Live Bed Show
Perf. Pulp

Album: Different Class (1995, Island Records)

(Music: Pulp; Lyrics: Jarvis Cocker)


She doesn't have to go to work
but she doesn't want to stay in bed
'cause it's changed from something comfortable
to something else instead
This bed has seen it all
from the first time to the last
the silences of now
and the good times of the past
and it only cost ten pounds
from a shop just down the road
Mind you, that was seven years ago
and things were very different then
It didn't get much rest at first
the headboard banging in the night
The neighbours didn't dare complain
Oh, everything was going right
Now there's no need to complain
'cause it never makes a sound
Something beautiful left town
and she doesn't even know it's name
Now every night she plays a sad game
(ooh ooh ooh)
called "pretending nothing's going wrong"
(ooh ah)
but she knows
if this show was televised
no-one would watch it, not tonight
But seven years ago
La la lala lala la...
Now there's no need to complain
'cause it never makes a sound
Something beautiful left town
and she never even know it's name
[The following lyrics are also included sometimes in live performances: I've seen 
a bit of us and I only saw her say, that
I've never ever said "I know it's not too late" and I've never ever said
"It's only to going to go away, away", and I'm dying outside but it's just
always feeling wrong, No, No, oh god. I'm leaving tonight. I going home
and thats alright.]
She doesn't have to go to work
but she doesn't want
to stay in bed
'cause it's changed from something comfortable
to something else instead.
