Track Name: Roller girl
Roller girl
Candy cotton hair
And Betty Page
Underwear

Roller girl
Heavyvpetter
She'll showxyoubwhats beneath
Her Letterman sweater

Consorting with strangers in the park
Who tell her that shw looks Like Candy Clark
In the dark - whoa-whoa

She's writing her name on all the walls
Cos that's the only thing that she can spell
Other girls they just don't have the balls
She's rolling and rocking
Adjustingher stocking
Subversive and shocking Roller Girl

Outside the gym
In denim flares
With tartan trim

Roller girl
Available
In ball point pen
Or aerosol

She'd do most anything to make her mark
Consorting with strangers in the park
After dark - woah-woah

She's writing her name on all the walls
Cos that's the only thing that she can spell
Other girls they just don't have the balls
She's rolling and rocking
Adjustingher stocking
Subversive and shocking Roller Girl

Roller Girl

She's writing her name on all the walls
Cos that's the only thing that she can spell
Other girls they just don't have the balls
She's rolling and rocking
Adjustingher stocking
Subversive and shocking Roller Girl

She's writing her name on all the walls
She's writing her name on all the walls
She's writing her name on all the walls
Track Name: Ballerina in the stars
Tina Tina Tina Tina Davis broke my heart#
I kissed the dandruff on her scalp
And waited for the waterworks to start

Mrs Thatcher stole our milk away
But I'd rather be a tranny than a tory anyday

Tina Tina Tina Tina Davis hold my hand
You're the only girl in class
Who seems to understand

The Yom Kippor war began today
But I'd rather be a bancrupt than a banker anyday

Oh Tina
Haven't you seen her?
The boy who tried to steal your heart away

Tina
She's a ballerina in the stars
And she'd like to know if you can come and play
Won't you come and play?

Tina Tina Tina Tina Davis walk with me
You're the only girl in class I
Fancy secretly
Mrs Thatcher's war is on the way
But I'd rather be a pervert than a politician - anyday

Oh Tina
Haven't you seen her?
The boy who tried to steal your heart away

Tina
She's a ballerina in the stars
And she'd like to know if you can come and play
Won't you come and play?
Won't you come and play?
Won't you come and play?
Won't you come and play?
Track Name: Hot for a freak
You're pretty hot for a freak
Track Name: Ditzy lil alien
Starburst over London
I fell out of the sky
Lost among the universe
They never told me why

So I found a gang to run with
Who don't laugh at my clothes
They give me pills and cuddle me
To stop me catching cold

Now I've watched them with my artificial eyes
Felt their grubby little bodies with my simulacra thighs

Don't the heels feel real - a-ha
Don't the heels feel real - a-ha
On your ditzy lil alien
Your ditzy little alien

la-la-la-la la-la-la-la-la

Third star on the left in the Andromeda zone
That's where I should be
But I'll never get back home

So I come home with the milkfloat from
The Land of Make Believe
When I jump down from this rooftop
I won't feel a thing - you'll see

Now I've watched them with my artificial eyes
Felt their grubby little bodies with my simulacra thighs

Don't the heels feel real - a-ha
Don't the heels feel real - a-ha
On your ditzy lil alien
Your ditzy little alien

la-la-la-la la-la-la-la-la
Track Name: The day before the aliens came
The girl with the marble cake hair
Is sitting in her under wear
By a window looking out at
God knows where

While somewhere far away
Mummy Daddy and the children play
Happy families
With nobody to blame
The day before the aliens came

Oh come back Mummy
I'm frightened of the dark
Oh come back Daddy
they're making the dog bark
Using frequencies that only we can hear
Blowing up skycrapers
And filling us with fear
I wish that you were here
To hold my hand

The girl with the marble cake hair
Is rocking back and forth in her chair
By a window in Community care
While somewhere far away
The doctors and the social workers say
It's OK
There's nobody to blame
The day before the aliens came
Track Name: Suicide boy
It's only a machine makes money

I'm lacey and I'm scary
I'm your dizzy punk canary
So what'd you want to do

My legs make you want to weep
I'm yours to cut out and keep

I'm your suicide boy
Suicide boy
Decadent toy
Fill your heart with joy
I'm your suicide boy
Suicide boy
Decadent toy
Fill your heart with joy

But I'll never sell my body
Never sell my soul
It's only a machine makes money
It's only rock n roll

I'm your suicide boy
Suicide boy
Decadent toy
Fill your heart with joy
I'm your suicide boy
Suicide boy
Decadent toy
Fill your heart with joy

My legs make you want to weep
I'm yours to cut out and keep

I'm your suicide boy
Suicide boy
Decadent toy
Fill your heart with joy
I'm your suicide boy
Suicide boy
Decadent toy
Fill your heart with joy
Track Name: I'm Glam (pt 2)
I'm glam
I am
Hot damn
I'm glam

I'm punk
Wear junk
Got spunk
Real funk

You're glum
and some
Humdrum
So numb

No fear
I'm here
So sheer
How queer
