Thanks for the lyrics, Dave! I knew that there was something odd about "that's just youth and good jeans". :D


Well, don't underestimate the power of a good pair of jeans! hahaha

To bump this thread, has anyone tried to capture the lyrics of Rack of Glam. I admit that from the live version I don't understand a word. My only guess is that in the chorus it might but might not be "take you for the rack of glam". That's it. :oops:

Rack of Glam

Chorus is:
????????????????????????????
Thank you for the rack of glam

You'll never know how grateful I am
Thank you for the rack of glam

End of first verse:
I could stare all day at your desert trail
I could move myself into a tear

Second Verse:
I was ?????????? looked into my eyes with a smile
???????????????????????????????????????????????
As I wept your heart bled
I felt you from your native brazil
I have searched and waited
Finally located love right now and right here

Chorus

Hi.
I think this song is about .... breasts. Rack meaning tits, glamorous tits!

You can make out the words better in this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2q0uQXZxlvg

"I used to whimper like an infant
Sucking at an arid teat
I was denied the very things I desired
Without them I was incomplete..."

Cheers,
Adam.

This is not perfect, but something like this. Seems to be about breastfeeding??

I used to whimper like an infant
Sucking at an arid teat
I was denied the very things I desired
Without them I was incomplete
I was underdeveloped
Could you envelop me with love -------?-------
I could stare all day at your decolletage
I could leave myself in your cleav (cleavage) ?

Well my ma sure don't look like a man ?
Thank you for the rack of glam
You'll never know how ger-rateful I am
Thank you for the rack of
Thank you for the rack of
Thank you for the rack of glam

--------------?---------------
Will you look into my eyeballs Mum
---------?-------- as if I was to bang a drum
As I wept your heart leapt
I felt it from your --?-- brassiere
I've searched and waited
I've finally located love right now and right here

Well my ma sure don't look like a man ?
Thank you for the rack of glam
You'll never know how ger-rateful I am
Thank you for the rack of glam


Cheers,
Adam.

My attempt at Million Dollar Strong.

(Kudos to Makin' Out & Bean previously)

MILLION DOLLAR STRONG

I heard a rumour that your heart's not in it, fell apart
Disappointed that I hadn't seen it, from the start
And Love, losing out on you is still my biggest fear, baby please
Don’t go, you’ve got to let me know if any cracks appear, just let me know

I called ahead and I tried to reserve it
Come on pretty baby don’t you think I deserve it?
(I want love) we're gonna make it
Million Dollar Strong

I’m torn asunder I’m a broken person, I’m so upset
I'm not myself I’m a cruel inversion (?) but I’m not dead yet
And Love, the feelings that I have will turn me upside down, baby please
Don’t go, I don’t know what I’ll do if you are not around, I still know

I called ahead and I tried to reserve it
Come on pretty baby don’t you think I deserve it?
(I want love) we're gonna make it
Million Dollar Strong
I never want to have to look for another
Baby if you left me I would never recover
(I want love) we're gonna make it
Million Dollar Strong

I called ahead and I tried to reserve it
Come on pretty baby don’t you think I deserve it?
(I want love) we're gonna make it
Million Dollar Strong
I never want to have to look for another
Baby if you left me I would never recover
(I want love) we're gonna make it
Million Dollar Strong

^ Excellent work!!!

But my very humble suggestion is that at the end of the second verse it would "I just don't know" instead of "I still know".

Very possibly...but to my ears at least, with cans on and repeating that section over, it still gives me "I still know". :|

I think it's "Don’t go, you’ve got to let me know if any cracks appear, just let me know"?
Doesn't sound very optimistic if he's certain the cracks will appear, eh?

It'd make more lyrical sense if the end of the second verse was "I just don't know". I think the "just" is very soft and hard to hear.

I think it's preserve instead of reserve.

That would make sense.

And cruel inversion does make sense, given that it's situated before a lyric about being upside down since inverted = upside down ;)

But I get that "cruel inversion" doesn't really make sense, unless it's meaning that it's cruel that his life is inverted, as a result of a breakup... if that makes sense?

