Rudebox
A track by track guide by Robbie Williams
Article added on August 21, 2006

It wasnt till I was in the studio the other day listening to a few of the tracks back,  I was with the Soul Mekanik boys and the thought hit meDo songs like the ones you like, Im eight albums in, why didnt I think of this before. Doh! Ive just been scared to make this record before I think.

My solo career started when the Britpop explosion did, and I thought try and make songs that sound like that, but this is nowIm 32 years old, eight albums in, and this is the record Ive always wanted to make. Its the start for me. Its reignited how I think about what I can do with music myself. Ive always been scared to try out different things and this album I think Ive lost the fear of where I should be in my head as a populist, as a populist artist, and it means I can just go and do wonky pop now, which is all I really wanted to do anyway.

It has become something on which Ive found myself. This is the right direction for me personally, this is what it is. I saw the whole Robbie thing coming to a close, I couldnt make another album like the ones Id made, and this has just opened up a thousand other doors. What I am excited about now is making more music. I love all the stuff on the album, I love Rudebox, its a favourite song of mine. I dont know whats gonna happen now, Im excited about getting it out there, but Im more excited about making more.

Robbie Williams, August 2006

Rudebox

Danny & Kelvin (aka Soul Mekanik) sent me the very basic drum track and it just became a floor shaker with lyrics straight outta Stoke on Trent. My heads been in some strange places and taken some strange exit turns since I was 16. When we get in the studio we gel and we know where we are going, we get excited when its right. I think Im/were onto something. I just think the synchronicity of where we come from and how we are as people adds its own certain chemistry in the studio. Its a bit strange to be playing this live at the moment cos no one knows it and the venues are massive and playing something so leftfield can be quite daunting, it is something I haven't done on any other tour (played something no one knows) usually I am a big fan of give them what they want. This time I decided it is a case of give them what they don't know they want yet.

Viva Life on Mars

For me it is doing away with all I have been taught and instead of investing my faith in a Catholic religion, I decided that the fantasies on the internet are more interesting than the fantasies at the pulpit. I see it as 'Oh Brother Where Art Thou', meets Primal Scream when they were good; there has been 3 World Cups since then. Is this my first ever hoe down? A few hoes have bought me down before

Lovelight

I wouldnt have known about Lovelight if it hadnt have been for Tom Middletons The Trip album- he put it on there, and I fell in love with it instantlyI cant believe how big that song is and no one knows it. It is amazing to work with a white boy with a ghetto pass like Mark Ronson. He is on the cutting edge of all that is good out there and still manages to love pop. I feel honoured to work with somebody that puts cynicism aside in favour of the truth. I was concerned about singing that vocal, because its full on falsetto all the way through it and Id only ever done that on the chorus of a track called Tripping that I did a couple of years ago. I knew that Lewis Taylor had done such a great vocal that it would be really hard to replicate but I think I did good singing

King Of The Bongo (added on October 4, 2006: new song title: Bongo Bong / Je Ne T'Aime Plus)

I didnt pick this song, It picked meKing Of The Bongo was played to me by a couple of friends of mine six years ago, and I always thought Ive got to cover this.. and now was the right time. King Of The Bongo to me is like an unwritten Disney Film. How did Lily Allen end up on here? I knew about her as I had met her at the studio. The Lily Allen Phenomenon is not solely contained to the UK she seems to be doing well everywhere...good on her too.

She's Madonna

My life seems to be like a never ending edition of Jim'll fix it. I am truly blessed. The odds of Robbie Williams making a ninth album ten years ago would have been more than long against. To be writing this album and having my heroes work with me feels phenomenal. I played Tour De France by Kraftwerk and said I like this, Can we do something like this, but not much like this, but then everything else came together pretty quickly. In case anyone asksThere is nothing tongue in cheek about this song at all, I have always fancied Madonna. I'd have hoped for it to be this good, but you can never tell before venturing into the studio. It is just a bonus that it worked out so well.

Keep On

There were 3 things I taped off the TV that I used to watch on repeat when I was a kid Princes Alphabet St Tour, Public Enemy @ Brixton and The Happy Mondays at G Mex. I suppose I was interested in the Happy Mondays because they looked like psychedelic next door neighbours with faces and attitude that I understood. Little did we all know that in 2006 we would still be chasing 1989? I can't remember lyrics at the best of times, there are so many in this so I doubt I will ever do it live. It is about choosing a different kind of life and believing in the boogie and all it brings.

Good Doctor

Originally we had a sample from the Return of Django by the Upsetters, but we got rid of that, but we could always do that later. Sorry The UpsettersIt came from trying to bend the rules of a sober life, I am 32 and am still trying to look for a short cut, there isn't one. Is it hard to rhyme all those medical terms? No but it is hard to find a perfect balance.

The Actor

Partly written on Oscars Night, The Actor is about living in LA, and how it has given me little respect for the acting profession. I don't see this as a dance song at all; I see it as a story over Germanic electro pop.

Never Touch That Switch

The first records I bought were electro records and I never thought in a million years it would be something Robbie Williams could do. It only struck me in the studio as we were recording. Although I didn't write this one it just reminded me of pre-narcotics and pro-stealing your mums lino. What does it mean? I don't know, it is in the eye of the beholder. To me Never Touch That Switch is all about never opening your system to the mood altering experience...you don't know what it can do to you.

Louise

When I was writing and recording Intensive Care with Stephen Duffy, Louise by the Human League kept on being the centre point on what I wanted to achieve with the record. With Louise I remember when it first came out, and then I didnt listen to it for ages until the middle of the 90s. When I heard it again, it kind of broke my heart thinking of a period of time I had back whenI wanted to make an album that would hopefully break a few hearts in 10/15 years time. Louise was the template for the Intensive Care album, so it seemed the natural next step to play homage to it and I think weve done a good version of it. Id always wanted to work with William Orbit, I love my ambient melancholy.

