Half Man Half Biscuit
(intro A D E (x9)) A D E They come from underneath the stairs A D E Into my room but no-one cares A D E They're on the bus and on the train A D E They're knocking on my window pane. A D E Oh mother telephone the nurse A D E Can't you see it's getting worse A D E I close my eyes yet still it seems A D E Everybody in my dreams, A D E A D E, A D E (x5) Gubba look-A-likes Gubba look-A-likes. A D E I wake up screaming in the hall A D E I didn't mean to wake at all A D E I run and lock the bathroom door A D E Turn on the taps and out they pour. A D E Through all the villages and towns A D E A thousand sandy coloured clowns A D E I try and escape down private drives A D E And then I reach the Reader's Wives. A D E A D E,(instr A D E (x9)) Gubba look-A-likes Gubba look-A-likes. A D E In order to fling off this curse, I spend all day drinking in A D E Diverse taverns, with smarmy acrobats and balding senators. A D E But after a while they too adopt the likeness and begin to breed like A D E, A D E town pigs. A D E As a drunken lump I fall into a state of blissful unconsciousness A D E But the moment is fleeting and I awake once more in despair A D E A D E And in my final agonies believe myself lost. A D E A D E Gubba look-A-likes Gubba look-A-likes. A D E In every film and every play, on every public right of way A D E On every flag I see unfurled, on all the grounds in all the world A D E The one-armed bandits in the bar, in the back of every car A D E And even on my dying day they'll refuse to go away A D E When I walk towards the light something somewhere won't be right A D E And what was once my Uncle Keith says there'll never be relief A D E And we'll go on and on and on and on and on. A D E A D E, A D E (to fade) Gubba look-A-likes Gubba look-A-likes.
