Madness

Baggy Trousers

Naughty boys in nasty schools
Headmasters breaking all the rules
Having fun and playing fools
Smashing up the woodwork tools
All the teachers in the pub
Passing ’round the ready-rub
Trying not to think of when
The lunch-time bell will ring again.
Oh what fun we had
But, did it really turn out bad
All I learnt at school
Was how to bend not break the rules
Oh what fun we had
But at the time it seemed so bad
Trying different ways
To make a difference to…
The headmaster’s had enough to-day
All the kids have gone away
Gone to fight with next-door’s school
Every term, that is the rule
Sits alone and bends his cane
Same old backsides again
All the small ones tell tall tales
Walking home and squashing snails.
Oh what fun we had
But, did it really turn out bad
All I learnt at school
Was how to bend not break the rules
Oh what fun we had
But at the time it seemed so bad
Trying different ways
To make a difference to the days.
Lots of girls and lots of boys
Lots of smells and lots of noise
Playing football in the park
Kicking Pushbikes after dark
Baggy trousers, dirty shirt
Pulling hair and eating dirt
Teacher comes to break it up
Back of the ‘ead with a plastic cup.
Oh what fun we had
But, did it really turn out bad
All I learnt at school
Was how to bend not break the rules
Oh what fun we had
But at the time it seemed so bad
Trying different ways
To make a difference to the days.
Baggy trousers, baggy trousers, baggy trousers
Baggy trousers, baggy trousers, baggy trousers

Embarrassment

Received a letter just the other day,
Don’t seem they wanna know you no more,
They’ve laid it down given you their score,
Within the first two lines it bluntly read.You’re not to come and see us no more,
Keep away from our door,
Don’t come ’round here no more
What on earth did you do that for?Our aunt, she don’t wanna know she says,
What will the neighbours think they’ll think,
We don’t that’s what they’ll think, we don’t,
But I will, ’cause I know they think I don’t.Our uncle he don’t wanna know he says,
We are a disgrace to the human race he says,
How can you show your face,
When you’re a disgrace to the human race?No committment, you’re an embarrassment,
Yes, an embarrassment, a living endorsement,
The intention that you have booked,
Was an intention that was overlooked.They say, stay away,
Don’t want you home today,
Keep away from our door,
Don’t come ’round here no more.Our dad, he don’t wanna know he says,
This is a serious matter,
Too late to reconsider,
No one’s gonna wanna know ya!Our mum, she don’t wanna know,
I’m feelin’ twice as old, she says,
Thought she had a head on her shoulder,
‘Cause I’m feelin’ twice as older,
I’m feelin’ twice as older.You’re an embarrassment…

E.R.N.I.E.

I am the bringer of your wishes
Your savior from doing work
The washer of your dishes
And you’ll still get your midday perk
Estate agent your mansion
And pot of gold
All the home comforts
Before you’re getting tired and old
One more try
Try to get what you’ve never had
Five more bob
For the whole world that can’t be bad
We can’t all win
Look it’s happening
The future’s looking not so bleak
A thousand winners every week [x2]
So when you hear me coming
Along halls and up the stairs (E.R.N.I.E.)
In the back of teapots
In the cupboard, under chairs (E.R.N.I.E.)
Forget all your wives tales
Of forecasts and dividends (E.R.N.I.E.)
When E.R.N.I.E. feels vibrations
Only pays out to trusted friends
One more try
Try to get what you’ve never had
Five more bob
For the whole world that can’t be bad
We can’t all win
Look it’s happening
The future’s looking not so bleak
A thousand winners every week [x2]
Congratulations you’ve just won
A five thousand pound premium bond
Keep your hand on the bottle
And your eyes glued upon the set (E.R.N.I.E.)
When the score cards come up
Could be you for the big one next (E.R.N.I.E.)
Publicity, no thank you
On the front page of the Currant Bun (E.R.N.I.E.)
They think you stink
But in the pub you’ll be number one
One more try
Try to get what you’ve never had
Five more bob
For the whole world that can’t be bad
We can’t all win
Look it’s happening
The future’s looking not so bleak
A thousand winners every week [x4]

