Vicki says that she's got a friend who likes to pretend. Says she's in a band, Complete Demand, will her life never end Vicki says, Vicki says, Vicki says! Now Vicki says she's found the perfect place. From neatness down to nature C'mon don't be a stranger! That's what Vicki says, That's what Vicki says, That's what Vicki says!

Me and my friends like Indie Music, we like waving our hands about. Me and my friends like Indie Music, we're afraid to go uptown. She stole my anorak and my flexi disc I wrote a fanzine about her, because I've never been kissed. Me and my friends like Indie Music, we like waving our hands about. Me and my friends like Indie Music, we're afraid to go uptown. 'Cause big boys are out to get us, they'll pull our trousers down. They'll take my Pastels badge, and tell me to get out of town. Me and my friends like Indie Music, we like waving our hands about. Me and my friends like Indie Music, we're afraid to go uptown.

Bean Feast Baby coming down the stairs She wants a midnight snack when there’s no one there. Well, I’ve got a hunch, baby that you skipped your lunch. Bean Feast Baby well that’s all right You want beans and toast in the middle of the night. I’ll be right back, after my midnight snack! Bean Feast Baby coming down the stairs She wants a midnight snack when there’s no one there. Bean feast baby I know what you did, you went downstairs and you raided the fridge! Celeriac with a beetroot jus, I would cook that up for you because I love you babe, In a culinary way! Steak cooked blue with a seafood foam I would leave that well alone because I love you babe, In a culinary way!

No names, no history between us Not even any goodbyes exchanged between us. No questions about where you live or where you're heading Let's shed no tears of regret. Your hair caressing my fingers Pierces deeply in my heart We shared our brief transient happiness Our night together will soon be gone You know I could loose you to another So I Committed a Crime You know I couldn't loose you to another So I Committed a Crime You know I couldn't loose you for another So I Committed the Crime

I'm feeling so much better, since I found my Doctor's letter. My pants can't get wetter, I hope it don't upset her! I'm havin' a real good time, Curing Covid by drinking wine. I'm havin' a real cool time! Well, I can't get an appointment now I'll make it there somehow. I forgot to walk away, I forgot the time of day. What time is it? What… I'm havin' a real good time, Curing Covid by drinking wine. I'm curing Covid by drinking wine. I'm havin' a real good time, Curing Covid by drinking wine. I'm watching Colditz and I'm drinking my wine!

You are Tabula Rasa, you're a clean slate. You say you want it now but you know you have to wait. We Are The Paint You are the Canvas. You want out! Time is runnin' in. Wanna talk about issues, but my patience is running thin. We Are The Paint You are the Canvas. We Are The Paint You are the Canvas. We Are The Paint You are the Canvas. We Are The Paint You are the Canvas.

I’m coming round tonight to see you, you've been on my mind the whole day through. I'm gonna buy you a red rose, I’ll tell you everything you want to know. ‘Cause you're the best thing that ever happened to me, you're the best thing that ever happened to me, you're the best thing that ever happened to me. I'm coming round tonight, to see you, You’ve been on my mind the whole day through. I’ll bring a bottle of wine and some flowers too, I’m spending all my money and it's all on you! ‘Cause you're the best thing that ever happened to me, you're the best thing that ever happened to me, you're the best thing that ever happened to me.

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Are you gonna hang around until the Ides of March? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Are you gonna hang around until the Ides of March? Scapegoat and sacrafice and settle up your debts. Are you gonna hang around until 44BC? Are you gonna be in debt until 2023? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Are you gonna hang around until the Ides of March? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Beware The Ides of March!

One Thursday night around 02:55 we were awoken by a very articulate drunk man walking up the street ranting at the top of his voice, so quickly grabbed the phone and recorded him!
