1. IN THE NIGHT (Tennant/Lowe)
---------------
     Zazou, what you're gonna do?
     There's a lot of people coming for you  
     Zazou, comment allez-vous?
     A knock on the door in the night

That Zazou, he don't care
Dark glasses, long hair
Takes his time, sneers at men
Some ugly people want revenge

     Zazou, comment allez-vous?
     A knock on the door in the night

     In the night

That Zazou, he sleeps all day 
Then down to Select or Le Collisee
Sips his drinks, orders more
Says what he thinks and it's a crazy war

     Zazou, what you're gonna do?
     A knock on the door in the night 

     Zazou, comment allez-vous?
     A knock on the door in the night 

And when the soldiers strut, all he cares about
Is love
When the flags are out, all he cares about
Is love
Well, there's a thin line between love and crime
And in this situation
A thin line between love and crime and -
Collaboration 

     In the night
     (the night the night the night the night ...) 

     Zazou, what you're gonna do?
     There's a lot of people coming for you
     Zazou, comment allez-vous?
     A knock on the door in the night

Now everybody's under somebody's spell
Unless they've already gone to hell
In the streets you can hear the people say
That, Zazou, he should be locked away!

When the soldiers strut, all he cares about
Is love
Oh, when the flags are out, all he cares about
Is love
And there's a thin line between love and crime
And in this situation
A thin line between love and crime and
Collaboration

2. A MAN COULD GET ARRESTED (Tennant/Lowe)
---------------------------
     Do it (do it do it do it do it do it...)
     Do it do it do it do it do it do it do it do it...
     Do it now do it now do it now do it now do it now do it now do it now
     Do it (do it do it do it do it...)

Late on Tuesday evening, such a commotion in the street
Someone broke a window, and someone's head got beat
A wave of breaking bottles, crashed across the city street
And someone got arrested, for the breach of the peace

     If you wanna walk (walk walk walk walk)
     Don't talk (talk talk talk talk)
     Do it! (do it do it do it do it do it do it do it)

     If you wanna earn (earn earn earn earn)
     Learn (learn learn learn)
     how to do it! (do it do it do it do it do it do it do it)

     And if you wanna ride (ride ride ride ride)
     don't hide (don't hide)
     Do it! (do it do it do it do it do it do it do it do it)

     If you wanna stay (stay stay stay)
     Don't say (say say say)
     Prove it! (prove it prove it prove it prove it prove it prove it)

How much longer are you gonna sit and talk to me?
You got so many problems and a split personality
You want to see a doctor before our love is tested
How much longer a man could get arrested?

     If you wanna walk (walk walk walk walk)
     Don't talk (talk talk talk talk)
     Do it! (do it do it do it do it do it do it do it)

     If you wanna earn (earn earn earn earn)
     Learn (learn learn learn learn)
     how to do it! (do it do it do it do it do it)

     And if you wanna ride (ride ride ride ride)
     don't hide (hide hide hide hide hide)
     Do it! (do it do it do it do it do it do it)

     And if you wanna stay (stay stay stay)
     Don't say (say say say)
     Prove it! (prove it prove it prove it prove it prove it prove it)

You've got your health, you've got everything, that's what my doctor said
You may not have much cash, but you've got a roof over your head
Of course I said I loved you, not just 'cause you insisted
How much longer a man could get arrested?

     If you wanna walk (walk walk walk walk)
     Don't talk (talk talk talk talk)
     Do it! (do it do it do it do it do it do it do it)

     If you wanna earn (earn earn earn earn)
     Learn (learn learn learn learn)
     how to do it! (do it do it do it do it do it do it)

     If you wanna ride
     don't hide
     Do it! (do it do it do it do it do it do it)

     If you wanna stay (stay stay stay stay stay)
     Don't say (say say say say say say)
     Do it! (do it do it)
     Do it! (do it do it do it do it do it do it)

          Why don't, why don't we do it now?
          Do it now?
          Why don't, why don't we do it now?
          Why don't we do it now?

          Why don't, why don't we do it now?
          Why don't we do it now?
          Why don't we do it now?

