Five Get Over-Excited by The Housemartins

Fun, fun, fun
(Jeremy)
Me, me, me
(Fifi)
Take, take, take
(Jeremy)
Fun, fun, fun
James Dean posters on their wall
(Five killed in the car-crash)
What a sad little end to it all
(Five killed in the car-crash)
Last seen having lots of fun
(Five dumped in a river)
Barefoot and on the run
(Five dumped in a river)
I am mad from Scandinavia
I want a guy in the London area
He must be crazy and Sagittarius
'Cause I'm Leo and I'm hilarious
Fun, fun, fun
(Jeremy)
Me, me, me
(Fifi)
Take, take, take
(Jeremy)
Fun, fun, fun
Last seen drinking Daddy's own beer
(Five poisoned over dinner)
Singing Abba's, 'Mamma Mia'
(Five poisoned over dinner)
Drop dead watching Thunder birds fly
(Five get over excited)
Poster on their wall says, 'Why?'
(Five get over excited)
I am guy from Camden Town
My hair is curly but I gel it down
My clothes are black but my bread is brown
I'm really into early Motown
Fun, fun, fun
(Jeremy)
Me, me, me
(Fifi)
Take, take, take
(Jeremy)
Fun, fun, fun
Feigning concern, a conservative pastime
Makes you feel doubtful right from the start
The expression she pulls is exactly like last time
You've got to conclude she just hasn't a heart

I have also loved this song since I was 15. And I never knew what it was about. And reading the lyrics didn't help. Totall gibberish. But gibberish out to fun music and sung by a dude with a unique voice. The houemartins make me sad and happy at the same time. It's like when you are a teenager your brain is full of glue. Anything you experience sticks to it and becomes part of your whole being. Then you get older and the glue hardens and loses its ability to make things stick. So all you are left with is a head full of things that stuck to you when you were younger. When you were a different person. And they are useless to you now. All they do is remind you of the person you once were. That's the house martins to me

A very insightful comment. Im not sure what its about. Except five dudes who died in a car wreck. Im sure its political since everything they sing is political. It is lilely about a real event. I too feel happy and sad at the same time with them. Always have.
