  • WATERLOO LILY
    Words and Music
    by Richard Sinclair

    The view - Sixth Avenue
    The legs of Waterloo Lily
    Black tights for dark nights
    On a trip through Picadilly
    If you knew the kind of glue
    She gums her eyelids with
    Realise, on those eyes
    That's a gum you'd rather not use
    From a jar, in the house of Waterloo Lily
    Painted red, the double bed
    The biggest in the city
    Especially sprung, hung undone
    To stimulate delight
    Sex machines seem but clean
    She does things, you call her true

    Waterloo Lily's got enough to turn us all on
    Got a bra to fit a car
    A port upon her back you warm your feet on
    A corset keeps her in
    So when you pull a string it lets it all out
    Lily Waterloo, Piccadilly blue

    Pint of white on Lily's lip
    The daily upper door
    Down the caff, a cup of char
    Double dogwalk, brown and British
    Imagine you and Lily too
    Aboard a double bunk
    Riding two, it's out of view
    All the things your sister won't...

    Waterloo Lily's got enough to turn us all on
    Got a bra to fit a car
    A port upon her back you warm your feet on
    A corset keeps her in
    So when you pull a string it lets it all out
    Lily Waterloo, Picadilly blue


    SONGS AND SIGNS
    Words and Music
    by Steve Miller

    How did we feel that way?
    I can't see what was happening
    Do you still remember
    How it came to be another way?

    Two into time
    Yes, we passed by as one together
    Give us a chance too
    Making songs and signs for
    Open mind
    Other people, must they see in through our blinds?
    No of course no
    At the time it was fine

    Ain't life a disaster?
    You go too deeply

    I know what you're feeling
    Does not fit in reality
    You can't leave the scene now
    That's more than you can tolerate

    Later on too
    Stop the showdown
    You can star in
    Some scene you feel freely


    ARISTOCRACY
    Words and Music
    by Pye Hastings

    You talk of all the many things that you have
    And you smile from day to day
    But no-one has ever seen any of these
    And those smiles just fade away
    Someone keeps shouting out 'I want to know'
    Well I can't help singing this song
    When they tell me that the devil is a gentleman too
    I know I can't go wrong

    I have to slip away today
    I've been invited down to stay
    Yes I feel my going down

    They say that eight fishes call men in the sea
    And use man-made for the bait
    And shoots all the people that fly in the sky
    That chance on his estate
    That feeds on salmon, that just has to be seen
    And none but he can do
    They tell me this and they tell me that
    And tell me this is always, always something new

    You'd better believe it's so
    I made up my mind to go
    A whole world waits for you

    I'll sit with my head thrust down on your knees
    And smile for you again
    And you won't have to worry about anything now
    I'll be halfway there by ten
    It only takes a moment to decide on the move
    It all seems so absurd
    Still I know that the devil is a gentleman too
    Who never keeps his word

    I made up my mind to go
    You'd better believe it's so
    A whole world waits for me


    THE LOVE IN YOUR EYE / TO CATCH ME A BROTHER / SUBSULTUS / DEBOUCHE-
    MENT / TILBURY KECKS
    Words and Music
    by Pye Hastings

    In dreams of you I wish a song on everyone
    A gift of love to fill your eyes, to fill your eyes
    And if I turn your head awhile, my heart will sing
    Thunder songs of love to make you smile

    I've travelled far in search of things I didn't know
    I could have found as well at home as in the skies
    There's so much time misspent in dreams of wealth and fame
    When all you need is love in your eye

    Take a cup of newfound wealth
    Drink it down and do yourself
    Let your feelings tell you why
    Have no fear for lonely days
    Mind in hand you'll find a way
    You must believe me till you've tried

    - + - + - + -

    Come the day
    Insomuch as we can tell
    A shadow clears anew before me
    Sing your song
    And through our needs we'll tag along
    Collecting thoughts for all the others


    THE WORLD IS YOURS
    Words and Music
    by Pye Hastings

    The world is mine, borrowed for a time
    Please hear the love I bring for you to follow
    Come with me, with diamonds in the sea
    And stare the hearts of men whose fight in sorrow
    It's foolish to suppose you know me well, I know
    Everything that I touch won't turn to gold
    Money's not my way although your own lost soul's
    Waiting for the day to break that hole

    And I love you
    I've never loved someone like I do
    Love you
    The world is yours if you want me to
    Love you
    I've never loved someone like I do

    Whisper please some scandal to the trees
    I'm sure they would enjoy themselves enormously
    Will you and I sit up in the sky
    And chase our minds through space and time relentlessly?
    Circumstances indicate for you and I
    If the time is right, we bid a fond farewell
    Some friends of mine, the world they take on for a while
    Then seldom find the time they know so well

    And I love you
    I've never loved someone like I do
    I love you
    The world is yours if you love me too
    I love you
    I've never loved someone like I do


    PYE'S JUNE THING
    Words and Music
    by Pye Hastings

    Take a sip from my magic cup
    And then time pass you by
    You might as well be with me
    Cause there's luck in your eye
    "Shall I not be your friend"
    I heard her say so peacefully
    And then smile away the time
    And tings to me

    What with the mood I'm in
    I don't know, I dunno
    I never was a strength of mind
    And there's side, yes I know
    "Come on in, come on" she said
    I've got to go, and I go fast
    There's a time to be hend by all
    But it won't last

    Come with me, tell no lie
    Or you won't see another day
    You'll be the kind of yesteryear
    And that's the way you will stay
    "Give me fire", I cried out loud
    "Give it to me all the time"
    What I need no asking twice
    Is to words I couldn't find

    I could hardly believe my eyes
    When I saw her standing here
    She had flowered herself in green
    And had diamonds in her hair
    Was it real or was it just a dream
    That was to fade away from me?
    And I saw new ----- I don't need


    FERDINAND
    Words and Music
    by Pye Hastings

    My friend Ferdinand will, if he can
    Cross that bridge to a little girl's skirt
    Hands on which he's a terrible flirt
    Says it's good, tells me that I should
    Copy him as much as I can
    Ride into a dock with only one hand
    "I know you gotta be kiddin' me
    No man could ever do that and get away"

    My, my, my, my, Ferdinand
    Oh, you're telling lies again, Ferdinand

    Copin' lay one day
    Said to me 'Boy, hey!
    Did you hear what is coming from there?'
    She was pointing at Ferdinand's hand
    In walks Ferdinand's room
    Made she cries and beating her chest
    I know I got what it takes, but boy!
    You really got the rest
    "Oh, no, you gotta be kiddin' me!
    No more, it's just what I need to fade away"

    My, my, my, my, Ferdinand
    Oh, you're still a one-man hand, Ferdinand


    LOOKING LEFT, LOOKING RIGHT
    Words and Music
    by Pye Hastings

    If you don't know, back in the limes
    Gotta get used to your feelings
    No, no, you can't knock all the time
    Don't know then how you feel
    Well I wanna see walk a wonder
    Such talk will make for you only sorrow
    You bet, I love you so
    But I want on my way
    And I can't stay till tomorrow

    Gotta look on the left, look on the right
    Gotta believe that there's something
    I don't know much, but I love you still
    That I do

    In through the back, out through the head
    Take all the time that you find there
    Sit right down on a belliful packet for two

    Break down the line, shake off the head
    Put down a sunny time feeling
    Ask how and decided you're dead
    Welcome back ------- real
    Thank God you offer time for coming
    After all no one knows till tomorrow
    Turn off your magic -------
    Go on for fun, pick up a gun till tomorrow
