Go-Go's 2000's unreleased / non-album songs lyrics

 

KING OF CONFUSION


You're an elegant wreck
Glamorous and desperate
Like a broken neon sign
Volcanic valentine

I can't believe it's you that's changing me
I wanna be your true queen of anarchy


King Of Confusion
Reigning delusion
Throwing semi-precious stones
Wreaking havoc from your throne


Technicolor turbulence
So askewed and deviant
Nothing fits you like it should
Mixed-up misunderstood

I can't believe it's you that's changing me
I wanna be your true queen of anarchy


King Of Confusion
Reigning delusion
Throwing semi-precious stones
Wreaking havoc from your throne


The messiah of mess
I'm so glad you could care less
Run amok and nonchalant
Disorder dilettante

King Of Confusion
Reigning delusion
Throwing semi-precious stones
Wreaking havoc from your throne

King Of Confusion
Reigning delusion
Living in a fever dream
But with me you rule supreme

I THINK I NEED SLEEP



Your curse has claimed me
---

Obsessed, re, and depressed 
Can't we leave these feelings unexpressed

And I think I need sleep
Maybe then that I could think
If I could just sleep
But everytime that I do
I just dream
I dream about you
It's a nightmare coming true
Everytime that I sleep
I dream about you
I dream about you

You're the hammer that's falling
You are the dripping tapping time
Insane and deranged
No easy ways I could explain

I afford the bed
You're in my head
It feels so bad
I need peace
There's no release
I think I'm going mad

LITTLE HONDA


Go !
Go !
Go !
Go !

I'm gonna wake you up early
Cause I'm gonna take a ride with you
We're going down to the Honda shop
I'll tell you what we're gonna do
Put on a ragged sweatshirt
I'll take you anywhere you want me to

First gear (Honda Honda) it's alright (faster faster)
Second gear (little Honda Honda) I lean right (faster faster)
Third gear (Honda Honda) hang on tight (faster faster)
Faster it's alright

It's not a big motorcycle
Just a groovy little motorbike
It's more fun that a barrel of monkeys
That two wheel bike
We'll ride on out of the town
To any place I know that you like

First gear (Honda Honda) it's alright (faster faster)
Second gear (little Honda Honda) I lean right (faster faster)
Third gear (Honda Honda) hang on tight (faster faster)
Faster it's alright

It climbs the hills like a matchless
Cause my Honda's built really light
When I go into the turns
Lean with me and hang on tight
I better turn on the lights
So we can ride my Honda tonight

SURF CITY


Two boys for every girl
I bought a '30 Ford wagon and we call it a woody
(Surf City, here we come)
You know it's not very cherry, it's an oldie but a goody
(Surf City, here we come)
Well, it ain't got a back seat or a rear window
But it still gets me where I wanna go

And we' go to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
Go to Surf City, gonna have some fun
Go to Surf City, 'cos it's two to one
Go to Surf City, gonna have some fun
Two boys for every girl

Oh you know they never roll the streets up 'cause there's always somethin' goin'
(Surf City, here we come)
You know they're either out surfin' or they got a party gowin'
(Surf City, here we come)
Well, with two swingin' honeys for every guy
And all you gotta do is just wink your eye

And we' go to Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
Go to Surf City, gonna have some fun
Go to Surf City, 'cos it's two to one
Go to Surf City, gonna have some fun
Two boys for every girl

And if my woody breaks down somewhere on the surf route
(Surf City, here we come)
I'll strap my board to my back and hitch a ride in my wetsuit
(Surf City, here we come)
And when I get to Surf City I'll be shootin' the curl
And checkin' out the parties for a surfer girl

LET’S GET TOGETHER


Let's get together, yeah yeah yeah
Why don't you and I combine ?
Let's get together, what do you say ?
We can have a swinging time
We'd be a crazy team
Why don't we make a scene ? Together
Together

Let's get together, yeah yeah yeah
Think of all that we could share
Let's get together, everyday
Every way and everywhere
And though we haven't got a lot
We could be sharing all we've got
Together

Oh ! I really think you're swell.
Uh huh ! You really ring my bell.
Oo wee ! And if you stick with me
Nothing could be greater, say hey alligator

We'd be a crazy team
Why don't we make a scene ? Together

Oh ! Uh huh !

