Here in England it's so green
Martian men can move unseen
Apparatus underground
Monitor the crunching sound

Joey's gone and Georgie's gone
Put their best torn trousers on
Found a crowbar and a drill
Headed for the Berlin Wall

And last night I swear I saw her face
As they stormed the gates of satellite TV ("Europa")
Too bad I don't get News At Ten
'Cause the CNN would tell a different story

Chorus:

Eastern Bloc, Eastern Bloc
You're never gonna break that deadlock
How can I shake that gridlock?
Shell-shock!
Tuning out, tuning in, Europa, Europa
Shine across these waves and rescue me
Loud and clear, through thick and thin, Europa, Europa
Come in, come in, come in, come in, do you read?
Are you receiving me?

So I was fourteen she was twelve
Father travelled, hers as well
Down the beaches hand in hand
Twelfth of never on the sand

And we said we'd be the pirate twins again
In the freezing rain of the Eastern Bloc
And I used to think each time we kissed it was for real
But tonight I feel that the wind has changed

(Repeat Chorus Twice)

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. I loved it before I could understand a lick of the lyrics, I loved it when I started to understand enough of it for it to make more sense to me, I love it now . . . naustalgically, because I lost the CD and the last time I looked for it I found nothing.


    Maybe I'll get lucky, I should do another search for it.

    General CommentThomas claimed "Europa and the Pirate Twins" was autobiographical. Which begs the question whether this song is a real or imagined sequel.
