England Lost

(Lost, lost, lost, lost)
I went to see England, but England lost
I went to see England, but England lost
And everyone said we were all ripped off
I went to see England, but England lost
 
(Lost, lost, lost)
It wasn't much fun standin' in the rain
And we all yelled loud and we all complained
Wasn't much of a game
I got soaked
I didn’t want to come anyway
 
I went to see England, but England lost
I went round the back, but they said “Piss off!”
I went to see England, but England lost
I went to see England, but England...
I went to see...
I went...
I...
 
I lost the plot, think I lost the point
Think I’ll go home and smoke a joint,
Anyway, didn’t wanna go
 
I went to find England, it wasn't there
I went to find England, it wasn't there
I think I lost it down the back of my chair
I think I'm losing my imagination
I'm tired of talking about immigration
 
You can't get in and you can't get out
I guess that’s what it’s really all about
 
[Skepta]
It's a déjà vu, I've seen it all before
Different season, same score
Everybody wants your head on a spike
But they were singin' your praises a day before
No new faces allowed in
This is getting overcrowded
You’re still fighting over houses
So I just pick it up, put it down and leave it where I found it
Feel like Macaulay Culkin, I'm home alone
Come to my window and throw a stone
Because I never wanna talk on the phone
Same problems, growin' up in the danger zone
Nothing's changed, same story
Same dirty stains on your dirty laundry
People on the streets, doin' all the work
And the men in the suits taking all the glory
 
I went to find England but
I went to find England but
I went to find England but
I went to find England but England’s lost
 
(Lost, lost, lost, lost) x2
 
I had a girl in Lisbon, and a girl in Rome
Now I'll have to stay at home
Lock the shutters, bolt the doors
London’s gonna be like Singapore
But not as hot
 
(Lost, lost, lost, lost)
They didn't turn up, the pundits complained
No real passion, it’s a national shame
They're much too young and much too old
Blowing much too hot and much too cold
That's what I thought
 
I went to find England
I went to find England
I went to find England
I went to find England, but England's lost.

The lyrics are wrong. Last part is nothing like the original lyrics.

Have you a better, more accurrate version? Here is only the text of the song, without spoken texts from the videoclip. If you can wright down it in the comment, I'll add it. The second clip contains additional verse, spoken by Skepta, that I add in parentheses.

I see that you found the lyrics video... compare that to your lyrics. You'll see the differences. They are quite obvious.
I'll give you an example: "So lock the shallows, bolt the doors/Nothing's gonna be like Singapore" (your version) vs. "So lock the SHUTTERS, bolt the doors/LONDON'S gonna be like Singapore" (Vevo version).

As you can see from the the original video posted here, the lines, which declaimed Skepta, are not used in. But with "London" and "shutters" you are right. Not my mistake, because this is how the lyrics were published in the english press. I have corrected it.

The lyrics in the vid sure make more sense than the current transcription.
The rather nonsensical variants do not bode well for the English press Regular smile

If you send corrections or corrected text - I will change it

Is that better? (I've got it from eirini.darkheart)

I went to see England, but England lost
I went to see England, but England lost

I went to see England, but England lost
I went to see England, but England lost
Lost, lost, lost

I went to see England, but England lost
I went to see England, but England...
I went to see...
I went...
I lost the plot, think I lost the point
Think I’ll go home and smoke a joint, anyway
Didn’t wanna go
I went to find England, it wasn't there
I went to find England, it wasn't there
I think I lost it down the back of my chair
I think I'm losing my imagination
I'm tired of talking about immigration

Sounds ok to me, except the formatting could use a few line breaks.
If that's ok with you, I could change the lyrics, fix the format and double-check them.
What do you say to that?

petit élève    Vasárnap, 25/03/2018 - 16:23

Should be ok now.
