"That Boy That Girl" as written by and James Joseph Smith....
That boys a Hoxton Hero,
Skinny fit jeans and dressed in pink,
How he dresses I care zero,
As long as he don't steal my drink.

That girls an Indie Cindy,
Lego haircut and polka-dot dress,
I don't care if she thinks she's indie,
How she's different is anyone's guess.

You've got you skin tight, colors on the floor,
With all your white lines, every slut and whore,
All the band boys in your specs and sneakers,
On your back yeah, its time to blow the speaker,

I went to a rave and it got real moody,
How can a screwface have a good time?
Was he deprived of his mothers boobie?
I doubt he's lived a life of grime
I went to a gig but nobody danced,
Everybody was far too cool,
All the kiddies they just stood there,
Is it the same at their public school?

(follow, wallow, swallow)

I stay hard like metal,
You could never merk me,
Dirty like skettle,
I kill germs like dettol,
Get mucky,
But I will never settle.

I'm an indie limey,
Yeah but I like it grimey,
And I rave with a grin,
I'm not too cool for the next big thing,
I don't wanna fuck about,
I wanna good time and that's why I'm out,
And you look silly,
When you put on your best myspace pout.

    General Commentyeah. Anyway, this song is awesome and sums the band's attitude basically. They're about getting loose, getting mental and not caring about an image.

    There's an awesome line in "Dance Lessons" -

    "Get down to the rhythm of the 80's cheese"

    Can I suggest the last of the chorus is
    "on your back yeah, time to blow the speaker"

    and also there's "follow, wallow, swallow" after "Is it the same as their public school?"

    General CommentFinally a song that shows that those wannabe indie think there cool kis are actually not cool

    but vain twats.

    most of them especially in my college, were chavs during school, the min they get into college there apperantly trendy indie kids who love "the kooks, klaxons, killers" (Funny how they all start with K XD)

    General CommentI don't think they care what anyone looks like or what anyone wears as long as its for the right reasons. They don't like the kids who run about calling themselves "indie kids" and only got skinny jeans and lego-haircuts when they became popular. I think they believe in real individuality not the fake shit everyone is calling unique now.

    General CommentRight, Im what people would consider an "Indie Kid"

    And the funny thing is...loadsa people think this insults people who follow Indie Music

    But "Indie Kids" love this song.

    What a wonderful contradiction!
