    Lyrics

    Did you see the stylish kids in the riot
    Shovelled up like muck
    Set the night on fire
    Wombles bleed truncheons and shields
    You know I cherish you my love

    But there's a rumour spread nasty disease around town
    Caught around the houses with your trousers down
    A head rush in the bush
    You know I cherish you my love
    Oh how i cherish you my love

    Tell me what can you want
    When you've got it all I've seen is obscene
    Time will strip it away, a year and a day
    And Bill Bones,
    Bill Bones knows what I mean

    Yes it's eating, it's chewing me up
    It's not right for young lungs to be coughing up blood
    And it's all
    It's all in my hands
    And it's all
    It's all up the walls

    The stale chips are up and the hopes stakes are down
    Its these ignorant faces that bring this town down
    Yeah I sighed and sunken with pride
    You know passed myself down on my knees
    Yes I passed myself down on my knees

    Now tell me what can you want
    When you've got it all I've seen is obscene
    Time will strip it away, a year and a day
    And Bill Bones,
    Bill Bones knows what I mean

    There are fewer more distressing sights than that
    Of an Englishman in a baseball cap
    And we'll die in the class we were born
    That's a class of our own my love
    A class of our own my love

    Did you see the stylish kids in the riot
    Shovelled up like muck
    Set the night on fire
    Wombles bleed truncheons and shields
    You know I cherish you my love
    And I cherish you my love.
