GOT TO WAKE UP (Jones)

Message from dreamland Early in the morning You gotta wake up Around my head Message from dreamland Early in the morning You gotta wake up And get out of bed Gonna tell ya bout A friend of mine He never gets up to see then sun shine Sun shine You don`t know bout Breakfast in the morning You lie an bed just Sleeping all the time Message from dreamland Early in the morning You gotta wake up Around my head Message from dreamland Early in the morning You gotta wake up And get out of bed Now hear our words Hear our words He ain`t got no money Money His girlfriend gave up where he had lied No matter how hard she would try to wake him No matter how hard he just wouldn`t rise Rise Message from dreamland Early in the morning You gotta wake up Around my head Message from dreamland Early in the morning You gotta wake up And get out of bed He missed the day Missed the day Always outta time now Out of time with a constant flow He missed the day Missed the day And he`s always late now He don`t have that Should I get up and go Message from dreamland Early in the morning You gotta wake up Around my head Message from dreamland Early in the morning You gotta wake up And get out of bed Message from dreamland Early in the morning You gotta wake up Around my head Message from dreamland Early in the morning You gotta wake up And get out of bed Message from dreamland Early in the morning You gotta wake up Around my head Message from dreamland Early in the morning You gotta wake up And get out of bed Message from dreamland Early in the morning You gotta wake up Around my head Message from dreamland Early in the morning You gotta wake up And get out of bed Message from dreamland Early in the morning You gotta wake up Around my head Message from dreamland Early in the morning

HARROW ROAD (Jones/Stonadge/Fisher/Hare) (feat. Ranking Roger)

I saw Elvis washing clothes In the lauderette by the Grove Washing powder on his nose Down the Harrow Road He was talkin bout a song Had it all but got it wrong Now he wants to join the band And play along So many stories being told Down Harrow Road Since you were young intil you`re old Down Harrow Road Down the Harrow Road There`s this bloke who thinks he`s handy Selling herbs and home made brandy He comes all the way from Wembley Down to Harrow Road You see over the cemetry wall From the bridge about to fall Though they`re working all the night They`ll never finish it all So many stories being told Down Harrow Road Since you were young intil you`re old Down Harrow Road Down the Harrow Road I was having a smoke at Royal Oak It was raining down on me I was getting soaked and it`s no joke Tryin to finish my LP So many stories being told Down Harrow Road Since you were young intil you`re old Down Harrow Road Down the Harrow Road So many stories being told Down Harrow Road Since you were young intil you`re old Down Harrow Road Down the Harrow Road So many stories being told Down Harrow Road Since you were young intil you`re old Down Harrow Road Down the Harrow Road Down the Harrow Road

LOOKING FOR A SONG (Jones/Portaluri/Sion/Zefret)

Looking for a song About 3.30 long A song that I can sing It don`t need no complicating theme A melody reverberates A backbeat synchopates Something has got to ring It don`t need no complicated 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 complicated theme Do you feel what you play Well if you do that is OK Maybe add a little string It don`t need no complicating theme Complicating theme We`re going over this bridge Of bars like we always do Somewhere roundabout the middle of the last After chorus two Here we got the drums bass and guitars And a DJ too And we`re coming 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 reverberates A backbeat synchopates Something has got to ring It don`t need no complicated 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 complicated theme Do you feel what you play Well if you do then that`s OK Maybe add a little string It don`t need no complicated theme Complicating theme It don`t need no complicated theme

SOME PEOPLE (Jones/Hawkins)

