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.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

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?

More proof:

Light Up My Life - BAD
Moon On Your Pyjamas - Paul Weller
Beautiful Boy - John Lennon

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).
Walrus birth doesn't make good breakfast conversation!

You mean Coma Girl makes sense?
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

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