you can go and eat your Chinese food over
drunken fools singing 80’s tunes
they’ll be singing out of tune saying
get the foreigners out of my area

a skinhead in a Burberry coat
this is not the sort of place you want to take your kids to
fifty pound shops
and nothing left to inspire me in


starring at the government not noticing the queen
a wilkinson’s and a kfc
is this everything you need for a cultured city?
or is this everything you need to promote burglary

you don’t get this in the country side
a teenager coming at you with a knife
oh but you do
there must be something wrong with our society or is it


i read the news today
a youth killed himself in a horrible way
he hung himself
from the local supermarket car park
walking down canon hill lane
i saw the flowers lay where a car crash took place
a drug dealer crashed into a chicane
it sort of sums up my area in

    General Commenti use to live in morden and this does not remind me of the area, i cant remember a wilkinsons in morden. This is another band desperate to be the arctic monkeys.

    General Commentwhoever ffafbmv is has to be the most complete wanker ever. Do you not know music is subjective, my point is valid to some and your point of view is just a critiscm of my point of view so keep listening to bands just like good shoes who are desperate to be arctic monkeys you piss stain and allow peoples judgements to stand without some cock jockey commenting on it

    General Commentsorry but no way are good shoes trying to be like arctic monkeys. they're very original. this song is sort of different from all their others actually. the other ones are definitely nothing like arctic monkeys. Alex Turner's lyrics are just mundane working class things but in a nutshell you can tell by listening to the album that Rhys Jones is frustrated about the unromantic mundane life he has been living and wants to do something. Perhaps better summed up in All In My Head.

    General CommentAgree with Changles, Good Shoes are not trying to be Arctic Monkeys at all. Have you heard AM new album!! Morden is such a great song and correct me if im wrong but he says 'super drunk in a kfc' makes much more sense to me. Fast food joints seem to attract the drunk around my city anyway :). Rhys is very cynicle in this song, looking upon his home town in a very unromantic way. It is genious the way this song has jammed so much that is typical of towns into one relatively short song, taking the first verse for example!!! Amazing

    General CommentI live in Morden and this song is ridiculous. I agree with ashman4, these nobheads are just another spin off of arctic monkeys. There is nothing intelligent about this song.

    What the fuck is this supposed to mean, "starring at the government not noticing the queen". Doesn't make any sense, they're just a topman band trying to be clever.

    General Commentwhoever said goodshoes are a spin of from the artic monkeys need some musical knowlege...good shoes are one of the best bands that have come along latley along with the maccabees, compare them to the artic monkeys pah!..fucking artic monkeys are a pop band who desperatly want to be like oasis or the stone roses but are too rubbish enough to even compare...

    General Commentok. ive never been to morden but hu gives a shit if the song makes sense or not? i like the song, i dont really know why i just do, but i porbly still would like the sog if the ltrics were different. bte all of u arctic monkey haters can piss off n go hump each other. they are 1 of the best bands out and prety miuch in a league of their own. i do like good shoes, but tbh they may aswell b the crap on the bottom arctic monkeys shoes. u cant test the arctic monkeys! u can hate the arctic monkeys but im sure they hate you to biatches!

    General Comment'littlelinky', you fucking long you been listening to indie music mate?..I bet you used to love r&b and mainstream dance music then you heard of the artic monkeys then razorlight and snow patrol and the kooks..and now you've purchased a tie and cardigon and think your 'scene' and I also bet your about 16?..or am I wrong?, sorry to generalise but someone who likes alex turner that much and thinks that much of the artic monkeys must be some kind of new breed indie wanker..listen to some proper indie music ...