3. THAT'S MY IMPRESSION (Tennant/Lowe)
-----------------------
I went looking for someone I couldn't find
Staring at faces by the Serpentine
Walking slowly, I realized
You'd been and gone - I know you lied
     That's my impression
     That's my impression
     That's my impression
     That's my impression

The wind was chilly and the sky was dull
I went for shelter to the temple
Once inside I couldn't believe my eyes
You'd been and gone - I know you lied
     That's my impression
     That's my impression
     That's my impression
     That's my impression

Go to a club - you think I'll be there
I don't go 'cause I'm not a member
You said you went to apologize
It's plain to me that's one more lie
     That's my impression
     That's my impression
     That's my impression (impression)
     That's my impression

I went looking for someone I couldn't find
Staring at faces by the Serpentine
Walking slowly, I realized
You'd been and gone - I know you lied
     That's my impression
     That's my impression
     That's my impression
     That's my impression
     It's an expression
     And a suggestion
     I learned my lesson
     That's my impression 
     That's my impression (impression)
     That's my impression 
     That's my impression (impression)
     I learned my lesson

I went looking for someone I couldn't find 
Staring at faces by the Serpentine 
Walking slowly I - realized 
You'd been and gone - I know 
     You lied - that's my impression
     I know you lied
     And that's my impression
     That's my impression
     My impression
     That's my impression

4. WAS THAT WHAT IT WAS? (Tennant/Lowe)
------------------------
Think again - remember what we said
Promises - how we both forget
Even now I see it in your eyes
When and why, and where was paradise?
     Something's been and gone
     When all is said and done; we were wrong
     Was that what it was?
     Was that what it was?

Think again - remember what you said
You'd never leave - if you did I wouldn't care
I never dared to ring you up and ask you why
Too proud to beg or hear you cry
     Something's been and gone
     When all is said and done; we were wrong 
     Was that what it was?
     Was that what it was?

I don't need any more in my life
Did you need something more in your life?
     Was that what it was?
     Was - THAT - what it was?

     Something's been and gone
     When all is said and done; we were wrong 
     Was that what it was?
     Was that what it was?

5. PANINARO (Tennant/Lowe)
-----------
Passion, love, sex, money,
Violence, religion, injustice, death

     Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

Girls, boys, arts, pleasure
Girls, boys, arts, pleasure

     Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

Food, cars, travel, food, cars, travel, travel
New York, New York, New York, 
New York

     Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

Armani, Armani, A-A-Armani, Cinque

     Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh
     Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

Armani, Armani, A-A-Armani, Cinque

     Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh
     Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

(I don't like Country & Western.
 I don't like rock music.
 Ehm, I don't like, I don't like Rockabilly.
 - Rock'n'roll in particular -
 I don't like much, really, do I? [laugh]
 But what I do like, I love passionately)

     Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh
     Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

     Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

You! You're my lover,
You're my hope, you're my dreams, my life
My passion, my love, sex, my money,
Violence, religion, injustice and death

     Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

     Paninaro, (I don't like much, really, do I?) 
     Paninaro, oh oh oh
     Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

     Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

     Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

6. JACK THE LAD (Tennant/Lowe)
---------------
Ooooooh oooooh

Lawrence in the desert, how was he to know
Under so much pressure from the men back home?

Play with fire, you must be mad
Are you only Jack the Lad?
Play with guns, you must be bad
Or hiding something, Jack!

Telling lies in public, breaking codes at home
Underneath the blankets, for another role

Tell these lies, you must be mad
Are you only Jack the Lad?
To feast with panthers every night
You must be careful, Jack!

     Don't let them try to restrain you
     This is your only religion
     Don't let them try to detain you
     You're not the only fool

          We all fall, even Jack the Lad
          We all fall, even Jack the Lad
          Will fall

Philby in the desert
looking for a phone
Waiting on the pavement
for a call from home

Play with fire, you must be mad
Are you only Jack the Lad?
Turn your back on friends you had
They must have hurt you, Jack!

     Don't let them try to restrain you
     This is your only religion
     Don't let them try to detain you
     You're not the only fool

          We all fall, even Jack the Lad
          We all fall, even Jack the Lad

     Don't let them try to restrain you
     This is your only religion
     Don't let them try to detain you
     You're not the only fool

          We all fall, even Jack the Lad
          We all fall, even Jack the Lad
          Will fall...

7. YOU KNOW WHERE YOU WENT WRONG (Tennant/Lowe)
--------------------------------
Two men on the street
Drinking something cheap
No home, no family
It's cold, nowhere to sleep
Passers-by never catch their eye
Anywhere, one man drinks, the other swears

     You know where you went wrong
     You know where you went wrong
     (Aaaah) You know
     You know where you went wrong
     You know where you went wrong
     (Aaaah) You know

The old man can't understand
No one will shake his hand
I gave security, bombs and colour TV
It cost a few lives
Someone's son always dies
No one shakes his hand
He don't understand

     You know where you went wrong
     You know where you went wrong
     (Aaaah) You know
     You know where you went wrong
     You know where you went wrong
     (Aaaah) You know

          This is the history of the world
          Of every boy and every girl
          Who don't understand what's going on anymore
          The history of the world
          Of every boy and every girl
          Who don't understand what's going on anymore 
               (What's going on?)

