Over bridge of sighs To rest my eyes in shades of green Under dreaming spires To Itchycoo Park, that's where I've been (What did you do there?) I got high (What did you feel there?) Well, I cried (But why the tears there?) I'll tell you why It's all too beautiful, it's all too beautiful It's all too beautiful, it's all too beautiful I feel inclined to blow my mind Get hung up, feed the ducks with a bun They all come out to groove about Be nice and have fun in the sun I'll tell you what I'll do (what will you do?) I'd like to go there now with you You can miss out school (won't that be cool?) Why go to learn the words of fools? (What will we do there?) We'll get high (What will we touch there?) We'll touch the sky (But why the tears then?) I'll tell you why It's all too beautiful, it's all too beautiful It's all too beautiful, it's all too beautiful I feel inclined to blow my mind Get hung up, feed the ducks with a bun They all come out to groove about Be nice and have fun in the sun It's all too beautiful, it's all too beautiful It's all too beautiful, hah It's all too beautiful, it's all too beautiful It's all too beautiful, it's all too beautiful It's all too beautiful, it's all too beautiful

Once upon a time, not too long ago, we took a day out in Manchester We all fall down, there's not enough hours in the day Played a bit of football, fell into the Union Barged our way into the toilet With the Kung-Fu King There's not enough hours in the day I remember seeing someone dressed in a suit, looking like a lunatic And we all fall down, there's not enough hours in a trip Well, academy cartwheels breaking your hand But we got lovely posters for sale And we all fall down, there's not enough hours in a day We like loving, yeah, and the wine we share We like loving, yeah, and the wine we share Finally made our way back to the train, rolling into Sheffield tonight And it all falls down, there's not enough hours in a life So try and guess my weight, waiting at the station Whippin' Piccadilly tonight, and it all falls down There's not enough hours in a life We like loving, yeah, and the wine we share We like loving, yeah, and the wine we share

Well, they'll stone you when you're trying to be so good They'll stone you just like they said they would They'll stone you when you're trying to go home And they'll stone you when you're there all alone But I would not feel so all alone Everybody must get stoned Well, they'll stone you when you're walking on the street They'll stone you when you're tryin' to keep your seat They'll stone you when you're walkin' on the floor They'll stone you when you're walkin' to the door But I would not feel so all alone Everybody must get stoned They'll stone you when you're at the breakfast table They'll stone you when you are young and able They'll stone you when you're tryin' to make a buck Then they'll stone you and then they'll say "good luck" Tell ya what, I would not feel so all alone Everybody must get stoned Well, they'll stone you and say that it's the end Then they'll stone you and then they'll come back again They'll stone you when you're riding in your car They'll stone you when you're playing your guitar Yes, but I would not feel so all alone Everybody must get stoned alright Well, they'll stone you when you walk all alone They'll stone you when you are walking home They'll stone you and then say you are brave They'll stone you when you are set down in your grave But I would not feel so all alone Everybody must get stoned

Hey Jude 06:11
Hey Jude, don't make it bad. Take a sad song and make it better. Remember to let her into your heart, Then you can start to make it better. Hey Jude, don't be afraid. You were made to go out and get her. The minute you let her under your skin, Then you begin to make it better. And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain, Don't carry the world upon your shoulders. For well you know that it's a fool who plays it cool By making his world a little colder. Hey Jude, don't let me down. You have found her, now go and get her. Remember to let her into your heart, Then you can start to make it better. So let it out and let it in, hey Jude, begin, You're waiting for someone to come home to. And don't you know that it's just you, hey Jude, you'll do, The movement you need is on your shoulder. Hey Jude, don't make it bad. Take a sad song and make it better. Remember to let her under your skin, Then you'll begin to make it Better better better better better better, oh. Na na na nananana, nannana, hey Jude...

Past midnight's hold Where the world's awaiting I'll wait for your love But I close my eyes, as there's pain too in paradise And we pay our price, now Hey baby say, just what you're thinking Know I know it, yeah, feel I'm sinking Know I feel it, I know you feel it too Across the water, there's a boat that Will take us away Yeah, yeah yeah yeah It was shining for me All I need it to be But I can't find the key The one to make me believe Late at night When the world is dreaming Way past the stars That ignore our fate, all twinkle too late to save us So we save ourselves. Hey baby do, just what you're thinking Know I know it, yeah, feel I'm sinking Know I feel it, I know you feel it too Across the water, there's a boat that Will take us away Far from the madness, out of the sadness Into sunlight, yeah out of the sinking You know I feel it, I know you feel it too Across the water, there's a boat that will take us away And there we will stay

about

It has been said, that the cover photo on this album, looks like a bunch of accountants on a night out, not a rock and roll band! Well, I'll have you know, we had just played a most thunderous gig at the Durham University Cricket Club Dinner, at Riverside Cafe in the Students' Union building. Two tracks from this album, "Fire" and "Song 2" were taken from this gig.

I will let you be the judge of whether we rocked sufficiently hard.

Oh, and Stu (singer) and Simo (drummer) went on to make very fine careers for themselves in the financial sector, so don't knock accountants!!!
