A New England
by Billy Bragg

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

Billie Joe has brought me here.

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

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.

God hand Mishima

LOVE that rough early copy lo-fi sound all of Billy's songs have.

The Thin Red Line

A working class sell out f@cking wanker, can't sing either or play the guitar

Mr Villan

I could never quite place the performance style. You just did it for me. Thanks.

Zoinks Scoob

This has to be one of my favourite songs ever. I wasn't alive when this song was made or played for the first time, but fucking hell is it worthy of the modern era.
