"Laura" as written by and Billy Joel....
Laura, can't you give me some time?
I've got to give myself one more chance
To be the man that I know I am
To be the man that I know I am
Won't you just tell Cincinnati? I'm gonna need your love don't you give your love don't you give me your LOVE

Sh'mon, sh'mon
Where is your love?
Don't you give me your love Don't you give me your sh'mon, sh'mon
Where is your love?
Don't you give me your love don't you give me your

Freida, can't you spare me a dime?
I've got to give myself one more chance
To ring the band that I know I'm in
To ring the band that I know I'm in
Won't you just tell Babby Daddy?
I'm gonna need his love
Why don't he give me he love?
Why don't he give me he

Sh'mon, sh'mon
Where is your love?
Don't you give me your love
Don't you give me your sh'mon, sh'mon
Where is your love? Don't you give me your love
Don't you give me your

This'll be the last time I ever do your hair
Tired of this shit swear I'm gonna quit
Can't seem to make enough dough
But my cuttin's on a roll
One face among the many
I never thought you cared
Seen enough stuff though I got rough
Now I know it ain't so
I gotta live my own x2

    General CommentJust saw these guys play at Glastonbury. What a set! Absolutely amazing, didnt stop jumping from start to finish! Just before they played this they said it was about the Laura Bush, first lady in the 'ol US of A. Lyrics dont make any more sense, maybe u have to be american.. But who cares!

    General CommentAmyliscious, that woman "dead as fuck" is Laura Palmer from the ever so fabulous TV show TWIN PEAKS, at least that's what the band said at the Brighton Dome Concert:

    "This next song is a story. Composed about a lady. Who existed over the rainbow. Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. Two doors down from 10 Downing Street.
    And she was very beautiful.
    Very beautiful! Prom queen, as a matter of fact. Of Twin Peaks High School.
    But one fine day, she washed up on the shores of the Pacific-North-West, dead-as-fuck
    ...wrapped in plastic....
    Her name...was Laura."

    But I seriously have no clue about the connection of the character Laura Palmer to the lyrics of "Laura". Maybe the Scissor Sisters wanted to create a mystery, just like the show was. I don't know...

    General Commenti think this song's meant to be about the band starting up, hence the reference to babydaddy, and frieda, who is jake shears's mum. whatever it's about, it's fantastic!
