Big Fun City Lyrics



Baby Hurricane - Flesh For LULU

Blue is the colour of my true lovers eyes
Black is the colour of her heart
I walked in the room with a smile on my face
I knew i was dead from start
Baby hurricane keeps her love on a chain
And a rattle snake charm in her hand
A knife for an eye
And fork for a tongue
A stranger in the strangest land

To weak to leave her
Only came here to get out of the rain
Pick me up and put me down again
Put me out of this pain

Baby Hurricane
Don't blow me down again
Oh bury me deep
Cos i wont sleep
No i wont sleep till i find you again
Baby Hurricane
Don't go walk in the rain

Oh your crocodile shoes are leaking
And theres nobody driving your train
Baby Hurricanes get wheels in her heels
And shes skating around on your face
Back water baby got washed down the drain
And landed in front of your face
Shes a trampolene
She scratches and screams
A razor strapped to her boot
Her brains in a sling
Shes a dangerous thing
And shes looking for someone to shoot

To weak to leave her
Only came here to get out of the rain
To weak to leave her
I cant decieve ya
Put me out of this pain

Baby Hurricane
Don't blow me down again
Oh bury me deep
Cos i wont sleep
No i wont sleep
Till i find you again
Baby Hurricane
Dont go walk in the rain
Oh your crocodile shoes are leaking
And theres nobody driving your train
Baby hurricane
Baby hurricane
Oh baby Baby hurricane
Baby hurricane


Cat Burglar - Flesh For LULU          Return

Well I'm just a cat burglar
Lonesome rooftop wanderer
Yeah I'm a wanderer
You'd better wake up slumberer
Who's rappin' at your window?

I'm lying on your persian carpet
I've been here for awhile
Meanwhile
At home on the dirty mattress at my baby's house
Cat burglar
It's only swag
I'm a wanderer
Better wake up slumberer
Cat burglar

Where are you going?
And just what will you do when you get there?
Cat burglar
He's an honest guy
He'd buy a house in St. John's Wood if he only could
It's all that I know
All that I know
I've just to get up and go
I'm a wanderer
Better wake up slumberer

Kick open that door 'cause I want more and I want it now

Anything that shines
You know it's got to be mine
Like a heartbeat
Ah, it's there all the time
All I know is a
All I know is a
All I know is a
All I that know is
All I know is a
All I that know I'm going to
S-S-St. John's Wood if I only could

You may have noticed that your stereo's gone
I took your TV too, and your silver
Cat burglar
I'll be coming right back for you
I'm a wanderer
Lonesome rooftop wanderer
Who's rappin' at your window?
Cat Burglar

If you really wanna know
What makes me get up and go
I'll give it to you straight

And lately things gone crazy

And you know sometimes you feel like you just gotta...
Gotta let go

I know ive asked you this several times before
And you always end up throwing me out the door
You say if you wanna stay
Then you better pray
Cos im feeling kinda funny
Dont like being stuck with no money
And i feel like i just gotta let go
Gotta let go

Yhen i asked to stay you just run away
Then You just run away
Oh my my run away
Probably found out by now
That im fifty five thousand miles away
And it would have been worthwhile
For just one of your smiles

And by the light in your eyes
It came as no surprise
Cos ive seen you once before
Hanging round my front door
And im really kinda lazy
And lately things gone crazy
And i feel like i just gotta let go let go
Gotta let go
Gotta let go
Gotta let go
Let go let go
Gotta let go
Let go let go
Well if you really wanna know i just gotta let go

Rent Boy - Flesh For LULU          Return

I got hope and got it bad
Look in my eyes
You'll see just what Iíve had
Save the kiss for the victim inside
Next thing you know your out on the street trying to hide
But you cant hide
You cant hide
You've got it all
Love has no fear
The closer you get the less you wanna hear
Don't apologise
Just stand there and lie

Your love is so big
I could tear it apart
Everything that you do
She's gonna use you
She wants your company
And she'll pay for it to

You got it all
You got it all

You've got a body thats burning inside
There taking you outside
The darkness decides
But it isn't all bad
And wasted today

You'll hold hands in the street
and watch ???