Two girls have a photograph
One looks, the other laughs
He could have been mine
Why did I change my mind?
Then hands on hips
The other girl says: Admit! Admit!

     You know where you went wrong
     You know where you went wrong
     (Aaaah) You know
     You know where you went wrong
     You know where you went wrong
     (Aaaah) You know

          This is the history of the world (of the world)
          Of every boy and every girl
          Who don't (who don't) understand (understand)
               what's going on anymore (what's going on?)
          The history of the world (Ooooh)
          Of every boy and every girl (Every boy and girl)
          Who don't (who don't) understand (understand)
               what's going on anymore (what's going on?)

     You know where you went wrong
     You know where you went wrong
     (Aaaah) You know
     You know where you went wrong
     You know where you went wrong
     (Aaaah) You know

     (Aaaah)

     You know where you went wrong
     You know where you went wrong
     (Aaaah) You know

     (Aaaah)
     (Aaaah)

     You know where you went wrong
     You know where you went wrong
     (Aaaah) You know
     You know where you went wrong
     You know where you went wrong
     (Aaaah) You know

     You know where you went wrong
     You know where you went wrong
     You know
     You know where you went wrong
     You know where you went wrong
     You know
     You know where you went wrong
     You know where you went wrong
     You know

8. A NEW LIFE (Lowe/Springs/Tennant)
-------------
At night it hits me cold
There's so much more to life than I'll ever know
I look around and I realize
It's time to make a move, though you won't sympathize 
 
Stars collect overhead  
They look down on the channel and our lives grown dead
Cars pass on through the night
How do you get to heaven if you never try?
 
     New life, new love
     Where's the heart I was dreaming of?
     I need a new hope, new dream
     Another heart in a different scene

Make a firm decision, it's time to go
That's for you to find out and for me to know
No more hard times or petty crimes
Forget that life I have left behind

The night goes by
Leaving you behind me, as I fly
Then rise, the day and night sky
How do you get to heaven if you never try?

     New life, new love
     Where's the heart I was dreaming of?
     I need a new hope, new dream
     Another heart in a different scene
 
A new life, it's so hard to find 
A new love, it's so hard to find 
 
The night goes by
Leaving you behind me, as I fly
There lies the day in that sky
How do you get to heaven if you never try?
 
     New life, new love
     Where's the heart I was dreaming of?
     I need a new hope, new dream
     Another heart in a different scene

     New life, new love
     Where's the heart I was dreaming of?
     I need a new hope, new dream
     Another heart in a different scene

9. I WANT A DOG (Tennant/Lowe)
---------------
I want a dog,
A chihuahua
When I get back to my small flat
I want to hear somebody bark
     Oh, you can get lonely

Don't want a cat,
Scratching its claws all over my
Habitat
Giving no love and getting fat
     Oh, (oh oh) you can get lonely
     And a cat's no help with that

(Bulldog, hound, pug, labrador,
 Collie, retriever, Dobermann-pinscher,
 Husky, dalmatian, St. Bernard and dachshund,
 Mongrel, beagle, cocker spaniel)

I want a dog,
To walk in the park
When it gets dark, my dog will bark
At any passers-by
     Oh, (oh oh) you can get lonely
     I want a dog

I want a dog,
A chihuahua
When I get back to my small flat
I want to hear somebody bark
     Oh, (oh oh) you can get lonely

10. DO I HAVE TO? (Tennant/Lowe)
-----------------
I don't care what you've said, and I mean it
I don't care what you've shared, 'cause I've seen it
Who's to judge if you're wrong? This is a bad time
Just as long as you break his heart and not mine

Tell him you're a liar, tell him I'm a saint
Say it's much too early, or just too late
Tell him that you're weak, beg him to be strong
Say you're very sorry but you were wrong

     Do I have to? Don't say!
     Do I need to love you?
     Do I have to? Don't say!
     Do I need to love you?

