When I was a kid,
We only had four channels on the TV - yep, 1, 2, 3 and 4
And if you couldn't find a channel that was playing The Simpsons,
Then you were probably calling for your friend next door
I remember the first album that I bought
I memorized the sleeve and I listened 'til I was completely over it
But it's sad that I don't remember the title
Or the artist of the first song I ever downloaded

I remember seeing my first mobile phone
And being completely obsessed with 'snake'
School's biggest threat was calling home
Selling cans for 50p on my lunch break
I remember when 'LOL' meant 'lots of love'
And there wasn't such a thing as a selfie
I remember the late nineties when suddenly
They realized that pot noodles weren't healthy

'BRB', 'ASL', do you remember 'AOL'?
Do you remember your dial-up connection?
Remember MSN, and MySpace and Trojan Horses,
And your pop-up anti-virus protection?
Remember the freedom of coming home from school
And knowing that you only had to do your homework
Able to forget some of the names that had stuck
Some of those names that kinda made you feel hurt

And then you sent a picture for a laugh or to that lad
Just to get a little bit of attention
Now you've just had to explain to your mum and your dad
Why it's on Facebook and in your Twitter mentions
And then you see those names again
Those ones that you hate, just forever turning up on your timeline
In the morning, you grab your phone and check as soon as you're awake
So it's always gonna be in your eye-line

You got far less time to be a kid
Matter of fact, you probably feel like the timer has started
So take some time to fall out with that very best friend
You never thought would be the devil in karma
Camp on the hills and forget your tent
Regret every decision that you make at 15
Watch the prices go up in your local shop
I still can't believe that Freddo's are more than 10p
