    I've been contemplating suicide,
    but it really doesn't suit my style,
    so I think I'll just act bored instead
    And Contain the blood I would've shed?

    She makes me feel so ill at ease
    my heart is really on it's knees
    but I keep a poker face so well
    that even mother couldn't tell

    But my baby's so vain
    she is almost a mirror
    and the sound of her name
    sends a permanent shiver down my
    SPINE

    I keep her photograph against my heart
    for in my life she plays a starring part
    all alcohol and cigarettes
    there is no room for cheap regrets

    But my baby's so vain
    she is almost a mirror
    and the sound of her name
    sends a permanent shiver down my
    SPINE

    She makes me feel so ugly
    my heart is really on it's knees
    but I keep a poker face so well
    that even mother couldn't tell

    But my baby's so vain
    she is almost a mirror
    and the sound of her name
    sends a perennial shiver down my
    SPIII-YI-YIIII-YI-YIIII-YI-YIYIYI-INE

    The Birthday Party - Zoo-Music Girl (Repulsion) - YouTube

    Zoo-music girl, zoo-music girl
    Our life together is a hollow tooth,
    spit out the shells, spit out the shells,
    You know exactly what I'm talking about
    Don't drag the orchestra into this thing
    Rattle those sticks, rattle those sticks
    The sound is beautiful, its perfect!
    The sound of her young legs in stockings
    the rhythem of her walk, it's beautiful
    Just let it twist, let it break
    let it buckle, let it bend
    I wnat the noise of my zoo music girl
    zoo-music girl zoo-music girl
    My body is a monster driven insane
    my heart is a fish toasted by flames I kiss the hem of her skirt
    We spend our lives in a box full of dirt
    I murder her dress and she loves it
    If there is one thing I desire in the world is to make love to my zoo-muic girl
    zoo-music girl, zoo-music girl
    The sound is beautiful! It's perfect!
    I call out her name in the night
    Zoo-music girl zoo-music girl
    I call her by her family name
    zoo-music girl zoo-musivc girl
    Oh God! Please let me die beneath her fists
    Zoo-Music Girl Zoo-music girl

    I, cigarette fingers
    puff and poke
    puff and poking the smoke
    touches the ground

    You, your lungs and your wrists
    they throb like trains
    choo choo choo
    it's a prison of sound

    of sound

    She, by my chinny chin chin [buying chilly chin-chin?]
    Eee-oh Eee-oh
    Like a zippo smokes the way
    hope, around

    You, your lungs and your wrists
    they throb like trains
    choo choo choo
    It's a prison of sound

    a prison of sound

    She, by the hair of my chinny chin chin
    Eee-oh Eee-oh Eee-oh Eee-oh
    Like a zippo smokes the way
    hope, around

    You, your lungs and your wrists
    they throb like trains
    choo choo choo
    it's a prison of sound

    I poke around...

    The Birthday Party...Mutiny in Heaven.wmv - YouTube

    Well ah jumpt! and fled this fucken heap on doctored wings
    Mah flailin pinions, with splints and rags and crutches!
    (Damn things nearly hardly flap)
    Canker upon canker upon one million tiny punctures
    That look like...
    Long thin red ribbons draped across the arms of a lil mortal girl
    (Like a ground -plan of Hell)
    Curse these smartin strings! These fucken ruptures!
    Enough! Enough is enough!
    (If this is Heaven ah'm bailin out)
    If this is Heaven ah'm bailin out
    Ah caint tolerate this ol tin-tub
    So fulla trash and rats! Felt one crawl across mah soul
    For a seckon there, as thought as wassa back down in the ghetto!
    (Rats in Paradise! Rats in Paradise!)
    Ah'm bailin out! There's a mutiny in Heaven!

    Ah wassa born...
    And Lord shakin, even then was dumpt into some icy font,
    like some great stinky unclean!
    From slum-chuch to slum-church, ah spilt mah heart
    To some fat cunt behind a screen...

