Saturday Sun

Saturday sun came early one morning
In a sky so clear, clear and blue
But Saturday sun, it came without warning
So no one knew what to do

And saturday sun brought people and places
That didn't see much in their day
And when I remember these people, these people and places
They were really, really too good in their way, in their way

And saturday sun won't come and see me today
Think about stories with reason and rhyme
Circling through, through your brain
Just think about, think about people
In their season, season and times
Just returning again and again

So Sunday sat in Saturday sun
And wait for a day gone by

 

Scaffold

In Orient where wise I was
To please the way I live
Come give the beggar chance at hand
His life is on his lip

Three score a thousand times
Where once in Amazon
Where Eldorado holds the key
No keeper holds my hand

Unchain the gate of solitude
The ruler says you run
Run hard unto the scaffold high
Your chance to jump the gun

Oh how high the scaffold grows
The plant life of your widow
In black lace curtains brought you near
From out the plate glass window

The Minotaur with bloody hands
Is enraged by the sun
Caged he by the corpses
Brought forth by the dawn

In Orient is as I told
The buckshee hangman swears
For open crypts to silence
Nylon knots to sway by prayer

In Orient where wise I was
To please the way I live
Come give the beggar chance at hand
His life is on his lip

 

Scarecrow

You're too low to see me smiling
When I'm flying in the air
But you're too high to frighten me
Pretend you didn't see me
Pretend you didn't need me
Pretend you didn't see me
Pretend you didn't need me

To frighten away all the lost and the lonely
The sacred forgotten of yesterday's problems
Your wooden construction was meant for infliction
To penetrate pain with the thoughts from my mind

Can you see me scarecrow
Can you still feel free
For all your love scarecrow
And will you still be there tomorrow
And will you still be there tomorrow

Like moths around a light bulb, your brain is still bleeding
From visions and pictures of nature's young raincoat
If only my eyes were not pinned to your table
My arms would be grasping the lilies of summer
It's no good to be a scarecrow post
And I've said it before, and I'll say it some more

 

Screw You (Young Man's Blues)

When I was a boy I had a lot of fun
I lived by the sea, I was a fisherman's son
My mother she was a fisherman's wife
She was scrubbing floors most of her life

They said screw you
I ain't got nothing to lose
I could paper a matchbox
With the money I use

At the school I attended I got into fights
I was beaten in an alley on a cold winter night
The teachers cared less for the blood in our veins
They got most of their thrills out of using a cane

They said screw you
Oh you bloody young fools
I could get more sense
Out of the back end of a mule

So you see there's man who get paid for being slaves
And men who get paid for being free
And there's men behind bars who pray for the light
And men in the suburbs who pray for the night
And they're all trying to climb to the top of the mine
And all of them say most of the way
Screw you

I worked in the mill from seven till nine
Tears in my eyes nearly drove me half-blind
Trying to make wages that weren't even there
Taking hell from a foreman with the build of a bear

He said screw you
This is all you'll ever do
It's the only existence for someone like you

 

Season of the Rain

Ice thaws the sun when autumn comes
And Bristol trips and bugy rides are over
And the nucleus of everyone has disappeared
As winter holds my shoulder

So put on your make-up
Make up to me now
Kick off your sand-shoes
Throw them in the sea now
It's the season of the rain

You wear your big hat
I'll wear my check cap
Throw up your string bags
Into the old trap
It's the season of the rain
And I gotta get home
I wanna go home again

Castles in the country
See the maids of air
Rambling fires and canopies contain us
And the waters of the countryside
Wash away our cares
Leave the city lights behind us

 

Seasons

For our world, the circle turns again
Throughout the year we've seen the seasons change
It's meant a lot to me to start anew
Oh the winter's cold but I'm so warm with you

Out there there's not a sound to be heard
And the seasons seem to sleep upon their words
As the waters freeze up with the summer's end

Oh it's funny how young lovers start as friends
Yes it's funny how young lovers start as friends

 

