# Punctured bicycle

0:00:120:00:15

# On a hillside desolate

0:00:150:00:20

# Will nature make a man of me yet?

0:00:200:00:24

# When in this charming car

0:00:260:00:30

# This charming man

0:00:300:00:34

# Why pamper life's complexity

0:00:360:00:39

# When the leather runs smooth on the passenger seat

0:00:390:00:45

# I would go out tonight

0:00:450:00:47

# But I haven't got a stitch to wear

0:00:470:00:51

# This man said it's gruesome

0:00:550:00:57

# That someone so handsome should care... #

0:00:570:01:03

# I found out

0:01:060:01:08

# How good it fee-ee-eels

0:01:080:01:13

# To have

-# I

-I thought I was dreaming

0:01:500:01:53

# But I was wrong, yeah yeah yeah

0:01:530:01:57

# Oh but I'm gonna keep on scheming

0:01:570:02:00

# Till I can make you Make you my own

0:02:000:02:05

# So you see

0:02:050:02:07

# I really ca-a-are

0:02:070:02:12

# Without you

0:02:120:02:15

# I'm nothing

0:02:150:02:17

# Oh-oh oh-oh

0:02:170:02:19

# Just one look

0:02:190:02:22

# And I know-ow-ow

0:02:220:02:26

# I'll get you

0:02:260:02:30

# Someday oh-oh-oh oh

0:02:300:02:34

-# I

-I thought I was dreaming

0:02:340:02:37

# But I was wrong, yeah yeah yeah

# Oh, but I'm gonna keep on scheming

0:02:410:02:44

# Till I can make you Make you my own

0:02:440:02:49

# Just one look

0:02:490:02:51

# That's all it took, yeah

0:02:510:02:52

# Just one look That's all it took... #

0:02:520:02:55

# ..You were made for me

0:02:550:02:58

# Everybody tells me so

0:02:580:03:01

# You were made for me

0:03:010:03:04

# Don't pretend that you don't know

0:03:040:03:07

# All the flowers in the field

0:03:070:03:09

# Were made to please the bees

0:03:090:03:13

# For the fishes swim to make the rivers run

0:03:130:03:17

# To the sea

0:03:170:03:19

# Every hand was made to hold another

0:03:190:03:22

# Tenderly

0:03:220:03:25

# When I kissed you on your lips

0:03:250:03:27

# I knew that you were made for me

0:03:270:03:31

# You were made for me

0:03:310:03:34

# Everybody tells me so

0:03:340:03:37

# You were made for me

0:03:370:03:40

# Don't pretend that you don't know

0:03:400:03:43

# La la la, la la, la la, la la

0:03:430:03:46

# La la, la la

0:03:460:03:49

# La la la, la la, la la, la la

0:03:490:03:52

# La la, la la, la la, la la

0:03:520:03:55

# La la la la la. #

0:03:550:03:58

# I went to a party at the local county jail

0:03:590:04:05

# All the cons were dancing and the band began to wail

0:04:060:04:11

# But the guys were indiscreet They were brawling in the street

0:04:120:04:19

# At the local dance at the local county jail

0:04:190:04:24

# Well, the band were playing And the booze began to flow

0:04:240:04:28

# But the sound came over on the police car radio

0:04:300:04:36

# Down at Precinct 49

0:04:370:04:40

# Having a tear-gas of a time

0:04:400:04:44

# Sergeant Baker got a call from the governor of the county jail

0:04:440:04:49

# Load up, load up, load up with rubber bullets

0:04:490:04:56

# Load up, load up, load up with rubber bullets

0:04:560:05:02

# I love to hear those convicts squeal

0:05:020:05:06

# It's a shame these slugs ain't real

0:05:060:05:09

# But we can't have dancin' at the local county jail

0:05:090:05:15

# Sergeant Baker and his men made a bee-line for the jail

0:05:160:05:21

