Dexys Nowhere Is Home

I now know no romantic situation

Will won in success, nothing

Can make me happy

No rose gardens for me

That’s not self pity, no

That’s the truth, yes that’s the truth

Nowhere is home to me

Nowhere is home to me

I was born here of an Irish family

But that in itself is not too good for me

Because national identity won’t fulfill me

I don’t fit that kind of all the pagin I read

Oh no that is not me

That’s just not me

Nowhere is home to me

Nowhere is home to me

I don’t know oh, where I belong

I’ve been all over this great big hell

I never thought there’s a place where I could be

But, it’s a lie, it’s a filthy lie

Nowhere is home to me

Nowhere is home to me

No place in the country

There’s no kind of city

Not a college ring for me

It doesn’t have appeal for me

I gotta be what I believe I can’t be

Anybody else’

I just gotta be myself

Take your Irish stereotype and shove it up your ass

Not what I want for me

I am a T bird that is she’s not for me

And now I’m gonna be free

Come on

Everybody say

I want to be everything, I wanna be the man of my dreams

And I can’t be a fucking stereotype

But it’s lonely being here and living this fight

But I won’t give in

I will not cave in

Until I become free

Until I become free

Ayay, ayay, ayay ah

I will become free

Ayay, ayay, ayay ah

I will become free

Yes, yes

Ayay, ayay, ayay ah

I will become free

Dexys It’s O.K. John Joe

It’s ok to be a private person John, It’s ok,

You have to watch for isolation though, that can be dangerous,

I don’t show much of myself in life but in my music I tend to put it all in,

It’s like I’ve got a need to get it all out of me,

I can’t be what anybody wants me to be, and neither can you,

I’m only learning to operate in this world, and you can too,

I’m going to do it Johnny, oh I’m going to do it!

I’m moving towards that thing that’s why I am here.

It’s OK John Joe, It’s OK

It’s ok John Jones, It’s OK,

It’s not the end of the world, it doesn’t matter if I’m alone.

I do believe in love Johnny, but I don’t know anything about it,

I know about depending on people,

I know about controlling people,

I know about using people until I’m tired of them,

That’s what I’ve always done, at least I what I used to do, not that I’ll do it anymore,

and I know about trying to get someone to love me as a challenge,

and then not wanting them when I have them,

but real love? no, I don’t know anything about that,

I still believe in love I just don’t know what it is, not really,

I’ve told people “I love you”, many times,

but I didn’t know what I was talking about, not really,

I thought I did at the time, it’s OK though Johnny, I’m glad I know this,

Remember what Marvin Gaye said; “Millions never will, they never will”

He was discussing a different subject at that point,

I’m lucky to know what I know,

and I’m sure loads of other people know exactly what love is,

but when it comes to me, I’m confused, needy, not thinking I need someone with love,

Of course If I was totally at peace, and I’m not, I would then be in a good position to love somebody, but If I’m depending on another person, then I’m in trouble and so are they.

It’s OK John Joe, It’s OK

It’s ok John Jones, It’s OK,

It’s not the end of the world, it dont care if I’m alone.

Old and unhappy, I’m unhappy living like this,

feeling ugly and tired,

Jaded inside, I’ve tried hard to make it better,

I worked hard to find some peace, but at best it’s only fleeting,

I can’t last much longer like this.

Is there a new life at the end of some journey?

I’d like to think so.

It’s OK John Joe, It’s OK

It’s ok John Jones, It’s OK,

It’s not the end of the world, cos I think I’m meant to be alone.

It’s OK John Joe, It’s OK

It’s ok John Jones, It’s OK,

It’s not the end of the world, cos I think I’m meant to be alone.

Oh yeah!!

I’m FREE!

Dexys She Got A Wiggle

Listen

She got a wiggle, she got a wiggle that makes me melt,

the problem is that I don’t know if she even likes me,

She’s such a woman, she’s such a woman, she’s all I need,

and I’m the one who loves her so, and now you know, and here I go,

I love her face and her soft brown hair,

and the poses she strikes when she’s standing there,

she is woman and I just want her,

and in her mind she says; (I’m mad about you)

She’s mad about me

She got a voice that’s soft and moist,

caresses my ears while heightening my senses,

sexy and warm and tender, I like it,

She got a wiggle, she got a wiggle that makes me melt,

but I’m afraid to let her know, that I’m the one who loves her so,

I love her and in my mind she said(I’m mad about you)

She’s mad about me.

but it’s only a dream

Got to make this real.

(Can’t live without you)

Do you know what I mean?

(I’m mad about you)

She’s mad about me

but it’s only a dream

She got a wiggle, she got a wiggle that makes me melt,

and I’m somehow gonna find a way to make her love me.

Dexys I’m Always Going To Love You

Oh baby I really love you, I really do now, Oh baby baby,

I got to say one thing (what’s that?)

I want you (Oh alright) and for all time (Oh I see!) Yes

Come over here my dear I’ve got something to say (What’s that?)

Do you know how much I care?

Do you know I’ll always be here,

I’m always going to love you

(OK)

When I look at you baby, when I touch you (yessss, what?) oh it feels so good,

Put your lips to my face (alright) Let your sweet breath warm my face (mmm)

I’m always going to love you (I love you too!)awwww!(I’m always going to love you)

We’re always going to…….

To be completely honest (yeah?)

I walked into this part without thinking (what do you mean?)

I wasn’t thinking (about what?) I’m so confused, I’m so confused

(You just said to me that you loved me?)

I know I did (You said you loved me!)

I know I did but I think I’m going around the bend now we must end…

(WHAT!!??)

I’m sorry darling I don’t think I can love you

(You’re not sorry!)

I’m really sorry I don’t know how to love you

(Kevin don’t talk to me I don’t even want to see you)

(Kevin don’t look at me I don’t even want to see you)

I understand I don’t know what’s the matter with me

Maybe I’m incapable of love? I dunno, no?

(Kevin don’t talk to me I don’t even want to see you)

(Kevin just Go Go GO!! I don’t even want to see you)

(It’s like as soon as you got me you didn’t want me, I was just your next thing, now your off on some other thing,)

No

(I was like a challenge you just wanted to see if you could get me to try and win me over)

No it wasn’t like that you were more than that, you meant an awful lot to me

I’m just mean

(You are!)

(Kevin don’t look at me I don’t even want to see you)

(Just Go……Just…..GO)

ok

Dexys Free

At first I didn’t know how I would be without somebody loving me,

Would I be lost inside?

Then from finding out that we could not fix me,

no-one can heal that part of me, I’m better off alone.

I can’t fucking wait to go outside and live my life,

unless I’m free and then I’m going to be the man I’m meant to be,

They say (If you don’t marry you will be lonely) Yeah

(All good men raise a family) yeah, that’s not what I see,

In truth some of them they don’t seem so happy,

they tolerate their misery, well that is not for me.

I can’t fucking wait to go outside and live my life,

unless I’m free and then I’m going to be the man I’m meant to be,

I’m free

Sometimes I think I should get some manogamy,

I try and fit into society, just be like everybody,

but i can never be the same as them,

I don’t want to be like them,

I’m a man who must be free.

I can’t fucking wait to go outside and live my life,

unless I’m free and then I’m going to be the man I’m meant to be,

I’m free

Why would I buy a book when I can join a library?

It doesn’t make any sense to me.
