lyrics

When I was a kid I used to play in trees
Stung by bees, with wounds on my knees
A donut was a pleasure, only treasure was my cat
I wasn’t hard to please
When I was a kid I used to hate the boys
I tried to annoy them, I stole their toys
We poked and we joked and the game was on
But what’s going on now?

I presume you’re twelve years old, bring the drugs to school
A babyface with a cigarette, do you think that’s cool?
Do you think that’s cool?

Build a camp, hide and seek
Make friends on the playground
Eat pancakes every week
That’s what kids should do now
Draw your favorite cartoons
It’s 4 o’clock, time for Looney Tunes
You shouldn’t be drunk right now
Go act like a child yeah
That’s what kids should do now

We have to put our trust in this new generation
But this situation, isn’t all right
At night they go to parties with a fake ID
This is bothering me
When I was a kid my parents used to say no
I could not go, I just stayed home
Pissed off I went to bed, go to sleep they said
But what’s going on now?

I presume you’re twelve years old, bring the drugs to school
A babyface with a cigarette, do you think that’s cool?
I presume you’re twelve years old, bring the drugs to school
A babyface with a cigarette, do you think that’s cool?

Build a camp, hide and seek
Make friends on the playground
Eat pancakes every week
That’s what kids should do now
Draw your favorite cartoons
It’s 4 o’clock, time for Looney Tunes
You shouldn’t be drunk right now
Go act like a child yeah
That’s what kids should do now

about

BlunderBox Duffel, Belgium

Blunderbox brengt sinds enkele jaren zowel eigen nummers die een frisse mix van indiepop en rock zijn, als enkele covers met een twist.
Nu is deze groep van vijf jeugdvrienden uitgegroeid tot een samenhangende en geoliede machine met weliswaar een hoekje af.
Met als thuisbasis repetitiekot The Box, beraadslagen deze vijf sloebers snode plannen om hun muziek te delen met de rest van de wereld.
