Track Name: Non Committal
You know your love is so good
I don’t treat you like I should
I’m not the guy I used to be
You really can’t rely on me…….

It’s like I’m built on shifting sand
It’s like I’m built on shifting sand
It’s like I’m built on shifting sand
Spose I’m non-committal

I know you’ve got your eye on me
But I’ve got no stability
Commitment always makes me run
Although we’ve had a lot of fun….

It’s like I’m built on shifting sand
It’s like I’m built on shifting sand
It’s like I’m built on shifting sand
Spose I’m non-committal

I like to be the soul of the party
Walk into a room with you beside me
But my eyes are always wandering around…..

Looks like the sands are shifting
Looks like the sands are shifting

I really don’t think that I’m mean
You never know where I have been
You and me are very close
But time has gone and now we’re toast!!!!!

It’s like I’m built on shifting sand
It’s like I’m built on shifting sand
It’s like I’m built on shifting sand
Spose I’m non-committal

I like to be the soul of the party
Walk into a room with you beside me
But my eyes are always wandering around…..

It’s like I’m built on shifting sand
It’s like I’m built on shifting sand
It’s like I’m built on shifting sand
Spose I’m non-committal
Track Name: Late Taxi Home
I knew the first time I saw you mm mm mm mm
I knew the first time I saw you mm mm mm mm

I knew the first time I saw you
I knew that I’d be untrue
Collecting my coat before you
In the cloakroom queue

I had a girl to go home to
I had a taxi on the street
But you turned and raised an eyebrow
And I felt your body heat

Then you started talking
Taxi gone I started walking
Heading back to your place
And me heading for, for disgrace

Now I’m a long way from perfect
But there’s just so much I can take
And when I look into the face of perfection
I can take the fall from grace
Yeah……….Yeah…..

You slipped into the bathroom
And so I got on the phone
I said I’m running late don’t wait up
I’ll take a late taxi home

I’ll take a late taxi home
I’ll take a late late taxi home
Yeah---yeah--- yeah--- yeah

You wore the latest fashion
And we got down to passion
I was dazzled by the way that you looked
I knew then that I was totally hooked
I put off taking that taxi
And turning my key in the door
It was a fatal hesitation
Next thing it was half past four

I’ll take a late taxi home
I’ll take a late late taxi home
I’ll take a late taxi home
Still waiting for a taxi home
Still waiting for a taxi home
Still waiting for a taxi ho home
Still waiting for a taxi ho home
Still waiting for a taxi home!!!

So I started walking……
Track Name: Bitchin'
Wooh!....Ooh!....Ooh!
Wooh!....Ooh!....Ooh!

I keep reflecting on life as I know it
Many discussions, am I about to blow it
People are talking; I don’t hear what they’re saying
The guy across from me uttered a blasphemy!

Bitchin’
Everybody’s out there
Bitchin’ ……..oh yeah!

Wooh!....Ooh!....Ooh!
Wooh!....Ooh!....Ooh!

The train is late again, gotta make up time
No seats available I’ll have to stand in line
The answers clear to me change my reality
and in the restaurant car a married couple are!!
Bitchin’
Looks like their feet are itchin’
We’ve gotta stop this bitchin’
…hmmm……hmmm…..hmmmm….etc..
Wooh!....Ooh!....Ooh!
Wooh!....Ooh!....Ooh!

Bitchin’
Everybody’s out there
Bitchin’ ……..oh yeah!
Bitchin’
We’ve gotta stop this bitchin’
Bitchin’

I think I’d like to get on a plane
Before I go insane
I think I’d better got off this train
I’ve spent too many days in the rain

Bitchin’ Bitchin’ Bitchin’ Bitchin’

Bitchin’ Bitchin’ Bitchin’ Bitchin’
There’s somebody stitching.. Bitchin’
Business men are pitching…. Bitchin’
There’s someone getting ditched….. Bitchin’
There’s someone getting hitched….. Bitchin’
A guy with earphones hissing…….. Bitchin’
Two people who should not be kissing.. Bitchin’
How can I stop this bitchin’
I gotta stop this bitchin’
Track Name: Latino
Okay you’ve had your fun
It’s time to run, you’re gonna move your feet
Get into this beat
I’ll help you on your way, I hear what you say
I know…..oh! oh!

