Track Name: All-Knowing
I SAID "WHERE ARE YOU GOING"
YOU SAID I SEEM TO THINK THAT I'M ALL-KNOWING
SO I SHOULD KNOW
I DID MY BEST
I HAD A GUESS
THINKING IF I GOT IT RIGHT THAT YOU WOULD BE SO IMPRESSED

BUT BY THE TIME THAT I'D COME OUT WITH AN ANSWER
YOU WERE GONE
BUT THEN THE NEXT TIME THAT I SAW YOU
YOU CONFIRMED I WAS WRONG

YOU SAID I SEEM TO THINK THAT I'M ALL-KNOWING
SO I SHOULD KNOW

YOU SAID I SEEM TO THINK THAT I'M ALL-KNOWING
SO I SHOULD KNOW
Track Name: Serious Shopping
I'LL GO SHOPPING
TAKE MY MIND OFF MY THOUGHTS
GO TO THE HIGH STREET
TO FIND THAT THING THAT YOU'VE GOT THAT I WANT

AND IF THEY DON'T HAVE IT THAT'S FINE
I'LL JUST BUY IT ONLINE
SPEND EXTRA ON DELIVERY
SO IT WON'T TAKE A LONG TIME

WHEN I'VE GOT ONE
AND YOU'VE GOT ONE
WE CAN WEAR THEM DOWN THE HIGH STREET
AND WE'LL HAVE SOME RETAIL FUN

AND WHEN WE'RE DOWN THE HIGH STREET
WE'LL TAKE COMFORT IN THE FACT
THAT WE'RE NOT THE ONLY ONES WHO ARE IN LOVE WITH THE ACT
OF SHOPPING
SERIOUS SHOPPING

WHEN I'VE GOT ONE
AND YOU'VE GOT ONE

SERIOUS SHOPPING
Track Name: Big Time U.S.A.
I'M GOING TO AMERICA
BOUGHT IN TO THE AMERICAN DREAM
FOR SO LONG THIS WAS MY ONLY GOAL

TO FEEL MORE AMERICAN
SELECTED A BASEBALL TEAM
I HOPE THEY WIN THE SUPERBOWL

SORRY NOT TODAY
WITH ALL YOUR BRIT SHIT
PLEASE GO AWAY

SORRY NOT TODAY
BECAUSE TODAY IS THE DAY
I'M GOING BIG TIME U.S.A.

BEEN TOLD IT'S KINDA LIKE HERE
EXCEPT SO MUCH MORE AMERICAN
BRITANNIA'S BEEN GOOD TO ME
BUT I DON'T WANNA SEE HER AGAIN

IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING
THAT THEY DON'T HAVE A QUEEN
AND ALL EVERYDAY INTERACTIONS
PLAY OUT LIKE MOVIE SCENES
IN AMERICA

SORRY NOT TODAY
WITH ALL YOUR BRIT SHIT
PLEASE GO AWAY

SORRY NOT TODAY
BECAUSE TODAY IS THE DAY
I'M GOING BIG TIME U.S.A.
Track Name: Count Me Out
DON'T WANNA STAND UP AND BE COUNTED
UNLESS I'M STANDING UP TO BE COUNTED OUT
I'M ASKING: PLEASE DON'T EVEN TRY TO INCLUDE ME
I'D PREFER IT IF I FELT LEFT OUT

PLEASE COUNT ME OUT
I'M ASKING QUIETLY
DON'T MAKE ME SHOUT

PLEASE COUNT ME OUT
SO AS TO NOT LEAVE ANY DOUBT
I REITERATE: COUNT ME OUT

PLEASE COUNT ME OUT
I'M ASKING QUIETLY
DON'T MAKE ME SHOUT

PLEASE COUNT ME OUT
SO AS TO NOT LEAVE ANY DOUBT
I REITERATE: COUNT ME OUT
Track Name: Got One Of Those Faces
I ONLY FREQUENT DARKER PLACES
WHERE THEY CANNOT SEE MY FACE
BECAUSE I'VE GOT A LOOK
THAT'S KIND OF INSINCERE

