Confidence is a preference for the habitual voyeur of what is known as

And morning soup can be avoided if you take a route straight through what is known as

John's got brewer's droop he gets intimidated by the dirty pigeons, they love a bit of him
(Parklife)
Who's that gut lord marching, you should cut down on your porklife mate, get some exercise

All the people
So many people
And hey all go hand-in-hand
Hand-in-hand through their parklife
Know what I mean?

I get up when I want except on Wednesdays when I get rudely awakened by the dustmen
(Parklife)
I put my trousers on, have a cup of tea and I think about leaving the house
(Parklife)

I feed the pigeons, I sometimes feed the sparrows too
It gives me a sense of enormous well-being
(Parklife)
And then I'm happy for the rest of the day safe in the knowledge there will always be a bit of my heart devoted to it

All the people

And they all go hand-in-hand
Hand-in-hand through their parklife

Hand-in-hand through their parklife

So many people
And they all go hand-in-hand
Hand-in-hand through their parklife

Blur

Blur are an English alternative rock band. Formed in London in 1988 as Seymour, the group consists of singer/keyboardist Damon Albarn, guitarist/singer Graham Coxon, bassist Alex James and drummer Dave Rowntree. Blur's debut album Leisure (1991) incorporated the sounds of Madchester and shoegazing. Following a stylistic change influenced by English guitar pop groups such as The Kinks, The Beatles and XTC, Blur released Modern Life Is Rubbish (1993), Parklife (1994) and The Great Escape (1995). As a result, the band helped to popularise the Britpop genre and achieved mass popularity in the UK, aided by a chart battle with rival band Oasis in 1995 dubbed "The Battle of Britpop". more »
