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, a Hitsville in U.K.
I know the boy was all alone, 'til 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 trade
No expense accounts, or lunch discounts or hyping up the charts
The band went in, and knocked 'em dead, in two minutes fifty-nine
I know the boy was all alone, 'til the Hitsville hit U.K.
So if

No slimy deals, with smarmy eels, in Hitsville U.K.
Lets shake an' say, "We'll operate, in Hitsville U.K."
I know the boy was all alone, 'til 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 n' boom, in your living room, in Hitsville U.K.
No consumer trials, or A.O.R, in Hitsville U.K.
I know the boy was all alone, 'til the Hitsville hit U.K.

Now the boys and girls are not alone, now the Hitsville's hit U.K.
I know the boys and girls are not alone, now the Hiitsville's hit U.K.
I know the boys and girls are not alone, now the Hiitsville's hit U.K.
I know the boys and girls are not alone, now the Hiitsville's hit U.K.
