Ghostwatch 04:13
Caution Leela, there’s a spirit of lonely water I can sense something evil outside the Tardis this time He’ll be back Tripods haunt the dark in our heads Are limbs not safe, hanging outside beds? Stone tapes won’t forget what everyone is scared of Who is this that is coming? Emotions show you as you really are Back to work after happy nights… for the benefit of Mr. Pipes Keep a ghost watch and there’s just as much grand stuff She's beautiful and she likes me as a good friend. So, on refection, I am a really lucky guy What is this that’s coming next? Emotions show you what you really are Anywhere, we travel light over this world Inside out All feelings make us all people And some good and bad And then chaps, emotions show you what you really are Everywhere ghosts linger and Nimons give scares Inside me I’m scared and brave, just like you And I’ll be listening, because you’re alright Decisions show you what you really are
On Guiness’s Day the Churchill gave out oysters And they do taste ok CAMRA’s phrase, “Lager Boy,” was making us laugh Now Chock a Bloke is checking back to life I couldn’t go on but I did do “Burying a girl’s life,” the French say… If I ran all of the way home from Shunt, at night I’d get a rush of happiness They kissed, so I pretend she doesn’t exist now And punched a Tooley Street escarpment She’d said we were best friends and could confide And I do wish them all the best In time, I'll find other things to do with my life Life isn’t too tasty for me lager boys It’s all done by kindness This song was once called, “I want his job” Harrod’s music shop has had an orange sparkle bass in stock for years I’ll eat some oysters there, one birthday John Byrne’s art was in my head as I walked past that Fleet Street shop I finally bought that Lysechenko postcard The Jugged Hare, the Albert, the Seven Stars, the Bree Louise, the Churchill, the Cheshire Cheese... Their kissing scene. Inside Shunt they reign There are no good ales
On 230 from Wood Green to Leyton (tied to the mast) Nasty kid called Tricky, swearing at a nice Mum on her mobile Ra’s staring at him as he sails through London to her Like Odysseus all calm. Just think of her in your strong arms There’s always trouble ‘cos there’s something in the way. On the bus route to the dance show Past the Poor School on the Gray’s Inn Road City that we romance so And she’s standing in the chorus of the dance show As the Trojan War comes to an end And she’s warming up and stood in third position As our hero’s on the final bend It’s a laugh to know a secret you would kill to know We’re the Muses for this story And Kate Bush is good, George Bush is bad And he gets to see her dance on time You just watch them by Beau Brummel’s statue Saturday They’re a Rockette and a Myrmidon And the gaping face of jaws ajar… The sound of corsets hitting floors Heaving with lust outside your window Inside, it’s a storm inside a teacup blown away It’s a magic day Oh she’s inside of an unusual picnic (all crumbly and entertaining) We won’t go away with you, please put her down Bad situations like Rawlinson End And I’m like, “their life’s changeable and entertaining” Now I’ve gone all voluble, please put me starboard… Where I can see the stars above the briny… See our heroes climb Clissold fence at night Saved in a submarine by my kind aunt She’d dazzle the chorus line please put her down
