Lions 4:54 --> Go to next or home <-DOWN TO THE WATERLINE Sweet surrender on the quayside You remember we used to run and ride In the shadow of cargoe I take you one time And we're counting all the numbers down to the waterline Near misses on the dogleap stairways French kisses in the darkened doorways

A foghorn blowing out wild and cold A policeman shines a light upon my shoulder Up comes a coaster fast and silent in the night Over my shoulder all you can see are the pilot lights No money on our jackets and our jeans are torn Your hands are cold but your lips are warm She can see him on the jetty where they used to go She can feel him in the places where the sailors go When she's walking by the river and the railway line She can still hear him whisper Let's go down to the waterline WATER OF LOVE High and dry in the long hot day Lost and lonley every day Got the flats all around me sky up above I need a little water of love I've been too long lonely and my heart feels pain Crying out for some soothing rain I believe I have taken enough I need a little water of love Water of love deep in the ground No water here to be found Some day baby when the river runs free It'll carry that water of love to me There's a bird up in a tree sitting up high Waiting for me to die If I don't get some water soon I'll be dead and gone in the afternoon Once I had a woman I could call my own Once I had a woman now my woman is gone Once there was a river now there's a stone You know it's evil when you're living alone SETTING ME UP You say I'm the greatest bound for glory Well the world is out and I learned I got the latest side of the story You're pulling out before you get burned

Well your hands are squeezing me down to the bone I never saw you breaking no law Stands to reason I've got to leave you alone What you taking me for You're setting me up to put me down You're making me out to be your clown You're just setting me up to put me down You better give it up Quit your messing around You think I care about your reaction You think I don't understand All you wanted was a piece of the action Now you talk about another man SIX BLADE KNIFE Your six blade knife can do anything for you Anything you want it to One blade for breaking my heart One blade for tearing me apart Your six blade knife - do anything for you You can take away my mind like you take away the top of a tin When you come up from behind and lay it down cold on my skin Took a stone from my soul when I was lame Just so you could make me tame You take away my mind like you take away the top of a tin I'd like to be free of it now - I don't want it no more I'd like to be free of it now - you know I don't want it no more Everybody got a knife it can be just what they want it to be A needle a wife or something that you just can't see You know it keeps you strong Yes and it'll do me wrong Your six blade knife - do anything for you SOUTHBOUND AGAIN Southbound again I don't know if I'm going or leaving home Boy got to be moving Seems like the boy is bound to roam Southbound again got no money I've got no place to go That woman's with her lover boy Never want to see her face no more

Every single time I roll across the rolling River Tyne I get the same old feeling Every time I'm moving down the line Soutbound again last night I felt like crying Right now I'm sick of living But I'm going to keep trying SULTANS OF SWING You get a shiver in the dark It's raining in the park but meantime South of the river you stop and you hold everything A band is blowing Dixie double four time You feel alright when you hear that music ring You step inside but you don't see too many faces Coming in out of the rain to hear the jazz go down Too much competition too many other places But not too many horns can make that sound Way on downsouth way on downsouth London town You check out Guitar George he knows all the chords Mind he's strictly rhythm he doesn't want to make it cry or sing And an old guitar is all he can afford When he gets up under the lights to play his thing And Harry doesn't mind if he doesn't make the scene He's got a daytime job he's doing alright He can play honky tonk just like anything Saving it up for Friday night With the Sultans with the Sultans of Swing And a crowd of young boys they're fooling around in the corner Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles The don't give a damn about any trumpet playing band It ain't what they call rock and roll And the Sultans played Creole And then the man he steps right up to the microphone And says at last just as the time bell rings 'Thank you goodnight now it's time to go home' and he makes it fast whith one more thing 'We are the Sultans of Swing' IN THE GALLERY Harry made a bareback rider proud and free upon a horse And a fine coalminer for the NCB that was

A fallen angel and Jesus on the cross A skating ballerina you should have seen her do the skater's walz Some people have got to paint and draw Harry had to work in clay and stone Like the waves coming to the shore It was in his blood and in his bones Ignored by all the trendy boys in London and in Leeds He might as well have been making toys or strings of beads He could not be in the gallery And then you get an artist says he doesn't want to paint at all He takes an empty canvas and sticks it on the wall The birds of feather all the phonies and all of the fakes While the dealers the get together And they decide who gets the breaks And who's going to be in the gallery No lies he wouldn't compromise No junk no bits of string And all the lies we subsidise That just don't mean a thing I've got to say he passed away in obscurity And now all the the vultures are comming down from the tree So he's going to be in the gallery WILD WEST END Stepping out to Angellucci's for my coffe beans Checking out the movies and the magazines Waitress she watches me crossing from the Borocco Bar I'm getting a pickup for my steel guitar I saw you walking out Shaftesbury Avenue Excuse me talking I wanna marry you This is seventh heaven street to me Don't be so proud You're just another angel in the crowd And I'm walking in the wild west end Walking with your wild best friend And my conductress on the number nineteen She was a honey Pink toenails and hands all dirty with money Greasy hair easy smile Made me feel nineteen for a while And I went down to Chinatown In the backroom it's a man's world All the money go down Duck inside the doorway gotta duck to eat

