In Old England Town (Boogie No. 2)

 
	Down, down, you can see them all
	rising gaily to the top
	keep on rising babe you know you got a long drop
	you better cling cos it's the done thing

	Down, down, at the Policemans Ball
	They're all dancing in a line
	keep on gruntin boys you know you're doin fine
	come quickly I've been strangled

	Down, down, at the Military
	they're all marching round and round
	keep them boots shined and that still upper lip down
	Ablution Revolution

	Down, down, at the launching pad
	giant phallus stands erect
	ten thousand tons of waste throb then eject
	look out space, we're gonna change our place

	Down, down, in old England Town
	there was air and now there's smoke
	let's build more cars and drive away before we choke
	suddenly it's always night time

	Down, down, at that nice Trade Fair
	all the money gone astray
	let's inflate this price and float away
	just you and me and everyone...
