First off the blocks

Quarter past eight on a damp Tuesday evening
In a bar just off Tottenham Court Road
With the Thrills playing KOKO
And out to the west you’ll find Rush playing Wembley
In Boston the people are heading for lunch
And in Tallin they’re heading for bed
In Lisbon and Cape Town there’s people in bars that are kind of like this one

And maybe you’re say on a Silverlink train
Or preparing a meal in your flat
Maybe you finally fled from the city to the peace of the countryside
Maybe you flew to the States on secondment and fell for some high-flying guy
Maybe you’re finshing lunch out in Boston in a seventies diner there

First off the blocks
A clean pair of heels and you never looked back…
