THE BOTTOM LINE (Jones)

The horses are on the track Theres a new dance thats going around When the hits start flying you gotta get down All the young people dance round the square The old time groove is really nowhere So when you reach the bottom line The only thing to do is climb Pick yourself up of the floor Don`t know what you`re waiting for A dance to the tune of economic decline Is when you do the bottom line Nagging questions always remain Why did it happen and who was to blame? So when you reach the bottom line The only thing to do is climb Pick yourself up of the floor Don`t know what you`re waiting for The horses are on the track They`ve been doing it down at the zoo And I can show ya heres what to do All of the States and over UK Even the Soviets are swinging away So when you reach the bottom line The only thing to do is climb Pick yourself up of the floor Anything you want is yours "...and they`re off" The road aheads` clear as a motorway Give us this day our daily bread and send us on our way Perchance to dream or take a holiday Romeo oh Romeo You gotta have your say When you reach the bottom line The only thing to do is climb Pick yourself up off the floor Don`t know what you`re waiting for When you reach the bottom line The only thing to do is climb Pick yourself up off the floor Anything you want is yours Part two - Part two I`m gonna take you to part two part two I`m gonna take you to part two Un deux Un deux Toujours tout le monde Ca-va You got four more years of the same old jive Now you must be wonderin' how you're gonna stay alive Now take a tip from one who knows `Cause I can`t find a way to go Romeo Romeo this gotta be the show Romeo Romeo this gotta be the show Romeo Romeo this gotta be the show Romeo Romeo That`s not to say that it`s gonna be easy And no one here gets a free ride We`re on the block and there must be a reason Or no one here gets out alive Romeo Romeo this gotta be the show Romeo Romeo this gotta be the show Romeo Romeo this gotta be the show Romeo Romeo You gotta work hard for yourself Then you gotta come together for the Commonwealth Now I'm not down on weed in its place So make sure you're not out of it on your face Bozo bozo alcohol no no Bozo bozo alcohol no no You gotta be smart stay on the one You can't hold up supermarkets with a price tag gun If you wanna rob a bank you must be aware You gotta use the computer upstairs You can't disable a tank in urban warfare When you're blobbing out in your living room chair Romeo Romeo Romeo Romeo We`re not talking `bout the third world war or who's not being fair We`re just saying they could drop the bomb and we don`t even care We`re not talking `bout the third world war or who's not being fair We`re just saying they could drop the bomb and we don`t even care Romeo Romeo this gotta be the show Romeo Romeo this gotta be the show Romeo Romeo this gotta be the show Romeo Romeo When you reach the bottom line The only thing to do is climb Pick yourself up off the floor Don`t know what you`re waiting for When you reach the bottom line The only thing to do is climb Pick yourself up off the floor Anything you want is yours When you reach the bottom line The only thing to do is climb Pick yourself up off the floor Don`t know what you`re waiting for When you reach the bottom line The only thing to do is climb Pick yourself up off the floor Anything you want is yours

E=MC2 (Jones/Letts/Donovan)

