Dance Of The Bourgeoisie (Kevin Coyne - 1974?) (PEEL SESSIONS)

When the bourgeoisie dance, they dance belly to belly or bottom to bottom and trip over the television wire, pressing their chests against the double glazing

Oh how they dance and dance and dance, little circles on the lawn

Slight injections of ?? and Vicky Anderson senior and Glenn Miller

But wait! I am bourgeoisie, I am bourgeoisie, I am bourgeoisie myself! I am bourgeoisie myself!

And so, so what must I do? I must wear a mask ??


Dance Of The Bourgeoisie (reprise) (Kevin Coyne/Zoot Money - 1978) (DYNAMITE DAZE)

When the bourgeois dance, when the bourgeois dance, they're in a transe, when the bourgeois dance

Oh when the bourgeois dance, oh when the bourgeois dance, when the bourgeois dance

When the bourgeois dance

Goodnight everybody, sleep well, is it a doll or is it a baby?

Just kick it away

Could be a cat

Notice that cat has still got his balls

Keep the glass

Hi everybody, goodnight everybody (x8)

Goodnight


Dark Dance Hall (Kevin Coyne/Brian Godding - 1980) (BURSTING BUBBLES )

Working, talking to myself

Oh there's nobody else

Oh see the lights down below

Watch them swirl as they go

D.J. in leopard skin

Face all drawn and face all thin

Walking the line for you

What am I gonna do?

Monkey man on my back

I fell my spirit crack crack crack

Working and talking to myself

Sometimes there's no-one else

There was a little boy with cracked knees

Standing by the waters edge and he started to cry

Fedding swans Sundays, oh see the lovers they lay

Sweet sweet sweet memories

Oh I don't know what to say

All these lights getting in my way

Turn them down, don't let them shine

The darkness is mine all mine (x3)


Day and Night (Tom Liwa/Kevin Coyne - 1996) (KNOCKING ON YOUR BRAIN)

Everytime I look into your face, a little shadow seeps through

But most of the time I can see that loving glow and that light and that glow is the real you

Chorus: Day and night (x3)

I want to see the real you day and night, day and night

I wear a mask in the morning, sometimes l'm very very very very down

But then you smile and in a little while l'm dancing with fire, desire and love for you, love for you

Chorus (x2)

Fire and love, all for you, take my heart, my soul, it's all for you, day and night

Chorus

There's all of this love, it never goes away, I believe it'll last a lifetime (x2)

Chorus (x4)


Day to Day (Kevin Coyne/Brian Godding - 1980) (BURSTING BUBBLES )

There's a mistery land I can't find

On the borders of peace of mind

And the mirrors kindly shine

And the rivers they run with wine

Run with wine (x4)

I know you're happy

You're all smiling now

I can see you dancing how how

How you shine, how you squeal

I realise that's how you feel

That's how you feel (x4)

Misery man, that's not me

I may one day be eternally happy

I may raise up my little soul

I may find my little goal

My little goal (x3)

I'm just living from day to day (x2)

I'm just a diary, hear what I say

I'm truly living from day to day (ad lib)


Dead Dying Gone (Kevin Coyne - 1979) (BABBLE)

You sleep, you wake, there's nothing more, you wake

I'm not dead for heavens sake (x2)

Chorus: I'm dead, I'm dying, I'm gone (x2), I can't carry on

You say, you know

You rule every show

I'm here, I'm gonna stay

You'll never change me anyway

Chorus

You cream and you scream, you dare to see me

I'm not like you, can't you see, I'm not you and you're not me

Chorus

Nightmares I have none, I am the chosen one

Slippered fools die in bed

I'm the one that's got the head

Dead and dying, I'm gone

I am dead and dying, I'm gone

Can't carry on (x2)

What's the point of carrying on? (x2)


Debutante (Kevin Coyne - 1979) (ELVIRA )

I'm a debutante, I wear pink and gold, I'm quite young though I feel quite old

With my pinky smile, my tight golden hair, my big smile floats everywhere

I've just met a duchess and my mother was proud, she laughed to herself but it wasn't too loud

She said "Good girl", and she took my hand, she said "Your father is a judge and judges understand"

He doesn't understand a fucking thing (I swore!), he doesn't understand a fucking thing

Oh but l'm a debutante and the future looks bright, there'll be no mornings, just perpetual light

And the light will bum as long as I am good, I'm flesh and bone and I'm not wood

But my father says and my Mummy agrees, I've got nice curly hair and nice plump knees

They don't understand a fucking thing (x2)

But I'm a debutante, I'm a debutante (repeat)


Deep the Darkness (Kevin Coyne - 1995) (CRAZY FRANK)

Walking down the street, I'm a stranger here

Looking everywhere for your face so clear

Another bad argument and I'm down again

Another ragged and lonely man

Chorus: How deep the darkness, how deep the pain (x2)

Rain rain rain (x2).

