Badges Posters Stickers T-Shirts

Album: Private Investigations single (1982)
  • Me and my mate we think you're great
    Some we like and some we hate
    I know him I've seen him on the adverts
    Got any badges posters stickers or t-shirts

    You were bloody great last time you come
    I thought me 'ead was stuck in the bass drum
    Bloody loud, me bloody head hurts
    Got any badges posters stickers and t-shirts

    So how'd you get a start in show biz
    My mate's as good on the drums as he is
    My mate thinks I'm bloody cracked
    Please sign my jacket on the back

    All them badges made of plastic
    I think they're great, just fantastic
    I''m unemployed, he's still at school
    He gets annoyed 'cause I'm such a fool

    You don't half sweat a lot up there
    Have you got showers in here'
    You''re bloody great, my bloody head hurts
    Got any badges posters stickers and t-shirts

    Yeah, me and my mate like ac-dc
    Hot & sweaty, loud & greasy
    My mom says we're a pair of perverts
    Got any badges posters stickers and t-shirts

    C'mon mister

    We hitch-hiked here in pouring rain
    Now we've missed the frigging train.

    Hey! can I have one of them lagers'

    Thanks very much, mate. can 'e have one'

    A-one, a-two, a-one two three four... Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Vassilis from Athens, GreeceIt has been released on CD as an extra track of the "You and your friend" CD single.
  • Gregg from Greenville, ScThis is the only Dire Straits song that has never appeared on CD. "Twisting By The Pool", "Two Young Lovers", and "If I Had You" were released on CD Video, in 1987, with the live version of "Two Young Lovers" from "Alchemy". None of the other three songs from the EP have ever appeared on standard audio CD in their original form.
  • Paul from Marysville, WaThis song also features original Straits' Pick Withers. He left the band after completing his work on Love Over Gold.

    In the biography of Dire Straits, which was written with band cooperation and came out after the "Twisting by the Pool" EP, the author called "Badges Posters Stickers T-Shirts" a "wry commentary on merchandising." Man, he really missed the point-- the song is obviously the backstage ramblings of a fan looking for handouts from the band.
  • Richard from Savannah, GaThis song also appears on the EP, "Twisting by the Pool".
