Lyrics

Lord Byron

Written By: Lloyd Gold

We all know what its like,
To feel like a king and get knocked off your throne,
No home to call your own,
With Shelley and opium in nSwitzerland.

Strange love, your la la Lord Byron
Strange love, your la la Lord Byron

We've had such cofidence,
With your clubfoot kick all that stand in your way,
With a Romantic heart,
So you look to Greece and Antiquities for love

Strange love, your la la Lord Byron
Strange love, your la la Lord Byron
Strange love, your la la Lord Byron
Strange love, your la la Lord Byron

Please don't think me tame
It's not for me, it's not for me
A poet can have charm without decency.

Strange love, your la la Lord Byron
Strange love, your la la Lord Byron

And you know you have to be on the outside love
To truly know yourself
And you know you have to be on the outside love
To truly know yourself
And you know you have to be
On the ouside to know yourself
And you know you have to be
On the outside.

George Best

Written By: Lloyd Gold

The greatest footballer, George Best
The genius from Belfast, George Best
One goal agter another, George Best
And gets all the ladies.

Hits all the pubs
Drinks himself pissed
Gets all the birds
You know what I mean.

The King of Old Trafford, George Best
The keepers would tremble, George Best
He was the fifth Beatle, George Best
And gets all the models

Hits all the pubs
Drinks himself pissed
Gets all the birds
You know what I mean.

You know that he's trouble, George Best
Goes on drinking binges, George Best
He squandered his money, George Best
She fell for the winger,
She's in love, she's in love. hey hey hey

The greatest Red Devil, George Best
Born with a great tallent, George Best
A streak of distruction, George Best
Is always what follows

You know that he's trouble, George Best
Goes on drinking binges, George Best
She fell for the winger,
She's in love, she's in love hey hey hey.

Your Modern Life

Written By: Lloyd Gold

And the subway lights are in your eyes dear,
Like stars on a summer night,
And your ears are plugged into your favorite song,
Your only escape from life.

And you read the adverts on the train dear,
Like a novel going nowhere,
And you're surrounded by a hundred mannequins,
Trying to avoid each others eyes.

Can't you see that modern life's,
Really got you where it wants you?
And you know you complicate you life,
'Cause you want to my love.

And your cellphone can't leave you alone dear,
It's always screaming in you ear,
And you feel the drudgery of everyday,
There must be more than this.

Can't you see that modern life has,
Really got you where is wants you?
And you know you complicate your life,
'Cause you want to my love

And it takes takes you away from here
And it takes takes you away from here
It takes takes you away from here
It takes takes you away from here
My love, my love, my love.

Starfish on Her Mind

Written By: Lloyd Gold

She drifts ashore on a conch shell and a motor,
Ath the deepest ocean blue eyes they shine,
Hair wavey down to her hips and coral lips,
But she never thought of this before.

She's got starfish on her mind
Starfish on her mind
Starfish on her mind

She swims through the ocean with a gallon of sun tan lotion
And her skin glistens in the sun,
Sea-cuumber that gerat her and sharks they'd love to eat her,
She never felt like this before.

She's got starfish on her mind
Starfish on her mind
Starfish on her mind

Takes me out on the rocks
Takes me out of my mind
She's been through the seven seas
You she's gonna have a whale

She swims through the ocean with a single notion
And her skin glistens in the sun,
Sea-cuumber that greet her and sharks they'd love to eat her,
She never felt like this before.

She's got starfish on her mind
Starfish on her mind
Starfish on her mind

Tripping on Robots

Written By: Lloyd Gold

Stubling home from a night of the drink,
Tripping on robots and falling asleep,
Action figures all over the ground,
My long awaited bed is nowhere to be found.

When my mind is made with so much nonsense,
You know I still remember I'll never forget,
You're the best thing that is under the sun,
Don't say I don't remember you when I forget,
Don't say I don't remember you when I forget,

Pints of Belgian beer with the disco gnomes,
Losing track of time when I said I'd be home,
Mary on a half shell on the nieghbors lawn,
I'm alwasy on the ground she always in the air.

When my mind is made with so much nonsense,
You know I still remember I'll never forget,
You're the best thing that is under the sun,
Don't say I don't remember you when I forget,
Don't say I don't remember you when I forget.

Frigate's Wreck

Written By: Lloyd Gold

We all go out to meet her
And sail away
She always tries to defeat us
And sail away.

Well we all know
Where love might take us
To the bottom of the sea
In a frigate's wreck.

We all fall for her eyes
And sail away
We always lose our prize
And sail away

Well we all know
Where love might take us
To the bottom of the sea
In a frigate's wreck.

We all fall for her charms
And sail away
Btany Bay would do less harm
And sail away

Well we all know
Where love might take us
To the bottom of the sea
In a frigate's wreck.

Angels Gave Me Roofies

Written By: Lloyd Gold

She drifts on a cloud that's sobbing
Drifting through department stores
Spiked punch the bottles always empty
A hazy dream with angels and whores

Eyelids pulled back by info commercials
Real-estate, thigh master schemes
The second hand of the clock bitch slaps me
Kindly stike the snooze button for me

Heaven makes me dreamy
And the angels gave me roofies
Insomnia wear a smoking jacket
I can't live without you

THe pillow had just swallowed my eyeballs
Red and white pajamas are stiff
I think I'll sleep for a million years
Only to wake up to your kiss

Heaven makes me dreamy
And the angels gave me roofies
Insomnia wear a smoking jacket
I can't live without you
