NEWSPAPER ROUNDS Song lyric 117

Up at dawn the next day rise,
Down the street the newsboy flies.
At the doors postmen knock.
Every one races against the clock.

Newspaper delivery rounds,
Earning pence to turn into pounds.

In the bins old ones lay,
Chronicles of yesterday,
Discarded, now, they’re out of date.
Some were wasted, delivered late.

Newspaper delivery rounds,
Earning pence to turn into pounds.

NO FLIES ON ME Song lyric 035

At long last we’ve finished arguing with each other.
This week we must forget your father and mother.
Now we know they don’t want both of us around,
I don’t resent this independence that we’ve found.

Listen to me now, I know that you’ll agree.
You’re smart, you’re cute and there ain’t no flies on me.

Yes her heart was like an apple, rotten to the core,
Replaced by a real peach, I won’t see her any more.
I had tolerated her for far too long.
I won’t forget such behaviour, it’s so wrong.

I’ll make a clean breast of the brief history
And hope you’ll understand that it’s no mystery.
She had a wicked mind, no good to anyone.
Without her around our new love has begun

NOSEDIVE Song lyric 164

You took a nosedive X3

You mash me up with your big, bad mouth,
Until I’ve got nowhere else to turn.
You criticise the whole of the south,
Showing how much you still have to learn.
Smelling salts can’t prevent a fall.
Out of control you plunged to the ground
Now, see who it is looking so small.
We’ve weighed you up pound for pound.

Since nothing is sacred under the sky,
According to you and your crowd,
Ruling the roost and trying to fly,
Crashing now, you’re not so proud.
High-flyers, when the whole world is a stage,
Amateur dramatics are just all talk,
The plot thickens page by page.
Dust yourself down . Get up and walk.

Opponents and rivals just beware,
Causing trouble can dash your own plans.
Walk away, don’t stand and stare.
You’re heading for disaster, take one last glance.

NOT GUILTY Song lyric 101

Rumours fly around the district,
Accusing you of being loose.
I try to avoid mentioning the subject
To prevent you from getting more abuse.

If you’re not allowed to mingle,
Forbidden to associate though still single,
There’s no chance of starting love’s long haul
But you’re not guilty, you’re not guilty,
You’re not guilty of anything at all.

Whispers made us feel uneasy,
Tormenting us about getting involved.
We’ll soldier on regardless, see,
Until the situation is resolved.

If we’re supposed to keep formal,
Remember the situations not quite normal,
There’s no chance of starting love’s long haul
But your not guilty, you’re not guilty,
You’re not guilty of anything at all.

NOTHING TO MEMORISE Song lyric 043

We were going steady when she came along.
I just wasn’t ready for life to go so wrong.
It started arguments then I began to realise
That it was my details that she failed to memorise.

She mentioned other names,I’m wondering why
She forgot to call me. She didn’t even try.
Tending to ignore me, so we couldn’t compromise’
Yet all that happened left us nothing to memorise.