Close Escape

That was a close escape, have to get a new hobby to relate.
Something less conspicuous, won`t take up too much time,
Something less energetic, for what I`ve got in mind.
I won`t be too persistent `cos I`m not that way inclined.
See, that`s the one for me. Look under “Collins” see if she`s free.
Sweaty fingers find 5p 4151683
“Hello Miss Collins you`ll not know me. I`m in the undies
Business, see? Please please can you tell me the size; how
Far from the knee?”
Oh dear dear, me luck is running thin.
I`ll take another name I might have a win.
What? 2 more points? I hope no one fills it in.
See, that`s the one for me. Look under “Dickens” CFG.
See if she`ll speak to me. Hand`s get shakey eye`s can`t see.
Having trouble find 5p 2171983
“Hello Miss Dickens you`ll not know me, I`m in the undies
Business, see?”
Feel more relaxed now here we go again.
Hoi! No temporaries I`ve heard most take me in.
Oh dear dear me, that is the one it fits.
So please please can you tell me the textured fit feels good to me.
In the naked mood, try to grin and bear with me.
Please don`t think me rude, I only hear don`t want to see.
See, that`s the one for me. That was quick, too quick for me.
Of that I can see, wash me laundry oh bugger me!
Sugar or milk with your tea? No I couldn`t, well I`ll see.
What`s your hobby? Just the same as me, see you soon for tea.
I`ll give it one last chance I think you`ll all agree.
I`m getting nowhere here, on my last 5p.
I`m sick of waiting for ages nothing interests me.
I`ll ring another number, make sure it`s a she.
Here we go again, I`ll give it 3rd degree.
No hard feelings oh yes I`m sure you`ll all agree.
I`ll take another name I might have a win.

Not Home Today

She says he’s gone away on a short holiday
He won`t be back for awhile
The twleve from the bench stood up
And hesitated he`ll be leaving
Right after this trial
Circumstance, evidence who can cheat providence
He wished he could go back again
A flick of the wrist
He wished that he missed
Not guilty is all he can say
Pass `round the gossip now
Let`s wait and see
Pass `round the tray now
Let`s have some tea
My boys haven`t seen him
He`s been working away
Don`t bother asking
He`s not home today
Not home today
T-shirts and badges
With free tickles and smudges
In the end you`ll believe what you feel
When ten hands are aiming
And no-one is complaining
In a sense it could be more real

Take It or Leave It

How come he enjoys himself not me? (I don’t know)
How come she smiles a good morning to me?
How do they make a hard day’s work easy?
Tell me something I’ll put it to the test
Take hold of yourself and you will see
How lucky we are to be free
Now you take for granted
Life and country
How come he jokes with friends but not me?
How can she sing out of tune not me?
How do they find time for kids on Sunday?
I can’t express uncalled for agress
You’re in one-way traffic can’t you see?
Before a head-on crash steer free
When if it’s too late
Don’t come cry to me
How come they get on with but not me?
How can they walk arm-in-arm happily?
How does that old boy dance down the street?
Tell me something I’ll put it to the test
Take hold of yourself and you will see
How lucky we are to be free
Now you take for granted
Life and country
How come we never get on you and me?
How can we find out the remedy?
How does that old lady’s home look neat? [Repeat x7]

Shadow Of Fear

I walk through Camden town in the evening
Strolling silently and hardly breathing
Footsteps behind me slightly quicker
The corner of my eye a shadowy flicker
I wonder if he’s after my soul again tonight
Stops to whisper with the shadows but still keeps me in his sight
I shout at passing strangers but they don’t seem aware
Don’t want to get involved in my spiritual affair
Tonight my fears are growing worse and worse
I feel him brewing up an evil curse
I sense a chill creep up my spine
I want to scream but only whine
Because I know it can’t be true
Mind’s gone now legs it’s up to you
I wonder if he’s after my soul again tonight
Stops to whisper in the shadows but still keeps me in his sight
I shout at passing strangers but they don’t seem aware
Don’t want to get involved in my spiritual affair
I try to accept him as my partner
He still makes cold his manic laughter
But every time I try to turn around he throws my fears
And makes no sound he stirs them to the ground
Aching muscles, puff and pant I run
To stagger home and hide behind my mum
But even when I’m safely in my bed
I know that he is waiting in my head
I wonder if he’s after my soul again tonight
Stops to whisper in the shadows but still keeps me in his sight
I shout at passing strangers but they don’t seem aware
Don’t want to get involved in my spiritual affair

