Lyrics
These are danger days (What sort of days are these?)
These are troubled times (Dy'aknow what time it is?)
There it goes again (Another gear being slipped)
I must be near the sea (A single cod n' chips)
A cup a tea for three and (Six including V.A.T.)
Around the rugged rocks (A round trip there and back)
The Helter Skelter's Free (Don't tell mad Charlie that)
I'd send a b_____ card (He'd want a b_____ snap)

I'd stay at home today,
But the world said
(Go man go)
Everybody said
(Go man go)
Local Postman said
(Go man go)

I feel so down (so low, too tired to think)
I feel so low (oh no, well, whatdya think?)
My feet slow down (ah slow, well I can't lift my head)
A fevered brow (Oh no, I think I'll stay here in bed)
Thunder over Tokyo, pressure on my eyes,
Hi-fi on their head, while they tidy their t__hes.
Dear Auntie Fifi, You should see this place
They grow a cushion on you back, and a flu mask on your face.

I'd stay at home today
But the world said
(Go man go)
In j__anese they said
Hoya soto ha ha ha(Go man go)
I heard someone say
(Go man go)
And we went
