It was acceptable in the 80's
It was acceptable at the time
It was acceptable in the 80's
It was acceptable at the time

I've got love for you

I've got hugs for you
If you were born in the 80's, the 80's

I'll do things for you
If you were born in the 80's, the 80's
I've got hugs for you
If you were born in the 80's

It was acceptable in the 80's
It was acceptable at the time
It was acceptable in the 80's
It was acceptable at the time

    General CommentIf you were born in the 80s you are of consent age is correct but also it wasn't until 1986 that the age variable was added to the laws of consent. Meaning, you could be 40 years old pre-1986 and still have a relationship with someone as young as you wanted provided it was consensual. That's where the whole it was acceptable at the time line comes from.

    General CommentThis song makes me feel old...
    I was born i 1979.
    And this song makes me think about how alot of the people I'm dancing next to in the clubs are born in the late 80's and even the 90's.
    The 90's man!!!!!!

    General CommentI was glad someone else noticed the age of consent thing.

    This song was released in '07. If you were born in 1990, you would have been 17 years old. Thus, being born in AT LEAST '89 would have made you 18, thus legal.

    But isn't the age of consent 16 or 17 in the UK?