Right now feels alright now You and me we can't beat And a gogo dancing girl yes I saw her The deejay he say here's Mandy for ya I feel alright to see her But she's paid to do that stuff She's dancing high I move on by The close ups can get rough When you're walking in the wild west end LIONS Red sun go down way over dirty town Starlings are sweeping around crazy shoals A girl is there high heeling across the square Wind blows around in her hair and the flags upon the poles Waiting in the crowd to cross at the light She looks around to find a face she can like Church bell clinging on trying to get a crowd to Evensong Nobody cares to depend upon the chime it plays They're all in the station praying for trains Congregation late again It's getting darker all the time these flagpole days Drunk old soldier he gives her a fright He's a crazy lion howling for a fight Strap hanging gunshot sound Doors slamming on the overground Starlings are tough but the lions are made of stone Her evening paper is horror torn But there's hope later for Capricorns Her lucky stars give her just enough to get her home Then she's reading about a swing to the right But she's thinking about a stranger in the night I'm thinking about the lions tonight What happend to the lions

SKATEAWAY I seen a girl on a one way corridor Stealing down a wrong way street For all the world like an urban toreador She had wheels on on her feet Well the cars do the usual dances Same old cruise and the kerbside carwl But the rollergirl she's taking chances They just love to see her take them all No fears alone at night she's sailing through the crowd In her ears the phones are tight and the music's playing loud Hellelujah here she comes queen rollerball Enchante what can I say don't care at all You know she used to have wait around She used to be the lonely one But now that she can skate around town She's the only one No fears alone at night she's sailing through the crowd In her ears the phones are tight and the music's playing loud She gets rock n roll a rock n roll station And a rock n roll dream She's making movies on location She don't know what it means But the music make her wanna be the story And the story was whatever was the song what it was Rollergirl don't worry D.j. play the movies all night long She tortures taxi drivers just for fun She like to read their lips Says toro toro taxi see ya tomorrow my son I swear she let a big truck graze her hip She got her own world in the city You can't intrude on her

It never rains 7:54 --> Go to next, previous or home <-TELEGRAPH ROAD A long time ago came a man on a track Walking thirty miles with a sack on his back And he put down his load where he thought it was the best He made a home in the wilderness He built a cabin and a winter store And he ploughed up the ground by the cold lake shore And the other travellers came riding down the track And they never went further and they never went back Then came the churches then came the schools Then came the lawyers and the came the rules

The came the trains and the trucks with their loads And the dirty old track was the telegraph road Then came the mines - then came the ore Then there was the hard times then there was a war Telegraph sang a song about the world outside Telegraph road got so deep and so wide Like a rolling river... And my radio says tonight it's gonna freeze People driving home from the factories There's six lane of traffic Three lanes moving slow... I used to like to go to work but they shut it down I've got a right to go to work but there's no work here to be found Yes and they say we're gonna have to pay what's owed We're gonna have to reap from some seed that's been sowed And the birds up on the wires and the telepraph poles They can always fly away from this rain and this cold You can hear them singing out their telegraph code All the way down the telegraph road You know I'd sooner forget but I remember those nights When life was just a bet on a race between the lights You had your head on my shoulder you had your hand in my hair Now you act a little colder like you don't seem to care... But believe in me baby and I'll take you away From out of this darkness and into the day From these rivers of headlights these rivers of rain From the anger that lives on the streets with these names 'cos I've run every red light on memory lane I've seen desperation explode into flames And I don't wanna see it again... From all of these signs saying soory but we're closed All the way down the telegraph road PRIVATE INVESTIGATIONS It's a mystery to me - the game commences For the usual fee - plus expences Confidential information - it's in a diary This is my investigation - it's not a public inquiry I go checking out the reports - digging up the dirt You get to meet all sorts in this line of work Treachery an reason - there's always an excuse for it And when I find the reason I still get used to it

