The Rebel Black Dot Song of the Day: SKAfter Party

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, "The Magic of Youth" from The Magic of Youth (The Last Angry Rude Boy)

"Do things on shoestrings to make the ends meet,
Cut costs and corners in order to eat,
Low-income housing they couldn't afford,
Bills and collectors that they just ignored.

"While the pressures were mounting the tensions would rise,
She had been counting on some of the lies
That he had been telling her being the truth,
The fighting and yelling, the magic of youth,
The magic of youth!

"He hit the pipe, she hit the pole,
Stereotypes that were out of control…"
