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 
Days of speed and slow time Mondays Pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday Watching the news and not eating your tea

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
