Only joking

Keeping us together
Not your girlfriend



Only joking
(S. Rhatigan/J. Morrison) Copyright Control

Remember I made you eat crab apple
      and you were sick for a week
then I stuck your sucky up the chimney
      till you cried for a week
then I killed your canary with the hair dryer
      and kicked you just to see you bruise
purple and blue

I was only joking my dear
didn't mean to hurt you all those years
thought that they were really laughter tears
I was only joking my dear
Oh dear

Remeber I told everyone you went all the way
   with that fella from Artane
and all the blokes called you Seven Stars
   when we were on our way to Mass with Ma
then to make matters worse when you blushed
   I called you beetrout and tomato head
purple and red

I was only joking my dear
didn't mean to hurt you all these years
thought that they were really laughter tears
I was only joking my dear

Remember I borrowed your favorite jeans
      took them in and cut them at the seams
            so they'd fit me
You went ballistic when I called your boyfriend
      Chancre head and made ashtrays from your
            Bread records...
Oh well, what the hell, you got your own back
purple and black

I was only joking my dear
didn't mean to hurt you all these years
thought that they were really laughter tears
I was only joking my dear

I WAS ONLY JOKING MY DEAR
didn't mean to hurt you all those years
thought that they were really laughter tears
I was only joking my dear

OH DEAR.......

Traffic

Scarlet for the girl
staving off the tummy wolf
rumage through the rubbish for a scrummy little tit-bit
can't afford to nit pick
punkapopalyptic
pouting for the punters putting on some lipsticky
wise cracking assholes
widen cracks in your soul
wide enough to drive a whole lorry load of turkeys home
to roost, before the roasting traffic jams
and tarmacadam pirates
soak up all the slack

I can do without that
I can do without it
I can do without all this shit
it really is a pain in the ass
I can do without that
I can do without
I can do without all this
it really is....

Sickened for the man
minced up in the gristle grinder
splinters in your pasty and an advert for a panty-liner
segue to the sarcy DJ chat
riding on the fortunes of another bodies back
sorry for myself
mining for some inspiration
sucked into the engine purring plunging
carbon poisins puking carconogenic crap

I can do without that

Depth charge, heart attack,
jack knife, head on crash,
pop star, lipstick, metal, feathers
turkey gibblets
blocking every pass
our trusty DJ laughs
'this is for you if you're fowled up in the tail-back'

I can do without that

Macho muck savages exposing their back passages
I can do without
Free-basing Freemasons flexing moral muscle
I can do without.......

Keeping us together

Filthy newsday
Filthy weather
Filthy thoughts keeping us together
Filthy minds
Filthy wishes
Filthy dreams sink with filthy dishes

While all around you falls apart
Keeping us together
So I work my fingers to the bone
Keeping us together

Spinning circles, spinning lines
Spinning crows feet around your eyes
Spinning tops, spinning tales
Watch your life spinning down the drain

I'll go on fighting for the cause
Keeping us together
So I'll work my fingers to the bone
Keeping us together

Reach across, the great divide
We'll be together side by side
Won't take so long
You'll find me there
If I could hold my breath another minute, I would,
and never want it back

Rock the boat, rock the Kasbah
Rock my world, I won't falter
Take me home, light the candles
Lighten my load when it's too hard to handle

I'll go on fighting for the cause
Keeping us together
And I'll work my fingers to the bone
Keeping us together

Not your girlfriend
(S. Rhatigan/P. Thornally) Copyright Control/BMG Music

Now I'm not your girlfriend
not the one to hold you
not the one to hold you up
not the one to hold you down
not the one to make you
not the one to make you think
not the one to make you dinner
not the one to make you quiver
now I'm not your girlfriend
not yours

Not the one who's there
not the one who's there after
not the one in the next chapter
not the one you want
not the one who wanted two
not the one who'll see you through
not the one who'll see through you
not the one you'll lie to
not the one who'll lie for you
not the one who's lying in your arms

Now I'm not your girlfriend not your girlfriend that is fine
Now I'm not your girlfriend I just hope you realise
If I'm not your's, you're not mine...

Not the one you'll keep
not the one to keep you waiting
not the one you're over-rating
not the back you'll scratch
not the monkey on your back
not the one you're giving presents
not the one who's past forgiveness
not the one you're tied to
not the one who'll tire you
not the one who's trying just too hard

Now I'm not your girlfriend not your girlfriend that is fine
Now I'm not your girlfriend I just hope you realise
If I'm not your's, you're not mine

I'll be the one whose laughter rings on past our time
I'll be the one whose picture reminds you of better times

Now I'm not your girlfriend not your girlfriend that is fine
Now I'm not your girlfriend I just hope you realise
If I'm not your's, you're not mine.....
