D'you think I'd have to choose?
D'you think I'd wear brown shoes?
D'you think that I'd ever have to read about this in the news?
You're gonna have a go?
Well I don't want to know
I just thought that I should try and say hello

To those who'd never exist
Without being generic
You'll have to impress
Our bovine public
You'd never exist
If you wasn't generic
You'll have to impress
Our bovine public

I'll never forget how all this begun
And I will never regret a thing I have done
But you would never exist without us.

So maybe I do not have the time
Fair-weather friends of mine
A year's a long time to be doing nothing with your life
I heard you felt alert
Well I'm hoping that it hurt
You seem to spend too much time in groundwork to be ground into the dirt

By those who'd never exist
Without being generic
You'll have to impress
Our bovine public
You'd never exist
If you wasn't generic
You'll have to impress
Our bovine public

I'll never forget how all this begun
And I will never regret a thing I have done
But you would never exist without us.

You say nothing
So you will always mean nothing to me
And if what you say means nothing
Then what you say will always mean nothing to me

D'you think I'd have the time
Fair-weather friends of mine
A year's a long time to be doing nothing with your life
I heard you felt alert
Well I'm hoping that it hurt
You seem to spend too much time in groundwork to be ground into the dirt

By those who'd never exist
Without being generic
You'll have to impress
Our bovine public
You'd never exist
If you wasn't generic
You'll have to impress
Our bovine public

I'll never forget how all this begun
And I would never regret the one thing I've done
But you would never exist without us
So maybe I do