And what have you got at the end of the day? What have you got to take away? A bottle of whisky and a new set of lies Blinds on the window and a pain behind the eyes Scarred for life - no compensation private investigation INDUSTRIAL DISEASE Warning lights are flashing down the Quality Control Somebody threw a spanner and they threw him in the hole There's rumors in the loading bay and anger in the town Somebody blew the whistle and the walls came down There's a meeting in the boardroom they're trying to trace the smell There's leaking in the washroom there's a sneak in personnel Somewhere in the corridors someone was heard to sneeze 'goodness me could it be Industrial Disease?' The caretaker was crucified for sleeping at his post They're refusing to be pacified it's him they blame the most The watchdog's got rabies the foreman's got the fleas And everyone's concerned about Industrial Disease There's panic on the switchboard tongues are ties in knots Some come out in sympathy some come out in spots Some blame the management some blame the employees And everybody knows it's the Industrial Disease The work force is disgusted dows tools and walks Innocence is injured experience just talks Everyone seeks damages and everyone agrees that these are 'classic symptoms of a monetary squeeze' On ITV and BBC they talk about the curse Philosophy is useless theology is worse History boils over there's an economics freeze Sociologists invent words that mean 'Industrial Disease' Doctor Parkinson declared 'I'm not suprised to see you here You've got smokers cough from smoking Brewer's droop from drinking beer I don't know how you came to get the Bette Davis knees But worst of all young man you've got Industrial Disease' He wrote me a prescription he said 'you are depressed But I'm glad you came to see me to get this off your chest Come back and see me later - next patient please Send in another victim of Industrial Disease I go down to Speaker's Corner I'm thunderstruck They got free speech, tourists, police and trucks Two men say they're Jesus one of them must be wrong There's a protest singer singing a protest song - he says

Oh and it never rains around here It just comes pouring down You had no more volunteers So you got profiteers for to help you out With friends like that babe Good friends you had to do without And now they've taken the chains and the gears From off your merry-go-round Oh and it never rains around here It just pouring down And your new Romeo Was just a gigolo when he let you down See the faster they are babe The faster they get out of town Leaving make up stains and the tears Of a clown Yes and it never rains around here It just comes pouring down Oh you were just a roller coaster memory I don't know why I was even passing through I saw you making a date with Destiny When he came around here asking after you In the shadow of the Wheel Of Fortune You're busy trying to clear your name You say 'I may be guilty yeah that may be true But I'd be lying if I said I was to blame See we could have been major contenders We never got no money no breaks' You've got a list of all the major offenders You got a list of all their major mistakes And he's just standing in the shadows Yes and you smile that come-on smile Oh I can still hear you say as clear as the day 'I'd like to make it worth your while' Ah but it's a sad reminder When your organ grinder has to come to you for rent And all you've got to give him Is the use of your side-show tent Yes and that's all that remains of the years Spent doing the rounds And it never rains around here Well it just comes pouring down Now you know what they say about beggars You can't complain about the rules' You know what they say about beggars

You know who's the first to blame his tools You never gave a damn about who you pick up And leave laying bleeding on the ground You screw people over on the way up Because you thought that you were never coming down And he takes you out in Vaudeville Valley With his hand up smothering your screams And he screws you down in Tin Pan Alley In the city of a billion dreams

Confidential information - it's in a diary This is my investigation - it's not a public inquiry I go checking out the reports - digging up the dirt You get to meet all sorts in this line of work Treachery an reason - there's always an excuse for it And when I find the reason I still get used to it And what have you got at the end of the day? What have you got to take away? A bottle of whisky and a new set of lies Blinds on the window and a pain behind the eyes Scarred for life - no compensation private investigation SULTANS OF SWING You get a shiver in the dark It's raining in the park but meantime South of the river you stop and you hold everything A band is blowing Dixie double four time You feel alright when you hear that music ring You step inside but you don't see too many faces Coming in out of the rain to hear the jazz go down Too much competition too many other places But not too many horns can make that sound Way on downsouth way on downsouth London town You check out Guitar George he knows all the chords Mind he's strictly rhythm he doesn't want to make it cry or sing And an old guitar is all he can afford When he gets up under the lights to play his thing And Harry doesn't mind if he doesn't make the scene He's got a daytime job he's doing alright He can play honky tonk just like anything Saving it up for Friday night With the Sultans with the Sultans of Swing And a crowd of young boys they're fooling around in the corner Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles The don't give a damn about any trumpet playing band It ain't what they call rock and roll And the Sultans played Creole And then the man he steps right up to the microphone And says at last just as the time bell rings 'Thank you goodnight now it's time to go home' and he makes it fast whith one more thing 'We are the Sultans of Swing' TUNNEL OF LOVE Getting crazy on the waltzers but it's the life that i choose Sing about the sixblade sing about the switchback and a torture tattoo And I been riding on a ghost train where the cars they scream and slam And I don't know where I'll be tonight but I'd always tell you where I am In a screaming ring of faces I seen her standing in the light She had a ticket for the races just like me she was a victim of the night

