About Wide Boy lyrics. Album The Riddle (1984). Don Snow, Sheri Kershaw. Dennis Smith, Nik Kershaw. Nik Kershaw, Andy Richards, Tim Moore. Dave Land, Stewart Curtis. I read it in the papers It must be true It said "girl gives birth to alien boy" But do we see a photo of this bundle of joy -- no, no I saw another headline It knocked me flat It said "dinosaur found alive today" It's easy when you're talking the rhetorical way It's what the papers say You know. it's right It's down there written in black and white -- for you It's what the papers say You know it's true They're responsible citizens and wold they lie to you?
The Riddle is Nik Kershaw's second album. It was released in 1984 by MCA Records. The Teds never really lost their cool or their presence in the music industry - many of the young boy bands today wear very similar attire, and esp drainpipe bottoms!. Love this song even though I never really understood what is was all about in 84 as an 11 year old. Just another wonderful Nik Kershaw strum.
And with your symmetry teeth and your California tan I'm here to tell you that you ain't no Superman You just a wide boy. Wide boy. Submit lyrics correction →. Like.