Disappear

Walls signed with autographs
Ceilings full of echoed laughs
Something’s disappear
Gurus on roller skates
Capital for swinging fetes
The area is to be cleared
A stab in the back, the smoke and the black
As it smolders to its grave
Disappear with the fun and the fear
Another chance to misbehave
Organ tinkling organ
Marriage planning children
Spinning, round and round
Rusty swings and roundabouts
Disco’s full of layabouts
Nowhere to be found
A stab in the back, the smoke and the black
As it smolders to its grave
Disappear with the fun and the fear
Another chance to misbehave
Come on then we’ll go down there
Let’s see the local ash tray
Let’s see if we can be happy
We’ll mess about just you and me
I must try to make it home before tea
Walls signed with autographs
Ceilings full of echoed laughs
Something’s disappear
Gurus on roller skates
Capital for swinging fetes
The area is to be cleared
A stab in the back, the smoke and the black
As it smolders to it’s grave
Disappear with the fun and the fear
Another chance to misbehave
[x2]

Overdone

There is such confusion in my mind,
To play your illusion is so unkind,
I didn’t know who you were this afternoon,
You said that it didn’t matter and I’ll see you soon.
Standing here in the rain,
Maybe the weather will change again,
Change again or stay the bleeding same.
How I met you in the first place I’ll never know,
But now I think I know you you’re telling me to go, ho, ho,
You said you’d be back you told me to wait here just in case,
But then you never arrive and I’m waiting outside your place.
Standing here in the rain,
Maybe the weather will change again,
Change again or stay the bleeding same.
Standing here in the rain,

Change again or stay the bleeding same.

In the Rain

One two three four
There is such confusion in my mind
To play your illusion is so unkind
I didn’t know who you were this afternoon
You said that it didn’t matter and I’ll see you soon
Standing here in the rain
Maybe the weather will change again
Change again or stay the bleedin’ same

But now I think that I know you you’re telling me to go
You said you’d be back told me to wait here just in case

Shame

You Said

You said you’re leaving, well that’s okay
You said you’ve had enough, what can I say
I suppose I’ll be sad for a week or two
But in the end it’s the same for me and you
We’ll both be sorry through and through
You said you’re leaving, well that’s okay
You said you’ve had enough, what can I say
I suppose I’ll be sad for a week or two
But in the end it’s the same for me and you
We’ll both be sorry through and through
Me and you
You must stop doing this, you’ve got to change
‘Cause you hold all the cards, you’ve got the range
Every time you go away I get to think
You said you’re leaving
You said this
You said
You said that
You said you don’t want to see me no more
You said you don’t want me to come to your door
You said
You said
I suppose I’ll be sad for a week or two
But in the end it’s the same for me and you
We’ll both be sorry through and through
Yes we do
You must stop doing this, you’ve got to change
‘Cause you hold all the cards, you’ve got the range
Every time you go away I get to think

Crying Shame

I cried all night just thinking of you
I wonder now what I’m going to do
Since you left me for that friend of mine
Every second is just crying time
I cry cos my heart is in pain
I cry though I know its in vain
But knowing this I cry all the same
I wake at night Crying out your name

You said that you’d never leave
I never listened that you were a tease
People talk about me behind my back
They don’t understand its the passion they lack

People go around and whisper my name
They think its a laugh because I never complain
But to my face they are always the same
They don’t understand its a crying shame

You always said that you needed me,
Exactly what for I find it hard to see

I’ve sat up all night wishing you were still mine
Now I understand there’s better things to do with my Time

I cry cos my heart is in pain
I cry though I know its in vain
But knowing this I cry all the same
I wake at night Crying out your name

I cry each night with tears in my eyes
I cant believe you are telling me lies
People go around whispering my name
Don’t they know its a crying Shame

I cry cos my heart is in pain
I cry though I know its in vain
But knowing this I cry all the same
I wake at night Crying out your name

