Tatty Laces 03:27
All of the Chavs and the Ravers all the ones lost in the pavements. We won't let your culture slip away. All of the fucked and the faithless clingin' on to tatty laces. We can't let your culture slip away. This is a homage to the raggamuffin'-big-nuthins. A big-up to the take-away-tray-generation. Harry met Sally, in a nightclub in Newport. Down chippy alley, was a world that we all thought was wrong... ... but it's "all right on the night" yeah! Where are the hungriest-junglists who only wanna get pissed? And big-little town's ups and downs just for multiple rounds with the clowns? Did you ever see the DJ look so down? All of the Chavs and the Ravers all the ones lost in the pavements. We won't let your culture slip away. All of the fucked and the faithless clingin' on to tatty laces. We can't let your culture slip away. Daisy chains pursuing fame who used to live in Pentrebane; the only way to make a name was singin' in Womanby lane. It was always 'tunes up in the stars' now it's chasing girls in bars. But the same old faces are still at large, bouncin' on the neon-tar. Baby blue tracksuit - release me from this acne, Dragon Taxis - pick me up from Llanrumney, St Mellons to Ely - put your hands up if you feel me. All of the Chavs and the Ravers all the ones lost in the pavements. We won't let your culture slip away. All of the fucked and the faithless clingin' on to tatty laces. We can't let your culture slip away. All the nutters and space-cakers, 'alf and 'alf munchers and wasters. Please don't let the city get you down. All dealer types and money makers, local characters 'repping' Cathays, cause you're the only interestin' people in this town. You're the only interestin' people in this town.

No.1 03:23
He strolled out of the barbers Pleased with the cut he’d recieved Dressed in the finest sporting garments Tailor made by cherokee She was articulate and outspoken Knew every swear word under the sun And when it comes to devotion He was her number one Number one Number one He said “that girl with the hoop earings really got it going on” They worked hard on their relationship They were shotters on the weekend They needed some money to pay for some shit They had none of it to spend And it gets cold up in Llanedeyrn They weren’t exactly having fun They may need to arrange a wedding While he’s still her number one Number one Number one He said “that girl with the hoop earings really got it going on” Baby born within the year They got his name out of a catalogue She said please don’t run away now my dear Colloquial dialogue He didn’t want to upset her There was nowhere for him to run He just wishes that he never met her He used to be her number one Number one Number one He said “that girl with the hoop earings really got it going on”

Unlock Cardiff Alleys Unlock them now Unlock Cardiff Alleys That guide me on my way home So what about the people? Do they not have a say? Are we not all born equal? We’re being caged in more and more each day So when you’re young, where will you go? When someone’s bolted shut the places that you know - Se eu fosse Abraao , não hesetaria nem mais um minuto Não, podem crer que não. Com o meu bastao abria as cancelas Das ruelas que impedem as pessoas de passar ou circular por elas. Porque ‘e das ruelas que eu e outros se servem para poderem ir para onde quiserem, Falarem o que quiserem, jogar ‘a bola ou apanhada, ir para a escola ou para casa, Ou ate mesmo um passeio com a namorada dar. Porque não, não entendo e porque não, Quem tem medo compre um cao ponha luz e um portao de metal ou de betao No quintal mas no entanto evitar o que ‘e importante what??? Que a felicidade, a eficacia e eficiencia dexem de existir na nossa vivencia what???? Não sou jesus, muito menos Deus já pus isso na minha cabeca mas os meus principios de vida devem ser pelo menos no minimo dos minimos parecidos com os seus. Fechar as ruelas não ‘e a solucao para acabar com roubos, assaltos e fumar welas se nelas ocorrem ou não crimes, morrem primos ou cachimbos são fumados ou vendidos decidirmos por cancelas nas ruelas ‘e impedirmos as pessoas de passsar ou circular por elas INCORRECTO nos somos todos humanos e como humanos que somos vamos fazer o CORRECTO apostar na educacao e na formacao gratuitamente e crime deixara de existir - I was Abraham (from Bible), I wouldn’t hesitate one minute more, no! No, people won't believe me? With my bat, I would unlock the gates of the alleys that stop the people from walking, circulating through Because it’s from the alleys that I and others serve themselves to be able to go everywhere, Talk freely, play football, hide and seek, going to school or home Or even taking a walk with the girlfriend. Why not? I don’t understand why not/ Whoever is afraid, buy a dog, put up lights and gates of metal or concrete In the backyard. But when it comes to avoiding what really matters WHAT??? (No one does it) That happiness, effectiveness and efficiency ceases to exist in our lives WHAT??? (Is that what they want??? Maybe) I am not Jesus, even less GOD I alredy put this to my mind but my Priniciples of life must be at least the minimum of the minimum similar to THEIRS. Unlock the alleys it’s not the solution to end the robberies, assaults and smoking marijuana If occur in them (the alleys) or not crimes, brothers are killed or marijuana is smoked or sold Deciding unlock the alleys it’s unable people from walking or circulating through them INCORRECT we are all human beings and as human beings we are let’s do what it’s CORRECT Investing into education and training for free and the crime will no longer exist
