It's late January 1992
And its the year of the unborn child
The Channel Tunnel has been aborted
The single market celebrated on satellite
And its the year of the still born European child

Overhead in a German car park
I heard it again in Rotterdam
Its the year of the small business
It's a symbol of the new age Dan
I have a vision and it's a grim one

This is the year of Britische Architect
This is the year of Britische Architect
This is the year of Britische Architect
Britische Architect

This is the mystery of the missing architects
Disappearances no clues found
I suspected a Royalist conspiracy
No stone was left unturned
In the year of the Prince's coronation
Meanwhile I'm helping Dutch police
Investigate an offshore scam
It's the year of saying nothing
It's the age of European man
And I'm innocent of all charges

This is the year of Britische Architect
This is the year of Britische Architect
This is the year of Britische Architect
Britische Architect

Driving through the empty tunnel
I'm happy with my new elan
It's the year of year of building bridges
this is the year of blanket ban
And it's another fine mess I've landed myself in
Up ahead is a customs officer
One hand's upon his gun
He asks my about my passenger
"Tell me where you left him son"
This is the year civil liberties
But don't protest too loud
Silence is a banned activity
It's the year of the Turin Shroud

This is the year of Britische Architect
Britische Architect

Why are we all driving on the right hand side of the road

There's too much plot in most drama
It gets in the way
I won't bore you with the details
But the architects never escaped
They were executed and hung inside the Tate

It's the end of surrealism
Now Dali's passed away
And it's the year of hedonism
An ugly ending to the architects' case

This is the year of Britische Architect
This is the year of Britische Architect
This is the year of Britische Architect
Britische Architect

I can speak six European languages
They never found the blood stain on the back seat
