He asked me "so where have you been?"
Let me think now let me see.
I stood once where Hitler's feet had stood when he made his speech
in Nuremburg in '38 he tried to build the perfect race,
he said "black man ain't gonna run alongside our perfect sons."
It was Dallas to the library, the place they ended Kennedy.
I stood where Oswald took his shot, in my opinion there's a bigger plot.
Costners back into the left, the picket fence, the better bet.
Paris came and Summer went, the tunnel's now a flower bed.
The famous turf that made Geoff Hurst, the vodka stops to quench my thirst.
Golden gate stroke Alcatraz and the fat man failed to get us passes.
Jimmy's corner in Raging Bull,
De Niro's jokes and bottled pills.
Elvis tales from Mr. Woodward, any Richard Burton if you could?
The tourists stare at tourist stops. One more picture, one more god.
Another top up for a change, it makes you think, it makes you sane.
Talking more about yourself, there's a mirror to have a check.
Cheques are always passing through, some depart but a lot come too.
Restaraunt talk of pick your teeth. You bite your tongue or chew your meat.
Sleep to drink or drink to sleep, one more week and we will meet.
We'll talk of what we haven't done since we departed back a month.
We argue why we have to shout.
All in all, it's nice to be out.

The music may be a little flat, but the lyrics are great.

wow, I hear no melody, no variety, no tune, no anything. This definitely isn't one of their better ones!

the best easy-listening pop band in these days... but don't try to go deeper!

Definitely not one of their better songs. But i urge the nay-sayers out there to give the You Gotta Go There to Come Back CD a listen. Especially Maybe Tomorrow and Nothing Precious at All.
They're really a talented group

Didn't listen to the lyrics (as usual), but musically this is about as exciting as a cardboard box. With no printing on it. And it's open, so you can see it's empty inside.

Very cool sound. Interesting lyrics. Enjoyable.

I just wish I got all of the references in this...gotta love the intelligent lyrics.

What a stinker! :puke:

A great song overall

i love stereophonics. they're so awesome. i'd love to hear a thousand trees and pick a part that's new. especially the latter.
any stereophonics is fine with me. ^_^

a 5.2 overall rating seems far to low for this highly decent song!

I am gonna have to check these guys out.

Good to hear Sterophonics on RP.... but this is not thier best.
Have a Nice Day is a better song.
Posted: Jul 06, 2003 - 08:45
more stereophonics please

how the words intelligent or eclectic could ever be assosciated with this band amazes me
Posted: Mar 26, 2003 - 10:08
Agreed. There are some really great songs on this album but this isn't one of them.
Posted: Mar 06, 2003 - 00:18
this is not one of the better songs on the album.
