Prefab Sprout – Adolescence Lyrics


Adolescence – what’s it like?
It’s a psychedelic motorbike
You smash it up ten times a day
Then you walk away

It’s moonlight on the balcony
It’s pure hormonal agony
Bad poetry its greeting card
– Will the Bard

Adolescence – why is it so?
Ask someone else, how should I know?
It’s a song I sang and then forgot
Too long ago

When I was a Romeo, in love forever
Unable to forget some Juliet
Romeo, Romeo
Inconstant never

It’s knives flashing in fountains
Poison Capulets, letters that go astray
Molehills bigger than mountains
Your preset narrowly defined your way

Adolescence – what’s it for?
It’s for keeping your nerve-endings raw

While relay teams of fevered dreams
Escape each pore

It’s moonlight on the balcony
It’s pure hormonal agony
Bad poetry its greeting card
– Will the Bard

Poor Romeo, in love forever
Unable to forget Juliet
Romeo, Romeo
Inconstant never

It’s knives flashing in fountains
Poison Capulets, letters that go astray
Molehills bigger than mountains
Your preset narrowly defined your way

Adolescence can be rough
I hope your heat-shield’s tough enough
I hope that no one dares to scoff
When you’re brassed off

Adolescence, crimson red
Fireworks inside your head
Are three times brighter than the sun
Girls – have some fun
