1939 RETURNING (BBC LIVE)

Well I was wondering
Do as I choose
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, naked, naked, naked,
naked, naked, naked, naked

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


CHICKEN VS. MACHO (FEATURING MARY HOPKIN)

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


THAT'S FOR SURE

If I had my choice of evil ways
I'd do it all night and I'd do it all god-damn day
If I had a bed in which to lay
I'd lay all night and I'd lay all god-damn day

In the forest
Lives a monster
It's hard to find but
When you get there
Touch it with your toungue
And you will be the one
Touch it with your toungue
And you wil be the one

It's over baby that's for sure
It all got hard and i'm not ready
It's over baby that's for sure
It all got hard and i'm not ready
It's over baby

When my coochee won't come out to play
I cry all night and I cry all god-damn day
When she tells me death's the only way
I die all night and I die all goddamn day

In the forest
Lives a monster
It's hard to find but
When you get there
Touch it with your toungue
And you will be the one
Touch it with your toungue
And you will be the one

It's over baby that's for sure
It all got hard when i'm not ready
It's over baby that's for sure
It all got hard and i'm not ready
It's over baby

It's over baby that's for sure
It all got hard and i'm not ready
It's over baby that's for sure
It all got hard and i'm not ready
It's over baby that's for sure
It all got hard and i'm not ready
It's over baby that's for sure
It all got hard and i'm not ready

It's over baby that's for sure
Well it all got hard and i'm not ready
It's over baby that's for sure
Well it all got hard and i'm not ready...


THREE IN A BED

There was two in the bed, and Tony Blair said
Suck on this Mr Hague, suck on this Mr Hague

There was two in the bed, and the Queen said
Wrong hole Charles, wrong hole Charles

There was three in the bed and Bill Clinton said
One testicle for you Chelsea, one testicle for you Hillary

There was one in the bed and Jesus said
Another night out and I just couldn't pull
Luckily the stable was full
I performed the miracle with a sheep
Turned it into Meryl Streep
Shoulda heard the woman bleet
Maaa harder Jesus
Baaa harder Jesus
Baaa harder Jesus
Fuck my wrinkly
Baaa starfish harder
Maaa maaa baaa Jesus
Maaaaaaaaaa