We're The Pet Shop Boys

I just love the fact that the Pet Shop Boys covered it, it is not one of their songs and I love the irony of me covering a cover. Above all that the romance for me in this song is paramount. Did I feel like a Pet Shop Boy when I was recording it? Yes absolutely (said with a big smile). Chris Heath (The person who co-wrote Feel my autobiography with me) played it to me and I fell in love with it. I must say when Ive listened to it back and when I get a chance to sing it, the What have I, What have I, What have I done to deserve this bit sends shivers down my spine, everytime it comes up. Its a sense of history, yours and mine and those particular lyrics really affect me. Its an honour to do it. I love the Pet Shop Boys and I was pleased to learn that amongst pop genii I can hold my own.

Burslem Normals

It is about an ideal of youth; It is about how in the 80's and the early 90's there were so many avenues to explore and so many gangs to be a part of. Youth Culture these days depressingly seems just about the Chav. Back then we had so much choice and the Burslem Normals was a piece of graffiti from the town I was born in, I don't know what they were into, but they sound cool as fuck.I have always liked what I like and it has always been varied and fortunately I find myself find a position where I do not have to pigeon hole myself. The sentiment in this song is the same as the sentiment in the song 'Heaven From Here' but wonkier.

Kiss Me

Stephen Duffy plays like he hates it; I wanted to do it as I wanted him to see how good the track is. Also when this track came out in 1981, something nice must have been happening to me at the time, because it makes me feel full of hope. Youths yearning for life and love and all of that. Does he like it? I don't know, I daren't ask him. Ok, so I just asked him, and yes he does.

80s

I was obsessed by a track by the Mitchell Brothers called Routine Check and also a big fan of Mike Skinner of The Streets and what he does over records, be it rapping or poetry. Its very similar to Ian Durys stuff to me, Im also a big fan of his, he was the first white British rapper. Ive always always wanted to be a rapper, Ive always been jealous of rappers because of how comfy they are and how cool they look, theyve always got a tracksuit on and trainers and I have to dress up cos Im a popstar... I want to be a rapper but the world won't let me. The only reason I have craved my own niche is because it is not that easy. I love words and will continue to use them. It is bitter sweet about a decade where I formed an opinion, I was wrong.

90s

The 90s on the other hand was, originally going to have a sample from one of my top 5 favourite songsWichita Lineman in it. I didnt like it at first, but I came around to it and did some poetry on it, some comfy rapping, with very English storytelling like a modern Roald Dahl but fatter! The 90s then on became the 90s after we took the sample out. I look back at it now with a fondness in my heart. I think they are just two nice bookends; The 80s up until Id left school, lost my virginity, done all kinds. Then there was the whole Take That story to tell which was The 90s. Its weird now, Ive spunked all the best material so Ill have to do something drastic so that we have some source material for the next one.

Summertime

When it was originally written it was one of the first, if not the first songs I wrote when I came out of Take That and the feel of the song is a complete juxtapose of how I was at the time. When I wrote Summertime, which is a very euphoric, up song I dont think I could have been anymore depressed, deluded, lost. I remember I went down to London in a pair of Vivian Westwood tartan bondage trousers, a pair of black Patrick Cox and a lovely white Vivian Westwood shirtI was skinny as, a right proper raver and I moved in with a lady on new years night, and by February I was just fat! fat and horrible and lost, all over the place. That was when I met up with Ant Genn and we wrote the song together, Ant was my indie enfant terrible; I adored him cos he was cool as fuck and Northern and funny, I wanted to be him, but drugs took their tole on both of us. At least I have a lasting memory of an amazing yet catastrophic summer, plus I love the fact that little bunnies freeze in the snow.

Dickhead (Bonus Track)

Dickhead was definitely leant from the Mitchell Brothers, so they are to blame for this whole thing. Conversely amongst my friends, Dickhead is the biggest compliment that can be paid, if I call you a Dickhead I like you, but it means the reverse on this record. Life sometimes seems to be a Krypton factor course of idiots, unfortunately idiots speak the loudest. This song is for everyone who thinks I am a Dickhead, I am just reciprocating, the feeling is mutual.

I know that you know some lovely people. Send them all an invitation, yer party to a segregation woah. Woah
Viva life on mars Im calling, sending my frequency to the galaxy so you can see people down here
They dont want us to discuss the picture in the caves of us. A nosebleed and a bag of coal then they put you in a hole. Were knee deep in information, and they cant stop this conversation. Woah woah
I know that you know some lovely people. Send them all an invitation, party to a segregation woah. Woah
Viva life on mars Im calling, sending my frequency to the galaxy so you can see were all down here
I just wanna be x 8
Love is natural love is good, not everybody does it but everybody should. With them and us weve made a mess, till they decide which god is best. Free yourself from liberation from lake Geneva to the freeland station woah woah
I know that you know some lovely people. Send them all an invitation, yer party to a segregation woah woah.
Viva life on mars Im calling, sending my frequency to the galaxy so you can see people down here

Since you walked right into my life and interrupted the flow
CHORUS
I wanna know
Baby when youre with me
Who do you think youre foolin?
Making me feel so short
Turnin your lovelight down again
Why dont you let me be
You dont know what youre doin
Making me feel so short
And turnin your lovelight down again
Did it again, did it again
Baby Ive got to know
Are we gonna make it?
Lay it down right beside me tonight and do whatever you feel
Baby your in control
Where you gonna take it?
Dont you think that Ill do you right you know darn well that I will
CHORUS

And turnin your lovelight down again
Do it again, do it again
Do it again, do it again
Baby you turn your lovelight down
And I dont know, just how long I can stick around
Gonna need more, and it aint just physical
I dunno what I can do, if Ive found that

Keep turning down your lovelight, did it again  (x 4)
CHORUS

BONGO BONG / Je Ne T'aime Plus

Mama was queen of the mambo
Papa was king of the Congo
Deep down in the jungle
I started bangin' my first bongo
Every monkey'd like to be
In my place instead of me
Cause I'm the king of bongo, baby
I'm the king of bongo bong
I went to the big town
Where there is a lot of sound
From the jungle to the city
Looking for a bigger crown
So I play my boogie
For the people of big city
But they don't go crazy
When I'm bangin' in my boogie
I'm the "king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong"
Hear me when I come
King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
They say that I'm a clown
Making too much dirty sound
They say there is no place for little monkey in this town
Nobody'd like to be in my place instead of me
Cause nobody go crazy when I'm bangin' on my boogie
I'm the king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come
King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Bangin' on my bongo all that swing belongs to me
I'm so happy there's nobody in my place instead of me
I'm a king without a crown hanging loose in a big town
But I'm the king of bongo baby I'm the king of bongo bong
King of the bongo, king of the bongo bong
Hear me when I come, baby, king of the bongo, king of the bongo bong...

