We met when we were at school
Never took no shit from no one, we weren't fools
The teacher says we're dumb, we're only having fun
You know we piss on everyone in the classroom

When we got thrown out I left without much fuss
And weekends we'd go dancing down Streatham on the bus
You always made me laugh got me in bad fights
Play me pool all night smoking menthol

I practiced daily in my room
You were down at the Crown planning your next move
Go on a nicking spree hit the wrong guy
Each of you get three years in Brixton

I did my very best to write
How was Butlins? Were the screws too tight?
When you lot get out were gonna hit the town
We'll burn it fuckin' down to a cinder

'Cause years have passed and things have changed
And I move anyway I wanna go
And I'll never forget the feeling I got
When I heard that you'd got home

And I'll never forget the smile on my face
'Cause I knew where you would be
And if you're in the Crown tonight have a drink on me
But go easy, step lightly, stay free
