The Lyrics

Contaminated land is now a big issue here in the UK, and Battersea Power Station featured on the cover of the Pink Floyd "flying pigs" album

My next door neighbour's Burmese cat (called "Bur" ) is a big Lynyrd Skynyrd fan, and sings this song all the time
Routemaster 137 wheels keep on turning
carry me homewards to ma kin
singing songs about coal gasification
I miss Battersea Power Station once again, and I think its sad

Well I heard Mrs Thatcher talk about her
well I heard old Tony put her down
well I hope John Prescott will remember
Soil Guidance Values mean we don't need them politicians around anyhow

Sweet Home Battersea Power Station
where the blackbirds are so blue
spent oxide and asbestos
might be lying there next to you

Wandsworth council says the site ain't contaminated, kelly, icrcl,dutch list
because a receptor just ain't there
and anyway once it's been redeveloped
who cares if the squirrels have got green hair

Lord Hutton would probably have concluded
them gypsy tree-rats should not be there
as we are still pre-accession
and foreigners taking acorns out of the mouths of locals, why that just ain't fair

Sweet home Battersea Power Station
where the flying pigs are so pink
the pit bull terriers are called billy
cos the're blue and cause a 'monical stink
