Five Get Over Excited
The Beautiful South & The Housemartins Lyrics


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

This song is brilliant. What a band The Housemartins were. Pure class, fantastic videos, and uplifting music - what more can one ask for?

I have been singing this non-stop for the past 2 weeks, my friends are so sick of it but I’m not!

One of the all time great British pop bands! Saw them live a few times and they were brilliant! Pop with a socialist conscience - bring it on!

I stuck this on my record player full volume when I got back from my last O’level in 1986. Loved it. 😀

I love how cool they look in buttoned up polo shirts, jeans and jackets. Classic 80s casual terrace fashion. The song is pretty good as well.

They filmed part of this down the street where I grew up, I remember the night well. We were all kicking a ball about and these vans pulled up and then they got out of one of the vans and had a kick about with us before commencing filming.
