Lyrics

Give me a rainy, grey, drizzly day
I feel okay when the skies are grey
Like a bullfrog in the reeds
A tiny pulse is all I need

Dismal city
That's where I belong
Dismal city
It's got it going on

Your idea of fun's not mine
I like to go where the sun don't shine
Sunlight falls it's much too harsh
I'd rather bloat in a cool dank marsh

Dismal city
That's where I belong
Dismal city
It's right here in this song

Through the endless grey parade
Of terraced houses in the shade
To the statues in the park
Where moss grows in the dark
Dismal city
That's where I belong

Plump & round on a lilipad
I think of you and I ain't half glad
Too much brightness is a blight
Twilight's where I feel alright

Dismal city
That's where I belong
Dismal city
I love it when it all goes wrong

England is a dismal place
Woah oh-oh oh-oh
I've got England on my face
Woah oh-oh oh-oh

Don't get too big for your boots
And don't stray too far from your roots
Negative, not moi, you know
I need someplace to go

Dismal city
That's where I belong
Dismal city
I love it when it all goes wrong
Dismal city
It's got it going on
Dismal city
That's where I belong
Oh yeah
