HEY! MR POLICEMAN Hey! Mr Policeman won’t you please leave me alone? I'm just tryna make my way here and my business is my own Yes, I accept you have a job to do and you’re giving it your all But, contrary to popular belief, I'm not a criminal I said, “Hey! Mr Policeman” just for once cut me some slack I can’t walk down the high street without looking at my back And with my reputation tattered & my prospects at their worst Why must you drag my name down in the dirt? LEAVE ME ALONE LEAVE ME ALONE I’VE DONE NOTHING WRONG Well just the other morning I was driving into town I looked up at the mirror saw the blue lights flashing round Half an hour later, my car’s been emptied on the ground A ‘routine check’ with nothing to be found LEAVE ME ALONE JUST LEAVE ME ALONE I’VE DONE NOTHING WRONG

Mary Jane 03:04
MARY JANE Mary Jane, she comes & goes but where she goes no-one knows She says she will, then she won't ... I don't know She left me hanging out to dry. I'm hung up on the line Going out of my mind all the time Reservations at the station let you down While the highway men get street-wise with the clowns And Mary Jane's nowhere to be found All these days pass me by. January, July ... this year's over before it's begun and there's no questioning why, when you're flying so high You forget when it's time to come down Came to my senses, lowered my defences Though I'm still believing you've got me daydreaming .... Mary Jane, love to turn you on Mary Jane!

SERIOUS DRUGS I said: "I don't think I can take it much longer" She said: "Maybe your tablets should be stronger" Get some serious drugs Toy town medicine don't make a change If you want your head rearranged Get some serious drugs The trouble with me I can't give in you see The trouble with me I can't give in you see I'd cut off my hair if you want me to I'd cut off a finger if it'd get me Your serious love I've got serious love I said: "I don't think I can much longer" She said: "Maybe your tablets should be stronger" Get some serious drugs The trouble with me I can't give in you see The trouble with me I can't give in you see

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY Be careful what you say, ‘cause every exchange It all gets filed away, and it can all come back to you. They’ve cameras in the trees, and microphonic bees Recording every sneeze and it can all come back to you Yeah, it can all come back to you, said it can all come back to you And it will all come back to you Young William McTell, keeps nothing to himself His every waking thought, he types up in his big blue book And poor Rhianna Finch, can hardly budge an inch So busy on her phone, she has to stay at home alone She needs to stay at home alone, she lives her life at home alone And Tweets her friends at home alone Remember a time we kept things to ourselves? You’d know your secret stayed with someone else And diaries were padlocked hidden on the shelf Personal data had a time and place but now if you want to keep a secret safe, you have to hide it from yourself BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY, JUST BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY, ‘CAUSE IT CAN ALL COME BACK TO YOU, YEAH IT CAN ALL COME BACK TO YOU, SAID IT CAN ALL COME BACK TO YOU AND IT WILL ALL COME BACK TO YOU!

TURN AROUND OR I’m lookin’ for some action, need some satisfaction Each and every day I feel I’m going under, best laid plans asunder Searching for a way I’m spinning on an axis, I’m taking things for granted You’ve got me where you want me Why do you ignore me? Turn around or walk away Turn around or, turn around or walk away I’m feelin’ kinda homesick, strike another matchstick Light the fire and watch the flame He’s staring down a shotgun, better watch your back, son Only you to blame 'Cause we’re spinning on an axis All caught up in this rat race And you’re looking so much younger, feeling so much older, turn around or walk away I’m lookin’ for some action

YOUR LOVE IS MY BLANKET These black clouds they get me down It always seems to rain each time I leave the house Sometimes it feels like there's nowhere to hide Just can't get warm on the inside But I know when I feel like this There's a place that I can't resist And I'll always come back to you ... Your love is my blanket (it keeps me warm!)

WILD APPLE GIRL Can I hold your hand and count to ten? Let's play hide & seek again Watch a leaf fall from your tree You don't know what you mean to me Wild Apple Girl x

YOU SAY YOU'RE LEAVING You say you’re leaving, you’ve got your reasons and now you’re moving on You’ve had your doubts but, just hear me out ‘cause, for what it’s worth here you’ve got me all wrong! You say you’ve made your mind up and that you want to break up ‘cause of what’s been going on ever heard of ‘innocent ‘til proven’? You’ve got my assets frozen, do you really think I’d be carrying on? Yes, Sally may be young and free, and Bernadette won’t leave me be But how can I make you see that it’s only you that holds the key to my heart? Tell me I’m dreaming, I thought that we were, in this for the long haul. Can’t we, can’t we talk it over, completely sober? I don’t really know what we’re fighting for So you’ve made your mind up and now you wanna break up? Well just let me make this clear. It’s a storm in a teacup, unfounded secrets Just don’t believe everything that you hear Yeah, Sally may be young and free, and Bernadette won’t leave me be But how can I make you see that you’re the only one for me? Yeah, Sally may be young and free (“She may be young and free!”) And Bernadette won’t leave me be (“Leave me be, leave me be!”) But how can I make you see, that it’s only you that holds the key to my heart?

NEVER HAD A LOVE Never had a love where it’s worked out right The wheels stay on, the bond is tight So many times, for different reasons, I’ve been thinking about joining The Foreign Legion No, I’ve never had a love like flying a kite On a summer’s day in the warm sunlight Never found a woman who could hold me tight Sweet temptation keeps me up all night No I’ve never had a love You know I’ve never had a love Never had a love ... no Never had a love I could call my own Like Adrienne was for Rocky Balboa So many times, on different occasions, I’ve been leaving that picture house practically weeping No I’ve never had a love who can call my bluff My hand in glove, a snow-white dove Never found a woman I could truly love ... no Lookin’ for a woman who can sing like Lily Allen Eyes like Twiggy with a smile like Karen’s You can take the Michael but I’m really quite specific My ideal woman well she really is terrific You can keep your Kylies and your Mileys and your Britneys Give me Audrey and a slap-up at Tiffanys I admit that might be a bit tricky Sometimes I wish I just wasn’t so picky No, I’ve never had a love You know I’ve never had a love Never had a love .... like THIS before!

IN THE MORNING In the morning, won’t you come & come and see me? In the morning, won’t you come & come and free me? 'Cause I love you and I want you and I need you Yeah, I love you and I want you and I need you In the morning, won’t you come & come and please me? In the morning, won’t you come & come and tease me? 'Cause I love you and I want you and I need you Yeah, I love you and I want you and I need you Yes I love you and I want you and I need you Guess I love you and I want you and I need you I’d do anything for you You know I would if you ask me to 'Cause all I think about is you And you know it’s true You know that it’s true In the morning, won’t you come and, come and see me?

Callin' Out! 03:47
CALLIN’ OUT! Sailed the seven seas Read a million books Crossed some muddy waters Just to take a look Stood on the banks of the Mersey Callin’ out your name But the tide rolled over You never came If I’d known now what I thought I knew then Seems the grass was greener in your garden Well I loved you then & I still love you now Like a candle that you can’t blow out You can knock me down But I’ll get up again For such a one-horse town You’ve got a lot of friends Well you fly like a butterfly You sting like a bee But you’re all I’ve got You’re all I need If I’d known now what I thought I knew then Seems the grass was greener in your garden Well I loved you then & I still love you now Like a candle that you can’t blow out!
