The Government have announced
That London Bridge is to be closed
Under the full moon of May the third
All the lighthouses and seaside roads
No, I never heard, I never read in the news

Come on tell me who's this for
Lighting the questions and burning the boats
One by one burning the boats
One by one by

Tap tap tap birds that sing
Telephone calls that do not ring
One two three what's the time?
Who's that hanging off my line?

I know that nothing last forever
And I'm just waiting for the sun to set
Blowing dust from my loud hailer
On the roof

Come on tell me who's this for
Lighting the questions and burning the boats
One by one burning the boats [x2]
One by one by

The ministry of cooperation
Washed and hanging on the line
There's a million burning questions
To set the Thames alight

Now I've joined an exclusive club
Just by being more than poor
Saw the deputy chairman
On the floor

Come on tell me who's this for
Lighting the questions and burning the boats
One by one burning the boats [x2]
One by one by
Burning the boats
One by one burning the boats
