Track Name: FREE LOVE
born to blow our tiny minds
locked inside our bedrooms, it's 1969
& we're listening to the far out sounds
heads spinning to the psychedelic bands

makes me dance, takes me to a place that I ain't been before
a golden world ..strange new lands
& they're wearin' flowers & holding hands
& they're dreamin' dreams of peace & love
& making music..takes us on a wild wild ride

Blind Faith, Red Crayola, Balloon Farm, The Association,
Kaleidoscope & Moby Grape, & don't forget
The Moving Sidewalks..Vanilla Fudge, Blues Magoos,
Electric Prunes & Strawberry Alarm Clock

have you ever heard a psychedelic band
have you ever seen a psychedelic band

The Misunderstood & Captain Beefheart, H P Lovecraft
The Small Faces, Elmer Gantry's Velvet Opera
The Silver Apples & Fever Tree
The 13th Floor Elevators, The Yardbirds & of course Traffic

got me a tie-dye t-shirt & I got me a pair of flairs
playin' on a set of bongos..listenin' back 40 years
& drag out the old vinyl.. & I'm diggin'
the psychedelic bands

have you ever heard a psychedelic band
it'll blow your mind, take you to another land
na na nana na etc

free love free love free love
they're singin' songs & doin' groovy things
with words that make no sense
they plugged us in they switched us on
make love not war..free love free love
make love not war etc
Track Name: TWO TIMER
she told me so many times
it's tattoed on my brain
you better smarten up your act
or you'll never see me again
I think I'll close my eyes & count to ten
& when I open them I'll see
that she's still there right next to me
ah she's a two timer.... etc

yeah I guess I didn't read the signs
or think the whole thing through
I know I should have changed my ways
& I didn't have a clue
so I think I'll close my eyes & count to ten
& when I open them I'll see
that she's still there right next to me
ah she's a two timer.... etc

she had me twisted around her little finger
laughing behind my back
to much attention is not enough
for that nymphomaniac
yeah just look at her go now
oh..she's working the crowd
putting on one helluva show
with her captive audience
yeah she's giving all the boys
just what they want

in the dead of the night
how was I supposed to know
when I switched on the light
she was with my best friend Joe
yeah he's a two timer.... etc
Track Name: KARMA BOMB
well..you never know what's waitin' around the corner
waitin' to trip you up, taggin' along for the ride
and you never can tell who'll be there to back you up
standing in your corner when the chips are down
how come it's all hanging over me
like a parasol sheltering me from the sun
now I never meant you any harm
and I'm still beguiled by your charm
how I long to be wrapped in your arms.. forever

karma comes a walkin', and karma comes a'talkin'
karma comes a chalkin' one up for me
oh karma comes a rockin', karma comes a knockin'
karma comes a sockin' one for me
karma bomb...karma bomb

Oh you never know what's hiding in the closet
skeletons in the cupboard
who's the rat on the sinkin' ship ?
sheltered in a cloud of cotton wool
with your head up a place where the sun don't shine
no I never expected the unexpected
that was now and this is then
like a rabbit in the headlights...bewildered

karma does the walkin', and karma does the talkin'
karma is a chalkin' one up for me
Karma is a comin', karma is a hummin'
karma is a bummin' a ride with me
karma bomb...karma bomb

cast your spell..on a rainy day
down a wishing well you throw it all away
now who can tell, and who's to say
so I'll paint it all with gold leaf
and chase the indigo..away

now if I'm a cloud, you are a puff of smoke
as we mingle till we become as one
as we float across an obsidian sky
above the ocean of tears we cried
gently we meld...and become, one and the same

CHORUS outro etc
Track Name: INTO THE ZONE
I open the curtains & see my reflection frown at me
the sun's behind a dark old cloud
so I crawl on back into bed
take a look around I can see there's something missing
every sight & every sound
I want it to be just like the very first time

won't you help me find my way...into the zone
help me to get through the day...into the zone
take me to that magic place...into the..

