China Crisis Safe as houses Lyrics

Last updated:

Safe as houses
built on quicksand
because I place my trust
in small time tricksters comin' on crooks
I know the strain of day to day
busy, busy everybody
I've seen the strangest times
it's far from noticed
busy, busy everybody
I know the strain of day to day

I shook up my world
and stood back in amazement
I saw the greatest of worlds (might be "I sold the greatest of worlds")
to be the cheapest attraction

Safe as houses
built on quicksand
because I don't compete
for nobody's place
could make it any different
I know the strain of day to day
busy, busy everybody
if you could talk me down
I would not want for anything or anyone

I shook up my world
and stood back in amazement
I saw the greatest of worlds
to be the cheapest attraction

Safe as houses
built on quicksand
because I waste my time
in backstreet dealings
give me nothing everytime
I know the strain of day to day
busy, busy everybody
I've seen the cruelest times
it's far from noticed
busy, busy everybody
