Working Man's Café cover

All Lines

I had no identity or individuality
I had nobody till I met you (2)
I had to leave the city cos it broke me down,
I had to put on my clothes because it made me depressed
I hadn't settled my bill so they cut off my supply.
I hate you but you know I would kill for you.
I hated my textbooks and my school uniform,
I have a vision of a new society.
I have broken all the rules. (2)
I have come to show you who you are.
I have destroyed what little faith you had in me,
I have seen them in my dreams,
I have to cry,
I have waited a long, long time,
I haven't got a steady occupation
I haven't got a stereo, radio or video
I haven't seen you for a while now
I hear a record you played or see a book that you read.
I hear a song that you sang or see a book that you read.
I hear it over and over on the answer phone.
I hear she ended up with a really nice bloke,
I hear that everybody's going there. (2)
I hear you're on the run from law and order
I heard him ask about my family - history
I held my world in the palm of my hand
I held you hand and I sighed
I hope it's a change for the better and it will brighten up my day. (2) (3) (4)
I hope that Arthur Seaton is alright.
I hope that Charlie Bubbles had a very pleasant flight,
I hope that everything's gonna be all right
I hope the world is treating you right,
I hope they are making it and they've all got stead jobs,
I hope tomorrow you'll find better things.
I hope we meet again some day, and spend some time together.
I hope you find what you are looking for
I hope your dreams were not forgotten
I join the creatures of the night,
I jumped on a wagon a-shootin' off down the road
I just can't go to sleep (2) (3) (4)
I just can't keep the tears from my eyes.
I just can't mix in all the clubs I know
I just couldn't face the world without mazuma.
I just couldn't function without money.
I just got an attitude,
I just got to learn to economize
I just had a really bad fall
I just smile and pretend
I just want to be a picture director,
I just want to stay the way that I am.
I keep burning up calories as fast as I keep putting them down,
I keep seeing the things that remind me of you,
I kiss you hello then I kiss you good-bye
I kiss your lovely lips.
I knew the face but could not tell
I knew the way that she felt 'cause her expression was real.
I knew you'd say that
I knew you then but do I know you now?
I know a man, he's a powerful man
I know a place not far away
I know a place not far from here (2)
I know a place where we'll be alone (2)
I know because the smile that's on your lips (2)
I know everything'll be fine (2) (3)
I know I'll get used to it,
I know I should be strong,
I know it's not the same
I know it well (2) (3)
I know of no game more fitting than the age old game of cricket
I know she's been with other fellas, why does she keep on lying?
I know that better things are on the way. (2) (3)
I know that I've let you down.
I know that I used you and I hurt you so,
I know that she'll be mine so I'll keep on trying
I know that someday we'll find a way.
I know that the world must keep on turning,
I know that we'll be all right.
I know that you'll survive
I know the pressure 'cos I've got it too
I know the Summer's gonna shine again
I know tomorrow you'll find better things. (2) (3)
I know you're making all the same mistakes
I know you're on the run, you shouldn't be here
I know you've got a heart of gold.
I know you've got a lot of good things happening up ahead.
I know you got troubles but you don't have to spread it about
I know you, you are a faker, don't try me I will take you
I leave the office and I want to relax.
I left for a life on the road.
I left it parked outside of my home
I left school, went straight on the dole
I like fog and haze. (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7)
I like misty water, (2) (3) (4) (5)
I like my football on a Saturday,
I like the simple things in life,
I look around that empty room
I look back at the way I used to look at life
I look like a tramp, but don't write me off,
I look out my window, but I can't see the sky
I looked in the mirror at my pigeon chest
I looked in the mirror what did I see
I love her, I love her. (2) (3)
I love sitting down by the riverside,
I love that girl for eternity (2)
I love that girl, whatever she's done, you know it hurts me deeply
I love you baby but I can't ball (2) (3)
I love you baby but I can't fall
I love your body-work, but you're really no use
I loved to wander wild
I loved you once from my head to my toe,
I made my play for my art school babe
I made the music , thought that was mine
I met her in a club down in old Soho
I might come in for a bite,
I might come in for a peep,
I might even end up a rock-and-roll god
I miss all the acquaintances we made
I miss the morning dew, fresh air and Sunday school. (2)
I miss the village green, (2) (3) (4)
I must be dreaming if she looks at me
I must be dreaming this world is a better place
I must get a cure, for my romance is at stake
I must have used every tissue in town
I mustn't stay in this job too long
I need a hymn for a new age (2)
I need something to connect to
I need something to look up to
I need you more than birds need the sky.
