QuotesEdit

Andy: “In praise of women. They're wondrous. This belongs in a 50's musical with Anthony Newley singing it, hanging off the back of some trolleybus.”

Andy (on the demo): “Although the music was around in October 1990 (see ‘Blimp Poet’ from Blegvad/Partridge's Orpheus - The Lowdown), it took another month to figure out this more earthbound lyric. A very complete demo that must have pissed off Dave and Colin, as in no room to squeeze in. From the 50's musicals Goys and Dills or Pal Joey Ramone.”

LyricsEdit

Climb up here beside me

We can ride and find a friend unfound

Put your foot upon the laughing gas

And drive your grin around


Omnibus, take all of us

All of us, take Omnibus

Ain't nothing in the world like a white skinned girl

Make your Union Jack and make your flag unfurl


You can't say you've ridden

'Till you've given up your heart and seat

Man that lady clippie rip your ticket

Make your trip complete


Omnibus, take all of us

All of us, take Omnibus

Ain't nothing in the world like a black skinned girl

Make your shakespeare hard and make your oyster pearl


Don't let horses pass you by

Take a run and leap on

Pull the blinkers from your eyes

Before big bus has gone

We'll be stopping off

In every shop until you find that mate

Don't waste time, go on and taste them all

Why don't you fill your plate?


Omnibus, take all of us

All of us, take Omnibus

There's nothing in the world like a gold skinned girl

To make your bonsai weep and make your bamboo curl


Omnibus, take all of us

All of us, take Omnibus

Omnibus, take all of us

All of us, take Omnibus

Ain't nothing in the world like a green skinned girl

But that don't mean to say you can't look
