Young Parisians

young Parisians are so French
they love Patti Smith
young Parisians are so French
at the Champs Elycee

I want to go to Paris with you
just to see what the French boys do
why don't you come to Paris with me?
and see the young Parisians

young Parisians are so French
they sit on the metro
young Parisians are so French
not like me and you

I want to go to Paris with you
just to see what the French boys do
why don't you come to Paris with me?
and see the young Parisians

alors... et maintenant:

I want to go to Paris with you
just to see what the French boys do to you
why don't you come to Paris with me?
and see the young Parisians

young Parisians are so french
they're always called Dubois
young Parisians are so French
talk nothing but French

I want to go to Paris with you
just to see what the French boys do
why don't you come to Paris with me?
and see the young Parisians

they're so French
they're so French
they're so French
ah-ooh

Lady/Catch a Falling Star

I saw a lady and she was naked
I saw a lady she had no clothes on

I've seen her in the corridor
lying on her back on the floor
why she wanna pick on me?
she was naked

I saw a lady and she was naked
I saw a lady she had no clothes on

I had a good look through the crack
she had footmarks up her back
how did they get there?
she was naked

I saw a lady and she was naked
I saw a lady she had no clothes on

now she's looking at me
what's that rope I see?
don't like the look of those boots
she was naked

I don't wanna seem crude
but she was nude
nude...

catch a falling star and put it in your pocket
never let it fade away
catch a falling star, put it in your pocket
save it for a rainy day

for love may come and tap you on the shoulder
some starry night
and just in case you feel you wanna hold her
you'll have a pocket full of starlight

catch a falling star, put it in your pocket
never let it fade away (never let it fade away)
catch a falling star, put it in your pocket
save it for a rainy day (rainy day)

for when your troubles start a-multiplying
and they just might
it's easy to forget them without tryin'
you'll have a pocket full of starlight
(pocket full of starlight, booboo booboo boo boo)

catch a falling star, put it in your pocket
never let it fade away (never let it fade away)
catch a falling star and put it in your pocket
save it for a rainy day (rainy day)
or else:

you'll have a pocket full of starlight

catch a falling star and put it in your pocket
never let it fade away (never let it fade away)
catch a falling star, put it in your pocket
save it for a rainy day (rainy day)
save it for a rainy day
save it for a rainy day

Plastic Surgery

hey, you got a face like a labrador
I don't mind, that's what I'm here for
the angel Gabriel sent me
to give you a little bit of sympathy

ooh, I'm gonna take you down to Harley Street

such a shame you had that crash
that will teach you to drive flash
and that lorry, hit you at full power
your blood gushing like a shower

gonna take you down to Harley Street

plastic surgery, it's so plastic
plastic surgery, fantastic

well, you might have to sell you car
and your parents brand new house
you lie awake and you loose your sleep, baby
miracles do not come cheap

gonna take you down to Harley Street

well, you can have a brand new nose
light blue eyes or even hazel
little ears will be much better
when you are a real go-getter

gonna take you down to Harley Street

plastic surgery, it's so plastic (alright now)
plastic surgery, fantastic (and you'd better take me away)

well don't go sitting in the sun
your new face might start to run
just forget your make-up scheme
clean your face with Mr Sheen

ooh I'm gonna take you down to Harley Street

plastic surgery, it's so plastic (okay)
plastic surgery, fantastic

I'm gonna take you down to
I'm gonna take you down to
take you take you down to Harley
gonna take you down
I'm gonna take you down girl

Hampstead

oh well Hampstead is for fairs
and not for revolution
I was down the venture knocking two
bits of wood together