One Step Beyond

(Hey you, don’t watch that,
Watch this!
This is the heavy heavy monster sound
The nutsiest sound around
So if you’ve come in off the street
And you’re beginning to feel the heat
Well listen buster
You’d better to start to move your feet
To the rockin’est, rock-steady beat
Of Madness
One step beyond!)(One step beyond!…)

My Girl

My girl’s mad at me
I didn’t wanna see the film tonight
I found it hard to say
She thought I’d had enough of her
Why can’t she see
She’s lovely to me?
But I like to stay in
And watch t.v. on my own
Every now and thenMy girl’s mad at me
Been on the telephone for an hour
We hardly said a word
I tried and tried but I could not be heard
Why can’t I explain?
Why do I feel this pain?
‘Cause everything I say
She doesn’t understand
She doesn’t realise
She takes it all the wrong wayMy girl’s mad at me
We argued just the other night
I thought we’d got it straight
We talked and talked until it was light
I thought we’d agreed
I thought we’d talked it out
Now when I try to speak
She says that I don’t care
She says I’m unaware
And now she says I’m weak

Night Boat To Cairo”

It’s just gone noon
Half past monsoon
On the banks of the river Nile
Here comes the boat
Only half-afloat
Oarsman grins a toothless smile
Only just one more
To this desolate shore
Last boat along the river Nile
Doesn’t seem to care
No more wind in his hair
As he reaches his last half mile
The oar snaps in his hand
Before he reaches dry land
But the sound doesn’t deafen his smile
Just pokes at wet sand
With an oar in his hand
Floats off down the river Nile
Floats off down the river Nile(All aboard, night boat to Cairo!)(Night boat to Cairo!)

Believe Me

Everything that I tell you, girl, every word that you hear
Every little whisper, let me make myself clear
There ain’t no lies to deceive you, I love you too much for that
Every word that I say is true, you can believe me on that
My friends tell me jealous lies
Now I’m getting my goodbyes
Life without you, my dear
Was dull, as dull as can be
I’m asking my love, not to leave me in doubt
Not to leave me in misery
Saxophone
If you take in all they say
I guess I’ll be on my way
Please, my darling, it’s not true
I don’t know this girl called Sue
Sue’s a name I have not heard (no-no-no-no)
I lost my girl from that one word (no-no-no-no)
Will she come back, I just don’t know
And I’m takin’ a heavy blow, oh
I’ve got myself together (no-no-no-no)
I can’t go on in this cold weather (no-no-no-no)
Christmas comes but once a year
It’s a time of love and cheer
Your friends tell you jealous lies
Now I’m getting my goodbyes

Land of Hope and Glory

Land of hope and glory, mother of the free
How shall we extol thee, who are born of thee?
Wider still and wider shall thy bounds be set
God, who made thee mighty, make thee mightier yet
God, who made thee mighty, make thee mightier yet
Land of hope and glory, mother of the free
How shall we extol thee, who are born of thee?
Wider still and wider shall thy bounds be set
God, who made thee mighty, make thee mightier yet
God, who made thee mighty, make thee mightier yet

The Prince

Buster, he sold the heat
With a rock-steady beatAn earthquake is erupting
But not in Orange street
A ghost-dance is preparing
You got to help us with your feet
If you’re not in the mood to dance
Step back, grab yourself a seat
This may not be uptown Jamaica
But we promise you a treat
Buster bowl me over with your bogus dance
Shuffle me off my feet
Even though I’ll keep on runnin’
I’ll never get to Orange streetSo I’ll say there’s nothin’ left to say
For the man who set the beat
So I’ll leave it up to you out there
To get him back on his feetBuster bowl me over with your bogus dance
Shuffle me off my feet
Even though I’ll keep on runnin’
I’ll never get to Orange streetBring back the
Who is the
We want the
Bring back the Prince…aahh!

