  • You came over here with wild tales from the East
    About the floods that are rushing 'round your door
    About your old lady who up and walked away from your feast,

    So you flew your bike over Highway 1
    You were lucky to land on your feet
    And you started crying 'cause you bent the key,
    But it was your lady that landed underneath.

    And it is alright
    Take it as it comes
    You will find a way
    To get there.

    So tell me your company's being reviewed,
    By the people that sit on the stand,
    And you tell me your factory's been renewed,
    With computers instead of hands.

    So you filmed Old faithful in super-8
    And you monitored all of her calls
    Cause you caught the milkman with double-cream
    He was delivering down your halls.

    But its all right
    Take it as it comes
    You will find a way
    To get there. Writer/s: NASH
