The Lyrics

They start by walking
The rush hour starts around quarter to eight
The mad rush to the tube station
Terrified of arriving at the office late
All dressed in the same combinations
Like cloned robots programmed to reach their destination
The commuter army is on its way
Like it is every weekday
And you better stay off transport
Until they're out the way

They make the bus and tube so crowded
And none of them ever smile
It can't be much of a party
Working in an office in London's square mile
All it takes is one signal failure
The trains run late and everyone's buggered
The commuter army is on its way
Like it is every weekday
And you better stay off transport
Until they're out the way

The Euston Underpass is jammed again
It's hard to get on any train
Leaves have fallen on the District Line
Also affecting the Piccadilly Line
So alight at Hammersmith and catch a bus number 9
The evening rush hour, takes until 7pm to clear
A transfer can be arranged, with just a word in your boss's ear
If you want to work, and think the North is cool
You can be sent up to Liverpool
The commuter army is on its way
Like it is every weekday
And you better stay off transport
Until they're out the way
And you better stay off transport
Until they're out the way
And you better stay off transport
Until they're out the way
