Was your hair cut by the council?
Two in one, Louise Brookes and Shirley Temple.
One Madonna glove and a jacket too tight.
Are you wearing your whole badge collection out tonight?

I've got the style and you can't cheat it
Stop! Don't copy me!
I've got the style and you can't beat it
Stop! Don't copy me!
I've got the style and you can't cheat it
Stop! Don't copy me!
I've got the style and you can't beat it
Stop! Don't copy me me me!

Like your busby, guess you saw the same on me,
Get out you want to pay me a royalty.
You can laugh but it looks much better on me,
What can one do? I'm always years too early

I've got the style and you can't cheat it
Stop! Don't copy me!
I've got the style and you can't beat it
Stop! Don't copy me!
I've got the style and you can't cheat it
Stop!
I've got the style and you can't beat it
Stop! Don't copy me me me!

Heard you're learning drums too: Quelle suprise!
Guess you'll be checking out my fierce beats.
Three drummers in one band hmm, un peu de trop
Get back on your guitar or else go solo!

I've got the style and you can't cheat it
Stop! Don't copy me!
I've got the style and you can't beat it
Stop! Don't copy me!
I've got the style and you can't cheat it
Stop! Don't copy me!
I've got the style and you can't beat it
Stop!

    General CommentMaybe they're talking about the whole 80's electro look coming back, and everyone has the same style as them now...

    General CommentI think they're talking about a period in their development where they were copying one another, sounds like it especially from this verse:

    Heard you're learning drums too: Quelle suprise!
    Guess you'll be checking out my fierce beats.
    Three drummers in one band hmm, un peu de trop
    Get back on your guitar or else go solo!

    Also the way they interact when they sing the song live- pointing at one another, pushing each other, Dee often answering to the question "Was your hair cut by the council?"- personally I think all the copying was going on in the band, but is obviously not an issue any more since they've written a song about it together!

    General CommentDefinitely agree with Heart Prisim, here's a link to them performing live (this is the third or fourth song I think, can't remember which) and it's obviously between them... makes sense, they obviously write about internal band conflicts i.e. Argument etc.
