and my personal favourite...

little James
we're all the same
always seem to look to us
we weren't meant to be grown ups
thank you for your smile
You make it all worth while to us

live for your toys
even though they make noise
have you ever played with plasticine
even tried a trampoline
thank you for your smile
you make it all worthwhile
to us

i'm singing this song
for you and yer mom
and that's all
it wont be long,
before everyone is gone

sailed out to sea
yer mom you and me
you swam the oceans like a child
life around us was so wild
thank you for your smile
you make it all worth while
to us

i'm singing this song
for you and yer mum
and that's all
it wont be long
before everyone is gone
Liam's songs dont count. That is an awful song, on a par with Weller's Sweatpea .

You're right about that Sweet Pea song, I can't believe the man who wrote Strange Town and Tube Station was reduced to writing such drivel.

Noel's lyrics are still vacuous.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

It's crap sure enough but it was song about his daughter.

As for Noel he's never claimed to be poet laureate.

Songs about offspring are in a horrific sub-genre all of their own. Is there a more vomit-inducing song than EC's Tears In Heaven?

For a second I thought: Elvis Costello write that?

I really like Moon On Your Pyjamas!

The lyrics are genius & it sounds great.
Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead...

I do like "Pink Thing" by XTC. Because it also doubles as a song about his crank, and that is deliciously creepy.

Intensely creepy, which earns Andy a pass on a lot of the substandard stuff he's done (e.g., Fuzzy Marbles).
Endut! Hoch Hech!

I feel that, had he lived, John Lennon would have loved Donkey Kong.

I feel that there is a fascistic element, for example, in the Rolling Stones . . .

I've studied the phenomenon of neo-provincialism in self-isolating online communities but this place takes the fucking cake.

Sure 'tis but on the whole you are right it's a crap sub-genre.

In his defence, I don't think Joe had finished the lyrics. But yeah, it's a bit garbled.
