David Essex On And On

You’re like a song

A song dat come and go

Beneath the chord

A melody that seems to linger on

You’re on and on

A movie queen

The sequin goddess of the movie screen

Picture of a picture that I’ve seen

You’re on and on

You’re my song

Her clown can cry

His tears will fill our eyes

The memories that you’ve seen

Were made of velvetine

Your yesterdays have gone

But yesterdays live on

You’re on and on

A magic spell

A shooting star

That sound like a silver bell

Something out of heaven must have fell

You’re on and on

Oh let it ring

The magic a magician gets to sing

Let me be your blue eyed harlequin

You’re on and on

You’re on and on

You’re my song

You’re on and on

David Essex A Winter’s Tale

The nights are colder now

Maybe I should close the door

And anyway the snow has covered all your footsteps

And I can follow you no more

The fire still burns at night

My memories are warm and clear

But everybody knows it’s hard to be alone at this time of year

It was only a winter’s tale

Just another winter’s tale

And why should the world take notice

Of one more love that’s failed?

A love that could never be

Though it meant a lot to you and me

On a world-wide scale we’re just another winter’s tale

While I stand alone

A bell is ringing far away

I wonder if you hear, I wonder if you’re listening

I wonder where you are today

Good luck, I wish you well

For all that wishes may be worth

I hope that love and strength

Are with you for the length of your time on Earth

It was only a winter’s tale

Just another winter’s tale

And why should the world take notice

Of one more love that’s failed?

It’s a love that could never be

Though it meant a lot to you and me

On a world-wide scale we’re just another winter’s tale

It was only a winter’s tale

Just another winter’s tale

And why should the world take notice

Of one more love that’s failed?

It’s a love that could never be

Though it meant a lot to you and me

On a world-wide scale we’re just another winter’s tale

David Essex Out On The Street

Out on the street there

People are moving

Winning and losing

Out on the street

Out on the street

Out on the corner

The pimp and the ponces

Strawberry blonded, hooker lies low

In a alley of love

They come and they go

Back to the shadows

Out on the corner

She waits for a lover

Who crawls in the gutter

For cigarette ends

Or money to spend

Alone in the city

She smile she look pretty

You’ve money to burn

Why not take a turn

Head spinning with wine

But you know that’s it’s time

For good times, only good times

You say

How much is your body?

Are you worth what you cost me?

But what do you touch?

No I’ve only this much!

You climb the stairs

To a room waiting there

Alone but together

You look at each other

Bowing your head

She say was it something I said?

Do you want whiskey or rum?

Would you like to have fun?

But you turn and run

Ouuuuutt

Out, on, the street

Ouuuuutt

Down and out, out on the

Down and out, out on the

Down and out, out on the

Down and out, out on the streeeeeeeeeeeet

Wooooaaaaaaaaw

Alone in his bedroom

He sits watching the moon

Tears on his face

He stares into space

Oh what a waste

And what a disgrace

Wanting and needing

But losing the thread

Sitting in corners

He stares at his bed

The devils inside him

The gel next door said

Take him the way out

He paid for the ride

Twisting and turning

And dying inside

But oh how he tried

Oh how they lied

Oh ho look at that man

Lying in the gutter

Gutter

Oh oh look at that man

Why do you think his suffer suffer

There’s, no reason at all

Why he can’t be straight

There’s no reason on earth

Why you can’t be regular

Oh oh look at that man

Do ya think he’s cryin’ cryin’

Oh oh look at that man

Yes I think he’s dying dying

There’s, no, reason why

Why he can’t be straight

There’s no reason on earth

Why ya can’t be regular

Regular

Regular

Regular

Oh Regular

Regular

Regular

Out on the street there

Police cars are screaming

Blue lights are flashing

Into the room

Into his tomb

Into the black night

A winding the blue light

Crossing the river

They try but give up

He’s cold to their touch

He’s cold to their touch

Ouuuuutt

Down, on, the street

Whhhyyyy

Down and out, out on the

Down and out, out on the

Down and out, out on the

Down and out, out on the streeeeeeeeeeeet!

Yeah yeah
