KEVIN COYNE LYRICS - ALBUM: Strange Locomotion 1971

Relaxing With Bonnie Lou (Kevin Coyne/Nick Cudworth)

Well I've got the fire, I've got the home

My girl's near me, I'm never alone

She's so nice and she knows just what to do, what to do

Oh I love you girl, I love you girl

Come here baby, you're out of this world

You're my girl

I'm relaxing with Bonnie Lou, oh yeah

When I get home, I'm tired and full of woe

She follows me wherever I go

Pat my hair, makes me sit on down, sit on down

Oh come here baby once again

I want to love you since I don't know when

I'm relaxing, relaxing, I'm relaxing with Bonnie Lou, oh yeah

Bonnie Lou she's a cutie though she's fat and old

I love her, she loves me

My girl's never cold

Come here baby, oh show me what you can do

I've got my beady eyes on you

I want to relax, I want to relax with my Bonnie Lou

Well Bonnie Lou she's a cutie though she's fat and old

I love her, she loves me

My girl's never cold

So come here baby, show me what you can do

I've got my beady eyes on you

I'm waiting here, waiting for you to open the door

Yes I love her, she loves me

She knows, she knows what to do

I'm relaxing, relaxing, with my Bonnie Lou, oh yeah

Relaxing, with my Bonnie Lou

She knows just what to do

When I come home she's there

She knows how to care

Bonnie Lou, my Bonnie Lou (x2)


Some Dark Day (Kevin Coyne/Nick Cudworth)

They say that women are made of bliss , a ll lips and eyes to flash

All ears of gold and perfect beauty showing, it's all trash

They say that God has arms of Heaven, smashing crutches laughing

One hundredweight of fleeces all chaste for his creation

But

Chorus: They're wrong (x4)

And some dark day (x2)

They're going to find they're lying

They say that money makes nasty men , c rushes hearts inside us

They shout out chunks of history and St Paul to guide us

I've heard my mother say: "Son, help grown ladies cross the road"

Though she doesn't realize grown ladies crush her toes

Chorus

Some loud mouth speaks of perfect sex, all sweating, muscles coming

I don't know where they got the lie, I just see rooms all rocking

When people say "Shake hands and smile", I see the beast all hairy

All they see is a golden mirror, a landscape, lakes and fairies

But

Chorus

My father says "You must not know because we know already"

He prefers the greenest kept right down, he likes his cakewalk steady

I do believe that school taught me to remember sticks and lashes

Though people tell me school was nice, all flags and toothy flashes

Chorus

Well OK new boy hold my hand, wear the helmet of the dawn

Kiss the smart man close to you, watch his fist ooh here it comes

They say your vicar wants to help but that is not true

He's like the rest all in the pen, a pocket's waiting for you

They're wrong (x4)

And some dark day (x2)

You're going to find they're lying

OK


Hot Potato (Kevin Coyne/Dave Clague/Nick Cudworth)

My baby's a Hot Potato

This song's about a girl called Hot Potato

She couldn't learn to dance so I had to make her

And I call her my Hot Potato cause she can dance all across the floor

There it goes

My baby's a Hot Potato

She can't dance but I know I'll make her

She's so dumb, she can't see

Her lack of ability is killing me

She's gotta be a Hot Potato (x2)

Soon

She's got to learn to rock

She's got to learn to roll

She's got to learn to move

She's got to get some soul

Oh baby get up off that chair

Hold my hand, you'll soon be there

Dance with me baby

My baby's a Hot Potato

You gotta be a Hot Potato yeah yeah yeah

I'm gonna take you, take you downtown

You'll learn to rock, you'll learn to shake the floor

My baby's a Hot Potato

Bound to be a Hot Potato yeah yeah yeah

Oh she's dancing now

Oh she learnt so fast

Down and around she goes

Up and down, round and round (x2)

Oh Hot Potato Hot Potato

So you've learned, you know what to do

Now you're my girl, you're gonna love me true

I'm gonna kiss you, I'm gonna take you out

Gigolo (Kevin Coyne/Nick Cudworth)

I'm honest if I think I say baby

That I wouldn't lie for a day, no

Oh if I had, baby, if I had your money

I don't believe I would steal, no no

If I could smell, touch and feel, yes

The crackling crispness baby

The evil newness of your money money money

Of your money money money

I know I never stoop so low, so low

To lace your shoes, lace your shoes and brush your clothes no

And wash your windows

And make your plants grow

If I had your money, oh money, lovely money, yes, alright

But you, you make it all so very clear to me

That you think, thay you think my postulations dear

But you keep on paying baby

And I keep on praying baby for your money, for your money

I have a friend who tells me daily , yeah daily

That you're a bitch baby and not a lady

She says you're sour and I send her flowers with your money , with your money

So beware and lock your strong room

Before its existence makes you a tomb , oh to die in baby

That's dark and chilling, that holds your meanness not your money

Baby not your money (x2)

