How old are you?
Are you old enough?
Should you be in here watching that?
And how old are you?
Are you owning up?
Should you be in here with?

Twenty four hour party people plastic face 'carn't' smile the white out
With the twenty four hour party people plastic face 'carn't' smile the white out

You cannot beat `em
So why don't you join in?
You cannot beat `em
So why don't you join in with?

Twenty four hour party people plastic face 'carn't' smile the white out
With the twenty four hour party people plastic face 'carn't' smile the white out

I can see you through the door.
You been chewing bread and water.
And there's a grudge on you - you know not ought not to have.
You've been running around the racetrack
You've been running around the racetrack
Put that mother to bed to bed
Put that mother to bed

With the twenty four hour party people plastic face 'carn't' smile a white out
Cos' I have to wait for you to conduct.
Press the pause of the self destruct.
With the twenty four hour party people plastic face 'carn't' smile the white out
With the twenty four hour party people ...

Now better you're the white out ...

I need full-time
I don't need part-time
I need 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
3, 6, 5 all the time
I need 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 third time
I don't need a part-time
I need a 3, 6, 5

Oh - No days off ...

Twenty four hour party people plastic face 'carn't' smile the white out ...
I need 1, 2, 3, 4,5,6,7
3, 6, 5 all the time
I need 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 third time
I don't need a part-time
I need a 3, 6, 5

Lo que diga, eres un todoterreno. Está canción me mola mucho. Tiene un buen rollo impresionante. Abrazo.

Una canción mítica del sonido que se gestó en Manchester a mediados de los ochenta...mis gustos como puedes comprobar son muy amplios, las buenas canciones están por encima de los estilos y las etiquetas...yo soy rockero pero por encima de este se encuentra la música...

Saludos.
