Chumbawamba Love Me Lyrics

I'm an anarchist, I'm the anti-Christ
Well sort of not really
It's not big it's not clever
And I'm quite a reasonable fella
Your friendly uncle good with kids good ol' paternalist pop
Good cop bad cop good cop bad cop good cop good cop
I was a wannabe and wannabes don't know what they want to be
I needn't have worried 'cos the man upstairs was looking out for me
God gave me the finger with his free hand
Now I'm his left hand man
Hey punk don't call me Mac
My name is Johnny Trabant

[Chorus]
Love me, love me, love me, love me,
Love me, love me, love me, love me,
Take me, take me, seriously,
Love me, love me, love me, love me

They call me the great pretender
John Noakes was my mentor
I'm a walking talking ideas man
Here's one I prepared earlier
Stretch Armstrong and his rubber band
Edwin Meese and the sex police
Please Mister Postman post-post-modern deliver us from Elvis
Be-bop-a-lula my baby-baby does good culture yes
Now I found what I'm looking for I find myself in another fine mess
Someone muddied my waters
I lost my way but now I see
I O.D.'d on irony
I'll rediscover god for the next LP

[Chorus]

Bend me shake me anyway you want me whatever you want I'll be your heart's desire. Black and cuddly, you want love me, pop me cork watch me pop like bubbly. Hot or not you've got to use what you've got. Where's the weak spot, let me take a shot. What a turn on, does it feel lovely? Love me love me

Johnny Johnny what for art thou
How goes Victor Jara
I got a stadium-sized pro rata headache
Pretentious moi
The ghost of Eamonn Andrews smiling watching over me
I love it let's shoot it 'Johnny Trabba the movie'
I paid my dues, I sung the blues
I've done pain and personal hell
Pass me the phone I got calls to make
This will sell and sell
I'm as Bob Roberts to your Phil Ochs
Talking political
So love me, love me, love me I'm a liberal

[Chorus: x2]

Love me, love me, love me, love me,
Love me, love me, love me, love me,
Love me, love me, love me, love me,
Love me, love me, love me, love me,
Take me, take me, seriously,
Love me, love me, freeze-frame, love me