I need you, (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12)
I need you, but I hate to see you this way
I need you, it's true little girl,
I need you, you know little girl, (2)
I need you.
I nervously mounted the stage once again,
I never denied you and I would guide you
I never thought I'd love like this until I met you
I never thought I'd travel so far to work.
I never thought it of you
I never thought that you would let me down
I observe the people,
I offered my very best to you
I only ever see you when your chin's hanging on the ground
I only hope that I'll survive
I only hope that life has made us a little more grounded
I only wanna know a world below,
I only wanted to take a photograph of you,
I packed my bags
I plucked up my courage and I asked Lavinia to dance
I prowl around when you're fast asleep.
I pushed her away
I really blew it all, when I think it through,
I really lost it all when I lost you.
I really wouldn't want to cause no pain now
I remember and I'll always treasure (2)
I remember and I'll always treasure.
I remember when you started out,
I remember when you were down
I remember, when you were down
I ride a hundred miles an hour but I don't mess up my D.A.
I said I don't need your fancy cooking,
I said I wo-wo-wo-wo-won't (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)
I said it before
I said life on the road. (2) (3) (4)
I sailed to Hawaii in the U.S.A.
I sat down and started to jam,
I saw a band called the Rolling Stones
I saw my doctor he said man you look sick
I saw my reflection in the glass
I say a silent prayer for myself
I say I'll never do you wrong but then I go and do the same again (2)
I say I say
I say that you dance real close.
I say, "you take your road and I'll take mine."
I see a great big sunset
I see a little thatched cottage
I see it.
I see so little hope in you, (2) (3)
I see standing in line
I see standing in the road
I see the lines across your face
I see those ducks in flight.
I see thousands of faces before me.
I see your reflection in the mirror of love.
I see your reflection when I'm looking through the mirror of love.
I shall go to his office,
I shall not molest you
I shall say I'm doing research for one of my songs.
I shan't break your brain
I should've stayed at home,
I should be stronger,
I should ever see your face
I should have known, sooner or later,
I should have never come outside.
I should stay cool but want to shout.
I shouted to the heavens and a vision appeared
I sit and I dream about far away places,
I smile and say, "Hey, I was just passing through"
I spy with my little eye
I staggered through your chilly dining room,
I start to snuggle up and squeeze her so tight.
I stay at home at night
I stood by you through all of your depressions
I stood outside a department store
I stopped going to work, reading the news,
I stopped ironing my shirts, cleaning my shoes,
I suggest that you look deep inside you
I swear I've been working
I switched on the radio and nearly dropped dead
I take afternoon tea (afternoon tea)
I take sugar with tea (afternoon tea)
I take you out fist fighting
I tell my baby I feel so bad
I thank God that I'm still around to see another dawn in.
I think a lot but I'll stop trying
I think about that small café
I think about the friends I've left behind on the road
I think I'll get down on my knees and pray,
I think I'll get down on my little knees and pray, thank you Lord,
I think I'll just drift away
I think I'll make a call
I think I'm so educated and I'm so civilized
I think I'm sophisticated
I think my mind is gonna go.
I think of all the friends I've left behind (2)
I think of the Big Sky, and nothing matters much to me.
I think that I'll just settle down
I think that pretty Polly should have stayed at home.
