The Lyrics

Some people might say the service has gone to pot
But Londons happy with what its got
People might ask what is that on the floor
but the smell is so bad they run out the door

Tube strikes happening here today
the unions stretch their arms again
and I late for work when on the bus
a decent service - is the thing I want
to reach central London without a fuss

well the PFI never made much sense
But I've got no bike, thats my defense

I Caught the Underground (Going Underground)
where the trains all smell, Under London Town
Going Underground (Going Underground)
Its where the rats all live and the staff all frown very often

Some people might get somewhere on bus or train
Me, I have to travel in this drain
People might not want to pay much more tax
Me, I've got someones suitcase jabbing my back

what you see is what you get
you caught the train and can't get out of it
you bought the ticket for far too much
just to travel each day in the morning rush
You'll see ticket machines defaced by teenagers blood
and the public pays for this awful mess
but I don't wanna get crushed like this

I'm on the Underground (Going Underground)
where the trains all smell, Under London Town
Going Underground (Going Underground)
Its where the rats all live and the staff all frown very often

we queue and push and we start to moan
can suitcases really break peoples bones
the daily rush to Kings Cross at three
makes this boy shout! makes this boy sream!

I'm on the Underground (Going Underground)
where the trains all smell, Under London Town
Going Underground (Going Underground)
Its where the rats all live and the staff all frown very often