Everything that you do
She's gonna use you
And when shes talking
Lying on the floor

Ohhhhhhhhh
Everything that you do
Shes gonna use you
Cindys got a job for you
And theres bucks in it to

You got it all
Drive a fast car
Wooooh

You got it all
Drive a fast car to the edge of the world
Yeah love has no fear
You got it all
And the closer you get
The closer you get
The closer you get
The less you wanna hear

Ahh -You ainít sick
You know a bag of tricks
You got it all
Love has no fear

I got a hope
And got it bad

Golden Handshake Girl - Flesh For LULU          Return

I met you in a dream last night
Your coat was open so I slipped inside
Just like I never went away
It was only yesterday that I laid your ghost to rest
Now I'm lying in the gutter
On the street where you live
Trying to read a letter
A change for the better
This is not news to me
I know the world is your oyster
All the people you despise
Always turn their eyes to the Golden Handshake Girl
The Golden Handshake Girl

I saw you on TV last night
And suddenly you looked just right
Your stage pal Johnny's got the blues
Once a week for an answer
He's like some kind of cancer
And you know he'll be there 'till the end
And I'm no good at breaking down
I'm no good at breaking down
Well, I'm no good at breaking down
I'm no good at breaking down
Golden Handshake Girl
Well, it's gotta be a kiss off
Anything
Nothing at all
(Breaking down)
Breaking down
(Breaking down)
She's so good, she's so good, so good at breaking down

Hey, El Dorado
You got nothing left to borrow
Just weak in the knees
From the pain of departure
I try and get my hand away
But my fingers gonna curl
In the Golden Handshake Girl
And I'm no good at breaking down
I'm no good at breaking down
Golden Handshake Girl
Well, it's gotta be a kiss or
Anything
Nothing at all
She's so good at breaking down
At breaking down
Look at me I'm back on my back again
Oh excuse me I can't help cracking up again
She's so good, she's so good at breaking down
Oh, the Golden Handshake Girl
I'm no good at breaking down
Well, it's gotta be a kiss or
Anything
Nothing at all
She's so good at breaking down
The Golden Handshake Girl
I'm no good at breaking down
Well, it's gotta be a kiss or
Anything
Nothing at all
She's so good

Blue - Flesh For LULU

Love is walking and
Sometimes it crawls
Look at death and shes so ???
Another ocean
Another sky
If you come back you know the reason why

The sea is your mirror
And love is your weakness
I know that your heart is full of tears
The god of dreams whispered to me
Why am I so afraid
When you say
I am walking
With my eyes in the air
And when im talking you make me swear
I'm so blue
I'm so blue
I'm so blue
Without you

Temptation is coming any day
I hear them all say
No river is deeper than all of your love
Another ocean
And another sky
If you come back you know the reason why, why

The sea is your mirror
And love is your weakness
I know that your heart is full of tears
The god of dreams whispered to me
Why am I so afraid
When you say
I am walking
With my eyes in the air
And when im talking you make me swear
I'm so blue
I'm so blue
I'm so blue
Without you

I'm so blue
I'm so blue
Yeah im blue
Over you


Laundromat Kat - Flesh For LULU          Return

TV-AM no cigarettes
Crawl out the front door, what'd I forget?
It was Monday morning 10 o'clock
When she bought you down at the shop
Out on my rounds, let's go for a walk
I don't really mind if you spit when you talk
Tumble dryer, tumble dry
Guaranteed to get you high

Oh, hop on in!

Oh, this is a story of a girl I know

Will I ever let her go?
Pussy cat, pussy cat where you been?
Round and around in a washing machine
I said washing machine, washing machine
For a hundred spins and I'm almost clean
Tumble dryer, tumble dry
Guaranteed to get you high
It's only the law
I said "Have a nice day"
Don't go washin' your brains away
Pussy cat, pussy cat where you been?
Round and around in a washing machine
Oh yeah, you gotta go
Yeah, you gotta go
Uptown, 'round 'round
Pussy cat, pussy cat
We gotta go
Ah, everybody knows
Yeah
Aw, 'round and 'round

Laundromat cat gotta push off
Somebody ought to call the cop
Pussy cat, pussy cat where you been?
Round and around in a washing machine
I said washing machine, washing machine
Four hundred spins I'm almost clean
It's a tumble dryer for a laundromat cat
I hear him knockin', who's that?
Only the law
I said "Have a nice day"
Don't go washin' your brains away
Pussy cat, pussy cat where you been?
Round and around in a washing machine!


Just One Second - Flesh For LULU          Return

What does the fool say
When he comes home at night
To a heart without feeling
But a hunger for life
No words excahnged
What does that girl see when she closes her eyes
To the stranger who loves her
To the man
She doesn't know
Anything goes
Just one second of your sweet time
I only cry out again
Cry out
What can the boy do when he breaks down and crys?
Cos he cant see no point to this life that he leads
Wipe those tears from your eyes
And who is that soldier
Watching the film
He smiles without warning
And he lines up his kill
You know thats not right
And i only cry out when your not around
I only cry out again
My only way out
Is when your around
I only cry out again
Yeah
I only cry out when your not around
Just one second of your time
I only cry out
cry out
cry out
cry out
I only cry out again
Oh just one second of your sweet time
I only cry out again
