lyrics

This is Pop

England’s still expecting
From zero through to nine
Bankers in the counting house
Are lending borrowed time

To all-night partygoers
The believers and self-made
The earnest and their sweethearts
To the yeoman and the brave

Searching for Jerusalem
Trying to find a way
To perfect the perfect shire
And give Albion her day

This is pop
Dumb down the rhyme
Football stars and processed meat
Anchors toe the line
This is pop

Jack’s colours are fading
And under strain
Yesterday’s gone
Only the stones remain

In these lands so pleasant
So rich with the green
The times are a changing
These are changing times

Red tops spy through curtains
Price takes it all
And young men get blown sky high
In distant fields

This is pop
Dumb down the rhyme
The latest shoes and processed meat
Anchors toe the line
This is pop

Love it or hate it, like it or not
It’s all in the history; it’s all that we’ve got
Down through the ages, for all and no one
The yellow brick road runs and runs…

America’s always hoping
Forever-bright sunshine
Merchants in the market place
Are trying to short sell time

To Hollywood partygoers
The believers and self-made
Dreamers and their sweethearts
The workers and the brave

46 million on food stamps
In the land of the make-it-big
And young men get blown sky high
In distant lands

This is pop
Forever-bright sunshine
Gun control geography
Anchors toe the line
This is pop

Love it or hate it, like it or not
It’s all in the history; it’s all that we’ve got
Down through the ages, for all and no one
The yellow brick road runs and runs…
