lyrics

You tell me that I’m holding back
cos I won’t meet your mother
Your sister makes me run a mile
and I don’t dig your brother
You tell me that there’s something wrong
cos I don’t wanna marry
And you won’t hang around too long
I always dilly dally

Tell you why
I’ll tell you why I’m like I am
I just ain’t your kind of man
I’ll never fit inside your plan
Certain qualities I lack
And maybe that is why I’m holding back

You tell me I’m a waste of time
I’ll never be a winner
Cos I don’t ever treat you kind
or take you out for dinner
I’m not like all the other guys
I never send you flowers
You tell me that I’ve got no heart
and I’m a dirty coward

It’s a shame
That I could never be that man
It’s impossible for me
And I hate domesticity
I don’t want to join the pack
And baby that is why I’m holding back

You tell me that I’m holding back
cos I won’t meet your mother
Your sister makes me run a mile
and I don’t dig your brother
You tell me that there’s something wrong
cos I don’t wanna marry
And you won’t hang around too long
I always dilly dally

Tell you why
I’ll tell you why I’m like I am
Pipe and sleepers ain’t for me
Bouncing babies on my knee
I just haven’t got the knack
And baby that is why I’m holding back

about

The Bad Losers Bristol

The Bad Loser’s formed in 2004 due to a shared love of 60s Garage and Freakbeat.

Their recordings are made in a garden shed which resembles a small Working Men’s Club with carousal competing equally with musical creation.

In the comfort of this environment, the band have settled down to a long period of home recording in search of capturing an appropriate lo-fi sound.
