The Lyrics

This is another song about British Roads.
When you were young and on your own
how did it feel to be alone?
I was always thinking
Preston should be by-passed
trying to make the best of my time

But only roads can take you home
try to be numbered from the start
Yes, only roads can take you home
but if the traffic jams all-up...

I have a friend I've never seen
He hides his head inside a dream
Someone should build him and see if he can help out
He's the Black Country orbital

But only roads can take you home
try to be m-way from the start
yes, only roads can take you home
but the 'six-two-five did fall apart...

I was always thinking
I was always thinking
I was always thinking
I was always thinking
I was always thinking
I was always thinking
I was always thinking

I was always thinking, Bristol Southern Bypass
I was always thinking, of avoiding Almondsbury
I was always thinking, I was always thinking
I was always thinking, I was always thinking
I-I-I was always thinking, M-Thirty to Penzance
I was always thinking, for a bank holiday
I was always thinking, roads we sould be building
I was always thinking, south coast super-highway
I was always thinking, dreams that I've been having.
