“Bloody Well Right”

So you think your schooling’s phoney
I guess it’s hard not to agree
You say it all depends on money
And who is in your family tree
Right, you’re bloody well right
you know you got a right to say
Right, you’re bloody well right
you know you got a right to say
Ha-ha you’re bloody well right
you know you’re right to say
Yeah-yeah you’re bloody well right
you know you’re right to say
Me, I don’t care anyway!
Write your problems down in detail
Take them to a higher place
You’ve had your cry – no, I should say wail
In the meantime hush your face
Right, quite right, you’re bloody well right… etc.

“Breakfast In America”

Take a look at my girlfriend
She’s the only one I got
Not much of a girlfriend
Never seem to get a lot

Take a jumbo across the water
Like to see America
See the girls in California
I’m hoping it’s going to come true
But there’s not a lot I can do
Could we have kippers for breakfast
Mummy dear, Mummy dear
They got to have ’em in Texas
Cos everyone’s a millionaire

I’m a winner, I’m a sinner
Do you want my autograph
I’m a loser, what a joker
I’m playing my jokes upon you
While there’s nothing better to do

Don’t you look at my girlfriend
She’s the only one I got
Not much of a girlfriend
Never seem to get a lot

Take a jumbo cross the water
Like to see America
See the girls in California
I’m hoping it’s going to come true
But there’s not a lot I can do

“Child Of Vision”

Well, who do you think you’re foolin’?
You say you’re havin’ fun,
But you’re busy going nowhere,
Just lying in the sun.
You tried to be a hero,
commit the perfect crime
but the dollar got you dancing
and you’re running out of time.

You’re messin’ up the water
You’re rolling in the wine
You’re poisoning your body
You’re poisoning your mind
You gave me coca-cola
You said it tasted good
You watch the television
It tell you that you should.

How can you live in this way?

You must have something to say.

There must be more to this life.
It’s time we did something right.
Child of Vision, won’t you listen?
Find yourself a new ambition.

I’ve heard it all before
You’re saying nothing new
I thought I saw a rainbow
But I guess it wasn’t true
You cannot make me listen
I cannot make you hear
You find your way to heaven,
I’ll meet you when you’re there.

How can you live in this way?

You must have something to say.

We have no reason to fight,
cos we both know that we’re right.
Child of Vision, won’t you listen?
Find yourself a new ambition
