Verse
Cm           F              Bb                 Eb
We dig our models with the brains the size of models
Cm                     F             Bb         Eb
And cars that we can trust with out wives
Cm                  F             Bb             Eb
And we dig converstations with girls from every nation
Cm                      F             Bb      Eb
But not the ones that whisper or tell lies

Pre-Chorus
Cm                                F
Wherever theres a will theres a motorway
Bb                                Eb
Wherever there is greed there is speed
Cm                                       F
And theyve always got to be there for yesterday
Bb                              Eb
Welcome to the new scalextrics breed

Chorus
Cm                                 F
And the light they always show to them
    Bb            Eb
Is green, green, green
Cm                                F
And the heels they always show to me
    Bb            Eb
Are clean, clean, clean
Cm                                 F
And the light they always show to them
    Bb            Eb
Is green, green, green
Cm        F
Green, green

Verse
Cm                F          Bb            Eb
Were only flying past so we dig our sevice fast
           Cm              F          Bb          Eb
From the waiters to the women to the wine
Cm              F              Bb            Eb
Never mind the match, I've an urgent date to catch
Cm             F              Bb       Eb
Get me to the concert hall on time

Pre-Chorus
Cm                            F
Pretending to be pilots in a war
Bb                               Eb
Pretending to weave between the flak
Cm                              F
No-one knows what the missions for
Bb                       Eb
Blinkered horses on the track

Chorus
Cm                                 F
And the light they always show to them
    Bb            Eb
Is green, green, green
Cm                                F
And the heels they always show to me
    Bb            Eb
Are clean, clean, clean
Cm                                 F
And the light they always show to them
    Bb            Eb
Is green, green, green

Cm                                F
And the heels they always show to me
    Bb            Eb
Are clean, clean, clean
Cm                                 F
And the light they always show to them
    Bb            Eb
Is green, green, green
Cm        F
Green, green
