Zis is zer Big Vun! I've been working on this for over a week. Still niot totally happy with it, but it's probably as good as it's going to get...

Maggedon by the Dashboard Light

I. Maggedon

Crowley:
I remember every little thing,
As if it happened only yesterday,
Up from the Pit,
To get the humans cast from the light.

Aziraphale:
And I never had a doubt,
You were evil, I was good.
But I broke the rules,
When I gave them the sword that night.

Crowley:
And now the world going to end tonight.

Aziraphale:
I've been told it's good, but can it be right?

Crowley:
'Cos we're keeping the world balanced on the edge of a knife,
Keeping the world balanced on the edge of a knife,
So come on, hold tight. Come on, hold tight.

As the Bentley rushes through the deep, dark night,
I can see Maggedon by the dashboard light.

Azraphale: There's no doubt about it, as a team we're best,
Because you're just barely damned and I'm barely blessed.

There's no doubt about it,

Crowley:
But is there any need to shout it?

Aziraphale:
There's no doubt about it, as a team we're best,

Crowley:
'Cause I'm just barely damned and you're barely blessed.

Aziraphale:
Crowley, did you get the word?

Crowley:
Yeah, it overrode the radio.
We've been waiting so long,
But now the End Days have begun.

And I gotta let you know,
That I really do regret it,
It's no surprise,
That the Prince of Lies,
Wants to end the light
But I've always found mortals fun.

And now the world going to end tonight.

Aziraphale:
I've been told it's good, but can it be right?

Crowley:
'Cos we're keeping the world balanced on the edge of a knife,
Keeping the world balanced on the edge of a knife,
So come on, hold tight. Come on, hold tight.

As the Bentley rushes through the deep, dark night,
I can see Maggedon by the dashboard light.

Aziraphale:
We've got to follow The Plan,
And have faith and all the rest.
But there's no doubt about it as a team we're best
Because you're just barely damned and I'm barely....

Both:
The world is going to end tonight,
You know it's going, it's going to end tonight,
The world is going to end tonight,
You know it's going, it's going to end tonight,

The world is going to end tonight,
You know it's going, it's going to end tonight,
The world is going to end tonight,
You know it's going, it's going to end tonight,

Announcer:
Hello, you're listening to the local news on Radio Tadfield, and what a day it's been! The earthquakes seem to have died down, but meteorologists warn there may be further rains of blood on the horizon. Most of the Tibetean monks are now claiming asylum, and the Home Secretary has been called in to make a decision. Meanwhile, reports say that a flaming Bentley, a supersonic motor-scooter, four motorbikes and four children on bicycles are heading for the American army base, just outside the town. On the phone, with a very strong opinion on all this, we have Mr Tyler of the residents' association...

II. Let Me Work On It

Anathema:
Stop right there!
I need to know right now,
Before we go any further,
Can we stop this?
In any way whatever?
Can we cease it?
Before those Four release it?
Now that we made it through the hole in the fence,
But what can we do in the way of defence?
I need to know right now,
Before we go any further,
Can we stop this,
In any way whatever?
Can we cease it?
Before those Four release it?
Can you interrupt the signal now that we're in the base?
Because if you can't, it's goodbye human race!
I need to know right now,
Before we go any further,
Can we stop this,
In any way whatever?

Newt:
Let me work on it, just a second.
Let me work on it.
Let me work on it, I might have an answer by the morning.

Let me work on it, just a second.
Let me work on it.
Let me work on it, I might have an answer by the morning

Let me work on it, just a second.
Let me work on it.
Let me work on it, I might have an answer by the morning.

Anathema:
We need to know right now!
Can we stop this?
In any way whatever?
Can we cease it?
Before those Four release it?
Can you interrupt the signal now that we're in the base?
Because if you can't, it's goodbye human race!
I need to know right now,
Before we go any further,
Can we stop this,
In any way whatever?

(Spoken)
What's the problem?
James Bond never has this trouble.
After all, you are a computer engineer, aren't you?
Aren't you, Newt?
Yes or no?

Newt:
Let me work on it, just a second.
Let me work on it.
Let me work on it, I might have an answer by the morning.

Let me work on it, just a second.
Let me work on it.
Let me work on it, I might have an answer by the morning.

III. The Day After The End Of Time

Newt:
I didn't know what to do,
I was over my head.
I still had my pin,
But I thought I was dead.
I saw Shadwell and Tracy, and wanted to help,
But I think we've reached the end of time,
I really think we've reached the end of time...

Newt and Anathema:
So Agnes told us that the end of time,
Was just about to arrive,
But whatever happened with that kid and his friends,
It looks like we're all going to survive.
We won't take a look at Agnes' second book,
Our new lives will not involve that sequel hook.
'Cos we helped postpone the end of time,
And what happens next's new-oo-oo,
We helped postpone the end of time,
So I can spend my time with you.

Crowley:
It was long ago and it was far away,
It all started when you gave that sword away...