    Evil poppin eye presst up to the opening
    He'd slide shut the lil perforated hatch... at night mah body
    blusht
    To the whistle of the birch
    With a lil practice ah soon learnt to use in on mahself
    Punishment?! Reward! Punishment?! Reward!
    Well, ah tied on... percht on mah bed ah was...
    sticken a needle in mah arm...

    Ah tied off! Fucken wings burst out mah back
    (Like ah was cuttin teeth!)
    Ah took off!
    (Rats in Paradise! Rats in Paradise!)
    There's a mutiny in Heaven!

    Oh Lord, ah git down on mah knees
    (Ah git down on mah knees and start to pray)

    Wrapped in mah mongrel wings, ah nearly freeze
    In the howlin wind and drivin rain
    (All the trash blowin round 'n' round)
    >From slum-heaven into town
    Ah take mah tiny pain and rollin back mah sleeve
    (Roll anna roll anna roll anna roll)
    Ah yank the drip outa mah vein! UTOPIATE! Ah'm bailin out!
    UTOPIATE!
    If this is Heaven ah'm bailin out!
    Mah threadbare soul teems with vermin and louse
    Thoughts come like a plague to the head... in God's house!
    Mutiny in Heaven!
    (Ars infectio forco Dio)
    To the plank!
    (Rats in Paradise! Rats in Paradise!)
    Ah'm bailin out!
    (Hail Hypuss Dermio Vita Rex!)
    Hole inna ghetto! Hole inna ghetto!
    (Scabio Murem per Sanctum... Dio, Dio, Dio)

    Ah wanna tell ya 'bout a girl
    You know, she lives in room 29
    Why... Why... that's the one right up top a mine
    Ah start to cry, Ah start to cry

    O Ah hear her walkin'
    Walkin' barefoot cross the floor-boards
    All thru this lonesome night
    Ah hear her crying too.
    Hot-tears come splashin on down
    Leaking thru the cracks,
    Down upon my face, Ah catch'em in my mouth!
    Ah catch'em in my mouth!
    Ah catch'em in my mouth!
    Walk'n'cry Walk'n'cry-y!

    From her to eternity!
    From her to eternity!
    From her to eternity!

    Ah read her diary on her sheets
    Scrutinizin' every lil bit of dirt
    Tore out a page'n'stufft it inside my shirt
    Fled outa the window,
    And shinning it down the vine
    Outa her night-mare, and back into mine
    Mine! O Mine!

    From her to eternity!
    From her to eternity!
    From her to eternity!
    Cry! Cry! CRY!

    She's wearing them bloo-stockens, ah bet!
    and standin' like this with my ear to the ceiling
    Listen, Ah know it must sound absurd
    but Ah can hear the most melancholy sound
    Ah ever heard!
    Walk'n'cry! Kneel'n'cry-y!

    From her to eternity!
    From her to eternity!

    O tell me why? O tell me why?
    Oh Why? Why? Why?
    O tell me why and don't tell me a lie!
    Why the ceiling still shakes? Shakes! Shakes! Shakes!
    Why the fixtures turn to serpents and snakes?

    This desire to possess her is a wound
    and its naggin at me like a shrew
    but, Ah know, that to possess her
    Is, therefore, not to desire her.

    O o o then ya know, that lil girl would just have to go!
    Go! Go-o-o! From her to eternity!

    From her to eternity! [Repeat]

    Looka yonder! Looka yonder!
    Looka yonder! A big black cloud come!
    A big black cloud come!
    O comes to Tupelo. Comes to Tupelo

    Yonder on the horizon
    Yonder on the horizon
    Stopped at the mighty river
    Stopped at the mighty river and
    Sucked the damn thing dry
    Tupelo-o-o, O Tupelo
    In a valley hides a town called Tupelo

    Distant thunder rumble. Distant thunder rumble
    Rumble hungry like the Beast
    The Beast it cometh, cometh down
    The Beast it cometh, cometh down
    Wo wo wo-o-o
    Tupelo bound. Tupelo-o-o. Yeah Tupelo
    The Beast it cometh, Tupelo bound

    Why the hen won't lay no egg
    Can't get that cock to crow
    The nag is spooked and crazy
    O God help Tupelo! O God help Tupelo!
    O God help Tupelo! O God help Tupelo!

