Robinson, Tom - Living In A Boom Time Lyrics




Whatever happened to the old brigade
The hopes we had and the plans we made
Days and nights we spent together
Now those days are gone forever

Martin studied and he made the grade
Emigrated to the USA
Now he's working for Edison Con
On a research project, making a bomb

Ben's been selling retirement homes
Pinstripe whistle and a cellnet phone
Ripping off pensioners don't look good
If he didn't do it some other guy would

Pad those shoulders, swing those hips
Don't get angry, read my lips, we've all got

New opportunities, knock-knock-knocking in a boom time
New opportunities, let's forget about the gloom time, these are your
New opportunities, knock-knock-knocking in a boom time
New opportunities, let's forget about the doom time, soon time

Margo's happy with her cats and dogs
Given up people as a total loss
Says dumb animals got no choice
Firebombs laboratories to give 'em a voice

Dave just privatized his council flat
Home owner, drop of a hat
Interest went up, he couldn't pay
Big corporation gonna take it away

Shrug those shoulders, let's get hip
Don't get angry, read my lips, we've all got

New opportunities, knock-knock-knocking in a boom time
New opportunities, let's forget about the gloom time, these are your
New opportunities, knock-knock-knocking in a boom time
New opportunities, let's forget about the doom time, soon time

Jamie's working out at the gym
No more dangerous living for him
Given up alcohol and ecstasy
Ever since he diagnosed HIV

No more parties, no more trips
Wise up suckers, read my lips, these are your

New opportunities, knock-knock-knocking in a boom time
New opportunities, let's forget about the gloom time, these are your
New opportunities, knock-knock-knocking in a boom time
New opportunities, let's forget about the doom time, soon time
