THE PEEL SESSIONS The Lyrics


LISTENING IN

I was sitting on my own No one rang so I picked up the phone Then I heard your voice I was listening in You were talking in the hall I wasn`t there but I heard it all Nothing I could do Just listening in On the carpet you`re so small Who had you covered wall to wall Nothing I could do Just listening in Now you`re gone any your line`s dead Nothing I can do instead No more No more No more listening in

FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT

So you think you`re so clever never in doubt But I`ve seen you two together fooling about Don`t get me wrong now I`ve seen what you are Mummy wouldn`t like it it`s gone too far Got to Keep it in the family Like to Keep it in the family Have to Keep it in the family Want to Keep it in the family Playing with the devil it`s your favourite thing Never trying to hide it there`s no shame Something discovered what will you do then Family entertainment will come to an end Got to Keep it in the family Like to Keep it in the family Have to Keep it in the family Want to Keep it in the family Keep it in the family

BILLY`S THIRD

If you say no it would break my heart in two But don`t you realise There`s too many watching you We`re making too many problems Making matters worse Maybe it`s a curse But oh baby it`s hurts But oh baby it`s hurts Don`t look down cos if you do you won`t see what`s in front of you Can`t turn your back on me this time Cos if you do I won`t mind We`re making too many problems Making matters worse Maybe it`s a curse But oh baby it`s hurts But oh baby it`s hurts If you say no If you say no We`re making too many problems Making matters worse Maybe it`s a curse But oh baby it`s hurts But oh baby it`s hurts

HERE COMES THE SUMMER

Oh baby baby what can I do You know you drive me crazy when I`m looking at you The summer`s really here and it`s time to come out Time to discover what fun is about Here comes the summer Here comes the summer Here comes the summer Keep looking for the girls with their faces all tanned Lying on the beaches all covered in sand Stretching out their long legs lying in the sun They know they`re beautiful they`re having fun Here comes the summer Here comes the summer Here comes the summer

GIRLS THAT DON`T TALK

Caroline`s dancing Catina`s at home You get up every morning Taking lessons on the phone Girls that don`t talk Girls that don`t talk Girls that don`t talk Girls that don`t talk Sandra`s at school It`s another late night She comes home quiet Cos her mummy`s up tight Girls that don`t talk Girls that don`t talk Girls that don`t talk Girls that don`t talk Girls that don`t talk Still can`t see When they come home from work And waste their toungues on me

TEARPROOF

She`s a girl in a million And does what a million girls do Every so slightly Finger tipped tightly to Tearproof Tearproof First in the phone book Who looks such nice girl now Magazine madness Guaranteed to show you how Tearproof Tearproof What ever you fancy A borderline case took down An American hostess Don`t take a chance to be around Tearproof Tearproof

WHAT`S WITH TERRY

We begin the sad tale when Terry was young When Enid Blyton proved lots of fun But his vision didn`t dim his adventurous nights He read the Secret Seven under artificial lights Oh dear what`s with Terry Oh dear it`s not right The local girls are not so pretty But they all look the same through Terry`s sight Then came the day Terry always did dread Christmas had come a present lay on his bed A Johnny 7 or a cuddly toy No harm them glasses fit for a boy Oh dear what`s with Terry Oh dear it`s not right The local girls are not so pretty But they all look the same through Terry`s sight Wearing glasses never became the craze So the years they passed in a hazy daze Even at matches he`d shout and roar Pretending he`d seen another George Best goal Being Joe 90 has proved a success But he`s no Clark Gable never the less They found the answer to this classic case It wasn`t the glasses it`s his horrible face Oh dear what`s with Terry Oh dear it`s not right The local girls are not so pretty But they all look the same through Terry`s sight

ROCK AND ROLL

Can you still recall In the jukebox hall Where the music played And the world spun round To a brand new sound In those far off days In their blue suede shoes They would scream and shout Sing the blues And let it all hang out Rock And Roll Hey Rock And Roll Rock And Roll Rock Rock and Roll Little Queenie bopped out Of the high school hop Dancing to this beat With the US mail In a pony tail With a look such sweet The times are changing fast And we all know that Sooner or later we`ll be rocking yeah Rock And Roll Hey Rock And Roll Rock And Roll Rock Rock and Roll

UNTOUCHABLE

I can`t deny these foolish hands of mine Have towed me in the dark A collision course that has hit the rocks Has now pierced my heart I`m stricken down by deceptive moves What`s meant is meant to be Who`d try console a losing side When that losing side is me So now I`ll go step out of line The untouchable is a touch too fine A crazy lust that strips me bare A tarnished whim that just will not wear I`ve witnessed sin that made me swallow deep And haunt me till I`m dead A silent voice that only speaks the truth Is gagged and bound instead

THE LOVE PARADE

My heart`s lost since you`ve been gone But you`re not the guilty one I`ll go back and pick another girl again Close my eyes cos I know that they`re all the same At the love parade At the love parade At the love parade At the love parade We were lovers from the start What`s the point of it What`s the point of our love But since then we`ve grown apart What`s the point of it What`s the point of our love Nothing now can make us lovers and we know What`s the point of it What`s the point of our love So the two of us are going to see just what`s on show What`s the point of it What`s the point of it At the love parade At the love parade At the love parade At the love parade It takes it`s time passing by And gives a chance for the loving eye So see a face and let the body try To get them moving side by side We were lovers from the start What`s the point of it What`s the point of our love But since then we`ve grown apart What`s the point of it What`s the point of our love Nothing now can make us lovers and we know What`s the point of it What`s the point of our love So the two of us are going to see just what`s on show What`s the point of it What`s the point of it

LUXURY

If I was having such a good time It wasn`t really that much fun A counterfeit conspiracy That`s suddenly gone wrong So come on Come on You`re a luxury A peculiar luxury It always breaks my heart You can keep your mystery It doesn`t mean a thing to me Painted lips and l`oreal Are broadcast in the dark A necessary cover up That`s finally left it`s mark So come on Come on You`re a luxury A peculiar luxury It always breaks my heart You can keep your mystery It doesn`t mean a thing to me Your sneaky little schemes that show The wolf`s still at your door A vicious little paragon Of what you were before So come on Come on You`re a luxury A peculiar luxury It always breaks my heart You can keep your mystery It doesn`t mean a thing to me

THE SIN OF PRIDE

The sin of pride keeps me from walking away Don`t walk away To join the lines of gods who think of nothing to say Think what to say The talk of war won`t scare my intentions away Don`t walk away But talk of love and kiss these ribbons today Think what to say The cost of love might make these presents seem small Don`t walk away But with the thoughts inside that wouldn`t matter at all Think what to say And I`ve lost all my friends to be yours But pride`ll still meet me I`m sure And stop me from feeling so hurt Pride`ll still meet Wanting my love Come closer love To want me Come closer love Keeping that love Come closer love Just for me Come closer love I`ve lost all my friends to be yours But pride`ll still meet me I`m sure And stop me from feeling so hurt The sin of pride keeps me from walking away Don`t walk away But keeps inside the things I wanted to say Think what to say A look of love leads me from hate to despair Don`t walk away I look at love it says I shouldn`t be there Think what to say So she goes again
