My Days Kids Of Today - Poem by jason roberts

Im soon to be 44 im not that young any more.
My parents used to eat bread and dripping not me you must be tripping.
I used to wear a Parker coat when televisions didnt have a remote.
In my day we went out to play there was no playstaion 3 or that thing called a WII.
We had a football and a skipping rope we didnt sit around smoking dope.
Back then we wore flairs long before you knew Tony Blair.
There was the time of the miners strike long before the mountain bike.
I used to ride a chopper or jump up and down on an orange space hopper.
There was no hoover called a Dyson a boxer bread pigeons a nuttah called Tyson.
I used to listen to Wham not that crap Spandau or Duran Duran.
We watched a programmes like Blakes 7 and Mokey magic looking back they were kind of tragic.
Kids say this is how we roll I remember when everyone was on the dole.
They want to wear Superdry and Gstar raw they dont get it there parents are god damn poor.
We used to sing lets all go to tescos where so and so gets their best clothes.
Some would wear a hand me down and look like a right clown.
Kids of today aint never been broke they are all a fucking joke.
