Woman From Tokyo

         Fly into the rising sun,
         Faces, smiling everyone
         Yeah, she is a whole new tradition
         I feel it in my heart

         My woman from Tokyo
         She makes me see
         My woman from Tokyo
         She's so good to me

         Talk about her like a Queen
         Dancing in a Eastern Dream
         Yeah, she makes me feel like a river
         That carries me away

         My woman from Tokyo
         She makes me see
         My woman from Tokyo
         She's so good to me

     But I'm at home and I just don't belong ...

     So far away from the garden we love
     She is what moves in the soul of a dove
     Soon I shall see just how black was my night
     When we're alone in Her City of light

         Rising from the neon gloom
         Shining like a crazy moon
         Yeah, she turns me on like a fire
         I get high

         My woman from Tokyo
         She makes me see
         My woman from Tokyo
         She's so good to me

Mary Long

       Mary Long is a hypocrite
       She does all the things that she tells us not to do
       Selling filth from a corner shop
       And knitting patterns to the high street queue
       She paints roses, even makes them smell good
       And then she draws titties on the khazy wall
       Drowns kittens just to get a thrill
       And writes sermons in the Sunday Chronicle

       How did you lose your virginity, Mary Long ?
       When will you lose your stupidity, Mary Long ?

       Mary told Johnny not to write such trash
       Said it was a waste of public money
       She made a fuss, they made apologies
       But everybody thought the show was funny
       When the nation knew you'd had children
       It came as such a surprise
       We really didn't know you'd had it in you
       How you did it we can only surmise

       How did you lose your virginity, Mary Long ?
       When will you lose your stupidity, Mary Long ?

       Mary Long, you're not alone
       But you're a long way behind our times
       What we do in full frontal view
       Is more honest than your clean-up mind
       What I'm saying, Mary Long is
       When you can spare a minute
       Go find your friend the porny Lord
       Dig your self a hole and jump in it

       How did you lose your virginity, Mary Long ?
       When will you lose your stupidity, Mary Long ?

Super Trouper

  I was a young man when I died
  I was a flash, I was full of pride
  I gave it all, I gave my soul, I was so strong
  I felt the truth, I felt the pain in every song

      How well you know me
      You've seen me cry
      I'm just a shadow
      In a rock and roll sky

  I was living in a rock and roll sky
  I was a king, heavy on the style
  Super trouper, yes I know you well, making me shine
  I couldn't see what you did to me. I was so blind

      How well you know me
      You've seen me cry
      I'm just a shadow
      In a rock and roll sky

  I wanna be like I was before
  But this time I'm gonna know the score
  I need a home I can leave behind knowing you're there
  Super trouper, I can see you now, return your stare

      How well you know me
      You've seen me cry
      I'm just a shadow
      In a rock and roll sky

Smooth Dancer

  Black suede, don't mean you're good for me
  Black suede, just brings your mystery
  I want to be inside of you
  But you're black and I don't know what to do

  You're a smooth dancer
  But it's alright
  Cos I'm a freelancer
  And you can never break me though you try
  To make me think you're magical

  Baby, you're the one who can never see the sun
  Because it don't shine nightly
  Don't you look at me because I'm gonna shake free
  You'd better hang on tightly
  You wanna rule the world, but you're acting like a girl
  Who's got a false pregnancy
  You've swollen up inside with nothing but your pride
  And yet you keep on dancing

  Black suede, don't waste your time on me
  Black suede, I sense your mockery
  I tried to go along with you
  But you're black and I know just what to do

  You're a smooth dancer
  But it's alright
  Cos I'm a freelancer
  And you can never break me though you try
  To make me think you're magical

  I think you're crazy, your two-timing ways
  They don't bother me none
  You'd better do it right because one day or night
  I'm gonna walk to freedom
  You know I loved you once and I wanna love again
  But you don't give nothing
  You can see it in my eyes so you've got to realize
  Baby, I ain't bluffing

  Black suede, don't waste your time on me
  Black suede, don't bring me misery
  I tried to be inside of you
  But you're black and now I know what to do

  You're a smooth dancer
  But it's alright
  Cos I'm a freelancer
  And I can tell you're faking though you try
  To make me think you're magical

  Baby, you're the one who can never see the sun
  Bacause it don't shine nightly
  Don't you look at me because I'm gonna shake free
  You'd better hang on tightly
  You know I loved you once and I wanna love again
  But you don't give nothing
  You can see it in my eyes so you've got to realize
  Baby, I ain't bluffing
  Baby, you can rock'n'roll
  But you can never show your soul, smooth dancer

Rat Bat Blue

  Hey baby, what you gonna do
  When the lights go up on you ?
  What's your name, can I drive you home ?
  Sweet woman, are you all alone ?
  You're the one for me
  I'm gonna keep you busy as a bee, could bee, could be
  Rat bat blue

  Now, get up woman, don't be slow
  It's getting late and I wanna go
  No cause for acting big
  Got to love, got to live
  Stick around with me
  I'm gonna show you things you never thought you'd see,
         you see
  Rat bat blue
  You're so fine

  Get out ! You didn't understand
  I'm a hard loving man
  No way you can satisfy
  The way you look, the way you lie
  And when you shut the door
  Make sure I don't see you 'round here no more
  Rat bat blue
  Alright

Place In Line

  I'm living in this line
  I know my place, could think of no way
  Of edging along in a loser's race
  The line was moving slowly
  Day by night
  Everybody's shuffling on to keep a place in the line

  Nine long years I've been in line
  Getting nowhere there is no reason
  For this line I don't care.
  Everybody's standing in the burning sun
  Everybody's shuffling on keeping a place in the line

  Don't you think we're gonna make it
  We've got a place in line
  We're gonna make it some time
  Somehow

Our Lady

  Thinking out of line just to make the sun shine
  Anyway I can be like you
  Fighting with the truth
  Trying to hide a fool in a fantasy
  I'm dreaming, lay me down and take me now
  Our Lady of the skies

  Hiding in the sun like a loaded gun reality
  Aiming high at my dream
  But I can get along
  She makes me strong, anyway
  I'm dreaming and there is no other way
  Our Lady of the skies

  Flying in the sky with a bunch of high fidelity
  I can hear your song
  Offer me a ring just to show me your sincerity
  I'm dreaming, let me go
  Our Lady of the skies
