Track Name: Some Girls
Some girls are a bit too clever
Sometimes they can get whatever
I’d try to find my way back home if I could

Some boys are a bit too simple
That's why they're always single
I'd try to find my way back home if I could

When my finger’s on the button
But you get no consolation
It’s like chasing tails
Round and round and round and round
When she’s lonely and I’m wasted
Desperation, I can taste it
It’s a cartoon show
Round and round and round and round

Tears fall freely when bad girls cry
It’s far too easy
But I still hear them lie
And those tears fall freely when bad girls cry
It’s too late.
Too late. Too late. Too late. Too late.

Some girls are a bit too sexy
Some nights get a bit too messy
I’d try to find my way back home if I could

But some girls always need attention
And say things that they shouldn’t mention
I’d try to find my way back home if I could

When my finger’s on the button
But you get no consolation
It’s like chasing tails
Round and round and round and round
When she’s lonely and I’m wasted
Desperation, I can taste it
It’s a cartoon show
Round and round and round and round

Tears fall freely when bad girls cry
It’s far too easy
But I still hear them lie
And those tears fall freely when bad girls cry
It’s too late.
Too late. Too late. Too late. Too late.

(Solo)

Some girls are a bit too clever
Sometimes they can get whatever
I’d try to find my way back home if I could
Track Name: Absolute Beginners
They’re absolute beginners but
there’s not much they wouldn’t do

When you’re 15 and you’re
lonely so you sleep ‘til the afternoon
And there’s two more weeks of August,
there’s a world that they haven’t seen

And now drunken kisses’ nervousness is
what everybody needs

They want love love love
with the minimum fuss
And summer’s almost over

It’s all lust lust lust
at the back of the bus
And they're trying to take things further

They want love love love
with the minimum fuss
And summer's almost over

It's all lust lust lust and the capital
must be getting that much closer

They’re absolute outsiders
but in this town you know their name

And you still can’t trust your neighbours
there are some things that never change

And there’s two more weeks of freedom
they can be anyone they choose

But you’d be amazed how far you’d stray
They don’t have a lot to lose

She wants to be free
He’s hard to please
And so suddenly
It’s time to leave
But you know she’ll have someone by
the end of the week


They want love love love
with the minimum fuss
And summer’s almost over

It’s all lust lust lust
at the back of the bus
And they're trying to take things further

They want love love love
with the minimum fuss
And summer's almost over

It's all lust lust lust and the capital
must be getting that much closer

Getting that much closer to you
Love love love
Track Name: Mr & Mrs
One or two mistakes
That is all it takes
For the back to break, my darling

It was the final straw
She couldn’t take no more
And he was getting bored
She’s charming

But she was always over-thinking
And he was far too busy drinking
And neither of them lived

Mr & Mrs
It was such a funny business
They drove to Dover hill and then
The witness said they missed her by inches
And now they are no more, my darling...

How can one or two mistakes
Be really all it takes
For the back to break, alarming

Together 20 years
And then they disappeared
Without a single word of warning

But she was always over-thinking
And he was far too busy drinking
And neither of them lived

Mr & Mrs
It was such a funny business
They drove to Dover hill and then
The witness said they missed her by inches
And now they are no more, my darling...

The whispers and the conversation
The rumours flew around the police station
It was a scandalous situation
In the best possible
way, my darling.
