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 »

Outsider 
You see me  you hear me 
There are millions who think just like 
Me 

Creepy 
Crawling 
What a wonderful world
A loose door jam  a light left on 

The oldest national lottery 
Enter Johnny Go Darkly 
Come to spoil my party 
Smell of faeces lingers 

Echo of light fingers 
Cold comfort blankets 
Steeped in creeping anger 
Flatfoot comes poking 

Compounding my misery 
Grinding pestle and mortar 
Adding insult to injury 
If only this, if only that, 

If only in my guts 
See my life before my eyes 
Trampled underfoot 
Creepy crawling 

All the creeps go creepy crawling 
Same thing every night 
How can stealing candy from a 
Baby 

Seem alright? 
What a wonderful world
Corvino, carrion crow 
Skulking with his mobile 

Slippery peat-bog eyes 
Stick-on smiley smile 
Small print like quicksand 
Not a wooden leg to stand on 

Sinking through my stomach 
The ground beneath me gone 
Free-fall, call Ophelia 
Clutching at straw 

Mixed with bloody feathers 
From scruff of neck of crow 
Johnny go! Johnny gone! 
Too much drink in your 

Tum-tum-tum 
See this finger, see this thumb 
See this fist and watch it come 
Creepy crawling

All the creeps go creepy crawling 
Same thing every night 

How can stealing candy from a 
Baby 
Seem alright? 
What a wonderful world
