"Roads Girdle the Globe" is a song by Andy Partridge. It appeared on the 1979 album Drums and Wires.

A live version appeared as the B-side to the Canadian "Love at First Sight" single.

A live in-studio version, for John Peel, appeared on Drums and Wireless, then later on the 1998 Transistor Blast box set.

QuotesEdit

Andy (on Peel session): “A great little version. It's has a big, monolithic ‘can't-stop-it’ feel. It's from a John Peel session in '79, and I remember him commenting very favorably on it at the time. I think it's better than the Drums and Wires version.”

LyricsEdit

Am I asleep

Or am I fast

You every race

You first, you last


Roads girdle the globe

We all safe in your concrete robe

Hail mother motor

Hail piston rotor

Hail wheel

Roads girdle the globe


Am I tied in

Or do I turn

Your sacred incense

You tyre burn


Roads girdle the globe

We all safe in your concrete robe

Hail mother motor

Hail piston rotor

Hail wheel

Roads girdle the globe


Steer me Anna


Am I get there

When is A, B

Oil, iron, steel

You holy three


Roads girdle the globe

We all safe in your concrete robe

Hail mother motor

Hail piston rotor

Hail wheel

Roads girdle the globe