SHES MADONNA

Oh, Madonna, Madonna
I don't miss you
just who
you used to be
and you don't ring true
so please
stop calling me
Your "I love you"'s
are ten a penny
You're dropping clues
like you've got any
You got to choose
There's been so many ohhhh
I love you baby
but face it she's Madonna
No man on earth
could say that he don't want her
This look of love
says I'm leaving
you're frozen now
I've done the freezing
I'm walking out
Madonna's calling me
She's got to be
obscene to be believed
That's her routine
Not what she means to me
I found myself
by circumstance
across a room
where people dance
And quite by chance
she' danced right next me
I love you baby
but face it she's Madonna
No man on earth
would say that he don't want her
It's me not you
I've got to move on
You're younger too
but she's got her groove on
I'm sorry love
Madonna's calling me
Oh, Madonna, Madonna
I want to tell you a secret
We're having drinks
with Kate and Stella
Gwyneth's here
she's brought her fella
But all I wanna do
is take Madonna home
I love you baby
but face it she's Madonna
No man on earth
would say that he don't want her
It's me not you
I've got to move on
You're younger too
but she's got her groove on
I'm sorry love
Madonna's calling me

NEVER TOUCH THAT SWITCH

Size of which is paradoxic the only way youre gonna stop this
In the vessel theres a switch in the middle, you really shouldnt fiddle cause its toxic. Listen up cos its a red light, and the pressures blowing up tight
Theres a skism in the time mechanism, theres a skism in the time mekanism
Never touch that switch, even if you want to. You dont know what it can do.
Never touch that switch, even if you want to. You dont know what it can do.
See the futures in the distance I know Im facing some resistance
Getting back within the blink of a bubble, time machine never gives us any
Trouble. Theres a riot down in Shelton, only minutes after Brixton but this city never made it on the telly. Or the rumble of the nations underbelly
Never touch that switch, even if you want to. You dont know what it can do.
Never touch that switch, even if you want to. You dont know what it can do.
You know youre heading for a meltdown, and youre living in a tin town
Thinking that youre gonna be somebody, living in the land of milk and honey
Listen up cos its a red light, and the futures blowing up tight
Theres a skism in the time mechanism, theres a skism in the time mekanism
Never touch that switch, even if you want to. You dont know what it can do.
Never touch that switch, even if you want to. You dont know what it can do.
Never touch that switch, even if you want to. You dont know what it can do.
Never touch that switch, even if you want to. You dont know what it can do.

LOUISE

When he saw her getting of the bus
It seemed to wipe away the years
Her face was older, just a little rough
But her eyes were still so clear
He drank his coffee and he hurried out
Across before she walked away
Then he approached her like a little child
Too scared for what he had to say
"hello, louise,
Remember me?
Now should we part
Or stay awhile?
As if we were still lovers"
She took a moment just to recognise the man she'd known so well before
And as he started to apologise
Lose any bitterness she bore
She gently put her finger on his lips
To let him know she understood
And with her suitcase standing on the floor
Embraced him like a lover would
He told louise
"you look so good
It's just you see
You make me feel
As if we were still lovers"
It's not always true that time heals all wounds
There are wounds that you don't wanna heal
The memories of something really good
Something truly real, that you never found again
And though they talked for just a little time
Before she said she had to go
He saw the meeting as a tiny sign
That told him all he had to know
And so louise
Waved from the bus
And as she left
She gave that smile
As if they were still lovers

WE'RE THE PET SHOP BOYS

Suburbia's a slipstream
to a memory
of a time when you were
close to me
I pretend
I'm there again
I close my eyes and see you
better than before
then I feel you touch me
and it's 1984
I know what you will say
before you start
in my heart
We're the Pet Shop Boys
We're the Pet Shop Boys
Every thought's a fashion
or a crime
and every boy is just
a waste of time
but I pretend
it was different then
Maybe it's a habit
Maybe it's a sin
But I find out
when I try it on
it crawls beneath my skin
Once it gets inside me
it won't go
Now I know
We're the Pet Shop Boys
We're the Pet Shop Boys
Rent
Shopping
Being boring
It's alright
It's a sin
I'm not scared
In denial
I want a dog
I want a lover
Can you forgive her?
Do I have to?
What have I? What have I?
What have I done to deserve this?

BURLSEM NORMALS

In your face theres nowt left. They have defaced the marks you left upon the wall
The writings now not there at all, can you stand what you stood for, are you more normal than before?
Goodbye to the normals x 2
In your place theres just chavs. The kids arent alright. They know theyre born today
Reaching out to feel the sun at the time it seemed like fun. I was there when you got done.
There for two weeks by the surf, you used to know what we were worth before the normals fell to earth
Goodbye to the normals x 2
Whatever happened to, the Meir mortals crew, the fine young casuals blew a fuse and all the Burslem lads now that theyre all dads it meant so much to me, it makes me sad
In your wake, theres nowt left

KISS ME

In my young life I have received
Callers as though they were Christmas Eve
Disappointed and I don't know why
She gave me laughter and hope
And a sock in the eye
(A love like this is sealed with a kiss)
In my young life and I know something now
I've never tried to create a wow
Wows are few frustration more common
Now I can feel it in my soul
That's why I gave the come on
Kiss me with your mouth
Your love is better than wine
But wine is all I have
Will your love ever be mine?
Faces fall before my feet.
Like blood onto a clean white sheet
When I grow old I won't forget
To innocence my only debt
(A love like this is sealed with a kiss)
Wow I feel so fresh today
Barefoot in the snow to make love in the hay
The stars are bright in the abyss
Now I can feel you in my arms
I explode inside your kiss.

