Lyrics

Band on the Run
05:13
Stuck inside these four walls, sent inside forever
Never seeing no one nice again like you
Mama you, mama you

If I ever get out of here
Thought of giving it all away
To a registered charity
All I need is a pint a day
If I ever get out of here
If we ever get out of here

Well, the rain exploded with a mighty crash as we fell into the sun
And the first one said to the second one there I hope you're having fun
Band on the run, band on the run
And the jailer man and Sailor Sam were searching everyone
For the band on the run
Band on the run
Band on the run
Band on the run

Well, the undertaker drew a heavy sight seeing no one else had come
And a bell was ringing in the village square for the rabbits on the run
Band on the run, band on the run
And the jailer man and Sailor Sam were searching every one
For the band on the run
Band on the run
Band on the run
Band on the run

Well, the night was falling as the desert world began to settle down
In the town they're searching for us everywhere but we never will be found
Band on the run, band on the run
And the County Judge, who held a grudge, will search forevermore
For the band on the run
Band on the run
Band on the run
Band on the run
Jet
04:09
Jet, Jet, Jet
I can almost remember their funny faces
That time you told them you were going to marrying soon
And Jet, I thought the only lonely place was the moon

Jet, Jet, Jet
Was your father as bold as the sergeant major
How come he told you that you were hardly old enough yet
And Jet, I thought that the major was a lady suffragette

Jet, Jet, Jet
Ah Mater want Jet to always love me
Ah Mater want Jet to always love me
Ah Mater, much later

Jet

And Jet, I thought the major was a lady suffragette

Jet, Jet
Ah Mater want Jet to always love me
Ah Mater want Jet to always love me
Ah Mater, much later

Jet
With the wind in your hair of a thousand laces
Climb on the back and we'll go for a ride in the sky
And Jet, I thought that the major was a little lady suffragette

Jet, Jet, Jet
And Jet, you know I thought you was a little lady suffragette

Jet
A little lady
My little lady, yes
Bluebird
03:24
Late at night when the wind is still
I'll come flying through your door
And you'll know what love is for

I'm a bluebird
I'm a bluebird, I'm a bluebird, I'm a bluebird
yeah, yeah, yeah
I'm a bluebird, I'm a bluebird, I'm a bluebird
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Touch your lips with a magic kiss
And you'll be a bluebird too
And you'll know what love can do

I'm a bluebird
I'm a bluebird, I'm a bluebird, I'm a bluebird
yeah, yeah, yeah
I'm a bluebird, I'm a bluebird, I'm a bluebird
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Bluebird, ah ha
Bluebird, ah ha
Bluebird

Fly away through the midnight air
As we head across the sea
And at last we will be free

You're a bluebird
You're a bluebird, you're a bluebird, you're a bluebird
yeah, yeah, yeah
You're a bluebird, you're a bluebird, you're a bluebird
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Bluebird, ah ha
Bluebird, ah ha
Bluebird

And at last we will be free
Bluebird, you and me

Bluebird, ah ha
Bluebird, ah ha
Bluebird

All alone on a desert island
We're living in the trees
And we're flying in the breeze

We're the bluebirds
We're the bluebirds, we're the bluebirds

Singing bluebird, ah ha
Bluebird
Mrs. Vandebilt
04:41
Down in the jungle living in a tent
You don't use money, you don't pay rent
You don't even know the time
'cause you don't mind

Ho Hey Ho...

When your light is on the blink
You never think of worrying
What's the use of worrying?
When your bus has left the stop
You'd better drop your hurrying
What's the use of hurrying?

Leave me alone Mrs. Vandebilt
I've got plenty of time of my own

What's the use of worrying?
What's the use of hurrying?
What's the use of anything?

Ho Hey Ho...

What's the use of worrying?
What's the use of hurrying?
What's the use of anything?

Ho Hey Ho...

When your pile is one the wane
You don't complain of robbery
Run away don't bother me
What's the use of worrying?
What's the use of anything?

Leave me alone Mrs. Washington
I've done plenty of time on my own

What's the use of worrying?
What's the use of hurrying?
What's the use of anything?

