The Police

A Sermon – The Police

When you reach number ten
And think the struggle ends
But it ain’t the end
It’s only a trend

You have to unbend
‘Cause it’s only a trend
Don’t lose all your friends
Don’t make heroes end

When you reach number eight it ain’t no pearly gate
‘Cause it won’t satiate your growing appetite
You can ply your trade and push your crusade
Emancipate or indoctrinate, but the
Traps are all laid for and honest crusade
Your old values will fade as you struggle to make the grade
As you struggle to make the grade
(As you struggle to make the grade)
(You needn’t bother)

When you hit number four you’re almost through the door
But there’s a whole lot more you just can’t ignore
The telephone’s sure, you know the score
But don’t let this uproar dissipate your encore
It’s written in the news how you paid your dues
But you’ve no excuse for the people you abuse

When you reach number one you can beat your drum
You can sack your roadies in Birmingham
When your record is platinum, you can stick it to the bath,
To the wall like you’ve always planned
It’s written in the news how you paid your dues
But you’ve no excuse for the people you abuse

O My God – The Police

Everyone I know is lonely
And God’s so far away
And my heart belongs to no one
So now sometimes I pray
Please take this space between us
And fill it up some way
Take this space between us
And fill it up some way

O my God you take the biscuit
Treating me this way
Expecting me to treat you well
No matter what they say
How can I turn the other cheek
It’s black and bruised and torn
I’ve been waiting
Since the day that I was born

Take this space between us
And fill it up some way
Take this space between us
And fill it up some way

The fat man in his garden
The thin man at his gate
My God you must be sleeping
Wake up, it’s much too late

Take this space between us
And fill it up some way
Take this space between us
And fill it up some way

Do I have to tell the story
Of a thousand rainy days
Since we first met
It’s a big enough umbrella
But it’s always me that ends up getting wet
