Two Fingered Salute lyrics

Your Dad was a fighter discharged at 23,
Went and died of the black lung then you buried him at sea

My 70s trousers are flapping in the wind,
I salute with two fingers, you punch with your rings,
But you always take the time to take good care of me
Do we have to long for simple times?
If we had them would we make the same mistakes?
You've been standing by yourself for an hour
The wind don't blow down the mouthpiece of these phones
We go down the Rye, it's full of skinheads sniffing glue,
We salute with two fingers and run and hide in your room
Cause you always take the time to take good care of me

Do we have to long for simple times?
If we had them would I make the same mistakes?
I've been standing by myself for an hour,
No mobile phone, just your message at my home
Single celled and under close gaze,
Amoebas crawl along as you go 'bout your day
You turn your head and it's all gone
Do we have to long for simple times?
You think we wouldn't make the same mistakes?
I was standing by myself for an hour, no mobile phone,
left your message at my home
Now we long for simple times
