Housemartins, The - We're Not Going Back Lyrics




Do you remember the good old days?
An empty stomach and a tear-stained face
Do you remember how it used to be?
The walking dead in the factory
I won't talk because
It's not as it was
You don't want the sack
Then don't doff your cap

(We are not going back) don't back pedal down a broken track
(We are not going back) I'm all right jack is an easy trap
(We are not going back) no more need for wearing all black
(We are not going back) I'm all right jack is an easy trap

Do you remember the daily pain
Of walking around with a ball and chain?
Do you recall when it was hard buy fair?
You got your share on a line of a prayer

Please put in my box
Some money for socks
Don't turn back the clocks
It's not as it was

(We are not going back) don't back pedal down a broken track
(We are not going back) I'm all right jack is an easy trap
(We are not going back) no more need for wearing all black
(We are not going back) I'm all right jack is an easy trap
