about

STAR featuring Jah Wobble. A song about touring.

lyrics

Up and down the country in the back of a white van
Me and the band, poppers and traffic jams
More gigs build a profile, more gigs and vans
Bigger better bands, poppers and traffic jams
Working up the food chain to fully fledged carnivore
What do we all want 1 2 3 4
Leeds Glasgow Wah Wah Hut Duchess Duke and the Charlottes shut
Fea and firkin Southport Beach Zap Club Tunnel Club what no sleep
Oh dear Brighton Peer put your T shirts over here
5 minutes no soundcheck shut my eyes I'll hit the deck
Sleep is for suckers Sleep is for suckers Sleep is for suckers


SAME OLD STAGE...THEY LAY ME DOWN
BOUND MY WRIST SO TIGHTLY
SEDUCED ME SO CLUMSILY
I NEED TO MOVE ON

STAR...YOU KNOW HOW GORGEOUS YOU ARE
YOU LOST YOUR MIND IN MY CAR
STAR... STAR IT’S ALL TOO MUCH
MORE MONEY, MORE SEX
LOOK WHAT THEY DONE THEY SUPERSIZED THEY SUPERSIZED

THEY SUCKED YOU TILL YOU WERE DRY
OPEN UP UN ZIP YOUR SKIN
NOW YOU DONT FEEL ANYTHING
YOU NEED TO MOVE ON

We met the grateful dead fan club 'The Deadheads'
Never except food or drink off them
They had potions and brews of all hues
All I remember was a staircase going up and up and round and round
We ended up on the roof of The Columbia Hotel
With a wizard with Stars in his beard
And he told me that when you die
You re enact your happiest or saddest moment
overe and over for eternity

THE BIG TIME. WE MADE A SPLASH
OVER THIS TIME LIKE A RASH
BUT NOW THEY ALL WANT THEIR CASH BACK
YOU NEED TO MOVE ON

STAR YOU KNOW HOW GORGEOUS YOU ARE
YOU LOST YOUR MIND IN MY MOTHER FUCKING CAR
STAR YOU NEED TO MOVE ON

WE WANT WE WANT MORE
WE WANT WE WANT MORE
WE WANT WE WANT MORE
MORE MONEY, MORE SEX, MORE LOVE

But the cracks are beginning to show, cocaine on our cornflakes
the entourage growing, the guitarist gone mental
Spinal Tap moments Hello Shrewsbury Rock and Roll


STAR SUPERSIZE, STAR SUPERSIZE