I been missing your laughter
been craving the comfort of your love
so here I am wasted
I'm totally shit-faced once again
oh heaven knows.. so it goes
barking at the moon
looking for some magic under the table
away with the fairies ..
having a party in my head

heading into.. heading into the zone
there's a party in my head..into the zone
having a party in my head..into the zone
there's a party in my head..into the..

won't you help me find my way
help me to get through the day
take me to that magic place
there's a party in my head
having a party in my head
Track Name: SANDCASTLES
been fighting a feeling, it won't go away
been wrestling my demons
been searching for meaning
on a bright summers day
I been lost in a dreamland, on a porcelain bus
there's no time for hindsight
to forgive & forget is a must

been watching sandcastles.. wash away
been watching that blue blue blue sky fade to grey
I been drinking from a glass half full
I been swimming in a paddling pool
been watching sandcastles.. wash away

I been walking dark alleys
been crawling through quicksand
I been marching in circles
riding bareback on turtles
going nowhere fast
I'm wandering through a junkyard
praying it can only get better
playing cat & mouse on a sunkissed day with you
& I'm wrapped up in wonder at the beauty of it all
oh.. & if my eyes don't deceive me I took them off the ball

been watching sandcastles.. wash away
been watching that blue blue blue sky fade to grey
been swimming up a waterfall
kicking around a concrete ball
watching sandcastles.. wash away

tell me all about the magic world that you come from
into my silver dreams someone threw a karma bomb
why do my feelings get in the way of a good time
like watching sandcastles.. wash away
Track Name: MAN IN THE ATTIC
there's a man in the attic nobody's ever seen
all day all night at the window
keepin' an eye on everything
now he's supposed to be in charge
make sure everythin's alright
but as far as I can tell
the job he's doin' is shite
ohh...the man in the attic

what would I say, what would I do ?
if I came face to face with him
I got a question or two
why don't ya come downstairs ?
and show yourself
there seems to be a few things
you've overlooked that need sorting out

I don't believe in Santa Claus
fairytales & miracles
I just believe in the here & now
there ain't no man upstairs !

so come on & smell the roses
so good to be alive
right here under our noses
you just have to open your eyes
ah.. you got to be jokin'
oh.. you're pullin' my leg
I don't believe the claptrap
that the big book says
ohh... the man in the attic
nobody's ever seen him
never answers his door

now I'm gonna take my chances
& have a bet each way
that there ain't no big white pearly gates
& there ain't no better place
no reunion with my loved ones
no angels up in the clouds
& no man upstairs

I don't believe in Santa Claus
fairytales & miracles
I just believe in the here & now
there ain't no man upstairs !

now the man in the attic, the man upstairs
I think he was invented to allay all our earthly fears
a wild hallucination, a bit of wishful thinkin'
created by some crazy old monk who musta been drinkin'

the man in the attic...
Track Name: PAPA
riding to school on an old grey mare
a dripping sandwich for lunch
better rush home to milk the cows
no time for fun & navel gazing
now papa told me that's how it was
in a time & place
I can't possibly imagine
so come on old man now take my hand
as you close your eyes & drift away

PaPa.. nobody understands
PaPa.. one hell of a man

1939 put up his hand
fighting for the greater good
gave Mr Rommel a jolly good whoopin'
but he came home a wounded soul
no place for pity no room for tears
go get a job, carry on regardless
am I the only one who understands
what you been through
a man can only take so much

PaPa.. a man of a different time
PaPa.. a better man, you'll never find
Papa.. don't you worry 'bout a thing
it's gonna be alright now

before he knows it's 1955
three little boys to feed and keep alive
just a humble grocer
coulda been so much more
chained to his business
shackled to his wife
every day he ponders he coulda had a life
no time for fun & navel gazing daydreams

& with hindsight I forgive it all
I can see it now, how that anger wells up in you
a generation that had no choice, oh & you had no voice
you simply did what you had do
Papa.. don't you worry 'bout a thing
it's gonna be alright now
Track Name: AH-OH
Just when it all looks rosy
& the icing's on the cake
here comes that clap of thunder
with the lightning in it's wake
never give up keep fighting for
the things you believe in
don't bow down, don't suck it up
to the powers that be
when the bottom falls out of your world
just when you thought it was all plain sailing
when the passion flies out the window
wooh ooh....

Some people live in a bubble
the center of the universe
floating around in a dream world
the best of the worst
love has it's own sweet instinct
that finds it's way to the heart
like an insect finds it's way to the flower
with a will you can't tear apart
when the bottom falls out of your world
just when you thought it was all plain sailing
when the passion flies out the window
wooh ooh....

