  • He's got a Rolling Stones tee
    But he only knows one song
    They think they're from the sixties
    But they were born in 1991
    (Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh)

    There's a man standing in the corner
    No one knows quite where he's from
    There's a fight between Jill and Lorna
    She's got a tattoo of a peace sign on her thumb
    All that and the nights just begun

    So, stay out tonight
    And see through my eyes
    Stay out this time
    And we'll be home by five

    Stay out, stay out, stay out
    Stay out, stay out, stay out
    (Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh)

    Checkered shorts and chino trousers
    Is this some kind of uniform
    It seems that they think they're gangsters
    They barely started sixth form
    (Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh)

    She thinks she's in Barbados
    But outside it's minus three
    There's a guy outside I'm avoiding
    I think that we share some history
    That time when he whispered to me, now

    Stay out tonight
    And see through my eyes
    Stay out this time
    And we'll be home by five

    Stay out, stay out, stay out
    Stay out, stay out, stay out

    'Cause there's people falling in love
    Around you
    And there's people falling over
    Their own shoes

    All those boys and girls are people
    Looking for someone to be
    All those boys and girls are people
    Waiting for their hearts to beat

    All those boys and girls are people
    Looking for someone to be
    All those boys and girls are people
    Waiting for their hearts to beat

    Stay out tonight
    And see through my eyes
    Stay out this time
    And we'll be home by five

    Stay out, stay out, stay out
    Stay out, stay out, stay out

    He's got a Rolling Stones tee
    But he only knows one song
    They think they're from the sixties
    But they were born in 1991 Writer/s: IAIN ARCHER, NINA LINDBERG NESBITT
