Is it Cologne with it's great cathedral?   Milan with it's glamour and it's pace?   London with it's river and it's bridges?   Lisbon with it's beauty and it's grace?   Funny looking buses   Climb it's pot-bellied hills   And a solitary jogger   Times the time he kills   Do you know where I'm gonna go?   None of you have guessed, so none of you can know   If you've been, that's not where I mean   It's got class and it's got excellence like you've never seen   Your town is dragging me down   Dragging me down, down, down   Your town is dragging me down   Dragging me down, down, down   Is it Dublin with it's culture and it's wit?   Madrid with it's market square?   Paris with it's bustling cafes?   Hull with it's musical flair?   Do you know where I'm gonna go?   None of you have guessed so none of you can know   If you've been, that's not where I mean   It's got class and it's got excellence like you've never seen   Your town is dragging me down   Is dragging me down, down, down   Your town is dragging me down   Is dragging me down, down, down   As I watch them drop the grain into your fish tank brain   How can you like this place when it never even rains?   Never even rains   Your town is dragging me down   Is dragging me down, down, down   Your town is dragging me down   Is dragging me down, down, down   Is dragging me down, down, down   Is dragging me down, down, down   Is dragging me down, down, down
