The first[last? ] lot make a few mistakes
They didn't die young, they got big waists
We got let down at the back of earls court
[+and? ] we sware that night we'd never get caught
Cos we were smarter than they were (they were)

We started out with guitars and hate
With our rooms in the clouds we could hardly wait
Our legs apart, our amps up high
The stage caught fire (then? ) the charts blew up
And we play more than they do (they do)

Promises promises
Do you remember the promises promises - I do-
Do you remember the promises promises - I do-

We made our shirts with sprays and knives
Then we saved up for weeks for malcolm's strides
Our hair was short we said what we thought
We'd never be scared [we'd] never be bought
Never sell out like they did - they did

Promises promises
Do you remember the promises promises - I do-
Do you remember the promises promises - I do-

Soon you'll get your gear form marks and sparks
Punk'll take over top of the pops
Think you're having a real cool time?
Watch out kid you're next in line - oh yeah

Do you remember the promises promises - I do-
Do you remember the promises promises - I do-

Where were you in '75
When there weren't no gigs and we were jive
(promises promises promises remember)
No one gave a shit for our rock'n'roll dream
R men laughed re-release the cream
(promises promises promises remember)
And they thought we were stupid
And they thought we were stupid
And we promised we'd get back get back
Do you remember the promises promises
Do you remember the promises promises
What I do, what I do, what I do, what
I do, I do, I do, what I do, what I do

Promises promises promises remember
Promises promises promises remember
Promises promises promises remember
Promises promises promises remember

Promises promises promises remember
Promises promises promises remember
Promises promises promises remember
Promises promises promises remember
Promises promises promises remember
