Trapped in a box
There’s no way out
There’s no hole in here
And nobodys about
I can’t get myself out of this mess
No I can’t get myself out of this mess
No no can do

Please it’s time
Please it’s time
Please it’s time for us to leave

CHORUS — But Oh! What if we go- o —o?
Will we disappear into another atmosphere
Hey! What will they say —ay- ay?
Will they think that we’re the ones
The ones that got away?!


Well I can’t seem to find a door in this wall
And there’s no end to this tunnel
Whoopsadaisy here I go again!
But wait this isn’t a dead end
There’s another route round I’ve found a friend
To help me out and lift my bucket out of this well

Please it’s time
Please it’s time
Please it’s time for us to leave

CHORUS — But Oh! What if we go- o —o?
Will we disappear into another atmosphere
Hey! What will they say —ay- ay?
Will they think that we’re the ones
The ones that got away?!

WE’RE THE ONES THE ONES THAT GOT AWAY (repeated till end)

(Time is the essence and it’s running away
Faster than me, Oh I wish I could stay
But this the ending, my time is near
No use pretending I’m the only one
Hold onto your hats, your scarves and your gloves
Brace the outside and run girl run
Feet are there to carry us
Feet are there to carry us)
