Track Name: London Revellers
VERSE 1
Us, you, me and them
Desparately seeking to belong

Dancing and Prancing
Jeans so tight
Don't wanna stand and fight right....Fight right

As I walked up the stairs
Clammering to the sound of the ravers
The ravers of Love
I wondered if I truely belonged to this sea of youth?


CHORUS
La di da di da
We are the London Revellers
La di da di da
We are the London Revellers


VERSE 2
Boys and girls
kicking and punching their way out of the door

Leaving only a sticky stench
of regret and perfume sex

A ciggie tucked behind his ear
And herself leaning against his chest.

I wondered when this night would end?
This wondrous haze of confuse.


CHORUS
La di da di da
We are the London Revellers
La di da di da
We are the London Revellers


VERSE 3
Everbody on Brick Lane
Looking ultra super sexy cool yah
Das ist kool ja

Some looking New Wave
More like Timmy Mallet
Yeah whatever!

Everybody drunk and drinking
smoking feeling happy and high

Empty vessels tits and ass!
New Romantics ready to dance


CHORUS
La di da di da
We are the London Revellers
La di da di da
We are the London Revellers
Track Name: Prince Charles (Cinema)
PRINCE CHARLES LYRICS
RENU

VERSE 1

OH IT'S ONE OF THOSE LOVELY DAYS
AND YOU'VE JUST FINISHED WORK
AND ALL BECAUSE IT
PAYS

YOU HOP ON THE BUS
IT'S HALF EMPTY SO THERE'S NO BIG FUSS
YOU LOOK FOR THE SEAT
AT THE TOP AT THE FRONT

SO YOU CAN WATCH THE OLD LADIES
AND THEIR DOGS GO BY

CHORUS

OH IT'S ONE OF THOSE LOVELY DAYS
WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO
SO YOU HEAD FOR THE PRINCE CHARLES
AND CATCH A MOVIE WITH
MAYBE ONE DAY FILM STARS
AND LOSERS TOO
OH MY LITTLE PRINCE CHARLES

VERSE 2

OH IT'S ONE OF THOSE LOVELY DAYS
PASS THE NOODLE BARS, CHINESE GEEZERS, COCKNEY ACCENTS
YOU LOOK UP AT THE OLD SWISS CLOCK
AND YOU WONDER WHERE THE TIME WENT BY
AND THEN YOU WISH
ONE OF YOUR LOVERS WERE BACK

MIDDLE EIGHT

VERSE 3

IN THE RAIN WITH A BUNCH OF FLOWERS
I WAIT FOR A GLANCE
WEARING MY BURBERRY MAC
I PEEK TO THE CORNER
AND CATCH TWO LOVERS
CHIT AND CHAT, ABOUT THIS AND THAT
WHY HAS LOVE ELUDED ME?

CHORUS

OH IT'S ONE OF THOSE LOVELY DAYS
WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO
SO YOU HEAD FOR THE PRINCE CHARLES
AND CATCH A MOVIE WITH
MAYBE ONE DAY FILMSTARS
AND LOSERS TOO

OH YES MY LITTLE PRINCE CHARLES

BLACK SHAPED LOVE
RENU

Verse 1
Junk love………….
I know the time and place
Where the deed was done
I know without knowing
Where you're love has gone

Verse 2
I know what's going on
I'm not the only one
I know without knowing
You're gutted cos you're sprung

I can see it in the distance
You're far from where you're from

Chorus
Junk love
Black shaped love

Verse 3 (Excerpts of 1 & 2)
I know the time and place
Where the deed was done
Where you're love has gone

Track Name: Ballad of Barnaby & Kim
BARNABY & KIM
BY RENU

verse 1
He was a boy
At the end of the road
Who made art
And little clay pigeons

Verse 2
He kissed me one night
And it felt like a girl
I looked into his eyes
And I wished he was

Bridge 1
He spoke about love
All things sad
His girlfriend an English flower
Was completely mad

Chorus 1
His trip to the northern lights
Seemed like a dream to me
A magical voyage
With a friend with a broken nose

Chorus 2
He painted snow....
Layed down white carpets
And drew his curtains
In his room

Verse 3
A virginal boudoir
Full of art and music
He played me his song
Into the night

Verse 4
I felt sad
Our dreams so full of romance
Would it be like dancing
Our last dance?

