"Damn... watch the beat!"

[This post brought to you by the "Please don't leave that picture of Hillary at the top of your page all night" email committee.] You snatch tune, you a match a cigarette, She pulls the eyes out with a face like a magnet. I don’t know how much more of this I can take. She’s filing her nails while they’re dragging the lake Once a lifetime, twice a day if you don't work you get no pay I been to the east been to the west But the girls I like most are the ones undressed
Don't just sit there on your ass Unlock that funky chaindance Brothers, sisters shoot your best We don't need this fascist groove thang And birds might fall from black skies, And bullies might give you black eyes, And busses might skid on black ice, But to me it's very very beautiful Only came outside to watch night fall with the rain I heard you making patterns rhyme like Some new romantic looking for the TV sound I'll see you're right some other time love Waking up at 6 a.m. on a cool warm morning Opening the windows and breathing in petrol An amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard Watching the tele and thinking about your holidays Hey, honest to goodness girl, I'd kiss you with the lips of the lord. But to be honest to goodness, i feel i have to wait for the word. And everytime that whistle blows, i'm stranded in my shoes. I can't go out to the store I'll just wait till my mother buys more I'll just have wheat thins and beer If I get sick, the toilet is near I was in my room and I was just like staring at the wall thinking about everything but then again I was thinking about nothing And then my mom came in and I didn't even know she was there she called my name and I didn't even hear it, and then she started screaming MIKE! MIKE! You spurn my natural emotions You make me feel like dirt And I’m hurt And if I start a commotion I run the risk of losing you And that’s worse It's not the end, No it's not the end

Elvis Costello lyrics...much more pleasant than The H-bomb. Hmmm, makes me wanna pull out his cd and have a listen.

I was so tired of being upset
Always wanting something I never could get
Life's an illusion love is a dream
But I don't know what it is

Are these lyrics pulled from several different songs? Because I recognize four lines from XTC's "Senses Working Overtime" ("And birds might fall from black skies" etc.)

I KNOW the title is from "I'm The Man"... great tune... I don't recognize much else in there.

My favorite Elvis Costello song. But the ooooold D˛ - that's the one that'll be stuck in my head all day.

(All I wanted was a Pepsi!!)

Suicidal Tendencies, right? Now I gotta' go and look it up, or it will be bugging me all day.

Ahhhhhh -
Captain Sensible.
