Just like we had ffffeared, the mates we had have all disappeared
Nicky, Flip, Paul, Fat Bob and Ted, they all done a bunk & all got wed
OUT WITH THE LADS FOR A LAUGH AND A BEER, THOSE DAYS ARE NO LONGER 'ERE
WITH A LUMP IN YER THROAT & A SHIVER DOWN YER SPINE
THEY'RE THE MEMORIES OF 1979
[Chorus:]
WOOOOOOOOOOO THAT'S WHERE WE WANNA BE
1979
WOOOOOOOOOOO THAT'S WHERE WE WANNA BE
BACK IN '79
Flip a punk sssuddenly aged, he sold his leather jacket just to get engaged
Bobby was a skinhead, but Bobby's hair grew, all for a bird who made him bbblue
WE NEVER THOUGHT WE'DE SEE THE DAY, TEDDY WITH A MRS IN THE FAMILY WAY
OH WHAT WENT WRONG? THINGS WERE JUST FINE,
SO TAKE ME BACK TO 1979
[Chorus]...
[Guitar Bit]
Freddie was a free bloke fffull o' life, now Freddie is a bag o' misery with a wife
Everynight George hit the town, by 8'o clock now he's in his dressing gown
THEY AIN'T THE LADS WE KNEW BEFORE, YOU DON'T SEE THEM DOWN THE PUB NO MORE
THEY'RE DISCONTENTED MATES O' MINE WHO WANNA BE BACK IN 1979.
