La Professor & La Fille Danse

Well I don't know if I'm wrong
'Cause she's only just gone
Here's to another relationship
Bombed by excellent breed of gamete disease
I'm sure when I'm older I'll know what that means
Cried when she should and she laughed when she could
Here's to the man with his face in the mud
And an overcast play just taken away
From the lover's in love at the centre of stage yeah
Loving is fine if you have plenty of time
For walking on stilts at the edge of your mind
Loving is good if your dick's made of wood
And the dick left inside only half understood her
What makes her come and what makes her stay?
What make the animal run, run away yeah
What makes him stall, what makes him stand
And what shakes the elephant now
And what makes a man?
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
No I don't know you any more
No, no, no, no...

I don't know if I'm wrong
'Cause she's only just gone
Why the fuck is this day taking so long
I was a lover of time and once she was mine
I was a lover indeed, I was covered in weed
Cried when she should and she laughed when she could
Well closer to god is the one who's in love
And I walk away cause I can
Too many options may kill a man
Loving is fine if it's not in your mind
But I've fucked it up now, too many times
Loving is good if it's not understood
Yeah, but I'm the professor
And feel that I should know
What makes her come and what makes her stay?
What make the animal run, run away and
What makes him tick apart from him prick
And the lonelier side of the jealousy stick
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
No I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
No I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
Hell I don't know you any more
No, no, no no...

Well I don't know if I'm wrong
'Cause she's only just gone
Here's to another relationship
Bombed by my excellent breed of gamete disease
I finished it off with some French wine and cheese

La fille danse
Quand elle joue avec moi
Et je pense que je l'aime des fois
Le silence, n'ose pas dis-donc
Quand on est ensemble
Mettre les mots
Sur la petite dodo

Ouvrir les seins
Où un poème plein
Que l'on a posé exprès pour le coeur
Puis au même instant
Se tenir par la main se promener en parlant de tout et de,
De....
Rien...

English translation:

The dancing girl
When she plays with me
And I think they are the times I like
The silence
No-one dates to speak
When we are together
Put the words on the little bed time

The girl dances when she plays with me in the rain
I miss her, why?
I don't know
It’s the song, the night, the wind
The little sleeping sound
Open the book
Where a full poem was settled in her heart then
At the same time we're holding hands
We're walking by and talking of everything and anything.

Somethin’ you’re afraid to show?
Is there someone else you’d rather phone?

Lonelily

I gave me away
I could have knocked off the evening
But a lonelily landed my waltz in her hands
In a way I felt you were leaving me
I was sure I wouldn't find you at home
And you let me down
Could have knocked off the evening
But you lonelily let him push under your bone
You let me down
It's no use deceiving
Neither of us wanna be alone

You're coming home, you're coming home

I gave me away
I could have knocked off the evening
But I was lonelily looking for someone to hold
In a way I lost all I believed in
And I never found myself so low
And you let me down
You could've called if you'd needed
But you lonelily got yourself locked instead
And you let me down
It's one thing being cheated
But you took him all the way through your bed

And now you're coming home
And I'm trying to forgive
You're coming home
And I'm trying to forget
You're coming
And I'm trying to move on
You're coming home
And you haven't called yet

You're coming home
And I'm trying to forgive
You're coming home
I'm just trying to forget
You're coming
I'm trying to move on
You're coming home
But you haven't called
You're coming home

You're coming home, you're coming home

I gave me away
I could have knocked off the evening
But I lonelily loomed her into my bone
You let me down
There's no use deceiving
Neither of us wanna be alone

Then Go

Among the afflictions
With which I've been marked
I'm not so pretentious
And not quite so dark
I get the feeling you're bored with me
And not through habit or frequency
Did your mother have you easily?
And if there's someplace else you'd rather be
Then go, then go
Then go, then go

Among the intentions
Which have been sought
Numbered and labelled
But none of them bought
I get the feeling you're testing me
You're saturated in urgency
You stick your probe in further
But you're still not pleased
And if there's someplace else you'd rather be
Then go, then go
Then go, then go

Then go, then go
Then go, then go

I would've lied for you
I would've cried for you
I crossed the line for you
I would've died for you...

 

Baby Sister

Don't wake up, baby sister, keep dreaming
Did he fill your cup? Baby sister, keep drinking
Or he'll hit you
He'll bleach your eyes
So be a good girl
Just for the night
And run, run...

