Enemy, The - Be Somebody Lyrics




You know there's no such thing as a free meal, and they're ent no future in British steel
Know the only thing which really makes us smile is a joke and a laugh and a night on the tiles
No one ever gives you anything for free, unless you start sleeping with the bbc
Nigel got a job in the city, works in the department store
Slogging his guts out, all through the week
Looking forward to the weekend score
But tonight he's gunna be somebody, dancing his heart out with a local girl
She doesn't care whether he's got no money
There's more to life then they teach you at school
And tonight's he's gunna reach somebody, falling in love with a local girl
She's doesn't care whether he's got no money
She know he's got a heart of solid gold
Solid gold, solid gold

You know there's no such thing as a ticket to ride or satisfaction without a sacrifice
The only thing which is only true about life, is that the older you get the more you compromise
No ones gunna hand it to you on a plate, you gotta give give give before you take take take

Nigel got a job in the city, works in the department store
Thought his future was as good as sorted but he's happy in his little world
But tonight he's gunna be somebody
Dancing his heart out with a local girl, she doesn't care whether he's got no money
There's more to life then they teach you at school
And tonight's he's gunna reach somebody, falling in love with a local girl
She's doesn't care whether he's got no money
She know he's got a heart of solid gold
Solid gold, solid gold
Be somebody, be somebody, be somebody, be somebody
Be somebody, be somebody, be somebody, be somebody

Solid gold, solid gold, solid gold

    Anyone else hear the Beatles reference?

    You know there's no such thing as a free meal
    And there ain't no future in British steel
    No, the only thing that really makes us smile
    Is a joke and a laugh and a night on the tiles
    No one ever gives you anything for free
    Unless you start sleeping with the BBC

    Nigel got a job in the city
    Works in a department store
    Slogging his guts out all through the week
    Looking forward to the weekend score

    But tonight he's gonna be somebody
    Dancing his heart out with a local girl
    She doesn't care whether he's got no money
    There's more to life than they teach you at school
    And tonight he's gonna reach somebody
    Falling in love with a local girl
    She doesn't care whether he's got no money
    She knows he's got a heart of solid gold
    Solid gold
    Solid gold

    You know there's no such thing
    As a ticket to ride
    Or satisfaction without sacrifice
    The only thing that's really true about life
    Is that the older you get
    The more you compromise
    No one's gonna hand it to you on a plate
    You've gotta give give give
    Before you take take take

    Nigel got a job in the city
    Works in a department store
    Thought that his future
    Was as good as sorted
    But he's happy in his little world

    But tonight he's gonna be somebody
    Dancing his heart out with a local girl
    She doesn't care whether he's got no money
    There's more to life
    Than they teach you at school

    And tonight he's gonna reach somebody
    Falling in love with a local girl
    She doesn't care whether he's got no money
    She knows he's got a heart of solid gold
    Solid gold
    Solid gold

  42. SELLICK X

    Still listening

  43. Sir Nigel Farage

    Never seen the Ricoh so full

    infra white

    you have so! ...in a parallel world, not for away there is a sport called Rugby, played by The Wasps, & they fill the Ricoh half the f***ing season.

    baboonbrain91

    The Ricoh will be full and that's full of COV FANS when those waste of space called SISU decide to fuck off then they will be climbing back up the league again then hopefully the good times will be back! SISU OUT!

    infra white

    Hahaha! that sounded so desperate, I'd even wager my mortgage on such a "shabby claim" It's already done & dusted on where you lot are heading, sissie. So do urself a favour & kiss those last scraps of a shoddy F.C.'s paddock goodbye, while ye still can.

  44. Christopher Docherty

    i go on about the music and what they achieved i feel the same when i listen to the coventry express ahh ha the enemy absolutely brilliant.

  45. Guilherme Ferreira

    2017 :(

  46. Leobardo Sandoval

    I'm watching in 2017 :)

  47. B.I-S

    Great song!

  48. The Socially Awkward

    This band made a mistake by ending their career, the fans still wants them to exist

    Joe Winstanley

    Frost Vendetta media don't tho and they can't progress as a band nowadays tho without the media which is shit

    MrMaxadax

    bullshit. bands nowadays don't need anyone. it's not like the old days where record labels were the only platform music could exist on. have you looked at the internet lately?

    Steviemtothec

    read his interview why he packed it in. it nails it why they did. too many wankers to deal with in the music industry.

    PBL187

    Their careers are not over. Tom went solo, and Andy (bassist) joined Autopilot, who are good (nothing like The Enemy either, even his basslines are a bit different). Dunno what Liam (the drummer) is doing, but yeah, at least 2 of them are still going, just on different paths now

    PBL187

    @Steviemtothec You're (he's) right. Don't need to have ever actually been or tried to be a part of it to know that will never change. The music industry was invented by wankers, for wankers, and will forever be run by, and full of, you guessed it, Wankers!

  49. Charlie Greenhouse

    FA Cup on ITV 09/10 and FIFA 10

  50. spin brown

    Great gig last night in Newcastle,shame it's their farewell tour!

    pureding!

    I never went. seen them twice there and the last time blew me away. Didn't want to spoil the memory of it
    when we left the o2 there were loads of us just standing in the streets arms all raised and singing the chorus to "this song" was my favourite gig.

    STFC Liam

    spin brown went to the London one, can remember everyone singing 'This Song' down the tube. Absolutely sensational.

  51. TiltonRoad Birmingham

    82 villa fans wankers !

  52. Николай Данилов

    2:42 Roman Pavlyuchenko? xD

    Gary G

  53. Yasir Mahi

    i love this song man

  54. pureding!

    there's no denying it this band were not everyone's cup of tea but they were great to watch live and had some great songs to sing along to. if you've not seen them live goto their farewell shows and sing your heart out for them.

    Fin Jewell

    I'm going to their Bristol show this weekend! Can't wait for it, such a shame it's their last tour

    pureding!

    it is mate. they'll be back in 5 years doing a joint shed 7 and ocean cs tour

    Aiden Marsden

    pureding! Hope so!

    Greg Kiteos

    I saw them in 2007 when they were supporting Stereophonics.
