KinksShangri-La

Now that youve found your paradise This is your kingdom to command You can go outside and polish your car Or sit by the fire in your shangri-la Here is your reward for working so hard Gone are the lavatories in the back yard Gone are the days when you dreamed of that car You just want to sit in your shangri-la Put on your slippers and sit by the fire Youve reached your top and you just can't get any higher Youre in your place and you know where you are In your shangri-la Sit back in your old rocking chair You need not worry, you need not care You can't go anywhere Shangri-la, shangri-la, shangri-la The little man who gets the train Got a mortgage hanging over his head But he's too scared to complain Cos he's conditioned that way Time goes by and he pays off his debts Got a tv set and a radio For seven shillings a week Shangri-la, shangri-la, shangri-la, shangri-la, shangri-la, shangri-la And all the houses in the street have got a name Cos all the houses in the street they look the same Same chimney pots, same little cars, same window panes The neighbors call to tell you things that you should know They say their lines, they drink their tea, and then they go They tell your business in another shangri-la The gas bills and the water rates, and payments on the car Too scared to think about how insecure you are Life aint so happy in your little shangri-la Shangri-la, shangri-la la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la Put on your slippers and sit by the fire Youve reached your top and you just can't get any higher Youre in your place and you know where you are In your shangri-la Sit back in your old rocking chair You need not worry, you need not care You can't go anywhere Shangri-la, shangri-la, shangri-la, shangri-la, shangri-la, shangri-la
