I been people watching again
I think they watch me too
There's a new girl at the coffee house
She's got first day blues
She's got red hair and a motorbike
And lime green shoes
A mo hair hat, and a summers dress
And black tattoos

And then she fly away
In her high heel feet
And a fire dress
And she's throwing things
That took her time to save it up
And buy what's special
Then she look around
And sees what's left
And it's nothing much
Nothing precious at all
Nothing precious at all

Gonna drink herself to sleep tonight
And that's nothing new
She goes out almost nine, every night
And gets high as the moon
She takes photographs of American cars
Where she went to school
She likes fireworks and candlelight
And fake bad news

And then she fly away
In her high heel feet
And a fire dress
And she's throwing things
That took her time to save it up
And buy what's special
Then she look around
And sees what's left
And it's nothing much
Nothing precious at all
Nothing precious at all
Nothing precious at all

Is she a loner or a mother's girl
That's up to you
She got fine lines round her tired eyes
And they're painted blue
She could sleep around with anyone
If she wanted to
Gotta go my time is up right now
Got stuff to do

I have midnight blue & lime green Nikes... & I like 'em. Listen, any guy who pays close attention to what a woman is wearing and then writes & sings about it is o.k. in my book.
now, play some DELfonics, and you'll own my soul, at least until the song's over.
Kim Carnes and Bryan Adams had a baby...and named him Stereophonics
Crap Crap Crap. I'll be on Soma FM's Secret Agent while waiting for this bowel to pass.
"....I LIKE the Wizard of..., er, I mean I LIKE Stereophonics!" An 8.

Funny that you should mention the Rod Stewart thing... At an acoustic Show in New York 2 years ago Kelly Jones the singer told the crowd that a lot of people tell him that he sounds like Rod & as a joke he played a cheesy Rod Stewart Song... Pretty funny stuff..

If only the "singer" had taken more cough syrup before coming into the studio. Bob Dylan's voice is pleasanter. I have to mute this boring, irritating selection. Maybe the "singer" will lose his voice forever and all copies of this will spontaneously combust.
Hey, the name of the album is kinda like "Carpet Crawlers" : "We've got to get in to get out..."

Stereophonics' cover of 'Handbags and Gladrags' sounds more like Rod Stewart than Stewart himself. The Radio One morning DJ in Dubai was guaranteed to play either Rod or Stereophonics at least once an hour, and I can't say I didn't enjoy it, though maybe I'm a bit ashamed of enjoying Rod's sappier stuff.
Tell me about it. I've been hearing it on Virgin UK online radio and it's stuck in my head like burning oil. Not the most cheerful song on earth to have on your mind when you're trying to work out. GOOD song, though...

Mandolin Wind is one of my fav RS songs. His old stuff was excellent!! This does sound like a young Rod

Resembles Everclear to me, but not in the good way.
Yeah. It's a bit of a non-song, innit?
Good enough. A solid background piece.
'Nothing Precious At All' - I couldn't agree more. :P
Plod, plod, plod, ...... not a great song.
It's a yawner.
Huge Stereophonic fan! Keep em coming
Less smoking, more vocal lessons.
These guys opened for Sarah Mac...and Pete Yorn on Wednesday at the Boulder...cool show! All acoustic show..pretty sweet :)
keep playing
