The Soft Boys

The Soft Boys were a pop band during the punk era led by Robyn Hitchcock, whose initially old fashioned music style of psychedelic/folk-rock became part of the neo-psychedelia scene with the release of Underwater Moonlight.

 Struggling with Strings? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

I've got my mojo and I am a piece of the action Oh strings
Strings
Got every black dog that crawls through your undergrowth
Strings

Each time I see you I peel off another excuse
Strings
Father in heaven or father in purgatory, 
See what you see from the hill of the dead,
See into all of this little glass family, Strings
Oh Strings
Harmony ruins a bloody good racket,
And this little egg was distorted by mother, Oh Strings
Strings
I know I'm right but I just cannot argue,
Arguments make me blow up like a victim Oh Strings
Strings

Evil is the new enemy, evil is the new bad
Evil is the new enemy, evil is the new bad

Swing your partners round and round
Hanging just above the ground
Kiss me quickly wish me luck
Detonating in a ten ton truck
Love me tender on the roof
Afterwards there'll be no proof
Take your partner by the middle
Like a burger on a griddle
If you would retaliate
Just remember love is hate

Cut, cut

Mother is coming, 
She wants to be friends so the poison can get in you
She's got a map of you, she knows the pressure points

I wish that I was just paranoid