I put my hand upon the lever said let it rock and let it roll I had the one arm bandit fever there was an arrow through my heart and soul And the big wheel keep on turning neon burning up above And I'm just high on the world Come on and take a low ride with me girl On the tunnel of love It's just the danger when you're riding at your own risk She said you are the perfect stranger she said baby let's keep it like this It's just a cakewalk twisting baby step right up and say Hey mister give me two give me two cos any two can play And the big wheel keep on turning neon burning up above And I'm just high on the world Come on and take a low ride with me girl On the tunnel of love Well it's been money for muscle another whirlgig Money for muscle another girl I dig Another hustle just to make it big And rockaway rockaway And girl it looks so pretty to me just like it always did Like the spanish city to me when we were kids Oh girl it looks so pretty to me just like it always did Like the spanish city to me when we were kids She took off a silver locket she said remember me by this She put her hand in my pocket I got a keepsake and a kiss And in the roar of dust and diesel I stood and watched her walk away I could have caught up with her easy enough but something must have made me stay And the big wheel keep on turning neon burning up above And I'm just high on the world Come on and take a low ride with me girl On the tunnel of love And now I'm searching through these carousels and the carnival arcades Searching everywhere from steeplechase to palisades In any shooting gallery where promises are made To rockaway rockaway from Cullercoasts and Whitley bay out to rockaway And girl it looks so pretty to me just like it always did Like the spanish city to me when we were kids Oh girl it looks so pretty to me just like it always did Like the spanish city to me when we were kids TELEGRAPH ROAD A long time ago came a man on a track Walking thirty miles with a sack on his back And he put down his load where he thought it was the best He made a home in the wilderness He built a cabin and a winter store And he ploughed up the ground by the cold lake shore And the other travellers came riding down the track And they never went further and they never went back Then came the churches then came the schools Then came the lawyers and the came the rules

The came the trains and the trucks with their loads And the dirty old track was the telegraph road Then came the mines - then came the ore Then there was the hard times then there was a war Telegraph sang a song about the world outside Telegraph road got so deep and so wide Like a rolling river... And my radio says tonight it's gonna freeze People driving home from the factories There's six lane of traffic Three lanes moving slow... I used to like to go to work but they shut it down I've got a right to go to work but there's no work here to be found Yes and they say we're gonna have to pay what's owed We're gonna have to reap from some seed that's been sowed And the birds up on the wires and the telepraph poles They can always fly away from this rain and this cold You can hear them singing out their telegraph code All the way down the telegraph road You know I'd sooner forget but I remember those nights When life was just a bet on a race between the lights You had your head on my shoulder you had your hand in my hair Now you act a little colder like you don't seem to care... But believe in me baby and I'll take you away From out of this darkness and into the day From these rivers of headlights these rivers of rain From the anger that lives on the streets with these names 'cos I've run every red light on memory lane I've seen desperation explode into flames And I don't wanna see it again... From all of these signs saying soory but we're closed All the way down the telegraph road SOLID ROCK Well take a look at that I made a castle in the sand Saying this is where it's at you know Couldn't understand now If I realised that the chances were slim How come I'm so suprised when the tide rolled in I wanna live on solid rock I'm gonna live on solid rock I wanna give don't wanna be blocked I'm gonna live on solid rock Well I'm sick of potential I'm sick of vanity now I'm sticking to essential reality now I don't know what's worse Try to make a silk purse Living an illusion living in confusion

Well a house of cards Was never built for shock You could blow it down in any kind of weather Now two solid rocks two solid blocks You know they're gonna stick Yeah they're gonna stick together Because the heart that you break That's the one that you rely on The bed that you make That's the one you gotta lie on When you point your fingers cos your plan fell through You got three more fingers pointing back at you I wanna live on solid rock I'm gonna live on solid rock I wanna give don't wanna be blocked I'm gonna live on solid rock

These mist covered mountains Are a home now for me But my home is the lowlands And always will be Some day you'll return to Your valleys and your farms And you'll no longer burn To be brothers in arms Through these fields of destruction Baptism of fire I've watched all your suffering As the battles raged higher And though they did hurt me so bad In the fear and alarm You did not desert me My brothers in arms There's so many different worlds So many different suns And we have just one world But we live in different ones Now the sun's gone to hell And the moon's riding high Let me bid you farewell Every man has to die But it's written in the starlight And every line on your palm We're fools to make war On our brothers in arms

