HELL FOR LEATHER IN MY SCHEME OF THINGS TONIGHT

REPEAT CHORUS

.

GENERALS

BIG CITY ALL SCRATCHED OUT,REVENG IS NOT SO SWEET

ONCE PROUD ONCE SO DEVOUT THEY'RE TIRED AND THEY ARE WEAK

THEY CAME FROM EAST TO WEST,COUNTING UP THE COST

RED STAR SOON TO ARRIVE,THEY KNOW THAT ALL IS LOST

(CHORUS :)

AND ONLY THE WOUNDED REMAIN

THE GENERALS HAVE ALL LEFT THE GAME

WITH NO WILL TO FIGHT

THEY'LL FADE WITH THE LIGHT

THERE'S NOBODY LEFT THEY CAN BLAME

WHAT ONCE WAS DECADENCE,NOW'S NOTHING BUT RAIZED LAND

THE END SO IMMINENT,BIG CITY'S NOT SO GRAND

THEY CAME THEY SAW THEY CONQUERED ,PEOPLE HID IN FEAR

THEY LOOTD,RAPED AND PLUNDERED ANGRY RUSSIANS BARE

(REPEAT CHORUS)

REICHSTAG,FLIES RED FLAG,SIGNALLING THE END

PARTY NOW BAD BAD,SUICIDE THE END

THERE'S SOME WHO THINK THAT GOLDEN YEARS MIGHT LIE AHEAD

NO LEADERS ANYMORE,IN THE BUNKER ,DEAD

(REPEAT CHORUS , THEN :)

AND ONLY THE WOUNDED REMAIN

THE GENERALS HAVE ALL LEFT THE GAME

WITH NO WILL TO FIGHT

THEY'LL FADE WITH THE LIGHT

THE WHOLE WORLD IS GOING INSANE

STRANGER ON THE TOWN

DID YOU EVER SEE A MAN TURNED INSIDE OUT

HE CAN COME AND GO WITHOUT A SOUND

THEY SAY OK WHEN THEY TURN YOU DOWN

'COS SOMEONES ALWAYS SMILING WHEN THEY REALLY FROWN

CHORUS

YOU TURF ME OUT CAN'T KEEP ME DOWN

'COS I'M A STRANGER ON THE TOWN

DON'T PUT ME DOWN

AND I ONLY WANT A PLACE TO REST MY HEAD

BUT IF LOKS COULD KILL I MIGHT AS WELL BE DEAD

GET ME ON MY FEET,TAKE ME TO THE DOOR

I'LL FACE THE LAW MIGHT EVEN GET A BED

REPEAT CHORUS TWICE

DON'T NEED ME,WON'T FEED ME NOW

JUST SAY THE WORD,JUST SMILE AS I'M THROWN OUT

REPEAT CHORUS

AND THE CITY'S NEW,SO THE FACES CHANGE

I KNOW THEY'RE DIFFERENT YET THEY ACT THE SAME

I'VE READ THE SCRIPT,AND I KNOW THE SCORE

I KNOW IT'S ONLY TIME BEFORE I'M SHOWN THE DOOR

REPEAT CHORUS TWICE

I'VE GOT SOME MONEY,SO DO YOU LOVE ME NOW ?

NOW WILL YOU RUN ME OUT,AND THEY WONDER WHY I SHOUT

EVEN IN A CROWD WHEN YOU'RE ALL ALONE

IT'S SO FAR FROM HOME THERE'S FACES ALL AROUND

THEY STARE MEAN AND PROUD,YOU'VE GOTTA GET AWAY

YOU GOTTA GET AWAY

SO I'M A STRANGER,AND THOUGH YOU PUT ME DOWN YOU KNOW I

AINT NO CLOWN,AND I'M A STRANGER

AND I SEE YOU AROUND WITH THE JET SET CROWD

AND I'M A STRANGER ON THE TOWN....

OOH OOH THE CITY'S NEW,THE FACES CHANGE

I KNOW THEY'RE DIFFERENT YETTHEY ACT THE SAME

'COS I'M A STRANGER ON THE TOWN

AND I ONLY WANNA PLACE TO REST MY HEAD

IF LOOKS COULD KILL I MIGHT AS WELL BE DEAD

'COS I'M A STRANGER ON THE TOWN,YES I AM

AND EVERYONE TRIES TO PUT YOU DOWN

NOBODY WANTS TO HAVE YOU AROUND

'COS I'M A STRANGER ON THE TOWN....YES I AM

DOZEN GIRLS

WON'T YOU TELL ME THE REASON WHY

HE GOES OUT , ALMOST EVERY NIGHT?

