"Shut Up" as written by and Graham/barson Mcpherson....
I tell you I didn't do it
'Cause I wasn't there
Don't blame me, it just isn't fair
You listen to their side
Now listen to mine
Can't think of a story
Sure you'll find me sometime

Now pass the blame and don't blame me
Just close your eyes and count to three
(One two three)
Then I'll be gone and you'll forget
The broken window, t.v. set

It wasn't me either, I'm just his mate
He told me to stand here and watch the gate
I've got a wife and three kids you know
They'll tell you I'm straight, at least I think so
I'm as honest as the day is long,
The longer the daylight, the less I do wrong

Now pass the blame and don't blame me
Just close your eyes and count to three
(One two three)
Then I'll be gone and you'll forget
The broken window, t.v. set

Pass the blame and don't blame me
Just close your eyes and count to three
(One two three)
Then I'll be gone and I'll forget
That what you give is what you get...

Pass the blame and don't blame me
Just close your eyes and count to three
(One two three)
Then I'll be gone and you'll forget
The broken window, t.v. set

Pass the blame and don't blame me
Just close your eyes and count to three
(One two three)
Then I'll be gone and I'll forget
That what you give is what you get...

    General CommentIn the video Suggs is the thief. The others are once or twice dressed as thieves but most often they are the bobbies. I suppose Kix is the one who wanted to levitate again after Baggie Trousers.
    That song's funny but you gotta see them fooling around, they were good at it.

    General CommentI was always told that this was about a bungled robbery which took place in the early days of Madness. Dont know if it involved any of the band members, people they knew or just an incident at the time. But i do know that the name'shut up' came form the original chorus which was scrapped because the song was too long.

    General CommentMe again. A silly thing to do: posting until the songs
    I like reach 7. Madness' page ain't the most popular
    and that breaks my heart. Almost.

    General CommentWhat really puts me down is to see the band members getting older and fatter.
    It seemed that Suggs hadn't changed much until
    recently. Strangely I find Woody looks better than
    ever at 48! And my sweet Bedders.... shaved head...
    Whenever he wears a hat you'd say he's 35.

    General CommentWhen Madness was at its peak I was a toddler.
    The only sensible thing left for me to do is to
    Shut the fuck Up.
