(1) THIS IS THE SOUND (Clint Boon)

Come alive with The Clint Boon Experience!
It’s always summertime with The Boon Army!
Come alive with The Clint Boon Experience!
The Boon Army is so cool
This Boon Army thing is so cool!
We bring you, once again
Something cool, something you need
Something you will come to love
Something which will make your life a happier place
The Boon Army bring you The Sound
This is the cool sound, the now sound

It’s the Space Opera sound
Music for now, music forever

This is the time, this is the place
Now, now is the time that we’ve been waiting for

(2) LIFE IN TRANSITION (Clint Boon)

I seem to think that it was 17
When it hit me in the face
Like a stealth bomber screamin’
Inspiration is a neighbour of mine
See him knockin’ on my door
From time to time
And, should he ever stagger back this way
I’ll mark the day in my dearest diary
‘cos you were the one who swore
By the crucifix you wore
He’d be back no more
Life in transition, life in transition
I never felt myself arrive in this position
I guess it comes to each and every, all
You can’t get ahead
You can’t get to the ball
And at 23, and at 24
I really thought my life
Was holdin’ nothin’ in store
I would’ve gone away a long time ago
But niggle nag niggle
At the back of my headbone
He don’t live far from my place
Wherever I go I’m like an alien
Y’know you’ve never seen a thing in your life
‘til you’ve seen a Happy Monday on high
You were big five-o
And I was six two
I want to spend the rest of time with you
We’ve got Presley on the stereo
The one man in the world
Who makes us want to go-go
We see our lives in transition
But inspiration’s my neighbour
So I spin around the diner
And do a little groovin’
With the woman I love
Last thing I remember
Layin’ on a bed
With the kids by my side
Turnin’ slowly to the wife and saying
“It’s barbed wire rippin’ at my very spine
But this is transition
The ultimate transition
Baby don’t let anybody ever
Take the tune away from you!”

(3)CLIMBING BACK INSIDE THE DREAM (Clint Boon)

Strange, the way I’m feeling inside
Nothin’s gonna get in my way
Nobody’s gonna spit in my face
I love the way I feel
You know how long it’s been
It’s been too long, long, long, long, long, long,
Long, long, long, too long, too long
Oooh, I gotta get back there
Take me, take me, take me
Take me slowly
Don’t give me c..chemical warfare!
Climbin’ back inside the dream
It’s where I’m wantin’ to be
And it’s strange
I took a look inside my head
It’s all red, red, red, red, red, red, red, red,
Red, red, red, red, red, red, red, red,
Red, red, red, red, red, red, red, red,
Red, red, red, red, red, red, red, red,
Oooh, I gotta get back there
Take me, take me, take me
Take me slowly
Don’t give me c..chemical warfare!
Climbin’ back inside the dream
Oooh, I gotta get back there
Take me, take me, take me
Take me slowly
Don’t give me c..chemical warfare!
Climbin’ back inside the dream
It’s where I’m wantin’ to be
Oooh, I gotta get back there
Take me, take me, take me
Take me slowly
Don’t give me c..chemical warfare!
Climbin’ back inside the dream
Oooh, I gotta get back there
Take me, take me, take me
Take me slowly Climbin’ back inside the dream
Don’t give me c..chemical warfare!
Climbin’ back inside the dream
Climbin’ back inside the dream
Climbin’ back inside the dream
Climbin’ back inside the


(4) COOL VACATION (Clint Boon)

When you feel that your miserable life has not got
No snap, no crackle, no crackle, no pop!
When you feel that your life has got nowhere to go
When you feel you could sue the f**kin’ radio show
I’m gonna buy myself on a cool vacation
Gonna buy myself on a cool vacation
Gonna buy myself on a cool vacation
In the sunshine
There’s A Stereo Phonic shoutin’ on in your headphone
There’s a stereo car radio screamin’
Outside your front door
There’s only one way out, only one way you can go
Ain’t no punk rock record gonna save your life, no!
I’m gonna buy myself on a cool vacation
Gonna buy myself on a cool vacation
Gonna buy myself on a cool vacation
In the sunshine
It was nice to get your message
Even though I was wrong number
For all that you are carin’ I could be six feet under
It’s clear that your miserable life has not got
No snap, no crackle, no crackle, no pop!

