The complete lyrics:

(main riff)

(Verse:)
Welcome to this empty ministry of plenty
As I'm sure you know
We're clearly on display here
To remind you should you stray from here
Or decide to roam

(Prechorus:)
Dossers dream of gossamer
And kssing with tongues
Well, they're falling in love with anyone
Races from all places and all under one sun,
well it sure was no fun
So I got up and ran, ran, ran from Mungo City

(Chorus:)
Mungo City- Where are you?
You make us grey when skies are blue
Mungo City, in the sky
Keeps a watchful eye on you and I

(Main riff)

(Verse:)
Don't think you're even thinking
Even though you're thinking: keep it underground
They're sending out distress codes
And playing with your mind though
You won't hear a sound

(Prechorus:)
Nazis in the Japanese cars from Japan
Well, they're falling in love if onlythey can
I'm telling you the tribesman wouldn't stand for this, man
Well, it sure was no scam
So I got up and ran, ran, ran from Mungo City

(Chorus:)
Mungo City- Where are you?
You make us grey when skies are blue
(and) Mungo City, in the sky
Keeps a watchful eye on you tonight

(Main riff)

(Chorus with vocoder)

(Chorus)

(Main riff repeated with vocoder until fade out...)

Weeee.... that was fun.
