So it was Jeremy in 1983
IN his ocean pacific I
Who got a bloody knee
On his skateboard
In the half-pipe
In the backyard
That Tuesday night

And I'm only gonna pierce my left ear
And I've been workin' on this mustache all summer long
And my favorite band will always be Tears for Fears
And I'm gonna wear a pink tux to the prom

Cutting class through the first floor window
He's driving fast 'cause he never did a thing slow
And I look up to my big bro
'Cause in the 80's all the ladies grabbed his hand and never let go

Doo doo, a doo doo doo
Pink tux to the prom

I am gonna wear a pink tux to the prom
Live without a care...what could possibly go wrong?
When you're president of the breakfast club
And you're not hesitant to fall in love
To throw it all away to fall in love with the 80's
'Cause you threw it all away to fall in love with the 80's
