Unless otherwise stated, all songs are either J.McColl and/or a combination of band members. I have surpressed the lyrics to the covers

You're My Best Friend (by J.Deacon/Queen)

Smile (Demo Version)
Fairly similar to the album version, but with one or two different lines.


Let It Bleat
I've had a sour taste in my mouth for a while,
Been so depressed, I'd love to see you smile.
I've had those dogs snapping at my heels
Under a bus is how I feel
These tyres are slashed and I know this wheel
Won't turn around,
I think I've run aground this time
This time.
This navel-gazing
It doesn't do any good,
If I could snap out I know I surely would
I've had the heepy-jeepies on my back,
Nobody seems to want to give me slack
Look in the mirror and the mirrors crack
I've taken all the flack,
I need a helping hand to get by
I've had sand kicked in my face,
I've lost things that I can't replace
I've looked around and there is no trace
I can't turn around,
I think I've run aground this time
This time
I think I've run aground this time[x2]

Tomato Man
My nails are bit down to the bone,
All I do these days is moan
I tell myself that maybe you will reconsider
Try and fix things up but I know you just recog??
Oh please don't let me down
Hung up when you're around
I'd cut off my arms for you
If you changed your point of view
Oh please don't let me down [x2]
I'm back to my old ways
That X? reason shallow grave
Every kiss, oh it means so much to me
I turn the radio on and I'm almost feet to weep
Oh please don't let me down
Hung up when you're around
I'd cut off my arms for you
If you changed your point of view
Oh please don't let me down [x2]
[guitar solo][repeat chorus]


Easy Life (TV Mix)
This remix is similar to the album version, but with one or two different effects.

Everyday Things Can Make You Happy
Insects, rainstorms,
Half-remembered childhood songs
Everyday things can make you happy
Changing seasons
Laughing for no reason
Everyday things can make you happy
Those cogs and wheels will turn anyway
Shadows in the sunshine
The way that three goes into nine
Everyday things can make you happy
The color of your lover's hair
Breathing in December air
In the summer
Everyday things can make you happy
Those cogs and wheels will turn anyway


My Door Is Open
Ah,
Sweetheart,
My door is open
So if you're sick of ironing
Come round here and do your thing with me
Sweetheart,
My door is open,
I may not be Robbie Williams,
But I will do the best I can you'll see
I may not be the one you want
I may not be the one you need,
You may not be the one I want
You may not be the one for me
Sweetheart,
My door is open
So if you're sick of stacking shelves
Come round here and stack something else
Sweetheart,
My door is open
I'll be Gerry, you'll be Tom
Unlike them we'll get along, you'll see
I may not be the one you want
I may not be the one you need,
You may not be the one I want
You may not be the one for me
Ba babada bah
Ah
Sweetheart,
My door is open

It's a Wonderful Life
It's been a wonderful life
That much is true
But I have no future without you
Life makes me fly/die with you
I've got more tears
I could disappear today
Where is my yellow brick road?
Where is my happy sleigh ride?
It's been a wonderful life
That much is true
I have no future without you
We don't know what were gonna do about yer
We don't know what were gonna do about yer
We don't know what were gonna do about you
About you
If I had a Billion Dollar Brain
I was almost gone
I still can find my way round this broken heart
Where is my port song in the storm
Oh don't remind me that, although
It's been a wonderful life
That much is true
I have no future without you
We don't know what were gonna do about yer
We don't know what were gonna do about yer
We don't know what were gonna do about you
[Repeat]
About you
[Drums with Effects]
It's been a wonderful life
That much is true
But I have no future without you
We don't know what were gonna do about yer
We don't know what were gonna do about yer
We don't know what were gonna do about you
[Repeat]
