lyrics

Here’s the music that you can’t stop playing
Here’s the movie with the actor saying
‘You won’t see the likes of us again’
Long-haired lovers you cannot abide
The one-hit-wonder’s heading fora nosedive
Drowning his sorrows in Dubonnet

It’s not what it was like in the 70s
And we should be thankful for this small mercy
The decade took Hendrix, Bolan and Presley
(But still) It’s not what it was like in the 70s

See the hippy, born 1950
She needs a job, her eyes are looking shifty
She won’t take the brown acid again
Polyester suits you will survive
These happy days we tend to romanticise
Maybe we’ll just call it a day

It’s not what it was like in the 70s
And we should be thankful for this small mercy
The decade took Hendrix, Bolan and Presley
(But still) It’s not what it was like in the 70s