How deep the darkness, how deep the pain (x2)

I've messed things up and I'm all alone

We used to have such a perfect home

But now I'm drifting on stormy seas

Not even my dog recognises me

Chorus

How deep the darkness, how deep the pain (x2)

Some day some way, I'm going to find a perfect day

I'm going to seek the clouds so pure, I'm going to open up squeaky heavens door

I'm going to move on if I can

I'm going to become a pearl of a man

And I hope darling you understand in that lonely house back there cause

Chorus


Delightful (Kevin Coyne - 2004) (DONUT CITY )

There's nothing more delightful than you (2x)

You're little Miss Special who I idolise (2x)

You know there's nothing more exquisite than your touch (2x)

It burns up my heart and sets my mind aflame (2x)

You know there's nothing more delightfui than your eyes (2x)

They shine through the heaven and they show the way they shine through the heaven and they light up my day

You know there's heaven in your talk and in your walk (2x)

I'd be a fool without you with nowhere to go (2x)

Ilove you and that's all l can say yes I truly love you that's all I can, that's all I can say


Devil Calling (The) (Kevin Coyne - 1995) (CRAZY FRANK)

This is the devil calling from the pit of hell (x2)

Can't you smell the fire Frankie, can't you smell, can't you smell the fires of hell?

You're in your hotel room and you're sinking down

I can help you even more, make your head spin round

You're a long way from home and there's no-one here can help you

There's only me and I maybe can help you

Chorus: You're falling (x7) down (x3).

And you know there'll be nobody there to help you (x3)

But me

This is the devil calling, I hope you got the message clear

I hope you got the message, I hope it's ringing clear

I am your companion throughout your life, you can see me everywhere, feel me in the air

So don't you worry and don't you frown, I'll be there

Holding your claw, your hand, I can help you along

I'm the devil and I'm your best friend

Pick up that whisky, let's drink to the end

Chorus

You know that I'll be with you till the time has come for you to go

On the cellestial train to nowhere, I'll push you along and I'll rule the show

It's the devil calling, it's the devil calling

Turn out the lights (repeat)


Disappointed (poem) (Kevin Coyne - 1992) (BURNING HEAD)

The moon is a shrimp

The clouds lettuce leaves

The garden is the amazon

And the gardener a head-hunter

I hear mad grapes calling from the vineyard

The postman has just called with a crocodile

I'm disappointed

I wanted a girl friend


Doctor Lee [Doctor Love] (Kevin Coyne - 1969-71?) (THE SIREN YEARS)

Hello babe, how are you doing?

I know your face and style will be my ruin

You dress in gold and you're very old

But I know if I get to you, be bold

You'll live in a house

On top of the hill

It's been like a church

It will get your thrill

It's got big ??

?? on the top

Wait to get to the doorway baby, you will stop and bop

Oh you'll bop

Call me, call me Doctor Love (x3)

Well baby, what you're thinking of?

I got a surgery ??

It's some way up town but you'll soon get around

It's at the top of the stairs

Oh there ain't too many chairs

And the magazines are like you'll have a nice time

Oh I know what you're gonna do

When you get up there

Ring the bell, I'll be through

I will shake it, shake it all around

Oh come here baby, shake it off the ground

Call me, call me Doctor Love (x5)

Tell me what you're thinking of (x3)

A ripp is not my style

But I'll do my best in a while

I've got a little head

But I'm very good in bed

I'll do my best to please you

I'll do my best to tease you

I'm a load of rubbish

But babe you'd better hold it

Doctor Love (x3)

Call me Doctor Love

Oh what you're thinking of

Call me Doctor Love (x2)

Baby what you're thinking of

Call me Doctor Love

Yes what you're thinking of

Well come to my office babe

Oh climb up the stairs

I won't, oh I won't even confuse you in to many chairs

The magazines are like it's all woman's own

You won't have too much to read

Baby when I get you on your own

Call me Doctor Love (repeat)


Does Anybody Love Me (Kevin Coyne - 1993) (DARBY 93)

Does anybody love me, anybody cares, I don't think you do darling

Does anybody want me and leave me out in the cold, I don't think you do darling

You've got me standing up and prancing around like a baby in the middle of the street on a Saturday night

Does anybody love me, anybody cares, she says she loves me but it's just not right

She's threatening crazy things, things she's gonna do, I don't believe the venum in you

Threatening crazy things, things she's gonna do, I don't believe the venum in you

Does anybody love me, anybody cares, is there a voice that says Hello out there

Does anybody love me, anybody cares, self pity won't get me anywhere

But I'll try in my little way to find Mandalay, I'm there anyway, I'm there anyway

Does anybody love me, anybody cares, she doesn't ??

