  • A wave for the cameras
    All fur coat and no knickers
    Jayne Mansfield she came down
    To cheer up the town
    Lord Bono and his pals
    They were a bit too busy saving the world
    Well you have to take your hat off to The Edge

    Those were the days my friend
    We took the Stretford End
    Now its a Theatre of Dreams
    Its all smiles and handshakes
    Theres not a function I cant make
    If the photo opportunity knocks
    So long you suckers
    All fur coat and no knickers
    Cos I just sold my funeral
    To HellOh Oh Oh
    Those were the days my friend

    We took the Stretford End
    Now its a Theatre of Dreams. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
