Burning the Boats - Lyrics


The Government, have announced
That London Bridge, is to be closed
Under the full moon of May the third
All the lighthouses and seaside roads
No I never heard I never read in the news

Come on tell me, who's this for?
Lighting the questions and
Burning the boats one by one
Burning the boats one by one by

T-t-tap tap tap birds that sing
Telephone calls that do not ring
One, two, three what's the time?
Who's that hanging off my line?

I know that nothing lasts forever
And I'm just waiting for the sun to set
Blowing dust from my loud hailer
On the roof

Come on tell me, who's this for?
Lighting the questions and
Burning the boats one by one
Burning the boats one by one
Burning the boats one by one by

Instrumenatal

The ministry of co-operation
Are washed and hanging on the line
There's a million burning questions
To set the Thames alight

Now I've joined an exclusive club
Just by being more than poor
I saw the deputy chairman
On the floor

Come on tell me, who's this for?
Lighting the questions and
Burning the boats one by one
Burning the boats one by one
Burning the boats one by one by

Burning the boats one by one
Burning the boats
