What are words worth? What are words worth? Words

Words in papers, words in books – Words on TV, words for crooks – Words of comfort, words of peace – Words to make the fighting cease – Words to tell you what to do – Words are working hard for you – Eat your words but don’t go hungry – Words have always nearly hung me

What are words worth? What are words worth? Words

Words of nuance, words of skill – And words of romance are a thrill – Words are stupid, words are fun – Words can put you on the run – mots press?X, mots sens?X, mots qui disent la vâÝit?mots maudits, mots mentis,mots qui manquent le fruit d’esprit

What are words worth? What are words worth? – words

Its a rap race, with a fast pace – Concrete words, abstract words – Crazy words and lying words – Hazy words and dying words – Words of faith and tell me straight – Rare words and swear words – Good words and bad words

What are words worth? What are words worth? – words

Words can make you pay and pay – Four-letter words I cannot say – Panty, toilet, dirty devil – Words are trouble, words are subtle – Words of anger, words of hate – Words over here, words out there – In the air and everywhere – Words of wisdom, words of strife – Words that write the book I like – Words won’t find no right solution – To the planet earth’s pollution – Say the right word, make a million – Words are like a certain person – Who can’t say what they mean – Don’t mean what they say – With a rap rap here and a rap rap there-Here a rap, there a rap – Everywhere a rap rap

Rap it up for the common good – Let us enlist the neighbourhood – It’s okay, I’ve overstood – This is a wordy rappinghood, okay, bye.

A Catholic Education

 

Today’s Runner is the debut album from Scottish band Teenage Fanclub. Sounding more like Grunge than their later cleaned up power pop sound, influences of Dinosaur Junior and Neil Young when playing with Crazy Horse are evident here in the buzzing guitar, Heavy Metal sound of A Catholic Education.  Definitely my favorite from these guys. It will rock your world.

Enjoy
