Track Name: Made In Paris
Had a good idea, but on the wrong day
Lettin’ all the beauty get in the way
Catchin’ a rival flight down for the long weekend
And you took it the wrong way again
When I said that I don’t wanna be no part
of yr damn scene
Watchin’ in-flight movies on the screen-on-screen
That’s the beauty part of email interview
Hate yr computer ‘cause it’s there to discourage ya
Be part of the merger
I’ve been to Paris heaps
I’m into losing sleep
I get to Paris cheap
And I get embarrassed, but I’m not a Farris
(or friends of Rolf Harris)
There’s a change in you
There’s a change in you
Touching base in all the wrong places
Another acronym for something or other
Emergency landing instructions from Sharna
Don’t ever think I’ve done a bad thing
Getting a seating by the wing
Track Name: Pan-Galactic 3 Day Pass
Absent of discourse
You stay here overnight
The darkness is so bright
We’re doin’ it our way and we’re gonna make it
You talk so tough with yr foot in yr mouth
That you do
I’m only angry to keep me warm
Just satisfactorily, and you’ll do
My pan-galactic 3-day pass
Finding all the right moves
We’ll go at it somewhere, an oval, the rainbow
You got my time with this attitude
Four lanes likely
In an all-time low they just go ‘savage gold’
Success is not my strong point
So don’t touch that dial, you don’t know where it’s been
Track Name: Cute Gurls Have The Best Diseases
Bang goes the set list
And those ahead
Flood my bed
The genius of suspicions appeared on the scene
That’s not an answer – you know it
Yr dialogue’s like a bass solo
Ask the options expert
‘Bout the female in tow
And the knucklehead clutch cargo
Cute gerls have the best diseases
Track Name: Get Up Early
Penalty rates for unwanted dates
Excuses for anything
Concentrate but don’t make a mistake
Blue can do anything
That she wants to do
But who the hell are you
Somedays I get up early
Cars crashing in my head
Common sense deserts me
Somedays I get up early
Been going straight now for three days
Not feeling inspired
Hot debate and I’ll make a mistake
Like talk to the driver
When the freeway is okay
And all the basement hacks get outta my way
I’ll be coming home to say
I don’t wanna wait down here too long
I don’t wanna wait down here for too long
The judge said the archers got it wrong
But I swear they wrote this song
Track Name: F.S.O.B.
What's the future of rock and can you make it stop
Turning back the clock like you think we forgot
What's the name of that band?
The band that's in demand?
I tried to sing along, they were doing it wrong
Wasn't such a bad song, they just played it too long
There are no contenders
You got the best investors
Good luck to the new millionaires
All the way to the goddamn top
Make way for the new millionaires
Hoping they don't get dropped
Track Name: Knew She Would
Take me back to the fastback days
And I, I knew she would
Get me out of this drunken haze
And I, I knew she would
I knew she would
Wave a checkered flag for any situation
I knew she would
Use my underwear to open conversation
All my thoughts have been arranged
And I, I knew she would
Throwing me in and out of phasing
And I, I knew she would
I knew she would
Take a chance than rather play it from the hand-off
I knew she would
Have an answer fast for any kind of stand-off
Track Name: Journey To The Centre Of Attention
Here’s to you Mr. Rocker
Taste buds in action, as a distraction
A hierarchy hanging low
So lets’ all play favourites
And all agree to me
I’m offended by concepts in this garbled pre-amble
Out the back, breaking limbs, taking swims
Looking for parking spaces in the sun
And there’s one left for you and me
It’s a half-yearly clearance, with ample parking
Just a touch over normal
Red ones go faster
