  1. Uncle Charly Part One (The Little Rabbits)
    Uncle Charly and his Caroline
    Live in a little cottage on Walnut Ground
    Uncle Charly and his wife so good
    She's the Mother Theresa of the neighbourhood
     
    Uncle Charly what a compromise
    Between Holy Mary and a pillow fight
    Uncle Charly what a paradise
    He is the only one that makes my happy life
    A happy life
     
    What a compromise
    What a paradise
    Holy Mother what a sacrifice
     
  2. Wasting Time (The Little Rabbits)
    A quiet family living in the country
    A father, mother, son and his wife
    One table, four chairs, a cosy little kitchen
    A pile of cushions next to the telephone
    Harry's the father, Mary's the mother
    A timeworn deckchair next to the gramophone
    Sony's quiet listening to time
    Cos' it sounds like a blitzkrieg, sounds like a missile
     
    Happy sunny, sunny happy sunny days
    Where did you go and why did you go
    Sweetness sweetness, sweet tenderness
    Laugh of my life freak in my alleway
    When he said goodbye she said hello
    Just like the same old song on the radio
    They decided to call it the end of the line
    Time spent together is wasted time
     
  3. And I Will Cry (Chris Knox)

     

  4. So Many Friends of Mine (The Little Rabbits)
    "Si vous n'aimez pas la mer,
     Si vous n'aimez pas la montagne,
     Si vous n'aimez pas la ville,
     Allez vous faire foutre"

    Jim is just another friend of mine
    John is just another friend of mine
    Jess is just another friend of mine
     
    Richard is another friend of mine
    Grace is just another friend of mine
    Sarah is another friend of mine
    And Clara is another friend of mine
     
    Sharon is another friend of mine
    Tony is just another friend of mine
    Richard it is another waste of time
    Yeh Richard is another friend of mine
     
    Jesus is another friend of mine
    Patrick is another friend of mine
    Julius is another friend of mine
    And Sandy is another friend of mine
     
    My Woody is another friend of mine
    Jack is just another friend of mine
    Blue is just another friend of mine
    And Rose is another friend of mine
     
  5. Milton's Paradise Lost (The Little Rabbits)
    A holy paradise
    Just to show how I Miss Thee
    I can't sleep at night
    I really loved the way you kissed me
    Dancing in the sea
    Never mind if I can't talk to you
    I don't want to see the city lights
    The only thing I want is that you talk to me
     
    Talk to me, talk to me
    The only thing I want is that you talk to me
     
    Milton's paradise
    Lost in the webs of my memory
    I will never sleep at night again
    I really loved the way you kissed me
    Walking by the seaside
    Forget about my suicidal tendencies
    I don't want to see the satellites
    The only thing I want is that you talk to me
     
    Talk to me, talk to me
    The only thing I want is that you talk to me
     
  6. My Next Birthday (The Little Rabbits)
    Another day
    In my empty room
    Another gloomy sunday
    A handful of candles
    A chocolate cake
    Dripping ice cream comes
     
    Shall I wait or
    Shall I cut off the phone
    My next birthday
    I will spend it alone
    Alone, alone, alone
    Alone, alone, alone
     
    The constant roaring of a lorry
    Just like a slap in my face
    The distant calls of your fury
    This is no time to worry
    A single hour to celebrate
    My ever ending birthday party
     
    Shall I wait or
    Shall I cut off the phone
    My next birthday
    I will spend it alone
    Alone, alone, alone
    Spend it alone, alone, alone
     
    My next birthday
    I will spend it alone
     
  7. Lament of The Bathroom Sailor (The Little Rabbits)
    A mermaid of the pipeline
    I see her in my dreams
    She brought me out of the porcelaine
    And took my breath away
     
    I'm just a bathroom sailor
    And in my thinks I swim for the taps
    I sail and I sail as I seat on my raft
    But I just can't float away
     
    But if she could
    She'd take me out of swim
    Just take me out and take me in
    Breathe me out then breathe me in
     
    Yes if she could
    She'd meet me in my dreams
    And we'd sail the seven seas
    Up and down and round and round and I'd never be back again
     
