WOMBATS lyrics : "1996"

I had no cares in the 1990's
I knew of no downfalls
Though war was breaking out all around me

My concerns were with prank calls

She kissed me on the cheek, she kissed me on the cheek

Right in front of the older kids
When our self belief, when our self belief
Wasn't scared by the modern itch


Cos now it feels like...


We kiss with one eye on our TV set
And the more I give the less I get
Needing fairground rides just to spark a smile

There's little here to miss...

Bring back 1996

Bring back 1996
So hard to beat those teenage kicks
Bring back 1996


We were cloning sheep in the 1990's
We were building telescopes

And sugar filled the whole of my body
As I urged it on to grow


I kissed her on the cheek, I kissed her on the cheek
Just to impress the older kids
When my self belief, when my self belief

Wasn't lost in the modern glitch

Cos now it feels like...


We kiss with one eye on our TV set
And the more I give the less I get

Needing fairground rides just to spark a smile
There's little here to miss...


Bring back 1996
Bring back 1996


Stop talking, stop talking
I need a lover not a friend tonight
I'm leaving, I'm leaving

I'm not cut out for the modern life

I'll never beat those teenage kicks

I'll never beat those teenage kicks
