Playground
XTC
Lyrics
I climb up, spending daylight
Slide down bankrupt on the other side
Some sweet girl playing my wife
Runs off with a boy
whose bike she'll ride

Playground, it's a playground
Marked by the masters
And bruised by the bullies in the
Playground, every day ground
Never stop rehearsing
Rehearsing for the big square world

Bells will ring, door flies open
Hare and Greyhound
in the old kiss chase
You've been caught, game is ended
Smack on kisser from her slap on face

Playground, it's a playground
Marked by the masters
And bruised by the bullies in the
Playground, every day ground
Never stop rehearsing
Rehearsing for the big square world
Watch the leaves all tear away
One by one
Leaving you but lined like an exercise book
What did your report once say?
Know the one?
This boy must try harder to please
from down on his knees

Playground, playground
Careful what you say ground
Playground, playground
Gonna make you pay ground

Brain gets bent, heart gets broken
You can't jump off once the pages turn
School is out but never over
That's the only lesson you can learn

Playground, it's a playground
Marked by the masters
And bruised by the bullies in the
Playground, every day ground
Never stop rehearsing
Rehearsing for the big square...
Playground, it's a playground
You're for the high jump
If you let 'em push you in the
Playground, every day ground
There's no escaping,
Escaping from their big square world

You may leave school but it never leaves you

Stupidly Happy
XTC
Lyrics
I'm stupidly happy
Everything's fine
I'm stupidly happy
My heart pumping wine

I'm stupidly happy
With idiot grin
I'm stupidly happy
It's surely a sin

All the birds of the air call your name
As they land on my kitchen roof
All the fish in the lake do the same
Should you need extra proof

I'm stupidly happy
My vision is skewed
I'm stupidly happy
I'm coming unscrewed

[And if the Devil walks up
Dressed in any disguise
I'd take him by the collars
Look him in the eyes]

I'm stupidly happy
Now you're my defence
I'm stupidly happy
This world's making sense

I'm stupidly happy
I roll like a train
I'm stupidly happy
With you in my brain

All the lights of the cars in the town
Form the strings of a big guitar
I'm a giant to play you a tune
For wherever you are

I'm stupidly happy
Like the words to that song
I'm stupidly happy
No nothing's not wrong

[And should the Devil drive up
With his business card out
I'd tear it to confetti
With a grin and shout]

Stupidly happy
All of the time
I'm stupidly happy
Now you're mine

In Another Life
XTC
Lyrics
Well would you want me
In your afternoons
If I seduced you
In your mills and boon
Well I'll be the master
If you'll be the maid
But don't ya get those headaches
In another life
I'll bring you Milk Tray
From a parachute
I'll play the Hollywood hunk
You can dye your roots
Well I'll be your Burton
If you'll be my Liz
There might be flying pigs
In another life
It's how we're built love
Don't let it wilt love
I'll take ya flat feet
Well if you'll take my habits
It all works out in the end Ah! but in another life
I'll be the stranger
In your horoscope
The cheeky builder
Calling with his quote
Or maybe a chippendale
On girls night out
Make mine the biggest pouch
In another life
It's how we're built love
Don't let it wilt love
I'll take ya mood swings
Well if you'll take my hobbies
It all works out in the end
Ah! but in another life
Well I'll be your Burton
If you'll be my Liz
There might be flying pigs
In another life
And you'd give up the cigs
In another life
And beer taste's good in tins
Test matches we might win
And your mother buys her gin

Lyrics
In my heart, in my heart
You want some lovely
I got some lovely
In my head (in my head)
Where the lions
Wear the right tie,
Where the gems roar
There be lovely

You want some lovely

In my bed (in my bed)
Where the ocean
Wears the shore down
Where's the on switch?
There be lovely
(Laying, waiting naked for you)

We can play, every day
we can play at being lovers
We can play, every day
We can play on my brown guitar
We can play, every day
we can play at being lovers
We can play, every day
We can play on my brown guitar

