Album(s)Blood Brothers soundtrack lyrics

Mrs Johnstone
the jury found him guilty
sent him down for seven years
though he acted like they gave him life,
he couldn't stop the tears.
and when we went to visit him
he didn't want to know,
it seems like jails sent him off the rails.
just like marilyn monroe
his mind's gone dancing
can't stop dancing

they showed him to a doctor
and after routine test
a prescription note the doctor wrote
for the chronically depressed.
and now the tears have stopped
he sits and counts the days to go
and treats his ills with daily pills
just like marilyn monroe

they stop his mind from dancing
stop it dancing

what are y' doin'?

what? i'm takin' me tablet.

listen, Mickey i've told y' they're just junk.
you'll be home soon, Mickey, and you should
come off them.

why? I need... I need to take these.

listen, Mickey, you've...

no! see, he says, the doctor, he said.

what did he say?

he said, about me nerves an' how I get
depressed an' I need to take these cos they
make me better...

i get depressed but I don't take those. you
don't need those, Mickey

leave me alone, will y'? I can't cope with this.
i'm not well. the doctor said, didn't he, i'm not
well... I can't do things. just leave me alone Linda.

mrs johnstone
with grace for good behaviour
he got out before his time
the family and the neighbours told him
he was lookin' fine.
but he's feelin' fifteen years older
and his speech is rather slow
and his neighbours said
you'd think he was dead
like marilyn monroe
no cause for dancing
no more dancing...

where's me tablets gone, Linda?

Mickey you promised.

i know I promised but I can't do without them.

look. we've... we've managed to sort ourselves
this far but what's the use if

have we sorted ourselves out? do you think i'm
really stupid?


you sorted it out. you an' councillor eddie lyons.
now give me tablets...i need them.

an' what about what I need? I need you.
i love you.
