Silver lights are flashing all along the motorway
Must be at least two thousand travellers who are twenty-one today

They're going down to London Town with a banknote in each hand
They live so they can die in England's green and pleasant land
Well, some of them take to the roads and some do wear a tie
Big brother watches all of them but all must live the lie
We say good night, sleep tight
Well, it's a good night, stay bright
Well, it's good night, that is right: tomorrow was today
Well, it's good night, sleep tight
Well, it's a good night, stay bright
Well, it's good night, that is right: tomorrow was today

They rise each morning early to workhouse office rules
Grow gardens on their window sills, grow children in their schools
They say good night, sleep tight
Well, it's a good night, stay bright
Well, it's good night, that is right: tomorrow was today

Every day's the same: the names have all been changed
The rent is overdue and so is Christmas too
They pay you by the hour for painting Blackpool Tower

Well, me: I'll just sit tight and write my epitaph
But, then again, I may get laid by the laundromat
When the night-light has been lit
I'll squeeze some lady's t… knee

Santa Claus died yesterday, Robin Hood is in the nick
For stealing from the people and giving to the rich
He says good night, sleep tight
Well, it's a good night, stay bright
Well, it's good night, that is right: tomorrow was today
Well, it's good night, sleep tight
Well, it's a good night, stay bright
Well, it's good night, that is right: tomorrow was today
