Song Lyrics

We’re a band from the north side of Dublin called the U2
Formerly the Hype
This is our first single

Oh yeah!

Monday morning
Eighteen years of dawning
I say how long, how long
Say how long, how long

It was one dull dawning
I woke the world with bawling
I was so sad, so sad
They were so glad

Yeah I got spirit
I got soul
I got some big ideas
I’m out of control
Ooo oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh

Boys and girls
Go to school, and girls
They make children
Not like this one

Yeah you got spirit
I got soul
With some big ideas
They’re out of control
Ooo oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh

Yeah, I got spirit
I got soul
With them big ideas
We’re out of control
Ooo oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh…

(Open up now)

The Arden Amara Estates
On bass, the jazzman of the group
Adam Clayton

Rosemount Avenue, Artane
The man who gave us our first job
Tries every day to keep us in it
On the drums, Larry Mullen Jr.

From St. Margaret’s Park, Malahide
On guitars and a whole lot of shit that even he doesn’t understand
The genius of the group, The Edge
I’ll tell you something about this dude, he’s out of control
That dude, he’s out of control
He’s out of control
He’s out of control

I fought fate
There’s blood at the garden gate
The man said childhood
It’s in your childhood

One day I’ll die
The choice will not be mine
Will it be too late?
You can’t fight fate

Yeah, we got spirit
We got soul
Got some big ideas
We’re out of control
Ooo oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh

Oh yeah
