A New England
Billy Bragg Lyrics


I was twenty one years when I wrote this song
I'm twenty two now, but I won't be for long
People ask when will you grow up to be a man
But all the girls I loved at school
Are already pushing prams

I loved you then as I love you still
Though I put you on a pedestal,
They put you on the pill
I don't feel bad about letting you go
I just feel sad about letting you know

I don't want to change the world
I'm not looking for a new England
I'm just looking for another girl
I don't want to change the world
I'm not looking for a new England
I'm just looking for another girl

I loved the words you wrote to me
But that was bloody yesterday
I can't survive on what you send
Every time you need a friend

I saw two shooting stars last night
I wished on them but they were only satellites
It's wrong to wish on space hardware
I wish, I wish, I wish you'd care

I don't want to change the world
I'm not looking for a new England
I'm just looking for another girl

I don't want to change the world
I'm not looking for a new England
I'm just looking for another girl

Looking for another girl
Looking for another girl
Looking for another girl

I love the way it sounds like he's busking in a damp, dark underpass - lined with filthy, brightly coloured 1970s tiles.

Spot on Mr Villain

Some engineers and producers are the real genius. Nirvana wouldn't be anything without vic and Steve albino. They saw a raw sloppy band that they could record. It's all about potential.

BOOM

And yet it sounds as fresh and raw as the day it fell out of his feelings and landing up on the fretboard of his guitar

he was

Oi! Ain't Dead

First two lines of this song are taken word for word from the Simon and Garfunkel song The leaves that are green. Seems Mr Bragg is a plagiarist.
