It's Not My Fault

Don't tell me to control myself,
Don't tell me to control myself,
I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love,
I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love,
I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love,
I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love.

Don't hate me, because I hate myself,
Don't hate me, because I hate myself,
I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love,
I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love,
I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love,
I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love.

Sheriff Brady and a four foot lady,
Died of happiness in a bowl of gravy,
Lying, washed up, on a piece of bread,
He wrote "I love you" across her head.
"I would die for you, I would die for you,
There's not much logic in the things I'd do for you,
How can I be happy when I've so much passion?
How can I be happy when I've so much passion?"

Sheriff Brady and a four foot lady,
Happy happy with a little baby,
Fill the world with it,
Fill the streets with it,
Fill your life with it,
Fill the sky with it,
Build a statue
Or something that you
Can take back with you,
It can be my gift to you,
It's great to greet you,
And I'm happy to meet you,
If you want to join me I'd be happy to have you,
to have you,
I would be happy to have you,
I'd be happy to have you.

I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love,
I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love,
I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love,
I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love.
And it's not my fault,
And it's not my fault,
And it's not my fault,
And it's not my fault.

I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love,
I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love.
And it's not my fault,
And it's not my fault,
And it's not my fault,
And it's not my fault.
I would be happy to have you
I would be happy to have you

 

Cello

It's just a touch,
It's the sweetest thing,
Like renaissance on my skin
It took a lifetime
To put these ghosts on the breeze

Cello

Forever circling,
Forever seeking,
Like a peace dove on the wing
If it takes a lifetime,
I'll catch that moment again

Cello

Cello

 

Happy Day

The streets were bright and the doors were all open
In this little place that we passed through,
You had your head turned away, but I knew,
You were smiling 'cos you always do.
Carrot cake in the afternoon,
And the sun in gleaming through the cream on the spoon,
Just me and you and you and me,
In a little mad hat
Down by the sea.

You thought the birds that flew above were stars,
But they were only birds.
Stars don't fly in the day,
Not where I come from anyway.
Just me and you and you and me
And you and me and a cacophony of angels,
All taking turns at singing tunes,
With those little mad wings
In the afternoon.

And we held hands,
And looked at the sea,
And the sea was our friend,
So was everything.
I'd like to freeze that moment in time
And wrap it up in tinfoil,
With little ribbons and tinsel and say,
"That was a happy day".

A living colour came from under a rock and said,
"Could you kindly remove that mad hat?
I'm trying to get some sleep down here",
So you did,
Disney, hey.
Now I've seen it all,
Now I've seen it all,
Now I've seen it all,
That was a happy day.
A happy day.

I'll try, I'll try, I'll try,
That was a happy day.
A happy day.
Happy day,
Happy day,
Day.
That was a happy day

 

Everything Comes, Everything Goes

Everything comes,
Everything goes,
Put a mirror to my head if you want me to remember.

I'm sitting on the planet that's beside the planet that's in front of the blue planet, with all the planets of planets that's not to far away (in space talk that is) from the big mad planet that's blocking the light from the sun, and making all the little planets' creatures sick and unhappy.
And I know that if those little furry creatures could just understand me for ten seconds, I could really help them out, but they only understand some sort of high pitched squeak that I can't do, too bad.

I was asked to gather my thoughts, and I agreed that this was perhaps a good idea, but as soon as I gave it a go, I realised why I had left them scattered about the place giving the impression of lots of loose cleverness, and the reason was, when I looked at them all together, I could see that there was only one or two.
That's very sad.
Too bad.

What dog? I didn't know I had a dog?

Everything comes,
Everything goes,
Put a mirror to my head if you want me to remember you,
Everything comes,
Everything goes,
And you know that I'd be happy,
If you remembered me.

Look, I don't want to bore you to death with all my personal problems, but
when I walked in here you asked me "Was everything OK?". That's quite a
lot of things to ask if they're ok, I don't know, I think my biggest problem
is that I sit around too much thinking of things, when I should be going
out with girls or even friends.
Anyway, how're you? Hope you're not still having unsafe sex with every
second person you meet. Still smoking Silk Cut?
It's nearly Christmas and you know what that means?
Yeah, the wizard of Oz.

