Back In The Seventies Lyrics

by Datarock

I'd wanna go to the Blues Parties
The Caribbean
I'd wanna Dance to Nothern Soul
Back in the Seventies
Be into Two Tone and Post Punk
New Wave and No Wave
I'd Wanna Live on Lower East Side
Back in the Seventies

Cause all the Best of the Early Eighties
At least up to '83
Was an Extension of Seventies
Postmodernity

I'd be a Fan of Fela Kuti
And a Feminist
And I'd be Dancing at the Disco
Back in the Seventies
Be into YMO and DEVO
Cultural Relativist
I'd be Engaged in the Computer Age
Back in the Seventies

How Sick It Would've Been
To be There
In the Middle of the Past
And the Future
You'd Know It Couldn't Last...

As the Story Goes Now
And Everybody Knows
Even History'll Show How
Everything Revolves
Around Peaks like Those

How to Outgrow Being a Moron?
Stuck in the Eighties
Do as D A T A R O C K
Take a Look at the Seventies
