Mental As Anything is an Australian New Wave/rock music band who, since the late 70s have released numerous albums & singles and have produced many innovative music videos. Although they have worked in a much broader musical idiom, Mental As Anything are in many respects comparable to British band Madness, in that their music is typically delivered with a quirky, ironic sense of humour and a strong visual identity. Founding members Martin Plaza and Reg Mombassa met at art school and formed the band in 1976; all of the early members became accomplished painters, with Mombassa's work in particular becoming very well known through his designs for the Mambo clothing company.

The Mentals' music is characterised by poppy, accessible and well-crafted melodies and lyrics, and almost all their work showcases their ironic, satirical and self-deprecating sense of humour. They are arguably one of the most typically 'Australian' of rock groups, with their music and their satirical, good-time image deeply rooted in the milieu of Australian suburbia, despite the fact that two key members (the O'Doherty brothers) were in fact immigrants from New Zealand. The group's art school background and visual design skills also made them pioneers of the music video form in Australia in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and their videos rank as some of the funniest and most imaginative produced in Australia at that time.

The "classic" lineup of the group, which boasted four songwriters and lasted more than twenty years, was:

* Martin Plaza (né Martin Murphy) -- vocals, guitar
* Reg Mombassa (né Chris O'Doherty) -- lead guitar, vocals
* Andrew "Greedy" Smith -- vocals, keyboards, harmonica
* Peter O'Doherty -- bass, vocals
* Wayne "Bird" De Lisle (né David Twohill) -- drums

Песня: Date With Destiny

(Greedy Smith)
I got a date with a girl called Destiny
She's real smart and sweet
Me loving her was always meant to be
To make my life complete
I can't avoid fate or a girl
I can't avoid fate or a girl called Destiny
I'm goin' to try and win her love tonight
I hope I'm good enough
Dressed in my best threads I hope I look alright
I usually look pretty rough
Can't avoid fate or a girl
Can't avoid fate or a girl
Can't avoid fate or a girl called Destiny
Seems to me
It's got to be
Seems to me
It's got to be - Destiny
I got a date with a girl called Destiny
She's real smart and sweet
Me loving her was always meant to be
To make my life complete
I can't avoid fate or a girl
I can't avoid fate or a girl called Destiny
Seems to me
It's got to be
Seems to me
It's got to be - Destiny

Песня: You`re So Strong
I walk along right next to you
You seem to know just what to do
Your body tries to infiltrate
Our privacy it`s hard to wait
Easy darling you can`t ignore
All of the reasons that I love you for
The way we cook, the way you win
When you want to love me I just must give in.
Try not to break me baby you`re so strong.
You mightn`t think so but I know, you`re so strong.
You picked me up and took me home
Straightened me out but didn`t leave me alone
The way you hug the way you kiss
I don`t know how much more I can take of this.
Try not to break me baby you`re so strong.
You mightn`t think so but I know, you`re so strong.
I walk along right next to you
You seem to know just what to do
Your body tries to infiltrate
Our privacy it`s hard to wait
Easy darling you can`t ignore
All of the reasons that I love you for
The way you hug the way you kiss
I don`t know how much more I can take of this.
Try not to break me baby you`re so strong.
You mightn`t think so but I know, you`re so strong.
Try not to break me baby
Try not to break me baby
Try not to break me baby YOU`RE SO STRONG.

Песня: Big Wheel
(Martin Plaza)
I wouldn`t speak ill of you
That would be unfair
I could not do that again
Someone`s always there, someone`s always there
Offer me a role, with dignity,
Offer me control with dignity,
Offer me a role, won`t you offer me control.
Why do you pretend
To be so naive
Give me one excuse
For being allowed to breathe
Offer me a role.
Don`t wanta be a big wheel
But I sure won`t be a slave
Don`t wanta be a big wheel
But I sure won`t be a slave,
Won`t be a slave.
I have you alone, you alone to thank
You taught me how to swim,
When you made me walk the plank.
Offer me a role,
Won`t you offer me control,
Offer me control.
Don`t wanta be a big wheel
But I sure won`t be your slave
Don`t wanta be a big wheel
But I sure won`t be your slave...

Песня: Bus Ride
(Martin Plaza)
I had a meeting at the junction
But my car wouldn`t function
Didn`t have enough for the cab
Say wouldn`t it be fab
To take a bus ride...bus ride
The bus stop was down the road
And as I left my abode
I looked out upon the sea
Oh lucky me
To take a bus ride...bus ride
I climbed aboard and took a seat
Satisfied that I would meet
So many people there
And every single one was rare
On my bus ride...bus ride

Песня: Good Friday
(Martin Plaza)
Good Friday in Dead City
Is no place to be
Good Friday in Dead City
Much worse than Calvary
Good Friday in Dead City is no place to be
It`s chock a block all day deserted by nine-nine thirty
Ask a policeman can you tell me is there a bar open
Might as well be in prison you tell, they won`t listen
Oh no what a town, this town can really get you down
Oh what a state to be run by a senile clown
Pensioners don`t need to go all around the place in fear
Not so lucky if you happen to be a black or queer
Good Friday in Dead City
Is no place to be
Good Friday in Dead City
Is no place to be
Good Friday in Dead City
Is no place to be
Good Friday in Dead City
Is no place to be
No no no no...

