Loud & Clear 02:53
Dead end kids doing what we enjoy Up on stage we’re gonna make our noise Sing it loud, sing it fast Sing it for the kids of the working class Working class kids sing loud and clear Let the nation know we’re here Working class kids sing loud and clear Shout out the truth no one wants to hear Right wing kids red star boys Think for yourself, don’t be fooled by their ploys Always think again before you sign your name Never vote a leader cos they’re all the same Working class kids sing loud and clear Let the nation know we’re here Working class kids sing loud and clear Shout out the truth no one wants to hear Dead end kids doing what we enjoy Up on stage we’re gonna make our noise Sing it loud, sing it fast Sing it for the kids of the working class Working class kids sing loud and clear Let the nation know we’re here Working class kids sing loud and clear Shout out the truth no one wants to hear

You’ve gone off to play an action man In a far off land Fighting for a cause that you don’t understand We’ve been told you’re one of the elite Been told you’re one of the best But shootig boys who ain’t got a clue You know that ain’t no test Rogue Trooper Think that you’re so strong Rogue Trooper But you know you’ve got it wrong SLR at your side rapid fire at the rebel line Professional soldier are you fuck, All you’re after is another buck Now the resistance has died away, the last of the gunfire stopped There’s no white flag for their surrender You’ve gone and shot the lot Rogue Trooper Think that you’re so strong Rogue Trooper But you know you’ve got it wrong Rogue Trooper Think that you’re so strong Rogue Trooper But you know you’ve got it wrong

Who’s got the power in our city? Who’s got control over what we do? Who are the ones that are telling you, who owns the land? You know who… University City, university town Hey you, don’t do that Keep the noise down University City, university town Hey you, don’t do that Keep the noise down Who’s got the right to stop our concerts? Who’s got the right to close our clubs? They are the ones who want to study all night They are the ones who want peace and quiet University City, university town Hey you, can’t do that Keep the noise down University City, university town Hey you, can’t do that Keep the noise down Who’s got the brains to go the college? Who’s got the money to be a grad? Who wants to be one anyway? Who’s gotta do what daddy says? University City, university town Hey you, don’t do that Keep the noise down University City, university town Hey you, don’t do that Keep the noise down

In My Time 03:25
Listened what you had to say About the good old days When you were free to walk in peace Not afraid of who you meet Different now or so you say But I know fore myself That it’s always been this way Lived in peace but in darkness too Waiting for the blackout to catch you It weren’t like that in your time No violence in the street Two world wars and Vietnam But you still say you lived peace Hear the planes fly up above As the flames of the past burn on The echoes of those days have worn out It’s the age where they carry on Still call them the good old days When everything was right And every young man in this land of ours Had to leave our shores to fight It weren’t like that in your time No violence in the street Two world wars and Vietnam But you still say you lived peace Hear the cry from the battlefields Just like on the streets today Then they fighting for the land And now just to pass the day Hear you say its not the same It’s not like what it was Sorry I don’t agree with you Take a look outside you door… It weren’t like that in your time No violence in the street Two world wars and Vietnam But you still say you lived peace

Run and Hide 03:12
Rows and rows of terraced houses standing empty just crumbling away Families moved out years ago to the high rise across the way Happy in that home of theirs They didn’t wanna go The Council said it’s a better life And they didn’t have a chance – to say no The saga of working life goes on and the children run and hide When the lift to life breaks down you’re gonna have to stay inside Open space where rumble now lies A wasteland where the old town died Ready for an office block or carpark So that the rates can rise No one thinks of the homeless thousands Or the old folk on the fourteenth floor Who never show their faces Co they’re to scared –to answer the door The saga of working life goes on and the children run and hide When the lift to life breaks down you’re gonna have to stay inside Take a train to London Town Take a look out the window There’s proof all around Boarded up windows and closed down shops There not even fit to live in as squats People are forced to live like this It’s either that or a cardboard box Cos life depends on who you know And just how much Money – you have got! The saga of working life goes on and the children run and hide When the lift to life breaks down you’re gonna have to stay inside

We’ve got no one to speak for us No one here that we can trust There’s so many that just tell lies ‘Cos everyone knows our tongues are tied Hear you in the streets – the voice of the young Stand together and fight as one Hear you in the streets – the voice of the young Stand together and fight as one We don’t want you – left or right We want someone to win our fight We want someone with proof not paper We don’t want no lying traitors Has anyone out there still got guts Ain’t no one got no faith in us Give us a chance and let us dance We’re here to stay and we won’t go away. Hear you in the streets – the voice of the young Stand together and fight as one Hear you in the streets – the voice of the young Stand together and fight as one There’s so many people who try to put us down They hate to see us walk around the town Question us about the riots But we’re fed up of being quiet We’ve kept it shut for far too long So now we’re gonna explode the bomb. Hear you in the streets – the voice of the young Stand together and fight as one Hear you in the streets – the voice of the young Stand together and fight as one

Going to work it ain’t much fun I wanna come before I’ve begun Sitting there bored I always moan Thinking to myself why can’t I go home Get up every morning as early as I can Leg it out the house to catch the van Sitting half asleep in the back seat Knowing that the weekend won’t be long Cos it’s better than joining the queue Cos it’s better than being like you One thing I don’t wanna do Is end up nothing like you… Every week is the same old game Get up got to work come home again Get up got to work come home again Oh what shitty life I lead… Gotta get out of this routine A bit of excitement is what I need Gotta get out of this routine And sort out something unforeseen Cos it’s better than joining the queue Cos it’s better than being like you One thing I don’t wanna do Is end up nothing like you… Going to work it ain’t much fun I wanna come before I’ve begun Sitting there bored I always moan Thinking to myself why can’t I go home Get up every morning as early as I can Leg it out the house to catch the van Sitting half asleep in the back seat Knowing that the weekend won’t be long Cos it’s better than joining the queue Cos it’s better than being like you One thing I don’t wanna do Is end up nothing like you…

Give Up Boys 02:19
We’ll never give in to no one Cos we’re having a laugh and a bit of fun An’ even if you say we’re crap We won’t give up just like that People say that we can’t play But we don’t care –what they sa-y They all say we just make a noise “why don’t you just give up boys?” You all think your bands are best There ain’t no chance for the rest But nothing that you’ll ever say Is gonna ever make us go away People say that we can’t play But we don’t care –what they sa-y They all say we just make a noise “why don’t you just give up boys?” Don’t you ever put us down (Cos) we can take the knocks – we ain’t no clowns What you write ain’t worth the space So shut your mouth, it’s not too late. People say that we can’t play But we don’t care –what they sa-y They all say we just make a noise “why don’t you just give up boys?”

They’re not true not mates cos they’re no fun When you’re in trouble they’re the first to run They think they’re smart but they’re not with us ‘Cos we’re the people with a bit of suss! Stick – Stick – Stick - Stick Together Let’s have a laugh stay young forever! Stick – Stick – Stick - Stick Together Let’s have a laugh stay young forever! Let’s run wild stay out all night Let’s have some fun, we’ll be alright We’re here to stay, we won’t go away Face reality – it’s the only way! Stick – Stick – Stick - Stick Together Let’s have a laugh stay young forever! Stick – Stick – Stick - Stick Together Let’s have a laugh stay young forever! We get about we sing and shout An’ we don’t care if we get left out As long as there’s all smiling faces An’ all the aggression is in the right places! Stick – Stick – Stick - Stick Together Let’s have a laugh stay young forever! Stick – Stick – Stick - Stick Together Let’s have a laugh stay young forever!
