Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me) (Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel) You've done it all, you've broken every code
and pulled the Rebel to the floor
You spoilt the game, no matter what you say
for only metal - what a bore!
Blue eyes, blue eyes, how come you tell so many lies?

Come up and see me, make me smile
Or do what you want, run on wild

There's nothing left, all gone and run away
Maybe you'll tarry for a while
It's just a test, a game for us to play
win or lose, it's hard to smile
Resist, resist, it's from yourself you have to hide

Come up and see me, make me smile
Or do what you want, run on wild

There ain't no more, you've taken everything
from my belief in Mother Earth
How can you ignore my faith in everything
when I know what Faith is and what it's worth
Away, away, and don't say maybe you'll try

Come up and see me, make me smile
Or do what you want, run on wild

Crawl Everyone here could be a millionaire
Just take these wings and fly up into the air
Oh, you're wondering where you heard this before
It wasn't really like that

This man is certain that this place is his home
It's time for him to crawl back under his stone
Oh remember when he said this before?
But it wasn't really like that

I'm not even sure if we can still be just friends
You stopped me once and you could do it again
Okay, you're right, I haven't changed from before
But it wasn't really like that

Just listen now instead of thinking over things I said
Oh, years and years ago
I stole and of course I lied, yes to you
But you must see why you couldn't just be told
There were some things I had to do
Say that again and I'll kill you!

Corduroy And now I've kissed you, I'll show you how I've missed you
Before you even say a word, I already heard
No, someone told me, but don't speak now just hold me
You wandered up a cul-de-sac, and now you've come back

So did you leave him? I'm sure you didn't deceive him
Just the same you're here today, wanting to stay
Have I upset you? Well I tried hard to forget you
Now you say "Look, I came, let's try again..."

I'll make you laugh, when you see this photograph
It's not from that day, I threw all those away
Its just some boy, probably dressed in corduroy
He grew up fast, but you've not changed at all

How can I trust you? No, I'm not trying to rush you
But I was here when you ran; I don't think I can
I won't desert her and I'm not about to hurt her
I worshipped you once before, and you slammed the door

I'll make you laugh, when you see this photograph
It's not from that day, I threw all those away
Its just some boy, probably dressed in corduroy
He grew up fast, but you've not changed at all