    Ya can say these streets are rivers
    Ya can call these rivers streets
    Ya can tell ya self ya dreaming buddy
    But no sleep runs this deep
    No! No sleep runs this deep
    No sleep runs this deep
    Women at their windows
    Rain crashing on the pane
    Writing in the frost
    Tupelos' shame. Tupelo's shame
    O God help Tupelo! O God help Tupelo!

    O go to sleep lil children
    The sandmans on his way
    O go to sleep lil children
    The sandmans in his way
    But the lil children know
    They listen to the beating of their blood
    listen to the beating of their blood
    listen to the beating of their blood
    listen to the beating of their blood
    They listen to the beating of their blood
    The sandman's mud!
    The sandman's mud!
    And the black rain come down
    the black rain come down
    the black rain come down
    Water water everywhere
    Where no bird can fly no fish can swim
    Where no bird can fly no fish can swim
    No fish can swim
    Until The King is born!
    Until The King is born!
    In Tupelo! Tupelo-o-o!
    Til The King is born in Tupelo!

    In a clap-board shack with a roof of tin
    Where the rain came down and leaked within
    A young mother frozen on a concrete floor
    With a bottle and a box and a cradle of straw
    Tupelo-o-o! O Tupelo!
    With a bottle and a box and a cradle of straw

    Well Saturday gives what Sunday steals
    And a child is born on his brothers heels
    Come Sunday morn the first-born dead
    In a shoebox tied with a ribbon of red
    Tupelo-o-o! Hey Tupelo!
    In a shoebox buried with a ribbon of red

    O ma-ma rock you lil' one slow
    O ma-ma rock your baby
    O ma-ma rock your lil' one slow
    O God help Tupelo! O God help Tupelo!
    Mama rock your lil' one slow
    The lil one will walk on Tupelo
    The lil one will walk on Tupelo
    Black rain come down, Black rain come down
    Tupelo-o-o! Yeah Tupelo!
    And carry the burden of Tupelo
    Tupelo-o-o! O Tupelo! Yeah!
    The King will walk on Tupelo!
    Tupelo-o-o! O Tupelo!
    He carried the burden outa Tupelo!
    Tupelo-o-o! Hey Tupelo! [Repeat]
    You will reap just what you sow

    Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Hard on For Love - YouTube

    It is for she that the cherry bleeds
    That the moon is steeped in mild nad blood
    That I steal like a robber
    From her altar of love
    O money lender! O clover gender!
    I am the fiend hid in her skirts
    And it's as hot as hell in here
    Coming at her as I am from above
    Hard on for love hard on for love
    Hard on for love hard on for love

    Well, I swear I seen that girl before
    Like she walked straight outa the book of Leveticus
    But they can stone me with stones I don't care

    Just as long as I can get to kiss
    Those gypsy lips! Gypsy lips!
    My aim is to hit this Miss
    And I'm moving in (I'm moving in)
    Coming at her like Lazarus from above
    Hard on for love hard on for love
    Hard on for love hard on for love

    The Lord is my shepard I shall not want
    The Lord is my shepard I shall not want
    But he ledeth me like a lamb to the lips
    Of the mouth of the valley of the whadow of death
    I am his rod and his staff
    I am his sceptre and shaft
    And she is heaven and hell
    At whose gates I ain't been delivered
    I'm gunna give the gates a shove
    Hard on for love hard on for love
    Hard on for love hard on for love

    And her breasts rise and fall
    Breast rise and fall
    Breast rise and fall
    Breast rise and fall
    And just when I'm about to get my hands on her
    Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
    Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
    Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
    You are beautiful! O dove!
    Hard on for love hard on for love
    Hard on for love hard on for love

    Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
    Just when I'm about to get my hands on her

    Her breasts rise and fall
    Her breasts rise and fall

    Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
    Just when I'm about to get my hands on her

    Hard on for love hard on for love
    Hard on for love hard on for love
