Sleaford Mods - B.H.S. Lyrics




It's at night when they come
When I'm alone, and not with anyone
Through the shouts and music
Of the crowd down the road boozing
Near the free car park
The bins and the alleyway, of the Chinese restaurant
Number 3 for 2, and number 4 for 1

We're going down like BHS
While the abled bodied vultures monitor and pick at us
We're going down and it's no stress
I lay and hope for the knuckle dragging exodus
We're going down like BHS
While the abled bodied vultures monitor and pick at us
We're going down and it's no stress
We're going down like BHS

I think about the heat
As it lowers it's self on me
Past the closing hour
When the light in my phone starts to lose power
Through the karaoke it screams it's name
You can't blame the betrayed
In the snakes and ladders
We are the Baldricks son, and Blackadders

We're going down like BHS
While the abled bodied vultures monitor and pick at us
We're going down and it's no stress
I lay and hope for the knuckle dragging exodus
We're going down like BHS
While the abled bodied vultures monitor and pick at us
We're going down and it's no stress
We're going down like BHS

(Ooh) Laying on a boat well what do you do
(But ooh) Laying on a boat mate look at you
(Ooh) Laying on a boat well what do you do
(But ooh) Laying on a boat mate look at you (Look at you!)

We're going down like BHS
While the abled bodied vultures monitor and pick at us
We're going down and it's no stress
I lay and hope for the knuckle dragging exodus
We're going down like BHS
While the abled bodied vultures monitor and pick at us
We're going down and it's no stress
We're going down like BHS

    Sounds like Hiroshima Mon Amour by Ultravox, with that drumbeat at the start.

    British Home Stores (BHS) was a chain of department stores in the UK controlled by Sir Philip Green, the chairman of Arcadia Group, which also owns Topshop, among others. The chain was shuttered in summer 2016, and 11,000 jobs were lost, as well as £571 million from the pension fund, leaving 22,000 former employees without retirement income.

  9. Rupert Hay

    In the Bath, fat line of Mandy, preparing myself for tonight Sleaford Mods Hammersmith Apollo it’s gonna go off,

  10. Silas Russell

    Some of the best music in the 2010s (gorillaz did produce plastic beach so that would be another gem in the 2010s) But the Sleaford Mods are legendary. They have modernized punk rock to make it "adaptable" to music today. Electronica and Punk rock is a very strange but one of the best music. It definitely changes my "all modern music is trashy" mindset and honestly shows something good can come out of these years still. My dad showed me this band starting with B.H.S. Some of my favorites are B.H.S, Tied Up In Nottz, Discourse, and Kebab Spider (I know those are the more "popular" songs by them. I'm still new to this band) This is my second favorite band now (under Gorillaz) I have no idea how these guys are still in between Underground and Mainstream. Hope these legends the best luck and hopefully they will get more attention soon

  56. Andrew McKeague

    I like his punkish vocals and admittedly they've got a groove but a lot of their songs sound the same which is not a bad thing and I like his honest lyrics but I thought their album was quite monotonous. Probably best listened in playlist shuffle.

    Revealing Storm

    I would say it's a bad thing. They have a bland and monotonous sound.

  57. Neil Wilson
