With a special thanx to  Gary Pudney! 

Psycho Tendencies

It started when you left me all alone
I looked up, you had gone
Knees a tremblin', body weak
Sweat poured out, I could hardly speak

Up outside, moon is bright
I knew you'd cause a change in me tonight
Blood thirsty streak to please
Now I've got Psycho Tendencies

chorus:
I've got Psycho Tendencies
Psycho, Psycho Tendencies
There ain't a thing that could worry me
Now I got Psycho Tendencies

It started when you left me all alone
I looked up, you had gone
Knees a tremblin', body weak
Sweat poured out, I could hardly speak

Up outside, moon is bright
I knew you'd cause a change in me tonight
Blood thirsty streak to please
Now I've got Psycho Tendencies

chorus

I take a walk in the moonlit night
See me now, you'll see a site
Big black veins and blood shot eyes
See me now, blood pressurise

I take a walk down to the park
Look around, you'll see my mark
Bodies lying all about
All I can do is scream and shout

chorus


Just like a monster in a horror show
Nothing I can do, just gotta go
No Silver Bullet can stop me now
Or a cross with a heavenly vowe

Just blood and guts to turn me on
The human kindness in me has gone
See me coming you'd better flee
I've got Psycho Tendencies

Robbie Robot

Well I got a friend who's over six feet tall
And every six months he's got to have an overhaul
Robby is a robot a solid metal man
He gets his little pleasures out of an oil can
Then he goes down to the disco, dances through the night
Watch that robot dance you'll go "wow he's out of sight"

When that robot starts a dancing
The crown just moves aside
Well his eyes they start a flashing
And his head leans to one side
He can do the funky chicken or he can do the strut
But Robby is a real gone disco dancing robot

Now when Robby came home late just the other night
He told me he'd been dancing and got into a fight
I asked him how this trouble had landed on his plate
He said a gang of thugs had piled into his mate
I said "now hang on Robby, which mate do you mean"
He looked at me and said "the cigarette machine"

When that robot starts a dancing
The crown just moves aside
Well his eyes they start a flashing
And his head leans to one side
He can do the funky chicken or he can do the strut
But Robby is a real gone disco dancing robot

Well I got a friend who's over six feet tall
And every six months he's got to have an overhaul
Robby is a robot a solid metal man
He gets his little pleasures out of an oil can
Then he goes down to the disco, dances through the night
Watch that robot dance you'll go "wow he's out of sight"

When that robot starts a dancing
The crown just moves aside
Well his eyes they start a flashing
And his head leans to one side
He can do the funky chicken or he can do the strut
But Robby is a real gone disco dancing robot

 

Spasms

I see you standing there, on the corner of the street
Stockings half way up your thighs, stilettos on your feet
You stand beneath the streetlight with lipstick smeared on thick
Waiting for some man to come to pay for your small cheap trick

You give me Spasms both night and day
You give me Spasms every possible way
Someday I'll come and pay you money
Just to call you my sweet, sweet honey
And then them spasms will come your way
I said them spasms will come your way

You go to work at night time to do what you got to do
Laying down flat on your back to see your lifetime
If only you could know just what you're doing to me
Turning my life upside down I'm going to make you see

You give me Spasms both night and day
You give me Spasms every possible way
Someday I'll come and pay you money
Just to call you my sweet, sweet honey
And then them spasms will come your way
I said them spasms will come your way

One day I'm going to take you back to my sweet little pad
And I'll show you a real good time, be the best you ever had
You wont want any money for the love I'll give to you
I'll set you up for the rest of your life and your red light day's will be through

You give me Spasms both night and day
You give me Spasms every possible way
Someday I'll come and pay you money
Just to call you my sweet, sweet honey
And then them spasms will come your way
I said them spasms will come your way

 

Stop- Jump About

Well you see them on the high street and you see them on the bus
Pulling different faces while they're looking at us
You just can not avoid them so you give them a clout
And then they Stop, Jump About
Silly little people they just laugh behind our backs
Say they're disappointed, don't know how to relax
They call us punks and hooligans, they call you a lout
And then they Stop, Jump About

chorus:
They just don't understand us, don't even try
Trying to enjoy ourselves they just don't know why
Pulling different faces at the state of our clothes
Why don't they look what's happening right under their nose

The old woman in the high street just went into the bank
Somebody steals her handbag just by giving a yank
Then the long arm's on your doorstep and they look at you in doubt
And then they Stop, Jump About
The situations crazy when they're stuck with a choice
Someone who dresses like you, or a posh, posh voice
They say he's educated and that your just a lout
And then they Stop, Jump About

chorus

Well one day we'll rise above all this and leave ourselves behind
Looking at the youngsters and i think we will find
We´re saying what the others said when we had to shout
And then we'll Stop, Jump About
So if you're getting all the looks and its beginning to bore
Just don't pay no attention, just try to ignore
And say there will come a time, and that you know without a doubt
That they can Stop, Jump About

chorus

Who´s Crying Now ?

You told me that you'd love me and you'd never let me go
Well what the hell came over you I guess I'll never know
You were seeing someone behind my back and saying it's not true
I'll tell you just this one last time I always will love you

So tell me, who, who's crying now, so tell me, who, who's crying now

I started trying to live my life without you by my side
These feelings of despair, I knew I had to hide
I found myself another girl to share times good or bad
But how was I to know that you had plans to make me sad, so tell me, who.....

That shock I got that Sunday night when I came through the door
You threatened me with suicide if I didn't give you more
You said you didn't want that guy you only wanted me
I said just give me time to think we'll have to wait and see, so tell me, who...

Well now I look back on that time and I feel such a fool
How I let you walk right back acting oh so cool
'cos you said you wanted me but I just couldn't see
that someone got you pregnant and that someone wasn't me so tell me, who.

So now to sum the whole thing up with words from another song
"You've done too much, much too young ", and now its all gone wrong
Stuck with a guy you don't care for, the thing that'll make you mad
One day you will realise I'm the best you ever had, so tell me, who, who's crying now.
