LYRICS

The Room by Leapfrogtown

Sacred traces, Left in between the little Hidden spaces, All left behind behind the Long-lost faces, But not forgotten by the Rooooom
God knows how long The ghosts have been Inhabiting my new song, So get behind me and, We can’t go too wrong. Everybody in the Rooooom
 Everybody in the room, Yeah it’s all about the room
Everybody in the room, Yeah it’s all about the rooooom
 Be here or be queer, Out in cyberspace is Absolutely nowhere. Smell the monkey man And feel all the real hair, Everybody in the Rooooom
 Everybody in the room, Yeah it’s all about the room
Everybody in the room, Yeah it’s all about the rooooom

Poppy Go Now by Leapfrogtown

Poppy come home, Poppy been wandering, I been alone. Making a home. These is my house, These is my walls. No locks on my doors, All my rooms are yours
Poppy go now, Poppy go now, Poppy go now. Poppy won’t go, No no no. Poppy won’t go. No no no. Because she love me so
Poppy go now, Honeymoon over. We been in clover, Not any more. These is my house. These is my walls. No locks on my doors, All my rooms are yours
Poppy go now, Poppy go now, Poppy go now. Poppy won’t go, No no no. Poppy won’t go. No no no. Because she love me so
Poppy go now, Poppy come home. Poppy go now, Poppy come home. Poppy go now

In the Dark by Leapfrogtown

Mesmerise me baby, Put your eyes in my eyes. Nestle up beside me, Like the sunri-ise. Mesmerise me baby, Put your head in my head. Cuddle up inside me. And imagine we’re dead
I’m in the dark, I’m in the dark. When the sun comes out, I’m in the dark
Mesmerise me baby, Put your life on the line. Put yourself inside me, And watch how we shine
I’m in the dark, I’m in the dark. When the sun comes out, I’m in the dark
Mesmerise me baby, Put you clothes on my line. Peg me out in heaven, Before my time
I’m in the dark, I’m in the dark. When your sun comes out, I’m in the dark

 

Flora Town by Leapfrogtown

Sugar-rush on the ghost-train, 4-leaf clover plan. 40 days in the desert, You gotta be a man. Ben he went on the Wurlitzer. Then he lay right down. It’s a long way back to the desert, Here in Flora Town
Flora Town. I’m going down to Flora Town. I’m going down to Flora Town
Bankers dance with the schoolgirls, Housewives on the street. High as kites on the nectar, Bees control the heat. Got cross with the candy-floss, Smudged my face up. Last one back is a cissy, Life is getting tough.
In Flora Town. I’m going down to Flora Town. I’m going down to Flora Town
Had a tantrum in Toon Town, Micky stared at me. Scaring mum like a baby, In my bridal gown. Sugar-rush on the ghost-train, 4-leaf clover plan, 40 days in the desert. You gotta be a man, In Flora Town.
I’m going down to Flora Town, I’m going down to Flora Town

Fear by Leapfrogtown

Mama tried to do it with a smile. Daddy tried to do it with a long, long mile. Sister tried to do it with a curse, Brother tried to do it but he had to rehearse. When they see your innocent face. They form a queue to fill that space, Take good care of your empty room, Don’t let em in Don’t let em in
Fear, The big bad drug. Fear, The big bad drug. Fear, The big bad drug. Give it up, Give it up, Give it up
Teacher tried to do it with a fact, Preacher tried to do it with a yackety-yak. Broker tried to it with a pact, Jesus tried to do it but he got the sack. When they see your innocent face, They form a queue to fill that space, Take good care of your empty room. Don’t let em in Don’t let em in
Fear, The big bad drug. Fear, The big bad drug. Fear, The big bad drug. Give it up, Give it up, Give it up

Dreaming in Public by Leapfrogtown

 You won’t get my number that easy, You won’t get the puzzle that quick. You won’t get me out of the mazy, Because this is real not a trick. OK then I’ll give you a clue, Tell you when you’re hot or you’re cold. Count to ten and then I say boo, Who to say you do what you’re told
Ooh Boo, Ooh Boo. I’m dreaming in public, Dreaming in public, Dreaming in public, Dreaming in public. Dr-ea-ming. Dr-ea-ming, In public
You don’t give my mumbo no meaning, You don’t get my jumble to crack. You don’t get the luvverly feeling, When there is no going back. OK then I’ll give you a hint, Tell you when you’re cold or your not. Time to throw the book on the fire, Tell me when it’s getting too hot
Ooh Boo, Ooh Boo. I’m dreaming in public, Dreaming in public, Dreaming in public, Dreaming in public. Dr-ea-ming. Dr-ea-ming, In public

Bed Forever by Leapfrogtown

Moon come up sun come up, Everything is getting up. Think I’m gonna stay in bed today, On the street red hot feet. Teeth and bellies need to eat. Think I’m gonna stay in bed today. Going sailing on the wide white ocean. Gonna climb old pillow hill. Gonna get to know my duvet like a bosom-pal, Maybe you should stay in bed as well
I miss the bus I start to cuss, The sacrifice I made for us. Think I’m gonna lose my job today, Out of work again you jerk. I should have been a filing clerk, Think I’m gonna lose my mind today
I been sailing on the wide white ocean, I been climbing pillow hill. I got to know my duvet like a bosom-pal, And all because you stayed in bed as well.
Moon come up sun come up, Everything is getting up. Think I’m gonna stay in bed today. Stay in bed today…Stay in bed today

Anyone’s Game by Leapfrogtown

 Butterflies live to a hundred and three, Children designing the planet for me. Buzz me I’ll call you I’ll fall at your feet, Virtually kiss me I’ll cuddle your tweet. 
It’s anyone’s game, Anyone’s game now. It’s anyone’s game. Dream and you’ve got it, Touch and it’s coming. Dream and you’ve got it, Touch and it’s coming your way
Polar bears dancing down old Leicester Square, Sharks in my pocket and stars in your hair. Happiness growing like movies on us. High on the virtual open-topped bus
It’s anyone’s game, Anyone’s game now. It’s anyone’s game. Dream and you’ve got it, Touch and it’s coming. Dream and you’ve got it, Touch and it’s coming your way
Fresh out of nursery ruling the world, We are the kings and the cyberboy girls. Love is the question the answer is why, High on the wing of an old butterfly.
It’s anyone’s game, Anyone’s game now. It’s anyone’s game. Dream and you’ve got it, Touch and it’s coming. Dream and you’ve got it, Touch and it’s coming your way. Touch and it’s coming your way

Animals are Great by Leapfrogtown

I want to eat it but I don’t want to kill, I like the flavour and I love animals. I want to eat it but I don’t want to kill, Then someone tells me that I am one myself. I like it crispy when I wake in the morning, My mama cook it and I just have to eat. No-one will miss me when I go to my grave, I died for someone I’m the meat on your plate
Animals… are great. Animals… are great
I want to see them in the jungle at night, I hate the bastards when they go down the drain. I want to see them on my ipad at night, I love bush babies but they don’t have my brain. I like them queuing on a hot barbecue, My friends around me and the sky crystal blue. The juice is flowing and my stomach replete, We are the winners cos we’re all made of meat
 Animals… are great. Animals… are great
I am a mole and I live in a hole. I’m on the colour-blind side of your soul. I am a bat and I live in the sky, I can connect you to the place where you die. Get down get down get down get down
Animals… are great. Animals… are great
