90’s Kid

Intro:

Yo, I’m tired of all these Noughties Kids man…
Claiming to be 90s Kids
Like just coz you were born in the 90s, doesn’t make you a 90s Kid
I’m a 90s Kid. I know what it was like.
You weren’t there man… YOU WEREN’T THERE!

Verse 2:

I’m not a 90s baby or a 90s man, I’m a 90s kid who likes 90s jams
Before you could download tunes to your hard drive, when you had to buy ’em from Woolworths or Our Price
I was alive in the Golden Era of hip hop but was too young for it at the time
I’d love to say I was a fan of Biggie and 2pac, but I wasn’t till after they died
Coz I was too young to listen to Snoop Dogg, Dr Dre and the Wu Tang Clan
But I was a fan of the Outhere Brothers, Babylon Zoo and that tune Scat Man
I remember in the school discos where Snow Informer was always spinning
Way before we knew what it meant, when we thought “Licky boom boom down” meant rimming
I never drank Alize, had Versace shades or wore Moschino
But you might have seen me with a Panda Pop, in my Naff Co jacket and Spliffy jeans though
I didn’t know about ecstasy, I thought Mitsubishis were a type of car first
Coz the only sweets I was eating, were Opal Fruits before they were Starburst

Chorus (x2):

This ones for all of my 90s kids, all my 90s guys and 90s chicks
Who rocked 90s clothes and 90s kicks, watched 90s TV and 90s flicks
This ones for all of my 90s kids, who liked 90s music and 90s hits
And if you weren’t born before ’96, you don’t know what the 1990s is

Verse 3:

I was a 90s kid and a 90s gamer, back when it was still Nintendo or Sega
Way before Playstation and X-Box, when your only choice was a plumber or a hedgehog
Back then if you were stuck on a part that you could’t get past and you needed an answer
You couldn’t just go online you had to go and ask Patrick Moore on Gamesmaster
Back when toys were meant to be played with, not Ebayed or stored in a basement
Pogs, Boglins, Mighty Max and Monster in my Pocket were just some of my favourites
Ring Raiders and Micro Machines, these were the toys of my generation
And this is also when WWF still stood for World Wrestling Federation
So don’t claim you’re a 90’s kid, if all you are is a 90’s baby
Coz to be a real 90’s kid, you need to have be born in the 1980’s
But pretty soon the tables will turn and before you know it I’ll be in my forties
And it’ll be your turn to write a song, about what it was like growing up in the Noughties

… But ’til then…

Chorus (x1):

This ones for all of my 90s kids, all my 90s guys and 90s chicks
Who rocked 90s clothes and 90s kicks, watched 90s TV and 90s flicks
This ones for all of my 90s kids, who liked 90s music and 90s hits
And if you weren’t born before ’96, you don’t know what the 1990s is

Outro:

Yeah! All my real 90s Kids, this one’s for you!
But to all my non-90s Kids, please don’t take offence
I’m just playing around
And to tell you the truth
I’m just jealous how young you lot are.
