Bye bye baby ill cya later
Bye bye baby ill cya later
My man looks like the old Shakin’ Stevens
He says I resemble like the old Steptoe
He sits down slow but quick sniff up the blow
Reminisce about beans and how we all do grow
And the good man says bloody feel like leaving
But hes lean again forgotten what I already know
Made enough money shottin’ bobby bills and po
He spent it all quick sniffin’ up on the blow


Hard for your playin no smoking on the night bus
No shit Holmes with your big boy Sherlock
The man got chickenpox at 23
If you go down the docks you better take all of your money money money money
It ain't no dunny, it's a toilet
Great grandaddy, got sent there
So go back home
Stop cloggin' up pubs with your bullshit talkin'
And the nightbuses that complain at us
Peeps call us right-wing but we’re pretty fucking liberal
I shit you, you not cos we’re all for the equal
And yes J, I agree the first Predator is much better than the sequel
No question, the second one’s feeble
Kids with skids, and coughing up dust
Yeah I’m waiting man, I cuss, must, and man
Now bike chain broken, now that too much rust
And people slowly stepping in ways trying to cuss us

Here’s ya getaway
I ain’t gonna try to cry
Hard for your playin no smoking on the night bus
And so I must say
Kids with skids, and coughing up dust
I sad to see you cut the ties
Good man says bloody feel like leaving

In these cities, hard to see the stars overhead
Can see the moon though the street light turns it blood red
The star symbolises the guts we bled
The mouth got fed the winding alleys that we tread
The moon much bigger representing the dead
Who lie in the sewers under soldier’s feet
They stir as you march while your asleep they walk the street
Put your ears to the drain you can hear them weep

So we all chat about it and we decided you should getaway
Here’s ya getaway
You’re getting away
Man here’s ya getaway
And yeah bye bye baby
Ill see you later
Ill see you later
Here’s ya getaway
Rob the bank here’s ya getaway
And ill take my ticket get out of this town
And get away
Here’s ya getaway
Ah cha cha baby
Here’s ya getaway
Rob the bank take the getaway
And ill talk to the pigs hear as I say
And id get yourself out of this city, oh getaway
Oh man here’s ya getaway
And id getaway, getaway, id getaway
Oh yeah show to the peeps I see what I see
And oh, rob the bank, Make a getaway
And ill rob the bank, but ill take a getaway

Here’s ya getaway
Bye bye baby ill
I ain’t gonna try to cry
But I must say
Bye bye baby ill
I sad to see you cut the ties
Bye bye baby ill cya later

    General Commentthis mght be wong


    but i think this song is about when a family member is leaving and moving on to better things like siblings maybe? and basically one of the siblings is leaving and the other is glad that they are getting out of the town but is kind of jealous that they cant leave

    i aint gonna try to cry- this might mean im not gonna try to make you stay but im not gonna show that i dnt want you to go at the same time

    the angry bit in the middle when hes like rob the back take your getaway

    sounds really bitter like sort of hes saying just go already

    almost like "i would do anything to leave this town so just take your chance and go"


    its a really sad song
    i love jamie t soo soo much

    General CommentI really think this song is about a lost generation, a generation with no identity and the only way out is to get right out. And yeah, there's a bitterness there because so few make it out.
    Peeps call us right-wing but we’re pretty fucking liberal
    I shit you, you not cos we’re all for the equal" - is about being labelled a racist or 'right-wing' but actually they want equality, the same chances as everyone else.

    General Commenti reckon this song is the stories of the crappy people around JT in the crappy town he lives in as he tries to find a way out-
    'He sits down slow but quick sniff up the blow
    Reminisce about beans and how we all do grow'

    the chorus is mainly about JT wantin to get away
    'i ain't gonna try to cry'
    hes been ofered 'a ticket outa this town'. His old man cant make it out of the town cause hes got no money
    'He spent it all quick sniffin’ up on the blow'

    'Yeah I’m waiting man, I cuss, must, and man
    Now bike chain broken, now that too much rust'
    this shows that he couldnt get away as eveythin in the shit town is... well shit...

    i think little missgg has got it
    especially with the bitterness (and also inner reluctance) in getting out
    'They stir as you march while your asleep they walk the street Put your ears to the drain you can hear them weep'

    i think the whole robbing the bank thing is more of a gift than to do with jealousy-
    'So we all chat about it and we decided you should getaway'

    also love JT
    great song
