A vs. Monkey Kong tracks

Lyrics


For Starters

Well we did this once before, and we're giving it some more
And it's OK to be as you are you know
It's always five on one and you notice when we're done
That nobody got hurt, you're the same as what you were you know

I've got something for starters, throw it up in the air
And I bet you don't care, we're getting louder

It sounds ok to me on the desk at ICP
Roll the tape 'cos we're rocking album two
And our manager don't mind, 'cos we put all that behind
We've got another bite and you know the time is right to rock for you

I've got something for starters, throw it up in the air
And I bet you don't care, we're getting louder

Hey, it's another day in "A"
I'm proud to be myself 'cause rock me this way
I've got plenty more to say, so let me clear my throat

Cause I'm not cool Britannia
Not getting any younger, they hate me in NME
I don't care where you've been
I don't care for your scene, you make me feel like an amputee

I've got something for starters, throw it up in the air
And I bet you don't care, we're getting loud

Monkey Kong

There's nothing real about your fight
There's nothing in the shit you write
You've got charisma in your hair
The make-up lady put in there.. and it's

One, one plus two is three, can't we get along? ((1+2+3+4)x(2+2+3+4)x(2x3)+(2+4) = 666)
Bring it on the Monkey Kong, it's just a name they got it wrong

Every second every day, every minute that you waste
You're not everything you seem
Keep on fighting for the right, keep on rocking every night
That's exactly what I mean
It's all gone wrong, they called it Monkey Kong

You're the captain of the team
You're the new king of the scene
You hire a guy to keep you punk
Laugh it up 'cause you don't know you're sunk

And Its One, one plus two is three, can't we get along? ((1+2+3+4)x(2+2+3+4)x(2x3)+(2+4) = 666)
Bring it on the Monkey Kong, it's just a name they got it wrong

Every second every day, every minute that you waste
You're not everything you seem
Keep on fighting for the right, keep on rocking every night
That's exactly what I mean
It's all gone wrong, they called it Monkey Kong

How high can you try....
How high can you try....
How high can you try....
How high can you try....
How high can you try....
How high can you try....
How high can you try....
How high can you try....

Every second every day, every minute that you waste
You're not everything you seem
Keep on fighting for the right, keep on rocking every night
That's exactly what I mean

It don't matter what you say, it won't change it anyway
You're not what you want to be
Every minute that you waste, when you're taking on the place
That's exactly what I mean
It's all gone wrong, they called it Monkey Kong

A

Hey we're gonna be around
Hey we're gonna work it out
Hey there's nothing to fight about
Today we're gonna be about

You hardly know me, you say I'm your best friend
Everything's ace, it'll work out in the end
Say that you love us, I don't believe that you want me to stay
You're hoping that I'll go away

I'm gonna be around
Hey I'm gonna work it out
Hey there's plenty to fight about
No way I'm ever going down

You hardly know me, you say I'm your best friend
Everything's ace, it'll work out in the end
Say that you love us, I don't believe that you want me to stay
You're hoping that I'll go away

You follow me here, follow me there
You mess me around like you think that I care
You think that I need you, you think that you own me
You don't think I see you, you don't think you know me
You can tell me all the things you want to say
'Cause I'll get better anyway

You follow me here, follow me there
You mess me around like you think that I care

You follow me here, follow me there
You mess me around like you think that I care

You follow me here, follow me there
You mess me around like you think that I care

You think that I need you, you think that you own me
You don't think I see you, you don't think you know me

You follow me here, follow me there
You mess me around like you think that I care

Hey

Old Folks

I don't know I'm born, I'm only young
I don't have a choice, you know I'm only young
I'm getting older, I'm getting smaller
Everybody tells you, "you've got to walk taller"
You did a war, and now you're poor
And like your friends, you're gonna get it in the end
You've heard it all before, you can't go on much more
It's not like I think:

The old folks are losers, they can't work computers
They die in December time

Can't put it off, you put it on, don't ever stop, it doesn't last long
The younger folks they don't understand
Back in the day, you're gonna get it in the end
You've heard it all before, you can't go on much more
It's not like I think:

The old folks are losers, they can't work computers
They die in December time
Fall down for no reason, the churches are heaving
The old folks they live their lives

The old folks are losers, they can't work computers
The old folks are losers, they can't work computers

The old folks are losers, they can't work computers
They die in December time
Fall down for no reason, the churches are heaving
The old folks they live their lives

The old folks are losers, they can't work computers
They die in December time
Fall down for no reason, the churches are heaving
The old folks they live their lives

[Backing for last 2 verses]
Same as everybody
It's coming back to haunt me
It's on all the time

