lyrics

We said we’d never wear beige

We said we’d never wear beige

If living must result

In turning into an adult

At least we’d never act our age

We said we’d never wear beige

We’d never reach that stage

Never let our glamour drop

When the party has to stop

And conformity is all the rage

I didn’t realise that when we were apart

We were taking different routes

I didn’t realise that while I took to art

You took to wearing puce

I thought we said, I thought we said

I thought we said, I thought we said

I thought we said, I thought we said

We’d never be caught dead

You said you’d never wear beige

You said you’d never wear beige

And you’re surprised that I’m appalled

I can’t believe you have the gall

To act as though nothing has changed

How can you stand there in beige

How can you stand there in beige

You traitor
