Track Name: Stuck on a Train
From Dagenham Heathway to Upton Park
Life’s peculiar after dark
Stopped at Aldgate East
And ran into a priest
Does it only happen to me

Tried to leave at Turnham Green
Packed inside like a sardine
And at Acton Town
The chips were down
When I finally realized

I’m stuck on a train
Down here in the underground
Train
I gotta get off

Crossing Bromley-By-The-Bow
I’m only two years late by now
And by Chiswick Park
I made a harsh remark
When I finally realized
Track Name: Holly Mole
Thought I saw her standing there
With her dark and dazzling hair
But as I drove up
It was another made girl

Was a deer now she’s a rat
And I fear that’s where it’s at
Squeezed me with her paws
And left me paralyzed

CHORUS
Holly Mole is on the run
She’s the daughter of a gun
And when you’re burning inside
There’s nowhere to hide

Phone was buzzing yesterday
A crackling voice in my ear said
Better change the lock
Or I’ll be wearing cement shoes

She’s been gone for ten years now
The streets have settled down somehow
But when I try to sing
Out comes nothing but the blues
Track Name: Stealing the Show
I was wandering through the night
In the docks of this old city
When I chanced upon the light and darkness of One-Step Avenue
On the ground there was a box
And a lightning fell right on me

And I dashed for
The dance floor
I can't believe I'm

CHORUS
Stealing the show
Oh no
Stealing the show
Stealing the show
Oh no
Stealing the show

When I came to my senses
I was once again a nobody
And I recollected my pretenses at One-Step Avenue
Then I gazed upon the box
In the hands of a vagabond

And she dashed for
The dance floor
I can't believe she's

CHORUS

Now you wonder
About the wonder
Of the strange docks
And the dance box
But who cares when you're

CHORUS
Track Name: Scofflaws (demo)
Three cheers for Norma
She's a minor recluse
Never trust a girl who's got nothing to lose
Spud's not a liar
Spud's not a crook
He just don't think that you can live all by the book

Four losers in a conjugation
A party for investigation

CHORUS
In a cloud of blue smoke
We're off in the Mini Moke again
Another adventure awaits at the end

Did you meet Lucky
He's one unlucky guy
Been a jailbird almost 27 times

Four losers in a conjugation
A party for investigation

CHORUS

Can you remember?
Your nick was "The Brain"
On reflection, it was one sarcastic blame

Four losers in a conjugation
A party for investigation

CHORUS
