Appetite
Prefab Sprout Lyrics


Please be careful is never careful
Till it hears the gun
She will always pay the bills
For the having big fun
He talks so well, what can you do,
It's pretty plain he means it too
I don't want to sell you lines,
I only mean to do you right
But I'm a simple slave of appetite,
I'm a poor slave of appetite

Hunger howls, hungers red,
Hungers stays till it's fed
Then it some h-h-how fades,
Then it somehow leaves your sight
Depending on it's appetite,
Depending on your appetite

So if you take - Then put back good
If you steal - be Robin Hood
If your eyes are wanting all you see
Then I think I'll name you after me
I think I'll call you appetite

Here she is with two small problems
And the best part of the blame
Wishes she could call him heartache
But it's not a boy's name

If you grow up to be, just like him, just like me
You're fighting for exclusive rights,
For honeymoons each sleepless night
In which case I'll call you appetite
Yes I think I'll call you appetite

So if you take - Then put back good
If you steal - be Robin Hood
If your eyes are wanting all you see
Then I think I'll name you after me
I think I'll call you appetite

So if you take - Then put back good
If you steal - be Robin Hood
If your eyes are wanting all you see
Then I think I'll name you after me
I think I'll call you appetite

Then I think I'll name you after me
I think I'll call you appetite

Prefab Sprout is one of the most underrated bands in the world. And Paddy McAloon is on of the greatest songwriters of all time. (but their videos always sucked a little bit). But still: Prefab Sprout saved my life!!!

@David Maybe less judgemental, I was born in 1969! I was being encouraging! If only thing I had to worry about back then was not asking the guys out I liked I would have considered myself blessed, Rather than the reality being I was worried how I would survive on my own when I was kicked out of the care system a few years later.

@David technically we're xennials and both far too young to like Prefab Sprout. I listened to this album over and over in the 90s when my friends were head over heels for Take That. Also 39 isn't old. We're still young... ish.

Most videos sucked when you think of it. The band would have to pay for everything.

Beautiful pop songs

It's rare for a video to affect me the way the song does, so I don't put as much emphasis on them, but I know what you mean. In my case it was Flight 19 by Phil Manzanera.

I'm 48 yrs/o , huge 80s music fan and I never heard of Prefab Sprout until last week. Unbelievable! This is soooo good. I haven't heard a bad song yet. When Love Breaks Down, Cars and Girls, The King of RnR, Johnny Johnny....ahead of their time.

Yes, that is hard to believe!

@Clementina Villarreal Totally agree.It's when the 80's went naff - and this lot personified that.All the songs sound like variations of the same song...

Only the cool kids liked Prefab and Simply Red during the 80's while the rest brood about the Cure, The Smiths and the Flock of Seagulls.
