“Parklife” (blur)

Confidence is a preference for the habitual voyeur
Of what is known as
(Parklife)
And morning soup can be avoided
If you take a route straight through what is known as
(Parklife)

John’s got brewers droop he gets intimidated
By the dirty pigeons, they love a bit of him
(Parklife)
Who’s that gut lord marching?
You should cut down on your porklife mate, get some exercise

All the people
So many people
They all go hand in hand
Hand in hand through their parklife
Know what I mean?

I get up when I want except on Wednesdays
When I get rudely awakened by the dustmen
(Parklife)
I put my trousers on, have a cup of tea
And I think about leaving the house
(Parklife)

I feed the pigeons I sometimes feed the sparrows too
It gives me a sense of enormous well-being
(Parklife)
And then I’m happy for the rest of the day safe in the knowledge
There will always be a bit of my heart devoted to it

All the people
So many people
And they all go hand in hand
Hand in hand through their parklife

Parklife
(Parklife)
Parklife
(Parklife)

It’s got nothing to do with
Vorsprung durch Technik you know
(Parklife)
And it’s not about you joggers
Who go round and round and round
(Parklife)

All the people
So many people
And they all go hand in hand
Hand in hand through their parklife

All the people
So many people
And they all go hand in hand
Hand in hand through their parklife

“Song 2” (blur)

I got my head checked
By a jumbo jet
It wasn’t easy
But nothing is, no
Woo Hoo

When I feel heavy metal
Woo Hoo!
And I’m pins and I’m needles
Woo Hoo!
Well I lie and I’m easy

All of the time
But I’m never sure
Why I need you
Pleased to meet you

I got my head done
When I was young
It’s not my problem
It’s not my problem
Woo Hoo!

When I feel heavy metal
Woo Hoo!
And I’m pins and I’m needles
Woo Hoo!
Well I lie and I’m easy

All of the time
But I’m never sure
Why I need you
Pleased to meet you

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Oh yeah…

“Clint Eastwood” (Gorillaz)

Oh oh oh oh oh

I ain’t happy, I’m feeling glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I’m useless but not for long
The future is coming on

I ain’t happy, I’m feeling glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I’m useless but not for long
The future is coming on
It’s coming on, it’s coming on
(Rah, yeah)
It’s coming on, it’s coming on

Finally someone let me out of my cage
Now time for me is nothin’ ‘cos I’m counting no age
Now I couldn’t be there now you shouldn’t be scared
I’m good at repairs and I’m under each snare
Intangible (ah y’all) I bet you didn’t think so
I command you to, panoramic view (you)
Look I’ll make it all manageable
Pick and choose, sit and lose
All you different crews
Chicks and dudes, who you think is really kicking tunes

Picture you getting down and I’ll picture too
Like you lit the fuse
You think it’s fictional, mystical – maybe
Spiritual hero who appears on you to clear your view (yeah)
When you’re too crazy
Lifeless for whose definition is for what life is
Priceless to you because I put ya on the hype shift
Did ya like it?
Gut smokin’ righteous but one talkin’ psychic
But among knows possess you with one though

I ain’t happy, I’m feeling glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I’m useless but not for long
The future is coming on

I ain’t happy, I’m feeling glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I’m useless but not for long
(That’s right)
The future is coming on
It’s coming on, it’s coming on, it’s coming on, it’s coming on

The essence, the basics without it you make it
Allow me to make this childlike in nature
Rhythm you have it or you don’t
That’s a fallacy, I’m in them
Every sprouting tree, every child of peace
Every cloud I see you see with your eyes
You see destruction and demise
(That’s right)
Corruption in the skies
From this fucking enterprise that I’m sucked into your lies
The Russell that is muscles
The percussion he provides

For me I say God, y’all can see me now
‘Cos you don’t see with your eye
You perceive with your mind
That’s the end of it
So I’m gonna stick around with Russ and be a mentor
Bust a few rounds of motherfuckers
Remember but the thought is
I brought all this so you can survive when law is lawless (right here)
Fearless, sensations that you thought was dead
No squealing, remember that it’s all in your head

I ain’t happy, I’m feeling glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I’m useless but not for long
The future is coming on

I ain’t happy, I’m feeling glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I’m useless but not for long
The future is coming on
It’s coming on, it’s coming on, it’s coming on, it’s coming on

My future (future)
It’s coming on, it’s coming on, it’s coming on
My future
It’s coming on, it’s coming on, it’s coming on
My future.

“Beetlebum” (blur)

Beetlebum, what you’ve done, she’s a gun
Now what you’ve done, beetlebum
Get nothing done, you beetlebum
Just get numb, now what you’ve done, beetlebum

And when she lets me slip away
She turns me on and all my violence is gone
Nothing is wrong, I just slip away and I am gone
Nothing is wrong, she turns me on
I just slip away and I am gone

Beetlebum because you’re young, she’s a gun
Now what you’ve done, beetlebum
She’ll suck your thumb, she’ll make you come
‘Cause, she’s your gun, now what you’ve done, beetlebum

And when she lets me slip away
She turns me on and all my violence is gone
Nothing is wrong, I just slip away and I am gone
There’s nothing is wrong, she turns me on
I just slip away and I am gone…