Sometimes there is no answers
just let it...let it all go
stop asking so many dang questions
just go with the flow
never give up keep fighting for
the things you believe in
don't bow down, don't suck it up
to the powers that be

Ah oh...ah oh ah oh etc....
here we go again
Track Name: GUTLESS WONDER
yeah I been watchin' him spew his insanity from his golden pulpit
hypnotized by the sound of his own ranting voice
his hairpiece flapping in the wind
offering the poor nothing but catchphrases
and venomous vitriol and rancid glimmers of hope
ohoh oh oh mister meglamaniac
floating away on a sea of your own bile

and every time he opens his mouth
total nonsense dribbles out
now don't believe a word he says
oh heaven help the gutless wonder
so say so long to the gutless wonder
as he spouts his endless lies
bye bye bye bye say goodbye to the gutless wonder

explosive words of dynamite from the lips of a conman
a narcissistic delusional proto-fascist clown
he's completely void of grace and bankrupt of soul
they wanna put a lunatic in charge of the asylum
say so long to the gutless wonder
and say goodbye to the voice of hate and fear

and every time he opens his mouth
total nonsense dribbles out
now don't believe a word he says
oh heaven help the gutless wonder
so say so long to the gutless wonder
as he spouts his endless lies
bye bye bye bye say goodbye to the gutless wonder
Track Name: MAA-YA-HA
Way out in the desert in the heart of Arizona
Sou'west of Sedona, Skull Valley way
thumpin' on his typewriter in the middle of the night
ole Cooter Brown has a mighty tale to tell

"yeah I found her half alive under a violet prickly pear
she done skedaddled from her apache man
she's beaten somethin' wicked, injun woman
by the name of Maa-Ya-Ha"

"now I had me some string and some chewin' gum
and I patched her all up just like a new one
oh Maa-Ya-Ha... gimme one sweet kiss my Maa-Ya-Ha"

"why even a blind squirrel finds a nut ev'ry now 'n again
why... when I found her, I's as happy as a tick on a fat dog
yeah I's as happy as a pig in the sunshine
oh man, she took a liking to the white man's ways
she loved her soda pop and pie
within ten years she got so fat
she got diabetes and... ohhh ! Ma-Ya-Ha"
Track Name: MEMORY LANE
no matter what I say, no matter what I do
no words can convey how much I'm missin' you
& since you cut me loose & time has flown away
I'm lost for words, lost my way
I wish that there was some way that I could make you smile
I'm sure that one day, I'll make it worth your while

oh I've been wanderin' down, memory lane, memory lane
how can I forget it...
yeah I've been travellin' down, memory lane, memory lane

you makin' me laugh, you makin' me cry
a rude awakening lookin' me in the eye
thrown out of paradise & into the fire
turnin' an honest man into a liar
& I whisper into your ear a million sweet things
all those things I thought but never said
oh it's never to late, never to late to forgive
I can't get you outta my head

Chorus repeat

ohhh...let's forgive & forget
it's time to move on
I wish I could do something to make it all go away
maybe a dose of amnesia or half an ounce of hope

Chorus repeat ...out
Track Name: CREME BRULEE
8 egg yolks, 50 grams castor sugar
1 vanilla pod, 600 ml of whipping cream
& most importantly.. preheat the oven to 180˚
now put the cream & vanilla pod in the pan
heat it up to scolding point
making sure that it does not boil
remove the vanilla pod & set it aside
whipping up a special treat
whipping up something sweet
I'm feeling under the weather
need a sugar hit to feel better
we're on our way... Creme Brulee

beat the egg yolks with the castor sugar
when it's light & fluffy stir in the warm cream
now place the mixture in a bowl
over a pan of simmering water
on a gentle heat..stirring all the time
now pour the custard into an ovenproof serving dish
place it in a roasting pan half filled with hot water
and bake for 12 minutes to create a good skin on top
refrigerate overnight.. next day to finish the brulees
sprinkle with castor sugar & place under a blazing hot grill
the sugar will melt & caramalize
allow to cool before serving
the top should be hard & crackly
oh oh oh ... Creme Brulee

& look, if by any chance the mixture is still a bit runny
put it back in the oven & cook for a further 5 minutes
remove it from the oven, serve at room temperature
or chilled...it's really up to you
so if you're feeling...I don't know.. dejected.. sad.. lonely
got noone special in your life, I highly recommend
making yourself.. a Creme Brulee
doesn't get much better... I tell ya !