# And for miles around You could hear the sirens wail

0:05:220:05:28

# There's a rumour goin' round death row

0:05:290:05:32

# That a fuse is gonna blow

0:05:320:05:35

# At the local hop at the local county jail

0:05:350:05:40

# Whatcha gonna do?

0:05:400:05:42

# Whatcha gonna do about it? Whatcha gonna do? #

0:05:420:05:45

# Ooh, wah-wah, ooh, wah-wah, ooh

0:05:580:06:01

# Ooh, wah-wah, ooh, wah-wah, ooh

0:06:030:06:06

# Been another blue day without you, girl

0:06:190:06:24

# Been another sad tear on my pillow

0:06:330:06:38

-# I've been thinking about you, girl

-All night long

0:06:390:06:43

0:07:010:07:06

# Been another story from those endless magazines

0:07:130:07:17

-# I've been thinking about you, girl

0:07:180:07:22

# Sad sweet dreamer

0:07:470:07:50

# But how was I to know

0:07:520:07:55

# That you would leave me walking down that road

0:07:560:08:07

# Been another hard luck story

0:08:110:08:14

It looks like he's just come out of Risley for the day, dunnit?

Plastic punks!

0:08:520:08:55

I want him to do something for me. Cos look at me now. I'm nothin'.

0:08:550:08:59

That's what punk is.

0:08:590:09:01

# You stir my natural emotions

0:09:030:09:05

# You make me feel I'm dirt And I'm hurt... #

0:09:050:09:08

People who are saying that I'm vile and obscene. Do I look vile and obscene?

0:09:080:09:14

# And if I start a commotion

0:09:140:09:16

# In love with someone Ever fallen in love

0:09:270:09:31

# In love with someone you shouldn't have fallen in love with?

0:09:310:09:33

# I can't see much of a future

0:09:350:09:38

# Unless we find out what's to blame What a shame

0:09:380:09:41

# And we won't be together Much longer

0:09:460:09:48

# Unless we realise That we are the same

0:09:480:09:52

0:10:450:10:48

# You shouldn't have fallen In love with? #

0:10:480:10:51

# This and that, they must be the same

0:11:080:11:11

# What is legal is just what's real

0:11:110:11:14

# What I'm given to understand

0:11:140:11:16

# Is exactly what I steal

0:11:160:11:19

# I wormed my way into the heart of the crowd

0:11:190:11:22

# I wormed my way into the heart of the crowd

0:11:220:11:25

# I was shocked to find what was allowed

0:11:250:11:28

# I didn't lose myself in the crowd

# Shot

0:11:360:11:38

0:11:380:11:41

# On the run

0:11:410:11:44

# To the outside of everything

0:11:440:11:46

# Shot

0:11:470:11:50

# By both sides

0:11:500:11:52

# They must have come to a secret understanding

0:11:520:11:57

# New offences always in my nerves

0:11:590:12:02

# They're taking my time by force

0:12:020:12:05

# They have to rewrite all the books again

0:12:050:12:08

# As a matter of course

0:12:440:12:49

Most of the dross that's around - and there are records which are better than most of the dross -

0:12:500:12:55

don't get played because they are unsettling.

0:12:550:12:57

They come from somewhere slightly deeper within the soul

0:12:570:13:01

than the level of a pure hit factory.

0:13:010:13:03

I think Cliff's latest single is a work of genius, a perfect pop song,

0:13:030:13:07

but this lot are doing the same kind of thing, they're using melody and rhythm in a hypnotic way,

0:13:070:13:13

but because it's slightly sinister and Gothic, it won't be played, which seems a shame.

