  • Jerry to aisle 5
    'Peat, Jerry to frozen foods aisle 5
    There's a clean-up needed
    There's blood on the floor, there's been a suicide
    Jerry
    Jerry?
    Jerr

    I ain't gotta first line sing for whatever
    Always in the heart beat a friend of mine
    New York, New York in a hot, hot summer
    Leaving the place low all of the time
    "I just got my heart broke home in the winter"
    Oh no he said Paul laugh and a cry
    Don't ever tell them the old broke record
    They won't understand or even know of this crime yeah

    But it's hard for Americans
    To really understand
    What it takes from a man
    Livin' on shattered love
    Walk through Tescoland

    I wait on a long time friend undercovers
    West 23rd words cursed in the wine
    Doesn't matter how far in a bus I travel
    I still feel the twist and the turn of mean time
    I'm not gonna call her a thief or whatever
    Breaking in the back doors of my mind
    You look just like my old young lover
    I relive the past in a last fast find

    But it's hard for Americans
    To really understand
    What it takes from a man
    Livin' on shattered love
    Walk through Tescoland

    Tescoland
    Oh it's a stand
    Metro get ya let's go Tescoland
    Tescoland
    Tescoland
    Get ya Metro let's go let's go

    I was just a fool too singing a new low
    What's new I've fallen from my old high street
    Base can get you though I'm broader than Broadway
    Broader than Broadway in my own defeat
    Who am I kidding man I love to hate
    Love to sail away like a rolling stone
    Every plan I make's meant to take me further away
    But I always end up back at
    Home
    Home
    Back home

    In Tescoland
    In Tescoland
    In Tescoland
    In Tescoland
    In Tescoland

    I guess it's hard for an Englishman
    To really understand
    What it takes from a man
    Livin' on shattered love
    Walk through Tescoland

    Tescoland
    Tescoland
    Tescoland
    Tescoland
    Tescoland