Does anybody need me, is anybody there, she says you're daft?? are you

Does anybody love me in this whole wide world, it's just self pity she says

But you used to be my little girl, she says I'm a feminist but it doesn't matter anymore

Oh I want to go oh to Mandalay but she won't let me come, she won't let me

What a miserable song this is, but Kevin, women have changed since your days, you must learn this, they do'nt take no shit they used to do, it's no good singing the blues and feeling sorry for yourself, you brought this on yourself. Did I? Who's that speaking? God! Oh ?? You brought all this on yourself son. Alright, never mind.

Anybody listens, anybody cares, poking fun at my trousers

Does anybody listen, does anybody care, ??

Does anybody listens, does anybody care, I smoke too much ??

Does anybody listen, does anybody care, are you up there?

I could be in Mandalay if I'd believed what my mother used to say but I just can't be in Mandalay ??

Does anybody listen, anybody care, I love you son

There's somebody up there, just you listen, you might hear him, somebody's up there and they care


Dog Latin (Kevin Coyne - 1973) (MARJORY RAZORBLADE)

Painted grottos all falling down

Prayer books and hymnals all strewn around

Father McCarthey cannot say his prayers

Locked all the doors and taken away the chairs

Chorus: And the cardinal still sits on his golden throne

Weeping and praying out in the hot day sun

Little white lamb of God trapped in the wires

Burning a brand new flame, a brand new fire.

Rome is empty, all the parishioners have gone

Everyone's on the night life, they're out having fun

Nobody's there, no nobody's home

A little black monkey's on the Sits on the Papal throne

Chorus

Dominus vobiscum et cum spiritu Gloria Gloria Kyrie eleison Christi eleison kyrie eleison ???????????????????????????????????? Amen

Nobody cares and why should they care

I don't want to see it, no I don't want to share

Yes I sing for free and nobody bothers me

No I'm not a penitent, I'm blind but I can see

Chorus

Dominus vobiscum et cum spiritu Gloria gloria Kyrie eleison, Christi eleison Kyrie eleison Christie eleison ad nauseum ???????????????????????????????????? Amen

And the cardinal still sits on his golden throne

Weeping and moaning out in the hot day sun

Little white lamb of God trapped in the wires

Burning a brand new flame, a brand new fire


Do not Shout at me Father (Kevin Coyne - 1974) (PEEL SESSIONS )

Do not shout at me Father, it is not my fault (x2)

I am not to blame (x3) for all this trouble

Don't shout at me Dad (x2)

Why do you keep on shouting at me?

I must agree, it's been a shame but I'm not to blame

Do not shout at me Father

Or if you shout once more I'll shout right back at you

And I've got so much respect for you

So much respect and you show nothing but disrespect

Don't shout at me Dad (x3)

Stop shouting at me Dad

Dad stop it, don't you shout, don't you shout

And you're getting much quieter now as the years go by it seems all the shouting you did quite early on in your teens and shortly after you were married was really a waste of time and if you think about it, if you keep on thinking about it, you will find out that it's all a waste of time

So

So

Do not shout at me Father, do not shout at me Dad (x2)

I haven't been bad (x2)

I was only born (x2)

And if you shout at me, the shouting will carry on


Don't Blame Mandy (Kevin Coyne - 1979) (MILLIONAIRES AND TEDDY BEARS)

Don't blame Mandy

Leave her alone

Don't laugh at her, don't sneer

She needs something better than

This locked life

You give her nothing

You make her cry

Leave her alone, she's flying on her own

She's flying on her own, flying on her own

Chorus: Don't blame Mandy, don't blame Mandy, don't blame Mandy, don't blame Mandy

Blame me.

