  • That's it, the end
    But you'll get over it, my friend

    Time will pass, governments fall
    Glaciers melt, hurricanes bawl
    High-speed trains take us away
    North or south and back the same day

    And you, you'll get over it
    You do, you get over it

    Seasons will change, more or less
    Species vanish, art perplex
    Resentment remain both east and west
    Police expect an arrest

    For now, you'll get over it
    Somehow, you'll get over it

    You'll be there, the king over the water
    In despair, recoiling from the slaughter

    They're raising an army in the North
    From York Minster to the Firth of Forth
    A pilgrimage of grace, you won't believe it
    Such a human face when you receive it

    And you will get over it
    With time to kill, you'll get over it

    There's a cruiser waiting at Scapa Flow
    To take you away from all you know
    The old man agonised
    He really has compromised

    Public opinion may not be on your side
    There are those who think they've been taken for a ride
    You'll get over it, I'm on your side because
    You'll get over it, and what a ride it was!

    Tout les artistes dans le monde
    Chantent pour toi ce soir
    Tout les artistes dans le monde
    Chantent pour toi c'est noir

    It's dark, but you'll get over it
    On your mark, you'll get over it

    That Carphone Warehouse boy has been on the phone
    He wants to upgrade the mobile you own
    Have you realized your computer's a spy?
    Give him a ring, he'll explain why

    The bourgeoisie will get over it
    Look at me, I'm so over it
    And you, you'll get over it!
    You do, you get over it in time Writer/s: CHRIS LOWE, NEIL TENNANT
