E102 03:39
I'm so happy love has come around I'm so happy about the girl I found I feel like some one's favourite meal No sweeteners no additives, the flavour is real Go Back. I can't go back Go Forward. I must go forward Go back. I can't go back to living like I did before I'm so happy love has come around I'm so happy love has come around I'm so hap-hap-hap-hap-happy that you have come around And around and around and around and around

Every word you speak knocks me off my feet I couldn't wait to touch your little ass, your body tastes so sweet Well the disco boy loves his disco girl And the rock 'n' roll boy loves his rock 'n' roll girl And the punk loves his punkette And the mod loves his modette But I don't care about fashion what I need is passion No I don't care about her style for what I love is what's inside So let the disco boy have his disco girl Let the rock 'n' roll boy have his rock 'n' roll girl Let the punk have his punkette And let the mod have his modette Because I don't care about what she wears I'm just happy that she cares No I don't about her style for what I love is what's inside Every word you speak knocks me off my feet I couldn't wait to touch your little ass, your body tastes so sweet

Your Class 02:33
There are other girls in your class but none of them compare with you And there are other boys in the neighbourhood but none love you like I do So if I can't be with the girl I love should I love the girl I'm with? No if I can't be with the girl I love should I love the girl I'm with? And what you do, what you do is breaking my heart in two But I'll never get too tired of you Don't say we're through, don't say we're through Because that could not be true And I'll never get too tired of you There are other fish in the sea but I won't pull them in And there are other girls in the competition but none of them can win So if I can't be with the girl I love I won't love the girl I'm with No if I can't be with the girl I love I won't love the girl I'm with And what you do, what you do is breaking my heart in two But I'll never get too tired of you Don't say we're through, don't say we're through Because that could not be true And I'll never get too tired of you

Sorry if I scared you, made you feel uneasy It's just that I adore you Sometimes I don't hide it well That day you saw me staring I really didn't mean to It's just that I adore you it won't go away And when I'm alone I call you on the phone I hang up every time I know that you've guessed it's me I won't do that anymore, you have my word for sure I can wait forever I'll leave you alone Unless that is you've changed your mind You did it before • And there was the time before Unless that is you've seen the light You've started to miss my arms around you in the night Open your eyes I'll make you smile You won't realise I've here all the while Open your eyes I'll make you smile you won't realise I've been here Unless that is you've changed your mind You did it before and there was the time before Maybe you'll see, see what I see And you'll change your mind right in the nick of time I can wait forever for him

Right across the street I saw you walking You were with some guy looked like you were talking about me It doesn't pay to lie in bed with other guys I thought you said you were in love with me While I'm asleep I bet you're out dancing You're with another guy and you're both laughing about me It doesn't pay to lie in bed with other guys I thought you said you were were in love with me Don't smile at other guys

Stardate 02:14
My girlfriend is an alien from another world She's far too nice to be earthling girl Her heavenly body is from outer space She couldn't be a member of the human race Beautiful from outer space You make this planet a better place Beautiful creature from outer space You make this planet a better place to live My girlfriend is an alien from another world She's far too nice to be an earthling girl Her good looks are from out of this world I want a close encounter of the third kind of her Beautiful from outer space You make this planet a better place Beautiful creature from outer space You make this planet a better place to live
7.
Come Clean 03:51
Sometimes you feel so self conscious And embarrassed by the way that I look But girl I don't just love your cover I'm in love with the whole of the book So don't feel guilty when I touch you When you undress don't try to hide What's so wrong with loving your body when I love you so much inside Temples are made for worship, you were made to be adored And you know i want to be there So won't you let me open your doors And don't feel guilty when I touch you When you undress don't try to hide What's so wrong with loving your body when I love you so much inside I love you so inside

She says she's ordinary but look in her eyes She says she's ordinary but look at her smile Falling in love with a friend may not have been clever But when I first kissed that girl it made me quiver There's beautiful girls in films and in magazines But none have her way of smiling it just has to be seen Falling in love with a friend may not have been clever But when I first kissed that girl wanted to kiss her forever It ended up with both us feeling bad It ended up with me just making her sad • But what I'm I supposed to do it's hard to stop When I love her and want her I'm always thinking of her She says she's ordinary but it's a lie She says she's ordinary but look in her eyes People told me stay away I wasn't that clever and she's so extraordinary I want to know her forever

There is always someone standing on your feet But tonight let mother nature be your guide Does anyone see the point in being Does anyone see the point in being alone When the anger in your stomach turns to fear Remember when your life was at its start Does anyone see the point in being Does anyone see the point in being alone When the missiles leave their silos we shall die As they leave a trail of blood across the sky Does anyone see the point in being Does anyone see the point in being alone
11.
I want to introduce you to somebody I think you should know Someone I've been keeping deep inside next to my soul We don't look any different but we don't think the same And he'd like to know you well but I keep hurting you And you keep hurting me And when I said I loved you that wasn't me That was another person who I used to be There's so many people I want to love in so many ways I want to be loving them through the nights As well as the days But that doesn't mean I love you less than I did before But sometimes I feel I need to escape When I keep hurting you and you keep hurting me And when I said I loved you that wasn't me That was another person who I used to be And when I said I hated you that was a lie You'll always be part of me girl and you know why
12.
Life Goes On 02:55
She was born and life goes on But I took it so wrong On her breath too much time is left to say the wrong words And I know the reason why But it still won't make me lie to her Life goes wrong but the show goes on Though we said so long On my breath the taste is left to write the song words And I know the reason why But it still won't make me lie to you All that will be left of our love is this song

