"I Predict a Riot" as written by Nicholas Hodgson, Charles Richard Wilson, James Rix, Nicholas Baines and Andrew Robert White....
Watching the people get lairy
Is not very pretty I tell thee
Walking through town is quite scary
And not very sensible either
A friend of a friend he got beaten
He looked the wrong way at a policeman
Would never have happened to Smeaton
And old Leodiensian

I predict a riot, I predict a riot
I predict a riot, I predict a riot

I tried to get in my taxi
A man in a tracksuit attacked me
He said that he saw it before me
Wants to get things a bit gory
Girls run around with no clothes on
To borrow a pound for a condom
If it wasn't for chip fat, well they'd be frozen
They're not very sensible

I predict a riot, I predict a riot
I predict a riot, I predict a riot

And if there's anybody left in here
That doesn't want to be out there

Watching the people get lairy
Is not very pretty I tell thee
Walking through town is quite scary
And not very sensible

I predict a riot, I predict a riot
I predict a riot, I predict a riot

And if there's anybody left in here
That doesn't want to be out there

I predict a riot, I predict a riot
I predict a riot, I predict a riot

    General CommentWhile I fully see the 'Chavscum' angle to this song, couldnt it also seen to be a good thing in the same way that Oasis 'Cigarettes and Alcohol' is obviously about a good night.

    General CommentIt's about all the clubs closing @ the same time, forcing loads of people out onto the streets of the town (written about Leeds, but same for most places!) @ once. The chavs ("man in a tracksuit") think they're above the Indie people and so try to beat them up, causing a riot.

    Fab song!
