#32 Change

#32 Change – The Lightning Seeds

The genius that is Ian Broudie (and various loose configurations) is responsible for the Lightning Seeds and the slew of well-crafted singles that were released throughout the 90’s (let’s all forget about ‘Three Lions’ shall we?). ‘Change’ is the 8th of 25 single releases (by my counting) and was taken from the album ‘Jollification’. I think that it was about this point that Broudie put the actual band together (LS was originally him tooling around in he studio) so they could take the album on the road.

Lyrics

The world is full of fools
who never get it right
You don’t know what to do
so you do anything you like
[put your foot down and drive]
Oh you’re a silly thing
[put your foot down and drive]
You’re such a pretty thing
[put your foot down and drive]
You’re never going to be like all those fools
You’re coming out tonight
There’s nothing to lose
You’re going to give it all a try
Don’t ever change
Don’t ever change [never change]
No never change [never change]
Never change
[don’t ever change]
The world is full of fools
take wisdom to the wise
And thank your lucky stars
for coming out tonight
[put your foot down and drive]
Oh you’re a silly thing
[put your foot down and drive]
You’re such a pretty thing
[put your foot down and drive]
Don’t ever change
Don’t ever change [never change]
No never change [never change]
Never change
[don’t ever change]
When tearful eyes
Are open wide
They’re still to blind to see
A change in style
For a little while
Is only make believe
[put your foot down and drive]
Oh you’re a silly thing
[put your foot down and drive]
You’re such a pretty thing
[put your foot down and drive]
You’re never satisfied
So look for something new
There’s nothing to hide
And nothing you can do
Don’t ever change
Don’t ever change [never change]
No never change [never change]
Never change
[don’t ever change]
Oh you fool you’ve got me started
Oh you fool you’ve got me started
Oh you fool you’ve got me started
[Don’t you ever change]
Oh you fool you’ve got me started
[Don’t you ever change]