Песня Stones Of The Heart

(Reg Mombassa)
I`m not a gypsy or a clown
Cause I don`t want to live in every town
I don`t want everything I see
I just want one girl
She won`t ever have to be afraid
She won`t ever have to be a slave
To a fear of the future
Cause the stones of the heart
And the armour of love keeps us whole
Wipe the sticks from our backs
And the bolts that descend from above
They`re repelled by the armour of love
I don`t have a country or a company of cavalry
I don`t have a bunker or a battery or artillery
I`ve got a brand new spiritual spear
strapped to my thigh
you may wonder what it`s doing there
I`ll tell you why
Cause the stones of the heart
And the armour of love keeps us whole
Wipe the sticks from our backs
And the bolts that descend from above
They`re repelled by the armour of love
Struck down by the stones of the heart
Repelled by the armour of love.
Cause the stones of the heart
And the armour of love makes us whole
The stones of the heart
And the armour of love keeps us whole
Wipe the sticks from our backs
And the bolts that descend from above
They`re repelled by the armour of love
Struck down by the stones of the heart
Repelled by the armour of love.

Песня Splashing

(Reg Mombassa)
Splashing - making a mess of myself
I`m splashing - making a mess of my health
When I go out of my head
the lights go on in the sky
I just want to crawl in bed
I couldn`t get up if I tried
Soaking up the night with my eyes
saucers of boiling oil
soaking up things through my paper skin
and my blood is starting to boil
Splashing - making a mess of myself
I`m splashing - making a mess of my health
When I go out to a club
I check my mind at the door
with a porter in a paper bag
I pick it up when I leave at four
When I`m as big as my uncle Jim
I`ll give you all cause to complain
walkin` around with boots on my head
like a missile on a train

Песня Nigel

We`re only making plans for Nigel
We only want what`s best for him
We`re only making plans for Nigel
Nigel just needs a helping hand
And if young Nigel says he`s happy
He must be happy, he must be happy,
He must be happy in his world
We`re only making plans for Nigel
He has his future in a fist of steel
We`re only making plans for Nigel
Nigel`s whole future is as good as sealed
And if young Nigel says he`s happy
He must be happy, he must be happy,
He must be happy in his world
Nigel is nice spoken and he loves to speak
And he likes to be spoken to
Nigel is happy in his world
Nigel is happy in his world
We`re only making plans for Nigel
We only want what`s best for him
We`re only making plans for Nigel
Nigel just needs a helping hand
And if young Nigel says he`s happy
He must be happy, he must be happy,
He must be happy in his world
We`re only making plans for Nigel
We only want what`s best for him
We`re only making plans for Nigel
We only want what`s best for him

Песня: Mr Natural

I don`t drink
I don`t smoke
I don`t sniff no coke
New age
That`s me
And that`s what you should be
I am Mr Natural
You can call me Mr Natural
I don`t drive no car
I live by the stars
I don`t eat no meat
I am Mr Complete
I am Mr Natural
You can call me Mr Natural
I am Mr Natural
I don`t wear no skin
I don`t care who wins
When I know that I`m right
I don`t get uptight
I am Mr Natural
You can call me Mr Natural
I am Mr Natural
You can call me Mr Natural
Mr Natural
Mr Natural
Mr Natural

Песня Live It Up

How can you see looking through those tears
Don`t you know your worth your weight in gold
I can`t believe you`re alone in here
Let me warm your hands against the cold

Hey yeah you with the sad face
Come up to my place and live it up
Hey yeah you beside the dance floor
Whattya cry for let`s live it up

A close encounter with a hardhearted man
Who never gave half of what he got
Has made you wish you`d never been born
That`s a shame cause you got the lot

If you smiled the walls would fall down
On all the people in this pickup joint
And if you laughed you`d level this town
Hey lonely girl that`s just the point

Just answer me the question why
You stand alone by the phone in the corner and cry

How can you see looking through those tears
Don`t you know your worth your weight in gold
I can`t believe you`re alone in here
Let me warm your hands against the cold

If you smiled the walls would fall down
On all the people in this pickup joint
And if you laughed you`d level this town
Hey lonely girl that`s just the point

Hey yeah you with the sad face
Come up to my place and live it up
Hey yeah you beside the dance floor
Whattya cry for let`s live it up

Let`s live it up,
Live it up
Live it up
Hey yeah you
With the sad face
Come up to my place
Come up to my place baby

Песня I Just Wanna Be Happy

(Reg Mombassa)
When you have too much pleasure
In the course of the night`s activities
You have to be very clever
Avoiding the bad effects of these
I just wanna be happy
Don`t wanna be sad
Don`t want to be too possessive
You`re the girl that I should always have
You might be feeling silly
Unable to converse properly
This could be of damage
To your social acceptability
I just wanna be happy
Don`t wanna be sad
Don`t want to be too possessive
You`re the girl that I should always have
All my friends might come around
And try to make me feel so good
But I can`t find relief in there
Cause both my arms are made of wood
I just wanna be happy
Don`t wanna be sad
Don`t want to be too possessive
You`re the girl that I should always have
Falling over the furniture
Your head is starting to spin
You`d better leave pretty smartly
Or the host won`t be asking you back again
I just wanna be happy
Don`t wanna be sad
Don`t want to be too possessive
You`re the girl that I should always have
