British Invasion

(unreleased song, 1985)

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Verse 1:

I knew you'd come back
For some more of that American Dream
Back in '63 I was
Teething on my Daddy's knee
But your Lonely Heart's Club Band
Ended before we began
To even understand
How to imagine

Chorus:

One if by land
Two if by sea
Three if by video
Ready and waiting
Ah... British Invasion
Ah... British Invasion

Verse 2:

You expect me to believe
That some starch-shirted
Business man
Understood enough to be a
Leader on the Protest Stand
Rock and Roll still plays
But the feling is not the same
Was there really a Penny Lane?
Was I born too late

Chorus:

One if by land
Two if by sea
Three if by video
Ready and waiting
Ah... British Invasion
Ah... British Invasion

Bridge:

Come back
Come back

Chorus:

One if by land
Two if by sea
Three if by video
Ready and waiting
Ah... British Invasion
Ah... British Invasion
