The State Of Things
Reverend and the Makers Lyrics


While some sore heads will rue last nights endeavors
And make Sundays vow that they won't get so leathered
Dads shout at lads so they foul number 7
There's no need for fighting they're only 11
A little introduction to the state of things

What of the woman who stands by her fella
Despite the bruises brought on by the Stella
To cook and to clothe and to clean and to screw
Is not the sum total of all she can do

They claim that the threats high, oh do me a favor
Control you by fear so you don't know your neighbor
Tube station at midnight, shoot them on sight
Hearts beating faster on jubilee line

The football fans fight 'cause United's at home
Its futile as bald men fighting for a comb
Adam gives Keeley what Donna gave him
Keeley shags Richard then gives it to Jim

I'm making you aware of the state of things
A little introduction to the state of things
I'm aching to sing about the state of things
Bet they don't teach you at school about the state of things

And then there's the woman who's there in the station
Whose white lightning refuge is inebriation
Some wench on park bench contrasts to your cash
She's not gonna kill ya or give ya a rash

I'm making you aware of the state of things
A little introduction to the state of things
I'm aching to sing about the state of things
Because we're all run by fools that's the state of things

I'm telling you straight about the state of things
1 9 8 4 the state of things
It cuts me wide open the state of things
I am The Reverend and I'll tell you about the state of things

🎸REVEREND AND THE MAKERS - THE STATE OF THINGS - LYRICS:🎸

[Introduction]
While some sore heads will rue last nights endeavors
and make Sunday's vow that they won't get so leathered.
Dads shout at lads so they foul number seven
there's no need for fighting, they're only eleven.
They'll introduce you to the state of things... (music🎵)

[Verse 1]
What of the woman who stands by her fella
despite the bruises brought on by the Stella.
To cook and to clothe and to clean and to screw,
is not the sum total of all she can do.
They claim that the threat's high, oh do me a favor,
control you by fear so you don't know your neighbour.
Tube station at midnight, shoot them on sight,
hearts beating faster on jubilee line.
The football fans fight 'cause United's at home,
it's futile as bald men fighting for a comb.
Adam gives Keeley what Donna gave him,
Keeley shags Richard then gives it to Jim!

[Chorus]
I'm making you aware of the state of things,
a little introduction to the state of things,
i'm aching to sing about the state of things, bet they don't teach you at school about the state of things.

[Verse 2]
And then there's the woman who's there in the station,
whose white lightning refuge is inebriation,
some wench on park bench contrasts to your cash,
she's not gonna kill ya or give ya a rash!

[Chorus+Ending]
I'm making you aware of the state of things,
a little introduction to the state of things.
I'm aching to sing about the state of things,
because we're all run by fools that's the state of things.
I'm telling you straight about the state of things
1-9-8-4, the state of things.
It cuts me wide open the state of things, I am The Reverend and I'll tell you about the state of things.

The reality of Council estate life!

Roe Lee Blackburn Soldiers lyrics!! 😁😂🎉🎁🙌🙌✍😉🙈

Amelia Rose

It's a shame they don't have this version of the song on US Spotify (or this album).

But I love the live version better. You feel the bass, the drums, and the song building up. His voice is deeper too 😍💖🥰

Rebekka-Jayne Slater

Daniel Ley
