lyrics

There you go filling your boots,
skin so thin it’s like a birthday suit.
Letting your hair down, nothing to lose.
Wearing in your pretty pants.

There you go strutting your stuff.
Too much is never enough.
They call you blind and you call their bluff.
You look buff in your pretty pants.

More power to your elbows, power to your fists.
Shouting your pout to the power of a kiss
and telling and yelling, taking the risks.
All the more power to your pretty pants.

When the mood shifts down a gear to peeved
pull up your socks, roll up your sleeves.
Inspiration is the key
that turns the lock from misery to fun.

It’s begun and it’s your shout.
No doubt what it’s all about.
Don’t hang fire, cast your clout
but hold on tight to your pretty pants.

Age restrictions don’t apply.
Stop the clock - time of your life.
Turn the dials to sky high,
flying by the seat of your pretty pants.

If you’ve given up on heartache and dead flowers
and you’re sick of just walking round the houses.
If you’re trapped inside just ticking off the hours
go ask the jo jo man where he gets his trousers.

‘Cause timing’s of the essence, time’s the thrill.
No time like a present of time to fill.
Keep clocking the watch and make sure you’re still
prancing in your pretty pants.

No nightmare caking a make-up face.
Plain Jane fame is the dream you chase.
You know what you mean and no means just
getting out your pretty pants.
Keep wearing out your pretty pants.
Keep stepping out in your pretty pants.
Keep leaping about in your pretty pants - oh yeah
keep on dancing you pretty pants.
