MATTHEW & SON

Up at eight, you can't be late for
Matthew & Son, he won't wait.
Watch them run down to platform one.
And the eight-thirty train to
Matthew & Son.
 
Matthew & Son,
the work's never done,
there's always something new
The files in your head,
you take them to bed,
you're never ever through
And they've been working
all day, all day, all day
 
There's a five minute break
and that's all you take,
for a cup of cold coffee
and a piece of cake
 
Matthew & Son,
the work's never done,
there's always something new
The files in your head,
you take them to bed,
you're never ever through
And they've been working
all day, all day, all day
 
He's got people who've been working
for fifty years
No one asks for more money
cuz nobody cares
Even though they're pretty low
and their rent's in arrears
Matthew & Son, Matthew & Son,
Matthew & Son, Matthew & Son,
And they've been working
all day, all day, all day!

I LOVE MY DOG

I love my dog as much as I love you
But you may fade,
my dog will always come through
 
All he asks from me
is the food to give him strength
All he ever needs
is love and that he knows he'll get
 
So, I love my dog as much as I love you.
But you may fade,
my dog will always come through
 
All the pay I need
comes shining through his eyes
I don't need no cold water
to make me realize,
 
that I love my dog as much as I love you
But you may fade,
my dog will always come through
 
Na, na, na, na, na, na, nana....
Na, na, na, na, na, na, nana....
ahahahahahaha....  
I love my dog as much as I love you
But you may fade,
my dog will always come through
 
Na, na, na, na, na, na, nana...
Na, na, na, na, na, na, nana...
ahahahahahaha....  
I love my dog, Baby, I love my dog
Na, na, na, na, na, na, nana...
I said I love my dog,
Baby, I love my dog
Baby, I love my dog
Na, na, na, na, na, na, nana...

HERE COMES MY BABY

In the midnight moonlight I'll,
be walking a long and lonely mile
And every time I do,
I keep seeing this picture of you.
 
Here comes my baby, here she comes now
And it comes as no surprise to me,
with another guy.
Here comes my baby, here she comes now
Walking with a love,
with a love that's talks so fine.
Never could be mine, no matter how I try.
 
You never walk alone,
and you're forever talking on the phone
I've tried to call you name
but every time it comes out the same.
 
Here comes my baby, here she comes now,
And it comes as no surprise to me,
with another guy.
Here comes my baby, here she comes now,
Walking with a love,
with a love that's talks so fine
Never could be mine, no matter how I try.
 
I'm still waiting for your heart,
cuz I'm sure that some day it's gonna start
You'll be mine to hold each day,
but 'til then this is all that I can say.
 
Here comes my baby, here she comes now,
And it comes as no surprise to me,
with another guy.
Here comes my baby, here she comes now,
Walking with a love,
with a love that's talks so fine,
Never could be mine, no matter how I try.

And it comes as no surprise to me,
with another guy.

BRING ANOTHER BOTTLE BABY

Better bring another bottle with you baby
If you really want to party
then lets make it swing
Right into the morning
Better bring another bottle with you baby
Cuz I really want to make
this little bell ring
Ding dong, ding.
 
I feel cold
and I want to get you by my side
I feel bold
and I want to show you how this man can ride
 
Better bring another bottle with you baby
If you really want to party
then lets make it swing.
Right into the morning.
Better bring another bottle with you baby.
Cuz I really want to make
this little bell ring.
Ding dong, ding.
 
I feel smooth
and I really want to live it up.
If we groove
then I promise you that we won't even stop.
 
Better bring another bottle with you baby.
 
I get the feeling
that you want to take off and fly.
High, high,
well if my ceiling isn't high enough.
We'll burn up the sky.

PORTOBELLO ROAD

Getting hung up all day on smiles.
Walking down portobello road for miles.
Greeting strangers in indian boots,
yellow ties and old brown suits.
Growing old is my only danger.
Cuckoo clocks, and plastic socks.
Lampshades of old antique leather.
Nothing looks weird, not even a beard,
or the boots made out of feathers.
I'll keep walking miles
til I feel a broom beneath my feet
or the hawking eyes
of an old stuffed bull across the street.
Nothings the same if you see it again.
It'll be broken down to litter
oh, and the clothes everyone knows
that that dress will never fit her.

