 STORMTROOPER IN DRAG INFO

Stormtrooper in Drag and Night Talk was co-wrote by Gary and the late Paul Gardiner but credited to Paul. Paul Gardiner was a very creative musician and had come up with some inspired bass lines at times, but on this track Gary played the bass and Paul the guitar. This was a one off for Gary and Paul but sadly dew to Paul's drug problems Gary and Paul never co-wrote another song. Paul became yet another drug casualty Paul died of a heroin overdose in 1984. It was a very tragic event that naturally upset Gary and eventually prompted him to write "A Child With The Ghost." The Stormtrooper in Drag single was briefly available as a 12" whit label promo. 

 STORMTROOPER IN DRAG LYRICS

Stormtrooper In Drag 
(Single with the late, great Paul Gardiner, 1981)

So here am I
Quite by chance near the phone
I could call and make you crawl into bed

Questions always questions
I'll just speak in slow motion
About obsessions with boys on the floor

Take that smile off your face
Wipe that tear from your eye
Don't say sorry for me
Take that smile off your face
Wipe that tear from your eye
Don't say sorry for me

Now look at me
Like a stormtrooper in drag
I'll bet you feel exactly like I do
It's so disgusting
I'm so tired of
Rhythm and needles in arms
I don't want your point of view

Nothing to do
Nothing to steal
And there's nothing to say
Nothing to do
Nothing to steal
And there's nothing to say

Oh, don't cry
Love it, love it
I need to

Stop it

(Written by Gardiner / Numan) 


Night Talk 
(B-side, 'Stormtrooper In Drag' single, 1981)

Boys watch from windows tonight
I'm not surprised to see you waiting here
You keep them in business just supplying you
Get in the car I've something to say

Stay in bed
Why waste my time
Open your eyes but
Only if you can
Office in a sidestreet is no place for you
Night talk and romance
Like beat the clock

Boys like me aren't supposd to cry
But it's so easy to do
Boys like me aren't supposed to cry
But just look at you
Night talk

Take things slow you can crack
Like your face I don't understand
How you smile and pretend it's fun
Do you laugh when the rats come round to play?

Boys like me aren't supposd to cry
But it's so easy to do
Boys like me aren't supposed to cry
But just look at you
Night talk
