Cock Sparrer - Runnin' Riot Lyrics




Things you say and things you do sure worry me
When we're out on the street making money for you and your society
It seems to me the time is right
For another generation and another street fight
Got no future, but I sure got a right
Sure I got a right to live

Cos I can't stand the peace and quiet
And all I want is have a runnin' riot
I can't stand the peace and quiet
And all I want is have a runnin'... riot!

So don't you try to understand the way we feel
Flash limousines and mortgages ain't no big deal
I've got no friends who want to be
Living like you when they're thirty three
Getting old sure bothers me
It bothers me to death

Cos I can't stand the peace and quiet
And all I want is have a runnin' riot
Now I can't stand the peace and quiet
And all I want is have a runnin'... riot!

Cos I can't stand the peace and quiet
And all I want is have a runnin' riot
Now I can't stand the peace and quiet
And all I want is have a runnin'... riot!

    Things you say, Things you do sure worry me,
    When were out on the street making money for you in your society.
    It seems to me the time is right,
    for another generation and another street fight.
    Got no future, sure got a right, i got a right to live.
    I can't stand the peace and quiet. All I want is a running a riot.
    I can't stand the peace and quiet, Because all i want is a running... RIOT!
    Don't you try to understand the way we feel.
    Lush Limousines and mortgages ain't no big deal.
    I've got no friends who want to be, living like you when there 33.
    Getting old sure bothers me, bothers me to death.
    Cause I can't stand the peace and quiet.
    All I want is a running a riot.
    Cause I can't stand the peace and quiet.
    All I want is a running ... RIOT!
    Cause I can't stand the peace and quiet.
    All I want is a running riot.
    I want to riot!
    I can't stand the peace and quiet,
    All I want is a running... RIOT! I just wanna RIOT!
