The Lyrics

I remember when I was a nipper,
I had chilblains all the time.
Then I got a touch of frostbite.
It was the winter of 69.

We wore balaclavas and mittens
And still shivered in our shoes.
Then when we got frostbitten
Sure knew how to sing the blues.

When I look back that winter seemed to last for ever.
And if I’d had the chance I never would have been there.
Those were the worst days of my life
Back in the winter of 69.

Weren’t no use complaining
When you had an outside toilet.
Spent my evenings cutting newspaper
San Izal would really spoil it!

Then I met you in the queue at Walmart
You told me you’d be waiting for ever
That’s when I knew I’d never
Forget the worst days of my life.
Back in the winter of 69.

Man we were true to form
We were cold and hungry
All we needed was to get warm
Thank God nothing lasts for ever

And now the times are changing
Freezing Christmases have gone
Sometimes I look back and wonder
How we ever got along.
