"Kings and Queens of The Underground" as written by William M A Broad, Steve Stevens and William Morrison....
Born in a time that wasn’t made to last. In 1977 it went fast.
Johnny told us to rise, not to give a shit.
And then ‘Kiss me deadly’ and we had a hit.
Last night in the Roxy we fucked on the floor.
Shot up in the bathroom and said we were bored.

But if you are here tonight – And you hear these sounds
Then we are still Kings and Queens of the underground
I don’t mean to be profound but if i’m still around
Then we are still Kings and Queens of the underground.

1984 ‘Rebel Yell’ had the floor.
And all we said was ‘more more more’
Well I touched you with my ‘Eyes Without A Face’.
I was ‘Hot in the City. Yes I thought I was ace.
But I didn’t know then when i was in your front room
On MTV baby I was high as the moon

Oooh Golden years
Oooh Golden years
Oooh Golden years
Oooh Golden years

Sold all my vinyl – It went up my arm
And i thought rock n roll wouldn’t do me no harm.
Now i’m rolling a joint, yes I’m dressed in black
If we lose the music baby we can never go back

Jonesy said, ‘Bill, don’t be profound
If you are still a King of the underground’
If you hear my voice, dig these Rebel sounds
Then we are still Kings and Queens of the Underground
If you hear my voice and I’m still around…
Then we are still Kings and Queens of the Underground

Oooh Golden years
Oooh Golden years
Oooh Golden years
Oooh Golden years
