about

Fings ain't wot they used to be in 2022!! –
A vacuous world, where people try to present themselves as something they are not. 'Fake news & tattoos' a social media hurricane. Arthur sees the people surrounding him; he doesn't like what he sees. Everyone is all about themselves. There is no community & the collective spirit has gone – Arthur looks back to the days of the thinking working class; he knows there has been better & these times can come again. He thinks back to his childhood; he is a bright lad, but has had no advantages in life; he had been a looked after kid.

lyrics

FINGS AIN'T WOT THEY USED TO BE in 2022!

1
There's blokes in tracksuit trousers
Crack dens in council houses
& things ain't wot they used to be.....

And girls with dodgy tattoos,
glued to phones will bad news
& things ain't wot they used to be.....

BRIDGE
we used to have fun, larking about
putting the world to rights
now we're done, nothing but fights
evryone mad on twitter daily

2
we used to love all rock n roll
till simon cowell, he killed it all
& things ain't wot they used to be.....

when pubs & clubs were always full
one by one they closed em all
& things ain't wot they used to be.....

we used to dress up, gadding about
friday & saturday nights
now no-ones going out
you need a bank loan for a good week's holiday

3
let's hope one day we'll get it back
round & round our favourite track
& things ain't wot they used to be.....

until the great day comes around
we'll club in for one last round
& things ain't wot they used to be.....
& things ain't wot they used to be.....
