  • Hot, strong, young and dumb
    Yeah, we had no fear
    Way back when we said
    We'd both be millionaires
    Now those days are over
    We're all ghosts

    We used to sleep all day, talk all night
    Stay up by the TV light, oh-oh
    When your baby teeth ain't milk and white
    Wipe this darkness from your eyes, oh-oh
    I said I've come on love we'll be just fine
    We're gonna live just like it's 1999

    In 1990
    In 1999
    In 1990
    In 1999

    Back then we were trading cars behind the swings
    Oh no now it's money, gold and diamond rings
    Now those days are over
    We're all ghosts

    We used to sleep all day, talk all night
    Stay up by the TV light, oh-oh
    When your baby teeth ain't milk and white
    Wipe this darkness from your eyes, oh-oh
    I said I've come on love we'll be just fine
    We're gonna live just like it's 1999

    In 1990
    In 1999
    In 1990
    In 1999

    Oh oh no, where does it go?
    Will we ever fill your body up with chemicals
    Oh oh no, kaleidoscopes
    but whatever living better in the...

    In 1990
    In 1999
    In 1990
    In 1999

    Nintendo, Atari, same as my Ferrari
    I got it, I want it, I I
    In 1990
    Sony Electronics, food and economics
    I got it, I want it, I I
    In 1999
