Mitch Benn And The Distractions - The Ambassador's A Bit Tied Up Right Now lyrics

The Ambassador regrets that he
Will be unable to meet you personally
Unavoidably he finds himself detained
And somewhat silenced, and restrained...

The Ambassador sends his sincere regrets
And he hopes you won't be cross with him just yet (maybe later)
And he's sorry that he can't explain quite how
But the Ambassador's a bit tied up right now.

The Ambassador hopes that you
Will understand his chains of office won't undo
And assures you with apologies profound
You're not the only ones who've been kept hanging round

And it wasn't his intention to annoy
And he's sorry he's been such a naughty boy
Pay no attention if you hear a muffled "ow!"
The Ambassador's a bit tied up right now.
