Once a label is on something
It becomes an it
Like it's no longer alive
It's like a loss of vision
Or some dark impression
Or a black spot on your eye
If it's up to you
My little sweet baboo

Through the shouting and the fever
Think of life as queer
Think of it my dear
As some knobs or a fancy tone
From here there is no reason
Baby's got it made
But it's not what the life's about
What is imagination?
May become a fact
If we think of it that way

If you want to know
I can tell you now
Or if you make it through somehow
Or is it best to keep or fall to sleep
It isn't looking very good to me from here

Hey,
He's distressed
And I forget
I don't wanna know 'cause I forget

He's distressed
And I forget
I don't wanna know 'cause I forget

He's distressed
And I forget
I don't wanna know 'cause I forget

He's distressed
And I forget
I don't wanna know 'cause I forget

I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know
What do New York couples fight about
Brother's gonna work it out
(Baby's got the bed sheet)
How do
(That was under you)
New York
(When your time and and the life expires)
Couples Fight it out
What these couples fight about

(Keeps it in the closet)
What do
(Keeps it to herself)
New york
(She should throw the damn thing out)
Couples fight about
But their gonna work it out
(Why should you continue)
How do
(To shake it off)
New York
(Would you write things on the wall)
Couples fight it out
What these couples fight about

You could make it hard, to be
In the shouting you will see
Or is it best to change the world you're keeping
Down again

Hey,
He's distressed
And I forget
I don't wanna know 'cause I forget

He's distressed
And I forget
I don't wanna know 'cause I forget

He's distressed
And I forget
I don't wanna know 'cause I forget

He's distressed
And I forget
I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know...

Such is the sound of sorry
Without the shy report
Or the grips that could hold you down

(Just when things were looking up
You act just like a horses butt)
Everything was simple
But the body's worn
Got the life spread on the ground
(Powder pink and general,
the kitchen sink, a funeral)
Every loving other
Don't you fade on me
Like a bomb that's about to blow

(Often we will overlook,
the things that make it undercooked)
We can make it hard
Or we can take the world apart
Or you'd never be that sure?
Of the simple thing that makes you want to cry again

Hey,
He's distressed
And I forget
I don't wanna know 'cause I forget

He's distressed
And I forget
I don't wanna know 'cause I forget

He's distressed
And I forget
I don't wanna know 'cause I forget

He's distressed
And I forget
I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know

He's distressed
And I forget
I don't wanna know 'cause I forget

He's distressed
And I forget
I don't wanna know 'cause I forget

He's distressed
And I forget
I don't wanna know 'cause I forget

He's distressed
And I forget
I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know

This one isn't bad, but there are so many better Morcheeba songs out there.
Overheard at Dean & DeLuca. Or was it Zabar?
Kurt Wagner, Great voice!
that's the one! thanks.
Crash Test Dummies - "mmm mmm mmm" maybe? I think he has a bit more of a Mark Knopfler sound.
the guy singing... he sounds like that guy that sang the song about the white-haired kid in a car accident. what is that song? *scratches head* can't remember. anyway, sounds like that. and not much like morcheeba.
Am I the only to find this deeply boring?? A 3 for me...
He sounds like Willem Defoe
Never heard this before. It's pretty freaking good.
Nice! :)
This song always sneaks up on me. I don't care so much for the first part, but from the part where Skye starts singing the "What do...New York...couples fight about?", the song just grabs me and won't let go. I also like hearing this song come on, 'cause the next song on the album is "Undress me now", which is a deliciously seductive song!
Where's my Coffee.
Genius!
I like this. Ahhhh, I think I have this album?!

Hoe is tie, Rich? Morcheeba IS always cool!

Bio...The most groove-oriented act in the mid-'90s female-fronted electronica crowd, Morcheeba relies on the sweet, fluid vocals of Skye Edwards and a laid-back mix of fusion, funk, and blues produced by brothers Paul and Ross Godfrey, on beats/scratches and guitar/keyboards, respectively...(by John Bush)... :music: ...
Really ?? !!!!! Just sounds like rubbish to me
adult contemporary on prozac :beat:
Once a morcheeba fan...always a morcheeba fan? :cool: Gotta allow for growth and experimentation.
I lost track of Morcheeba after their first two discs. Big Calm is still one of my favourite late 90s albums. They became too poppy after that. I'll always love the (female) singer's voice, though.
:devil_pimp: oh yeah
Certainly made me sit up. Will have to wait for a few more listens but I suspect that it's a 6 that's likely to grow.
I really don't like the guy.
Did he just say "Sweet Baboo" ? ..yay for Peanuts.

Whether or not the term "bridge and tunneler" is elitist; West Side or East Side; et al.
Is this guy a computer? Why does he talk/'sing' like that? Does Not Compute!!!
Ya know...Mets vs, Yankees, Giants vs. Jets ,stuff like that.

imagine that, another morcheeba song i dig...
Ohhhh,MorCHEEba... :rolleyes:
(just when things were looking up you act just like a horse's butt) i dunno, those are pretty tough lyrics to beat, even by lambchop's standards
Good song, but there's loads of Lamchop songs that are better.
Wow, my favourite Morcheeba song!! :bounce:
