Lyrics: 

I'm home, lost my job
And incurably ill
You think this is easy
realism
I've got a girl out there
I suppose
I think she's dancin'
I feel like Dan Dare lies down
I think she's dancin'
What do I know?

I am a D.J.
I am what I play
Can't turn around, no, can't turn around, no
I am a D.J.
I am what I play
Can't turn around, no, can't turn around, no

I am a D.J.
I am what I play
I've got believers
(Kiss-kiss)
Believing me.

One more weekend
of lights and evening faces
Fast food, living nostalgia
Humble pie or bitter fruit

I am a D.J.
I am what I play
Can't turn around, no, can't turn around, no

I am a D.J.
I am what I say
Can't turn around, no, can't turn around, no

I am a D.J.
I am what I play
I've got believers
(Kiss-kiss)
Believing me

I am a D.J., I am what I play
Can't turn around, no, can't turn around, no
I am a D.J., I am what I play
Can't turn around, no, can't turn around, no
I am a D.J., I am what I play
Can't turn around, no (kiss-kiss)

Time flies when you're having fun
Break his heart, break her heart
He used to be my boss and now he is a puppet dancer
I am a D.J. and I've got believers

I've got believers
I've got believers
I've got believers in me
I've got believers
I've got believers
I am a D.J., I am what I play
I am a D.J.

Lyrics: 

I feel a bit roughed up, feel a bit frightened
Nearly pin it down some time
Red sail action wake up in the wrong town
Boy, I really get around

Thunder ocean
Thunder ocean
Red sails take me
Make me sail along

Red sails and a mast so tall
Red sails
Red sails

Do you remember we another person
Green and black and red and so scared
Graffiti on the wall keep us all in tune
Bringing us all back home

Red sails
Thunder ocean
Red sails
Sailor can't dance like you

Red sail
Red sail action
Red sail
Some reaction

Action boy seen living under neon
Struggle with a foreign tongue
Red sails make him strong
Action make him sail along
Life stands still and stares

The hinterland, the hinterland
We're gonna sail to the hinterland
And it's far far far far far far far far away
It's far far far far faa faa da-da da-da da

Lyrics: 

Yassassin - I'm not a moody guy
Yassassin - I walk without a sound
Yassassin - Just a working man, no judge of men
Yassassin - But such a life I've never known

We came from the farmlands
To live in this city
We walked proud and lustful
In this resonant world
You want to fight
But I don't want to leave

CHORUS

Look at this - no second glances
Look at this - no value of love
Look at this - just sun and steel
Look at this - then look at us

CHORUS

Yassassin, Yassassin, Yassassin

If there’s someone in charge
Then listen to me
Don’t say nothing’s wrong
‘Cause I’ve got a love
And she’s afeared
You want to fight
But I don’t want to leave
Or drift away

Yassassin, Yassassin, Yassassin

CHORUS

Lyrics: 

Sometimes I feel
The need to move on
So I pack a bag
And move on
Move on

Well I might take a train
Or sail at dawn
Might take a girl
When I move on
When I move on

Somewhere, someone's calling me
And when the chips are down
I'm just a travelling man
Maybe it's just a trick of the mind, but
Somewhere there's a morning sky
Bluer than her eyes
Somewhere there's an ocean
Innocent and wild

Africa is sleepy people
Russia has its horsemen
Spent some nights in old Kyoto
Sleeping on the matted ground

Cyprus is my island
When the going's rough
I would love to find you
Somewhere in a place like that

Somewhere, someone's calling me
And when the chips are down
I stumble like a blind man
Can't forget you
Can't forget you
Feeling like a shadow
Drifting like a leaf
I stumble like a blind man
Can't forget you
Can't forget you

Lyrics: 

African nightmare one-time Mormon
More men fall in Hullabaloo men
I slide to the nearest bar
Undermine chairman
I went too far
Bent on a windfall
Rent a sony
Wonder how the dollar went down
Gotta get a world to Elizabeth's father
Hey ho, he wished me well

Seemed like another day
I could fly
Into the eye of God on high
(Repeat)

His burning eye will see me through
One of these days, one of these days
Gotta get a word through
One of these days

Asanti habari habari habari
Asanti nabana nabana nabana

Getting in mood for a Mombassa night flight
Pushing my luck, gonna fly like a mad thing
Bare strip takeoff skimming over Rhino
Born in slumber less than peace
Struggle with a child whose screaming dreaming
Drowned by the props all steely sunshine
Sick of you, sick of me
Lust for the free life
Quashed and maimed
Like a valuable loved one
Left unnamed

Seems like another day
I could fly
Into the eye of God on high
(Repeat)

Over the bushland over the trees
Wise like Orangutan
That was me

His burning eye will see me through
One of these days, one of these days
Gotta get a word through
One of these days
