    what do you think of this song?

    Hello, Hello. My names Terry and I'm a law abider
    There's nothing I like more than getting fired up on beer
    And when the weekends here I to exercise my right to get paralytic and fight
    Good bloke fairly
    But I get well leery when geezers look at me funny
    Bounce 'em round like bunnies
    I'm likely to cause mischief
    Good clean grief you must believe and I ain't no thief.
    Law abiding and all, all legal.
    And who cares about my liver when it feels good
    Wwhat you need is some real manhood.
    Rasher Rasher Barney and Kasha putting peoples backs up.
    Public disorder, I'll give you public disorder.
    I down eight pints and run all over the place
    Spit in the face of an officer
    See if that bothers you cause I never broke a law in my life
    Someday I'm gonna settle down with a wife
    Come on lads lets have another fight

    Eh hello. My names Tim and I'm a criminal,
    In the eyes of society I need to be in jail
    For the choice of herbs I inhale.
    This ain't no wholesale operation
    Just a few eighths and some Playstations my's vocation
    I pose a threat to the nation
    And down the station the police hold no patients
    Let's talk space and time
    I like to get deep sometimes and think about Einstein
    And Carl Young And old Kung Fu movies I like to see
    Pass the hydrator please
    Yeah I'm floating on thin air.
    Going to Amsterdam in the New Year - top gear there
    Cause I taker pride in my hobby
    Home made bongs using my engineering degree
    Dear Leaders, please legalise weed for these reasons.

    Like I was saying to him.
    I told him: "Top with me and you won't leave."
    So I smacked him in the head and downed another Carling
    Bada Bada Bing for the lad's night.
    Mad fight, his face's a sad sight.
    Vodka and Snake Bite.
    Going on like a right geez, he's a twat,
    Shouldn't have looked at me like that.
    Anyway I'm an upstanding citizen
    If a war came along I'd be on the front line with em.
    Can't stand crime either them hooligans on heroin.
    Drugs and criminals those thugs on the penny coloured will be the downfall of society
    I've got all the anger pent up inside of me.

    You know I don't see why I should be the criminal
    How can something with no recorded fatalities be illegal
    And how many deaths are there per year from alcohol
    I just completed Gran Tourismo on the hardest setting
    We pose no threat on my settee
    Ooh the pizza's here will someone let him in please
    "We didn't order chicken, Not a problem we'll pick it out
    I doubt they meant to mess us about
    After all we're all adults not louts."
    As I was saying, we're friendly peaceful people
    We're not the ones out there causing trouble.
    We just sit in this hazy bubble with our quarters
    Discussing how beautiful Gail Porter is.
    MTV, BBC 2, Channel 4 is on until six in the morning.
    Then at six in the morning the sun dawns and it's my bedtime.

    Causing trouble, your stinking rabble
    Boys saying I'm the lad who's spoiling it
    You're on drugs it really bugs me when people try and tell me I'm a thug
    Just for getting drunk
    I like getting drunk
    Cause I'm an upstanding citizen
    If a war came along I'd be on the front line with em.

    Now Terry you're repeating yourself
    But that's okay drunk people can't help that.
    A chemical reaction inside your brain causes you to forget what you're saying.

    What. I know exactly what I'm saying
    I'm perfectly sane
    You stinking student lameo
    Go get a job and stop robbing us of our taxes.

    Err, well actually according to research
    Government funding for further education pales in insignificance
    When compared to how much they spend on repairing
    Leery drunk people at the weekend
    In casualty wards all over the land.

    Why you cheeky little swine come here
    I'm gonna batter you. Come here.

    This song is great...well-written lyrics, and Mike Skinner's voice for Tim is class

    cool song and is very true from my perspective as a london youth.

    the streets have bought a very down to earth feel to garage which was getting sweep away with so solid crew style gansta bollocks.

    very nice, if you recorded it you already have some fans ready to hear it

    It's a great song. The Streets were a breath of fresh air after all that "studio gangster" arse that was around at the time (So Solid , etc). Although I have difficulty believing that he's writing everything from experience. The song Weak Become Heroes is a case in point. I doubt Mick Skinner (who's fairly young I'm guessing!&#33 was around at the height of "Acid House" parties. Great song though!!

    "That same piano loops over and over and over"

    it's been recorded-- it's on the Streets album "Original Pirate Material."

    yeah i think it's a humorous song, actually.

    great album, too-- i especially like the ska-influenced songs. reminds me a lot of the Specials & Fun Boy Three, though i think Mike Skinner claims he's never listened to 'em.
