"In Love with the Eighties (Pink Tux to the Prom)" as written by and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
So it was Jeremy in 1983
In his ocean pacific t
Who got a bloody knee
On his skateboard
In the half pipe
In the backyard
That Tuesday night

And I'm only gonna pierce my left ear
And I've been working on this mustache all summer long
And my favorite band will always be tears for fears
And I'm gonna wear a pink tux to the prom

Cutting class through the first floor window
He's driving fast cause he never did a thing slow
And I look up to my big bro
Cause in the 80's all the ladies grabbed his hand and couldn't let go

And I'm only gonna pierce my left ear
And I've been working on this mustache all summer long
And my favorite band will always be tears for fears
And I'm gonna wear a pink tux to the prom (a pink tux to the prom)

Doo doo, a doo doo doo
Pink tux to the prom
Doo doo, a doo doo doo
Pink tux to the prom

I am gonna wear a pink tux to the prom
Live without a care, what could possibly go wrong?

When you're president of the breakfast club
And you're not hesitant to fall in love (to fall in love)
To throw it away to fall in love with the 80's

I am gonna wear a pink tux to the prom
Live without a care, what could possibly go wrong?
I am gonna wear a pink tux to the prom
Live without a care
Cause you threw it away to fall in love with the 80's

Doo doo, a doo doo
Doo doo, a doo doo
Doo doo, a doo doo

    General CommentThese lyrics are more than a little bit wrong. Here's how it actually goes:

    So it was Jeremy in 1983
    In his Ocean Pacific tee
    Who got a bloody knee
    On his skateboard
    In the half pipe
    In the backyard
    That Tuesday night.

    And I'm only gonna pierce my left ear
    And I've been working on this mustache all summer long.
    And my favorite band will always be Tears For Fears
    And I'm gonna wear a pink tux to the prom.

    Cuttin' class through the first flood window --
    He's driving fast cuz he never did a thing slow.
    And I look up to my big bro
    Cuz in the '80s all the ladies grabbed his hand and couldn't let go.

    And I'm only gonna pierce my left ear
    And I've been working on this mustache all summer long.
    And my favorite band will always be Tears For Fears
    And I'm gonna wear a pink tux to the prom --
    A pink tux to the prom…

    Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo.
    Pink tux to the prom.
    Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo.
    Pink tux to the prom.

    I am gonna wear
    A pink tux to the prom.
    Live without a care --
    What could possibly go wrong?

    When you're the president of the Breakfast Club
    And you're not hesitant to fall in love --
    To fall in love.

    To throw it away to fall in love with the '80s.

    I am gonna wear
    A pink tux to the prom.
    Live without a care --
    What could possibly go wrong?

    I am gonna wear
    A pink tux to the prom.
    Live without a care --
    Cuz you threw it away
    To fall in love…

    With the '80s.

    Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo.
    Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo.
    Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo.

    General CommentOther than a tribute ot the 80s of sorts, it is just saying do whatever you want to do, and don't worry about what other people think.

    General CommentI don't know about growing up in the '80s...but some of the music and movies from that time period seem so depressing, and I think today the '80s are so romanticised and I don't think they were that good after all. People choose to remember the good parts but forget the bad parts. Just like your grandfather, way back when he was your age, you know what I mean? Sorry for the rambling.
