In Pearl City
Pearl City
No-one knows, no-one cares
about your world of stocks and shares 

I don't need no riding crop
I don't need no roundabout stop 

You're welcome to Pearl City 
See the bank 
Bright white trains
You old coots
retired early 

At Pearl City

It's salad for the new educated 'teach'
Everything is gonna work out fine
They're sleepin' us in the lec-lecturer line
In Pearl City 

In Pearl City 
Ye over-counter drugs
Have left you totally bushwhacked 

In Pearl City 
We asked Vauxhall drivers
what they wanted from a garage
Did ya? Did ya? 

At service center on the rock 
Pearl City 
I don't need a bird beggin at my knees
I don't need no riding crop
I don't need no roundabout stop 

(Are you on the ball?)
