Midweek Music Lyrics by Suffolk songsters
Gimme the keys
You ain't gonna see me for dust
The Barnby Bends ain't gonna get the better of me
Gimme the keys
To any old bucket of rust
The Acle Straights are gonna take me to where I wanna be

Stuck in a rut
Stuck in a rut for eternity
Stuck in a rut
Stuck in a rut for eternity

The Darkness (Stuck in a Rut from Permission To Land)
