Introduction

D G D Em

EmIn ChocoDlate GTown all the Ctrains are paintDed Gbrown, and the Csilver Dpaper of the Gwrapper. There's a Emdapper littDle Gman, and he Cwears a wax DmuGstache That he Ctwists with nicDotine Gfingers as he Cdrops his cigaDrette Gash. And Dsomeone comes and sweeps it up, and Gthen he doffs his cap And there's a Drat in someone's bedroom, and they're Gshutting someone's trap. And they'll Emsoon be pulling Ddown the little palaces. And the Emdoors swing back Dand Gforward, from the Cpast into Dthe Gpresent And the Cbedside cruDciGfixion turns from Cwood to DphosphoGrescent. And they're Dmoving problem families from the GSouth up to the North, DMother's crying over some soft Gsoap opera divorce, And you Csay you didn't do it, but you Fknow you did of Dcourse, And they'll Emsoon be pulling Ddown the little palaces. It's like Emshouting in Da Gmatchbox, filled with Cplasterboard Dand Ghope, Like a Cpicture of DPrince GWilliam in the Carms of John Dthe GPope. There's a Emworld of good DinGtentions, and Cpity in Dtheir Geyes, TA0he sedaCted homes ofD EnGgland, are thCeirs to vandaDliGze. So you Dknock the kids about a bit, Gbecause they've got your name, And you Dknock the kids about a bit, unGtil they feel the same. And they Emfeel like knocking Ddown the little palaces.

You're the Emtwinkle in Dyour Gdaddy's eye, a Cname you Dspray and Gscribble, You made the Cgirls all turn Dtheir Gheads, and in Cturn they made Dyou Gmiserable. To Embe the heir DapGparent, to the Ckingdom of Dthe Ginvisible. So you Dknock the kids about a bit, Gbecause they've got your name, And you Dknock the kids about a bit, unGtil they feel the same. And they Emfeel like knocking Ddown yeah they Cfeel like knocking Gdown, Oh they Emfeel like knocking Ddown the little palaces. Repeat instrumental twice