I think the weather's changing, I hope the weather is gonna change.
I think there's a change in the weather, I hope good weather is here to stay,
I think there's a change in the weather, I hope good weather is here to stay.
I think there's a change in the weather, I think the weather is going to change.
I think this life is affecting my brain
I think you're sad.
I thought can this be love,
I thought I knew you then but will I know you now?
I thought I must be on a winner
I thought I was ever so cool,
I thought that you were my friend
I thought the city was paved with gold.
I thought they were my friends I can't believe it's me, I can't believe that I'm so green
I thought to myself "This is the way it's gonna be."
I thought we'd never land
I thought you had much better things to do,
I thought you said that (2) (3)
I thought you were an intellect,
I thought, "that's it, I'll get a band,"
I took a trip down Charing Cross Road
I tried to kiss her, she walked away,
I tried to meet you when you had your success,
I turned on the gas, but I soon realized
I used to fancy her a long time ago.
I used to have this spot on Main Street
I used to smoke cigars but now I suck polo mints
I visualise a day when people will be free (2)
I visualize a day when people will be free
I wake up in the morning
I walk along an endless corridor,
I walk around on my tippy toes,
I walked out onto the stage and started to speak.
I walked to the door
I walked you home in the night
I wanna go back the way the good lord made me
I wanna go home,
I wanna green salad on the side,
I wanna kiss but I'm sneezin' instead
I wanna know just what's in store for me (2) (3) (4) (5)
I wanna know what is to be
I wanna live, I don't wanna die.
I wanna lot out of life, but I know my limitations
I wanna pull out all the plugs before I finally blow my fuse.
I wanna scream, I wanna say,
I wanna slum and drink all the rum I can get
I wanna take stock, see my life
I wanna walk you up Lavender Hill,
I wanna walk you up Lavender Hill. (2)
I want life on the road. (2)
I want to be a better man
I want to be back there (2)
I want to be like Superman
I want to befriend you
I want to get out of this city alive
I want to make it my home
I want to sail away to a distant shore (2)
I want to sail away to a distant shore and make like an ape man
I want to stop but my head's in a swim
I want to walk eternity,
I want your love, I need your love,
I want your lovin' (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)
I want your lovin' 24 hours a day,
I want your lovin' 60 minutes an hour,
I want your lovin' 7 days a week.
I want your lovin' every single day. (2)
I was a lonely soul (2)
I was always in your head
I was awake, my mind was clear
I was born a slum gutter infantile,
I was born in a welfare state
I was born, lucky me
I was just a no one, a total nonentity
I was little more than a child.
I was minding my business when a bad situation occurred, shock, horror and fear
I was moved by the way that you said
I was playing detective
I was really up but now I'm down once again
I was riding in the car with my mum and dad,
I was sitting by the telly with my brother, Kenny
I was standing on the street with a whole crowd of people
I was standing with the punks in Praed Street,
I was taken to the local doctor
I was the best one you had, (2)
I was the one who always bailed you out
I was the one who gave you love. (2)
I was unprepared 'cos I was only a kid
I was walking on the coast road
I wasn't content, I wanted more
I waste my time away, (2)
I went out walking and it started to rain
I went to my local dealer to see if he could set me straight
I went to our café one day
I went to see a solicitor and my story was heard and the writs were served
I went to that old café,
I went to the good doctor and the good doctor said,
I will greet you when the sun shines again
I will keep waiting until your return
I will, I bloody well will (2)
I wish I'd acted with a little less haste.
I wish I could be dreaming,
I wish I could be like David Watts (2) (3)
I wish I had a crystal ball
I wish I knew
I wish it would get worse any way (any way)
I wish my eyes could only see
I wish my life was a non-stop Hollywood movie show, (2)
I wish that I'd been born with a little more sense,
I wish that I could find a way
I wish the day would come soon,
I wish things could be the way that they were at the start, (2)
I wish today could be tomorrow,
I wish you were out of sight, and out of mind
I won't forget a single day, believe me. (2) (3)
I won't search for a house upon a hill.
