Hank

You look like you just fell
into a tin of paint.
Have you ever seen a halo
on a real saint?

I'll repay,
I'll repay,
Looks like it's time.
Looks like it's time to be beautiful.
To be beautiful.
To be beautiful.
To be beautiful.

I have a friend whose name
is Hank.
He joined the army so he could
drive a tank.

I'll repay,
I'll repay,
Looks like it's time.
Looks like it's time to be beautiful.
To be beautiful.
To be beautiful.
To be beautiful.
To be beautiful.

I'll repay.
I'll repay.
Looks like it's ....
Looks like it's time to be beautiful.
To be beautiful.
To be beautiful.
To be beautiful.

I have a thought here
in my head.
I think I'm gonna have a lot to answer for
when I'm dead.

I'll repay.
I'll repay.
Looks like it's time.
Looks like it's time to be beautiful.
To be beautiful.
To be beautiful.
To be beautiful.
To be beautiful.
To be beautiful.
To be beautiful.
To be beautiful.

Looks like it's time.

 

Five New Friends

All the years we had that drifted past,
I'd love to let you know its been a blast.

I know you tried to give the signs to me,
I was stupid and I couldnt see.

Fifty pence I paid for five new friends.
To feel accepted, even loved, in my innocence,
Innocence.

Five new friends and only one was real.
I know you wont remember how good you made me feel.
Feel.

I'll send a message to you back through time,
Just to let you know I'm doing fine.

 

Shiny Jim

Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shine Shoo ......
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo showed Shiny Jim,
What a friend could be to him.

I though brains might drain it,
You ...... contain it.
Isn't true at least not for you
It's only your whole shape is shaking,
All that stuff you're taking,
If you're in, begin,
Bring in coloured skin.

Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo knew Shiny Jim,
They all made friends with Old Ching Ming.

This is heavy weather,
Keep your head together,
If you shine it helps to pass the time.
Your whole shape is shaking,
All that stuff you're taking,
If you're in, begin,
Bring in coloured skin.

Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo saw Ching Chang Ming,
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo shot Ching Chang Ming,
Shiny Jim said not a thing.

He crouched on the ground,
As if that was what he always was,
His tired rolling eyes now rested on one small piece of ????ette
His lungs recycled the air of the planet that he lived on,
And it slowly dawned on him,
That he was as small as any man or woman could have been,
And what he was no longer compared to what he'd done.

Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo shot Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo shot Shiny Jim.
Cause he was friends with old Ching Ming.
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
Shiny Shoo, Shiny Jim.
