The odd time I'm asked to get messages,
I just float around from shop to shop,
To get bread, milk or a bottle of sauce,
I'll ask the boys, do you want to go on the hop?
I like going out with my friends,
Whether I have a bike or not,
Chill out, chill out, throughout the day
I'm going to school on my scooter
I'm going to sound my hooter
If you get in my way
You have to kneel and pray
Don't mess with the boys
When they get their new toys
Rip it up – Rip it up, Yup Yup
Rip it up Rip it up Yup Yup
Running around Dunnes Stores,
Knocking the food on the floor
The security comes running after us,
Chasing us out the door
Getting on the bus to Ballyfermot,
We're going to Lambs' Chinese
Starvin' with the hunger,
"Can I have chicken curry please?"
Heading down the N27
At 180 kilometres an hour
Get the speed wobbles – Crash!
I fall on the ground – I've lost all power
Me mate Spellman dropped the ignition
Ha ha Micra on a mission
Me mate Brandon is in the passo
Heading to Coolock for a half ounce
I pick cotton after I went Shopping
Poor people beggin' so I went leggin'
Down to O'Connell Street
So I started a fight
I hit him so hard
He woke up the next night
He got the fright of his life
He went to sleep that night
The Story Seeds project supports young people to write with the aim of enabling them to understand their own life story – their personal, circumstantial and emotional story and their place, be it geographical, social or imaginative.
The pieces included here are a small sample of the creative work from the Story Seeds project.
