The Lyrics

When the relics of the ancient times come back to haunt you...
Someti-imes I fee-eel that I shou-ould
Throw awa-ay some clothes, shou-ould
Toss away ev'rything that loo-ooks like 80's re-efugees
The pants with fla-ares (whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Shirts with ne-eon gla-are
Colours so-o damn bri-ight
When the door's open, I can't tell it's night

O-Once the-ese pants were cool (ti-ight pa-ants)
No-ow I-I look the fool
These dated duds, despise 'em
Don't even wear them on theme nights, dude
Cause I'll have to-o say they're mine, that's balls
Dated du-uds, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Dated du-uds

Thou-ough I kno-ow I've got to-o
Throw awa-ay, it's hard to
Toss away, ev'ry pie-iece brings up such strong memo-orie-ies
These da-ayglo ti-ights?
I had my fi-irst kiss on that ni-ight
And so it's tough, should they sta-ay?
And then I saw all those lamé so-ocks, lame

I-I thou-ought those were cool (du-umba-ass)?
Ma-an, I-I was a fool
These dated duds, must ditch 'em
And there's no end of online pictures
If those mem'rie-ies, I want to recall
Dated du-uds, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Dated du-uds

Not retro, please
I'd rather be nude than wear these
I need to know: why'd we all go
And say this was fashion? Such a joke

Dated du-uds, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Dated du-uds, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Dated duds, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Dated duds, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Gotta ditch these dated duds (these dated duds)
Gotta toss these dated duds (these dated duds)
Dated du-uds, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Dated duds, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Dated duds
Dated du-uds

Glad I'll never have to deal with this, if only because I rarely buy clothes, so it's unlikely I'll have to deal with outdated trends.

I thought this was going to be a song about bad dates. Maybe I'll do that version of it lol

5's for the parody but '80s clothes AND music are infinitely better than either the clothes or music of today!
