  • I thought it was like a film
    Reviewed but never seen
    Where everybody played themselves
    As a drama king or queen

    The music was overwhelming
    Glitter in and fiend
    Some are chavy like a requiem
    In Denim and Leopardskin

    I visualise the flashbacks
    School, home cross obsess
    Heart is too much of everything
    The cliches, the candles, the mess

    Lucy and I never seen with David
    Brian never talks
    Help me in policks and sense in Arnold
    Tell me all about Reddocks
    Ozzy's last collection
    Beavis closed himself
    A little more rouge and powder cheeks
    But the base is pay off

    This is our last chance for goodbye
    Let the music begin
    Shining and souring like a requiem
    In denim and leopardskin

    In ended with a motorbike
    A search for every dance
    Pouring over our photographs
    To make it all fake sense
    Glomorous in it's own way
    Shouting above the dead
    Some are chavy like a requiem
    In denim and leopardskin

    Janice and Marlyn, Ronald Creepers
    Malcom's around the block
    Adam's in the jungle film
    But Luc has let it walk
    The Johnsons and the Jenkins
    Hail by keeping smile
    All you need to make it big
    It takes some style

    This is our last chance for goodbye
    Let the music begin
    Shining and souring like a requiem
    In denim and leopardskin

    This is our last chance for goodbye
    Let the music begin
    Shining and souring like a requiem
    In denim and leopardskin

    Requiem in denim and leopardskin

    This is our last chance for goodbye
    Let the music begin
    Shining and souring like a requiem
    In denim and leopardskin

    This is our last chance for goodbye
    Let the music begin
    Shining and souring like a requiem
