    Alan Price & Georgie Fame tracks

    Rosetta

    By Mike Snow

    Well my little girl is a sweet little girl
    But she does things make your eyebrows curl:
    You let her loose on a Friday night
    You know it's gonna end in a fight.

    Rosetta drinks her whiskey neat
    She gets in a fight and she might get beat:
    So I go round on the Saturday night
    And ask her if she feel allright.

    Rosetta are you better
    Are you well well well
    Rosetta are you better
    Are you well well well
    Well well well
    Well well well

    When Friday comes she's fine again
    So we go to a club where we got friends:
    Knocked on the door but we couldn't get in
    'Cos the boss don't want no fuss.

    So we went up town and drank around
    And Rosie ended on the ground
    So I took her home and I put her to bed
    And you can guess what I said.

    Rosetta are you better
    Are you well well well
    Rosetta are you better
    Are you well well well
    Well well well
    Well well well

    Yellow Man

    By Randy Newman

    Very far away in a foreign land
    Lives a yellow woman and a yellow man
    He's been around for many a year
    They say they were there before we were here

    Eatin' rice all day
    While the children play
    You see he believes
    In the family
    Just like you and me

    Oh, yellow man, yellow man
    We understand, you know we understand

    Ra-te-dah-ra-te-dah...

    He keeps his money tight in his hand
    With his yellow woman, he's a yellow man
    Eatin' rice all day
    While the children play
    You see he believes
    In the family
    Just like you and me

    Oh, yellow man, yellow man
    We understand, you know we understand

    Ra-te-dah, ra-te-dah...

    He keeps his money tight in his hand
    With his yellow woman, he's a yellow man
    You've got to have a yellow woman
    When you're a yellow man

    The Dole Song

    I left my soul down a hole
    Now I'm signing on the dole
    And there ain't no more money coming my way
    I've tried my hand at this and that
    I've even tried bein' a Democrat
    But there ain't no equal pay coming my way

    I took schoolin' in my stride
    My horizons were so wide
    But I reached too high --
    I slipped and fell and festered
    It's a wipeout
    A strikeout
    Tell 'em all about it

    My room has posters on the wall
    Plastic bombs stacked in the hall
    And people just don't know what's coming their way
    My philosophy is plain
    As I've nothing much to gain
    I'll take as many as I can when I go my way

    I took schoolin' in my stride
    My horizons were so wide
    But I reached too high --
    I slipped and fell and festered
    It's a wipeout
    A strikeout
    Tell 'em all about it

    My room has posters on the wall
    Plastic bombs stacked in the hall
    And people just don't know what's coming their way
    My philosophy is plain
    As I've nothing much to gain
    I'll take as many as I can when I go my way

    Burn, baby, burn
    Burn it to the ground
    Burn, baby, burn
    I wanna watch it all burn down
    Burn, baby, burn
    I wanna watch the world burn down
    Burn, baby, burn...