(5) EARWORM (Clint Boon)

Oh, cool friend of mine
I figure it’s about the right time
To tell you ‘bout the guy that you sent ‘round
Who’s eatin’ away at the back of my mind
And I can hear ba ba dn ba ba ba!
Ba dn ba ba dn ba ba ba!
Ba ba dn ba ba ba!
Ba dn ba ba dn ba ba ba!
I wrote a song about a rainy day
I never meant to change your world
Sometimes reality gets me that way
And all I really got to say
Is as I do what I do to you
Do what you do to me too, oo-ooh!
As I do what I do to you
Do what you do to me too
Hey, my little earworm
I can hear you workin’ around in my head
And eatin’ at my nervous system
I can hear you workin’, workin’, workin’ away
And I can hear ba ba dn ba ba ba!
Ba dn ba ba dn ba ba ba!
Ba ba dn ba ba ba!
Ba dn ba ba dn ba ba ba!
I wrote a song about a lonely man
I never meant to change your world
Sometimes reality gets me that way
And all I really want to say
Is as I do what I do to you
Do what you do to me too, oo-ooh!
As I do what I do to you
Do what you do to me too
And I can hear ba ba dn ba ba ba!
Ba dn ba ba dn ba ba ba!
Ba ba dn ba ba ba!
Ba dn ba ba dn ba ba ba!
I wrote a song about a rainy day
I never meant to change your world
Sometimes reality gets me that way
When all I really want to say
Is as I do what I do to you
Do what you do to me too, oo-ooh!
As I do what I do to you
Do what you do to me too
Yeah!
As I do what I do to you
Do what you do to me too, oo-ooh!
As I do what I do to you
Do what you do to me too
Na, Na, Na, Na….etc

(6) 17…& OVER! (Clint Boon)

Never could say what you feel
Never could get where you want to be
Never could seem to achieve
Never could get where you want to be
She was insecure at 17
No-one would look in her general direction
Any more
And it’s no big deal to anyone
To her it’s the end of the line
The end of time
Never could say what you feel
Never could get where you want to be
Never could seem to achieve
Never could get where you want to be
He was 17, so insecure
No one would look in his general direction
Any more
So he mixes up all he can find
Everyone tells him the same thing
Over & over & over & over!
Never could say what you feel
Never could get where you want to be
Never could seem to achieve
Never could get where you want to be
The same things come around
Same things all the time
The same things always happen
Over & over!
Never could say what you feel
Never could get where you want to be
Never could seem to achieve
Never could get where you want to be
The same things always happen
Over & over!
Everyone tells me the same things
Over & Over!

(8) KIDS GET KICKS (Clint Boon)

Yes sir, superintendent
I did it with the flight attendant
She said
“I’m gonna take you ‘bout a mile high!”
And then she took me
About a mile high
Choppin’ on a baby changer
Choppin’ it with a stranger
Gonna get fifty mile high
Gonna get fifty mile high
Kids get kicks in aeroplanes
Kids get kicks in aeroplanes
Kids get kicks in aeroplanes
They’re doin’ it all the time
And daddy’s goin’ on another bender
He’s buggin’ a Canadian called Brenda
He’s throwin’ up and down in the aisle
Man, he’s sure got his own style
He always wanted to be a pilot
He sees a jet he wanna get inside it
A 747 with it’s fuse lit
And a party goin’ on in the cockpit
He be doin’ it thro’ the night
We be doin’ it thro’ the night
Kids get kicks in aeroplanes
Kids get kicks in aeroplanes
Kids get kicks in aeroplanes
Kids get kicks in aeroplanes
They’re doin’ it all the time
They’re doin’ it all the time
They’re doin’ it all the time
They’re doin’ it all the time

(9) ME I’M JUST A GIRL (Clint Boon)

I find I get things done my own way
In my own time
The kind of man who says
“Come what may!”
When the room starts shaking
She was just a girl who liked a good thing
Find a fallen star
She’d pick him up and take him home
And yeah, sometimes it’s wrong
But life’s too short
And death is so long
So who was I to say
“Maybe, girl you’re gonna throw it away!”
And she said…
“Life’s so good, I’m gonna live it tonight!
Life’s so good, I’m gonna live it tonight!
Life’s so good, I’m gonna live it tonight!
So stick around and do some givin’ tonight!!”
