world
Hiding from myself
So you think you'll come round here
Start singing in my ear
Girl you damaged me, I don't forgive so easily
You better do better than that

I gave you everything I had girl
But you had to try and take some more
You went behind my back girl
Cheated on me, I was the last to know
Did everything we have mean nothing to you?
Well I was such a fool
Now you come crawling back girl
Well let me tell you, I am through with you

I'm back up off the floor
And I won't get hurt no more
I've been waiting for this day when you'll be back here with your lies
I hope you realise

You think I'm going to take you back
You better do better than that
I'll tell you how it's going to be
Don't you never ever come near me

Let me tell you how I've been
I've been hiding from my friends
Hiding from the world
Hiding from myself
So you think you'll come round here
Start singing in my ear
Girl you damaged me, I don't forgive so easily

It started off alright, we'd go out Friday night
And have a drink and do whatever made us feel alright
We'd stay out all weekend try taking everything
But never hurt no one and so what
You only live once I thought, till I got bored

That weren't enough for you, you'd go out Monday to
And Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday till it all caught up with you
You're everyones best friend, long as they've got something
I did not know you no more, heart break a sickness I can't see

Feltham is singing out
Feltham is singing out
Tonight a lights gone out, 21 years old and out
Feltham is singing out

We all went out one night, you got us in a fight
You owed some money to a monkey who had seen you right
You sold your furniture so you could pay him off
They cut the power, cut the phone and you slept on the floor

You can't hold down a job, so then you had to rob
First from your mum and then your friends and then the local shops
But as a criminal you're just no good at all
You got your collar felt and so dumb
You thought about skipping bail
Now you are in jail

Feltham is singing out
Feltham is singing out
Tonight a lights gone out, 21 years old and out
Feltham is singing out

You don't like prison life, you loved to watch the sky
And you'd get beaten and you'd end up throwing up all night
You couldn't take no more, so when they closed the door
Tore up your sheets, strung yourself up and then you were no more

Everyday I see your face
As I walk on by past that awful place
23 hours in a cell, each and every day a living hell

Feltham is singing out...
Feltham is singing out...

. . .



Oh, I've been working all week I'm tired
I've been working all week and I'm
Just living for the weekend

Hey hey, I've got some money I just got paid
I got some money and I can't wait
At 6 o'clock, I'm out of here

Out there tonight is the night of my life got my name on
Run down the street adidas on my feet I'm on fire

Working all the time, work is such a bind
Got some money to spend, living for the weekend
When it gets too much, I live for the rush
Got some money to spend, living for the weekend

Oh man, I've been working all week I'm shot
I've been working all week for what?
Just living for the weekend

Ah shit! So my clothes are all counterfeit
So my name isn't on the list
You can't come in so go home boys

Slip round the back look at that, there's a cracked toilet window
Drop to the floor cold as ice through the door I'm on fire

Working all the time, work is such a bind
Got some money to spend, living for the weekend
When it gets too much, I live for the rush
Got some money to spend, living for the weekend

Can you feel it?
Feel the pressure rising
Push it down, Oh lord
Pressure, pressure, pressure, pressure, pressure
Feel the pressure, pressure, pressure, pressure, pressure

Living for the weekend, living for the weekend
Living for the weekend, living for the weekend
Living for the weekend, living for the weekend
I'm living for the weekend, I'm living for the weekend

Going out tonight, going out tonight
Baby you and I going out tonight
Going out tonight, going out tonight

. . .



Every move that I make
Gets recorded to tape
So somebody up there
Can keep me safe

I'm going out tonight
I'll get my hair just right
I'm always looking good
For my spot light

Stick em up
Give me the money
A winning smile up to the gallery
Gonna get my face on the six o'clock news

We're the stars of CCTV
Making movies out on the street
We're the stars of CCTV
Can't you see the camera loves me

On every corner every street
Down every underpass you'll see
Somebody stealing the show
Somebody looking like me

I'll see you're out tonight
We'll strike a pose just right
We're always looking good
For the spot light

We turn it on
And so effortlessly
We fill the screen
Can't help but notice me
Gonna get my face on the six o'clock news

We're the stars of CCTV
Making movies out on the street
Flashing blue lights, camera action
Once in my life main attraction
We're the stars of CCTV
Can't you see the camera loves me

We're the stars of CCTV
Making movies out on the street
Flashing blue lights, camera action
Once in my life main attraction
We're the stars of CCTV