It's a fatal mistake, and you know it
That you're dying to make; you'll pay for it
It's already too late, go on, admit it

Tell him it's a problem, tell him it's too hard
Say you've phoned your best friend and Scotland Yard
Swear that there'll be murder, tell him that I'm ill
Say you know it's blackmail, but that don't kill

     Do I have to? Don't say!
     Do I need to love you?
     Do I have to? Don't say
     That I need to love you?
     Do I have to? Oh, don't say!
     Do I need to love you?
     Do I have to? Don't say
     Do I need to love you?

I know what you assume about me
I hurt, but do I have to bleed?

     Do I have to? Don't say!
     Do I need to love you?
     Do I have to? Don't say!
     Do I need to love you?

     Do I have to? Don't say!
     Do I need to love you?
     Do I have to? Don't say
     That I need to love you?

     Do I have to?
     Do I have to?
     Don't say
     Do I have to?
     Love you?

11. I GET EXCITED (YOU GET EXCITED TOO) (Tennant/Lowe)
---------------------------------------
     (Excited)
     (Excited)

     (Excited Excited Excited Excited)
     (Excited Excited Excited Excited)

     (I get excited)
     (I get excited)

We're both in the gutter, that's no surprise
What does it matter, when I look in your eyes?
We've lost all our money, we're thrown out of bars
We're lying in the gutter, but we're looking at the stars

     I get excited, you get excited too (Excited) (I get excited)
     I get excited, you get excited too (Excited) (I get excited)

I hear the sound of the subway, the sigh of the heat
The click of the visitors' heels on the street
The rattle of the taxi, the scream of the cars
The clatter of the dustbin and the beat of my heart

     I get excited, you get excited too (Excited) (I get excited)
     I get excited, you get excited too (Excited) (I get excited)
     I don't know why, I don't know why (I get excited)
     I don't know why, I don't know why
     (Excited Excited Excited Excited)
     (Excited Excited Excited Excited)

You're in my soul
My body moves to your control
Baby, I've been thinking about you
All night long, and the neighbours are talking

     I don't know why, I don't know why (Excited) (I get excited)
     I don't know why, I don't know why 
     (Excited) (I get excited)

We're both in the gutter, that's no surprise
What does it matter, when I look in your eyes?
We've lost all our money, we're thrown out of bars
We're lying in the gutter, but we're looking at the stars

     I get excited, you get excited too (Excited) (I get excited)
     I get excited, you get excited too (Excited) (I get excited)
     I don't know why, I don't know why (I get excited)
     I don't know why, I don't know why 
     (Excited Excited Excited Excited)
     (Excited Excited Excited Excited)
     (Ooooooooh)

     I get excited, you get excited too (Excited) (I get excited)
     I get excited, you get excited too (Excited) (I get excited)
     I don't know why, I don't know why (I get excited)
     I don't know why, I don't know why (I get excited)
     I get excited, you get excited too

12. DON JUAN (Tennant/Lowe)
------------
The man who's escorting Don Juan to his bride
Knows he is courting an impudent pride
Think of his jealousy, oh, where will he hide?
The man who's escorting Don Juan to his bride

The man who will cover for Don Juan's old soothsayer
Films for a Warner Brother or Mister Goldwyn-Mayer
Think of his starlet, how much will he pay her?
The man who will cover for Don Juan's old soothsayer

     An impasse has been reached with the teacher of the rich
     To quit would be discreet and swift
     But you know that I can't do that
     It would be a disaster
     It would be a disaster

     I've got this sinking feeling, I'm not dreaming
     We'll be sorry soon

(Hahahahaha)

At the end of the day, when everyone's resigned
To the heart of the matter and the measures in mind
King Zog's back from holiday, Mary Lupescu's grey
And King Alexander is dead in Marseilles

     An impasse has been reached with the teacher of the rich,
     To quit would be discrete and swift
     But you know that I can't do that
     It would be a disaster
     It would be a disaster

     I've got this sinking feeling, I'm not dreaming
     We'll be sorry soon.

(Hahahahaha)

13. THE SOUND OF THE ATOM SPLITTING (12" mix) (Lowe/Tennant/Lipson/Horn)
---------------------------------------------
I hate you
I hate you
Nothing will ever be the same
Oh really
Don't be silly
I told you it was all a game
Whenever I see you or your work
It makes me feel like spitting
What's that noise?
Oh that
We've been expecting it for ages
It's the sound of the atom splitting

He's a villain, 
Him over there
With a stocking on his head
Look, there's another one
They call themselves pinheads
What's that noise over there?
Is it the corrugated iron they're hitting?
No, no, it's perfectly normal
It's just the sound of the atom splitting

Whose side are you on anyway?
Is that some kind of threat?
Well, I suppose it will have to do
As long as you don't make too much mess
And would the last person to leave
- Once you all finish kissing -
Turn the video on to record
You never know what you're missing
Bread and circuses
And maybe later
The sound of the atom splitting

Quiet at the back, please!
No whistling
It's the sound
The sound
The sound of the atom splitting

I hate you
I hate you
Quiet at the back, please!
No whistling

It's the sound
The sound
The sound of the atom splitting

It's the sound
The sound
The sound of the atom splitting

Oh really
Don't be silly
I told you it was all a game

It's the sound
What's that noise?
Quiet at the back, please!

