Venus in Flares

A million housewives every day
Pick up a can of beans and say:
“What an amazing example of synchronisation”

He looked out of the aeroplane
And he saw the Alps way down below
He fixed his gaze on the white terrain
And he could see a portrait in the snow
And he shouted: “Hey look down there, I can see Robert Powell”
That’s an ominous example of the power of TV

And I went la la la la la la la
La la la la la la laaa
Oh la la la la la la la
Just like everyone else does when they can’t think of any more words

Yeah OK I had a Kojak mac
By Christ they were trendy at the time
I got it into my head that I had to stamp out crime
The man behind the mask at C&A’s was quite polite
He said that when I wore my mac I wouldn’t have to fight

And I went yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah (sure George)
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah (Oh God)

Oh the Grand Old Duke of York
Well, he had ten thousand men
And he marched them all to the top of the hill
And he had them all again
