My Generation [I said goodbye]

Working man down the club putting the world to rights
A super cockle sub on Tamla Motown nights
Walk the dog around the block put the kids to bed
You’re losing track of time you’re going to fall asleep in the shed

I said goodbye to my generation
I never heard from them again
Not me

Kissing in Jakes Alley throwing arrows into the sky
They all fall down and they land in your eye
Your dinners in the bin its nearly half past there
Not seen you around for a while no you wont remember me

I said goodbye to my generation
I never heard from them again

The new estate is falling down
They don’t build them like they used top
The old boy network didn’t really suit you
Those teenage diaries are better left unread
Miscarriages of justice fester in the head

I said goodbye to my generation
I never heard from them again
Spent all my life running away from…

Easter parade in the village hall the minister for tea
Con men in the pulpit and gangsters on TV
Take a look if you want to take a picture take a holiday
Let me back at the drop of a hat its as if I never went away

I said goodbye to my generation
I never heard from them again
I said goodbye