Tarzan’s Nuts

Hey you seen Jane?
No man
OK I’ll catch a train
A train you’ll wait a long time
No way I’ll catch a vine
What that’s a route?
No man it’s a fruit
Give me a bite
No I’ll save it for tonight

In the Middle of the Night

Nice man george, newsagent on the corner
Not very rich, but never any poorer
Jaunty old george, a happy sixty-three
Not very tall, but healthier than me
He whistles timeless tunes as he saunters down the street
Springs in his legs and elastic in his feet
But in the middle of the night
He steals through your garden
Gives your hosiery a fright
And doesn’t say pardon
As soft as a breeze
With an arm full of underwear
On his hands and knees
Dreams about the knicker scare
Hello there george, newsagent on the corner
How’s the old car, yes the climate’s getting warmer
Chatty old george as you get your morning paper
Read about the knicker thief, underwear taker
Bids you ‘good day’, as you wander out the door
Never closes early, always cleans the floor
But when darkness hits the town
And there’s washing on your line
Get your knickers down
Before the dreaded sign
When the clock strikes eight
And you’re snuggled up in bed
He’ll be at the garden gate
Filling underwear with dread
Nice man george, newsagent on the corner
He was closed today, maybe gone to mow the lawn
I had to go further down the road to get me current bun
Hello, isn’t that george on page one?
No, it couldn’t be, but yes, it is
Difficult to see from these photofits
But they are after him
Of that you can be sure
They’ve called him on the phone
They’ve knocked on his door
But he’s gone away
Gone to stay with some mates
He got the papers early
And saw his own face

Bed and Breakfast Man

Well there’s a man I know
At least I used to years ago
I didn’t really mind
He used to come round all the time
Of course he had to be fed
I had to give him a bed
He used to kip on my sofa
They used to call him a loafer
I’ve heard he’s changed a lot since then
But some of his ways he just can’t mend.
Till the other day
When he’d offer to pay
He didn’t like his bed
He earned all he’d ever had
He didn’t have no shame
He was a master at his game
He never showed his head
He was the bed and breakfast man
Oh he was he was the bed and breakfast man

Razor Blade Alley

Oooh I didn’t talk too much in fact not at lot
Oh but to ask her the price I was to be no fool
Money’s no time to waste or to shoot up the wall
You got the know how the place teacher take me to your schoolShe lead the way from the alley back to her house
Must not be seen going in must not be seen coming out
She said I looked mighty but thin she told me
“I’m gonna give you a second helping”Ooh Razor Blade Alley I’ve been there
Razor Blade Alley neither of us cared
It was the prime time but the wrong place
It was my first time I hope my last tasteI’m just too shy to check in but this pain of pissing razors is cutting inMmm felt like a knight without shining armour on
At the time she thought she was in a dream
Floating up on cloud nine now I awake
She is nowhere but the razor cuts deeper everywhere

Swan Lake

(Instrumental)

Rockin’ In A Flat”

I used to work nights with my dad
It was the best job I ever had
Until them blokes on their bikes came through
Said “Come on down to youth, brother, see what’s new”
Well come on, come on, come on, let’s have some fun tonightWent to the dance like they said I should
It cost me a bob, but it was quite good
The band were jumpin’ and a-jivin’ around
Their 20 Watt amps really made a sound
Well come on, come on, come on, let’s have some fun tonightWell, I’ll have a cup of tea and then I’ll change me name
And I’ll put my records o-ah-o-ah-on
Till all the geezers in the flat complain
“Wish that rockstar bloke was gone” is the moan
Let’s have some fun tonightSold all my records and I bought a bike
I found some blokes who would do what I like
I saw the rigger who ran the hall
He said we can rehearse there any time at all
Well come on, come on, come on, let’s have some fun tonightWe’re really rocking now, I’ve got a bird
She says we are the best band she’s ever heard
I’ve got a bike and I’m having a time
But my mum keeps saying “Rock ‘n’ roll’s a crime!”
Well come on, come on, come on, let’s have some fun tonight
(All right, all night!)
Well come on, come on, come on, let’s have some fun tonight

Mummy’s Boy

in the pub, about seven-thirty
Mother makes sure that his face ain’t dirty
Him and mother go everywhere
Holds her hand without a care
Lived with mother for forty years
The neighborhood said that he must be queer
Normal folk a-just don’t like that
Glad he can’t hear behind his back
When mother dies, he will have a cry ’cause he’ll be on his own
He’s frightened stiff, would he come to this?
Will he lose her to the heavenly home?
In the pub, about seven thirty

Once went out with a London girl
Dirty weekend in a hotel
Broke it off when she got shirty
She was twelve and he was thirty
Right after that he was bedsore