I don't know how it happened It all took place so quick But all I can do is hand it to you And your latest trick Now it's past last call for alcohol Past recall has been here and gone The landlord finally paid us all The satin jazzmen have put away their horns And we're standing outside of this wonderland Looking so bereaved and so bereft Like a Bowery bum when he finally understands The bottle's empty and there's nothing left I don't know how it happened It was faster than the eye could flick But now all I can do is hand it to you And your latest trick ON EVERY STREET There's gotta be a record of you some place You gotta be on somebody's books The lowdown - a picture of your face Your injured looks The sacred and profane The pleasure and the pain Somewhere your fingerprints remain concrete And it's your face I'm looking for on every street A ladykiller - regulation tattoo Silver spurs on his heels Says - what can I tell you as I'm standing next to you She threw herself under my wheels Oh it's a dangerous road And a hazardous load And the fireworks over liberty expode in the heat And it's your face I'm looking for on every street A three-chord symphony crashes into space The moon is hanging upside down I don't know why it is I'm still on the case It's a ravenous town And you still refuse to be traced Seems to me such a waste And every victory has a taste that's bittersweet And it's your face I'm looking for on every street

YOU AND YOUR FRIEND Will you and your friend come around Are you and your friend gonna get on down Will you and your friend come around Or are you and your friend gonna let me down If you talk to one another I'm a hungry man Let me know one way or the other So I can make my plans Will you and your friend come around Are you and your friend gonna get on down Will you and your friend come around Or are you and your friend gonna let me down I relive the situation Still see in in my mind You got my imagination Working overtime MONEY FOR NOTHING Now look at them yo-yo's that's the way you do it You play the guitar on the MTV That ain't workin' that's the way you do it Money for nothin' and chicks for free Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it Lemme tell ya them guys ain't dumb Maybe get a blister on your little finger Maybe get a blister on your thumb We gotta install microwave ovens Custom kitchen deliveries We gotta move these refrigerators We gotta move these colour TV's See the little faggot with the earring and the makeup Yeah buddy that's his own hair That little faggot got his own jet airplane That little faggot he's a millionaire We gotta install microwave ovens Custom kitchens deliveries We gotta move these refrigerators We gotta move these colour TV's I shoulda learned to play the guitar I shoulda learned to play them drums

Look at that mama, she got it stickin' in the camera Man we could have some fun And he's up there, what's that? Hawaiian noises? Bangin' on the bongoes like a chimpanzee That ain't workin' that's the way you do it Get your money for nothin' get your chicks for free We gotta install microwave ovens Custom kitchen deliveries We gotta move these refrigerators We gotta move these colour TV's, Lord Now that ain't workin' that's the way you do it You play the guitar on the MTV That ain't workin' that's the way you do it Money for nothin' and your chicks for free Money for nothin' and chicks for free BROTHERS IN ARMS These mist covered mountains Are a home now for me But my home is the lowlands And always will be Some day you'll return to Your valleys and your farms And you'll no longer burn To be brothers in arms Through these fields of destruction Baptism of fire I've watched all your suffering As the battles raged higher And though they did hurt me so bad In the fear and alarm You did not desert me My brothers in arms There's so many different worlds So many different suns And we have just one world But we live in different ones Now the sun's gone to hell And the moon's riding high Let me bid you farewell Every man has to die But it's written in the starlight And every line on your palm

We're fools to make war On our brothers in arms

A foghorn blowing out wild and cold A policeman shines a light upon my shoulder Up comes a coaster fast and silent in the night Over my shoulder all you can see are the pilot lights No money on our jackets and our jeans are torn Your hands are cold but your lips are warm She can see him on the jetty where they used to go She can feel him in the places where the sailors go When she's walking by the river and the railway line She can still hear him whisper Let's go down to the waterline SIX BLADE KNIFE Your six blade knife can do anything for you Anything you want it to One blade for breaking my heart One blade for tearing me apart Your six blade knife - do anything for you You can take away my mind like you take away the top of a tin When you come up from behind and lay it down cold on my skin Took a stone from my soul when I was lame Just so you could make me tame You take away my mind like you take away the top of a tin I'd like to be free of it now - I don't want it no more I'd like to be free of it now - you know I don't want it no more Everybody got a knife it can be just what they want it to be A needle a wife or something that you just can't see You know it keeps you strong Yes and it'll do me wrong Your six blade knife - do anything for you WATER OF LOVE High and dry in the long hot day Lost and lonley every day Got the flats all around me sky up above I need a little water of love I've been too long lonely and my heart feels pain Crying out for some soothing rain I believe I have taken enough I need a little water of love

