All of your friends are cunts
Your mother is a ball-point pen thief
Notoriety follows you
Like beatings follow rain

Bring on the big-hitters
You've got a prophets name

All of your tales are lies
You've never been to Alton towers
Michael Caine doesn't follow you
And you've never been to Spain

Bring on the go-getters
You've got a prophets name

    General CommentThe best ever opening line of a song ever.
    No arguement is possible.

    I get the impression that this is probably aimed at those sort of posters who make up wild claims about themselves online to make themselves more interesting.

    General CommentOn the live at ULU part of the McLuskyism compilation, the band reveal this song is actually about Gareth Edwards, the Welsh ruby player.

    Falco got his name wrong in the song title.

    General CommentThe opening line does indeed kick ass.

    Something tells me that this song is less about the internet and more about people who make up stories about themselves in general.

    In real life.

    General CommentWell yes, but it spills over onto here as well. They're all the same sort of people. I like the whole mediocreness of them making up that they've been to Alton Towers. Very amusing.
    People are crap.

    They watch Sex and The City.
