Child of the 80s

We came through some crazy times
When I was a kid
Privatisation
To the highest bid

The music was awesome
Pet Shop Boys and more
Who can forget Sex Crime
1984

I’m a child of the 80s
Salt of the earth
I’m a child of the 80s
You’d better prove your worth

Margaret Thatcher stole our milk
And we were forced to pay
The biggest playground insult
Was that you were gay

I’m a child of the 80s
Salt of the earth
I’m a child of the 80s
You’d better prove your worth

That kid from the noughties
Thinks that I’m a bore
But I’m a child of the 80s
And, honey, watch me soar

VHS
Magnetic tape
Duran Duran
Towel cape

Back to the Future
Shoulder pads
Television
Cigarette ads

Eddie the Eagle
Princess Di
Viz comics
Satellite

Doctor Who
(The first time round)
The 80s
They were pretty sound

I’m a child of the 80s
Salt of the earth
I’m a child of the 80s
You’d better prove your worth

That kid from the noughties
Thinks that I’m a bore
But I’m a child of the 80s
And, honey, watch me soar
