BLANK GENERATION
(written by: Richard Hell)

I was saying “let me out of here” before I was even born
It’s such a gamble, a gamble when you get a face
It’s fascinating to observe what the mirror does, but
When I dine it’s for the wall that I set a place

I belong to the Blank Generation
I can take it or leave it each time
Yeah, I belong to the Generation
I can take it or leave it each time

Triangles were falling out the window as the doctor cursed
He was a cartoon, long forsaken by the public eye
The nurse adjusted her garters as she screamed her words
The doctor grabbed my throat and yelled “God’s consolation prize”

I belong to the Blank Generation
I can take it or leave it each time
Yeah, I belong to the Generation
I can take it or leave it each time

Oh, oh, oh, oh

To hold the TV to my lips, the air so packed with cash
Then carry it up flights of stairs and drop it in the vacant lot
To lose my train of thought and fall into your arms’ tracks
And watch beneath the eyelids every passing dot

I belong to the Blank Generation
I can take it or leave it each time
Yeah, I belong to the Generation
I can take it or leave it each time

I belong to the Blank Generation
I can take it or leave it each time
Yeah, I belong to the Generation
I can take it or leave it each time

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

 

JOHN, I’M ONLY DANCING
(written by: David Bowie)

Annie’s pretty neat
always eats her meat
Joey’s almost strong
Bet your life he’s putting us on
Oh lordy
You know I need some loving
Touch me, come on now, touch me

John, I’m only dancing
Don’t get me wrong
I’m only dancing
Don’t get me wrong
Why can’t I just go on
I’m only dancing

Shadow love was quick and keen
Life’s a well thumbed machine
Saw you watching from the stairs
You’re everyone that ever cared
Oh lordy
You know I need some loving
Touch me, come on now, touch me

John, I’m only dancing
Don’t get me wrong
I’m only dancing
Don’t get me wrong
Why can’t I just go on
I’m only dancing

John, I’m only dancing
Don’t get me wrong
I’m only dancing
Why can’t I just go on
Don’t get me wrong
I’m only dancing

I want somebody to dance with me
I want somebody to dance with me
I want somebody to dance with me
I want somebody to dance with me
I want somebody to dance with me
I want somebody to dance with me

 

HAPPY
(written by: Pharrel Williams)

It might seem crazy what I’m ‘bout to say
Sunshine she’s here, wecan take a break
So I’m like a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air, like I don’t care, baby, by the way

Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do

Here come bad news, talking this and that
I say, give me all you got, don’t hold it back
You know, I think I should probably warn ya, I’ll be just fine
No offense to you, don’t waste your time, here’s why…

Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do
