Composed by N. Persad



"You should have been at Woodstock";
I hear it everyday.
"You would have loved the Isle of Wight
As well as Monterey.
The problem is, my young friend,
And I don't mean to be unkind, Looking at you
I'd say that you were born in the wrong time".

I watch film of the '60's, I bet they had such fun.
I'd love to go and join them but sadly, I'm too young.
It really does upset me. I know without a doubt that
Life was so much better then. I really did miss out.
I'll never get to see Queen live,
I missed my only chance.
I'll never have my passport stamped
When I go to France.
Too late, i was born in '78.

They had Jimi Hendrix, Marvin Gaye and Cream,
Interesting clothes and the "Swinging London" scene.
I don't remember Tiswas, I just make do with clips.
I wish I saw the Beatles live before they had their hits.
If I only came to be a little bit more soon,
I could have seen The Who on stage
When they still had Keith Moon,
Too late. I was born in '78.

Perhaps it's just nostalgia: the memories are good?
Because people say those times were good,
But I suppose they would.
If I'd been alive back then, I wouldn't be unique;
I'd just look the same as everybody on the street.
At least I have a microwave and a colour TV.
And things are slightly better now with race equality.
It's great to be born in '78!