HE NEVER GOES TOO FAR,HE'S ALWAYS

THE ONE WHO'S GOT IT RIGHT

CHORUS

HE'S GOT CHARM

HE'S GOT STYLE

HE'S GOT A DOZEN GIRLS

TELL ME WHY,I DON'T KNOW WHY

HE'S GOT A DOZEN GIRLS

NOW HE'S ALWAYS THE ONE WITH ALL THE HOOKS

WHEN IT COMES TO MAKING IT WITH YOU

NOW I WOULD BE THERE IN HIS PLACE IF ONLY

I KNEW WHAT IT IS I HAD TO DO

REPEAT CHORUS TWICE

HE'S ALRIGHT AND HE DONT CARE,HE' S GOT THERMAL UNDERWEAR (REPEAT SEVERAL TIMES)

.

THE DOG

SHE WANDERS ALONE THROUGH THE NIGHT

A CHILD WITH EYES BURNING BRIGHT

SHE EXTENDS HER ARMS FOR AN EMBRACE A TINY SMILE

HER RUBY LIPS ON HER DOLL- LIKE FACE

THE DANGER'S A MYSTERY HERE

AS SHE INVITES YOU TO HOLD HER NEAR

HER MIRRORED IMAGE COULD NOT BE LINKED TO

A WOMAN'S MIND,SO SHARP AND SO DISTINCT

LIKE A SWIMMER IN A SECRET SEA

UNDECAYED FOR ALL ETERNITY

CLAUDIA,BETTER STAY AWAY FROM CLAUDIA

THE SILKINESS OF HER LIPS

AS SHE BENDS LOW TO KISS

A TINY SEDUCTRESS IN RINGLETS AND PEARLS YOU REEL

IN MADNESS AS THE WHOLE WORLD ABOUT YOU WHIRLS

LIKE THE TINKLE OF A SMALL SILVER BELL

HER VOICE WILL PUT YOU UNDER HER SPELL

A CRUSHED CRYSANTHEMUM IN HER HAND A BEAUTIFUL DOLL OF DEATH

SHE'LL TAKE YOUR DYING BREATH

REPEAT CHORUS TWICE

.

GUN FURY

I DO EXPECT YOU MIGHT HAVE HEARD

THROUGH STATE RESEARCH,AN OLD JAILBIRD

ABOUT THE GUYS,THE GUN FURY RIOT FORCES

A WARNING SOUNDS,THEY'RE DRESSED TO KILL

THEY'RE OUT OF BOUNDS,WE'VE HAD OUR FILL

WHO DARES RESIST THE GUN FURY RIOT FORCES

CHORUS :

THEY'RE GLAD TO BE YOUR FRIEND

THEY HATE THE PUBLIC THEY DEFEND

THEY CALL THE SHOTS FROM START TO END

SHOTS FROM START TO END

A HANDBAG MAN,HE MAKES A SNATCH

IN RIOT COPS,HE'S MET HIS MATCH

HE LIES DEAD BEFORE,THE GUN FURY RIOT FORCES

A WARNING SOUNDS,THEY'RE DRESSED TO KILL

THEY'RE OUT OF BOUNDS,WE'VE HAD OUR FILL

WHO DARES RESIST THE GUN FURY RIOT FORCES ?

THEY'RE GLAD TO BE YOUR FRIEND

THEY HATE THE PUBLIC THEY DEFEND

THEY CALL THE SHOTS FROM START TO END

.

PLEASURE AND THE PAIN

THESE FEELINGS LOCKED INSIDE MY HEAD

I TRY TO REASON OUT OF BED

THESE FEELINGS LOCKED INSIDE OF ME

WILL NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY

SLOWLY UPWARDS FASTER DOWN

REACH THE TOP AND HIT THE GROUND

SO MANY THINGS WE LEFT UNSAID

SO MANY FEELINGS LEFT FOR DEAD

A LOVE AFFAIR LIKE THIS COULD LAST

I TAKE A TRIP BACK THROUGH THE PAST

IT TEARS MY HEART OUT DEEP INSIDE

TO THINK OF TIMES I SPENT INSIDE

CHORUS :

THE PLEASURE AND THE PAIN

IT TELLS ME THAT I'M IN LOVE AGAIN

THE PLEASURE AND THE PAIN

TAKE A LOOK DEEP IN MY EYES

SEE THE EMPTINESS INSIDE

SEE WHERE FOREST FIRES RAGE

IN VAIN I TRY TO TURN THE PAGE

BUT NOTHING THAT I SAY OR DO

WILL EVER MAKE ME FORGET YOU

REPEAT CHORUS 3 TIMES

.

