The Lyrics

I don't know why, but I like this one. Pacing's off on one line, by my calculations, but that's about it, so please comment and vote.
I heard that the disco died back in '82.
Then came in a wave I heard, it was brand new.
Thank god that now the disco thing is all done, through.

Oh-a oh.

There was a new wave that came in the mid-eighties.
The songs were written While turning Japanese.
Synthesizers and keyboards outweighed afros, you see.

Oh-a oh.

I went to disco
Oh-a oh.

I heard Billy Idol.
Here to go is the eighties genre.
Here to go is the eighties genre.

New wave came and saved us all.
Oh-a-a-a oh.

And now we meet next to an abandoned disco ball.
I gotta tell you, no one misses it at all.
And now everyone's out having a ball.

Oh-a oh.

New wave was so fun.
Oh-a oh.

Until there was punk.

Here to go is the eighties genre.
Here to go is the eighties genre.
Might as well like it while it's here,
for it will soon be new stuff, I fear.
Oh-a-aho oh,
Oh-a-aho oh.

Here to go is the eighties genre.
Here to go is the eighties genre.

Might as well like it while it's here,
for it will soon be new stuff, I fear.
Heavy Metal's already here.
That much is already clear.

The new eighties genre
The new eighties genre
Here to go is the eighties genre.
Here to go is the eighties genre.
Here to go is the eighties genre.
Here to go is the eighties genre.

Here to go is the eighties genre. (The new eighties genre)
