National Express - Lyrics to National Express

"National Express" was originally a song by the Divine Comedy. It was released as the third single from the album Fin de Siècle and reached number eight on the UK Singles Chart and number 18 in Ireland. The song is based on Neil Hannon's observations of life from the window of a National Express coach. Here is Bournemouth's Pudenski Brothers acoustic cover of the track filmed on Southbourne Grove at The Wight Bear Micro Pub.

Take the National Express when your life's in a mess

It'll make you smile

All human life is here

From the feeble old dear to the screaming child

From the student who knows that to have one of those

Would be suicide

To the family man

Manhandling the pram with paternal pride

And everybody sings, "Ba-ba-ba-da"

We're going where the air is free


On the National Express there's a jolly hostess

Selling crisps and tea

She'll provide you with drinks and theatrical winks

For a sky-high fee

Mini-skirts were in style when she danced down the aisle

Back in '63 (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

But it's hard to get by when your arse is the size

Of a small country

And everybody sings, "Ba-ba-ba-da"

We're going where the air is free

Tomorrow belongs to me


When you're sad and feeling blue

With nothing better to do

Don't just sit there feeling stressed

Take a trip on the National Express

On the National Express, let's go
