New English Blues Parts I II & III

Written By: JC Carroll

NEW ENGLISH BLUES PART I

Drink a cup of tea with Me,
Maybe a Glass of Milk Stout,
As Englishmen we are conditioned,
Not to let our feelings out,

Stiff upper Lip, Shoot from the Hip,
From my Germain Street Shirt,
To My Plain Oxford Shoes,
I got the New English Blues,

Cant rant like a continental,
Can't Moan like a Yank,
I've got 500 years of Naval Traditional
and Colonialism to thank,

I'm bottling up my emotion
The Best That I can,
Bad for to go Blubbing,
I'll take it like a Man.

From My Carnaby Street Parka
to my Clarks Desert Boots,
I've Got those New English Blues,

NEW ENGLISH BLUES PART II

I live in a Cold Country Where we never see the sun,
We are Surrounded by CCTV camera, and the Children Carry Guns,
London is so Damn expensive its worse then Tokyo or New York,

So Dont Talk to me about
THOSE NEW ENGLISH BLUES
THOSE NEW ENGLISH BLUES

We got an underclass that lives on Handouts
We got an upperclass that lives in the Past
We Got an ecomomy Built on a Service industry,
We got an Nation Deep in Debt,
Thats How you Get
THOSE BLUE ENGLISH BLUES
THOSE NEW ENGLISH BLUES

THOSE NEW ENGLISH BLUES
THOSE NEW ENGLISH BLUES
From My Kiss Me Quick Hat to the Hole in My Shoes
THOSE NEW ENGLISH BLUES
THOSE NEW ENGLISH BLUES
From My Glad to Be Alive with my P45
THOSE NEW ENGLISH BLUES
THOSE NEW ENGLISH BLUES

NEW ENGLISH BLUES PART III

From the Angel of the North
To the South Cornwall Shores
Theres a New English Blues

Manchester in the Rain
will never be the same without You
And the new English Blues

Tho the mill has Closed,
The Bands Cornet still Blows
A Mean New English Blues,

Tho our teams Sometimes Loose,
Lets raise a Glass of our best Boose
To the New English Blues

from the Docks of Liverpool,
to the Best Private Schools,
Boy s strum to the tune
Of the New English Blues,

In our Cross of St george,
a New Song we will Forge
to the Tune of the New English Blues.

From the Angel of the North
To the South Cornwall Shores
Theres a New English Blues

Farewell you Fine Spanish Ladies Farewell you Ladies of Spain,
I'm Going Back to England,
I'm taking the morning Plane, I'm taking the morning Plane,
I leave you with your Land of Sunshine,
Your Orange Groves and sweet Rioja Wine,
Cause I'm Going Back to England,
To the Most Beautifull Wonderfull Girls in the World,
I Love My English Girls.

Parisenne Women are Famous for their coolness and Haute Couture,
But I'm not sure if I could love one,
Even Tho she Whispers Je t'adore
Even Tho she Whispers Je t'adore
I'd leave her in her boudior with her champagne,
I'd Head for the Gare Du Nord,
There I'd take the Boat train to Calais,
To see the White cliffs of Dover once More,
To see the White cliffs of Dover once More,
Cause I'm Going Back to England,
To the Most Beautifull Wonderfull Girls in the World,
I Love My English Girls.

I've Lost One I've left one I Married One,
I've got a New One Down Surrey Way,
I've Got Two Bright Young Things,
And the Joy that they Bring,
That I'm thankfull for every Day,
That I'm thankfull for every Day,

Cause I'm Going Back to England,
To the Most Beautifull Wonderfull Girls in the World,
I Love My English Girls.
I Love My English Girls
I Love My English Girls

Come over the Hills,
Come over the Sea,
Fly down to my Place I go in The Pyranees,

A Cathar Castle perched High on the Hill,
You can feel that your lungs can Breathe
and you don't feel Ill,

Say Goodbye to the Big City Light Lights,
Say goodbye to the pollution and the Cars,
Lie on your back in a cool summer night,
and Stare at the Shooting Stars,

You feel so small but part of it all,
we've been staring at the Sky
for Hundreds and Thousands of years,

Incredible to see its Caveman TV,
The Playground of the Gods,
The Hopes and the fears of man

Say Goodbye to the Big City Light Lights,
Say goodbye to the pollution and the Cars,
Lie on your back in a cool summer night,
and Stare at the Shooting Stars,

You feel so small but part of it all,
Its specail to see,
I call it the Caveman TV,

The Playground of the Gods,
The Dreams of Man,
You Can believe what you like
But its Magic up there in the Sky.

Say Goodbye to the Big City Light Lights,
Say goodbye to the pollution and the Cars,
Lie on your back in a cool summer night,
and Stare at the Shooting Stars,

Come over the Hills,
Come over the Sea,
Fly down to my Place I go in The Pyranees,

A Cathar Castle perched High on the Hill,
You can feel that your lungs can Breathe
and you don't feel Ill,

Say Goodbye to the Big City Light Lights,
Say goodbye to the pollution and the Cars,
Lie on your back in a cool summer night,
and Stare at the Shooting Stars,
