"The 80's"

I smoked Consulates and Park Drive, drank Nookie Brown 
Learned how to skive 
Polo mints to hide my breath from my mum 
Did a little weed cuz it felt like fun 
Did a little bit of speed if my friend had some 
Nicked Volkswagen badges I´m a Beastie Boys son 
Me so horny, me so young and I still get my washing done 
Auntie Joan died of cancer God didn´t have an answer 
Rhythm was a dancer 
Any room for a chancer? That´s me in the corner, thanks sir! 
I wore astute track suits, British Nike shoes, 
Kangol hat like LL Cool´s 
Before I was ´avin it, ´avin it large 
They nicked the BMX from out my garage 
Knew it was Theo from off the estate cuz every time he´d see me,
he´d smile like we were mates 
From then on in I´d have to walk to me Nan´s 
And I´d dream my dreams through a sea of prams 
Like a hooligan on the football stands 
And I´d throw the v´s to Leeds and West Ham 
Then I ran, I ran so far away down Scotia Road to a taxi bay 
Then I ran again cuz I couldn´t pay, 
a Muslim didn´t get his fare that day 
I apologise today 

Things are better when they start 
That´s how the 80s broke my heart 

And who are you calling poof? You like Wham, man, 
I hate that stuff 
And then my grandad died and left a hole in the family 
and lots of women had to nanny me 
School was a laugh, they didn´t have ADD, 
thick was the term they used for me 
(over and over) 
(over and over) 

Take my breath away take my breath away 
Bidly bidly bidly bom 
Pass it on the left hand side, right turn, Clive 

That girl in the fourth year, 
got pregnant and she was raised Catholic, brilliant! 
I cried, she cried, we cried, our youth died 
Drank cider in the cemetery 
The year above us had discovered E and I said it weren´t for me 
?12.50? I could rob me mum´s purse and buy one up Torquay 
Met a girl on Monday, drank fizzy pop on Tuesday 
Fingered her on Wednesday and on Thursday and Friday and on Saturday 
Dumped by Sunday 

Things are better when they start 
That´s how the 80s broke my heart 
The wonder years, I´ve played my part 
That´s how the 80s broke my heart 

Like I said, I lost my virginity to a girl called Anne-Marie, 
well she said she fancied me 
And then she said "fuck me" and I thought ´fuck me, 
I´m all talk and it´ll be over too quickly´ 
And it was but I couldn´t care less, 
I´d seen a girl´s bra and made a mess on her dress, oh yes! 
You´re now rocking with the best, 
second person in my year that had seen a breast 
I´m in my 30s now and I´m still impressed 
Where are the Falklands mum? And what have they done? 
Where do girls come from? Where do girls come from? 
Where do girls come from? 

It´s the 80s, what you looking at, ya mong? 
So young, so long, so young, so long 
Too short, so long 
What you looking at ya mong? 
Too short, so long, too short, so long 
So long.
