John Cooper Clarke:
The colour scheme is f***in' brown Everywhere in chicken town, The f***in' pubs are f***in' dull The f***in' clubs are f***in' full of f***in' girls and f***in' guys with f***in' murder in their eyes, A f***in' bloke gets f***in' stabbed waitin' for a f***in' cab, You f***in' stay at f***in' home, The f***in' neighbours f***in' moan, Keep the f***in' racket down This is f***in' chicken town The f***in' pies are f***in' old, The f***in' chips are f***in' cold, The f***in' beer is f***in' flat, The f***in' flats have f***in' rats, The f***in' clocks are f***in' wrong The f***in' days are f***in' long, It f***in' gets you f***in' down Evidently chicken town
I don't want to be in the band anymore. Unknown Pleasures was it. I was happy. I never meant for it to grow like this. When I'm up there, singing they don't understand how much I give and how it affects me. Now they want more. They expect me to give more. And I don't know if I can. It's like it's not happening to me, but... someone pretending to be me, someone dressed in my skin. Now we're going to America. I have no control anymore. I don't know what to do.
(touches a butterfly shape on the glass window) My heart leaps when I behold, a rainbow in the sky. So it was my life began, so is it now, I am a man. So it be when I shall grow old, or let me die. The child is the father of the man. And I could wish my days to be bound by natural piety. (sits down on the bed)
... Did you write that?
It's a shame Nick couldn't come.
He did say I could go out with you. He said it was alright, as long as I looked after you.
Did he now?
Well I didn't want you thinking we were going behind his back or anything.
That's a bit presumptuous don't you think?
I might not (have) wanted to go out with you.
(Ian looks at her, and they share a kiss.)
