New Flat

 (Hofstede)


East west home's best

There's no place like home

No letters in the box

No voices on the phone

Elevator up and down

Floor one to ten

When I'm almost on the street

I go up again

New flat!

Big table small bed

New kitchen too

Neighbours I've never met

And I don't need you

Home's where the heart is

This heart of stone

Litter in the box

Noises on the phone

New flat big table and a small bed

New flat black white yellow blue red

New flat skyline I'm looking at

New flat neighbours I've never met

There's a suitcase filled with

Interesting papers nervous little

Drawings of the many big inventions

That I've made

East west home's best

Don't be my guest

I wanna be alone

Cos' there's no place like home



Holiday on Ice

 (Hofstede)


She's so innocent

He's so different

On this mountain in Switzerland

She knows nothing 'bout boys

He had too much choice

On this mountain in Switzerland

The instructor is a handsome man

He's going up and down again

Oh no I oh no no I

She knows nothing 'bout boys

He had too many toys

On this mountain in Switzerland

He's so different

She's so innocent

On this mountain in Switzerland

She's a typist she's a tourist

Like an iceberg never been kissed

Oh no no I oh no no I

Don't wanna spend my holiday on ice

She's so different

He's so innocent

On this mountain in Switzerland

He knows nothing 'bout boys

She had too much choice

On this mountain in Switzerland

The vulcano's covered up with snow

It's twenty-five below zero

Oh no I oh no no I

Don't wanna spend my holiday on ice



Saragossa

 (Peters)


Saragossa mating season

Got to go to-day

It's my nature versus reason

Somehow I can't stay

I am an eel somewhere

Out in the ocean

Finding it's way on his own

Fresh water salt water

Gulf streams and cold water

Only one sea is my home

Saragossa mating season

Got to go to-day

It's my nature versus reason

Somehow I can't stay



Office at Night

 (Hofstede)


In the office at night

Someone switched off the light

Young man standing by the window

Looking down on the street below

In the office at night

And the light falls through

The windows on the sidewalks

And the light falls through

The windows on the sidewalks

On the corner at night

There's a bar with some tables

Near the window

Coloured squares where the

Nighthawks meet

Creeping out of the dark street

On the corner at night

And the light falls through

The windows on the sidewalks

And the light falls through

The windows on the sidewalks



Uncle on Mars

 (Hofstede)


I said it's incredible

You said it's not true at all

Car hits car kills car hits car kills

I said it's a miracle

You said it's incredible

Car hits car kills car hits car kills

My uncle went to Mars he is out there

Looking at the stars uncle on Mars

My uncle went to Mars he is out there

Looking at the stars uncle on Mars

I said it's incredible

You said it's not true at all

Car hits bikes and family targets

I said it's a miracle

You said it's not true at all

Car hits car kills car hits car kills

My uncle went to Mars he is out there

Looking at the stars uncle on Mars

My uncle went to Mars he is out there

Looking at the stars uncle on Mars

Breakfast in those strange hotels

No one listens no one tells

Running in dark cinemas

Looking for the exit



Statue

 (Peters)


He doesn't talk much

He doesn't move about either

No one likes him

No one dares to come nearer

It started harmlessly

Heavy on every knee

Couldn't tell from the start

He was a piece of art

He's becoming

He's becoming a statue

Not a bit like

Bit like me and you

He is very

Very much his own man

Look his face!

He's a made out of stone man

It started harmlessly

Heavy on every knee

Couldn't tell from the start

He was a piece of art

We think he's becoming

He's becoming a statue

A statue

Tell me Harry

Harry is that you ?



His First Object

 (Hofstede)


Fresh shirts in the drawer

Fast train to the city

His first object

Had to protect

Locked behind doors

His first object

Fresh shirts in the drawer

Fast train to the city



Different Kitchen

 (Hofstede)


He is standing in the living room

She is sitting on the bedroom floor

They are talking to each other on the babyphone

He lights another cigaret

She is re-arranging pillows on the bed

Kids in the kitchen rain outside she wants a

Different house different garden different table

Different chair different make-up different dress

Different kitchen different

He likes the girls young and rich

Taking showers in their sunny homes

Wet footprints towels lipstick

He spends his weekends at the zoo

Elephant snake monkey

Kids in the car and rain outside he wants a

Different girl different car different suit

Different watch different heart different beat

Different girl she's different different

Different house different garden

Different girl different suit

Different nose different food

Different elbow different smile

Different T-shirt different oo

Different clothes different feet

Different eyes different job

Different money different life

Different room different wife

Different table different chair

Different car different flat

Different heart different home

Different kitchen different



Safety in Numbers

 (Peters)


No one can harm me

This is my army

No one can hurt me

No one deserts me

I'm walking up front you're lagging behind

I want action don't need peace of mind

You stay on your own and say we are wrong

You're strange and you're restless you keep looking on

I'm in the crowd I'm never alone

We're carrying sticks and we're carrying stones

You say we are scared I know you are too

Why don't you join us there's a place for you

Join us now why don't you join us

Now why don't you join us

Say why don't you join

I'm walking up front you're lagging behind

I want action don't need peace of mind

You stay on your own and say we are wrong

You're strange and you're restless you keep looking on

You seem to believe the things that you read

Why don't you give up it's all that you need

We only believe the things that we do

Why don't you join us there's a place for you

Join us!!

Now why don't you join us

Now why don't you join us

Say why don't you join

Zebra

 (Peters)


Wait! Cross now!

Wait! Cross now!

Wait! Cross now!

Wait! Cross now!

Here I am on the zebra

Here I am on the zebra

Laughing cars traffic war

Grinnin' grilles iron smiles

Traffic war laughing cars

Iron smiles grinnin' grilles

Here I am on the zebra (repeat)

Look left look right

Look right look out!!

Not a traffic light in sight



Rubber Gloves

 (Peters)


She was a chanceless contender in the Deborah Harry

Look alike contest a long time ago

He was an upcoming doctor wearing rubber gloves

That is the reason he was stealing the show

She looking at him

She looked at him and thought of something to say

He looked at her

He looked at her and she was looking away

Will they meet in time? Will they meet in time?

He'd love to take her home and tell her

'Bout the romantic disease he had got

She didn't know she didn't believe him

There is no reason there is no plot

Will they meet in time?

Will they meet in time?

Reason and rhyme

She's still a chanceless contender in the Deborah Harry

Look alike contest who lost in the end

He's still an upcoming doctor wearing rubber gloves

That is the reason she refused him her hand

Will they meet in time?

Will they meet in time?

A chanceless contender in the Deborah Harry

Look alike contest who lost in the end



Bite Better Bark

 (Hofstede)


They hide in the curtain

They smell I'm not certain

In the night

Domestic animals bite

They scratch they've got nails

In the dark

Domestic animals bark

His bite is better than his bark

When you meet him in the dark

His bite is better than his bark

He's a comfort for the ladies

He's a danger for the babies

In the dark

Domestic animals bark

They hide in the curtain

They smell I'm not certain

In the night

Domestic animals bite

His bite is better than his bark

When you meet him in the dark

His bite is better than his bark

His bite is better

His bite is better

His bite is better than his bark
