Lyrics of the Day: "Beat Boys in the Jet Age" By The Lambrettas

Lambrettas

Dormant for a decade now
We’re back to take another bow
You’ve heard us on the radio
Patched in though the years
And so you’d best be well prepared for us
Cos we can’t be ignored
It’s just modern music that we play
Tomorrow’s sounds from yesterday

Beat boys in the jet age
So sure in what we do
Beat boys in the jet age
And the beat is aimed at you

Foundations have been carefully laid
The preparations all are made
we’re sweeping all in front of us
Re-cycling the vinyl dross
You’d best believe we speak the truth
A finger on the pulse of youth
You’ll hear it in the pubs and parks
The rhythm of a nation’s heart

Beat boys in the jet age
Too restless to contain
Beat boys in the jet age
And the songs remains the same

Re-makes of a time goes by
Your contributes will testify
That this time round won’t be the same
This year’s chance your claim to fame
Concern yourself with making ground
Old and new has been re-found
You’ve seen the writing on the wall
You’ll soon discover that we’re all

Beat boys in the jet age
So sure in what we do
Beat boys in the jet age
And the beat is aimed at you

(Album released on this date in 1980!)
