Animal Instinct :

Suddenly something has happened to me

As I was having my cup of tea

Suddenly I was feeling depressed

I was utterly and totally stressed

Do you know you made me cry

Do you know you made me die

And the thing that gets to me

Is you'll never really see

And the thing that freaks me out

Is I'll always be in doubt

It is a lovely thing that we have

It is a lovely thing that we

It is a lovely thing, the animal

The animal instinct

So take my hands and come with me

We will change reality

So take my hands and we will pray

They won't take you away

They will never make me cry, no

They will never make me die

And the thing that gets to me

Is you'll never really see

And the thing that freaks me out

Is I'll always be in doubt

The animal, the animal,

the animal instinct in me

It's the animal, the animal,

the animal instinct in me

It's the animal, it's the animal,

it's the animal instinct in me (x2)

 


  

Loud And Clear :

I hope that you miss me

Put me down on history

I feel such a reject now

Get yourself a life

I hope that you're sorry

For not accepting me

For not adoring me

That's why I'm not your wife

People are stranger

People in danger

People are stranger

People deranged or

I remember there was

Nothing I could ever do

Never could impress you

Even if I tried

Tell somebody who cares

Fill the room with empty stares

Go to bed and say my prayers

Keep them satisfied

People are stranger

People in danger

People are stranger

People deranged or

Loud and clear I make my point my dear

I hope that you never

Get the things you wanted to

Now I cast a spell on you

Complicate your life

Hope you get a puncture

Everywhere you ever drive

Hope the sun beats down on you and

Skin youself alive

Ra la la la la la la la

Ra la la la la la la la x4

 


 

Promises :

Uh... You better belive I'm coming

You better believe what I say

You better hold on to your promises

Because you bet,

you'll get what you deserve

She's going to leave him over

She's gonna take her love away

So much for your eternal vows, well

It does not matter anyway

Why can't you stay here awhile

Stay here awhile Stay with me

Oh, all the promises we made

All the meaningless and empty words

I prayed, prayed, prayed

Oh, all the promises we broke

All the meaningless and empty words

I spoke, spoke, spoke

Do-do-do, Do-do-do,

Do-do-do, Do-do-do

What of all the things...

...that you taught me

What of all the things that you'd say

What of all your prophetic preaching

You're just throwing it all away

Maybe we should burn the house down

Have ourselves another fight

Leave the cobwebs in the closet

'Cos tearing them out is just not right

Why can't you stay here awhile

Stay here awhile Stay with me, oh oh

Oh eh, oh eh, oh eh, oh eh,

Oh Eh x3

Do-do-do, Do-do-do,

Do-do-do, Do-do-do

 


 

You And Me :

I'm not going out tonight

'cos I don't want to go

I am staying at home tonight

'cos I don't want to know

You revealed a world to me

and I would never be

Dwelling in such happiness,

your gift of purity

Eh-ee-oh, eh-ee-oh,

eh-ee-oh, eh-ee-oh x2

Aahh, you and me it will always be

You and me Forever be,

Eternally it will always be you and me

Taylor, Taylor, Taylor, Taylor

I don't pay attention...

...to the ones who never cared

Find your own direction

'cos there's sweetness in the air

You will be the world to me

and I will always be

Dwelling in this happiness,

your gift of purity

Eh-ee-oh, eh-ee-oh,

eh-ee-oh, eh-ee-oh x2

Aahh, you and me will always be

You and me Forever be,

Eternally will always be

You and me Always be

You and me Forever be,

Eternally It will always be

You and me Forever be,

Eternally Taylor, Taylor x4

 


 

Just My Imagination :

There was a game we used to play

We would hit the town on Friday night

And stay in bed until Sunday

We used to be so free

We were living for the love we had and

Living not for reality

It was just my imagination x3

There was a time I used to pray

I have always kept my faith in love

It's the greatest thing...

...from the man above

The game I used to play

I've always put my cards upon the table

Let it never be said that I'd be unstable

It was just my imagination x3

There is a game I like to play

I like to hit the town on Friday night

And stay in bed until Sunday

We'll always be this free

We will be living for the love we have

Living not for reality

It's not my imagination x3 Not my x18

 


 

Shattered :

I'm trying to control myself

So please don't stand in my way

I've waited for the longest time

This is what I wanted in my way

Move over, move over

There's a climax coming in my way

Move over, move over

There's a climax coming in my way

I don't like you, don't compromise

Shattered by your weakness

Shattered by your smile

And I'm not very fond of you,

and your lies

Shattered by your weaknesses

Shattered by your smile

All the kids are going back to school

The summer's over it's the golden rule

And now I'm coming out to play

So please don't stand in my way

And all the things that seemed...