I Wanna dance all night under fading moonlight
Maybe shimmy with each of the girls on the beach
On her shoulder a rose tattoo sand between her t…..o…..oes!

I’m gonna learn to dance maybe have a romance
Take coffee in a square live without a care
Find my feet get in-to the beat and take a cha…ance!

Okay you’ve done your time , leave my corona and lime
You’re going out that door, I’ve heard it all before
I’m gonna start a new so you know what you can do….oo!

I’m gonna learn to dance maybe have a romance
Take coffee in a square live without a care
Find my feet get in-to the beat and take a cha…ance!
I’m gonna learn to dance maybe have a romance
Take coffee in a square live without a care
Find my feet get in-to the beat and take a cha…ance!

I’m gonna make a change before I get older gonna find the groove and keep it smooth learn to dance and move like Gloria Estefan-nnn
Sounds good to me oh…yeah!
I’m going down to Rio
Where I’ll join a trio
And blare my horn!
Like a man reborn.

I’m gonna learn to dance maybe have a romance
Take coffee in a square live without a care
Find my feet get in-to the beat and take a cha…ance!

Track Name: Bad Salad
I know there’s a place
I know there’s a time
It’s not always easy to find the rhythm or rhyme

I know that we should
If only we could
Discuss it together instead of the weather
It’s no good just thinking we have to start speaking next time

We never had the time for each other
To say whatever made us feel better
The time has gone to get back together it’s true

The children are fine
They’re both yours and mine
Both so much older respectful and bolder
They have their own places they’ve looked at our faces
and both want us happy I’m sure……..it’s time….

We never had the time for each other
To say whatever made us feel better
To talk of us instead of the others we knew
We never have the time any longer to say the words that made us feel stronger now we’ve arrived together but separate we two.

We never had the time for each other
To say whatever made us feel better
To talk of us instead of the others we knew

It hurts through and through
Whatever we do
No more indecision we both know what we have to do.
Track Name: No Smoke
I’ve had enough of this routine mm mm mm mm
I can never tell where you’ve been mm mm mm mm
But I know where you’ve been seen mm mm mm mm
You’re acting like you’re still eighteen

There’s no smoke without fire
There’s no smoke without fire
Sweet smooth words of a liar
Only gonna fan the flame—higher ---- whistle

I find it hard to believe mm mm mm mm
Think I’m so naïve? mm mm mm mm
What a tangled web we weave mm mm mm mm
Who you trying to deceive

There’s no smoke without fire
There’s no smoke without fire
Sweet smooth words of a liar
Only gonna fan the flame-- higher

I’m going back to my other love my old guitar
You’re going back to your Mother love so Au Revoir
You lose out to my other love music by far
I’ll play my guitar- play my guitar

There’s no smoke without fire
Sweet smooth words of a liar
Only gonna fan the flame higher-- higher –higher

I’m going back to my other love my old guitar
You’re going back to your Mother love so Au Revoir
You lose out to my other love music by far
I’ll play my guitar- play my guitar

There’s no smoke without fire
Sweet smooth words of a liar
Only gonna fan the flame higher
Only gonna fan the flame higher
Fire….fire….fire…fire
Track Name: Whatever Went Down
Whispers………..

Hi Babe I’m back!

You ask me do I care, well I think that’s unfair
For all the things I do for you
You should know now my love is true
You sometimes say I’m weak
You stifle me so I can’t speak
My love for you is never ending
Not sure of these vibes you’re sending

I will not defaulter
I’ll give consistent affirmation
On my obligations
Under cross-examination

There you go again I think I’m needing Zen
Your confidence it needs a boosting
There’s nothing I can see you’re losing
Why are you unsure
You’re beautiful and that’s for sure
I’m with you till the end
There’s nothing broke that needs to mend

I will not defaulter
I’l give consistent affirmation
On my obligations
Under cross-examination
I will not defaulter
I promise yer!! on my obligations
whatever went down before

I’ve come to my conclusion
To shatter your illusion
You don’t believe a word I’m saying
You’ve got to know that I am staying

