Beetlebum
Beetlebum,
What you done,
Sheís a gun,
Now what you done,
Beetlebum,
Get nothing done,
You beetlebum,
Just get numb,
Now what you done,
Beetlebum,

And when she lets me slips away,
She turns me on and all my violence is gone,
Nothing is wrong,
I just slip away and I am gone,
Nothing is wrong,
She turns me on,
I just slip away and I am gone,

Beetlebum,
Because youíre young,
Sheís a gun,
Now what you done,
Beetlebum,
Sheíll suck your thumb,
Sheíll make you cum,
Coz, sheís your gun,
Now what youíve done,
Beetlebum,

Heís on, heís on, heís on it.

Song 2
I got my head checked,
By a jumbo jet,
It wasnít easy but nothing is,
No,

When I feel heavy metal,
And Iím pins and Iím needles,
Well, I lie and Iím easy,
All the time but Iím never sure why I need you,
Pleased to meet you,

I got my head done,
When I was young,
Itís not my problem,
Itís not my problem,

When I feel heavy metal,
And Iím pins and Iím needles,
Well I lie and Iím easy,
All the time but Iím never sure why I need you,
Pleased to meet you,

Yeah, Yeah,
Yeah, Yeah,
Yeah, Yeah, 
Oh Yeah.

Country Sad Ballad Man
Yeah I found no where,
It got to know me,
Let me sleep all day,
Spent the money,
I havenít felt my legs,
Since the summer,
And I donít call my friends,
Forgot their numbers,

VIP 223,
Had my chances,
Or did they have me,
Now stay up nights,
Watch T.V.

Iím country sad,
Iím a ballad man,

Iím on the come back road,
Yeah Iím on a blizzard,
And in my motor home,
Sweat on my pillow,

Iím a ballad manÖ

M.O.R.
Itís automatic,
I need to unload,
Under the pressure,
Go middle of the road,
Fall into fashion,
Fall out again,
We stick together,
Coz it never ends,

1st Chorus
Here comes a low,
Iím a boy and youíre a girl,
Here comes a high,
The only ones in the world,
You and me can work it out,
Here it comes,
You Me, weíll work it out!

Here comes tomorrow,
123 episodes,
We stick together,
Go middle of the road,
Cause thatís entertainment,
Itís the sound of the wheel,
It rolls on forever,
You know how it feels,

2nd Chorus
Here comes a low,
Iím a boy and youíre a girl,
Here comes a high,
The only ones in the world,
Here comes everything,
Weíre like monkeys out in space,
Here it comes,

Repeat 1st Chorus

Itís automatic,
I need to unload,
Under the pressure,
Gone middle of the road.

On Your Own
Holy man tiptoed his way across the Ganges,
The sound of magic music in his ears,
Videod by a bus load of tourists,
Shiny shellsuits on and drinking lemonade,
Now I got a funny feeling which I bought mail order,
From a man in a tepee in California,
Said he once was that great game show performer,
Then he blew all his money away,
Blew it all away,

So take me home,
Donít leave me alone,
Iím not that good,
But Iím not that bad,
No psycho killer,
Hooligan gorilla,
I dream to riot,
Oh you should try it,
My joy of life is on the roll,
And weíll all be the same in the end,

Then youíre on your own *2

Well we all go happy day glow in the discos,
The sound of magic music in our brains,
Someone stumbles to the bathroom with the horrors,
Says lord give me time for Iíve jumped into space,
Iím in outer space,

So take me home,
Donít leave me alone,
Iím not that good,
But Iím not that bad,
No psycho killer,
Hooligan gorilla,
I dream to riot,
Oh you should try it,
Iíll eat parole get gold card soul,
My joy of life is on the roll,
And weíll all be the same in the end,

Then youíre on your own *2

If anyone knows what Damon actually says in Theme from Retro please let me know.

Youíre so Great
Sad drunk and poorly,
Sleeping really late,
Sad drunk and poorly,
Not feeling to great,
Wandering lost in a town full of frowns,
Sad drunk and poorly,
Dogs digging up the ground,

And I fee the light in the night and in the day,
And I feel the light when the skyís just mud and grey,
And I feel the night when you tell me itís okay,
Cozí youíre so great and I love you,

Tea, tea and coffee,
Helps to start the day,
Tea, tea and coffee,
Shaking all the way,
Cities alive, a surprise so am I,
Tea, tea and coffee, get no sleep today,

And I feel the light in the night and in the day,
And I feel the light when the skyís just mud and grey,
And I feel the night when you tell me itís okay,
Cozí youíre so great and I love you.

