Over the wall we go Lyrics

Over the wall we go by David Bowie  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Over the wall we go Over the wall we go

All coppers are nanas

Over the wall we go

Leave him a note saying "Wish you was here"

I know the best ways to break out of here

I helped a young laddie called Ivan

Over the wall last night

Then he climbed back and he grabbed me tight

He uttered some words that I can't say to you

Cause he remembered that he was a screw


Over the wall we go

All coppers are nanas

Over the wall we go

Leave him a note wishing "Happy New Year"


My name is Henry

Some say I'm thick

I've spent half me life in and out of nick

Me mum sends me presents to keep me in style

Soggy old cakes and hundreds of files

God sussed all them files

I'm a clever young man

Now I'm just stupid with manicured hands


Over the wall we go

All coppers are nanas

Over the wall we go

Nobody's left and the screws are in tears


spoken

"Double 3, 427" "Here sir"

"Double 3, 428" "Here sir"

"Double 3, 429, Double 3, 429, where is he?"

"He went out for a cup of tea at the local football match sir"

"Oh.... well he might have invited me"


Over the wall we go

All coppers are nanas

Over the wall we go

Nobody's left and the screws are in tears


We tried digging tunnels but gave up the ghost

Just past the Kensington Yards at the most

Our limbs was aching, we felt pretty pooped

Our clothes they was tatty, our hallows did droop

We crawled back to safety, our hearts filled with gloom

Cause we'd dug ourselves through to the smallest room


Over the wall we go

All coppers are nanas

Over the wall we go

Leave him a note wishing "Happy New Year"


spoken

[knock knock knock]

"Hello, who is it?"

"Double 3, 429, guv"

"Oh, hang on a minute...

Hello sonny Jim

Been wondering where you were

Did you have a nice Christmas?"
