Sample verses from Coming Over Clammy

SUCH A MESS   (Claire)

YOUR HAIR WAS ALWAYS SUCH A MESS
PINK EXTENSIONS, DREADLOCKS, BEADING
SO MANY YEARS OF HEAT AND STRESS
I'M SURPRISED YOUR HEAD'S STOPPED BLEEDING

EDGE OF HELL   (Chloe and Claire)

DON'T WANT HEAVEN,
DON'T WANT GENTLE
JUST WANT YOUR SOUL TO BLEED
AND YOUR HEART AS WELL

WOW!   (Chloe)

YOU WERE FETED AND RESPECTED, CALM AND SO COLLECTED
WINDOWS CLOSED AND SHUTTERS UP AND TOTALLY PROTECTED
BY YOUR ICE-COLD "KEEP YOUR DISTANCE" SELL-OUT SHELL OF A SHOW
BY YOUR ICE-COLD "DON'T YOU TOUCH ME" STINKING SHELL OF A SHOW
ONE LIVING HELL OF A SHOW!

BARGAIN BAB   (Claire and Chloe - aged 6)

MY ONE'S PRETTIER AND DEFINITELY TWISTIER
SHE'S MUCH MORE BETTERER AND NICER ALTOGETHERER
SHE'S BENDY, TRENDY, WIV HAIR THAT'S NEVER-ENDY
AND HER 'EAD SWIVELS ALL THE WAY ROUND.

THAT'S WHY WOMEN DREAM   (Chloe and Claire)

SO WOMEN DREAM AND DREAMING LEADS US ON
A DREAM OF WHERE WE MIGHT HAVE BEEN ,
IF WE'D NOT MESSED IT UP AT SEVENTEEN
WE DREAM AND DREAMING KEEPS US MOVING ON
AND TO THOSE DREAMS WE RAISE A GLASS
AND DRINK TO ALL THE YEARS THAT PASS, AS WOMEN DREAM
