"Shock Horror" as written by Kyle Falconer, Kieren Webster, Peter Reilly and Steven Morrison....
Tell you the same thing that they told me
Worth your weight in gold
Should I practice what I preach man?
Should I just do what I’m told?
Because the clock keeps ticking
Let’s hope we don't grow old

Tell them the same thing that you told me,
Are you worth your weight in gold?
Should I practice what I preach man?
Should I just do what I’m told?
High court jury! Would you scream guilty?
I'd never claim somebody used me, I used to be so filthy

And are you happy when they tell you,
should it worry you at all?
Does it help you when they preach man?
Does it mend your broken bones?
You know they say that I'm a lightweight,
Well the worry weighs a ton
If you make it to the top, don't come and save me
’Cause I’ll be at the bottom having fun

With a little bit of shock, shock horror
A limp jumped body on the floor
A fucked up old school friend
And a kicked down door
And the boy can sing (the boy can sing), and the boy can dance (the boy can dance)
Misplaced a whole week man, left out the romance

(I believe) Love yeah, not what you've bought or sold
(I’m not a rat) This life it shouldn't be a race man
Don’t believe you make money then grow old
Don’t even accuse me, ‘cause I’ll go on the run
But I suppose it'd be easy where to find me,
‘cause I’ll be at the bottom having fun!

With a little bit of shock, shock horror
A limp jumped body on the floor
A fucked up old school friend
And a kicked down door
And the boy can sing (the boy can sing), and the boy can dance (the boy can dance)
Misplaced a whole week man, left out the romance

And I feel sorry for you man, I feel sorry for you man
I feel sorry for you man you’ve forgotten how to clap your hands

I feel sorry for you man (ahh)
I feel sorry for you man (ahh)
I feel sorry for you man you’ve forgotten how to clap your hands
I feel sorry for you man (ahh)
I feel sorry for you man (ahh)
I feel sorry for you man you’ve forgotten how to clap your hands
I feel sorry for you man (ahh)
Sorry for you man (ahh)
I feel sorry for you man you’ve forgotten how to clap your hands
I feel sorry for you man (ahh)
I feel sorry for you man (ahh)
I feel sorry for you man you’ve forgotten how to clap your hands

Tell them the same thing that they told me!

    My InterpretationIt's about living life to the full and having fun rather that take life to seriously and 'forgetting how to clap your hands'.

    Such a great track.
