  1. I Know Very Well How I Got My Name

    I Know Very Well How I Got My Name

    A child in a curious phase
    A man with sullen ways
    Oh, I know very well how I got my name

    You think you were my first love
    You think you were my first love, but you’re wrong
    You were the only one
    Who’s come and gone

    When thirteen years old
    Who dyed his hair gold?
    Oh, I know very well, I don’t need to be told

    You think you were my first love
    You think you were my first love, but you’re wrong
    You were the only one
    Who’s come and gone

    You were the only one
    Who’s come and gone

  2. Pregnant For the Last Time

    Pregnant For the Last Time

    Phlegm lapels for the last time
    Corn beef legs for the last time
    Oh, we’re so glad
    That you’ve finally decided

    But then you see someone new
    And you want someone new
    So you have someone new
    I don’t blame you
    We would all do the same as you
    If ever we had the nerve to

    Chips with cream for the last time
    The People’s Friend for the last time
    Oh, we’re so glad
    That you’ve finally decided

    Tiny striped socks for the last time
    Pokes and prods for the last time
    And the doctor said
    “Don’t nod your head until June !”

    But then you see someone new
    And you want someone new
    So you have someone new
    I don’t blame you
    We would all do the same as you
    If ever we had the chance to

    Sick at noon for the last time
    And who is going to clean up ?
    Would you be so kind ?
    Oh, everybody’s staring
    At the strange clothes that you’re wearing

    Bad advice for the last time
    And people being nice for the very first time
    Oh, we’re so glad

  3. Jack the Ripper

    Jack the Ripper

    Oh, you look so tired
    Mouth slack and wide
    Ill-housed and ill-advised
    Your face is as mean
    As your life has been

    Crash into my arms
    I WANT YOU
    You don’t agree –
    But you don’t refuse
    I know you

    And I know a place
    Where no one is likely to pass
    Oh, you don’t care if it’s late
    And you don’t care if you’re lost
    And oh, you look so tired
    (But tonight you presume too much)
    Too much, too much
    And if it’s the last
    Thing I ever do
    I’M GONNA GET YOU

    Crash into my arms
    I WANT YOU
    You don’t agree –
    But you don’t refuse
    I know you

    Crash into my arms
    I WANT YOU
    You don’t agree –
    But you don’t refuse
    I know you
    Oh …

  4. I’ve Changed My Plea to Guilty

    I’ve Changed My Plea to Guilty

    I’m standing in the dock
    With my innocent hand on my heart
    I’ve changed my plea
    I’ve changed my plea to guilty
    Because freedom is wasted on me
    See how your rules spoil the game

    Outside there is a pain
    Emotional air raids exhausted my heart
    And it’s safer to be inside
    So, I’m changing my plea
    And no one can dissuade me
    Because freedom was wasted on me
    See how your rules spoil the game

    Something I have learned
    If there is one thing in life I’ve observed
    It’s that everybody’s got somebody
    Ooh no, not me
    So I’ve changed my plea to guilty
    And reason and freedom is a waste
    It’s a lot like life

  5. Sister Im a Poet

    Sister Im a Poet

    All over this town
    Yes, a low wind may blow
    And I can see through everybody’s clothes
    With no reason
    To hide these words, I feel
    And no reason
    To talk about the books I read
    But still, I do

    That’s ’cause I’m a …
    Sister I’m a …
    All over this town

    Along this way
    Outside the prison gates
    I love the romance of Crime
    And I wonder :
    Does anybody feel the same way I do ?
    And is Evil just something you are
    Or something you do ?

    Sister I’m a …
    Sister I’m a …
    All over this town

    All over this town
    They pull over
    In their Citroen vans
    Not to shake your hands
    With Meths on their breaths
    And you with youth on your side
    All alone … lone … alone, waiting at the lights
    But not this time

    Sister I’m a …
    Sister I’m a …
    All over this town …
    All .. oh
    Oh
    All over this town

  6. Everyday Is Like Sunday

    Everyday Is Like Sunday

    Trudging slowly over wet sand
    Back to the bench where your clothes were stolen
    This is the coastal town
    That they forgot to close down
    Armageddon – come Armageddon!
    Come, Armageddon! Come!

    Everyday is like Sunday
    Everyday is silent and grey

    Hide on the promenade
    Etch a postcard :
    “How I Dearly Wish I Was Not Here”
    In the seaside town
    …that they forgot to bomb
    Come, Come, Come – nuclear bomb

    Everyday is like Sunday
    Everyday is silent and grey

    Trudging back over pebbles and sand
    And a strange dust lands on your hands
    (And on your face…)
    (On your face …)
    (On your face …)
    (On your face …)

    Everyday is like Sunday
    “Win Yourself A Cheap Tray”
    Share some greased tea with me
    Everyday is silent and grey