^ I don't know but I'd say that "reserve" makes more sense than "preserve". I understood the chorus as "Justin finds the woman awesome and he tries to woo her as soon as possible so that he is ahead of other suitors" and that early attempt of impressing the woman would be considered as a reservation. In relation to the rest of the song, the chorus is retrospective and it reminds the woman of how much he tried to be with her when they met. Just my opinion. :)

Thanks guys. Changed the 'ever-moving-feast' I posted because I definitely agree with Benny's point on line #4. This is what this forum IS all about! Great stuff.

I've also always thought of it as 'reserve' personally....like a 'click and collect' item at Tescos....lol. Anyhoo....if the deluxe version is similar to the Jap release of LOOK from earlier in the year, we may be put out of our misery because it will include the lyrics to the bonus tracks....here's hoping. But I won't get mine anyway until later in December coz I nabbed me a PledgeMusic band signed version that they won't be signing until they start the UK tour schedule at the end of November.

Oh....and on another plus today...my tickets arrived for The Roundhouse London gig on 20th December! Yippee! :D

Here's my attempt..........

I AM SANTA

Hungry, hungry for Yule
Yearning, winter is cruel (as is autumn)
A picturesque December, all the children are at play
And I don’t want no chestnuts or Ferrero Rocher

I can barely wipe the tearflakes from my eyes
All I see is tinsel and despair
I would ride a reindeer across the rooftops through the snow
I cannot waste another day of my life without letting you know

I’m so hungry, I’m hungry for you
I’m so hungry, oh I’m hungry for you
This Christmas time

Ravenous, got a real appetite
I will do anything, anything to know
I would leave the Lapland on a one horse open sleigh
Yeah, oh oh, and I’ll see you on Christmas day

I’m so hungry, I’m hungry for you
I’m so hungry, oh hungry for you
This Christmas time

A child wakes from his slumber
And he asks me “who are you?”
I said “son, thank you for the cookies, now I’ve got a present for you”

I am Santa, the bringer of joy
I am Santa, manufacturer and distributor of toys
I am Santa (Santa)
I’m Santa baby, and you’ve been a very good boy

Merry Xmas everyone and thanks for the cookies

Cheers! I've tweaked it now from the early hours of the morning draft I did. Looks better to me.

I think the chorus of Rack of Glam is:

Well i'm not suckling up to your mouth
Thank you for the rack of glam

You'll never know how ger-ateful I am
Thank you for the rack of glam

Solid Gold

We're Gonna Blow People's Fucking Heads Off
They're Even Gonna Shit Themselves
Crying Out For More
Cause A Wet Floor, This One's Going Out To The Fans
Hell Bent For Denim and Leather ??????
After The Show I Think I'm Gonna Blow
This Dick Ain't Gonna Suck It's Self

(Chorus)
We Are Legends With A Power That You Can't Deny
?????? That'll Never Die?
And We're Never Gonna Stop
Shitting Out Solid Gold
And We're Never Gonna Stop
Shitting Out Solid Gold
?????????

Sorry I didn't see this thread when I posted Japanese Prisoner!

I've got like 90% of this, and I'm pretty confident about it.

Solid Gold:

We're gonna blow people's fucking heads off
(Ooh, they're/people) gonna shit themselves
Crying out for more
Caution, wet floor
This one's going out to the fans/you (depends on performance)
Hell Bent For Denim and Leather
Notoriety and wealth

[I've got a/gotta show
I think we both know
This dick ain't gonna suck itself] (Indigo)

[Is this dick gonna pump itself?] (Imola)

[??? section/action?
Always that direction
Till it makes me want to kill myself] (Brisbane, lyrics seem to be different)

We are legends
We're a power that you can't deny
We are not done
('Cause) these songs will never die

And we're never gonna stop
Shitting out solid gold

There's a guy coming down from Surrey
Un-tested repertoire
If he likes what he hears with his stupid ears
I promise I'll/Might as well go faster ???
If he blows smoke up our asses
As everything went to his head
He likes/wants to wine and dine us, desperate to sign us (depends on performance)
'Cause we melted his fuckin' face

We are legends
We're a power that you can't deny
We are not done
Good songs will never die

[Chorus]

Stoned, drunk voices, screaming in the front row
Sacred promise of fellatio

So/Don't, ???
Lo and behold
Behold!
