i met her at a ballroom gig
she said my braces were to big
i said "i like your 2tone clothes"
she said "i like you're broken nose"

i bought her alot of drinks that night
she bought me nothing but a fight
she said i wasnt mister right
its over its over its over

it was a skinhead love affair
you know a skinhead love affair

i took her down to last resort
she stole a shirt,i went to court
she said she'd always stand by me
even when i did D.C
i thought about her everyday
like lovers do when they're away
she never came to visit me
its over its over its over

it was a skinhead love affair
you know a skinhead liove affair

on the day that i got out
my skinhead werent about
she got herself a solger perm
joined the ?
i got down on bended knee
and asked her if she'd marry me
she said "SKINHEAD CANT YOU SEE?"
its over its over its over

it was a skinhead love affair
you know a skinhead love affair

just a skinhead in love
just a skinhead in love
a skinhead,a skinhead, a skinhead in love
im just a skinhead in love

(repeat to end)

    A skinhead falls in love with a girl who doesn't reciprocate his feelings. He takes the wrap for her and goes to prison, but upon release, finds that she no longer follows the skinhead culture and doesn't want to be involved with him anymore. Despite it's dancy rhythms and singalong chorus, it's a truly tragic number.