I´VE FOUND A LOVE

Baby,
I've never had a single thing in my life
I could call my own.
There you were,
holding a love so true.
Now I've got a home,
now I've got a home.
 
I found a love, hidden in a backstreet.
I found a love, baby.
I found a love, hidden in a backstreet.
Hidden away from the world, baby.
 
Baby,
you really make me feel like a king,
a king without a crown.
But darlin'
Promise me one little thing
that you won't let me down.
you won't let me down
 
I found a love, hidden in a backstreet.
I found a love, baby.
I found a love, hidden in a backstreet.
Hidden away from the world, baby.
 
Don't ever tell me lies, baby.
Don't take it for a ride, baby.
Just stay here by my side, baby.
We won't ever stop.
 
I found a love, hidden in a backstreet.
I found a love, baby.
I found a love, hidden in a backstreet.
Hidden away from the world, baby.
I found a love, hidden in a backstreet.
I found a love, baby.

I SEE A ROAD

I see a road and I want to go home,
I want to go home,
my baby will be waitin' there
With a yellow ribbon in her hair
And I know that she won't disappear
cuz she loves me
Too much
 
I see a road and I want to go home,
I want to go home,
my baby will be gettin' old
And I want to make sure she's not cold
Yes, I want to make sure she's not cold
cuz I love her
Too much
 
Where silk music plays
out in the country out of the way
We'll make love,
yeah, under the blue sky above
And we'll be riding on top of the world
 
I see a road and I want to go home,
I want to go home,
my baby will be waitin' there
With a yellow ribbon in her hair
And I know that she won't disappear
cuz she loves me
Too much
 
I see a road and I want to go home
I see a road and I want to go home
I see a road and I want to go home
I see a road

BABY GET YOUR HEAD SCREWED ON

Well if you're feelin' low, take it slow
Baby get your head screwed on
I know he's left, but don't be depressed
Baby let your favorite daddy see you through
 
Oh baby you'll be out of your mind,
Baby you'll be out of your mind,
Baby you'll be out of your mind.
 
You know you're nice, you're sugar and spice
And I know what you're going through
And if you're hot hot, and even if you're not
Baby let your favorite daddy see you through
 
Oh baby you'll be out of your mind,
Baby you'll be out of your mind,
Baby you'll be out of your mind.
 
You were so neat, ever so sweet,
And overnight you've seemed to change
Since you kissed your psychiatrist
Baby, you've never been the same.
 
Well if you're feelin' low, take it slow.
Baby get your head screwed on.
I know he's left, but don't be depressed.
Baby let your favorite daddy see you through.
 
Oh baby you'll be out of your mind,
Baby you'll be out of your mind,
Baby you'll be out of your mind.

GRANNY

You always were so nice
when it came to problems you knew
I never did think twice
about ever coming to you
 
So granny,
what on earth can I do?
Granny , granny,
what on earth can I do?
'Cause this little girl,
this little girl,
She's a driving me wild,
she's a driving me wild,
so wild, so wild, so wild
 
You always straightened me out
when I was feeling rough
But this one I really doubt
cause this one's really tough
 
Oh granny,
what on earth can I do?
Granny, granny,
what on earth can I do?
'Cause this little girl,
this little girl,
She's a driving me wild,
she's a driving me wild,
so wild, so wild, so wild
 
So, granny,
what on earth can I do?

WHEN I SPEAK TO THE FLOWERS

When I speak to the flowers in my backyard
When I speak to the flowers in my backyard
When I speak to the flowers in my backyard
They tell me to leave you,
leave you behind
They tell my to leave you,
just get you out of my mind.
They tell me to leave you,
leave you behind
Oh, forget all the good times,
that are making me blind.
 
I know you run around
and you'll never settle down
And I should quit
while I'm still on top
but when you hold me baby
in your lovin' arms
I could love you forever baby, but
 
When I speak to the flowers in my backyard
When I speak to the flowers in my backyard
When I speak to the flowers in my backyard
They tell me to leave you,
leave you behind
They tell my to leave you,
just get you out of my mind.
They tell me to leave you,
just leave you behind
Oh, forget all the good times,
that are making me blind,
that are making me blind.