Don't blame Mandy

You bully boy

Laughing at her

Behind her face you can see the pain

She has a brain

She has a mind

Something of her own

Don't be kind

Be true, be right

Leave her tonight

Let her fly

Don't make her cry

Chorus

Don't blame Mandy

She's going to another place

In another time

Where's she strong, where's she stronger

Arms up raised

Fighting on

Finding freedom

She's free as a bird (x2)

I can see it in her eyes

Please let her fly

Chorus

Oh Mandy, oh Mandy, oh Mandy, oh Mandy

Chorus


Don't Delude Me (Kevin Coyne - 1974) (BLAME IT ON THE NIGHT)

I am precious in my way

And I had a busy day

So don't delude me

Don't delude me

I have awful little time

And I want to hear the rhyme

Don't delude me (x2)

Present me with an easy flow

And then I will go

Don't delude me (x2)

You are the hatchet man

And I think you understand

So don't delude me

Don't delude me

Oh you delude me

And I think you're rude to me

Rude rude rude rude

You don't need to delude me

Don't delude me (x2)

If there's stars in your eyes

Then let them shine bright

Don't delude me (x2)

If you have a tricky foot

Then let me see that foot

Don't delude me (x2)

A pointed shoe in my back

Will make my spirit crack

So don't delude me

Don't delude me

Well give me chance to run

Give me chance to go

Don't delude me

Oh don't delude me

Oh don't you, don't you delude me

Don't delude me (x2)

I'm wondering in my way

I've had a busy day

Don't delude me (x2)

And the confusion that keeps me going

Is going and going

And I'm not going

Don't delude me (x2)

I am now rowing on a boat

In a river somewhere

And you're deluding me

You're deluding me

If I'm going to sink

Then please God let me sink

Don't delude me (x2)

Don't you delude, delude me

Don't delude me (x4)

I don't want to see sunshine when it's raining

I'm not concerned if you are telling lies

I'm much more concerned with the problem

That turns my dark eyes into light


Don't Forget Me (Robert Coyne/Kevin Coyne - 2002) (CARNIVAL)

Don't forget me now the rain has come (x4)

Send a boat, make it swift and strong (x3)

Send me an aeroplane, make it swift and sure (x3)

Send me an aeroplane, don't forget the parachute


Don't Get Lonely (Kevin Coyne - 1985) (MANEGE)

Don't get lonely, don't get sad, that's the worst thing that you ever had


Don't Know what to Do (Kevin Coyne/Brian Godding - 1980) (BURSTING BUBBLES )

There's a figure standing on a beach

Reaching out for the sea that she can surely reach

Dancing on islands, singing on coves

Within her head the memory of a rogue

It's not so funny, it's not so sad

But I'm feeling, I'm feeling bad about heaven

And I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do

I was walking inside my head

Memories of a darkened room, a little bed

Seething one day, smiling the next

I realise my problem's a little vexed

It's not so funny, it's not so sad

But you know I'm feeling, I'm feeling bad about heaven

And I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do, no

It seems like I'll always be the same

Not good at anything, I can't play games

I will try, though it's hard

You've got my message and my calling card

It's not so funny, it's not so sad

Oh but I'm feeling, I'm feeling bad about heaven

And I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do

What am I gonna do?


Don't Let me Down (Kevin Coyne - 1982) (ZECHE 82)

Yours to have and to hold

Don't let me down

I said don't let me down

Don't let me down

Yours to keep from the cold

Just let me feel

Well don't make me squeal

Just let me feel

Yours to always be there

Saying that you care

Saying that you're there

Saying that you care

You know I was not lying when I said I'm just a fool, just a fool (x2)

Just a fool, ??

You know I was not lying when I said I'm just a fool, just a fool (x2)

Yours to have and to hold

I said don't let me down (x3)

Yours to keep from the cold

Well always to feel

Always to feel (x2)

Yours to have and to hold

So don't let me down

Though sometimes I scream

The ?? of this dream


Don't Make Waves (Kevin Coyne - 1976) (HEARTBURN)

Don't make waves, waves could be your slave

Don't make waves, you have got to behave

Be a fool or a knave and you're making waves

If you want a friend, friends you've got to save

You're making waves, they could be your slave

You'd better behave

You're finishing lonely and blue, you're finishing with nothing to do

I said don't make waves, they will be your slave

Don't make waves, you've got to behave

Be a fool or a knave, they'll be your slave

Be a fool or a knave and you're making waves

Not a friend to look after you

Now that's the place where they all sit around drink cola, sometirnes put a little rum in it make themselves high and get happy and dance till well past midnight, wonderful place, such a marvellous place to be

Oh oh oh oh I'm going (3x)

I'm right there, I'm in there in the mind at least, in this dusty old office where I work from nine to five, I often drearn of this place, usually at the weekend I go there, after all it's a place I can truly relax

