Five miles out of London on the Western Avenue
Must have been a wonder when it was brand new
Talkin' 'bout the splendor of the Hoover factory
I know that you'd agree if you had seen it too

It's not a matter of life or death
But what is, what is?
It doesn't matter if I take another breath
Who cares? Who cares?

Green for go, green for action, from Park Royal to North Acton
Past scrolls and inscriptions like those of the Egyptian age
And one of these days the Hoover factory
Is gonna be all the rage in those fashionable pages

Five miles out of London on the Western Avenue
Must have been a wonder when it was brand new
Talkin' 'bout the splendor of the Hoover factory
I know that you'd agree if you had seen it too

It's not a matter of life or death
But what is, what is?
It doesn't matter if I take another breath
Who cares? Who cares?