14. ONE OF THE CROWD (Lowe/Tennant)
--------------------
When I go fishing with my rod
I often get that urge
To fall asleep a sleep so deep that
No-one notices me

Don't want anyone to know my name
Don't want to get a fax
Don't want to meet the Royal Family
Just 'cause I've paid my tax

     Don't wanna be seen or heard
     Don't want to shout out loud
     I want to be part of the herd
     One of the crowd

Dressing individually doesn't impress me
I think that it's pathetic
Following fashion, I just like it
Don't I?

     Don't wanna be seen or heard
     Don't want to shout out loud
     I want to be part of the herd
     One of the crowd

          (One of the crowd)
          (One of the crowd)

Fishing
Fishing

I never fight, but every night
I think it's gonna be alright
I think I might think in spite of
Every - thing

     Don't wanna be seen or heard
     Don't want to shout out loud
     I want to be part of the herd
     One of the crowd

     One of the crowd
     One of the crowd
     One of the crowd
     One of the crowd

     One of the crowd

          (One of the crowd)
Fishing
          (One of the crowd)

15. YOUR FUNNY UNCLE (Tennant/Lowe)
--------------------
A windy day
The clouds in slow formation
Not far away
A final destination
One mother's son
His father's distant gaze, regretting
Where they went wrong
He always found it too upsetting

Me and my friend
We lived our lives completely
From start to end
You and your friend, so sweetly
With strength and pride
In spite of everything, and swimming
Against the tide
To obstinately hope of winning

And at the end
Your funny uncle staring
At all your friends
With military bearing
And stopped to stand
To smile and speak of you directly
Goodbye, shake hands
Like you did everything correctly

To wipe away the tears
No more pain, no fear
No sorrow or dying
No waiting or crying
These former things have passed away
Another life begins today

16. IT MUST BE OBVIOUS (Tennant/Lowe)
----------------------
Are you feeling alright?
It's easy, we've been there before
But it feels like the flight
Of the von Trapps, does that mean it's war?
Oh no,
From my head to my toes
I'm in love with you
Do you think it shows?

We're meant to be friends
That's what it says in the script
Is it really the end
If, sometimes, I stray just a bit?
Oh no,
It should be poetry, not prose
I'm in love with you
Do you think it shows?

     And everyone knows when they look at us
     'Course they do, it must be obvious
     I never told you, now I suppose
     That you're the only one who doesn't know

You were different when
We met in an ordinary way
I didn't intend
To interrupt your own shadowplay
Oh no,
I won't upset the status quo
I'm in love with you
Do you think it shows?

     And everyone knows when they look at us
     'Course they do, it must be obvious
     You've never asked me, and I'm surprised
     That you're the only one who hasn't tried

     Everyone knows when they look at us
     'Course they do, it must be obvious
     I never asked you, now I suppose
     That you're the only one who doesn't know

Aah
When they look at us
It must be obvious
Oooh

17. WE ALL FEEL BETTER IN THE DARK (Tennant/Lowe)
----------------------------------
(The secrets of sexual attraction)

(Get down get down get down get down
 get down get down get down get down)

The music's pumping through me, I rush into the crowd
The sweat is pouring off me, the beat is dead loud
I want someone to love me, and I know I want it now
These feelings that I'm feeling must be satisfied somehow
I want it, I want it, you know I really want it!
I want it, I want it, you know I really want it!
I want it, I want it, you know I really want it!

