Lyrics (Pongo Vs Corporate Vampires)

She’s an Ape (Not a Monkey)

You’re a chimpanzee and you’re stronger than me
But that ain’t what makes you special
Well you won my heart ‘cause you’re clever and smart
And you made a good impression
So I visit you at the Mountain Zoo
‘Cause I like to keep you company
But it riles me when the families
Go around telling their children

Look at the monkey
She’s an ape not a monkey
Can’t you see that she has not got a tail?
She’s an ape not a monkey

Well you was hand reared for your first few years
And it seems that had an impact
‘Cause they taught you games and your favourite one to play
Was round and round the garden like a teddy bear
You’re like a teddy bear and the people flock to see you
But it winds me up how they won’t shut up
And they’re saying to their children

Look at the monkey
She’s an ape not a monkey
Can’t you see that she has not got a tail?
She’s an ape not a monkey
If you want to see monkeys
Go and look at the monkeys
Can’t you see that she has not got a tail?
She’s an ape not a monkey

Instrumental

Look at the monkey
She’s an ape not a monkey
Can’t you see that she has not got a tail?
She’s an ape not a monkey
If you want to see monkeys
Go and look at the monkeys
Can’t you see that she has not got a tail?
Can’t you see that she has not got a tail?
Can’t you see that she has not got a tail?
She’s an ape not a monkey

Just Another Saturday

Rolled out of bed before
Delivery man was knocking at my door
After he went away
I jumped back in my bed and went to sleep again

It’s just another Saturday
So many hours left to hate
It’s just another Saturday

When I woke up at three
I pulled the curtains and what did I see out there?
It was a sunny day
But still it seemed my blues were here to stay

It’s just another Saturday
So many hours left to hate
It’s just another Saturday
It’s just another Saturday
Watching the hours waste away
It’s just another Saturday

It’s just another Saturday
Watching the hours waste away
It’s just another Saturday
It’s just another Saturday
Oh, how the hours slip away
It’s just another Saturday

The Web is a Bore

It seems like everyone is lazy nowadays
Sat on their computers inside
Like helpless flies they have got stuck inside a web and they are
Watching their lives flash past their eyes

But the web is a bore
The web is a bore
The web is a bore
The web is a bore

Don’t want to know how many people liked your profile picture
I’d rather see you in person
I couldn’t care if you got retweeted by someone famous
I’d rather hear it from you first

‘Cause the web is a bore
The web is a bore
The web is a bore
The web is a bore

Solo

And if you wait or even hesitate you might find you’re too late
To do the things you want, is that what you want?
That’s what I thought

Chorus x 2

Fallen Asleep On The Bus

Broken! Don’t you know this country’s broken?
Don‘t you know that it is all messed up
And that everybody’s stuffed?
Wake up! Every morning got to wake up
Got to work my fingers to the bone
Wonder where my money goes

I would like to live in a world where nobody has to wish they were rich
It’s just a dream, not reality
I would like to go to a place where nobody has to live with an itch
But it’s a dream, it could never be

I’ve fallen asleep on the bus, now I’ve woke up
I’ve fallen asleep on the bus
I’ve fallen asleep on the bus, now I’ve woke up
I’ve fallen asleep on the bus

Hopeless! Oh, the situations hopeless
Makes me want to turn to drink and curse
‘Cause I’m so bitter
Frozen! The economy is frozen
Watch the pension pot turn into dust
Now the country’s going bust

I would like to live in a world where nobody has to wish they were rich
It’s just a dream, not reality
I would like to go to a place where nobody has to live with an itch
But it’s a dream, it could never be

I’ve fallen asleep on the bus, now I’ve woke up
I’ve fallen asleep on the bus
I’ve fallen asleep on the bus, now I’ve woke up
I’ve fallen asleep on the bus, now I’ve woke up

Solo

I would like to live in a world where nobody has to wish they were rich
It’s just a dream, not reality
I would like to go to a place where nobody has to live with an itch
But it’s a dream, it could never be

I’ve fallen asleep on the bus, now I’ve woke up
I’ve fallen asleep on the bus
I’ve fallen asleep on the bus, now I’ve woke up
I’ve fallen asleep on the bus
I’ve fallen asleep on the bus, now I’ve woke up
I’ve fallen asleep on the bus
I’ve fallen asleep on the bus, now I’ve woke up
I’ve fallen asleep on the bus, now I’ve woke up

Dear Mr Cowell

Dear Mr Cowell, is your shit really made of gold
And does mediocrity prevail in your world?
Oh Mr Cowell, though my life is very hard
No I would not want to change my trousers for yours

Oh

Humiliated fools all mean cash to you
Provide you with the fuel you need to rule to roost
Is that all that really matters in your world?

Dear Mr Cowell, every dog must have its day
And eventually the public will show you its arse
Oh Mr Cowell, all those hit records you’ve made
Well they really aren’t that exceptionally great, they’re terrible

Oh

Humiliated fools all mean cash to you
Provide you with the fuel you need to rule to roost
Is that all that really matters in your world?

Instrumental

Oh

Humiliated fools all mean cash to you
Provide you with the fuel you need to rule to roost
Is that all that really matters in your world?
Is that all that really matters in your world?
Is that all that really matters in your world?
Is that all that really matters in your world?]