Let's get together, yeah yeah yeah
Two is twice as nice as one
Let's get together, right away
We'll be having twice the fun
And you can always count on me
A gruesome twosome we will be
We’ll be as groovy as can be
Together, yeah yeah
Together, yeah yeah
Let’s get together, yeah yeah
Let’s get together, yeah yeah

DO IT OVER


What if you took a path around again
Make it happen
Better than before
Oooh, do it over

Knowing what I know today
(Do it over)
Now on my way
I’m living again through yesterday
How much things are gonna change
(Do it over)

X-OFFENDER


You read me my rights and then you said "Let's go" and nothing more
I thought of my nights, and how they were
They were filled with...

I know you wouldn't go
You'd watch my heart burst then you'd step in
I had to know so I asked, you just had to laugh

We sat in the night with my hands cuffed at my side
I look at the night and your style...
I wanted nothing more

I know you wouldn't go
You'd watch my heart burst then you'd step in
I had to know so I asked, you just had to laugh

Walking the line, you were a marksman
Told me that law, like wine, is ageless
Public defender...
You had to admit you wanted the love of a sex offender

I know you wouldn't go
You'd watch my heart burst then you'd step in
I had to know so I asked, you just had to laugh

My vision in blue, I call you from inside my cell
And in the trial, you were there with your badge and rubber boots
I think all the time how I'm going to perpetrate this love with you
And when I get out, there's no doubt I'll be sex offensive to you

SHEENA IS A PUNK ROCKER


Well the kids are all hopped up and ready to go
They're ready to go now
They’re just gonna get to the discotheque a go go
But she just cannot wait
Is she really pretty say
That New York City really has it all
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Sheena is a punk rocker
Sheena is a punk rocker
Sheena is a punk rocker now
Sheena is a punk rocker
Sheena is a punk rocker
Sheena is a punk rocker now
She's a punk punk, punk rocker
Punk punk, a punk rocker
Punk punk, a punk rocker
Punk punk, a punk rocker

Well the kids are all hopped up and ready to go
They're ready to go now
They’re just gonna get to the discotheque a go go
But now she cannot wait
Is she really pretty say
That New York City really has it all
Oh yeah, oh yeah


FLASHDANCE MEDLEY
 
First, when there's nothing but a slow burning dream
That your fear seems to hide deep inside your mind
All alone I have cried silent tears full of pride
In a world made of steel, made of stone
Oh I hear the music, close my eyes, feel the rhythm
Wrap around, it takes hold of my heart

What a feeling, keep believin'
I can have it all, now I'm dancin' for my life
Take your passion, make it happen
Pictures come alive, now I’m dancin’ for my life

Well I hear the music, close my eyes, feel the rhythm
In a flash it takes hold of my heart
Oh I have cried silent tears full of pride
In a world made of steel, made of stone

What a feeling, keep believin'
Pictures come alive, now I’m dancin’ for my life
Take your passion, make it happen
Pictures come alive, now I’m dancin’ for my life


What a feeling, what a feeling

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
(x4)

What a feeling (I am music now), keep believin' (I am rhythm now)
Pictures come alive, now I'm dancin' for my life
Take your passion (I am music now), make it happen (I am rhythm now)
Pictures come alive, now I'm dancin' for my life

What a feeling, what a feeling

COOL PLACES


I wanna go to cool places with you
I wanna go to cool places tonite
I wanna go where nobody's a fool
And no one says uh, "hey girl, need a light ?"
I wanna move like this and that
A minimum of chit chat
I never wanna cool down, cool down, cool, cool, cool
Cool places tonite

I wanna tell you, you're lookin' real good
They let us in so I'm feelin' all right
I like to go where sometimes they refuse
Yeah, I remember last Saturday nite
But I'm feeling cooler now
And they could tell we're cooler now
It's obvious we're cooler now, cooler now, cool, cool, cool
Cool places tonite

Cooler now, cooler now, cooler now, cooler now

I wanna go, I wanna go, I wanna go, I wanna go
I wanna go, I wanna go, I wanna go, I wanna go
I wanna go (cool cool cool places) I wanna go, I wanna go, I wanna go
I wanna go (cool cool cool places) I wanna go, I wanna go, I wanna go
I wanna go

