The lyrics

  1. It’s wrong to wish on space hardware
  2. He always beat me at Subutteo /
    Cos he flicked a kick and I didn’t know

    , and
  3. Pitsea, Thundersley, Hadleigh, Leigh-on-sea,
    Chalkwell, Prittlewell,
    Southend’s the end of you

  4. They smelled of pubs and Wormwood Scrubbs /
    And too many right wing meetings

  5. Take control of the population boom /
    It’s in your living room /
    Keep a generation gap /
    Try wearing a cap

  6. How can it be that we can say so much without words? /
    Bless you and bless me, bless the bees and the birds

  7. It’s a good thing you don’t have bus fares /
    They would fall through a hole in your pocket /
    And you’d lose them when there’s snow on the ground

  8. I have every comfort and every sport /
    And my residence is at Hampton Court

  9. Now I lay me down to sleep /
    I hear the sirens in the street /
    All the dreams are made of chrome /
    I have no way to get back home

  10. There are people going to the stratosphere /
    Soldiers fighting with the Cong

  11. There’s brown bread, white bread, all sorts of wholemeal bread /
    It comes in funny packages with writing on the side

    has half the answer, but named the band
  12. My monster in black tights /
    You’re everything a freak like I likes
  13. Mother! I can never come home again, because I seem to have left an
    important part of my brain somewhere in a field in Hampshire

    , and
  14. The question doesn’t matter /
    The answer’s always “aye” /
    The best view of all /
    Is where the land meets the sky

  15. Get a taste for home taping /
    Fetishists of map-making

  16. Everybody wants a box of chocolates and a long-stemmed rose
  17. I wish today could be tomorrow /
    The night is dark, it just brings sorrow anyway

  18. The juice of the carrot, the smile of the parrot /
    A little drop of claret – anything that rocks

  19. Underfoot the ground is patched /
    With climbing arms of ivy wrapped /
    Around the manzanita stark and shiny in the breeze

  20. From your ankle up I’d say you sure you are sweet /
    From that down there’s just too much feet

  21. Black car drives through the town /
    Some guy from the top estate /
    Left a note for a local girl /
    And yet he had it all on a plate

  22. Long distance information, get me Jesus on the line /
    I need communion, confirmation, absolution for my crime

  23. Five years ago, I was a four stone apology /
    Today, I am two separate gorillas

  24. Let me hear your balalaikas ringing out /
    Come and keep your comrade warm

  25. Voyez /
    Ces oiseaux blancs /
    Et ces maisons rouillees