The wizard of Oz.

Everything comes,
Everything goes,
Put a mirror to my head if you want me to remember you,
Everything comes,
Everything goes,
And you know that I'd be happy,
If you remembered me.

It's all go, it's all go!

Everything comes,
Everything goes,
Put a mirror to my head if you want me to remember you,
Everything comes,
Everything goes,
And you know that I'd be happy,
If you remembered me.

The west is dying,
Can I be God?

 

Fundamentally Loveable Creature

Someone somewhere
Has got a lot of money
From making bags that people put their stuff into,
When they're leaving home,
Like I'm leaving you

I've been drawing a map of the universe,
I've nearly finished putting the stars in
I've used up two boxes of coloured pens,
This place is big
How come I'm stuck with you for a friend?

You know, I've really tired,
I've been a pillar of strength at your side,
You're a fundamentally lovable creature,
But you've got defects in your design
You know, I've really tired,
I've been a pillar of strength at your side,
You're a fundamentally lovable creature,
But you've got defects in your design

 

Is God Really Groovy?

Deep, deep,
It's deeper than your deepest ocean,
When sheep sleep they wake up with some funny notions,
Great name,
Great game,
Is God really groovy?

Hip, hip,
Get hip and hop, don't be a hippy,
Cheap seats and seats that slip and slop are slippy,
Get strange,
Great game,
Is God really groovy?
Is God really groovy?

Is God really groovy?
Is God really groovy?

Break, break,
The breaks are broke and something shaking,
Snowflakes should wear crash helmets when they're making,
Dig SEAL,
Get real,
Is God really groovy?
Is God really groovy?
Good news, the shoes are blue
You've got to have it,
Good God, you really thought you were a rabbit,
Good news,
Great shoes,
Is God really groovy?
Is God really groovy?
Is God really groovy?
Is God really groovy?

Great news,
Great shoes,
Is God really groovy?
Is God really groovy?
Is God really groovy?
Is God really groovy?

Is God really groovy?

 

Love Me

[Lyrics]

Snow (Be Precious)

Carry on, carry on.
You'll be here when I'm gone.
You'll be strong,
You'll be proud,
You'll be precious.

Carry me, carry me,
Always in memory,
If you find peace of mind,
Take me with you.
Come a time, come a time,
When it's all gone behind,
You'll be strong,
You'll be proud,
You'll be precious.

And I know,
Yes I know,
Come a day,
Will be snow,
It'll shine,
Through the night,
Like a lighthouse.
You'll be warm in the cold,
You'll be gracefully old,
You'll be loved,
For your love,
You'll be precious.

You'll be precious.

Be precious

 

Ed's Got A New Car

Oh honey it's a brilliant thing,
It costs nothing to be as mad as Ming

Oh baby there's a loon astray,
He made history when he came today,
I'm crazy, but you get cold,
That's why he'll have you go.

Ed's got a new car,
Ed's got a new car,
Ed's got a new car.

I'm lonely, but I'm not that sad,
I've got lots of friends inside my head,
Mmm, no, you see the problems you,
This pressure's breaking you in two,
See I'm crazy, but you're just cold.
That's why he'll have to go.

Ed's got a new car
Ed's got a new car
Ed's got a new car

He made history when he came today,
He'll make more if he just went away

 

Going To Nepal

Goodbye jungle Jim,
Goodbye Mary Lou,
You look just like Bugs Bunny,
I was once in love with you.
Goodbye Auntie Flo,
I hope you don't get sore,
I don't believe the stories that you read me any more.

Goodbye Major Tom,
Goodbye Trapper John,
You better check your pockets,
Just in case your money's gone.
When you're tired of being clever,
And you're tired of being afraid,
You might just smell your flowers
And not the money that you made.

I am happy to be me,
That's all,
I'm happy to be,
I am an absolute nobody,
But I'm happy and I'm free.
I'm sitting on a rock
Up on a mountain in Nepal,
I'm happy to be nothing,
And I'm the happiest of all.