I won't stay around with you my friend
I won't take all that they hand me down,
I won a competition in a little column in my local paper.
I wonder how long it will last
I wonder should I take a chance?
I wonder should I take this chance?
I wonder what became of all the Rockers and the Mods.
I wonder what became of him?
I wonder what on Earth's my baby's doin'
I wonder where my baby's gone (2)
I wonder where my baby is tonight (2) (3) (4) (5)
I wore a mustache and I parted my hair,
I would be sad 'cause I wanted you just as you are (2)
I would have friends, but be alone
I would sacrifice all I have
I would walk up and down this lonely room
I wouldn't know what to say, I wouldn't know what had happened.
I wouldn't leave anyway.
I, I've felt her eyes burning my soul, (2)
I, I've seen her hair, I've seen her face, (2)
I, I shall die if I should lose Monica. (2)
I, I shall die, (2)
If ever you think about the happiest days of your life
If he's going to leave there's no way that you'll win him back. (2)
If he dies we'll send a medal to his wife
If I'm gonna be a cripple, I'll go all the way
If I'm to find God and be saved (2)
If I can't have you to myself. (2)
If I could live inside my dreams
If I didn't have a dime,
If I don't get better, I'm gonna die
If I don't wanna get left alone (2)
If I fade from people's hearts
If I live to be ninety-nine,
If I lived inside my dreams (2)
If I moved down road
If I return to Waterloo,
If I were king,
If I were lying, lying,
If I were Superman then we'd fly away
If it's good for your health
If it's just a dream
If it doesn't exist then I guess we can breed it.
If it keeps you together
If life's for livin' then what's livin' for.
If life's for livin' what's livin' for,
If my friends could see me now I know they would smile.
If my friends could see me now they would try to understand me,
If my friends could see me now, (2) (3)
If my friends could see me now, dressing up in my bow-tie,
If my friends could see me now, driving round just like a film star,
If only life were easy it would be such fun
If she's not at home I'd better go
If she's not at home there's trouble brewin'
If she really loves me she'll believe in what I say
If that's what you desire
If that's what you really want (2)
If that's what you really want then
If the face in the mirror
If there isn't any day-time
If there isn't any sunshine
If they're bored and they feel like a change
If they don't do something about finding out (2)
If they say it's real, it's gotta be the real thing.
If this room was to vanish
If this town was to vanish
If those ducks can fly, well so can I.
If we are living in damnation,
If we blow away the past with a bloody great blast,
If you're asking me don't take my advice
If you're asking me, don't take my advice (2)
If you're feeling down and under the weather,
If you're feeling down and you're under the weather,
If you're scared of the moonlight
If you're there, give us a sign.
If you're ugly money can improve you.
If you all want me to settle down,
If you are of this persuasion
If you come back to me Sweet Lady Genevieve,
If you covered him with garbage,
If you don't know which way to go
If you don't look at it, it's alright
If you don't think about it
If you don't want to come back?
If you ever change (2)
If you feel a bit low, I got a good peep show
If you feel a bit under the weather,
If you feel a little bit peeved,
If you feel down and you're under the weather
If you feel so inclined. Well alright. (2)
If you help us solve this crime,
If you keep on putting me down
If you leave me
If you let it, it will crush you down
If you like it please come back. (2)
If you look flabby
If you marry me, Bernadette,
If you passed me by and said farewell (2)
If you play in a band that's the road that you take
If you saw me now you wouldn't even know my name.
If you say you love me too
If you take it with me (afternoon tea) (2)
If you wanna touch some heat
If you want some real live action
If you want some satisfaction
If you want to escape, I can rent you a tape
If you want your money, you better stand in the line
If you will fancy all the girls you see, always.
