Lyrics of Stereotypes

The suburbs they are dreaming
They're a twinkle in her eye
She's been feeling frisky since her husband said goodbye
She wears a low cut T-shirt
Runs a little B&B
She's most accomodating when she's in her lingerie

Wife-swapping is your future
You know that it would suit ya

They're stereotypes
There must be more to life
All your life you're dreaming
And then you
Stop dreaming
From time to time you know you should be
Going on another bender

The suburbs they are sleeping
But he's dressing up tonight
She likes a man in uniform
He likes to wear it tight
They're on the lovers' sofa
They're on the patio
And when the fun is over
Watch themselves on video

The neighbours may be staring
But they are just past caring

The stereotypes
There must be more to life
All your life you're dreaming
And then you
Stop dreaming
Time to time you know
You're going on another bender

There must be more to life
Than stereotypes


'Stereotypes' is a song by British band Blur and is the opening track to their fourth studio album, 'The Great Escape'. It was released on 12 February 1996 as the third single from that album, charting at #7 in the UK Singles Chart (see 1996 in British music).

'Tame', one of the single's B-sides, is sometimes viewed as Blur's first push into the sound that they would develop greatly on their next album, 'Blur'.
