Razzmatazz
by Pulp

Album: Intro - The Gift Recordings (1993)
  • The trouble with your brother, he's always sleeping with your mother
    And I know that your sister missed her time again this month
    Am I talking too fast or are you just playing dumb?
    If you want I can write it down

    It should matter to you but aren't you the one with your razzmatazz
    and the nights on the town?
    Oh-oh-oh Oh you knew it and you blew it didn't you babe?
    I was lying when I asked you to stay now no-one's gonna care

    If you don't call them when you said
    And he's not coming round tonight to try and talk you into bed
    And all those stupid little things they ain't working
    No they aren't working at all oh

    You started getting fatter three weeks after I left you
    Now you're going with some kid looks like some bad comedian
    Are you gonna go out, are you sitting at home eating boxes of Milk Tray?
    Watch TV on your own, aren't you the one with your razzmatazz

    And your nights on the town?
    Oh-oh-oh And your father wants to help you doesn't he babe?
    But your mother wants to put you away
    Now no-one's gonna care if you don't call them when you said

    And he's not coming round tonight to try and talk you into bed
    And all those stupid little things they ain't working
    Oh they aren't working at all
    Oh well I saw you at the doctor's waiting for a test

    You tried to look like some kind of heiress but your face is such a mess
    And now you're going to a party and you're leaving on your own
    Oh I'm sorry but didn't you say that things go better with a little bit of razzamatazz?
    Na na nana na na na... and now no-one's gonna care if you don't call them when you said

    And he's not coming round tonight to try and talk you into bed
    Now it's half past ten in the evening and you wish that you were dead
    'Cause all those stupid little things
    No they ain't working, oh they aren't working at all. Writer/s: CANDIDA DOYLE, JARVIS BRANSON COCKER, NICK BANKS, RUSSELL SENIOR, STEPHEN PATRICK MACKEY
