If you're a new band breaking be aware cause she won't be far behind
But if you've got no airplay she won't care and you better move aside
She'll be down south top ten in her mouth in the blink of an eye
She'll be top draw on the backstage floor till the new band arrives

Ooh she's got standards but your call if your at twenty five
Ooh she's got standards till you put the twinkle in her eye
So you better cover up boy

If you're a new band breaking be aware cause she'll never leave your side
Cause if the n.m.e. say your so cool and they really like your style
She'll be down south top ten in her mouth with the blink of an eye
She'll be top draw on the backstage floor till the new band arrives

Ooh she's got standards but your call if your at twenty five
Ooh she's got standards till you put the twinkle in her eye
So you better cover up boy

Jimmy was a local boy but he?s seen much more than the change in the weather,
Sitting in a uniform of the three-piece suit and ribbons from his past,
Looking for a little boy at the bar with the mouth who thinks his clever now,
Dreaming of a day that he got home from a war to his childhood sweetheart.

Now he don?t need anyone, there?s no one there for him,
Just a feeling of an empty place deter eating,
His always been a local boy, but his seen much more than im bound to ever,
A member of a dieing breed that sat and wait as it all just falls apart,
Thinking of a day that?s oh so long ago, that he can?t remember right,
There was a time a man can still be a man and be proud to use his heart,

Now he don?t need anyone, there?s no one there for him,
There was really only one,
Now he misses how she sounds he frowns lines them up and he puts them down,
Its sad this town seems to fail appreciate the man

Now he don?t need anyone, there?s no one there for him,
No he don?t feel any more coz jimmy?s so thick skinned,
And a long long time ago, when he could break her heart,
There was really only one,
He misses how she sounds he frowns, line em up and he puts em down
Its sad this town seems to fail appreciate what he?s about,
Line them up and he puts them down
Its sad this town seems to fail appreciate the man

Jimmy was a local boy but he?s seen much more than the change in the weather,
Sitting in a uniform of the three-piece suit and ribbons from his past,
Looking for a little boy at the bar with the mouth who thinks his clever now
Dreaming of a day that he got home from a war to his childhood sweetheart.

Walk up down rundown avenues and back through swollen city veins
Now sobered up enough to understand that nothing stays the same
Overpopulated crowds you'd think I'd find a place that I'd
Attach myself upon somewhere I felt alive until I die

These hometown blues follow me home again
The closer I go I feel further away

Walk back down run down avenues and attitudes are everywhere
Pass a drunken argument they roll around and people stare
Finally hit the underground and no surprise I turn to find
Two men for twenty pound of mine if I'm alive they'll have me die

These hometown blues follow me home again
The closer I go I feel further away
further away, further away, further away

These hometown blues follow me home again
The closer I go I feel further away

These hometown blues follow me home again
The closer I go I feel further away

. . .


One just one and then I'll go
Though it's on the cards that an argument is imminent I know
But its not like I'll get carried home
It's just that I believe that she don't think I think of her when I'm on my own so

Don't think that I don't need
Our nights with the TV
You're so dear to me but sometimes I like to lose control

Just one more I promisethe I'll go
Now i don't want a scene and have you screaming down the phone
You should know the only one I know
That will make me laugh with little things they do is you
And only you alone

Don't think that I might be
Thinking that I might leave
You're so dear to me but sometimes I like to lose control

Maybe Saturday we'll go out and do something you like
Til that day arrives you should know you're mine

Don't think that I don't need
Our nights with the TV
You're so dear to me but sometimes I like it on my own

One thing I know, when I go my heart stays at home

. . .


When my baby's lonely
When she's lost her smile
I callher up just to tell her that it's only gonna be for a while
She's my one and only
Only thing worthwhile
She lets me know I'm her fella and I'm never gonna leave her side
Ooh ooh ooh she's the only one (x3)
In all I do she'es the only thing on my mind
When my baby's lonely
When she's lost her smile
I call her up just to tell her that I'm coming down to dry her eyes
Shes my one and only
The only thing worth while
I know we'll always be together cause I'd never find a better way of spending my time
(repeat chorus)
I lose myself whenever she's away
Don't sleep at night and sit about all day
No one I know will ever take her place
(repeat chorus)

. . .


She has a face to die for,
But nothing going on inside,
She'll never make your eyes sore,
Until she starts to speak her mind.

So I'll just try to keep the conversation right,
Then in the morning at the door I'll give a kiss goodbye.

Nothing wrong with that it's only one night and nothing else,
Everytime I tell myself it's the last time.
One day I'll retire, just not tonight.

Now, I'm not being ignorant,
Just that some things tend to slip my mind,
Like where she buys her tan from,
And the colour of the hair she dyes.

Now I'm not being mean, in fact I'm being quite polite,
All I'm trying to say is that you won't catch her on mastermind.

Nothing wrong with that it's only one night and nothing else,
Everytime I tell myself it's the last time.
One day I'll retire, just not tonight.

