Track Name: In Elegant Situations
We wowed the trees in Vienna
We wowed the blackshirts of Linz
The truth hurts in Rome
We lie at home
In elegant situations
There's a hotel by the station
Five hours in the car
We stop by the lake

Never know how anybody finds it
Never know how anybody gets a start
Never ever let anybody find it
Never ever let anybody get a start

In elegant situations there's a hotel by the station
For us

She swears like a sailor
Pungent diction
I love her friction
She swears like a sailor
In bold typeface
I love that face
Track Name: The Sex-Singer
There's a fair roster of girls
There's a fair roster of girls trying hard
Girls try hard

Sex singer

I arrived early, in 1942
My wiggle is the pacemaker for
Millennium two

Sex singer
Track Name: Sexist Appeal (First Pass)
This is a sexist appeal
I tried everything else
But it just didn't work
Insert wolf-whistle here
This is a sexist appeal
Insert wolf-whistle here
Inappropriate comment here
I might even reach out and touch you
I might even, do it good
I might even reach out and touch you
I might, but I might not.
This is a sexist appeal
Track Name: Still Here
I'mstillhereI'mstillhereI'mstillhere
Track Name: Diminished Reruns
You tried to write a lovesong, about love
To demonstrate your concerns
Full of sexual imagery
The kind that's family friendly
But no-one is crying now
It's just a lovesong about a lovesong about a lovesong you heard
Track Name: Your Dreamboat Synonym Dies
really don't know why you cry girl
I was just a stand-in anyway
I tried it all
I tried it all
Karaoke for your heart
I can't feel it
Anymore
I know you danced with me girl, I appreciate the favour
But sometimes it's not enough
I can't feel it
Anymore

Sometimes baby, sometimes girl
Your dreamboat synonym dies

Romance is a crime
To be punished at all times
I really don't know why you
Why you cry
I was falling from the start

Sometimes baby, sometimes girl
Your dreamboat synonym dies

And it's true, I knew from the start
An Elvis impersonator is always short of the Mark

But my name is Mark, that much is true
And Elvis doing a Mark impersonation, well that would be short of something too
Oh, I'm a dreamboat synonym
Track Name: Love Record
I just think sometimes you don't understand
How it feels
To be a handsome man
So cold
So exposed

I just think you don't get it
That this face
Doesn't buy me credit
That this mouth
Doesn't buy me a house
Oh baby
Drive me to bed

Carburettor
I've got a girl named Carburettor
And when she sings, I let her

Oh Carburettor
I like your voice
Oh Carburettor
I don't have any choice
Carburettor

Sex-singer, sex singer
Ti amo, ti amo
Track Name: Arcade Shibboleth
I marked out my territories
Right or wrong
My missile command
And my pong

Shibboleth, this arcade
Shibboleth, in song
Shibboleth, this arcade
Shibboleth, it's gone

The machine is mine
I put my fifty pence down
I'm next in line
To be the king of this town

Say it with me baby
It's only a word
If you say it, say right
Say it just the way you heard

It's on the tip of my tongue
