"78 Stone Shuffle" as written by and Ian Thomas/blackburn Ball....
I was always told that you had to have the balls to breakdown
Now I'm older I'm not too sure
I was once told that you had to have a high to lowdown
An expert told me back in the war

Broken-hearted surgery never works
So eat your words or hide them in the dirt

Raise up the anchor baby, why do we have to get way down?
Way down
Raise up the anchor baby, why do we have to get way down?

I was always told that you had to have the balls to breakdown
Now I'm older I'm not too sure
I was once told that you had to have a high to lowdown
An expert told me back in the war

Broken-hearted surgery never works
So eat your words or hide them in the dirt

Raise up the anchor baby, why do we have to get way down?
Way down
Raise up the anchor baby, why do we have to get way down?

'Cause I don't need nobody to know me
I don't want nobody to know

I don't see nobody to show me

    General CommentI always thought the line was "Raise up the anchor baby, why do we have to get weighed down?"

    General CommentFrom the Gomez album: Abandoned Shopping Trolly Hotline (north americain translation: lost and found phone number for shopping carts: ie an album of rarities and remixes.) Raise up the anchors baby... adds to my theory of avoiding big emotinal surgery because it's no fun, psychology is overrated. See my review in the original version below.
