1996 by The Wombats


Verse 1:
I had no cares in the 1990's
I knew of no downfalls
Though war was breaking out all around me
My concerns were with prank calls
She kissed me on the cheek, she kissed me on the cheek
Right in front of the older kids
When our self belief, our self belief
Wasn't scarred by the modern itch
'Cause now it feels like
Chorus 1:
Because with on eye on our TV sets
And the more I give the less I get
And with fairground rides, just to spark a smile
There's little here to miss,
Bring back 1996, bring back 1996
I want to beat those teenage kicks
Bring back 1996
Verse 2:
We were cloning sheep in the 1990's
We were building telescopes
And sugar filled the whole of my body
As I urged it on to grow
I kissed her on the cheek, I kissed her on the cheek
Just to impress the older kids
But my self belief, my self belief
Wasn't lost in the modern glitch
'Cause now it feels like
Chorus 2:
Because with on eye on our TV sets
And the more I give the less I get
And with fairground rides, just to spark a smile
There's little here to miss,
Bring back 1996, bring back 1996
Bridge:
Stop talking, you won't stop talking
(Ah, ah, ah, ah)
I need a lover not a friend tonight
I'm leaving, I'm leaving
(Ah, ah, ah, ah)
I'm not cut out for the modern life
(Guitar solo)
Outro:
I'll never beat those teenage kicks x 3
Bring back 1996
