Nice To Be Out - Lyrics by Stereophonics

You asked me so where have you been

Let me think now let me see
I stood once where Hitlers feet
had stood when he made his speech

In Nuremburg in thirty eight

When he tried to build the perfect race

He said black man ain't gonna run
Alongside our perfect sons

There was Dallas too, the library

The place they ended Kennedy

We stood where Oswald took his shot

In my opinion there's a bigger plot

Costners back and to the left

The picket fence the better bet

Paris came and summer went

The tunnel's now a flower bed

The famous turf that made Jeff Hurst

The vodka stops to quench my thirst

The Golden Gate stroke Alcatraz

And the fat man failed to get us passes

Jimmys corner in Raging Bull

De Niros jokes and bottled pills

Elvis tales from Mr Woodward

Any Richard Burton if you could

Tourists stare at tourist stops

One more picture one more God

Another top up for a change

It makes you think, it makes you sane

Talking more about yourself

There's a mirror too, have a check

Cheques are always passing through

Some depart but a lot come too

Restaurant talk or pick your teeth

You bite your tongue or chew your meat

Sleep or drink or drink to sleep

And one more week and we will meet

We'll talk of what we haven't done

Since we departed back a month

We argue why we have to shout

All in all it's nice to be out.
