"Goodbye Toulouse" as written by Hugh Alan Cornwell, David Greenfield, Brian John Duffy and Jean Jacques Burnel....
Your streets were paved with love
Your skies were blue
Goodbye Toulouse

I walked your streets in fear
I washed your streets with tears
Toulouse

Goodbye Toulouse

Your cafes tell the tale
Of saddened millionaires
Toulouse

A million dreams I've had
A million lies I've told
Toulouse

Goodbye Toulouse

Paula looked down on me
From her high balcony
Toulouse

I will return some day
So you can hear me say
Farewell

Goodbye Toulouse
Goodbye Toulouse
Goodbye Toulouse

    General CommentThese lyrics by JJ Burnel are easily the classiest from their debut album.
    The song concerns a nuclear accident in Toulouse's future as predicted by Nostrodamas (according to the Meninblack.)

    General CommentIt was about 30 degrees,I was stuck in monster traffic, then some cunt drove into our van and sped off. My girlfriend misdirected me INTO the Airbus factory and I hit a speed-bump I hadn't noticed. I took off...singing Goodbye Toulouse.
