"Parklife" as written by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James and David Rowntree....
Confidence is a preference for the habitual voyeur of what is known as
(Parklife)
And morning soup can be avoided if you take a route straight through what is known as
(Parklife)

John's got brewer's droop he gets intimidated by the dirty pigeons, they love a bit of him
(Parklife)
Who's that gut lord marching, you should cut down on your porklife mate, get some exercise

All the people
So many people
And hey all go hand-in-hand
Hand-in-hand through their parklife
Know what I mean?

I get up when I want except on Wednesdays when I get rudely awakened by the dustmen
(Parklife)
I put my trousers on, have a cup of tea and I think about leaving the house
(Parklife)

I feed the pigeons, I sometimes feed the sparrows too
It gives me a sense of enormous well-being
(Parklife)
And then I'm happy for the rest of the day safe in the knowledge there will always be a bit of my heart devoted to it

All the people
So many people
And they all go hand-in-hand
Hand-in-hand through their parklife

Parklife
(Parklife)
Parklife
(Parklife)

It's got nothing to do with Vorsprung durch technique, you know?
(Parklife)
(Parklife) and it's not about you joggers who go round and round and round (parklife)
(Parklife)

All the people
So many people
And they all go hand-in-hand
Hand-in-hand through their parklife

All the people
So many people
And they all go hand-in-hand
Hand-in-hand through their parklife

    General CommentMost of the lyrics were inspired by the novel 'London Fields' by Martin Amis.

    The first verse refers to the upper class society for example on the first line "Confidence is a preference for the habitual voyeur of what is known as..." at the time there were stories of affairs in the paper concerning government. I took it as Albarn saw these people in power confident enough to pursue there sexual favors just because of the power they processed.

    "Johns got brewers droop" could have too meanings, he could be referring to the erectile dysfunction or he cud be referring to the US politician David Brewer who was considered a strong conservative at the time.

    And the last line of the first verse is just a piss take of the upper class and how there viewed

    Well that's my opinion :)
