"No Good Advice" as written by Miranda Eleanor De Fonbrune Cooper, Brian Thomas Higgins, Timothy Martin Powell, Matthew Del Gray, Lisa Cowling, Nick Coler, Shawn Lee Mahan, Tim Elliot Larcombe and Lene Crawford Nystroem....
Daddy told me
Look into the future
Sit at your computer
And be a good girl

Momma said remember
Your a lady
Think before you play
And straighten your curls

Well everybody's talkin'
Like I'm crazy
Dangerous and lazy
Girl with no soul
But I've seen it all
From where I'm hiding
Baby 'cause I'm sliding out of control

Here I go out the door
Crankin' the stereo
I think a finger
To the world below oh

Here I am dirty hands
I don't give a damn
Shut your mouth cause it might show

I don't need no good advice
I'm already wasted

I don't need some other life
Cold and complicated

I don't need no Sunday trips
Tea and sympathizing

I don't need no special fix
To anesthetizers me

Daddy always told me
Remember to leave the buzz till later
Don't you drop down

Momma said ill never get
To heaven hanging till 11
With the wrong crowd

Everybody's talkin'
Like they know me
Just another phony girl about play
But I dig the music
And I'm making baby
And I'm breakin' into your brain

Here I go out the door
Cranking the stereo
I think a finger
To the world below oh

Here I am dirty hands
I don't give a damn
Shut your mouth
'Cause it might show

I don't need no good advice
I'm already wasted

I don't need no other life
Cold and complicated

I don't need no Sunday trips
Tea and sympathizing

I don't need no special fix
To aneathatize me

Here I go out the door
Cranking the stereo
I think a finger to the world below

Here I am dirty hands
I don't give a damn
Shut your mouth
'Cause it might show

I don't need no good advice
I'm already wasted

I don't need no other life
Cold and complicated

I don't need no Sunday trips
Tea and sympathizing

I don't need no special fix
To anesthetizes me

I don't need no good advice
I'm already wasted

I don't need no other life
Cold and complicated

I don't need no Sunday trips
Tea and sympathizing

I don't need no special fix
To anesthetizes me

    General CommentIts about rebelling against your parents advice.

    The line "Shut your mouth because it might show" was originally "Shut your mouth because your shit might show" It was changed to keep parents happy. The original version of this song can be found on the 2 disc UK special edition of their Greatest Hits CD.

    General CommentFrom the singles boxset:
    'No Good Advice was written by Brian Higgins and Miranda Cooper when they were known as Moonbaby and were signed to London Records in the late 1990s. The band didn't take off and No Good Advice was one of the tunes that summed up the relationship with London Records turning sour- it also took on a special significance years later with Girls Aloud thrown into the mix. The song's chorus began rather differently- with the phrase 'I don't like fried rice'. No Good Advice was sung over a rave backing track and it was only when different Xenomania musicians were asked to contribute new backing tracks to the song that the familiar No Good Advice sound took shape'.
