'Postcards from the British Empire' is the 3rd single (and title track) from 'Postcards from the British Empire: 12 Single in 12 Months'


'Postcards from the British Empire'

Woke up from a bad dream of cigarettes and a Civil War,
The English Army are fighting in but they don't know what they are fighting for.
Down the streets, down the avenues we used to meet on Fridays together, I love you forever.

Orange and green and blue and red,
I turned on the TV and they're all sleeping in the same old bed.
Don't think it will rain today, don't think it will rain today,
It's Friday forever, let's not talk about the weather!

Postcards from the British Empire

Walking through the old ghost town,
Pubs and churches have been closed down,
Woolworths is empty, all the money was spent last century.
On holidays, TV sets, second mortgages, bills and cigarettes.
All the things you couldn't afford,
But all the things that stopped you getting bored!

Postcards from the British Empire.