None of us are perfect But some don`t even try Sat on your fat asses Watch the world go by Some seek vindication And want their pound in flesh Where`d you find that know-how To sort out all the mess Some people thrive On watchin peoples lives Waiting for a chance to do `em down Easy to critisize I`ve got nothing to hide This city really could be a small town Small town talk And we don`t ever love To take a long long time Make sure you get your turn Yeah That`s right Backstabbing frenzy Bend over then you scream One thing is for certain And that`s we never learn Some say I'm a fool now He lives his life in Hell But though I live in Porquee I know the feeling well Some people thrive On watchin peoples lives Waiting for a chance to do `em down Easy to critisize I`ve got nothing to hide This city really could be a small town Small town talk And we don`t ever love To take a long long time Make sure you get your turn Yeah That`s right If you have ambitions Keep your eyes on the prize Try to have compassion And come to realize To know the truth within you And go on tellin' lies But this perpetuation Is really none to wise Some people thrive On watchin peoples lives Waiting for a chance to do `em down Easy to critisize I`ve got nothing to hide This city really could be a small town Small town talk And we don`t ever love To take a long long time Make sure you get your turn Yeah That`s right Don`t wanna hear what you gotta say Please you keep out of my way now `Cause I can`t hear a word you say now Thanks for makin` me stayin` now Alright Come on Get away Hop away Alright Come on Get away Ride away Some people thrive On watchin peoples lives Waiting for a chance to do `em down Easy to critisize I`ve got nothing to hide This city really could be a small town

SLENDER LORIS (Jones)

MELANCHOLY MAYBE (Jones/Stonadge)

See that guy over there He`s as crazy as hell Spending his time inside a wishing well Gazing at water Saying what if I... And he`s still there gazing in six months time He`s got a girl that`s crazy `bout him But her heart is locked away from him He doesn`t realise that he holds the key To unlock the pain and set them free But that`s alright A little melancholy maybe That`s a part of you see On a one way ticket Headed to nowheresville I know `cause I`ve already been Heard about Sister Elly was a party girl Now she`ve seen the troubles of a future world Tellin` everybody when the bombs gonna drop And she`s packed in a job at the corner shop She joined the church Help the get away Now she sees the Lord every time she prays Asks for forgiveness for all our sins But when she sits down she doesn`t know where to begin But that`s alright A little melancholy maybe That`s a part of you see On a one way ticket Headed for nowheresville I know `cause I`ve already been A little bit of la la la la love A little bit of la la la la love A little bit of la la la la love Where d`ya think you`re goin` You ain`t goin` nowhere Ain`t no way of knowing If you`ve not been there But that`s alright A little melancholy maybe That`s a part of you see On a one way ticket Headed for nowhere I know `cause I`ve already been Thats alright A little melancholy maybe That`s a part of you see On a one way ticket Headed for nowheresville I know `cause I`ve already been Yeah I know `cause I`ve already been I said I know `cause I`ve already been

OVER THE RISE (Jones)

".....We`ve got to keep up with the Joneses." But the moonlight Was a good night To socialise No one was uptight We were alright Over the rise Now far you bet me You would let me If you were surprised Now you`ve met me You wont forget me Over the rise Over the rise Over the rise It`s been a long long time Over the rise If were loved dear It could be nice here And the same applies To you dear In your third year Over the rise If you`re right here And you can`t tell It`s quite a disguise But you adapted With your dust pan Over the rise Over the rise Over the rise It`s been a long long time Over the rise Over the rise Over the rise It`s been a long long time Over the rise Over the rise Over the rise It`s been a long long time Over the rise Over the rise It`s been a long long time Over the rise It`s been a long long time Over the rise

WHY IS IT? (Jones/Stonadge)

Why is it baby that we never see things clearly Why is it baby that we hurt the ones we love Why is it baby that we`re taking everything so freely Why is it baby that we can`t stop fooling around You always said we had a real good time And I believed you `Cause I`ve been following you so completely Every step of the way But now we`re back to square one And our journey's just begun Why is it baby that we can`t stop fooling around Why is it baby that we don`t know how to show our feelings Why is it baby that it seems so hard to do Why is it tell me we can`t keep it together Why is it baby I`m so stuck on you I`d do it over and over again `cause I had a good time And I`ll be coming round to see you every single day Are you gonna take it Please dont mistake me Take me back where I belong Why is it baby that we can`t stop fooling around Don`t ever change We love you just the way you are You`re beautiful My little heart breaker My little ball breaker Why is it baby that we never see things clearly Why is it baby that we hurt the ones we love Why is it baby that we`re taking everything so freely Why is it baby that we can`t stop fooling around Why is it baby that we can`t stop fooling around Why is it baby that we can`t stop fooling around