Sitting in the summer
The days are getting longer
They don't remember why

A cost to everybody
They're always sad and lonely
They live their lives

Hopper Jonnus Fang

I want to feel important, want to think I'm worth it
Still feeling lame in the end
Sit in, in the evening talking to my robots
Still feel the same in the end
Spend a little time, spend a bit more cash, makes you feel aright
Want to know the truth, I feel the same as you do

Wake up in the morning, be careful what you ask for
It's never gonna do in the end
The telephone is ringing, let 'em do the talking
It's never gonna do in the end

I want to have a girlfriend, want a bigger garden
Still feeling lame in the end
Move to California, sell a million albums
Still feel the same in the end
Everybody knows, better than you know, it makes 'em feel alright
Want to know the truth, feel the same as you do

Wake up in the morning, be careful what you ask for
It's never gonna do in the end
The telephone is ringing, let 'em do the talking
It's never gonna do in the end

[Answering Machine Message]

Wake up in the morning, be careful what you ask for
It's never gonna do in the end
The telephone is ringing, let 'em do the talking
It's never gonna do in the end

You wake up in the morning, be careful what you ask for
It's never gonna do in the end
The telephone is ringing, let 'em do the talking
It's never gonna do in the end

Summer On The Underground

It's summer on the underground
So much sweat a man could drown
There's a panic on the overland
And London Bridge is falling down

The temperature is 92
It's baking in the vocal booth
All the tourists come in June
There's so many you can't move
There's people getting rich today
There's people that they've got to pay
There's lots of places I could go
We should be rocking in the studio

Don't feel like working today, I feel like getting away
Don't feel like driving today, I feel like getting away

Dalston is a wicked place
At weekends it gets off its face
And everybody calls you mate
But do they really want to know?
The drinks machine is running out
And please don't use that ticket touts
The ladies have it all on show
We should be rocking in the studio

Don't feel like working today, I feel like getting away
Don't feel like driving today, I feel like getting away

On my feet for a week thinking nobody cares
And I can't get to sleep thinking nobody shares
Are you taking to me? Get out of the way
We walk on the left and good manners are free
You don't have to pay
You know you just can't see, everything in a day,
Yeah I'm talking to you! Me? Yeah yeah I know

Back Here On The Underground
Back Here On The Underground
Back Here On The Underground
Back Here On The Underground

Warning

It's a warning, that's as far as we go
Warning, that's as far as we go

Save it for the Jury, 'cause I don't care anymore
You're not even worthy

It's a warning, that's as far as we go
Warning, that's as far as we go

I don't even know you, I don't even want to know
'Cause I think you're mental

It's a warning, that's as far as we go
Warning, that's as far as we go
Warning, that's as far as we go
Warning, that's as far as we go.... go....go
Thats As Far As We Go

If It Ain't Broke, Fix It Anyway

Coming back at you, record number two, what a way to start the day
Thinking big enough, with a stronger look
Got no back up plan in case we blow it

It's all the same old stuff, they think it's good enough
"It works" and nobody gets hurt
It happens every time, like anybody minds
They're telling me, "it's just the way it works"

Too much work to do, rocking new improved, keep it in the family
It's not over, 'till it's over anyway
It ain't broke so fix it anyway

Got a second chance and a fresh advance, what a way to start the week
Sack the formula, there's no need to bother
Got no backup plan, so let's not blow it up

It's all the same old stuff, they think it's good enough
"It works" and nobody gets hurt
It happens every time, like anybody minds
They're telling me, "it's just the way it works"

It's not over, 'till it's over anyway
It's not over, 'till it's over anyway
It's not over, 'till it's over anyway
It's not over, 'till it's over anyway
It ain't broke so fix it anyway
Fix it anyway

I Love Lake Tahoe

Four long years ago, searching for the snow
We found the Tahoe lakes, just about the perfect place
50 Runs at 'Heavenly', and the nights at 'Squaw Valley'
Yeah, the trees are pretty wide, "That's where Sonny bono died"

All is quiet on New Years day, think I'll try and impress my mates
So I jump into the lake, I won't do that again, here we go again....

The south shore has the lot, and last month Dave Lee Roth did a solo spot
And some German bloke got shot, every year we say the same
"Try somewhere different for a change", but we jump on to the plane
Yeah, here we go again

Don't Be Punks

[Answering Machine Message]

Alright There Jason....theres somebody on the telly... on 15 to 1 right now, called Adam
Perrys had sex with 3 Thousand People..... The End

ITS A

Buy a junk?, delay that moon?, you think we feel the need to prove
That we play the fucking tunes, while you're the one that's fucking you
Now if you'd ever spared a day, at these things that don't fucking go away
You can see that our contract says that we get to do this our own way

Who can't challenge what you do? Don't be punks!
Who can't challenge where to go? Don't be punks!
And when will we change our tune? Don't be punks!
You can't tell 'em when and much! Don't be punks!