Death of a Party
The death of a party,
Came as no surprise,
Why did we bother,
Should have stayed away,

Another night,
And I thought well well,
Go to another party,
And hang myself,
Gently on the shelf,

The death of the teenager,
Standing on his own,
Why did he bother,
Should have slept alone,

Another night,
And I thought well well,
Go to another party,
And hang myself,
Gently on the shelf.
(repeat)

Chinese Bombs
He makes an inner arm block,
Then kicks from behind,
The lights they go off,
But he can fight blind,
Cozí he got the touch,
But he wonít live long,
Cozí he comes from Hong Kong,
Where justice is done,

Chinese Bombs, millions jump,
Chairmanís junk, USA,
Wonít somebody, wonít somebody,
Sink the place,

Got a cab to go to Soho,
The dragon says go,
Let everyone know,
You got the touch,
You come from Hong Kong,
Where people are strong,
And you wonít live long,

Chinese Bombs, millions jump,
Chairmanís junk to Hong Kong,
Bruce Lee comes to save the day,
Bruce Lee comes the Chinese way.

Iím Just a Killer For Your Love
I heard a man who had no lungs,
He took me in and made me lunch,
He told me how Iíd lost a friend,
He smiled at me it was the end,
I said

Iím just a killer for your love *4

I cut my hair off in the road,
I take my coat off and dropped my load,
I wipe my hands on the grass,
Cozí I know that nothing never lasts,
And I said

Iím just a killer for your love *4

Look Inside America
Good morning lethargy,
Drink Pepsi itís good for energy,
The bathís on smoke in the bedroom,
Sore throat and on my neck a nasty bruise,
Where it came from, well I donít know,
We played last night, it was a good show,

Got the play-out on a second rate chat show,
Itís a nationwide deal, so we gotta go,
Chuck from the company says itíll be alright,
Got an ad on K-ROQ and thereís an instore tonight,
Well I build things up,
Then I let them go,
Got to get time-share on the radio,

Chorus
Look inside America, sheís alright, sheís alright,
Sitting out the distance but Iím not trying to make her mine,
Looking for America,
With itís kookie nights and suicide,
Where the T.V. says itís alright,
Cozí everybodyís hung up on something or other,

Steppiní off in 20 so the driver says,
I should sleep tonight but I think Iíll watch videos instead,
Annie Hall leaves New York in the end,
Press rewind Woody gets her back again,
And the whole world could have passed through me,
But I donít know if it means that much to me,

Chorus
Look inside America, sheís alright, sheís alright,
Sitting out the distance but Iím not trying to make her mine,
Looking for America,
With its kookie nights and suicide,
Where the T.V. says itís alright,
Cozí everybodyís strung out on something or other,

And the whole world could have passed through me,
But I donít know if it means that much to me.

Strange News from Another Star
All I want to be is washed out by the sea,
No death star over me,
Wonít give me any piece,
All I want is light relief,
Put the crazies on the street,
Give them guns and feed them meat,
Now shoot the death star down,
Dig a h0ole and put it down,
Thousand miles underground,

Chorus
They say itís no game,
Thereís strange news from another star,
Iím lost, Iím lost,
Thereís strange news from another star,

Give me all your stuff,
Until I canít get up,
Watch the whole world freeze,
Counting tin cans in our sleep,
Submarines are diving deep,

I donít believe in me,
I donít believe in me,
All Iíve ever done is tame,
Will you love me all the same,
Will you love me though,
Itís always the same.

Repeat Chorus

Moviní On
At the music heist,
I met the gourmet man,
With aluminium lungs,
Sucks out all he can,

Sees the whole world go flip,
In a stunt bug style,
Cozí heís a parasite,
With a cellulite pile,
But he can smile,

This is the music,
And weíre moviní on, weíre moviní on *2

Weíre sticky eyes and sticky bones,
You get no time on your own,
You get a dose and a ghost,
You get coast to coast,
Dye your hair black,
Get Satan tattooed on your back,
Pierce yourself with a coke can,
Rub yourself in fake tan Now youíre in the band,

Chorus
Cozí this is the music,
And weíre moviní on, weíre moviní on,
Hey this is the music,
And weíre moviní on, weíre moviní on,
No matter how low, Thereís always further to go,
Weíre moviní on, weíre moviní on,
No matter how low thereís always further to go,
Weíre moviní on, weíre moviní on.

Repeat Chorus

Essex Dogs
I remember thinkiní murder in the car,
Watching dogs somersault through sprinklers on tiny lawns,
I remember the graffiti, we are your children coming in with spray cans and paint,
I remember the sunset and the plains of cement,
And the way the night seems to turn the colour of orangeade,

In this town cellular phones are hot with Teens,
In this town we all go to terminal pubs,
It helps us sweat out those angry bits of life,
From this town the English Army grind their teeth into glass,
Youíll get a kick tonight,
Smell of puke and piss,
Smell of puke and piss on your stilettos,

Here comes that panic attack,
My heart stops, then it starts,
Give me a drink,
Iíll drink your round,
Iíll take you round the pole,
Itís cold up here,
Youíll catch the flu or youíll catch the city,
Either way youíll catch the flu,
Or youíll catch the city.
