Do you remember the riots in Gothenburg
In the summer of two thousand and one
Boy, we sure had fun
I held your hand so proud
It was shaking from what I learned was doubt
In the warm summer sun

And I saw my face on a screen
They filmed us from a helicopter
The most frightened face I've seen
Red in the face like a lobster

Do you remember the riots in Gothenburg
In the summer of two thousand and one
Boy, we sure had fun

Down the avenue
The black black crew
Were throwing rocks at the cops stand
Everything stopped
They started a bonfire
A couple of days prior
I wanted to do that too
Burn down the avenue

And I saw my face on a screen
They filmed us from a helicopter
The most frightened face I've seen
Red in the face like a lobster

And your hands slipped out of mine
I couldn't see no love in your eye
And I knew what I had to do
Burn the avenue

And I'm not a political fighter
And I don't even have a cigarette lighter
But I wanna see that fire
I just wanna see that fire
I just wanted to see that fire
Burn down the avenue

Do you remember the riots in Gothenburg
In the summer of two thousand and one
Boy, we sure had fun
