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. After seven consecutive UK Top 10 singles between 1979 and 1981, the band broke up. Their 1983 song "Free Nelson Mandela" was a No. 9 U… more »

You've done too much 
Much too young 
Now you're married with a kid 
When you could be having fun with me 

Oh no, no gimme no more pickni

You've done too much 
Much too young 
Now you're married with a son 
When you should be having fun with me 

We don't want, we don't want 
We don't want no more pickni 

Ain't he cute? 
No he ain't 
He's just another burden 
On the welfare state 

You've done too much 
Much too young 
Now you're married with a kid 
When you could be having fun with me 

No gimme,no gimme,no gimme no more pickni 

Call me immature 
Call me a poser 
I'd love to spread manure in your bed of roses 
Don't want to be rich 
Don't want to be famous 
But I'd really hate to have the same name as you 

You've done too much 
Much too young 
Now you're married with a kid 
When you could be having fun with me 

Gi we de birth control, we no want no pickni 

You've done too much 
Much too young 
Now you're chained to the cooker 
Making currant buns for tea 

Oh no, no gimme no more pickni 

Ain't you heard of the starving millions 
Ain't you heard of contraception 
Do you really a program of sterilization 
Take control of the population boom 
It's in your living room 
Keep a generation gap 
Try wearing a cap
