To enter Paradise is really not that hard
To become a Muslim saint, you must by raped by God
There's no point in doing things by halves
21st-century imaginations ain't what they used to be
A man could lose his marbles in the home counties
It's all a question of degrees

Gomez, Gomez, I gave you the best years of my life
American tours and the Mercury Prize
But now the chicks all squeal and the chicks all squeak
For the Stockwell Strangler and Seasick Pete

I was driving through Berkshire in a Vauxhall Astra
When I stumbled into the Broadmoor Blues Delta

Air-raid siren, Monday morning, over the wall
The man who tried to kidnap Princess Anne is going on tour
[???] once more by rock and roll's profession

Gomez, Gomez, so hard to classify
No genre can hold you, and this can't be right
But now the chicks all squeal and the chicks all squeak
For Charlie Bronson and Seasick Pete

I was driving through Berkshire in a Vauxhall Astra
When I strayed into the Broadmoor Blues Delta

The psychiatric unit is having a sing-song
To Hound Dog Taylor and Robert Johnson
But there's a riot going on in Cell Block 9
That caught the MTV blues of the White Stripes

If you ever find yourself in a Vauxhall Astra
For God's sake, don't stray into the Broadmoor Blues Delta

Dear Gomez, please accept my letter of resignation
Lord knows we've had our differences
But only one institution can hold me, and I know where my heart lies
It's back on the Broadmoor Blues Delta, Gomez
That's where my heart lies
On the Broadmoor Blues Delta
Back on the Broadmoor Blues Delta
That's where my heart lies
On the Broadmoor Blues Delta
Bye, bye, Gomez
Bye, bye
