Did you see the stylish kids in the riot?
Shovelled up like muck and 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 round 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? You’ve got it all
Ah the scene is obscene. Time will strip it away
a year and a day and
Bill Bones, Bill Bones knows what I mean
He knows it’s eating, it’s chewing me up, it’s not right
For young lungs to be coughing up blood
it’s all, it’s all in my hands
and its all up the walls … now the stale
Chips are up and they hope stakes are down
it’s these ignorant faces that bring this town down
I sighed and sunken with pride I passed myself
Down on my knees,
yes, I passed myself down on my knees.

Tell me what can you want? You’ve got it all
Ah the scene is obscene. Time will strip it away
a year and a day and
Bill Bones, Bill Bones knows what I mean
He knows there’s fewer more distressing sights than that of an
Englishman in a baseball cap now 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 and set the night on fire,
WOMBLES bleed, truncheons and shields, you know I cherish you my love.