MOON (Jones)

Neil Amstrong landed on the moon Said the world`s not bigger than a spoon Stuck his thumb up to all of mankind And the world that he left behind Tue-o tue-o tue-o Tue-o tue-o tue-o Tue-o tue-o A shooting star and a glimpse of the sun, The belt of Orion come undone Though the food from the tube was a drag, As he planted down the flag Watchin` you from the moon Six thousand miles gonna be home soon Watchin` you from the moon Six thousand miles gonna be home soon Amazing fantastic How far are the moon and stars Amazing fantastic I can`t still see where you are Watchin` you from the moon Six thousand miles gonna be home soon Watchin` you from the moon Six thousand miles gonna be home soon When Gagarin was way up in space, Must`ve known the world`s a little place There are pictures of you in my mind And the world that I left behind Tue-o tue-o tue-o Tue-o tue-o tue-o Tue-o tue-o From the moon we will not seem so bad Except for the weather and the lost `n sad For we'll blot it all out with a smile, `Cause it that`s more from six thousand miles Watchin` you from the moon Six thousand miles gonna be home soon Watchin` you from the moon Six thousand miles gonna be home soon Watchin` you from the moon Six thousand miles gonna be home soon Watchin` you from the moon Six thousand miles gonna be home soon

LUCAN (Jones/Hawkins)

The day is great I`m feeling fine I won`t be late Be there 'fore nine All the splender that you see is mine Done a bunk and left my washing on the line Well I`m not a punk And I`m not a skiver Well Lucan didn`t need it And I don`t need it either Congratulate The sun to shine Anticipate And it`s the same We're all grapes ripe to be picked from the vine I left all my clothes on the beach And an empty bottle of wine Well I`m not a punk And I`m not a shiver Well Lucan didn`t need it And I don`t need it either Slow coach Snail trail Down the lane Traffic jam and again Lost luggage Junk mail Pouring a rain Brought me down again Investigate Scene of the crime On my own estate So I`ll be gone a long time While they're out looking I`m drinkin` tequila and lime Since I took off in search of that long lost sunny 'clime Well I`m not a punk And I`m not a skiver Well Lucan didn`t need it And I don`t need it either Well I`m not a punk And I`m not a skiver Well Lucan didn`t need it And I don`t need it either

HOPE (Jones/Stonadge)

Here comes Tommy and he`s late again Whose that`s leaving with his new girlfriend I`d bet he`s only met her and he doesn`t even know her name My cousin Miney says it`s just for now He`s not taking any marriage vows So why don`t we have a good time any place any how From what I see there`s still a little hope That`s if we don`t hang from too much rope Oh Dear I`d like a boy from the housing estate High on hope and dreaming all this game Know's he`s on his own got to get out `fore it gets too late He`s looking good the best I`ve seen for days He`s tellin` people how he`s changed his way He`s given up drinkin` and he`s down to three smokes a day From what I see there`s still a little hope That`s if we don`t hang from too much rope From what I see there`s still a little hope That`s if we don`t hang from too much rope Hey Tommy how ya feeling up there You`re looking good with the corc-screw hair And in you`re best kaki to your suit Tellin` everybody all `bout the crocodile boots Told `em you can`t loose A social mover always in the right places Got all the contacts knows the latest faces Got the flavour of it now it`s walkin in other taste But every night he gets the urge to go West And now it`s party he`s a V.I.P guest He loves the life he leads and he leads the life he loves best From what I see there`s still a little hope That`s if we don`t hang from too much rope From what I see there`s still a little hope That`s if we don`t hang from too much rope From what I see there`s still a little hope That`s if we don`t hang from too much rope
