lyrics

BP (Sam Whimpenny)

Hold it right there
This is not gonna work in the present tense
If I could choose
I would drop it for a while, if I had the sense

Only you can make decisions
Only you can make me see
If the crisis isn’t over
Then explain the rest to me. To me

This’ll put some colour back in your cheeks
This’ll get your blood pressure to what it should be
In my opinion

Spoken well sir
If I may say so like a gentleman
Desperation
Lends an orator’s tongue to the dumbest of us

Only you can part the meeting
Only you can set us loose
If the powder is still burning
Why don’t we just use the noose. The noose

This’ll put some colour back in your cheeks
This’ll get your blood pressure to what it should be
In my opinion

It’s an urge that’s deep within us
To protect ourselves you see
If they forge it when you’re with them
Then just think what they can do when you’re away

It’s a problem I’ll admit it
But your pity is a bore
There’s no need to be so bitter
It’s just life and nothing more. No more

This’ll put some colour back in your cheeks
This’ll get your blood pressure to what it should be
In my opinion
