Selected Lyrics

The following songs are from 'Totally Groovy Live Experience' album.

Girl At the Bus Stop ,D.Treacy

	
	I see her everyday, I don't think she ever sees me
	If I could only meet her, How happy I would be
	But she always takes the no.9, I'm so sad you see
	She always takes the no.9, but mines the no.143
	And oh, if she would only say hello
	I'm really very tempted, to follow her to see where see goes,

	Oh, She's my girl at the bus stop, and I only hope one day 
  	that she will go my way
  	Yes, She's my girl at the bus stop, and I only hope one day 
  	she will go my way

  	Oh, She's very beautiful, most beautiful girl I've ever seen
  	She's even more love-er-ly than * all the girls in my dreams *see note
  	Cause she's the real thing, I wanna reach out and touch her hair
  	Sometimes I have to pinch myself, to believe she's really there

  	And oh, if she would only look my way
  	And oh, if she would only go my way, someday

  	She's my girl at the bus stop, shes never late 
  	she's always there at eight
  	Yeah, she's my girl at the bus stop, and she's never late
	she's always there at eight

	And oh, I wish she wouldn't take the no.9
  	And oh, I only wish she'll take the same bus mine, sometime

  	Oh, She's my girl at the bus stop, and I only hope one day 
  	that she will go my way
  	Yes, She's my girl at the bus stop, and I only hope one day 
  	she will go my way

NOTE: On the version on Gorden Keen And his BMX Bandits this 
line goes:-
	She's even more love-er-ly than Her Royal Magesty the Queen.
And also at the end of the song the line:-
  	Please, Please take the same bus as me
is repeated until fade.

Hot Bandito No.1 (D.Stewart, N.Blake, G.Love)

	Wanna be a better singer
	But I can't, No I can't
  	Wanna write better songs
  	But I can, No I can

  	Most of all, I want things to be better, for you and me
  	And they can, Yea they can

  	I wanna travel in outer space
  	But I can, No I can
  	Wanna save the whole human race
  	But I can, No I can

  	Most of all, I want things to be better, for you and me
  	And they cann, Yea they can

  	And I wanna be a thing to you
  	like your everthing to me
  	And I want for you to see in yourself
  	What I see, What I see

  	I wanna travel in outer space
  	But I can, No I can
  	Wanna save the whole human race
  	But I can, Could any man?

  	Most of all I want things to be perfect for you and me
  	and they can, yea they can

Help Me. Somebody
  	Help me somebody, is anybody there
  	Help me somebody, doesn't anybody care

  	I could've been someone, but I was much too scared
  	Help me somebody, doesn't anybody care

  	Help me somebody, big bother the door is closed
  	Help me somebody, I need love the most

  	I've lost my way and my dreams have turned into ghosts
  	Help me somebody, I need love the most

  	Help me now somebody, where do the lonely go
  	Help me somebody, help me please, before its time to go

  	Help me somebody, I need a helping hand
  	Oh help me somebody, don't you understand

  	(musical interlude)

  	Help me now somebody, where do the lonely go

Funny Face

	Funny face, no need to speak,
	I wish your mouth belonged to me,
	I'd place a finger on your lips,
	We exchange smiles, but no kiss,
	
	Funny face, I like you style,
	Turned up nose and sunshine smile,
	Don't change the colour of your door,
	I want to get to know you more,
	
	And I could watch you dancin' all night,
	And make you happy let me try,
	Oh, funny face we share my gum,
	I taste you saliva on my tongue,
	
	A poor substitue for a kiss,
	Today, I'd have to settle for this,
	
	Oh funny face, I love your hair,
	If I come knocking at your door,
	Let me in, I love to stay,
	Don't shut me out or turn me away,
	
	And I could watch you dancin' all night,
	And make you happy let me try,
	And I could watch you dancin' all night,
	And make you happy let me try,
	
	Funny face, (funny face),
	funny face, funny face.

Islands In The Stream Released on yellow flexidisc quite some time ago, along with a song from the Duglasettes. Sung as a duet with Caroline. First performed by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rodgers.

