Lyrics
have you seen the rabble
heading West?
those melancholy faces
in their Sunday best
it can't be true
but baby - it's me and you...oh no
dry your tears with dollars then we'll leave them out to hang
bought and sold,too old,too cold - going out without a bang
we know there's no tomorrow while we're living for today
here it comes beat the drums - it's time to look the other way
have you seen the rabble
heading West?
those melancholy faces
in their Sunday best
it can't be true
but baby - it's me and you...oh no
Vika in a taxi with a picture of the Pope
London bound,the mighty pound
knickers down shot full of dope
it's ancient and it's modern
exactly as it seems
the neighbourhood is sleeping
double-glazed to all her screams
have you seen the rabble
heading West?
those melancholy faces
in their Sunday best
it can't be true
but baby - it's me and you...oh no
I wake up in the darkness
with a vision of a map
point to point all round the joint
it shows the way out of this trap
the path into the future is finally exposed
acceptance,love,a sense of calm
shut it up this case is closed.
hey,hey,hey
have you seen the rabble
heading West?
those melancholy faces
in their Sunday best
it can't be true
but baby - it's me and you...oh no

Nice to
see you Johnny Boy - haven't heard much from you lately.
Great groove to this and has the feel of a 'grower'. Caught most of the lyrics and they're good. Love the drums and dragging rhythm which gives it a great feel. Vocals sounding very clear too. Downloaded. Thanks.
Cheers
Len

Len is right about the drag. Very cool song and you're vocals are always so great.

Man, you can sing! I would've downloaded this too, but your hatred for your fellow man has stopped me dead in my tracks. I'll check back to see if you change your mind.

Hi BPJ
This is a good full sound you've got here and it has a Beatle-esque sound to it in parts like 'Lucy in th...etc' lyrics are a bit different to theirs tho LOL.. but written in a similar vein; excellent none the less and the vocal sounds great, cheers M

I Don't Know, Johnny...
This wee draggin', swaggin' tune reminds me a lot more of Mott and his Hooples when they was... high... up on the charts.

Nicely done.

Stay cool... but not *too* cool. ;)

Deranged arranger
and I definitely need the name of your doctor! Monster ballad gone wrong - in the best possible way. If more producers thought like this there would be a whole lot less music made but it would all be weird woolly & maybe wonderful. Lurchin to churchin