Baby yes


I'm All Aching (Kevin Coyne/Nick Cudworth)

I'm all aching baby

But baby I'm leaving you

You know I've got to fly tonight

Rush from the anger

The sadness and the lies

Only now I hear you sigh, hear you sigh

Showing too much pain baby

Was a thing we never did

Now I know I was a fool

Loosing you meant the end of all I ever had

Crushed our sweetness

Turned it sour, turned it bad

And I know, and I know

I'm all aching baby

But darling I'm leaving you

You know I've got to fly tonight

Loosing you meant the end of all I ever had

Crushed our sweetness

Turned it sour, turned it bad

And I know, yes I know

If I could speak to you

Baby without fear

Talk with warmth instead of tears

Though we're both wrong darling

We will go on and on

Because no-one they want to loose

I'm all aching baby

But baby I'm leaving you

You know I've got to fly tonight


Strange Locomotion (Kevin Coyne/Dave Clague/Nick Cudworth)

Oh yes now

Strange locomotion over the ocean baby, you can't find no better place

Strange locomotion

If you got the notion baby, get on over the ocean

Take yourself a big fat plane, get some strange locomotion

Up and down, way off the ground, strange, strange, strange locomotion (x2)

Way over the ocean baby, we've left the land and sea

Got some strange locomotion, alright now

Oh well up and down, round and round, strange, strange, strange locomotion

Up and down, way off the ground, strange, strange, strange locomotion

Over the ocean baby, we found new land, new sea

Strange locomotion

I've got a notion baby

Take some strange locomotion baby

It'll be just for you and me

Take some strange locomotion

Strange locomotion baby (x6)


Shake my Hand (Kevin Coyne)

I've seen you baby with another boy

Only nine years old

Don't you think the difference shows

I'm only twenty-eight baby

And I have a little style

I've experienced just a few little things

I could make it in a while

If you let me hold your hand

Shake your hand, hold your hand

Alright, I'm a loser baby

I don't wear short pants and socks

Don't have a lot of curly hair

Tumbling down in golden locks

Maybe you'll have a way with him

How should I really know?

But if you have a way with me

Then baby please let it show

Come on

Shake my hand (x3)

Hold my hand

I've seen your blood boiling baby

When I accused you of stealing children

But you're, you're, you don't like the lies

You don't like it baby I put you in the wilderness

Thrown you among the thistles baby

Down among the brown weeds

To see you running with those youngsters

Makes a smart man bleed

Oh let me hold your hand

Hold your hand (x3)

Just one little note to you baby

Written on an exercice book before I go

Little blue one you've never seen before

Lights from the top and lights through the bottom

Written in bright red ink

It says the teacher stinks

Forty-five and with a boy of nine

She wants to get with somebody who can really do time

And shake her hand

Shake her hand (x2)

Hold her hand

Shake her hand, I'll shake yours (x3)

Shake her hand

(big thanks to Jim Phelan)


Lonesome Ride (Kevin Coyne/Nick Cudworth)

I got to ride, lonesome ride (x2)

I got to keep traveling till my baby's by my side

Met a girl the other day

I met a girl the other day

She stole my mind, she tore my heart away

I wonder if she'll return

Yes I wonder if she'll return

She's stolen away my love,alright

I'm crying down the street

I'm crying baby walking down the street

My head is aching, I've got the blues in my feet

Nobody seems to care

Nobody baby, nobody seems to care

I wonder where you are baby, I wonder where

I have to ride, lonesome ride (x2)

I've got to keep going till my baby's by my side


Fetch me my Woman (Kevin Coyne/Dave Clague/Nick Cudworth)

Fetch me my woman

I just want her near me now

Don't want any any anybody else

Just want her near me now

Want her right by my side, yes I do, yes I do

Keep a good boy satisfied

She left me today

Oh she has caused my heart to bleed

Oh fetch me my woman, oh yes, oh yes, oh yes

That'll fetch you woman

Since you've not been around

Everybody's talking crazy at me

She might be home today, tomorrow (x2)

She might be home today

Fetch me my woman

I know she wants me to have my way

Wants me to have my way

Fetch me my woman

Here she comes (x2)

She went up North

Just for a few days (x2)

But she never returned

I know she has her secret ways of teasing me

I'd rather be dead if she's gonna tease me

Any more, any more

She got her long black hair

I just can't stand the pain anymore, anymore

Fetch me my woman (x4)

Long black hair not pleasing me
