This song is by Graham Parker and appears on the album Human Soul (1989).

When I was a boy I never felt The weight I'm feeling
I had a crowd around me And that was that
I'd get on the bus and go to the Ata every weekend
And feel the ultraviolet show the fluff up on my collar

They'd play Otis Redding Sam and Dave and Wilson Pickett
Prince Buster The Skatelites and the Bees Would be buzzing their horns
The boys would dance like robots The girls would walk a fashionable slink

Now here I am like some old man Trying to recall the way the way it was
Then suddenly that boy is me And I'm right back there once again

I'm in soultime
Oh yeah

We never tried to change the world It didn't need changing
We were the in crowd yeah And that was that
Graduating from a Lambretta to a Triumph Herald car
Was the only future in sight Oh and that was that

One night there was a rumble and I got head butted yeah
But those boys could not take that girl away from me
I took a handkerchief and wiped the blood way from my nose
And got right back on the dance floor And that was that

Now here we are one or two scars Trying to recall the way the way it was
But now I know where I am coming from Ooh yeah I say

I'm in soultime
Ooh yeah soultime
