Reef - Yer Old Lyrics



Hide away boys, you're no longer in favour,
You're yesterday's news and no longer the flavour.
You washing my mouth, now you shining my shoes,
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Don't need me the paper, to read me the news,
Oh no!

Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old.

Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old.

Speak ill of my boys and I'll take you to pieces,
So come face to face if you think I don't mean it.
You're swanning about like you're nobody's fool,
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
You've shown me the place but I don't want to go,
Oh no!

Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old.

Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old.
Ah, yeah.

So, what you gonna do?
I wish you would come and tell me.
So what you gonna do?
You the problem, now you solve it.
So what you gonna do?
I'm the judge and your opinion.
So what you gonna do?

Hide away boys, you're no longer in favour,
You're yesterday's news and no longer the flavour, yeah.

Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old.
Yeah!

Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old.
Live with me!

Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old, yeah.

Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old,
Yer old.

Now hear me,
It were the,
Easiest,
Day of my life.

Now hear me,
It were the,
Easiest,
Day of my, life.

  14. Salamanda687

    Brilliant song. If you don't like it get your ears syringed and your soul cleansed.

    I have just played their album 'Glow' and I chuckled to myself as it brought back memories.
    Back in the late 1990s the DJ used to play this at the 'Meltdown' venue at the Waterfront in Norwich (owned by the University of East Anglia). My mates used to point at me during the chorus for simply being...the oldest in the group. The next oldest was only 4 weeks younger!

    Anyhow...listening to the first few lines 21 years on is now quite apt: 'Hide away boys you're no longer in favour, you're yesterday's news and no longer the flavour. :-/ I'm 41 now.

    TheYouthOfYesterday

    My friends and I used to drive up to Meltdown from Warwickshire. Sleep in the car (3 of us in a metro) and then head home the next day. First time I ever had red bull and vodka was there. Good times

  16. Krisztián Tischner

    Thank You for this song! I love it. And i love Reef. Chris from Hungary, Budapest. :)

  19. Online Radio School

    When this came out , I wasn't. Now I am! Sips his cider!

  20. Ramsey Cartoons

    Doing a drunken nostalgia drive.
    Used to do this in a covers band in my 20's.
    Nearly 50 now. Blimey. Where did those seasons go?
    Obviously I was never as good as Gary Cherone.
    But then, he never gave Reef as good a performance as he did on "Cupid's Dead" for The Blue Oyster Cunt Band.
    (Irony alert. I know full well that Gary Cherone was actually the singer for AC/DC from 1975 to 1802, Ok?)

  21. Wisanlaya B

    you know kenwyn is my number one guitar hero. I don't even care the rest even slash.