Hurt

I’ll take this hurt and make it alright
And shield you from the horrid daylight
I’ll break your fall
I’ll break your fall
This ache, this pain that’s growing inside
It comes, it goes, it cuts like a knife
Your skins so thin
Your skins so thin

Hurt, hurt
Hurt, hurt

When darkness comes delivers the night
Behind its cloak I will chose to hide
Till light pours in
Till light pours in

Hurt, hurt
Hurt, hurt

Instrumental

Hurt, hurt
Hurt, hurt

 

Tell It To Me Straight

You’re tired of sitting on the fence and asking yourself why
So take this opportunity, don’t let it pass you by
The sound advice I’m giving you is free it’s not for sale
You only get one go at this
Make sure you do it well

I’ll never sugar coat it, I’ll just give it to you plain
I hope you don’t give up on me despite the things I say
There ain’t no guarantee that I can help you in the end
But it sure beats doing nothing
When you’ve nothing and no friends
Hey!

Tell me straight – Won’t you tell it to me straight?
Tell me straight – Won’t you tell it to me straight?
Tell me straight – Won’t you tell it to me straight?

I’m tired or your complaining that the world has passed you by
They’re making you an offer so enjoy it for a while
The fact that you are listening is really pretty great
But you’ve only got one shot at this
You’ve got to make it pay
Hey!

Tell me straight – Won’t you tell it to me straight?
Tell me straight – Won’t you tell it to me straight?
Tell me straight – Won’t you tell it to me straight?
Tell me straight – Won’t you tell it to me straight?

Instrumental

Tell me straight – Won’t you tell it to me straight?

Hey!
Tell me straight – Won’t you tell it to me straight?
Tell me straight – Won’t you tell it to me straight?
Tell me straight – Won’t you tell it to me straight?
Tell me straight – Won’t you tell it to me straight?

The Song of the Apes (I Like the Apes)

I like gorillas, I like the chimpanzees
I like bonobos, I like orang-utans
I like the apes ‘cause I think that they are great
They go ooh-ah-ah, ooh-ah-ah, Ooh-ah-ah, ooh

The gorillas are so strong and they’re vegetarian
They beat their chest to show all their rivals whose best
And they live, wild and free as the king of the jungle

Chorus

The chimpanzees are so smart, playful, funny and sweet
They love to groom, they’re sociable animals who
Like to swing, swing through the trees and make it look easy

Chorus

Bonobos are very calm ‘cause females are all in charge
They don’t bear a grudge, they’ve perfected the art of free love
So they’re peaceful, caring and kind – it’s just how they are

Chorus

Orang-utans are my favourite
Their red hair is something to see
They spend their life in the tree tops
Raising their babies, teaching them all they need
Teaching them all they need
The song of the apes, the song of the apes
The song of the apes, the song of the apes

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

The song of the apes, the song of the apes
The song of the apes, the song of the apes

January Snow

Sitting in my living room watching the birds outside
Sometimes I wish I was like them, please don’t ask me why
They don’t have to do the things that we do to get by
Way up there on high, what a simple life

When I was a child I remember having dreams
Now I can’t remember them they won’t come back to me
Wake up in the morning from a dull and empty sleep
Shadows slowly creep from inside of me

Instrumental

One day I might find a place where I can feel at home
If I hold on to this faith and never let it go
Maybe I will realise something I didn’t know
Then I won’t feel cold, January snow
Then I won’t feel cold, January snow

The Anarchist Song

Oh my God! Is this what the world’s become
Can’t you hear my voice as I cry for revolution?
Are your dreams all dead? Are you getting drunk instead?
Log off that social network site, put up your jukes I’ll teach you to fight
Oh dear me! Once I thought that I was free
Then I realised that I’m just a slave to money
Now I spend my days praying for an early grave
That’s just a joke I like this life despite it all I’m feeling alright

Ooh! The systems fucked and we are screwed
Ooh! There’s nothing left to prove
Ooh! Don’t let them get the best of you
Ooh! We’ll live by our own rules

Oh sweet Lord! You’re a status obsessed bore
Don’t you realise there is more to life than money
And I’ll sing these songs till the revolution comes
But if it doesn’t happen soon I’ll sing to our impending doom

Ooh! The systems fucked and we are screwed
Ooh! There’s nothing left to prove
Ooh! Don’t let them get the best of you
Ooh! We’ll live just how we choose

Go!

Instrumental

I’m here to tell you do what you want and then we can be free
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot in fact it’s all we need
So don’t you ever give up the fight or be afraid to dream
My heart is pounding as I stand up here tonight to tell you what I’ve seen
An anarchist song

 

I Took a Job That Didn’t Pay

Don’t want to go to work today
Don’t want to go to work today
There’s nothing I can do
There’s nothing I can do
I took a job that didn’t pay

Ah-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh!
I start to feel depressed, I’m such a fool
Ah-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh!
I should have studied harder back in school

Don’t want to feel this way no more
Don’t want to feel this way no more
There’s something I should do
There’s something I should do
How can you tell me what I knew before?

Ah-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh!
I start to feel quite sick when I see you
Ah-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh!
This stress I do detest it through and through
Through and through

Instrumental

Ah-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh!
I start to feel depressed, I’m such a fool
Ah-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh!
I should have studied harder back in school
Ah-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh!
I start to feel quite sick when I see you
Ah-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh!
This stress I do detest it through and through

I took a job that didn’t pay
I took a job that didn’t pay