  8. Dedalus (The Little Rabbits)
    I got my shoes on, I got my feet on
    But I can't find my way home
     
    I got my penny in my pocket
    But I can't find my way home
     
    They told me I had better take the cab
    And when I'm walking I'm just staring at the skylines
     
    I got a brother, I got a sister
    But I can't find my way home
     
    I got a compass in my pocket
    But I can't find my way home
     
    They told me I was living in a one way street
    And when I'm walking I'm just staring at my feet
     
    God help me, I can see the highway
    And father Whiskey yelling at me
    "Son, all roads lead to Rome"
     
    La la la...
     
    I got my shoes on, I got my feet on
    But I can't find my way home
     
    I got my penny in my pocket
    But I can't find my way home
     
    I got my car and I got my keys
    But I can't find my way home
     
    I got a compass in my pocket
    But I can't find my way home
     
    I got my hat on, I got my head on
    But I can't find my way home
     
    I got a sister, I got a brother
    But I can't find my way home
     
    I got a sister, maybe another
    But I can't find my way home
     
    But I've lost the penny in my pocket
    Cos' I don't want to find my way
     
  9. Another Breakfast Out (The Little Rabbits)
    I've got a 100 cars
    I've got a billion stars
    But I've got no place to hide
     
    I've got a 100 names
    I've a 100 thousand planes
    But I've got nowhere to die
     
    Another sunny day
    Another breakfast out
    So many things to say
    But for so long I've been lying
    By your side
    Wishing you were mine
     
    Another sunny day
    Another breakfast out
    So many things to say
    But for so long I've been lying
     
    So I am
    By your side
    Wishing you were mine
     
  10. Uncle Charly Part Two (The Little Rabbits)
    Uncle Charly's back in town
    She's got the baby, he's got the gun
    "Why do you keep on watching me now?"
    "Are you going to slap me down?"
     
    "There's one thing I've got to say"
    "I wish I'd spend a merry day"
    "Why do you keep on watching me now?"
    "Are you going to use the gun?"
     
    What a day
    If you could stay away
    What a day
    A day, a day
     
    What a day
    If you just stay away
    For a day
    A day, a day
    A day away
    A day
     
    Uncle Charly's back in town
    She's got the baby, he's got the gun
    "Why do you keep on watching me now?"
    "Are you going to slap me down?"
     
    What a day
    If you could stay away
    What a day
    A day, a day
     
    What a day
    If you just stay away
    For a day
    A day, a day
    A day away
    A day
     
  11. Crazy Notion (The Little Rabbits)
    I've lost my destination
    I've lost my crown
    I've played through every season
    Heaven be my guide
     
    You sat so permanently upstairs
    You sanctified
    My cross was made of leather
    Let wondering be my guide
     
    Fourty days, fourty nights
    Without a single sigh
     
    I've lost my destination
    But I've found my shrine
    Upstairs made to measure
    Angels be my guide
     
    You sat so kindly upstairs
    Manipulated
    My fall my find leisure
    Let silence be my guide
     
    Fourty years inside
    Without a single sigh
     
    I take it easy in my palace
    I take it easy I won't change my mind
    Such a lazy crazy notion
    I'll take it easy I will be my own guide
     
  12. Aunt Sally (The Little Rabbits)
    Aunt sally was so pretty
    With those scars on her face, her token head
    She had so much hair on her arms
    She had to brush them just to see her feet
    And her soul was so dark
    They should have burned the whole of her house down
    And her teeth, so stained
    She had 1,2,3,4
     
    Uncle Bob was a snob
    He had married Sally just to have a wife
    For his own, all his own
    He could have sold his son, father and soul for a penny
    Holy penny
    He would rather be dead, buried and eaten by worms
    But not broke, not broke, not broke
     
    Uncle Bob was a snob
    He had married Sally just to have her money
     
  13. Rosemary Queen of Prunes (The Little Rabbits)
    She locked herself up in our tiny bathroom
    Let me in, let me in
     
    But she's drowned out the day in the pool that she'd made
    A pool as deep and wide as the deepest bathroom
