I wasn't there in 83
When the Ramones were kicking
And the punks were mushing down on Minor Threat

I wasn't there in 79
When Oï Poloï were going Oï ! Oï !
Punks would live and die for anarchy

And I don't wanna hear that shit
About you being better than me
You're so blind so you can't see
We've got exactly the same convictions
And we all hate soCIety

The most important thing is not
Try to freeze things so you're
Sure that you will never be left out

You're getting older you should know
The music's changing and (Oï ! Oï !) there's
No way anyone can stop the flow

And I don't wanna hear that shit
About you being better than me
You're so blind so you can't see
We've got exactly the same convictions
And we all hate soCIety
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Cause I was born in 78
Big Jim was born in 77
The twins were born in 75
I wasn't there in 78
I wasn't there but I don't care

I wasn't there in 78888888888888888
I wasn't there in 78888888888888888
Cause I was born in 788888888888888
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Oï !
Oï !
Oï !
