Madness – Land Of Hope And Glory lyrics

What's the time?
I was trying to get some sleep
Attention, urrraaah, bridges
Shorty, Nutty, Jack, Tommos motor
Uuuh, as you can see we've got a new recruit to this land of hope and glory
Hands behind you backs and legs apart and tell us all a story
Who me sir?
Yes, you ssssir!
I was an innocent man till someone grassed me up my plan
I'm earning some big a money
I hadn't mouthed it about, I am sure without doubt
I'd admit this land of hope and glory
Well you poor poor sod, here you're up sharp at six thirty
Cold shower down to breakfast, can't have you looking dirty
I suggest you eat what's given you even if it doesn't agree with you
It's all you will be getting up until twelve thirty
In between this time stay up in your room, you can dream about life
Get it
Two years of my teen age life given to this stand to attention life
Of land of hope and glory
I get so bored as time goes by, I think I'll do something dirty
I pick at the floor for juicy butts and I'll make myself a smoke
A bog roll and envelope stick it, falling down to pass my time
As the evening drags on, you can watch a little telly
Or dance with pans people with a little bit of belly
Pass yourself cold with a hint of yesterday
Don't complain learn the game and I'll get through another day
I was sitting there on the clock at long last is nine thirty
Off to bed straight to sleep as I leave this land of hope and glory
But only for a few seconds I'm in n ecstasy
Before the bell rings to let me know, sharp at six thirty
A the, a two, a six, a ta
Quiet, come on you lot, come on, lights out