I've seen you poncing round
seen you looking in the mirror
your mummy drives a Mini
and I didn't have a telephone, no

you're deprived of being deprived
you're deprived of being deprived
you're deprived of being deprived

if you talked you have to do
and I changed the line for you Maxie

I seen you poncing round
I seen you looking in the mirror
your mummy drives a Mini
and I didn't have a telephone, no

you're deprived of being deprived
you're deprived of being deprived
you're deprived of being deprived

you're deprived of being deprived
you're deprived of being deprived

Rubber People

how is the marchioness?
still playing Alice in Rubberland?
ha-ha

rubber people are lovely people
they long for latex beside their skin
the feel they get for a sheet of rubber
the strength you get from a support chin

those rubber people are charming people
their tastes produce quite a bizarre dish
not a steak, or a private table but a
rubber mat with its rubber swish

rubber boots,rubber cap, rubber bars, rubber head
rubber cat, rubber sheet, rubber doll, rubber bed
rubber people, rubber people
rubber boots, rubber cap, rubber bars, rubber head
rubber cat, rubber sheet, rubber doll, rubber bed
rubber people, rubber people

oh, rubber people are lovely people
a hook in the ceiling, a nice strong gag
nicely wrapped and strapped, baby powdered
then tied up in a rubber bag

those rubber people are lovely people
just how rubbery can you get?
they just love those rubber rhythms
ever since that first bedwet

rubber boots, rubber cap, rubber bars, rubber head
rubber cat, rubber sheet, rubber doll, rubber bed
rubber people, rubber people
rubber boots, rubber cap, rubber bars, rubber head
rubber cat, rubber sheet, rubber doll, rubber bed
rubber people, rubber people
okay, rubber people

goggles take care of your vision
earplugs will not let you hear
so you lie there so still and helpless
in your rubber atmosphere

rubber boots, rubber cap, rubber bars, rubber head
rubber cat, rubber sheet, rubber doll, rubber bed
rubber people, rubber people
rubber boots, rubber cap, rubber bars, rubber head
rubber cat, rubber sheet, rubber doll, rubber bed
rubber people, rubber people

gagged in discipline, bound in bondage
feast until this treatment ends
spanked in satin, whipped in Wigan
for they are our fettered friends

rubber boots, rubber cap, rubber bars, rubber head
rubber cat, rubber sheet, rubber doll, rubber bed
rubber people, rubber people

I've got rubber up me ears
rubber up me nose
rubber up me back
rubber up me toes
rubber people, rubber people

Deutscher Girls

we'll do the tango
we'll try the foxtrot
I'll eat a mango
you'll drink a straight scotch
you know I told you
you could be classy
so why did you have to be so nasty

remember the curls
of the Deutscher girls
lover of mine
from down the Rhine

I'll fill your bath with
the finest champagne
I'll lick your skin dry
I cherish your name
the stakes get higher
as your dress sparsly
so why did you have to be so nasty

remember the curls
of the Deutscher girls
lover of mine
from down the Rhine

I love your blonde hair
I kiss your pigtails
and I could not share
the scratch of your nails
and though you mock me
your eyes so glassy
oh why did you have to be so nasty

I said remember the curls
of the Deutscher girls
lover of mine from down the Rhine

Lou (New York Coke Joke)

lost your unpredictability
they said you were an aging whore
stockpile electricity
but now my friend you're out the door

Andy Warhol video
go prepare it, take it up
up on your arse a needle
no trippin' to you, Lou

I know you shoot up aspirin
you fell but n-n-n-n-never hate yourself
you never st-st-st-st-stagger in r-r-r-r-reality
the fame that's put you on the shelf

Andy Warhol video
go prepare it, take it up
up on your arse a needle

Song For Ruth Ellis

modelling and whoring
pregnancy, abortive
bad girl of the fifties

take a legend, death style
take a legend, death style (wa-ooh)
take a legend, death style

Ruth smashing the car window
have a drink of Pernod
give the girl a bullet

violence in Hampstead
violence in Hampstead
violence in Hampstead

though you killed, you're not to blame, no
you loved so much you killed yourself
dear Ruth, ohh!

Ruthie you are a Monroe (mmm...)
and I love your peroxide hair
with you, 'least I know there's no

celluloid within you (wa-ooh)
celluloid within you (wa-ooh)

violence in Hampstead
violence in Hampstead
oooh, ooooh-ooh, wa-oooh

A.N.T.S.

