Track Name: Broken Nose
Won't you help me heal my broken nose
Got pushed into a river
Won't you help me heal my broken nose
Got pushed into a river
I'll repeat this line until you're hating me
Won't you help give me a broken nose
Just push me in a river, set me free

Don't blame the drinks it's not their fault
Got pushed into a river
Don't blame the drinks it's not their fault
Got pushed into a river
I drunk them it was not them drunk me
Don't blame the drinks you just blame me
and my instinctive personality

The river was cold and wet with water
Trees all around
The river was cold, wet with water
Trees all around
The playing field by a forest
The forest where I took your daughter
Trees all around

Won't you call my friends and ask for help?
Got pushed into a river
Spent the evening watching candles burn
Got high on matchstick fumes
I will hold you close until you're burning me
Won't you help me put this fire out
Just push me in a river, pull me out

Won't you help me heal my broken nose
Got pushed into a river
Won't you help me heal my broken nose
Got pushed into a river
I'll repeat this line, until you're hating me
Won't you help give me a broken nose
Just push me in a river
Set me free.
Track Name: Happy
Last night I was pissed off
Right now I'm just pissed
Tomorrow I'll be off
Yes tomorrow I'll be gone

I thought you were the one
To make me happy
To make me happy takes less than the world

Morning came with his regrets
He didn't seem much pleased
Tomorrow he'll give up
Yes tomorrow it will stop

He thought she was the one
To make him happy
To make him happy takes more than for me

Paving ways to golden days
But shining silver's gone
Tomorrow it will come, my happiness will come

We should all be happy tomorrow
We should all be happy

I thought you were the one
To make me happy
To make me happy takes less than the world

I hoped you were the one
To make me happy
To make me happy is your gift to me.
Track Name: The Harrowing Tale Of The Little Fly
There was once a little fly
Who didn't like to fly
He said it made his head go funny
Made his knees feel runny
Made his belly tingle inside

So he walked everywhere
All the other flies, how they stared
They took the piss out of him
'Cos he was always walkin' or runnin'
He never flew anywhere

One day a girl came along
It was Mary Lumb and her golden thong
She didn't look where she was goin'
And completely without knowin'
She squished him with her foot

She squished him with her foot
If he was French he would've said "zut alors!"
But the little fly didn't say nuthin'
'Cos his little heart stopped throbbin'
And he had spilled out all his guts

Here's the moral of this story
Here's the moral of this song
It's better that your head goes funny
It's better that your knees feel runny
Than to have no knees at all

If the fly had flown away
He would have been okay
If he had faced his fears
And not been such a queer
Then he would be happy and gay

So if you face up to your fears
You could live for many years
You could have lots more fun
But you'll get a saggy bum
And have lots of ringing in your ears.
Track Name: Morning Comedown
Going out tonight I take you by the hand
Going out tonight, cos we are in demand

So many people I want to see
Why don't they want to see me

Leave your light on when you go to sleep tonight
Close the curtains so they can't see you
Bite your thumbnail with your teeth to make you tired
Morning comedown


Going out tonight, she takes him by the hand
Going out tonight, cos she is in command

Saddam Hussein must be insane, in his brain
Tony Blair's got TB, just like me and Bennett, T.

Leave your light on when you go to sleep tonight
Close the curtains so they can't see you
Bite your thumbnail with your teeth to make you tired
Morning comedown


Leave your light on when you go to sleep tonight
Close the curtains so they can't see you
Bite your thumbnail with your teeth to make you tired
Morning comedown


Going home again, a taxi takes us there
Going home again cos work tomorrow scares
Going home again, we've had one for the road
Going home again, another night out older
Going home again, he steals a kiss goodnight
Going home again, don't forget to leave your light on.
