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
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
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
Get Up Early 02:26
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
F.S.O.B. 01:07
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
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
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