I want your love the day before tomorrow The day before tomorrow I want you I want your smile to take away my sorrow To take away my sorrow I want your mouth But you won't give it to me Do I have to pay for something that should be free No you won't give love to me And that's not very fair because you see I want your heart I want it always I want it always, I want you I want your laugh to chase away my bad days To take away my sad days I want that laugh But you won't give it to me Do I have to pay for something that should be free No you won't give love to me And that's not very fair because you see I want your love the day before tomorrow The day before tomorrow I want you I want your love the day before tomorrow I want everything and I want it now
15.
Stupid 02:33
They thought that I was stupid when I fell in love with you Because they saw the way that you made me cry They must have said he's stupid when I fell in love with you Because they found out the way that you'd lied Dumb dumb dumb am I Dumb dumb dumb am I They think I'm stupid because I fell in love with you But they never saw the way that you smile I don't think I'm stupid because I fell in love with you It was something that I had to try Dumb dumb dumb am I Dumb dumb dumb am I?
16.
I wanna fall in love I wanna fall in love My heart's looking for some fun And I don't want to stay the lonely one I'm going to fall in love And get that boy I've been dreaming of I don't want to be alone I'm going to get that boy and keep him for my own I've had so many sad affairs but I've wiped them out my mind It doesn't matter if he's dumb or smart just as long as he is kind Is he out there and will he care I wonder if he's passing by when I'm walking by the street I wonder if I'll catch his eyes and if he's looking out for me Is he from my town, can love be found
17.
When I saw her I dived right in Forgot that I couldn't swim but now I can plainly see She was too far out for me And I can't seem to keep my head above Can't do the things a guy ought to do Well now I see another girl, she's got me head in a whirl Pull me out before I sink I'm all washed up and I'm in the drink And I can't seem to keep my head above Can't do the things a guy ought to do If you go down to the ocean don't go in too deep Don't let the water level rise above your feet

We're all students of human nature Let's show some respect to Mother Nature Let's run naked through the playing fields Let's get naked from our heads to our heals We're students of life, students of love Students of life, students of love Students of life, students of life Students of life, students of love Your dress brings out the best in you Your dress brings out the beast in me If I could have a little taste of you You could have a whole feast of me We're students of life, students of love Students of life, students of love Students of life, students of life Students of life, students of love
20.
Help somebody is anybody there? Help me somebody doesn't anybody care? I could have been someone but i was much too scared Help me somebody doesn't anybody care? Help me somebody before the door is closed Help me somebody i need love the most I've lost my way and my dreams have turned into ghosts Help me somebody I need love the most Help me now somebody where do the lonely go? Help me somebody, help me please before it's time to go Help me somebody i need a helping hand Help me somebody don't you understand? Help me now somebody where do the lonely go? Help me somebody, help me please before it's time to go Does anybody know? Help me somebody i need a helping hand Help me somebody don't you understand?

Oo-sha sha oo-sha sha sha da I was so tired of singing the same old song I'd given up when you came along Then suddenly my world was alive again I found a new voice, I'd found a good friend We make sweet music me and you I want to sing a new song with you Oo-sha sha oo-sha sha sha da I want to play with you all through the night I hear your voice, see your smile and I feel alright Singing with you I am whole again I never want this show to end We make sweet music me and you I want to sing a new song with you Love's sweet music will see us through I want to sing my song with you Life can sometimes be real hard But songs can soothe a troubled heart Ba ba ba ba Love's sweet music will see us through I want to sing my song with you Love's sweet music Love's sweet music Ba ba ba ba Songs can soothe a troubled heart and I don't want this show to stop

about

There are few figures as representative of the Scottish pop sound as Duglas T. Stewart and his BMX BANDITS (who have had members of THE VASELINES, TEENAGE FANCLUB and THE SOUP DRAGONS pass through their midst). They have a cult status, are admired by all kinds of artists (even the Gallagher brothers and the very Kurt Cobain were part of their fan club); their way of using pop as a medium to transcend styles, epochs and trends has been an example to follow for generations of bands like TEENAGE FANCLUB, NICE MAN, THE WEDDING PRESENT, CAMERA OBSCURA and many more.

Here at Elefant, we have always greatly admired them and have tried to show what we admire about them through a catalog full of hard to find songs, singles and EPs, which have been published on independent labels half the world over. Which is why we are doubly congratulating ourselves now. First, for being able to increase our catalog with one of their albums. And second, because this album lets us recover many of those lost songs (some even unreleased). Yes, “The Rise & Fall of BMX Bandits” is a compilation. It has those great hits like “Disco Girl”, “Your Class” and “Whirlpool”, but it’s not a greatest hits album. It has hard to find songs and B-sides, but it’s not a compilation of B-sides and hard to find songs. It is simply a BMX Bandits album, with songs chosen by Duglas T Stewart himself, a new way of dealing with the best pop possible. And even the impossible, too.
