LYRICS: DURAN DURAN – THANK YOU

 

1995 THANK YOU

White Lines

Freeze! Rock!
Rang-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang
Rang-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang
Rang-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang
Rang-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang
Rang-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang
Rang-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang
Aaaah…

White! Ooh-white! White! Ooh-white! White! Ooh-white! White! Ooh-white!
(White Lines) Vision dreams of passion
(Going through my mind) And all the while I think of you
(Pipeline) A very strange reaction
(Yours to unwind) The more I see, the more I do

Something of a phenomenon, telling your body to come along
Cause White Lines blow away
Blow! Rock! Blow!

Ticket to ride a white-line highway
Tell all your friends they can go my way
Pay your toll, sell your soul
Pound for pound it costs more than gold
The longer you stay, the more you pay
My white lines go a long way
Either up your nose or through your vein
With nothing to gain except killing your brain

Freeze! (say rock, come on y’all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y’all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y’all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y’all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Aaaaah… Higher baby, get higher baby, get higher baby
And don’t ever come down… Free base!

Rang-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang
Rang-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang
Rang-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang-diggidy-dang-a-dang

Pipeline (pure as the driven snow)
Connected to my mind (and now I’m having fun, baby!)
Highrise (it’s getting kind of low)
Cause it makes you feel so nice (I need some one on one, baby!)

Tell me it’ll blow your mind away (baby)
Going to your little hideaway
Cause white lines (what do white lines do?)
Blow away
Blow! – Rock! – Blow!

A million magic crystals painted pure and white
A multi-million dollars almost overnight
Twice as sweet as sugar, twice as bitter as salt
And if you get hooked baby,
it’s nobody else’s fault – so don’t do it!

Freeze! (say rock, come on y’all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y’all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y’all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y’all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Aaaaah… Higher baby, get higher baby, get higher baby
And don’t ever come down… Free base!

(Don’t you get too high) Don’t you get too high, baby
(It turns you on) You really turn me on and on
(Can’t you ever come down) My temperature is rising
(‘Til the thrill is gone) No, I don’t want you to go

A street kid gets arrested, gonna do some time
He got out three years from now just to commit more crime

A businessman is caught with twenty four kilos
He’s out on bail, and out of jail, and that’s the way it goes!

Cane! Sugar! Cane! Sugar! Cane!

Athletes reject it – governors correct it
Gangsters, punks, and smugglers are thoroughly respected
The money gets divided – the women get excited
Now I’m broke and it’s no joke
It’s hard as hell to fight it – don’t buy it!

Freeze! (say rock, come on y’all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y’all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! – Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y’all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y’all)
Rock (say freeze, come on!)
Freeze! (say rock, come on y’all)
Rock (put ’em up, put ’em up, put ’em up!)
Aaaaah…

Perfect Day

 

Just a Perfect Day
Drank Sangria in the Park
And Later, when it gets dark

Watching The Detectives


Nice girls not one with the defects
Cellophane shrink-wrapped so correct
Red dogs under illegal legs
She looks so good that he gets down and begs

She is watching the detectives
Oh, he’s so cute
She is watching the detectives
Oh, when they shoot

They beat him up until the teardrops start
But he can’t be wounded ’cause he’s got no heart

Long shot of that jumping sign
Visible shivers running down my spine
Cut the baby taking off her clothes
Close-up of the sign that says, ‘We never close’

You snatch a tune, you match a cigarette
She pulls the eyes out with a face like a magnet
I don’t know how much more of this I can take
Oh, she filing her finger nails while they’re dragging the lake

She is watching the detectives
Oh, he’s so cute
She is watching the detectives
Oh, when they shoot

She is watching the detectives
Oh, he’s so cute
She is watching the detectives
Oh, as they shoot, shoot, shoot

They beat him up until the teardrops start
But he can’t be wounded ’cause he’s got no heart

Now you think you’re alone until you realize you’re in it
Now fear is here to stay love is here for a visit
They call it instant justice when it’s past the legal limit
Someone’s scratching at the window, I wonder who is it?

The detectives come to check if you belong to the parents
Who are ready to hear the worst about their daughter’s disappearance
Though it nearly took a miracle to get you to stay
It only took my little fingers to blow you away

She is
She is watching, oh
She is watching, oh
Watching the detectives

She is watching the detectives
Oh, he’s so cute
She is watching the detectives
Oh, as they shoot, shoot, shoot

Lay Lady Lay

Lay lady lay lay across my big brass bed
Lay lady lay lay across my big brass bed

Whatever colors you have in your mind
I show them to you and you see them shine

Lay lady lay lay across my big brass bed
Stay lady stay stay with your man a while
Until the break of day let me see you make him smile

His clothes are dirty but his his hands are clean
And you are the best thing that he’s ever seen 

Stay lady stay stay with your man a while 

Why wait any longer for the world to begin
You can have your cake and eat it too
Why wait any longer for the one you love
When he’s standing in front of you

