Watford Gap! Strum's Songs - index
HOME
Watford Gap, Watford Gap,
Just the place if you need a crap.
They take your money and they feed you pap,
Then back on the road from Watford Gap.
When the road begins to blur,
And your bowels start to stir,
There's swift relief available to you.
It's the frontier between North and South,
You can take the chance to stuff your mouth,
And do the things a man just has to do.

Serving chips since '59,
Warmed them up from time to time,
English catering design,
Underneath the Blue Boar sign.
Watford Gap, Watford Gap,
Just the place if you need a crap.
They take your money and they feed you pap,
Then back on the road from Watford Gap.

But if you look over the wall,
There's a placid, calm canal
And a railway that tunnels 'neath the hill.
There's a world outside the motorway
That you really ought to see someday,
Don't wait too long, or you never will.
Watford Gap, Watford Gap,
Northerners and Southerners overlap.
Where children scream and parents snap,
Where truckers truck and slappers slap.
Watford Gap, Watford Gap,
Just the place if you need a crap.
They take your money and they feed you pap,
Then back on the road from Watford Gap.
