"Red Light Green Light" as written by and David Leslie Walls....
Red light
You're lonely
And nobody cares

I'm tired of hanging round
I'm tired of this old town
I'm tired of all the old familiar ways

I wanna take a trip
Get on a rocket ship
I'll be a satellite in fourteen days

I take a pack of paracetamol
Then I can wait around and feel it all
Or I can take some time
To get a grip on my mind
Take a walk outside
Maybe just keep rocking out

Red light green light
Stuck in a hole
Just past bedtime
I don't wanna know
Red light green light
Stuck in a hole with you
And there's nothing you can do
You got a
Red light green light
Stuck in a hole
Just past bedtime
I don't wanna know
Red light green light
Stuck in a hole with you

It's nothing new

I got a grin to grip
I gotta want to win
While all the monkeys throw their weight around

Don't wanna share your cup
Don't wanna beat you up
I'd rather wait a while and beat you down

I put a CD in my stereo
Instead of taking the needle
And I can pull right in
With the patience I'll win
Cos in an ideal world
There'll be no time for ideas
Got a

Red light green light
Stuck in a hole
Just past bedtime
I don't wanna know
Red light green light
Stuck in a hole with you
And there's nothing you can do
You got a
Red light green light
Stuck in a hole
Just past bedtime
I don't wanna know
Red light green light
Stuck in a hole with you

Yeeaaaahhhh!

Took a bit of time to see
I like being me

So put the crowd in shock
Get their feelings unlocked
Get your wagon to a check in
And it's adios amigos
Got a

Red light green light
Stuck in a hole
Just past bedtime
I don't wanna know
Red light green light
Stuck in a hole with you
And there's nothing you can do
You got a
Red light green light
Stuck in a hole
Just past bedtime
I don't wanna know
Red light green light
Stuck in a hole with you
Stuck in a hole with you

    General CommentI think this is about life's ups and downs. When you're feeling good, you can get things done, and keep moving, but when you're down, your whole life grinds to a halt. Love this song, plus, the video is just pure genius...

    General CommentInfo Lad - that's pretty much it. I think its just Ginger saying 'get on with it', and give stuff a go. The video must have cost a hell of a lot to make...
