Oh I wish I was a punk rocker
With flowers in my hair
In seventyseven and sixtynine
Revolution was in the air
I was born too late
Into a world that doesn’t care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker
With flowers in my hair
When the head of state didn’t play guitar
Not everybody drove a car
When music really mattered and
When radio was king
When accountants didn’t have control
And the media couldn’t buy your soul
When computers were still scary
And we didn’t know everything
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker
With flowers in my hair
In seventyseven and sixtynine
Revolution was in the air
I was born too late
Into a world that doesn’t care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker
With flowers in my hair
When popstars still remained a myth
And ignorance could still be bliss
And when God Saved the Queen
She turned a whiter shade of pale
My mum and my dad were in their teens
And anarchy was still a dream
And the only way to stay in touch
Was a letter in the mail
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker
With flowers in my hair
In seventyseven and sixtynine
Revolution was in the air
I was born too late
Into a world that doesn’t care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker
With flowers in my hair
When record shops were still on top
And vinyl was all that they stocked
And the super info highway was
Still drifting out in space
Kids were wearing hand me downs
And playing games meant kick arounds
And footballers still had long hair
And dirt across their face
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker
With flowers in my hair
In seventyseven and sixtynine
Revolution was in the air
I was born too late
Into a world that doesn’t care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker
With flowers in my hair
I was born too late
To a world that doesn’t care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker
With flowers in my hair
