IDLES – White Privilege lyrics

[Verse 1]
How many optimists does it take to change a lightbulb?
None!
Their butler changes the lightbulb

[Refrain]
Always poor
Never bored

[Verse 2]
The S.O.C. want Timmy’s student loan back
He’d happily oblige but he’s used it all on gack

[Refrain]
Always poor
Never bored

[Verse 3]
One miscarriage
Two abortions
One degree
Seven jobs
Sally sucks the socks off Jesus sobbed

[Refrain]
Always poor
Never bored

[Verse 4]
I could have danced with another
Cause she passed out on your stairs

[Refrain]
Always poor
Never bored

[Chorus]
Swing batter, batter, batter
Swing batter, batter, batter
Swing batter, batter, batter
Swing

Compensate with humour
Or if really bored then sing

[Refrain]
Always poor
Never bored

[Chorus]
Swing batter, batter, batter
Swing batter, batter, batter
Swing batter, batter, batter
Swing

Compensate with humour
Or if really bored then sing

[Refrain]
Always poor
Never bored

[Outro]
Yeah!
Dance till the sun goes round
Yeah!
Dance till the sun goes round
Yeah!
Dance till the sun goes round
Yeah!
Dance till the sun goes round
Yeah!
Dance till the sun goes round
Yeah!
Dance till the sun goes round
Yeah!
Dance till the sun goes round
Yeah!
Dance till the sun goes round
Yeah!
Dance till the sun goes round
Yeah!
Dance till the sun goes round
Yeah!
Dance till the sun goes round
Yeah!
Dance till the sun goes round
Yeah!
Dance till the sun goes round
Yeah!
Dance till the sun goes round
Yeah!
Dance till the sun goes round
