The Boo Radleys

The Boo Radleys were an English alternative rock band of the 1990s who were associated with the shoegazing and Britpop movements. They were formed in Wallasey, Merseyside, England in 1988, with Rob Harrison on drums, singer/guitarist Sice Rowbottom, guitarist/songwriter Martin Carr, bassist Timothy Brown . Their name is taken from the character Boo Radley in Harper Lee's 1960 novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. Shortly after the release of their first album, Hewitt replaced Rob Harrison on drums and he was in turn replaced by Rob Cieka. The band split up in 1999. more »

You're pretty and you know it
You're stupid and you show it
If there's a soul behind your face at all
I'm struggling to see it

Now smile for the camera
You've got what they're after
Yes it's all you wanted
But it's that has suffer to suffer this

The best clubs in London you'll always be around them
But drinkin' ain't livin' and
Drinkin' ain't givin'
Nah drinkin's just drinkin's just drinkin'

My sister's father had a wife
Whose husband had a father
Who taught me how to live
But died all alone

And I wish that I was with him
I could tell him all the things that he's missed
And all the things that you think
When you think that you're alone

But, man, you can't see what's going on
At the minute you can do nothing wrong
Yes you are a fortunate son
But you won't fool the kids for long
