She’s been going steady with a boy called Eddie
Staying out late every night
Her dad’s going mad and her mother is sad
‘Cos they can’t sleep at all ‘cos they’re uptight
Says she likes to dance to MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE
She’ll be dressed in black from head to toe
Standing by the fire she looks like a Vampire
Says Uncle Stan to her Aunty Flo

Calm Down Dad
I’m growing up real fast
I know what I’m doing I’m a teenager in love
Calm Down Dad
Nothing ever lasts
I don’t care what you’ve been told
I’m still young and you’re still old
And The Clash were 30 years ago

She believes the NME and everything they write
They say London’s the place to be
She’s gonna get a flat by STEVE LAMACQ
With holes in her settee
She said her boyfriend Eddie knows people off the telly
And they wanna talk to me
So see me in a nice frock on NEVERMIND THE BUZZCOCKS
I’m gonna be on TV

Calm Down Dad
I’m growing up real fast
I know what I’m doing I’m a teenager in love
Calm Down Dad
Nothing ever lasts
I don’t care what you’ve been told
I’m still young and you’re still old
And The Clash were 30 years ago

Gonna sing like Kate Nash
In a cockney accent
Even though she talks posh
‘Cos I know where it’s at

There’s nothing better in life than a snakebite
And a kebab with chilli sauce
And I’m not gonna work cos work is for jerks
I’m a punk-rock girl with electric force
And I’ll travel round the world on a ten pound note
On a silver black phantom bike
And I’ll sleep with a boy and I’ll sleep with a girl
And I’ll decide which one I like

Calm Down Dad
I’m growing up real fast
I know what I’m doing I’m a teenager in love
Calm Down Dad
Nothing ever lasts
I don’t care what you’ve been told
I’m still young and you’re still old
And The Clash were 30 years ago