If your hands start shakin'
If, if I could see
Ill equipped, running loose
Illuminated by the artificial light.
Illuminated by the morning sun.
Images of long ago, memories that you hardly know
Imaginary man, imaginary man
Imaginary man, yes I am (2) (3)
Imaginary paradise, perfection
Imaginary, imaginary (2) (3)
Imagine her surprise when she saw you on the news.
Imagine our surprise when we saw you on the news,
Improving our surroundings as we go
In a blink of an eye, waving goodbye
In a chauffeur driven jam jar, they would laugh.
In a dark and misty house,
In a darkness deep inside
In a deep dark jungle long time ago
In a land that I love
In a little discotheque.
In a misty morning glaze.
In a misty paradise.
In a plain simple working class position
In a second it can change from night to day (2)
In a second you can look away
In a second you would change your point of view
In a space allocated by the human race
In a space allocated to me by the human race
In a space, in a space, in a space
In a suburb somewhere someone's quietly planning their getaway
In a world full of jive, (2)
In a world full of rape,
In a world full of spite
In a world that's all glitter and glow, what do they know?
In a world that is close to breakin'
In a world that is full of hatin' (2)
In a world where there's so much to discover
In a world within a world (2)
In a world, feels so lonely and afraid,
In among the retail outlets
In and out of the bathroom by seven-o-three,
In Berkeley Mews, I first met you, (2)
In Berkeley Mews, I first met you.
In Berkeley Mews, was not listening.
In Berkeley Mews.
In case a little bit of emotion (2) (3)
In case a little bit of emotion gives her away
In case he shows a little bit of emotion
In case you've forgotten just who I am
In every house and on every street,
In every nation, every land
In his body and his mind. (2) (3) (4)
In man's evolution he has created the cities and
In matters of the cloth he is as fickle as can be,
In my hesitation I lost you
In my little life,
In Oklahoma U.S.A. (2)
In Oklahoma U.S.A.,
In our expectations for the future,
In perspective
In Regent Street and Leicester Square.
In that hot Australia weather
In the age of computers and communication
In the beginning of it all there was the land (2)
In the beginning of it all there was the land.
In the big black smoke. (2) (3) (4)
In the bleak midwinter when you're feeling the fear
In the city streets and motorways.
In the dominatrix room?
In the end what will it matter
In the hallway, in anticipation,
In the land of idiot boys,
In the metropolis
In the middle of the road.
In the mighty metropolitan port of London
In the name of globalization
In the palm of his hand.
In the real world
In the rush hour queues
In the shopping centre of the town
In the summertime (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12)
in the zoo man
In their cloth caps and trilbies.
In this crazy mixed-up muddled-up world that I live in.
In this world without feeling,
In this world without feeling.
In through the land of make believe.
In Waikiki (2)
In Willesden Green
In your desperation (2)
In your parents' car.
In your Shangri-la (2)
Incommunicado, in the land of living dead
"Inflation," "murder," "wars," who really wants to know?
Inform us, educate us with your media machine (2)
Inform us, educate us with your media machine,
Inhabiting this area until I die this space is occupied
Innocent days when they both looked forward to that
Inside it says that the product is Asian
Inside-out, wrong is right, (2) (3) (4)
Instead of studying the freeze frame
Instead of what I love to hold the most.
Into hours and hours into days
Into the great big nowhere (2)
Into the great white blue
Into the night.
Inventor and innovator.
Involved you in all my crazy schemes
Is a little girl waiting to be told,
Is anybody there?
Is by sitting in the midday sun
Is feeding their suspicious minds
Is for me (2)
Is hanging over the fireplace. (2)
Is he a tailor's dummy or is he a real man,
Is he genuine, or straight off the assembly line.
Is he gonna come back again?
Is he mad or is he sane? It makes for good conversation
Is in the Sunday Times.
Is it a dream or is it unreal reality?
Is it a dream, or is it the real reality?
Is it an illusion?
