about

Imagine an obsessive tourist who is addicted to his London guidebook. The more he thinks about his trip, the more unrealistic, outlandish and delusional his itinerary becomes.
The Ritz and Buckingham Palace are in the vicinity of Green Park station. Pelicans reside in nearby St. James' Park.
Tom Robinson (of 2-4-6-8 Motorway, War Baby and Glad to be Gay fame) has remastered this track.

lyrics

I'll take a London bus from Bank to Asia Minor
Green Park
I'll have my at tea the Ritz, I'm a real winer-diner
Green Park
Pop into Buckingham Palace to have biscuits with the Queen and Prince Philip
Green Park
Straight out on the lash with Kate, Wills and Prince Harry
Oh yeah!

You gotcha -
I've gotta tick off all the things on my list
(8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1)
It's gotta be in the book
(It's like an itch that won't go away)
You're always welcome to take a look

Let's burn a Titian - post the ashes to my Aunty
Green Park
Bungee jump from the Shard whilst singing a sea shanty
Green Park
Got talking to a pelican in St. James' Park - his name is 'Bill'
Green Park
Steal plastic bowler hats and throw them in the river
Oh yeah!

You gotcha -
I've gotta tick off all the things on my list
(8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1)
It's gotta be in the book
(You can't leave it alone)
You're always welcome to take a look
