  1. I have run away from the one thing that I ever made / Now I only wish that I could show you, wish I could show a little soul A Little Soul
  2. If we get through this alive / I’ll meet you next week, same place, same time Bar Italia
  3. Sing along with the common people, sing along and it might just get you through Common People
  4. No, I don’t care if you screw him just as long as you save a piece for me Do You Remember The First Time?
  5. Your house was very small, with wood chip on the wall / When I came around to call, you didn’t notice me at all Disco 2000
  6. My favourite park’s a car park, grass is something you smoke, birds is something you shag / Take your year in Provence and shove it up your arse I Spy
  7. Don’t bother saying you’re sorry / Why don’t you come in? Smoke all my cigarettes again Like A Friend
  8. We’d like to go to town but we can’t risk it / Oh cos they just want to keep us out / You could end up with a smack in the mouth just for standing out Mis-Shapes
  9. I kept thinking of you and almost walking into lamp-posts / Why’s it so hot? Sheffield: Sex City
  10. You are hardcore, you make me hard / You name the drama and I’ll play the part This Is Hardcore
