I went walking With the apple of my eye (Walking with one, walking with one) Over the hills And time went so swiftly by (Walking with one, walking with one) I went walking Out with one now so far from me (Walking with one, walking with one) As far as the golden sun As far as the inland sea (Walking with one, walking with one) (Walking with one, walking with one) But now the door is closed And I expect her not Loving times wearied of Are lovelier forgot Now I go walking With no one beside me (Walking with one, walking with one) As if she never was Such good company (Walking with one, walking with one) I went walking With the apple of my eye (Walking with one, walking with one)

Nice people stop and stare At the ladies passing there The gentlemen like Fred Astaire At the Black Cat, Cairo All the ladies look so chic Grace of feline, soft and sleek And the patron's so discreet At the Black Cat, Cairo Well, camel 'round the pyramids Boat ride down the Nile Night back at the Black Cat Putting on the style It's the only place to be If you're busy buzzing like a bee Many honeyed memories At the Black Cat back in Cairo Every night on with the show The band knows which way to go Everybody's easy to know At the Black Cat, Cairo Officers drink to the health Of gentlemen of greatest wealth Fallen comrades and everyone else At the Black Cat, Cairo Oh, jibber jabber markets Hurley burley aisles Back down to the Black Cat Another night on the tiles He's like a sphinx when he's looking upon All the crazy things going on But you really can't do anything wrong At the Black Cat back in Cairo Nice people stop and stare At the ladies passing there The gentlemen like Fred Astaire At the Black Cat back in Cairo

Where, is where I started out Where I started out for A long time ago? I, I used to be so certain then I used to be certain Now I don't really know Lines and signs Washed away by rain Lines and signs When I took a look away Where, is where I started out Where I started out for A long time ago? What, what was I heading for What was I heading for That was once so clear? Can you, can you show me please Can you show me in a picture Where I wanted to be? Once my dreams Shone like crystal light Now it seems They're lost in the cloud of night What, what was I heading for What was I heading for That was once so clear? Lines and signs Washed away by rain Lines and signs When I took a look away Where, is where I started out Where I started out for A long time ago? I, I used to be so certain then I used to be certain Now I don't really know I used to be certain Now I don't really know

Mongoola Bay 04:05
Volcano it is smoking Like a Russian merchant sailor No off the peg, my inside leg's With Jerico the tailor There's talk of evacuation Big ship in the harbour TV crews are coming through In boatloads by the hour Mongoola Bay No work, all play Volcano it is rumblin Echoes deep and long The band to play Strauss all day Have packed it in mid song Emil the pusher heads for His speedboat at the quay With his nieces and the chief of police's Wife for company Mongoola Bay No work, all play Mongoola Bay No work, all play Let's dance the night away Even the monkeys and the palm trees Learn to sway Volcano it is spouting Panic's on for real Riot! Wartime on the shoreline Police wear hats of steel Big ship it is listing People trampled on the ground A little plop, volcano stops And gulps its flames back down Mongoola Bay No work, all play Mongoola Bay No work, all play Mongoola Bay No work, all play

I'll show you the way of the world Famine, famine and feast Some lay right down with the lamb Others walk with the beast Like each of us can, each of us can, each of us Like each of us can, each of us can, each of us can Some people have more than they need Others, what they need least Some choose to empty their guns In the gardens of peace Like each of us can, each of us can, each of us Like each of us can, each of us can, each of us can I'll show you the way of the world Famine, famine and feast The honest may harvest their land But the honest also get fleeced Like each of us can, each of us can, each of us Like each of us can, each of us can, each of us can I'll show you the way of the world Famine, famine and feast

Toolittle Street The houses are beat Too many folk Think it's a joke Too many up all night Banging on, drumming Up all night Different tongues Deals get made each week But eyes never meet On Toolittle Street Toolittle Street It's a one-way street Everyone knows To ignore that flow Too many things in mind Breaking apart Things in mind Breaking the heart Carpets laid all neat But eyes never meet On Toolittle Street And if you catch someone dreaming Or smiling to themselves Go ask them if you feel unsure But it probably means It probably means They've been To Toolittle Street Where the houses are beat Too many folk Think it's a joke Too many up all night Banging on, drumming Up all night Different tongues Deals get made each week But eyes never meet On Toolittle Street But eyes never meet On Toolittle Street But eyes never meet On Toolittle Street Toolittle Street

Treats me fine Has a hold on time My honeysuckle lady Heaven sweet 24/7 treat My honeysuckle girl We almost never met I was rushing from a mess I stopped to touch A flower on a vine My honeysuckle By some funny luck I saw my dream appear Treats me fine Has a hold on time My honeysuckle lady Heaven sweet 24/7 treat My honeysuckle girl My honeysuckle girl

Toloosa 03:30
Living the life Poundland setting the dream Coming apart slowly From at the seams Living hand to mouth Only Jesus saves Bracing against The wind and the waves Oh Toloosa, don't wanna lose ya Thought we had love Now time's gotten tough All that it's shown Is that love's not enough All of our paths Crazy paved Bracing against The wind and the waves Oh Toloosa, don't wanna lose ya Oh Toloosa, don't wanna lose ya Where do I start? You carved a maze in my heart All of our paths Crazy paved Bracing against The wind and the waves Oh Toloosa, don't wanna lose ya Oh Toloosa, don't wanna lose ya Where do I start? You carved a maze in my heart Where do I begin? Shaking like a willow in the river wind Hope, it still lives In this wasted man Stronger in places Clean of the hand Bald eagle On Legal Aid Bracing against The wind and the waves Oh Toloosa, don't wanna lose ya Bald eagle On Legal Aid Bracing against The wind and the waves Oh Toloosa, don't wanna lose ya Oh Toloosa, don't wanna lose ya Oh Toloosa, don't wanna lose ya

Pick me up, I'll be as good as new You'll see Might be an old dog But I've still got some magic in me Pick me up, I'll start again Right away Walk beside you everywhere Every step of the way Dust me off, get a better view You will My favourite old coat Will help with the rain and the chill Dust me off, you know, all I'm saying You won't regret me staying Come what may I'll be there Every step of the way Old reliable, whatever the season Old reliable, whatever the reason When faced with troubled winds That's when my work begins Wipe me down, I'll come shining through Like a ray I'm the man with the smile You said you would need every day Wipe me down, well ain't it plain I should stay Bringing home hard-earned dough Every step of the way Pick me up, I'll be as good as new You'll see Might be an old dog But I've still got some magic in me Pick me up, I'll start again Right away Walk beside you everywhere Every step of the way Walk beside you everywhere Every step of the way

Leaving space For things to come Small town folk Beat small town drums Small town talk Small town views Read all about it In the small town news Small town boys Small town girls Never leave Their small town world Small town born In a small town they've grown Family around The small town home The cornershop, the run down pub The hairdressers and the rugby club The wayward daughter and that junky son Leaving space for things to come Leaving space For things to come Small town folk Beat small town drums Small town talk Small town views Read all about it In the small town news

John has gone back He wasn't taking out the bins Saw him last night He didn't mention anything I dread to think When the town gets to know Wish I didn't see His footprints in the snow He should of held out Can't be long 'til this ends They'll never forgive him now How can we stay friends He lasted this long We'll all be suffering from this blow Wish I didn't see His footprints in the snow Think I'll take a walk Get some fresh air Go down by the line Talk to the boys there Nothing to do now But I wish this wasn't so And I wish I didn't see His footprints in the snow John has gone back He wasn't taking out the bins Saw him last night He didn't mention anything I dread to think When the town gets to know Wish I didn't see His footprints in the snow Wish I didn't see His footprints in the snow