Water of love deep in the ground No water here to be found Some day baby when the river runs free It'll carry that water of love to me There's a bird up in a tree sitting up high Waiting for me to die If I don't get some water soon I'll be dead and gone in the afternoon Once I had a woman I could call my own Once I had a woman now my woman is gone Once there was a river now there's a stone You know it's evil when you're living alone WILD WEST END Stepping out to Angellucci's for my coffe beans Checking out the movies and the magazines Waitress she watches me crossing from the Borocco Bar I'm getting a pickup for my steel guitar I saw you walking out Shaftesbury Avenue Excuse me talking I wanna marry you This is seventh heaven street to me Don't be so proud You're just another angel in the crowd And I'm walking in the wild west end Walking with your wild best friend And my conductress on the number nineteen She was a honey Pink toenails and hands all dirty with money Greasy hair easy smile Made me feel nineteen for a while And I went down to Chinatown In the backroom it's a man's world All the money go down Duck inside the doorway gotta duck to eat Right now feels alright now You and me we can't beat And a gogo dancing girl yes I saw her The deejay he say here's Mandy for ya I feel alright to see her But she's paid to do that stuff She's dancing high I move on by The close ups can get rough When you're walking in the wild west end

SULTANS OF SWING You get a shiver in the dark It's raining in the park but meantime South of the river you stop and you hold everything A band is blowing Dixie double four time You feel alright when you hear that music ring You step inside but you don't see too many faces Coming in out of the rain to hear the jazz go down Too much competition too many other places But not too many horns can make that sound Way on downsouth way on downsouth London town You check out Guitar George he knows all the chords Mind he's strictly rhythm he doesn't want to make it cry or sing And an old guitar is all he can afford When he gets up under the lights to play his thing And Harry doesn't mind if he doesn't make the scene He's got a daytime job he's doing alright He can play honky tonk just like anything Saving it up for Friday night With the Sultans with the Sultans of Swing And a crowd of young boys they're fooling around in the corner Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles The don't give a damn about any trumpet playing band It ain't what they call rock and roll And the Sultans played Creole And then the man he steps right up to the microphone And says at last just as the time bell rings 'Thank you goodnight now it's time to go home' and he makes it fast whith one more thing 'We are the Sultans of Swing' LIONS Red sun go down way over dirty town Starlings are sweeping around crazy shoals A girl is there high heeling across the square Wind blows around in her hair and the flags upon the poles Waiting in the crowd to cross at the light She looks around to find a face she can like Church bell clinging on trying to get a crowd to Evensong Nobody cares to depend upon the chime it plays They're all in the station praying for trains Congregation late again

It's getting darker all the time these flagpole days Drunk old soldier he gives her a fright He's a crazy lion howling for a fight Strap hanging gunshot sound Doors slamming on the overground Starlings are tough but the lions are made of stone Her evening paper is horror torn But there's hope later for Capricorns Her lucky stars give her just enough to get her home Then she's reading about a swing to the right But she's thinking about a stranger in the night I'm thinking about the lions tonight What happend to the lions WHAT'S THE MATTER BABY? There's a shadow hanging over the valley Total eclipse of the moon Closing up the gates of the city The wind plays a wild storm Don't you put the lock upon the window Don't you put the bar on the door Don't you cry for the rain in the sky You seen the storm before Well, what's the matter with you baby Baby, what's the matter now Tell me what's the matter you running in the shadows Every time you hear the wild man howl C'mon, tell me what's the matter with you babe Baby, what's the matter now What's the matter now you running in the shadows Every time you hear the wild man howl Lightning gonna strike at midnight Thunder gonna shake it around Don't you flinch don't give an inch Just a-let the flood come down C'mon, tell me what's the matter with you babe Baby, what's the matter now What's the matter now you running in the shadows Every time you hear the wild man howl C'mon, tell me what's the matter with you babe Baby, what's the matter now

