F Dm7 Post office clerks put up signs saying 'Position Closed' F Dm7 And secretaries turn off typewriters and put on their coats Bb F C Bb Janitors padlock the gates for security guards to patrol F And bachelors phone up their friends for a drink C Bb While the married ones turn on a chat show F Bb F And they'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow F Dm7 'Gentlemen, time please, you know we can't serve any more' F Dm7 Now the traffic lights change to stop when there's nothing to go Bb F And by five' o' clock everything's dead C Bb And every third car is a cab, F And ignorant people sleep in there beds C Bb Like the doped white mice in the college lab Chorus: F Bb F Bb Nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all: Dm Bb The needle returns to the start of the song C Bb And we all sing along like before F Bb F And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow F C Dm7 Telephone exchanges click while there's nobody there F Dm7 The Martians could land in the car park and no one could care Bb F The close-circuit cameras in department stores C Bb Shoot the same movie everyday F And the stars of these films neither die nor get killed C Bb F Gm C Just to survive constant action replay Interlude: G Dm7 G Dm7 F G F G F F Dm7 Bill hoardings advertise products that nobody needs F Dm7 While 'Angry from Manchester' writes to complain about all the repeats on TV Bb F And computer terminals report C Bb Some gains on the values of copper and tin, F While American businessmen snap up Van Goghs C Bb F Gm C For the price of a hospital wing