Lay across my big brass bed
Stay lady stay

I long to see you in the morning light
I long to reach for you in the night

Stay lady stay stay while the night is still ahead

Lay lady lay
Stay stay
Stay stay

911 Is A Joke


Now I dialed nine one one a long time ago
Don’t you see how late they’re reactin’
They only come and they come when they wanna
So get the morgue truck ’em back the goner
They don’t care ’cause they stay paid anyway
They treat you like an ace that can’t be betrayed
I know you stumble with no use people
If your life is on the line then you’re dead today

Late comings with the late comin’ stretcher
That’s a body bag in disguise
Y’all I’ll betcha
I call ’em body snatchers
Quick they come to fetch you with an autopsy ambulance
Just to dissect ya

They are the kings ‘cos they swing amputation
Lose your arms your legs to them it’s compilation
I can prove it to you watch the rotation
It all adds up to a funky situation

So get up get get get down
911 is a joke in yo town
Get up get get get down
Late 911 wears the late crown

911 is a joke

Everyday they don’t never come correct
You can ask my man right here
With the broken neck
He’s a witness to the job never bein’ done
He would’ve been in full effect 911
They the token to your life when it’s croakin’
They need to be in a pawn shop on a
911 is a joke we don’t want ’em
I call a cab ’cause a cab will come quicker
The doctors huddle up and call a flea flicker
The reason that I say that ’cause they
Flick you off like fleas
They be laughin’ at ya while you’re crawlin’ on our knees
And to the strength so go the length
Thinkin’ you are first when you really are tenth
You better wake up and smell the real flavor
Cause 911 is a fake life saver

Ow, ow 911 is a joke

Crystal Ship


Before you slip into unconsciousness
I’d like to have another kiss
Another flashing chance at bliss
Another kiss, another kiss

The days are bright and filled with pain
Enclose me in your gentle rain
The time you ran was too insane
We’ll meet again, we’ll meet again

So tell me where your freedom lies
The streets are fields that never die
Deliver me from reasons why
You’d rather cry, I’d rather fly

The crystal ship is being filled
A thousand girls, a thousand thrills
A million ways to spend your time
When we get back, I’ll drop a line

 

▲ Track List

Ball Of Confusion

People movin’ out, people moving in, why?
Because of the color of their skin
Run, run, run but you sure can’t hide

An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth
Vote for me, I’ll set you free
Rap on brother, rap on

Well, the only person talkin’
‘Bout ‘love thy brother’ is a preacher
It seems, nobody is interested
In learnin’ but the teacher

Segregation, domination
Demonstration, integration
Aggravation, humiliation
Obligation to the nation

Ball of confusion, ball of confusion
That’s what your world is today
Ball of confusion, ball of confusion
That’s what your world is today

A saint is at an all time high
City’s aflame in the summer time, and
Oh, the beat goes on

Evolution, evolution, evolution
Gun control, the sound of soul
Politicians, can you believe them?
And the band played on, and the band played on

Round and around and around we go
Where ever we’re standing nobody knows

Take a look around
Can’t you hear me talking to you?
Just a ball of confusion, ball of confusion
That’s what your world is today
Ball of confusion, ball of confusion
That’s what your world is today

See it in the air, tension everywhere
Unemployment rising fast
Killers gangs watch your ass
Gun control, the sound of soul

Segregation, domination
Demonstration, integration
Aggravation, humiliation
Obligation to the nation

Ball of confusion, ball of confusion
That’s what your world is today
Ball of confusion, ball of confusion
That’s what your world is today

Ball of confusion, ball of confusion
That’s what your world is today
Ball of confusion, ball of confusion
That’s what your world is today
That’s what your world is today

Ball of confusion, ball of confusion
Ball of confusion, ball of confusion
Ball of confusion, ball of confusion
That’s what your world is today
Hey, hey

Thank You

If the sun refused to shine,
I would still be lovin’ you.
When mountains crumble to the sea,
There will still be you and me.

Kind woman, I give you my all,
Kind woman, nothing more.
Little drops of rain whisper of the pain,
Tears of loves lost in the days gone by.

My love is strong
With you there is no wrong,
Together we shall go until we die.
My, my, my,
Inspiration is what you are to me,
Inspiration, look see.

And so today, my world it smiles,
Your hand in mine, we walk the miles,
Thanks to you it will be done,
For you to me are the only one.
Happiness, no more be sad,
Happiness….I’m glad.

Drive By


It was the hottest day in July

And all along Santa Monica boulevard
Cars were stood still
And a gleaming metal tube
Would stretched all the way from Highland
Back to La Brea
And she met under the Los Angeles sunshine

(A young man was sitting at the wheel)
A young man was sitting at the wheel
On his way to make a pickup
(On his way to make a pickup)
Turned off the aircon
(Turned off the aircon)
Rolled down the window
( Rolled down the window)
And began to sweat
(To sweat)

Out over the Hollywood hills
He saw the clouds building
Like great dark towers of rain
Ready to come tumbling down
Any day now
Not a day too soon
(Any day now)

And as the music drifted in
(As the music drifted in)
From other cars
(His eyes started to slip)
His eyes started to slip
This is the story of his dream
(Sing blue silver, sing, sing blue silver)

This is the story of his dream
(His dream, his dream)
The story of his dream
