Lyrics

London Song

Live and direct from London carry on, carry on!
Live and direct from London carry on, carry on!

I’m at a Down Place on the Bridge Avenue even Nightingales make me Blue
I’m at a Down Place on the Bridge Avenue even Rock’n’Roll makes me Blue

Let’s go Play Tennis in Paris Garden
We could Ask the Mermaid and the Blue Lion
To Join us on the Sugar Quay if they’re Not on a Pilgrimage to the Moon 
If they Are, Let’s Ask the Angel and the Bride I know they’re on the Cheapside

I’m at a Down Place on the Bridge Avenue even Beck’s‘ Lyrics make me Blue
I’m at a Down Place on the Bridge Avenue even Harry Potter makes me Blue
I’m at a Down Place on the Bridge Avenue even the Riverside makes me Blue
I’m at a Down Place on the Bridge Avenue even R. Pattz makes me Blue

What if we Went Bowling on a Threadneedle
Batman could catch the Ball
And we could share some Pepper Mint Crisps
And be stars in Holland

Darling oh, don’t You Want to Meet me oh yeah
Darling oh, don’t You Want to Meet me oh yeah, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Darling oh, don’t You Want to Meet me oh yeah
Darling oh, don’t You Want to Meet me oh yeah oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Dear

I’m at a Down Place on the Bridge Avenue
Heaven knows how much Spice there’s in the Stew
I’m at a Down Place on the Bridge Avenue
I think I’d quite like something New
I’m at a Down Place on the Bridge Avenue
and as always there’s Water in my Shoe
I’m at a Down Place on the Bridge Avenue
There’s a Violet Viking in View!

On the Bridge Avenue, I’m at a Down Place
On the Bridge Avenue I’m at a Down Place, oh!
I’m at a Down Place on the Bridge Avenue…
Live and direct from London carry on, carry on!
Live and direct from London carry on, carry on…

Ceasefire

It is so easy to give up
And to blame the others for
All the things that make us cry
And resort to start a war

Why don’t we try a ceasefire?
Why don’t we try a ceasefire?

When did we start to drift apart?
When did we start to put the blame?
Is there no way to reconcile?
Is there no way to stop the pain?
Why does our pride make it so hard?
To say sorry for what went wrong?
Why can’t we make a new start?
Why do we have to shoot and fall?

Why don’t we make a ceasefire?
Why don’t we make a ceasefire?

And it is much harder to forgive
Once blood and tears have been shed
We’ve already crossed that line
(But) there was a time when we were friends

Is it so hard to remember?
Is it so hard to remember?

Did none of this survive?
We’re too blinded by our pride…

Before words start to escalate
And we say things that we regret
Before the scars reopen wide
And before we all die
Why don’t we make a ceasefire?
Why don’t we make a ceasefire?
            
I know we will never forget
About the past and our mistakes
But in our hearts isn’t there room
For some kind of forgiveness
We could make a ceasefire…
We could make a ceasefire…

Why do you want to carry on
When it’ll hurt us even more
Can’t you see none of us has won
Even if we’ll never be like before

Why don’t we try a ceasefire?
Why don’t we make a ceasefire?

Some May Go

Some may go Far Away
To escape their demons Overcome pain
Baby Baby you know
Oh oh, Nothing
Of the pain you left
Oh, oh, In me
All I wanna know is why You even sickened me
Of my beloved city Why I had to go miles away
To forget you

Some may go Deep inside
And weep it all off In time
Oh oh Baby you know
Oh oh, Nothing
Of the pain you left
Oh, oh, In me
All I wanna know is why You even sickened me
Of my beloved city Why I had to go miles away

Whenever back
I can’t help suffocating
You left your mark
I no longer feel I’m in

Some may go Far Away
Some may go Far Away
Some may go

I'm Not Forgiving You

I’m not forgiving you
For screwing up my life
I bet that you’re still The mother fucker you were
I don’t care if you’ve changed
I don’t care if you’re better
For me you will always be the bastard you were

Little cock
Mustn’t have changed since
Bad fuck
I hope you have improved
Wish you luck
To find a girl that stays
Or maybe she’s already run away? Far away… Oh, oh…

