  • Would you please take me away
    From this place
    I cannot bear to see
    The look upon your faces
    And if there
    Is some kind of god
    Do you think he's pleased
    When he looks down on us
    I wonder what he sees
    Do you think
    He'd think the things we do
    Are a waste of time
    Maybe he'd think
    We are getting on just fine
    Do you think he's skint
    Or financially secure
    And come election time
    I wonder who he'd vote for

    Ever since he can remember people
    Have died in his good name
    Long before that September
    Long before hijacking planes
    He's lost the will he can't decide
    He doesn't know who's right or wrong
    But there's one thing that he's sure
    Of this has been going on too long

    Do you think he'd drive
    In his car without insurance
    Now is he interesting
    Or do you think he'd bore us
    Do you think
    His favorite type of human
    Is Caucasian
    Do you reckon
    He's ever been done
    For tax evasion
    Do you think he's any good
    At remembering people's names
    Do you think he's ever taken
    Smack or cocaine
    I don't imagine
    He's ever been suicidal
    His favorite band
    Is Creedence Clearwater Revival

    Ever since he can remember people
    Have died in his good name
    Long before that September
    Long before hijacking planes
    He's lost the will he can't decide
    He doesn't know who's right or wrong
    But there's one thing that he's sure
    Of this has been going on too long

    Ever since he can remember people
    Have died in his good name
    Long before that September
    Long before hijacking planes
    He's lost the will he can't decide
    He doesn't know who's right or wrong
    But there's one thing that he's sure
    Of this has been going on too long Writer/s: GREGORY KURSTIN, LILY ALLEN
