"If....." as written by Edward Daniel Chester, Adam Patrick Devlin, Mark James Morriss and Scott Edward Morriss....
If you
Get out
Before September
Remember
That I'm
Still inside
But I'm dry
I'm dry

And you
When you try
To make a difference
You're so different
And then I
Try
And just die
I die

You know
That I need
You more than I want ya
But I want ya
For all time
So I
I guess on the line

It's all that I can do
To sing these stupid songs to you
I give up half my time
Just trying to think up words that rhyme
I ain't getting any younger
But you wouldn't know
So it's on
With the show

Sometimes
A smoke
A drink and a ponder
Can work wonders
When you're down
Takes your frown
Turns it 'round
Around

And you
When you try
To make a difference
You're no different
Than when I
Try
And just die
I die

And now
That your day
Dream is forgotten
And forgiven
And the world
Has been saved
Be brave

It's all that I can do
To sing these stupid songs to you
I give up half my time
Just trying to think up words that rhyme
I ain't getting any younger
But you wouldn't know
'cause I walk
In shadow
And I never ever
Really show my face
But I'm only ever seen
In the right place
If you get out
Before September
Remember
That I'm
Still inside
But I'm dry
I'm dry

And you
When you try
To make a difference
You're so different
And then I
Try
And just die
I die

You know
That I need
You more than I want ya
But I want ya
For all time
So I
I guess on the line

It's all that I can do
To sing these stupid songs to you
I give up half my time
Just trying to think up words that rhyme
I ain't getting any younger
But you wouldn't know
So it's on
With the show

Sometimes
A smoke
A drink and a ponder
Can work wonders
When you're down
Takes your frown
Turns it 'round
Around

And you
When you try
To make a difference
You're no different
Than when I
Try
And just die
I die

And now
That your day
Dream is forgotten
And forgiven
And the world
Has been saved
Be brave

It's all that I can do
To sing these stupid songs to you
I give up half my time
Just trying to think up words that rhyme
I ain't getting any younger
But you wouldn't know
'Cause I walk
In shadow
And I never ever
Really show my face
But I'm only ever seen
In the right place

    General Commentthis remains my favourite song by the bluetones....not too sure why, i just love it all over. it's amazing tune and lyrics just make me smile when i listen to it. i am a huge fan of the bluetones, i'd easily put comments for all the songs on here cos they're so obviously horribly undiscovered with exceptions from the odd few 'tone's folk like moi =) but i am sleepy right now. But I have everything the bluetones have ever done - including all the singles (yesh, that's how obsessed i am =P) and every song is a new surprise and just unbelievable. i'm sittin in my bluetones tshirt as i speak....=$ =) ....bluetones = godlyness =)

    General CommentI really like the ending when it's like a whole stadium of people singing.
