The Lyrics

Off to work then but the Tube is closed
busses take an hour - there you know
Tourist's walking into people fall
you're saying "move your bag",
cause they can't close the doors

Circle line goes in the wrong direction
Mornington Crescent's no-go this time
in every seat remains the impression
you back's uncomfortable with this design
this is not about to expire
reached the toilets but they'd all been closed
private firms, ensure the price is higher
it's the time, it's the time to go

Looking down on the underground
the excuse of cost means service - out
where did the taxi's go
congestion charges have got rid of them you know
in this tip here one more time
where the carriage jumps on cracked railway lines
the quality's gone down
looking down on the under
down on the underground

Ken Livingstone tries to win again
meanwhile I'm stuck here upon this train
Tony Blair reasserts his control
and when the PFI comes, up the prices go

Circle line goes in the wrong direction
Mornington Crescent's no-go this time
in every seat remains the impression
you back's uncomfortable with this design
this is not about to expire
reached the toilets but they'd all been closed
private firms, ensure the price is higher
it's the time, it's the time to go

Looking down on the underground
the excuse of cost means service - out
where did the taxi's go
congestion charges have got rid of them you know
in this tip here one more time
where the carriage jumps on cracked railway lines
the quality's gone down
looking down on the under
down on the underground

the carriage jumps on cracked railway lines
looking down on the under
down on the underground
the carriage jumps on cracked railway lines
looking down on the under
down on the underground
