Marianne
demo version (Living On A Bombsite):
Living on a bombsite
Guarding your door in a land where there's no property
After all my other girls let me down
I'd have thought you would care about me
Do you think your mother brought you up for this?
Baby
I know it wasn't easy with your sisters at home
And I thought you were better than this
Is it just a reaction against being so good-looking?
A popular and eligible Miss
Whatever you think, I'm still your father
Won't you kiss me?
I remember the days
I thought we couldn't lose
Running 'round the garden in your mother's shoes
Playing with your sisters
And bringing me tea
On a cold Autumn day
When the car had broken down
The best of my girls
Why'd you give it all away?
Leaving me on my own, alone
One so sad, one so tough
With you back at home, I would have enough
Living on a bombsite
Guarding your door in a land where there's no property
After all my other girls let me down
I'd have thought you would care about me
Do you think your mother brought you up for this?
Baby
I know it wasn't easy with your sisters at home
And I thought you were better than this
Is it just your reaction against being so good-looking?
A popular and eligible Miss
Whatever you think, I'm still your father
Won't you kiss me?
(In all my dreams) I'm still your father
(In all my dreams) I'm still your father
(In all my dreams) I'm still your father
(In all my dreams)
Holiday '80 version:
I take one look at you
It leaves me breathless
I see your dreams come true
You're not so restless, or light, or bright
Marianne
One day I might not care what happens to me
Your lack of sympathy fails to disturb me
I've got a life of my own
I remember the day
I thought we couldn't lose
Running 'round the garden in your mother's shoes
Playing with your sisters (I didn't see you were a grown up girl)
And bringing me tea (But is it life in a grown up world, is it life?)
On a cold autumn day (Someone's wife)
When the car had broken down
The best of my girls (I didn't see you were a grown up girl) [Oh how I hate the]
But you give it all away (But is it life in a grown up world) [The celebration]
Leaving me on my own (Is it life?) [I can't wait for the end of]
At home? (Someone's wife) [The celebration]
Add it up
All that's left is a space in a life that goes on as before
One day I might not care what happens to me
Your lack of sympathy fails to disturb me
I've got a life of my own
Add it up
All that's left is a space in a life that goes on as before
Marianne (Add it up)
All that's left is a space in a life that goes on as before
Marianne (Add it up)
All that's left is a space in a life that goes on as before
Marianne (Add it up)
All that's left is a space in a life at the end of the world
Marianne
alternate version:
I take one look at you
It leaves me breathless
I see your dreams come true
You're not so restless, or light, or bright
Marianne
One day I might not care what happens to me
Your lack of sympathy fails to disturb me
I've got a life of my own
(Ah ah ah) I remember the day
I thought we couldn't lose
(Ah ah ah) Running 'round the garden in your mother's shoes
(Ah ah ah) Playing with your sisters
(Ah ah) And bringing me tea
(Ah ah ah) On a cold autumn day

At home? [The celebration]
