"Clockwork Skinhead" as written by and Hitchcock/hodges/jacobs/mccourt/pear....
Wearing braces, the red, white, and blue
Doing what he thinks he ought to do
Used to be a punk and a mod too
Or is it just a phase he's going through

He's a Clockwork skinhead
Just a clockwork skinhead
Clockwork skinhead - got no choice
He's a Clockwork skinhead
Just a clockwork skinhead
Clockwork skinhead - One of the boys

Take him to the pub, buy him a beer
Tell him what he wants to hear
Wind him up like clockwork toy
Wants to be a man but he's just a boy


Believes everything the papers say
What's he gonna be today
What is it hip to be
Will he be himself or will he copy me?

    General CommentYeah the same topic as Infa riot - 5 minute fashion
    "used to be a punk and a mod too" - completely identical as you can hear in that song.
    skinhead was trendy those day

    Otherwise does anybody know which track is older ? This must be that.