0:13:130:13:19

# And she turned around and took me by the hand

0:13:310:13:34

# And said, I've lost control again

0:13:340:13:36

# And how I'll never know just why or understand

0:13:370:13:40

# She said, I've lost control again

0:13:400:13:42

# And she screamed out kicking on her side

0:13:430:13:46

# And said, I've lost control again

0:13:460:13:48

# And seized up on the floor, I thought she'd die

0:13:490:13:52

# She said, I've lost control again

0:13:520:13:54

# She's lost control again

0:13:550:13:57

# She's lost control

0:13:580:14:01

# She's lost control again

0:14:010:14:04

# She's lost control

0:14:040:14:07

# Well I had to phone her friend to state my case

0:14:440:14:46

# And say she's lost control again

0:14:460:14:48

# And she showed up all the errors and mistakes

0:14:490:14:52

# And said I've lost control again

0:14:520:14:54

# She expressed herself in many different ways

0:14:550:14:58

# Until she lost control again

0:14:580:15:00

# And walked upon the edge of no escape

0:15:010:15:04

# And laughed, I've lost control again

0:15:040:15:06

# She's lost control again

0:15:070:15:09

# She's lost control

0:15:100:15:13

# She's lost control again

0:15:130:15:16

# She's lost control. #

0:15:160:15:19

Wait your bloody wait your bloody lost and bloody found

0:16:100:16:13

Stuck in bloody Chickentown

0:16:130:16:14

The bloody pies are bloody old The bloody chips are bloody cold

0:16:140:16:18

The bloody beer is bloody flat The bloody flats have bloody rats

0:16:180:16:21

The bloody clocks are bloody wrong The bloody days are bloody long

0:16:210:16:24

It bloody gets you bloody down Evidently Chickentown.

0:16:240:16:28

Far from crazy pavements

0:16:320:16:36

The taste of silver spoons

0:16:360:16:39

A clinical arrangement

0:16:400:16:43

On a dirty afternoon

0:16:430:16:46

The faecal germs of Mr Freud

0:16:470:16:51

Are rendered obsolete

0:16:510:16:54

The legal term is null and void

0:16:550:16:58

In the case of Beasley Street

0:16:580:17:02

In the cheap seats where murder breeds

0:17:030:17:06

Somebody runs out of breath

0:17:060:17:09

Sleep is a luxury they don't need

0:17:100:17:14

A sneak preview of death

0:17:140:17:16

Belladonna is your flower

0:17:170:17:21

Manslaughter your meat

0:17:220:17:24

Spend a year in a couple of hours

0:17:250:17:28

On the edge of Beasley Street

0:17:280:17:31

Where the action isn't

0:17:330:17:35

That's where it is

0:17:360:17:39

State your position

0:17:400:17:43

No vacancies exist

0:17:430:17:47

An X-certificate exercise

0:17:470:17:51

Ex-servicemen excrete

0:17:510:17:54

Smiles and a baby dies

0:17:550:17:59

In a box on Beasley Street

0:17:590:18:02

In the kingdom of the blind

0:18:030:18:06

A one-eyed man is king

0:18:070:18:09

Beauty problems are redefined

0:18:110:18:13

The doorbells do not ring

0:18:130:18:16

A light, full burst, like a blister

0:18:170:18:20

The only form of heat

0:18:220:18:24

Where a fellow sells his sister

0:18:250:18:28

Down a river on Beasley Street

0:18:280:18:31

In the boarding houses and the bedsits

0:18:320:18:36

Full of accidents and fleas

0:18:360:18:39

Somebody gets it

0:18:410:18:43

Where the missing persons freeze

0:18:430:18:46

Wearing dead men's overcoats

0:18:480:18:51

You can't see their feet

0:18:510:18:54

A riff joint shuts opens up

0:18:550:18:58

Right down on Beasley Street...

0:18:580:19:02

As you can see, everything has just vanished.

0:19:020:19:05

The whole thing has been erased

0:19:050:19:07

from the face of the earth.

0:19:070:19:09

I feel great anger. I feel massive sadness

0:19:100:19:13

It's like I've had a complete loss of childhood because

0:19:130:19:16

although I've always lived in Manchester and

0:19:160:19:18

I've always lived relatively close to here, this part of Manchester.

0:19:180:19:22

Now, when I pass through here,

0:19:220:19:25

or even being here today, it's just so foreign to me.

0:19:250:19:28

That's quite sad.

When you're on an E, it feels like you love everybody.

It's just brilliant. Superb.

0:29:380:29:39

Drugs are dangerous. Don't take them.

They can kill you. That's the simple message.

Just don't take them.

0:29:460:29:48

More people have died from drinking and driving than anybody has off Es.

I think alcohol should be banned and Es should be...legalised.

# When they said I should feed my head

0:46:530:46:56

# That to me was just a day in bed

0:46:560:46:59

# I'll take my car and drive real far

0:46:590:47:02

# Now we're concerned about the way we are

-Used to live down there.

-That's where we used to live, down there.

0:48:270:48:30

This is where we spent our total childhood round here.

0:48:320:48:36

-Just knocking about round here.

-I used to drop loads of acid round the back, there.

0:48:360:48:41

I got caught shoplifting in that Co-op.

