North Sea Oil lyrics

Black and viscous bound to cure blue lethargy.
Sugar-plum petroleum for energy.
Tightrope-balanced payments need a small reprieve
Oh, please believe we want to be
in North Sea...
in North Sea Oil.
New-found wealth sits on the shelf of yesterday.
Hot-air balloon inflation soon will make you pay.
Riggers rig and diggers dig their shallow grave.
But we'll be saved and what we crave
is North Sea...
is North Sea Oil.

Prices boom in Aberdeen and London Town.
Ten more years to lay the fears, erase the frown.
Before we are all nuclear the better way!
Oh, let us pray: we want to stay
in North Sea...
in North Sea...
in North Sea Oil.
