Sooooooooooooooooooooooo
Everything is average nowadays
Everything is average nowadays
Everyone would do it if they can
And everything is going down the pan
And everyone is following the craze
And everything is average

Now you say it's getting better
But I don't really see the signs
Said it is too different
You thought it would be suicide

Not much to believe in
Left up on a shelf
So get your coats we're leaving
We'll just do something else

Ohhhh everything is average nowadays
Everything is average nowadays
And everything is of no consequence
'Cos everyone is sitting on the fence
And everything will always stay the same
'Cos everything is average

Now you said you didn't mean it
You threw away the book of rules
You thought that we should read it
I wouldn't even know how to

Not much to believe in
Left up on the shelf
So get your coats we're leaving
We'll just do something else

All I need is a ball and a wall
Or a sledge and a hill in heavy weather
All I need is a ball and a wall
A sledge and a hill in heavy weather

Oh oh oh oh etc.

Not much to believe in
Left up on the shelf
So get your coats we're leaving
We'll just do something else

Sooooooooooooooooooooooo
Everything is average nowadays
Everything is average nowadays
Everyone would do it if they can
And everything is going down the pan
And everyone is following the craze
And everything is average nowadays
