Track Name: Kickstart
Winter in Vienna
Empty rides on the fair
Dirt in the snow
Roadside trees are bare.
Only last Summer
Me and Eileen were there
We were stop-and-kiss walking
That was our own affair

Warm is a memory
Where love never dies
Inside a picture
Behind my eyes
Kick – kick

Big wheel turn slow
Me and the snow in the air
And I know down below
Lovers and leaves are there
Summer is morning
And winter is night
And a soft soft focus
Became a cold black/white

Warm is a memory
Where love never dies
Inside a picture
Closing my eyes
Kick – kick - kick – kick

Kickstarting my heart
(kickstart my heart)
Kickstarting my heart
(kickstart my heart)
Kickstarting my heart
(kickstart my heart)
Kickstarting my heart
(kickstart my heart)

Bright are the colours
Sweet is the light
Deep are the feelings
Deep in the night
Warm is a memory
Where love never dies
Inside a picture
Behind my eyes
Closing, closing my eyes
Kick – kick – kick - kick

Kickstarting my heart
(kickstart my heart)
Kickstarting my heart
(kickstart my heart)
Kickstarting my heart
(kickstart my heart)
Kickstarting my heart
(kickstart my heart)

All of my dreams were there…
Track Name: Cincinnati Jump
DOO DOO WAP WA, DO THE CINCINNATTI JUMP.
JUMPING CINCINNATTI, JUMPING CINCINNATTI.

There's beer in the fridge and pizza in the freezer.
DOO DOO WAP WA, DO THE CINCINNATTI JUMP.
There's a petrol pump attendant she's a big flirt teaser.
TAKE YOUR PARTNER FOR THE CINCINNATTI JUMP.
I got a six pack back on my rope slack tug boat.
DOO DOO WAP WA, DO THE CINCINNATTI JUMP.
For a petrol pump attendant with a love bite on her soft throat.
A PRIME CONTESTANT FOR THE CINCINNATTI JUMP.

Good grief. I know. Combat in the erogenous zone.
Just me and you. Whatever you wanna do...
Get set to jump. Get ready to jump.

Stand back to back and light the blue touch paper.
ALL THE SMART MONEY'S ON THE CINCINNATTI JUMP.
Don't be a ghoul, a police time waster.
SAD MAD MICHAEL, TAKE THE CINCINNATTI JUMP.
Don't be a butterfly man, or an ambulance chaser.
DOO DOO WAP WA, DO THE CINCINNATTI JUMP.

Good grief. I know. Combat in the erogenous zone.
Just you and me and curiosity.
Get set to jump. Get ready to jump. Catch you if you fall.

All the funny money, turning round the world.
Never find the pocket of a brown eyed girl. Jump.
Catch you if you fall.
All the funny money, turning round the world.
Never find the pocket of a brown eyed girl. Jump.

Synchronise watches to Central European Time.
C.E.T. TAKE THE CINCINNATTI JUMP.
Missionary position or injured party time?
1,2,3, TAKE THE CINCINNATTI JUMP.

Good grief. I know. Combat in the erogenous zone.
Just me and you. I'll be whatever you wanna do.
Get set to jump. Get set to jump.

C.E.T. TAKE THE CINCINNATTI JUMP.
1,2,3, TAKE THE CINCINNATTI JUMP.
SAD MAD MICHAEL, TAKE THE CINCINNATTI JUMP.
Track Name: More
We want more
We don’t want more of the same
Oh no, there must be more
We could be flying a plane solo

We could be lighting a flame
Wanna thrill you
Could be breaking away from home
Another day of this game’s gonna kill you
Don’t go dancing alone

There must be more
Than two lonely feet upon a dance floor
More - less is a mess, the same is a bore
Tomorrow there has to be more
Tomorrow we want more

We don’t want more of the same
Oh no, there must be more
We could be flying a plane solo

We could be lighting a flame
Wanna thrill you
We could be breaking away from home
Gonna drive you insane, it’s gonna kill you
If you go dancing alone

There must be more
Than two lonely feet upon a dance floor
More - less is a mess, the same is a bore
Tomorrow there has to be more
It’s more of the same, or more

I’m gonna get me a hot-rod gleaming
And dodge the traffic street so slow
Tail lights a-flashing up ahead and in-between
Just watch us go - for more
More
For more
For more
More
Track Name: Guilty As Hell
How long have I cheated
Even though I cared
Knowing with each misdemeanour
You were unaware?

