lyrics

Way back in the 1980s all seemed cut and dried
You did your job, you earnt a wage, you drove a Renault 5
Then came techno, acid house, and people lost respect
They sat around in communes smoking funny cigarettes.

Now there lies the problem you see
You know in your heart of hearts your folks were dropping E’s
They spent their time at Future dancing to repetitive beats

We are the people our parents warned us about.

“You should get out and have some fun” that’s what my dad will say
Oh father, please, I’m studying, why don’t you go away?
“Ah when I was your age I had better things to do”
I’m surprised you can remember - all the stuff you snow-ploughed through

We sit around the fire and the music pumps out loud
Oh mother, please, just turn it down, the neighbours will be round.
It’s such an awful racket - they can’t sing and you can’t hear the words.

We are the people our parents warned us about.

Dissidents, deviants, mavericks and cranks
Drop-outs, weirdy rebels, recalcitrants and punks
That’s what my thesaurus says and I’ve never known it to be wrong

We are the people our parents warned us about.

Spray Lancashire, UK

Ric and Jen were members of 21st century pop terrorists The Cuban Boys, who topped John Peel's Festive 50 and the UK singles charts.

In 2016 they released their first full length studio album in 10 years - 'Enforced Fun'.
