National Express
The Divine Comedy Lyrics


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

@hoogabooga if you're into biking, watch "Braydon Bringhurst 8600ft" film that just came out ten days ago. Most insane thing I have ever seen. it's a long documentary though, maybe skim through it. INSANE. He CLIMBS the whole enchalada in one day

@hoogabooga me too. And I downloaded the song and listen to it while riding a lot, lol. When my legs are crying out I just try to keep a positive mental attitude with this song, and pedal to the song. Does a lot for my mental side. I try to stay happy and content like how Danny looks in the video riding, and not get bogged down and slouch etc. It's a song I don't mind having on repeat for a while. Amazing wee video. Had to fill his tires with water to get him to ride through that puddle🤣🤣