THE 80S

Verses 1
I smoke consulate and Park Drive
drank newky brown learned how to skive
polo mints to hide my breath from my mum
did a little weed cos it felt like fun
did a little speed if my friends had some
nicked volkswagon badges Im a Beastie boys son
me so horny me so young and I still get my washing done
Auntie Jo died of cancer God didnt have an answer
rhythm was a dancer any room for a chancer
thats me in the corner thanks sir
wore a troop track suite british nike shoes
kangol hat like LL Cools
before I was having it having it large
they nicked the BMX from out my garage
and I new it was Tire from off the estate
cos every time I saw him he smiled like we were mates
from then on in, Id have to walk to me nans and Ill dream my dreams for a sea of prams
let a hooligan on the football stands and I threw the Vs to Leeds and West Ham
And then I ran, I ran so far away
Down Scotia road to a taxi bay
Then I ran again, cause I couldnt pay
Young muslim didnt get his fare that day I apologize today
Chorus
Things look better when they start
Thats how the 80s broke my heart
Verse 2
And who are you calling poff
You like Wham, man
I hate that stuff
And then my granddad died and left a hole in the family
And lots of women there to nanny me
School was a laugh, they didnt have ADD
Thick was the term they used for me
Over and over, repeatedly over and over
Take my breathe away pass the bidley bidley bidley bidley bong
Pass it on the left hand side
Right turn, Clyde
That girl in the fourth year got pregnant
She was raised Catholic, brilliant
I cried, she cried, we cried, her youth died
Drank cider in the cemetery
The year above us had discovered E
And I said it wont for me
Twelve pounds fifty
I could rob my moms purse and buy one off chalky
Met a girl on Monday, drank fizzy pop on Tuesday,
Fingered her on Wednesday, and on Thursday, Friday Saturday Dumped by Sunday
Chorus 2
Things look better when they start
Thats how the 80s broke my heart
The wonder years Ive played my part
Thats how the 80s broke my heart
Verse 3
I lost my virginity to a girl called Anne Marie\
Well she said she fancied me
And then she said fuck me and I thought fuck me
And Im all talk and itll be over too quickly
And it was but I couldnt care less
Id seen a girls part made a mess on  her dress
Ohh yes youre now rocking with the best
Second person in my year that had seen the breast
Im in my 30s now and Im still impessed
Why the Falklans Mum and what have they done
where do girls come, where do girls come where do girls come
Its the 80s what you looking at you mong
So youg so Long So youg so Long
Too short so long
what youlooking at you mong
Too short so long Too short so long
So long

THE 90S

Picking up the story from where I left off Its 1990 now so school can fuck off I got no GCSEs, nothing higher than a D
I couldnt tell me mum because shed batter me Me and Tate sat on the bowling green, life was a shitter We had five quid between us and bought six cans of bitter I took me ten Benson home and I smoked through the sorrow If I could just avoid me Mum, maybe Id tell her tomorrow I stumbled through the door I said "Mum its like this"

Phoned up Martin and Rich and carried on getting pissed Boys I dont believe it, Im goin to be famous Pick you up in a Porsche and buy you lots of trainers I met the other guys, one seemed like a cock I think its going to be like New Kids On The Block
I cant be bothered cause Im lazy

I cant forgive and its crazy, baby
Now Im a video star
Baa baa baa, ba baa baa
Do you know who you are, baby
(I only wanted to get down
Im making trouble in this town
For the five of us)
I adopted four brothers, some I liked more than others One was like a brother from another mother But the lead singer made it hard to like him And I still loved him, despite him The first three months, you know I nearly quit I played snooker with my Dad, he said Dont be a dick Unload the bullets, youre mind is a gun Youre gonna shoot yourself when theyre number one
I cant be bothered cause Im lazy
I hate those that hate me
I cant forgive and its crazy, baby
Now Im a video star

Do you know who you are, baby
(I only wanted to get down
Im making trouble in this town
For the five of us)
Now its dinner with Versace lunch with Princess Diana And Im gonna get battered if I go out in my manor Cause as much as we were loved we were also hated The boys got jealous cause the girls got plated And now were famous and that, and were dancing and that And Im thinking I can sing why am I stood at the back
So fuck the band give me Sambuka and gak
I cant be bothered cause Im lazy
I hate those that hate me
I cant forgive and its crazy, baby
Now Im a video star
Baa baa baa, ba baa baa
Do you know who you are, baby
(I only wanted to get down
Im making trouble in this town
For the five of us)
And now its breaking my heart because the dreams turned to shit It aint broke but Ill break it in a little bit And Im always in trouble but Ive stopped saying sorry Everybodys worried What the fucks wrong with Robbie He not answering his phone, hes not talking to me I saw him on the telly at Glastonbury
And now Im running away from everything that Ive been And Im pissed and Im fucked, and Im only nineteen I cant conform no more, I cant perform no more
But the boys know Im fucked and so they show me the door And if the truth be told I wasnt fit enough to stay So I put my head down and walked away That was the 90's, 90 to 95
I cant be bothered cause Im lazy
I hate those that hate me
I cant forgive and its crazy, baby
Now Im a video star
Baa baa baa, ba baa baa
Do you know who you are, baby
(I only wanted to get down
Im making trouble in this town
For the five of us)

