WOMBATS


1996 Lyrics

I had no cares in the 1990s
I knew of no downfalls
The war was breaking out all around me
My concerns were with prank calls

She kissed me on the cheek
She kissed me on the cheek
Right in front of the older kids
When my self-belief, my self-belief
Wasn't scarred by the modern itch

'Cause now it feels like
We kissed with one eye on our TV set
And the more I give, the less I get
Using fairground rides just to spark her smile
This little hit to miss, bring back 1996, bring back 1996
So hard to beat those teenage kicks, bring back 1996

We were cloning sheep in the 1990s
We were building telescopes
And sugar filled the whole of my body
As I edged it all to grow

I kissed her on the cheek
I kissed her on the cheek
Just to impress the older kids
But my self-belief, my self-belief
Wasn't lost in the modern glitch

'Cause now it feels like
We kissed with one eye on our TV set
And the more I give, the less I get
Using fairground rides just to spark her smile
This little hit to miss, bring back 1996, bring back 1996

Stop talking, stop talking
I need a lover not a friend tonight
I'm leaving, I'm leaving
I'm not cut out for the modern life

I'll never beat those teenage kicks
I'll never beat those teenage kicks
I'll never beat those teenage kicks
Bring back 1996