Oh oh oh oh bye bye, oh oh oh oh I'rn going (2x)

Donut City, now you might laugh at this but the donut is my favourite food, I like a little steak, I like a little crackers and stuff, I like all that greasy food,but oh give me a donut anytime it helps me relax, it helps me to get rid of those tensions, all those tensions, all those stresses that grind me down

Oh oh oh oh oh oh (4x) bye bye oh oh oh oh I'rn going

To Donut City, Donut City, looking pretty in Donut City, legs crossed, so relaxed, lean back, lean back, donut nurnber one goes in, donut nurnber two, donut number threeand donut number four oh I feel so good l've got to have some more, donut number five and donut number six, donut number seven ah that's the trick, makes me feel good

Oh oh oh oh bye bye, oh oh oh oh I'm going, I'm going, I'm going, I'm going, I'm going

Bye bye bye bye bye bye

It's so sticky in here, sticky on the floor, sticky on my hands, sticky on the table, sticky cups and saucers, sticky bottles, sticky sticky, but I like it, I love it, oh oh oh oh oh oh ah ah ah ah ah ah


Do the Birdcage Walk (Kevin Coyne/Achim Goettert - 1999) (OPERA FOR SYD, DREIEINIGKEITSKIRCHE)

Do the Birdcage Walk, do the Piccadilly Hop (x2)

Up and down Oxford Street, all around the shops

Do the Birdcage Walk, do the Piccadilly Hop

Down Trafalgar Square, up St-Martin's Lane (x2)

In my crocodile shoes, fighting off the pain

Do the Birdcage Walk, do the Lindy hop

Do the Birdcage Walk

Speak to me

Do the Birdcage Walk, do the Trafalgar Square

Do the St-Martin's Lane, one day you'll get there

Do the Marquee Club on a Saturday night

Country Joe and the Fish blowing out the lights

Do the Birdcage Walk, do the Trafalgar Square

Do the St-Martin's Lane, and you'll get there

Do the ??, Covent Garden too

All around London with those crocodile blues

With those crocodile blues

Do the Birdcage Walk, do the Trafalgar Square

The St-Martin's Lane, you might just get there

Do the Piccadilly Circus, do the Oxford Street

Walk around in 69 in your crocodile feet

In your crocodile feet


Drunk again (Friedl Pohrer/Kevin Coyne - 1995) (CRAZY FRANK)

Big Beryl's standing at my door, she's one of the helpless spoor, hasn't got no money, nowhere to go, can't even wear good clothes, can't put on a show, the factories closed, what can she do, there's nowhere to go but just to booze down to the pub Saturday afternoon, gonna drink away all the doom

She's drunk oh she's drunk, yes she's drunk, certainly, certainly drunk again

Yes shes drunk, drunk as a skunk, yes she's drunk, ah Beryl's drunk again

Cyril's walking round my garden, he keeps on saying I beg your pardon, his head's in a dream, he wants to scream but he can hardly speak, it seems that everything he does it seems to go wrong, he dreams of Rolls Royces cars, long queens and kings and clouds of blue but there's nothing else for him to do

He's drunk, he's got to get drunk, he's got to get drunk, got to get drunk again

He's got to get drunk, drunk as a skunk, this little punk's got to get drunk again

Beer and whiskey makes you frisky, it's the only thing to do

Beer and whiskey makes you frisky, it's good for me and you

Neville thinks he knows the daughter of the devil, it seems he sees her in his dreams at the foot of his bed every night when he switches out his light but I think hes crazy baying a tthe moon, it must be the air round here, soon everybodys going to go mad, what can we do, we've got to get drunk

Ah drunk,we've got to get drunk, drunk as skuns, we'll get drunk again, we've got get drunk, drunk as skunks, we little punks, we've got to get drunk again


Dynamite Days (Kevin Coyne - 1978) (DYNAMITE DAZE)

We know the Pope is too old to rock'n'roll and quite aware that he's got no soul

You see me and I stand outside the Palais de Dance, I'm rattling my bones, I'm pogoing, I'm giving my self a little chance these...

Chorus: Dynamite dynamite days, dynamite dynamite days, dynamite dynamite days

Oh I'm in a rage I'm in a rage I'm in a rage oh I'm in a rage waiting for the dynamite days.

Everybody here better hear what I say, I'm over forty but I'm gonna have my way

You little punks, come out to play

I'll bounce like a ball, I'll bounce like a ball, what do you say?

Chorus - Solo - Chorus x3

Revolution! Seen it all, seen it all before
