"Delivery" as written by Peter Doherty and Michael Whitnall....
By, oh by, the way of an explanation
Cast adrift of the shores of shorty's nation
I had a lick, it caved my skull in like a brick

Call now, what use am I to anyone
I'm fucked, forlorn, frozen beneath the summer
Don't sing along or you'll get what I got

So, here comes a delivery
Straight from the heart of my misery
So, here comes a delivery
Straight from my heart to you

Yeah you, now you, now you, you finally left school
Oh, what on earth do you intend to do?
See if you can take the man go downtown

Where all your skins and mods, you get together
Make pretend it's 1969 forever
Find a girl, have a drink, have a dance and play

It's a song that deliver me
Straight from the harshness of misery
Is a song that you'll ever hear
Straight from my heart to you

Yes, here comes a delivery
Straight from the heart of my misery
Or a song might deliver me
Straight from my heart to you

Yes, here comes a delivery
Straight from the heart of the misery
Here comes a delivery
Straight from my heart to you

    General CommentThis song is about Pete not wanting other people to follow his drug taking ways.
    I had a lick, it caved my skull in like a brick
    This is Pete conveying how the drugs have messed up his head

    Oh now what use am I to anyone
    He feels useless because of what they have done to him

    Fucked, forlorn, frozen beneath the summer
    When everyone else is happy he still feels miserable

    Don't sing along or you'll get what I got
    If you do drugs like him you'll end up as msierable as him

    General CommentIm fairly sure its:

    "Yeah you, now you, now you,
    You've finally left school
    Oh what, on earth, do you intend to do?"

    General CommentI realise this version posted was probably an earlier recording...so there are a few lyric changes in the recorded/album version....

    changes are in CAPS.

    1. 'Cast a drift of the shores of SHOTTER'S nation'
    ...The name of the album will be 'Shotter's nation'.

    2. 'OH NOW what use am I to anyone
    F**KED, forlorn, frozen beneath the summer
    Don't sing along or you'll get what I got'

    3 I agree w Jayd,it is SCHOOL.

    4. 'Or find a girl, have a drink, have a dance and PRAY.
    THIS SONG MIGHT DELIVER ME'

    hope thats okay, i realise a lot was nitpicking!
    Thanks

    General CommentLove the song - although nobody else think its a total rip off of 'You Really Got Me' by the Kinks...not taking anything away mind, Delivery is still a great song in its own right!

    General Comment^^^ I wouldn't call it a total rip off, but that's what I thought the radio was about to play when I heard the introduction.
