Cock Sparrer - Is Anybody There? Lyrics




Well you won't hear us on the radio or Top Of The Pops
'Cos we're blanked
And I wonder what is that we've done
Oh he was only having some fun
What went wrong
I get the feeling that somebody's got it in for us all the way
And we've been called names that were not justified
And we never had the right to reply
Telling lies

Somebody somewhere must care
Hello hello is anybody there
Who'll lend us an ear

It's just amazing how little people know about us
Not a thing
But rumours carry more weight than facts
And they only contribute to the fact
That we take

Never mind the bollocks the truth is plain to see
If only people took the time to come and talk to me

The pressures mounting, everybody's waiting to hear at the end
But the more they try to sweep us away
Makes me all the more determined to stay
We won't go away

    East. London. Best

  2. soundeagle

    I love the privacy the scene had in those days, the scene grew more and more. It just proves that online you could be globally recognized but the spark will last for a short time, while something offline may start small however it will continue for years until it becomes substantially large.

    Well you won't hear us on the radio or Top Of The Pops
    'Cos we're blanked
    And I wonder what is that we've done
    Oh he was only having some fun
    What went wrong
    I get the feeling that somebody's got it in for us all the way
    And we've been called names that were not justified
    And we never had the right to reply
    Telling lies
    Somebody somewhere must care
    Hello hello is anybody there
    Who'll lend us an ear
    It's just amazing how little people know about us
    Not a thing
    But rumours carry more weight than facts
    And they only contribute to the fact
    That we take
    Never mind the bollocks the truth is plain to see
    If only people took the time to come and talk to me
    The pressures mounting, everybody's waiting to hear at the end
    But the more they try to sweep us away
    Makes me all the more determined to stay
    We won't go away

    It puts a lump in ya throat, What a waste of talent, They deserved so much more from the Music press. . . What did they ever do wrong !

    Tate LaBianca

    Ya Ya they didn't play the game. So what? They have a rabid following nonetheless. Big surprise-- the Fat Cats don't wanna throw money at the real talent

    soundeagle

    @Tate LaBianca something that James cannot wrap around his head yet, soon he will learn.

  15. Larz Gustafsson

    So you are declaring me insane? Well, to be honest I couldn't care less. Oi is just a rip off.

  16. Nihil Novum

    I think that started a discussion of punk labels, is more stupid that the labels. You need help to your fixations man. Cheers and fuck this idiot dispute.

    soundeagle

    punk was wounded by the music bizz, but the fans are the ones who finally killed it by discussing over labels and distinctions, punk can come back, but people are going to have to shut up and have fun.

  17. Larz Gustafsson

    "We've been in the street, so now we're a street rock band". You know, when I started out there was PUNK. Period. Then came all of those stupid labels...

  18. Nihil Novum

    Perfect. Then, you should know it. Cheers.

  19. Larz Gustafsson

    We were labelled Sweden's first Oi band. Just for the record.

  20. Nihil Novum

    Listen some bands, understand the lyrics, read some material, sharing time with your friends and after the past of the years, you'll know it. Cheers friend.-

  21. Larz Gustafsson

    Tomatoes - tomaaatoes...
    You are avoiding the main issue, mate.

  22. Larz Gustafsson

    "My Sharona", anyone...?

  23. Larz Gustafsson

    What makes a band a street band?

  24. Mark Aue

    Great !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  25. Nihil Novum

    Best Street Rock & Roll band EVER!
