"Catch Me" as written by and Bob/wiggs Stanley....
I heard she drove a silvery sports car
Along the empty streets last night
Hanging around with hairdos like mine
No, I haven't seen the kids for some time

Picked up her shoes from the red-brick stairway
Just like a harpsichord as she moves
And back upstairs at half past two
With a paper folded outside the loo

Rain falls like Elvis tears
Oh no, no sugar tonight
Out on the high streets
Dim all the lights now
Bright color tears again

[Chorus]
Baby, don't forget to catch me
Don't forget to catch me
Don't forget to catch me

Hold on princess, don't you think that it's time
On the platform with a drizzle in my eye

I had a friend from over the harbor
He said he stayed with a neighborhood girl
And sometimes when it won't go right
I can hear his voice inside me at night

Rain falls like Elvis tears
Oh no, no sugar tonight
Out on the high streets
Dim all the lights now
Bright color tears again

[Chorus]

Hold on princess, don't you think that it's time
On the platform with a drizzle in my eye

[Chorus]

Hold on princess, don't you think that it's time
The ticket in my hand,
The train pulls down the line

    General CommentThis is a cover (original Song songmeanings.net/songs/view/3530822107858630677/ Saint Etienne - Hobart Paving ).

    It was covered by the movie-band "Bandits", about 4 female German prisoners who form a band and try to escape Germany together. They replaced the name "Hobart Paving" with "Hold on, princess". This way, the song gets a whole new meaning.

    Instead of about marode infrastructure, the lyrics now sound like a woman who's protected life ("princess") is shattered and who now leaves it all behind and tries to start all over again. The lyrics by that totally match with the scenery of fleeing band members because they combine somewhat glamour and fame to the motive of travelling, leaving and last but not least, being persecuted ("catch me"). The phrase "catch me" shows that this is not the helpless damsel in distress as the word "princess" seems to evoke (in fact, the narrator is just referring to herself, taunting herself when feeling weak to regain strength). More likely, "catch me" is a demand to her persecuters, even provoking them to try harder to get her.
