"Stone Thames" as written by Michael Geoffrey Jones and Don Letts....
Heard the news about the scare
In the underwear
Populations getting thin
Forget the bomb its carnal sin yeah!
Marriage up divorce is down
No one wants to fuck around
Save the rose reject romance
Micky Mouse don't drop his pants
Now to sexual relations
Better take a wife
Now that sex is death
Better lead a boring life
No time for social kissing
You'll hardly raise a smile
When you think what you'll be missing
Iron undies back in style

Now where did it start?
And where will it end?
Be nice to the wife
Can't trust your friends
Masculine natural nowadays can offend
Never gonna fall in love again

Seems like only yesterday
Cocaine and extasy
Run around and jump on anything ya see
A marriage of convenience
Saw a doctor went abroad
Saved up a few pennies

Ran the weelchair down to Lourdes
Now handsome is as handsome does
And I did it everywhere
Before the currant era
I didn't have a care
Bloodstream destination
Megavitamin therapy
Artificial insemination
D.I.Y. vasectomy
Oh spaceman junkfood Dallas
The 20th century
Two World Wars a Great Depression
This must be Germ War III
Now where did it start?
And where will it end?
Be nice to the wife
Can't trust your friends
Masculine natural nowadays can offend
Never gonna fall in love again

No need for alimony
'cause no one wants to split
leisure times a gamble
But jogging keeps you fit
Packed my bags for China
Join the yellow race
Nostradamus had a theory
They're inheriting the place
Blamed it on the Haliens
C.I.A and KGB
A.R.C. light a shining
Down on monogamy
New date really hard
Promiscure? Change your views
Unless you got a health card
Take a tip from Howard Hughes
Oh Trocadero transfer
I-Beam closet scene
Cat and mouse with the press
Exposé celebrity

Now where did it start?
And where will it end?
Be nice to the wife
Can't trust your friends
Masculine natural nowadays can offend
Never gonna fall in love again
No no no

The tramp of time continues
En masse to wedding bells
But they haven't made no breakthrough
To helper T. white cells
Wholesale Hyper wipe out
Technology against the pest
Put away those etchings
Sorry baby no contest
Notches and phone members
Collection flesh as pelts
Stealing cancers thunder
Blows below the belt
Oh don't it make you wonder
'Bout how the cards are dealt
Hoyl cow

Now where did it start?
And where will it end?
Be nice to the wife
Can't trust your friends
Masculine natural nowadays can offend
Never gonna fall in love again

    General CommentAbsitively posolutey about HIV/AIDS. Pretty dated 25 years later, though, as we realise that the virus is NOT the end of the world.
