  • A lot of nine fingered boys in the village
    They haven't got much choice in the village
    Model car, model wife, model village
    Model far, model right, model village
    They ain't too friendly in the village
    There's a tabloid frenzy in the village
    "He's not a racist, but", in the village
    Gotta drive half-cut in the village
    Model low crime rate in the village
    Model race, model hate, model village
    Got my head kicked in in the village
    There's a lot of pink skin in the village
    "Hardest man in the world", in the village
    He said he got with every girl in the village

    Take flight, take flight
    Model village

    I beg your pardon
    I don't care about your rose garden
    I'm listenin' to the things you said
    You just sound like you're scared to death

    I'm a fucking dragon
    Still not in love with the village
    Homophobes by the tonne in the village
    A lot of overpriced drugs in the village
    A lot of half pint thugs in the village
    Model car, model wife, model village
    Model far, model right, model village
    I see a lot of gammon in the village
    I don't see a lot happen in the village
    Just give them an anthem and they'll sing it
    Still they don't know the meanings in it
    Just saluting flags 'cause it's British
    Idiot spirits think they're kindred
    Model low crime rate in the village
    Model race, model hate, model village
    It feels like the village is self-pillaged
    Still someone's making a killing

    Take flight, take flight
    Take flight
    Model village

    I beg your pardon
    I don't care about your rose garden
    I'm listenin' to the things you said
    You just sound like you're scared to death

    I beg your pardon
    I don't care about your rose garden
    I'm listenin' to the things you said
    You just sound like you're scared to death

    You gotta laugh as the curtain twitches
    And the villagers bury their riches
    But the village doesn't know what rich is
    Just snitches snitching on snitches
    Only one thing to do in the village
    Just say toodle-do to the village
    Toodle-fucking-do Writer/s: Adam Devonshire, Joe South, Jonathan Beavis, Joseph Talbot, Lee Kiernan, Mark Bowen
