Lyrics

Sentimental

Written By: Salisbury

SENTIMENTAL (Salisbury/Smye)

How’s your conscience feel today?
Saw it on the news, you say?
Close you eyes and it’ll go away
The preacher man he’ll make me feel so…
So sickly, so, so sickly sentimental

Go to the pub with Bob and Kim
Tell them about all the places you’ve been
Read it in the paper on the bus
Just got a pay hike so what’s the fuss?
You make me feel so, so sickly, so, so sickly sentimental

Stop feeling so, don’t make me, no
Don’t feel so sentimental
(1st Verse)
END
(Lost chorus)
It’s cold outside but I don’t mind
Don’t give me flack coz I’m alright Jack
It’s warm in here but have no fear, I won’t get
Sickly sentimental.

Nice Girls

Written By: Salisbury

NICE GIRLS (Don’t like boys like me) (Salisbury)

Tired and bored and paranoid, time to go now
All dressed up, top hat and tails with nowhere to go now
I’m wasting my time, can’t you see?
That nice girls don’t like boys like me
However hard I try to be, nice girls don’t like boys like me

Hard to take these sexy fakes, take them home now
Get drunk and dance, hypnotic trance, way to go now
I’m wasting my time, can’t you see?
That nice girls don’t like boys like me
However hard I try to be, nice girls don’t like boys like me
(Chorus)
I could be tough, I could be buff
I could be bad, I could be Brad
I could be mean, be the worst that you’ve seen
I could be sweet, bring the world to your feet

Home alone, no-one to phone, time to go now
To dream of sin and the places I’ve been, Toodle Loo now
Nice girls don’t like boys like me.

Suck

Written By: Salisbury

SUCK (Salisbury/Smye)

You feel free whilst I’m paying for you
You tell lies, what I say is true
I feel blue, you’re look is green
What is new? What is obscene?

Play it again Sam
You think you’re a star Joe
Playing the same songs
Over and over and over we go

Thrill me, fill me up
Shame is, you’re out of luck
Thrill me, fill my cup
Truth is, you know you suck

Give us a job that I can do
I’ll play loud whilst I sing for you
I could do that Man, Gis’ a job
Give us your wad, shut your gob
(Bridge, Chorus, Solo)

What it was I can’t remember
Tunnel vision is so tender
What was that they sung again?
Never mind, I’ve got no brain.
(Bridge, Chorus)
END
