"Northern Line" as written by and Jamie Alexander Treays....
You were a no-show, down the jivin' disco
My momma's at home getting pissed on vino
When the kids buy draws but they're smokin' bisto
My flow goes straight but it ends illegal
And the regal sons get the purest bugel
And the bullies only pick on the young and feeble,
Now hey yo lets go mucho boozin'
Sometimes you wonder what am I doing?
You move and you groove when you lose what you lose,
And you lose what you groove and your moving away
And you move what you groove when you prove what you lose
And you lose what you choose
And your moving away
Well ok, what happened this free state?
Straight to the barrier then run off away
I say what I mean but don't mean
What I say was I right? no?
Oh-my-goody-gosh darn it
Chattin' to barney from with no barnet about how we sure do love it
A young son moppet with my ma's gin and tonic,
And I'm pukin' up all over your capri car bonnet

[Chorus]
You got so much to take, too much always gonna waste your time
I need direction, always been crap on the travel as I read the signs
So shut your mouth love before I spit this track where the sun don't shine
Tick a tock the clock actin' like a motherfucker drunk,
Fallin' asleep on the northern line

All aboard! last train!

How would you feel gettin' left alone he was a toned down original and stepped to toe
He was the bottomless bottles and the back washed barrel
And the sikh who is son was thrown out and left farel
Its all gone wrong in your life o answers
Users take AAA's art to charge us
Take you away from your hazy days
Rave life just a blur in the halls of dancers

[Chorus]

Wakey wakey! hup ya step! one man band, eh?
What you doing? where ya where ya run from?
Where ya where ya two tone, where you been done?
What you doin', where ya where ya been?
Your holdin' it down with your piece-meal heart

Give it away, I want yo money etc

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentThe "wakey wakey" line is from "Alicia Quays", actually. Great tune, love it. Glad I got the version of the album with this and "Rawhide" as bonustracks on it, two great tracks imo.
