  • Can't move my arms
    Can't move my legs
    Can't say no
    I can't say yes
    Can't help myself
    I need your help

    (We go)
    Oh, ooh, what do we do
    Now we just can't move?
    We're calling out for Middle Street

    (We go)
    Oh, ooh, what do we do
    Now we just can't move?
    We hang on to every line
    And walk straight down the middle of it

    He thought he was gonna die
    But he didn't
    She thought she just couldn't cope
    But she did
    We thought it would be so hard
    But it wasn't
    It wasn't easy, though!

    I can't say yes
    I can't say no
    Can't begin
    Can't let go
    Help me now

    (We go)
    Ooh, ooh, what do we do
    Now we just can't move?
    We're calling out for Middle Street

    (We go)
    Ooh, ooh, what do we do
    Now we just can't move?
    We hang on to every line
    And walk straight down the middle of it

    He thought he was gonna die
    But he didn't
    She thought she could never cope
    But she did
    And we thought it was all over
    But it wasn't
    It hadn't started yet

    And walk straight down the middle of it
    And walk straight down the middle of it
    Calling out for Middle Street
    Calling out for Middle Street

    Walking straight down the middle of it Writer/s: KATE BUSH
