Track Name: Stick To The Throughway
I said please Mr Socrates
Just let me finish my elevenses
You and your lateral thinking put me so ill at ease
I don’t have the time for a trip down the Euphrates today
Coz when you’re going to B from A
It’s quicker to stick to the throughway
When you’re going to B from A
It’s quicker to stick to the throughway

See that girl from the Hebrides
She’s much faster than Pheidippides
Catches her men with such expertise
Crossing from Brooklyn to Los Angeles twice a day
And when she’s travelling to LA
She always sticks to the throughway
When she’s travelling to LA
She always sticks to the throughway

Watch the stars from the big movies
They take vacation in the Pyrenees
Follow little boats on their water skis
They ain’t in no hurry – collected their fees yesterday
But if somebody owes you some pay
You’d better get down to the throughway
Yes if somebody owes you some pay
You’d better get down to the throughway
It’s where you’ve got to go
Track Name: Living In The City
Mama said you’d better believe it
Everyone’s got to go to school
Daddy said better be a good boy
Don’t want you growing up a fool

Tell everybody that I used to know
I’m livin’ in the city now playin’ rock ‘n’ roll

My brother said don’t give in easy
Sister said try to stay cool
Teachers told me rebels get nowhere
It’s best to stick to the rules

Well tell everybody that I used to know
I’m livin’ in the city now playin’ rock ‘n’ roll

The preacher didn’t give me no bible
So how’d he expect me to settle down?
We always had good times
Friends was easily found

Yes you can tell everybody that I used to know
I’m livin’ in the city and playin’ rock ‘n’ roll

Some things sure come easy
But others you’ve got to work for
The little girl who caught my eye
Only lived next door

But I never did get to kiss her

If you feel like getting out
To live a life on your own
You can’t stay trapped in
This barbed-wire battle zone

Tell everybody that I used to know
I’m livin’ in the city
I’m playin’ rock ‘n’ roll
Track Name: I Lost My Wife For A Pint Of Burton
I like my beer and I like my wine
I used to like my woman, ‘cause she’d treat me kind
She was there last night when I got home
But I woke up this morning to find she’d gone

She’s a lullaby when you need one
A butterfly in any season

My behaviour was good when it might have been bad
I looked after her as much as every drink I ever had
She must have been upset to want to leave me this way
Sneaking out in the dark instead of waiting for day

She’s a diplomat for certain
As tasty as a pint of burton

It’s important things that you always forget
Like I can’t recall how or when we met
Was there snow on my shoes or the sun on my back?
Was it a second-hand Ford or a new Cadillac?

She’s the sunrise when you see her
A rainbow of sound to hear

I suppose we got married after a while
Rented a place and had us a child
But I can’t be sure if that’s how things went
We could have had kittens while we lived in a tent

She’s the memory I’m missing
When I say she was real I’m just guessing

When I go for a drink it's to the Felbridge Star
Which is one of the best places near and far
Joe's okay and he'll treat you fine
Unless you cause trouble or you step out of line

And the burton that he sells is pretty tasty
Though sometimes it runs out if I drink too much
Just like my wife ran out when I drank too much
