my lyricsbox
The last lot make a few mistakes
They didn't die young, they got big waists
We got let down at the back of Earls Court
We swore that night, we'd never get caught
'Cause we were smarter than they were, they were

We started out with guitars and hate
With our rooms in the clouds, we could hardly wait
Our legs apart, our arms held up high
The stage caught fire the charts blew up
And we play worse than they do, they do

Promises, promises
Do you remember the promises, promises, I do?
Do you remember the promises, promises, I do?

We made our shirts with sprays and knives
Then we saved up for weeks for Malcolm's strides
Our hair was short we said what we thought
We'd never be scared, never be bought
Never sell out like they did, they did

Promises, promises
Do you remember the promises, promises, I do?
Do you remember the promises, promises, I do?

Soon you'll get your gear from "Marks and Sparks"
Punks'll take over the, "Top of the Pops"
Think you're havin' a real cool time?
Watch out kid, you're next in line, oh yeah

Do you remember the promises, promises, I do?
Do you remember the promises, promises, I do?

Where were you in '75?
When there weren't no gigs and we were jive
(Promises, promises, promises remember)

No one gave a shit for our Rock 'n' Roll dream
A&R men laughed re-release, 'The Creem'
(Promises, promises, promises remember)
And they thought we were stupid
And they thought we were stupid
And we promised, we'd get back, get back

Do you remember the promises, promises?
Do you remember the promises, promises?
What I do, what I do, what I do?
What I do, I do, I do?
What I do, what I do?

Promises, promises, promises remember
Promises, promises, promises remember
Promises, promises, promises remember
Promises, promises, promises remember

Promises, promises, promises remember
Promises, promises, promises remember
Promises, promises, promises remember
Promises, promises, promises remember
Promises, promises, promises remember
This song is from the album "Generation X".
