Chumbawamba

Chumbawamba were a British alternative music band that had, over a career spanning three decades, played anarcho-punk, pop-influenced music, world music, and folk music. The band's anarchist politics exhibit an irreverent attitude toward authority, and the band has been forthright in its stances on issues including animal rights, pacifism (early in their career) and later regarding class struggle, feminism, gay liberation, pop culture and anti-fascism. more »

There are those 
Spend the night 
Under bridges 
Over by the river 

Down in the park 
Through the winter 
But there's a house 
That I know 

Safe and warm 
And no one ever goes there 
Down where the priests 
Bless the wine 

She's been born into the wrong time 
She keeps nonsense on her mind 
She's a poet  she's a builder 
She's as bored as bored can be 

She's a have not  she's a know all 
She knows just how to say yes 
She's skating frozen chaos 
'Til the no good gods are dead 

But sometimes in the dead of night 
Woken by the city lights 
She wonders how she keeps alive... 
This is the girl who 

Lost the house which 
Paid to the man who 
Put up the rent and 
Threw out the girl to 

Feather his own sweet home 
She's a clueless social climber 
Likes the wrong side of the bed 
She's a pick-me-up and she's a 

Drink-to-me 
In the company of friends 
She's tried every variation 
She's so common, she's so cold 

She's homesick for a future 
Can't stomach what she's told 
On every street in every town 
All her days are up and down 

At home among the 
Lost-and-founds... 
This is the girl who 
Lost the house which 

Paid to the man who 
Put up the rent and 
Threw out the girl to 
Feather his own sweet home 

Here's the good Samaritan 
Looks away and carries on
