Track Name: Screw In The Bits
Well i was walking in the hood with a piece of wood
When a guy in a suit tried to tell me i was up to no good
And i said don't you try to hassle me 'cos my ass is on the line
There ain't no dope and i just can't cope, otherwise i'm doing fine

Screw in the bits, those wooden bits

Well Danny and his man said the drop off was at seven
Playing with the handle till a quarter to eleven
Finally the deal was made and i was in the clear
So i packed the bits away and i opened myself a beer

Screw in the bits, those wooden bits

Ah, woah

Thought i'd mosey on down to the Clipper Cafe
There was a girl there, she was a stripper by day
By night she packed a rifle and nobody could tease her
Takes a bucket full of trifle and a wetsuit to please her

Screw in the bits, those wooden bits
Track Name: Living Proof
They say that hugging trees will make you dirty
But I think that the opposite is true
They say that those who save the Earth have got no style
But here's a word of wisdom from me to you

I'm living proof, I'm living proof
That you can be a hippie and still look good

They say you can't stay clean around a campfire
You can't avoid the wood smoke as a rule
But is nuclear power and petrol any cleaner?
And by using them, does that make you look cool?

I'm living proof, I'm living proof
That you can be a hippie and still look good

Here come the hippies with their beards and pierced noses
And three piece suits
Looking very dapper with their tops and tails
And army surplus boots

Here come the hippies with their beads and flowing robes
And organic food
Well, if they can't solve the problems of the world today
At least they look good!

I'm living proof, I'm living proof
That you can be a hippie and still look good
Track Name: Can't Be Bothered
It's not a question of being afraid, no no no, i just can't be bothered
It's not a question of getting laid, no no no, i just can't be bothered
And it's not a question of being in love, no no no, live your life in tatters
And it's not a matter for God above, no no no, it's here and now that matters, yeah

t's not a question of a broken heart, no no, you gotta keep it together
It's not the question of a brand new start, no no no, just that it's not or never... never?
And it's not a question of what to do, no no, no no, just keep on living
But it's not a matter of me and you, me and you and who needs forgiving, no no no...
Track Name: Computer
Look into my eyes and i'll show you something
But don't take away my flies, and don't jump on a spring

'cos i can't control myself and i don't wanna play computer anymore
I can't control myself and i don't wanna play computer anymore

Eat more tobacco and throw yourself away
Watch your own hand grow and never ever complain

'cos i can't control myself and i don't wanna play computer anymore
I can't control myself and i don't wanna play computer anymore

Sing a sad song and give yourself a plan
Find a shoe where you belong and telephone a man

'cos i can't control myself and i don't wanna play computer anymore
I can't control myself and i don't wanna play computer anymore
Track Name: Burning In My Soul
As i see you through the mist it seems i've found you
Almost as a dream it seems as though it's not true
When i saw you there i stared, i couldn't help it
Floating through the dawn, a perfect, frozen, moment

Your skin, softer than the snow
Your lips, hotter than the Sun
Your eyes, burning in my soul

What am i to do, i couldn't even tell you
What was in the air was everywhere i turned to
There was only time and space for just an instant
Caught forever in my mind, a perfect moment

Your skin, softer than the snow
Your lips, hotter than the Sun
Your eyes, burning in my soul

Burning in my soul
Track Name: I Wanna See You Again
And there you were eating your lunch on the same park bench as i
The way you had your head cocked to one side made me think well my oh my
And i was thinking of saying hello when you said hello to me
We got to talking and i have to admit, it made me wanna see
See you again

I got your email and i gave you mine and with that we parted ways
I sent a note inviting you to my show but of course, i'd waited for a couple of days
No reply, no reply, baby, what can the matter be?
I was charming and i was polite, did you see something wrong with me?
Why won't you see me again?

Why won't you see me? Why won't you see me again?
We had a lot in common, and i wanna see you again

Yes, i wanna see you again
