Ian Dury & The Blockheads – Rough Kids lyrics

Rough kids play rough games and kick tin-cans
They walk in certain style
Rough kids shout rude names and write slogans
They leave thier feet out in the aisle

Rough kids have bother and make nusience
They c** on someone else's fence
Rough kids give m-m-m-m-mama no obedience
You know, you know they've got no sense

Come on now rough kids

Enough, enough
So rough, so tough
Rough kids
Rough kids
Rough kids, all right, all right, all right

Rough kids move in teams, don't play away
They go 'round knocking off some stuff
Rough kids let of steam and go astray
Enough, enough, to be so rough

Enough to be rough kids
Enough to be rough kids
Enough to be rough kids

Rough kids
Rough kids
Rough kids
Rough kids
Rough kids

I'm gonna smash your face in