*Repeat chorus once more*

. . .


I don't see how another days gonna make us change our minds
So why don't we go separate ways ad save us a bit of time
We can't go on trying living behind this worn out and thin disguise
I don't want to try talking it out I don't need another fight
It just won't work when

All I want is a little peace and quiet

I just don't wanna live this way cause lately were up al night
I can't speak free when your in my face and I don't like to be unkind
But constantly you try and turn it around when claerly its black and white
Somethings gone and now I'm feeling down cause I've been here a million times
It just won't work when

All I want is a little peace and quiet

. . .


As i walk up a street
i lift my head up and i face you
you look good, you smell sweet,
which makes it harder to embrace you
and i was back in primary
in a playground i will chase you
but i'm noths, i'm just me
i know you might be what i'm looking for

but my head was functioned properly
and my feet don't move in time
and next week i'll forget probably
but today you've blown my mind

and as we talk, i'm going red
and i'm feeling like a schoolkid
all these boobs that fill my head
i bet i say something stupid

just play it cool and keep it come
and remember what your mother said:
now boy, just use your charme,
but all that good advice gets lost somewhere
cause my mouth just won't work right today,
all my head is full with blinds
if only i could find the words to say,
we could spend a lifetime

spend a lifetime, spend a lifetime

lalalalalalalaaaaa,lalalalalalalaaaaa

spend a lifetime, spend a lifetime

. . .


Not one of my kind of people though that?s part of our lives
Not one of the type of things that I like to do with my time
And I don?t see and don?t believe he?ll ever get it right ?really?
Not one of my kind of people

dont want group aggrovation he?s always there on the case
Love is not your vocation but like to get in the face
Of everybody here who looks you up a funny way ?really?
Not one of my kind of people

Now don?t you pretend that when you wake in the morning
Your lying to yourself it will happen again
Repeated offender you should come with a warning
Its embarrassing for all of your friends.

. . .


Everytime i catch your eye in the streetlight
Late at night when i walk you home
I hate to think that your not mine
So then ill try to make you feel i dont want you
I dont want to go down that road we always get in a big fight
It happens all the time
So i say that im just your friend and im willing to try
But no i wont carry on pretening, its all a lie
Coz i smile when your there but i cry when im all alone
But its far to hard to say to you dont go
Dont go.....
Everytime i hear your voice on the phone line
Late at night when your feeling low and your telling me to come over
It happens all the time
So when i say that im just your friend and im willing to try
But no i wont carry on pretening, its all a lie
Coz i smile when your there but i cry when im all alone
But its far to hard to say to you dont go
Coz i smile when your there but i cry when im all alone
But its far to hard to say to you dont go
Dont go.....
Smile when your there but i cry when im all alone
But its far to hard to say to you dont go
Dont go...

I've got an ongoing problem in my life,
To tolerate some people about,
No matter how I try playing the nice guy,
There's always someone picking you out.

And just the other night,
My friend was walking home,
About his business gentlemanly,
And then a bottle broke and the lights went out and he spent the night in A&E.

Where do they run off to when everyday people find it harder to sleep,
And while you pull on through they just hide away from the world cos they're weak.

Narrow Minded Social Club,
Narrow Minded Social Club,
Narrow Minded Social Club,
Narrow Minded.... Social Club.

How we gonna carry on like this,
Watching your back whenever you leave your house,
Cos one day when I have my kids,
I'd hate to have a fear of letting them out.

And just the other night,
On the news at nine,
A young boy made his way home,
He came up from behind and didn't hesitate and now he's front page of The Sun.

Where do they run off to when everyday people find it harder to sleep,
And while you pull on through they just hide away from the world cos they're weak.

Narrow Minded Social Club,
Narrow Minded Social Club,
Narrow Minded Social Club,
Narrow Minded.... Social Club.

I've got an ongoing problem in my life,
I've got an ongoing problem in my life...

the alarm rings and i wake up at 8
just in time to have a fat cat down on my back
he's smiling, though my life aint that great
its surprising the things you do for money
one day ill be the boss of my own, in a, skyscraper, a tall blond secretary
till then, ill have to suffer alone with you good, good people, aint life rosey

Don't walk around like that

its alarming how you spend every day
Be a target to a boss thats down on your back *
he's barking all these orders my way
its surprising that they'd never seem to worry
all day, im just surrounded alone, with a, pin stripped, and a pink ties necessary
im looking at the clock as it rocks and again, till the morning, aint life rosey

Don't walk around like that
Don't walk around like that
Don't walk around like that

take 2 steps back

one day ill be the boss of my own,in a, skyscraper, a tall blond secretary
till then, ill have to suffer alone with you good, good people, aint life rosey
the alarm rings and i wake up at 8
just in time to have a fat cat down on my back
he's smiling, though my life aint that great
its surprising the things you do for money

i worry more about life, tomorrow
i worry more about life, tomorrow
