  • Fed up with your indigestion
    Swallow words one by one
    Your folks got high at a quarter to five
    Don't you feel your growing up undone

    Nothing but the local DJ
    He said he had some songs to play
    What went down from his fooling around
    Gave hope and a brand new day

    Imagine all the girls
    Ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
    And the boys
    Ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
    And the strings
    Eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee

    And the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums

    Nothing was the same again
    All about where and when
    Blowing our minds in our life unkind
    Gotta love the BPM
    When the smoke was all baton
    Remember how this begun
    We wore his love like a hand in a glove
    Where the future plays it all night long

    And nothing but the girls
    Ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
    And the boys
    Ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
    And the strings
    Eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee

    And the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums

    Imagine all the girls
    Ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
    And the boys,
    Ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
    And the strings
    Eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee
    And the drums
    Ah ah ah ah, ah, ah, ah, oh

    And all the girls
    Ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
    And the boys
    Ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
    And the strings
    Eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee

    And the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums Writer/s: Katie White, Jules De Martino
