London's burning, London's burning

All across the town, all across the night
Everybody's driving with full headlights
Black or white turn it on, face the new religion
Everybody’s sitting 'round watching television
London's burning with boredom now
London's burning, dial 99999
London's burning with boredom now
London's burning, dial 99999
I'm up and down the Westway in and out the lights
What a great traffic system, it's so bright
I can't think of a better way to spend the night
Then speeding around underneath the yellow lights
London's burning with boredom now
London's burning, dial 99999
London's burning with boredom now
London's burning, dial 99999
Now I'm in the subway and I'm looking for the flat
This one leads to this block, this one leads to that
The wind howls through the empty blocks looking for a home
I run through the empty stone because I'm all alone
London's burning with boredom now
London's burning, dial 99999
London's burning with boredom now
London's burning, dial 99999

Here we go, here we go rocking tonight
Lets go to another light
All you???, lets see the town bright
??? Women like 63???
Wait, smashing??? The cable???, not your scene
Over there, let’s see what’s going on
Here you go my, go sister, two bumper cars
London's burning