At this point you fucking loser, you don't have a fucking opinion

Down On The Floor

I'm down on the floor, there's a man at the door
He won't let me in 'cause he thinks he's the law
He'll give me a shout when he's figured it out
Gotta pick myself up, what am I waiting for?
It's never enough, yeah it's never too late
I reminded myself that I'm starting again
You're telling me "never", it should be "whenever"

And when the world is swinging, I feel like I don't fit in
Don't even know the way, don't hear a word they say
And all the money making, I just want to have a go, I'm always up on time
Why can't I be just like the people that I know?

I've got what it takes, I'm bang up to date
You know how it is, I'm all over the place
Kicked in the face, I'm backstage, everyone here is half of my age
Standing in line, I'm hitching a ride
I'll give it a try but I don't have the time
You're telling me "never", it should be "whenever"

And when the world is swinging, I feel like I don't fit in
Don't even know the way, don't hear a word they say
And all the money making, I just want to have a go, I'm always up on time
Why can't I be just like the people that I know

Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na
Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na
Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na

Telling Me Never... It Should Be Whatever

And when the world is swinging, I feel like I don't fit in
Don't even know the way, don't hear a word they say
And all the money making, I just want to have a go, I'm always up on time and....

Why can't I be just like the people that I know

And when the world is swinging, I feel like I don't fit in
Don't even know the way, don't hear a word they say
And all the money making, I just want to have a go, I'm always up on time and

I'm always up on time and [x20]

Jason's Addiction

Pretty scary how they know you, it depends who you talk to
From the end to the beginning, only happy when we're singing

Smiling for the camera, crazy silly monsters, they think everything is great
Black and white not colour, eight times ten, no bigger, not tonight it ain't

You can try and put the face on, you can talk but it all goes wrong
You can put it in an album, like the "90's never happened"

Everything is easy, but they don't believe me, I think I deserve a say
Beds are made for sharing, but I'm way past caring, not tonight it ain't
Not tonight it ain't
Not tonight it ain't
Not tonight it ain't

[Break]

Not tonight it ain't
Not tonight it ain't
Not tonight it ain't
Not tonight it ain't
Not tonight it ain't

Trying to remember, nothing lasts forever, live it before it gets too late
On the never ever, pretty good together, not tonight it aint

Miles Away

Your Miles Away

I'm Not messing about, got a mile of self doubt
Yeah, you're not even close, yeah
Because you're miles away

Another day in bed, sorting out your head
You don't know what you're talking about

You're not right all of the time
It's funny when you're wrong

You're miles away, no-one can stop me
It's far from funny when you're falling over

Yeah, the robot voice, and the peoples choice
Yeah you blink and it goes wrong
Because you're miles away

You're not even warm, human after all
You don't know what you're talking about

You're not right all of the time
It's funny when you're wrong

You're miles away, no-one can stop me
So far from funny when you're falling over

I'm too skint to pay my debtors, uh-oh un-opened letters
Feels like a siege I'm under, how did you get my number?
Oh-oh it's for the better, than on the never ever
I'll get back and back and back and back and back, around we go

You're not right all of the time
It's funny when you're wrong
You're miles away, no-one can stop me
So far from funny when you're falling over

Miles away, no-one can stop me
It's far from funny when you're falling over [x4]

Getting Around

All your friends are famous, you're the man at pulling favours
Is that the best that you could do? Is that the best we can do?
You say it before, and say it again
"You're gonna be massive it's a matter of when"
Is that the best we could do? Do we owe it all to you?

You're getting around, you're getting me down

It's not that you're used to failure, you put the hours in the cheques come later
That's the best that you can do? It's time to take on something new?
You're moving in circles, you're all over LA
You're big with the ladies, so they don't think you're gay
Is that the best you could do? And do we owe it all to you?

You're getting around, you're getting me down
You're getting around, you're getting me down

And when it don't work out, you put them on the stand
Its not you're fault you got them eating from your hand
You say the words, and everybody leaves (I'm not "your boy" and that's not the point)
You change your hair, you fully rock a weave
You don't make sense and you don't want to know
You're self defensive, oh-uh

You're getting me down, you're getting around
You're getting me down, you're getting around
Is that the best you can do? Do we owe it all to you?
Is that the best you can do? Do we owe it all to you?

You're getting around, you're getting me down [x28]