     We all feel better in the dark
     We all feel better in the dark
(Get down get down get down get down
 get down get down get down get down - Oooh)

My body surges with energy, shivers down my spine
I look deep into your eyes, and I know that you'll be mine
(Pump that bass Pu-Pump that bass
 Pump that bass Pu-Pump that bass
 Pump that bass Pu-Pump that bass
 Pump that bass Pu-Pump that bass - Aah
 Pump that bass Pu-Pump that bass   (Yeah  yeah)
 Pump that bass Pu-Pump that bass   (Yeah  yeah)
 Pump that bass Pu-Pump that bass   (Yeah  yeah)
 Pump that bass Pu-Pump that bass   (Yeah  yeah))
(Yeeaaaaaah)

     We all feel better in the dark
(Get down get down get down get down
 get down get down get down get down)
     We all feel better in the dark
(Get down get down get down get down
 get down get down get down get down)

The music's pumping through me, I rush into the crowd
The sweat is pouring off me, the beat is dead loud
I want someone to love me, and I know I want it now
These feelings that I'm feeling must be satisfied somehow
You want it, you want it, you know you really want it!
You want it, you want it, you know you really want it!

I want it, I want it, you know I really want it!

     We all feel better in the dark
(Get down get down get down get down
 get down get down get down get down)
     We all feel better in the dark (Oooh)

     We all feel better in the dark

18. BET SHE'S NOT YOUR GIRLFRIEND (Tennant/Lowe)
---------------------------------
(Whisper whisper whisper whisper)
Whisper 'round the town, 
'cause you're my friend and that's the end
For you're the only one in town
Who they will beg to hang around with
You're so beautiful and calm
But with an attitude that says:
"Hands-off, you're just not good enough"

Every boy and man feeling lonely
Can't understand why you'd be with me
Furthermore, we laugh and we draw 
More attention everyday, so they say: 

     (Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
     (Oh oh oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy
     (Oh oh oh Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
     (Oh oh oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy

Well, that says maybe, in a way, but it's okay
We are touche', while they stare in front of us
They draw away, as if to say:
"Who are these people anyway?
How dare they confront us?"

Every boy and man feeling lonely
Can't understand why you'd be with me
Furthermore, we laugh and we draw 
More attention everyday, so they say: 

     (Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
     (Oh oh oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy
     (Oh oh oh Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
     (Oh oh oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy

Oh no no no
Oh no no no
(Girlfriend Oh oh oh Girlfriend
 Oh oh oh Girlfriend Oh oh oh Girlfriend)

I'd rather die, than satisfy their curiousity
I'm kind of shy and dry, and verging on ugly
They wonder what that I have got, that they have not
They'll never understand that none of that matters

Every boy and man feeling lonely
Can't understand why you'd be with me
Furthermore, we laugh and we draw 
More attention everyday, so they say: 

     (Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
     (Oh oh oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy
     (Oh oh oh Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
     (Oh oh oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy

(Oh oh oh Girlfriend Oh oh oh Girlfriend 
Oh oh oh Girlfriend)
     Bet she's not your, bet she's not your,
     Bet she's not your,bet she's not your,
(Oh oh oh Girlfriend)
     Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no

     (Oh oh oh Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend
     (Oh oh oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy
     (Oh oh oh Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend
     (Oh oh oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy

     Bet she's not your girlfriend

19. LOSING MY MIND (Sondheim)
------------------
The sun comes up - I think about you
The coffee cup - I think about you
I want you so, it's like I'm losing my mind

The morning ends - I think about you
I talk to friends and think about you
And do they know it's like I'm losing my mind?

All afternoon doing every little chore
The thought of you stays bright
Sometimes I stand in the middle of the floor
Not going left - not going right

     I dim the lights and think about you
     Spend sleepless nights to think about you
     You said you loved me, or were you just being kind?
     Or am I losing
     My mind?

All afternoon doing every little chore

     Or am I losing my mind?

     Losing my mind?

     You said you loved me, or were you just being kind?
     Or am I losing my mind?

     Were you just being kind?
     Or am I losing my mind?
     Losing my mind?
     Losing my mind?

21. MISERABLISM (Tennant/Lowe)
---------------
It seems to me there's something serious beginning
A new approach found to the meaning of life
Deny that happiness is open as an option
And disappointment disappears over night

Say that love is an impossible dream
Face the facts, that's what it's always been
Relax, what you see is what you've seen
What you get, is a new philosophy

(That's what you got, that's what you get)
(That's what you got, that's what you get)

     Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't
     Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't

Meanwhile your life is still directed as a drama
With realism on the sparsest of sets
Every performance tends to reach the same conclusion
No happy endings but a message to depress
Saying life is an impossible scheme
That's the point of this philosophy

     Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't
     Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't

But if is wasn't, and isn't were
You can't be sure, but you might find ecstasy

(Oh no)

Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning
     (get get get)
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth
You know, life is an impossible scheme
And love an imperceptible dream

(That's what you got, that's what you get)
(That's what you got, that's what you get)

     Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't
     Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't
     Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't
     Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't
     Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't
     Miserablism, is is and isn't isn't
     Miserable

22. HEY, HEADMASTER (Tennant/Lowe)
-------------------
Hey, Headmaster, what's the matter with you?
Why're you always so serious, why so blue?
All the kids in the school have seen you
Being patient with the boys who fool you
When you used to hit them with your ruler
So independent too
Hey, Headmaster, what's the matter with you?

