Get ready, its the boy about town If I liked you before, i'm so over you now Once broken its harder to mend and as soon as you loose it, it's not found again If patients is a virtue, and some say its true I've just grown tired of all the waiting for you   Now you know how it is, the waiting feels like years Time after time, coz I feel like rocking instead of tears     Half-past-none, you're just a little late There's always the right time, there's always delayed Half-past-none, you see that we're through Coz time waits for no man, especially you Don't say I’m sorry. It's just more of the same Is it ever your fault or shall I just take the blame Just leave now, because the battle is won I favour my company its double the fun   Oh oh, sun shines on the new dawn One by one, get set for the calm before the storm Half-past-none, you're just a little late There's always the right time, there's always delayed Half-past-none, you see that we're through Coz time waits for no man, especially you   Never be lonely again, never be lonely get down down down down.. Now you know how it is, the waiting feels like years Time after time coz I feel like rocking instead of tears     Half-past-none, you're just a little late There's always the right time there's always delayed Half-past-none, you see that we're through Coz time waits for no man, especially you Half Past None, It's just a twist of fate There's always the right time, there always too late

Sex and drugs and bass lines, you really don’t wanna waste mine So take a pinch of waistline, and the song comes back to you Get-up on and rave now, you're coming on all lame now Careful of what you say now, when the fat boys bust a move. Down shake it down, shake it all around, you’re gone with the Heavenly Bop. Shake it down, shake it down, shake it all around, you’re gone with the Heavenly Bop Streets with disco caviar. A face like that will go far The action call to jive bomb. You'll find us on the roof A dot comes on your radar, sure you don’t wanna lay down It don’t take much to weigh now, so here’s what we're gonna do The mercury is rising, oh but it’s so surprising You're just now realizing, The Fontanas are good for you The crystal lights are shining, the volume keeps on climbing We don't need reminding, we know just what to do.. Down shake it down, shake it all around, you’re gone with the Heavenly Bop. Shake it down, shake it down, shake it all around, you’re gone with the Heavenly Bop

Oh dontcha gimme the hump It don't take a miracle to get the sum So, oh dontcha gimme the hump, it's no common number with me Last call for the pick up line That’s enough already of the me, all mine It don't take a miracle to toe the line, it's no common number with me The look in your eyes is all i see The look in your eyes is ecstasy All that I need, is sat here with me It’s getting harder and harder and harder to breath Oh oh, last call for the pick up line Oh oh, it's no common number with me

Seven days, on the run, heat burns, chasing shadows in the desert sun Breaking free out of town, a local hero but the marshal wants to shut him down Man of the people, hero of his time Making all the difference, his life was paid in kind Tried to make it all the better, tried to make it all stand up for you Jose, never made it to his old age But he lives forever most folks say But he did it for the people of the coal face Told the judge no way, never got a court case Yer, and all the ladies miss him. Men tell his tale to their children They say you can see his face through a sandstorm The legend of Jose Correira lives on Jose Correira, Jose Correira A young gun its understood Take from the greedy and it turns into a form of good With his life he walked the line, They left him hanging but compassion was his only crime Man of the people, hero of his time Making all the difference, his life was paid in kind Tried to make it all the better, tried to make it all stand up for you Jose Correira, Jose Correira

Coz you know, i'll never go that road again Coz you know, i'll never call those times a friend No roads open, here I go again Do right ever, never been the same If you go you’ll feel the chills run down your spine And you'll feel the rhythm, as the bass drum kicks real fine Lately things aren't feeling the same Do right lately, seems i’m gone again Easy to seduce you, hypno-romance The Skank is gonna take you make you wanna dance No hocus-pocus, they’re drawing your focus You’ll leave it all behind

You gotta shizzle on your dizzle You’re just going through a different phase Why don’t you give it up a little? Some things just rearrange If you move in to the middle You don’t give none away Sit back on that, relax on track, coz I got something to say Last call for the pick up line That’s enough already of the me-all-mine In life some things just pass and fade away We’re only flesh and blood, but I still feel the best of love Lets try before it all gets washed away For What It’s worth, I never promised you a sanctuary For What It’s worth, I never wanted this you see For What It’s worth, oh do we have to take it down, down, down Oh Lord, that’s the last you’ll see of me Why don’t you give it up a little coz you’re acting like a p.i.g Just breaking up the riddle, it don’t make sense to me Won’t you move in to the middle? You don’t get none for free Sit back on that relax on track, some things are meant to be Last call for the pick up line That’s enough already of the me-all-mine In life some things just pass and fade away We’re only flesh and blood, but I still feel the best of love Lets try before it all gets washed away For What It’s worth, I never promised you a sanctuary For What It’s worth, I never wanted this you see For What It’s worth, oh do we have to take it down, down, down Oh Lord, that’s the last you’ll see of me
