1. Turn It Up:

Turn it up, I don't know where you're plugging in
Listen up, yeah we're all set to begin
Turn it up, 'cause we hope you like it lots
Would you really love, any second glance?

Make and like, cheeky monkey grins
And for tonight, I'd love you let you in




2. Foghorn:

Sick of you, how old do you think you are?
Never move, you think everything's too far
Telling you you're a fool, but you don't wanna know
Thinking through and let me tell you, you're not even close...yeah I tell ya

I can't stay you're in the way, so listen when I'm talking
It's better than I write, remember every night
Say to me you might, be the one

What kept you, I'm not bothered anymore
Can't place it, get me heading for the door
Foot down, you know I like to look outside
You found it, you found something that you like...yeah I tell ya

I can't stay you're in the, so listen when I'm talking
Tell me when I should, i don't drink in your pub
What makes you think I work round your ohhhhohhhhhhhh

Don't feel bad, don't look back, don't feel bad
Don't feel bad and don't look back, I don't feel bad

Shame on you, you hate everything thats new
Look down your nose at everything I do
You catch on years later, you're not even slow
Can't stay have a good time, now I've gotta go

I can't stay you're in the way, so listen when I'm talking
It's better than I write, remember every night
Say to me I might, when I'm talking
Go look in a book, tell me when I should
Makes you think I would when I'm talking
It's better than I write, remember every night
Say to me I might when I won't!




3. Cheeky Monkey:

My name is Jason, I'll rock your face in, 'cause I've got relations in my band
We like Van Halen and Iron Maiden, I'll do the talking understand?

Cheeky monkey! Cheeky monkey!

Yeah, you know I right, do you want a fight?
Stay up all night, if you've got the time
Any time I want to, Any place I'll need to
I'll be there, yeah I'll be all right
So get out of the kitchen, check out my pigeon
Fed-ex the masses, on my way
Jump on a rock bus, no one can stop us
We're going bonkers today

Cheeky monkey! Cheeky monkey!

Yeah, you know I right, do you want a fight?
Stay up all night, cos we've got the time
And any time I want to, Any place I need to
I'll need to be there, yeah I'll be all right?

We're cheeky monkeys, just like the Bee Gees
We put our words down so they rhyme
We rock in the summer, sleep in the winter
Park where we want to and pay the fine

Cheeky monkey! Cheeky monkey!

Yeah, you know I right, do you want a fight?
Stay up all night, if you've got the time
Any time I want to, Any place I'll need to
I'll be there, yeah I'll be all right?

Cheeky monkey! Cheeky monkey!
Cheeky monkey! Cheeky monkey!
Cheeky!




4. No 1:

I've got to get up ma, and get in my place
I've got to work out ma, and sort out my face
I've got all 'zines telling me what to eat
And I'm tired of being told what to wear on my feet
And I don't have the time to get all worked up about the year on the street

And it's not my fault, I can find my way, yeah it's not my fault
There goes another day, I've been here too long
Do I have to change into what it takes, yeah make it No.1

I feel out of flavour, I don't look like a picture
You think I'm a loser, but I can see through you
You're running around like you're running the country
I know that you think that you've got one on me
Ear to the ground like a boy about town
Can't get nothing to fit me!

And it's not my fault, I can find my way, yeah it's not my fault
There goes another day, I've been here too long
Do I have to change in to what it takes, yeah make it No.1

Got to call for an old friend who used to be real close
Said he couldn't go on the American way
Sold his house, sold his car
Bought a ticket to the West coast
Now he gives him 'em a stand-up routine in L.A.

yeah but it's not my fault, I can find my way, yeah it's not my fault
Got to look out for an old friend who used to be real close
Said it couldn't go on the American way
Sold his house, sold his car
Bought a ticket to the West coast
Now he gives 'em a stand-up routine in L.A.
Do I have to change in to what it takes, yeah make it No.1




5. Bad Idea:

Bad idea, bad idea, bad idea!
Bad idea, bad idea, bad idea!

99% is great, the other 1% I hate
Little things keep bugging at my head

Wake up calls Bad idea!
Smack and that Bad idea!
Fashion cafe Bad idea!
Friendly fire, GMTV
Darker mornings Bad idea!
And pay per view Bad idea!
Litter dropping Bad idea!
I made a list, I've got the lot, and all the stuff is all I'm taught
It's not fair, but I don't care not me

Rocky 5 Bad idea!
And indie shite Bad idea!
KKK Bad idea!
Number crunching, bungy jumping
Paying taxes Bad idea!
And Pavement cracks Bad idea!
Car alarms Bad idea!
Dinosaurs and protest songs are a bad idea!

Give me and B-A-D-I-D-E-AAAAAA
Bad idea!




6. Singalong:

Everybody in the building has to sing the song
All the boys and all the girlfriends sing the sing-a-long

I think I'm trouble, there's always a couple
Around me wherever I go
They're out there to bug me
I don't think it's funny
Everybody's laughing at me yeah

I wanna go out, but there's no one about
All my friends want a quiet one at home
They're that same age as me
And their husbands to be yeah
Everybody in the building

Everybody in the building has to sing the song
All the boys and all the girlfriends sing the sing-a-long

I make a move here, and I make a move there
I've got millions of things on the go
I'll write me the best lines, they're too corny sometimes
Everybody's laughing at me

Everybody in the building has to sing the song
All the boys and all the girlfriends sing the sing-a-long
Everybody in the building has to sing the song
All the boys and all the girlfriends sing the sing-a-long

And now when I find her, there's rings on her finger
I'll try every trick in the book
And I've got some more pride, I've got time on my side
Everybody's gone without me yeah

Everybody in the building has to sing the song
All the boys and all the girlfriends sing the sing-a-long
Everybody in the building has to sing the song
All the boys and all the girlfriends sing the sing-a-long




7. Winter Of '96:

First stepped out of the aeroplane
I'd felt like I'd been here before
Took a ?? me down
Put a smile on my face
Felt like I could do more

How ace are buildings!
How big are the blocks
Reminds me of London, stuck in a graveyard

Six foot deep, bleaker street, no one lives out
People smile, never got the time
I look down I can not see the ground
A man who reads the news says there's no crime
There's no one around
There wasn't a sound
There's no one to arrest today
??

