They cried the tears, they shed the fears
Up and down the land
They stole guitars or used guitars
So the tape would understand

Without even the slightest hope
Of a thousand sales
Just as if, as if there was
Hitsville in U.K

I know the boy was all alone
Till the Hitsville hit U.K

Remember they say true talent
Will always emerge in time
When lightening hits small wonder
It's fast rough factory time

No expense accounts or lunch discounts
Or hyping up the charts
The band went in and knocked 'em dead
In two minitues fifty nine

I know the boy was all alone
Till the Hitsville hit U.K, so hit it

No slimy deals with smarmy eels
In Hitsville U.K
Let's shake and say, we'll operate
In Hitsville U.K

I know the boy was all alone
Till the Hitsville hit U.K

The mutants, creeps and muscle men
Are shaking like a leaf
It blows a hole in the radio
When it hasn't sounded good all week

A mike an' boom in your living room
In Hitsville U.K
No consumer trials, no I.O.R
In Hitsville U.K

I know the boy felt all alone
Till the Hitsville hit U.K

Now the boys and girls are not alone
Now that Hitsville hit U.K
I know the boys and girls are not alone
Now that Hitsville hit U.K

I know the boys and girls are not alone
Now that Hitsville hit U.K
I know the boys and girls are not alone
Now that Hitsville hit U.K
