What A Waster Lyrics - The Libertines

Review The Song (29)



What a waster, what a fucking waster
You pissed it all up the wall
Round the corner where they chased her

There's tears coming out from everywhere
The city's hard, the city's fair
Get back inside you've got nothing on
No you mind yer bleedin own you two bob cunt

When she wakes up in the morning
She writes down all her dreams
Reads like the book of revelations
Or the Beano or the unabridged Ulysses

Oh I really wanna know
So tell me, where does all the money go
where does all the money go
Straight, straight up her nose

And I never really liked it any way
sponsored links
So much preferred it the other way yeah

What a divvy what a fucking div
Talking like a moron, walking like a spiv
I was laying in bed paying my rent
Knocking on the door for something

That she lent her brother
Meanwhile from under the covers she says
Save me from tomorrow now, save me from tomorrow now,
Oh no, Oh no not me

And I never really liked it any way
So much preferred it the other way yeah
Never really liked it any way
So much preferred it the other way yeah

What a waster, what a fucking waster
You pissed it all up the wall
Round the corner where they chased her

There's tears coming out from everywhere
The citys hard the citys fair
Get back inside you've got nothing on
No you mind yer bleedin own you two bob cunt

What a waster, what a fucking waster
You pissed it all up the wall
Round the corner where they chased her

There's tears coming out from everywhere
The citys hard the citys fair
Get back inside you've got nothing on
No you mind yer bleedin own you two bob cunt

What a waster, what a fucking waster
You pissed it all up the wall
Round the corner where they chased her

There's tears coming out from everywhere
The citys hard the citys fair
Get back inside you've got nothing on
No you mind yer bleedin own you two bob cunt

i disagree | Reviewer: fadsg | 1/8/12

This is a great piece of poetry.
One commenter compares it to Oscar Wilde's poems, say it's not very good poetry because it's not verbose enough. If you think verbosity is what makes a poetry great, then I'll laugh at you, it is far from the most important part of a poem. Many of the world's greatest poems are written with elementary words. What makes a poem great is also the themes (and how relatable it is), the the rhythm and rhyme, and the story. What make this song lyrics great, among many things, is that it has great rhythms, and a very witty story, not to mention melody of the song itself is also great.

This is a good song. Not ''profond'' poetry but good for a pop song. It really hard to express lyricism in a pop song, because words must follow a rhythm and melody of a song. Rare are musicians who still menage to create really good poetry within a good song. Like Blixa Bergeld, (read his Sabrina or The Garden), serbian rock poet Milan Mladenovic, or Morrissey, Nick Cave, where in some songs you can find really deep lyrical quality, or in some traditional songs. Anyway R'N'R suppose to be a bit rough and honest.



merr | Reviewer: laura | 12/1/09

i don't see the point in trying to go around comparing everyone. people have their different opinons on who is better and what they look for in music/people/ just general life..
if you're just gonna listen to pete and think nahh, oasis are better or whatever then what's the point !
i respect pete so much and i have soo much love for his music. he lifts peoples spirits, makes sense in his music, talks about reality and is just amazing at what he does. that's my personal opinion and he has helped me through so much. he's inspired me to want to do better in life. if im feeling down i put on his tracks and everything seems that little bit brighter.
like i said everyone's gonna feel they have their own special artist.
instead of going around trying to compare just enjoy the music!



great | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/26/09

this is a great song! i wouldn't even begin to compare pete doherty to oscar wilde (whoever mentioned that one), but he is a really brilliant song writer and musician! him and carl together make an amazing band!



Pete | Reviewer: A Libertine | 9/26/08

"you people look at this man as a genius or a poet because either you dont read poetry yourselves or you dont understand poetry...(or youve started trying to read/understand it because pete likes it) but compared to lets say oscar wilde/keats/yeats/blake...dohertys words are so simple and normal and noway near genius."

Quote


This is totally true. BUT I think Pete Doherty its one of the goodest songs writer.



