  • Don't you be a traffic light
    With all things said
    You turn to red
    Don't you be a traffic light

    Don't you be a round-a-bout
    Not another round-a-bout
    We've come this far
    Yet back to the start
    Don't you be a round-a-bout

    Oh now baby don't miss read the signs
    If you turn the key then things will turn out fine

    Lets not have a break down
    Not another breakdown
    You're on your own a long way from home
    Lets not have a breakdown

    Don't miss read the signs
    If you had just turned the key
    Then things would have turned out fine

    [Repeated in background]
    You're pushing me, you're breaking
    Over taking me you're racing
    First placing me not chasing me back home

    [Repeat x3]
    You've come so far
    Your back to the start
    Don't you be a traffic light

    With all things said
    You've turned to red
    Don't you be a traffic light

    Don't let me down Writer/s: JULES DE MARTINO, KATIE WHITE