...once to be

So important to me

Seem so trivial now that I can see

Move over, move over

There's a climax coming my way x2

Please don't stand in my way

 


 

Desperate Andy :

He always holds on to his girlfriend

That's where he likes to be

He like to wear the ball

and the chain on his neck

A false sense of security

And when he goes he goes with a smile

And when he goes he goes with a smile

And when he goes he goes with a smile

And when he goes he goes with a smile

Desperate Andy a-a-a-a

Re la la la la la la

Desperate Andy a-a-a-a

Re la la la la la la la la la

The world is your oyster now

You can do as you want to do

The world is your oyster now

So go out and get high

and get whatever you want to

Ma-na-na, ma-na-na, ma-na-na, ma-na-na

Ma-na-na, ma-na-na, ma-na-na, ma-na-na

He used to be a closet biker they say

A 1957 BSA

He used to collect writing paper

They wonder wonder wonder

wonder wonder of

Desperate Andy a-a-a-a

Ra la la la la la la

Isn't it dandy a-a-a-a Ra la la la la

Desperate Andy a-a-a-a

Ra la la la la la la la la la

The world is your oyster now

You can do as you want to do

The world is your oyster now

So go out and get high

and get whatever you want to

The word is your oyster now

You can do as you want to do

The world is your oyster now

So go out and get laid

and get whatever you want to

The world is your oyster

The world is yours It's yours

it's yours it's your's

it's yours It's yours it's yours

it's your's it's yours

 


 

Saving Grace :

It could happen here today

It could happen here today

And I can't wait to see your face

No I can't wait to see your face

Can you hold on while

I take hold of myself

Can you hold on while

I take hold of myself

You're the little thing,

my saving grace

You're just a little thing,

my saving grace

It could happen here today

It could happen here today

You are my saving grace

You are my saving grace

Will you be strong while

I take hold of myself

Will you be strong while

I take hold of myself

It could happen here today

It could happen here today

You are my saving grace

You are my saving grace

 


 

Copycat:

They had an accident

and they never noticed anyway

A lack of originality...

...couldn't focus on the day

So much for the radio...

...everybody sounds the same

Everybody wears the same clothes now

and everybody plays the game

Copycat, copycat, copycat

Copy copy copy copy yourself

Copycat, copycat, copycat

Copy copy copy everyone else

I've got a great idea

I will change things on my own

I see my vision very clear,

wouldn't want to be another clone

So much for the radio,

the radio is sad Sad, sad, sad

They had an accident...

...but they never noticed anyway

A lack of originality...

...couldn't focus on the day

So much for the radio...

everybody sounds the same

Everybody wears the same clothes now,

and Everybody plays the game

Copy everyone else x4

 


 

What's On My Mind :

Baby I would do anything for you

Nobody's ever treated me quite...

...like you do

I've wasted too much time

I've wasted too much time

And I'm gonna tell you

what's on my mind

Yea yea

I was wrong all along

There could be somebody like thee

Here we are finally

I've found my I've found my

Maybe it'll be quite sometime

I love you forever

and we will be waiting in time

I'm wasting no more time

I'm wasting no more time

I'm always gonna tell you

what's on my mind Yea yea

I was wrong all along

There could be somebody like thee

Here we are finally

I've found my I've found my (repeat)

 


 

Delilah :

Shout shout shout Delilah

Shout shout shout

at the top of your lungs

Shout shout shout Delilah

Shout shout shout

until the kingdom comes

Stay away from me

Just stay away from my house

Stay away from me

Stay away or I'll sort you out

Shout shout shout Delilah

Shout shout shout

'till the kingdom comes

Treading on my dreams

Stop treading on my dreams x2

Out out out Delilah

Out out out stay out of my place

Out out out Delilah

Out out out

or I'll rearrange your face

He'll never really be

He'll never be your lover

He'll never really be

He'll never really be your lover

So stay away from me

Just stay away from my house

Stay away from me

Just stay away or I'll sort you out

Shout shout shout Delilah

Shout shout shout

'till the kingdom comes

Treading on my dreams

Stop treading on my dreams x2

Delilah x5

 


 

Fee Fi Fo :

Fee fi fo she smells his body

She smells his body

And it makes her sick to her mind

He has got so much to answer for

To answer for, To ruin a child's mind

How could you touch something

So innocent and pure

Obscure

How could you get satisfaction

From the body of a child

You're vile, sick

It's true what people say

God protect the ones...

...who help themselves

In their own way

It's true what people say

God protect the ones...

...who help themselves

In their own way

He was sitting in her bedroom

In her bedroom

And now what should she do

She's got so much insecurity

And his impurity

It was a gathering gloom

How could you touch something

So innocent and pure

Obscure

How could you get satisfaction

From the body of a child

You're a vile, sick

Fee fi fo x4

 


 

Dying In The Sun :

Do you remember

The things we used to say?

I feel so nervous

When I think of yesterday

How could I let things

Get to me so bad?

How did I let things get to me?

Like dying in the sun

Like dying in the sun

Like dying in the sun

Like dying x2

Will you hold on to me

I am feeling frail

Will you hold on to me

We will never fail

I wanted to be so perfect you see

I wanted to be so perfect

 


 

Sorry Son :

Sorry son, this is what I've done

This is what I've done

It was a long sad supper without you

I had to be cruel to be kind

We have to leave the past behind

La la la

And isn't it strange...

...how people can change

And isn't it weird how people I feared

They all seem worthless now

I will ride on my bicycle,

I ride thinking of you

As I'm riding on my tricycle,

I ride I see the sun in the trees,

and I feel the psychedelic breeze

And I see the sun in the trees,

and I feel the psychedelic breeze

Sorry son, this is what I've done

This is what I've done

It was a long sad supper without you

Please don't hold me responsible

I tried and tried

It wasn't the same without my brain

It wasn't a game, it wasn't a game

Oh not now I will ride on my bicycle,

I ride thinking of you

As I'm riding on my tricycle,

I ride I see the sun in the trees,

and I feel the psychedelic breeze

I see the sun in the trees,

and I feel the psychedelic breeze

La la la Sorry son Oh I am so sorry son
