  • What do you got?
    Mass produced in somewhere hot
    You'll have to go on the Underground
    To get things done here
    (And then you have to see)
    If you need a yellow duck, service done
    This is a place to come to,
    Or, well, it was
    I know a hot spot oh oh
    Crossing on the guillotine

    And if you have nobody left to rely on
    I'll hold you in my arms and let you drift
    It's got to be that time again
    And June, June will be over soon again

    So get yourself up, get a past glitch on your way
    There's nothing to be ashamed of
    Taking off again
    The five fourteen to East Grinstead
    (You've sent me off to see) (we're going up, up, up, up, up)
    Coursing on our greatest night
    And talking types will let us down, again
    Talk, talk on your arse all night
    You wanna be there

    Step inside the tarmac ride
    To the land that crime forgot
    Oh, just don't go there
    Cracks inside the tarmac ride
    To the land that crime forgot, oh no

    And if you have nobody left to rely on
    I'll hold you in my arms and let you drift
    Going down to Lonesome Street, ooh
    Going down to Lonesome Street, ooh
    Lonesome Street, ooh

    Going down to Lonesome Street, ooh
    Lonesome Street, ooh
    Going down to Lonesome Street, ooh Writer/s: Damon Albarn, David Rowntree, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James
