LyricsEdit

People rushing round with no time to spare

I'm so dizzy,

I'm neither here nor there

In this traffic jam,

I just want to shout,

Let me off o' this English roundabout


English roundabout


And all the the horns go 'beep! beep!'

All the people follow like sheep,

I'm full of light and sound,

Making my head go round, round


Everyone is cursing under their breath,

I'm a passenger,

I feel close to death,

Hopeless situation,

I have no doubt

Stop the madness, English roundabout


English roundabout


And all the cars go 'brum! brum!'

And in my ears I feel a hum,

The neons blind my eyes,

All those tempers rise, rise


Cars and buses go,

Puffing out their smoke,

Roll my window down,

I begin to choke

I have had enough,

I just want to get out

Let me off o' this English roundabout


English roundabout
