Revue 
    (Difford/Tilbrook) 

    WARNING: These lyrics are unconfirmed and may be inaccurate. They represent the best attempt at deciphering the song we have yet to see. 
     

      You make-believe celebrities 
      Taking bows in front of me 
      In your dickey-bow ties 
      In your dickey-bow ties 

      Pick your nose beside the stage 
      Jesus Christ has come of age 
      So you've had a good cry 
      So you've had a good cry 

      Reach out there's people in the stalls 
      A Blackpool season isn't very small 
      Reading commercials on TV 
      Is just as good as a bad Page 3 review 

      We all know it's so hard for you 
      Revue 
      We all know it's so hard for you 

      In the dressing room you find 
      Telegrams with good luck lines 
      So nice to be known 
      So nice to be known 

      The curtain falls so that's the end 
      You hit the bottle once again 
      So you've had a good crowd 
      So you're one of the crowd 

      Reach out there's people in the stalls 
      A Blackpool season isn't very small 
      Reading commercials on TV 
      Is just as good as a bad Page 3 review 

      We all know it's so hard for you 
      Revue 
      We all know it's so hard for you 
      Revue 
      We all know it's so hard for you 
      Revue 
      We all know it's so hard for you

  • FROM THE ALBUM: Cool For Cats.
  • COMPILATIONS: Excess Moderation.
  • From the Excess Moderation sleevenotes. Glenn: From Cool For Cats which was our first proper pop record, a song about a fading attraction distinguished by Jools' fine synth playing. Chris: The theatre world seemed to be of another class, all I could do was to observe it from the end of my pencil.