How long have I fooled you
Took you for a ride
Covered over clues and traces
Of my other side

Too long baby, too long
When I see you smile
All my lies come home to haunt me
Lying by your side

I wake up in heaven
But I’m guilty as hell
Wake up in heaven
But I’m guilty as hell

How long have I cheated?
Two can play this game
Something you would never do
I never will again

Too long baby, too long
But how long does it take?
I look at you and see right through
The innocence I fake

I wake up in heaven
But I’m guilty as hell
Wake up in heaven
But I’m guilty as hell

I could wake up next to no one
Other stupid fools beware
One loose word half-overheard
And you’re not there
Girl I swear

I’m in heaven
But I’m guilty as hell
In heaven
But I’m guilty as hell
Track Name: Don't Mean We're Lovers
I never thought I’d be in deeper
Deeper than I wanted to go
Nobody warned me, nobody prepared me
And nobody told me stories, told me stories

I thought it was fictional knowledge
Some scary nursery rhyme
Didn’t see it in the midnight movies
When I was passing time, just passing time
But now it’s got me so scared, scared
Scared, I’m scared
Because

We’re friends but it don’t mean we’re lovers
We’re lovers but it don’t mean we’re tied
We’re tied, but it don’t mean we’re family
We’re family till freedom comes by

So who has the explanation?
We both own the alibi
We could talk about all of the changes
We could make a life
We could hold tight
Please hold me tight
I’m so scared, scared
Scared, I’m scared
Because

We’re friends but it don’t mean we’re lovers
We’re lovers but it don’t mean we’re tied
We’re tied, but it don’t mean we’re family
We’re family till freedom comes by

We’re friends but it don’t mean we’re lovers
We’re lovers but it don’t mean we’re tied
We’re tied, but it don’t mean we’re family
We’re family till freedom comes by
Track Name: Reunion Ball
Jimmy got married to Judy or Jean
Harry got carried away by the scheme
Sailed round the world in a home-made canoe
Last thing I heard he was still living in Crewe
Tony’s still lonely, Billy’s inside
Rosemary told me with tears in her eyes

But what happened to you?
I lost your number
Do you really pass through?
Why don’t you give me a call?
Did you move to Peru?
Are you living down-under?
Every year I get to wonder
At this Reunion Ball

Johnny still talks about the Socialist Dream
But still never notices what’s happening to Jean
Stevie appeared on a TV Game Show
He won one year’s free beer
And a car that won’t go
Katy’s still waiting for a millionaire
Cathy came and asked me if I knew how you were

So we talked about you
Did you marry a sailor?
Did you find your way through?
Did you stumble and fall?
Are your eyes still so blue?
Are you in Venezuela?
It’s a bit of a failure
This Reunion Ball

Vic he got sick, had to sell off his store
Bernie isn’t turning any tricks anymore
Bobby left the band, said he just got to old
For sleeping in bands and that sweet rock ‘n roll
Sold that old piano after you went away
But every year we gather here they get me to play

And I sing it all for you
For the days we were flying
Went some place called Peru
It’s just a map on the wall
If someone tells you
I ended up crying
That was just my bad timing
And this Reunion Ball
That was just my bad timing
And this Reunion Ball
Track Name: Ugly Diamonds
Look at us baby, always on guard
Grown too quickly, grown up too hard
Can’t hide in our own back yard
What ugly diamonds we are

The gift of wonder, when we arrive
We squander just to survive
Ruined beauty, but at least we’re alive
What ugly diamonds we are
What ugly diamonds we are

Under a bridge where the stray dogs howl
Curb crawlers, police on the prowl
Innocence with a tender scowl
What ugly diamonds we are
What ugly diamonds we are
What ugly diamonds we are

(Solo)

We are indestructible
Climbing, racing to the heavens
A handful of gold dust in the ghetto
We are my friends, We are my friends
Whoah oh oh ay ay, Whoah oh oh ay ay

Bright diamonds instead of stone
Empty cage now the birds have flown
Try and find us, address unknown

What ugly diamonds we are
What ugly diamonds we are
What ugly diamonds we are
What ugly diamonds we are

What ugly diamonds we are
Track Name: Brits On The Piss
Hire a MedPed in Magaluf
Swaggerluf yeah
Costa Bravo do you read me
Speak da lingo, playa da bingo?

Trash a Jetski in Magaluf
Shagaluf, yeah!
Brits abroad gotta get laid
Slappers on tour with the Newton Ale Brigade

Psycho Sergeants in Magaluf
Staggerluf yeah
Rule Britannia on the table
Man United live on cable

Bulldog tattoos in Magaluf
Slagaluf yeah!
Brits abroad, every one trade
Slappers on't floor with the Newton Ale Brigade

Roy Chubby Brown on pool bar video
At Gigolo's
Calling all you temps and brickies
White Dove E at Sticky Vicky's

Scruffy Murphy's, The Alamo
Way to go!
Roxanne's, Shamrock's, Thistle and Rose
Pierced through the nipple and the belly and the nose

They sink so much drink
They're like cellos
Not brown like Othellos
More prawn pink and yellows
Our own lingua franca we banish
For if we speak Spanish
These English pigs vanish

Brits on the piss
One merry go round
One little black number
One bellypot brown
Wherever we come
Wherever we roam
Brits on the piss
Who's taking me home?
Brits on the piss
One night on the town
Dog/bitches in heat
Try putting us down!
