The Courteeners - Not Nineteen Forever Lyrics

She tried to peel me off the pavement
Tried to insinuate sometimes
I am in danger of going too far
Asked me would I like to go for tea and toast
Get your hand off my thigh
In the car she turned to me and said

You're not nineteen forever, pull yourself together
I know it seems strange but things, they change
Older woman and a younger man
Both of them doing all they can

Tried to get your attention all night long
Asked you once, I asked you twice, asked you four times
If you'd like to dance to that song
Front crawled the crowd down the stairs
And I followed you out in the rain, nowhere to be found
Never mind, you'll probably never look that pretty again

You're not nineteen forever, pull yourself together
I know it seems strange but things, they change
Older woman and an ever so slightly younger man
God bless the band, they're doing all they can

You're not nineteen forever
You're not nineteen forever
You're not nineteen forever
It's not big, it's definitely not clever
