      1.1. London Town
 
 
Walking down the sidewalk on a purple afternoon
I was accosted by a barker playing a simple tune
Upon his flute - toot toot toot toot
Silver rain was falling down
Upon the dirty ground of London Town
People pass me by on my imaginary street
Ordinary people it's impossible to meet
Holding conversations that are always incomplete
Well, I don't  know
Oh where are there places to go
Someone somewhere has to know
I don't know
Out of work again the actor entertains his wife
With the same old stories of his ordinary life
Maybe he exaggerates the trouble and the strife
Well, I don't know
Oh, where are there places to go
Someone somewhere has to know
Crawling down the pavement on a Sunday afternoon
I was arrested by a rozzer wearing a pink balloon
About his foot - toot toot toot toot
Silver rain was falling down
Upon the dirty ground of London Town
Someone somewhere has to know
Silver rain was falling down
Upon the dirty ground of London Town

      1.2. Cafe On The Left Bank
 
 
Cafe on the left bank, ordinary wine
Touching all the girls with your eyes
Tiny crowd of Frenchmen round a TV shop
Watching Charles de Gaulle make a speech
Dancing after midnight, sprawling to the car
Continental breakfast in the bar
English-speaking people drinking German beer
Talking far too laud for their ears
Cafe on the left bank, ordinary wine
Touching all the girls with your eyes
Dancing after midnight, sprawling to the car
Cocktail waitress waiting in the bar
English-speaking people drinking German beer
Talking way too laud for their ears
 
 
      1.3. I'm Carrying
 
 
By dawn's first light I'll come back to your room again
With my carnation hidden by the packages
I'm carrying, something
I'm carrying something for you
Ah, long time no see baby, sure has been a while
And if my reappearance lacks a sense of style
I'm carrying, something
I'm carrying something for you
I'm carrying
I'm carrying, can't help it
 
I'm carrying
I'm carrying something for you
 
 
      1.4. Backward Traveller
 
 
Hey, did you know that I'm
Always going back in time
Rhyming slang, auld lang syne my dears
Through the years
I am the backwards traveller
Ancient wool unraveller
Sailing songs, wailing on the moon
 
And we were sailing songs, wailing on the moon
Wailing on the moon

      1.5. Children Children
 
 
I know a tiny waterfall
A magic little place
Where we can play together
And watch the fishes race
Children children where are you
Hiding in the forest playing in the rain
I hope you're not too far away
For me to see again
I know where there's a fairy
Who will invite us all to tea
But she won't let me in alone
You'll have to come with me
Children children where are you
Hiding in the forest playing in the rain
I hope you're not too far away
For me to see again
I know a tiny waterfall
A magic little place
Where we can play together
And watch the fishes race
Children children where are you
Hiding in the forest playing in the rain
I hope you're not too far away
For me to see again
 
 
      1.6. Girlfriend
 
 
Girlfriend I'm gonna tell your boyfriend
Tell him exactly what you're doing
Tell him what you do to me
Late at night when the wind is free
Girlfriend
Girlfriend I'm gonna show your boyfriend
Show him the letters I've been saving
Show him how you feel inside
Then our love couldn't be denied
And we're gonna have to tell him
You'll only be a girlfriend of mine
Till the river stops a-flowin'
Till the wind doesn't wanna blow
Till the Flowers stop a-growin'
Till my love doesn't want to know
Girlfriend we'd better tell your boyfriend
Tell him exactly what we're doing
Tell him what he needs to know
Or he may never let you go
Yes, we're gonna have to tell him
You'll only be a girlfriend of mine
Till the rivers stop a-flowin'
Till the wind doesn't wanna blow
Till the flowers stop a-growin'
Till the ocean's a sea of snow

      1.7. I've Had Enough
 
 
You're talking to me from the back of the car
And I can't get nothing right
And then you wonder why I stand at the bar
Day and night
Chorus
	I've had enough
	I can't put up with any more
	No no no no no no no
	I've had enough
	I can't put up with any more
	No no no no no no no
You stand behind me with a watch in your hand
And I can't get nothing done
Well, people tell me you're a punctual man
But come on
 
Chorus
I earn the money and you take it away
When I don't know where you're from
I should be worried but they say
It'll pay for a bomb.
 
