Tommy Shea

Now Tommy Shea was just 22 years old
Sketchy lanky blonde brave and bold
He walked the strip of Newbury Street in Boston
He never noticed me cause I was a kid and only 10 now
He used to skank it up like I never ever saw
This Tommy kid yeah he fucking had it all
Black boots flight jacket bicked head and all
This kid was a wrecking shop
Yeah he was a fucking wall

Remember when Tommy used to say
Oi Oi
Remember when Tommy used to scream
Oi Oi

I throw my Pac-Man shirt on (I throw my Pac-Man shirt on)
My cordoroys and my velcro on my feet
Because I never knew what was going on (what's going on)
Until I found Boston's own Middle East
Because upstairs downstairs I didn't give a care
I was happy just hearing all the ska blare
A funny thing a thing that made me just so fat so
In 82 I guess it's worth it to take a look back

Remember when Tommy used to say
Oi Oi
Remember when Tommy used to scream
Oi Oi

(Chorus:)
Tommy kicked ass in 82
He kicked ass in 82
Tommy kicked ass in 82
That's right he kicked ass in 82

Hey Tommy where did you go
I wanna find you to let you know
This sketchy song is just for you
I'm not kidding I really wanna find you
Hey Tommy where did you go
I wanna find you to let you know
This sketchy song is just for you
I'm not kidding I used to wanna be like you

Remember when Tommy used to say
Oi Oi
Remember when Tommy used to scream
Oi Oi

(Chorus)

Tommy kicking ass I said in 82 well all right now
I said he kicked ass in 82 that's right
I said he kicked ass in 82 come on
I said he kicked ass in eighty-ty eighty-ty two