Mister Magoo,
Tell Betty Boo,
I bought most of your records,
But I stopped at number two.
When you're tired of being clever,
And you're tired of being afraid,
You might just smell your flowers
And not the money that you made.

I am happy to be me,
That's all,
I'm happy to be,
I am an absolute nobody,
But I'm happy and I'm free.
I'm sitting on a rock
Up on a mountain in Nepal,
I'm happy to be nothing,
And I'm the happiest of all

 

There's Something Wrong With Norman's Mom

If I'm ever hurt again,
It will not be by a friend,
It will not be by someone who tricked me into loving them,
It might seem immature,
I don't know how to forgive you,
I'll always love the memory,
But not when it turned into you

 

The Greatest Trick

The world's had millions of years to do,
The things that amaze me but are simple to you,
I don't know where to start, so I just dive in.
I'm looking for something I can regret,
Spend some time trying to forget,
I don't feel like talking much, today.

There's something pretty about the rain,
If you're clinically insane,
If you're lonely, if you're mad,
Or if you're sad.
There's something funny about the mess,
I have made out of ourselves,
We really ought to try,
To see the brighter side.

There's something pretty about us all,
There's something pretty about us all,
There's something pretty about us all,
It's just some times we cannot see,
I'll try to remind you every day,
It's the least I can do after what,
You've done for me.

I wrote the things I could not do,
Out on a sheet to give to you,
But when you held it up the page was clear.
This is the greatest trick I've seen,
You understand so much more than me,
I'd really like to hear your version of everything.

There's something pretty about us all,
There's something pretty about us all,
There's something pretty about us all,
It's just some times we cannot see,
I'll try to remind you every day,
It's the least I can do after what,
You've done for me

 

Christmas 22

Sent a bubble to the world today,
I just went glug, and it went on it's merry way,
Such a bubble you don't often see,
In a way it reminds me of me.
When I look back, all I see is jet black,
When I think back, all I want to do is laugh,
Nothing ever worked for me,
Unless it came with a PP3.

Every day is a miracle of happiness,
Every thought is the pinnacle of cleverness,
Every move is so beautiful and effortless,
I still miss you.

Benny Redbrick thought he was a Bolshevik,
Got the wrong train heading for Dubrovnik,
Ended up selling dodgy jeans to Eskimos,
Wearing heavy shoes to protect his toes.
He remembers taking somebody's advice,
On how his life could be nice,
When he writes home he doesn't say he's on his own,
Prematurely old in the freezing cold.

Every day is a miracle of happiness,
Every thought is the pinnacle of cleverness,
Every move is so beautiful and effortless,
I still miss you,
Happy Christmas,
22.

When I look back, all I see is jet black,
When I think back, all I want to do is laugh,
Nothing ever worked for me,
Unless it came with a PP3.

Every day is a miracle of happiness,
Every thought is the pinnacle of cleverness,
Every move is so beautiful and effortless,
I still miss you.
Every day is a miracle of happiness,
Every thought is the pinnacle of cleverness,
Every move is so beautiful and effortless,
I still miss you,
Happy Christmas,
22.

22.
22.
22.
22.
I still miss you.
22.
I still miss you.
22.
22

 

Separation

Gone to heaven,
In a tub,
A mildly embarrassing tale of woe,
Not a pretty sight,
But a nice way to go.
There's Christmas crackers
with your name inside,
If you're free why don't you sing a fee song.

We shared a window
With a pretty view,
Where once there was wonder, there's now just colour,
A blur to me,
But maybe not to others.
I don't look through now,
I'm afraid to see,
If you're free why don't you sing a fee song.

Separation.

Gone to heaven
On a cloud,
And though they laugh, you know inside
That no-one ever loves a clown,
But if the people clap,
You'll do it all again,
Just hope than everything makes it's own sense
In the end.

Separation.

Separation.

There's not many things as sad as a song bird
That no longer sings.
There's not many things as sad as a song bird
That no longer sings.

Separation.

There's not many things as sad as a song bird
That no longer sings.
There's not many things as sad as a song bird
That no longer sings.

Separation
