Lyrics of Childhood Memories

Jesus! The weather was so good today
And but I believe a change is on the way

And a little electricity won't hurt
And no a little electricity won't hurt

Especially when we're all out of gas
And coal and oil, and steel and cash

But a little electricity won't hurt
And no a little electricity won't hurt

And your politeness it could kill
And it's more than likely that it will
First it was getting better now it's getting worser
And then it's getting wetter, now the ice age is complete
So everybody go...

And God help us if the radiation leaks
And God help us if nobody knows for weeks

And but a little electricity won't hurt
And no a little electricity won't hurt

But your politeness it could kill
And it's more than likely that it will
First it was getting better and then it's getting worser
And it's getting wetter better call the hearse-a

And can we move a little faster, go a little further
Move a little faster
Go, and everybody go up
Everybody go down
And everybody go this way
Everybody go that way
Everybody go
And we go, and we go, and we go...

A little childhood memory...


Comments




'Childhood Memories' was the fourth single to be released by British Sea Power. It is a much more downtempo track than previous releases and feature keyboards heavily. Acoustic guitar is prominent throughout the track. Despite its low chart position and not being included on any album (reducing the numbers who know the song), it is a live favourite and is still a regular in the band's setlists. The lyrics contrast with child-like structure of the music, dealing with meltdown of a nuclear power plant. This track was previously known as 'Memories of Childhood!'. The 7' release was wrongly labeled as having 'Favours in the Beetroot Fields' as the flipside, whereas it is actually 'Strange Communication'. It peaked at a lowly number 90 on the UK Singles Chart.
