Boarded up
Yeah, we're boarded up
Nailed up shut
Yeah, we're boarded up

Music venue has had it's day
Death watch beetle band moved in to play
Groups don't come down from London way

Cos we're boarded up
Yeah, we're nailed up shut
Two-by-four-ded up
Yeah, we're boarded up

Touring companies stay away
Rats and mice take the centre stage
Carpenter's mate have a field day

Boarded up
Yeah, we're nailed up shut
[don't mind me at all]
Two-by-four-ded up
Yeah, we're boarded up

Pubs and clubs had the chop
Making way for a superstore plot
Some town planner didn't know when to stop

Boarded up
Come and see us
Boarded up
Don't wait too long, now cos we're
Boarding up
Yeah, boarded up...
