Fake Tales of San Francisco
More point to a wedding disco
There's a super cool band yeah
And all the weekend rockstars are in the toilets

(Kick me out, kick me out)
(Kick me out, kick me out)
(Kick me out, kick me out)
I don't want to hear your
Fake Tales of San Francisco
And there's a few bored faces at the back

A young girl's telephone beeps
Oh she's running to the streets outside
"The band were ****ing wank

(Kick me out, kick me out)
(Kick me out, kick me out)
Yeah but his bird said it's amazing, though
Is the proof that love's not only blind but deaf
He talks of San Francisco, he's from Hunter's Bar
But I'm sure that's far

You're not from New York City, you're from Rotherham
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Get off the bandwagon and put down the handbook
Get off the bandwagon and put down the handbook
