"Loose Fit" as written by and Paul Anthony/day Ryder....
Has to be a loose fit
Has to be a loose fit

Go on move in it, go on do your bit
Small, big take your pick
Doesn't have to be legit

It' s gotta be a loose fit
It' s gotta be a loose fit

Don't need no skin tights in my wardrobe today
Fold them all up and put them all away
Won't be no misfit in my household today
Pick them all out and send them on their way
Do what you're doing, say what you're saying
Go where you're going, think what you're thinking
Sounds good to me

Don't know what you saw, but you know it's against the law
And you know that you want some more
I've heard it all before
Gonna buy an airforce base
Gonna wipe out your race
Get stoned in a different place
Don't you know I got better taste
Do what you're doing, say what you're saying
Go where you're going, think what you're thinking
It sound good to me

Do what you're doing, spend what you're owing
Pay what you're paying, look where you're going
Say what you're thinking, kill who you're killing
Sing if you're singing, speak if you're speaking
Sounds good to me

    General CommentProbably something to do with the baggy jeans fashion of the early nineties. The 'gonna buy an airforce base' is probably for an unofficial rave. Or perhaps, they were just off there faces on Ecstasy and Temazepam.

SHAUN WILLIAM RYDER is a FOOKIN GENIUS!!!!

    General Commentyeah i'm happy with that... i don't think you should look to deeply into mondays songs, it's just a case of translating!

    General CommentTo me it's about finding a suitable mate for the moment who's not quite your type but not far off, not a soul mate, just some one who's enjoyable to spend some time with. A "Loose Fit"

    General CommentWas the line "Gonna buy an airforce base, gonna wipe out your race" censored at the time this song came out as a single, as it was just as the first Gulf war was starting?

    General CommentDon't look too deep into this.. It's just about the "baggy" scene in Manchester and the state of mind of that scene at that time.. "Loose Fit" is in regards to the loose fitting clothing worn during the early UK rave days.. and what was later seen in the US between 92-96. Not to be confused with the candy raver crazy of the late 90's and beyond.. This was the real deal..