SUMMERTIME

This is how I pray in the summer time, this is how I pray in the summer
Got my glass of shandy now I feel fine, this is how I pray. Yeah
The more you say, the more you pray, the less its getting you down
The more you pray, the more you stay, the less its getting you down
Autumn time, leaves falling all around
Winter time, follows suite
Little bunnies freezing in the snow
Winters  such an ugly brut
Mid city blues, getting ya down
Take a break from the strain
Get out your car, drink a glass of wine
Admit it, you feel great
Its the summertime
This is how I play in the summer time, this is how i pray in the summer
Got my glass of shandy now I feel fine, this is how I pray. Yeah
This is how I pray in the summer time, this is how we play in the summer
Got my glass of shandy now I feel fine, this is how I pray. Yeah
And if your love has met its sad refrain
Believe me you will love again
And all the best laid plans of mice and men go wrong
You can here it in this song
This is how I break for the summer time, this is how I play in the summer
Whats mine is yours, yours is mine
This is how I pray. Yeaaaahhhhhhh. Ooooooooohwoowo
You got the funky drummer in 89
This is how I play. Yeaaaahhhhhhh. Ooooooooohwoowo
Wooooohhhooooooo
The Mondays, the roses, blocking all your noses
Wearting baggy clothies in your buffalo poses
Bank tellers, dropping little fellas
Loved up in the clubs with football fugs
No malice I dig your dreadlocks, buzzing off your socks
Big fish little fish, cardboard box
So give me French kiss, I love you voodoo ray
I dream of santa anna on the road to Mandalay
In the summertime
Where the weather is hot
In the summertime
Where the weather is hot
On my mind, on my mind
In the summertime
Where the weather is hot
In the summertime
Summertime
When the weather is hot
Summertime
On my mind
In the summertime
On my mind
I got shivers down my spine
On my mind
The summertime
On my mind
On my mind

VIVA LIFE ON MARS

I just wanna be x4

I lost all faith in what I know,
the future doesnt need me so
I kick a ball against a wall and
head it til it dont hurt no more
Use my cuts and lacerations, feed
myself a new sensation, woah, woah

Take a ride on your high horse,
if the horse is blind, use the force
The falcon flies in two straight lines,
red five standing by
its not a moon, its a space station,
it feels good, the good vibration,
woah, woah

I know that you know
some lovely people
Send them all an invitation,
party to a segregation, woah, woah

Viva life on Mars Im calling,
sending my frequency to the galaxy
So you can see people down here

They dont want us to discuss
the picture in the caves of us
A nosebleed and a bag of coal,
then they put you in a hole
Were knee deep in information,
and they cant stop this
conversation, no, woah

I know that you know
some lovely people
Send them all an invitation,
party to a segregation, woah, woah

Viva life on Mars Im calling,
sending my frequency to the galaxy
So you can see were all down here

I just wanna be x 8

Love is natural, love is good,
not everybody does it but
everybody should
With them and us weve made a mess,
til they decide which God is best
Free yourself from liberation from
Lake Geneva to the Freeland Station,
Woah, woah

I know that you know
some lovely people
Send them all an invitation,
party to a segregation, woah, woah.

Viva life on Mars Im calling,
sending my frequency to the galaxy
So you can see people down here

Viva life on Mars Im calling x4

LOVELIGHT

What am I supposed to do

To keep from going under

Now youre making holes in my heart
and yes its starting to show

Ive been holding back

Is it any wonder

Since you walked right into my life
and interrupted the flow

CHORUS

I wanna know

Baby when youre with me

Who do you think youre fooling

Making me feel so sure

Turning your lovelight down again

Why dont you let me be

You dont know what youre doing

Making me feel so sure

And turning your lovelight
down again

Did it again, did it again

Baby Ive got to know

Are we gonna make it

Lay it down right beside me tonight
and do whatever you feel

Baby youre in control

Where you gonna take it

Dont you think that Ill do you right,
you know darn well that I will

CHORUS

I wanna know

Baby when youre with me

Who do you think youre fooling

Making me feel so sure

Turning your lovelight down again

Why dont you let me be

You dont know what youre doing

Making me feel so sure

And turning your lovelight down again

Do it again, do it again

Do it again, do it again

Baby you turn your lovelight down

And I dont know
just how long I can stick around

Gonna need more
and it aint just physical

I dunno what I can do, if Ive found
that it aint love this time around

Keep turning down your lovelight, did it again  (x 4)

CHORUS

Whenever you.

Baby when youre with me

Who do you think youre fooling

Making me feel so sure

Turning your lovelight down again

Why dont you let me be

You dont know what youre doing

Making me feel so sure

And turning your lovelight down again

REPEAT AND FADE

BONGO BONG / Je Ne T'aime Plus

Mama was Queen of the mambo

Papa was King of the congo

Deep down in the jungle

I started banging' my first bongo

Every monkey'd like to be

In my place instead of me

Cause I'm the King of bongo, baby

I'm the King of bongo, bong

I went to the big town

Where there is a lot of sound

From the jungle to the city

Looking for a bigger crown

So I play my boogie

For the people of big city

But they don't go crazy

When I'm banging in my boogie

I'm the King of the bongo,
King of the bongo, bong

Hear me when I come, baby

King of the bongo,
King of the bongo, bong
Hear me when I come
Nobody'd like to be
in my place instead of me

Cause nobody go crazy
when I'm banging on my boogie

Im the King without a crown
hanging loose in the big town
But I'm the King of the bongo, baby
Im the King of the bongo, bong
King of the bongo
King of the bongo, bong

Hear me when I come, baby

King of the bongo,
King of the bongo, bong
Hear me when I come

They say that I'm a clown

Making too much dirty sound

They say there is no place
for little monkey in this town

Nobody'd like to be
in my place instead of me

Cause nobody go crazy
when I'm banging on my boogie

I'm King of the bongo
King of the bongo, bong

Hear me when I come, baby

King of the bongo,
King of the bongo, bong
Hear me when I come

Banging on my bongo
all that swing belongs to me

I'm so happy there's nobody
in my place instead of me

I'm a King without a crown
hanging loose in a big town

But I'm the King of bongo, baby
I'm the King of bongo, bong

Im King of the bongo,
King of the bongo, bong

Hear me when I come, baby

King of the bongo,
King of the bongo, bong
Hear me when I come
Mama was Queen of the Mambo

