The Fall

The Fall are an English post-punk band, formed in Prestwich, Greater Manchester, in 1976. With an ever-changing line up, the group essentially consists of its founder and only constant member, Mark E. Smith, who has said "If it's me and your granny on bongos, then it's [the] Fall". First associated with the late 1970s punk movement, the band's music has evolved through numerous stylistic changes, often concurrently with changes in the group's membership. The Fall's music is characterised by repetition, an abrasive guitar-driven sound, and is always underpinned by Smith's often cryptic lyrics, described by critic Steve Huey as "abstract poetry filled with complicated wordplay, bone-dry wit, cutting social observations, and general misanthropy." more »

I hear you Telephone Thing listening in
I hear you Telephone Thing listening in

How dare you assume I want to parlez-vous with you?
Sorry to be so short with you 
But I'm tapped 
But I'm tapped 

I hear you Telephone Thing listening in
I hear you Telephone Thing listening in 

The use of and your smug advertisements
of your tendril ocean bed achievements does not 
justify your abuse of privacy piracy act 

I hear you Telephone Thing listening in
I feel you Telephone Thing listening in 

How dare you assume I want to parlez-vous with you?
You Gretchen Franklin nosey matron thing 

I hear you Telephone Thing listening in 
Sense you 
I hear you Telephone Thing listening in 
How dare you assume I want to parlez-vous with you?
You Gretchen Franklin nosey matron type 

Does the Home Secretary have the barest faintest inkling of what's going down? 
I hear you Telephone Thing listening in
I hear you Telephone Thing listening in 

The use of and your amug advertisements
Of your tendril ocean bed achievements does not justify your abuse of privacy piracy act 

I hear you Telephone Thing listening in 
I do you Telephone Thing listening in 

How dare you assume I want to parlez-vous with you
You Gretchen Franklin thing 

I hear you Telephone Thing listening in 
Sense you 
I hear you Telephone Thing listening in 
Sense you 
I hear you Telephone Thing listening in
I hear you Telephone Thing listening in
I hear you Telephone Thing listening in 

How dare you assume I want to parlez-vous with you? 
I'm tapped 
I hear you Telephone Thing listening in 
I HEAR YOU TELEPHONE THING
