Trying to figure out just what to do
Wonder what the future holds for you
Being in a cult is part of growing up today
Drifting 'round the streets you're living your life your own way, in your...

(chorus)
Boots and braces, shaven-headed hoards
Boots and braces, fighting 'cos you're bored
Boots and braces, you'll always get the blame
Boots and braces, we'll come in just the same

Wearing your Ben Sherman in the sun
Trying to figure out just who to run
Levi jeans, Doc Marten boots, and just hear the skinhead roar - Skinhead!
No one stands against us, 'cause we've beat 'em all before

(chorus)

instrumental break

(chorus)

Try and get you banned from everywhere
'Cos you wear your boots and you cut your hair
They would rather see you in a dirty old Afghan
If you were a Left-wing hippie, you won't face no ban

(chorus)

    General Commentactually, this wasn't a white power song. this is about being looked down upon for being skinhead. i get that myself, all these years later

    General CommentThe Skinhead movement started in Great Britain in the late 1960s.

    The so-called Nigger skins have nothing to do with White skins, except that they both liked punk music.
