Lyrics To Unwritten Songs

The Fat Lady Sings

Can we get there in time                       (Arthur’s Verse)
You’re asking me now
Sure dear I answer
But I don’t know how

If we get there in time                           (Evelyn’s Verse)
We’ll see cannonballs a flying
Hear elephant’s trumpets
See a mime that is crying

The night is still young, girl                 (Arthur’s Chorus)

We should get there in time                 (Arthur’s Verse)
So there’s no need to shout
We’ll see lions jump rope
If tonight’s not sold out

Will we get there in time                   (Evelyn’s Verse)
To see clowns and their gags
With funny red noses
And crappy old bags

The night is still young, girl                 (Arthur’s Chorus)

We will get there in time                      (Arthur’s Verse)
Toute le monde will be there
To hear the band play
And breathe in fresh air

We must get there in time                    (Evelyn’s Verse)
To see old men cry
Hear the fat lady sing
See red roses fly

The night is still young, girl                 (Arthur’s Chorus)

We’re Not Breaking Out

We’re not breaking out, sir
This hole is for air
Yes, the spoons are for digging
We could use a new pair
Could you give us a hand, sir
We’re not breaking out
We could use some fresh air
So there’s no need to shout

There’s no need to shout, sir
There’s no need to shout
You’ve made yourself clear, sir
There’s not need to shout

We’re not breaking out, sir
Though we’ve come a long way
There’s light at the end
And we don’t want to stay
In this cesspool you have, sir
There are killers about
There are rapists and sinners
But there’s no need to shout

There’s no need to shout, sir
There’s no need to shout
You’ve made yourself clear, sir
There’s no need to shout

The sun is shining in our eyes
We haven’t said our goodbyes
And I don’t think we’ll see you again
No, we’ll never see you again

We’re not breaking out, sir
People are trying to break in
If you’d just turn a blind eye
Have some wine, have some gin
You can have all you like, sir
As we’re on our way out
There’s a thick wall between us
So it’s useless to shout

There’s no need to shout, sir
There’s no need to shout
You’ve made yourself clear, sir
There’s no need to shout

 

Evelyn, My Love

It’s not too late for love, my love
Take my hand and we’ll be leaving
I don’t look much of a man
But you know looks can be deceiving
You said you’ve lost in love but
It’s not too late to give up believing

It’s not too soon for love, my love
Though the week is nearly done
Next to you I might look dull
Next to me you look like fun
If you knew me like I do
You’d know together we could run

It’s not too quick for love, my love
Except I wonder if you’d want to
There’s a world I’d like to know
I’d like to get to know the real you
Take my hand don’t let it go
Share with me all that you’ve been through

The time is right for love, my love
The time is right so start believing
Though you wonder if I’m true
I bet you I’m not deceiving
I’d like to linger round your finger
And not be thinking about leaving

 

Oh Me Oh My

London is the place where I would like to die
It’s got St Paul’s, Tower Bridge and the great London Eye
It’s not one out of many
London’s worth your every penny
Though some people are uncanny
Like the baby murdering nanny

Oh me, oh my
London is the place where I would like to die

The Thames is full of shit but it’s a lovely sight
Just like Amen Court and the Southbank by night
Old Bailey’s just and fair
She’s got a tale or two to share
When babies’ bodies were everywhere
She put Amelia in good care

Oh me, oh my
London is the place where I would like to die

Have you ever seen a place
Grander than life
Better pack your bags
Grab your trouble and strife
Hop on a boat
Hop on a train
Better hop on a plane

You know it takes all sorts and London has them all
At Downing Street, Canary Wharf and at the Royal Albert Hall
People working round the clock
Some put you into a state of shock
Amelia Dyer wants to talk.
She’ll meet you again at Dead Man’s walk

Oh me, oh my
London is the place where I am bound to die

 

Queen Anne’s Revenge

We’ll set sail just as soon as the winds are right
If the wind won’t come we’ll be here for the night
So, drink up me hearties, yo ho
Drink up me hearties, yo ho

Ninety men were killed but we won’t shed a tear
‘Cause they weren’t ours and we know no fear
So, drink up me hearties, yo ho
Drink up me hearties, yo ho

Queen Anne’s Revenge and her forty guns
With a well-aimed shot she will burn your buns
So, drink up me hearties, yo ho
Drink up me hearties, yo ho

We’ve got rum, we’ve got beer
All the pirates are here
There is nothing to fear tonight
Edward teach us a song
So we can all sing along
We’ll sing all through the night

And Edward stood up
As he raised his cup
His voice booming mighty low
We’ll set sail just as soon as the winds are right
If the wind won’t come we’ll be here for the night
So, drink up me hearties, yo ho

When the band joined in
They all started to sing

We’ll set sail just as soon as the winds are right
If the wind won’t come we’ll be here for the night
So, drink up me hearties, yo ho
And before too long
They all sang his song

We’ll set sail just as soon as the winds are right
If the wind won’t come we’ll be here for the night
So, drink up me hearties, yo ho
Drink up me hearties, yo ho
