Didn't think I'd have to choose
Didn't think I'd wear brown shoes
Didn't think that I'd ever have to read about this in the news
You gonna have a go
Well I don't want to know
I just thought that I should try and say hello to those who'd

Never exist without being generic
You have to impress our bovine public
You'd never exist if you wasn't generic
You have to impress our bovine public
I'll never forget how all this begun
And I will never regret a thing I have done but
You would never exist without us

So maybe I do not have the time
Fair-weather friends of mine
A year's a long time 
You're doing nothing with your life
I heard you felt alert
Well I'm hoping that it hurt
'Cause we've spent too much time in groundwork
To be ground in to the dirt by those who'd

Never exist without being generic
You'll have to impress our bovine public
You'd never exist if you wasn't generic
You'll have to impress our bovine public
I'll never forget how all this begun
And I will never regret a thing I have done
But you would never exist without us

So maybe I do

Well you say nothing
So you'll always mean nothing to me
And if what you say means nothing
Then what you say will always mean nothing to me

D'you think I have the time fair-weather friends of mine
A year's a long time to be doing nothing with your life
I heard you felt alert
Well I'm hoping that it hurt
'Cause we've spent too much time in groundwork
To be ground into the dirt by those

Who'd never exist without being generic
You have to impress our bovine public
You'd never exist if you wasn't generic
You'll have to impress our bovine public
I'll never forget how all this begun
And I will never regret the one thing I've done
But you would never exist without us

So maybe I do

The Cribs

The Cribs are an English three-piece indie rock band originally from Wakefield, West Yorkshire. The band consists of twins Gary and Ryan Jarman and their younger brother Ross Jarman. They were subsequently joined by ex-The Smiths and Modest Mouse guitarist Johnny Marr who was made a formal member of the group in 2008. Marr would remain as part of the band until 2011; his departure was officially announced on 11 April through the band's website. Despite returning to the original trio, the band currently enlists David Jones of Nine Black Alps as a second guitarist for live shows. The band, who first became active on the concert circuit in 2002, were initially tied to other like-minded UK bands of that time, most notably The Libertines, by a British music press … more »
