Al had the guile and the sideways smile
Bad boy and god
Beck knew how to push a boy to blush
Known as The Fox

Tom came out in June to a crowded room
No one was shocked
Ed had the hair, the shoes and the blues
Got me arrested once

'Will I ever get this song off my lips' is what you said
We were at each others buttons and zips
In the blossom shed

Joe wanted to go before he could
Joe's doing good
Cath was my all and every day
She married in May

    General CommentNot just about 'getting it on' but yes, teenage groping is part of it. I think Guy is recalling the group he hung around with when he was 16 or 17. Al, Becks, Tom, Ed, Joe and Cath. Are they real? Maybe, maybe not but they sound much more fun than the guys I hung around with in the sixth form!

    General CommentWell, it's about "gettin' it on", innit?
    "We were at each other's buttons and zips in the blossom shed".

    General CommentIt's "the blues and the shoes" not the other way around.
