Divine Comedy – National Express

Take the National Express when your life’s in a mess
It’ll make you smile
All human life is here from the feeble old dear
to the screaming child
From the student who knows that to have one of those
Would be suicide
To the family man Manhandling the pram
with paternal pride

And everybody sings ba ba ba da…
We’re going where the air is free

On the national express there’s a jolly hostess
Selling crisps and tea
She’ll provide you with drinks and theatrical winks
For a sky-high fee
Mini-skirts were in style when she danced down the aisle
Back in 63 (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
But it’s hard to get by when your arse is the size
Of a small country

And everybody sings ba ba ba da…
We’re going where the air is free
Tomorrow belongs to me

When you’re sad and feeling blue
With nothing better to do
Don’t just sit there feeling stressed
Take a trip on the National Express

    Going to look RIGHT NOW. I love this song – not the hugest fan of The Divine Comedy, but when they get it right, they are Ace.
