Trouble in the Message Centre
Blur Lyrics


I am the message center
Local and direct
Room to room, an operator
No calls today, dear, they'll just have to wait, dear
I call and I collect
So just strike him softly away from the body

You're made up too shiny today (in so much trouble)
Thoughts are just pissing away (in so much trouble)
In so much trouble

I am a manager
I am in control
As the local delegator
No calls today, dear, they'll just have to wait, dear
I offer no guarantee at all
So don't take it lightly you'll put yourself under

You're made up too shiny today (in so much trouble)
Thoughts are just pissing away (in so much trouble)
A new typeface, a new day (in so much trouble)
You can't remember ten minutes ago (in so much trouble)
Too much trouble

La, la-la-la-la
La, la, la, la
La, la-la-la-la
La, la, la, la

You're made up too shiny today (in so much trouble)
Thoughts are just pissing away (in so much trouble)
A new typeface, a new day (in so much trouble)
You can't remember ten minutes ago (in so much trouble)
It's too much trouble (la, la-la-la-la)
La, la, la, la
La, la-la-la-la
La, la, la, la
La, la-la-la-la
La, la, la, la
La, la-la-la-la
La, la, la, la
La, la-la-la-la
La, la, la, la
La, la-la-la-la
La, la, la, la
La, la-la-la-la
La, la, la, la

@devlinX Yeah, Total Tool ripoff. Or, is it that YOUR comment is underrated?

Tim Climie

@Yellow Jackboots You noticed the rank and file, too?

Yellow Jackboots

Under-rated? It never was. Enjoyed as part of the Parklife album
