XTC – Take This Town lyrics

Living in a rabbit tunnel,
Keep the doggie in her kennel,
Mustn't let her see the world.

Oh, no!
Don't treat her like that.
Oh, no!
Don't treat her like that.

Living under Mum and Daddy,
Carry hope just like a caddie,
Mustn't let them see you're killed.

Shout it clear for all to hear,
You won't shoot this bird down.
Shout it clear for all to hear,
We're going to take this town.

Turn a deaf ear to the orders,
Keep them as your perfect daughters,
Mustn't let them know their minds.

Turning on to only music,
Breaking from their childhood attic,
Mustn't let them open the blinds.

It's time she stopped being your ornament,
It's time she put that in the past for permanent.
You can't hold her if she wants to roam around,
You can't hold her dream and keep it gagged and bound.

We're going,
We're going to,
We're going to take,
We're going to take this,
We're going to take this,
