News at ten

Watching the news at ten o'clock waiting for the stories to be read,

to hear about what's happening in the world and of the people who are dead.

News at ten, news at ten, news at ten tonight.

You see reporters in the thick of it all trying to look so really brave,

you see poor bastards dying all around won't settle till they're in their grave.

News at ten, news at ten, news at ten tonight.

You feel depressed at half past ten at the end of another day,

wondering what tomorrow will bring and what the shit the news will say.

News at ten, news at ten, news at ten tonight.

Watching the news at ten o'clock waiting for the stories to be read,

to hear about what's happening in the world and of the people who are dead.

News at ten, news at ten, news at ten tonight.
