Lyrics

A police car and a screaming siren A pneumatic drill and ripped up concrete A baby wailing and stray dog howling The screech of brakes and lamp light blinking That's entertainment, that's entertainment A smash of glass and a rumble of boots An electric train and a ripped up 'phone booth Paint splattered walls and the cry of a tomcat Lights going out and a kick in the balls That's entertainment, that's entertainment Days of speed and slow time Mondays Pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday Watching the news and not eating your tea A freezing cold flat and damp on the walls That's entertainment, that's entertainment Waking up at six am on a cool warm morning Opening the windows and breathing in petrol An amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard Watching the tele and thinking about your holidays That's entertainment, that's entertainment Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume A hot summer's day and sticky black tarmac Feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away That's entertainment, that's entertainment Two lovers kissing amongst the scream of midnight Two lovers missing the tranquillity of solitude Getting a cab and travelling on buses Reading the graffiti about slashed seat affairs That's entertainment, that's entertainment