There's a crisis rumoured in the school
The boys have cut their hair short to look cool
Examination time is drawing near
Disintegration of the football team
No one seems to want to play for real
In classroom, club or pool
Hey, Headmaster, what're you gonna do?

There's an invitation in the post
To a reading party on the coast
Pack your bags up, you old bibliophile
Get together with your friends, who will
Give you time to think and time to kill
With independent hosts
Hey, Headmaster, aren't you gonna go?
Hey, Headmaster, aren't you gonna go?

23. WHAT KEEPS MANKIND ALIVE? (Brecht/Weill)
-----------------------------
You gentlemen who think you have a mission
To purge us of the seven deadly sins
Should first sort out the basic food position
Then start your preaching, that's where it begins

You lot, who preach restraint and watch your waist as well
Should learn for all time how the world is run
However much you twist, whatever lies you tell
Food is the first thing, morals follow on

     So first make sure that those, who now are starving
     Get proper helpings, when we all start carving

          What keeps mankind alive, the fact that millions
          Are daily tortured, stifled, punished, silenced, oppressed
          Mankind can keep alive, thanks to its brilliance
          At keeping its humanity repressed
          For once, you must not try to shirk the facts:
          Mankind is kept alive by bestial acts.

You say the girls may strip with your permission (whoa!)
You draw the line dividing art from sin
So first sort out the basic food position
Then start your preaching, that's where it begins

You lot, who bank on your desires and our disgust
Should learn for all time how the world is run
Whatever lies you tell, however much you twist
Food is the first thing, morals follow on

     So first make sure that those, who now are starving
     Get proper helpings, when we all start carving

          What keeps mankind alive, the fact that millions
          Are daily tortured, stifled, punished, silenced, oppressed
          Mankind can keep alive, thanks to its brilliance
          At keeping its humanity repressed
          For once, you must not try to shirk the facts
          Mankind is kept alive by bestial acts

          Mankind can keep alive, thanks to its brilliance
          At keeping its humanity repressed
          For once, you must not try to shirk the facts:
          Mankind is kept alive by bestial acts

24. SHAMELESS (Tennant/Lowe)
-------------
(Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah ooh ah ooh) [Hello]
(Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah ooh ah ooh) 
(Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah ooh ah ooh)
(Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah ooh ah ooh) [Dahhhling - mmwah!]
[How dare you? Do you know who I am?]
[You look fabulous! - mmwah!]

I know what you think
It's clear as mud in your eyes
We're the plastic poseurs and prostitutes
You've obviously come to despise

But you don't know nothing
You're not hot enough to matter
You don't understand it's the glamorous life
A dream that no one can shatter
 
     We're shameless
     We will do anything
     To get our fifteen minutes of fame
     We have no integrity
     We're ready to crawl
     To obtain celebrity
     We'll do anything at all

I'm ambitious
Believe me, I'm going to be big
I'm a slave to glamour
Applause and clamour
My make-up, my wardrobe, my wigs

Don't call me pathetic
I'm harder than you'll ever guess
Relentlessly tough, for when the going gets rough
The tough get their picture in the press

     We're shameless
     We will do anything
     To get our fifteen minutes of fame
     We have no integrity
     We're ready to crawl
     To obtain celebrity
     We'll do anything at all

(Anything, anything, anything at all)
(We'll do anything, anything, anything at all)
(We'll do anything, anything, anything at all)
(We'll do anything, anything, anything at all)
[It's going perfectly alright]
[How dare you? Do you know who I am?]
[It's an absolute disgrace]

Tell me you love me
Admit it, you're really impressed
Would it not amuse you
For me to seduce you
Have you ever seen me undressed?