I will not defaulter
I’ll give consistent affirmation
On my obligations
Under cross-examination
I will not defaulter
I’ll give consistent affirmation
On-my-obligations
Under cross examination

I will not defaulter
I promise yer
On my obligations
whatever went down before
whatever went down before
whatever went down before
whatever went down before

whispers…….
Track Name: Fool
I try and call you up
But you’re never home
I think I’d better stop
I know I’m left here on my own

I sometimes leave a message
You don’t return my call
You’ve lifted up a drawbridge
And I can’t scale the wall

I’m a fool I know
It’s starting to show
I try and track you down but you’re never in town
It’s time that I moved on
I know that you’ve gone……
I thought you were the one
On whom I could rely
Thought you were out with the girls
When you were out with a guy
I’m fed up staying at home
On my own…..

It’s time that I moved on
Open my eyes to the view
Such a lovely landscape without you…..
Don’t you worry about me
Plenty more fish in the sea
Take my net and cast it into the endless blue

I’m a fool I know
It’s starting to show
I try and track you down but you’re never in town
It’s time that I moved on
I know that you’ve gone……
I thought you were the one
On whom I could rely
Thought you were out with the girls
When you were out with a guy
I’m fed up staying at home
On my own…..

I sit at home contemplating
Drive in my car
I’m fed up waiting
I’ve been there once before
I see him at your door!!!

I’m a fool I know
It’s starting to show
I try and track you down but you’re never in town
It’s time that I moved on
I know that you’ve gone……
I thought you were the one
On whom I could rely
Thought you were out with the girls
When you were out with a guy
I’m fed up staying at home
On my own…..
Cha Cha Cha, Cha Cha Cha Cha Cha!!
Track Name: Shake My MoneyTree
Got no money and life is a drag
Penny pinching and poncing a fag
Who gives a shit about austerity?
Food on the table 1st priority
But there’s something I can do

I can go outside and shake my money tree
See the cash cascade and fall so easily
I can go outside and shake my money tree
Cash cascading just for me
Go outside and shake my money shake my money tree……

Feel at home drinking Dom Perignon
I go showroom, she goes down the salon
I buy the car, she finds a new dress
Things are changing we have lots of finesse
But the neighbours aren’t impressed

I'll go outside and shake my money tree
See the cash cascade and fall so easily
I can go outside and shake my money tree
Cash cascading just for me
Go outside and shake my money tree……

Shake shake shake shake…..my money tree
Shake shake shake shake…..my money tree
Shake my money tree

Lots of cash fancy cars and a suit
Upmarket shopping filling the boot
There is nothing I cannot afford
There is nowhere that remains unexplored
But the neighbours think I’m a fraud

When I’m outside shaking my money tree
Cash cascading down so readily
I can go outside and shake my money tree
Cash cascading just for me
Shake my money shake my money tree……

I can go outside and shake my money tree
See the cash cascade and fall so easily
I can go outside and shake my money tree
Cash cascading just for me
Go outside and shake my money tree……
Track Name: Backstabber
When you hear this I bet you agree
For some people this comes naturally
They pretend they’re your friend
And pat you on the back while all the time
They’re trying to get you the sack

You know who I mean you even know their name
They chat in your team but they’re not the same
When your back is turned they slip through that door
And that’s the time they’re not friends anymore

There’s no glamour, you’re just a backstabber
There’s no glamour, you’re just a backstabber

Your ears start burning you feel the pain
That jealous streak has gone and hit them again
They’re in there busy trying to mow you down
While all the time it’s them that looks like a clown
It’s hard enough just to go to work
The last thing you need is have to work with a jerk
They’ve got no friends it’s true I suppose
The only cure is a punch on the nose

There’s no glamour, you’re just a backstabber
There’s no glamour, you’re just a backstabber
There’s no glamour, there’s no fancy grammar

You have to smile cos they’re so phoney
Everyone knows they’re sad and lonely
Just carry on you’re doing fine
May you flourish while they decline

There’s no glamour, there’s no fancy grammar
There’s no manners there’s only snakes and ladders
There’s no glamour, there’s no fancy grammar
There’s no manners there’s only snakes and ladders