I know it’s easy to
Write a hate song when you’re
Not here to defend yourself but how good it feels
Just to be able to
Say only bad things ‘bout you
With how you behaved I think I earned the right to, to dis’ you

Little cock
Mustn’t have changed since
Bad fuck
I hope you have improved
Wish you luck
To find a girl that stays
Or maybe she’s already run away? Run away…

Little cock, Bad Fuck (ad lib)

Cantata No.147 Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben (Choral)

Wohl mir, dass ich Jesum habe,
O wie feste halt ich ihn,
Dass er mir mein Herze labe,
Wenn ich krank und traurig bin.

Jesum hab ich, der mich liebet
Und sich mir zu eigen gibet;
Ach drum lass ich Jesum nicht,
Wenn mir gleich mein Herze bricht.

Non Voglio Un Caffè

Non voglio un caffè
Non voglio un caffè
Non voglio un caffè
Non voglio un caffè
Quante volte te l’ho detto, dimmi ?
Quante volte te l’ho detto, dimmi ?
Quante volte te l’ho detto, dimmi ?
Quante volte te l’ho detto, dimmi ?

Non voglio un caffè!
Perché ti dimentichi sempre?
A me piace solo il Tè!
Il tuo caffè non lo voglio bere !

Mi porti il dolce
Con il tè starebbe bene
Non voglio sentire
Mai più del tuo caffè

Che cosa aspetti cosi?
Presto! Dolce e il tè!

Sunday Morning

I wake up on a Sunday Morning
Not sure it’s the right day at all
I should go back to sleep it’s early
I’ll worry bout it later on

I wake up on a Sunday morning
I don’t know what to do at all
Feel sleepy don’t want to get out of bed
Damn it’s Sunday after all

I see you
And I don’t really know
Who’s at my side
A look around
And I think I am, shit I’m tied

I wake up on a Sunday morning
I don’t even know what the name
Of my guest is oh now she wakes up

And she says:
- Have you slept well?
-Can you untie me?
- Not sure baby. Think we should get another round.

She is not pretty so I ask her
If she’s got some booze to get by.

It all comes back to me in a flash
I know who you are
The girl I used to bully at school
I don’t like that smile!

I thought it was a Sunday morning
That I got whipped until she found
I’d cried enough so she untied me
And let me go in briefs to town

It was never on a Sunday morning
In fact it was Wednesday and My
boss wasn’t too happy about it
I missed the deal of a lifetime

Morality when a girl you know
You’ve hurt in the past
Is at the party you’d better go
Before you’re tied!

J’te ramène à la boutique

J’faisais du lèche-vitrines... C’tait les soldes
J'marchais un peu sans but... J'errais seul
J’cherchais une bonne occase... Sans y croire
Et je suis tombé sur toi par hasard

J’te ramène à la boutique
Tu m’allais pas si bien que ça
Même en déballant le plastique
J’me sentais pas si bien en toi

Bon ça n'a pas été le coup de foudre
Il a fallu un petit peu en découdre
En cabine d’essayage j’avais un peu l'doute,
Sur un coup d'tête j’ai foncé quoi qu’il en coûte

J’te ramène à la boutique
Tu m’allais pas si bien que ça
Même en déballant  le plastique
J’me sentais pas si bien en toi

En me réveillant le lendemain
Je savais plus très bien
Si j’avais encore envie de toi
J’sais pas si c’est le coloris,
Cette bizarre asymétrie
En t’rééssayant j’ai su que...
J'ai su que toi et moi
ça n’irait pas au-delà...

J’t’ai ramené ils voulaient pas me rembourser.
T’avais pas de défaut visible... T'échanger ?
Il a pas voulu en entendre parler
Il en démordait pas c’était grillé

J’te ramène à la boutique
Tu m’allais pas si bien que ça
Même en déballant  le plastique
J’me sentais pas si bien en toi (x2)

Du coup je t’ai gardé, bien obligé
Une dernière fois, j't'ai renfilé
Mais vraiment Tu n'm'allais pas...
Alors je t'ai jeté.
