Declan McKenna – I Write The News Lyrics

Declan McKenna I Write The News Lyrics

That’s so sick
I write the news
I know you can’t make sense of my southern views
Yeah, London prices may seem stiff
But they’ll roll you a spliff so you can’t refuse
I write the news
I know you can’t wait to bail on the southern rent
And the crime is high and so am I
And the Labour kids shout to what extent?
I write the news
You’ve made way for some common abuse
Free gel pens, well, at whose expense?
All the children need now is their ones and twos
I write the news
You’ve been hangin’ with some Kensington dude
He likes you true but he cannot see
You’ve been pickin’ his stems and gettin’ rich for free
You’ve been pickin’ his stems and gettin’ rich for free
You’ve been pickin’ his stems and gettin’ rich for free

I write the news
I know you can’t make sense of my southern views
Yeah, London prices might seem stiff
But they’ll roll you a spliff so you can’t refuse
I write the news
I know you can’t wait to bail on the southern rent
And the crime is high and so am I
And the Labour kids shout to what extent?
I write the news
You’ve made way for some common abuse
Free gel pens, well, at whose expense?
All the children need now is their ones and twos, well
I write the news
You’ve been hangin’ with some Kensington dude
He likes you true but he cannot see
You’ve been pickin’ his stems and gettin’ rich for free
You’ve been pickin’ his stems and gettin’ rich for free
You’ve been pickin’ his stems and gettin’ rich for free

I write the news
You’ve been hangin’ with some Kensington dude
He likes you true but he cannot see
You’ve been pickin’ his stamps and gettin’ rich for free
I write the news
Everybody else gets told what to do
They know Jack and I know the facts
So you better listen up or I’m calling you rude
I write the news
I don’t waste time talkin’ to you
Comes up quick till I feel sick
From worryin’ about what the bad guys do
I write the news
All you fools better scream like I do
If you get scared, then you ain’t free
I got a cracked glass screen, that I can’t keep clean
I got a cracked glass screen, that I can’t keep clean
I got a cracked glass screen, that I can’t keep clean
