Everybody But Myself

Mark E Smith
Crowd control
Crowd 
Crowd 
Crowd control
Crowd 
Crowd (Is that all you can say?)
Crowd 
Crowd 
Crowd control
Crowd control
I can't seem to plug myself in
Plug myself in
Plug myself in
Appliances are broken
I don't want to know
Fix them
Do me a favour - cut your lip and shut up

(MES vocals:)
Everybody but myself
Everybody but myself
Everybody but myself
Everybody but myself
Everybody but myself
Everybody but myself
Myself
Everybody but myself
Myself
Myself
I can double that (2)
C'mon - yeah yeah
Everybody but myself
Everybody but myself
Everybody but myself
Instant transfiguration
Everybody but myself
Everybody but myself
Nobody but myself
Everybody but myself
Transfiguration
Everybody but myself
Everybody but myself
Everybody but myself

Notes

1. This is a somewhat jazzy number that was retooled a year later on The Marshall Suite as "On My Own." Some of the lyrics are taken from "Plug Myself In."  The piano riff sounds a lot like "Strings of the Strings of Life" by Derrick May.

2. And he does, as Zack points out below.

"I can't double dare"? I've always heard that line as "I can double that." After that line, the vocals are double-tracked - clever!

He says "Nobody but myself" at least a couple times.

I don't know where these lyrics are from or if they track, exactly, but its confusing so I don't know if I can improve them. So I heard one "nobody," so I stuck one in approximately around about where maybe it goes.

The track is doubled before "I can double that" also. It might also be "I can double dare," I'm not sure, but yours is plausible.