Somebody I never met But in a way I know Didn`t think that you could get So much from a picture show Man dies first reel People ask what`s the deal? This aint how it`s supposed to be Don`t like no aborigine Ritual ideas relativety Only buildings no people prophecy Timeslide place to hide nudge reality Foresight minds wide magic imagery Took a trip in Powis Square Pop star dyed his hair No fans to scream and shout When mobsters came to flush him out Gangland slaying underground New identity must be found On the left bank for a while Insanity Bohemian style Ritual ideas relativety Only buildings no people prophecy Timeslide place to hide nudge reality Foresight minds wide magic imagery Met a dwarf that was no good Dressed like little Red Riding Hood Bad habit taking life Calling card a six inch knife Ran off really fast Mumbled something `bout the past Best sex I`ve ever seen As if each moment was the last Drops of blood colour slide Funeral for his bride But it`s him who`s really dead Gets to take the funeral ride Ritual ideas relativety Only buildings no people prophecy Timeslide place to hide nudge reality Foresight minds wide magic imagery Space guy fell from the sky Scratched my head and wondered why Time slide into time Across international dateline Scientist eats bubblegum Hall of fame baseball Senators a Hoodlum Big chiefs in the hall Ritual ideas relativety Only buildings no people prophecy Timeslide place to hide nudge reality Foresight minds wide magic imagery Stray thoughts fear to tread Placed upon the screen instead Shes my flame too hot to hold Had to settle for her cold Bloodlust - Greek God - Gold discovery Gone bust - Tight wad - Slow recovery Axe job - Flame thrower - Ironbar and gun Betting shop - New owner - A walk in the sun Ritual ideas relativety Only buildings no people prophecy Timeslide place to hide nudge reality Foresight minds wide magic imagery Spread the news the Maestros back With a beat - Box soundtrack The King of brains - Queen of the sack` Executives have heart attack It`s assault course celluloid The money makers would avoid Sometimes notions get reversed Centre of the universe Ritual ideas relativety Only buildings no people prophecy Timeslide place to hide nudge reality Foresight minds wide magic imagery

MEDICINE SHOW (Jones/Letts)

Covered wagon medicine show Take you to the place where the healing flows Weak in spirit we got the juice Wont save your soul it`ll shine your shoes Treated king to kangaroo Santa Fe to Timbuktu Don`t be fooled by imitation This is the stuff that cured a nation We took the tube and the high plains too Never stopped long just passing through A drop of the laughter of the maids of France Makes a hopeless cripple dance It was really vile weather When we got to tarred and feathered You could hear the six guns sound As they chased us out of town In India we`re all the rave Discovered that its great as aftershave Dropped in the sea just off Japan Swapped 20 bottles for an aqua-walkman Immunity from ridicule Improves your brains if you`re a fool And I read in the Middle East They traded some for a hostage release Now if you`re bald it`ll give you hair If you got straight trousers it`ll give you flares Feeling up you`ll get depressed Out of style here`s a brand new dress It was really vile weather When we got to tarred and feathered You could hear the six guns sound As they chased us out of town The stuff we sell is just the best Passing all consumer test Days of heaven nights of sin Voodoo stick and sharks fin When all around you seems like hell Just one sip will make you well Multipurpose in a jar If you aint ill it`ll fix your car In days of yore for all bad feelings Washing socks and stripping ceilings Nowadays its used medicinally For all known human malady It was really vile weather When we got to tarred and feathered You could hear the six guns sound As they chased us out of town Guaranteed don`t you know Money back? You`ll get a no! It`s the one and only medicine show

HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD (Jones/Letts)

The Messiahs of the milk bar Hellraisers to the end Had a drop to many In a toast to all their friends Movie stars and writers Are present a to z Now these ain`t common people They`re personalities And they`ve all got a story Tattle talk from Tinseltown Some of them survivors Others gone to ground There`s Brendan B and Hunter T Whats a poet got to say Hunter`s looking for a story About the IRA Lenny isn`t laughing He nearly lost his life A transexual from the Transvaal Slipped in as his wife It`s a star studded scandal So raise your glass my friend The Messiahs of the milk bar Hellraisers to the end And they`ve all got a story Tattle talk from Tinseltown Some of them survivors Others gone to ground Bukowski wants to talk But he`s had too much to drink Threw up in the piano `Cause he thought it was the sink Little Richard and Sal Dali Singing out of key Both hallucinated The Sandoz was for free Osbornes at a party Colin Wilson`s on the line Saying listen Johnny Baby That catchphrase is mine" Flynn and Reed in conversation Reowned throughout the land Used a calculator Workout who`s the better man Now Errols` got the looks And Ollis` got the strenght One is talking numbers And the others` talking lenght Fattys feeling frisky Orders more champagne Women run out screaming "Oh no not again!" And they`ve all got a story Tattle talk from Tinseltown Some of them survivors Others gone to ground It`s a star studded scandal So raise your glass my friend The Messiahs of the milk bar Hellraisers to the end The Messiahs of the milk bar Hellraisers to the end

