"Advert" as written by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James and David Rowntree....
(Food processors are great!)
It's six o'clock on the dot and I'm half way home
I feel foul mouthed as I stand and wait for the underground
And a nervous disposition doesn't agree with this
I need something to remind me that there's something else

You need a holiday, somewhere in the sun
With all the people who are waiting, there never seems to be one
Say something, say something else
Say something, say something else

Advertisements are here for rapid persuasion
If you stare too long you lose your appetite
A nervous disposition doesn't agree with this
You need fast relief from aches and stomach pains

I need a holiday, somewhere in the sun
With all the people who are waiting, there never seems to be one
Say something, say something else
Say something, say something else

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11,
12, 13, 14, 15, 16

(You can have it on the rates
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, a one week only special offer.)

You need a holiday, somewhere in the sun
With all the people who are waiting, there never seems to be one
Say something, say something else
Go on!
Say something, say something else
Say something, say something else
Say something, say something else

    General CommentA pretty good song to play and sing,I should say.It's also one of the many cynic songs in "modern life is rubbish".It's cool and speak what I often want to say in my heart.Damon is absolutely a talent in writing this sort of songs which satirize the way of living in the modern life in a humorous and exaggerated way. The songs come into my heart and help vent the emotion hidden behind.

    My InterpretationThis song sounds like its about wanting to Take a vacation away from the city He's tired of the city and wants a holiday. He even says: It's sixo clock on the dot and i'm halfway home I feel foul-mouthed as i stand and wait for the underground or advertisments are here for rapid persuation if you stare too long you lose your appetite and a nervous disposition dosen't agree with this you need fast relief from aches and stomach pains. So in other words he's sick and tire of these rediculouse advertisments and needs a holiday. I too sing that song when i have a rough school day:)
