Saint Etienne – Teenage Winter lyrics

Amy checks the shopping list
Pedal bin, washing-up racks, Santex
And she goes to the baker's to buy a loaf
Aah, she keeps forgetting
It's changed into the Tropicana Tanning Salon

And in the charity shop, Mrs Brown sits at the counter
Pricing down some old stock:
"The Moon's A Balloon", two copies of "Every Loser Wins"
"Noel's Blobbyland"
(Deluxe edition)

There's not much left on the doorstep recently
Something to do with ebay, Johnny reckons
He's bidding on it now for a Subbuteo catalogue 81-82
He'll win it, put it in a drawer and forget he ever bought it

Holding on to something
And not knowing exactly what you're waiting for

Now, teenage winter's coming down
Teenage winter throws a gown
Over every place I've been
And every little dream, forever

Phone rings in Gary's flat
(Can I speak to Mr G Stead, please?)
He hangs up and takes Tony the milk
See you in the 'Hat & Fan' at 7?

Gary can't believe the Claremont Road pitch
Is going to be covered in executive housing
He talks about the Newcastle game
Bontcho's debut but Tony can hardly hear him

They took the jukebox out
And the Aussie barstaff
Are playing the Red Hot Chili Peppers
He tells 'em what he thinks
He manages to keep it clean, he buys another round

Holding on to something
And not knowing exactly what you're waiting for

Now, teenage winter's coming down
Teenage winter throws a gown
Over every place I've been
And every little dream, forever

Mums with pushchairs outside Sainsbury's
With tears in their eyes
They'll never buy a Gibb Brothers record again
Their old 45's gathering dust
With the birthday cards they couldn't face throwing away

Teenage winter coming down
Teenage winter coming down
