Текст песни:

This place was once a home,
But now you're gone.
Gone like the sun,
You took away,
It was coming so they say.

This boy and his heavy heart,
Were feeling small.
Kicking around the leaves,
It seems,
We're so vacant after all.

There's nothing more to say,
Let me sleep these dreams away,

We'll check out soon.
Me and the Belle,
She knows me so well,
She don't want my soul,
She's not in control.
Oh, find me place,
A discounted space,
A hole in the ground,
Nobody's favourite now.

This night,
This pretty light,
With my best friends.
Keeping the hounding dogs away,
From my window night and day.

This place was once a home
But now it's still
All of the stars are sleeping low
On my broken windowsill

Won't you let me be
Just the old has-beens and me

I'll check out soon
Rolling in style
Be gone for a while
A million and one
Has-beens in the sun
Pretending to care
Going nowhere
Floating around
Nobody's favourite now

Well there's nothing more to say
Let me sleep these dreams away

And won't you let me be
Just the old has-beens and me

We'll check out soon
Rolling in style
Be gone for a while
A million and one
Has-beens in the sun
Pretending to care
Oh going nowhere
Just floating around
Nobody's favourite... now

  • There’s a snakeskin bedroom Bang in the middle Of a funny little place called Hell, oh well Everybody there’s got trouble by the dozen It’s a lonely little place to dwell Hope I don’t make the trip through the floor You told me once «I want it but you wanted it more» I know kung fu you know nothing But together we can make it real, good deal Kicking our own way out of every prison With my brains and your high heels Love your myth coupled with your vast ocean Take my eyes as the prize for your devotion Oh take me to El Ray I got this real need to pray Come find me where the vampires All keep their heads on display I’m a new man living in a old skin I’ve been dead to you ever since Berlin Oh teacher I’m restless just say the word And I’ll be blameless Make me a saint I’ll be the voice of restraint I’ll take their bullwhips and stones Without a hint of complaint I met God in Dogtown Isn’t it a funny thing to know you’ve died? Dove’s cried Angels wept just as if I was a brother And sang the blues for my bride I’ve been keeping time in a skeleton soul band Don’t it make your heart just bleed? Indeed Keeping my nose clean hoping I can crash land Back where I’ve got mouths to feed I’ll be home once I’ve paid for my confusion You’ll see me in the fires Of your own disillusion
  • Well I was chasing down flies and shooting up women Trying to get the whole thing straight in my head Lookin for a girl who’d come with me swimming And come and play tunes at the end of my bed And all the hardmen were drinkin down petrol Bamming up the girls when in came the law Heading for the door and getting tongue tied When they asked me what exactly I saw Chorus: So I’ll get some Monte Christo’s And we can all go see the band Well I may not be a looker yeah But I’ll help you any way I can Back at my room I was making me nervous Watching TV and picking my feet Wishing I was pretty and burning my shoes And wishing for once I’d kept the receipt I called myself and wondered out loud Tried to get the whole thing straight in my head I left the tape running and played it back Twice but I couldn’t make sense of what I had said Chorus Bridge: Well it may not make you handsome And it may not even make you feel aliiiiiiive You may not have the ransom But you can always count on this It’s him and them and she and me And sick and muddy, everybody Alt Chorus: So you can bring y 124a our wasters banjo Bring yer sister and her friend Diane Well I may not have a big boys pistol But I’ll help them any way I can Alt Chorus 2: And you can call me Cinderella! You can make me your best man Well you may be a right old queen But I’ll help you any way I can
  • I heard the time just slips from your sugarplum lips So I go there just to watch it fall And then my jaw just drops when your cherry lolly pops I get nervous when you bounce my ball I get the strangest sense we were lovers, past tense Like a dog in heat I just can’t be indiscreet And when I see you there I whisper my prayer so sweet I’m getting shaky on my feet, I’m incomplete I’ll be your one man band, I’ll be at your command Just say the word and I’ll be your renaissance man I swear I’ll go where you don’t dare I’ll bury this affair deep down in Sugartown I heard your glass hips swayed while the jitterbugs played Every man was on his bended knee And all my hopes got smashed as my nerve just crashed I was as heavy as a boy could be