Are you bored? Are you jaded?
Has all the enthusiasm faded?

Are you one of those people. Like glazed fruit.
Who sit there in shell-shock. Till the dot on your screen disappears?
Are you one of those people. Or are you just afraid? Are you one who craves
Excitement.
Were you tailor made.
For this sporting life? Living on a knife edge.
This sporting life's forever changing.
Are you one of these people?
The keys please quick. Every second counts.
I've signed the book. Gimme the keys. The elevator opens it's mouth. Like
Jonah and the whale. The elevator spits me out.
Into a freak show. It's a freak show.
And into a swarm of flies.
Do... do not disturb. Do... do not disturb.
The sign on the door read: Do not disturb.
Strange looks from the bellman. As he takes me down the hallway through a
Firedoor to a stairwell. Skidding, skidding, skidding, skidding.
Out of control, out of control. Do... do not disturb. Do... do not
Disturb. The sign on the door read. The sign on the door said. The sign on
The door read: Do not disturb.
This is the Bad Samaritans. Hello loved one,
Sorry there was nobody here, to take your call personally. However, we
Understand what you're going through. How you've travelled life's highway,
With your smile on upside-down.
And now you think you've found, the ultimate answer to all your problems.
Don't be hasty. Why waste a life. Wait until there's a crowd down below.
Give a little when you go.

Are you one of these people? Jump jump jump jump jump... There's a
Fruitcake in the window. Someone fetch the cops. For God's sake get a
Camera. Before the bastard drops.
A little to the left. A little to the right.
A little to the left. Maybe tonight's the night.
Why are we waiting? We're waiting.

A little to the left. Right down the middle.
A little to the right. X marks the spot. You ain't gonna be. On this is
Your life's tonight.
This sporting life. Needs organising.
We'd gladly lose the cup. If we could stick the knife in. This sporting
Life. This sporting life.
This sporting life's forever changing.
Are you bored? Are you jaded? Has all enthusism faded. Are you one of those
People?
