When I was a kid we only had 4 channels on the TV,
Yep, 1, 2, 3 and 4
And if you couldn't find a channel that was playing The Simpsons
Then you were probably calling for your friend next door
I remember the first album that I bought
I memorized the sleeve and I listened 'til I was completely over it
But it's sad I don't remember the title or the artist of the first song I ever downloaded
I remember seeing my first mobile phone,
And being completely obsessed with Snake,
School's biggest threat was calling home
Selling cans for 50p on my lunch break
I remember when LOL meant 'lots of love'
And there wasn't such a thing as a selfie
I remember the late nineties when suddenly they realized that Pot Noodles weren't healthy
Do you remember AOL?
Do you remember your dial up connection?
Remember MSN and MySpace and Trojan horses,
And your pop-up anti-virus protection?
Remember the freedom of coming home from school,
And knowing that you only had to do your homework
Able to forget some of the names that had stuck,
Some of the names that kinda, made you feel hurt
And then you sent a picture for a laugh or to that lad,
Just to get a little bit of attention
Now you've just had to explain to your mum and your dad,
Why it's on Facebook and in your Twitter mentions
Then you see those names again,
Those ones that you hate,
Just forever turning up on your timeline
In the morning you grab your phone and check as soon as you're awake,
So it's always gonna be in your eyeline
You got far less time to be a kid,
Matter of fact you probably feel like the timer has started
So, take some time to fall out with that very best friend you never thought would be the devil incarnate
Camp on the hills and forget your tent
Regret every decision that you make at fifteen
Watch the prices go up in your local shop,
I still can't believe that Freddos are more than 10p!
