lyrics

Oh my god we’re back again, inform our rivals!
We’ve got a tank of gas, we’re feeling suicidal
Driven up the pop charts, driven to the bank
We swam and we swam till we sank.
Trying to make the people of the world despise us
Playing dinky rhythms on our synthesizers
Complain about the future – complain about the past
You know that we’re not gonna last.

One stop sure shot, tip-top lift off
Oh no, let’s go! Audio quattro
Tip-top technorock programming the beatbox
Joy ride chart hype outta sight – bright lights!

Don’t wanna get a proper job
(repeat forever)

You know we’re not smart enough to sit in silence
As musicians we’re awarded a stupidity licence
Listen us moan and listen to us whinge
Listen to the lunatic fringe.
Annotate a list of everyone who’s annoyed us
Type it up and send the findings off to Reuters
Way off in the future we’ll even up the score with a reunion tour.

Go go cheekbones Marco Polo
Rewrite replay remix reSpray
Hard core gulf war 24 top drawer
Word change – third claim – rock ‘n roll hall of fame!

Don’t wanna get a proper job

I know I wasted my life away
I wish I’d won the lotteray
I wish I’d found the easy way
Married into money or married into fame
It’s been suggested I’m just too wary
Something ‘bout the nature of work that scares me
When it all gets just too hairy
I can stay in bed

Cos I don’t wanna get a proper job

Spray Lancashire, UK

Ric and Jen were members of 21st century pop terrorists The Cuban Boys, who topped John Peel's Festive 50 and the UK singles charts.

Their offshoot project Spray predicted the electropop boom, unfortunately much too early for them to cash in. They released two albums in 2002 and 2006.

In 2016 they released their first full length studio album in 10 years - 'Enforced Fun'.