Shakey Ground

Lady luck and four leaf clovers
Won't ease this hurt I feel all over
My life was one special occasion
'Til your leaving dampened the situation

Well well well
Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down
Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down

My car got repossessed this morning
Harder times I haven't seen in years
Girl you better throw me a life preserver
'Cause I'm about to drown in my own tears

Well well well
Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down
Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down

Well well well
Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down

Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down
Standing on shakey ground
Ever since you put me down

Well well well
Standing on shakey ground
Shaking, shakey ground
Standing, standing
Standing on shakey ground

 

She Sold Me Magic

Maybe, you're always maybe,
Maybe, maybe I love you
My thanks jaunty for the lower time
Maybe, you're always maybe,
Maybe, maybe I love you
But I keep follow something other side.

She sold me magic
She sold me magic
And all the believer things I needed every day
She sold me magic
She sold me magic
And all the believer things I needed every day.

Maybe, you're always maybe, maybe, maybe I love you
My thanks jaunty for the lower time
Maybe, you're always maybe, maybe, maybe I love you
But I keep follow something other side.

She sold me magic
She sold me magic
And all the believer things I needed every day
She sold me magic
She sold me magic
And all the believer things I needed every day.

She said I'm in my better life time
She said my soul is matching her a sign
She turn mine in all about she loves me strong
Will you love me love? She push me all again your love
Will you love me love? She push me all again your love.

Maybe, you're always maybe, maybe, maybe I love you
My thanks jaunty for the lower time
Maybe, you're always maybe, maybe, maybe I love you
But I keep follow something other side

 

Shine

Try to keep your arms in line
Come on at least pretend you're doing fine
You can wow em every time
All you gotta do is shine
Forget about content
Focus on style
Steal an inch on them
And they'll give you a mile
And smile, smile, smile, smile

It doesn't matter if you're large or small
Trapezeoid, short or tall
Even if you can't dance at all
All you really got to do is shine.

It doesn't matter if your life's a mess
The whole process will coalesce
Girls, just try to effervesce
All you really have to do is shine.

Give em the old razzle dazzle
Turn on the old pizzazz
There's no time for shilly shally
Give it backbone, give it welly
Bowl em over, knock 'em out
Show em what life is all about
Give them the old razzledazzle
And shine

It doesn't matter if you're unemployed
Only partially humanoid
An octopoid whose mind's a void
All you really gotta do is shine

It doesn't matter if you're special needs
Maimed or lame, or born in Leeds
They love to see a heart that bleeds
All you really got to do is shine.

Give em the old razzle dazzle
Turn on the old pizzazz
There's lime to shilly shally
Give it backbone, give it welly
Bowl them over, knock 'em out
Show them what life's all about
Give them the old razzledazzle
And shine!

You might be feeling lousy
You might be feeling blue
A little apprehensive
A minor touch of flu
I couldn't give a monkeys cuss
I couldn't give a fig
Come on son get over it
It's all part of the gig

Give em the old rinkle tinkle
Give em old kabam
Knock em sideways blow their minds out
There's no time for half time frolics
Grab the buggers by the bollocks
Show em what class is all about
Give em that old razzle dazzle
And shine Lights!
Doesn't matter if you're short or squat
Cerebrally challenged, completely shot
You might have it or might not
All you really have to do is
All you really have to do is shine
Give em that old razzle dazzle and shine
Give em that old razzle dazzle and shine
And shine
And shine
And shine

 

Shine on Through

Oh my love
I have cursed the stars above
That lead my heart to you
But as hard as I try
Still my love will not die
And the stars still shine on through
And the stars still shine on through

Oh my dear
Now this ship's too hard to steer
The tide has turned, turned on you
I have been through the lies
That I've seen in your eyes
But the truth still shines on through
But the truth it still shines, shines on through

So shine, shine on through the days we have to fill
Though we took our love so daringly
And gave it up uncaringly
There are feelings left not even we can kill

Oh my friend
So at last we reach the end
The lights go down on cue
I have wasted my time
But it tasted oh so fine
That my love still shines, shines on through
And my love still shines, shines on you
