KinksKinks – Did Ya lyrics
Went for a walk down the old kings road,To see if anybody was there.But there was nobody home at 3 bywater street,And they had sold cadogan square.And I remember myself in my tie dye sweater,And my hipster corduroy flares.As I knocked on doors,And walked down one-way streets that led nowhere.Ah, did ya ever think it wouldnt last forever? Did ya ever think that it would get this bad? Did ya ever think that everything would get so crazy? Now the chelsea drug store needs a fix,Its in a state of ill repair.And my cuban heels are hurting my feet,Just to add to my despair.La-di-dahs drove mini cars in the summertime.(in the summertime)Now theyre towed away for parking on a double yellow line,And they cant pay the fine.(did you ever think)Did you ever think wed all believe the hype? (did you ever think)Did you ever think the classes all would revert back to type? (did you ever think)Did you ever think the system ever really got it right? Oh, baby.They filled us full of false illusions and promiscuity,And they led us down that class-less road to mediocrity.As we walked down that alley way of hope,We thought wed found the motherload,But we were led like lambs to that promise land,With all the debts that we would owe.Once trendies posed for tourist pictures in the summertime.(in the summertime)Not content with taking polaroids, they purchased all the property that they could find,And Ive just sold mine. (did you ever!)Did ya ever think that this green and plesant land,(did ya ever think)Would end up in the bottom of some garbage can,(did ya ever think)A dustbin full of promises and half-hearted plans.Oh, baby.Did ya, did ya, did ya ever think? Did you ever think? (in the summertime)Now miseries and groaners moan and reminisce about the good old times and whine, whine, whine.(did ya ever think)Did ya ever think when things were really fab,(did ya ever think)That wed be looking through a dustbin for a dog-end to drag,(did ya ever think)And sleep on park benches wrapped in plastic bags.Oh, baby.Did ya ever think that it would get this crazy? (did ya ever think)Did ya ever think that it would get this way? (did ya ever think)Did ya ever think that we would pay the price for being lazy?
