Hooray For The 21st Century lyrics

Every sweet little lie

Ever whispered to you now rings true

No need to wake the sleeping dogs

When they'll just turn on you



I'll make my way instead

To the foot of your ivory tower

But no love shall I find there

Among the leaves and the dying flowers



What became of the love we knew?



Beat the swine black and blue

You and I and me and you

What became of the love we knew?

What became of the love we knew?



The Thames and the Mersey

The Tyne and the Wear and the Clyde

They spew slums like gravy

On the banks of the poisonous tide



They washed up a pale thin girl

Alone in her ivory tower

Scratching her skin with the thorns that grow

On the stems of the wild flowers



What became of the love we knew?



Beat the swine black and blue

You and I and me and you

What became of the love we knew?



What became of the working class?

Nike Air, Reebok, Addidas

Scratch cards, pinball's ecstasy



Hooray for the 21st century



Living in a looking glass

As the beauty of life goes by

You're going to be so old

You're going to be so old

Your skins so cold



Hooray for the 21st Century
