I've always been impressed with a girl
That's the way I am, heaven help me
As he nailed another one to the wall

Goodbye and good luck to all the rubbish that you've spoken
You're an accident waiting to happen
There you are standing at the bar
And that chip on your shoulder gets bigger as you get older
It'll give you a pregnant pause for thought

Time up and time out for all the friends that you've forsaken
You're an accident waiting to happen
And my sins are so unoriginal
In this carnival of carnivores,

Goodbye and good luck to all the rubbish that you've spoken
You're an accident waiting to happen
You're a dedicated swallower of fascism
