    Papers
    Album: Metropolitan Man. POsted by JJean


    Chorus:
    Papers, papers, read all about the news
    Papers, papers, filled with the daily blues

    On any page you will find disiater
    Servant killing off his master
    And a long lost hero coming out the jungle
    Someone's sseretes up for grabs
    Fortunes found in taxi cabs
    Find out how your leaders stall and stumble

    Chorus:papers, papers
    Inside stories about swindles
    Unearend incomes start to dwindle
    Of attempts to cross a dolphin with a seal
    There's such varied information on the problems of inflation
    That you wonder whether real is really real

    Chorus: Papers, papers
    They may have found oil beneath the sea
    Thank God for beauty that's on page three
    A naked lady means more to me, more to see

    Chorus: Papers, papers

    Pity The Poor Boy
    Album: Lucky Day. Posted by JJean

    I've been taken, I've been shaken
    I've learnt to laugh at my life going wrong
    Now I'm educated to the fact that life can fluctuate and break you
    I'm walking along under street lights glistening
    I'm taking to walls that never listen
    Pity the lonely boy who's going under
    Scratching for money's never funny
    It seems like a year since life was sunny
    Pity the lonely boy who's going under.

    I'm a dreamer, I'm a schemer
    How can I win in this world and survive
    I'll try anything, I'll do most anything to really make it
    None of the stuff that school has taught me
    Has prepared me for trouble that luck has brought me
    Pity the lonely boy who's going under
    It seems the only way I'll get it
    Is find me a girl who wants to make it
    And isn't particular about her man but then
    Pity the poor boy who's going under.

    Poor Boy
    By John Gordon
    Album: Alan Price. Posted by hollyh


    Well, I'm a poor boy
    I'm smarter than the rest
    I'm a poor boy
    I won't take second best
    I'm coming after you
    And there's nothing you can do
    So give me your love, love, love.

    I'm a poor boy
    And I've got myself a plan
    I'm a poor boy
    Goin' to steal you from your man
    There's nothing you can say
    'Cos I'll get you anyway
    So give me your love, love, love.

    Some were born to give
    Some were born to take
    I was born for taking everything I can make
    Some wer born to run
    Some were born to fight
    And I was born for loving and stealing in the night

    Well, I'm a poor boy
    But I'm going to the top
    I'm a poor boy
    I aint' never gonna stop
    I'm coming after you
    'Cos there's so much we could do
    So give me your love, love, love.

    Poor Jimmy
    Album: Savaloy Dip. Posted by hollyh

    There's like some smoke from a thousand cigarettes
    There's little fat men making big fat bets
    We're going fighting tonight to see Jimmy our pride and joy
    That wonderful bountiful tiny boy

    Who'll take Jimmy at six to four?
    Here's another gent saying that he won't hit the floor
    He's a hero of the junkyard, he's the daddy of them all
    But all the big champions must have a big fall.

    Now Jimmy's a local and he comes from the mine
    And now he fancies the women and the wine
    So with song and the tears, our hero will tumble
    And the dreams of all will start to crumble.

    Who'll take Jimmy at six to four?
    Here's another gent saying that he won't hit the floor
    He's a hero of the junkyard, he's the daddy of them all
    But all the big champions must have a big fall.

    Gimme gimme gimme gimmeee

    Who'll take Jimmy at six to four?
    Here's another gent saying that he won't hit the floor
    He's a hero of the junkyard, he's the daddy of them all
    But all the big champions must have a big fall.

    To the ring, with a jump and a skip,
    And you know that soon there'll be blood on his lip
    On his arms and on his thighs
    In his nose and on his eyes
    And all the neighbours will say, "oh what a surprise"

    Who'll take Jimmy at six to four?
    Here's another gent saying that he won't hit the floor
    He's a hero of the junkyard, he's the daddy of them all
    But all the big champions must have a big fall.

    Poor People
    Album: O Lucky Man. Posted by hollyh


    Poor people are poor people -
    And they don't understand
    A man's got to make whatever he wants-
    And take it with his own hands.

    Poor people stay poor people -
    And they never get to see
    Someone's got to win in the human race-
    If it isn't you, then it has to be me.

    So smile while you're makin' it-
    Laugh while you're takin' it-
    Even though you're fakin' it-
    Nobody's gonna know.
    Nobody's gonna know.

    It's no use mumbling.
    It's no use grumbling.
    Life just isn't fair-
    There's no easy days
    There's no easy ways
    Just get out there and do it!

    And sing and they'll sing your song-
    Laugh while you're getting on-
    Smile and they'll string along-
    And nobody's gonna know.
    Nobody's gonna know.
    Nobody's gonna know.
    And nobody's gonna know.
