My Friend Stan
(Noddy Holder & Jimmy Lea)

My friend Stan's got a funny old man
Oh yeah, oh yeah
He makes him work all night 'til he can't do it right
Oh yeah, aha
And from the way you blacked my eye,
I know that you're the reason why
And from the way you fix his tie
I see you're gettin' to him, gettin' to him

My friend Jack's got an ache in his back
Oooooh oh yeah
The doc said he'd be fine if he'd just take his time
Ohh oh, ooh
And from the way you blacked my eye
I know that you're the reason why
And from the way you fix his tie
I see you're gettin' to him, you've been gettin' to him - kinky!

And from the way you blacked my eye
I know that you're the reason why
And from the way you fix his tie
I see you're gettin' to him, you've been gettin' to him

My friend Pete says his body is weak
Oh yeah, aha
He told me he can't sleep and his temperature's steep
Oh yeah, woho
And from the way you blacked my eye
I know that you're the reason why
And from the way you fix his tie
I see you're gettin' to him, you've been gettin' to him,
You've been gettin' to him, you've been gettin' to him
Oh yeah!

My Town
(Noddy Holder & Jimmy Lea)

Gotta find some way outta this town tonight
There's a hot shootin' mama gonna crack your skull on sight
She keeps hanging onto your tail, makes it hurt and makes you wail
You been hidin', you been achin', you're ready to fight
This ain't your town, this is my town
This ain't your town, this is my town
Get on your way, get on your way, get on your way, now

She gotta you hooked, you really couldn't stand the pace
She was free for me, but I mentioned it just in case
I been through all that lovin' before, so many times I lost the score
You been hidin', you been achin', you're ready to fight (get ready)

This ain't your town, this is my town
This ain't your town, this is my town
Get on your way, (get on) get on your way, get on your way, now

She keeps hanging onto your tail, makes it hurt and makes you wail
You been hidin', you been achin', you're ready to fight

This ain't your town, this is my town
This ain't your town, this is my town
Get on your way, (get on) get on your way, (go on), get on your way, now
Get on your way, now (,come on, get on)
Get on your way, now