Papa was King of the Congo

Deep down in the jungle

I started banging my first bongo

Every monkey'd like to be

In my place instead of me

Cause I'm the King of bongo, baby

I'm the King of bongo, bong

King of the bongo,
King of the bongo, bong

Hear me when I come, baby

King of the bongo,
King of the bongo, bong
Hear me when I come

SHES MADONNA

Oh, Madonna (Madonna)

I don't miss you,

just who you used to be

and you don't ring true,

so please stop calling me

Your I love yous are ten a penny

You're dropping clues

like you've got any

Youve got to choose

There's been so many, oh

I love you baby,

but face it she's Madonna

No man on earth

could say that he don't want her

This look of love says I'm leaving

you're frozen now,

I've done the freezing

I'm walking out, Madonna's calling me

She's got to be obscene
to be believed

That's her routine

Not what she means to me

I found myself by circumstance

across a room where people dance

And quite by chance she danced
right next me

I love you baby,

but face it she's Madonna

No man on earth

could say that he don't want her

It's me not you, I've got to move on

You're younger too

but she's got her groove on

I'm sorry love, Madonna's calling me

Oh, Madonna (Madonna)

I want to tell you a secret

We're having drinks

with Kate and Stella

Gwyneth's here,

she's brought her fella

But all I wanna do

is take Madonna home

I love you baby,

but face it she's Madonna

No man on earth

could say that he don't want her

It's me not you, I've got to move on

You're younger too,

but she's got her groove on

I'm sorry love, Madonna's calling me

The love I have and the love Ive had

So much love its driving me mad
Blood clotter

He saw and I saw in my saw mine

If youre in this club

Come on everybody boogie down,

Running in the fast lane

Speeding in the dark

Trying to maintain

The feeling in your heart

GOOD DOCTOR

Chorus

You alright, star

No star

You alright, star
No star

You alright, star

No star

I dont feel proper

1st Verse

I went to the doctor to get a prescription

I told him little fact and lots of fiction

About a bad back that I aint got

He tried to sell me faith healing

But I think not

I want Xanax, Vicadin and Oxycontain

Funky fill the form out

So I can drop em

Ive got all these demons

And I cant stop em

To tell you the truth Doc

I might have a problem

Robert Williams take one Adderall
with water in the morning

As if Im going to take one tablet
Im Keith Moon, dickhead

Chorus 2

He said this ones to take you up

(woah)

He said this ones to take you down
(woah)

When I take em I dont feel sound

And I look rather round

You alright, star

No star

You alright, star
No star

You alright, star

No star

I dont feel proper

2nd Verse

You know what Doc
Its alright and all

I just hurt me leg, its not terminal

But a pain killer could help
for whats wrong with my knee

And Im a little bit down from too much tea

Got my own collection,
cant get an erection

If I take em too long
theyll fuck me complexion

Thats right If I take em for
like more than four days in
a row I get that haunted look

Give me loads of pills
Give me loads of pills
Give me loads of pills
Give me loads of pills

Chorus 3

He said this ones to take you up

(woah)

He said this ones to take you down
(woah)

When I take em I dont feel sound

And I look rather round

You alright, star

No star

You alright, star
No star

You alright, star

Five star

I dont feel proper

Now if you go to the barber
shop long enough then youre
gonna get a hair cut

And if go to the Doctors regular,
then you gots to be a fuck up

Well Ive got five or six if Im at a loss

Do I have a history of drug abuse,
no I never tick that box

And I know that one or two of you
are going to be really, really cross

But the drugs dont work,
prescription pills are boss

The glory days are gone and
weve all stopped having it

No raves no more,
just bedside cabinets

Sleepers are great
but dont start dabbing it

The world carries on spinning,
were mad, innit
Take that, take that, innit

Chorus 3

He said this ones to take you up

(woah)

He said this ones to take you down
(woah)

When I take em I dont feel sound

And I look rather round

You alright, star

No star

You alright, star
No star

You alright, star

Five star

I dont feel proper

Know what Doc,
its not like Ive been doing
any research or anything
But if you can give me any of the
following pills Id be very, very grateful cause I feel poorly
So thats
Codeine
Morphine
Opium
Methadone
Menocrabedene
Hydroanoxycodeine
Anolodene
Buprenorphine
Butorphenol
Adderall
Dorel
Work with me, antidepressants
But not St Johns Wort
Cause I can get that at Boots!

THE ACTOR

Principal actors to the stage please
Act One is about to begin
in eight seconds.
VERSE ONE:
First you can't act, now you can't stop,
What's my motivation
I used to like you a lot
I was the class nerd
Exactly who I'm supposed to be
I'm totally Strasberg
You play a Doctor on TV,
What you're doing is so brave
VERSE TWO:
Deep down you're dirty but you try
I'm a good person
The truth would break you so you lie
I want my work to matter
It's in the choices that you make
I want to inspire
No talent, just fate.
CHORUS:
I don't know where you begin
I end, we start again,
They need, you love,
We all watch the actor acting

VERSE THREE:
Good from far but far from good
All I have is my instinct
You love to act, I wish you would
It's not acting, it's reacting
Act like you're not from out of space
When I'm on stage I feel alive
You know ambition isn't grace,
For me it's the craft
VERSE FOUR:
Made of sex, Maida Vale
Would I do better in New York
You are the Alpha Male
I'm just too pretty for that role
You are the good, you are the great
The words have power
Now let me fill you with my hate.

