The Great Bootleg Rarities

A bootleg collection of various rare crocketts tracks, promos, acoustic performances and a radio interview, all of which was put together and distributed between Crocketts fans. Notes: It says "Oozy Bozone" on the tape inlay, it's actually a spelling mistake and should be "Dozy Bozone". The prozac version of Lucifer is just a slow acoustic version. Time Of My Life was due to be the b-side for On Something before someone at V2 heard and rejected it.

ACOUSTIC SUITE, OCT. 99

On Something

Only one of us lucky enough
To be collapsed in the corner looking down from up above
Just the kid with the juttering jaw
And the billion million stunners that he swore that he saw
Just the one of us crazy enough
to rejoice in having the blunt blade of a lacerating lawnmower
ruthlessly rotate inside of his jelly and ice-cream head

He must be, He's gotta be
He must be, He's gotta be
He must be, He's gotta be
He must be, He's gotta be
On something, On something, On something
He must be, He's gotta be
On something, On something, On something
He must be, He's gotta be

Only one of us loves the black night
Keeps his curtains shut throughout the stupid daylight
Just the kid with the long end of the stick
Impersonating popeye for the whole worlds benefit
Just the one of us crazy enough
to rejoice in having the blunt blade of a lacerating lawnmower
ruthlessly rotate inside his jelly and ice-cream head

He must be, He's gotta be
He must be, He's gotta be
He must be, He's gotta be
He must be, He's gotta be
On something, On something, On something
He must be, He's gotta be
On something, On something, On something
He must be, He's gotta be

Only one of us on something
Only one of us on something
Only one of us on something
Only one of us on something
He must be, He's gotta be
He must be, He's gotta be
He must be, He's gotta be
On something
He must be, He's gotta be
He must be, He's gotta be
He must be, He's gotta be
On something


Beauty and the Beast

Took her out on a Saturday,
we went down to the flix
but she kept getting smart with me
coz I laughed at all the soppy bits.
I wanted to give her a good time,
get her locked in the city
but I puked up over her pretty face
and then she wouldn't kiss me.

I want my tongue between your teeth
I do, I do, I do, I do, I...
I want to trespass on your heath
I do, I do, I do, I do, I...
I am the Beauty and the Beast
I do, I do, I do, I do, I...
I'm a monstrosity.

Said she wanted chocolates,
diamonds and romance.
Said she wanted Paris
but I refused to go to France.
Now I'm just a monstrosity
who dribbles in his sleep,
I hang out on the back streets
with all the other dead beats.

I want my tongue between your teeth
I do, I do, I do, I do, I...
I want to trespass on your heath
I do, I do, I do, I do, I...
I am the Beauty and the Beast
I do, I do, I do, I do, I...
I'm a monstrosity.

I want my tongue between your teeth
I do, I do, I do, I do, I...
I want to trespass on your heath
I do, I do, I do, I do, I...
I am the Beauty and the Beast
I do, I do, I do, I do, I...
I'm a monstrosity.


Chicken vs. Macho

Got myself black and blue banging my head off a brick wall
And what'm I gonna do throw in the towel and crawl
Well flaming hot blood is just an excuse for a war
Got myself black and blue but I'm still desperate for more
No aggro, no aggro, no aggro

I'd rather be chicken than macho
I'd rather be oblivious than know how

Got myself black and blue dragging my fists from cheek to cheek
I'm a hostile creep harmonies not up my street
Flaming hot blood is just an excuse for a war
Got myself black and blue but i'm still desperate for more
No aggro, no aggro, no aggro

I'd rather be chicken than macho
I'd rather be oblivious than know how
Than know how

No aggro, no aggro, no aggro

I'd rather be chicken than macho
I'd rather be oblivious than know how
I'd rather be chicken than macho
I'd rather be oblvious than know how
Than know how
Than know how
Than know how
Than know how


1939 Returning

Well I was wondering
Do as I please
Or follow the ancient
chip off the block
Well I was thinking
I'll wear a rose
and in the morning
I'll be your dog

President of presidents the killer's here to take your life
We are not learning
1939 returning
We are not learning
1939 returning

If bricks were circular
The wind would come in
And we would all freeze
but I would be laughing
Humans or animals
we do as we please
Control is the currency
the vultures disease

President of presidents the killer's here to take your life
We are not learning
1939 returning
We are not learning
1939 returning