What's the matter now you running in the shadows Every time you hear the wild man howl TUNNEL OF LOVE Getting crazy on the waltzers but it's the life that i choose Sing about the sixblade sing about the switchback and a torture tattoo And I been riding on a ghost train where the cars they scream and slam And I don't know where I'll be tonight but I'd always tell you where I am In a screaming ring of faces I seen her standing in the light She had a ticket for the races just like me she was a victim of the night I put my hand upon the lever said let it rock and let it roll I had the one arm bandit fever there was an arrow through my heart and soul And the big wheel keep on turning neon burning up above And I'm just high on the world Come on and take a low ride with me girl On the tunnel of love It's just the danger when you're riding at your own risk She said you are the perfect stranger she said baby let's keep it like this It's just a cakewalk twisting baby step right up and say Hey mister give me two give me two cos any two can play And the big wheel keep on turning neon burning up above And I'm just high on the world Come on and take a low ride with me girl On the tunnel of love Well it's been money for muscle another whirlgig Money for muscle another girl I dig Another hustle just to make it big And rockaway rockaway And girl it looks so pretty to me just like it always did Like the spanish city to me when we were kids Oh girl it looks so pretty to me just like it always did Like the spanish city to me when we were kids She took off a silver locket she said remember me by this She put her hand in my pocket I got a keepsake and a kiss And in the roar of dust and diesel I stood and watched her walk away I could have caught up with her easy enough but something must have made me stay And the big wheel keep on turning neon burning up above And I'm just high on the world Come on and take a low ride with me girl On the tunnel of love

And now I'm searching through these carousels and the carnival arcades Searching everywhere from steeplechase to palisades In any shooting gallery where promises are made To rockaway rockaway from Cullercoasts and Whitley bay out to rockaway And girl it looks so pretty to me just like it always did Like the spanish city to me when we were kids Oh girl it looks so pretty to me just like it always did Like the spanish city to me when we were kids

Show me a place where I don't have to worry And that's where I belong Show me a place where I don't have to hurry And that's where I belong Give me the time, so I can change my mind Where it don't matter if I'm wrong Show me a place where I don't have to worry And that's where I belong FEEL LIKE GOING HOME Lord I feel like going home I tried and I failed and I'm tired and weary Everything I ever done was wrong And I feel like going home Lord I tried to see it through But it was too much for me And now I'm coming home to you And I feel like going home Cloudy skies are rolling in And not a friend around to help me From all the places I have been And I feel like going home Lord I feel like going home I tried and I failed and I'm tired and weary Everything I ever done was wrong And I feel like going home LONESOME WIND BLUES I hear the wind blowin' through the lonesome pines, I know my love is gone too, I hear the wind blowin' through the lonesome pines, 'cause I'm blue, lonesome blue. She's gone so far, that's why I'm leaving, left me here alone among the trees, And all that I have left is just a memory, And it always haunts me with a breeze. I hear the wind blowin' through the lonesome pines, I know my love is gone too, I hear the wind blowin' through the lonesome pines, 'cause I'm blue, lonesome blue.

I leave today to try to find my darlin', I don't know where on earth she can be, I know that I can never live without her, Each night in dreams her face is all I see. I hear the wind blowin' through the lonesome pines, I know my love has gone too, I hear the wind blowin' through the lonesome pines, That's why I'm blue, lonesome blue. HOBO'S LULLABY Go to sleep, you weary hobo Let the town drift slowly by, Listen to the steel rails humming That's the hobo's lullaby. Do not think about tomorrow, Let tomorrow come and go. Tonight you have a nice warm boxcar Free from all the ice and snow. I know the police cause you trouble, They make trouble everywhere, But when you die and go to heaven, Well, you won't find police there. Now do not let your heart be troubled If the world calls you a bum, 'Cause if your mother lives, she loves you Well, you are still your mother's son.

Yearning, we were yearning Greenlight blindin' on the rail Burning, we were burning And the line unwindin' to the Holy Grail To the future gleaming on the blue horizon And a golden girl on golden sand Dreaming, fantasising in another world For Metroland I've been still waiting And I've been jangled And I've gone layin' I've been a rolling stone In Berlin Then I've been rambled Not afraid to walk alone And now I take, my midnight ramble Do I fold or play What's in my hand What's at stake, what's the gamble Do I stay in Metroland Dreams, yesterday's laughter Ghosts and lovers come back to play But dreams have the morning after Run for cover in the light of day I've something real, worth holding onto I can belong to, and understand Made my deal I will go onto Make my peace with Metroland, with Metroland Metroland, Metroland, Metroland

Storybook Love - DeVille, Willy (04:24) STORYBOOK LOVE - DEVILLE, WILLY Come my love I'll tell you a tale Of a boy and girl and their love story And how he loved her oh so much And all the charms she did possess Now this did happen once upon a time When things were not so complex How he worshipped the ground she walked And when he looked in her eyes he became obsessed

