Child Of The 80s

I can walk, I can talk, and dispense ridicule

And I understand irony better than you

Kitsch and chic – retro clique – I make lists in my sleep

Now my time has arrived – it’s already archived!
Sequential retrospectives in the nation’s collective

We’re blinded to the folly of our past misdirectives

Watching revivals and mid-life crises

Dodging from the fallout of nostalgic reprisals!

(woah!)

Suddenly everybody rates me, because I’m a child of the 80s!

Suddenly everybody rates me, because I’m a child of the 80s!Decadence to the sound of a Fairlight on heat

Getting loaded on spacedust and Rene Magritte

Aquaducts on the moon

Reading books just to prove

That our time had arrived – the time of our lives!It was silicon carnage once the decade had started

From the disaffected masses – and the masses were artists

Meteor arclights lit the dancefloor by starlight

Driving through the Dresden underpasses at midnight!

(woah!)Suddenly everybody rates me, because I’m a child of the 80s! x4Suddenly everybody rates me, because I’m a child of the 80s!

Suddenly everybody rates me, because I’m a child of the 80s!We’re living in the 80s! (Suddenly everybody rates me!)

We’re living in the 80s! (Because I’m a child of the 80s!)We’re living in the 80s! (Suddenly everybody rates me!)

We’re living in the 80s! (Because I’m a child of the 80s!)

We’re living in the 80s! x4Suddenly everybody rates me, because I’m a child of the 80s!

Suddenly everybody rates me, because I’m a child of the 80s!

Because I’m a child of the 80s!
