It's a long, long way, oooh
From Bollywood to Battersea
Bollywood to Battersea
Bollywood to Battersea

I was a child of the pound and the crown
I lost myself in the haze
Of the new life that I found
On the silver screen

She was a child of the movies and the dollar
One fine day I was led astray
She took me by the collar
Said you must follow me

Well it's a long, long way, oooh
From Bollywood to Battersea
Bollywood to Battersea

It's a long, long way, oooh
From Bollywood to Battersea
Bollywood to Battersea
Bollywood to Battersea

I was born in the four minute warning
My old man said as he shook his head
"Ohhh, fuck this...
I'm off down the boozer"

It's a long, long way, oooh
From Bollywood to Battersea
Bollywood to Battersea
Bollywood to Battersea

Yeah I was a child of the suicide and the leisure
Oh one fine day I was led astray
Took me by the collar
Said what's your pleasue

It's a long, long way, oooh
From Bollywood to Battersea
Bollywood to Battersea
Bollywood to Battersea

    General CommentI can't believe there aren't any comments on this, it's so catchy! I think it's about somebody so different to the woman he loves; he's a typical British man - "I was a child of the pound and the crown". Then she leads him away from what he's used to and he can't tell whether it's for the best or not. Just an idea :)
