Mind the Gap

Published August 5, 2011 by Aker

This song makes so much sense now after being on the London Undeground or Tube. Although it is cleaner than NYC subways, it is smaller, more cramped and the heat is unbearable most times because there is no air conditioning. I swear I sweated more in there than outside. Also, the tube stops working around midnight, so late night travel is harder.

Maybe I can do a song about the NYC subway system when I return. Haha.

Lyrics

Please give up this space
To someone worthy
Of course we are not worthy
To rest our bones
Ignore the human race
At your peril
Although magazine values
Are all around
I see tired and deflated faces
What is this thing un-happening

Climb on to the magic bus
Soon you will be part of us

Tra la la la lah (etc)
If you see an unattended package or bag
Donít ignore it, don’t touch it
Alert a police officer
Or a member of staff

Look out please, mind the gap
Watch out for the people trap
Here we are, going down
Hold on before we hit the ground
Look out please, mind the gap
Stiletto stuck, in the cracks
Look out please, mind the gap
Someone is gonna get a slap

Ditto, ok, that’s cool, that’s fine
Yes sir, no sir, sorry, no thanks

Dah dah dah dah, dah dah dah dah (etc)

Mind the gap, mind the gap
Better mind the gap, mind the gap

Tra la la la lah, la lah la la lah, la la lah …

    • Haha! Wow, that person really hates the tube, but I can understand. One time we had to wait outside of the station for almost half an hour because someone jumped on the tracks. Supposedly a lot of people here commit suicide via trains squishing them.
