Lyrics and music by Squire Squier.
Recorded on our little wonky rig in a big derelict house near the bustling nocturnal meat market in Farringdon, London, Autumn 2006.


Little Michael's got, hydraulic legs, and he's got 4 hours to spare.
Ingenious devices. Don't get them wet.
Keep well oiled to prevent, upsets.

Nobody likes it. When machines. Go WRONG
(nobody likes it)
There's an awful lot of, muh muh muh muh muh muh
sha sha sha sha SHA sha, Sha sha shuh shuh shu CHINES

Flip switch data patents
Pistons bleeps and buttons
Wrap 'em up in our 5/10 pound notes
and close all our curtains.

21 years around the SUN again
but there are lies and fears in the hearts of men
We are all moving closer to extinction.

Little Michael's, still got hydraulic legs
and he's got just under 4 hours to spare.
Won't heed the scientists,
they'll have him DEAD.

Remains incredulous to prevent, upsets.
We are all moving closer to extinction.
(moving closer to extinction)
(years around the SUN again, lies and fears in the hearts of men)

Legs he's got, hydraulic (ALL repeat)

and i would like to meet some more people like him.