Chorus
 
I've had enough
Baby you know sometimes you get a little weary
But if it ever happens honey
You just come along to me
Because you know
 
Chorus
 
 
      1.8. With A Little Luck
 
 
With a little luck we can help it out
We can make this whole damn thing work out
With a little love we can lay it down
Can't you feel the town exploding
Chorus
	There is no end to what we can do together
	There is no end
	The willow turns his back on inclement weather
	And if he can do it, we can do it, just me and you
And a little luck we can clear it up
We can bring it in for a landing
With a little luck we can turn it on
There can be no misunderstanding
 
Chorus

                          ** Wings ***
 
 
With a little push, we could set it off
We can send it rocketing skywards
With a little love we could shake it up
Don't you feel the comet exploding
 
With a little luck, with a little luck, with a little luck
 
Repeat verse one
With a little love, we can set it off
We can send it rocketing skywards
With a little luck, we could shake it up
Oh yeah
 
Repeat verse one
 
Repeat verse three
 
 
      1.9. Famous Groupies
 
 
All stand back, let the people see
Take a snap of the famous groupies for me
Behold the famous groupies
They are alike as two peas
And where the other goes, the other goes
But though the famous groupies
Are only paid in rupees
Nobody knows what the famous groupies know
And nobody goes where the famous groupies go
There was a bongo player
Who kept an extra layer
Of Dunlopillo mattress in his wan
But when the famous groupies
Arrived with their twin snoopies
Nobody saw which way the poor boy ran
Nobody does it like a famous groupie can
All stand back, let the people see
Take a snap of the famous groupies for me
There was a lead guitarist
Who lived in Epping Forest
And all he ever wanted was to blow
When the girls were with him
He never lost his rhythm
And nobody knows what the famous groupies know
Nobody goes where the famous groupies go
There was the classic story
Of a roadie nicknamed Rory
Who used to practice voodoo on the side
When the famous twosome
Suggested something gruesome
All that they found was a crater two miles wide
Which left the music business absolutely horrified
Ladies and gentlemen, those magnificent examples of
female pulchritude and luminosity, direct from their
global perambulations to the very boards of this
supremely magnificent proscenium arch - ladies and
gentlemen; I give you FAMOUS GROUPIES!

      1.10. Deliver Your Children
 
 
Well, the rain was a falling
And the gnound turned to mud
I was watching all the people
Running from the flood
So I started to prayin'
Though I ain't no prayin' man
For the Lord to come a helpin'
Knowing he'd understand
Deliver your children to the good good life
Give'em peace and shelter and a fork and knife
Shine a light in the morning and a light at night
And if a thing goes wrong you'd better make it right
Well, I had me a woman
She was good and clean
She spent all day with the washing machine
But when it came to lovin'
She was never around
She was out getting dirty
All over town
 
Chorus
Well, I was low on money
And my truck broke down
I was on my way to the lost and found
So I took it to a dealer
I said make it run
Well, I ain't got no money
But I got me a gun
I said you robbed me before
So I'm robbing you back
And if it don't put you straight
It'll put you on the right track
Well, I ain't no devil and I ain't no saint
But I can tell a dealer by the colour of his paint
 
Chorus
If you want good eggs
You gotta feed that hen
And if you wanna hear some more
Well, I'll sing it again
 
 
      1.11. Name And Address
 
 
Our love affair was over on the second day
You packed a bag and like a birdie flew away
Meanwhile I'm sitting here, I'm getting in a mess
If you want my love, leave your name and address
I used to love you baby, when I was your man
But maybe loving you is something no one man can do.
Meanwhile I'm sitting here, I'm getting in a mess
If you want my love, leave your name and address
Love to feel the tingle of your heavenly caresses
Love to intermingl, a lonely single without addresses
If you want my love, leave your name and address

But if it's all over baby, you know I'll understand
Maybe I'll hate to think of you with another man
Meanwhile I'm sitting here, I'm getting in a mess
If you want my love, leave your name and address
 
 
      1.12. Don't Let It Bring You Down
 
 
Though some things in life are hard to bear
Don't let it bring you down
Should the sand of time run out on you
Don't let it bring you down
Don't go down - don't go underground
Things seem strange, but they change
How they change
Up and down your carousel will go
Don't let it bring you down
Don't go down - don't get out of town
Get to know how it goes, how it goes
When the price you have to pay is high
Don't let it bring you down
 
 
      1.13. Morse Moose And The Grey Goose
 
 
Right on down at the bottom of the sea
Tell me are you receiving me?
My name is Morse Moose and I'm calling you
The Grey Goose was a steady boat
People said she'd never float
One night when the moon was high
The grey goose flew away
As we were sailing 'round the rocks
The mate took out his compass box
And said the wind is like a fox
But the grey goose flew away
When out upon the open sea
The Admiral, the Mate and me
Prepared to face eternity
But the grey goose flew away
She flew into the stormy sea
Davy Jones was calling me
But heading for tranquility
The grey goose flew away
