Just teenagers testing their courage

A                           G
Standing outside nightclubs in the snow

     F                  A
It's not very cool or impressive

     A                             G
They let in all the girls from the year below

   F                       A    
No need for IDs with those dresses

And she can keep it

B                                            Riff 3
The fast food and the cinema, it's not worth it


B                                                  G
Got word from down South, where he had heard it by word of mouth

And nobody was left here in the end

B                                                  G
Got news from Uncle Hue, through his second cousin once removed

B                                                          Riff 3
It's too late there's a housing estate, it's called Highroyds

B                                                      G
Got a text from an ex, she wants to know when we're in London next

B                                               Riff 3 x3
