Let's go to town and switch the magazines
Drink milkshakes until we're sick
Oh, oh, it'll be so funny
Oh, oh, it'll be so funny

Drop ace drum and bass feat. Hitler and Chairman Mao
If we don't do it now then someone else will
Oh, oh, it'll be so funny
Oh, oh, it's the power not the money

This scene is the scene to be seen in
Not that the scene is what we'd be seen with
We just wanna be sixteen (sixteen)
Sixteen (sixteen)
Even though we're twenty three

This scene is the scene to be seen in
Not that the scene is what we'd be seen with
We just wanna be sixteen (sixteen)
Sixteen (sixteen)
Even though we're twenty three

Let's meet up at the empire tearooms
Recite light poetry causing light controversy
Oh, oh, it'll be so funny
Oh, oh, and we'll write funny songs about boys and girls
And other boys and other girls
This heartbreaking world where no one understands
Oh, oh, it'll be so funny
Oh, oh, it'll be so funny

This scene is the scene to be seen in
Not that the scene is what we'd be seen with
We just wanna be sixteen (sixteen)
Sixteen (sixteen)
Even though we're twenty three

This scene is the scene to be seen in
Not that the scene is what we'd be seen with
We just wanna be sixteen (sixteen)
Sixteen (sixteen)
Even though we're twenty three

Scene...

This scene is the scene to be seen in
It's the scene that I was made in
I just wanna be sixteen
Even though I'm twenty three

This scene is the scene to be seen in
Not that the scene is what we'd be seen with
We just wanna be sixteen (sixteen)
Sixteen (sixteen)
Even though we're twenty three

This scene is the scene to be seen in
Not that the scene is what we'd be seen with
We just wanna be sixteen (sixteen)
Sixteen (sixteen)
Even though we're twenty three, twenty four, twenty five, twenty six, twenty seven, twenty eight, twenty nine...!

    General CommentI think this one is about bands "acting young" to appeal to teenagers and be "in" with scene... whilst trying to look like they're not.