	Baby, when I met you, there was peace unknown,
	I said I could get  you with the band to come,
	I sat inside,
	There was something going on,
	
	You do something to me that I can't explain,
	Hold me closer and I'd feel no pain,
	Every beat of my heart,
	We've got somthing going on,
	
	Take it off his mind, it requires a dedication,
	All this love, it needs no conversation,
	
	We ride together(ahhhaaa),
	Making love with one another(ahhhaaa),
	Islands in the stream, that is what we are,
	No one inbetween, how could we be wrong,
	Sail away with me, to another world,
	And we'll rely on each other(ahhhaaaa),
	From one love to another(ahhhaaaa),
	
	I can't live without you if the love was gone,
	Everything is nothing if you've got no one,
	And I want to denylosing site of the real thing,
	
	But that won't happen to us, we've got no doubt,
	Too deep in love, there's no way out,
	
	And the message is clear,
	This time it could be the real thing,
	
	You know where you go,
	Baby, I will let that,
	
	Ahhhhhaaaa
	
	Stormy weather is when I'm in love forever,
	
	We ride it together ahaaaa,
	Making love to one another ahhhhaaaa,
	
	Islands in the stream, that is what we are,
	No one inbetween, how could we be wrong,
	Sail away with me, to another world,
	And we'll rely on each other(ahhhaaaa),
	From one love to another(ahhhaaaa),
	
	Islands in the stream, that is what we are,
	No one inbetween, how could we be wrong,
	Sail away with me, to another world,
	And we'll rely on each other(ahhhaaaa),
	From one love to another(ahhhaaaa),

Satellite Girl An excellent song from Speedboat, such that it deserves the lyrics to be included here. In fact Speedboat are brilliant and in some ways better than the Bandits, but only a bit mind you. Other songs are from the second 7" avaliable from Shoeshine. Can't wait for the album to be released.

	Satellite girl, now you go curls
	Your hair falls short off your back,
	You've got style and you got fire,
	And you look real good in black,
	And if you give it some attention,
	You know you'll always get it all back,
	
	Satellite girl, my wings uncurl,
	The first time I met you,
	Can't believe my own luck,
	And I'll never say we're through,
	Gonna give you some attention,
	
	Cause with you, I'll always get it all back,
	You make me feel like running,
	When I hold your hand,
	Shouting out your name,
	I wanna sing all about you
	When I'm with the band,
	Something to proclaim,
	
	Satellite girl, now I get surly,
	Sometimes, when I'm with you,
	I get lost in my own world,
	But i know just what I'll do,
	I'm gonna give you some attention,
	
	Cause with you, I'll always get it all back,
	You make me feel like running,
	When I hold your hand,
	Shouting out your name,
	I wanna sing all about you
	When I'm with the band,
	Something to proclaim,
	
	You make me feel like running,
	When I hold your hand,
	Shouting out your name,
	I wanna sing all about you
	When I'm with the band,
	Something to proclaim,
	You know I had a lot of feelings,
	But they didn't last,
	This one stays the same,
	You know I'm never gonna think about
	What's in the past,
	Things that can't be changed.

A-T-O-M-I-C

	Don't live in the past,
	Don't worry about the future,
	If it's gonna last,
	Cause we've got time for a knee-jerk reaction,
	Throughtout your life relax for just a fraction,
	Personality trails are gonna get a reaction,

	You're an atom bomb...a-t-o-m-i-c,
	You're a time bomb counting t minus, to a nuclear reaction,
	You're an atom bomb...a-t-o-m-i-c,
	You're a time bomb counting t minus a nuclear reaction,

	If it's getting you down,
	Ain't you looking at the matter,
	And I'm gonna stay for a while,
	But we ain't got time for personality crisis,
	Got to learn how to live with the vices,
	For a woman in love, yo upack some surprises,

	You're an atom bomb...a-t-o-m-i-c,
	You're a time bomb counting t minus, to a nuclear reaction,
	You're an atom bomb...a-t-o-m-i-c,
	You're a time bomb counting t minus a nuclear reaction,

	Have you heard about E-C-T,
	Could blow your mind, could make you really free,
	You don't do drugs,
	You do anti-biotics,
	Got to try some anti-psychotics,

	You're an atom bomb...a-t-o-m-i-c,
	You're a time bomb counting t minus, to a nuclear reaction,
	You're an atom bomb...a-t-o-m-i-c,
	You're a time bomb counting t minus a nuclear reaction.
Luv
	I'm in love, it feels so good,
	And for the first time I feel like I should,
	Don't need drugs to get me high,
	Cause now I feel warm with you open sky,

	It makes you feel free, for a while,
	Don't try and stop me, I haven't felt this way for quite some time,

	I don't need, to hear no wrong,
	You can't critisise me for having fun,
	My friends said 'it's like the morning sun',
	And I think I know where it's coming from,

	It makes you happy, it makes you smile,
	Don't try and stop me, I haven't felt this way for wuite some time,

	So come on, don't be a bore,
	It's your favourite song, so get on that floor,
	We can dance till the break of day,
	Not gonna stop till I hear you say...

 	It makes you happy, it makes you smile,
	Don't try and stop me, I haven't felt this way for wuite some time,