My love is like a storybook story But it's as real as the feelings I feel My love is like a storybook story But it's as real as the feelings I feel It's as real as the feelings I feel This love was stronger than the powers so dark A prince could have within his keeping His spells to weave and steal a heart Within her breast but only sleeping My love is like a storybook story But it's as real as the feelings I feel My love is like a storybook story But it's as real as the feelings I feel It's as real as the feelings I feel Now he said, "Don't you know I love you oh so much And lay my heart at the foot of your dress?" She said, "Don't you know that these storybook loves Always have a happy ending?" Then he swooped her up just like in the books And on his stallion they rode away My love is like a storybook story But it's as real as the feelings I feel My love is like a storybook story But it's as real as the feelings I feel

WHAT IT IS The drinking dens are spilling out and staggering in the square, there's lads and lasses falling about and a crackelling in the air then around the dungeon doors there's shelters in the queues, everybody's looking for somebody's arms to fall into It's what it is. That's what it is man

Here's frost on the graves and the monuments but the taverns are warm in town People curse the government and shovel hot food down Lights are out in cityhall, the castle and the keep moon shines down upon it all, the legless and the sleepless Cold on a tollgate where the wagons creeping through Cold on a tollgate God knows what I can do Hmm that's what it is, it's what it is now The garrison sleeps and the citadel with the ghosts and the ancient stones High on the parapet the Scottish pipers stands alone High on the wind the howling runes speak of the rule And something from the past just comes and stares into my soul Cold on a tollgate where the Caledonian moves Cold on a tollgate God knows what I can do with you That's what it is, it's what it is now What it is, it's what it is now now now There's a chink of light as a burning wick there's a lantern in the tower Wee Willie Winkie with the candle sticks still writing songs in the mean wee hours On Charlotte Street they take a walking stick from my hotel The ghost of Dirty Dick is still in search of little Nell That's what it is, it's what it is now What it is, it's what it is now now now

When the smoke had cleared and the dust was still She was standing there and speaking my name Guaranteed she looked like an angel I couldnt think of what I should say When Adam saw Eve in the garden I believe he felt the same way I handed her up on the wagon And I loaded up her trunk behind She was sitting up there with the gold in her hair And I tried to get a hold of my mind.

Think you could love me Mary Think we got a chance of life Do you think you could love me Mary Now you oughta be my wife We finally headed out of the station And we drove up the home trail And when we came on the farm she laid a hand on my arm I thought my resolution would fail And I froze as she stepped in the doorway Stood there as still as could be I said I know it ain't much, it needs a woman's touch Lord she turned around and looked at me Think you could love me Mary Think we got a chance of life Do you think you could love me Mary Now you oughta be my wife We had a prairie wedding There was a preacher and a neighbour or two I gave my golden thing an gold wedding ring And the both of us said I do When the sun's going down on the prairie, And the gold in her hair is a flame I say Do you really love me Mary and I hold her and I whisper her name. Think you could love me Mary Think we got a chance of life Do you think you could love me Mary Now you oughta be my wife WANDERLUST Big black cloud On a yellow plane Sure enough it Looks like rain Packin' up all our Faith and trust Me and the wanderlust Open windows Empty bed and chair Who's that callin' Ain't nobody there I look behind me And I see there's just Me and the wanderlust

Lady luck's still a mystery With her head on my shoulder And I dont know why I still want her to dance I gusess that's all history What it is is I'm older And I'm still a fool For a one-way romance Her dice were red rubies They rolled and they tumbeled And I never saw time Running out with my roll And in the wasteland of cut glass My dreams were crumbeled And I payed with whathever I had left for a soul Now the dawn's has broken eve On an empty horizon No reason for folding No rason to stay It's too soon to be leaving Too late for critizising They go drifting away ONE MORE MATINEE Here's one of the two of us In 1954 don't laugh I keep all of the pictures Are you going to take a photograph Here's something nice for you A dear old thing came to a show Last time here we did An interview on local radio Make yourself at home my darling Come on in Hand me down that jar love Can I offer you a gin We're proud to be the oldest Ugly sisters in variety There's not the glamour now you see What happened to society There's another light bulb gone They don't all answer to the switch I don't know how we carry on And her she couldn't care the bitch

Last night I thought I heard my name Well it was too dark to see, but it had to be, The voice was just the same That's the way it always starts, Sitting here and waiting on the beating of my heart. So tell me why should it have to be this way Why can't it be all right, Why can't I sleep at night? Why should it have to be this way? Why must there be this price to pay? Now all the streets are dark and bare, Oh, if you can live in this town, And stick around, you can live anywhere That's the way it always starts, Sitting here and waiting on the beating of my heart.
