    Now I'm a union man
    Amazed at what I am
    I say what I think, that the company stinks
    Yes I'm a union man

    When we meet in the local hall
    I'll be voting with them all
    With a hell of a shout, it's "Out brothers, out!"
    And the rise of the factory's fall

    Oh, you don't get me, I'm part of the union
    You don't get me, I'm part of the union
    You don't get me, I'm part of the union
    Til the day I die
    Til the day I die

    Us union men are wise
    To the lies of the company spies
    And I don't get fooled by the factory rules
    'Cause I always read between the lines

    And I always get my way
    If I strike for higher pay
    When I show my card to the Scotland Yard
    And this is what I say:

    Oh, oh, you don't get me, I'm part of the union
    You don't get me, I'm part of the union
    You don't get me, I'm part of the union
    Til the day I die
    Til the day I die

    Before the union did appear
    My life was half as clear
    Now I've got the power to the working hour
    And every other day of the year

    So though I'm a working man
    I can ruin the government's plan
    And though I'm not hard, the sight of my card
    Makes me some kind of superman

    Oh, oh, oh, you don't get me, I'm part of the union
    You don't get me, I'm part of the union
    You don't get me, I'm part of the union
    Til the day I die
    Til the day I die

    You don't get me, I'm part of the union
    You don't get me, I'm part of the union
    You don't get me, I'm part of the union
    Til the day I die
    Til the day I die

    Sheís got a smile that it seems to me, reminds me of childhood memories

    silver horses, run down moonbeams, in her dark eyes

    She told me come but I was already there

    Iíve seen a million faces, and Iíve rocked them all

    But I gotta get out, I gotta break out now, before the final crack of dawn

    She was more like a beauty queen, from a movie scene

    Rebel souls, deserters we are called

    Like a fool, I fell in love with you, turned my whole world upside down

    And as we wind in down the road, our shadows taller than our soul

    is this the real life, is this just fantasy

    we're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl

    On the National Express there's a jolly hostess
    Selling crisps and tea
    She'll provide you with drinks and theatrical winks
    For a sky-high fee
    Mini-skirts were in style when she danced down the aisle
    Back in '63 (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
    But it's hard to get by when your arse is the size
    Of a small country

    But they make it very clear, they've got no room for ravers

    I've always wondered about those lyrics.
    Is Lola glad that 'she' (Lola) is a man or is Lola glad that the singer (Ray Davies) is a man? Or both?

    If we are doing confusing lyrics then how about this mind bender from Billy Bragg.

    ďI was 21 years when I wrote this song,
    Iím 22 now but I wonít be for longĒ

    If he wrote it at 21, why does it say heís 22?

    Those lyrics are from Paul Simon's "The Leaves That Are Green" are they not?

    He's saying he wrote the song when he was at least a year younger - he's singing it right now while fast approaching his next birthday.
    Well, that's how I read it.

    From New England and the confusion is he's either a very slow writer or the song is unfinished.

    If I had written a song last year when I was say, 21 years and 11 months old, and I had then stuck it in a drawer. Today, a year later (I'm now 22 and 11 months old), I take the song out the drawer and sing it to you and say "I was 21 years when I wrote this song. I'm 22 now but I won't be for long - because I'll soon be 23"
    Can't see the confusion unless you're thinking he's taken 21 years to write the song?

    Not originally - Bragg "borrowed" the lyrics from Simon's song as he was a great fan of S&G ...

    "I was 21 years when I wrote this song
    I'm 22 now, but I won't be for long
    Time hurries on"
    .... Die spinnen, die Briten ....

    Kind of similar thing to (sorry, again) Pulp's 'something changed'.

    "I wrote the song two hours before we met
    I didn't know your name or what you looked like yet"

    Nice... but confusing

    Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
    None but ourselves can free our minds.

    Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone
    Little Joe was blowing on the slide trombone
    The drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang
    The whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang

    Alone here in the kitchen
    I feel there's something missing
    I'd beg for some forgiveness
    But begging's not my business
    And she won't write a letter
    Although I always tell her
    And so it's my assumption...

    Just what is it that you want to do?
    Well, we wanna be free, we wanna be free to do what we wanna do
    And we wanna get loaded and we wanna have a good time
    And that's what we're gonna do (away baby, let's go)
    We're gonna have a good time, we're gonna have a party

    Yeah, but you have changed your original song and are effectively writing a new one.

    He is either 21 and has said he is 22 or he is 22 and said he is 21.

    Anyway, probably not worth all this discussion and thanks for the info about S&G - I didnít know that, just love New England as a song.

    Where does it say I've changed the original?

    Ach, no matter, you're right. It's not worth taking this any further.