Antfan, there's no need to feel down
I said Antfan,'cos we ain't been around
I said Antfan, there's no others in town
who can do the things that we do

Antfan, there's a place you can go
I said Antfan, called the Antmusic Show
I said go there to Adam and the Ants
they can make you start new romance

it's fun to go to the A.N.T.S.
fun to go to the A.N.T.S.
put on a kilt, dye your hair green
and dance to Zerox-machine
A.N.T.S.
fun to go to the A.N.T.S.
put on that paint, and hold up your head
till all the tough men drop dead

Antfan, I was once in your shoes
so tired, and fed up with the blues
so I went and got me a sound
and we called that sound Antmusic

no band does it just like we do
I said no band gets to satisfy you
go there to Adam and the Ants
they can make you start new romance

fun to go to the A.N.T.S.
fun to go to the A.N.T.S.
put on a kilt, dye your hair green
and dance to Zerox-machine
A.N.T.S.
fun to go to the A.N.T.S.
put on your paint, and hold up your head
till all the tough men drop dead

Antfan, what do you want to be
nowhere, or an Ant just like me
you can go there to Adam and the Ants
they can make you start new romance

it's fun to go to the A.N.T.S.
fun to go to the A.N.T.S.
put on your kilt, dye your hair green
and dance to Zerox-machine

a panic in the lingerie

Coup D'Etat

Rocky Balboa ya know?

in a world where techno speak and hi-fi
weekly blow good songs away
in a world where cheap outrage and
average ideas lead you astray
and it’s nice to know, I'm no yo-yo for Mr. Technology

coup d’etat, coup d’etat

it’s been real but it’s the 80’s
and all I’m hearing lately is how marvellous it was in days gone by
bye bye

coup d’etat, coup d’etat, coup d’etat, coup d’etat
coup d’etat, coup d’etat, coup d’etat, coup d’etat
coup d’etat, coup d’etat, coup d’etat, coup d’etat
coup d’etat, coup d’etat, coup d’etat, coup d’etat

it’s nice to know that no techno runs
this here showman’s hat and fame
human soul it’s nice to know and
even though my gals don’t claw
and it’s nice to know, I'm no yo-yo for Mr. Technology

coup d’etat, coup d’etat

it’s been real but it’s the 80’s

Zydyco

people come people go, how long I'll stay I don't know
when showbiz is a dirty word, I hope my time will come

off we go, to my bayou
gonna throw a Zydyco

people love people hate, for my downfall they can't wait
when showbiz is a dirty word, I hope my time will come

I wish that everyone could see a show by Liza Minnelli
such a marvelous lady with talent by the ton

off we go, to my bayou
gonna throw a Zydyco

people lie people hurt, like to read their Sunday dirt
so every Jeckyll needs a Hyde to blame the business on

every rebel that I've met, say they're going to die and yet
see them now and they ain't dead yet, and pushing forty one

off we go, to my bayou
gonna throw a Zydyco

I wish that everyone could see a show by Liza Minnelli
such a marvelous lady with talent by the ton

off we go, to my bayou
gonna throw a Zydyco

Pumping is a splendid gift, I hope that you will catch my drift
Some like pumping in the lift, just like the Scottish Tongs

off we go,to my bayou
gonna throw a Zydyco

there is nothing like the sound of a nicely laundered pound
trying to collect around forty million

And you've got yourself some trouble
cos he got it up for you

(a voice sample by?)

he's a
a hired gun
and just so you know
the places he has been
you don't wanna go

you got yourself a missile
way out of the blue
he's got a rocket in his pocket
and it's homing in on you

Brand New Torso

things get angry
it paints a view
that's just enough
to see him through
we took the gamble
and now I must pay up
gotta get even ... at all cost

more than an attitude
more than a logo
to be a brand new man
with a brand new torso

they try to mould you
and make you soft
so we'll be snipers ... and pick them off
the pendulum must have its day
we'll see it swinging the other way

more than an attitude
more than a logo
to be a brand new man
with a brand new torso

you shoulda been born 100 years ago
you'da been a real gun-fighter in a wild-west show
a teenage menace, a comanchero!

if you're gonna get your kicks tonight that's just fine by us
but who's there to scream

and you don’t push your luck, no don’t push your luck
cos you try to be neat

so high are your heels, so high are your heels
