    "Two lovers kissing amongst the scream of midnight, two lovers missing the tranquillity of solitude" I really love that line. There are far too few songs that go into the banal side of relationships.

    Thank you Paul for sharing this with us all.

    This Song is a total rip off of So Sad About us by The Who! The Who gave the jam a career, All the jam ever did was copy The Who and try to be like the Who.

    "Two lover's missing the tranquility of solitude"

    Perfect social commentary for the summer of '81 in Britain if you were there.Lyrically,Paul Weller has never bettered this.Just magnificent.

    A police car and a screamin siren
    Pneumatic drill and ripped-up concrete
    A baby wailing, a stray dog howling
    The screech of brakes and lamplight blinking

    That's entertainment
    That's entertainment

    A smash of glass and the rumble of boots
    An electric train and a ripped-up phone booth
    Paint-splattered walls and the cry of a tomcat
    Lights going out and a kick in the balls

    I say that's entertainment
    That's entertainment
    La la la la la, ah
    La la la la la, ah

    Days of speed and slow-time Monday's
    Pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday
    Watching the news and not eating your tea
    A freezing cold flat with damp on the walls

    I say that's entertainment
    That's entertainment
    La la la la la
    La la la la la

    Waking up at 6 A.M. on a cool warm morning
    Opening the windows and breathing in petrol
    An amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard
    Watching the telly and thinking 'bout your holidays

    That's entertainment
    That's entertainment
    La la la la la, ah
    La la la la la, ah
    La la la la la, ah
    La la la la la

    Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes
    Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume
    A hot summers day and sticky black Tarmac
    Feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away

    That's entertainment
    That's entertainment

    2 lovers kissing masks a scream of midnight
    2 lovers missing the tranquility of solitude
    Getting a cab and travelling on buses
    Reading the graffiti about slashed-seat affairs

    I say that's entertainment
    That's entertainment
    La la la la la, ah
    La la la la la, ah
    La la la la la, ah
    La la la la la
    La la la la la, ah
    La la la la la, ah
    La la la la la, ah
    La la la la la
    La la la la la, ah
    La la la la la, ah
    La la la la la, ah

    This song sums up a 1970s childhood. And probably those who grew up in the generations before. It's ghostly now...somehow haunting.

    Paul Weller for me is one of the best lyricist of all time and I am thankful for the Jam for their contribution in Punk music. But isn't ironic that his lyrically best written song he ever made was after a drunken pub visit. I praise this pub as a holy place supporting one of the most inspirational songs for the British society.

    Not only did they make some seriously talented music, they also looked the part, both of which are attributes which seem to have sadly evaporated. I was only about four when this came out but I remember my dad playing the vinyl album on the big old radiogram. The Jam are real entertainment........