Is it from his fist, or did you really fall out of bed?
Is it just hallucination?
Is it me or you who's fooling
Is it merely my delusion
Is it mother nature
Is it my imagination, am I seeing what is true?
Is it real or just illusion?
Is it something playing tricks with my eyes
Is it the truth or is it only fantasy,
Is it the weather, or am I going mad?
Is it yes or is it no
Is just a repetition
Is lost in time and inner space. (2)
Is not to show one little bit of emotion
Is scattered like the universe
Is she a human being or a creature from outer space,
Is she a she at all? (2)
Is she authentic or phoney, I guess it's just a matter of taste.
Is she big, is she small? (2)
Is somewhere between Heaven and Hell
Is swinging up and down in a coconut tree
Is that a fact?
Is that all life's meant to be?
Is that the word of mouth gets my message through.
Is that why you have such bitterness?
Is the biggest killer that's around (2)
Is the biggest killer that's around today
Is the biggest waste of human energy
Is the only thing that keeps us together (2) (3)
Is the only thing that lasts forever (2) (3) (4) (5)
Is the whole thing a fake or the ultimate reality?
Is the whole thing a fake, or the ultimate reality?
Is there a change in my condition?
Is there a change in my position?
Is there a pill or a powder I can take
Is there life after breakfast (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12) (13)
Is there life after breakfast? (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9)
Is there no relief?
Is there nothing we can say or do?
Is this really it?
Is this the final station
Is this the price that we pay?
Is this the start of another heart breaker (2)
Is way above my head
Is your occupation
Isn't all it used to be
Isn't it a pretty scene?
Isn't it strange meeting you here
Isn't it strange, we never changed
Isn't you at all,
It'll cost me more in 1992.
It's a bummer, who gives a dam?
It's a crime, but does it matter?
It's a cruel place, it's a hard place
It's a cure for hepatitis it's a cure for chronic insomnia,
It's a cure for tonsilitis and for water on the knee.
It's a dark place, a mysterious place
It's a fact, that
It's a hooka hooka on the shiny briny on a wake a hola,
It's a jungle out there
It's a killing time (2)
It's a labour of love, labour of love. (2)
It's a long way to fall and I'd sure like to know (2)
It's a mixed up muddled up shook up world except for Lola
It's a moral decline
It's a pity that it ended up this way,
It's a quiet, quiet life
It's a state (state) (2)
It's a struggle, without a doubt,
It's a vendetta
It's a victory for order
It's a world full of fear
It's all because of that music
It's all in your brain
It's all mass production and assembly lines.
It's all on the surface
It's all over now (2)
It's all over the American way
It's all over, it's all over (2) (3)
It's all over, it's all over, it's all over
It's all over, this is the end.
It's all part of my autumn almanac.
It's all right (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12)
It's all right, yeah (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9)
It's all the music
It's alright (2) (3) (4) (5)
It's alright, it's alright (2) (3) (4)
It's always been that way (2)
It's apocalypse now (2)
It's apocalypse now, drift away
It's back to front and I'm all uptight (alright).
It's back to front and I'm all uptight (alright, alright, alright, alright).
It's back to front and I'm all uptight. (2) (3)
It's been a long time
It's been a long, hard haul on the motorway
It's been a while now and he seems so far
It's been a while, I haven't seen you for at least
It's best that we're going our separate ways, OK
It's best we go our separate ways
It's day time now
It's down the drain, it's all gone mad.
It's enough to put you off of your motorway food.
It's five a.m. and I've been creeping 'round the hall
It's getting crazy, going over the top. (2) (3)
It's getting late and we better go (2) (3)
It's gonna breathe right down on everyone.
It's gonna cover up the clouds
It's gonna drive you insane,
It's gonna make a nervous wreck out of you,
It's gonna put us in our place (2)
It's good enough for me, yeah yeah
It's good for your mind
It's got hundreds of windows, so the people inside can look out,
It's got power-assisted overdrive and carpets on the floor,
It's got to stop before it goes to fa-fa-fa-fa-far.