AND IF YOU EVER SEE MY FACE
IN AN ILLUMINATED PLACE
WHEN I TALK YOU WON'T
BELIEVE A WORD YOU HEAR

I'VE JUST GOT ONE OF THOSE FACES
THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT IT
YOU ONLY MEET ME IN DARKENED PLACES
BUT YOU WOULDN'T IF YOU KNEW ABOUT IT
Track Name: Credit
THERE'S A RUMOUR GOING ROUND ABOUT YOU
I MUST ADMIT THAT I HELPED SPREAD IT
WE'RE SAYING YOU DIDN'T DO ANY OF THE WORK
AND YET YOU TOOK ALL THE CREDIT

WELL I DON'T KNOW IF IT HAPPENS TO BE TRUE
BUT I GET THE FEELING WHEN I'M TALKING TO YOU
THAT YOU'RE THE SORT TO TAKE CREDIT
WHERE CREDIT ISN'T DUE

WE'RE SAYING YOU DIDN'T DO ANY OF THE WORK
AND YET YOU TOOK ALL THE CREDIT
IT'S BEEN GOING ROUND A WHILE
I'M NOWHERE NEAR THE FIRST ONE TO HAVE SAID IT

YOU LOOK LIKE YOU DON'T LIKE WHAT I HAVE TO SAY
BUT TRUST ME YOU WOULD'VE HEARD IT ANYWAY
IT'S ALL THAT ANYONE'S BEEN TALKING ABOUT ALL DAY
Track Name: You've Been Promoted
HOW MUCH DOES IT TAKE TO MAINTAIN
THE LIFESTYLE YOU'RE ACCUSTOMED TO
WE'LL TAKE THAT AS A STARTING POINT
AND ADD ANOTHER MILLION OR TWO

YOU'VE BEEN PROMOTED
ALMOST RIGHT TO THE TOP
AND ONCE YOU'RE AT THIS LEVEL
DELEGATION NEVER STOPS

YOU'VE BEEN PROMOTED
A METEORIC RISE
YOU WEREN'T IN THE RUNNING
BUT WE'RE GIVING YOU THE PRIZE

YOU'RE NO LONGER JUST ONE OF THE GUYS
YOU'VE BEEN PROMOTED

WHILE OUTLINING THE PERKS OF THE JOB
WE FORGOT
WE'RE GIVING YOU A YACHT

WE'LL GET A DOCTOR TO WRITE YOU A NOTE
SO YOU CAN SPEND THE FIRST THREE MONTHS
OF THE JOB ON YOUR BOAT

YOU'VE BEEN PROMOTED
ALMOST RIGHT TO THE TOP
AND ONCE YOU'RE AT THIS LEVEL
DELEGATION NEVER STOPS

YOU'VE BEEN PROMOTED
A METEORIC RISE
YOU WEREN'T IN THE RUNNING
BUT WE'RE GIVING YOU THE PRIZE

YOU'RE NO LONGER JUST ONE OF THE GUYS
YOU'VE BEEN PROMOTED
Track Name: If You'd Listened To The Beatles
IF YOU'D LISTENED TO THE BEATLES
THEN YOU'D KNOW WHAT REAL MUSIC IS
IF YOU'D LISTENED TO THE BEATLES
THEN YOU'D KNOW WHAT REAL MUSIC IS

GEORGE, PAUL, RINGO AND JOHN HAD IT GOING ON
BUT BY 1970 THEY WERE GONE

SHE DOESN'T LIKE THE BEATLES
SO SHE DON'T KNOW WHAT REAL MUSIC IS
SHE DOESN'T LIKE THE BEATLES
SO SHE DON'T KNOW WHAT REAL MUSIC IS

GEORGE, PAUL, RINGO AND JOHN HAD IT GOING ON
AND IF YOU DISAGREE THEN YOU'RE JUST PLAIN WRONG

GEORGE, PAUL, RINGO AND JOHN HAD IT GOING ON
BUT BY 1970 THEY WERE GONE
