Tuff Life Booogie

Lyrics

(1)

You let me down again
And then your goth, slag brain says
Tuff life yeah baby!
Tuff life yeah baby!
Tuff Life yeah baby!

All you ever say
Is round revival boogie
It's a revival boogie
It's a
It's a small flat baby
Tuff life yeah baby!
Tuff life yeah baby!
All you ever need
Tuff life yeah baby!
Tuff life yeah baby!
Tuff life yeah baby!
Tuff life yeah baby!


With the balding man
You went to the Netherlands
And with a pernicious refrain
You return and say the same
Give it to me baby one more time
Give it to me baby one more time
Give it to me one more time
Give it to me one more time
Give it to me one more time! 


You forever say
Tuff life yeah baby!
Tuff life yeah baby!

Notes

1. "Booogie" is not a typo, unless it was one on the original single, but it seems more likely it was intentional. The lyrics are uncharacteristically conventional, probably intentionally so. The music is also conventional, but very catchy. Reformation calls these "some of the more obscure of Fall lyrics," but I don't think that's so. The only really puzzling thing is "All you ever say is 'round revival boogie'". ^

Presumably the reference to the Netherlands was brought about by The Fall's playing of 5 gigs in that country in 1987 (the song debuted live in the same year):