It's gotta stop because it's getting too hot. (2) (3)
It's hard to keep from crying, (2)
It's hard to move along,
It's in a state of ill repair.
It's in your head, it's in your eyes
It's just another day.
It's just another full moon. (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)
It's just been cleaned and I've just had it taxed
It's just like another world.
It's just the dedicated followers of fashion who like putting down
It's just the property.
It's like a ball and chain.
It's like a pattern, it's like a crime,
It's like another world, being here with you,
It's my faith and my religion,
It's my trade, I know it well.
It's never been like this before.
It's never too late, so why should we wait?
It's no surprise that I'm singing the blues.
It's not far away, love, but if you come (2)
it's not the end, so just carry on.
It's not very far
It's not your appearance, that they all detest
It's not your manners, that you gotta improve
It's nothing to pay to fly far, far away
It's obvious he's got things on his mind.
It's only a disguise
It's only a reflection
It's only a stormy sky. (2)
It's only juke box music, (2)
It's only life it's really fine
It's only me, dear, in my midnight disguise.
It's only moving, only moving, only moving pictures
It's only music, (2)
It's only natural.
It's only other people's lives
It's over for us, to tell you the truth (2) (3)
It's Piccadilly and it's really too hot.
It's power man, power man, and all that it can bring.
It's power man, power man, driving me insane
It's quite a trip for me, so this is reality.
It's really all right
It's really been quite a trip
It's really good to see us come so far
It's really good to see you rocking out
It's ruining my brain,
It's so depressing,
It's so easy to just drift away. (2)
It's so very hard to do.
It's stopped all our lives
It's strange how people want you when you record's high
It's strange we always go to church on Sundays
It's such a boring cliché.
It's such a complicated life,
It's such a dull routine,
It's such a shame. (2)
It's such a wasted life,
It's that man over there
It's the age of insanity,
It's the bravest move they'll ever make, but they have to make the break
It's the drugs and the drink
It's the killing time (2)
It's the only thing that gets him by
It's the real McCoy,
It's the same old story it's the same old game
It's the same old story, it's the same old dream,
It's the same old story, it's the same old game
It's the same throughout all history,
It's the wonderful world of capitalism.
It's time for all of us to move along.
It's time to come and join the young conservatives.
It's time to find some happiness
It's time to get rich quick.
It's time to make some money,
It's time to shout to everyone
It's time you made your getaway (2) (3)
It's too bad the simple ways came sadly to an end
It's too hot, gotta cool it down. (2)
It's too hot, it's too hot, it's too hot, it's too hot. (2) (3) (4) (5)
It's too hot, the temperature is up. (2)
It's too hot, turn the heating down. (2)
It's too late (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7)
It's too late now for you to make amends
It's too late now for you to say your sorry
It's too late now for you to sympathize, dear
It's too late, so late
It's up to you to go and make your own mistakes
It's very hard to please the people every single time, (2)
It's your attitude (2) (3)
It's your life (2)
It ain't no magic, ain't no lie,
It all depends on you
It all disappears on a bright, sunny day
It all seemed oh so surreal
It always ended up in a big row
It can drive you mad.
It can kill your spirit and destroy your mind.
It can make a nervous wreck out of you,
It can rule your head, it can bring you pain,
It can run you around till you're out of steam.
It can treat you well, it can treat you mean,
It could happen to anyone
It couldn't be the ratings,
It didn't matter in the artificial light,
It don't matter, 'cause I'd stay here anyway.
It gets harder and harder the harder I try
It gets worse, the older that you get.
It goes ooh-ah (2)
It had a new A/C and a cellular phone
It had brand-new stereo speakers in the back
It happens ev'ry day.
It has honour, it has character and it's British.
It hasn't got a garden,
It helps me to relax, dear,
It helps to keep me cool.
