lyrics

it’s 1996, so i haven’t really slept
and i’m late to work again
but the lunchbreak’s just three hours away

mine’s a half in the Colepitz with a sandwich
we will snipe then emerge into the sunlight
on Kilburn High Road

Mr Joe smells the real ale on my breath
stores it up and three days later
passes comment underneath his breath

it’s my turn as the punchbag on the front desk
improvising advice later contested
in Willesden County Court

we’ve got hair
we’ve got flares we’ve got flair
and our jackets come from Rokit
and our dance moves come from god knows where

Red Stripe swigged from a tinnie at a clubnight
we will sway then disperse into the twilight

it’s Kilburn High Road

there’s still time to be yourself
still time to let yourself go
