Lyrics:
all aboard
hit the road
all this bullshit
can’t be ignored

hard to place
in my face
no emotion

all the problems
make me want to go
like a bad girl
straight to video

little darling
welcome to the show
you’re a failure
played in stereo

hi de ho
here we go
no solution
strong under tow

quite unfair
quite a pair
no box office

all the problems
make me want to go
like a bad girl
straight to video

I never noticed
no never noticed
you’re so amazing
so a-a-amazing

I never said it
no never said it
you’re suffocating suffocating

I never noticed
no never noticed
your beauty’s
fading it’s fa-fa-fading
