"Young Men" as written by Brett Anderson and Richard Oakes....
Tony only reads Asian babes
Danny's doing doves on down the raves
Terry drinks his money away
Oh God and his sons play drums all day

On the scene on the dole in your eyes in your soul
The young men
You are the ones are the scene are the sons are the young men
Young men here we here we go again

Les says punk isn't dead
Mick is not impeccably bred
Paul he just can't get out of bed
Oh God and Phil's still off his head

On the scene, on the dole, in your eyes, in your soul,
The young men
You are the ones, are the system, are the sons, are the young men
Young men, here we, here we go again

On the scene, on the dole, in your eyes, in your soul, the young men
You are the ones, are the scene, are the young men
Cheating on the wives, all shiny suits and lazy lies, the young men
Insulting everyone, picked up your sister, kicked your son, the young men

Fighting in the clubs, flash on the streets, cash in the pubs, the young men
Boozing on the train, p-45's and cheap champagne -- the young men

    General CommentThis, brings to my mind, an accurate description of Chav's. Living off the British state and spending all ther money of Booze, drugs and sex. They constant over poering noise in the local council astate. There violence against people that are different to them. There constant folly of having underage sex with minors. There ,Frankly, Dumb nature. The "Cheating on the Wives, all shiny suits and lazy lies" is something things they inspire to do/be. The refrence to cheap booze, because they are living on the dole. This song made in 1998 is kind of a prophecy of what £young men " were becoming.