Don't get stuck, baby sister
Leave this land
And read your books
Baby sister, wash your hands
Or he'll beat you
He'll bleach your eyes
So be a good girl
Just for the night
And run, run, run, run, run...
Run, baby sister (Ave Maria...)
Run, baby sister

 

Be My Husband

Be my husband, I'll be your wife
Be my husband, I'll be your wife
Be my husband, I'll be your wife
Outside you there is no place to go.

If you want me to I'll cook and sew
If you want me to I'll cook and sew
If you want me to I'll cook and sew
Outside you there is no place to go.

Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good

Please don't treat me so doggone mean
Please don't treat me so doggone mean
Please don't treat me so doggone mean
You're the meanest man I ever seen

Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good

Stick to the promise man, that you made me
Stick to the promise man, that you made me
Stick to the promise man, that you made me
That you'll stay away from Rosalie

Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good

 

Childish

I'm so childish, a little bit wildish
With my rumdiddlyumdiddlyumdiddly, I'm so deep

Well I'm so garish, a little unfairish
The way I pick you up, and drop you in a heap

I'm so unfaithful, in fact I'm a plateful
I won't kiss her, but I'll stare her up all night

I'm a stormy little singer, an unstable little swinger
If you're coming, come prepared for a fight

Well I'm so childish, a little bit wildish
With my rumdiddlyumdiddlyumdiddly, I'm so deep

Well I'm so uncaring, do far too much swearing
And if you read through my behaviour, you'll find I'm a creep

I'll play a stormer, yet in the corner
I'll be grumpy on my own, like I don't care

I'm a stormy little singer, an unstable little swinger
With a big rip, in the arsehole of my flares

Well I'm so childish, a little bit wildish
With my rumdiddlyumdiddlyumdiddly, I'm so mad

I'm so truthful, a little bit bruteful
But in sooth I know not, why I am so sad

I try my bestest, well as far the restest
Well it's just stuff that comes out wrong, and gets misunderstood

I'm a dandy little dreamer, a doctored misdemeanour
A didactic destiny schemer, bare with me if you would

 

Lonely Soldier

Lonely soldier go home
Lonely but never alone
Good eyes see nothin' to shoot
Good feet feel good givin' up good boots

Ask your father how do you fall
Ask your father how do you fall
Like a leaf sittin' on the ground
Good for nothin' except kickin' around

She died with her hand stretched out
She died with a hungry mouth
She died with a mind full of doubt
And thoughts of weakening

So may your river never dry
May your mouth never lie
And may you be satisfied to never know why
Sometimes someone just wants to die

Where'd you get those cuts in your hand?
I thought I told you about playin' in the sand
There's always someone careless with glass
There’s always questions you don't want to ask

She died with her hands stretched out
She died with a hungry mouth
She died with a mind full of doubt
And thoughts of weakening

May your river never dry
May your mouth never lie
And may you be satisfied to never know why
Sometimes someone just wants to die

So lonely soldier go home
Lonely but never alone
Good eyes see nothin' to shoot
Good feet feel good givin' up good boots

 

Unplayed Piano

Come and see me
Sing me to sleep
Come and free me
Hold me if I need to weep
Maybe it's not the season
Maybe it's not the year
Maybe there's no good reason
Why I'm locked up inside
Just 'cause they wanna hide me
The moon goes bright
The darker they make my night

Unplayed pianos
Are often by a window
In a room where nobody loved goes
She sits alone with her silent song
Somebody bring her home

Unplayed piano, unplayed piano
Still holds a tune, still holds a tune
Lock on the lid, years years pass by
In a stale, stale room, in the changing of the moon
Maybe it's not that easy, through the only window
Or maybe it's not that hard, in a stale, stale room
Maybe they could release me, stale, stale room
Let the people decide
I've got nothing to hide
I've done nothing wrong
So why have I been here so long?

Unplayed pianos
Are often by a window
In a room where nobody loved goes
She sits alone with her silent song
Somebody bring her home

Unplayed pianos
Are often by a window
In a room where nobody loved goes
She sits alone with her silent songs
Somebody bring her home

Unplayed piano
Still holds a tune
Years pass by
In the changing of the moon
