Deciphering the lyrics to the early unreleased tracks

Post by Marky Dread »

Going to attempt to decipher the lyrics to those early unreleased tracks.

"I Never Did It" / "I Don't Want Your Money"

I prefer The latter title as I think the first one should be "I Never Made It"

Taken from the version from the Roundhouse Sept 5, 1976

Seems to be a song about rejection from a rich girlfriend.

Looking in the mirror everyday
Through the meanest teeth decay
I could of been a million youths
For you to be a different girl

I feel sick at the restaurant
And I know it's good- bye
I wiped spaghetti from my mouth
As you paid the bill as you always do

I think I better take the cake
Go to the different meeting with him
I turn up there without you
Take the pain, yes I do

I used to lie at your daddies house
for months oh yeah
I asked for you to move to my slum
A thousand pounds a year, loud and clear

Another tenant takes a piss
What's the difference in the lift
I'll take West you take East
Then you say you can't feel

You think I need you
You think I want to
I don't want your money ( no, no)

I'm sick of you but I come down neat
But I look a cunt
When I have a bath I look my best
Then I say aaaahhhh
I never made It!

Forces have been looting
My humanity
Curfews have been curbing
The end of liberty

Do we have a repository of the best versions of these? I had a comp but realized it just has "You know what I think about you (or whatever the hell it's called)" on it three times.

Well there's the 100 club gig I remastered a couple of months back. And the Roundhouse gig I'm working on which might get an upload tomorrow.

"repository" = My brain/my PC.

"Suppository" = my arse

D'you know that you can use it?