NEVER TOUCH THAT SWITCH

Size of which is paradoxic,
the only way youre gonna stop this
In the vessel theres a switch
in the middle, you really shouldnt fiddle
cause its toxic. Listen up cause its a red light,
and the pressures blowing up tight
Theres a schism in the time
mechanism, theres a schism
in the time mechanism
Never touch that switch,
even if you want to
You dont know what it can do.
Never touch that switch,
even if you want to
You dont know what it can do
See the futures in the distance,
I know Im facing some resistance
Getting back within the blink of
a bubble, time machine will never
give us any trouble
Theres a riot down in Shelton,
only minutes after Brixton
but this city never made it on
the telly, or the rumble of the
nations underbelly
Never touch that switch,
even if you want to
You dont know what it can do.
Never touch that switch,
even if you want to
You dont know what it can do
You know youre heading
for a meltdown,
and youre living in a tin town
Thinking that youre gonna be
somebody, living in the land
of milk and honey
Listen up cause its a red light,
and the futures blowing up tight
Theres a schism in the time mechanism,
theres a schism in the time mechanism
Never touch that switch,
even if you want to
You dont know what it can do.
Never touch that switch,
even if you want to
You dont know what it can do
Never touch that switch,
even if you want to
You dont know what it can do.
Never touch that switch,
even if you want to
You dont know what it can do

LOUISE

When he saw her getting off the bus
It seemed to wipe away the years
Her face was older, just a little rough
But her eyes were still so clear
He drank his coffee and he hurried out
Across before she walked away
Then he approached her like a little child
Too scared for what he had to say
"Hello, Louise,
Remember me?
Now should we part
Or stay awhile?
As if we were still lovers"
She took a moment just to recognise
the man she'd known so well before
And as he started to apologise
Lose any bitterness she bore
She gently put her finger on his lips
To let him know she understood
And with her suitcase standing on the floor
Embraced him like a lover would
He told Louise
"You look so good
It's just you see
You make me feel
As if we were still lovers"
It's not always true that time heals all wounds
There are wounds that you don't wanna heal
The memories of something really good
Something truly real, that you never found again
As if we were still lovers
And though they talked for just a little time
Before she said she had to go
He saw the meeting as a tiny sign
That told him all he had to know
And so Louise
Waved from the bus
And as she left
She gave that smile
As if they were still lovers
It's not always true that time heals all wounds
There are wounds that you don't wanna heal
The memories of something really good
Something truly real, that you never found again

WE'RE THE PET SHOP BOYS

Suburbia's a slipstream to a memory
of a time when you were close to me
I pretend I'm there again
I close my eyes and see
You better than before
then I feel you touch me
and it's 1984
I know what you will say
before you start
in my heart
We're the Pet Shop Boys
We're the Pet Shop Boys
Every thought's a fashion or a crime
And every boy is just a waste of time
but I pretend it was different then
Maybe it's a habit,
Maybe it's a sin
But I find out when I try it on,
it crawls beneath my skin
Once it gets inside me it won't go
Now I know
We're the Pet Shop Boys
We're the Pet Shop Boys
Rent
Shopping
Being boring
It's alright
It's a sin
I'm not scared
In denial
I want a dog
I want a lover
Can you forgive her?
Do I have to?
What have I? What have I?
What have I done to deserve this?
What have I? What have I?
What have I done to deserve this?
We're the Pet Shop Boys

BURLSEM NORMALS

In your face theres nowt left
They have defaced the marks
you left upon the wall
The writings now not there at all
Can you stand what you stood for
Are you more normal than before
Goodbye to the Normals x 2
In your place theres just chavs
The kids arent alright,
They know theyre born today
Reaching out to feel the sun
at the time it seemed like fun
I was there when you got done.
There for two weeks by the surf
We used to know what we were worth
Before the Normals fell to earth
Goodbye to the Normals x 2
Whatever happened to
the mere mortals crew
The fine young casuals
blew a fuse and
all the Burslem lads know
that theyre all Dads
it meant so much to me,
it makes me sad
In your wake theres nowt left

KISS ME

In my young life I have received
Callers as though they were
Christmas Eve
Im disappointed and I don't know why
She gave me laughter and hope
And a sock in the eye
(A love like this is sealed with a kiss)
In my young life and I know
something now
I've never tried to create a wow
Wows are few frustration
more common
Now I can feel it in my soul
That's why I gave the come on
Kiss me with your mouth
Your love is better than wine
But wine is all I have
Will your love ever be mine?
Faces fall before my feet.
Like blood onto a clean white sheet
When I grow old I won't forget
To innocence my only debt
(A love like this is sealed with a kiss)
Wow, I feel so fresh today
Barefoot in the snow
to make love in the hay
The stars are bright in the abyss
Now I can feel you in my arms
I explode inside your kiss.
Kiss me with your mouth
Your love is better than wine
But wine is all I have
Will your love ever be mine?
Kiss me with your mouth
Your love is better than wine
Kiss me with your mouth
Your love is better than wine
But wine is all I have
Will your love ever be mine?

THE 80S

Verses 1
I smoke Consulate and Park Drive
Drank Newcy brown, learned how to skive
Polo mints to hide my breath from my Mum
Did a little weed cause it felt like fun
did a little speed if my friends had some
Nicked Volkswagen badges, Im a Beastie Boys son
Me so horny, me so young,
and I still get my washing done
Auntie Jo died of cancer,
God didnt have an answer
Rhythm was a dancer,
any room for a chancer
Thats me in the corner, thanks Sir
wore a Troop track suite
British Knights shoes
Kangol hat like L.L. Cools
Before I was having it, having it large
They nicked the B.M.X. from out my garage
And I new it was Tire from off the estate
Cause every time I saw him
he smiled like we were mates
From then on in, Id have to walk to
me Nans and Ill dream my dreams
for a sea of prams
Like a hooligan on the football
stands and I threw the Vs
to Leeds and West Ham
And then I ran, I ran so far away
Down Scotia Road to a taxi bay
Then I ran again cause I couldnt pay
Young Muslim didnt get his fare that day
I apologise today
Chorus
Things look better when they start
Thats how the 80s broke my heart
Verse 2
And who are you calling poff
You like Wham, man
I hate that stuff
And then my Granddad died
and left a hole in the family
And lots of women there to nanny me
School was a laugh,
they didnt have A.D.D.
Thick was the term they used for me
Over and over, repeatedly,
over and over
Take my breathe away, pass the
bidley bidley bidley bidley bong
Pass it on the left hand side
Right turn, Clyde
That girl in the fourth year got pregnant
She was raised Catholic, brilliant
I cried, she cried, we cried, her youth died
Drank cider in the cemetery
The year above us had discovered E
And I said it werent for me
Twelve pounds fifty
I could rob my Mums purse
and buy one off Chalky
Met a girl on Monday,
drank fizzy pop on Tuesday
Fingered her on Wednesday,
and on Thursday and Friday,
and on Saturday
Dumped by Sunday
Chorus 2
Things look better when they start
Thats how the 80s broke my heart
The wonder years Ive played my part
Thats how the 80s broke my heart
Verse 3
I lost my virginity to a girl called Anne Marie
Well, she said she fancied me
And then she said Fuck me
and I thought fuck me
And Im all talk and itll be over too quickly
And it was but I couldnt care less
Id seen a girls part
made a mess on  her dress
Oh yes, youre now rocking with the best
Second person in my year
that had seen the breast
Im in my 30s now
and Im still impressed
Why the Falklands Mum,
and what have they done
Where do girls come, where do girls come from,
where do girls come from
Its the 80s what you looking at
you mong
So young, so long, so young, so long
Too short, so long
what you looking at, you mong
Too short, so long, too short, so long
So long

