[Originally by The Saints]

You say that you got the answers
You heard them all on the telephone
And now you're telling everybody
A major coup in the business zone

We got new thoughts, new ideas it's all so groovy
It's just a shame that we all seen the same old movies

And now you think that you got a first in fashion
New uniforms we all look the same
A new vogue for the now generation
A new profit in the same old game

We got new thoughts, new ideas it's all so groovy
It's just a shame that we all seen the same old movies

And you think you can run and hide what you've done?
Don't you know no one cares after the first million?
Come on!

And now you think that you got a first in fashion
New uniforms we all look the same
A new vogue for the now generation
A new profit in the same old game

Come on! We got new thoughts, new ideas we're all so groovy
It's just a shame that we all seen the same old movies

So you think you can run & hide what you've done
don't you know no one cares after the first million
Come on!

It's a shame 'cause not everybody wants to look the same
And not everybody wants to think the same
And not everybody wants to act the same
And I say everybody don't wanna to be the same

    Song MeaningThis song is The Saints calling out followers of the late 70's punk scene for all dressing, acting, and thinking the same instead of truly being individuals. Basically yelling "Poseur!"

    The reference to uniforms could possibly be a dis on their contemporaries in Radio Birdman, who wore uniforms and insignia some considered Nazi-esque, but is more likely being used metaphorically to simply describe the fashions prevalent in the early punk scene.