LIFE GOES ON

LIFE GOES ON AND ON AND ON

IF YOU THINK IT'S AL GONE WRONG

GO ON AND ON AND ON

LIFE'S A CON A CON A CON

IF YOU THINK YOU CAN'T GO ON

GO ON AND ON AND ON

CHORUS :

BUT ALWAYS REMEMBER,

THIS IS THE HAPPIEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE

( REPEAT FIRST VERSE,THEN : )

AND AS THE YEARS THEY MOVE ALONG

I SEE IT NOW,THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG

'COS LIFE IS FOR ALWAYS

TAKE YOUR TIME

WHO CARES WHAT FOOLS SAY

I DON'T MIND

'COS THIS IS MY DAY

I'LL LIVE IT MY WAY

TODAY,THERE'S JUST TODAY

REPEAT FIRST VERSE

.

UNDER THE FLOOR AGAIN

UNDER THE FLOOR AGAIN

ONCE I WAS UP AND IN THE AIR BUT NOW I'M DOWN

GOODBYE TO ALL MY FRIENDS

FORGET I EVER WAS,THE MOLE GOES UNDERGROUND

UNDER THE FLOOR AGAIN

EIGHT YEARS OF HIDE AND SEEK NO PEEK OF ME IS SEEN

I SKIP THE LAW AGAIN

THE TO AND FRO THE COME AND GO AND MISS THE SCENE

BUT WHO WAS THE GIRL WE SAW LAST NIGHT

WEARING A FROCK AND GOWN SHE'S KINDA PARALYSED

A DOOR IN THE FLOR A HEAD MATERIALISED

I'M SURE THAT I SAW A FACE I RECOGNI-I-I-ISED

DON'T SAY A WORD

JUST STAY HERE AT MY LEISURE

NO SOUND IS HEARD

CAN'T TAKE MY SIMPLE PLEASURES

LIKE WALKING IN THE PARK

AND TAKING IN THE AIR

JUST LOCK ME IN THE DARK

IT'S NO FUN

UNDER THE FLOOR AGAIN

MY BACCY,BETS,AND BEER ARE HERE AND ALL I NEED

I'M FEELING SORE AGAIN

THREE FEET OF LIFE IS ALL I HAVE AND RATS TO FEED

WON'T SAY A WORD

JUST STAY HERE AT MY LEISURE

NO SOUND IS HEARD

CAN'T TAKE MY SIMPLE PLEASURES

LIKE BREATHING IN THE AIR

IT'S CLEANER THAN THE STUFF I'VE HAD

IN RECENT MONTHS

IT'S NO FUN

UNDER THE FLOOR AGAIN

ONCE I WAS UP AND IN THE AIR BUT NOW I'M DOWN

.

DON'T BOTHER ME

I SAY HELLO DON'T THINK THAT I DON'T KNOW YOU'RE LISTENING TO ME

BUT PLEASE DON'T BOTHER ME,

DON'T BOTHER ME

YOU BOUGHT THIS THING SO I WOULD SING ABOUT THAT AWFUL NUCLEAR THING

I HOPE WON'T BOTHER ME

WON'T BOTHER ME

YOUR ROLLING STONES AND POP STAR CLONES DON'T EVEN WANT TO HEAR THEIR MOANS

I SAY DON'T BOTHER ME

DON'T BOTHER ME

THOSE MEN OF STEEL I REALLY FEEL ARE QUITE EXTREMELY UNREAL

I WISH THEY'D ALL JUST FADE AWAY

SO HERE AM I UNDER THE SKY CAN I ASK YOU

WITHOUT A LIE TO PLEASE DON'T BOTHER ME

DON'T BOTHER ME

I'M IN A HOLE JUST LIKE A MOLE

DON'T GIVE A TOSS,LADY IN HER MINK STOLE

DON'T BOTHER ME

DON'T BOTHER ME

THE PEOPLE CHANGE THEY REARRANGE BUT STAY THE SAME

IT'S AWFULLY STRANGE

BUT THEY DON'T BOTHER ME

DON'T BOTHER ME

UNTIL THE DAY THEIR TROUBLES STRAY ON TO MY PATCH

LIKE TONY HATCH'S 'CROSSROADS' THEME

PLEASE GO AWAY

GO AWAY
