Time For Heroes Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Did you see the stylish kids in the riot?
Shovelled up like muck
Set the night on fire
Wombles bleed truncheons and shields
You know, I cherish you my love

But there's a rumour spread nasty disease around town
Caught 'round the houses with your trousers down
A headrush in the bush
You know, I cherish you my love
Ohh, I cherish you my love

Tell me what can you want now you've got it all
The scene is obscene
Time will strip it away
A year and a day
And Bill Bones
Bill Bones knows what I mean
He knows

It's eating, it's chewing me up
It's not right for young lungs to be coughing up blood
Oh it's all
It's all trouble in my hands
And its all up the walls

Well the stale chips are up and the hopes stakes are down
It's only ignorant faces you bring this town down
I sighed and sunken with pride
Well, I passed myself down on my knees
Yes, I passed myself down on my knees

Now tell me what can you want now you've got it all
The scene is obscene
Time will strip it away
A year and a day
And Bill Bones
Bill Bones, knows what I mean
He knows

Fever more distressing sights than that
Of an Englishman in a baseball cap
We'll die in the class we were born
Well that's a class of our own, my love
A class of our own, my love

Did you see the stylish kids in the riot?
Shovelled up like muck
Set the night on fire
Wombles bleed truncheons and shields
You know I cherish you, my love
Ohh, I cherish you, my love