Iris your fucked | Reviewer: K | 7/25/08

Iris are you mental? Just because someone has an opinion doesnt make it a fact. Just becasue someone might think good charlotte are poets, doesnt mean they have actually writen poetry. Opinions dont matter, facts matter, weather they have really writen a poem matters and most importantly if they have WAS IT ACTUALLY A POEM ! lol man .....



whatever | Reviewer: Iris | 7/6/08

'okkk'
poetry is different for everybody you know? He had won serveral poetry contests so I think that does make him a poet now does it? I've got to admit, this song is not the moest poetic think he's written but 'Music when the lights go out' and 'lost art of murder' are. But whatever, who cares about that anyway? If someone thinks he's a poet, that makes him a poet.

hell, if somebody thinks Good Charlotte are poets, than THAT DOES make him poets, for one person yes, but that doesn't change that it's a fact.



re:alex | Reviewer: shite | 5/19/08

A wise man once said "an intellectual is one who says a simple thing in a difficult way, an artist is someone who says something difficult in a simple way." Yes, Keats, Yeats, beat yr fucking meat they were talented folk but using words beyond "simple" or "normal" alone does not make you a genius.

As long as the work has influenced someone it's served its purpose. Can't compare dead gay playwrights to stoned 21st century guitar players anyway.



so... | Reviewer: Stormy | 3/13/08

I think this song rocks.
And I don't care what anyone thinks of pete or any other libertine.
But I do think it's a little harsh what ya'll are saying to that alex kid.
I don't agree with what he put either, but so what...the kid has an opinion let him express it. Sure it's fine to disagree with him if that's the way you feel. But try not to be such an ass to the guy, he said he didn't think anything bad of pete he just doesn't the guy is a poet.



to alex | Reviewer: ee oi | 1/9/08

blah blah blah, i like fany poets and pete's words are not smart enough for me... just shut up alex, he's writing songs aimed towards average indie fans who wouldn't understand any of that fancy balls. he writes poetry that average people understands, does this not make him a genius? he can write good lyrics for everyone and put a good sound into it.. how many of your poets can do that. go harrass some nursery kids about how barneys not smart enough for them you ass



:] | Reviewer: amelia | 12/12/07

i totally disagree with 'okkk' because yeah oscar wilde and other poets do write good stuff, although they dont give such good insight into the lives of people other people tend not to understand such as drug addicts. he writes so well because he is one/has been one himself - you cant point blank compare him to natural poets 'cos he writes about something TOTALLY different - i mean, you cant compare butter with bread. songwriting is like poetry because it's a way of expression, so how can you say hes not a poet?? a poet himself could write songs, i mean oscar wilde wrote a play and he's a poet - in your opinion wouldn't that make him a scriptwriter? after all.. from your view poets CLEARLY can only write poems.



PETE is GOD | Reviewer: Luka_Brkljaca_ CROATIA | 11/23/07

He is fuckin great, who are all of you to judge him or criticse him?!! Ha?!!! He is living his life the way he wants it, his lyrics are great, fu.k everybody and rock on Pete! CROATIA has your back!!!



What a song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/7/07

it really is such a refreshing change to see that people like pete doherty can really capture the imagine of a nation! its just a shame that he's not apprciated and more than likely he wont be until he is gone...WHAT A SHAME

We're all libertines aren't we?
x



okkkk | Reviewer: alex | 11/7/07

i like how most of you who think pete is a genius cant even spell the word "genious" nice one! anyway, im not here to condemn the man, i like him, i think hes cool and a hero in every way, makes good music too!
BUT
he is NOT genius! nor is he a POET! you people look at this man as a genius or a poet because either you dont read poetry yourselves or you dont understand poetry...(or youve started trying to read/understand it because pete likes it) but compared to lets say oscar wilde/keats/yeats/blake...dohertys words are so simple and normal and noway near genius. but as i say i do like him, i dont think hes a prick or anything...just not a poet or genius. hes a musician and a songwriter, a very good songwriter.



pete :) | Reviewer: lisa | 11/1/07

pete doherty is such a fucking legend!!
how he is perceived in the media is totally wrong and so many people get the wrong impression about him before they actually listen to his music, watch any interviews, or even find anything out about him, and it makes me pretty sad.
hes so incredibly talented and its upsetting about his drug problems, but its not like their affecting his music, even now in the babyshambles, his music is still doing great.
he such a fantastic lyricist and a very talented writer and poet.
i could write forever about pete but this is already quite long so ill stop now and just say thats petes a legend.