I get the strangest sense we were lovers, past tense Like a dog in heat I just can’t be indiscreet And when I see you there I whisper my prayer so sweet I’m getting shaky on my feet, I’m incomplete And if you just can’t do me right Then honey please do me wrong I’ll be your one man band, I’ll be at your command Just say the word and I’ll be your renaissance man I swear I’ll go where you don’t dare I’ll bury this affair deep down in Sugartown Do do oh oh Do do oh oh Do do oh And if you just can’t do me right Honey please do me wrong I’ll be your one man band, I’ll be at your command Just say the word and I’ll be your renaissance man I swear I’ll go where you don’t dare I’ll bury this affair deep down in Sugartown Deep down in Sugartown Deep down in Sugartown Deep down in Sugartown Deep down in Sugartown Deep down in Sugartown Deep down
  • Well I don’t wanna be where the bands are I don’t wanna hear that chainsaw noise I don’t give a damn about your hopes and your dreams Or what the rest of the world enjoys Well I’ve been chewing razor blades honey I’ve been chasing meat I’ve got a salvation army banging on in my head And a bucket of bones at my feet And there’s nothing coming easy And there’s witches in my bed There’s a taste in my mouth that I just can’t place And I’m haunted by the things I should have said I’m trying to get better Well I’ll be your best friend And I’ll kiss goodbye to my evil twin On my word you can depend Boy scout to the end Well I don’t wanna see in your windows I don’t wanna meet your gold dust friends I don’t give a damn about the money in your bank On what your happiness all depends Well I’ve been sucking on dead air honey I’ve been chasing wind I’ve got a hole in my pocket where the sun don’t shine And I’m paranoid that I’ve been twinned And everything’s moving slowly Like a carousel sticking in the mud Everybody’s hanging on for one last dance And I’m bringing my one last drug I’m trying to get better I’ll be your best friend And I’ll kiss goodbye to my evil twin On my word you can depend Boy scout to the end Well I don’t wanna be in your phone book Every time you call me, I’ll be engaged I don’t give a damn if you ever get to know me Or you’re horrified and enraged I’ve been swallowing rusty nails honey I’ve been breaking teeth I’ve got a bag full of tricks even I don’t believe And I’m a whole different story underneath And I’m sick and tired of being right Ad my heart beats once a day There’s a hole in my head where the rain gets in And I’m too old to live any other way I’m trying to get better I’ll be your best friend And I’ll kiss goodbye to my evil twin On my word you can depend Boy scout to the end
  • [Verse 1: Jon Fratelli] Pull me up a chair and keep your money, there's no guarantees Won’t you please forgive me but you know cold blooded women make me sneeze And I’ll kick you out the door if for just one minute you lie And they’ll come crashing through the wall and leave you crawling til’ the minute you die Pour yourself a drink or three and maybe we’ll think clearer for a while You may be an embarrassment but I love the way your clothes are never in style Livings much too easy, dying would be some kind of bore Well, you swear that you’re original but I know I’ve seen those jealous eyes before [Chorus] So steal the watch from off my wrist Oh, and shake me by the hand We could disappear for days And they wouldn’t understand Gypsy blood will get you far And will not miss you when you go [Verse 2] Tear another hole in my brown shoes and we can all sleep for a while Well I told you once before, I love your braces and your hesitant smile But please don’t get me wrong, it's only right that you can stamp on my heart Well I’ve seen you and your friends some place, you know I just can’t tell you apart [Refrain] And though they'll hunt you like a dog they won’t take you alive 'Cause you made them piles of money stacked up, twenty stories high And the boys in every bar, they will not miss you when you go [Chorus] So steal the watch from off my wrist Oh, and shake me by the hand We could disappear for days, and they wouldn’t understand Gypsy blood will get you far, though it’s far away from me Look me up when you get home and maybe then we'll see [Outro] Though they’ll hunt you like a dog, they won’t take you alive 'Cause you made them piles of money Stacked up twenty stories high And the boys from every bar Well, they’ll miss you when you’re gone You can tell a heady tale And we'll all keep screaming on La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la-la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la La-la, la-la
