Here are the lyrics in full: (Click Read More)

 

Timmy Mallet, Wacaday, Colin from Eastenders gay,
Shake n’ Vac Crackerjack, who did shoot JR?
Pac-Man, He-Man, Tape cassette, Walkman,
Bukcaroo, Emu, Michael Knight’s car,

Goonies, Krankies, filofax and yuppies,
Lockerbie, You and Me, John Lennon shot dead,
Mister Men, Mr Ben, Angie Watts, Dirty Den,
Swap Shop, Tiswas, Charles and Di getting wed

We didn’t own an iPad, never heard of texting only teletexting,
We never owned an iPad, never used the sat nav, only old AA maps

Space Raiders, Darth Vaders, R White’s secret lemonaders,
Moon boots, shell suits, Michael Jackson’s black,
Willy Wonka, what a plonker, playing with your favourite Tonka,
Mrs Mangle, eating spangles, Zammo high on smack

Mr T, ET, wearing pants for PE,
Hungry Hippos, Sam Fox, top ten, Fraggle rock,
Speak and spell, Chas n’ Dave, Acid house and all the raves
Gremilins were being mean, n-n-n-n-nineteen

We didn’t own an iPad, never heard of texting only teletexting,
We never owned an iPad, never used the sat nav, only old AA maps.

Shoulder pads, crazy dads, being kicked in the nads,
Jelly shoes, Naked Gun, Dusty Bin in 3-2-1,
BMX, Mag Wheels, Sonny in his Espadrilles,
Roland Rat, Top Cat, Michael Fish you lying t**t

Brookside, Connect Four, Big Dady, Falklands War,
VHS, big hair, Cheryl Baker’s underwear,
Bull’s Eye, Mr Claypole, devestation in Chernobyl,
Soda Stream, Elvis dead, Lionel Richie’s model head

We didn’t own an iPad, never heard of texting only teletexting,
We never owned an iPad, never used the sat nav, only old AA maps

Rubic’s Cubes all the rage, Tommy Cooper dies on stage,
Space dust, Baldrick, Maradonna was a pr**k,
Ronald Regan, Iron Lady, Blind Date and a test tube baby,
Steve Davis, different class, Anneka Rice’s ass
Reading Viz, Smash Hits, Berlin Wall smashed to bits
Freddie Kruger I’m afraid, rocking out to Live Aid

We didn’t own an iPad, never heard of texting only teletexting,
We never owned an iPad, never used the sat nav, only old AA maps.

Chopper, Grifter, Diff’rent Strokes, Shep the dog, John Noaks,
Eric Morecambe, Ernie Wise, watching Eddie Eagle fly,
Metal Mickey, Meg & Mog, drink Kiora with my dog,
Button Moon, Love Boat, half penny, pound note

Zippy, George, Frankie Says, swimming in my PJs
Stir Crazy, Fame and Bod, Can I have a P please Bob,
Monkey Magic, Playaway, Shops all closed on Sunday,
Commodore 64, I can’t take it anymore

We didn’t own an iPad, never heard of texting only teletexting,
We never owned an iPad, never used the sat nav, only old AA maps.

We never had a mobile, all our phones had wires and TVs were hired
We never owned a mobile, never had playstations, just imaginations

We never owned an iPad, never stabbed each other, just collected rubbers
We never owned an iPad, never wore low trousers, played in camps for hours.

And now I’m that much older, it seems a world away.