Naked solo renegade
The bodies of other animals will be my grave
No words, conscience, clothes or name
flesh in the natural chain

We are not learning
1939 returning
We are not learning
1939 returning
We are not learning
1939 returning
We are not learning
1939 returning


XFM EXCLUSIVE 11/00

Lucifer (Prozac Version)

She was the last to leave the motorcar
She walked so tall and straight that I
we held peace talks in a cafe
before I opened up my mouth she strolled away and I said

Just because you phone me you think you fucking own me
Just because you've blown me think you fucking own me
Let me tell you something about the working of my head
I left to be a loser when the woman said
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer

I guess you could say this it's the end of this beautiful story of ours
I'm on the avenue
I'm in the stars
But soon I will be gone
My fingers sink down into the sand
I said

Just because you phone me think you fucking own me
Just because you've blown me think you fucking own me
Let me tell you something about the working of my head
I left to be a loser when the woman said
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer

Let me tell you something about the working of my head
I left to be a loser when the woman said
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go Lucifer
Go go go go go,
Go go go go go,
Go go go go go,
Go go go go go Lucifer


THE BANNED B SIDE

Time of My Life

Well I
Had
The time of my life
No, I've never felt this way before
Yes I swear It's the truth And I owe it all to you.

I've been waiting for so long and now I've finally found someone to stand by me
Saw the writing on the wall and I just could not resist the fantasy
Now I look into her eyes and there's nowhere I disguise she see's through me
As we take each others hands we try to understand the urgency
Just remember

There's only one thing that I can't get at all
So I tell you something, this could be love
Baby

I had the time of my life
And it never felt this way before
Yes I swear, it's the truth
And I owe it all to you.

Well I saw her big baloomas and I just wanted my wiener between them
Yeah I saw her big baloomas and I just wanted my wiener between them
Just remember

There's only one thing that I can't get at all
So I tell you something, this could be love
Baby

I had the time of my life
And it never felt this way before
Yes I swear, it's the truth
And I owe it all to you.

I've
Had
The time of my life
No I've never felt this way before
Yes I swear
It's the truth
And I owe it all to you.
Baby

I had the time of my life
And I never felt this way before
Yes I swear it's true
And I owe it all to you.

I've had the time of my life
And it never felt this way before
Yes I swear it's true
And I owe it all to you.


THE ABERYSTWYTH TAPES, 1996

Mrs. Donnely

Mrs Donnelly has seven children
out in the backyard
she beats them three times a day
lets them in if it rains
their faces are white
and their knees cut up on the concrete
she smokes cigarettes all day
then
she says

You know that
I once was
young and pretty
I used to
go down town
and dance on saturday nights but
now I've lost my dignity and grace
now I'm just a wife
who sings
ba-da-ba-da-ba-da-bam-bam
bam-bam-ba-bam-ba-da-ba-dam
ba-da-ba-da-ba-da-bam-bam
bam-bam-bam-ba-ba-da-ba-da-bam

Sometimes when she's sweeping the floor
she thinks the brush is a microphone
she dances Marrilyn style
around the kitchen
she goes upstairs gets into an old dress that don't fit
she stands infront of the mirror
then
she says

you know that
I once was
young and pretty
I used to
go down town
and dance on saturday nights but
now I've lost my dignity and grace
now I'm just a wife
who sings
ba-da-ba-da-ba-da-bam-bam
bam-bam-ba-bam-ba-da-ba-dam
ba-da-ba-da-ba-da-bam-bam
bam-bam-bam-ba-ba-da-ba-da-bam


EARLY STUDIO DEMOS

Wednesdays in My Bed

A packet of digestives
and a tub of chocolate spread
is what I like on Wednesdays
when I'm lying in my bed.
I should really get up
and scrub myself to death
but I am happy dirty
on Wednesdays in my bed.

You say summer sunshine
would really help my head
but I am happy lying here
on Wednesdays in my,
Wednesdays in my, Wednesdays in my,
Wednesdays in my bed.
Wednesdays in my, Wednesdays in my,
Wednesdays in my bed.

You wake me up
wake me, wake me up
but I stay in
I stay in, I stay in
You say get up
get up, get up
but I say
I am happy here, I am happy here on
Wednesdays in my, Wednesdays in my,
Wednesdays in my bed.
Wednesdays in my, Wednesdays in my,
Wednesdays in my bed.

