"Sixteen" as written by and Peter Shelley....
You know I don't like dancin'
An' I don't like to bop
Too much movement's exertion
Makes me wish I could drop
Dro' dro' dro' drop

An' I don't like French kissin'
'cause you swallow my tongue
And you think that you're, oh so very old
You only want me 'cause you think I'm so young
Yo' yo' yo' young

All right
Okay
No way

An' I wish, I was sixteen again
Then things would be such fun
All the things I'd do would be the same
But they're much more fun
Than when you're twenty wo' wo' wo' wo' wo' one

All right
Okay
No way

An' I hate modern music
Disco boogie pop
They go on an' on an' on an' on an' on
How I wish they would stop

    Yair I hear ya pete...This song still seems relevant to me even now. Just replace disco and boogie with hip-hop and techno. An awesome song from a highly underrated punk band. Gimmie the Buzzcocks over the Clash any old day. (bound to start some controversy... hopefully) :P
