"Never Never" as written by and Peter/barat Doherty....
I was sucking on a cigarette
Where did that crowd come from?
They're all the pennies for the slot machines
Sells you back your dreams
That's fine in hell, boy
So that's fine with you

Why don't we try it again now
But my heart won't sing
Until that story's all been told
Yeah she buckled her spine, tattered my soul boy
Oh ain't that a wonder

Oh, but didn't you always say
There's gonna be a better way
I'm still lying in the muck
And mucking down with you

Did you see this girl
Look, oh, never never
Can I stay here forever? ?
Never, never, never you mind
I'll find it somewhere over the railings

Oh, but didn't I always say
There's gonna be a better way
Oh, I'm still lying in the muck
Mucking down with you

I was sucking on a straight
Where did that crowd come from?
They're all the pennies from the slot machines
Sells you back your dreams
That's fine in hell, boy
So that's fine with you

Oh, but didn't you always say
There's gonna to be a better way
Oh oh oh
And I'm still lying in the muck
Mucking down with you
Lying in the muck now
Mucking down baby with you

    General CommentYes it is on Can't stand me now single 1 (the green one) It is a brilliant song, should of been included on the album, kind of has that razorlight touch. One of my favourite Libertines songs.

    General Commentreckon its about carl and pete again..
    in an interview somewhere pete said kids are being used as pennis for the slot machines.
    i reckon pete and carl being in this band suddenly people like them people buy their records etc
    Why don't we try it again now? maybe after the first time they half split up and then reminding themselves that they always said there would be a better day
    or something bejg

    General CommentThat pennies for the slot machine thing is about the band feeling like they're using their fans 'cause they're buying their records.

    General CommentThis song absolutely kicks ass
    its such a shame it hasn't been included on an album, it really is one of their very best
    'sells you back your dreams' thats my fave line
    its just a beaut really.

    General Commentanyone know which of them wrote it?
    the beat sounds kind of like carl's style, but some of the imagery seems more like pete.....