I strive to see this lady
lying by my side
It's my old mate Suzy
with the funny fuzzy hair.
She says I'm so sorry
I was drunk and so were you.
I say don't worry honeybunch
I've had worse than you.

You say summer sunshine
would really help my head
but I am happy lying here
on Wednesdays in my,
Wednesdays in my, Wednesdays in my,
Wednesdays in my bed.
Wednesdays in my, Wednesdays in my,
Wednesdays in my bed.

You wake me up
wake me, wake me up
but I stay in
I stay in, I stay in
You say get up
get up, get up
but I say
I am happy here, I am happy here on
Wednesdays in my, Wednesdays in my,
Wednesdays in my bed.
Wednesdays in my, Wednesdays in my,
Wednesdays in my bed.


Insect Man

Started life as a magot
living on a piece of meat
didn't take long before something went wrong
they're standing on his sweet six feet.
Well prepared with delta wings
skin turned hairy and black
lived a diet of gaga shit
and the little bugger never got back

Better watch your ass, insect man
Na na na na
cos now I'm onto your plan
Na na na na
and with the swatter in my hand
I'll block it on the wall

Spent some time in the classroom
clinging to a scaby wall
his (?) education
was from the third world war
He entered his evil ways
as he flys around the night sky
(?)
his backside has a million eyes

Better watch your ass, insect man
Na na na na
cos now I'm onto your plan
Na na na na
and with the swatter in my hand
I'll block it on the wall

Better watch your ass, insect man
Na na na na
cos now I'm onto your plan
Na na na na
and with the swatter in my hand
I'll block it on the wall


?? (don't know the title, but a good song)

Here's a little song about a rich girl
cos we love rich girls.

With a real posh accent
and her dead fancy clothes
she totally degraded me
and i didn't know what to know.
So i just stood there
standing
I didn't know what to say
and she jumped right into her daddy's big car
and he wisked her off and away.

Well she spoke
as if
everything she ever wanted
as if everything
she ever wanted
had gone into her pocket.
She did
she said
she did whatever her daddy said.
She did
she said
she did whatever her daddy said.

So when I got home
I called her up on the telephone
I said hey honeybunch i'm tired
of stuck up snobby little rich kids
because they hang around with your friends
and your cosy upper class
Can stick your dirty money
in your Swiss bank account.

Well she spoke
as if
everything she ever wanted
as if everything
she ever wanted
had gone into her pocket.
She did
she said
She did whatever her daddy said.
she said
she did
she did whatever her daddy said.

Uh huh thats right.


Tennessee

There's a man and he stands on top of a hill
and his head is high and his eyes are still
he says don't you know what I want you to see
I was born on a mountain in Tennessee
I killed my first bear when I was only 3
I was born on a mountain in Tennessee.

And he say's so
so you go so slow now.
You hit me with your stupid little smile.

You hit me with your hazel eyes
and I step back cos I don't know
You hit me with your hazel eyes
and I said I would like you to know
and you hit me with your hazel eyes
and I step back cos I don't know
and you hit me with your hazel eyes
and I said I would like you to know that
I'd like you to know that

I'm a man and I stand on the top of a hill
My head is high, my eyes are still
he said don't you know what I want you to see
I was born on a mountain in Tennessee
I killed my first bear when I was only 3
I was born on a mountain in Tennessee.


Bluster Boy

The bluster boy is alone
dangled from the streetlight just outside the school
so in the morning they'll know what they've done
but they'll see the rip in the crotch of his trousers
they'll see his belly hang out like marzipan
and they will laugh, they don't understand
only the next fattest plods down his gallow walk
mars bar in hand.
Mars Bar in hand.
Mars Bar in hand.

And his sister sits up all night
and waits for the radio to answer details
of the morning traffic and then she can sleep
and then she can sleep.
Old mr mars bar he plays Nintendo,
watches the world as it laughs and it jokes
and they said you are fat, you are mis-shapen
and now he is gone, now he is taken.

They said you're fat,
you're mis-shapen
and now he's gone,
now he's taken.
They said you're fat,
you're mis-shapen
and now he's gone,
and now he's taken.

The bluster boy is alone
dangled from the streetlight just outside the school
so in the morning they'll know what they've done
they'll see the rip in the crotch of his trousers
they'll see his belly hang out like marzipan
and they will laugh, they don't understand
only the next fattest plods down his gallow walk
mars bar in hand.


