Tried to do this the other day but couldn't make out a lot in places but this is what I've fathomed so far :P

Pen to the paper, stereo taper
All listen a nice big player
Big? This is my favourite bit
Without the money it’s just a wish
Now I don’t have to dream about getting paid
I take you to the books all the rhymes I’ve made
I hit the studio and get paid to go.

Sugar spun sisters outgoing the distance
Get me, I’m seeking some assistance
High in the realms tonight,
Sky-high like a meteorite
I’m easy like the holy ghost
Ain’t no voice, it’s just a toast
High in the realms tonight,
Sky-high like a meteorite

Stone Roses all the rage
Stone Roes up on the stage
Not a pause, down the doors
Let’s have a round of applause


It's going to be wrong in places!! but a start.

The first bit is taken from Paid In Full by Eric B and Rakim

A pen and a paper, a stereo, a tape
All this with a nice big plate of
Fish, which is my favorite dish
But without no money it’s still a wish
Cause I don’t like to dream about getting paid
So I dig into the books of the rhymes that I made
So now's a test to see if I got pull
Hit the studio, cause I’m paid in full

Not managed to work out the rest though.

Great effort!

Aren't the first lines taken from "Paid in Full" by Eric B and Rakim? http://www.metrolyrics.com/paid-in-full ... rakim.html

Does anyone think They might use some of this in a new song?

Edit: oops! Got there before me!

Yeah, sounds very much like it then. So from the Amsterdam recording it must be pretty close to:

yeah this looks pretty good to me. I've been trying to figure out that middle part. I honestly thought it sounded like "sky high like a gorilla tonight." Your interpretation is much better.

I replies to the post you put on FB about this Paul but please excuse my laziness in copy and pasting the comment I left over to here, I just can't be arsed typing it out again haha....

Almost mate, just a few words out. A lad on the IB forum has a photo from Lyon of the words written out in sinilar style to the setlists...

Sky high in the realms tonight, sky high like a meteorite, I'm easy like the holy ghost, aint no boast its just a toast.

Then at the end...

...Stone Roses up on the stage, bang the drums, ignore the bores, kick down the doors, let's have a round of applause.

Good effort though by the way :)

Thanks for putting them up, sound about right.

When I saw it in Amsterdam I didnt like it, maybe because it seemed a bit cheesey... but on Sunday at Heaton Pk it was great, went with the crazy atmosphere.

Now I dont mean to be cheeky, but Ian's line about Sugar Spun Sisters going the distance.... We need some assistance"... couldnt be about a divorce could it ? (Sorry).

I think he does change it a bit, at times. "The Stone Roses in the dark/Stone Roses in the park" bit is definitely there on the Sunday.

He also sang "Stone Roses, built to last/Stone Roses in Belfast" in... well, Belfast.
