Who Didn’t Want To Be In A Punk Rock Band?

(Riff Regan)

Who didn’t want to be in a punk rock band?
Who didn’t want to live in punk rock land?
Who didn’t want to be in a punk rock band?
Back then…

I had a mate, hated his lot
Let’s quit dumb town, give our best shot
We formed a band, plugged in
Next thing you know, we’re making this din
Next thing you know, we’re a firing pin

We played in Liverpool, Brighton too
Played any time anywhere, paid our dues
We’d turn up, walk out and play
Next thing we know they want us to stay
Next thing we know we’re on our way

Who didn’t want to be in a punk rock band?
Who didn’t want to live in punk rock land?
Who didn’t want to be in a punk rock band?
Back then…

We saw all the cities in transit vans
Met all the pretties who said they’re fans
Wrote a few songs along the way
Next thing we know we wanted to stay
Next thing we know it’s NME day

Who didn’t want to be in a punk rock band?
Who didn’t want to live in punk rock land?
Who didn’t want to be in a punk rock band?
Back then…

And you try to tell me
That those weren’t the best days
I can think of none better
Each day red letter
And you try to tell me
I was wasting my time
Well you did your thing
And I did mine

I had a mate, hated his lot
Let’s quit dumb town, give our best shot
We formed a band, plugged in
Next thing you know, we’re making this din
Next thing you know, we’re a firing pin

Who didn’t want to be in a punk rock band?
Who didn’t want to live in punk rock land?
Who didn’t want to be in a punk rock band?
Back then…
