The High Street shops are boarded up
And the terrace, it is fenced in
See-through shields are walled across
The way that you came in

But there's no need to get excited
As the lorries bring the bacon in
'Cause the housewives are all singing:
"Groovy times are here again!"

The discovered one Black Saturday
That mobs don't march, they run (they run)
So you can excuse the nervous triggerman
Just this once for jumping the gun

They were picking up the dead
Out of the broken glass
"Yes, it's Number One!" the radio said
"Groovy times have come to pass!"

Groovy times
Groovy times
Groovy times

That's groovy!

Yeah, the intake is on the uptake
The acceleration's pretty grim
I can remember his first appearance -
Now look what's happened to him!

So they put him in a dog suit
Like from 1964
The king of early evening ITV:
Groovy times forever more

Groovy times
Groovy times

Groovy times
Groovy times
Groovy times

Groovy times
Groovy times
Groovy times
