How old are you?
Are you old enough?
Should you be in here watching that?
And how old are you?
Are you owning up?
Should you be in here with?

Twenty four hour party people plastic face 'carn't' smile the white out
With the twenty four hour party people plastic face 'carn't' smile the white out

You come(ah) beaten
So why don't you join in?
You come(ah) beaten
So why don't you join in with?

Twenty four hour party people plastic face 'carn't' smile the white out
With the twenty four hour party people plastic face 'carn't' smile the white out

I can see you through the door.
You been chewing bread and water.
And there's a grudge on you - you know not ought not to have.
You've been running around the racetrack
You've been running around the racetrack
Put that mother to bed to bed
Put that mother to bed

With the twenty four hour party people plastic face 'carn't' smile a white out
Cos' I have to wait for you to conduct.
Press the pause of the self destruct.
With the twenty four hour party people plastic face 'carn't' smile the white out
With the twenty four hour party people ...

Now better you're the white out ...

I need full-time
I don't need part-time
I need 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
3, 6, 5 all the time
I need 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 third time
I don't need a part-time
I need a 3, 6, 5

Oh - No days off ...

Twenty four hour party people plastic face 'carn't' smile the white out ...
I need 1, 2, 3, 4,5,6,7
3, 6, 5 all the time
I need 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 third time
I don't need a part-time
I need a 3, 6, 5
