TWO SONGS, ONE TOPPING BAND.

to anyone living in thatchers britain in the 80’s, this was a perfect encapsulation of the times….

This town (town) is coming like a ghost town
All the clubs have been closed down
This place (town) is coming like a ghost town
Bands won’t play no more
Too much fighting on the dance floor

(A-la-la …)

Do you remember the good old days before the ghost town?
We danced and sang as the music played in any boomtown

This town (town) is coming like a ghost town
Why must the youth fight against themselves?
Government leaving the youth on the shelf
This place (town) is coming like a ghost town
No job to be found in this country
Can’t go on no more
The people getting angry

(A-la-la …)

This town is coming like a ghost town
This town is coming like a ghost town
This town is coming like a ghost town
This town is coming like a ghost town

AND ON THE LIGHTER SIDE

Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think
Enjoy yourself, while you’re still in the pink
The years go by, as quickly as you wink
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, It’s later than you think

Hello, I’m Terry,And I’m going to enjoy myself first
It’s good to be wise when you’re young
‘Cos you can only be young but the once
Enjoy yourself and have lots of fun
So glad and live life longer than you’ve ever done

Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think
Enjoy yourself, while you’re still in the pink
The years go by, as quickly as you wink
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, It’s later than you think

Never right, yes I know
Get wisdom, knowledge and understanding
These three, were given free by the maker
Go to school, learn the rules, don’t be no faker
It’s not wise for you to be a foot stool

Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think
Enjoy yourself, while you’re still in the pink
The years go by, as quickly as you wink
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, It’s later than you think

Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think
Enjoy yourself, while you’re still in the pink
The years go by, as quickly as you wink
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, It’s later than you think

ghost town, and enjoy yourself (it’s later than you think) by the specials.
but you knew that of course.

  1. Wow, a very nice blast from the past Cappy!!! Well, it is easy to forget why Blair got elected…at the time it seemed so exciting and like a good change would occur to get rid of that ol creep Thatcher…but Blair has disappointed too huh?

    I LOVE Buster keaton. I am really enjoying your list on the side, I find all the info super fascinating, love it. Hope you like it and keep doing it. I had heard some of this stuff about fruit flies, that they are one of the most incredible animals to study. For one thing they teach and change behaviour within generations. Kewl.
