The Specials

The Specials (sometimes called The Special AKA ) are an English 2 Tone ska revival band formed in 1977 in Coventry, England. Their music combines a "danceable ska and rocksteady beat with punk's energy and attitude", and had a "more focused and informed political and social stance" than other ska groups. The band wore mod-style "1960s period rude boy outfits (pork pie hats, tonic and mohair suits, and loafers)." In 1980, the song "Too Much Too Young", the lead track on their The Special AKA Live! EP, reached number one in the UK. In 1981, the unemployment-themed single "Ghost Town" also hit number one in the UK Singles Chart.

Looking at the world, through lace curtains 
Would they like you out there? You're not certain 

Scared of walking down the street 
You never know who you might meet 
Or who you might bump into 
They're out there waiting for you 

Housebound 
You daren't go out 
Because you're housebound 
You don't want to go out 
Because you're housebound 
There's no way out 
Because you're housebound 
You daren't go out! 

Rearrange the ornaments when you're feeling down 
Push the hoover round and round what a lovely sound! 

Housebound 
You're all left out 
Because you're housebound 
You don't want to go out 
Because you're housebound 
You scream and shout 
Because you're housebound 
You daren't go out! 

The moths inside the wardrobe 
The mirror on the door 
Love your latest outfit 
That's what friends are for! 

Housebound! 
You daren't go out 
Because you're housebound 
You don't want to go out 
Because you're housebound 
You scream and shout 
Because you're housebound 
You don't go out! 
Housebound 

You're living in doubt 
Because you're housebound 
You don't want to go out 
Because you're housebound 
There's no way out 
Because you're housebound 
You don't go out! 

People calling just distract you from the endless talk 
Of changing channel, brightness, volume, colour and contrast 
There's a curfew on you, you're losing all contact 
You just don't know what to do, You're caught in a housetrap! 

Housebound 
You're all left out 
Because you're housebound 
You don't want to go out 
Because you're housebound 
You scream and shout 
Because you're housebound 
You daren't go out
