Utopia's tribute/parody of The Beatles
There's a flame in the back of my mind And it's burning for you all the time 'Cause I just want to touch you Do you want to touch me too? Now I know that you've heard this before But with me it could mean something more And I just want to touch you Do you want to touch me too? Everybody says we're too young But I know all the things that they just can't see I just want to get inside you If you'll give just a minute to me (ooooh). So I've said everything that I can And I'm hoping that you'll understand That I just want to touch you And you want to touch me too.
Well, I've heard it, I've heard it all I've heard it all before I don't need no gypsy I don't need no crystal ball Since you started messin' round on me darlin' Now the phone's ringing off the wall And everybody says it's so I got a broken heart comin' and they want me to know And I've heard it all I don't need a crystal ball. I got a lady across the hallway I got another one way across town All the people at your birthday party You should hear the way they're puttin' me down? It seems the whole world's out to spy It's like the CIA meets the FBI And I've heard it all I don't need a crystal ball Well I've heard it all I don't need a crystal ball Well I've heard it all It ain't no surprise to me I don't watch no television I don't read the daily news I'm afraid if I listen to the radio I'll hear about the latest things you do I don't want no explanation Nothin' you could say could be a revelation And I've heard it all I don't need a crystal ball.
Said the world to the sun, "I must turn away, 'Cause my face is so ugly, I feel so ashamed" Tell me where does the world go to hide? All the people down here, they fight everywhere They destroy and they poison They don't even care So where does the world go to hide? Nobody cares what will happen to me And nobody cares if I cry There must be a reason to carry on But the pain is so bad I could die Said the sun to the people, "Now who is to blame?" But like scared little children they all ran away But where can the world go to hide? Tell me where can the world go to hide?
In the days when I was young I never had to cry If I wanted a lover I did not have to try But I must have set my expectations far too high Guess I'm just a silly boy I guess I'm just a silly boy There are some things about love that I don't understand When you promise your heart you do the best you can But no matter how I try behaving like a man Seems I'm just a silly boy I guess I'm just a silly boy This is the last time I'll wait to stand in line If you don't come see me I'm dropping the boom on you 'Cause when you lose me Then everyone will see what a silly girl can do Don't you tell me that it's over Don't you make a sound 'Til I get to the river or someplace I can drown 'Cause I put my faith upon you and you let me down Guess I'm just a silly boy I guess I'm just a silly boy
Let me ask you a question Will you lend me your ear Do you know the meaning of emptiness If not I'll make it clear Alone, alone Nobody knows how lonely it can be And I'm so tired of being alone. Let me tell you a story One you've probably heard One about the man who was lost And I can tell you in one word Alone, alone Nobody knows how lonely it can be And he was tired of being alone Alone, alone Nobody knows how lonely it can be And I'm so tired of being alone. There's an end to the fable Where does all of this lead That for everyone who needs someone There is someone there to need Alone, alone Someone is still alone Alone, alone Someone is still alone.
If you don't feel like dancing tonight, well that's all right And if you don't feel like holding me tight, well that's all right 'Cause I know that you love me And you'll show that you love me in your own sweet time But if you feel like hurtin' me baby, that's not right If you don't want to go anywhere, well I don't mind If you wanna stay home and play with your hair, I still don't mind 'Cause I know that you need me And you'll know how to please me in your own sweet time But if you want to leave me, well baby then I mind I know that I've been guilty of lying I know I had a whole lot of nerve But the way that you treat me since I begged your pardon Is something that I don't deserve And if you don't want to give me a date, well that's all right 'Cause I don't care how long I've got to wait, I've got all night 'Cause I know that you want to But you know that you're goin' to make me lose my mind And if you care a bit for me baby, that's not right
You can lead a horse to water You can lead a lamb to slaughter, oh yeah But the way she let me on her Well there ought to be a law girl But it's all over now 'cause I'm free born If you want my heart then it's yours My heart is my own, you can wrap it up and take it home If I take you for my lover You might break my heart all over, oooh yeah I can't stand to leave romances When you fall you take your chances But I don't care now 'cause I'm free born If you want my heart then it's yours My heart is my own, you can wrap it up and take it home
We've been invited to a cocktail party Over by the palace wall I've not been dressed up since my graduation Haven't been around at all Look what happens when you reach the top The whole world is your oyster You walk 'round like a bleeding fop Meet me outside the curiosity shop No need to bring money Life can be so funny When you're hangin' around with the hoi polloi The countess wipes her nose upon her sleeve Doesn't think that we can see The Duke of Astinbury has to leave He's afraid to dance with me Look what happens when you've got it made Everyone respects us No more mingling with the local trade As the hostess checks the sky for rain Her fifteen year old daughter Drives the patriarchal letch insane We'll be hangin' around with the hoi polloi
Life goes on, the world keeps turning and life goes on Life goes on, the world keeps turning and life goes on He was a company man He put his faith in the union and his take-home pay A good republican man But they closed down the factory his retirement day Life goes on whether or not there's a reason Life goes on, enter another season She was the pride of her dad But she harbored a secret in her bureau drawer And when the news was too bad She would get into trouble with the boy next door In the dead of the night They escape to their fantasy without a sound Her father still burns a light But they never returned and they were never found
Feel too good to go to work today I need a little more time so I can stay this way Let's go for a ride on the Circle Line Couldn't you use a day in the sunshine Mustn't let your bank payments get behind The bills may pile up, I just brush them off my mind I can't let debt collectors bother me Because I feel too good I feel so good that you just can't bring me down I can't remember when I felt so high My mind is on vacation and I don't know why Wouldn't you like to go for a country drive Doesn't it make you feel good to be alive Luncheon by the roadside will do just fine I left the water running It just must have slipped my mind Can't let the little things bother me Because I feel too good I feel so good that you just can't bring me down Someone's bound to bring you down There's a strange speaking man on the front lawn Making rude noises and gestures It's just the neighbor's got something on his mind Feel too good I can't let Frenchie start to bother me Because I feel too good I feel so good that you just can't bring me down
