"Extra Special Bitter" as written by and David Scott Lucas....
Rising from the rubble of trust
Searching for an open restaurant
On our greatest day
Boys and girls have made their case
They will wish us well and they'll save face
and turn on feet of clay
A take in tune, a change explained
On our greatest day
Tag me out of losing games
On our greatest day
The fact remains
We're still the same
They won't change the names, in the biography
Of our greatest day

Driving through the blizzard of luck
Crawl among the jack-knifed semi-trucks
Life's a leaving train
Raise the bar and lower the rent
You and me, an excellent accident
So twist the knife away
And if you will, then I will too
On our greatest day
A change explained, a take in tune
On our greatest day
You clap for me, I'll clap for you
On our greatest day
We'll testify
Time to drop the dime
And I won't change my mind but I'm so terrified
On our greatest day

And life's a leaving train
If we should fade to black and white
On our greatest day
Or disappear into good night
On our greatest day
Boys and girls will testify
On our greatest day
And I'm not scared, I'm terrified
On our greatest day
And I won't care
Because I won't know
And I'll never care
And I'll never know
