Status Quo – Obstruction Day lyrics

( Parfitt / Edwards )

I woke up this morning, the sky was blue
Gonna take it easy, got nothing to do
Ain't going to work, no bills to pay
It's a perfect day

Then I slipped on the soap as I got in the shower
I turned on the lights, but there was no power
Could this happen to me? Is this starting to be
An obstruction day?

We can send a man up to the moon, a satellite to Mars
We've got microwaves and Ladyshaves and supersonic cars
There's so much money in your pocket it don't matter who you are
'Cos there ain't no way to delay an obstruction day

I went for a drive but I wasn't alone
Too many people jamming the road
I'm gonna be late, I declare a state
Of obstruction day

Yeah, we can climb the highest mountain, tunnel right under the sea
We got mobile homes, mobile phones, digital pay TV
With all this technology we think that we are free
But there ain't no way to delay an obstruction day
Obstruction day

You can check it out with the weatherman, but you see the sun don't shine
Make plans if you wanna, and hope that it works out fine
You'll reach your destination but you won't arrive on time
'Cos there ain't no way to delay an obstruction day
No, there ain't no way to delay an obstruction day
Woah, there ain't no way to delay an obstruction day
