look at them
there standing on the corner
look at them
they're never lonely
look at them
they're feeling like braveheart
look at them
they're gonna tear someone apart
look at them
they listen to their gangsta rap
look at them
they're caught in a ghetto trap
look at them
all that glitters is gold now
look at them
they're turning into foes now

moaning and boring
shouting out a warning
out the dark they come
with their posse yes yalling

london born...

look at them
they two sugar lump it
look at them
they blow their own trumpet
look at them
they're souring my taste
look at them
they're slowing my pace
look at them
they're always on the take now
look at them
they're always so fake now
look at them
they're afraid of failure
look at them
waiting for their saviour

    General CommentI think this is about 'chavs' (it's hard to explain what a chav is, you just have to see them, if you want to see them, either go to chavscum.co.uk, or go to a British council estate and look for the people in tracksuits). So many of the descriptions fit, for example, they love to hang out on street corners, listen to gansta rap, try and act like cockneys (hence the 'two sugar lump it' line), to talk themselves up, and just in general act like prats. In all honesty, this could apply to any British city, but King Prawn are from London, so London it is... plus, as far as your average chav is concerned, the ideal way of life is to impersonate the Londoners they see on TV, ie. Frank Butcher or Del Boy Trotter.