CONTACT (Jones/Donovan)

Feelings fly around Around up in the air Bouncing off the walls Getting under my hair On the carpet in the weave Up in trees on the leaves Feelings flying everywhere I`m on the right track For what I want to say I got to get it out There ain`t no other way To make contact There ain`t no getting away From how I feel today Feelings flying around Around up in the air Out in the hall And sitting in my chair I`ve seen them on the train Coming down with the rain Feelings flying everywhere I`m on the right track For what I want to say I got to get it out There ain`t no other way To make contact There ain`t no getting away From how I feel today Feelings flying around Around up in the air Some are really small They come from over there Hard to ignore I see them all the more Feelings flying everywhere I`m on the right track For what I want to say I got to get it out There ain`t no other way To make contact There ain`t no getting away From how I feel today I`m on the right track For what I want to say I got to get it out There ain`t no other way To make contact There ain`t no getting away From how I feel today I`m on the right track For what I want to say I got to get it out There ain`t no other way To make contact There ain`t no getting away From how I feel today

FREE (Jones/Donovan)

If I do what I wanted Just don`t have the time I wanna ride my motorcycle Into the sunshine My TV`s laughin` We could only feel small Now come silent into this cell All I can see is these walls And I never wanna see another shopping mall Oh Free To be what I will Oh Free I`ll keep it up till I`m Free But I wont have nothing at all This is my life Believe it I will pay But why should I care about all that today I need a head start And I don`t wanna stall Gonna take a bulldozer to break down the walls And I never wanna see another shopping mall Oh Free To be what I will Oh Free I`ll keep it up till I`m Free But I wont have nothing at all Oh Free To be what I will Oh Free I`ll keep it up till I`m Free But I wont have nothing at all Oh Free To be what I will Oh Free I`ll keep it up till I`m Free But I wont have nothing at all

RUSH (Jones)

If I have my time again I would do it all the same Ain`t change a single thing Even when I was the blind For the heartache and the pain Got a cause throughout my ears How I`d love to be your man Through the laughter and the tears Situation no win Rush for the change of atmosphere I can`t go on so I give in Gotta get myself right outta here Now I`m fully grown And I know where it`s at Somehow I stayed thin While the other guys got fat All the chances that are blown And the times that I`ve been down I didn`t get to high Kept my feet on the ground Situation no win Rush for the change of atmosphere I can`t go on so I give in Gotta get myself right outta here And of all my friends You`ve been the best to me Soon will be tha day When I repay you hands and knees Broken hearts are hard to mend I know I`ve had my share But life just carries on Even when I`m not there Situation no win Rush for the change of atmosphere I can`t go on so I give in Gotta get myself right outta here Situation no win Rush for the change of atmosphere I can`t go on so I give in Gotta get myself right outta here Gotta get myself right Gotta get myself right Gotta get myself right Outta there Gotta get myself right Gotta get myself right Gotta get myself right Outta there

LOOKING FOR A SONG (Jones)

Looking for a song About 3.30 long A song that I can sing It don`t need no complicating theme I`d better take you further away And back this is the base Some things that got away It don`t need no complicating theme Complicating theme It ain`t as easy as it looks Coming up with all these hooks Remember that it has to swing It don`t need no complicating theme Do you feel you want to play Well if you do that`s OK Maybe add a little sting It don`t need no complicating theme Complicating theme We`re going over this bridge Quite fast like we always do Somewhere at about the middle of the last After chorus two Here we got the drums bass and guitars And a teacher too And we`re going to a town near you Looking for a song Looking for a song Looking for a song About 3.30 long A song that I can sing It don`t need no complicating theme A melody with verbal rage About this little pain Something had got a ring It don`t need no complicating theme Complicating theme Yeah it ain`t as easy as it looks Coming up with all these hooks Remember that it has to swing It don`t need no complicating theme Do you feel you want to play Well if you do then that`s OK Maybe add a little sting It don`t need no complicating theme Complicating theme It don`t need no complicating theme
