Faster, Billy and the Women! There's No Time to Lose!

by Billy and the Women

/
  • The historic first release from Billy and the Women. Features such live favourites as 'Supermarket Song', 'Files and Folders', and 'Less is not More', albeit in quite a demo-ey, homemade form. Lo-fi! That's it, call it lo-fi. Purchases and donations will fund actual recording equipment.

    Download now! Available to stream free, or downloadable in better quality in nice easy iTunes-ready MP3, big geeky lossless FLAC, or almost any other format imaginable. Includes hi-res artwork, lyrics etc. If you reeeeally don't want to pay, email me and I'll send you a copy. If you really want to pay more than £1, that's also fine.

    If you like what you hear, please share with your friends! Burn a CD (if the kids still do that), send someone the mp3s, whatever.

    You can email billyandthewomen@gmail.com too, if you like!

Track Name: Supermarket Song
----------------------------------------------------------

Nine to five taking shit from morons
I don't know what planet they've all come from!

From the middle-aged moaners to the football bigots
The customers are all fucking idiots!

I take a sickie to avoid them
If I had my way I'd destroy them!

From the middle-aged moaners to the football bigots
The customers are all fucking idiots!

----------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: Files and Folders
----------------------------------------------------------

My computer's got files and folders
It's got more and more as it gets older
One day it broke, but I know how to solder

It's got the latest operating system
And a developer preview of the next edition
And the market rival on a separate partition

I'll give you a list of what's inside
It's got DVD and a massive hard drive
And it's got RAM of the maximum size

The maximum size!

----------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: Jackpot
----------------------------------------------------------

You know, it isn't normal
To push for the sake of pushing
For the sake of pushing

YOU THINK YOU'VE HIT THE JACKPOT
BUT SHE'S FUCKING INSANE, AND YOU'LL REGRET IT!

Now call me old fashioned
But if this is a case of having certain holes filled
Then you don't need me

YOU THINK YOU'VE HIT THE JACKPOT
BUT SHE'S FUCKING INSANE, AND YOU'LL REGRET IT!

GO!

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

----------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: Beep
----------------------------------------------------------

I've got to make a call to you
Email or fax will never do
I dial the number and I'm through
I've got a private line for two!

EVEN WHEN I'M ON MY OWN
I CAN JUST PICK UP THE PHONE
AND USUALLY YOU'RE ON THE LINE

WHEN YOU'RE OUT OR FAST ASLEEP
I LEAVE A MESSAGE AT THE BEEP
AND EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE

The number you have dialled has been changed
The new number is...

Oh seven seven seven two
Eight nine one
Four five three
I love your voice, so please call me!

EVEN WHEN I'M ON MY OWN
I CAN JUST PICK UP THE PHONE
AND USUALLY YOU'RE ON THE LINE

WHEN YOU'RE OUT OR FAST ASLEEP
I LEAVE A MESSAGE AT THE BEEP
AND EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE

----------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: How I Won the X-Factor
----------------------------------------------------------

ONE TWO THREE FOUR!

----------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: Mess
----------------------------------------------------------

Girl, you're a mess
With your hormones

Girl, you're a mess
Stop having sex!

I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON
BUT THAT'S HOW YOU GET OFF

Boy, you're a mess
With your hormones

Boy, you're a mess
Stop having sex!

I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON
BUT THAT'S HOW YOU GET OFF

----------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: Ibuprofen
----------------------------------------------------------

Ibuprofen, ibuprofen
Ibuprofen, ibuprofen

You offer me aspirin,
but I put it in the bin!

Ibuprofen, ibuprofen
Ibuprofen, ibuprofen

Some people like paracetamol
But I disagree, fuck 'em all!

Ibuprofen, ibuprofen
Ibuprofen, ibuprofen

You offer me heroin (!)
Which is completely inappropriate

----------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: Less is not More
----------------------------------------------------------

I once met a guy
Who told me 'less' was 'more'
I don't think this man
Even knew who I am

You see, he was mistaken
I like some complication
We had a conversation
It only caused frustration

LESS IS NOT MORE!
THREE IS NOT FOUR!
THE ROOF IS NOT THE FLOOR!

His own endeavours
Could hardly be deemed a success
So who's this guy to tell me
That more is somehow less

There's no explanation
For this intimidation
There's no justification
For this strange equation

LESS IS NOT MORE!
THREE IS NOT FOUR!
THE ROOF IS NOT THE FLOOR!

----------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: We are Intelligent
----------------------------------------------------------

Oh No! And so it continues
We think! You do! We think! You do!
Someone told me that it's hard to be diligent
But don't be afraid, cause we are intelligent

The girls don't mind if they're being used
Cause they're making love, and that's all they wanna do
And the men don't mind if they're brainless and docile
Cause they've got tits and beer on a Friday

WE ARE INTELLIGENT
BUT YOU DON'T GIVE A FUCK

(awesome guitar solo)

Oh No! And still it continues
We think! You do! We think! You do!
Still I'm told it's so hard to be diligent
But don't be afraid, cause we are intelligent

And the girls don't mind if they're being used
Cause they're making love, and that's all they wanna do
And the m-m-men don't mind if they're brainless and docile
Cause they've got tits and beer on a Friday

WE ARE INTELLIGENT
BUT YOU DON'T GIVE A FUCK
WE ARE INTELLIGENT
BUT YOU DON'T GIVE A FUCK
