"Born Slippy" as written by and Karl Hyde Richard Smith....
Drive boy, dog boy, dirty numb angel boy
In the doorway boy
She was a lipstick boy
She was a beautiful boy
And tears boy and all in your inner space boy
You had hand girls boy and steel boy
You had chemicals boy, I've grown so close to you
Boy and you just grown boy
She said come over, come over
She smiled at you, boy

Drive boy, dog boy, dirty numb angel boy
In the doorway boy
She was a lipstick boy
She was a beautiful boy
And tears boy and all in your inner space boy
You had hand girls boy and steel boy
You had chemicals boy, I've grown so close to you
Boy and you just grown boy
She said come over, come over
She smiled at you, boy

Let your feelings slip boy
But never your mask boy
Random blonde bio high density rhythm
Blonde boy, blonde country, blonde high density
You are my drug boy, you're real boy
Speak to me and boy dog, dirty numb cracking boy
You get wet boy, big big time boy, acid bear boy
Babes and babes and babes and babes and babes
And remembering nothing boy
You like my tin horn boy and get wet like an angel
Derail

You got a velvet mouth
You're so succulent and beautiful
Shimmering and dirty wonderful and hot times
On your telephone line and God and everything
On your telephone and in walk an angel

And look at me
Your mom squatting pissed in a tube-hole at Tottenham Court Road
I just come out of the ship
Talking to the most blonde I ever met
Shouting, lager, lager, lager, lager
Shouting, lager, lager, lager, lager
Shouting, lager, lager, lager, lager
Shouting, lager, lager, lager
Shouting, mega, mega, white thing
Mega, mega, white thing
Mega, mega, white thing
Mega, mega
Shouting, lager, lager, lager, lager
Mega, mega, white thing
Mega, mega, white thing
So many things to see and do in the tube hole true
Blonde going back to Romford
Mega, mega, mega, going back to Romford
Hi mom are you having fun
And now are you on your way
To a new tension headache

    General CommentIn the Guardian newspaper February 24, 2006, Karl Hyde said: "We used to go out drinking in Soho and I ended up in the Ship on Wardour Street. All the lyrics were written on that night. A drunk sees the world in fragments and I wanted to recreate that. I was inspired by Lou Reed's New York album and Sam Shepard's Motel Chronicles. I was into flash photography as well, so I was walking around Soho with a notebook and camera, just observing things. In those days I'd open the book whenever a musical idea inspired me. Rick [Smith] came up with a rhythm and I started singing over it. The vocals were done in one take. When I lost my place, I'd repeat the same line; that's why it goes, 'lager, lager, lager, lager.' The first time we played it live, people raised their lager cans and I was horrified because I was still deep into alcoholism. It was never meant to be a drinking anthem; it was a cry for help. Now I don't mind. Why Born Slippy? It was a greyhound we won money on."

    General Commentdamn if i can decipher this song, it's just a fun choon!

    i remember dancing to it in the streets of Edinburgh, Scotland New Year's '97. i think the best memories come from the best songs.

    isn't that what it's all about? your experiences and the songs you were hooked on in that time in your life?

    everybody has their own personal soundtrack.

    General Commentto me this words sound like the chaotic thoughts you have in a wild club night. when you're on the dancefloor and completely sunk into the music. on certain substances...

    General CommentDoes anyone else notice the similarities between this song and The Killers song Mr. Brightside? It's just like Jet ripping off Iggy Pop!

    General CommentI think it's just about being out. There aren't many bands that attempt to recreate the chaos of a good night on the tiles in lyric form. This and Moaner are about the only songs I can think of that do that. They're like sister-tracks in a way.

    General CommentI think this is a song about drugs, well a drug! I think it gives so many refernces to PCP or Angel dust. The terms 'Get wet boy, big big time boy, acid bear boy' also the angel references as well as what he is feeling. He is invincible. He feels so good. Then again i may be wrong wrong wrong!

    Whatever. The song is a classic and is an anthem!