Bucket and Spade

So she walked up to me
she said I'm sick and tired
of your washed out
trussed up, feverish fantasies
written on my desk.
I said look here sweetie pie,
I would like you to accept my regrets.

She said I've known you since the first grade
you once lost my bucket and spade
and first my mother made a speech
and then your mother made a speech
and ever since then we were not allowed to play together on the beach.

So she walked up to me
she said I'd like you to know
that I'm going out
with the captain of the school rugby team.
I said I may be skinny and wirey
but I could tell you the square root of every letter in the alphabet.

She said I've known you since the first grade
you once lost my bucket and spade
and first my mother made a speech
and then your mother made a speech
and ever since then we were not allowed to play together on the beach.

She said I don't like country boys
I don't like your red hair
I don't appreciate honky tonk
I don't like your sollun stare
You got my bucket and spade
You got my bucket and spade.


School Girls

Me and Billy were the last to know
and we never even realised
we had
dollar signs in our eyes.
Me and billy had long shirts
they came right down to our knees
We knew
every thing about cheese.

I said
Bus stop
arse on the floor.
School girls and I wish they were older.
We walk around with our mouths wide open
but our eyes glued to the school girls.

Me and Billy were the frilly ones
we put champagne in our beer
We had
big red sticky out ears and
me and billy had short blazers
that our brothers had owned for years.
We had
big red sticky out ears.

I said
Bus stop
arse on the floor.
School girls and I wish they were older.
We walk around with our mouths wide open
but our eyes glued to the school girls.

Me and Billy had short trousers
that our brothers had owned for years
and we had
big red sticky out ears.

We always hung around at the
bus stop
arse on the floor.
School girls and I wish they were older.
We walk around with our mouths wide open
but our eyes glued to the school girls.


Autumn Afternoon

An Autumn afternoon the rain is drizzling down.
Put on his crombie coat, slicked back his hair.
Shuffled in stupor all the way to the house.
A finished funeral march and he stood at the door.
He took her by the hands, looked into her eyes and said I love you
I love you.

Like sun-light, like life itself, like misery, you could take them away
And his head went down no answer back
and he ran forever till his heart attacked
And he cryed outside some down town place
he could see no more point in living.

It's a spring day, he just sits there
watching the fresh breeze blowing in her hair.
Not nobody, not anybody could take these feelings away from me.
No beauty, no heaven bliss is better than you, is better than this.
She was a rose, she was a beautiful flower, and he loved her.

Like sun-light, like life itself, like misery, you could take them away
And his head went down no answer back
and he ran forever till his heart attacked
And he cryed outside some downtown place
he could see no more point in living
without this, no beauty sign that i know, heaven bliss.
'Cos he knew no other a God
than the pair of brown eyes of a girl he loved
and she looked at him and she started to cry
and she ran off into the deep dark night.
And he thought about it all and he picked up the knife,
he could see no more point in life.

It's an Autumn afternoon the rain is drizzling down.
A young man lies cold, dead on the ground.
She was a rose, she was a beautiful flower, and he loved her,
and he loved her.


Hogbreath

Hello i'm horny, horny, horny
Buy you a drink you'll become corny.
Hello im horny, horny, horny
Won't you tell me if your horny too.

Woke up this morning
opened my eyes and turned my head
to find you lying there yawning.
You look such a treat but you don't tase so sweet it's a shame.

Sun shines in through my window
brightens my room (?)
You leaked all over my pillow
You turn your head and with hogbreath you say

Hello i'm horny, horny, horny
Buy you a drink you'll become corny.
Hello im horny, horny, horny
Won't you tell me if your horny too.

And so on this morning
my radio plays but does nothing to break you from sleep.
I'm lying here thinking
why i'm stuck in this sty holding my nose and i'm pink.

Sun shines in through my window
brightens my room (?)
You leaked all over my pillow
You turn your head and with hogbreath you say

Hello i'm horny, horny, horny
Buy you a drink you'll become corny.
Hello im horny, horny, horny
Won't you tell me if your horny too.

I was thinking we should stop this grumble.
I was thinking we should take a little tumble.
I was wondering if you were able
I could lie you down and take you on the table.
Sit down, my love, i'll take you by the sea.
Sit down, my love, you'll get your fill of me.
