Where were you in '92?
Where were you in '92?
Where were you in '92?,92?,92?,92?

This is how we do in the XR2
The boyz look fine, stereos alpine
20/20, thunderbird at 12-0-9
Took a pill, good time all the time

This is how we do in the XR2
The boyz look fine, stereos alpine
20/20, thunderbird at 12-0-9
Took a pill, good time all the time

Brick lane massive
We were like grime
Labyrinth, world dance
Bagley's time
High-top fades
We ain't never paid
Roll up jeans, E's, Lucozade
Versace jeans, shades and chains
We bol in there like we late
DJ, MC's, private raves
Keep it secret, light it, mate

Whistle whistle blow blow
Here we here we go go
[ 3x]

Some of them drink Heineken
And some of them drink Bacardi
Some of them talk a lot of shit
And act rowdy
Some say people follow me
Some say people is the key
When the music's got a beat
Then that's what gets me
Some say...
Some say...
When the music's got a beat
Then that's what gets me
Some people think we are stupid
But we are not

XR2, 808
MP3, MC8
XOX the MC5
MTV has ADD
NBC and BET
BBC is OAP
REM KLF
IQ up the ICQ
CB4 CPT
BBD and ATL
PDD had BIG
NYC had R'n'B
OPP YRB
TLC SWV
JO DC
XXX
I heart you
XR2

Whistle whistle blow blow
Here we here we go go
Whistle whistle blow blow
Here we here we go go
Whistle whistle blow blow
Here we here we go go
Whistle whistle blow blow
Here we here we go go go go go go go

    General Comment:The song is a mixture of her experience partying in the rave scene in London and references to pop culture happening at that time.

    *92 = was one of the better years for the England rave scene
    *Took a pill, good time, all the time = self explainatory
    *labyrinth, world dance = specific dance events/clubs in london at the time
    *E's, Lucozade = ecstasy + energy sport drink
    *DJ's, MC's, private raves = self explainatory
    *Keep it secret, light it, mate. = as in underground raves + spark up the weed
    *Whistle, whistle
    Blow, blow = raver blowing a whistle

    chowfun18 did a nice job of covering the pop culture references

    General Comment:Whoever wrote the stuff about the asteroid had to have been high.
    This is clearly about the rave scene in 92. Plus she refers to shit from 92 if you're old enough to remember it, you'd know that.
    The rave scene was at its peak in the early nineties everywhere I think. I know it was in the USA, also.

    General Comment:Whistle, whistle
    Blow, blow
    Here we, here we
    go, go...

    Is incorrect. What I am hearing ( what was on the lyrics when this song was on myspace) is "We so we so ruff, ruff,/Hillary Hillary Duff Duff"
    Now exactly what this means I am not sure but I love it

    General Comment:I dont think that the Hillary Duff lyric is quite right. I think she is making fun of the anagram words for every thing that have become normal vobac for the normal westerner

    General Comment:no offence but none of you guys know s hit
    Xr2 is a car, shes not refering to an asteroid. like "tell-me-what" said. that's why she says "in the Xr2" and "stereos alpine".
    and it is NOT "We so we so ruff, ruff,/Hillary Hillary Duff Duff"
    its tallking about british hip hop culture hence the references to clothing, drugs and music.
