Cold Chisel - No Plans Lyrics




I’m standing in the sun, smoking a cigarette, no plans
I’m a primate
I feel no pain got no i-phone
Pluggin’ into my brain I’m hangin’ alone
In the sun, smoking a cigarette, no plans

Yeah fuck you!
I’m just standing on the corner, smokin’, taking in the wider view
I’m on location I got rivers of the dead
Heading down to the station I’m thinkin’ about goin’ back to bed
‘Cause I can, no plans

If I had a plan I’d take it down and hock it
Then someone else’d own my time
Then I’d be polishing another man’s rocket
Instead a hangin’ here, looking for a rhyme

In the sun, smoking a cigarette, watching the traffic jam up
Thinkin’ about gettin’ me a black coffee in a take-away cup
Maybe tippin’ in a little medicine
From what I got hidden in a paperbag
Standing in the sun, smoking a cigarette, no plans

[solo]

If I had plans I’d be tempted to sell ‘em
Then someone else’d own my time
Then I’d be working on another man’s plans
I’d never get to pay for the crime, to tell him

Shut the fuck up!
Don’t ever let ‘em catch you talkin’ to yourself
Let alone in rhyme
I’m standing in the ruins, looking at the end
Of all mankind, leaning back again
In the sun, smoking a cigarette, no plans

Yeah I’m standing in the ruins, looking at the end
Of all mankind, leaning back again
In the sun, smoking a cigarette, no plans.

    I don't honestly believe I have ever heard such a tinny sounding snare drum before, it is totally disgusting. A snare drum is supposed to sound like a CRACK for heaven's sake, not sound like someone is hitting a friggin sardine can. Apart from that it's awesome. But 'Chisel, for heaven's sake sort out that tinny sounding snare drum. Of all Cold Chisel songs I have never ever heard such a foul sounding treble-like snare drum.

  14. Barry Devlin

    I feel Jimmy is singin better than ever, like a previous post best shit for ages

  15. Tony Feagan

    It just staggers me that these guys can take such a long time off and then come back and produce this album. Chisel have been responsible for so many great rock songs and ballads over the years (and I have been a fan since 1977) and then I hear this opening track 'No Plans'. I am putting it down in the top 3 rock songs I have ever heard. Being an oldie like the Chisel members, the lyrics beautifully reflect today's younger generation. Don Walker again proves what a genious he is.
