"I Helped Patrick McGoohan Escape" as written by and Edward Ball....
Once long ago lived a man
Who made a TV show
Spent all his savings
Every penny
So that we would know
But this poor man had few fans
And his boss wouldn't pay him
So I thought up a way for him to escape

I helped Patrick McGoohan escape
Now he's hiding from the human race
Yes he is
Yes he is

We made sure that the rovers were fast asleep
And Number 2 was...
Making a blast to kidnap Paul McCartney
We took a bus
We took a boat
And finally we took a train
And...away to the USA
That's where he's been until this day

I helped Patrick McGoohan escape
He lives next door to the man in the suitcase
Yes he does
Yes he does

Where am I?
In the village
What do you want?
Information
You won't get it
By hook or by crook we will
Whose side are you on?
That would be telling
Who are you?
The new Number 2
Who is Number 1?
You are Number 6
I'm not a number
I'm a free man

I helped Patrick McGoohan escape
Now he's hiding from the human race
I helped Patrick McGoohan escape
He lives next door to the man in the suitcase
