    Lyrics

    The last lot make a few mistakes
    They didn't die young, they got big waists
    We got let down at the back of Earls Court
    We swore that night, we'd never get caught
    'Cause we were smarter than they were, they were

    We started out with guitars and hate
    With our rooms in the clouds, we could hardly wait
    Our legs apart, our arms held up high
    The stage caught fire the charts blew up
    And we play worse than they do, they do

    Promises, promises
    Do you remember the promises, promises, I do?
    Do you remember the promises, promises, I do?

    We made our shirts with sprays and knives
    Then we saved up for weeks for Malcolm's strides
    Our hair was short we said what we thought
    We'd never be scared, never be bought
    Never sell out like they did, they did

    Promises, promises
    Do you remember the promises, promises, I do?
    Do you remember the promises, promises, I do?

    Soon you'll get your gear from "Marks and Sparks"
    Punks'll take over the, "Top of the Pops"
    Think you're havin' a real cool time?
    Watch out kid, you're next in line, oh yeah

    Do you remember the promises, promises, I do?
    Do you remember the promises, promises, I do?

    Where were you in '75?
    When there weren't no gigs and we were jive
    (Promises, promises, promises remember)

    No one gave a shit for our Rock 'n' Roll dream
    A&R men laughed re-release, 'The Creem'
    (Promises, promises, promises remember)
    And they thought we were stupid
    And they thought we were stupid
    And we promised, we'd get back, get back

    Do you remember the promises, promises?
    Do you remember the promises, promises?
    What I do, what I do, what I do?
    What I do, I do, I do?
    What I do, what I do?

    Promises, promises, promises remember
    Promises, promises, promises remember
    Promises, promises, promises remember
    Promises, promises, promises remember

    Promises, promises, promises remember
    Promises, promises, promises remember
    Promises, promises, promises remember
    Promises, promises, promises remember
    Promises, promises, promises remember