     We're shameless
     We will do anything
     To get our fifteen minutes of fame (Give me fifteen minutes)
     We have no integrity
     We're ready to crawl
     To obtain celebrity
     We'll do anything at all

     We're shameless
     We will do anything
     To get our fifteen minutes of fame (Give me fifteen minutes)
     We have no integrity
     We're ready to crawl to obtain celebrity
     We'll do anything 
     With anyone
     Go absolutely anywhere
     For anything
     At all

(Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah ooh ah ooh)  [I'm terribly sorry]
(Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah ooh ah ooh) 
(Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah ooh ah ooh) 
(Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah ooh ah ooh) 
(Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah ooh ah ooh) 
(Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah ooh ah ooh) 
(Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah ooh ah ooh) 
(Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah ooh ah ooh) 

25. TOO MANY PEOPLE (Tennant/Lowe)
-------------------
     I sometimes think that I'm too many people
     Too many people, too many people
     I sometimes think that I'm too many people
     Too many people, too many people at once

The husband or the hedonist
The businessman or the communist
The artist or the showbiz creep
The lover or the nervous geek
The question of identity is one that's always haunted me
Whoever I decide to be depends on who is with me

     I sometimes think that I'm too many people
     Too many people, too many people
     I sometimes think that I'm too many people
     Too many people, too many people at once

The tactless twit putting his foot in it
Or the sensitive soul who's a role model
The urban jet setter - never at home
Or the country recluse - just leave me alone
Extrovert or introvert
Love is kind, and love hurts
Rebellion or conformity
What is my identity?

     I sometimes think that I'm too many people
     Too many people, too many people
     I sometimes think that I'm too many people
     Too many people, too many people at once

The intellectual and bon-viveur
or the naive simpleton, so immature
A devoted son and family man
Or the wicked uncle who doesn't give a damn
How often these have tempted me
The question of identity depends on what I'm meant to be

     I sometimes think that I'm too many people
     Too many people, too many people
     I sometimes think that I'm too many people
     Too many people, too many people at once

     I sometimes think that I'm too many people
     Too many people, too many people
     I sometimes think that I'm too many people
     Too many people, too many people at once

26. VIOLENCE (hacienda version) (Tennant/Lowe)
-------------------------------
The sons and brothers, fighting for another cause
Anything to give their lives some meaning
Busy with their guns and dreaming
Far away from here
Said they would act (said they would act)
In self-defense

And all the others, running 'round so hot and bothered
Anything to give their lives some meaning
In the evening
Running around with guns and
Said they would act (said they would act)
in self-defense
With violence

     Violence breeds
     Violence
     (Ooh yeah, ooh yeah)
     Violence breeds
     Violence
     (Ooh yeah, violence breeds violence)
     (Ooh yeah, breeds yeah, breeds yeah)
     (Ooh yeah, ooh yeah)

The son and brother, when he gets home
He gives someone some love
And mutters: "Woman, (mutters woman)
You'll never understand (never understand)
I did what I said (did what I said)
In self-defense
With violence"

     Violence breeds
     Violence
     (Ooh yeah, ooh yeah)
     Violence breeds
     Violence
     (Ooh yeah, ooh yeah)

     (Ooh yeah, violence)
     (Ooh yeah, violence breeds violence)

27. DECADENCE (Tennant/Lowe)
-------------
You don't care about nothing
So you don't care about love
If you want me to come back
You'd better change

You'd better give up talking about money
Begin thinking of love
If you want me to come back
You'd better change

     You'd better change for the better
     It cost more than dollars and cents
     Take it from me there's - got to be
     An end to this decadence
     This decadence

You don't care about people
So you don't care about pain
If you want me to come back
You'd better change

     You'd better change for the better
     Start using some common sense
     Take it from me there's - got to be
     An end to this decadence

     For decadence - is fatal
     It's the beginning of the end
     In self-defense
     I cannot recommend
     This decadence

You don't care about real life
You're too distant and strange
If you want me to come back

     You'd better change for the better
     It may be rather intense
     Stop this caprice, you've got to cease 
     This fin-de-siecle pretence

     For decadence - is fatal
     It's the beginning of the end
     In consequence
     I cannot recommend
     This decadence
     This decadence
     This decadence
     This decadence

28. IF LOVE WERE ALL (Coward)
--------------------
I believe in doing what I can
In crying when I must
In laughing when I choose

     Hey ho if love were all
     I should be lonely

I believe the more you love a man
The more you give your trust
The more you're bound to lose
Although when shadows fall
I think if only
Somebody splendid really needed me
Someone affectionate and dear
Chaos would be ended if I knew that he
Wanted to have me near
But I believe that since my life began
The most I've had is just a talent to amuse
     Hey ho if love were all
     Hey ho if love were all
