You ain't been straight with me
Oh I know you've been hating on me
Still I don't know why you keep dropping by

I used to feel small
But now everything feels small
There are just no exceptions at all
I'm getting weary
No don't come near me

I can't remember a time when you haven't been here
Your breath on my neck and your words in my ear
I see you and I hear you
And I smell you everywhere

You're there when I sleep
You're there when I wake
You're there pointing out each mistake that I make
Yes I know you
Maybe I owe you
But if I were you
I'd be scared right now

Because I don't want you hanging round here anymore
No I don't want you hanging round
Why can't you understand
You ain't allowed here
Damn it all
I just don't want you hanging round

What was that feeling I felt?
Was it the squeeze of guilt?
Because I'm in up to the hilt
In all the milk I've spilt

I've been dreaming
Dreaming of better dreams
These old ones are showing their seams
Feel like I'm sinking
Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

I only stick around because I feel like I owe it
You can't move in this town for all the damn poets
And I've got no use
For their brand of muse

Now they're baying for blood
(Albeit politely)
There's a queue around the block
Once a day and twice nightly
I'm tired of this view
And that includes you too

Because I don't want you hanging round here...

Why don't you pack your bags and go
Now get out of town
Leave me alone

Because I don't want you hanging round here…

Louis Barabbas & The Bedlam Six Manchester

Between 2006-2016 the Bedlams relentlessly peddled their peculiar brand of Dirt-Swing, capturing the imaginations of every species of listenership, winning support from the likes of Supergrass, The Mighty Boosh, Har Mar Superstar, UB40, Mark Steel, The Hell’s Angels and BBC Radio, inspiring stage invasions, dancing in the aisles and a confused mixture of exhaustion and bonhomie wherever they went ... more
