Track Name: Upping The Workload
I'm upping the workload/now we're cooking; cooking with gas
Cloth ears, he said, listen here/make yourself useful for once in your insignificant life

I keep dreaming that my goose is cooked/no wonder I'm waking up hungry
I said "not if I see you first"/but I know that my maker's gonna find me
Track Name: Dear Tom
Dear Tom, I saw you at the gig last night/how's the band going cause I heard it's alright?/I heard you got a deal, I heard you just might make the grade

Dear Tom, well thank you for coming down/'cause I realise this isn't quite your part of town/and we're not exactly close so I appreciate the sentiment

Dear Tom, saw your girlfriend at the gig last night/how'd ya get to know her, do you hold her tight?/I've seen her working at the college shop day and night to fund her studies

Dear Tom, well I don't really know you well, at all/the crossing of our paths is small/but I think you're alright, for what it's worth/my opinion isn't currency, no I treat it like dirt... mucky dirt

Dear Tom, well I didn't mean to pry/I'm just making observations I'm an upstanding guy/oh so please tell me if I'm out of line/tell me and I’ll get straight back in line... love to be in line, so I'll get back in line

Dear Tom, I saw you at the gig last night, how’s the band going is it going all right? I heard you got a deal, I heard you just might, I heard you just might, I heard you just might...
Track Name: Bragger
Well it feels like I'm boasting when you're not having fun/oh baby I'm a bragger and I'm doing you wrong
It's no secret I can hide when I'm having a good one/and that's no laugh for you

I don't respond when I don't have an answer/don't question you when I don't understand you
But I'll always be your friend and I will always pander/I'll always have a shoulder for you/my shoulder's not a cold one for you

Well there's a brick in my head and it's right in the way/of the part of my brain that tells me what I should say
I tried to go to the doctor's but I forgot the way/I guess the brick is here to stay

Well you've thrown down your hand; put your cards on the table/I can't keep up with those you know I'm simply not able
But I've got two of a kind and you're always on my mind/you are always on my mind

Well it feels like I'm boasting when you're not having fun/oh baby I'm a bragger and I'm doing you wrong
It's no secret I can hide when I'm having a good one/and that's no laugh for you

I don't respond when I don't have an answer/don't question you when I don't understand you
But I'll always be your friend and I will always pander/
I'll always have a shoulder for you/
My shoulder's not a cold one for you/
I'll always have a shoulder or two/
I'll always have a shoulder for you
Track Name: Don't Be Nervous
Don't be nervous, don't be shy
They all like you; like you like I do
Yeah they like you like I do
Like you like I do
Yeah they like you like I do, like I do

Don't be jealous, like I've been
Jealousy's ugly, and it makes people mean
Thou shalt not covet - is that what somebody said?
But it's slightly more annoying when everyone around you/
Got to where they did with ease - no they didn't work hard
It was a gift, or so it seems

So we played poker with matches for chips
And I watched my money dwindle, oh I watched my money dwindle;
All of two pounds, oh I could've spent that
On two things from Poundland, from Poundland

Don't forget me, I know that you can
Don't throw darts at my effigy; remember I'm your man
And I'll do anything you want
Just ask me a few times, or write it in a large font, in a large font
Track Name: Molehill Mountain
Molehill Mountain is hard to climb, but once you’ve done it you’ll feel sublime/
I saw the majesty, I saw the grandeur; the panorama from the café at the summit!

Molehill Mountain, it's tough to beat, but once you've done it you'll feel complete/
I saw the majesty, I saw the grandeur; the panorama on the postcard I wrote you

All fine with me hope all is fine with you, swam in the lake, and in the river too/
Some of the fish I saw could have eaten you

I’m doing my very best to deal with the small, things that got in the way of progress and oh!/
Turns out the mountain was a molehill after all

Climb Molehill Mountain, up the pathway of success, navigate the precipice of happiness/
You’ll see the majesty, you’ll see the grandeur

Molehill Mountain: it's a holiday resort; the resting place for your obstructive thoughts/
Fare them well, wave them on their way
(Enjoy your stay)

Molehill Mountain is hard to climb, but once you’ve done it you’ll feel sublime/
I saw the majesty, I saw the grandeur, the panorama
Track Name: The Winter Sun
The winter sun is trying hard to be my friend - be my friend

In memory, some months ago, the sun would shine and I would glow

It's different, today I feel my temperament melt into golden syrup

The weather's fine, the day is young; so am I, but not for long
