Another feature film about an air-line disaster
Another news item and another newscaster
But there's worst to come at the arrival gate
There's a crack on board and it's running in freight

Well the fruit of the poppy take up all your time
Getting high by the hands of re-organised crime
Put the put the squeeze on the Colombian leaf
Make the brother a liar and a sister a thief

It's nothing like velvet, nothing like velvet
It's nothing like velvet but it starts off smooth
Nothing like velvet and a rut's not a groove
It's nothing like velvet when it's pound on pound
Nothing like velvet when you're underground

They're shooting up Glasgow, shooting up Leeds
There was never this peril with the stems and seeds
And the hip and the right have got nothing to say
Except, "It's out of control and it's headed your way"

It's nothing like velvet, nothing like velvet

And I loved Charlie Parker but you know he did us harm
Every time he left to pour that inspiration in his arm

It's nothing like velvet but it starts off smooth
Nothing like velvet and a rut's not a groove
It's nothing like velvet when it's pound on pound
Nothing like velvet when you're underground
