Bloc Party - Banquet (The Streets Mix) lyrics

This is a message to Jo Whiley:
Jo, seriously, the year I've had has been crazy
Craaaazy!
I've had a stomach ulcer and a broken heart
I've been out with a celebrity but thankfully no one found out about that

I was just going to post it back anonymously
But Jo that's not what my mom and dad raised me up to be
I made a deal with superstition, and I make deals to keep
September 2003, Friday the 13th
I was on your show, you supported me, I thank you eternally
Things were different back then, before the gambling learnt me
Those days of free beer before that said celebrity fling
Back then, I was desperate to make an excellent second disc

I did something bad
But always vowed to my soul
That if my next work increased my amount of albums sold
Enough for Mike to not end up back out on the dole
I promised I'd promptly send you back what I stole

I don't know how to say this one
But I stole your microphone
While I was on
Your live radio show, Jo

Friday the 13th is unlucky for some, I tell you
But that Friday was lucky for mom
Cause that mic you loaned me made for a number one
Number one! So thank you!

See i got your microphone it's in my pocket oo those registers i fooled them quite easy
i was nervous like didn't know if that gonna be that easy not cuz i had done it million million times,

i don't feel good about it and i don't want to repeat it,
but my new material is free in my web site

So Jo anyways all i wanted to say it's just sorry
i took your mic but im sending it back, promptly

I don't know how to say this one (im really sorry)
But I stole your microphone
While I was on
Your live radio show, Jo

The 13th is unlucky for some, I tell you
But that Friday was lucky for mom
Cause that mike you only made for a number one
Number one!

I keep gettin these letter about not paying my license fee
they already sendin' it red
but after awhile they go back to blue for a change
I wont pay back as long as my water raise

I don't know how to say this one (im really sorry)
But I stole your microphone
While I was on
Your live radio show, Jo

The 13th is unlucky for some, I tell you
But that Friday was lucky for mom
Cause that mike you only made for a number one
Number one!

Jo seriously I'm, im really sorry i don't gonna say that i was Drunk to excuse my self i was drunk

even broke at one point i had it to pay at thus , i feel awful
we use it to record nearly 2 albums so yea
give him a good time cuz he has become really quite a friend