Ho Hey Ho...
Let Me Roll It
04:50
You gave me something, I understand
You gave me loving in the palm of my hand

I can't tell you how I feel
My heart is like a wheel
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you

I want to tell you and now's the time
I want to tell you that you're going to be mine

I can't tell you how I feel
My heart is like a wheel
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you

You gave me something, I understand
You gave me loving in the palm of my hand

I can't tell you how I feel
My heart is like a wheel
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you
Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you
Mamunia
04:50
Mamunia, Mamunia, Mamunia
Mamunia, Mamunia

The rain comes falling from the sky
To fill the stream that fills the sea
And that's where life began for you and me

So the next time you see rain it ain't bad
Don't complain it rains for you
The next time you see L.A. rainclouds
Don't complain, it rains for you and me

Mamunia, Mamunia, Mamunia
Mamunia, Mamunia

It might have been a bright blue day
But rainclouds had to come this way
They're watering everything that they can see

A seed is waiting in the earth
For rain to come and give it birth
It's all he really needs to set him free

So the next time you see L.A. rainclouds
Don't complain, it rains for you

So lay down your umbrellas
Strip off your plastic macs
You've never felt the rain, my friend
Till you've felt it running down your back

So the next time you see rain it ain't bad
Don't complain it rains for you
The next time you see L.A. rainclouds
Don't complain, it rains for you and me

Mamunia, Mamunia, Mamunia
Mamunia, Mamunia
No Words
02:34
You want to give your love away
And end up giving nothing
I'm not surprised that your black eyes are gazing

You say that love is everything
And what we need the most of
I wish you knew that's just how true my love was

No words for my love

You're burning love, sweet burning love
It's deep inside
You mustn't hide your burning love
Sweet burning love, your burning love

You want to turn your head away
And someone's thinking of you
I wish you'd see it's only me
I love you

No words for my love
Helen Wheels
03:47
Said farewell to my last hotel, it was never much kind of abode
Glasgow town never brought me down when I was heading out on the road
Carlisle city never looked so pretty and the Kendal freeway's fast
Slowdown driver, want to stay alive, I want to make this journey last

Helen, hell on wheels, ain't nobody else gonna know the way she feels
Helen, hell on wheels, and they never gonna take her away

M6 south down to Liverpool, where they play the west coast sound
Sailor Sam he came from Birmingham, but he never will be found
Doing fine when a London sign greets me like a long lost friend
Mister Motor won't you check her out, she's got to take me back again

Helen, hell on wheels, ain't nobody else gonna know the way she feels
Helen, hell on wheels, and they never gonna take her away

Got no time for a rum and lime I wanna get my right foot down
Shake some dust off of this old bus I gotta get her out of town
Spend the day upon the motorway where the carburettors blast
Slow down, driver, wanna stay alive I wanna make this journey last

Helen, hell on wheels, ain't nobody else gonna know the way she feels
Helen, hell on wheels, and they never gonna take her away
Picasso's Last Words (Drink to Me)
05:49
The grand old painter died last night
His paintings on the wall
Before he went he bade us well
And said goodnight to us all

Drink to me, drink to my health
You know I can't drink any more
Drink to me, drink to my health
You know I can't drink any more

3 o'clock in the morning
I'm getting ready for bed
It came without a warning
But I'll be waiting for you baby
I'll be waiting for you there

Drink to me, drink to my health
You know I can't drink any more
Drink to me, drink to my health
You know I can't drink any more

Jet

Ho Hey Ho...
Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five
05:28
Oh, no one ever left alive
In 1985, will ever do
She may be right, she may be fine
She may get love, but she won't get mine 'cause I got you
Oh I, oh I
Well, I just can't get enough of that sweet stuff
My little lady gets behind

Ah, my mama said the time would come
When I would find myself in love with you
I didn't think, I never dreamed
That I would be around to see it all come true
Oh I, oh I
Well, I just can't get enough of that sweet stuff
My little lady gets behind

Oh, no one ever left alive
In 1985, will ever do
She may be right, she may be fine
She may get love, but she won't get mine 'cause I got you
Oh I, oh I
Well, I just can't get enough of that sweet stuff
My little lady left behind
