Cheer Up, It Might Never Happen

This song is by Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine and appears on the album Post Historic Monsters (1993).

Cheer up, it might never happen
Drive by shootings on the streets of Clapham

Jackboots booting right across the map
And daddy's gone 'a looting
With his pistol packin' mama

And God didn't make the little green apples
With the Halloween grin and the shaving tackle
Another worrying thing for the grans to grapple
As the earth quakes, shakes and rolls and rattles on

And if the whole world is a stage
A kaleidoscope of lights and sound
You can take my Equity card away
And burn the theatre to the ground

Cheer up, it might never happen kid
Although I think it probably just did
The Christmas speech was a porno vid
A topless picture on the British quid
Jack and Jill went off the cliff
Contract killed in a lovers' tiff
While Ben and Bill smoke a comic spliff
Tom and Jerry built to a moronic riff

And if the whole world is a stage
A kaleidoscope of lights and sound
You can take my Equity card away
And burn the theatre to the ground

Sack the actors send the clowns
Back to practice paper rounds
Sweeping leaves and walking dogs
Daily deeds and bob a jobs
Sitting babies, salting snow
Helping ladies cross the road
Washing cars, recycling tins


Catching falling stars and things
Helping old folk, corner shop
Little things that mean a lot
A fairytale-like end to violence
Through jumble sales
And sponsored silence
Stop the world I wanna get back on
I want to learn to love the bomo
And have it tattooed across my gut
The immortal words cheer up
It might never happen to you kid
Although I think
It probably
Just did
