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

Living Proof 04:23
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

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...

Computer 04:26
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

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

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