Fell in love with it, don't want to leave it
Don't ever what to go back
Skateboards are cheaper, don't want it bigger
Whole place stops for the winter of '96

-10, 1pm east village time
I laugh at your ?? you bought
Snow, snow, so we walk 70 blocks
On days like this nothing seems to far
Get in shot, I don't ask a lot
The weather was frozen, there wasn't a ??

Fell in love with it, don't want to leave it
Don't ever what to go back
Skateboards are cheaper, don't want it bigger
Whole place stops for the winter of '96

Maybe I could be here a long time
Much longer than I planned to stay
No telling when they'll get the airport open
No telling when i'll get way
Trying to tell us nothing's wrong
Trying to get the fire back on
Never lost a day of fun
Silence in the heightened mass of ??

How ace are buildings!
How big are the blocks
Reminds me of London, stuck in a gridlock




8. Out Of Tune:

You're always fighting everyone
You were wroung when you were young
You love to think you're on the run

I had to laugh at all your jokes
Had to tremble 'cos you smoked
But you never ever get my vote, yeah!

You're the ones to run from, or so they say
I remember you back in the day
Did my best to keep out of the way
You kicked it up in school
Singing out of tune

While you're fighting everyone
I've been hanging in the sun
There's a million things I've done

You're the one who took the lead
Me least likely to succeed
Different now don't you agree

You're the ones to run from, or so they say
I remember you back in the day
Did my best to keep out of the way
You kicked it up in school
Singing out of tune
Thought you ruled the world
Singing out of tune

Everybody, keep out of his way
Everybody, keep out of his way
Everybody, keep out of his way
Everybody, keep out of his way

You're the ones to run from, or so they say
I remember you back in the day
Did my best to keep out of the way
You kicked it up in school
Singing out of tune
Everybody knew
Singing out of tune

Singing out of tune (a lot!)




9. Fistral:

I like the summer like you like your wife
Live in the "master" for the rest of my life
Every year since I was young
And always here and always fun
Distant places, staying faces
All I want, I understand is it's the summer

Over and over it's summer again
Fills up the sad hole in my head again
Several hours and passing faster
To lift their head down to the sand
Distant places, staying faces
All I want, I understand is it's the summer

And it's with it's flowers, and big huge skies
It gets high for hours, and then it dies

Ocean keeps me up all night
Sunshine makes my hair turn white
You know I hate the winter time
All because there's nothing quite like the summer

And it's with it's flowers, and breeses off shore
It gets high for hours, and then back for more

And it's with it's showers, and big big skies
It gets high for hours, and then it dies




10. House Under The Ground:

And I'd have a house under the ground
All my friends would all come round
Laugh about the ones that got away
I wouldn't know the time of year
It's easier to tan down here

I find it funny, I laugh at people
And don't know why
I sometimes giggle, if there's an earthquake
Where good people die

And I'd have a house under the ground
All my friends would all come round
Laugh about the ones that got away
I wouldn't know the time of year
It's easier to tan down here

I'll make the big man, I'll do what I can
I'll suffer for my sins
Speak with a deep voice, listen to metal
So that the good guys never win

And I'd have a house under the ground
All my friends would all come round
Laugh about the ones that got away
I wouldn't know the time of year
It's easier to tan down here

Yeah you should see them all
When you sit in on Christmas day
But at six o' clock, on the sixth of June is OK
Got my life under the sun, pay for the things I've done
Pay for my mistakes

And I'd have a house under the ground
All my friends would all come round
Laugh about the ones that got away
I wouldn't know the time of year
It's easier to tan down here

House under the ground
House under the ground
House under the ground

And I'd have a house under the ground
All my friends would all come round
Laugh about the ones that got away
I wouldn't know the time of year
It's easier to tan down here




11. Five In The Morning:

Yeah yeah yeah I've seen it all
Yeah yeah yeah I've heard it all
J.P wants to rock, not at five o'clock hes not
There's a medal in the kitchen for catching early worms
Yeah yeah yeah you're gonna bet
Yeah yeah you're gonna learn

Don't bother waking me at 5 in the morning
'Cause I don't want to know
Don't bother waking me at 5 in the morning
'Cause I don't want to know

Stevie knows that it ain't dead
Yeah Farmer uncle still in bed
M.A.C. was born to rock, there's not a moment that he's not
"A" communication, illin' in my sleep
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah I lost count of my sheep

Don't bother waking me at 5 in the morning
'Cause I don't want to know
Don't bother waking me at 5 in the morning
'Cause I don't want to know

Never, never looking back, never falling off the track
Never clocking late for work, 'cause rocking pays the bills
So I don't need no education
I don't need any sleep
yeah yeah yeah yeah I never need to set my "series 3"

Don't bother waking me at 5 in the morning
'Cause I don't want to know
Don't bother waking me at 5 in the morning
'Cause I don't want to know
Don't bother waking me at 5 in the morning
'Cause I don't want to know
Don't bother waking me at 5 in the morning
'Cause I don't want to know




12. Ender:

Thanks a bunch for staying with us tonight
Over lunch, we'll talk about the lights

I need to go now, I need to drive round

Thanks i'm stunned it's time to go
