Mummy works 9 till 5 in a job that she hates
But we need to survive and we know we
Don't have to explain our lives
But I tell you that we live like we got 9
Our feet on the dashboard, we're not posh
Got a lot of friends, but I don't got a lot of dosh
Then the sirens they go ohh-ohh-ohh
And the sirens they go ohh, ohh, ohh

Sitting, watching, waiting, wishing
I tell you one thing, you never knew it
At the back of the bus there was so much to give
So I dream big
And when they screaming get out, get out
All they wanna hear is get down, get down
When they screaming get out, get out
All they wanna hear is get down, get down
Get down, get down

They be our streets for sure
When we come around they always wanting more
And we running up bills that we can't afford
And we dance all night cause we never get bored, no
Always talking trash, we're not posh
And we're flying so high like oh my gosh
Then the sirens they go ohh-ohh-ohh
And the sirens they go ohh, ohh, ohh

Sitting, watching, waiting, wishing
I tell you one thing, you never knew it
At the back of the bus there was so much to give
So I dream big
And when they screaming get out, get out
All they wanna hear is get down, get down
When they screaming get out, get out
All they wanna hear is get down, get down
Get down, get down

Nearly 17 with a face full of spots
Taking shots, with the heavy hard liquor getting faded
Till the penny drops
Out in the cold, fur coat, no knickers
All for show got a tighten the screws or I'll fall
And streets can be a black hole
But I gotta sing and laugh about it now
I be rapping in my sleep
Tryina make it in this crazy town
And I'm still alive but I don't know how
That's why I'm

Sitting, watching, waiting, wishing
I tell you one thing, you never knew it
At the back of the bus there was so much to give
So I dream big
And when they screaming get out, get out
All they wanna hear is get down, get down
When they screaming get out, get out
All they wanna hear is get down, get down

And when we get old, old

And when we get old
The time's not on our side
Yeah we can be satisfied
We don't let nobody dim our light
Never boring and we never try
Free to fly yeah we fly so high
In it for the thrill of it whatever you think of it
Always gonna find us.