I wanna go to cool places tonite
I wanna go to cool places with you
And after that we'll slip out for a bite
A coffee shop, a toast, coffee and juice
And then we'll sleep 'til 5 P.M.
And start it up all over again
I never wanna cool down, cool down, cool, cool, cool

AUTOMATIC / ATOMIC


Quiet now
Still of night
Inside fire burning bright

Right moment
Lay down
Oh, still no sound

It's all automatic
No thought
Automatic

Golden hair
Skin glisten
Beating heart but don't listen

Angles sharp
Crash together
Time and consciousness sever

Mind in automatic
Time stop
Automatic

Quiet now
Still of night
Inside fire burning bright

Right moment
Lay down
Oh, still no sound

It's all automatic
Time stop
Automatic

Your hair is beautiful
Tonight, tonight
Your hair is beautiful
Tonight, tonight

Atomic (x5)

Your hair is beautiful
Tonight, tonight


THE WHOLE WORLD LOST ITS HEAD 2007
 
Fish can only grow on farms
The ozone up and went
The village idiot became
The US President
Fashion is for skeletons
Rehad is for kicks
Jesus is a preacher
With a tattoed 666

I read it in the paper
I see it on my TV

Has the whole world lost it's head
(Is it just me ?)
Has the whole world lost it's head
(Is it just me ?)
Has the whole world lost it's head


Kids are burning pirate discs
And popping Ritalin
American Idol tops the charts
Cuz karaoke’s in
Zsa Zsa’s prince thinks he’s a daddy
Britney’s come undone
And the billionaire Olson twins
Dress like (--- ?)

I read it in the paper
I see it on my TV

Has the whole world lost it's head
(Is it just me ?)
Has the whole world lost it's head
(Is it just me ?)
Has the whole world lost it's head


I read it in the paper
I see it on my TV

Has the whole world lost it's head
(Is it just me ?)
Has the whole world lost it's head
(Is it just me ?)
Has the whole world lost it's head
(Is it just me ?)
Has the whole world lost it's head
Lost it's head
Lost it's head
Lost it's head

DANCING WITH MYSELF


On the floor of Tokyo
Or down in London town to go go
With the record selection
And the mirror's reflection
I'm dancing with myself

When there's no-one else in sight
In the crowded lonely night
Well I wait so long
For my love vibration
And I'm dancing with myself

(Oh oh oh) Dancing with myself
(Oh oh oh) Dancing with myself
Well there's nothing to lose
And there's nothing to prove
I'll be dancing with myself oh oh oh


If I looked all over the world
And there's every type of girl
But your empty eyes
Seem to pass me by
Leave me dancing with myself

So let's sink another drink
'Cause it'll give me time to think
If I had the chance
I'd ask the world to dance
And I'll be dancing with myself

(Oh oh oh) Dancing with myself
(Oh oh oh) Dancing with myself
Well there's nothing to lose
And there's nothing to prove
I'll be dancing with myself oh oh oh


Oh oh oh (x3)

Well I looked all over the world
And there's every type of girl
But your empty eyes
Seem to pass me by
Leave me dancing with myself

So let's sink another drink
'Cause it'll give me time to think
If I had the chance
I'd ask the world to dance
If I had the chance
I'd ask the world to dance
If I had the chance
I'd ask the world to dance

Oh oh oh (x4)

(Oh oh oh) Dancing with myself (x4)

MOTHER’S LITTLE HELPER


What a drag it is getting old

"Kids are different today"
I hear every mother say
Mother needs something today to calm her down
And though she's not really ill
There's a little yellow pill
She goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day

"Things are different today"
I hear every mother say
Cooking fresh food for a husband's just a drag
So she buys an instant cake and she burns her frozen steak
She goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And two help her on her way, get her through her busy day

Doctor please
Some more of these
Outside the door
She took four more
What a drag it is getting old

"Men just aren't the same today"
I hear every mother say
They just don't appreciate that you get tired
They're so hard to satisfy
You can tranquillize your mind
You go running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And to help you through the night, help to minimize your plight

"Life's just much too hard today,"
I hear every mother say
The pursuit of happiness just seems a bore
And if you take more of those, you will get an overdose
No more running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
They just helped you on your way, through your busy dying day

Doctor please
Some more of these
Outside the door
She took four more
What a drag it is getting old
