Sleeve

Flying Saucer She waited there just like she said she would
But it was all too much when she said that she loved me
I felt right there and then as if I could
Reach out and touch the stars above me

And I surrender
I can't forget her
I still remember
Every word she said

And I want her
She kind of launched a
Flying saucer
Right inside my head

There are a lot of things I thought I'd never do
But one look in her eyes and I knew what I was missing
That's why I thought I'd come and talk to you
Oh well you seem so wise, but I'm not even listening

Because my fireball
Is going to call
It's getting late
She knows I'll wait
Oh I surrender
I can't forget her
I still remember
Every word she said

She got me spinning
From the beginning
I see her face
In outer space
Oh I want her
She kind of launched a
Flying saucer
Right inside my head

Boing! Why do you say you care?
Well you don't show it
And you know it isn't fair
You just need someone to blame
Well "someone" is not me
But I know he'll be just the same

You'll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You'll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You'll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You'll come bouncing, bouncing back to me

I don't know what to believe
Last night you held me
Today you tell me you're going to leave
Oh, you've got so much to learn
Go if you must go
Oh, but I know you'll return

And you'll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You'll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You'll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You'll come bouncing, bouncing back to me

You'll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You'll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You'll come bouncing, bouncing back to me
You'll come bouncing, bouncing back to me

Love Slave I know what you're going to say
You want to do something scary today
Sure I want to have some fun
I just don't know about some of the things that you've done

But I'm your love slave
And you'll get what you crave

Oh you've got a crazy thirst
And every single kiss is just like the first
Oh you have sucked me dry
How many more times do you want me to try?

Because I'm your love slave
And you'll get what you crave

You know the things that you adore?
Well no one ever asked me to do that before
I want to be your special friend
I'm just kind of scared about the way it might end

But I'm your love slave
And you'll get what you crave

Sticky I don't want to hear it, there's nothing left to talk about
Get along, get along, get out
Get along, get along, get out of here

Well I give and you take, I think I made one big mistake
Now get along, get along, get out
Get along, get along, get out of here
Get along, get along, get out
Get along, get along, get out of here

Because I've put up with you for too long
I thought I could stick with you but I was wrong

Well I might be thick skinned, but I find your presence sickening
Now get along, get along, get out
Get along, get along, get out of here
Get along, get along, get out
Get along, get along, get out of here

Because I've put up with you for too long
I thought I could stick with you but I was wrong

And there's nothing left I want to say
There's nothing left I want to say
There's nothing left I want to say
There's nothing left I want to say

Except I've put up with you for too long
I thought I could stick with you but I was wrong

And there's nothing left I want to say
There's nothing left I want to say
There's nothing left I want to say
There's nothing left I want to say

The Queen Of Outer Space She's a mixed up girl from a different world
She's come, come, come, come, to a yellow sun
When she began she was a man
Go, go, go, go, like a dynamo

She's my colonel spider
You know she's a deep space rider
I feel beautiful beside her

She doesn't need air; she can breathe anywhere
Come, come, come, come, and you can have some
We like to chase through outer space
Go, go, go, go, you know

She's my colonel spider
She's a deep space rider
I feel beautiful beside her

She's my colonel spider
You know she's a deep space rider
I feel beautiful beside her
I feel wonderful beside her

No Christmas I wonder if you're going to ask me why I lied
I wonder if you're going to show you're angry with me
I wonder if I could explain this if I tried
I wonder if I'm going to know when you forgive me

When you forgive me, you forgive me, you forgive me
Will you stay with me, you stay with me, you stay with me?

And all those awful things you said at first
Don't shout, I understand, you're pretending
To punish me, well I'm listening so do your worst
I don't doubt that you're mad but it can't be ending

It can't be ending, it can't be ending, can't be ending
You're still pretending, still pretending, still pretending

Don't say we've reached the end. You can't be right
For goodness sake you must know I care about you
Please stay my best friend one more night
I couldn't face another day alone without you

Alone without you, alone without you, alone without you
I care about you, I care about you, I care about you

Alone without you, alone without you, alone without you
I care about you, I care about you, I care about you

Rocket (Mud) I just wanna tell you

Well well you changed your look
Took out your working class
And then they lined you up, for a Hollywood movie cast
You're after those, big cigars and motor cars
You thought you were a movie star
With other girls last, you sure are changing fast

When you, when you, when you were just sixteen
You were knocking at an agents' door
Because because because, the silver screens
Want a movie queen, that's poor
They gave you mixed up dreams, and picture dreams
You threw away your old blue jeans
With other girls last, they're using you

*Come on, come on, come on now
Rocket, I'm gonna launch you soon
Come on now Rocket
You're gonna reach the moon
You're gonna take off soon
You're gonna reach the moon
You know your time will come
I'll give you 3 2 1
Oh Rocket, I'm gonna launch you soon

Stay with us

I see you sitting in the soda store
All the cats will start as poor
What a life they're looking for
And hang the photgraphs on the wall
Oh but to me, you're still but sweet sixteen
Looking for your old blue jeans
I'm getting rid of Abigail Flats
I'll call you Rocket, forget the past

*Repeat with ad lib

Theme From Shaft (Isaac Hayes) Who's out there
Not sexless, It's an awesome man
Shaft
You're damned right

Who is the man
That would risk his life for his brother man
Shaft
If you dig it

*Who's the cop that won't cop out
When there's danger all about
Shaft
Right on
Let's leave this Shaft
This is a bad mother

Who's the frightened cat
He's a complicated man
No one understands him
Now they wanna - touch

If you dig it

*Repeat

I'm talking about Shaft
He's a complicated man
No one understands him
Now they wanna - touch

Chant Of The Ever Circling Skeletal Family (David Bowie) CHANT (6 times)

Brother

Boop-boop

Shake it up, shake it up

Move it up, move it up

Bra bra bra bra bra bra bra bra bra (repeat ad inf.)

Go Wild In The Country (Bow Wow Wow) I don't like you
I don't like your sound
I don't want to like you
I'm so brown

I don't want to
I don't want you to
I don't wanna want you
I'm so brown, I'm so brown

*I can get a tray
I don't need no hamburger
No take away
I want my own day
No bedroom scene
Or strawberry milk shake
I wanna pick

I don't look concerned
I don't want a baby
I'm so brown, I'm so brown

*Repeat without the last line

I'll sleep better
Now that's better
Slip into your dream
Need to be agreed, it's better for bums
You know we're in no hurry
Listen

**I'll go wild, I'll go wild in the country
Those things we lost
Are absolutely free
I'll go wild, I'll go wild in the country
Those things we lost
Are absolutely free

I think you're afraid
I only want sweet kisses
But she wants to go naked

** Repeat

I want her to hit me
'Cause I get sick
Got no one
She didn't want to kiss me
Didn't wanna kiss me

** Repeat

I can get a tray
I don't need no hamburger
No take away
I want my own day....
(ad lib)

U.F.O. (Theme Tune From TV)

Step Into Christmas (Elton John) Welcome to my Christmas song
I'd like to thank you for the year
So I'm sending you this Christmas card
To say it's nice to have you here
I'd like to sing about all the things
You eyes and mind can see
So hop aboard the turntable
Oh step into Christmas with me

Step into Christmas
Let's join together
We can watch the snow fall forever and ever
Eat, drink and be merry
Come along with me
Step into Christmas
The admission's free

Take care in all you do next year
And keep smiling through the days
If we can help to entertain you
Oh we will find the ways
So merry Christmas one and all
There's no place I'd rather be
Than asking you if you'd oblige
Stepping into Christmas with me
