Line Up (Frischmann/Elastica)
Published by EMI Music.
This is the John Peel version. Other versions: album.

Justine: "About drivel heads (groupies). 'Drivel head loves the new band/knows them like the back of her hand/you can't see the wood for the trees/on your knees.' This is the original version of the first song we ever recorded."


drivel head wears her glad rags
she's got her keys money and fags
i know that her mind is made up
to get rocked

drivel head needs a new man
as only a drivel head can
he's a hormonal nightmare
so beware

another victim of line up in line
line up in line is all i remember
oh how their favours change
you could have been kinder
yes, yes, line up in line
line up in line is all i remember
oh how their favours change
you could have been mine

drivel head knows all the stars
loves to suck their shining guitars
they've all been right up her stairs
do you care?
no...

drivel head knows all the bands
knows them like the back of her hands
you can't see the wood for the trees
on your knees

another victim of line up in line
line up in line is all i remember
oh how your favours change
you could have been kinder
yes, yes, line up in line
line up in line is all i remember
oh how your favours change
you could have been mine
