lyrics

Heavy metal tit for tat
Sweltering in a drop forge cast
Do you know the way to Wolverhampton?
Bought the Diamond Head LP
From the legend Silver Terry

Handbags at the BYO
Local girls mess with your head
Listening to Judge Dread
Then you miss the last bus home
Better call your dad he’ll moan
You got him out of bed

It’s a pig’s ear growing up
In a market town of indeterminate status
But that was then but this is now
And nothing’s changed that time won’t allow
To change us, change us

Smokers coughing on the 144
British Leyland Red Robo’s war
And life shows you the door
Heavy metal that’s your tribe
It’s come to bury you alive for sure

And you can turn the volume up
And you can call your girlfriends bluff
But she prefers the Wonderstuff
She’s in the wrong era

You can put the speaker on the windowsill
Make a racket make the neighbours ill
I dare you; I dare you
So never the mind the albatross
Or the Saturday gigs at the Holy Cross
That put an end to

The festival that never was
On the village green and all because you bailed
Last minute curtailed
On the day the world turned blue
The only thing I ever to wanted to do

Was heavy metal…

All I ever wanted to do
All I ever wanted from you
Was heavy metal
All I ever wanted from you was heavy metal

That’s heavy