THE TRAMP

He sleeps alone in the damp
And rests his head upon a door
the only bed he knows is the floor
The tramp
 
Turned up collar and worn out shoes
He doesn't care
'cause he hasn't got nothing to lose
 
He sleeps alone in the damp
And rests his head upon a door
the only bed he knows is the floor
The tramp
 
No companion to take him home
His only friends are the kind
that just leave him alone
No one knows just
how lonely his life has been
in a world that lives in a dream
 
He sleeps alone in the damp
And rests his head upon a door
the only bed he knows is the floor
The tramp
 
He sleeps alone in the damp
And rests his head upon a door
the only bed he knows is the floor
The tramp, the tramp, the tramp.

COME ON AND DANCE

I take you out all over town.
But you always start sittin' down.
You never move,
baby whats wrong with me?
When we go dancin',
you're just there like a tree.
 
Baby come on and dance,
you're holding me back.
I've gotta get out this feeling,
before I go mad.
You gotta let me in,
the music's getting me now.
You gotta come on and dance,
stop hangin around.
 
I don't care if you twist or jive,
just as long as you're lookin' alive.
You'll make me glad,
baby you'll make me rise,
I wanna see that twinkle in your eyes.
 
Baby come on and dance,
you're holding me back.

HUMMINGBIRD

There's a yellow flower by your bed
Sadly droopin' it's perfumed head
So you won't smell it,
I know what you'll miss
And there's a hummingbird,
a hummingbird,
a hummingbird,
a hummingbird.
Oh there's a hummingbird singing.
 
There is the hat you made,
the clothes you wore.
Lying down on the cold, dirty floor.
The colors are fading,
they'll never shine again.
And there's a hummingbird,
a hummingbird,
a hummingbird,
a hummingbird.
Oh there's a hummingbird singing.
 
Now the road is turning gray,
There's a shadow where you once lay.
They'll find it tomorrow,
and think you went alone.
But there's a hummingbird,
a hummingbird,
a hummingbird,
a hummingbird.
Ah there's a hummingbird crying.

LADY

I was cold and so alone,
so I couldn't help but moan.
When the life that I had known
started crumbling.
 
And this crazy world that I live in,
started giving more to me.
I've never known a lady like yourself.
I've never known a lady.
 
I was searching all the world,
looking for a girl.
Then a lady made an Earl of this poor boy.
 
Now this crazy world that I live in,
started giving more to me.
I've never known a lady like yourself.
I've never known a lady.
 
Now this crazy world that I live in,
started giving more to me.
I've never known a lady like yourself.

SCHOOL IS OUT

School is out now we're gonna have some fun
We're gonna make like we are the only ones
I'm gonna buy a piece of the sky
and sell passing clouds
I'm gonna be a mayor of some small town
and tax the crowds
I'm gonna be a local surveyor
and study the foreman guilds
I'm gonna line up some of the finest
girls that are in the world
 
We're coming out of school today
and we're so happy to be alive.
It's gonna be the best day,
the best day of our lives.
I'm gonna be a history maker
I'll call myself Richard the Third.
I'm gonna buy an amplifier
and shout out "Have you heard?"
 
We're coming out of school today
and we're so happy to be alive.
It's gonna be the best day,
the best day of our lives.
We're coming out of school today baby.

I´M GONNA GET ME A GUN

I've been demoralized
too many times.
But now I realize,
Ah ah, no more.
 
I'm gonna get me a gun.
I'm gonna get me a gun.
And all those people
who put me down.
You better get ready to run,
cuz I'm gonna get me a gun.
 
I know my destiny
is like the sun.
You see the best of me
when I have got my gun.
 
I'm gonna get me a gun.
I'm gonna get me a gun.
And all those people
who put me down.
You better get ready to run,
cuz I'm gonna get me a gun.
 
So you think you can push me around
And make me run
Well I'm gonna tell you now
 
I'm gonna get me a gun
I'm gonna get me a gun
And all those people
who put me down
You better get ready to run,
cuz I'm gonna get me a gun
Gonna get me a gun
