About Five Get Over Excited

Five Get Over Excited is a song by The Housemartins released as a single from their album The People Who Grinned Themselves to Death. The followup to their #1 UK hit "Caravan of Love" (although it was preceded by the US-only release of "Flag Day"), it peaked at #11 on the UK Singles Chart in June 1987. Although it was the first single without drummer Hugh Whitaker, who left the band before this song and album was recorded, Whitaker appears in the music video for the track, where he is kidnapped by new drummer Dave Hemingway. Music writer Rikki Rooksby notes that the track's "anti-hyperbolic title" is "positively revolutionary", as the use of hyperbole in pop lyrics is pervasive but never admitted. In 2007, the Manchester Evening News described the tune as "another corking chart hit that stands as a beacon amongst the dross of the 1980s."

Fun, fun, fun
(Jeremy)
Me, me, me
(Fifi)
Take, take, take
(Jeremy)
Fun, fun, fun

James Dean posters on their wall
(Five killed in the car-crash)
What a sad little end to it all
(Five killed in the car-crash)
Last seen having lots of fun
(Five dumped in a river)
Barefoot and on the run
(Five dumped in a river)

I am mad from Scandinavia
I want a guy in the London area
He must be crazy and Sagittarius
'Cause I'm Leo and I'm hilarious

Fun, fun, fun
(Jeremy)
Me, me, me
(Fifi)
Take, take, take
(Jeremy)
Fun, fun, fun

Last seen drinking Daddy's own beer
(Five poisoned over dinner)
Singing Abba's, 'Mamma Mia'
(Five poisoned over dinner)
Drop dead watching Thunder birds fly
(Five get over excited)
Poster on their wall says, 'Why?'
(Five get over excited)

I am guy from Camden Town
My hair is curly but I gel it down
My clothes are black but my bread is brown
I'm really into early Motown

Fun, fun, fun
(Jeremy)
Me, me, me
(Fifi)
Take, take, take
(Jeremy)
Fun, fun, fun

Feigning concern, a conservative pastime
Makes you feel doubtful right from the start
The expression she pulls is exactly like last time
You've got to conclude she just hasn't a heart

The Housemartins

The Housemartins were an English indie pop band that was active in the 1980s. Many of the Housemartins' lyrics were a mixture of Marxist politics and Christianity, reflecting singer Paul Heaton's beliefs at the time (the back cover of London 0 Hull 4 contained the message, "Take Jesus - Take Marx - Take Hope"). more »
