Track Name: 32 Turns
If I –
wasn’t so shy,
I would put on my point shoes.
If I –
wasn’t so coy,
I would dance on point for you.

If I had a clue what to do,
just to show you how I’m liking you,
I would do 32 –
32 turns for you.

And i would jive dance,
and i would swing,
and i would headstand
and everything.
Track Name: The Fight In You
I like the fight in you.
I like the right in you.
I like the fight in you
I like the right in you.

I’ve got nothing on you,
got nothing on you,
got nothing on you.

I think you’re a tiger,
and I’m a pussy cat.
I think you’re a tiger,
and I’m a pussy cat.

Your cause…
Your claws…
Your cause…
Your claws…

And i’m in awe of you,
in awe of you,
in awe of you.
Track Name: Look Up
Won't you open your eyes and look up.
Ooh, boy, won't you open your mind and look up.
Won't you open your eyes and look up.
Ooh, boy won't you open your mind and look up.

Boy, won't you open your eyes and look up.
Ooh, boy, won't you open your mind and look up.
Boy, won't you open your eyes and look up.
Ooh, boy, won't you open your mind and look up.

(Cuz baby) I've got love
on my mind.
Baby I'm not good enough
to get it right this time.
Track Name: Golden Shoes
I just run on through [repeat]

[Clive]

In my golden shoes.
In my golden shoes.
I just run on through
in my golden shoes.

I ain't stopping for nothing.
I ain't stopping for nothing.
I ain't stopping for nothing, I ain't stopping, I ain't stopping...
for nothing.

Ain't the boss of me... [repeat]

I keep going like the kick, snare.
I keep going like the kick, snare.
I keep going with the kick, snare.
I keep going like the kick, snare.

My body keeps on ticking over [repeat]
Track Name: Get Thee To A Nunnery
Is it true what they say:
a woman’s love is brief?
Would you play in the brook,
and give me grief?
Would you leave me howling
like you wouldn’t believe?
Go breaking branches
up in willow trees?

Get thee to a nunnery,
get me a copy of the key.
How you torture so lovingly...
it’s the devil what you’re doin’ to me.
For you, I’d lose a good night’s sleep.
For you, I’d make it through the week.
For you, I’d make the staircase creak.
Fall in love with the shape of your feet.

For you...
For you...
For you...
Fall in love... [x2]

Get thee to a nunnery,
get me a copy of the key
How you torture so lovingly...
it’s the devil what you’re doin’ to me.
For you, I’d lose a good night’s sleep.
For you, I’d make it through the week.
For you, I’d make the staircase creak.
Fall in love with the shape of your feet.

Is it true what they say:
a woman’s love is brief?
Would you play in the brook,
and give me grief?
Would you leave me howling
like you wouldn’t believe?
Go breaking branches
up in willow trees?
Track Name: Castanets
Let’s go somewhere with water.
Let’s lie-in, till forever.
And we can be achingly happy.
And we can be like Cash and June Carter.

Think I can see the future
and we’re handcuffed together
and we can be achingly happy
and we can be like Cash and June Carter

I never used to like the word baby,
but now you’ve got me singing it, baby,
like it’s nineteen sixty three,
the Ronettes and castanets playing endlessly.

Let’s go somewhere with water.
Let’s lie-in, till forever.
And we can be achingly happy.
And we can be like Cash and June Carter.
Track Name: Come On Under
[Clive]

[Ollie]

Baby, I ain’t a jealous guy, but it’s gotta be said:
throw Blue Bear and Ted Bear off the end of the bed.
We got everything we need; how can we ever get bored,
tying stockings to the dissipating head board.
Turn the fan on two, put the breaks on the castor wheels,
do this forever till the paint on the plaster peels.
She’s the avocado with tomato on my toast,
I’m sharing with her trivia, like: hey, did you know that –
there’s a whole Narnia, under this flat sheet.
She’s like: “woah woah woah” - my thoughts exactly.
Come on under, bring the acres of leg.
F*** the broken bed, we’ll take the floor instead.
Come to fix it with a drill and countersinker,
she comes to me with tea, making me a happy camper.
Ain’t a carpenter alive, can stop this thing from creaking.
Not even Jesus can stop the springs squeaking.

[Ollie]

Let’s see what i can do with your latissmus dorsi,
I’ll manipulate your erector spinae, before I -
then use my elbows, and get kneading your trapezius,
and then continue this with the gluteus maximus.
Track Name: Poinsettia
And i don’t wanna play it down,
every time that we roll around.
And I know I won’t let ya down,
any time I ever come around.

In the winter storm,
want you to keep me warm,
want you to keep me safe from harm.

Do you swoon like fifty choristers all do on Sankta Lucia?
Do you light up the darkness when it’s longer in the winter?
Do you move through the people and you’re turning all their peepers?
Do you swoon, oh, do you swoon, oh, do you swoon?
You’re my flower, my poinsettia.
Set me on fire, yeah, cuz I’m letting ya.
Don’t you know, I'm way ahead ‘a ya
Don’t you know you’re my favourite colour, yeah.

[Clive]

[chorus]

How can I go to work, with ya lying in my bed?
How can I commute, writing poems in my head?
And when the night walks with heavy steps,
I’m thinking of you when the blackness descends, yeah.
I can’t forget ya, my poinsettia.
I can’t forget ya, I’m telling ya.
After a date, can we lie-in late?
Like, hi there, babe, can we hibernate?

[Clive]

Are you especially fond?
Are you especially fond?

You set my swede on fire [repeat]

Are you especially fond?
Track Name: Not Erased
When I’m feeling tender and I’m delicate
This run of luck is deliberate,
and it’s all falling into place.

We have patterns that we go through every day.
I’m in a good loop and it’s holding sway,
and it’s all falling into place

[x2]

It’s all falling into place,
you’re here and I’m not displaced.
It’s all falling into place,
you’re here, you're here and it’s not erased.
It’s all falling into place,
you’re here and i’m not displaced.
It’s all falling into place,
you’re here and it’s not erased.
Track Name: Ursa Major
There we sway,
make new shapes.
Amateur
stargazers.

Ursa Major.
The Big Dipper.
80 light years,
just to reach us.
Track Name: Slipstreams
I will swim in your slipstream,
if you swim in mine.
Let’s slip into the city.
We have all the time.

Then go out like a light. [x4]

We could keep it hush hush.
Invitation only.
We could take it -
achingly slowly.

[chorus x2]