THE 90S

Picking up the story
from where I left off
Its 1990 now so school can fuck off?
I got no GCSEs,
nothing higher than a D
I couldnt tell me Mum
because shed batter me
Me and Tate sat on the bowling
green, life was a shitter
We had five quid between us
and bought six cans of bitter
I took me ten Benson home
and I smoked through the sorrow
If I could just avoid me Mum,
maybe Id tell her tomorrow
I stumbled through the door
I said "Mum its like this"
She said That mans been on the
phone and youve made the list
Youre in that boy band son,
come and give us a kiss
Phoned up Martin and Rich
and carried on getting pissed
Boys I dont believe it,
Im going to be famous
Pick you up in a Porsche
and buy you lots of trainers
I met the other guys,
one seemed like a cock
I think its going to be like
New Kids On The Block
I cant be bothered cause Im lazy
I hate those that hate me
I cant forgive and its crazy, baby
Now Im a video star
Baa baa baa, ba baa baa
Do you know who you are, baby
I only wanted to get down
Im making trouble in this town
For the five of us
I adopted four brothers,
some I liked more than others
One was like a brother
from another mother
But the lead singer
made it hard to like him
And I still loved him, despite him
The first three months,
you know I nearly quit
I played snooker with my dad,
he said Dont be a dick
Unload the bullets,
youre mind is a gun
Youre gonna shoot yourself
when theyre number one
I cant be bothered cause Im lazy
I hate those that hate me
I cant forgive and its crazy, baby
Now Im a video star
Baa baa baa, ba baa baa
Do you know who you are, baby
I only wanted to get down
Im making trouble in this town
For the five of us
Now its dinner with Versace
lunch with princess Diana
And Im gonna get battered
if I go out in my manor
Cause as much as we were loved
we were also hated
The boys got jealous
cause the girls got plated
And now were famous and that,
and were dancing and that
And Im thinking I can sing
why am I stood at the back
So fuck the band
give me Sambuka and gak
Were all a bag of nerves
And not a band of brothers
I cant be bothered cause Im lazy
I hate those that hate me
I cant forgive and its crazy, baby
Now Im a video star
Baa baa baa, ba baa baa
Do you know who you are, baby
I only wanted to get down
Im making trouble in this town
For the five of us
And now its breaking my heart
because the dreams turned to shit
It aint broke but Ill
break it in a little bit
And Im always in trouble
but Ive stopped saying sorry
Everybodys worried
What the fucks wrong with Robbie
He not answering his phone,
hes not talking to me
I saw him on the telly
at Glastonbury
And now Im running away
from everything that Ive been
And Im pissed and Im fucked,
and Im only nineteen
I cant conform no more,
I cant perform no more
But the boys know Im fucked
and so they show me the door
And if the truth be told
I wasnt fit enough to stay
So I put my head down
and walked away
That was the 90's, 90 to 95
I cant be bothered cause Im lazy
I hate those that hate me
I cant forgive and its crazy, baby
Now Im a video star
Baa baa baa, ba baa baa
Do you know who you are, baby
I only wanted to get down
Im making trouble in this town
For the five of us

SUMMERTIME

This is how I pray in the summertime,
this is how I pray in the summer
Got my glass of shandy,
now I feel fine, this is how I pray, yeah
The more you say, the more you pray,
the less its getting you down
The more you pray, the more you
stay, the less its getting you down
Autumn time, leaves falling all around
Winter time follows suite
Little bunnies freezing in the snow
Winters such an ugly brute
Mid-city blues, getting ya down
Take a break from the strain
Get out your car,
drink a glass of wine
Admit it, you feel great
Its the summertime
This is how I play in the summer time, this is how i pray in the summer
Got my glass of shandy now I feel fine, this is how I pray. Yeah
This is how I pray in the summertime,
this is how we play in the summer
Got my glass of shandy,
now I feel fine, this is how I pray, yeah
And if your love has met
its sad refrain
Believe me, you will love again
And all the best laid plans
of mice and men go wrong
You can here it in this song
This is how I break for
the summertime,
this is how I play in the summer
Whats mine is yours, yours is mine
This is how I pray. Yeaaaahhhhhhh. Ooooooooohwoowo
You got the funky drummer in 89
This is how I play. Yeaaaahhhhhhh. Ooooooooohwoowo
Wooooohhhooooooo
The Mondays, The Roses,
blocking all your noses
Wearing baggy clothes
And their buffalo poses
Bank tellers, dropping little fellas
Loved up in the clubs with
football thugs, no malice
I dig your dreadlocks,
buzzing off your socks
Big fish, little fish, cardboard box
So give me French-kiss, I love you
Voodoo Ray
I dream of Santa Ana
on the road to Mandalay
In the summertime
Where the weather is hot
In the summertime
Where the weather is hot
On my mind, on my mind
In the summertime
Where the weather is hot
In the summertime
Summertime
When the weather is hot
In the summertime
On my mind
In the summertime
On my mind
I got shivers down my spine
On my mind
Happiness is surface light
On my mind
On my mind
