Wonderland (Single 1984)

Wonderland  4:40
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Cloth Cap Songs

Still they dig for gold
Fooled on city streets
With no regard for mine
We watch the same repeats
Repeat the same mistakes
And swore we'd get it right next time

Riding high in Wonderland
Another runner in the UK
See the crossing from Wonderland
Shipping it back to the USA

We gave all hope and house
Giro's to Khyber Pass
No one wants to live next door
Who runs the northern line?
Who rules the Union Jack?
Nothing's really cricket, watch the score

Riding high in Wonderland
Another runner in the UK
See the crossing from Wonderland
Shipping it back to the USA

After all we heard it all before
And still the wheels go round
And for all the changes that were made
British standard, where's the standard?

The Chinese take-away
On empire's striking back
Watch clockwork soldiers fall in line
Land of hope and glory
Ruled by class
Still the British way of life

Riding high in Wonderland
Another runner in the UK
See the crossing from Wonderland
Shipping it back to the USA

Blackheath (remix)  4:45
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

Take a seat we've got it made
You're moved to precision
We're all sold out of human rights
It's made your decision
Keep belief in avoiding wars
Keep faith in Santa Claus
Feel free the first time in your life
Give yourself away

Blackheath
Nothing goes on here
Blackheath
Nothing grows on here
Blackheath
Only children play

On your admission the ride is free
Whatever takes your fancy
It's time to change your life support
We've got the future bottled
One chance to get away from it all
What a way to go
No more fear from crazy toys
We got the answer

Blackheath
Nothing goes on here
Blackheath
Nothing grows on here
Blackheath
Only children playIf I believed in all I've read
I'd be marching with them to the black lands
Of the living dead

Blackheath
Nothing goes on here
Blackheath
Nothing grows on here
Blackheath
Only children play