You want some lovely
I got some lovely
In my yard (in my yard)
There be inchworm
There we football
Take my yardstick
Stir some lovely
(Laying, waiting naked for you) You want some lovely
I got some lovely
In my field
There be green grass
There be pink skies
There be blue birds
Come and nest there You want some
I got some
You want some
I got some
You want some
In my field
Lovely

We can play, every day
we can play at being lovers
We can play, every day
We can play on my brown guitar
We can play, every day
we can play at being lovers
We can play, every day
We can play on my brown guitar

You want some lovely
I got some lovely
In my heart, in my heart
For you

Boarded Up
XTC
Lyrics
Boarded up
Yeah, we're boarded up
Nailed up shut
Yeah, we're boarded up

Music venue has had its day
Death watch beetle band moved in to play
Groups don't come down from London way

Cos we're boarded up
Yeah, we're nailed up shut
Two-by-four-ded up
Yeah, we're boarded up

Touring companies stay away
Rats and mice take the centre stage
Carpenter's mate have a field day

Boarded up
Yeah, we're nailed up shut
[don't mind me at all]
Two-by-four-ded up
Yeah, we're boarded up

Pubs and clubs had the chop
Making way for a superstore plot
Some town planner didn't know when to stop

Boarded up
Come and see us
Boarded up
Don't wait too long, now cos we're
Boarding up
Yeah, boarded up...

Standing In For Joe
XTC
Lyrics
I'm standing...
Standing in for Joe
Joe called up to ask me
Would I do a favour
While he's gonna be out of town
Said his girl needs company
She gets so restless
Would I keep her safe and sound
Softly softly in the night
Well you can guess the rest
Now these shoes fit all too well
Standing in for Joe
I'm standing in for Joe
Joe said we've been friends so long
That I would be the one
He would trust with his life
Now those words run round my brain
As darkness falls
And I turn out his bedroom light
Who could resist her tender charms
So the story goes
This actor he plays all the parts
Standing in for Joe
I'm standing in for...
Love is like a river
You cannot stop its flow
I'm standing in for Joe

Wounded Horse
XTC
Lyrics
Well I stumbled
And I fell
Like a wounded horse
When I found out
Youd been riding
Another man

Well I staggered
Round in circles
On a losers course
When I found out
Youd been riding
Another man

Well my friends all said
Just climb back in the saddle
And you know that everything will turn out right
Well my friends all said
You wont sink if you paddle
But my ship drifts on into an endless night

Well I bit out
My own tongue
Like a wounded horse
When I found out
Youd been riding
Another man

Well my friends all said
Just climb back in the saddle
And you know that everything will turn out right
Well my friends all said
You wont sink if you paddle
But my ship drifts on into a endless night

Well I bit out
My own tongue
Like a wounded horse
When I found out
Youd been riding
Another man

When I found out
Youd been riding
Another man

Church Of Women
XTC
Lyrics
A lie for a lie, but a truth for the truth

Church of women is made out of milk
which their love turns to butter -er -er
Church of women will have you give praise
with a laugh, bark and stutter -er -er
Like us men like us men they are nothing like us men
Men have gargoyles 'round their hearts
I'm on my knees but dancing

Want to worship at the church of women
Breathe 'em in until my head goes spinning around
Want to worship at the church
Let me worship at the church of women

Church of women is making donations of loving and giving -ing -ing
Church of women performing that miracle raising the living -ing -ing
Like us men like us men will they ever like us men?
Men have thorns around their minds
I'm on my mountain preaching

Want to worship at the church of women
Breathe 'em in until my head goes spinning around
Want to worship at the church
Let me worship at the church of women

Lie for a lie, but a truth for the truth
Give 'em back their house: the walls, the doors, the floors and roof
And stop tryin' to diet on the wafers and wine and submit we're in control
Now let's put things right
Let's multiply the loves and kisses
'Til we have enough to love and eat forever

Want to worship at the church of women
I want to worship at the church of women now
Breathe 'em in until my head goes spinning around
I'll breathe 'em in until my head goes spinning 'round
Want to worship at the church
Let me worship at the church of women
Want to worship at the church of women
(Repeat X3 and fade)