Chorus 3
Like Barnaby
Kim had kissed me
Unlike he
She kissed like a he

Chrous 4
She was a star
In Vienna
She had to leave the madness
Of her mother

Chorus 5
Instrumental

Bridge 2
She knew if she
Drank the pain away
Her only conversation
was with herself

Chorus 6
Smoking all day
Draped at the window
When would she be star again
Never it seemed
Never it would be

Verse 5
This is my story
Of Barnaby and Kim
I hope I wouldn't find either
Down and out

Bridge 3
He would be alright
She would sing her song
When would our paths cross
Only at night

INSTRUMENTAL OUTRO ..verse 1&2&3&4
Track Name: London to Alabama
LONDON TO ALABAMA
RENU

Verse 1
Slowly things become better
When life trickles past
Eaten by your love hate letter
You were not supposed to last

Chorus
Memories keep flooding forward
Tears I cannot hold
I know *5
I must be bold

Verse 2
She took the last train to Alabama
The 9-5 she would try
The things that push and pull, pull and tug ya
London has drained her dry

Chorus
Memories keep flooding forward
Tears I cannot hold
I know *5
I must be bold

Bridge
A daughter she must feed
A journey she must take
A story she must read
I hope it has a happy ending


Bridge in French
Un fille que doit nurrie
Un histoire que'll doit libre
Un voyage que'll doit faire
Je spare te tout irra-bien


Verse 3
She met a man in the local diner
He introduced himself as 'Honest Joe'
He took her hand
And placed a ring on her finger
And he asked her if she would be his beau?

Chorus
Memories keep flooding forward
Tears I can not hold
I know *5

Djembe Train solo

Verse 4
The neighbors said they hadn't seen her
Maybe for a week or so
A lot of bruising, screaming, punching, fighting
They blamed it all on Honest Joe

Chorus
Memories keep flooding forward
Tears can not hold
I know *5

She was DEAD

Verse 1
Putting you down makes me feel better
Knowing you I feel weird
Even when the blood is over
The sadness still remains

Verse 2
Mother in the room can't understand her
Unlike her I am low
Unlike her I'm useless
Unlike her I will drown

Chorus
La da da da da da da *4

Verse 1
Putting you down makes me feel better
Knowing you I feel weird
Even when the blood is over
The sadness still remains

Verse 2
Mother in her room can't understand her
Unlike her I am low
Unlike her I'm useless
Unlike her I will drown
and 2 and Chorus repeat

Bridge
This aching sickness inside of me
Like the ocean will never leave
I stare at the phone at the phone waiting for a ring
Even if we talk what would that achieve?

I am LEFT * 7

Chorus
La da da da da da da

WE LOVE YOU (VAMPIRES OF LONDON)
RENU

Verse 1
we dance to the moon
The film star is you
We laugh till we cry
And that's when I knew
Unlike the damned and the down
Our love would never die
He whispered in my ear
We'd never grow old


Verse 2
We prayed for the storms
And partied all night
We jested and joked
Of whose necks we would bite
Unlike the damned and the down
Our love would never die
Where did they all go?
No one knows

Chorus
We Love you
We love you
We love you

Verse 3
Rain began to fall
The excitement grew and grew
We pounded our arms against the big bloody sky
Unlike the damned and down
Our love would never die
Virgins and beauties
Please do come to our ball.

Chorus
We Love you
We love you
We love you

Intro
We the Vampires of London
Will suck your life, love and blood

Chorus
La............

Dialogue
As we proceeded up the stairs
to our coffins
We the undead were in safe knowledge
We would live forever!!

RENU


Oh little lady sitting there
with her dark
but golden hair
Eating scones and muffins
Lashings of butter and chocolate buttons


All grown up but still a child
Feel like keeping her by my side
Stroke her head
And kiss her cheek
Tuck her in her cosy bed


Keeping all the wolves abay
And the demons from knocking on her door
When would she learn?
I'm only here to LOVE + PLAY


Now that all the sentiments are over
I can perform my little games
Like sticking worms in her ears
And scaring her from behind big doors


Eating cheese and drinking wine
And time to time I would call her a filthy swine
Only in jest
As she knows me best - OH!


What a weird and + scary thing we're in

My weird and wary twin