0:48:410:48:43

The magic mushrooms, laugh your head off round there.

0:48:430:48:48

Eddie Yates opened that chippy.

0:48:480:48:49

-That used to be a cafe. Remember that?

-There's the record shop.

0:48:500:48:54

Not as good as Sifters but it was all right.

0:48:540:48:57

Used to have some good old Wolf Tones records in there.

0:48:570:49:00

Over there, that's the students' area.

0:49:030:49:05

See that, there? That's me. See me?

0:49:050:49:09

# Hey country boy

0:49:140:49:18

# What are you sad about?

0:49:180:49:21

# Everyday you make the sun come out

0:49:210:49:24

# Even in the pouring rain

0:49:240:49:27

# I'll come to see you

0:49:270:49:28

# And I'll save you, I'll save you

0:49:280:49:31

# What do you care about?

0:49:350:49:38

# And she said this and that

0:49:380:49:41

# What do I mean to you

0:49:410:49:43

# I'll show you if you want the truth

0:49:430:49:46

# I can't remember

0:49:460:49:48

# I don't know how to tell you

0:49:480:49:51

# But I love you just the same

0:49:510:49:53

# How many eyes must a young girl have

0:49:580:50:01

# I know she makes you cry I know she makes you laugh

0:50:010:50:04

# I'll be good to you if I could I'd make you happy

0:50:040:50:06

# If I had a son I'd be good to my daddy

0:50:060:50:09

# Who loves you though? I bet it's not the same

0:50:090:50:12

# As your north country boy

0:50:120:50:17

# Hey, country boy

0:50:210:50:25

# What are you sad about?

0:50:250:50:28

# I think we'll work it out

0:50:280:50:31

# Even in the morning rain

0:50:310:50:34

# He'll come to see you

0:50:340:50:35

# Hope your feelings are the same

0:50:350:50:38

# How many ears must a young girl have

0:50:430:50:45

# I know she hears you cry I know she hears you laugh

0:50:450:50:48

# Itchy and Scratchy come runnin' up the alley

0:50:480:50:51

# If you'll be good I'll be good to your daddy

0:50:510:50:54

# Who loves you but I bet it's not the same

0:51:180:51:24

# What do I mean to you? I'll show you if you want the truth

0:51:240:51:29

# I threw it all away I don't know where I put it

0:51:290:51:34

# But I miss it all the same

0:51:340:51:36

# How many eyes must a young girl have?

David Beckham is rapidly discovering that life as a best-selling author

0:52:010:52:05

can be every bit as demanding as that of a top footballer.

0:52:050:52:08

Some of these fans have travelled hundreds of miles.

0:52:080:52:11

They queued for hours for a glimpse of their idol

0:52:110:52:13

and to buy the book in which he chronicles the first 25 years of his life.

0:52:130:52:18

He's my idol, really. He's a really good footballer and everyone loves him.

0:52:180:52:22

I went to see the game last night and he was really good.

0:52:220:52:25

We've got a ticket for the next one. Hopefully it'll be good.

0:52:250:52:28

He's gorgeous. He's a brilliant football player. I love him.

0:52:280:52:33

For someone apparently so ordinary, Beckham excites an extraordinary response from his fans.

0:52:330:52:38

Some of them found the experience of meeting him in person altogether too much.

0:52:380:52:43

# Four-letter word just to get me along

0:52:450:52:49

# It's a difficulty and I'm biting on my tongue and I

0:52:490:52:53

# Keep stalling, keeping me together

0:52:530:52:56

# People around gotta find something to say now

0:52:560:52:59

# Holding back, every day the same

0:52:590:53:02

# Don't wanna be a loner Listen to me, oh, no

0:53:020:53:06

# I never say anything at all

0:53:060:53:08

# But with nothing to consider They forget my name

0:53:080:53:11

# They call me her They call me Stacey

0:53:400:53:44

# I'm the last kid standing up against the wall

0:53:440:53:47

# Keep up, fall in These heels they keep me boring

0:53:470:53:51

# Getting glammed up and sitting on the fence now

0:53:510:53:55

# So alone all the time at night Lock myself away

0:53:550:53:59

# Listen to me Although I'm dressed up, out and all

0:53:590:54:04
